First Aid Beauty Fab Faves To Go, Dry Skin? Review

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

I suffer with a vast amount of skincare woes. I have the most trouble in finding a product that works for me and that’s a product that combats dry flaky skin

They say for healthier skin drinking lots of  water is a must, but that’s the problem i do drink quiet a good amount of water and still have trouble with dry skin. And a even more major problem when applying foundation it really doesn’t look right, very cakey, flaky dry looking i love makeup but with my skin being so awful i really hate applying foundation sometimes

Ive tried brands that include

Clinique, Clarins, Sarah Champan, Ole Henriksen

They are very well known brands and quiet good ones in fact but dont really work for me and my troubled skin. I feel like im at the end of trying sometimes, until i came across another brand called ”First Aid Beauty”

I saw a great Youtube friend of mine using it and i was super excited as i heard great reviews also

”Perfect for those exposed to harsh weather or living with severely dry skin, the First Aid Beauty delivers an unrivalled hydrating experience, helping to alleviate and visibly improve dry and scaly skin. Thick, rich and non-greasy, the emollient formula soothes agitated skin by penetrating deep down and immediately relieving distressed skin. Fortified with shea butter, colloidal oatmeal and soothing eucalyptus oil, the cream with added antioxidant booster and ceramides improves the natural barrier function of skin whilst helping to relieve irritation and itching caused by eczema. Defends from free radical damage and is suitable to use all over the body and face”

I bought my set from BeautyBay you can get yours here

at £17.60 i really could not miss this at such a great price as its original RRP is £22.00

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

You get 3 items

Face Cleanser 56.7g

”Gently cleanses the skin, removes surface oils, make up, dirt and grime. Its whipped texture transforms into a rich cream when blended with water. It is infused with a powerful botanical antioxidant blend that works hard to scavenge free radicals. Allantoin and Aloe Vera Leaf Extract work to heal and soothe, whilst the FAB Antioxidant booster combats free radicals. Glycerin moisturises and gives barrier protection”

Exfoliating 28 Pads

”A gentle renewal treatment, these pads brighten, tone and exfoliate the skin with just the right amount of lactic and glycolic acids to make them safe and effective for daily use. Cucumber and Indian gooseberry tone the skin, while lemon peel and liquorice root leave the skin bright and glowing”

Ultra Repair Cream 56.7g

”Delivers exceptional hydration and protection with no greasy petroleum. With the help of Colloidal Oatmeal, Shea Butter, and Eucalyptus Oil Ultra Repair Cream provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin suffering from psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis. Ultra Repair Cream can be used all over the body and on the face. This cream hydrates, calms and smoothes skin, whilst improving the skins natural barrier function. It helps to relieve minor skin irritation and itching due to eczema and other conditions”

Ived used this system for about a week so far and im loving the results. I haven’t broken out in any crazy sized spots just a few here and there but thats to be expected as its drawing all the muck that’s left underneath my skin to the surface, breaking out on some skincare isn’t deemed bad its a good sign

The packaging is quiet cute and would make a lovely gift for anyone who is in need of some Skin TLC

My Makeup looks much better since ive been using this and its the perfect skin care that ive ever used so for and for the price of £17.00 you cant really go wrong super happy with results i totally recommended anyone with dry, parched and flaky skin

Do you suffer from dry skin or know any good brands comment below

Benefit Puff Off! Instant Eye Gel Review

Puff Off!!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Well i dont know about you but i have some serious puffies!

 Puffy eyes and dark circle are something that i really dont like! Im Super pale and because of this it accentuates the black bags and puffiness to the extreme

When i heard that Benefit has another new Product ”Puff Off!” it got me thinking

I have used Benefit ”Its Potent”  On & Off (Another Eye Cream for your Puffies and dark circles) Its a good product but i wouldn’t say great but then again im always switching my skin care i cant seem to make my mind up and claiming to be instant im not really that sure about Its Potent being that

So January came and so did a few Benefit products. I was super intrigued by Benefit ”Puff Off!” not just because of its name but because the application head was something i have never seen before! a Iron to be quiet frank!? and it sure did pull me in to find out more

Benefit is known for its Cute, Quirky, Gimmicky 50’s Style Packaging and whilst most people dont really like this i absolutely quiet love it in a strange way somehow im always a sucker for packaging i really cant help myself!

Benefit is also a expensive Makeup brand but when they get it right they really get it right and then that’s when i dont mind paying the extra £’s

(So what is Benefit ”Puff off!” and what does it claim to do?)

”Iron on…puff off! Undereye puffiness and creases look “satiny smooth” with our innovative under eye gel. The custom “ironing” tip instantly helps smooth the look of undereye puffiness & fine lines. Iron away for a smoother day!”

I thoroughly enjoyed using Benefit ”Puff Off!” it worked instant on my tired looking puffy eyes it gave them some TLC along with the benefit of its cooling Custom iron tip head which is freezing cold, So some pink product and a ice cold application = de-Puff Eyes and no more Puffies

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

It absorbed quiet quickly and easy into my skin with the cooling effect my eyes sure felt great, i used it under my makeup as it claims it can be used over. (not sure how that will work)

Its very gentle and did not irritate my eyes, I have the most sensitive skin i either break out in spots but it was quiet pleasant to use

Gimmicky looking yes but dont be fooled this was an enjoyable Benefit product 

What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Get yours here  RRP £22.50

Cohorted 1st Cult Beauty Box

Cohorted February Beauty Box

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

 

So when i heard there was a brand new shiny Beauty Box set to be released. I made sure that it was first on my list of priorities 

For those who are not so familiar with Cohorted They are a Beauty Cosmetic Company that sells Makeup at really goods prices and when i mean really good seriously its really a fair price

They have on sale, a small selection of Cosmetics and other beauty items each week, Some with limited quantities of each product and sold at discounted prices. The more people that signs up to purchase the product that’s on sale each week then the price drops further down, giving you beauty at such affordable great price. Its truly a unique buying experience

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

But whats even more fun is that… I dont know about you, but beauty boxes are an obsession for me…

Ive accumulate so much makeup without having to spend alot its crazy and amazing at the same time. Its to the stage where it looks like i have my own makeup shop 😀

So Cohorted released their first ever Beauty Box on the 9/2/2015 at 6pm I made sure i was definitely getting one of these boxes as it was £19.99 + £2.50 P&P but the Contents worth was £65+  and that was an incredible offer i surely wasn’t going to miss

Cohorted is a one off pruchase Beauty Box that gets released each month but without having a direct debit/ rolling subscription. So when the box is released you will purchase it there and then and so forth

I guess it has its up and downs but i think its nice not have to be committed to something, even though many other Beauty Box companies say that unsubscribing isnt a issue ive always had trouble and its not a nice at all. So i guess this way of purchasing is perfect buying way for me

There was 100 boxes available and believe me on the day i did have some trouble with the site but that’s what happens when a new box arrives on the scene us women are like vultures! the site crashed a few times and was slow but with some patience and 2 pages open i was not going to be defeated! 😛

5 days later my order arrived on Valentines Day by hermes Courier and Ahhhh! Honestly this was the best box ive ever opened the presentation was second to none, it arrived in a sophisticated magnetic flip shut box wrapped with a silky black bow

The box was worth £65+ with 5 products inside,  3 of which that was full size and not to mention a High End Brand Dolce & Gabbana!!!

Thats the first time ive seen a high end product in any box that was pretty impressive im amazed and i really like to see this

Out of the 100 boxes that Chorted had.  5 lucky people had their boxes filled with another product a HourGlasss palette

unfortunatly i wasn’t one of the lucky ones but i sure did  feel lucky with its contents

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

* Dolce & Gabbana Clarifying Lotion  Full Size 150ml £20.00

* Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara  Travel Size 3ml Worth around £8.00

* Benefit Bella Bamba Ultra Plush Lipgloss  Full Size 15ml £14.50

* Korres Quercetin & Oak Eye Primer  Full Size 4ml £10.00

* Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser Travel Size 50ml Worth around £15.00

March Box did go on sale straight after Feb Edition sold out. I believe March had 300 Boxes of which are too sold out but more could come, im not 100% sure but will update you

it just goes to show you how successful Cohorted really are is a must have Beauty Box

What do you guys think? did you enjoy Cohorted New Beauty Edition if so let me know

Thankyou for reading

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Ive been eying up some perfume’s which ive wanted for the longest time

Just so happens to be the Perfumes that are high on the market and in the blog world, YSL BLACK OPIUM & TOM FORD VELVET ORCHID

Now whilst i know the two names above are very popular atm

Ive wanted these little gems last year not because they are the most blogged about but because i had the sample of these and just loved the smell so much

So ive been saving really hard and finally bought them Yay 😛

I have 3 perfumes to share with you today and if you love sophisticated, Semi Mature, Sweet and Sexy Feminine perfumes then these are for you!

The Bottles are just to die for, again im a sucker for packaging and these are so on point!

TOM FORD VELVET ORCHID EDP 30ML

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

£52.00 Only available at the size in Selfridges

Release date From 2014

The fragrance opens itself with bergamot, mandarin, Succan absolute (purified rum extract) and honey. At the core of this creation (made of “corporeal floral notes.”) is Tom Ford’s distinctive, “timeless” signature – an imaginary accord of black orchid blended with notes of velvet orchid, which gives the perfume its name, with intense Turkish rose oil and jasmine and a new accord of purple orchid that grows in the wilds of southern Brazilian coast. There are also additional floral notes of orange blossom, rose absolute, narcissus, hyacinth and heliotrope. The base is warm due to the rich flavors of Peru balsam, myrrh, labdanum, sandalwood, suede and vanilla 

This Perfume has amazing staying power it lasts all day on me, its my far the best perfume ive ever owned! so thrilled to have finally got my hands on it! The smells is addictive. The Bottle itself is a beauty just love it!

Nina Ricci Limited Edition La Tentation de Nina EDT 50ml

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

£31.45 Available at allbeauty

Release date From Jan 2014 LE

La Tentation de Nina is a fresh floral – fruity and gourmand fragrance. It smells like Nina macarons topped with raspberry jam, with lemon drops and rose flavor. The composition begins with citrusy notes of bergamot and goes into the heart of raspberry, almond, lemon and Bulgarian rose absolute, which are connected together in the macaroon accord, softened by notes of Bourbon vanilla ,white musk and sandalwood at its base

I just Love the packaging its smells so devine again last all day perfect for evening and day time uses! plus it looks so beautiful on my vanity!

YSL BLACK OPIUM 50ML £52.99

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

YSL Black Opium Available at Fragrance Direct

Release date From : September 2014

Notes of coffee, present in large quantities, dominate the scent. Additional accords are pink pepper, orange blossom, jasmine, vanilla, patchouli and cedar

This perfume is so devine it smels super amazing, didnt last as long as the Tom ford did but still a luscious smelling perfume that every women  needs seductive scent and very feminine

 

Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection Flat Contour Brush

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Since ive heard that Sam & Nic who Last month revealed they have brand new brushes coming out, i was ecstatic, over the moon! But its taken me so long to get my hands on them!

Here in the UK they are available to buy through Boots

Which is our major drugstore chain for anything beauty, health and food related

so a month later yay finally got my hands on the one and only which ive been lusting for ages!

The Bold metal 301 Flat Contour Brush

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Designed for creating ”Shadows” ”Contouring” ”Bronzing” and ”Highlighting”

To give you that polished off chizzled look

Have to say this brush is amazing! Its more luxurious and advanced than the other set of  Real Technique makeup brushes that both Sam & Nic have created in the past

£22 For this contour is 60% more than the regular old standard brushes by Real techniques

The design is cute! not so keen on the other Colours of the Makeup brushes but what i do love is the brush head it’s perfect and i love that they have used the finest of synthetics so it really feels super real to touch and buffs the Makeup onto your skin as if it was always there, never any harsh lines just perfect Colour where needed looks natural and amazing!

Benefit Mini Haul #poreoclock

I was in the need for some new Benefit Porefessional Primer

ive never really bought the full size Tube ive always used the small 7ml Travel size one. Soo I took to the plunge and bought the big daddy £24.00

My Local Benefit counter is inside a House of Fraser  Store

But i came away with more than i thought so i would just like to share with you today this Cute Little Benefit gift bag filled with some extras thrown in.

The Girl at the Counter was so sweet and very helpful. The best part was that it she was genuine and not so salesman on me

As im quiet put off by this, i once had a all day audition with benefit for a job role and it was not for me! did not like the fake Salesman C’mon strong kind of person i had to be. But enough of that lets just drool over how freaking cute this goodie bag is!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The Benefit Lady also popped a  porefessional Poreoclock Clock in my bag also 😀

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

So for a £24.00 Shop i came out with some pretty cute samples and more samples than i thought

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Would have to say Benefit is normally kinda stingy when it comes to asking for some samples but today i was quiet delighted this is the most samples ive had from them in the last 3 years

Benefit New Roller Lash Mascara First Impression Review ”Hook n Roll” #ROLLERLASH

Benefit’s soon to be cult product, ”Roller Lash Mascara” Has been announced!!! 😀 

Due out 27th February 2015

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This Brand spanking new super curling & lifting World Exclusive Mascara is available as a sample in Elle UK March Issue 2015 Magazine for only £4.00 Released on In stores and Online Since January 29th 2015
4 years in The making this Mascara is a must! I was very excited to give this a try. It curled my lashes which i have great trouble. When a mascara claims to do something i really hold them to it, as alot of mascara are a huge let down but im super impressed with Benefits New Edition
and whilst tested on over 31 women for 4 weeks the results were
97% of women said it visibly lifts lashes**
87% said it gives long-lasting curl**
94% said eyes look more wide open**
I found that this Mascara didn’t clump and was a dream to apply lasting a whole 8-9 Hours plus the curl
it claims the curl will last for a whooping 12 hours but i beg to differ i guess it depends on the Humidity, Oils under your eyes and your Job i reckon if you stay in one place all day doing absolutely nothing then yes i guess your mascara would last the 12 hours as claimed. 😀
But with 8-9 hours wear this is more than enough for me personally
 according to Benefit New Mascara you dont need a curler for you lashes anymore i totally agree. Throw them curlers away this Mascara is your new best friend
I love the Mascara Head its different and whilst its called the ”HOOK N ROLL”

The custom designed hooks are to help catch, lift and curl the lashes
This is the new revolutionary Mascara and its definitely a winner in my eyes
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES
I just Love The packaging and Benefit is surely known for their quirky, Pin up  and jazzy designs
Such a cute idea for using hair curlers as the Bottle Design is different fun, fresh and new Love it!
Mine is a sample From Elle but will be snatching it up asap when released late Feb/Early March 2015
