💕Received PR from @joahboxx a K-beauty Box Subscription service and I wanted to show you guys their June -picks!💕
💚The Plant Base – Time Stop Collagen Ampoule – now this looks interesting. An ampoule containing Adenosine, Vitamin A and E and 76.53% of Mushroom Extract to provide anti-ageing benefits! Also includes other hydrating and soothing ingredients such as HA and Panthenol and Cica. There is 20ml in here (wish there was more) but I guess you’ve got to be sparing with the application. I have already opened this and am rearing to go to incorporate this into my routine. My main want from this is to improvethe hydration level of my skin.
❤Air-Fit Velvet Lipstick by #RiRe – I have already opened this and have swatched. What lovely pigment and staining capabilities. It did come off when I ate my dinner though! My sister stated it as a lovely ‘every day’ lipstick shade (shade 2). The feeling is ‘velvet’ so it’s not particularly hydrating, but isn’t sticky, is bright and pigmented.
🧡 #ultrux Galactomyces Drylock Mask – 69% galactomyces – nourishes the skin. It’s supposed to be a highly saturated mask that retains the ampoule to spit back as much product onto your skin as possible. Let’s see!
💖 #Missha Length OR Volume Boost Cara (A Line friends edition) – I have already opened this (couldn’t resist the pink packaging. I tried it on and once again my sister said it made my eyelashes look a lot more fluttery. I love the wand (it’s like a brush)– I’m thinking of reviewing this alongside the lipstick as an impromptu makeup post – thoughts??
🤔Are there any products here you particularly would like me to review? Please comment down below!🤔
HOT LIPS 👄 *Gifted
I wasn’t going to post a pic until tomorrow when the rest arrive (I’ve been bad) but I got too excited. @ctilburymakeup have kindly gifted me 3 of the new Hot Lips 2 Collection and I almost did an excited wee when I opened the parcel. Swatches of the FULL collection (obvs not the white one as I think that’s going to be clear) coming very soon! Charlotte has also pledged £1million to @womenforwomen which is amazing. 💄 #ukbblogger#discoverunder50k#itsallangela#charlottetilbury#hotlips2
You guys! We just got two new eye liner shades in this beautiful dark blue and shimmering gold. I love them! I never thought to combine them into an eye look but of course, Siara magically creates this beautiful “Shooting Star” 💫

I can’t believe I didn’t know that I needed a shimmering gold eye liner. Fact: I do 💛
Summer Ball season is over and I still can’t get over how bad “The Greatest Ball Ever” was. I’m currently waiting for a refund 😂

It’s officially essay writing week starting today but given the busy few days I’ve had, I’ve decided to take it easy and have a day to catch up on life admin and organisation. It’s been a productive day so far but I feel ready for the rest of the week!

We’re lucky we’re in the U.K. occasionally because the limited edition shades tend to last a little longer here. We still have a handful of Midnight Muse LipSense shades left 👍🏻

For a bold blue lip, choose Midnight Muse!

I had a lovely couple of days celebrating my birthday, especially yesterday. I got spoilt with presents and most importantly, spend a lot of time with loved ones 💙
The glow tonic dupe! 💫💫💫 So if you’ve been living under a rock the last few weeks and haven’t heard about the sensational dupe Lacura healthy glow glycolic Toner then here is what you need to know:
If it ain’t obvious it’s a dupe of the Pixi glow tonic but only a fraction of the cost the Lacura toner is available at @aldiuk and retails for £5.99
I’ve been using this product for two weeks and I’m so impressed! The two key ingredients are two of my favourite, Aloe Vera and Ginseng.
Anybody who knows me will know I bang on about the benefits of Aloe Vera and how it’s mother nature’s skin medicine and best natural hydrant, using it via tonic is a quick and effective boost to repair dehydrated skin. The ginseng element revitalises skin and makes your face appear more energetic.
If your unfamiliar with glycolic acid I would recommend reading up on it, it’s a recent skincare sensation that counteracts blemishes and heals acne prone skin, the toner contains a 5% measurement of the acid which is effective yet gentle enough to use every day.
My skin is blemish prone so I use THE ORDINARY salicylic acid also available from @beautybaycom I use this as a serum before moisturiser, it’s definitely worth researching this ingredient as it is in the majority of blemish prone ranges out there. I use the acid directly on effected areas.
My moisturiser this evening is Primer oil from @smashboxcosmeticsuk available at @bootsuk I use two drops on my hands and pat over my skin. This oil is a sensation for any one with dry skin or anyone who just wants to add some natural glow.
Sometime with skincare we try so hard to focus on insecurities we can end up drying our skin out, finishing every other day with an oil has been key for me. #crueltyfree#cf#skincare#lacura#aldi#theordinary#smashbox#bbloggeruk#blemish#acne#oily#mua#makeupdupe#pixi#salicylicacid#glycolic#beautyblogger#beauty#glow#skinroutine#boots#ukbblogger#lifehack#bargain
I had a bit of time so I thought I’d share about my skincare....
Finding the right skincare can be so hard, especially as I’ve found my skin needs different products throughout the year. What was working in the cooler months doesn’t necessarily work during summer and now I’m in my late 30s the inevitable odd lines are appearing 🙈
As you know I often share with you in my stories what skincare and make up I’m loving as I get messages all the time asking me what I use. @chemistuk got in touch and sent me and the kids a few things to try including this range of @avene_uki skincare. Gift
I’d not used Avene before but my mother does and loves it so I’ve been trying these for the last few months alongside my everyday skincare regime which includes my faves @dermalogicauk Pre-Cleanse, Daily Microfoliant, Sound Sleep cocoon (I work with @dermalogicauk but also buy these products-have done for 9 years) @tropic_skincare_with_wendy Fruit Peel @pixibeauty Glow Tonic @bobbibrown Vitamin Rich base which I use as a moisturiser mixed with a pump of @elixier_london_beauty 24k gold serum (gift)
I absolutely love the @avene_uki Cleanance Mask which I use once a week. It’s exfoliating particles unblock pores & help reduce blemishes and the Avène thermal spring water provide soothing and anti-irritating effects.
The gentle cleansing lotion is great for sensitive skins but as I’m always completely honest I’m more of a wash with water kind of girl rather than lotions.
The Extremely Rich compensating cream is plant based and good for dry sensitive skin but was a bit rich for me. My mom was happy though as she loves these products so she’s using them as it’s suits her skin perfectly 👌🏼 @chemistuk stock so many of our favourite beauty brands like @childsfarm@bloomandblossomuk@batiste_hair which we all know is a godsend for us Mamas along with lots of other kids products like @munchkin_uk so it’s a great place to get everything you need in one go!
I’ve just started the @pixibeauty 30 day #pixiglowstory so I’ll let you know how I get on. I’m a bit nervous to change my skincare completely but as I love the @pixibeauty products I already use I’m going to give it a go! Gift

I haven’t been very present on here lately as I’ve been focusing on my family and real life.
Sometimes I feel it’s important to take a step back from social media and focus on the things in life that matter. Otherwise you get to wrapped up in trying to be perfect when perfect doesn’t actually exist.

AD It’s @sainsburys 150th Birthday and Claire Ptak who was put in the global spotlight last year for baking the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has created this delicious celebratory Citrus and Blossom cake to mark the special occasion 💓
So with it being Valli’s 3rd Birthday too even though it’s a while since I’ve been able to do anything more advanced than fairy cakes and cookies I decided to give it a go and bake it for her party! ✨
Having not baked anything like this for a while I did have back up but thankfully the recipe was so simple to follow and it turned out great! Valli’s face lit up when I showed her and it went down well with all her party guests!
It’s a lovely cake for summer so light and fresh with a sweet edge from the crème fraîche frosting.
The recipe is on the Sainsbury’s website so if you fancy giving it a go I’ve put the recipe in my stories, if I can do it I’m sure you can too! 🍰
Don’t worry if you don’t have the time to bake the cake yourself - you can always grab a slice in-store at Sainsbury’s cafes across the country for a limited time only! #sainsburys150#ad
As gorgeous as this bath bomb looks the results was very disappointing! I hate writing negative reviews but I will always be 100% honest.
Whilst this bath bomb does look gorgeous with the little lips on top, I would recommend you stay far away from it. I placed this product under the running warm water and instantly the bath water just went a dirty brown colour which I definitely didn’t fancy bathing in! The red lips don’t dissolve and just skin to the bottom overall it looked disgusting. The smell was too much for me it smelt of really sickly chocolate. Unfortunately I didn’t bathe in this and did just empty the water out.
Such a shame as I enjoyed the last ones I’ve used by this range! 😕
