Autumn/Winter Budget Beauty 

I did a post like this for summer, so I thought it was only right to do something similar for winter! I’ve chosen nine products that are great budget items to see you through the winter season in style, so enjoy…

1. Revlon Nail Polish in Vixen, £6.49

This nail varnish is probably my all time favourite ‘drug store’ purchase. Firstly, I absolutely love the colour. It’s a gorgeous autumnal plum which is perfect to take you from daytime and into the evening! I also think the quality of Revlon nail polishes is great. The consistency is always really smooth and lasts a good few days (with a top and base coat) before starting to chip. If you want something to ‘autumn’ up your beauty routine this is my top recommendation!

2. The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream, £12.00

Our skin always need a little TLC during the colder months, and layering up your moisturiser is the easiest and most affordable way to do this. I love this Body Shop vitamin E cream, firstly because it suits all skin types. Secondly, vitamin E is an antioxidant for the skin (so really helps to protect and repair), which also helps to slow the ageing process! Alongside this, the shea butter and aloe vera also combines to make it a really soothing cream on the skin. Whilst this is one of the higher priced products here, the good quality ingredients included really do make this great value for  money. Plus, all Body Shop products are vegan, natural and cruelty-free which makes investing in this brand even more worthwhile!

3. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm in Pomegranate, £3.69

This lip balm was featured in my summer beauty bargains as well because it’s just so great! In my opinion it’s the best lip balm out there. It’s super nourishing, has a gorgeous pink tint to it and most importantly, is friendly on the bank balance! This is the perfect accompaniment to your make up bag especially during the winter months when heating and cold weather causes your lips to dry up.

4. St. Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub, £4.00

This was the first face scrub I ever used and it still maintains it’s superpower status in my eyes. It’s gentle on sensitive skin yet really penetrates to uplift dead skin and remove impurities and at £4.00 it’s a steal. It’s oil free and has 100% natural exfoliants which is why it’s so amazing for your skin. Use this once a week, or twice if you feel your skin needs it, to help fight the combination of heating and cold air, and, those winter nights where you cake your face in make up to hide the fading tan!

5. The Body Shop Down To Earth Eye Shadow Quad in 54588, £15 (trust me, it’s worth that little bit more!)

My first ever eye shadow set was from The Body Shop. Does anyone remember when they came in a clear box with four small cubes? This blue colour palette is a winner for me because it compliments my skin tone (and makes my blue eyes pop), and is perfect for those Autumn nights out! You can build as dramatic a look as you wish for the nighttime with the darker colours or opt for a subtle shimmer during the day with the silver. The colours are really pigmented (especially when wetting the brush), and although this is the steepest product here, I really do think this is great value for money, as it will easily carry you into next year.

6. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Starry Eyed, £4.99 

If you know me, you’ll know I love a plum lip, so I have hunted high and low for both budget and items to splurge on, and this Rimmel number has come top of my list for the budget end! I firstly absolutely love the colour (I compared it to a Burberry colour last year) because whilst it’s dark, it has a gorgeous warm undertone that makes it perfect for taking you from daytime to nighttime. As well as this, the quality is great. It’s nourishing, long lasting and doesn’t dry out my lips which is impressive even for an expensive lipstick! A big thumbs up all round for this product.

7. Rimmel Glitter Bomb Nail Polish in Mistletoe Mischief, £3.99

Everyone needs a bit of glitter in the build up to Christmas and this nail varnish is the perfect fit – it’s called Mistletoe Mischief which just says it all! I love a glitter polish because you can either use alone or over another colour; and, my personal favourite, I love to apply messily at the top of my nail to give an edge to the normal  all over glitter nail.

8. Superdrug Dead Sea Purifying Clay Mask, 99p

With the temperature dropping and heating being blasted out it’s no shock that our skin can tend to get a little clogged up with make up and sweat. This face mask is one of MY FAVOURITE cheaper alternatives to use to help unclog the pores (I’d say it’s the budget version of the Kiehls face mask which I’ve reviewed here). The clay helps to really dig deep and draw out those impurities, whilst the cool eucalyptus helps to soothe and nourish skin. My skin always feels refreshed after using this mask, and at £0.99 per packet, i think it’s a fantastic bargain buy.

9. Soap and Glory Hand Food, £6.00

This hand cream has featured in one of my reviews before, but I can’t leave it out! It’s the perfect formula for dry, neglected hands as the shea butter, macadamia oil and marshmallow extract (yum!) combine to create a lovely, nourishing formula that delves deep to soothe the skin. It also absorbs really well into the skin, so you don’t need to use much to see it working its magic!

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading and found some of these suggestions useful! I would actually recommend these products whether you’re on a budget or not, so let me know if you test any out!

Sunday Reviews 

This is the second instalment of my Sunday reviews, where I share three products I’ve beeen testing over the past week (as a have a fair few samples to get through). This week I’ve been testing a N07 bronzer, the Caudalie Beauty Elixir and the Polaar lip balm, so keep reading to see how I got on…

N07 Bronzer in Golden Sand 

I received this as part of an exciting delivery from the Boots team and it does not disappoint! I’ll start with the look: the pattern of the bronzer is so pretty and makes it look much more expensive that it actually is! I remember seeing a Clarins bronzer earlier in the year that had the same ‘wow’ factor, so I was already impressed before using it. The product itself, whilst having a subtle shimmer actually gives a great colour when built up. As I have fully succumbed to dressing for winter, by dressing entirely in black to mourn the loss of summer, I need something that’s going to give me a boost, and this does exactly that! It’s gives you a glow without being too in your face and compliments my pasty skin, which is fantastic. And, it says it suits sensitive skin which is a win win!

It’s a 5/5 for me. The gorgeous glow it gives combined with the beautiful pattern makes this a winner for me!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir 

There’s no two ways about it; I love this beauty elixir! I’ve been reading about this for some time and being hailed as ‘the secret of make up artists’ I knew I had to try it. So, I decided to invest when I was at duty free recently and I’m so glad I did! It’s not only gorgeously refreshing on my skin, it helps to tighten pores AND acts as an amazing setting spray for my makeup. I’ve used this everyday as the final stage to my make up routine and I’ve definitely noticed a reduction in the oiliness of my skin at the end of a long day. I’ve also found that my make up lasts longer generally, which is fantastic news (especially for after work drinks)! This beauty elixir is also amazing on flights. I used it every couple of hours on a long haul flight recently which did wonders to my skin. I felt so much more awake, and I didn’t come away with that horrible dry/greasy feeling. If you don’t have this, I thoroughly recommend investing!

5/5 for me. It’s an all round winner (plus it smells amazing) !

Polaar Lip Balm

If you follow my blog you’ll know that I like a lip balm or two, so it takes a lot to impress me. But I have to say, I was quite taken with the Polaar lip balm. I received this as part of my Look Fantastic beauty box last week and as it’s ‘the genuine Lapland cream’ I knew I had to try it straight away! It’s super nourishing on your lips and has a great consistency that isn’t too thick, but still gives a really intense moisturised feeling. I did find that the more I used the more I felt I had to apply as my lips dried out easier, so I would say that more is less. Another thing I would have liked (although this is completely personal preference) is for there to be a tint. As I have pale skin, my lips have a tendency to go especially pale when cold, so a gorgeous pop of colour would have been great.

It’s a 3/5 for this one. It’s a great treatment for dry lips, but I still prefer other balms.

Hope you found these mini reviews useful – thanks for reading 🙂

This Week’s Tried and Tested 

Each week I’ve decided that I’ll try a selection of some of the endless testers I seem to have accumulated on my travels firstly to clear some space in my room. And, of course for you lovely lot!

 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Intensive Moisturising Hand Cream 

This is undoubtedly one of the best hand creams I’ve tried – and I don’t throw those words around often! It is so intensely moisturising that my hands have the loveliest, dewy effect. They weren’t particularly dry before, however after being in constant 30 degree sun for a week they needed a little extra TLC. The formula absorbs so easily into the skin and doesn’t leave any kind of sticky residue; plus, as it says on the tin it really does give your hands moisture lasting 8 hours and over! I also love this for moisturising my cuticles and keeping my nails extra healthy. I can’t fault this hand cream so it’s a 5/5 from me!

 

REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist
This mist is a hard one to review as I haven’t got round to inventing my time machine, so I can’t tell you the long term benefits. However, what I will base it on is how my skin and make up felt after using. I have to say my make up stayed looking fresher for a lot longer than usual, and I didn’t get the usual oiliness that I would around 3pm when my body kicks into its sleep mode at work. Also, it’s a great spray for giving you an extra dewy look or simply to freshen up your skin throughout the day! I guess with this one you just have to trust that the experts know their stuff about protecting your skin from polluting agents and go with it. If anything it’ll give you great skin for perfecting those selfies! I would rate this product 4/5

 

Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm
I always feel like I’m cheating on my favourite products if I swap, so I felt that testing this was bitter sweet because of my love affair with the OGX coconut milk serum. But, I must admit that I actually quite liked this! It’s not the best hair product I’ve used but it certainly helped condition my hair and helped nourish my damaged ends. I used a small amount on towel dried hair all over, focusing especially on my ends which gave it an overall healthier look and softer feel when blow drying compared to not using any product. My first criticism of this product is that it felt quite heavy when styling. I don’t like the feeling of having product in my hair so I struggled to get to grips with this. I kept touching my hair as it felt quite unnatural! Also, because of this I was dubious to put much on my roots, so it didn’t help to control my frizz. I will use up the rest of this tester but I’m afraid I probably won’t invest in this again, so it’s a 3/5 for this product.

Sneak Peak into Good Ship Benefit

I have been wanting to go to this for AGES and yesterday I finally clambered aboard the Good Ship Benefit moored on the Thames. If you like make up and wine and cocktails and food then you’ll probably manage to keep yourself occupied. Wandering down the walkway I found myself thrown into a pink world filled with plush sofas, a brow bar and even pink gin – it’s what dreams are made of! 


There’s a mini Benefit shop on board, the opportunity to have your brows waxed (although if you get sea sick like me I would not recommend doing that!) as well as a restaurant and bar with seating on the deck where you watch life go by whilst admiring the London Eye. Dreamy…. 


The ship has been hosting a range of events throughout the summer from pop up events to films to yoga classes to bottomless brunches which is the perfect after school activity for any Benebabe! Sadly there weren’t any events when I popped by, but I took a few sneaky pictures so take a look and enjoy…. 

Best of British Look Fantastic Beauty Box

I finally did it. I subscribed to a beauty box! If you follow me or in fact I follow you, you’ve probably seen me comment about desperately wanting to try out a beauty box but being unsure whether to. I was ordering another product from Look Fantastic, and the subscription box popped up just as I was about to check out, so I went for it! Yes, I’m your typical easy sales customer.

I have to say, I am so glad I did because I really was like a child on Christmas when it arrived. The box itself firstly is beautiful and what’s inside… well that’s just as beautiful! Not only did it come with six miniature products to test out (eek), it also came with a September issue of Elle (which annoyingly I’d bought that day…). It also comes with a short booklet giving you a little more information about the products included as well as some other interesting beauty bits. I opted for the 12 month subscription, and honestly, a year of receiving these little boxes of heaven really is going to make me one happy customer.

So what’s inside….

  • Ren Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist – the beauty world is buzzing over the word ‘anti-pollution’ so I’m really excited to try out a product that is aimed at protecting your skin from the stress of harsh environments. I work on one of the most congested streets in London so I will really put this to the test!
  • Renu Lip and Eye Active Lift – As you may know, I love a good eye cream so throw one my way and I’m yours. I haven’t used this brand before so I’m intrigued to see how I get on with it.
  • Bloom and Blossom Rejuvenating Facial Spritz – I have two 8 hour flights coming up soon and I know this will be amazing at hydrating my skin whilst helping to keep me look slightly more normal. It’s also perfect timing for the (supposed) heat wave we’ll be having here in the UK!
  • Percy & Reed Wonder Balm – My prayers have been answered. After a week in the sun the ends of my hair are feeling very sorry for themselves, so a treatment like this is sure to work wonders!
  • Balance Me Congested Skin Serum – I recently tried a serum that my skin hasn’t taken to too well, so although I’m nervous, it will be interesting to see how I get on with this…
  • Bee Good Vanilla and Honey Lip Balm – I can’t count how many lip balms I own on about five pairs of hands, so I’m giddy to try one I don’t already own!

As I only received this today I haven’t had time to properly test and trial these products, but I will most certainly keep you up to date with them in future posts.

Would love to hear recommendations of any other great beauty boxes. But please be gentle. I think I’m addicted….

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

If you weren’t enough of a Benefit addict already then their new brow collection is sure to push you over the edge! Brimming with wonderful products from gels to pencils to brushes it really does look amazing, and I want to try it all!

I’ve never really paid too much attention to my brows (I’ve only had them waxed once…). I’m quite lucky that I have fairly tame brows where a tweeze here and there generally keeps them looking neat and tidy. I do however LOVE to fill them in because who doesn’t want fuller looking brows – it’s the secret to unlocking your youth after all!
So, when this new Benefit collection aimed solely at brows launched I jumped (literally) at the chance to give it a go. Luckily for me Elle magazine were offering readers a free Benefit Goof Proof brow pencil. The product is usually £18.50, and with the magazine at just £4, this was a bargain that I just couldn’t turn down!

 

I can safely say that the pencil itself really is one of the best brow products I’ve tried! It’s so natural yet it also really helps to fill in any more patchy areas. The product itself is really soft, and so easy to use (the clue is in the title) so if you make any mistakes it’s so easy to wipe those away and start again! And, on top of this the packaging is fab – Benefit have triumphed again!

Star rating: 5/5
As this is a 9 piece set I’m desperate to get my hands of some of the other products, so watch this space! Would love to hear if you’ve tried any of the other products!

Happy Birthday to Me & Vogue!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I’ve just received a notification from WordPress saying ‘Happy One Year Anniversary’ which has shocked and quite frankly scared me! I really cannot believe where that year has gone….

Another big birthday I’m sure a lot of you will be aware of (and that possibly out does my blog’s first birthday) is the big 100 for Vogue which is extremely exciting. London is awash with past Vogue covers, with everyone from retailers to restaurants to arcades celebrating this momentous occasion with gorgeous displays. Amongst some of the celebrations there was the Vogue 100 exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery which was fantastic but has sadly closed now! And over this weekend, the Vogue Festival is taking place; which, I was lucky enough to attend yesterday!

When you imagine a tent in the middle of a park, scarring memories of a damp-ridden, cold Glastonbury tent come streaming back; but oh no, not at Vogue! Nestled within Kensington Gardens is the most beautifully white structured tent that is as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. Upon entering, you’re welcomed by a hallway of past Vogue covers where it was selfies galore! The hall itself was a gorgeously bright, open plan room, where the clear roof gave a lovely natural quality to the space. Within it, there was a space where style and beauty talks took place; an extremely popular pop-up shop where exclusive items were being sold alongside a counter for book signings and t.shirt personalisations. I knew I was in a Vogue wonderland when the portaloos were constructed of a beautiful wood laden with Elemis products to cleanse and moisturise your hands before stepping out back into the madness!

Walking through, I then entered my heaven – the beauty hall. If you read my blog regularly you’ll have seen when I visited the Glamour Beauty Awards, and it was reminiscent of that. The stands you were able to pamper and preen yourself to perfection at were: Jo Malone, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford alongside a Kerastase braid bar and a nails bar which sadly my shellac meant I couldn’t visit! I took full advantage of the offering visiting all (bar the nails bar) and had a great time! I even got to have a one to one with Bobbi Brown make up artist Hannah Martin which was so exciting where she shared some great tips and tricks of the trade!

I then signed up to a beauty masterclass of ‘How To Launch Your Beauty Idea’ with leading industry experts which was so much more interesting and useful than I had imagined! I scribbled note after note whilst listing to Annalise Fard, Director of Home & Beauty at Harrods. Marcia Kilgore, founder of Bliss & Soap & Glory amongst other things! Kathy Phillips, founder of This Works. Anna-Marie Solowij, founder of Beauty Mart and Vogue Beauty Director, Nicola Moulton. There were other talks throughout the day which involved the likes of Kim Kardashian (amazing!), Charlotte Tilbury, Lisa Eldridge, Alexa Chung and many more!

It really was a great day where not only did I get to pamper myself, but I really did learn a lot that I hope will stand my in good stead for where I hope to be in the beauty industry! If any of you lovely lot were there I’d love to know what you thought!

Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Mask Review 

 

 

As part of the goody bag I received from the Future Of Beauty event at Harvey Nichols I received this Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Mask which I have been lusting after for a while now!

It’s pretty straightforward to use… You simply peel the individual mask off its protective covering and apply under your eye. There’s a lot of product actually in the packaging so it’s important to make sure you get as much of that out as possible! You then leave on for around 20 minutes, peel off and then rub any remaining residue into your skin. Easy!

Pros:

– It’s so quick and easy to use. You could use this in the morning and then apply your make up over the top to give your eye area even more of a refreshing boost!

– It really does help improve the appearance and feel of the eye area. My skin felt tighter and more hydrated as well as being significantly brighter, where the appearance was that of looking refreshed and glowing

– It essentially acts as a second skin, where the hit of intense ingredients on the mask are there to soothe and repair the under eye area

– The hyaluronic acid helps to plump the area making eyes look younger and more hydrated

– It instantly reduces puffiness because of the arnica extract


Cons
:

– It’s expensive. For £39 you receive 8 sets of under eye masks which does seem a lot; however that works out at nearly £5 per mask if you use one per week. So in that sense for the initial effect it had I would definitely pay that per week. Also I imagine after continued use the eye area would begin to look generally brighten overall.

As you can see my pros list is a lot longer than the cons, and even my point about them being expensive, I’ve managed to turn that into a positive. In short I think these are amazing! If you’re looking to invest in your eye care routine then I would completely recommend these as a starting point. There’s no strict regime to follow and they really are so so simple to use – what’s not to love!

Rodial have some amazing products so I an definitely looking to test some more out! Have you tried any of their other products? Would love to know!

Liebster Award & Beauty Blogger Tag

Happy Friday everyone!

 

I’ve been nominated for a couple of awards recently, and because of being so busy for various reasons I just haven’t got around to answering the questions set by the lovely bloggers who nominated me. These nominations are such a great way to firstly discover new bloggers, but also to connect with the great people that shape the blogging community. Rather than nominate 20 people at the end of this, I’ve decided to combine the two and choose ten bloggers to answer my questions. So I hope you enjoy!

 

Liebster Award

A massive thank you to RolasJournal for nominating me for this award!

The questions and my answers:

1.Why did you start blogging?

Because I’m passionate about beauty, whether that be products/tips and tricks. And I wanted a creative outlet to connect with other people. I also love the idea of owning my own space to talk all things beauty – it’s a great excuse to do shopping too!

2.How long have you been blogging for?

I started my blog about a year ago, although I’ve been properly maintaining it for around 3 months

3.Why did you choose this name for your blog?

I was original and stuck with my name. Nothing stood out so much that I wanted to use it, and I like my name so thought why not! Hopefully not many others will have it…

4.What are the top three things you want to do in 2016?

Progress in my career, attend more beauty-specific events, explore more of London

5.Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully developing my own skincare range

6.Are you a sweet/sour person?

Definitely sweet!

7.If you won the lottery what would be the first thing you’d do?

I’m currently trying to find a flat to live in, in London. So I would treat myself and my friends to a gorgeous flat with exposed brick (always wanted that)

8.Are you a morning person?

100% my friends used to make fun of me for it, but now it’s great. I can get so much done in a day! Although come 8pm and I’m ready for bed!

9.Describe yourself in one word.

Dedicated

10.Tell us something about yourself, absolutely anything….

I would rather walk 100 flights of stairs than take a lift

 

 

 

Beauty Blogger Tag

Thanks to H&L Aurora for tagging me in this award!

The questions and my answers:

 

1.What is your beauty routine?

My routine is fairly simple in the morning – I cleanse and moisturise. Having problem skin has meant I really limit what I use. Every few days I’ll exfoliate and I use a face mask once a week. I’ve started using an eye cream everyday.

2.How often do you exercise?

Not enough! I’ve just started getting back into exercise where my plan is do something 2-3 times a week. I’ll be doing a mixture of spin, yoga and dance classes.

3.Do you organise your makeup and nail varnish?

As much as I can, although I always like to have everything out where I can see it. I’d say it’s organised chaos!

4.Can you go without wearing makeup?

Yes and the older I get the more I do it. It’s lovely and freeing and really is amazing for your skin!

5.How long does it take you to put on your makeup?

Around 10 minutes in the morning before work – I love sleep too much to sacrifice it! On a night out though I can spend up to half an hour perfecting my look.

6.How often do you wash your make up brushes?

Once a month which I know is definitely not enough. I need to get into a better habit but it just always slips my mind! I clean my eyeliner and concealer brush every morning with a baby wipe however, so that must be something….

7.What is your favourite store to buy clothes at?

Zara

8.How do you keep soft skin?

Moisturising lots goes without saying. But drinking lots of water is my key to soft skin!

9.What motivates you?

Being successful.

10.What is your ‘smell good’ routine?

My favourite perfume to use is Coco Madmoseille by Chanel. Chanel never smells bad!

The Future of Beauty Event

 

  
On Wednesday evening after work I made my way to Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge for a night filled with nibbles, bubbles and beauty – aka all of my dreams rolled into one! They were hosting ‘The Future of Beauty’ in association with Marie Claire, where there was the opportunity to attend a variety of talks as well as testing out various products and speaking to professionals at the make up counters. There was also an AMAZING goody bag, but I’ll talk about that later!

I sadly had to work during the day, otherwise I would have happily spent the whole day there. However I managed to see a demonstration of the new Nails Inc spray on nail polish, Giorgio Armarni foundation master class and a talk by make up and skin care industry experts.

 

The Nails Inc spray on nail varnish looked amazing! You basically spray on your fingers, wash under the tap and they’re ready! To then really tidy up the technician went around with a nail corrector pen. The effect was great and they looked really professionally done; apparently they only last a couple of days, but with how indecisive I am I would be ready to change my colour after two or three days anyway! I’ll definitely be buying this product so watch this space for a review!

 

 The class after that was by Vanessa D’Ambrossio Make Up Artist for Emporio Armani. She showed us how to create two looks; a natural and a more done up look using both new and older products from their collection. The foundations all looked great, and the reason I actually went was because I’m interested in investing in one. After payday I’m going to head down to a counter for some advice on the the best one for my skin! It was also great to get some of her top tips for make up application as well as skin care (as she is one of the top make up artists for the brand!).

 

The final talk was by Mary Greenwell, Fluer Deforce and two skin doctors. They offered some great personal and industry advice, which for a beauty fanatic and some one who simply wants to look after their skin, it was both interesting and extremely useful. It seems like natural skin care is the way forward, as well as all these amazing masques and peels that seem to be dominating the beauty sphere!

 

As part of the event I also received this fantastic beauty bag which I was giddy to open and look inside! I won’t go into every product as I’ll be doing reviews on these, but I was definitely most excited by the Rodial Dragons Blood under eye mask as I’ve been wanting to test this range for a while now. I cannot wait to use this so keep posted for my review!!

Were you there? Would love to hear how the other talks were!

Thanks for reading 🙂
