Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment

Every so often I'm invited down to Ojon HQ to find out what's new with the brand and have a blow dry, which is an experience I always really look forward to as Ojon products are such a pleasure to use.  I'm a massive fan of the Colour Sustain Pro shampoo and conditioner - a phenomenal duo that leave my coloured hair gleaming - but as I've recently gone for the chop, I need to go for something a bit more volumising which is why I'm currently using t[...]

Mask Monday: Guinot Masque Essentiel Nutrition Confort

Last week I had pretty nasty man-flu (bad cold and a slight temperature) which has taken it's toll on my skin, which, by the end of the week, was dry, dull and a little broken out.  I've never used Guinot products before but I have heard of them and they've got such a great name, so I thought the Masque Essentiel Nutrition Confort was worth a shot to try and correct and balance my flu-battered skin. The Guinot Masque Essentiel Nutrition[...]

The d[...]

Quick Intro to Neve Cosmetics

I've been sent some products from Neve Cosmetics to try out so I'll be reviewing those soon, but I wanted to write a quick intro post to this adorable cosmetic brand since it's absolutely massive and not particularly well known here in the UK (it's Italian) so I thought you might like to know more. Neve Cosmetics started as a mineral make-up brand in 2009 and have added skincare and various colour lines since then.  All products are natura[...]

Schwarzkopf Essence Ultime Blonde & Bright Duo

I really rate Schwarzkopf products as some of the very best, budget-friendly hair care you can find; they're easily accessibly, sensibly marketed and you very rarely need to spend more than a fiver to get a decent product.  The Essence Ultime range is especially handy for finding some extremely affordable shampoo and conditioner duos for your hair type - I particularly rate the Omega Repair range if your hair is in need of a bit of TLC, and I've[...]

Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation

You might remember a while ago I participated in a beauty pass the parcel - here's my post - where I was treated to some lovely goodies from Jen, and these included the Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation.  Ever since trying the Sensual Skin Enhancer (review here), I've been desperate to the try the fluid counterpart, so I was extremely happy to get this in my package - thank you Jen! The Sensual Skin Fluid Foundation is a very[...]

Bourjois Spring Launches 2015

I've had these new arrivals from Bourjois in my possession for less than 24 hours, but I just had to share with you all the newness as there are some extremely exciting launches coming our way! Bourjois don't faff about when it comes to seasonal arrivals and their Spring releases are no different; there's a new base, lots of new nail goodies, a new lipstick format and some brilliant brow products too. The new foundation is the Nude Sensatio[...]

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

I really wasn't particularly excited about the new bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream as it sounded like the sort of thing I wouldn't get much use out of - basically a skincare-infused tinted moisturiser/BB Cream that'll provide moisture alongside minimal cover.  I always seek out high coverage in products as my skin is so prone to spots and post-spot scars, so I figured this wouldn't do much for me. The main selling[...]

New from Sisley: Phyto 4 Ombres and New Shades of Phyto Lip Twists

You just cannot beat Sisley packaging, can you? Just look at it! There are now nine shades of the Phyto Lip Twists in total with three new shades having recently been added.  The three new shades are Coral, Candy and Chestnut, and I've been trying out Coral and Candy. There's also a rather exciting new palette launch, the Phyto 4 Ombres which is available in two colourways, either the smokey greys and blues found in the Mystery palette, or[...]

Current Skincare Routine: March 2015

It's been absolutely ages since I shared my current skincare routine, and the reason for that is because I've spent months fine-tuning it to try and get it to the point where I'm pretty much happy with it.  Whenever I've considered writing up my routine in the past few months, there's always been something I haven't been too happy with so I wanted to make sure the flaws were removed before I shared my current skincare loves.  I will say, the big[...]

Boots No7 Core Collection Brush Set

At the start of the year I posted about the fact that Boots No7 were phasing out their old brush line and replacing it with a new range, which you can read about here.  The old range is now nothing but a distant memory, and in its place we have a relatively comprehensive line of brushes to cover every make-up need.  I said I'd follow up with some reviews on the brushes once I'd had a chance to play, so here's my review of the Boots No7 Core Coll[...]
