Cosmetic

A slightly vast collection of beauty products!

Hi everyone!

So in this post I thought that I would cover a few recent items I have bought over the last few weeks and haven’t had chance to review yet, so with this in mind I thought I would squish a few in one post to make it more digestible! 🙂

Bioré Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser – 

This was a good buy although rather pricey for a cleanser in my opinion as I tend to go for cheaper ones and I think this was like £4-5, although I am super happy with it because it does clean my face well and leaves it fresh and doesn’t dry it out. As for the blemish fighting/complexion clearing side to it, I believe this actually has worked! I have noticed my skin has been a lot better recently after using this for just over a week or so. This is also my first Bioré experience and product as I haven’t ever bought anything from the range before but I can say I will be certainly looking for other products within the range to use after this one!

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser Youth Protect –

This little moisturiser was a impulse buy from boots, it contains royal jelly and bee venom apparently and is free from parabens, sodium laureth sulphate and mineral oils. I primarily bought it because I needed a new moisturiser and I had products before that have contained bee venom and they’ve been really wonderful so I thought this would be the same and it is. It smells like a bit pot of honey and milk and leaves my skin feeling really soft and fresh, which is great!

Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Serum –

So this was probably one of the most pricey things I have bought, I have been looking for a serum for a long time that works really well and is effective however in today’s market mostly all serums are above £10 at least which is a little bit of pain considering most of them come in tiny tubs or tubes! However I really like this serum, you only need a little tiny bit in my opinion to cover the whole face generously and it smells like fruit as well which is a bonus. This and the Bioré face cleanser could be the reason my skin is looking so much better recently because before using these two products my skin looked and felt dry and dull but now I can safely say it is spot free (touch-wood no jinxing!) and soft. Again I’ve never used any of the Nip + Fab products but they’re definitely something I am going to look into long term.

Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Lotion – 

I already mentioned one moisturiser however I bought this one when I realised my other moisturisers haven’t got any sun protection in! I have been going jogging a lot lately and the sun has made its return, so I thought that it was best to maybe get a moisturiser with some protection in it and this one has UVA & UVB protection of all skins types and it was mega cheap so win win!

NOTD – Nail Paint In Cyan Blue (294) By Barry M Review

I wasn’t very interested in painting my nails until I got into secondary school when it was key to always have brightly coloured and vibrant nails, I never really took an interest in Barry M until then and I didn’t really like the brand to start with as I thought it was too runny and didn’t dry quick enough but now years later I am happily buying Barry M nail varnishes with a smile on my face because I love the colours and types! 🙂

So the other week I brought another Barry M nail varnish because I was complaining that I didn’t have any summer colours in my nail varnish collection! So I went and I brought cyan blue which is a light blue but not too light that it turns into a pastel blue.

I love this colour because it is so light and summery, I like blues as well which is probably why I picked it 🙂

Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint (Pomegranate 319) By Barry M

I love painting my nails like many of the thousands of other girls and ladies out there in the world who do too and it is always a constant hard decision about which nail varnish to choose and what shade to wear!

With all different colours and effects coming out on the market everyday I see nail polish and varnish that I adore a lot and would love to have, but of course I cant buy every single one. So the other day I decided to buy Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Pomegranate 319 because I had heard such good reviews about Gelly Hi-Shine on other bloggers pages and such so I thought why not! 🙂

I love the colour, it is a vibrant pink which comes out looking dark but in natural light it looks very bright and to stop mine chipping I put two coats on because I find that stops nails chipping so easily when you do not have any glossy coats to apply.

I use to dislike Barry M a few years ago because I found their nail varnishes to be quite runny but in the last year I have brought quite a few as they’re becoming a quick favourite of mine! I certainly would wear this shade again as I think it is a great summery hint 🙂
