Elegant Touch - Constellation False Nails.

Hello everyone, I hope you all are well! Today I am reviewing something that I never thought I would review.. False nails. I have only ever had used them twice in my life and that was over 6 years ago, and never used them since as I just could not get on with them. However after seeing these rose gold beauties I don''t know how I was meant to walk past them!

Toni&Guy - Nourish Reconstruction Mask.

Hi everyone, I hope you had a lovely weekend! Now we all love a good face mask and most of us have one in our weekly routine, but hair masks are usually forgotten about. However I think the Toni&Guy Nourish Reconstruction Mask could change this.

Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge.

Hello everyone, I hope you all are well! Today I am going to be reviewing this Miracle Complexion sponge from Real techniques. Now I am a big fan of beauty sponges and loved my beauty blender literally to death but I couldn't justify spending £16 on a small sponge whilst on a student budget, so when I saw this sponge in boots for just £5.99 I couldn't wait to see how it compared!

Hi everyone, I hope you've all had a lovely week! Today I am going to review this gorgeous hand cream that was gifted to me by Bee Inspired when I last saw them at my local farmers market.

Hello again everyone! Today I am continuing on from Wednesdays blog post  with my nail care routine, finishing of course with my top coat. I am so late to the Seche Vite game it's unbelievable.

Botanics - Radiant Youth Hydrating eye cream.

Last year I discovered the importance of eye creams and have tried several to find the right one for me. Your eyes are always one of the first parts of your body to show the signs of aging due to the skin being so delicate, so it is important to look after them. So after a couple of months trying the Boots Botanics Hydrating eye cream I'm ready to give my verdict.
