Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

My poor skin is having a woeful time at the moment. Sitting in an air conditioned heated office in the middle of winter is ruining my skin :-( it’s so dry and itchy, I can’t seem to keep the moisture in it. I’m bringing out my skincare big guns to try and tackle the problem.

Invisibobble Review

Invisibobble

Ha ha this is a bit of a funny one, I never thought I’d be reviewing a bobbin (bobble, hair tie – whatever you call it!) on the blog. But this is one of those products you never knew you wanted until you got one. I got this in my last British Beauty Blogger box here and at first I didn’t really know what it was!

The Face Shop – Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil Review

The Face shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Light Oil

Before Christmas a friend asked me to be Santa for her two daughters who had asked for beauty products for Christmas. Beauty shopping is my friends idea of a worst nightmare but for me would actually be my dream job, a personal beauty shopper!

Revlon Colorstay Concealer

Revlon Colorstay Concealer

Well it’s probably no secret that I’m a big fan of the Revlon Colorstay foundation. It’s the only foundation I’ve tried so far that has the exact colour, consistency and coverage I’m looking for. It’s quite high coverage but doesn’t feel to heavy on my skin it also gets me through a full day at the office which is what I look for in a foundation. So when I needed a new heavy duty concealer I knew I’d have to give the Colorstay version a whirl.

The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Beautifying Oil

I think I must be mistaken as I do believe this is my first review of a Body Shop product on my blog! I can’t really believe it as I do love their products (body butters in particular) but somehow they haven’t landed here until now. I received The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Beautifying Oil in the last British Beauty Blogger Dream Box 2 here. Here’s how I got on with it…
