I'm gonna cut to the chase and go straight into July Faves as there are quite a few to get through!
As you know I am like an oil slick on my face, so oil free products usually work for me! I am loving visibly clear, pink grapefruit oil- free moisturiser by Neutrogena. To be honest with you, I like most of the Neutrogena rage as it works for me and it's very reasonable too!
Hot pinks are really fashionable at the moment and look great with a tan and in the sunshine! I am a big fan of I.B.D gel nail products as they last for a long time on the nail and colour doesn't fade. They do a shade called All Heart which has shiny flecks of colour in it.
Temporary lip tattoos have become huge at the moment and I have seen them in quite a few stores. I found some in the Factory Shop for only a pound, so thought I would give them a go!
Last but not least! I am really in to contouring my face as it makes me look slimmer and more defined. I got given this a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE this product! It's from AVON and it's from there true colour range and the colour is earthen rose.

There are always rumours that the medication, lotions and cream's etc that doctors prescribe can thin the skin. Which is not so great for me because the eye area is so thin anyway. I know that skin rejuvenate's quite quickly when your younger. However, I'm no spring chicken anymore and need to look after my assets, if not, then my skin at least!!
One day about 3 months ago I was walking up Wells highsteet, Somerset and came across a market stall and a massive sign....DO YOU SUFFER FROM ECZEMA? I nudged my boyfriend and asked if we could take a look. They had a whole stall of things from bath bombs, to bars of soap to oils. The guy on the stall (Adrian Mackey) was lovely and really easy to talk too and I explained my situation.
|Sorry about my label, but this little beaut comes everywhere with me!|
The soap is made from all natural ingredients and has oatmeal in it, which acts as a gentle exfoliator. It doesn't bubble up as much as other soaps. But I can tell you that the smell is divine and its also very soothing. I have even used this on my face and I find that it's not drying to the skin at all. It lasts a long time and @ £3.75 I think that is pretty reasonable for all natural products. The only thing that lets me down is that it's made from Palm Oil. Palm Oil is fine to use and obviously great on the skin, but it's not great for the environment. I won't go into details, but for me I won't be using this again as I try and care for the environment here and there! Maybe house of soap, you could put something back into the palm tree environment or use another natural product? Just a thought and if so I will definitely buy this product again!
The 100% Shea Butter on the other hand is great and I will be buying over and over again! It's literally like a butter and it is white in colour and for £7.50 this product will last you for ever. I put it on my dry skin every night and YES ladies and gents, my eczema is pretty much gone from my eyelids, without using those pesky chemicals on my face! It may not work for you, but at least give it a try as I'm sure it will do something. If not, it will give you amazing soft skin at least!
Adrian is at Wells market every Wednesday and you have to see him! He is amaze balls! If not you can buy on line at www.houseofsoap.co.uk
Give it a try!

Yes I have another new blog and hopefully the last! I will pimp it up at a later date, but for now I wanna talk about the Lauren Luke Brush set that I received a couple of weeks ago. I have put them to the test and have done a few bridal make-ups with them, so that you get a full review on what they are actually like!
The First thing I noticed when I received them was how personalised the packaging was. Ok, so they were only in a brown Jiffy bag! But obviously inside were the brushes and a personal typed up note from Lauren! I thought it was a nice touch (even though, she presses print on her computer!) and knowing how busy she must be, it seems that she still takes the time out to know her customers and fans! She even messaged me on Facebook.....oh yeah!
For those who don't know who Lauren Luke is (if you don't....are you in the dark ages?!) She is a youtube sensation under the name Panacea81. She blogs and reviews anything from make-up, tutorials, her life and you can even email her your problems and she will try and help! The reason I love her? I love her because she is your girl next door, who had quite a sad past. But she got off her ass and sorted it and tried to make a go of things! Now look at her, she has youtube hits over 127,000,000 and she has over 442,000 subscribers, with now, her own make-up brush line! A.MA.ZING!!!
So back to the brushes! There are 8 to choose from and the prices range from £3.25-£6.50. I'm not gonna lie, I was a little dubious and wondered why they are so cheap. But I went ahead an bought the whole lot, plus you get the pencil brush for free. The whole set cost me £33.75 and then a couple of quid on top for the postage and packaging.
I can't express enough LOVE for these brushes! They are absolutely fan-dabi-dosy! And for the price...............this girl has done well to produce such wonderful brushes!
