Benefit Christmas 2016 | Blushin' Babe

Yes, It's October and yes, I'm hitting you with the 'C word'. Brands seem to have really upped their games this year, and admittedly I've treated myself to far too many gift sets! One of my favourites this year is this lovely Blushin' Babe gift set from benefit. Priced at £29.50 the set contains five bestselling blushes (Sugarbomb, Rockateur,Coralista, Dandelion and Hoola), Watt's up! highlighter, They're real push-up liner and they're real mascara.
Housed in this cute tin, this little set contains pretty much everything you need (minus base products) for a full face of makeup. Personally I think this is a wonderful way to try more of what Benefit have to offer. Individually these blushes sell for over £20, and while the ones in this set may be smaller, I  never come close to finishing products, so am over the moon to be able to try all 5 for under £30!
I've been using this for the past couple of weeks and have been LOVING it! It's nice to be able to switch my blush up everyday!
This would make a wonderful gift set (or even a treat to yourself!) and can be found at selected retailers including Boots - Where you can currently get 10% off premium beauty when you buy two items.

The £3 Strobing kit you need to try!

When I saw these Ps..Strobe Crayons I had to pop them into my basket because 1. The shades looked lovely and 2. They were a steal at £3 - that's a pound a shade! I have to say, Primark have certainly impressed me with their packaging here! These three come in a handy plastic pouch, which includes a little picture guide on the back for those unaware how they work. The crayons themselves are well designed, twisting up to reveal more product. In addition to this the bottom also corresponds with the shade inside. This means that no matter how you store them, you'll be able to see what shade you're reaching for. A must if your collection is as big as mine.
The product itself glides softly onto the skin, leaving bundles of colour as you can see above Although when blended these are simply stunning on the skin and last well. While personally I don't care too much for sand (the white shade), Rose and Golden are simply beautiful and worth way more than £3, even individually. 
I'm so glad I gave these a go and cant wait to try more from the Ps.. range! Have you tried anything from Primark beauty yet?

LUSH Big Shampoo | Worth the hype?

If there's one product that's always intrigued me from Lush it's this sea salt shampoo. Priced at £12.75 for a 330g tub this is hardly the cheapest shampoo on the market, but here's why its worth all 1275 pennies! On opening the tub you are greeted by the most wonderful clean smell, a smell that remains in my hair all day! As you can see the texture of this shampoo is unlike majority of others on the marketing, somewhat resembling a scrub. While some may find this scary I find that I really enjoy the feeling of the see salt on my scalp. I personally find that it helps exfoliate the scalp without being to harsh and is something you get used to pretty quickly.

I find that with this product less is more, it lathers so well that you only need a tiny amount meaning that this tub has lasted months (and still has around a third left).I was the sort of girl who washed her hair everyday, but this completely changed that allowing me to go two, even three days. Something unheard of with other shampoos. It gives my fine flat hair that extra bit of lift and I have finally embraced  my natural waves!

 While I was sceptical of spending so much on a shampoo, this is well worth the money for me and is something I will continue to use!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+] Unifiant

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+] Unifiant
 I've always been keen to try something from La Roche-Posay's impressive line up, so when they added a tint of colour to their infamous Effaclar Duo I knew I had to give it a go. When this came in the post my skin was having a rubbish time (probably induced by my new 50 hour working week) making me the ideal candidate to put this to the test. I don't have time in the mornings, so I love that my Effeclar Duo (+) Unifiant* is just an easy step to giving me a little more of a 'done' look in seconds. I simply apply with my fingers like a moisturiser and I'm good to go. This just gives me a little more coverage, blurring out my imperfections, or acts really nicely under a foundation. I've also noticed a huge change in my skin, within the first week it had calmed down so much, an effect that seems to be lasing!
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+] Unifiant
I've been really impressed by this product and cant wait to try more from La Roche-Posay! You can find this for £16.50/40ml at selected stores including Boots. I promise you wont be disappointed.
