First Impressions – Pureology Strength Cure Shampoo and Conditioner

It’s not very often that I post about sample or deluxe sample sizes very often, I’m normally in the camp where I believe you need a full size of something to really comment on how it works – however there were a few people who commented that they were interested to see how these panned […]

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Gel Wash: First Impressions

It was only a week or so ago that I was thinking that I was surprised the Micellar trend hadn’t made it’s way into the realm of gel cleansers. So stepping into Boots on New Years Eve and seeing a whole stand of exactly that from Garnier had me feeling like they’d read my mind. […]

Makeup Geek Manny MUA Shadow Palette – First Impressions

I think Manny MUA, asking me if I wanted one of his palettes was maybe one of my most surreal moments of my blogging life so far. Of course I bit his hand off, whilst I’d in all honesty not really watched all that many of his videos at this point (now, I’ve probably watched […]

L’Oreal Extraordianary Clay Dry Shampoo

A few weeks ago you might have seen my reviews on the shampoo, conditioner and pre-shampoo treatment from the new L’Oreal Extraordinary clay line (review here). It’s safe to say I was thoroughly impressed with what I’d tried and I was itching to get my hands on the dry shampoo which was proving elusive at […]

Maybelline The Nudes Blushed Palette First Impressions / Review

I would never have picked up the original ‘The Nudes’ from Maybelline (review here if you missed it!) had I have not received it in a bundle of Maybelline goodies back in October, but I’ve surprised myself just how much I’ve been going to reach for it, so I decided I wanted to pick up […]

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Review

When I went to London a month ago, I decided to go and get myself colour matched at Make Up Forever for a new foundation. I’ve been wanting to try this coveted product for years, but it’s never been easy to get your hands on it in the UK as the range had only been […]

The Melt Crowd – August 2015 Unboxing

I’ve been waiting for this to arrive since the start of July, and did a little hop and a skip when it landed on my doorstep at the end of last week. You’ll know if you saw my ‘Jo Malone on a Budget’ post that I might have a small obsession with candles.

Picked up as a ‘just using up the credits’ item in June’s Love Me Beauty Box, I didn’t have high expectations of this Green People Fruit Scrub Exofoliator I just chose on a whim, having never really seen or heard anything from the brand before.

The Body Shop Instablur Primer Review/First Impressions

I’ve had The Body Shop Instablur Primer for 2 weeks now, but changing foundations half way through I decided it was best to hold off doing a first impressions until I had tried out with both to see if the performance was any different. This is a much talked about primer, I’ve seen mostly rave reviews, […]

Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm First Impressions

 After my first and only experience with a cleansing balm wasn’t that great (review of that here), I was dubious as to whether or not this highly favoured form of cleanser by beauty bloggers just wasn’t for me. If however, a brand was to do well on that front I knew it would be elemis! […]
