😜;) I haven’t bought makeup for AGES, and finally decided that I needed better quality makeup. I was using Nude by Nature mineral makeup, which looked good early in the day, but wasn’t lasting all day. I was using a concealer also that wasn’t lasting. I had panda eyes at the end of the day!  🐼 I got sick of looking in the mirror at 3pm, appearing so incredibly tired. I got this Napoleon makeup a week ago and it seems to be doing exactly what I want. Lasting all day at work 😄 winning! A bit expensive but it’s great quality and will last me a while. Especially the concealer. Yesssss. :)🌞💗

Yesterday, I was so excited to go in for a hair appointment. Haven’t gone in a few months, and it felt like such a treat. I really wanted to lighten up a bit for Spring/Summer, and so I asked for the usual, balayage with more blonde. I wanted something warm, and my awesome hairdresser suggested this colour. A rose gold shade of blonde. So, I went along with it and I really love the outcome!

Tried out this nail polish which doesn’t require a base, or a top coat. Just whip it on, with 60 minutes under the UV lamp, and they’re all dry. Lasts for 7 days without chipping. It’s fricken fab! I’m always looking for the simplest, most efficient way of doing something. Once I try out the other colours, I’ll upload them to this post.

I’m wearing ‘wish’. You can buy the kit online, with $9 shipping, here.

The Girl You Love

 

Just recently I was spoilt with a complimentary beauty treatment care of The Girl You Love.

My aim is to inspire all you women out there, to pamper yourself!!! Here is a review of a fabulous treatment which made me feel good on the inside, as well as on the outside!

When your teeth need cleaning, you go to the dentist. When carpets need cleaning, we vacuum them. When you car is dirty, it gets washed.

What about your skin?

 

I decided to get microhydrabrasion….

Which is a beauty facial treatment, as technical as it sounds! A non-aggressive way of cleaning your skin compared to Microdermabrasion. For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, it is seriously the coolest beauty treatment ever! Literally. A cooling vacuum for the face really! The skin has pores which get blocked with dirt from makeup, sun block, moisturiser etc. Microhydrabrasion vacuums all the gunk out of your pores, leaving your skin looking and feeling AMAZING. Wait till I tell you the results…

There was even a little filter which collects all the dead cells & dirty bits found in the pores. Once I saw that, I thought, I’ve got to do this more often!

Kay, the beautiful and gorgeous woman behind The Girl You Love also gave me a fabulous, natural (which I love) Priori COFFEEBERRY (sounds delicious) Natureceuticals treatment. It felt so good on my skin.

I came out of these treatments feeling like a new woman. I looked in the mirror afterwards, and said out loud in excitement, I AM GLOWING!!!!! WOW! – Kay was not surprised 🙂

I hope you’re now feeling inspired to go and treat yourself. Whether it’s a facial, or just a manicure. Do something lovely for yourself!

Best Beauty Products Lately

 

Every now and then I like to share with you the products I’ve been using regularly and which I love, out of the many products sent to me by different brands to try, I only like to share with you the best. My last beauty product round up  was 6 months ago (p.s. I STILL use that benefit foundation I told you about. It’s the best!) Since then, here are some products I’ve been using…

 

❤ Johnson’s Daily Essentials Gentle Exfoliating Wash; An exfoliating face wash that you can use daily, which gets rid of all the dead skin cells and leaves your face feeling rejuvinated, soft and smooth! I love the smell too. That’s always a plus for me. I use this, and another facewash, and alternate between the two. So I’ll use this for one or two weeks, then I’ll swap and use my other one. It’s pretty cheap too… only around $9.

 

❤ Arbonne Concealer; Not bad for 32 dollars. I’ve been using this concealer for about 6 months now, along with my YSL one, and alternate betweem the two. I use this one more, as I like the way it compliments my skin. It really blends in well. I actually never used to wear concealer and wondered why I always kinda looked tired later in the day. Concealer just does something which keeps you looking awake and fresh all day. Those dark circles around the eyes just dissapear completely! Arbonne is a great brand which uses natural botanical ingredients. Can’t go wrong!

 

❤ Schwarzkopf Extra Care Marrakesh Oil & Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner; I’m a true believer in changing your shampoo and conditioner every once in a while. Just something my mum taught me to do. Even if it’s the same brand, but a different type. I enjoyed trying out this brand! It kept my hair in great condition, and left it smelling delightful. Ingredients include  Marrakesh oil and coconut milk! 

 

❤ Wet Skin Adult SPF 30+ Spray; Best sunscreen ever. I have been looking for this my whole adult life. A spray (which sprays on like a hairspray does on the hair), which is a no fuss and practical product to use. How easy. Just spray on to the skin, and rub it in a little. I can’t stand blobs of sunscreen cream that I need to constantly rub into my skin. Feels gross when you’re hot and sticky. I love this 30+ suncreen!!!

 

❤ SpiruLines Intensive Wrinkle Correcting Serum;  Left my skin feeling so cool and fresh after applying in the morning. Which is exactly how you want it to feel, especially in summer. To be honest, I can’t tell whether it improved my skin or not, as it’s mostly a long term solution. It has all sorts of good stuff in it. Minerals and proteins. However I was just trialling this product and don’t have wrinkes, so all I can say is that it felt good, and I’d love to use it when I’m older!

 

❤ Groomy toiletry bag; SO cute and keeps you all organised when going on a trip. Pack your toner, moisturiser, cleanser, face pads, makeup, toothbrush, soap and more. It fits everything in, and has all these compartments to keep them secure. The print is just gorgeous.
