Aftersun Skincare Tried & Tested.. Vaseline Moisturiser

image

So I am just back from holidays and my skin is so dry because our lovely Irish weather has a mild breeze. I’m quite sallow skinned naturally but I find living in Ireland in winter my skin gets very dry due to the lack of Sun! Im very sensitive to perfumed products too.

This moisturiser from Vaseline happens to be the only moisturiser that keeps my skin constantly moisturised it’s quick drying , but luxurious and feels soft on the skin. Even after 24hrs my skin hadn’t dried out it also has kept my tan from peeling.

Birthday Gift – Ladies say Hello to GlossyBox 💋

Sooo for my Birthday this February my Husband asked me what I would like as my gift. We only got married a few months ago and he has more than spoiled me with thoughtful gifts throughout the year plus Valentine’s Day is 8 days prior to my Birthday (which for him is horrible as he feels he runs out of gift idea’s and I feel bad for him). I love to travel so I said once we go away for a few days I’d be happy with that but he still wanted to hand me a gift so I couldn’t think of anything I wanted or needed until I thought of GlossyBox Gift Subscription

Being a Piscean of course means I ❤ to try new things as same routines bore the living daylights out of me:) so if your the same or know someone like this you have found the Perfect Gift!

They send you a starter kit to Welcome you which I think is fab this kit had a pretty black bow on the outside once opened it revealed :

What is even more amazing rather than giving one gift to your loved one you can choose a 3month 6month or 12 month subscription which means they will receive a pretty pink parcel each month with beautiful gifts inside.
Who doesn’t like to pampered every month. I love that you do not know what your getting so it’s always a suprise!

My March box came very quickly too and I was delighted to find a highlighter brush, highlighter, shampoo & conditoner some Hey Honey face serum and Olay moisturiser Which are my favourites my skin is loving those two so much so I decided to order them. They are so gentle on my skin and super luxurious so it feels like you have spent a evening at the spa 🌸

JUST A LITTLE TIP:
What I love more is the pretty pink boxes can be upcycled and re-used to store some photo’s,make-up or even to put gifts in. My little brother robbed one to send his girlfriend in Germany a gift (Which I’m sure is a lot nicer than any mans gift wrapping skills 😛)

So go on and treat yourself,drop hints to your man for a upcoming birthday or spoil yourself or a friend either way you won’t be dissapointed 💋

SkincareClairns

First up I always cleanse and moisturise before bed I find toners are very harsh on my skin so rarely use them as I think they strip your skin of its natural layer.
The one brand of moisturiser I swear by is by Clairns, for night I use Multi Active Night and Multi active day they are expensive but worth every cent and once you use sparingly they last you months.

Face Iasdora B.B cream

I love how light BB creams are especially  that this contains a Spf I chose Medium no.2 as even though I am sallow skinned your foundation should really blend into your natural skin tone in winter I do be a little lighter in summer I’m a lot darker so pick your colour on your exact skin tone at the time. I also applies this using my fingers as it blend nicer and you don’t need to keep applying it to a foundation brush.wpid-isadora_bbcream_final.jpg

Eyes – L’Oréal 4d Mascara

I used L’Oréal 4d mascara which really defines the eyes and is great  even if your not wearing any eyeshadow which I don’t unless I’m going out.

wpid-l_oreal-paris-false-lash-architect-4d-mascara.jpgEyeliner – Smash box Sienna eyeshadow

I love Smash box products especially  this softbox palette. Sienna is botyom right hand corner its a grwat colpur for day or night really makes the eyes pop. I literally wet a brush and dip it in this colour and line the lower and top lids with it as a eyeliner the brown is fab on brown eyes plus natural and light at same time.

What scent I’m loving right now ..By Zara ❤

image

This is my favourite scent ❤ at the moment. It was given to me by my Mother-in-Law she is a big Zara lover and I’m forever commenting on her perfumes. I can’t get enough of it. It’s Called Zara Femme and Its so cheap retailing at €10.99 and can be found at the cash points in most Zara Zara stores they have a few scents.

image

It comes in a Cream linen style presentation box and the packaging itself is quite glamourous with a modern twist and gold lid.. the bottle itself is very pretty! And it smells absolutely divine I would definitely recommend getting yourself to Zara for a bottle 🙂

Bourjois French Manicure Kit

image I recently tried this French Manicure kit from Bourjois. I have been a huge fan of their products since I was a teenager. So I was excited to see this kit having tried other brands on the market this kit was by far the best! It is €14.99 The Kit comes with a top coat, white coat and pink polish. The brushes in the kit are angled perfectly to get a clean line and they don’t pick up too much polish so there’s no sloppy excess to remove they are designed to perfection. I was easily able to build up the coats and they dried fast. In the past when using other manicure kits I found they smudged and took too long to dry. I got my nails done with no mess and they lasted for days without chipping a lot of people admired them assuming I had them done at a salon. 💅

NYE makeup..Urban Decay 💄

Decided to make good use of my Christmas bonus and treat myself to some new makeup & some lip gloss. As any bride-to-be will know when wedding saving every cent goes to something other than yourself. I had my makeup done with Urban Decay and there policy is you purchase two products which means your make over is free, so the make-up artist matched up my colour to my skin colour and I was number 4. I actually liked how lightweight this foundation is as I hate heavy makeup. I like my skin to be able to breath and also to look like myself. I opted for a Smokey eye with eyeliner.

Naked skin Foundation €38

I also picked up this lip gloss too which I adore it’s not sticky, it lasts long and is quite natural looking.

Naked skin lip gloss € 19
