Hello Everyone,

Happy Tuesday to you all.

Welcome today's post, for today's one i'm going to share with you all what products i have been loving for the month of March.

FIGS & ROUGH HYDRA ACTIV DAY CREAM

My first favourite for the month of March is this Hydra-Activ Smart Nutrient Vital Moisture Day Cream from Figs and Rough which i received in February's Glossybox. 
This day cream is amazing due to its lightweight formula which absorbs into the skin instantly and gives my skin long lasting hydration throughout the day. I love to apply this to my skin before applying my makeup as its really light on my skin plus it also gives a boost of hydration first thing in the mornings. It also contains hyaluronic acid the trio of vitamins A, C and E which helps my skin. I would defiantly recommend this moisture if you are looking for a day cream that absorbs really quick and keeps your skin feeling incredible soft all day!!

TONI & GUY RE-BOOST DRY SHAMPOO

Next up is this Re-Boost Dry Shampoo from Toni & Guy, which i have been using on my hair for the past couple of weeks. I love using this dry shampoo in between washes where my hair needs a bit of a boost and some volume as well. 

This dry shampoo from Toni & Guy is the ideal product to use in your hair when it looks greasy or really flat looking, by simply spraying some of it into your roots and then massaging it into the hair this will uplift the hair and add some volume.

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.

Score: 9/10
Price: €9.00
Shop: boots.ie

Score: 10/10

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!!

I hope you guys enjoyed my post on my Review on the Unani Illuminate Milk Cleanser.
