Freedom Skincare Pro Studio Collection Reviewblogline


I’ve been testing out Freedom’s new skincare products and have a little run down here for you.

The one thing I’ll say first off is that I’m a big fan of the packaging of all Freedom Skincare (Prime, Fix, Cleanse) products. They’re not quite luxe, but they are sleek and stylish. The reflective silver is really nice on the bathroom shelf and looks super modern.

Freedom Pro Studio Glow Tonic is a professional exfoliating Toner that evens out skin tone for a clearer, brighter more glowing complexion. Using a professional formula, enriched with Glycolic Acid, Ginseng and Aloe Vera, this gentle Tonic helps remove dead skin cells, revealing smoother, softer more radiant skin.

Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo Party Refresh Review

party-refresh thumb


Refresh your hair with Herbal Essences Fresh Balance dry shampoo that 
contains a refreshing citrus fragrance and natural tapioca. Use 
in-between shampoos, to refresh your hair and your senses.

Travelling by train four days a week means I sped a lot of time in train stations and transport hubs. it also means that I buy random beauty bits just to pass time. It’s never anything expensive or over the top. iIt’s just that I’m now able to snap up bargains because I’m first in the shop in the morning and close to last out when I travel home. I’ve been waiting for dry shampoo’s to have some sort of reduction because £4 for a can of white mist is just not on!! On this occasion I bought one from Herbal Essences and another from Dove instead of my usual Colab London scent.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette Review w/Swatches


The Ultra Cream Contour Palette has 8 creams for perfect contouring, 
defining and sculpting.

If we’re being honest, which I always am around here, then when I first saw this palette I didn’t initially say “that’s something I need”. I said, “well, that’s something I’d like but wont rush out to get’. When the parcel dropped on my doorstep and I unwrapped it, for some reason I was drawn to it anyway. There’s just something about untouched cream products!

So I took my usual blog shots, did my foundation and sat down to see what Ultra Cream was all about. Continue reading

DGJ Organics Hair Juice Shampoo & Conditioner Review


The DGJ Organics range was originally developed by celebrity hairdresser 
and colourist Daniel Galvin Junior 10 years ago when there were no 
organic haircare products available. All products were rigorously salon 
tested and approved by Daniel and these very formulas are those still 
used today.

Our protein enriched shampoo and conditioner for frequent use self 
adjusts to individual hair and scalp requirements. Formulated with 
vitamins, honey, wheat protein and honeydew melon, it promotes strong 
hair and healthy scalp. Leaving your hair fresh and clean the organic

Collection Work the Colour Matt Lip Butter Review w/ Swatches


I was in ASDA the other day doing a food shop, ended up in the makeup aisle of course and saw that the Collection stand had a lot of good deals so I picked up this chubby lip crayon in the shade Crimson Velvet for £2.47 (RRP £2.99).


These lip chubbies are very similar in texture to the Clinique chubby sticks and also surprisingly to the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks Continue reading
