REVIEW: Oskia Renaissance Mask





If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you will know that I am a face mask addict. I have tried so many different types from so many different brands and always have a few on the go. I really didn't need to buy another mask, but a few weeks ago I bought Oskia Renaissance Mask after reading so many positive reviews and I want to share my thoughts on it with you today.

Recent purchases #21 featuring Smashbox, Becca & more!





I'm back with another mini-haul to share with you all! One is a repurchase and the other four items are new to me. I'll start with the repurchase, which is a non-negotiable for me. It's Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II (€83). This is a product that I hate to be without because it really keeps my skin in check - it helps with healing blemishes, repairing scarring, adding hydration and anti-ageing. This will be forever repurchased.

REVIEW: JANINA Ultra Whitening Toothpaste and Maxi White Whitening Strips 7 Day System




You might have seen in my recent empties post, that I finished a tube of Janina Ultra Whitening Toothpaste. It was sent to me for review purposes and I wanted to finish it before reviewing. This post isn't sponsored & as with every other review I post, I am going to be completely honest. I don't drink tea, coffee or red wine, or smoke, which are the usual teeth staining culprits, in fact I have never drunk any of these but my teeth still need help in the whitening department. I have tried various brands of whitening toothpastes before but never with great results and I have also tried Crest whitening strips, which I did get good results from but because I have sensitive teeth, they were painful!

Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Vs PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer




Last year I bought PIXI Flawless Beauty Primer and reviewed it here. It is a product that really gives a glow to the skin and looks great on days where you don't want to wear a base but maybe your skin is looking a little flat or dull and also under foundation as a traditional primer. I found this brilliant last summer when I had a little colour in my cheeks but in winter, when I was at my palest, I didn't reach for it very often because of the peachy colour it has. Now that it is spring/summer time again, I have been using it again but I recently bought Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow Primer and thought that, because they are quite similar products I would do a review of it and compare it to the Pixi product.

The Perfect Palette Tag Take Two!




I originally did The Perfect Palette Tag in October last year, but since then I have bought a good number of palettes so thought it was time to do an updated version. Being a total palette addict, this tag is perfect for me!

Question 1: Best Packaging: 
The Marc Jacobs Lolita Palette is just so sleek and stunning! Everything about it screams luxe and it is quite sturdy too. Love it!

Question 2: Best Colour Payoff:
This has to go to Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita quad, the shadows are incredibly pigmented and a light hand is needed with them.

Empties & speedy reviews #13 featuring L'Occitane, Clarins, Clinique & more!




My empties bag is full again so it's time to give you some speedy reviews of the products I've used up. I have a mixture of hair, face and body products with one random product in there too.

Hair:

I finished a large 1000ml tub of Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque. I bought this last July for £35.33 when it was on offer on Beauty Bay and it was great value because it lasted for almost 11 months. I love this hair mask - it really helps my dry and damaged hair to look healthy. Review is here and I will definitely repurchase it. (Edited to add that I have found the mask on allbeauty.com, link here for €41.17 with free delivery if anybody is interested!)

REVIEW: Alpha H Liquid Gold




Alpha H Liquid Gold is one of those cult products that every beauty blogger was talking about a few years ago. Sometimes when a product is hyped up, I wonder if it can really be that great or are so many bloggers talking about it simply because they received it for free! Spoiler alert - this product is worth the hype!

One for dry skin: Darphin Ideal Resource Smoothing Retexturizing Radiance Cream




I have dry/sensitive/dehydrated skin and am always on the lookout for good skincare products to help combats these problems. It's not that often that I repurchase a moisturiser because I'm always on the look out for the next best thing, but just recently I repurchased Darphin Ideal Resource Smoothing Retexturizing Radiance Cream because it has really impressed me. I have been using the Ideal Resource night cream since last summer and it is a firm favourite so I guessed I would like the day cream too & decide to take a chance on it a few months ago.
