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.

My Favourite Body Shop Skincare Products! 


I recently stocked up on my favourite skincare products and decided to share them with you guys.

I love The Body Shop, which is reflected on the fact that nearly all of my skincare products are purchased from there.

As my skin is very prone to blemishes, I tend to stick to the Tea Tree range as it works wonders for my face.  My skin also seems to dry up during winter, so I always make sure I have plenty of moisturising products at hand

Here is a quick run down of my favourite products from The Body Shop.

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion.

This product is perfect for when your skin is looking oily, shiny and full of blemishes.  After just one just this product you can definitely see the results. It reduces pore size and leaves your skin looking fresh and ready to go.

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Pore Minimiser.

This products works wonders when used with the Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion.
The Pore Minimiser does exactly what it says on the bottle and minimises any pores you have. I also use this product as a primer before applying my makeup and it really does keep everything in tact.

The Body Shop – Vitamin E Moisture Cream.

This face cream is my go-to product when my skin is feeling dull and dry. I use this product both day and night, leaving my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. The product itself isn’t too heavy on the skin which I love. It doesn’t make your skin break out either which is always a plus!

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts you will know how much I love this product. I make sure I use it at least once a week, as the results are incredible!
If you’re having a breakout just in time for an important event (which always seems to be the case for me), then I would definitely recommend you purchase this product.

I guarantee that you will see the results over night.
It has definitely helped me out in the past and I will continue to purchase this product until I die!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and it would be great to hear what other products you enjoy from The Body Shop!

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.

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!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation

thumbnail_img_2717

 Winter has arrived and my skin is slowly adjusting to this freezing cold weather.

Last week I decided that I needed to fix up my skincare and makeup routine in order to stop my skin turning into a dry and flaky mess.

Usually I love using thick and full coverage foundations such as Double Wear, but the truth is, a lot of the full coverage foundations I try can be VERY drying. I feel like no matter what I am wearing underneath my foundation, the moisture will always be sucked out and my skin is often left feeling deflated.
Obviously I’m not writing this post to slate Double Wear in any way because it’s usually my go-to foundation, but in the winter I just need something more suited to my skin.

So this is where Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet steps in. As I was passing through House of Fraser last week, I decided to try out some of the foundations Chanel had to offer. I explained to the lovely lady at the counter that my skin had become very dry lately, but that I still wanted a full coverage foundation. She advised me to try out Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet as it has more of a velvety texture (hence the name), rather than a thick, sticky texture.

 I was matched to the shade Beige 20, and after using it for a week, I can honestly say it’s one of the best foundations I have ever tried. Not only does it last all day, but it feels so lightweight on my skin and covers almost every blemish!

I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t tried this foundation before. It’s amazing how different my skin feels after using it. I finally have moisture back in my skin, even on the coldest of days. The texture of the foundation is so soft and easy to work with which I love.

If you’re looking to switch up your foundation for Christmas then I would definitely recommend this one – it’s amazing!

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!

Five New Skincare Favourites

When it comes to skincare I usually stick to the same old products, but this time I have decided to venture out and try some new products.

By doing so I have found some amazing products I feel that I should definitely share with you guys. So here are my top five skincare products – I recommend you give at least one of these a go!

No7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes.

When it comes to removing makeup I tend to try and cleanse and remove my makeup without using wipes, but when you’re in a rush or on the go, these wipes are just what you need.

Admittedly these wipes cost slightly more than the average face wipes, but you can definitely see the difference just after one use. These wipes remove waterproof mascara, along with the toughest of foundations. They also leave your skin feeling silky smooth and refreshed, which it what I absolutely love about them. If you fancy treating yourself to a new skincare product then you should definitely give these easy use wipes a go.

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair.

After recently attending an Estée Lauder blogging event, I was generously given the chance to try out this amazing product. This serum is the perfect fix for when your skin is feeling dehydrated and a lack of sleep has taken its toll.

By simply applying a small amount to your face before bed, you are guaranteed to wake up with a softer and more even skin tone. This product is so easy to use and it really does leave you feeling like you’ve had a luxury facial.

Heaven Bee Polish with Organic Raw Cane Sugar & ABEETOXIN.

This Bee Polish by Heaven is an amazing product which helps reduce fine lines and any signs of aging. I particularly this product as it is great on sensitive skin, as well and leaving your skin feeling silky smooth.

After just one use you can immediately see your skin becoming more plump and firm. This product is the perfect anti-aging treatment and takes minutes to use.

Estée Lauder Take It Away Makeup Remover Lotion.

This lotion is one of my favourite makeup removal products. By adding a small amount of the product, it is amazing how much makeup is broken down and removed from your skin.

This product particularly works well with Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation. If you wear the foundation yourself, you will know how tough it can be to remove. But by using a small amount of this product, the foundation and any other waterproof mascara is removed without a trace being left behind. The lotion also leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturised in the process.

Nivea Daily Essentials Rich Regenerating Night Cream.

When it comes to night cream I have so many different products its hard to decide which ones really work. After just a week of trying out this product, my skin was visibly more hydrated and any dark patches or blemishes seemed to disappear.

I purchased this product whilst it was on offer, paying less than £3.00 for it. With the price being as low as it is, along with the quality being of such a high standard, I definitely recommend you include this essential cream into your daily skincare routine.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my review on these skincare products and I would love to hear what products you are loving at the moment!

Estée Lauder Blogging Event – Free Gift For Readers!

 

thumbnail_IMG_1771

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an Estée Lauder blogging event at Cribbs Causeway Bristol. The event was held in Scavi & Ray, an elegant prosecco bar found in The Mall Cribbs Causeway.

On arrival we were greeted by our amazing host Karen. She welcomed us in and ensured that we were comfortable and well equipped with mini bottles of prosecco and delicious nibbles. Karen and the women at Estée Lauder also gifted each blogger with an amazing goody bag full of Estée Lauder gifts which I will be reviewing very soon!

Once we were all settled, Karen began explaining to us the history of Estée Lauder. I have used a lot of their products before, but it was really interesting to find out that Estée Lauder was in fact a woman who created the first set of samples for make-up and skincare. Estée Lauder was an inspirational woman and she has definitely made a huge impact in the beauty industry!

After we were all filled in with the knowledge we needed on the brand, Karen began to demonstrate some of the amazing products Estée Lauder has to offer.

My favourite products were those taken from the Genuine Glow range. This range is well suited to a younger audience and is guaranteed to leave your skin looking and feeling gorgeous. The two products I loved trying out the most were the Genuine Glow Eyelighting Creme for Face and Eyes as it makes the perfect highlighter, along with the Reviving Oil Lip Tint. What was amazing about the Lip Tint is how it adapts to suit your skin tone. Several bloggers tried out the product and we each saw the shade change to best suit our complexion.

Once we had watched several amazing demonstrations and tried out some amazing new products, we headed over to the Estée Lauder counter at Boots to be colour matched to a foundation of our choice. We were then able to take a sample of our matched foundation home.

I had such an amazing evening and I couldn’t wait to get home and try out all the products generously gifted to me. I will be reviewing these products in depth very soon!

Before leaving the event, the women at Estée Lauder wanted to make sure that our readers were also able to benefit from this amazing experience. If you take the voucher below to the Estée Lauder counter in Boots you will be able to receive your own free gift! The voucher is accepted by showing it on your phone, along with in print form. I hope you guys enjoy and I am sure you will love their products as much as I do!

I would like to thank Karen and all of the Estée Lauder team in Cribbs Causeway for allowing this amazing event to take place. I would also like to show my appreciation for Scavi & Ray for providing us with prosecco all night- you guys are the best!
