things i've used up #8

CHANEL EYE-MAKE UP REMOVER, JOHN FREIDA VOLUME DRY SHAMPOO, BUMBLE AND BUMBLE MENDING CONDITIONER, MACADAMIA HEALING OIL SPRAY, DOVE HAIR THERAPY INTENSIVE CONDITIONER, SANCTUARY DEEP CLEANSE FACIAL WASH, CUTEX NOURISHING NAIL POLISH REMOVER, CUTEX MOISTURE GUARD NAIL POLISH REMOVER 
I have so many empties products, I had just picked out few for this post. Whenever I've done a full review on a product, I will include the link to the post. Personally I love reading empties post, as you can find a honest opinion about a certain product. 

The Chanel Demaquillant Yeux Intense is the worst eye make-up remover I had a chance to use! Not worth the money! It did not get rid of waterproof mascara, as the producer claimed. John Freida Volume Dry Shampoo another product that just didn't work for me, as much as I love John Freida products. this just didn't do anything to my hair, but just made them more greasy a lot more faster. Bumble and Bumble mending Conditioner is just amazing! Worked with my hair really well, I will definitely go back to using it. Macadamia Healing Oil Spray wasn't my favourite, but I enjoyed using it in the end. It was a okay product. Dove Hair Therapy Intensive Conditioner was very simple to use, as you only needed to apply it on the hair for 3minutes, great to use in the shower. The hair felt really smooth and soft afterwards, lovely product to use. The Sanctuary Deep Cleanse Facial Wash was okay, nothing special. Didn't really do anything to my skin. I am not very picky when it comes to nail polish remover, as long as they do the job, I am happy. Both Cutex nail polish worked in the same way, I haven't noticed any difference between them, apart form the Moisture Gard formula was white.Apart from that they didn't dry out my nails.

cult beauty haul

DAVINES NATURAL TECH DE STRESS LOTION £14.50, PHYTO 7 HYDRATING CREAM £15.50, DR.LIPP NIPPLE BALM FOR LIPS £11.50, ANASTASIA BEVERY HILLS BROW WIZ £15.50, PETER THOMAS ROTH INSTANT SPF 45 £24

I been a little bit naughty again! I decided to pay some attention to Cult Beauty website, I just wanted to have a look at their sun protection products which you can use on your face. It's so difficult to find a good non sticky screen protection factor cream. I was really curious about the Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 45, I just liked the form of application. Can't wait to use it! Then I realised that Cult Beauty has the Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips, this is a product I wanted forever! There are so many positive reviews on it around the bloggers, and I must say so far it's amazing! I am in love with the formula.

Then I have stalked the Hair Care products and of course something must had landed in my basket, the Davines NaturalTech Well-Being De Stress Lotion I don't really have a opinion on this yet, but what I can say, me and this scent aren't getting along too well. I love Phyto hair products, when I saw the PHYTO 7 Hydrating Day Cream with 7 Plants, I thought why not give it a go. I will let you know how my hair will get along with this product. Good looking brows are my weakness recently, I never thought I would be brow obsessed! I never had used any brow liners, but I wanted to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, I read few positive reviews about it, so far I can say that the colour match is amazing and it's great to use on more lazy days. Once I will get a chance to use all the products I will be posting full review on them, as well as I may include them in my favourites! So keep out for that. Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

current hair products

PERCY&REED HEAT PROTECTING SPRAY, LEE STAFFORD SEA SALT SPRAY, BUMBLE AND BUMBLE TONIC LOTION, PHILIP KINGSLEY SCALP TONER

Hope all of you are enjoying the lovely weather we have here in London! It's so lovely and warm. I've been tanning for the past two days, guess what? I am still as pale as I used to be, guess I been doing something wrong. I recently have re-ombred my hair, I feel like it was a bad idea now, as my hair got a lot more drier, and slightly more difficult to style. Here are the products I am enjoying to use at the moment. 

Percy&Reed products smell incredible! A heat protection spray is a must in my everyday hair care, I also tend to use it whenever I am sun bathing, it probably does help to protect the hair a little from the sun. Percy&Reed heat protection spray has a dry formula, it's slightly powdery but you don't feel that in your hair once you brush it out. Leaves your hair smelling amazing! The Lee Stafford Sea Salt Spray is amazing to achieve the look of bed head hair. The formula is slightly sticky, but what it does to your hair is just great! I like to use it on damp hair, then the effect is a lot more better. It's adds a nice texture, as well as curl to your hair. The Bumble and Bumble Tonic Lotion is great to keep your hair hydrated! I tend to spray it to my hair whenever I am near it, as it doesn't really affect my hair in a negative way, it's just leaves them looking a lot more healthier. It's amazing when you want to brush out your hair, it's is a pricey toy, but it's worth the money! The Philip Kingsley Scalp Toner is my life safer at the moment! My scalps are a lot more drier during warmer weather and this is just helping me to maintain the moisture on my scalps. The product doesn't weight down my hair, doesn't make my hair look oily. There is pretty much no scent to the product. Overall I am using lots of more hair products, but I just wanted to share with you my current favorites.

daily skincare essentials


My normal to combination skin loves a little pamper. I love skincare products, the better your skin is, the more happy you are. I don't have any breakouts problems at the moment, but my skin is slightly dehydrated on the cheeks and nose area, note to myself drink more water! 

Clarins HydraQuench Cream is just amazing as make-up base! It's very light on the skin and absorbs really quickly.  It's doesn't leave the skin feeling sticky as some moisturises do, the cream doesn't contain any SPF, so you will need to apply different SPF cream underneath, to keep your skin protected. The formula is really light, I like that it does keep the my skin re-hydrated. I am actually very curious about the new gel formula version, I have been using the sample and I love it so far! The cream has a very lovely scent, which isn't overpowering and it's goes away within few seconds.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a lovely facial oil. As you can guess from the name, this is a night product. You can either add a drop to your night cream or use it alone. I like to apply alone, but from time to time I do mix it with a night cream. It does leave a oily layer on your skin, but it's okay, as it's doesn't transfer on your bed sheets. In the morning you will also wake-up with slightly oily skin, but your skin will feel amazing afterwards. I would also recommend it to people with very oily skin, as even oily skin needs to be kept moisturised. I am in love with the kind of organic scent, which is impossible to describe. I like that the bottle is see-through so you can see how much product you have left. 

Every time when I use up a product, I switch to something new, still looking for my perfect moisturiser to use during the day, this doesn't mean that I don't love the Clarins one, but  I just love testing new products. Although, I do tend to go back to my favourite skincare products, which work with my skin well, mostly when I am suffering with really bad skin days, then I like to go back to products, which I know I can trust.

loreal nail polish in nouvelle vauge

L'OREAL NAIL POLISH in NOUVELLE VAUGE 851
Excuse  the photo quality, my brother was forced to help me out, but his photography skills are very bad, he needs to learn how to focus. As I been wearing bare nails pretty much all the time during the month of May, I finally got into painting my nails again. The L'Oreal Nouvelle Vague 851 is such a beautiful lilac grey nail polish. You can't really tell from the photo it true colour, as on the photo it's looks more purple. I never really reached for L'Oreal nail polishes, until I notice this range, I am in love with the size of the bottle, as well as the size of the brush. It's also very fast in drying. On my nails I am wearing 3 coats, you can wear 2 coats and it will looks as good. I love pastel colours on my nails, they look so pretty!

If you have any colour recommendations from the L'Oreal range feel free and let me know. What are your favourites colours to wear during summer?

lush mint julips lip scrub

Don't we all love smooth lips? As I love to scrub my body and face and lip scrub is a must! Especially when you are a lipstick wearer, you just want to get rid of all the dead flaky skin off your lips. Lush have few different scented/taste lips scrubs, I personally prefer minty scent, as I like the tingly coolness it leaves on the lips. The scrub is made out of real sugar crystals, after you finish the scrub you can just lick it off your lips. Yeah, it's very sweet in taste. It contains Organic Jojoba Oil, Peppermint Oil, Tagetes Oil, the oils leave your lips moisturised. The little pot goes a long way. The scrub can be a little messy when you apply too much on your lips, as then the bits will fall on your top. 

I personally just love taking care of my lips, as I love when a lipstick looks good. If you have any recommendation of lip care products, please feel free to let me know.  I am still loving my Nuxe Lip Balm.

may favourites

BOBBI BROWN HYDRATING EYE CREAM, DIORSHOW MAXIMIZER LASH PLUMPING SERUM, MAC LIPSTICK in HUE, BOURJOIS HEALTHY MIX SERUM FOUNDATION, MAC PREP+PRIME TRANSPARENT FINISHING POWDER, ESSIE NAIL in MADEMOSELLE

Can't believe we are in the middle of 2014 already! Even thought I say it pretty much every month, it's quite scary that the time is going so fast. During the month of May I kept on digging out old products, which just kept on getting covered with dust, naughty me. 

Eye cream is a must, it's not a product which you should only use when your skin is starting to age, but you should include it in your skincare even when you are in your 20s. The Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream is amazing! Keeps my under eye area moisturised. Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum is the best product I had discovered! Not going to lie I love long and volumized lashes, so I been doing everything to make my eyelashes better looking. You apply the serum just before applying mascara, I must say it did improve my lashes condition, as well as it does add more volume to the lashes. The formula is white, but once it dries on your lashes it turns clear, so you have nothing to worry about. I finally got back into using Hue on my lips, this is such a pretty nude, which looks good against my skin complexions, as it isn't giving me the dead lips effect. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is still something I have mix feelings on, I love it and I hate it at the same time. The foundation looks amazing on the skin, I love the medium coverage, the colour match, but from time to time it does break me out! It's one of my favourite foundations to use during summer, as it's very lightweight on the skin. MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder is great to use on the T-Zone to keep it mattyfied. Doesn't make your face look cakey or very powdery. This month I been loving nudes on my nails, or just clear nail polish. Essie Mademoselle is a very pretty almost clear pinky nail polish. You can easily pull it of with just one coat. What were your may favourites? Have you tried any products I mention above?

soap&glory sugar crush body scrub

SOAP&GLORY SUGAR CRUSH BODY SCRUB £7.99

Soap&Glory products are so amazing for pampering your skin! All the products smell ineradicable. The Sugar Crush range is one of my favourite, as it's has that zesty scent, it's perfect for the summer. I love using the Sugar Crush shower gel and on weekly basic I reach for the Body Scrub! 

I love body scrubs, they just make my skin feel so much softer and smoother. I like when you can actually feel the scrub, so you know it's actually working. As you may already know I love Soap&Glory The Breakfast Scrub, but it's has more sweeter scent, which is amazing during winter time. The Sugar Crush Scrub scent lasts on the skin for a while, you can always make it last longer by using the Sugar Crush body lotion. It contains brown sugar, lime, almond oil and macadamia grains. It leaves my skin exfoliated and soft. I like when scrubs aren't too harsh on the skin and this one is just perfect, even though the grains are quite large! I would also recommend the scrub to people with sensitive skin, as it isn't too harsh. Overall I do really like the product. Have any of you tried it before, what do you think of it?
