PolaNight Teeth Whitening Update

I know its been a very very long time since i last spoke about Pola Night but if I'm honest i haven't used it that much :o Shock horror....I know! Its just very hard with my job to be able to sit with this in for a few hours as I'm either working or sleeping haha so i have made a deal with myself....I'm going to try and do this as much as possible while I'm away! So i haven't forgotten about it and i will eventually do a review on this as promised :)

Sorry its taken a while

First Maxi :)

Hey everyone. So some of you may be aware but i am off to the Philippines on holiday next week and i have been running round like a crazy woman trying to get things sorted :) Seeing as i work at the airport the shops still stock alot of summer wear which is really handy if you go away in the winter and you need a bikini or something. So i popped into Accessorize wanting to pick up a straw hat....i found one but it really didn't suit me, but whilst in there i came across in my opinion the most gorgeous maxi dress!! I have never bought a maxi dress before as i thought it really wouldn't suit me but i decided to just give it a go as i love the design on the dress. There are no fitting rooms at the airport so being very daring i just went ahead and bought it praying i would love it when i go home, and yes i do love it very very much! It's just the right length to wear with flip flops. I think you have to be careful with maxi dresses as they can either be too long or too short but this is just right! I know I'm a bit late on this one but they were in last summer and this summer so i think i can get away with it :)

What do you guys think?!

It retails at £45 but i get it at tax free price which was £39.13 :)

I was going to post a picture of me in it but i think i will save that for when i get back from my holiday and i have taken some pictures of me actually wearing it in the Philippines(hopefully with a nice tan)

Really quick short post but i just wanted to share with you 3 Soap&Glory products i picked up recently.Apart from Hand Glove, these are my first ever Soap&Glory products but i thought it was the perfect time for me to try some out seeing as i am going away on holiday and can use them while I'm away and also if you spent £12 or over you got a free "The Scrub Of Your Life" So i got the iFoam body wash and the Peachy Cream Big Butter which i have wanted for sooo long as it smells Devinne!!

Expect a review on these products once i return from the PHILIPPINES hehe!

Dry Shampoo Is Now Coloured?!?

Well, well, well i have literally been waiting about 2 years for this day and it is finally here!!
I got introduced to Batiste Dry Shampoo just over 2 years ago, a girl i worked with at H&M literally swore by the product and would not only use it to refresh her hair but also to give volume. I then jumped on the bandwagon and gave it a try. At first totally loved it couldn't believe i had never discovered this product before but i was only really using it when i really needed to if i ever did. Then shift work came into my life and realising with the job i do you sometimes have to sacrifice washing hair for sleep as you may only get 2 or 3 hours kip if you washed your Batiste has become a bigger part in my life but there was always a slight problem when using the product. I have watched many videos showing how people with dark hair use this product and i use it in exactly the same way and could never understand why no-one had mentioned they had the same problem as me, so maybe some of you out there are going to agree with me on this one....The problem is, having very dark hair and using a white product on your hair?!? For blonde haired people this isn't a problem but for dark haired it is. It was taken me literally forever to work the product in so you couldn't see any white bits that i might as well have just washed my hair haha it looked like i was just going grey, and on many occasion at work people have mentioned to me "oh you have something in your hair" oh no its just this product i put in that makes me go grey haha yeah not tooooo great hey!!



My life is now complete!

It comes in dark and black so of course i went with the dark

It cost slightly more then the normal Batiste tropical or rose at £2.99 but i am totally happy to pay the extra as i love this so much more now. It smells me it smells like mens aftershave haha which i happen to love so its perfect and you cannot see any colour what so ever!!! It just sprays on like its wet you cant see any colour at all and it doesn't take so long to work the product in. This product with out a doubt will always be in my monthly favourites(if i did that haha maybe i should) I'm going back to boots tomorrow to stock up on some more that's how happy i am over some dry shampoo :) ohhh the small things :)

Please check this out and let me know what you all think...Were you as excited as i am :))))

FrontCover Cosmetics Are Back!!!

Think back to last Christmas guys....Thinking??? Well remember when FrontCover Cosmetics were launched in Boots with all the Christmas gift sets?

Well here is the one they released last year!

The colours were amazing such a mix from everyday neutral eye to a bright funky eye! They were extremely pigmented and i loved using them with a bit of Fix+

Now to show you all this years!!!

Its more about glitter this year and softer colours but never the less looks like again such a great palette!
I haven't actually used it yet i just wanted to share this with you all and let you know that at the moment its half price in Boots at £15 so i really recommend you pop out and grab this whilst its still half price!

Please look out for a full review of this product and also hopefully some looks too :)


Perfecting Your Pout!

What with the clocks going back last night, British winter has officially started and boy have i felt it on my poor little lips :( So i just wanted to make a quick tip post on how to keep your lips nice and smooth throughout the cold months.

So for smooth, soft lips take a clean damp washcloth and gently rub lips for about 60 seconds to get rid of any dry/rough patches also be sure to keep a small or travel toothbrush in your make-up bag for touch ups throughout the day, just make sure you are brushing your lips gently!!

Stock up on your favourite lip balm/conditioner..apply a vigorous amount at night then keep re applying throughout the day to keep your lips hydrated. My personnel all time favourite has to be Carmex i cannot live without this lip balm.

Hope this helps some of you out there :)

Eyeko Loving

I have had these two products for about 2 months now but when i first bought them i was slightly scared to use them as i felt i didn't really know how to, however i have been using them everyday for the last week and a half but i can definitely tell you that these are two products which will be a permanent fixture in my daily routine :)

You can buy these products from


So shall we get to learn a bit about these products?

Eyeko Tinted Cream:
For radiant skin and a sun kissed glow try NEW Eyeko 3-in-1 Tinted Cream. Treat skin to the same luxuriously whipped texture made with super hydrating Jojoba boosted with antioxidants Vitamins A & E plus Vitamin C for a luminous finish as our No.1 bestseller Eyeko Cream.

Eyeko says: "It's the effortless way to get flawless skin. Dip in and pat on for a subtle glow with light reflecting particles that create instant radiance".

Well i am so happy to have found this product just as winter is drawing!! Throughout the winter i do suffer with such pale dull skin so to know i can pat a small amount of this cream all over my face makes me feel alot happier about winter. I also feel that it makes my foundation work a lot better with my skin colour when i have used this tinted cream. It says it can be used as a moisturiser but i don't feel it is moisturising enough to use just by itself.

Eyeko Cream:
Create a flawless base with Eyeko's 3-in-1 Cream MOISTURISER, HIGHLIGHTER & EYE CREAM in 1!Infused with skin perfecting light reflectors and antioxidant Vitamins A& E plus a Vitamin C boost for a radiant, clear complexion.

Eyeko says: "To get that A-list glow skip foundation and use Eyeko Cream all over focusing on the eye and cheek area for lit from within skin."

CELEBRITY FAVE As Seen In OK Magazine Issue 365: The cute packaging of this glistening moisturiser is just one reason to fall in love with this great lotion. Kylie has great skin anyway, but a layer of this cream will add a bit of lustre."

Well well well, this is my new eye cream LOVE!!!!! Like the Tinted cream it is a 3 in 1 and can also be used as a moisturiser but seeing as it seems to be the same formula again i don't think it will work by itself. I have been using this as an eye cream and a highlighter. Its great to put on after your moisturiser and just before the Tinted cream on your T zone just to lift the areas. Now onto this product as an eye cream...i suffer really bad with dark circles its probably hereditary and alot to do with the lack of sleep i get due to shift work but this cream seems to totally lighten my dark circles. I apply my eye cream at night then in the morning i use this and love it, literally now couldn't live without it.


Bad Skin Days!!

So i just wanted to share with you my 'holy grale' skin care products to get me through those breakout days!! As a little girl going through my teens i was so lucky to never suffer with bad skin or acne but suddenly as i have turned into a big girl my skin is suddenly starting to get worse and worse...I mean i haven't got bad acne i just suffer with break out which really isn't too bad but seeing as i have never suffered i feel its kinda worse than it actually is :)

Onto the products:
Clean&Clear Deep Warming Scrub...around £3.99
Clean&Clear Blackhead Clearing Cleanser..around £2.99
Freederm Zone Balancing Moituriser...£4.99
Freederm Spot Gel...£5

Chanel Bronze Universel

Hi everyone! Wow it feels like i haven't made a post in ages...Wait a minute i haven't :( I'm so sorry guys things have been a bit manic seeing as i am going away for 3 weeks in a week and 4 days so i have been trying to get everything ready for that, as well as trying to get rid of this horrible cold i have at the moment :( I'm going to try and catch up with all my posts before i head of so that when i come back i know I'm all up to date with everything so i can start all my one million holiday posts that there will probably be hehe seeing as there is a FOREVER21 right where i am staying in the Philippines....can you tell I'm excited haha!!!!
Anyway guys lets get on with this post :)
So i know I'm pretty late jumping on the band wagon with this one but this product is something i have been searching high and low since the beginning on my obsession with YouTube videos and Blogs!! This product had such a hype over it when i first starting watching videos but it seems to be THE hardest product to find....even though i do work at the airport i still couldn't get my hands on it, Until 2 days ago :)))))))))))
This is allll thanks to my gorgeous aunt!!!
I popped round to see my cousin and like normal, i did her make-up and hair and we talked about beauty products and all that fun stuff! Then my aunt showed me around her make-up draw where she had the Chanel Bronze Universal lying having no love shown to it as she wouldn't warm to the product so she said that i could have it!!!!!! Ahhhh i was extremely excited...sad i know!!
I have only used it say three times and so far LOVE it i just wish that i had it over the summer as my skin is slightly pale now but this is defiantly a product i will be taking on holiday with me and hopefully continue to use when i return as i hope to have a lovely tan :)
I have just be using on the parts of my face the light catches the most...for head, nose, temples and slightly on my jaw bone but not as a contour! I love the consistency of this product and it smells like holiday too.

So happy i am no longer a Chanel Bronze Universal Virgin :))))
Thank you Aunty xxxxxxxxxxxx
