Five Favourites from FeelUnique

Loving all the beauty gifts that appear at this time of year – with so many to choose from we’re choosing our favourite shops and bringing you our pick of their collections. Here we browse FeelUnique – it was sooooo hard to choose just five products as they have over 500 brands and 18000 products to choose from! What a dream!   First up has got to be Benefit’s Little Love Potions Gift Set at £29.50… this is the perfect gift for anyone who loves their beauty. It features all the brilliant classics from Benefit in travel sizes including: Our favourite bronzer, Hoola; The POREfessional PRO Balm Primer; b.right It’s Potent!

Soft Focus Highlighter for Face; BADgal Black Lash Mascara; “That Gal” Brightening Face Primer; and Ultra Plush Lip Gloss Mini in Hoola. What more could a girl want?!  Crabtree & Evelyn have wonderful sets at Christmas, our choice would be this Jojoba Oil Ultimate Luxuries Set – if you’re not sure what to buy this is an excellent choice as it’s not fragrance heavy and contains everything needed to indulge and improve skin. If £50 is over budget there are similar sets and individual products in the Jojoba Oil range that also come boxed to make lovely gifts.

Holiday Time! Packing Frenzy!

Off on my hols in a couple of days… two weeks this time, which means a lot of considered packing! My first thoughts are what’s going in my make-up bag… so what have I got?! First and foremost it’s travel sizes wherever possible – hoping that the travel sizes are generous to enough to not consider taking two of everything or ditching them entirely for full sizes… Having recently become an Arbonne consultant, I was delighted to find a travel set of their RE9 skincare range, I was even more delighted when it arrived to see how much they managed to cram in to the cute little gold bag 🙂 It’s got pretty much everything: Smoothing Facial Cleanser 30ml Regenerating Toner 18ml Corrective Eye Creme 5ml Intensive Renewal Serum 8ml Restorative Day Creme SPF20 8ml Extra Moisture Restorative Day Creme SPF20 8ml Night Repair Creme 7ml Age-Defying Neck Cream 14ml Instant Lift Gel 8ml Nourishing Body Wash 60ml Firming Body Creme 58ml Pretty good, huh?!  This set was £37 with a £90 spend, so you do have to order a bit to get such a great set, but if you’re using Arbonne products already this is definitely a set to go for. So skincare and a bit of bodycare is sorted… make-up next! Still some Arbonne for Tinted Moisturiser, Concealer and Mineral Powder Foundation – great bases that all work together.  I will probably take my Makeup Primer too, but all these are full sizes, so that may have to stay behind (ok, it won’t, I’ll find space in a shoe or something!). Eyeshadow-wise it’ll be my Smashbox Smokebox...
New Limited Edition Colours from ghd

New Limited Edition Colours from ghd

If you’re looking to buy new hair straighteners, take a look at the fabulous new limited edition colours from ghd. We’re huge fans of ghd anyway – their IV Styler is the perfect heat styler for getting straight, wavy or curly hair quickly and easily. Available from the ghd online store in blue, green, purple and red, they are the perfect treat or gift and come with a matching pouch and a black case. Pin...

Wednesday’s Haircare

Was up late this morning so it really was a quick hair wash and out the door… Pantene’s Breakage Defence Shampoo – I’ve only just started using this (bargain from Wilkinson’s!), so I’ve yet to decide whether it’s good or not, I think it makes my hair greasier quicker though, so yet to be convinced. John Frieda’s Go Blonder Conditioner – this I’ve been using a while and I really like 🙂  A review to follow soon, I promise! Then it was blow-dry and a quick straighten with my beloved ghds! Pin...

BaByliss Pro 230 Hair Straighteners

As a big ghd convert I’ve always been reluctant to try any other straighteners – before ghd I had Remington and Braun straighteners, but these did nothing compared to my ghds! So, could BaByliss convert me again.
