Moroccan Hair Oil

Hi Beauties
I wanted to talk about this product I got from my last Latest In Beauty Box.
IMG_20170404_140530_713
I have heard about Moroccan oil but never got round to trying it, I have used cheaper versions of Argan oil and some are ok but others really don’t work.
So when I noticed this I remembered a hair dresser once saying for it to be Moroccan oil it had to contain at least 70% of the oil. So this seemed perfect.
The 1st thing is the smell, it has to me a smell of holidays, hot sunny places on the beach, it really is inviting.
These oils claim to help protect against daily pollution damage and stress that can really make the hair damaged and dull.  Help reduce frizz and soften dry hair and protect from split ends. Helps prevent hair loss.

I love the feel of this oil on my hair , I use a few drops on my fingers and run it threw my hair. When leaving it to air dry I notice my curls really bounce but using the hair drier my hair is just the same, yes it has tamed a bit of frizz but being a frizz head anyway not much can help it stay smooth all day.
The best thing about this oil is the smell, it smells so good and even after a nights sleep it has that smell. This I think is great if you don’t have time to wash that day.
Now my hair is starting to feel fuller and I am hoping that this protects the loss I am having on my forehead line, because it seems to be reducing quite quickly, but only time will tell on this. I enjoy the fact that I still get the same just washed, bounce, fuller feel even after a couple of days, it really has took a lot of stress out of washing my hair often.

It also hasn’t stripped my hair color but has enhanced the grey ( really it’s silver) it has almost turned white lol, but it looks nice through the curls of brown and shine.
Hair really feels healthy.

This product is used through out salons and many stylists to the stars add this to their clients routine.
So as you can imagine it is expensive. For 125mls I found the cheapest for £28.00/
They offer a few different products in this collection, from repair shampoo and conditioners to shine sprays.  Once I can afford to spend on a but of hair luxury you know where I will be buying mine from.

Moringa Oil

Hi Beauties
I was asked by Wikaniko if I would like to try Moringa Oil nearly 3 weeks ago, I should mention I am not being paid for this review and everything I write is my 100% honest opinion.

So as you know I absolutely love skincare and even more oils, so when I was asked I jumped at the chance to try something new. I quickly visited their here to read up on what I was about to receive.
The 1st thing that jumped out at me was anti-aging, well our eyes do light up at these words don’t they 🙂 Wikaniko’s Moringa oil is extracted from  fresh harvest of seeds to retain quality, potency and efficacy.so let’s to put this too the test.

I tend to use oils for a couple of months and then leave my skin bare for a while to eel the benefits of natural oils, so this came at the right time as I had finished my last bottle 6 weeks before.
dsc_1151.jpg

The 1st thing I noticed was it.s color and texture, it comes in a thick plastic pump bottle and is almost a brown color and the texture is not like most oils I have used, it is thick with a slight out door fresh smell. I began by putting this on my hands, I always do hands as this is the quickest place to wash it off if it is going to irate. It disappeared without a trace on my skin, my skin just soaked it up and that was it, no oil dripping or oily hands, it didn’t irate or leave a burning feeling so I began using this on my hands day & night for a few days,I then added this to my elbows because this winter I have took a bashing on my skin 😦 I found after a few days use that the cracked elbows are back to my nice soft table leaners again 🙂 My hands are nice and subtle but then came the negative, this is lovely but it does make my cuticles look dirty, which really annoys me because I don’t want to wash my hands while the oil is getting to work.
Ok so now it was time to test out what I had been reading about how it can help itchy skin or eczema because of the anti bacterial and inflammatory properties.
When I shave no mater how I do this. what tool I use or creams ect I will still itch. Also at my monthly cycle my skin feels so itchy it is almost burning, my daughter has underlined eczema and suffers badly. 1st her hands within a week went from being old ladies hands to dryish with no cracks, after nearly 2 weeks her hands have softened up and now just little red patches.Her arms and legs took one week to clear up and now just little patches pop up here and there so she grabs the bottle and rubs it in again.
Since I have been using this I have had no major itchy fest, I still itch but noting like it was which is great. just a slight itch and its all over.
I also tried this on a bad patch on scalp ( I had already got a product ready for this) which nothing was even coming close to helping this sore itchy patch so adding this to my clean wet hair at the roots worked almost instantly.It is less sore and doesn’t itch, I just need to use it more.
Now I need to add I have used other  oils that work just the same but the lasting effects of this oil is good, it is strange that this doesn’t feel like oil on the skin, it feels like a thick cream was used so I don’t have to worry about it getting on my clothes.My face has been under stress lately and using my skincare just wasn’t enough, so I used this as a cleanser and over night oil and it has helped my breakout of muppet size spots came down and be less red.

Over all this is a great product to have in your skincare collection and even if you don’t use it every day just after a bath/shower your skin will defiantly benefit from this oil.

Till next time beauties,

A whole lot of shine

Hi beauties
Today I bring you a bit of shine 🙂
dsc_1083.jpg
Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighters.
3 in the collection and each cost £3,00.
Now I am no makeup artist and when names like strobing comes out it frightens me lol.
They keep bring new names out in the beauty world and to be honest now I have realized that strobe, highlighting, contour and bronzing well they are all pretty much the same things, one new name for one old way.
So at 1st when these started doing the rounds | was like ermmm no thanks still trying to get to grips with my way of doing makeup, but again it soon fell in that it was just a name and I can use it how I want 🙂

dsc_1079.jpg
1. VIVID baked highlighter. Ever glow lights.
A white highlighter with a touch of sparkle. I wondered if this would be too much on me but its quite subtle. Yes you can use it as a white with not too much blending but for me I blend blend blend and it leaves my upper cheek bones blinging 🙂
A little powdery but so soft like creamy.
dsc_1080.jpg
2, STROBE HIGHLIGHTER Gold Addict.
This is my favorite of the 3. This is a beautiful color and really enhances my upper cheek bones. I love to use this on my upper lip and cupids bow too as it is such a different color o shimmer I feel it really enhances where I put it.
Again a little powder fall out but so soft and feels creamy.
dsc_1081.jpg
3, STROBE HIGHLIGHTER Rejuvenate.

This is the one that really scared me lol well because I am so pale I thought this could end up making me look dirty. I used it when I was bronzing and with a bit more blend on top of my blend blend blend it actually turned out to be so nice.
This is going to be perfect for the summer tans.
A bit of bronzer then a beautiful shimmer on top just adds glamour to a days look.
Yep little fall out but like the others soft and creamy feel.

I think these are such a bargain at £3.00 each that you can’t go wrong buying them. a color for all looks, Lasts all day and even on a night out I come home and I am still shimmering .
I also think the swirl mountain bumps look of the product is attractive too, it really makes this seem like and expensive product.

Till next time beauties,
Remember always do what makes you happy

I bring you Renaissance

Hi Beauties
been dying to get this blog post written but needed to hold back as you know I like to test things 1st so I can be 100% honest with what I am writing, but now I have had these over a week now as that is all I have been wearing on my lips I can share my thoughts 🙂
So today’s blog I bring you…….
img_20170304_143116_196.jpg
Makeup Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks.
Well 3 anyway lol.
I you watch my videos when buying lipsticks I tend to buy 3 of a collection, this gives me enough lipstick to try them out and see weather I would be buying more.
I am a big fan Makeup revolution as it is a brand that is so affordable, great quality and keeps up with what consumers are wanting.
I own quite a lot of lipsticks from this brand and at 1st it was so affordable I was able to build my collection and now I buy because they are great lipsticks.
Ok so 3 weeks ago MUR launched the Renaissance collection and I was immediately on the website checking them out. I loved the new style packaging and wanted to try them for myself.
The 1st thing I noticed when they arrived was they are not plastic casing, this is a 1st or this brand. They have brought out different shape, colour casing but always plastic. These are metal or tin maybe but whatever the material they feel great, heavy  and solid.
It straight away reminded me of CT brand lipsticks which was quite exciting lol. They have gone a little further on the packaging this time too but embossing the name on the lid and adding it to the inside casing. Just adds more class in my opinion and all this just £4.00 each.
So I bought 3 and here’s my thoughts.
dsc_1076.jpg
1, Classic.
Red in color, this has no under tones it’s just a simple red which yes the name is perfect Classic red. Olden days film stars red lips lipstick.
This is the 1st one I tried as I do love a red lip 🙂 soft and glides on nicely, sheen finish and didn’t bleed into my pesky little lines on my upper lip lol.
I went about my day and just casually checking my lips every so often, as you do lol.
Yes it does transfer from lip to cup but doesn’t need that o quick I have ruined my lipstick look. I felt after about 3 hours I did need a top up, which is about normal on my lips.
dsc_1077.jpg
2. Renew
A beautiful creamy brown slight purple undertone lipstick. Again no bleeding and not as sheen as the Classic. Soft and glides easy. A beautiful color that is not over powering on the lips, I like to think this is more of an elegant lip color and love wearing this with simple makeup looks.
Last around the 3 hour mark again.
dsc_1078.jpg
3. Awaken.
A beautiful creamy brown nude lipstick. Again no bleeding and not as sheen as the Classic. Soft and glides easy. A beautiful nude that I have to be honest is my favorite out the 3. Who would believe that nude would be a favorite o mine, i you know me I am bold lip gal. But this is beautiful and goes with any makeup look and without makeup which is great because I get to wear lippie even on no makeup days Yes!!!
Last around the 3 hour mark again.
I have to say that Makeup Revolution have out done themselves this time on packaging and I swear they have changed the formula because as much as I love a MUR lippie these have to be the creamiest by far.
I am defiantly off to buy more of these, they are just perfect for this time of year 🙂

Beauty & The Beast LIB time.

Hi Beauties
Today I wanted to share with you the Collaboration box Latest in beauty has brought out.
Now Beauty & The Beast is my favorite Disney movie so when I knew LIB was bring this box out I knew I had to buy it.
I have a monthly subscription with LIB and on top of the box you can also buy extra boxes that are put together in collaboration with who it maybe at the time.
So this box cost me £20 and to be honest I wasn’t actually bothered by what was inside lol it was the box I wanted, because it will make a beautiful keepsake on my side.
—————————————————————–
So my box arrived 5 days after ordering and I couldn’t wait to get it open, off upstairs I went and made a video which I have to say was probably the most excited mad filming I have ever done lol. Video here
O
k so I opened the box and it felt like it was singing to me lol. The box it’s self is made of strong cardboard and the beautiful design is embossed and relly looks like a book, which I find so nice and appealing.
dsc_1058.jpg
The 1st thing I noticed when opening was how they had packaged it, with those wiggle paper worms and red material petals, this really is attractive.
I almost didn’t want to spoil it but then I was excited to see what was in the box after all.
————————————————————————–
dsc_1067.jpg
This beautiful compact mirror, has a rose design on the top and latest in beauty on the bottom. Its not very heavy and does feel cheap, but having said that it’s light so handbag friendly .
dsc_1061.jpg
Full size product and the cheapest I have found it is here for £32. Most places it is £40/45
that is really good for a £20 box.

Gatineau Pro-Radiance Enhancing Gommage

An exfoliator for sensitive skin, this uses a mild enzymatic formula to remove dead skin cells. No Beads which I really like. this gel formula is so gentle it can even be used over crows feet and around the eyes. Enriched with vitamin c to help boost skin’s natural defense.

dsc_1062.jpg
This is 10ml sample size. Actual size 40ml and can be found here for £23.
That works out for this sample £5.25.
caudalie vinosource moisture sorbet
Reactivates skins hydration, helping to maintain the water in your skin. Helps to keep skin soft and subtle.

dsc_1063.jpg
Full size product 3.4g. Cheapest I have found is here  for £9.99.

Hydrates and moistuises lips for 8 hours
Comes in 18 shades of satin-smooth colours, 100% natural ingredients, Creamy and lightweight feel, ideal for everyday wear.

dsc_1064.jpg
This freaked me out a bit because well it is used in salons mainly in US and not widely sold here, so couldn’t find it cheap anywhere,
Amazon are selling it here for £69 yes you read right £69. 286ml
Ours is travel size and 43ml which would work out something pretty mad for this product.
Translucent spray cleans up dirt & oils in the hair. Helps hair feel thicker and cleaner.

dsc_1065.jpg
Full size 30ml £8.00. product here
S
ample size 10ml £2.66.
I own a few of the sample sizes and they are a very good product.

The Ordinary

Hi Beauties
Today I bring you 3 little beauty finds that I have been loving for a few weeks now, they are called  The Ordinary cosmetic skincare by Deciem.
Click HERE for website
The Ordinary came to light for me when I was watching a youtuber talk about their primer and how for the price it was good stuff. So as you do with all products you don’t know, you research.
Basically what they have done is stripped back on everything except one thing, the ingredients you actually need. No fancy packaging (even though I love the look) no fancy fragrance, no ingredients that just makes the product up, just good old fashion product in a bottle.
Now this accounts for the price too, because there is no fanciness going into these products it reflex the price to pay. AFFORDABLE.
This is what we want isn’t it?
Well yes now and again I do get drawn in on those fabulous packaging too be quickly disappointed with the actual product and sometimes I love cheap and cheerful.
dsc_1048.jpg
These are the 3 products I bout.
from left to right, Advanced Retinoid 2%, High-Adherence silicone primer, Hyaluronic Acid 2%,

Advanced Retinoid 2%
Retinoid is used in skincare as part of an anti-aging skincare. and with me being a golden oldie I wanted to try this to see how well it worked against my aging skin.
Ok so with Retinoid you need to be careful of uv rays, so your advised to use this in the PM, also not to use any other Retinoid product along side this.
It comes in a brown glass bottle and a droplet. At night time once I have cleaned my skin I take the droplet and add a couple of drops onto the tips of my fingers. This is a runny consistency and is white so easy to see if its running away lol.
I apply these in circler movements around my face and you can feel it soaking deep in, I normally have to use the dropper twice to cover all my face.
I didn’t notice any change in my skin for the 1st couple of weeks with this product but now it is noticeable, the fine lines haven’t grown out on my crows feet the slight lines on my forehead are almost invisible (still there just not as noticeable) by morning I can feel the even feeling along my skin too.
Click Here for product.

Hyaluronic Acid 2%
HA helps the plumpness in the skin and also hydration.
I 1st tried this and my face went red, I worried at 1st but noticed it wasn’t burning or irritating so I carried on using this. You can apply this both am & pm but for me I only use this in the am. This too comes in a glass bottle and droplet. The formula is a bit thicker and clear.I do find this one doesn’t glide on the skin as easy as so I do it in stages, cheeks then nose ect. it soaks in quickly and I feel it gets to work right away. You can feel the skin smoothing as you soak it in and after a while I started to notice that plumpness I had been losing. After a couple of hours my skin felt so soft I couldn’t stop touching it lol, it is as soft as a babys bum.
Now what has changed since using this also is my makeup, my skin feels so good that now I don’t wear foundation on a daily basis, I find I can miss this step as my skin feels great and really does look great.
Click HERE  for product.

High-Adherence Silicone primer.
As I explained this product is how I came to know and love THE ORDINARY Range and I am so glad I stumbled across it. This is silicone which normally doesn’t quite sit well with my skin, it makes my skin shiny and almost slippery. So yes I had my doubts.
I was pleasantly surprised when it came, I squeezed a small amount on to my hand and to my surprise it is like a white face cream, after rubbing it in no shine no slippery feeling, I just felt soft.
This surprised me so off I went to try it on my face, it felt so light and it really did soak into my face like a face cream does. After applying foundation I was shocked to see it seemed like this primer was working as a filler, it gave the foundation an even surface to lay on and didn’t sink into my pores or lines. After 5 hours I checked my face, slight shine but I do have oily t-zone but nothing that a blot wouldn’t fix. I have used this a fair few times now and love it as must as the ones I pay around the £20 mark for. I now also use this primer if I feel I am having a bad day but don’t want foundation to cover up the cracks lol and again works well just using this as your base and nothing else.
Click HERE for product.

All in all I am so happy about these products that I have now asked for advice on other products to use from The Ordinary range. It really has given my skincare routine another kick up the backside and just in time for the spring weather of o naturel lol. You will be amazed by the prices of these products because it really does feel like I have been down Harley street and had treatment.

Zoeva Taupe. My heaven palette.

Hi Beauties
Let’s talk about Zoeva eye shadows.
Zoeva is the 1st higher end brand shadows that I ever tried and I am so glad I did.
Zoeva can be a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny as they are good quality products.
Ok so on with today’s palette.
img_20170304_091455_363.jpg
This is the TAUPE palette.
It comes in a sturdy cardboard casing. A sleeve for more protection and 10 shadows, each 0.5g.
Let’s start with the negative:
a small amount of fallout.
Now for the positives:
super pigmented.
Blends easy.
Long lasting,
Color for all occasions,
10 shadows 1 palette.
Powder but feels super creamy.
Shimmers and mattes.
Not over powering shimmer.

So as you just read the positives to this palette far out weigh the negatives. I left the palette how I use it to show you the fall out, I haven’t wiped it down for weeks, so you can tell it actually isn’t a lot.
When using these shadows I tend to only see a slight fall out when I have used the brush to hard on the pan.

dsc_1025.jpg
These are my all time favorite colors even though I actually use every color in this palette.
You can see by the swatches how pigment they are, also that the shimmers are gentle not over the top and therefore wearable for any occasion.
I have mentioned they are powder but on feel I would swear they are cream, the feel so soft and pack onto the lids with ease.
dsc_1021.jpg
On an every day look I love to use Sheens & Voiles, Handmade and Spun Pearl
dsc_1023.jpg
All 3 are shimmers but work so well together for an almost natural look.

This is my 2nd Taupe palette and they way I go through it I soon will be hitting pan again and onto my 3rd.

If you haven’t tried Zoeva eye shadows you are missing out. In the UK I buy mine from Beauty Bay at £18.50. That can look a bit frightening when buying a brand product for the 1st time, but if you do want to take the plunge this palette is a great starter on your raod to loving Zoeva.

Stylepro brush cleaner.

Hi Beauties
Today I wanted to let you know about the Stylpro makeup brush cleaner.
I was lucky enough to be bought this for Christmas, before this I had seen the odd review on this and other cheaper versions.
But like always I do read reviews but I do like to try things out for myself.
I have already made a review video, so if you want to watch that click here

Ok so its hard to show how to use this in pictures but I tried my best lol.
dsc_0652.jpg
This is what you get: A small glass bowl with rubber edging, hand device which takes 1 aaa battery, attachment, try of rubber holders all different sizes. I also got a bottle of the brush cleaner liquid as an extra.

first add just a small amount of liquid to the bowl and feel it with a small amount of warm water. Attachment then goes onto the end of the handheld device. Then you decide which rubber holder goes on to the brush and attachment.
dsc_0655.jpg
I am washing a blush brush, eyeshadow brush and a foundation brush.

Dip the brush into the water then switch on, the brush will then start to spin and open up, this gets right into the hairs to clean off everything. I do this for about 20 seconds.
dsc_0660.jpg
Then lift the brush up above the water and spin for about 10 seconds. This is now drying the brush. You need to be careful when using bigger brushes that you don’t hit the water when clicking on stop, I have done this a few times so it gets wet again lol.
dsc_0661.jpg
It really does clean and dry within 30 seconds and my brush is clean and fluffy again.
Now for the real test, foundation brush. If you are doing a few foundation brushes either wash 1st and clean water or very last.
As you can imagine the water gets filthy.
dsc_0663.jpg
water after cleaning foundation brush. Ok so I tend to have to leave these brushes spinning for about 1 minute because it has a lot to clean but it still cleans quicker than by hand.
dsc_0665.jpg
My brush is clean and soft right through.

You can see how clean my brushes are now. This took me 5 minutes to clean, dry and take photos for this blog and put away.
I have 62 brushes and I use to just keep using clean ones instead of cleaning them, so when it comes to cleaning it took around 2/3 hours and leaving them to dry over night.
I cleaned all my brushes in 25 minutes and they all where pretty much dry. The flat eye shadow brushes don’t completely  dry but they are dry enough to use right away.
But now I probably clean about 20 brushes at a time and that’s what 10 minutes all in.

So the question is…. How much is this and is it worth it?
£50 is a lot of money when you can find alternative products but for me it has made my cleaning brushes so much easier that I don’t find it a chore anymore. To have something clean without scrubbing and dry without leaving over night I would say yes worth every penny.
