Boohoo Wishlist // #1 Dotty

1. Alisha Deep V Neck Spotty Skater Dress £25.00

I love this polka dot skater dress, the white dots are so big and make such an impact. I really love how versatile this dress could be, worn on a night out or dressed down to wear casually during the day.

This dress is a little bit different from the usual type of dresses I like. However there is something that attracted me to this dress. I really like the incorporation of spots and stripes in this dress and also the sleeves.  

I love how this dress is very casual and would be perfect paired with a pair of boots and a smart blazer.

Vichy Normaderm Deep Cleansing Gel...

This is the Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel from Vichy Laboratories. This particular product is part of the Normaderm category by Vichy, which is their anti-imperfection range.

I have been using this cleansing gel for a while and it is now an essential part of my skin care routine. I use this product once in the morning and once in the evening, to wash away excess dirt and make-up.  

Vichy products are available from Boots, which is where I usually purchased this Cleansing gel. For a 200ml bottle of the Deep Cleansing Purifying Gel  it is £7.87 and I have found that one bottle of this product has lasted me quite a good length of time.

My skin feel completely clean and refreshed after using this cleansing gel. And the appearance of my skin, as far as spots and blemishes are concerned, has improved greatly since beginning to use it.

Have you tried any Vichy Products???

Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Nail Polish Review

(From left to right) Frutti Petutie Mermaid's Tale Pedal to the Medal)

So today I thought I would review these Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Nail polishes. I purchased two of these nail polishes from Superdrug a while back and the other (Pedal to the Medal) I received as a gift.

Each of these nail polishes are £6.99, which I suppose is quite expensive compared to other brands and nail polishes. However they are quite big bottles and have actually lasted ages!

My favourite is the Mermaid's tale, not just because of it's name, but the blue and green flakes go so well together, which I think creates such a cool effect! 

What do you think of these Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Nail Polishes???
Have you tried any of the shades?

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder Review...

When I wear my foundation my skin can look a little oily, much to my annoyance! So using a pressed powder or setting powder is most certainly a must for me! I have actually tried quite a number of pressed powders from different brands in the past.

With this product, I brought it out with me once, but when I checked my make-up (to my surprise) I did not need to touch it up! My make-up looked the same from when I had first put it on 3 hours previous! And in my books this was very impressive, especially for my skin type!
This product actually states that it is good for 'up to % hours shine control,' and I would say in my opinion this statement would be quite accurate.

I would say that if you did reapply this product, it may become caked looking. This can happen with many pressed powders if they are over applied, but with this product and it lasting power you really won't have worry about re-applying it!

This Rimmel powder is actually £3.99 from Superdrug. Which I actually think is a reasonable price for, in my opinion, a great quality product.

Nivea Pure& Natural Moisturising Day Cream Review...

I purchased this Nivea Pure & Natural Moisturising Day Cream from Superdrug a little while go. I have used a couple of Nivea skin care products in the past, as they really are brilliant moisturisers! I also find that they really work well to keep my skin looking healthy and moisturised.

During the winter months my skin really dries out and this product has really helped my skin to to become properly moisturised. When I am not planning on wearing make-up a tend to use a lot more if this product. And after applying it, I haven't have any problems putting make-up on, on top on it.

I know that a lot of people don't like some Nivea products as they can at times make your skin too oily, however my skin is quite dry that this really isn't a problem for me!

What is your favourite essential skin product??

Chi Chi Dresses...

Hello There!

This is a very late post! Back in September I purchased a dress from Chi Chi London for my 21st Birthday! This is the dress I choose, which may I add was a very hard decision as there are so many lovely, pretty dresses on their site! 

The dress I wore was the Alicia dress which was £49.99. The dress was is so beautiful and was totally my type of dress!

Here just a couple of other dresses I have been lusting over for quite some time, and it makes it even better that these dresses are on sale and have great price reductions!!


                                                                    CHI CHI FIONA DRESS

I would most certainly recommend Chi-chi to anyone who is looking for a lovely dress. They have such a wide selection of dresses to suit everyone, whether it be for a formal, birthday party or wedding there is a dress for every occasion!

EcoTools Flawless Face Set Review...

Eco-tools make-up brushes are one of my favourite products/ companies as they're brilliant quality and really do stand the test of time! So when I saw that I had received this Flawless Face brush Set I was one very happy girl!!

So the brushes included in this set are (from front to back) 

-Flat Concealer
-Precision Foundation
-Buffing Concealer
-Complexion Blending
-Full Powder

I really love all of the brushes, but my favourite brushes are the Flat Concealer and the Full Powder. The Flat concealer is brilliant for applying concealer in areas which need more attention for example under eyes and around the nose area. The Full powder brush is absolutely brilliant as I have the full size of this brush, and now I don't have to carry the it with me, I can now pop this little brush into my bag!

I love the idea of having these brushes in my make-up bag instead of carrying around big, full size brushes! They are cute, compact and do the job just as we'll as their bigger siblings!!

Rimmel Scandal eyes Mascara Review...

Hello there! 

I thought I would share with you all a product I have been loving recently. This is the Rimmel Scandal eyes  retro glam mascara. I received this product in my stocking at Christmas and I have been using it constantly ever since!

When first opening this mascara, I was quite shocked at how big the application brush is. Most of the mascaras I currently own have relatively small brushes.  
However I have to say that this mascara with it's big applicator perfectly volumises my lashes. I really love how my lashes don't look clumpy with too much product!

Have you tried the Rimmel Scandel eyes mascara??

Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub Review...

Before purchasing this product I hadn't actually tried any of Lush facial products, mainly because I usually stick to my normally Vichy, Simple or Nivea skin care products. However that day I was in the Lush shop, I must have been feeling adventurous to take the plunge and purchase this Ocean Salt Facial scrub.

My skin type is very indecisive at times depending on the weather and etc. So at times my skin is oily and other times it is very, very dry! Now I normally don't use Face scrub very often, as I also think they are going to be too rough or harsh on my skin. 

However this is not the case with this Lush product. The texture is less hard, but more of a grainy texture. After using this product my skin felt so soft and smooth, I was quite surprised. My skin felt fresh and completely clean and at the same time was not dry at all!

The mixed turquoise and light blue, makes this product look as amazing as it smells! This product is made with organic limes, coarse sea salt and grapefruit infusion.The scent is so fresh and exotic, you feel like your being whisked away to an exotic beach on an island!

Price: At the minute this product is £7.25 for 120g and £13.25 for 250g

Have you tried the Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub???

Trying Bourjois...

This is my first time trying any Bourjois products, even though I have always wanted to try these little blush pots each time I walked past them in Superdrug! So just before Christmas, I thought I would treat myself and splurge on three of the Blushes. I say splurge because even thought some may purchase these Blushes all the time, I usually stick to a cheaper blusher from Rimmel so these Bourjois Blushes are slightly more expensive that what I am normally used to!

The three shade I chose were, (from left to right) 54 Rose Frisson, 37 Rose Pompon and 03 Brun Cuivre. The shade of Blush I normally wear for my everyday make-up look is a pink or slightly dark pink shade. I used to wear a darker brown shade, but looking back on it now it defiantly did not suit my skin tone!

So, I opted for these three shade, the 54 Rose Frisson and the 37 Rose Pompon were choices I didn't even have to think about! They are gorgeous shades and exactly what I was looking for in a Blush shade.

So have you tried any Bourjois Blushes??
 What are your favourite shades???

Lush Shooting Stars...

 Christmas Time = LUSH TIME! I love receiving these Lush gift sets at Christmas as they usually contain items I have not yet tried yet! I almost cried at how cute this little Bobble gift set is, I actually think it's the cutest one I have seen around!

This Shooting Stars bobble gift set includes, A Gold Fun bar, Rock Star Soap, Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt and a Shoot for the Stars Bath Ballistic.

 This is the Shoot for the Stars Bath Ballistic, which contain the fragrance of Honey I washed the Kids scent from Lush.

 I was very excited to see this soap within this Lush set, as it is one of my favorite Lush soaps and I absolutely love the shape of this one too!

 This Bath Melt is one I am very curious about and I cant't wait to try. It looks amazing, all sparkly and shimmery and I'm sure it will look even more amazing when introduced with water!

I have seen these Fun Bars every time I have been in Lush and I have been very interested in how exactly you use them! From what I can tell you can use them in a number of different way, on the body or on the hair and in the bath or in the shower. This item is also made with the scent of Honey I washed the Kids, and really does smell wonderful!
