💚 Leopard Luxe 💚 • Good Morning my loves! I've finally got a new look for you and it's a very affordable one too! Meet @primark.beauty Leopard Luxe. Nine pigmented shades: five mattes and four shimmers. The colour story is beautiful if you ask me and they come in a golden plastic palette which gives me all the luxurious feels and reminds me of Tarte. • The matte shades are buttery and blend like a dream. The shimmers are almost creamy and so lovely to work with. I can see this little beauty becoming my favourite this Autumn and let's be honest, how wrong can we go for only £4?! Thank you for introducing me to it @lipstickn_leopardprint! • Swipe for swatches! • What do you guys think? Have a great day!
Last Thursday I was invited to the launch of the new @skinacademy_ ZERO range. Skin Academy is a reasonably new brand that was created in late 2017 with the mission to offer luxury skincare at an affordable price point. Their new ZERO range offers high quality, 100% natural, vegan friendly facial and body care in sustainable packaging. 🌱 ZERO Synthetic Preservatives 🌱 ZERO Artificial Ingredients 🌱 ZERO Artificial Fragrance 🌱 ZERO Parabens 🌱 ZERO SLES / SLS ZERO currently consists of 6 products: Face Wash, Face Scrub, Hand & Nail Cream, Day Cream, Night Cream and Eye Cream. And price points will vary from £9.99 - £12.99. The tubes are made of 'bioplastic', or Green Polyethylene which is made from sustainably sourced sugarcane ethanol. The jars are made of glass with bamboo lids and threat inserts made of recycled plastic. Will the range live up to its promise to offer high quality skincare at an affordable price? Make sure to keep an eye on here because I will let you know once I've had a chance to try the range. It's definitely a bold statement! To be continued.. Thank you @skinacademy_ for inviting me to the amazing launch event. It was so well organised and the room looked stunning 💚
° A little something for the men.. ° Because sometimes you just have to share something that isn't about us women 😆 Anyway, happy Friday my pumpkins! I hope you're having great plans for the weekend, make sure you tell me all about them! 😘 Today on the grid is this @super.facialist exfoliator for men. The face scrub contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), hydrating Cactus Water and Acai which acts as an antioxidant, and uses Icelandic Volcanic Sand as a gentle exfoliator to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities. I won this in a giveaway and gave it to my husband and I am so impressed by the results. His skin feels so soft, looks healthy and plump and I can see that his pores are visibly reduced with no more blackheads! 🙌 Hubby says he does not have to scrub hard at all, the scrub has a lovely scent and it does not irritate the skin at all. At the price point of £9, I think that's quite impressive. Don't you agree? You can find it at @bootsuk @sainsburys
[PR gifted] There's a new cleanser in town.. well added to my stash! 😁 The K-beauty @itsskin_official_uk Tiger Cica Calming Cleanser, a foam cleanser that is perfect for sensitive skin and calming down redness. • This gentle cleanser contains 55% Centella Asiatica Extract (first ingredient in the ingredients list, even before water!), also known as 'cica' or 'tiger grass', which is low-acidic, lathers to a foam and helps remove any impurities whilst soothing the skin as it works as an anti-inflammatory. • It's been a while since I've used a foam cleanser but this one has really helped with my redness and has been so soothing on warmer days when my skin feels itchy or irritated. My skin feels calm and clean after using it, without any tightness. You can use this as the first step in your skincare routine as it does remove makeup, however I prefer getting rid of my makeup with an oil cleanser or cleansing balm and follow up with the Tiger Cica Calming Cleanser as my second cleanse. • You can find this cleanser at @beautybaycom @feelunique @asos_faceandbody
So, hello..remember me? 😆 I look away for a second and all of a sudden it's been a week since I last posted! Does anyone else feel like the days are flying by because of life with children? I can't believe it's September and Autumn! • Aaanywho, enough babbling from me. Let's talk beauty. I've booked a little holiday and I can't wait to take this set with me! I've been using the @maroccanoil_uk Oily Scalp Treatment for a while which has really helped keeping my hair fresh. This little trio is designed for coloured hair and consists of a shampoo, conditioner and the Protect and Prevent spray. • The set is meant to repair the hair using COLORLINK technology, gently cleanse the hair without drying it out and restore the hair so it can retain the colour better. It should also provide protection from UV, pollution and other factors that would make hair go brassy. • I've coloured my hair for as long as I can remember so this set is right up my street! 🙌 Have you tried it? Can't wait to start using it. I will feed back to you after my holiday in Insta stories. Hope you all had a great Tuesday! *Set won in giveaway
🧽 Give Me Bubble Mask - Swipe for a video of my experience! 🧽 • Who doesn't love bubbles? Have you ever tried a bubble face mask? For me it was a first when I tried this @giveme.cosmetics Bubble Mask and it felt weird, but in a good way. •• This mask is a budget one, with them being available at two for £10 on the Give Me Cosmetics website. It's a cruelty free mud mask that claims to be deep cleansing, detoxing and exfoliating and contributes to pore and oil control. It contains a variety of ingredients with some natural and decent ones in there such as natural mud, aloe vera juice and charcoal powder, but it also contains SLS and perfume so if those are too stripping for you, this mask is probably not for you. •• Once applied, the bubbles start to form almost instantly. They add a bit of fun to this mask, but whether they actually draw out any toxins or dirt, I'm not sure. That being said, my skin did feel refreshed and clean afterwards and not stripped at all. Overall a nice, fun experience, just don't expect any miracles 🤷 *Gifted • Let me know if you've tried any bubble masks!

[Gifted] Let's talk SPF. By now, I'm guessing most of you know that you should always wear SPF, even when it's cloudy or during the winter months. The damage UV can do to your skin is real, so better to be safe than sorry right? 🤷 Now I'm always on the lookout for a great face SPF. One that is not too greasy or heavy, yet provides good protection. Recently I've started using the @arkskincare Skin Protector SPF30 Primer, a moisturiser that offers UV protection and doubles as a makeup primer! It contains Vitamin E which is an antioxidant and provides protection, shea butter which nourishes and protects from free radicals, and sunflower which gives a nice boost of vitamins and minerals. It's also vegan friendly and cruelty free. As this SPF has won a number of awards, I really wanted to love this product but sadly I'm finding it too heavy for me because of the shea butter. It's on the greasy side and does take a while to sink in. That being said, shea butter is one of those ingredients that skin has to get used to and if you've got dry skin rather than my combination, this might be the one for you. What's your go-to SPF?
Happy Hump Day lovelies! •• Meet my @pixibeautyuk retinol family - they're pretty amazing really! I've been using them for a couple of months now and wanted to share some thoughts with you. • 💜 Retinol Tonic* - This is the perfect product if you're new to using Retinol because it's super light, and with Retinol about halfway through the ingredients list, it's not too strong. I've been using this tonic after cleansing, every other day and it leaves my skin feeling refreshed. •• 💜 Overnight Retinol Oil - This almond oil based oil is definitely stronger and should only be used in the evening. Retinol can be found in the second ingredient on the list which is Retinyl Palmitate, and as Retinol at about a third of the ingredients list. I've been using this after serum, before moisturising every other day and I love how this has reduced my fine lines and visibility of my pores. •• 💜 Retinol Jasmine Lotion - This is a lovely refreshing moisturiser. I love the scent and because it is so gentle, it can be used in the morning and evening. It smoothes and renews the skin, while deeply moisturising it. •• 💜 Retinol Eye Cream - Now this has become one of my favourites. It does everything I look for in an eye cream. It contains retinol and caffeine for that extra boost of energy which I like. It reduces fine lines, improves elasticity, reduces puffiness and firms the skin. You can apply it AM and PM. •• I'm so impressed by the new Retinol range. My skin has really improved and I have not had any side effects other than a little bit of dryness around the eyes. • What's your favourite Retinol product? * The Retinol Tonic was kindly gifted to me. All other products were purchased by myself, however I do receive PR from Pixi Beauty.
