Soap & Glory - SIT TIGHT XS

Introducing my new favourite!

I am the first to admit I’m a sceptic when it comes to cellulite banishing and skin firming products that promise me perfect toned legs. There is only so much the gym can do when it comes to achieving the perfect body; product does come into play a certain amount but from experience they only help with you feeling good and mostly the work needed to make it work sounds like a bit too much effort.
The roller balls at the end of this product make application easy and even – a bonus
It doesn’t smell.
It dry’s in a convenient amount of time
I felt the area warm up and the cool down as i sat down (this means its working)
And after 3 weeks I’m not only feeling a difference im seeing a difference, so much so i got two of my friends also giving it a go, once you’re onto a good thing with a beauty product it’s only fair to share!

So far so good, I will do a mini update when ive been using it around 2 months

Price @ £16.50 it took me a few trips to boots and a few reviews, but i made the right choice!

Pixi by Petra - Natural Brow Duo

Now, I’m lucky to have naturally well defined and a dirty blonde coloured Eyebrows, so they don’t need much maintenance, however, ever the perfectionist, I'm jumping on the ‘Power Brow’ band wagon. 

Enter: Pixi’s Brow Duo – A little bit of brow magic in my handbag

On The Box:

Waterproof brow pencil with angled tip for precise application & tinted soft hold gel that keeps even the most unruly brows in place.

What it does:

It keeps brows in place AND doesn’t run in the rain. WIN

What I Think,
     Taking my first point into consideration, this was purely a quest for vanity
I coloured them in a bit with the angled crayon (I’m going with crayon, because its A LOT softer than a pencil) Creating a perfect corner from the inner then lengthened the outer a bit.

You can roll up the pencil end as required - a major plus for those of us on the move, or those of us who have those Gremlins living in our draws that hide away our sharpeners so Eyeliners, Lip Liners end up forgotten... 

I was happily surprised, and price wise at £12.50 isn’t as ‘break the bank’ as others. Overall happy with this little gem, and seen as my Eyebrows don’t need day to day TLC, i shall save this little gem for when i feel Show stopping brows and killer eye make-up are needed.

I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a simple solution to the Killer Brow look, and doest want to carry an army of products around with them!

Superfacialist - Una Brennan

I am a skin care junkie,

My skin can affected by weather, stress and occasionally a rather heavy social calendar.

So I feel it's important to trust in the brands I use, and also make sure they're right for my fussy skin! I recently bought some Superfacialist products by Una Brennan...

Firstly the Tea Flower deep clean pore purifying clay mask

Goes on smoothly, soft in your hands you can almost feel the goodness on your finger tips, I find that putting a mask on 'evenly' as suggested can be hard, but the consistency of this product helps it go on evenly ,most of all it takes only 5 minutes, making it easy to use for the recommended twice a week.

Skin feels fresher, cleaner and has reduced blemishes. Contains salicylic acid, which is a great blemish buster!

Secondly the Neroli Firming Intense Facial serum!

Smoothing, smells good, leaves skin looking radiant!

Overall both are a winning combination to use together, skins feeling good, and if your skin feels good, you feel good!

Smooch lipstick in Sweet Tooth


A brand I know little about, but cropped up recently, and after having looked at their website and products, I have to say, one of the nicest lipsticks I’ve ever used. I am forever faithful to my MAC lipsticks, but this one has definitely earned its place in my make up bag.

1) Don’t be scared off by the colour of the lipstick, it goes on oh so lightly, it just GLIDES across my lips with such ease, it barely feels like I’m wearing lipstick!

2) The colour is natural, and versatile enough for day and night wear
Purchase here http://www.smoochcosmeticsuk.com/p-40-sweet-tooth.aspx

Reasonable pricing at £7.50 per lipstick and with the tag line Smooch “Cosmetics with Sex appeal” – it doesn’t lie, the lipstick feels moisturising and luxurious, whilst being within a reasonable budget, overall , a lovely purchase and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a little bit of loveliness to pop into their make-up bag
