May 2015 Beauty Favourites

This month I have really enjoyed beauty and trying out new products and rediscovering the ones in the back of my collection. A couple of my favourite this month are products that I can't believe I am only trying for the first time this month, seriously where have I been?! They are incredible and I am kicking myself for not trying them earlier!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Duo

I am not sure why it has taken me so long to try the Bourjois Healthy Mix range but I am so glad that I finally have! Recently I was in the market for some new face products and saw that these were on for at Boots and managed to get them for free with my points! The main reason I was so excited to finally try these is because I had heard that they are amazing for us pale skin girls!

Ted Baker Fruity Floral Mint

Ted Baker recently released two gorgeous new collections, the Fruity Floral Mint and the Soft Floral Pink. Fruity Floral Mint sounded right up my street. I have been a big Ted Baker body care fan for a while now and I was very excited to try out some of the new products, not to mention the packaging is stunning with these new releases!

Makeup Revolution Affirmation Eyeshadow Palette + Swatches

When it comes to eyeshadows, I am not one to spend a lot of money on them and there really is no need to anymore. Makeup Revolution literally have every eyeshadow palette I could ever need and I think the new Affirmation Palette* might have become an essential in my makeup bag.

Barry M Flawless Light Reflecting Concealer

If there is one make up product that I am always trying out new versions of, it is concealers. I feel like I am forever on the hunt for the best of the best when it comes to concealers and when I saw Barry M had released the Flawless Light Reflecting Concealer I knew I had to give it a try! Having tried a couple of their foundations in the past and not being a huge fan of them, I was still excited to try this out, having heard great things.

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Summer Scoop Tart

After not using my tart warmer for a couple of weeks, I am fallen in love with it all over again. The scent, which I can't believe I have never tried, is Yankee Candle's Summer Scoop. I am a massive fan of the fruity and foody scents so seeing as this is pretty but a combination of my two favourite scents, I had pretty high hopes for it!

Face D Instant Hydrating Anti-Aging Sheet Masks

Having heard everyone talk about sheet masks for what feels like the longest time, I have finally tried one! The Face D Instant Hydrating Anti-Aging Sheet Masks* made me pretty excited when they popped through the letterbox as my skin tends to be on the drier side sometimes and I am all for products that will inject a bit more hydration into my skin.

How I Clean My Makeup Brushes

Now I know this post might be pretty self explanatory but it is all focused around one little thing that has changed the way I clean my brushes. For years I never washed my brushes as much as I should and after I read an article about how a girl borrowed one of her friends make up brushes and ended up with MRSA, it changed my whole outlook and I now clean my brushes once a week. Who wants to be using dirty brushes on their face anyway?!

REVIEW: Fitbit Flex

For Christmas I got a Fitbit Flex from my Mum and have worn it pretty much everyday since. Although I am not the most active person but I am trying to be, even if I do hate actually moving. Since getting my Fitbit I have found myself trying to get my step count up so it has been really helping and I have loved using it!

L'Oreal Micellar Gel Sensitive Eye Make-up Remover

When I saw this in the aisles of Boots I was instantly interested. I am a massive fan of micellar waters but I had never seen a micellar gel! As it is aimed towards sensitive eyes I thought it would be perfect for me because my eyes can be a slightly reactive occasionally. The Loreal Micellar Gel Sensitive Eye Make Up Remover (worlds longest name) claims to be gentle, soothing and refreshing on the eyes while it is hypo-allergenic and having no fragrance. It is also suitable for contact lense wearers!

American Sweets Haul + Stockists

Having been to the States when I was younger, I got a little bit obsessed with all of the sweet treats they have out there. Getting hold of them from the UK can be difficult if you don't know where to look but with many retailers seeing how much us Brits want the American goods they have started to slowly stock some of the favourites! All of the bits mentioned in this haul are from B&M Home Stores but I know that not everyone has one near them so I thought it would be helpful to list some of my favourite retailers, many of which are online based if you do want to get your hands on these yumminess!

Everyday Face #8

I have been using so many different products recently so I thought it was time again to update my everyday face! All but one of these products are ones that I have rediscovered recently or are new purchases. I had been pretty much using the same old products for the longest time but I have finally found some new loves!

Beauty Wishlist #27

I swear no matter how many beauty products I buy, my wishlist just seems to get longer and longer each time! I have found myself really enjoying higher end products recently which scares me a little bit because some of them are so expensive but I do still lust over so many high street products. I have been really into tanning recently but my skin has got quite dry because of it so I am in need of new moisturisers, so if you have any recommendations please let me know in the comments! 

REVIEW: Iconemesis iPhone 6 Case

My iPhone is basically an extension of my arm, pretty much the only time it isn't in my hand is when I am in the bath or sleeping! Since getting an iPhone 6 towards the end of last year, I have really struggled with finding cute cases that weren't overly expensive. I stupidly purchased a Ted Baker one shortly after getting my iPhone, which was priced at around £30 and broke within a month! But since having this one from Iconemesis I haven't taken it off!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

When I saw this months You Beauty Discovery short list, I knew I had to get my hands on the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I made sure I made my order at around 7am to make sure I didn't miss out, but it did go out of stock very quickly which doesn't surprise me after hearing such amazing things! Every time I see someone talking about this on twitter I heard nothing but good things so I was very excited to start using it.

St Moriz Gradual Self Tanning Lotion

Now that the sun is out, my extremely pale skin seems to reflect from the sun and blind people so it is time to have my tan on! When it comes to self tanning the one brand I head straight to is St Moriz, I trust this brand with my life and I know I am not going to end up with any tanning fails! I have been testing this Gradual Self Tanning Lotion* for the past couple of weeks and I think I have fallen in love with the stuff!

Face D Instant Effect Depuffing Eye Mask

I have always struggled with my under eye area and haven't ever thought to give eye masks a try. I have heard a lot about these types of eye masks and have seen similar ones on the cast of Pretty Little Liars on snapchat and with them always looking incredible, I am hoping my eye area will look half as good!

Roger and Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum // #DistillingHappiness

When the postman gave me this parcel this morning, I was so excited! I didn't actually plan on posting about it today but I was just so excited that I had to share all about it. I have mentioned quite a few times how much I love the Roger and Gallet Fleur de Figuier scent and I am so excited that they have released an eau de perfum! Massive thank you to Sarah and Maddie at Roger and Gallet PR, this is honestly one of the best parcels I have received, such a thoughtful thing to do!

Rita Ora Nail Polishes for Rimmel London

I must admit, I really dislike Rita Ora but I do love nail polishes! When I was browsing the beauty section in my local Tesco and saw these were on offer, I thought I would give them a try! I am a bit of a nail polish snob and normally only go for OPI and Barry M but I am surprised at how much I do like these Rimmel London shades and I think I will be purchasing a few more!

Self Tanning Routine

This year has been all about fake tan of me. I have found some amazing tans already and some terrible ones. I have finally found a combination of products which give me the perfect summer glow all year round. All of these products are my favourites when it comes to tanning and I would highly recommend them, specially if you are new to tanning like I was.

Beauty Wishlist #26

Even though I just posted a pretty big beauty haul, I still have a wishlist - blogger problems. All of these products are things I haven't really seen much off which kind of makes me want them more so I can do reviews. So many pretty products and a primer water? I am very interested to see if it actually works!

You Beauty Discovery Box May 2015

After months of being unsubscribed to You Beauty Discovery, I finally found a short list where I wanted everything and signed back up! You Beauty Discovery is a sample box service where each month you get two choice two products, some times full sizes, from a short list as well as receiving 2-4 preselected samples for just £6.95 a month. This months short list was very popular from the looks of it as most products are already out of stock!You Beauty Discovery Box May 2015

Busy B Weekly Planner

If there is one thing I think every blogger should try and do, its to plan out your blog. I have found my posts and blog improve so much more if I actually plan it all out before hand. I had tried planning out things on my phone and that ended pretty quickly, as did using a notebook. I have found it so much more affective to use this gorgeous Busy B Weekly Planner Pad*.

Boots Beauty Haul

Ever since I got paid, I knew I needed to hit up Boots. I seemed to have run out of everything at the same time which made it a bit of a expensive trip for just basic things I needed. I saw a couple of new  products while I was in Boots and I was surprised I hadn't seen anyone talk about them yet so reviews will be coming soon on those products!

Hair Care Routine

I recently got my hair cut for the first time in almost a year and I am determined to keep my hair in the best condition as possible. My hair is in amazing condition and so thick at the moment and with these products I am planning on keeping it that way for as long as possible! My hair grows stupidly quick and I do all the things your not meant to do, like washing it everyday, using heat daily and dyeing it so I am not sure what is going on with my hair but I am not complaining!

Jewel Candle Review

My love of candles has never been so strong. I was so excited to get burning this candle to see what beautiful ring was hidden within. Jewel Candle's are not only a wonderful candle that will fill your room with your selected fragrance. But they also have jewellery in them! Depending on what candle you pick, you will get either, earrings, a ring or a necklace - how exciting is that! Jewel Candle also has created a bath line with jewellery in, consisting of, bath bombs, soaps and cupcakes!

Dior Lips // Lip Maximizer and Lip Glow

I have really been into high end beauty lately and Dior has been my go to brand for any lip products I had been lusting after. I had two products on my wish list since around Christmas time and I finally have them in my life. They are the Dior Lip Maximiser and the Dior Lip Glow. These two products have barely left my lips since I got them and I know I am going to repurchase them over and over again!

The Worst Tan? // Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Instant Tan

After hearing nothing but rave reviews about this tan, I thought I would finally pick it up when I saw it was finally on the shelves in my local Tesco. I was so excited to give it a try that I pretty much put it on as soon as I got home from buying it and I was nothing but disappointed with it, I honestly do not understand why everybody loves it so much because there isn't one thing I even like about it! I never normally do negative reviews but I had to share my opinions on this one because of seeing nothing but good reviews on it!

MeMeMe Pressed Perfection Eye Inspire Collection

For years I have been enjoying MeMeMe products but I had never tried any of their eyeshadows until now. I was quiet excited when this MeMeMe Pressed Perfection Eye Inspire Collection* arrived at my door as it is pretty much all of the shades of eyeshadows I could ever use so this little gift set is perfect for me!

REVIEW: Yankee Candle Beach Holiday Tart

As soon as I heard about the new Yankee Candle collection, Life's a Beach, I knew I had to get my hands on them as soon as possible. The first one I picked up was the Beach Holiday tart and I pretty much popped it straight in my warmer as soon as it came through my letter box and it has become a fast favourite scent of mine and I know I am going to need to stock up on this scent as I believe it is limited edition!

St Moriz Fast Self Tanning Mousse

A month or so ago I started using fake tan for the first time after I won some goodies from St Moriz in a Tesco at Beauty Chat and I have never looked back. I have since started trying out different brands and the one that always comes out on top is St Moriz. I was so excited to try out the new Fast Self Tanning Mousse* and applied it pretty such as soon as it was delivered!
