Honest reviews, regular hauls and all things beauty.

Empties & speedy reviews #2 featuring Elemis, Clinique, Xen Tan, This Works, Macadamia & more!



So it's empties time again! I am really on a mission this year to clear my shelves of products & use them up, so I've told myself that I can only buy products when I have used some others up! I always store my empties in this  Ursula Celano dressing table jar because it is just so bright & pretty!


I finished 3 small bottles of perfume this month (sob, sob!). The first is from Calvin Klein - a 30ml bottle of Euphoria. This is one of my favourite perfumes & I always like to have a bottle on the go. Luckily I have another larger bottle so I don't need to repurchase just yet. Next is Acqua Di Gioia - this is a beautiful, refreshing scent. It is quite minty & citrusy and I just love having this fragrance in summer. Also, from Armani I have Acqua Di Gio, which is similar but not quite as minty. It smells clean, if that makes sense & very uplifting! I don't have back-ups of either of these unfortunately, so will keep my eye out for any offers!

Foundation favourites featuring Armani, Lancome, Chanel, Nars, YSL & more!





In my quest to find my perfect foundation, I have gathered up quite the collection & I thought I would share my thoughts on them with you today! My skin is dry/dehydrated & I've never found one foundation that sits perfectly all of the time & gives that luminous glow I like. I don't like a matte finish & I like my skin to look dewy. So with that in mind, I have tried & tested many foundations!

REVIEW: Comparing hair oils featuring Kerastase, Percy & Reed, Moroccan Oil & Macadamia Natural Oil

I am a big fan of hair oils in a never-ending bid to hydrate & protect my hair. I currently have 5 in my collection, although I wouldn't repurchase all of them. I don't think it is necessary to own more than one, but I kept buying until I found "the one" & thought I would share my thoughts on the oils I own with you today.

I will start with the one that is probably most well known: Moroccan Oil. This is the original version - it also comes in a light version for fine hair. When I first used this, I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread! It helped my comb to just glide through my hair & reduced drying time - result! However, over time I found that it left a lot of build-up in my hair & I just felt that I couldn't get my hair to feel clean. I tried using a clarifying shampoo, but it really just took time & lots of washing for my hair to feel clean & non-greasy again. Having said that, this oil really gives my hair a beautiful shine & it is nice to use occasionally rather than after every wash. Maybe the light version would just suit my hair better.
