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.

I’m not overly keen on baths but when I do have a relax I like to have a really bubbly bath. I’m more impressed at how my bath bubbles up than a fizzing bath bomb. Baths are supposed to be bubbly!
I was immediately drawn to the smell of The Comforter because it reminded me of my beloved Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly which has sadly become discontinued. It’s also a supersized Bubble Bar which means more bubble for my buck.
Price: £4.95 each, for 2 uses.

After seeing this online and talking to Global Makeup Artist Amanda in store on one if my visits, I knew I had to try this product. As you know, I’ve been looking for a day time foundation to just apply quickly or to wear under powder when my skin doesn’t need a lot of coverage. To be honest, cheaper brands haven’t worked for me because the formula changes too quickly in the bottle or it feels horrible and effects my skin. So with this in mind, I went back to basics, looking at new products from brands I know and use daily.
This product is water based, so it hydrates skin and combats oil, it has coverage which is buildable and evens out the tone of skin, which is great for when I do need more than just a sheer tint, and products can be applied on top for if I want a matter look. Sounded like the product I’ve been looking for.
Time Trialled: Around 6 months.
Colour: Nude 02. Continue reading “Pixi Beauty H20 Skin Tint Review”

Before receiving this product I rarely used conditioners as they often make my hair feel greasy and flat after a day. I haven’t thought about using a leave in conditioner as a substitute so I was keen on trying this product.
Having coloured hair I should ideally be using some sort of conditioner, and my hair is naturally wavy, so as you can imagine it does get tangled and is hard to brush.
Time Trialled: 3 Months
Price: £16.90 Directly from Unite Hair
Unite’s products are not tested on animals and the product smells fresh and clean. The consistency is quite light weight and comes out as a mist which is absorbed into the hair quickly. It instantly feels soft and doesn’t have a sticky residue or texture. It can also be used as a heat protector for hot hair tools and is a UV protector.

I decided to have a shirt hiatus from the blogging world. So what happened while I was away?
I decided to take a break after becoming very ill on and after my Birthday. I spent in London for my Birthday, then after my Birthday I was struck with the flu followed by a winter cold, which led me to miss lots of blogging opportunities and events. With my work and university work on top of this I decided to take a short break to clear my mind and get better, which has helped me a lot! This week I headed back to london with my University to visit some art galleries and museums, did a little shopping at my usual shops then headed back to wet and windy Wales.
Here is some of what has been going on in my life in pictures…
I was lucky enough to see some amazing works in the Tate, Victoria and Albert Museum and even spotted some Moschino jewellery on show.
For my birthday I stayed in London, went shopping and did general tourist things such as visit Madame Tussauds.
At the moment in University I’m doing printing which is a lot of hard work, I’m creating woodcut pieces, hand painted screen prints and etching plates. We’re creating these with the human body as a theme, it’s time consuming but knowing its hand made is rewarding once you see the work finished.
Before I got ill, I was able to go to the Student Lock in in Cardiff, which was a lot of fun but very busy! I was invited to attend by Superdrug to see what they had to offer on the night and what kind of Christmas gifts they had in store.
Starting from this week I’ll be blogging again about make up beauty and life in general. Apologies for the lack of posts everyone!
