Instant Repurchases!

Everyone has those few products that they are completely loyal to, their Holy Grail items that they are lost without. And if one of them finishes, it’s a nervous rush to Boots to get a new one! Here are my staples – if one of these runs out, then there’s no question I’ll be re-buying it immediately!

No prizes for guessing what the first of my ‘Instant Repurchases’ is: yep, it’s Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve barely used anything else since I bought my first bottle, and I’ve repurchased it six or seven times. Something about it just really suits my hair! I won’t bore you by rehashing my original review, so I’ll just leave a link to it (hint: it’s glowing). Continue reading

Review: Lush Full of Grace Facial Serum*

I’d never thought to add a serum to my skincare routine, let alone a solid serum, until I received this little wonder product in my #Oxmeet goody bag. I’ve been trialling the Lush Full of Grace Serum Bar for the last couple of weeks, and I really like it!  Continue reading

The Battle Of: The Beauty Boxes!

P1060028

So, I’ve never had a beauty subscription box before, although I’m sure I must be the only blogger not to get the thunk of goodies through the door every month! Luckily for me, the gorgeous people at Birchbox and Glossybox popped their March boxes into the #Oxmeet goody bags, and I got my first taste of the high-end sample world! I’ve decided to battle them out to see which one made its way into my heart (and maybe my budget)… A warning, this is a very long post! Continue reading

#OxMeet: An Oxford Beauty Blogger Meet-up! (and Haul!)

It’s taken me rather a while to get this post up, but last Sunday I was lucky enough to attend #OxMeet, a meet-up for Oxford-based bloggers. Organised by the amazing Adrienne of Late Night Nonsense, this was such a great opportunity to meet other lovely bloggers in the area, and we all had a fantastic day! I was a little lax on the photo-taking, but I’ll link you to all the other girls so you can see what went on!

February Empties!

I can’t believe how quickly the end of February has snuck up on me! I know it’s the shortest month, but still… Even so, I still managed to get through quite a few products this month, so read on to see what I’ve been using!

P1050252

I got this sample of Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Dark Circle Minimizer when I had my mini-facial at Origins, and I managed to make this tiny sachet last for three weeks. This is an amazing eye cream that really had a lightening effect on my perpetual dark circles, and made me feel confident to wear less concealer! I wholeheartedly recommend it, but since it’s £32 for 15ml, it’s a tad expensive for my budget.  Continue reading

Review: Origins Never A Dull Moment Brightening Face Cleanser

P1050185

 

 

I recently wandered into Debenhams and found myself accidentally having a mini facial at Origins… I had no intention of going for one, but I’m so glad I did. I’ve been wanting to investigate Origins a bit further since I fell in love with the Drink Up Intensive Mask, and I’ve not been disappointed! Continue reading
