Although we all might try to eat and drink healthily, it can be hard to make sure you're putting the right things in your body - especially when you've got a busy lifestyle.

Over the past year and a half I've experimented with gel liners from many different brands and along the way I've definitely learned a few tips and tricks which would help any beginner get to grips with gel eyeliner.

Head & Shoulders: Extra Thickening Treatment

My main source of hair-envy definitely stems from a lack of volume in my own hair. I always think that volume gives so much life to a hairstyle, making your hair look healthy, yet glamorous! As someone with permanently flat hair I've tried my fair share of methods to encourage my hair to stop clinging to my scalp, but never with any success. 'Head & Shoulders' recently brought out a leave-in treatment which claims to give visible improvements in volume, so obviously I had to give it a go! Read on to hear about my experience using this over the past few months...

Barry M Beauty Haul

Barry M is one of my favourite nail polish brands, but I'd never actually tried any of their make-up.

Blistex Happy Lips

Blistex are my all-time favourite brand when it comes to lip-care. They're experts at what they do and I've always had great results whenever I use their products. With that being said, I was so excited to see that they've just brought out a new range of lip balms - 'Happy Lips'. We all know that a good lip balm is a staple everyday item and these looked fantastic. I really couldn't resist giving these a try, so I thought I'd tell you a bit more about them!

Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain

When it comes to lip products, "moisture" and "stain" are two words you wouldn't think to find together. I am a huge fan of lip stains, but they can be so drying - they always require a balm or a gloss to keep you comfortable. Revlon came up with a product that is supposed to be a moisturising stain - so I was keen to give it a try. Read on to hear my thoughts about it!

BlanX Teeth Whitening Toothpastes

As a typical Brit, who drinks far too many cups of tea each day, I'm always paranoid about staining my teeth. Bright, white teeth are so fashionable - you can't turn on the TV or open a magazine without admiring someones sparkling smile - but I've always been scared of the different whitening treatments that I've come across in terms of how harmful they might be to my teeth. A lot of teeth whiteners work by stripping the outer surfaces of your teeth (basically removing part of the stained enamel) which can leave your teeth really vulnerable to sensitivity. For this reason, I was so excited when I found a non-abrasive range of teeth-whitening toothpastes from Blanx! I've been using these products for a couple of months now, so I wanted to let you know how I've been getting on and what I think of this range! Read on to find out more...

Rimmel Lasting Finish Colour Rush Lip Crayons

Rimmel is definitely one of my favourite drugstore make-up brands - especially when it comes to lip products. I'm a massive fans of the Kate Moss lipsticks, the Apocalips laquers, Provacalips etc... and the Colour Rush crayons are now joining the club. They're my go-to lip product at the moment - and for good reason! Read on to hear my thoughts on my four favourite shades...

Blistex Relief Cream

I'm sure I'm not the only one who has experienced lips that are so dry or chapped that even layers of lip balm doesn't seem to help. It's usually at this point that my lips will crack and it's so painful. For a while, I've been looking for a product that would effectively soothe my lips in these situations and also actively make them better! I've been trying the Blistex Relief Cream, previously called Blisteze, and it's been so useful for me that I thought I'd share my experiences in case any of you need a remedy for cracked and sore lips or even cold sores.

MUA Makeup Haul

MUA has always held a special place in my heart because it was one of the brands that I bought from when I first started using make-up. As a teenager without much money to spend, I used to be obsessed with their £1 range. I've grown a lot since then and tried so many different brands, but I still always return to MUA when I want some affordable goodies! 

I recently treated myself to a few bits and pieces, so wanted to share them with you. Read on to see what I bought!
