Review: Thursday Plantation Oil Cleanser, Brightening Oil and Face Moisturiser *


I was recently sent this little trio to trial, and I was really excited about it, because this brand was new to me! The company is great in that the products they come up with are vegan, cruelty free and the containers are recyclable. All the products are packed full of excellent stuff for your skin, but the real question is, how does it work on the skin?

Review: Elucent Anti-Ageing Skincare Range and Whitening Eye Cream *

Sometimes, I think about what it means to be a beauty blogger, and honestly, I think the best answer is that, to me, being a beauty blogger means having a mad passion about makeup and skincare products, and nothing thrills me more than having the chance to try out something completely different and unfamiliar to me. On a tangent, can I say, despite what friends and family say sometimes, I am an extremely easy person to buy for - honestly - just get makeup!

Review: Dr LeWinn's Eternal Youth Insta-Perfect Blur Cream *

Blur creams are getting increasingly popular, so it's no surprise that Dr. LeWinn's would get on that bandwagon too! This is part of their Eternal Youth range. 

This particular product comes in a great ombre silver/black tube that has a screw cap and contains 30 of cream.

August 2015 Binned Things

Look at this teeny pile of trash! Not quite up to my usual standards, but alas, what can you do? Here's what I went through last month.

1) Dirty Works Coconut Body Butter - See full review here.
Repurchase? Probably

2) Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover - See full review here.
Repurchase? For when I have makeup that won't budge

3) Clairol Herbal Essences Honey I'm Strong Shampoo - A decent shampoo for my tresses.
Repurchase? Maybe

4) Listerine Antiseptic Mouthwash with Fluoride - Mouthwashes are a staple, but this one was a little too spicy for me.
Repurchase? Only when the other flavours aren't available

5) Anatomicals You and Your Incessant Digs Bath Salts - Great scent, but didn't do much for my aches and pains. It could have just been the overwhelmingness of the aches and pains, though!
Repurchase? If it's on special

6) Natio Spa Heavenly Hand Cream - I wasn't won over by this hand cream. It was a little too meh for my taste.
Repurchase? No

7) Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask - You would have seen this one as part of my empties before! Heats up, cleans out, just awesome
Repurchase? Yup!

8) Etude House I Need You, Job's Tears! Facial Mask - Not one of my favourite masks from them in that it didn't do much for my skin
Repurchase? No

9) Marc Jacobs Lipstick in Role Play - My all time favourite nude! 
Repurchase? Yes, yes, yes!

10) Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair - Really enjoyed using this! I thought it made a difference to my skin.
Repurchase? Yes

11) Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cream - I really liked the rosy scent of this face cream and how it felt on my skin. Very luxe, just gorgeous!
Repurchase? Yes

12) Anatomicals Bergamot and Green Ginger Body Butter - This went on smoothly and had a great scent. Really liked it!
Repurchase? Yes

13) Swisspers Make-Up Pads - I thought I'd give this a go, considering that I wanted to try something new, but it left fluffy bits on my skin.
Repurchase? No

14) OPI by Sephora Black Crackle - This has dried up and I figured that there wouldn't be any use in putting polish thinner into the bottle.
Repurchase? Loved it, but faddy, so no

15) L'Oreal Infallible Foundation in Golden Beige 140 - If you want all day foundation that doesn't look cakey, this is your girl!
Repurchase? Yes!

16) Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask - A fun and not too sticky face mask that's easy to use without being an issue at removal time.
Repurchase? Yes

17) Elf Tone Correcting Powder - Not the best for hold, so not a great one for Summer. 
Repurchase? No

18) Charles Worthington Intense Rescue Melting Balm - See full review here. A great one to pop on while waiting for the face mask to kick in.
Repurchase? Likely

19)The Face Shop Mini Pet Floral Hand Cream - See full review here. Cute, and while fun, not the richest for my prone to dry skin.
Repurchase? No

20) Sasy n Savy Vitamin Enriched Facial Recover Mask - A nice gentle mask for when your skin needs a little something quiet.
Repurchase? Perhaps

21) Innisfree Jeju Peach Hand Cream - Lovely peach scented hand cream with a moderately thick consistency. I really enjoyed using this one!
Repurchase? Yes

22) SK-II Facial Treatment Mask - Disappointingly, much like with the essence itself, I didn't find this to do much for my skin.
Repurchase? No

And of course, we finish with the little empties! I really enjoyed the thickening tonic by Aveda, as well as the La Roche Posay vials and the Bath and Body Works Sea Island Cotton Body Lotion, not to mention Helping Hands by Lush.

What did you chuck out last month?

Review: OPI Fall/Winter 2015 Venice Collection *

I may not be in Venice, but I could certainly be transported there by this gorgeous little 4 pack! This limited edition pack is part of the Venice collection by OPI, which is actually made up of 12 shades, all of which will be joining the rest of the OPI family to become part of the permanent range.

Nailed It! Ft. Deborah Lippmann in Candy Shop

Sometimes, you just need to reach for the sparkles, even though you know it's going to take a hell of a lot of nail polish remover, and even acetone, to get off. 

Deborah Lippmann's Candy Shop is just that - an overwhelming explosion of sparkly fireworks! It's just so pretty in the sunshine! It's a bit like fairy bread on your finger tips. Or hundreds and thousands!

And there you have it - a pain to remove, but ever so cute on the digits.

Did you adorn your nails this weekend?
