Tuesday, 28 January 2014

A few weeks before Christmas, I received a very exciting email from one of the founders of English natural brand, Essential Care (who I've raved about before, particularly with respects to their amazing Coconut Candy Scrub, Gentle Herb Shampoo and their beautiful mineral Lipsticks).  The company are currently in the process of re-branding and have changed their name to Odylique.

Review & Swatches: B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colours in Prom, Goji & Fandango + GIVEAWAY!

Friday, 24 January 2014

Wander over to any brand's makeup counter/stand, and you're bound to find a range of lip crayons.  Everyone seems to have them these days and I for one, am slightly addicted to them.  I think it's because they bring out my inner child as they inject some playful fun into your daily makeup bag.

Review: Love Me Beauty Box - January 2014

Monday, 13 January 2014

Love Me Beauty announced back in December that there would be some exciting things happening with the box in the New Year, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on January's offering.  As always, there were three different menus to choose from, and this month I opted for no. 2.

Winter Skin Saviour: Conscious Skincare Soothing Hand Cream

Sunday, 12 January 2014

Hand cream is a daily essential for me, mainly because I can't bear having dry, papery feeling hands (it's almost as bad as dry lips *shudders*).  In this cold weather, you really need a hand cream that is going to cut the mustard and battle the elements for you which is where Conscious Skincare comes in.

It's been a while since Betrousse bought out a new beauty box, but yesterday, their new 'Absolutely Fabulous' box arrived on my doorstep with a weighty thud.  Like all of their other boxes, this one features only full sized products.  Let's take a closer look shall we?

I hope everyone has had a good start to the New Year!  If you went out last night or indulged at home too much, and feel a little worse for wear like I do (my head is oh-so-fuzzy right now so please forgive any spelling mistakes), then this is the pamper post to get you feeling like yourself again.
