Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a lovely Tuesday so far. For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my April Favourites post.

CARINO 'SENSATIONS' COLOUR SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER 

My first favourite for the month of April is this Carino 'Sensations' Colour Hair Shampoo and Conditioner. I am forever changing Shampoo's/Conditioner's as i'm never happy with the quality of the product as i am alway's buying more expensive products. So on a recent trip to Aldi's i picked up this Carion 'Sensations' Shampoo and Conditioner to try out. Both these products remind me of the Herbel and Essence range as it leaves my hair smelling gorgeous.

I have been using this for around three weeks now and my hair is feeling a lot softer and smells amazing. It works with every strand of hair and leaves it feeling not only soft but looking a lot more healthier. And with it only been €1.49 each even the price is making me smile :-)

Price: €1.49 each

TRUE ORGANIC OF SWEDEN 'ALL YOU NEED IS ME' BALM

Next up is this 'All you need is me' Balm from True Organic of Sweden. I received this in January's Glossybox and i have only recently started using it now. With it been a multi-purpose balm. 
I love using this on the really dry areas of my body such as my elbows, knees and heels, i even love to apply a small amount on my lips just before i apply my favourite lipstick. I also use on my cuticles too as this makes them a lot softer. Altogether i love using this balm as it really is a multi-tasker when it comes to dry skin. Since using it the dryer areas of my skin feels a lot more softer.

P.S CUCUMBER EYE PADS 
My third favourite for the month of April is these Cucumber Eye Pads from Penney's. I love using this during my pamper routine as they reduce any dark circles with the cleansing and toning Cucumber Eye Pads.
Each pad has a natural blend of mulberry, liquorice and green tea to revive and brighten skin around the eyes. They also make the under eyes feel a lot more fresher especially after a hard working day where the eyes become tired and dry.

UTAN & TONE NOURISHING NIGHT CREME

Next up is this Utan & Tone Nourishing Night Creme which has a built in gradual tan which adds a gorgeous glow to your face. I have recently started using this cream at night to help build a gradual tan on my skin. As we are now in Summer its the perfect time to add a little glow to the skin, especially on the face as this is an area of body i don't let the sun get at.
This clever concoction combines all you need for a night cream such as its thick hydrating hyaluronic acid, a cocktail of Vitamins and a potent Anti-oxidants to help skin repair along with its golden colour that you would expect from a gradual tan. I love using this before going to bed and awakening with a glowing effect on my skin each morning.

I'm a huge lover of moisturisers as i love to use them on my skin as soon as i get out of the shower or bath. It immediately moisturises the skin in seconds. The moisturiser itself is a combination of cocoa extract, aloe vera and argan oil which leaves my skin feeling incredible soft and very smooth, plus it also leaves it smelling gorgeous to.

Price: €2.99

OOLUTION 'EYE LOVE' EYE CONTOUR

My last favourite for the month of April is this Eye Contour from Oolution. I love using this underneath my eyes especially when they are feeling tiered and dry. It simply makes my eyes feeling fresher and look a lot brighter. 
It also reduces dark circles and any puffiness under my eye too .ie bags!! Even with its stimulating collagen synthesis, it reduces wrinkles that start forming first around the eyes. Also with its moisturising and lifting actions it prevents the transformation of lines due to dehydration into more profound wrinkles. I love to use this product first thing in the morning and then again when going to bed.

REVIEW: SILICONE SPONGES!!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Thursday to you all, i hope you are all having a lovely day so far. 

For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my review on the Silicone Sponges i picked up in Penney's (Primark) a few weeks back.

Silicone Sponges are the new beauty craze with them been the perfect make-up tool to apply your foundation/concealer with. The Silicone Sponges are made up of silicone which allow you to blend your foundation or concealer a lot more easier.
The Silicone Sponges are also ideal for using on the skin which give full coverage and a leave flawless finish to your face after applying your favourite foundation.

Personally since using these Sponges i love using them, they blend my foundation and concealer brilliantly leaving my makeup looking flawless along with full coverage. In the past i have used Beauty Blenders but i feel that they just soak up the product and doesn't leave my skin looking 100 per cent flawless. 
What i love about the Silicone Sponge is that they are a lot more easier to clean then the Beauty Blender, you can simply rinse under cold/warm water and its ready to use again. 

When applying my foundation using the Silicone Sponge, i like to add a small amount of Foundation to the top-part of the sponge, i really feel a little can go a long way. 
I then apply it to the different sections of my face such as my fore-head, cheeks, chin and neck area, i then start to blend the foundation into my skin which takes seconds using this sponge as it doesn't soak up the product.

For my Concealer i love to start off by applying it to the underneath of my eyes, my forehead, nose and chin area, i then i gently blend it using the sponge.
All together these Silicone Sponges are brilliant to use, they blend so easily without any effort and they also don't soak up the product which is a huge bonus. I also love the feel of them on the skin, they are really smooth and soft, and they don't feel really rough on the skin when applying your foundation. 

For anyone that hasn't tried out these Silicone Sponges yet, i would defiantly recommend you do as they are just amazing, i don't think i will ever go back to using a beauty blender as these sponges do there job so much better and your skin looks 100 per cent flawless everytime!!!
I hope you guys enjoyed my review on the Silicone Sponges.

REVIEW: FEBRUARY GLOSSYBOX!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's blog, i hope you are all having a lovely day so far. 

For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my review on February's Glossybox.

So February's box was all to do with Valentine's Day, and it was also a collectors edition box too as it came in this gorgeous white and black strip design box.
 I love keeping boxes like these ones for storage as they are way to nice to put into recycling!!
So this February's box came with five products, three full sized and two sample sized products, i would have thought that considering it was a 'Collectors Edition' box we would have seen a sixth product.....but that wasn't to be!!


LA THEORIE DES VOLCANS FACE SCRUB

The first product i recevied was this Noir Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub by La Theorie Des Volcans. This gentle mask cleanses and purifies the skin, with it also enriched with anti-ageing ingredients it also plumps and soothes the skin.
 I loved using this product both as a scrub and a face-mask, i preferred using it when my skin needed a bit of TLC. Overall its a great product to use on the skin, the only downfall would have to be the amount you get in the product. On the Editorial Piece it states that you get 30ml but it doesn't seem a lot.

Price: £26.00
Score: 9/10


FIGS & ROUGE HYDRA-ACTIV SMART VITAL MOISTURE DAY CREAM

Next up is this Hydra-activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream. This light-weight but instant and long lasting hydration is the ideal day cream to use on your skin and with it containing hyaluronic acid and the trio of vitamins A, C and D this keeps your skin looking and feeling great. 
I love using this cream first thing in the morning before applying my makeup, it keeps my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day and keeps it feeling incredible soft too.

Price: £28.00 Full Size
Score: 10/10


GARNIER ULTIMATE BLENDS HONEY STRENGTH RESTORER BALM

On to the third product and its this Garnier Ultimate Blends Honey Strength Restore Balm.
 This Hair Mask which traps the hydrating properties of honey to leave hair feeling nourished and looking shiny. Unfortunately i have had a chance to use this yet on my hair, but as soon as i do i will give you all a full review on it.

Price: £4.49 Full Sized
Shop: boots.com


MEMEME BEAT THE BLUES IN OYSTER GOLD

Next up is this Skin Illuminator by Mememe. This is the ideal illuminator to add a little radiance to your skin as it creates a youthful dewy finish thanks to its light reflecting pigments. 
I absolutely love using this on my skin especially along my brow and cheek bones to highlight those areas and also down the center of my nose and on my cupids bow which adds radiance and light to complete the perfect makeup look.

Price: £7.25 Full Sized 
Score: 10/10


RODIAL SMOKEY EYE PEN

The last product in which i received out of this months box was this long-lasting kohl liner. The liner simply allows you to create a bold eye in a few strokes. 
The super rich pigment has a gel effect for long lasting definition and it also helps to easily apply and blend. This is the second time i have received this product, the last time i received this was in September's box, however i find this pencil great for creating a dramatic night-look and then for a day look i like to apply a small amount along my top lash line to create a bit of definition to the eyes. 

Price: £17.00
Score: 8/10

I hope you guys enjoyed February's Glossybox review.

UNANI ILLUMINATE MILK CLEANSER REVIEW!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Happy Monday to you all!! 

I hope you are all having a lovely day so far!!

For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all this review on this Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser which i recevied in January's Glossybox. Since getting this product i haven't stopped using it, i have now incorporated into my morning and evening skin care routine.

But before i give my full review on this amazing product, first up i'm going to tell you a little more about the brand and history of 'Unani'

History of Unani.......

Behind the brand 'Unani' is a Spanish Family Business with over 10 years experience in the world of natural and organic cosmetics. The name of the brand Unani comes from the therapeutic methods of unique Mediterranean culture. 
The basic principle is that the treatment should be gentle and safe, it must also balance the normal function to seek and maintain the balance of the body.
Unani has specific treatments for skin care and can be used by professionals since the products and natural cosmetic treatments are flexible and can be custom to the needs of the consumer. Unani's goal is to create truly natural products that have a positive effect on both the world we live in and you. 
The products are biodegradable and they are not tested on animals either.


Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser Review

As i mentioned above, i received this product in January's Glossybox and since then i haven't stopped using it. The product itself is a gentle cleansing milk based on nutritious natural oils which purifies and protects the skin by removing impurities as well as Makeup and Dirt, and it also restores its elasticity too, leaving it lovely and soft.
I love using this product both in the mornings and evenings as helps keep my skin clear and very much soft, In the mornings i like to apply a small amount to my skin and massaging it in to remove any makeup or dirt that may still be on my skin from the night before. I then simply rinse a damp face-cloth and remove the cleanser from my face and then dry with a towel.

I then like to repeat this process in my night-time skin care routine where i love to apply the cleanser using my Cleansing Brush, i like to use the Sponge part when applying the cleanser to my face and then gently massage in to my skin and rinse using warm water.

Since using this Unani Cleanser over the past couple of weeks, my skin feels and looks a lot more healthier and illuminated. It also has a lovely glow to it, and i can really feel the difference too in my skin been soft and very much smooth. My skin also feels amazing after using this product especially when i apply it in the mornings, it gives my skin a boost and awaken's my skin for the day!! 
I have been very intrigued in using this product and since i have researched the brand itself i am now considering purchasing some more products from the range as its a brand that works with my skin!!

To find out more on the brand and there amazing products, just click here. 
I hope you guys enjoyed my post on my Review on the Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser.
