I absolutely love CeraVe. It goes to show, you do not necessarily need to spend a whole lotta Wonga to get those gorgeous results.

Since discovering Obagi some time ago, it has remained on my most-cherished list. In fact, if I had to throw away all my beauty products (which is a lot) and keep only one – this would probably be my saviour. The formula boasts an innovative and highly effective bi-mineral complex, copper-zinc malonate. This will repair and enhances elasticity (often the first thing we notice the loss of). The outcome being fewer lines and wrinkles – hooray!

Featuring:

Bi-mineral complex: zinc and copper renew elasticity, aiding in collagen production.

Malonic acid: The Patent-pending formula helps to trigger skin cell production.

Blueberry extract: Loaded with antioxidants that thwart free radicals.

The Best (And Worst) Films To Watch During Lockdown

Hey Lovelies!

There’s one thing everyone will be doing during lockdown – and that’s watching a lot of films. Here are the best (and the worst) movies to watch during the lockdown situation. Make sure you have ample amounts of chocolate, wine and tissues (and a Netflix subscription, obvs).

1.For A Moving Tear-Jerker: The Sixth Sense

Credit: Wikipedia.org

Starring Bruce Willis, this slightly eerie plot with a truly tragic twist is a real tear-jerker. The film is based on a boy with the ability to see the dead and his struggle with the subsequent bullying and turmoil this life presents. On the off-chance someone reading hasn’t yet seen it; I won’t disclose the ending. However, I will say make sure you watch this with a box of tissues close-by. So sad!

2.For Lots Of Laughs: Deadpool

When it comes to endless hilarity, nothing beats Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds (aka Deadpool) is a supercool superhero who basically kills everyone. This film has to be one of the funniest and it NEVER gets old. I’ve seen it 6 times and still laugh throughout the entirety of the movie. Great mood-lifter – and is it wrong to think Ryan Reynolds is just as sexy like this? I can’t even blame it on lockdown!

3.For Some Male Eye Candy: Oceans Eleven

I never tire of watching Brad Pitt, George Cooney or Matt Damon – and lucky for me, the Oceans films (until the recently tragic change of actors) star all 3 of these gorgeous and very cool guys. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this, but it is definitely a lot. The movie is about a clever casino heist and is action-packed, a great plot and smooth moves. Everything a lonely girl could wish for on lockdown!

Worst:

1.Worst Idea Ever: Contagion (Seriously, what was I thinking?)

Contagion also features Matt Damon. Albeit an older Matt Damon who is battling a virus not unlike the one we are currently experiencing. In fact, the similarities are so freakishly familiar, the deaths and terror all too real, that deciding to watch this film is probably the worst idea, ever. Don’t do it people.

2.Emoji Movie

Should you want to put a film on to watch with your child, don’t opt for this one. Seriously, if you don’t already feel suicidal, you soul will literally be in the pits of despair by the end of this hideously painful movie. Instead, give the new Sonic movie a go – starring Jim Carrey as the bad guy, this film is actually worth the watch.

The Best Foundations For Every Skin Type

Hey Lovelies!

Finding the right foundation for your skin type is a tricky business. Our skin needs change depending on the season. Furthermore, the necessary coverage is dependent on stress, the day after the night before and of course, time of the month.

How are we supposed to consistently get it right? Thankfully, there are some truly iconic beauty brands on our side. Once you discover a foundation that sticks to its promises (and your skin) it feels like you have achieved something truly special. Read on to discover the best foundations for every skin type.

1.Too Faced Born This Way, £23 (30ml), www.lookfantastic.com

If you find yourself in a coverage void of despair, I urge you to give this foundation a go. You will not be disappointed. Currently being hailed on Instagram and by YouTubers alike for its unbelievable powers, this product actually feels and looks like a second skin, but better. Oil-free and available in 28 shades, you are guaranteed to find a hue to match. As for caking? Hell, what caking? The coconut oil and hyaluronic acid combined ensures that all you see are flawless selfie-ready results. This foundation is buildable and achieves medium to full coverage. #Awesomeskin!

2.Oxygenetix Oxygenating Breathable Foundation, £45, www.facethefuture.co.uk

I am seriously smitten with this foundation by Oxygenetix. This brand’s moisturiser and foundation are outstanding. Containing healing properties of Ceravitae, an advanced complex, it provides oxygen to damaged skin cells. In doing so, the skin cells begin their repair process, boosting collagen production and strengthening the skin. This product is perfect for people who have undergone cosmetic procedures or for those who suffer from acne and scarring.

Oxygenetix’s foundation is remarkable. It does everything it promises and more besides. The formula will not cause creases or amplify dry areas. Quite simply, when worn, this foundation looks like you just have incredible skin. It effectively hides flaws and redness whilst aiding skin healing. Available in 14 shades.

For those of you who suffer from dry patches that never seem to just go, this is a must-have product to try. My dry patches are so constant I am seriously considering entering the Guinness book of Records for their literal staying power (see, 2020 I swore I would look for the positives).

Now I have tried this, I have a product to stand up to this bane of my life with its awesome crime fighting abilities. Achieving a luminous finish you will love, the CC cream’s coverage will banish evidence of dry patches and imperfections with ease. Additionally, your beautiful complexion will enjoy a surge of hydration to boot. YES!

The Best New Beauty Products To Make 2020 Even Better!

Hey Lovelies!

2020 is set to be awesome and here are some of the best new beauty products to make the year even better. Check these out:

1.Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Liquid Concealer, £32, www.harveynichols.com

Credit: Harvey Nicols

This is one product I can really get on-board with. If you’ve tried any of the Hourglass concealers (of which there are many), you will undoubtedly have similar high hopes for this one. Spoiler alert: It IS that good!

Winter can totally wreck our makeup look, particularly when the skin is dehydrated, and you want to wear a little more coverage. The result can be that once you’ve applied setting spray, within a few hours you may realise your worst fears; the much-feared creased face appearance. No one wants that. Behold this incredible full coverage concealer.  All 22 shades blend effortlessly and finding no unsightly creases by the time I peered in the bathroom mirror, I announce it is worth its weight in gold. Rejoice in the fact that your complexion will remain flawless for hours (even if you are stood in what feels like  the storm of Jupiter’s Red Spot for hours). A total Godsend! The ONLY place you can currently buy this in the UK, is Harvey Nichols.

2. Ouai Volume Spray, £26, www.theouai.com

The iconic Volume Spray has just had a re-vamp. For those like me who have fine hair and look longingly at the beautiful hair adverts with a heavy heart, this is a product you shouldn’t ignore. During 2019, this product was sold out pretty much everywhere. Now it is back with an even better formula (if you can imagine such a possibility). The awesome priming spray contains added panthenol to further boost shine. Simultaneously, it does an amazing job of transforming fine, limp hair into the enviable appearance of locks that boast volumous joy! Yay!

3.Living Proof, No Frizz Intense Moisture Mask, $38, http://www.livingproof.com

During the harsh weather months hair frizz is just one of those things you can’t avoid. Living Proof haircare products always offer significant improvement to the condition and look of my hair. Their Intense Moisture Mask is every bit as good as their 5-in-1 Styling Treatment. Providing hydrating, nourishing and anti-frizz properties, slap on this mask and your hair will be good enough to audition for a hair commercial. Living Proof, I marvel at your brilliance!

A Note About Urban Decay All Nighter Longwear Foundation Grip, $37

Should you suffer from dry and dehydrated skin (alas, most of us do at this time of year), this is NOT the product to choose. I was super excited to try a primer that would lock in my makeup. Unfortunately, after a couple of hours (on my dry skin) this causes creases to appear around the eye area and a general cakey look. I am certain it would suit those with oily skin types.

Have you tried any of these products and what are your thoughts? Leave me a message and have a happy Friday all xx

I can’t state enough, just how good Kerastase products are and whilst this serum is a tad pricey, it is totally worth it. Combining 4 awesome oils (argan, camelia, corn and pracaxi), the precious formula not only fully protects, but also provides undeniably sleek and shiny hair. Note to self: NEVER RUN OUT! This product is suitable for all hair types.

5.Virtue Lab Polish Un-Frizz Cream, £19 (60ml), www.spacenk.com

virtue labs polish un-frizz creme

Okay, so this is more like a leave-in conditioning cream than a serum, but wow! It delivers great results for straight hair and is ideal for those with unruly curls. Boasting some impressive ingredients such as Alpha Keratin 60ku, pink pomelo, gotu kola and phospholipids, this formula ensures a boost of intense nourishment, whilst enhancing curls, diminishing frizz and smoothing hair.

The 10 Best Films To Watch During The Christmas Break

Hey Lovelies!

Well the festive season is drawing to a close – but there’s still time to get in a few more awesome classic films during the Christmas break. All of the following films are a must-watch, and although I must have seen them 100 times, they NEVER get old.

1.Heat (1995)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

This film is one of my all-time faves and with a cast comprising of Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer and Al Pacino, the movie will never go out of style. One question – why, oh why did the baddies not get away (apart from Val of course)?

2.The Usual Suspects (1995)

Credit: WIkipedia.org

Excuse the low-res image. Another classic, this very clever film will keep you guessing right until the end. Furthermore, you notice more clues each time you watch it.

3.War of the Worlds (2005)

Credit: Amazon

Love this sci-fi film which was originally a sci-fi novel by H.G. Wells – and if aliens were to invade, this is probably the way it would go. Also, Tom Cruise never seems to age! What’s that all about? What can I say, other than this is an awesome film everyone should see?

4.Oblivion (2013)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

Are we an effective team? No, we are no longer an effective team. Brilliant.

5.The Bourne Identity (2002)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

Matt Damon, oh Matt, how I love you. Why don’t I have a Matt Damon (this version) in my life? After seeing is, I sadly go back to realising life is crap.

6.Deadpool (2016)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

Probably the funniest film ever. Ryan Reynolds couldn’t have played this part better. I know everyone raves about Deadpool 2, but in my eyes, it is more of the same. However, the first one was so funny, it would be impossible for the second to be a flop. N.B: A good idea to wait until after the kids are asleep to watch this one.

7.Forest Gump (1994)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

I used to adore Tom Hanks – he was an incredible actor. This tear-jerker gets me every time I see it.

8.The Green Mile (1999)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

I hadn’t seen this film in years and then it was on the TV the other day and immediately drew me in. Warning: prepare for extreme heart-rendering tears.

9.Oceans 11 (The Original, 2001)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

All of my favourite actors doing what they do best – when I watch this I am literally in heaven. Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, George Clooney, Andy Garcia – what more could a girl ask for? Apart from to do another – with the same damn cast! Grrr.

10.Ps I Love You (2007)

Credit: Wikipedia.org

This romance film is my favourite but I am left crying for days afterwards. Don’t watch this unless you have a mountain of comfort foods to the ready.

Discover The Best Makeup Setting Sprays Of 2018

Hey Lovelies!

Today I’m sharing with you the best makeup setting sprays.

The festive season is in full swing and you’ve got back-to-back parties for the foreseeable, which means Instagram and social media are about to be flooded with pics. So, you want to look A-mazing? This year, it would be great to avoid any dodgy-looking pics taken just a few hours into the event, in which liner seems to have gone for a swim underneath your eyes (taking the smudged look to a whole new level) and any foundation has slipped from your face like you’ve been standing in a melting pot. Not a good look! This party season, we want serious staying power – but we don’t have to resort to the spray on plaster in the bathroom cabinet. Here are the best setting sprays that are incredible at ensuring your makeup remains flawless all evening.

1.E.L.F. Matte Magic Mist & Set, £5, www.elfcosmetics.co.uk

As a huge fan of E.L.F. Cosmetics foundation and primer, I couldn’t wait to give their Magic Mist Setting Spray a try – it did not disappoint. Makeup acquires a gorgeous matte finish and stays firmly in place for a good 8 hours – which is unbelievable for me given that makeup seems to just evaporate to the point where it looks like I hadn’t even bothered applying any to begin with. Major result!

2.Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist, £17, www.debenhams.com

Being a newbie to Kat Von D products I was keen to try out this setting spray. This works a treat in creating a gorgeous matte finish and (most importantly) locks your makeup to your face like it has some kind of invisible super power. You can party the night away and still take some filter-free pics on your ride home. I love this!

3.NYX Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray, £7. nyxcosmetics.co.uk

When I read about the woman who claimed her makeup stayed put (using NYX Setting Spray) throughout the trauma of a car crash, I wasn’t surprised. For me, this setting spray has serious gluing power, provides a beautiful matte finish and instead of nipping to the club toilet and cowering in sheer horror at your ‘Freddie Kruger-like’ reflection (obviously from seeing a face of smeared makeup, not blood), your flawless complexion is, well, actually PERFECT! NYX, I love you!

4.Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray, £24, urbandecay.co.uk

urban decay setting spray
Credit: urban decay.co.uk

When it comes to makeup Urban Decay set their standards to a truly professional level (which is probably why they charge that much more). Urban Decay’s Setting Spray ticks all the boxes (no setting into lines and caking, or fading) and your makeup looks as if you had just applied it -even when you’ve gone from work to a party and then danced your ass off of 3 hours straight! To be fair I haven’t tested it after 16 hours (yet) but the party season has only just begun.
