Glam Glow was recently launched in Boots in Cardiff and I’ve been wanting to try this blogger favourite for a while. I managed to get some samples from the counter to try at home myself to figure out what one I love the most before I purchase. I have really sensitive skin so with any skincare product I always make sure to try before I commit and purchase.
I was given Youth Mud, Super Mud and Thirsty Mud to try so at the time of using this my skin needed a bit of a pick me up and exfoliate so I used Youth Mud. I’m 25, so I feel like this is the age I should start using anti ageing and look after my skin a little more so I was keen to try it and possibly purchase if I loved using it.
1 tub of Youth Mud sells every 10 seconds in the US so I was keen to see what the hype was.
One 50g tub costs around £39 from Boots.

While shopping in Mcarthur Glen I managed to pick up an Ultraflesh blusher. I’ve heard good things about their products in the past so I was excited to be finally able to try a product of theirs.
I picked up a rose gold blusher, which is out of my comfort zone and a colour I want to try and wear. So basically this was a kill two birds with one stone moment for me! The colour didn’t look too bright and just had enough of a shimmering glow to it that didn’t look too much for me to handle.
I paid £4.99 for this, but it does retail for around $30.

Saturday the 3rd of December, if you happen to be shopping in Cardiff check out the W7 bus which is arriving in the town centre to show you W7 products, demo some products and have gifts with purchase when you purchase any W7 item from Peacocks, St Davids (While stocks last!).
The bus will be there from 10:30am – 5pm, with Miss Universe Great Britain and I’m A Celebrity star Amy Willerton sharing her hints and tips between 11:30am – 2pm!
I have been testing out some current W7 products myself and the quality for the price point is incredible. If you have the time definitely check out what they have to offer and have a little make over by one of the W7 artists on board. They have some fantastic dupes for higher end products, such as the Naked Palette by Urban Decay, called Colour Me Nude and Colour Me Buff, and Shy Beam by Benefit, called Night Light! They have over 650 products to choose from so you’re bound to find a purse friendly secret Santa gift or if you’re on a budget this is the perfect brand for you. An added bonus to W7 is that they are a cruelty free brand, which is perfect if you’re currently changing your make up bag to cruelty free items.
Check out what items W7 has before you hop on to the bus and make your wishlist now!
I was kindly sent a pack from Weleda to try their Skin Food, which is an all purpose cream for dry skin. I’ve known of Weleda products for a while but never had an opportunity to try their products.
Loved amongst celebrities such as Adele, Rihanna, Alexa Chung and Victoria Beckham, I was keen to get on board the Skin Food train to see if it could help with my dry elbows and knees.
What interested me about trying this was the fact the ingredients are all natural, and I am partial to a bit of lavender. I’m also a bit obsessed with hand creams and body creams and my skin changes so often I felt like these would be good points to put the Skin Food to the test to.
Price: 75ml = £9.95
Time Trialled: 3 weeks.

At the moment TK Maxx have some promotions going on some Korean Skincare and Beauty items in their store in Cardiff.
Sadly I’m living on a tight budget as it’s nearing the end of the month, however I picked up a few items to try as I’ve always wanted to try some Korean skincare. When it comes to skincare, Asians have it mastered.
At the moment TK Maxx are offering hair masks and face masks, face washes, skin cream, snail gel, products infused with gold or pearl, and a bunch of makeup.
I limited myself to £25 and bought just under that amount. I purchased two boxes of face masks, a lip tint, and a blusher. The blusher was the only item purchased that wasn’t Korean. I just simply couldn’t leave a Tarina Tarantino product behind!

I have a fight or flight mode when it comes to my mental health, and usually I choose flight. In the past I have gotten on random buses or trains and just gotten off at the last stop to have a walk around and clear my head, which can be a bit dangerous for me because I have no sense of direction. So when I need to de-stress or try to get away for a hour or two I try to stick to my area of Cardiff and have a look around charity shops. This way I don’t spend money that I usually don’t have, its kind of guilt free knowing it’s going to charity and can get my frustrations out by rummaging around boxes and coat rails of clothes. The best thing to do is go with an open mind and you’ll find some things you were totally not expecting.
My favourite place to go is Albany Road. I’ve heard that Canton is also great for charity shops as my friends have managed to pick up genuine bags and purses for under £5 because the shops think they’re fake, but I’ve yet to go there.
Click ahead to see what I’ve recently grabbed while having a travel around.
