Lacura Sheet Mask

Hi beauties
Seems strange to have a title sheet mask, when it’s not a sheet i am not putting it on my bed lol
It’s another Lacura product and this time it is a face mask.
20180523_173943.jpg
Yes Lacura have added yet another product to their range and at an affordable price.
It is a twin pack so if like me you have a daughter that loves face masks well your in luck or not so lucky lol. £1.99 for the 2 so basically £1 each.
There are 2 different types. 1 is aloe vera and this one chamomile extract.
I chose the chamomile as I like the scent and it states for dry & sensitive skin.
Ok so firstly when I opened this packet I noticed not a lot of liquid in the actual packet but plenty on the sheet, finally someone got this right as that really does annoy me.
2nd was it has a ble plastic backing which is fab again I am sick of trying to peel of the backs of these sheet masks only to pull and tear it. With this one it was easy it just slid off. The mask its self is thick so it doesn’t pull and tear when playing around placing it on your face.
20180529_121234.jpg
This mask has Chamomile extract as I mentioned before, hyaluronic acid and moisturising serum. Claims to intensively moisturise and refresh the skin.
Place on your face for 15 minutes lay back and relax.
The scent is subtle and smells of chamomile, it soaks into my skin so easy and left it feeling soft and yes refreshed.
One little problem I had the next day was a really red large spot on the side of my nose. now I rarely get spots and when I do it is either a product or my period. This would have been the product. But having said that this is the only thing that I had negative about it.
It has got me thinking about the moisturising serum in this, I do wonder if it is a serum Lacura have brought out before, if it is they need to bring it out again. I do love the curee and cavier range so would be good to know.
As far as sheet masks goes this ticks all the right boxes and I have used many sheet face masks from different countries and this is a great one to try.
I will be stocking up on these before they run out as that is what happens with these products once they are gone they don’t bring them back.

Yet again Lacura has blown me away with a product that is so affordable.

LACURA Hot Cloth Cleanser

Hi Beauties
Been loving the products I have found in the last few weeks, especially trying them to see weather they are really worth our hard earned pennies.
====================
Today is a new product from the Lacura skincare range.
Lacura is sold in Aldi and in the last year have brought out quite a few products and I have always tried to get my hands on them as soon as they are out.
This is another new product Hot Cloth Cleanser.
I do love a good cleanser and spend quite a few pennies on different brands, looking for the one. I know I will never find the one because well there are too many good cleansers on the market.
====================
£4.99 for 200ml.
Comes in a plastic squeezable tube with a snap lid. Easy for people with not a lot of strength in hands. For all skin types.
Dermatological Tested.
Skincare with cocoa butter & eucalyptus oil and extracts of chamomile rosemary & white tea.
====================

White cleanser and quite a thick consistency, scent is subtle and defiantly smells of cocoa butter. Feels so creamy and goes on so smooth.
Rub it into your skin and place a warm muslin cloth on your face. Leave for a few minutes then rub your skin with the cloth and rinse off.
When done I always rinse my cloth with cold water and wipe across my skin.
=========================
Well what can I say this cleanser worked and felt just like another product I use that is 4 times as expensive. My skin didn’t get irritated or itchy, it didn’t  bring me out in blotches ethier.
My skin felt lovely and clean and really fresh afterwards and so soft for the next couple of days.
This is defiantly one to buy if your on a budget but also when you can spend lots of money on expensive cleansers, why? I have used this a few times now and I really don’t feel the need to run of and spend my normal £15-£25.
Great product Laucra.

Size doesn’t matter

Hi Beauties.
Finally got round to buying a few bits again. There are so many products I have missed out on in the year and so many products that have launched this year that I had no choice but to a break and get ordering 🙂
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Today’s post is on this beauty
20180520_102835.jpg
From makeup Revolution I heart Revolution collection.
They have brought out mini palettes from the chocolate collection.
I absolutely love my big chocolate palette, so jumped at a chance of trying these smaller versions. I went for choc mint & Rose Gold. At £6 a palette why not.
So today is the turn of the rose gold palette.
20180520_104303.jpg
Like all of the palettes from Makeup Revolution, these don’t come with names of each eyeshadow and I am pleased with that because well let’s be honest who keeps the plastic cover with the names on and who can remember all the names too lol.
So for £6 you get a beautiful looking palette (yes I am always drawn to the packaging I just can’t help it ) 8 eyeshadows. 2 shimmers and 6 matte.
these 8 colours really are different but really compliment each other, I love how they have thrown a dark mustard and light pink into the mix too.
20180520_104520.jpg
The pigment from this brand is quite good, so again for £6 you know you are getting a great eyeshadow that lasts.
What frustrates me though is there is always 1 shadow that never seems to have any pigment to it…….. and this is the same with this palette. The last shadow is a dark pink shimmer but doesn’t come out very well on the eyes, you need to use a spray to help it. The shimmer is great to look at in the palette but on the eyes there really is nothing, but with Revolution it tends to be you can build and build on the colour yet this shadow just won’t play ball 😦
I have tried a pigment boost (that’s another post) and yes it works, it then comes out much stronger and you get a small amount of shimmer.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I have tried all the colours and I must say Revolution have done it again, they lasted well on the eyes, a fair few hours of colour is what we all want and they always deliver.
As long as you are not to heavy handed with the brush you don’t get fall out which is always great if you are one of those people who does their face first and eyes last.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
So all in all, a winner again. Small compact and with a mirror, perfect for holidays, travelling or i you are short on storage space.
Cute packaging and 8 shadows.
I am looking forward to trying the mint choc one next and if all goers well the whole mini collection 🙂

I Finally Did It

Hi Beauties
Yes I am back 🙂 It has been a very long time since I last blogged, a lot has happened in my life to know really where to start. I have been doing the odd youtube videos but even that took a back seat for a while and I still haven’t managed to get fully back on track there too.
I am back now as I have wanted to get back here in the land pf blog for ages but just couldn’t find away of writing that made sense ( not that I make a lot of sense lol).
Now I am in my own space for blogging, I have a blogging/vlogging room, I am so proud of myself as I worked hard, saved hard and decorated hard to do this room and I intend to be in here quite a bit now doing what I love most and that’s talking to you guys about products I love or hate or well are just ermmm 🙂
———————
My blogging room is the smallest room in my home, my son moved out 6 months ago and is very happy in his new adventure, so once I knew he was settled and wasn’t coming back (hope I am not talking too soon here ) I decided it was time to get this room into my own personal space.
——————–
30123915_2137452123207823_607493398550544384_n

Nearly finished here, need to hook the computer back up, put the mirror up and tidy the wires.
29793050_2137452083207827_2472854921347596288_n
A few bits and bobs on there for now, but this is now where I can store products that have been sent to me or bought to review as well as my Mrs Potts and chip stuff lol 🙂
30127114_2137452006541168_7235452303711404032_n
Still need to paint these units white, a place for peace and candles and storage for my over flow of products 🙂 Added canvas that I made ages ago but didn’t have the heart to let go off.
29792844_2137451979874504_3234088916231389184_n
Last but not least my favourite part of the room, this beautiful frame my daughter sorted out and got me for Christmas.
——————
So as you can see not only have I been busy decorating and almost organising, I know can lock myself away from the hustle and bustle of life and get blogging/vlogging on a regular basis.
I am so looking forward to interacting with you all again and reading great blogs from you.

Salon Science

Hi Beauties
Shall we talk about science? No? ok then lol, but we shall talk about salon science 🙂
I few months back I decided to join up for the Latest In Beauty box, a monthly box where you get to choose your own products. While prowling the products I came across salon science a spray for scalp relief. I had a read a decided to give it ago.

Hydrasoothe cooling spray.
:soothes and calms a distressed scalp
:Ultra-hydrating for instant moisture
:Protects against environmental stress.

I tend to use jojoba or moringa oil on my scalp as it really cleans the scalp of day to day oil, hairspray ect. But I don’t always have the time, so I thought this may be a handy thing to try. 1st the smell, it is not a strong smell but I swear it is baby powder, it is so subtle and makes me feel like I have just thrown talc in my hair.

Like everything I try, I wanted to make sure my scalp was ready for it, so I didn’t do my oil that week & to be honest for a while I have had this awful itchy patch on my head, that no matter what I couldn’t get rid of, so now was the perfect time.
I separated my hair so I could see my scalp and gave it a spray, it does slightly wet your hair, so after trying it a couple of times I found if you spray in sections and then use your 2 fingers and in circle movements give a little massage it tends to soak it up quicker.

It leaves a nice subtle smell to the roots but does take that horrible itchy feeling away, after about 3 days of a spray the patch has gone and 4 weeks later hasn’t returned.
I use this maybe a couple of times a week, when I feel my scalp getting irritated & within minutes it feels great again.

There is one down side to this spray and that is the next day my roots do look a bit greasy, but if I don’t have time to wash my hair nothing a good cotton pad wipe on the roots to clean away the oil helps.

A great formula that gives almost instant relief. Ideally I need a travel size one so if I am out and about I can just grab spray rub & go.

Till next time beauties 🙂

GOPO Joint Health

Hi Beauties
So as you know from time to time I get to review products for free & in return I give an honest and fair review. So today’s blog is all about GOPO Joint Health.

I found this to be an interesting one because as I am getting older I have started to get a few different pains that have nothing to do with the likes of arthritis. The doctors always say just take pain killers to help you through it. No thank you doctor I don’t want to rely on pain killers daily.

A few weeks ago these supplements arrived and I got to work, taking notes daily to see if there was any changes and if so how long and if they help.
So let me tell you a bit about them 1st.
INGREDIENTS
:Rose-hip
:Gelatin
:Vitamin C. (sodium ascorbate)
Content per capsule:
3g rose hip powder with 524pg of GOPO (glycoside of mono & diglycerol)
Also provides 40mg vitamin c.
Directions:
3-5 weeks 3 capsules twice daily.
Maintenance dosage. 2 capsules twice daily.
Taken with water or split capsule and add to food.
DSC_1314

Now if your like many of us that don’t want to understand the jargon that comes with all these different products on the market and just want to see if our money is going pay for something to work then read on. Because I could sit here and right about all the in’s and out’s but that’s not what most people want to read.

I got to work straight away, I took the capsules out and popped them in my pill container so I didn’t forget to take them each day.  They are rather large which was a little scary lol.
I didn’t notice any thing at all for the first 8 days, but on the 9th day (remember I wrote daily notes) I felt just a slight less pain in my hip. Getting on/off a high stepped bus for a little person like me hurts especially when what I call a flare up of pain in my hip happens. When it does flare I tend to have to walk around for a while just to almost loosen it and then I walk with a slight limp for a while till it eases.
DSC_1315

By day 11 I then noticed even less pain in my hip which really felt good, it didn’t feel as tight and I didn’t need to walk around for as long, I also noticed my wrist not clicking as much, yes I click lol because I spent many ours with my blogging at the computer I started to notice my wrist getting stiff and then clicking, after day 11 it really had change the feel of the wrist and my fingers too, its hard to explain but I just didn’t feel as stiff which in return was less clicking.

After 2 weeks of taking these capsules daily I noticed a big change in how I was feeling when I woke up, I ache I struggle coming down the stairs, I normally take one step at a time, but I have no need to now. I am no longer feel stiff, no I am not pain free every day but I can honestly say the pain is now just a slight dull feel that doesn’t need pain killers. I don’t limp with pain it is just again a dull pain that I do actually forget it is there.

Now 2 weeks ago I stopped taking them as I was going through a family crisis and everything went to pots. after a week of things starting to settle I noticed my hip starting to hurt more again and the limp omg the limp wouldn’t go away. I got straight back on these capsules and I am just starting to feel the ease again.
DSC_1317

I have had a side affect to these capsules and that is my toilet run lol. I have IBS and normally anything new in my system causes me agony but actually this has had the opposite affect, it actually has helped me to go easy (yes we are talking about the toilet)
It seems to have helped with ease of going and on a daily bases. I don’t get the painful stomach aches that are a sign that I will be going to the toilet.  At 1st I did worry about this because I thought maybe my IBS will start to cause me more problems but after a few days it just became routine and now I can say yes it is definitely a side affect but a good one for me.

Has this made a difference to my life YES 100%, it has worked far better than some of the brand supplements I have tried over the years. I can honestly say that the rose-hip powder combined with vitamin C is a must for any body but even more so for us with a few years added to us.
I will be keeping up with these capsules & will update if there is any more changes.

Icellage Skin Care

DSC_1238
Today I want to talk about another skin care range Aldi has brought out.
Icellage by Lacura.
There are 4 products in the range.
Intensive Serum 30ml £6.99
Eye Gel 15ml £5.99
Night Cream 50ml £6,99
Day Cream 50ml £6.99
I own 3 of them.

I am a big fan already of Lacura skin care, because not only is it so affordable and a wide range of products to choose from but it actually is great stuff, so when they brought the Icellage range out I jumped at the chance of buying.
DSC_1244

Day Cream. For all skin types.
==========
From the website.
Ensures deep moisturisation to reduce wrinkles. Provides a silky-feeling, youthful, smooth and radiant complexion.

Features
Contains PhytoCellTec nunatak, based on the stem cells of an alpine flower that survived the last ice age
Penetrates deeper skin layers to ensure dermal cell vitality
Skin looks younger, radiant and smoother
Provides a silky-feeling
SPF20
Dermatologically tested

For my thoughts,
I can honestly say I love this face cream, it is so light weight and melts on touch, making it even easier to for your skin to soak it and get to work. I have to be honest I haven’t noticed a great change in my lines or blemishes but I have notice my skin feeling soft & plump again.
It has a subtle fragrance to it & the scent to me is soap, which I don’t actually use on my face, but it is fresh and clean scent which does give you that almost perked up feeling.
I can’t get enough of the cold feeling from the cream, it feels like you have left it over night in the fridge & really does give you that refreshing clean feeling. That is a big love of mine 🙂
£6.99 is a bargain & so affordable for what you are getting.

Eye Gel £5.99
From the website.

Intensive hydration improves the suppleness of your skin, minimises wrinkles and provides a cooling effect. The result – a youthful, radiant, smoother complexion. Suitable for all skin types.
Features
Contains PhytoCellTec nunatak, based on the stem cells of an alpine flower that survived the last ice age
Penetrates deeper skin layers to ensure dermal cell vitality
Skin looks younger, radiant and smoother
Minimises wrinkles and provides a cooling effect
Dermatologically tested
My Thought
I have just started noticing a difference in my eye area. It has lightened my dark circles. I could spend hours going in circles with this gel because it is so soothing and cold and really wakes my eyes up. My lines are not as crepe paper looking and I think that’s because my under eyes don’t look as dry with this gel, but definitely lightened my dark circles. So pleased with this gel. Has no scent at all to it.

DSC_1243

The 3rd product I bought was the serum.
From the website.

This Lacura Icellage Intensive Serum has been carefully formulated to deeply moisturize and smooth skin, while minimizing wrinkles. The result – a youthful, radiant, smoother complexion.
Features
Contains PhytoCellTec nunatak, based on the stem cells of an alpine flower that survived the last ice age
Penetrates deeper skin layers to ensure dermal cell vitality
Skin looks younger, radiant and smoother
Minimises wrinkles
Dermatologically tested

My thoughts.
This is a great serum, really soaks into the skin and gives your skin like a flat balance, as if it is filling in all the pores and uneven skin. It doesn’t leave that horrible film feeling like some serums do and with this and the moisturizer combined it has helped plump my skin leaving it fresh looking and healthy again.

All in all these products are another 10/10 from Aldi. Cooling, refreshing and hydrating, with light weight face cream with spf20 , you cannot go wrong for the spring and summer months.

Aldi Argon Body Oil

Hi Beauties.
Last week I post this picture of the new Argon Oil Range from Aldi.
DSC_1189
I have been trying them out to see what I think and feel about the products and are they really going to work for the cheaper prices Aldi charges.
So today is on my opinion o the body oil.
DSC_1230
I bought this for £2,99 and as you may know I do like a good skin oil. I had heard so much about argon oil /Moroccan oil for the hair, but not as much for the skin.
Is it really going to have enough Argon oil to help quench the thirst of dry skin.

So let’s start with the smell. it has a very subtle almond smell that just reminds me of holiday smells. The color is an orange  color and consistency is a little runny.
I sampled this on my video and the 1st thing I noticed that it wasn’t like an oil at all, it doesn’t have that film that a lot of oils leave behind, it isn’t greasy, so it’s an easy use and go product.
This can be used both on dry skin or damp skin, I like both, when getting out the shower I rub it all over and can get dressed right away as it really does disappear into the skin quickly. leaving no trace behind.
I have been using this every morning and night on my elbows too, which I do suffer with hard skin there and if I don’t oil regularly they can become sore. As I haven’t been keeping up with my skin care I also haven’t been oiling ether, so this was perfect to try out on hard skin elbows.
After about the 3 day I noticed they had calmed in color, as they are normally quite a dark tone and the softness was starting to come through. On the 4th day I noticed I had a couple of spots which I thought here we go I am not going to be able to carry on using it, but this only lasted the day and was ready for more oil.
Now I use this all over my body when having a bath or shower but unfortunately I can’t use it on the top of my chest. I am very sensitive there and get quite spotty too, this does irritate there. But works fine everywhere else, even after shaving.

For me this is definitely worth the £2,99 and I am actually on my second bottle due to everyone else pinching it.
If you have an Aldi sort near you, why not nip in and give this product a try.

Aldi Makeup, Is It Worth The Buy?

Hi Beauties
I am a little annoyed with myself because I took photos with the makeup on for this blog and I only went and deleted the whole SD card 😦
I have took some photos of the products and can still tell you my thoughts.

I heard Aldi was doing makeup a little while back, but couldn’t get hold of it, that’s the only thing that annoys me about Aldi, they bring some great items out never to be seen again ot they don’t get them out on the shelves in all stores.

Now I am a big fan of the Lacura Caviar skin range, so when I heard about the makeup I really wanted to get my hands on it. Finally after going for a long journey I found a store that had them. ( Would you believe 2 days later they had them in my local store).
So I got straight to work on trying these products out, so I could let you guys know my thoughts.
Ok to I must let you know first that the store only had the shade Amber (300) which I thought maybe a bit too dark, but as I do, I buy it anyway and workout what I need later to make it work for me lol.
DSC_1216
Up first Illusion Touch 2 in 1. |Makeup & Concealer.
This threw me because it is rather a big lid for a foundation. Then I remembered someone sending me a photo about the concealer in the lid DUH!!!
So as I thought Amber is a tad too dark for me, but that doesn’t change how it goes on ect.
Foundation is in a glass bottle with a pump, yes no messing about. It comes out a bit thick which had me worried but it goes on pretty nice, it spreads easy , mid to full coverage and almost covered my pores, I say almost as I could still see them but not as much as without. It covered my blemishes but I will add I would have felt better if I was putting color corrector on 1st, but if you don’t have many blemishes or redness you will do well with this.  I wasn’t going to use anything that wasn’t Aldi so I could give it a fair go. Now I was at 1st going to use a drugstore primer but decided against it so possibly with primer my pores would have been invisible. I was pleasantly surprised that there is no orange tone ether. This foundation lasted around 4 hours before I needed to blot it. Again no setting spray or powder. By the 7th hour I checked and I did look a bit too shiny and a little cakey where the foundation was started to clog on my face. But again if I used setting products I think this would be a definite winner for cheap affordable foundation.
Concealer is wet consistency which I find good for people with fine lines. It is not full coverage and did sink into my lines. I definitely need to use color corrector before hand. I am not going to jump about with the concealer as the foundation is great concealer stayed on ok but by 7th hour looked like I had nothing left.
£6.99
8/10 foundation
5/10 Concealer.
DSC_1214
Concealer Pen
Again only shade on offer was Amber (300)
Yes too dark for me but I still tried this.
It is a pen shape with a brush on one end and clicker on the other. Click the end to get the concealer out. This is a little thick for my under eyes but full coverage. It sunk into my lines before I could get my blender to get working. For younger people this would be great. I used it to cover my blemishes as this time I was wearing a foundation that was my shade. It covers spots and blemishes great and stayed in place all day.
Need more shades so people can buy to wear.
£2.99
7/10
DSC_1211
Highlighting Trio 01 Rosy glow.
At 1st swatch I thought opps this is going to be very powdery but it may look it but its not, Its smooth and feels almost like silk. I has tiny shimmering glitter, not over shimmering just enough. I didn’t want to contour/bronze with a shimmer so used the blush and highlight. A nice subtle pink that just gave me a subtle glow didn’t look like I had blush on, the highlighter again is subtle just enough to say oooo nice. These are med pigments and perfect for building up or just for a nice natural looking glow.
They didn’t last all 7 hours but that I feel had a lot to do with the foundation moving down my face lol.
£2.99
7/10
DSC_1208
3D Effects Mascara.
This got me because I thought is this going to be like those awful (mentioning no names)
mascaras that are suppose to give you lashes so long that you can’t wear your glasses. Well the answer is NO it’s not like them.
It is just an ordinary mascara that coats the lashes. The brush is a little big which is hard when you have deep set eyes, Fiber and fully round. It is a wet consistency and as quickly as you put it on the top lashes it runs to the lower lashes lol. By the end of the day I had little crumb like bits of mascara on my under eyes. It is ok but there is no wow factor, it doesn’t do anything other than coat, it doesn’t lift the lashes or lengthen its just there.
£2.99
6/10
DSC_1209
Magic Curl Mascara.
After trying the 3d lashes I didn’t hold up much hope on this mascara and the last product I bought. The wand is fiber, slight curve and medium size. The consistency is a lot better than the 1st and not wet at all. This went on my lashes easy and didn’t touch my lower lashes. It did give some length to my lashes and gave a nice curl so you don’t need a lash curler with this one. It lasted all day, no heavy feeling or lash droop and was easy to take off with water and cloth. No bits of crumbs from this one which is good. This is by far my favorite of them all.
£2.99
9/10
All in all not bad products for the price. I would definitely buy the foundation, concealer pen and curl lash again if they have my shades in store.
Affordable and wearable for all ages especially on a budget. I think Aldi have pulled it out the bag again.
