NEW : La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] Unifiant - Review


I have been a fan of the La Roche-Posay original Effaclar Duo for years now and constantly re-purchase. It works wonders on blemish prone skin like mine. It helps reduce the appearance of scaring, prevents breakouts and unclogs pores. Plus you can't really go wrong with good ol' French Pharmacy skin care can you?
Recently I was offered a chance to review the new Effaclar Duo (+) Unifiant, which has the same amazing qualities as the original version we all know and love, but with added coverage.
Perfect for those no makeup-makeup days.

August Degustabox


This months Degustabox included a few new brands this month, some I have already had in previous boxes such as the Geeta's pastes & chutney and the Get More Vitamins Drink. The August box didn't quite blow me away like last months did ( Review here ) that one was pretty amazing.

Organii Every Day Organics - Sun Protection


When I was given the chance to review these suncare products from Organii I jumped at the chance, having 2 children and a fiancé who have the most sensitive skins imaginable, I was willing to try anything that would give good protection, while preventing any heat rashes or reactions. I got sent the Sun Milk - SPF 50 which is all I use on my children, and a sample of the After sun cream to try.

August Birchbox


The August Birchbox actually takes shape of a scuba birchbag this month. There are 4 bright colours you could receive..Coral Reef (pictured), pink pufferfish, yellow tail and blue fin. I love this idea as a makeup bag is always handy and a great addition to pack for your holidays. It's almost as if you are getting an added extra with this months box.
Birchbox have been going for years now, but if you are unsure what it is, it's a monthly beauty subscription service which is all a complete surprise till it arrives at your door.

Nail Trends - Elegant Touch Press on Nails


Chrome nails seem to be everywhere right now and I am all for it! I have been looking at online tutorials and those quick Instagram videos on how to achieve the look. It looks amazing but a right faff to be honest. Firstly you need a UV nail system - polishes and light, Then you have to use a pigment which you kind of scrub onto the nail revealing the stunning, shiny chrome look, following another coat of clear polish you have to cure to set it in place.
I haven't yet been able to find a salon locally which does this technique yet either. So while shopping at the weekend I came across these nails by Elegant Touch in Superdrug, how impressive do they look!!

Huda Beauty - Lip Contour


Everyone seems to be going crazy for these Huda Beauty lip products at the moment, I had awaited their arrival to the UK on Cult Beauty for some time, I signed up to the waiting list for the first release, and just my luck- I got the email on the way into town that they where in stock. I was frantically trying to get some in my basket, knowing they would sell out fast. baring in mind I was using the crappy 3G signal and the site crashes...didn't stand a chance. I got home and they where sold out. Then I heard they where coming back to Cult Beauty, so i added my email once again to the mailing list, and what happens they come back in stock while I am on holiday ...NOOOOO.
When I arrived back into the U.K I checked Cult Beauty again like a mad woman, expecting them to be gone, but as luck would have it they had them all in. They must have a bigger batch this time around.

Recent Beauty Favourites


I'm back after a little break, and kicking things off with my beauty favourites that I haven't been able to put down, or do without.

Starting off with a product that has been a favourite of mine for over a year at least! the Cocoa Brown tanning mousse. This is the newer darker shade and I love it so much more than the original.
This darker shade shows up a little more on my skin tone while looking natural and streak free, I have spoke about this before (HERE) if you want a more in-depth review on why its so amazing. I feel like quite the self tanner pro now, I have tried so many on the market and this still is in my top 3 and the cheapest of the bunch. If you are new to tanning this is just what you need.
