Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation - Shade Soft Beige 200 Review ♥


A product I've been loving at the moment is the Rimmel Stay Matte foundation. I got it a few weeks ago now when I went into my local Superdrug and noticed a stand advertising it and since I suffer from oily skin, I thought I would give it a try. Most matte foundations I've tried in the past normally wear off after a few hours and my skin ends up looking really shiny so I honestly didn't expect too much different from this one.

On my face with no concealer and no powder!

When I was in the store buying this product, I was really unsure of what shade to buy. I found the Porcelain and the Ivory was far too pale for my skin tone and I thought I had found the perfect match with Soft Beige but since getting home and trying it on without the bright lights in Superdrug, I think I might have brought a shade too dark. 

The product itself I really have fallen in love with. The liquid mousse formula is so soft and easy to apply, it takes mere minutes to apply all over my face. It felt very lightweight but also gave me perfect coverage throughout the day. Even at the end of the day of being at work, I found most of the foundation was still on with only a little shininess around my nose which for someone with oily skin, I'd call a success!

Luckily, going back to shades, when I went to the Clothes Show in December, in the Cosmopolitan goodie bag, they were giving away a small sample tube of this foundation but in the Ivory shade, which after trying did end up being too light for me which I predicted. Next time I went into Superdrug, I brought myself another tube but in the True Ivory shade, a little bit darker than Ivory and a little lighter than Soft Beige = Perfect Match for me!

The foundation is on sale at Superdrug, Boots and many other retailers for £5.99 which isn't too expensive considering you don't need that much of the product to cover your whole face. Also Superdrug currently have it on a 3 for 2 offer which I made use of and brought the Stay Matte Blusher and the Scandaleyes Lyra Flexi Mascara.

KHS Hair Care: Home Keratin Moisturising Kit ♥


A product I've been really excited about trying for a while is the KHS Mac Professional Home Keratin Hydrating Moisture Kit. I brought on a little stall from Clothes Show Live a month ago but had actually forgotten about it until now. Since my hair wasn't extremely damaged and just a little dry around the ends, the sales person advised me to buy the moisturising kit instead of the kit specially for damaged hair.

For all of you that don't know, Keratin is an extremely strong protein which is a major structural component in our hair strands. The perfect way to describe it is that's similar to the bones in our body, without it we'd just be limp and lifeless. These keratin kits help restore the structure of our hair after the harsh chemicals in hair dyes have stripped the keratin out.

The kit comes with 3 little bottles for 3 different stages. 

Step 1- Clarify: Apply the Shampoo to wet hair and gently massage into hair. Rinse throughly and repeat process.

Step 2 -Moisture: Apply the moisturising system (bottle 2) gradually into the hair, starting with the most damaged area of the hair and work into the hair until there are no more tangles
Do not rinse out step 2.

Step 3- Rinse: Apply 1/2 bottle of the moisturising system (bottle 3) over the top of Step 2. Leave to develop for 10-20 minutes. Rinse throughly, blowdry and style hair as normal.


As you can see from the pictures above, there is a massive difference to my hair. To start with my hair was quite dry and I found that a few hours after showering, my hair already looked weak and lifeless no matter how many products I put on my hair so I was really impressed with the after photo and how soft my hair looks. My hair now feels healthier and actually has a shine to it as opposed to just being really dull and limp.

I'm really impressed with this kit as it had made such a great improvement on my hair condition. It was really easy and simple to follow through and no extra equipment was needed. 

Since I brought from the Clothes Show, I'm not sure where they are sold but I did find a website that sells this kit for £15.99 (link here) which I think is a reasonable price. I paid £8 for mine as the sales person gave me and my friend a "deal". Although I'm not sure if I would go through the hassle of ordering myself another one of these kits, but I would definitely be on the lookout for any other Keratin treatment kits as I love the way it's made my hair feel and really made me realise how much I should take the time to look after my hair.
