Beauty News: A Nail Polish to Detect Date Rape Drugs!

Four amazing students from North Carolina State University have invented an incredible clear nail polish that could potentially save your life!


 This ingenious polish - named Undercover Colors - does away with the need to carry test strips with you (which I know most of us don't!), and simply changes colour when you dip a finger into a drink that contains Rohypnol or GHB, both date rape drugs, to alert you to their presence! Personally, I couldn't be more happy that this nail polish has been created, and I will certainly be stocking up on these babies for me and my friends!

Review: Halo Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Although I try my best to remove my eye makeup properly every night, recently at University we had a solid week of end-of-year parties and I knew at the end of the nights I would need something simple and quick to remove my makeup, so I picked up this little pack of remover pads from Halo.


Glamour Beauty Edit Box!

The only magazine I subscribe to and read regularly, and have done since I was around 13, is Glamour Magazine, which is always full of amazing editorials, fashion and beauty, so it follows that I would grab the opportunity to purchase a beauty box packed full of products picked by Glamour's lovely beauty editor with both hands.


Review: Benefit Fine One One Lip & Cheek Colour

We all love a cheek colour to add some dimension to your face and brighten up your complexion, but sometimes it can be a bit of a faff to apply it perfectly, so I knew when Benefit released their all-in-one brightening blush, highlighter and lip colour it would be a winner for me.

Review: La Roche-Posay Physiological Cleansing Milk

When this cleansing milk came through my door, I was slightly concerned that it would not work on my combination skin due to being aimed at makeup removal for dry skin. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with the results.


Review: Vichy Idéalia Smoothing & Illuminating Cream

After discovering the Vichy Idéalia Life Serum (review here) and BB Cream (review here) and absolutely loving them, when this lovely cream was sent through my door from the same collection I couldn't wait to give it a go. It's safe to say I haven't been disappointed...

Review: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair II

I had promised myself since I was around thirteen years old that once I turned 21, I would add Estée Lauder's world-renowned ANR to my skincare arsenal in order to reap the rewards of its super effective, skin perfecting formula to prevent wrinkles. Obviously at the time I thought 21 was really old (ha!), but I stuck to my word and tried it out nevertheless...

Review: Avon Solutions Hydra Beyond Hydrating Gel Cream

I've been using the Avon Solutions Hydra Beyond Cream for around a month now, and I have a confession to make - I've fallen truly, madly, deeply for it! Used as a day or night cream, the gel formula is perfect for my combination skin, meaning this product has earned a permanent place in my skincare cabinet.


Review: Roger & Gallet Bois d'Orange Huile Sublime Dry Oil Spray

It's no secret I'm a fan of a dry oil, but throw in a gorgeous bottle, a delicious scent and a light and hydrating texture, and you've got a multi-tasking dream for face, body and hair!

Review: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo


La Roche-Posay's Effaclar Duo has been hailed in the beauty world as the product to heal and prevent blemished skin, and since purchasing it months ago it has become a firm staple in my skin routine and I would go so far as to call Holy Grail! That's right, this baby has reached the elusive HG status for this blogger, and I will not be looking back.
