Hylamide Pore Delete Instant Surface Perfector First Impressions!

29 February 2016

Hello!

One of my favourite reasons to sign up to monthly subscription boxes are that they always seem to send you great products that I would never had brought myself. Especially the more expensive and designer brands as I much prefer the bargain brands.

Well in last month's Glossybox, we were all kindly send Hylamide Pore Delete Instant Surface Perfector which for me was definitely one of those products I would never have brought for myself. Mainly for it's £18 price tag!

I was a little unsure on this product to start with as most primer type products I've used in the past have all said to apply BEFORE make-up. But the Hylamide advise you to apply after applying liquid foundation. Is it just me or is that weird?

Anyway in picture one I applied to half of my face after applying my normal foundation and matte-wise I didn't really notice much of a difference. So much so that I can't even tell you what side of my face I actually applied it to. I did however notice that my pores looked a lot smoother and to not big it up too much, invisible. 

Since I have quite oily skin, I always look nice and matte but normally after a few hours my make-up starts to slip, quite literally as well. Amazingly after a few hours my face was still quite shine-free so that in my book is a win!

Overall I would say I'm quite impressed with this perfector. Not only did it mattify my skin and hide my ugly pores, but the lasting time is amazing. I did say above that the price tag is a little steep for me but after seeing such great results, I might just purchase another bottle.

Life | My Mini Room Tour!

26 February 2016

Hello!

A few months ago I asked you guys for help and suggestions for when I redecorated my room and I have finally decided to take some photos to show you the nearly finished results.

My old bedroom before the change was from my teenager years and therefore very girly and pink. I now wanted something a bit more neutral and something to show that I'm an older and maturer adult. If that's possible.

In the end I went with a gorgeous cream and silver theme and so far I love it. There's a few more things that I want to do/add to the room but overall it's nearly done.

GEMS Are A Girl's Best Friend | Gemporia Serenite Ring* ♥

25 February 2016

Hello!

A few weeks ago Karen over at Style Sunrise wrote a themed wish list post featuring the brand Gemporia and in the post she wrote about her favourite pieces from their collection. I really fell in love with one of the rings and I went straight on their website to try and order myself one. Unfortunately the ring was out of stock in my size so I decided to search through the rest of the store to see what else was on offer.

Now I will admit there were so many other gorgeous rings and narrowing it down just seemed impossible! After about an hour of deciding, I eventually picked the Annabella Serenite Sterling Silver Ring.

I went with this ring obviously because it's gorgeous, but mainly because it reminded me of a similar ring that I used to wear when I was at high school. Unfortunately that ring broke and I remember it really devastated me! 

I'm really in love with my ring and it makes me feel like I've made the right decision when I get compliments off my family and friends at work. The gems are really pretty and has a very unique shine unlike diamonds.

As I mentioned above it was very hard to decide on which ring to buy so I can easily see myself going back in a couple of weeks and ordering a few more and possibly start a little collection. There's nothing wrong with that right?

*I was sent this to trial but my opinions are honest and my own.

Sweet Like Candy: Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse Review!

24 February 2016

Hello!

Lip gloss has probably got to be one of my least favourite make-up products purely because I've had too many experiences of super sticky formulas which basically glue my lips together and make it extremely difficult to talk. Oh, and when getting hair stuck on my lips when it's slightly windy. Honestly who would choose to have this?

Well a few months ago now (back in July!) Glossy box sent us all a Lollipops Lip Balm Délicieuse. At first I was really reluctant because of my hatred for lip glosses but I thought I would be fair and give it a chance first before judging.

First of all the scent is just amazing. It really smells like candy on your lips. The formula is clear and quite light and adds just a slight little shimmer to your lips.

The packaging is really girly and I love the little cutesy theme of all of their products. That alone makes me want to and splurge on their website.

Overall I think my hatred for lip glosses is too strong and I still feel really uncomfortable when wearing them. I'm happy I tried it and will keep it encase I ever change my mind but I think I'll stick to lipsticks and lip balms!

Clearasil Ultra Overnight Wash Review!

22 February 2016

Hello!

Skincare and good products has become a really big and important part of my daily routine now. I always thought that since I have oily skin, that a lot of creams and lotions would just irritate my skin and make the problem worse. But with a little research and trust in new products, I have started to include more in my routine.

A few months ago now I made a cheeky order to The Online Pound Store and one of the products that I picked up was the Clearasil Ultra Overnight Wash.

The face wash is advertised as being able to visibly reduce redness and spot size overnight while you sleep! The creamy textured formula is suppose to work continuously through the night, when our skin is actively in the process of cell regeneration, and renewal to help visibily reduce redness and the size of spots overnight. Fancy!

Now I've been using this for a few weeks now, mainly just before I go to bed and apply my nighttime skincare routine and I have to admit that I haven't really noticed much difference the next day. Yes, I know it's not a magically over night potion but after using several days in a row I would have thought I'd have noticed more. Any spots or redness that I did have, settled in the same amount of time it would have normally taken so not that good!

Overall I'm not that impressed but I'm glad I only wasted a pound on this!
