The Body Shop relaunch Cardiff

I was invited to the Body Shop Relaunch event with my friend Abbie to see how the shop looks now it’s had a makeover. It’s found inside St David’s Cardiff opposite the escalators that lead into St David’s 2. The Body Shop is all about being sustainable and eco friendly, so this was factored into its new and improved store.

The store even before entering looked a lot more open, brighter, and spacious. Read below to see how we both got on!

YSL Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer

I’m not a fan of silicone based primers, however I thought I would give this a try as I received it as part of a try me bag through my work.

I’ve never got on with silicone primers, mainly as it clogs my pores resulting in breakouts, slides my makeup around in oily places and just makes my makeup sit very poorly. However, I love trying things and being proved wrong and finding new things to use.

This primer retails for £32 for 30ml, comes in a glass bottle with gold lid which sits very nicely next to other YSL products.

The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Review

As a huge Zelda fan, I knew I wanted to get the Switch instead of the Lite version purely because I knew that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the game on a hand held system when the time came for me to invest in Breath of the Wild. Before I get any Zelda game, I try not to look up anything because I don’t want to ruin the storyline or gameplay so I went into playing this completely blind, not knowing what to expect. This post is based purely on the base BoTW game and not it’s expensions.

Link, with his Master Sword.

This review will not contain any spoilers! Feel free to read to see what the gameplay is like without ruining the story if you’re considering purchasing.

I paid £37.99 for this as I used my gold to pay towards it, as well as it being included in the Nintendo Shop Sale.

I heart revolution Heartbreakers Lucky Palette review

I’ve been having a massive makeup clear out during lockdown and have donated or given away items I haven’t used or gently used. My collection had a lot of nudes or same colour stories so it’s time to revamp and add additional colours and products I don’t have.

I realized I lacked green eyeshadows, and for my complexion and eye colour I adore greens, especially mixed with golds and plums. I had a quick browse in Superdrug and found this cute palette for just £5, and having some Revolution / I heart Revolution makeup previously I picked it up.

This is the lucky Palette from their Heartbreaker line, which consists of tones of green and pops of colour which complement each other.

 

See below what I thought of this palette!

Price: £5

Available from: Superdrug, Revolution

L’oreal Colorista Washout Yellow Neon review

I dye my hair, a lot, if you hadn’t noticed by now! Growing up with a mother as a hairdresser, from the age of 15 have always had some sort of colour in my hair. It is kind of like a security blanket, but I don’t feel myself if my hair is brown or blonde, it has to have some splash of colour in it!
I found the Colorista Yellow Washout on an end of line clearance and was skeptical. Some yellows I have had in the past such as Crazy Colour, W7 or Directions didn’t come out very yellow, even on the lightest parts of my hair. I initially got this colour to mix it in with reds and oranges but thought why not try it on its own to create my ombre hair.

I think I paid £3 for this, but normal Colorista products retail for around £7.

Femmeluxe clothing haul

I was contacted by Femmeluxe, an online fashion brand which do a selection of lounge wear, formal, and every day clothing to pick some items out to try on for you all! They had a good selection of sizes, ranging from an XS-XL, as well as 8-16. Prices are reasonable and affordable, such as jumpers for between £12.99-£20, and dresses which go for the same price range up to the £40 mark.

While picking my clothing, I wanted ones that I could really get a use out of that could be used for every day work clothes and going out. I chose a cropped jumper, a jumper dress, and a black popper shirt dress.

All sizes ordered were mixed sizes, but were a 12-14.

Take a look at what clothes I chose and how I got on with them below!

ION SEI Electric Toothbrush Review

A few weeks ago I was contacted by ION SEI to try out their electric toothbrush. This is a different direction to my usual posts however I do believe it is imperative to keep up good oral hygiene. After being born with no enamel on my teeth, to having a tooth growing in the middle of the roof of my mouth and having braces for 4 years to drag it to the right place, to some teeth removed for silly mistakes I’ve made in the past, all the way down to infected teeth, I’ve seen it and been through it all. So if anyone can tell you to look after your teeth, I can definitely stand up and say please do because the pain isn’t worth it.

This electric toothbrush retails at £149, this sleek and light weight toothbrush claims to help remove plaque build up, help get rid of bacteria in the mouth using an LED sensor, and you can even use the toothbrush without toothpaste.  Accessories such as additional heads can be bought for £12.99.

To find out how I got on with it, read on!
