Lux Bath & Shower set

Hello friends how are you all? Hope you're all well. Today I want to share a post with you that I was supposed to put up ages ago but totally forgot! Silly me 😄 It's about Lux Bath & Shower set that was gifted to me.

The Brand Lux has been around for a long long time. They make bath & body products like Soaps, Bubble baths, Shower gels, Shower Cremes & handwashes. I was gifted this bath & shower set from a friend. It's called "Oils of the Orient." It's a luxury formula with essential oils. The packaging is of a goldish-orange cardboard box that contains 1 shower creme & 1 bath creme and a matching puff sponge.

It smells alright of oriental oils. Nice rich creamy formula feels soft & leaves skin smooth & moisturised. It's suitable for all skin types, so anyone can use it 😊 The puff is gentle to use all over the body, helping to buff away all the dead skin cells, revealing healthy glowing skin 💞
It's lightly scented so doesn't irritate skin. It makes my skin feel soft & glowing.
I really like my gift. I like using it when I
 i feel like pampering myself 😙

I'm not sure where the gift is is from, but i will look online to see what other fragrances are available 😄😊💞

So guys that is my review on my Lux bath & shower gift set. Do you own this or used anything similar? What is your views on it? Leave your comments below! 😊

O'll be back again shortly with another post soon. Until next time,

Massive Makeup Haul / Comeback

Hi friends, how are you all? Hope you are all well 😊 Firstly I apologise for missing in action! Yes, it has been a very long time since i last posted on here. I kind of took a break, but to be honest, I have been very busy behind the scenes, as I had a lot going on in my life, and that is the reason I have been inactive on here. 😥
But now i'm back & hope to carry on blogging for you guys. 😙
Today I want to share a major make up haul with you all. I am super excited as there is a huge selection and will be posting my major hauls in a couple of parts as there is sooo much to share with you all! 😄
Okay, so let's start!

In the world of make up there are so many brands emerging almost every single day! The latest trends become fads for fashion conscious people. And with so much actually happening, we're bound to give some or most of them a try at least! 😄 Well currently I am obsessed with a beauty website called ' Beauty Bay '. Oh my goodness, where do I start?! I have become a real hooker on Beauty Bay, that I am ending up buying something or another at least every month or so! It's like i'm addicted, and with prices so good, one cannot help but shop here! 😂 There are so many beauty online websites, like Feel Unique, Just my Look, Hunt or Dye, Glossybox etc, etc, all offering deals & bargains to make us feel beautiful. Beauty Bay is a fabulous website, with reasonable prices & tempting offers, I end up giving in to my whims & just have the need to satisfy myself. And what better way to do that other than with Makeup! 💄💅💋
Anyways back to the point. I made a recent purchase with Beauty Bay (3 days ago to be precise) where they had an offer going on. The offer was to spend £50+ to recieve 20% discount. Spend £80+ to recieve 25% discount and 30% discount off of purchases over £120.
As I am still new to discovering these famous name brands, I managed to make a purchase of £50 to recieve the 20% discount which was applied to my total in the checkout. So I had a discount of £10 which then made my total come to £40. I got a selection of items as some brands i had tested already before & some i was going to be discovering now. So all in all I got a total of 9 items for £40 which isn't too bad, considering if I had bought them at original price then i'm sure my total would've hit about £80 or something lol 😄
So when i finally recieved my parcel, I was super excited to open it & check out my purchase!
So as I said before that I got 9 items, here is a list of all the items that I got:


♤ BH Cosmetics Blending Brush £3
♤ Morphe Brushes Pencil Crease Brush £5
♤ Milani Cosmetics Cream to Powder Make up compact in shade# Warm Beige £10
♤ L.A Girl Pro HD Concealer in shade# Medium Beige £5
♤ OPV Liquid Matte Lipstick in shade# Sunburst £8
♤ L.A Girl Glazed Lip Paint in shade# Whisper £4
♤ L.A Girl Perfecting Liquid Make up foundation in shade# Toasted Almond £4
♤ Milani Amore Matte Lip cream in shade# Stunning £10
♤ L.A Girl Endless Automatic Lip Pencil in shade# Berries £3
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
♤ Also in the photo is a lipstick from Medora company in the shade# Twig that I bought seperately on Ebay for £2.99
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Medora Lipstick 

The Medora lipstick was not part of my Beauty bay haul, I bought this seperately from Ebay. A lot of people were talking about Medora lipstick and how good it is etc. So I thought i'd get one & see for myself what the hype is all about. This arrived the same day through the post as my beauty bay parcel, that is why I also included it as part of my haul. Medora lipstick brand comes from Pakistan. It's kind of getting well known here in england aswell, & there seems to be quite a rave going on about these lipsticks. I was eager to test it out & it's not too bad actually! 😆 It says on the box it's supposed to be matte. But it feels like a creamy formula but has the matte look finish. The color is a nude-ish shade. It looks alright on it's own but I like it with a brown lip liner. Makes it look more better to me 👍 A nice creamy formula, glides on smoothly & is moisturising. So not too bad for a lipstick brand i've never heard of! 😄

Ok so back to my haul....
I am very pleased with my selection of items that I got. Some things which i need & the rest I already have too much of, lol 😝 The milani cream-to-powder has become a new favourite of mines. I was unsure of my color, so i guessed what I thought would be closest to my skin shade. And it seems to be a perfect match! The creamy formula applies like a dream & the finish is very nice. The compact is a pretty gold color casing with a handy mirror & comes with a sponge applicator. It also has a light fragrance which is very appealing to me. I'm in love with this compact & would like to order another 1 when i'm done with this! 😉
The L.A girl lipliner is a pretty color. It applies nice & neatly. Very pigmented & best thing is it doesn't need sharpening! So i'm ready to go without worrying that it will get blunt any time soon! 😜
The BH cosmetics blending brush was necessary. I have all other brushes but this brush was missing from my collection. It's a great blending brush with soft bristles & does the job well. It also has a fine price tag of £3 so very affordable too! 😊
Another brush I got was the Morphe brushes pencil brush. This brush is most ideal for the crease area. This brush is an essential tool to join my brush collection, so this was a must-buy for me!




OPV matte liquid lipstick was something I was curious to try. On Instagram, my friends showed their swatches of these liquid lipsticks. The shades are gorgeous, & when I saw Beauty bay had them, I had to snap one up! It's so pigmented & easy wearing formula is very comfortable to wear. So this was a good purchase too! 👍
L.A Girl's pro hd concealer is a known to me product as I have purchased these before. Because my old one is almost finishing, so I thought i'd be needing 1 soon and so I got this.
The L.A Girl Glazed lip paint is something I do not previously own. The shades are very nice & the photos of the products itself looked good. At £4 trying it would be no harm lol 😄 The shade I got is a light color almost like a bright creamy nude. Again this would look nice with a brown lip liner as to on it's own, as it seems pale on my lips.

The L.A. Girl Perfecting liquid Make up foundation is quite good. It's a sheer foundation that gives light dewy coverage. Wasnt sure about my shade so i guessed and got it in Toasted Almond. It doesn't look too bad as i'm quite dark myself and it being a sheer foundation so works well with my skin tone 😊
And lastly the Milani Amore matte lip cream. I bought one of these previously before so I only just wanted to get another shade. I opted for the shade Stunning as it looked nice on the photo. I was hoping it would be like a nice browny-reddish nude like how it looked like in the picture, but it was more of a nude'ish brown. But nonetheless that a lipliner can't fix! 😄 But yes I do like the color as I seem to be into nude shades quite a lot these days! 😍



And so that is the end of my purchase. I always look forward to and enjoy my purchases with Beauty Bay! They are a great website to shop with. I will leave a link below so you all can check out this fantastic website! 😙
Do you own any of these products? Or are thinking of getting them? Read my blog to get a insight on my reviews of these great products! 👍

Color Pop Haul

Hello dear friends how are you all? Hope you all ok. Sorry i have been m.i.a.... havn't been too well and lots of other things have popped up here & there! 😦 But im back now, so let me get started!
Okay, so today's post is about Color pop cosmetics.
I got my first ever color pop haul about 2 weeks ago. I ordered it directly from the color pop website. They had some great packages going. And because i've never bought anything from them before, so i didn't know what products are good, or how they actually come out after application. So I just thought i'l give it a go 😊
Looking at the products on the website, i didnt quite know how the true colors are of their liquid lipsticks, so i googled images of the swatches to see how they look, and then came the decision of the colors that i wanted.
I chose a mixed selection of products, so it doesn't look like i just got the same thing.
I got 2 different kinds of lip kits. 1 single liquid lipstick and 3 single eyeshadows.


Products:

1: Liquid lipstick in shade: Kapaow
2: 5 pack mini liquid lipsticks set. Shades include:
•Tulle   •Notion   • Love bug    • Bianca & • Lax

3: Get a Grip lip kit. Shades include:
• Ultra matte Liquid lipstick in the color Are N Be.
• Party foul Lippie stix.
• Lip pencil in Are N Be.

4: Super shock eyeshadow in shade Coconut.
5:Super shock eyesjadow in shade Lace.
6: Super shock eyeshadow in shade Central perk.




The box in which my order came in is omg soo pretty!! 😍 It's such a colorful box with an awesome design, was staring at the box for a good half an hour! 😄

The colors of the eyeshadows are very pigmented and feel gel-like. They are long lasting and easily blendable. Available in over 30 shades, and in matte & glitter varieties.

The ultra matte liquid lipsticks are very nice & comfortable. There's a huge selection of colors available, so your not short of a choice.

The color pop website says free shipping over 30$ dollars for domestic orders. And over 50$ dollars for international orders. The total for my order was $53 dollar, as i was ordering internationally. But the only drawback was that I had to pay customs fee 😠😡 So wasn't really happy about that.

But otherwise all else was ok. So that was like my first ever Color pop haul, and was super excited to recieve it! 😊😊





And so this is the end of my post. Hope you liked it. Do you have any of these? What is your favourite color? How many do you own? 😄

Leave your comments below. Until next time, take care & stay beautiful! 😗💖 xXxXx

Tea Bags

Hello dear friends, how are you all? Hope you are well! Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. I was not feeling too well and had no energy! 😥 But im back now so let me get started! 

Today I want to share an interesting post with you. Who doesn't love a cuppa? Tea is very refreshing for the soul. It energises and gives strength, fighting off fatigue! ☕ There are so many varieties of tea available these days that can both be enjoyed with or without milk! 
But besides drinking Tea, there are some beauty uses too, that I will share with you now. 

Uses of Teabags for Beauty.

1: Eye Mask.
Used tea bags can be used to de-puff eye bags & refresh tired looking eyes. Just chill 2 used bags in the fridge for 10 minutes, then take it out & pop it on closed eyelids. Relax for 10-15 mins. And your eyes will feel cool & fresh! 👍

2: Scrub.
Used teabags are an excellent scrub! The teas contain Antioxidants that are beneficial to skin, so use in abundance.
Here is a quick scrub method:
1-2 used teabags opened up and emptied into a bowl. 1 tbsp oilve oil. 1 tbsp honey. Mix together in a bowl and apply to face or body. Use scrubbing motions and leave on for a minute or two. Then wash off. You will feel rejuvanated! 😍

3: Face mask.
Used teabags also double up as a face mask. Here's how to:
1 to 2 used teabags. Place the contents of the teabag into a small bowl. 3-4 drops of lemon essential oil. 2 tsp Honey. And 1 tsp of rosewater. Mix all the ingredients in the bowl thoroughly. And apply this mixture on your face except the eye area for 10-15 mins and relax. Then wash off with warm water. You will have a glowing complexion and this face mask will do wonders on your skin! 👍

4: Greasy Hair.
Greasy hair a problem for you? Not anymore! Boil 2-3 teabags in a pan. Add 2 tbsp lemon juice & about 5 drops of mint essential oil or tea tree oil. And add a squirt of your conditioner into the mix. Boil for round about 5 mins then let cool down. After shampooing your hair, run the tea mixture through your hair. Rinse thoroughly. Then let your hair dry naturally. You will feel your hair is beautifully soft and conditioned without weighing down or residue.

5: Tea bath.
Feeling tired and exhausted? Try a tea bath! Next time you have a soak in the bath, pop a few herbal tea bags into your bath for a soothing bath soak! Flavoured teabags like mint or chamomile will gently scent the bath water and help ease tense aching muscles aswell as relax your mind. Try it! 😊

You can also use the teabag scrub to gently exfoliate your dry lips aswell. For the lips, add 2-3 drops of mint oil and half a tsp of sugar to the mix. Then you will have soft kissable lips!





So those were a few beauty tips you can try with tea bags. They're more than a refreshing drink! ☕
Give them ago. You will never look at tea bags the same way again! 😜

So friends this is the end of my post. Hope you enjoyed reading it & will consider trying my beauty tips. Let me know how you get along.

Until next time, take care & stay beautiful! 😊😙❤👍 xXx

What's in my Bag?

Hello dear readers, how are you all? Hope you are all well 😊 The weather here in the UK has not been too good lately. The days seem to be very dull and dark, and now seems so foggy. Driving is quite difficult, so need to be very careful. Anyways, apart from that, not much can be done, as it is winter after all 😝
Okay! now back to the point. Today I want to blog about something different. I usually always blog about make up etc, so today's post will be something new for me.

Today I decided to do a what's in my bag post. So basically i will be going through the contents of my bag that I am using at the moment & tell you what it is & why it's important for me 😊



So here is a pic of my handbag. I recently purchased this bag from TK Maxx. Well not exactly recently, i bought it back in August last year (2016) It's a designer handbag from Dune priced at £49.99. It's a crocodile skin effect black color that I bought for my nieces wedding. Havn't really used it much, but will be using it now as my other handbag is gone old.
Another pic shows the contents of my bag that i currently have in there. So will be going through them with you 😊


Ok, so first up, (this is in random order)
• handgel • perfume • charger • headphones

I always carry a handgel with me no matter what. Im a clean person. Catching germs & bugs is a nasty business. So carrying a little protection will keep you safe 😊
Sometimes I carry my phone charger around. The days when I know i will be out and about for a long time or will be doing heavy usage on my mobile, I carry it around with me so i can charge up when i'm low on battery. But otherwise my phone is strong enough to last me all day on moderate use 👍
Perfume, I always carry as i need it to freshen up as i go. Don't want to be caught up smelly lol 😄
And headphones are a must! When you want to listen to some music privately, or catch up on social media without disturbing others. Or if you simply don't want folk listening to your private convo's, Lol 😉


• vaseline tin • folding carrier bag • umbrella • hand cream

Umbrella is for when i'm out & about and use in emergency. Otherwise i'm usually always in my car, so don't have a chance to get caught out in the rain! ☔
The vaseline tin is a must! It's so handy for on the go uses. Essential for when you need to moisturise your skin, and my children use it to apply on their dry skin & lips 👄
I always carry a folding carrier bag with me. It's useful to carry things like shopping in, & with the 5p government carrier bag charge, people seem conscious to recycle their bags whenever they can. Plus most folding carrier bags are made from fabric, so it's more lightweight & portable. Better than the plastic carrier bag which often rips on the way before you can even come home with your shopping! 😂
And hand cream is also an essential item to have in my bag. My hands are always feeling dry, and i constantly have the need to moisturise my hands, so this is an important item for my handbag.


•lipstick/lipgloss •wet wipes •tissue packet •powder compact

Lipsticks & lipglosses are the uppermost important items in my bag! 😂 My handbag would be very empty without them lol!
Powder compact for touch-ups on the go. Tissues are extremely important too lol. Don't want to be stuck anywhere awkward without them 😉 And the same applies to wet wipes aswell. They're very handy for on the go, and to instantly freshen up anywhere anytime! 😊


•purse • hair brush

My purse is very important! How else will I do my shopping then? 😄
Also contains all my store cards to buy goodies with & my driving license! 🚘
Hair brush because incase I mite want to tidy my hair or change hairstyles lol 😉



•pens • sweets/candy •keys

Sweets and candy are the one thing you will always see in my bag no matter what! My kids and nieces & nephews are always raiding my handbag, because they know that sweets and candy of any sort will definately be found in my bag! 😂
I always carry a pen or two with me. Handy when you need to write something or lend a pen to someone. But because most likely you wont get your pen back, at least you have a spare one! 😂
And lastly but most importantly my keys! My keys are the thing I worry most about in my bag. On my keyring it has my home keys, and my car key. Wouldn't want to be stuck anywhere without it! 😣

So guys that was my 'what's in my bag?' Post for you. Luckily i'm a clean person that's why you wont find any old reciepts, crumbs or yucky stuff in my bag! The thought of it just makes me cringe! 😷

Well guys, I hope you liked reading my post. Are you a junkie who loads lots of things in your bag with things whether you need it or not? Or a tidy person who needs essential but minimal things?
Start the debate below! 👍

Well friends thats all for today. I will be back soon with something new and different hopefully! 💃

So until next time, take care & stay beautiful! 😙💖 xXxXx

Milani Cosmetics

Hello there peeps! I'm back again! 😄 hope you are doing well. I really love to blog for you all, but other commitments keep me away... 😢 lol. But i will try to make more effort in what i love doing best, and that is... Blogging! 😉

So friends, today my post is about Milani Cosmetics. Last week I ordered some make up from Beauty Bay. I will leave a link below so you guys can check out this awesome website! 👍

Beauty Bay is a one stop health & beauty website that has products from so many famous brands! Some that you may be familiar with & others you will be keen to know. So I have recently kind of bombarded my make up stash with Gerard Cosmetics. I have a huge huge collection of their make up, honestly! But this time, i thought i would give Milani cosmetics a try.
I ordered the much raved about Conceal & Perfect 2 in 1 foundation and the Amore matte lip cream. The Conceal & perfect foundation is just WOW! 😍


The purpose of the foundation is a concealer & foundation in 1 product. The product comes in a glass bottle with 30ml foundation. It has a pump so that is very good. The foundation claims to have medium to full coverage, is waterproof & sweat resistant aswell as feel lightweight on the skin. I got it in the shade 05 Warm Beige, as it looked quite close to my skin shade. Because I have never used this brand before, so i kept looking at reviews and images of how i think it will match my skin tone. It was a tough decision lol, but finally got there in the end! 😄

The other product I got was their Amore matte lip cream in the shade #20 Sugar. The lip cream like a matte formula of liquid lipstick. The shade is very beautiful, but just a tad too dark! I didn't expect it to be that dark, but it's more of a vampish maroon color, but nonetheless a gorgeous color 👌



The Foundation? What can I say about it? It's a very comfortable long lasting foundation that effortlessly hides imperfections and evens out skin tone. Even though it's a bit on the thick side of formulation, the foundation is non sticky and blends extremely well. The coverage is buildable so it can be customised to your skin color, without feeling thick or heavy.
When i tried this for the 1st time, it immediately reminded me of Clinique's beyond perfecting 2 in 1 foundation. It almost feels the same I would say. Just the brand name differentiates it. Another thing is the price. Whereas Clinique foundations are priced in excess of £20+ Milani however is nothing within that region!
So I am very impressed with Milani's foundation. I use it almost everyday now, as it makes me feel confident and even toned 😙

As for the lip cream, it's the only kind of lipstick that's being worn these days! Maybe because i got such a dark shade that is why application looked a bit messy. But otherwise good staying power. Did feel a little dry after a while, and removal of the lip cream was a bit of a task. I would recommend using an oil based or creamy make up remover to take the lip cream off 👍 but otherwise it's not too bad as i've never tried the brand before so didn't know what to expect.

But overall Milani is a good brand. There are loads more shades in the liquid lipstick & lip creams range. So check out the other colors too! 👌


●Milani Conceal & perfect 2 in 1 foundation & concealer. Shade: 05 warm beige. 30ml. £11.00

●Milani Amore matte lip cream. Shade: #20 Sugar. 6g. £8.00




So dear friends, I hope you all enjoyed my review on Milani cosmetics. I will be leaving a link to Beauty Bay below, so don't forget to check them out! 😊

Signing off for now. Until next time, take care & stay beautiful! 😙✌ xXx

Neutrogena Hydro Boost facewash & cream review

Hello dear readers, how are you all? Hope you are well. The weather here in the UK is topsy turvy! It seem's to be raining, then sunny, then mild and cold all rolled in one! 😄
Today i'm back with a new blogpost. I will be sharing my reviews with you on 2 products that i've been using for a month now and have been enjoying the experience of it 😊


I bought Neutrogena's Hydro boost face wash & gel cream from Boots. These are a new range from Neutrogena. I have used Neutrogena products before but this is a totally new innovation 😍
 The idea of hydro boost is to boost the skin with water as a main hydration factor. These products are especially formulated with Hyaluronic Gel to help keep the skin soft and plump.
The gel cream is a lightweight gel like cream that feels deeply hydrating on the skin. Absorbs easily without feeling greasy or sticky. It has a soothing effect on the skin and feels as though your face has been drenched in a rich watery mask.
It is most suitable for dry skin types. A mild yet richly nourishing formula that keeps your skin feel moisturised & refreshed all day long without feeling dry or tight. Because i have dry & sensitive skin, this is a relief product for me, that keeps my skin looking great all day long! 😍


The other product i got was the hydro boost face wash. This face wash is also amazing. With caring ingredients, this face wash also hydrates the skin without feeling dry. It's like a surge of moisture to pep up the hydration levels within the skin's epidermal layers, ensuring that a good level of moisture is maintained to help keep our skin looking vibrant and fresh.
The facewash feels cool & soothing on my face without drying it out 👌
Because i have been using these 2 products for about a month now, i have noticed my skin doesn't feel that dry anymore. Unlike in winter, my face used to feel dry & patchy, but after using these, i feel as though my face is replenished and comfortable. I would definately recommend these products to anyone who suffers from dry & sensitive skin. These products are worth it! 💖

My overall rating  for the use and experience of Neutrogena's Hydro boost range is:
5/5
I really like the quality and performance of these products. My skin has benefitted from using them so i know that these were worth the money i spent on it! 👍😊

Boots have a great deal going on now on the Hydro Boost range. Check out the Boots website. I will leave a link below 😉 so don't miss out on these great offers.



So my lovlies, I hope you all enjoyed reading my post 😊 I will be back again soon with another post, so keep an eye out.

Until next time, Take care & stay beautiful! 😙💖 xXxXx
