MY AUGUST FAVOURITES!!

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all having a lovely day. For today's post i am going to be sharing with you all what products i have been loving for the month of August!!

This month i have been loving a range of different products from facial products to hair-care products.

My first favourite for the month of August is this Simple Moisturising Facial Wash, i have been using this facewash through out the month of July as i had a really bad break out on my face due to a scrub i had used. So i decided to use it in the morning time and a month on the break out has complete cleared up due to this brilliant face wash from Simple.
Another product from the Simple Range in which i have been loving for the month of July is this Simple Rich Moisturiser. As i have been going through a difficult time with my skin i decided to give this Moisturiser ago as well as using my Simple Facial Wash and have to say with combining the two product with my skin i have really seen a big difference with it been a lot clear and a lot more softer. It also leaves my skin feeling really moisturised and hydrated through out the day.
Altogther both products have made a really big difference to my skin and now that i have introduced them into my everyday skin care routine i will be sticking with them for the foreseeable.

My next favourite for the month of August is this Pantene Foam Conditioner. I was very intrigued to try this out as i wanted to see how it would it work as it was a foam conditioner. 
Over the last month i have been using it on my hair just after shampooing it and i have to say the results were amazing, my hair felt soft and it also looked healthier and more radiant in colour too.

Next up is another firm favourite for this month and its this Catrice Camouflage Concealer. This is the ideal Concealer to conceal any blemishes or spots you may have, plus its also ideal for Contouring the face too. 
I have been using this for the month of August and i absoutley love using it, it not only gives amazing coverage but it also stays put on the skin for hours.

On to my Forth favourite and its these PS Calming Heat Thearpy Masks. Now if your like me and love a good refreshing face-mask then you need to try these from Primark. I picked these Calming Heat Masks up a couple of months ago and i love using them every week.
What i love about these Calming Therarpy Masks is that it heats the skin from within in the mask, so as your applying the mask to your skin you automatically feel a hot sensation on the skin, then i leave the mask on my skin for around 10-15 minutes and then was it off with some warm water. These masks leave my skin feeling incredible soft and very smooth. They also refresh my skin leaving it glowing.

My last favourite for the month of August is this Micellar Water from Cien, This is a new product on the market in all Lidl Stores.
 As a huge lover of Micellar Water i just had to try this one. I found that it re-moved my makeup in seconds along with it leaving my skin soft and very much smooth.
I hope you guys enjoyed my August Favourites Post!!

URIAGE THERMAL WATER REVIEW!!

Hello my Lovelies,

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 this Uriage Thermal Water Review. I got this product sent to me to review and to try it out on my skin.
Before i share with you all my full review first i am going to introduce you to Uriage.
Uriage is one of the leading Dermo Cosmetic Brands on the International Market is now available in Ireland and in pharmacies nationwide.
Thermal Spring Water is the key ingredient unique to the Uriage Dermatological Skincare Range and it is the basic ingredient in all of the Uriage Product Ranges. It also has lot of benefits and can be used for a wide variety of skin conditions to name but a few.

Uriage Thermal Water is from the French Alps, it can't be compared to others sold in Ireland as it is very different for example:

- Uraige is the Richest Thermal Water with the highest concentration of minerals and trace elements

- The only Thermal Water which can be used in mucous membranes thanks to its natural isotonicity you can vaporize in the eyes and nose.

-Uriage is the Richest Thermal Water with the highest concentration of minerals and trace elements.

-The only Thermal Water which can be used in mucous membranes thanks to its natural isotonicity you can vaporize in the eyes and nose.

-Uriage Thermal Water is the only active ingredient used at the Thermal Centre which leads to visible results after just 3 weeks.

-Uriage Thermal Water is the common ingredient in all Uriage Products.

Also Uriage Thermal Water has 7 Properties:

-Isotonic
-Hydrating and Soothing
-Anti-free Radical
-Anti-inflammatory
-Healing
-Filmogenic
-Reinforces the Cutaneous Barrier

Thermal Spring Water has been used by Doctors in France for decades now to treat Burns, Eczema and even Psoriasis and it doesn't stop here.....
Thermal Spring Water is truly a gift from nature to enchance and protect your natural beauty, you can use it for a variety of different things related to the skin itself such using it to set your makeup, as it helps your makeup last longer for hours, simply spray on after you apply your makeup for a longer lasting glow. 

You can also use this product after you have used a Facial Scrub as it will calm your skin especially after exfoliating as this can cause redness and some irritation. it will moisturise your body and hydrate you face. It is also the best antioxidant for the fight against free radicals.

Thermal Spring Water is really helpful to prevent dryness caused by air conditioning and central heating. It is also the perfect travel companion when in need of some hydration on the skin.

Since using the Uriage Thermal Water Spray i have found my skin to be a lot more hydrated and softer. I love applying this to my face if my skin is feeling a little hydrated, and i even love to spray it on my face when setting my makeup as it holds my makeup in place for hours.
I even use it when my skin is red or if i have had a reaction to something, its also great when you have burns/cuts as it reduces the redness and soreness. Overall this is the perfect Thermal Water Spay to have in your beauty collection as it helps in preventing a lot of skin issues.

I have also introduced this product into my everyday skin routine as it sets my makeup in the morning and refreshes my skin in the evening.
Overall i have loved using this Uriage Thermal Water as it benefits my skin in so many ways, I also love how refreshing it feels on my skin and how it doesn't irradiated it either. 

If you want to hear more about this product and a load more different products from the Uriage Range then why not check out the Uriage website now, http://www.uriage.com/MT/en/products/eau-thermale-d-uriage

MY NEW HAIRSTYLE!!

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely day.

For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you my new Hairstyle. So if you guys already follow me over on snapchat and instagram then you will have already seen my new Hairstyle.

So last Wednesday i decided to bit the bullet and go get my hair chopped!!! I haven't been to a proper Hair Salon in almost 16 years..... YES 16 YEARS!! That's because i had a really bad experience where they cut my hair so short i couldn't even tie it up, so i just stuck to having my hair long. But after so many years of having long hair, i was getting sick of maintaining it as it took so long to dry and looked so out of shape.

So as you can probably tell i was a nerves wreak going to the Hair Salon it was like i was walking in to the Dentist to get 10 teeth out!! So the hairdresser in which was going to style my hair was called Edel, she went over as to what i wanted done with my hair and how i wanted to styled. 

So i showed her a couple of pictures of styles in which i like and thought would suit me. 

So i agreed on a shoulder length style as i need to get rid of the dead ends of my hair which looked so out of shape.

And here's the results..........

I absoutley love this style, one its use to dry and maintain and two i'm able to finally put curls in my hair that will actually last for the whole day. 

Its also a lot lighter and feels super soft as well.

So there you have my New Hair Style!!!

MY ATLEISURE MUST HAVES!!

Hello Guys, 

Happy Monday to you all. I hope you are all having a lovely day so far,

Spring time is the most perfect time to up your Atleisure game due to the warmer months ahead, plus its also the time to get out there and get a lot more fitter and we all need a look that we can both rock in the gym and then again look cute if we need to go somewhere afterwards whether its to run some arrears or go for some lunch with the girls. Plus it also allows you to treat yourself to some really nice workout gear!!

I was inspired by Adore Me about doing a post on my Atleisure Must Haves. But before i share with you all my Atleisure Must Haves, first i would like to introduce you to Adore Me.

For all of you that are not that familiar, Adore me is a New York based lingerie company. Adore me provides quality and stylish designs for everybody that give you that extra boost of confidence and comfort as well. The also have a diverse range of products to choose from.  Adore's Me's Head of Design who is a former head of design at Victoria's Secret provides customers with stylish designs. They also offer a monthly subscription service that allows you to review a variety of their products and allows you to buy them in the future.

Now on to my Atleisure Must Haves........

LEGGINGS 

My first Atleisure Must Have is a good pair of leggings. I love wearing leggings that have a little extra something whether its a pop of colour, a fun pattern or cutouts. Not only are they comfy but they also give you a large range of movement when your working out and they also look cute when you pair them with an over sized top and a pair of trainers. 
I love these Leggings from Adore Me. They have a gorgeous pattern down along the sides along with a criss cross cutout detail. These leggings are ideal for working out in or running some errands.

You can find these and a lot more comfy active-wear, along with sleepwear, lingerie, bras, etc over on their website which you can fin here...AdoreMe!!


HOODIE 

Another Atleisure must have is a Hoodie. I could just live in Hoodie's as they are both warm and very comfy. You can dress up a look such as wearing a hoodie while going into the gym or running some errands, you can simply pair them with a pair of trainers or a pair of slip on's. There is a huge range of different types of hoodies anywhere. Personally i love hoodies that are white with a nice design or some really cute detail like the one pictured above.


GYM T-SHIRT

Next up is another firm favourite when it comes to Atleisure must haves, this White Block Gym T-shirt. I love buying these types of t-shirts in a bigger size as it adds a perfect amount of looseness which feels a lot more comfy especially when your working out in the gym, plus you can even wear it with your favourite leggings and trainers.


WORKOUT BRA

Another Atleisure must have is a good sports Bra. It basically keeps everything in place through an intense workout. They also provide support and reduces any movement, which can be very uncomfortable. Plus they also reduce any damage to the chest ligaments.
 In particular i love high neck sports bras as they are a style that is ideal for low impact activity which gives you the support you need. This one from AdoreMe comes with matching undies!!


BASEBALL CAP

Sometimes you just don't want to do anything with your hair and not even dry shampoo can even save you and that's where a Baseball Cap comes to the rescue.
 It is ideal for those days where your hair is in a total mess and you can wear them in almost every situation and they are the perfect Atleisure accessory. You can literally find them anywhere. This one is from ASOS is ideal for those not so hair days!!


TRAINERS

Last, but definitely not least, we can't forget a good pair of comfy Trainers. Personal i love my Nikes, i have around five pairs and they're great in the gym or when i'm out and about running errands. I love how Nike produce trainers with a fresh, stylish approach to causal apparel.
I love these trainers from the Nike range with they're punchy, modern colour taking center stage, while been comfortable and durable to the brand's core. And whats even better is that you can wear them straight out of the gym with the rest of my atleisure must haves and still have a complete chic look!!

This month i have tried a selection of new products and have went back to my old favourites!!

CIEN DRY SHAMPOO

My first favourite for the month of May is this Dry Shampoo from the Cien Range at Lidl's. This is only a new product which has only hit stores a couple of weeks ago and i have to say i absolutely love it. 
As you will already know i love to use Dry Shampoo in-between washes and this one no doubt does its job a 100 per cent with its lovely refreshing scent which leaves your hair smelling gorgeous throughout the day.

Price: €1.99
Shop: Lidls
Score: 10/10


PENNEYS 'CLEAN ON ME MICELLAR' WATER

Next up is this 'Clean on Me' Micellar Water which is from Penney's. I seen this Micellar Water a few months ago, so on a trip to Penney's i decided to pick up a bottle of it to try out. 
My first impressions was that this really works in removing makeup in seconds, plus it leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft, and above all else make-up free. Also it doesn't cause any irritation to the skin either.

Price: €2.50
Shop: Penney's (Primark) 
Score: 9/10


MAX FACTOR LIPFINITY

On to my third favourite for the month of May and its this Lipfinity Kit from Max Factor. 
I got given this in a goody bag a few months ago and because we are now in summer it is the ideal time to wear this shade on the lips thanks to its Peach shade. This is an amazing lip kit as it has a step 1 and step 2 to it. where you apply the shade to the lips and then you put on a clear moisture topcoat which keeps the shade on your lips for longer. 
I have been using this lip-kit throughout the whole month of May as the shade is ideal for these summery months. I love how it lasts on your lips for longer thanks to its top coat.

Price: €14.99
Shop: Boots.ie
Score: 10/10


BEVERLY HILLS 'PERFECT WHITE' BLACK TOOTHPASTE

Next up is this Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black Toothpaste. Now i'm a huge fan of having sparkly white teeth!! So when i came across this new Beverly Hills Formula i just had to give it a go. With its activated Charcoal this helps remove surface and deep stains that brightens, lightens and whitens your teeth.
 Plus it also helps eliminate bacteria causing bad breath and neutralises remaining odors leaving your breath feeling fresh all day long. I have been using this for a few weeks now and i can really see the difference in my teeth as they are looking a lot more whiter.

Price: €5.99
Shop: Tesco/Boots
Score: 10/10


THIS WORKS MASK, MOISTURISER & PRIMER

On to my fifth favourite for the month of May and its this Works Mask, Moisturiser & Primer. I have been using this product for the past couple of weeks. 
I love using this just before i apply my makeup as it even''s, plumps and brightens my skin. It also erases signs of fatigue, plus it gives a boost of hydration and also preps your skin for a photo perfect makeup look.
