Human+Kind Shower Mousse

I have been using the Human + Kind Shower Mousse for a few weeks now and I am in love with them. They smell amazing, they are full of ingredients that are kind to your skin and let's be honest they are just fun to use.

REVIEW | The Belle Brush

The lovely Nancy who is the owner of Belle Hair and co-creator of The Belle Brush contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I wanted to try out the brush. At the time I kind of wasn't sure if I needed another hairbrush but my instincts were telling me to try it.

I will be constantly updating this list as I find more so please drop a comment below if you know of one.

BEAUTY ON A BUDGET | My Favourite Affordable Makeup Brands

I love treating myself to an expensive, luxury makeup product but something I love a little more than that is shopping from my favourite budget makeup brands. Today's blog post focuses on just a few of my favourite affordable brands.

CND Vinylux Weekly Polish

This blog post is a long time promised but I wanted to make sure it was perfect before I hit that publish button. CND (Creative Nail Design) is a brand I am very passionate about due to my background as a beauty therapist and nail technician. CND are the company behind the famous CND Shellac and of course CND Vinylux Weekly Polish which we will be focusing on today.

Tried & Tested | Budget Foundations

Finding the right type and the right shade of foundation is crucial to your makeup look. We all need different things from our foundation and we all have different tastes. For example, I have an oily skin type which is sometimes dehydrated and I like a medium to full or full coverage foundation. Buying expensive products doesn't always mean they are the best. I am and have always been a firm believer that budget brands can be just as good if not better in some cases.

NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows

I have been a HUGE fan of NOTE Cosmetics since it launched here in Ireland almost a year ago. I have tried so much from the budget brand and have yet to find something that I don't adore. Under the microscope today is the NOTE Cosmetics Luminous Silk Quattro Eyeshadows.

The A/W Wardrobe Series | Cosy Knitted Jumpers

As far as I am concerned Summer has been and gone and I am so ready for chunky knitwear, scarves and boots. A new season is like a fresh start so to reflect that I am starting a new series on my blog entitled The Autumn Winter Wardrobe Series. Part one of that series is focused around cosy knitted jumpers but I'm sure you have already guessed that.

ZOEVA Cocoa Blend Palette | First Impressions & Swatches

So earlier today I got a press release to let me know that ZOEVA was going to be launching instore and online to Arnotts this September. It reminded me that I have the ZOEVA Cocoa Blend eyeshadow palette in my makeup drawers for almost a year now and haven't yet used it. Like that is a sin!!

Ester's Aromas Body Care Products

I am the biggest candle addict going. I have bought so many brands both affordable and expensive through the years but none compare or hold a candle to (pardon the pun) to Ester's Aromas candles.

LUSH Cosmetic Warrior Fresh Face Mask

So when I hear or think of LUSH I think of bath bombs, shower jellys and that kinda thing. I never really associated it with actual skincare products to treat your skin. I went into the LUSH store on Grafton street recently to pick up some bath bombs for my little man and ended up leaving with a face mask.

SS17 Fashion Trend | Gingham

Floral print and embroidery is everywhere this Spring Summer but it isn't for everyone. With gingham, there is a very fine line between looking like a picnic blanket and rocking the trend. I have put together a post of some of my favourite pieces from some of my favourite websites.

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Cleansing Hair Scrub

When it comes to hair care I have lived a pretty sheltered life. I have spent a lot of money on skincare, makeup and body products but my hair always got neglected until recent months. For the past while I have been testing out The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Cleansing Hair Scrub and it really surprised me.

REVIEW | The Wet Brush - Is it the best hairbrush ever?

With so many de-tangling hairbrushes on the market it can often be difficult to decide which one to pick. I have ridiculously long natural hair that despite being kinda thin it always get really knotty. There is massive hype online about The Wet Brush so does it live up to the hype?

REVIEW | Kinvara Absolute Cleansing Oil

For the past few weeks and months even I have been changing my cleanser constantly. I just couldn't settle on one or find one that I really loved. Some days I wear quite a natural makeup and some days I wear a much heavier look so I needed something heavy duty to get rid of every single bit.

Be #PicturePOREfect With Benefit Cosmetics

When it comes to creative press drops the team behind Benefit Cosmetics always manage to out do themselves every single time. Their latest package included four products from the porefessional line in a super cute pretend camera case. It even had a little strap to carry it around, like I can't cope with how adorable it is.

Benefit Cosmetics Galifornia Blusher

I actually don't know where to start re discussing this blusher because it makes me so excited. Everytime I see or use it, it gives me the being a child on Christmas Eve kinda feels. It also makes me want to burst out into song!! "GALifornia girls we're undeniable.." 

Wednesday, 19 April 2017

The Skin Nerd Cleanse Off Mitt

I'm not gonna lie I was totally skeptical of the cleanse off mitt and how it would actually work. Like I have cleansers that struggle with removing my eye makeup in particular so HOW was this cloth going to do it with just water? I had read so many rave reviews about it online and my own sister loves it so I am gonna fill ye all in on how I got on. 

Spoiler alert: I LOVE IT!!

Cocoa Brown Ice Goddess Shimmering Dry Face & Body Oil

When the Cocoa Brown Golden Goddess Shimmering Dry Body Oil landed it was a HUGE hit! It is so good even Khloe Kardashian is a fan! Following the original Golden Goddess in keeping with trends last year Cocoa Brown launched their sister product Rose Gold Goddess. It was equally as gorgeous as the original and it gave that deep shimmering glow.

The Kiehl's Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner has been available since the late 60's... like the late sixties? For something to stick around that long it must be good, right?
