Beauty || This Is War- Spots! The Essentials.

Bad skin days grace us all with their presence and make us feel pretty down.  (Oh ok,I would even push it and say I have actually cried and refused to leave the house, such a drama queen)

I wish I had the option of living under a rock until it sorts itself out, but unfortunately every day life doesn't let that happen and you can`t just stop everything because the mother of all spots has descended bang in the middle of your fod.

Beauty || Oh Asos I adore you.

Who doesn't love Asos? It literally has everything you need to create any look your heart desires.

I find my nights just scouring their website wanting nearly everything. With free delivery and returns it also makes it a little easier to HIT that checkout button.

At the moment there isn't a promotional code knocking about. I have looked EVERYWERE but Asos assures all us shopaholics one will be available soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

It`s very rare they don't have a code of some sorts and the majority are pretty decent ranging from 10% to 25% discounts.

So for now you can drool over "my picks". I think this gorgeous spring/summer ensemble is just perfecto for any occasion from a trip to town shopping, a dinner out or a BBQ.

Beauty || Review || Charlotte Tilbury Velvet Underground Lipstick

As part of my clearing everything out quest and developing a habit of selling everything I own on eBay. (Literally everything, my baby boy grows out of something and I have it off him, papped and listed on eBay in one minute flat) So a little note if you have anything you want to sell, well please do hide it before I get to it first!

Beauty || Review || The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum in Oil

This serum in oil by The Body Shop has took the beauty world by storm the past couple of months since it's launch. With all the major YouTube gurus and Caroline Hirons marking their stamp of approval for this serum in oil I had to give it a go. 

My skin prefers an oil to a moisturiser of a night but I was a bit confused, what is a serum in oil? Well apparently it's just that, a two in one that offers the benefits of a serum and oil in one product. Marketed for all the lazy bones out there (me).

The Body Shop say:

Wake up to beautiful skin with new Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil, a technical innovation combining the power of a serum and oil to indulge, replenish and recharge skin with moisture overnight.
  • 8h beauty sleep for your skin
  • Skin feels recharged, replenished and softer
  • Skin looks fresher, rested and more radiant
  • Our highest concentration of wheatgerm oil
  • Non-greasy, fast-absorbing formula
I just love the scent of the Vitamin E range by The Body Shop and this is no different it's scent is so fresh and lovely (maybe a bit much of a scent) It's a light oil that dries a lot quicker than any oils I have tried before. I am thoroughly enjoying using this and for £12 I don't think I will be without a bottle now. 

It`s a oil that I could use every night opposed to the thicker and more intense ones I own (Clarin`s Lotus Oil I am looking at you, You know I love you) This is targeted for night use but you could (if you want) so use this of a morning as it dries on the skin a lot quicker than usual facial oils.

My skin is super sensitive and if it doesn't like something well it tells me loud and clear with spots and dry skin calling my face their new home (yak) but no complaints as yet. My skin is feeling rehydrated and smooth. My skin feels and looks pretty much the same as when I have been using other more high end oils. I really like it and I have been using it every night for the past 10 days and can highly recommend giving it a whirl for the bargain price that is £12. My only complaint about this product is all the fragrance ingredients jam packed in it. There is 10 YES 10 no wonder it smells so frigging good! Replace these with some ingredients that are more beneficial to our skin The Body Shop then I think this would just be perfecto.
