Yon Ka Skincare review featuring Masque No.1, Hydra No. 1 Serum & Lotion Yon Ka





A few months ago I purchased some Yonka skincare products because I liked the moisturiser I was using from the range (Vital Defense) and so wanted to explore the brand some more. I purchased Masque No.1, Hydra No. 1 Serum & Lotion Yon Ka Invigorating Mist and I am going to share my thoughts in them with you today.

REVIEW: Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster & Pure Truth Activating Oil





I bought this duo set from Ole Henriksen last month, it's called the Merry And Bright Duo Holiday Kit and it has a value of £47, although it only costs £18, which is a bargain. I have never tried anything from Ole Henriksen previously, but the brand has been on my radar for a while. The skin Goddess that is Caroline Hirons likes Ole H products, so that's a green light for me to try some of the products. I wanted to try both of these products so the set was absolutely perfect for me. Each bottle contains 15ml and a little goes a long way. The products included are Truth Serum Collagen Booster & Pure Truth Activating Oil.

REVIEW: Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment




I bought this Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring Treatment a few months ago but only started using it in the last few weeks. This hair mask is designed for my hair type exactly - dry & damaged from years of colouring, heated tools & ill-health! I had never used any Aveda hair products before so I was curious if it would be worth the money. It is quite expensive at £29.50 for 150ml, but I can safely say that if you can afford it, it is worth it.

Lookfantastic November Beauty Box





This is my second Beauty Box from Lookfantastic.com and just like last month, I am very happy with it! It contains six very generous samples for a total of £15 with free post.

Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Medium Brown






I have used an eyebrow pencil for years & my favourite one is the Brow Wiz from Anastasia Beverly Hills but when that was running low, I decided to try their Dip Brow Pomade for a change because I had read so many positive reviews! I was a little nervous about using it because I have never used a cream product on my brows before, but I need not have worried because it is easy to use.

REVIEW: Stila Mile High Lashes Mascara





If you don't already know, I am a huge mascara fan! It would be my desert island product & just love how it opens up my eyes & makes me look more awake! I recently purchased Stila's Mile High Lashes mascara & want to share my thoughts with you today.

The Triple Threat Facial for tired/dull skin, featuring GLAMGLOW, Elemis & more.





I'm in the middle of a 3 month course of medical treatment for chronic Lyme Disease and it is taking its toll on my skin & hair. So to combat that, I have been trying to take extra care of it. I didn't want to spend more money on new products, so I had a look at my skincare stash & decided that a triple threat facial would be the way to go! I have been doing this once a week for the last few weeks & I really think that it is helping my skin to look a little better/healthier.

Recent purchases #11 featuring Nars, Xen Tan, Stila, Ole henriksen, YSL & more!




I have another haul to share with you all today. I didn't buy all of these products in one go, it was more a case of over a few weeks, but I thought I would bundle them together in one bumper post! I will post reviews separately when I have had a chance to road test everything.

Empties & speedy reviews #5 featuring Clinique, Origins, Darphin, Dermalogica, Estee Lauder, Soap & Glory & many more!






My beautiful Ursula Celano dressing table tidy bag is full to the brim again, which of course means that it is empties time! I have mainly face & body products in here, with a small number of make-up & haircare too so let's get started! 

REVIEW: Alpha H Age Delay Cleansing Oil





I recently finished my Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel & instead of repurchasing, decided to change things up & try a cleanser from Alpha-H. I adore their Liquid Gold Treatment, which I use at night (not every night!), so thought I would try a cleanser from the range & decided upon their Age Delay Cleansing Oil. I love to use cleansing balms at night, but for mornings I prefer something a little lighter, yet still hydrating.

REVIEW: TIGI Bed Head Superstar Blowdry Lotion





I purchased this TIGI Bed Head Superstar Blowdry Lotion because I loved the Queen for a Day Thickening Spray so much and the combination of the two should really work to create off the scale volume! Any review that I read on this product said that it builds body, holds it style & would add bounce.

Love at first sight! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette





A few months ago, I fell in love with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion that I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday & I have really enjoyed using it. It is different from other blushes that I own, because it is mixed with ambient lighting powder & the marbled effect leaves my skin looking very healthy from within, if you know what I mean? At £28, they are not the cheapest blushes so I knew it would be a while before I could justify adding another to my collection because I already have quite a few blushes. This changed, however, when I discovered that a palette with a trio of blushes was being released and when I heard about the £10 reduction, I was completely sold & pre-ordered immediately.

REVIEW: GLAMGLOW Power Mud Mask





I am a face mask addict, just had to put that out there! They are my favourite treatments to use & hugely important on my never ending quest to achieve hydrated, clear skin. If you have read any of my previous skin care posts, you will already know that I am a huge fan of GLAMGLOW masks, in particular. The Youthmud Mud mask  is excellent for exfoliating & brightening the skin and the ThirstyMud mask is the very best that I have ever used, in terms of hydration. Yes, they are incredibly expensive but they really are worth it and there are usually weekly discount codes in emails from the online shopping sites, so that is the time to grab them.
