RadiateLove - Review

This product is amazing and has helped to stop my eczema coming up over my hands!I have been using it at least once a day/sometimes more for about a month or two now.Most of the time I will slather this on my hands right before I go to sleep for the night.

Whats in this little pot of joy...?
It is just 100% fair-trade/organic Shea butter.

Personally I have never been a lover of the smell of anything that is Shea butter scented but this I love massively.

For 100grams of this product it costs £14.99
I think the price tag is reasonable for something fair-trade and that will last as long as this pot will!
The reason it will last a long time because its almost a solid moisturiser, which yes means that it feels slightly greasy on your skin for the first couple of minutes. 
But when its all sank into your skin it leaves it feeling baby smooth.

This little pot of magic is the only thing I have changed in my handcare and I truly believe it will be the only moisturiser I use on my hands for a long time!

If you fancy trying this out then I have a 25% off Code that you can use!

Smashbox Event

Hello lovelys!
A couple of weeks ago I was very kindly invited to the Southampton Boots for a Smashbox beauty event!

The two Smashbox girls Katie and Jo offered cup cakes, drinks, makeovers and talked to us about all the new products that are coming out, and some of the most popular items too.

There were only a handful of us which was nice because it meant that we could all join in, chat and have fun without being excluded from each others conversations.
( Me, Jess, Alice, Brogan, Mandy, Ami)

The main thing we tried and spoke about at the event was the amazing new creamy contour sticks.
They come in a pack of three (contour, bronze, highlight) and cost £35.
I was a little bit put off by the price to start with but after swatching them and seeing how beautifully they feel and blend into the skin, I just had to treat myself to them!
I have a review and tutorial coming up on my youtube of these gorgeous new contour sticks so keep your eyes peeled!

We also tried out the new eyeliners and lipsticks and many other products!

As seen in the bottom photos of me and Alice I am wearing a gold eyeshadow that I put on in the morning, but one of the ladies put on the new lilac gel eyeliner over the top and I have completely fallen in love with it and I can't wait for it to come out in my local store!

I can't wait to go to more of these events and next time I do I will be sure to bring a camera rather than taking the photos on my iPhone.

If you don't already you can follow me on Instagram where I post photos every day. You can keep updated with all my blog posts, videos, events and more on Instagram.
(There is no harm in being nosy)

Current Favourite Foundation Combination : Review

If you watch my youtube then I am sure you will see these two foundations featured at the end of the month in my favourites video. 
I love trying out new makeup and have heard a few good things about both of these foundations, so I thought hey lets give it a try!

The Loreal Infallible 24H foundation is a thick and almost gel like consistency. This means when I am wearing it gives me an amazing coverage and it really does last all day.
The Loreal True Match foundation is a much lighter and more of a liquid consistency.

So why do I use these together?
One of the reasons is that I simply bought the Infallible one in a shade too dark for me so I mix the two.
The other reason I mix the two is that it gives me full coverage without feeling too heavy on the skin, and it seems to keep my skin perfectly hydrated throughout the day.

The photos below really don't do it justice and I also have all my other makeup on aswell.

Before I get a million questions on what highlighter I use, I thought I would just quickly mention that everyday I wear my Charlotte Tilbury Contour kit and the highlighter is beautiful as well as the contour shade.

Have you got a favourite foundation I should try?

Body Shop Event : Skincare Consultation, Makeover and more

Some of you might know that I had an event at The Body Shop on The Isle Of Wight on the 11th of April!
The event was to celebrate their one year anniversary since their refit, I was lucky enough to be their guest of honer for this event.

At the event I had a skin consultation/facial and a makeover.
Here is a list of all the skincare products the lovely Roxy used on my skin.

The Camomile cleansing butter was so gentle and relaxing on my skin, along with the aloe calming toner and the vitamin C skin reviver, my skin felt refreshed and baby bum smooth!

Roxy also did a makeover using the spring collection.
She went for something different to my normal makeup routine by going for a natural look with a mixture of pink eyeshades and a light coral lipstick.

The makeup products Roxy used were...

There was also a cake sale to raise money for a local Isle Of Wight Charity called 
The charity is for a young girl called Natasha Lambert, she loves the outdoors but has cerebral palsy which affects her speech and her limbs. She uses a wheelchair and a special walking aid, so needs constant care. Natasha has a love for sailing and takes part in many events using her specially adapted boat.
The money she raises goes to 3 charities that Natasha has chosen.
If you want to know more then please check out her website.

As a thank you the girls at The Body Shop said that I could pick any 3 items that I like and can have them as a thank you for coming along.
The three items I picked are...

At the end of the event me, my mum and a lovely blogger called Natasha all got a lovely hand scrub and massage session using the new Fuji Green Tea Range.

After the event me and Natasha went for a cheeky starbucks and had a nose around a few shops.
