With summer around the corner, it will soon be time to ditch the cardis and flash the flesh in summer dresses, cami’s and shorts! However, as I don’t tan naturally, and I don’t “embrace my naturally pale skin” like everyone likes to tell me to (I like being tanned!), the only option for me is to fake tan! Continue reading
As a makeup fanatic, KIKO has been one of my favourite stores since I first discovered it in Barcelona many years ago. I have many memories of wanting to buy everything, trying to work out how much space I had in my case for baskets full of products! Now they have stores all over the UK and we don’t have to travel far for our KIKO fix! The brand is known for its high quality products at affordable prices. Continue reading
There aren’t many high quality skin care products that will give you change from a fiver, so when I saw these sheet masks by Tony Moly in Sephora for €1.99 I was amazed. Not wanting to miss out on a bargain I threw a few in my basket, not really thinking much of them. Then I tried them…
First, a bit about the brand. TONY MOLY is a fun Korean skincare brand that has cute and quirky products ranging from Egg Pore Blackhead Steam Balm (shaped like an egg) to Banana Dalcom Lip Balm (shaped like a banana). However, gimmicky it is not. With innovative ingredients and scientific technology, the products are really good.
With a wide range of masks to choose from, I went for Avocado for Nutrition, Ginseng for Elasticity, and Pearl for Luminating.
What TONY MOLY say:
Bring tired skin back to life! Specially crafted with our Double action system, a 2-layer pulp sheet enriched with powerful natural ingredients which work to combat signs of fatigue and irritated skin, fast. Leaving skin healthier, glowing and softer with long lasting hydration, all in as little as 20 minutes.
Ginseng: Natural Ginseng Extract improves skin-elasticity for more youthful-looking complexion!
Pearl: Infused with Pearl Extracts to provide clarity and glow to skin
Avocado: Avocado Extract with micro emulsion-based essence nourishes skin and revitalizes complexion.
I thought these sheet masks were amazing quality for money, I think they really made a difference to my skin, especially the Avocado one. My skin felt so soft and nourished after using it. The masks had a lot of product in them as well, and they really sunk into the skin. There are so many to choose from, so there will be a perfect one for you no matter how your skin is acting. I loved the packaging as well, they were a bit different from other facemasks. Overall, for €2 they were a great bargain and will definitely be buying more on my next trip to Sephora!
Anyone who knows me or follows my blog/Instagram, will know I have a long-running, serious eyebrow issue. The issue being – I HAVE NO BROWS. Well, I do but they ain’t pretty. It all started when I was a bushy-browed 15-year old and I went to the beauticians for an eyebrow wax and she SCALPED me. Like literally 90’s pencil thin brows. AAGH. Continue reading
Dear Spring, I am writing to let you know that we are ready for you whenever you are… Is anyone else totally over this weather? It feels as though it has been THE longest winter ever – even in Barcelona. And I don’t know about you, but this weather has totally wreaked havoc with my skin.
When a bee is in your hand, what’s in your eye? Beauty. Because beauty is in the eye of the bee-holder. Hehehe! Okay, sorry about that I couldn’t help it. Sorry, let’s start again.
When a LUSH Scrubee Body Butter Bar is in your hand, what’s in your eye? LOVE HEARTS cos it’s soooo damn cute! Continue reading
With the winter weather hopefully behind us I thought it would be the perfect time to write a post compiling all my favourite lip care products. I often suffer from dry lips, which is a) uncomfortable at times and b) a NIGHTMARE when wearing a matte lip…eek!
