Clarins Aquatic Treasures: Summer Time Got Better!

Clarins Aquatic Treasures: Palm Trees, Ocean Breeze, Beach Vibes!

Clarins Aquatic Treasures Review.


Everyone needs a decent bronzer in their life, it just wouldn’t feel normal not to apply a touch of bronzer on the skin—whenever it’s in a powder, liquid or gel form there’s no excuse not to have an everyday bronzer in your makeup bag.

The key on wearing a bronzer ‘successfully‘ is to choose the correct shade for your skin tone, now this may seem pretty obvious not to buy the wrong shade but you’ll be quite surprised on how many people do buy the wrong shade, unless you want to go for that mucky, orange-tangerine look then by all means go for the completely wrong shade. sniggers

Vichy Dermablend: cover up your everyday skin issues, be skin confident with Vichy Dermablend!

Vichy Dermablend Review.

Vichy Dermablend Review.


Vichy Dermablend had a little revamp a while ago when the brand replaced its boring clinical-looking packaging to something a bit more up-market and sophisticated-looking.

The corrective stick (formally known as cream stick) has lost weight and looking a little more tempting than the previous old-fashioned bulky packaging. These are the products to be proud of, they will also fit perfectly in any size handbag (or man bag!)

I first heard about Vichy Dermablend a few years ago before I was a beauty blogger and remembering ordering the original cream stick for my acne scars and blemishes. Unfortunately for some bizarre reason I just couldn’t get on with it, the texture, consistency and application, so as you do I sent it back to Escentuals and luckily they accepted my reason for returning.

So, this year I decided to give Vichy Dermablend a second chance; I don’t like to write off a product completely without giving it another chance unless it gave me the most horrific reaction!

‘Blimey!’ I shouted as I applied the Corrective Stick directly onto some skin redness. Mum overheard me downstairs and replied with a giggling tone ‘what’s up?‘ I replied ‘this foundation it’s AMAZING!’. My mum knows how happy I get when I really like a product, but this time she wasn’t expecting me to jump around the house like child high on E numbers.

Formen Makeup Review: Makeup For Men? Hell Yeah!

Formen Makeup: A global Professional makeup brand just for men.

Formen Makeup Review.

Formen Makeup.

Sometimes it can be a little daunting for us men when looking down the makeup section alone acting all suspicious and uncomfortable, trying to locate that perfect shade concealer for those dreaded dark circles that your colleagues are spotting and commenting on everyday, it almost feels like ‘big brother’ is watching your every step with the looks from staff (and sometimes women).

I did some research online and found that men regularly use their partners makeup to cover up their imperfections; unwanted dark circles, noticeable blemishes and scars. Personally, this doesn’t surprise me in the slightest, men also want to look and feel good, but at the same time I feel there’s more pressure to ‘look your best’ so to speak, with the likes of constant advertisement everywhere displaying some hunky dory celebrity model posing for the latest aftershave release, it does make you wonder who’s to blame.

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint 

Nov 18

The Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint is the ideal complexion perfecter if you’re not wanting
that full make-up look.

Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint

Okay, so the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint has been out for quite sometime now around 3 years. I’m always on the search for a bit of cover for my face as I’m prone to discolouration + acne scarring. I always seem to stumble on a product that doesn’t quite give enough cover so it ends up going into Mum’s beauty basket, yes! A beauty basket filled with unused products and numerous tubes of those conditioning glosses that never seem to get used – I should start selling them!
