Limited Edition Batiste: Ella Henderson

When it comes to dry shampoo I always come back to Batiste. For me, they're tried and tested and I've yet to find another brand that makes dry shampoo that is as effective and as great smelling as them. After a stressful, exam-filled term at uni I needed to get myself a new can and was so excited to see a new limited edition scent in collaboration with Ella Henderson had just launched. I've honestly never found a Batiste scent that I didn't like, but I have to say that the scent of this Ella Henderson edition could possibly be by most favourite.

Arbonne Skincare: First Impressions

Arbonne is a brand that I never really knew much about, but recently my good friend Danielle began partnering with them and gave me the opportunity to try some samples of a few of their skincare ranges. The ranges correspond to particular skin types, which give you the means to make your skincare routine more suitable and personalised to you. As a skincare junkie I couldn't wait to give them all a try and you can read below to see some brief reviews of everything I've sampled. If you're interested in looking at the products on offer you can have a look at Danielle's Arbonne site: here

Girls Night In with Freeman Face Masks

Having just finished my exams, I felt I was in desperate need of a relaxing night in with the girls. We cracked open the bubbly, got plenty of snacks and decided we all deserved a pampering session. Our evening consisted of facial massages, foot spas, manicures and, most excitingly, a trial of some new face masks I'd recently discovered from Freeman Beauty, Their 'Feeling Beautiful' skincare range has an extensive collection of different scented masks that give your skin the TLC it deserves, whilst also providing you with a relaxing experience. Read on to hear all about the different masks we tried and our thoughts on them...

Joan Collins: Lash Growth Treatment

Like so many of us, I pile on the mascara to darken and lengthen my lashes, but I always envy those lucky people who have naturally long eyelashes. As a teenager, I tried countless 'tips and tricks' that claimed to boost your lash growth to no avail and eventually came to terms with the fact that I'd always need a helping hand from mascara or falsies to get those luscious, long lashes. However, the Joan Collins beauty range, 'Timeless Beauty', includes a lash growth treatment which claims to give visible results in 30 days of use. Could I have finally found a solution? Read on to hear all about my experience with this product and my thoughts...

Nailbox Unboxing: May 2015

May 2015 gives us the second ever 'nailbox' - a subscription service based exclusively on your nails. The cost is £15 a month (including delivery), but the service costs less if you choose an up-front subscription e.g. it only costs £13.50 a month if you choose a years subscription. In each box you'll receive 5 products which will be made up of 3/4 nail polishes and 1/2 nail tools or treatments - plus, you'll never receive the same item twice. In terms of value, I think this subscription is a great deal. At the most expensive price, you're looking at £3 a product and the items individually cost far more than that! 

I absolutely loved the April box (see my review: here) and the May box is just as good... if not better! Read on to see what the box contains and plenty of swatches! 

I also have a video of this unboxing which you can find on youtube: here.

Exuviance: 'Matte Perfection Primer' and 'Age Less Everyday Moisturiser'

A huge trend at the moment is the "no make-up" look and whilst it's great to embrace the natural look, it definitely puts more of an emphasis on having healthy, clear skin. To try and achieve the oh-so-desired glowing skin look, I've been trying out two new products in my skincare and make-up routine from 'Exuviance'. They're my favourite kind of product in that they have a multitude of uses and this is the result of the clever combination of ingredients.
