Kat Von D ‘Bow N Arrow’ Gift Set Review

thumbnail_image1.jpg

After hearing great things about Kat Von D‘s Ink Liner and the Ever Lasting Liquid Lipsticks, I couldn’t wait to try them out for myself. On a recent trip to Barcelona I managed to find a Sephora and stock up on some goods. I was so excited to find that they were selling the Bow N Arrow gift set as it featured miniature versions of both of these products.

Ink Liner – Trooper

I fell in love with the Ink Liner straight away. The thin tip on this liner allows application to be painless and easy. I also found that unlike many other liners I have tried, this product does not smudge, which is great when you’re using this product in a rush.

As advertised, this product lasts all day and does not transfer. The colour of the liner doesn’t fade at all, which leaves your makeup in tact for hours. If you’re looking to try out a new liner I would recommend you try this product. I will definitely be purchasing the full size product when this one runs out.

Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick – Bow N Arrow

I am so impressed with this liquid lipstick. Unlike many other products I have tried, this liquid lipstick does not dry out your lips. The colour of this product is the perfect nude, suitable for both day and night. I also love how this product stays put after eating and drinking.

The size of this product is so handy as I can pop in every handbag. By purchasing this gift set, it has definitely made me want to try out other shades in this range.

If you’re looking to try out Kat Von D products, I recommend you purchase this set. The price is very reasonable and it gives you a chance to try out two products without having to commit to a full size product. I purchased my set from Sephora, but they are also selling these online at Debenhams for anybody in the UK.

Have you tried out any products from this brand? It would be great to hear some your opinions.

Pure Potions Skin Salvation Daily Moisturising Cream and Intense Lip Balm.

If you’re looking for a natural hydrating product, then I would definitely recommend you check out Pure Potions. The brand itself features products made from ingredients which are as natural as possible, in order to reduce the risk of reaction which can occur with highly processed substances.

The products are all vegan friendly and do not include harsh perfumes, parabens, silicones, palm oil or any other nasty chemicals that may irritate and upset your skin.

My skin can be very sensitive and I was pleasantly surprised to find that these products left my skin feeling hydrated and silky smooth without any unhealthy reactions.

Pure Potions Skin Salvation Daily Moisturising Cream

This moisturising cream is suitable for anybody who is prone to eczema, dry itchy skin, psoriasis and dermatitis.  I love how light the cream feels on your skin, along with the fact that it doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky and clogged up. I have used this cream every day for just over a week and I can already see a huge difference.

This cream is the perfect product for the up coming summer months as it allows moisture to return to drying skin. I applied this product to skin damaged by sun exposure and it definitely helped my skin to heal and maintain a healthy glow.

Pure Potions Intense Lip Balm

This lip balm is 100% natural and works wonders on my lips. It helps prevent lips drying out, along with leaving them feeling soft and hydrated. I found this product very useful for every day use in both hot and cold climates. Its the perfect barrier for harsh weather and pollution. If you’re looking for a natural lip balm that really does work, then I would recommend you give this product a go.

Pure Potions features many other natural skincare products on their website. I love the result I have received from these products and I would definitely recommend you check this brand out.

Technic Cosmetics Review

Technic Cosmetics Review.

After reading many reviews of this brand, I was excited to try out the products for myself.
Technic Cosmetics has an amazing range of cosmetics at very affordable prices.  The packing of their products is very sleek and light weight, which is very appealing and helpful if you travel a lot.

After trying a few products out for myself, I was amazed at the quality of the products, especially as they were all priced under £5.

I decided to write a review of the products I tried out – I hope you enjoy!

Get Gorgeous Highlighting Powder – Pink Sparkle £3.00

I am so happy that I had the chance to try out this highlighter as it is truly beautiful. This highlighter is extremely pigmented and unlike many other budget highlighters, this one leaves a glowing finish, without looking like you have tons of glitter on your face.

I have used this highlighter in both the day and night and it is extremely long lasting. If you’re looking to try out a budget highlighter I would definitely recommend you try this one out.

Face Powder Brush – £4.75

I used this Face Powder Brush which is also from Technic Cosmetics to apply my highlighter. Not only is the colour of this brush amazing, but it’s so soft and fluffy which I adore.

Juicy Stick Lipstick – Bare Necessities £2.99

I tried the Juicy Stick Lipstick in the shade Bare Necessities. The shade has a Nude/Caramel tone which I love. This product is long lasting and doesn’t dry out your lips which is great.

Eyeshadow Primer – Shimmer £1.99

This Eyeshadow Primer has an amazing highlighting base, which can be used on it’s own or under eyeshadow. I found this product really helps to stop eyeshadow from creasing and it also allowed my eyeshadow to stay in place all night.

Mega Lash – £4.00 

Mega Lash is described as a ‘mega volumising mascara’ and it does exactly that. I was surprised at how amazing it made my lashes look and it wasn’t clumpy at all. The brush on this mascara makes it really easy to ensure that every eyelash is covered and not squashed together.

Here is my finished look using the products.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review of Technic Cosmetics and I would love to hear if you have tried out any of their products!

My Favourite Face Masks

befunky-collage

Every week I dedicate time to pamper myself with a face mask. I feel that it’s the perfect way to relax, whilst keeping my skin clear and hydrated.
As winter is still upon us, I decided to write a post to let you guys know which face masks I use to protect my skin from the cold weather.

thumbnail_img_3083

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask £11.00

I first tried this product a few months back and I can honestly say it’s still the best face mask I have ever used. This mask is perfect for problematic skin as it leaves your skin feeling cleansed and silky smooth.

It’s a lifesaver when you need to get rid of blemishes fast and it has saved my life many times. The product has strong Tea Tree aroma to it, which leaves your skin tingly, which I love. Unlike many other Tea Tree masks, this one doesn’t leave your skin feeling dried out as it leaves a natural glow to your skin and soothes any redness you may have.

Timeless Truth – Herbal Rejuvenation Immortelle Mask £4.90 per mask

This sheet mask is perfect for anybody having problems with dry or aging skin. The mask itself does look very weird when it’s applied, but I guarantee it works wonders.

After just one use, the mask softens your skin and leaves it feeling naturally moisturised. This mask is perfect for a pamper night or if you just need to refresh your skin after being out in the cold.

thumbnail_img_3065

Garnier – Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask £1.99

This tissue mask has been advertised a lot lately and I feel that it is a cheap and easy way to bring your skin back to life. For £1.99 you can’t go wrong.

The tissue mask does also look very strange when applied, but when it’s removed you instantly feel hydrated. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and ready to go. The mask states that it leaves your skin feeling moisturised for a week, in my opinion the moisture definitely lasts a few days, but I would still continue to hydrate my skin with creams etc. throughout the week.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review and I would love to hear which face masks you love!

GBK Opening at The Mall Cribbs Causeway.

thumbnail_IMG_2797.jpg

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening of Gourmet Burger Kitchen at The Mall in Cribbs Causeway.

I was delighted to bring my boyfriend and my parents along with me as they were eager to try out the amazing menu for themselves. It’s safe to say that the restaurant did not disappoint.

thumbnail_img_2799

We decided to start with the Chargrilled Chicken Skewers, Chilli Fried Chicken Bites and the House Onion Rings. The service was great and we didn’t have to wait long before our food arrived.

After filling up with the starters, we then had to make room for our mains. My parents both ordered the Cajun Blue Chicken Burger, I went for the Bacon Pesterella and my boyfriend decided to go for The Mighty.  The Mighty consists of two 6oz patties, mature Cheddar, crispy bacon, garlic mayo, relish and dill pickle. It definitely stood up to it’s name as it was huge.

 

We were all so impressed with the food that we’ve already planned our next trip there.
It’s the perfect place to stop off and fill your face with great food and drink.

If you need to take a break from your Christmas shopping at The Mall in Cribbs Causeway Bristol, then I would definitely recommend you try out this place – you won’t be disappointed.

iS Clinical Bristol Blogger Event

Copy of isclinicalgroupwithwaterswish350dpi.jpg

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogging event hosted by iS Clinical in Bristol. iS Clinical is a brand which features some amazing cosmecutical products, all of which help the signs of aging and fight against skincare problems such as acne and rosacea. 

On arrival we were greeted with prosecco and nibbles, then we proceeded to find out more about the company. It was great to hear about this brand as I didn’t have much knowledge of it beforehand. After listening to the staff talk about the brand and products, I was definitely impressed.

 Many of the products are 95-98% botanical which is incredible. I love skincare products, especially those which don’t include harsh chemicals.

After spending the evening hearing about the amazing benefits, I decided that I would give these products a try for myself. The products which stood out to me the most were  Cleansing Complex and Active Serum.

We found out that Cleansing Complex has some amazing benefits including; helping to control acne and breakouts, effectively removing makeup, gently resurfacing and removing dead skin cells, along with deep cleaning the surface skin and pores without drying.
If that doesn’t make you want to try out the product then I don’t know what else would!

Before reviewing this product I thought I would try it for at least a week. Even a week isn’t usually enough time to see the true benefits of a product, but I am very impatient and wanted to let you all know how I feel about the products I received.

After a whole week of using this cleanser both day and night, my skin has visibly improved. The blemishes I had before starting the treatment have completely disappeared and I haven’t had any more breakouts which is incredible. I also feel my skin tightening and I feel fresh every morning.

If you’re looking to try out a new skincare regime, you should get yourself booked in for a consultant with the team – they all seem lovely and the products they offer are incredible!
