Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Foundation Review

"Better Skin reduces the appearance of the visible effects of stress including bumps, dullness and redness. The formula is suitable for sensitive skin, contains no perfume, and is non-comedogenic. It is tested under dermatological control."
Back in February I was feeling adventurous whilst browsing the aisles of Boots and fancied trying out a new foundation. I've tried out many a Maybelline foundation, with good results, and Better Skin has many promises which I look for in a foundation.
Ivory isn't the typical pale skin colour that I'm used to picking up. I found Ivory only suited me when I was wearing fake tan. I resorted to buying a second bottle in the shade Light Beige which ended up being the perfect shade for my NW15 skin. 
I suppose from the above statement you can tell I liked the results of Better Skin. The liquid applied well on my sensitive, dry skin. My skin didn't feel at all irritated or dehydrated. It blended well with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and covered up any redness and left my skin looking quite glowy. That being said if you like a matt base this isn't the foundation for you. 
This is my daily skin base. It's a medium coverage which lasts all day. Hello Better (looking) Skin.

Statement Trouser Haul: Dorothy Perkins and George at Asda

I was on the hunt for some floral trousers that I could dress up and looked in nearly every shop on the high street. Many shops didn't have any led tin my size or just didn't have the right size or colour of flowers (picky I know). Finally I stumbled upon an amazing pair from Dorothy Perkins which were the perfect size. Right after snapping them up I went to Asda and the first thing I spotted was another pair of statement trousers! For only £10 I thought they were a must have that I could wear for any occasion.

No7 Perfectly Bronzed Tinted Lotion Review

No7 Perfectly Bronzed Tinted Lotion

It's hard being ghostly pale as the summer approaches. I much prefer to have a bit of a glow but can't pull off the brown -clearly fake- tanned look on a day to day basis. 'Perfectly Bronzed' is the exact shade I'd love to achieve so the No7 Tinted Lotion was an obvious one for me to try out.

The cream is quite thin and light coloured which helps for applying as it shows lightly on the skin but sinks in quickly. I use a tanning mitt to help apply it evenly and it's never gone streaky. There's not too much of a smell from the lotion and there's no awful biscuit smell hours after application like some others. The cream is quite light and non-greasy, it dries and sinks in quickly and is gentle on the skin. I've even used it on my face without any colour or clogging disasters!

I bought my bottle when Boots has their No7 vouchers to save £5, which makes this a bit more affordable. This product isn't for everyone, and if you're looking for a tanner that provides a deep colour this won't be for you.  But if you're after a subtle, even colour, have a pale skin tone or are a bit wary when it comes to tanning - this might be worth a shot.

Chi Chi Clothing Summer Favourites

I'm loving 2 trends this summer, neons and pastels. Chi Chi Clothing has some of the most gorgeous dresses for special occasions and nights out and this summer they have a fantastic selection of pastel dresses. It didn't take me long to start picking out some of my favourite pastel dresses on the Chi Chi Clothing website but it took some time to narrow it down to my top 3.

Garnier Ultimate Blends 1 Minute Polishing Scrub

"Target the appearance of split ends, with the Ultimate Blends Silky Smoother 1 Minute Polishing Scrub, blended with Vanilla Milk and Papaya extract and enriched with tiny micro-beads. Use a few times a week instead of your regular conditioner, for strokably soft, beautifully smoothed hair."

I think this purchase shows just how powerful a quick little ad before a youtube video can be. Just an hour before I popped into Superdrug an advert about this new split end polishing scrub was playing on my iPad and I was quite quick to click skip ad. Fast forward an hour and it was jumping into my basket. It wasn't a total impulse purchase, I was on the lookout for a new intensive conditioner and this managed to fit the bill quite well.

With long (heat attacked and dyed) hair, split ends are inevitable and this new intense conditioner with micro beads is tailor made for long hair prone to split ends. The idea of micro-beads intrigued me and the promise of working in just 1 minute was all too tempting.
The vanilla milk and papaya scent is sweet and smells delicious. The cream is lovely and thick and the scrub side isn't too over the top or out of the ordinary. 
Obviously using this product a few times isn't going to miraculously change the ends of my hair but it does leave my hair and ends feeling smooth and healthy. 

I don't really like the packaging of this product. The squeeze tube is quite good but it's not as easy as a tub to get every last drop out. I don't like the colour of the packaging either. There's something about the shimmery peach colour that makes it look old fashioned. Quite a minor complaint to make really.

I'm tempted to check out the rest of the Ultimate Blends range, maybe the nourishing repairer or sleek restorer.
