La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo

As I am one of those unfortunate people with blemish prone skin I thought I would give this a try after reading some glowing reviews on Feel Unique. Do you get much better than an all in one moisturiser and blemish corrector? Surely not.
I have been using this product for a week or so now, I apply once before bed and once after washing my face in the morning (pre-makeup). It is very light and non oily which I love as I have fairly oily skin and avoid oily products as much as possible. My spots/imperfections are a lot less red than they were prior to using this product, I can certainly see why it is so popular! I have tried some of La Roshe Posays other products such as the face wash and cleansing gel, the French have definitely mastered the art of beauty products with results! I can't wait to try out the Ultra Fine Facial scrub, this is next on my list of things to try! I would 100% recommend this product to anyone, it can cater for all skin types and is very reasonable in price at approximately £15 at most stores/online shops.

I hope you all like this product as much as I do!


My Favourite Perfume (at the moment)

Evening All,

Thought I'd write a brief Sunday evening post on my favourite perfume at the moment. This is one my parents brought for me on whilst holiday and it smells amazing. I absolutely adore Narciso Rodriguez L'eau, I haven't had this bottle long and its nearly finished already. It has a very unique scent. 

For those of you like me who prefer a fresh floral smelling perfume with musky undertones rather than a more sweeter scented perfume then this is definitely for you. Another thing I love about this perfume is that the scent lasts for ages! You can spray it on first thing in the morning and by the evening the scent is still there but very subtle. 

I will most definitely be purchasing this product in the future and would also like to try the Narciso Rodriguez  For Her Intense. 

Barry M

Morning All,

Just a quick Saturday morning post while I'm half asleep on the sofa watching Saturday Kitchen Live, thought I would share with you the lovely nail varnish combination that I am currently sporting.

For years now I have been a loyal Barry M customer, I have tried the eyeliners, lipsticks and eyeshadows but my favourite product of theirs has to be the nail varnishes, they are good quality and last for a good week or so when applied without chipping. They also have a fantastic range of colours, effects and types of nail varnish! Recently I have decided to try out two of their Turquoise nail varnishes and I absolutely love how they look when applied together! I thought as christmas is nearing I would go for something glittery as it is slightly more festive than the standard plain nail varnish. Unfortunately at the moment my nails are not the lovely long length that they usually are! 

The shades I have chosen to mix today are 'Aqua Glitter' from the Barry M Glitter range and 'Guava' from the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine range. As you can see below the pair combined look fantastic together, they compliment each other really well as the colours are so closely matched. I will always be a big Barry M fan and I cannot wait to try out the new Glitterati range!



Dreamdots were kind enough to send me a trial of their ingenious overnight spot treatment patches. I have been using these for a week now and can already see a massive difference in my skin! Honestly even on day one I woke up the next day and was pleasantly surprised to see my spots had greatly decreased in size and lost their red glow. Its so reassuring to know that you can go to bed with a horrible red spot and wake up know it will practically be gone!

I will definitely be continuing to use this product, I have never come across a product quite like Dreamdots with their unique and innovative idea for getting rid of spots. In comparison to many spot treatments I have used this is one of the best products I have ever had the privilege to try. When pay day arrives I will certainly be purchasing some more! If you would like some more information on how this amazing product works or would like to purchase a pack of Dreamdots please visit I can assure you that you wont be disappointed!


L'Oreal Elvive ExtraOrdinary Hair Oil - For Coloured Hair

Winter is finally here and is starting to take its toll on my hair. I always find my hair gets drier at this time of the year so I thought I'd see what I could find in the hope of repairing it! After browsing the internet for some hair oil inspiration I finally decided on the L'Oreal Elvive ExtraOrdinary oil, I have been using it for about two weeks so far and I must sat I am very impressed. I have been applying this product either straight after washing when my hair is still damp or when dry after straightening to keep those fly away bits in place, as instructed two drops on the palm of the hand and then apply all over. Previous hair oils I have used in the past have made my hair feel very greasy after applying which is not something you want when you have just washed your hair! 

This oil is very light and leaves your hair feel luxuriously soft and smooth. I chose the one for coloured hair due the countless times my poor hair has been dyed and bleached. I'm one of those people who gets bored of my hair colour within a few days of it being coloured, however after my last dye (Ombre featured in previous post) I am quite contempt with my hair colour and will be leaving it alone to recover for a while, I haven't quite mastered the art of not straightening it though .. maybe one day I'll give it up. All in all I think this product is an excellent buy, it isn't too expensive usually retails at around £9.99 and when you compare this to many of the more expensive brands on the internet, it really is very reasonable.

Aussie Beach Mate Deep Treatment

When it comes to hair care products, it really doesn't get much better than Aussie. I am a very loyal Aussie customer. Shampoos, conditioners, treatments, conditioning spray, you name it. I have them all. Why spent loads on over-priced hair care products when you can spend £5 on this and it does job better than many of the expensive haircare products on the market today. This product is one of my favourites, it leaves your hair feeling and smelling absolutely amazing. Well i'm sure you can all agree Aussie do have the best smelling products EVER. I don't quite think any other hair product can quite compare to the unique scent that Aussie have mastered, it is truly is one of a kind. I use this product when my hair is in need of a little TLC - which at this time of the year seems to be quite frequently, after a while the endless straightening and blow-drying starts to take its toll on your hair.

I usually tend to apply this product to my hair whilst in the shower and leave on for 5 minutes or so, then wash off. I can guarantee this will leave your hair feeling heavenly and soft. I have just seen that there is now a Winter remedy treatment now available and I cannot wait to try it! I hope I have persuaded you all to purchase this fantastic product!


MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer

Hope you all had a good weekend! I spent this weekend in Brighton and just couldn't resist a bit of shopping while I was down there. I was wondering around Brighton shopping centre when I spotted the MAC store, as a MAC lover I wish I’d had the willpower not to go in but I just couldn't resist. Yes you guessed it; I did end up leaving the store with a couple of purchases one of which was the MAC Select Moisture Cover Concealer in shade (NC20). This is a fantastic concealer and I don’t think I’ll be trying any others after using this. The coverage isn't too heavy but enough to cover up those annoying spots and skin imperfections, unfortunately I currently seem to have a lot of these so this concealer has certainly been put to the test! The shade matches perfectly with my skin, previous concealers I have tried have been too thick and difficult to smooth over the skin however this is very easy to apply and doesn't look too heavy. It blends well with foundation and powder can be applied over the top with ease without creating that horrible cakey look that you get with some concealers. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with any skin type as it isn't oily and doesn't make the skin dry either.

I hope you will all try this amazing product! X
