Empties & speedy reviews #34 featuring Ren, Glamglow, Omorovicza, Oskia, This Works and more!
It's empties time again and over the past few weeks I have finished some of my favourite products. I'm really committed to finishing off products that have been open for a while and I'm delighted that my shelves are less heaving and my stash is becoming more streamlined. I have a mixture of skin, hair and body care products so let's get started!

Kickstart your day with Rituals Express Your Soul Limited Edition Shower Oil & Body Cream
When I was walking through Duty Free at Easter, the bright packaging of this Rituals Express Your Soul range caught my eye so I stopped to take a smell & was immediately entranced. It's funny how a scent can instantly transport you to another time and this product instinctively made me think of my Granda's garden because he always had Verbena flowering in the summer but also always had a lemon balm plant at his front door and he would give me some to put in my handbag from when I was around 5 right through to adulthood so that lemon scent is one that I love. If you like uplifting, citrus scents then this Express Your Soul range will be for you!

Review: Ben Nye Banana Powder
I think that (like most people), the first time I heard about Ben Nye Banana Powder was when Kim Kardashian's makeup artist mentioned it as one of the main products he used when doing her makeup and it pretty much sold out instantly. At the time, it wasn't very easy to get hold of this side of the Atlantic and whilst it still isn't widely available, thanks to Precious About Makeup, we can now order online. It has been recently repackaged and I was kindly sent a tub to test.

Two foundations that deserve more hype: Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation & Givenchy Teint Couture Blurring Foundation Balm
Although I have around 15 foundations (far too many!) in my current makeup stash, there are two that I am currently obsessed with and I want to share my thoughts on them with you today because neither gets the hype they deserve.

Luxury skincare at great prices with Fragrance Direct
When you hear the name Fragrance Direct, you think perfume/aftershave but maybe not necessarily skincare or other beauty items, but you should! I was really pleasantly surprised when I saw that they stock luxury skin and beauty brands such as Elemis, Murad, Clinique, Decleor, Nars, Clarins, Alterna and more. All products are 100% genuine and they offer free UK delivery on orders over £20 or free International delivery on orders over £75 but if you don't want to spend that much, their delivery charges start at £4.99. I had a good browse of the site and most prices are the equivalent to those in Duty Free, with some brands being reduced by up to 60%!!

Get Spring ready with new season fashion & beauty picks from Debenhams!
Good morning! I hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather that we are currently having? With this change of weather in mind, today I am bringing you my new season fashion & beauty picks, all of which are currently available in Debenhams. Spring sees us shed the cosy jumpers, coats, heavy foundation and dark lips that we've worn in favour of lighter everything - fabrics, skincare and base products!

The bad skin day makeup edit: dull, inflamed or spotty skin
No matter how well we take care of our skin, we all have bad skin days - sometimes due to lack of sleep, over-indulgence, illness, medication, reaction to products - the list goes on! Today I want to share my favourite products to use on my skin to combat dull, inflamed or spotty skin. I'm focusing solely on makeup rather than skincare because this is for quick fix solutions and I'm only talking about base products - no blushes or highlighters.

One sweep eyeshadow favourites featuring MAC & By Terry
We all know that I'm an eyeshadow addict but there are days when blending 3 eyeshadows just seems like too much hard work and too time consuming - that's where one sweep shadows come in handy. Today I am sharing my favourite one sweep shadows with you - most of them are MAC shadows but there are also two shadow sticks, which are the ultimate for lazy eye days.

Brand Focus #3: Oskia
This month's brand focus features only five products, which is a lot less than I usually review when doing a brand focus but, as with all of my other posts, it's all about honesty and I only own five products from the brand, which this month is Oskia. That being said, some of these have been repurchased on several occasions so my love for them is real and I think I can still give you an insight to what this brand is about from these products. As with my other Brand Focus posts, this is not sponsored.

The coral/peach blush edit featuring Nars, Urban Decay, Benefit, MAC, Hourglass & more!
I'm the kind of person who knows what she likes, has a type and (I like to think) knows what suits her. I also, clearly, have an obsession or addiction some people might like to call it! I think the photo above speaks volumes in that regard! Today I want to show you my favourite peachy/coral blushes and enable you if you also have a weakness for them!

Recent additions to my skincare routine that I have been loving featuring Pixi, Pestle & Mortar, Peter Thomas Roth & more!
Over the last 6-8 weeks, I have added some really fantastic products to my skincare collection and I want to share my thoughts on them with you today. You know that skincare is my "thing" and although I am committed to finishing lots of almost empty products (see my empties posts here), I couldn't resist adding some new products to my collection!
