Christmas Gift Guide | Beauty Gadgets!

Posted on December 12, 2014

beauty-gadgets

Hi Guys!

Today’s gift guide is all about beauty gadgets! I’m a complete sucker for gadgets and gizmos, and what better gift to give (and, erm ask for maybe?) than some fantastic beauty gadgets! I’m covering hair, skincare and have even thrown in an amazing electric toothbrush that’s currently half price, so I hope you’ll find something you like 🙂

1. THX Total Hair Experts Spiralicious Bubble Wand exclusively at Tesco, £25 – This crazy looking hair wand is everything you need to create a variety of hair looks! The bubble design allows you to choose from tousled waves by wrapping hair around the bubbles, or defined spirals by wrapping hair in the grooves between the bubbles. It has a temperature setting of 210 degrees and a ceramic-coated barrel, so you can create beautiful curls while protecting your hair from heat-damage, and the extra-long length of the wand means it even works on longer hair. Thumbs up all round for this nifty product!

2. Foreo Luna Mini from Lookfantastic, £99. – The Luna Mini is one of the latest gadgets on the skincare scene. You use this product for only one minute morning and night to drive away blemish-causing impurities. The Luna Mini promises to leave the skin looking clearer, brighter and healthier in just 3 days! It gives up to 8000 pulsations per minute to gently remove dead skin cells, as well as unclogging pores of 99.5% of dirt and oil, and 98.5% of makeup residue. The non porous silicone brush is super hygienic too as it resists bacteria buildup. The Luna Mini’s smooth, soft silicone touch-points glide across the skin for deep, effective facial-cleansing that’s actually gentle enough to use every day. Its travel-friendly design is also fully waterproof, lasts up to 300 uses per full charge and requires no replacement brushes. What more could a girl want!?

3. Magnitone Lucid Facial Brush from Lookfantastic, £49 – I’ve been using my Lucid for quite a while now with no complaints whatsoever. I’ve included this as an alternative the the Luna above, as they both effectively do the same thing. It just depends on your budget and if you’d prefer silicone or a brush head. The Magnitone Lucid has two cleansing modes for deep cleaning and also for sensitive skin, it gives 10000 pulsations per minute and is completely waterproof so you can use it whilst in the bath or shower without worrying!

4. ghd V Coral Styler from Lookfantastic, £109 – If anyone mentions hair straighteners, the first brand most people will think of is ghd. They’re renowned for their superior quality electrical hair products, and the Coral Styler is up there with the best of them. Helping you to create hair styles you’ll love, the ghd V Coral Styler has been designed with vibrant hues and graduated colours to give you an exotic styler that allows you to create flawless looks. The straightening irons have been designed with contrast black plates that contain ceramic heat technology to enhance shine and versatility. Ideal for straightening, curling, or adding waves and flicks, the V Coral Styler has a rounded barrel to help you to create endless styles with ease. The Styler also has a professional length cord for flexible styling, an automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes and a coordinated heat resistant mat, so you can style your hair to perfection.

5. Panasonic EW-DE92 Toothbrush from Boots, on sale at £99.99 until January 7th. Electric toothbrushes often tend to be on the expensive side so people may not necessarily be keen to run out and buy one, they are a fantastic investment though so this Panasonic toothbrush (which is currently half price) really would make an excellent Christmas gift! The new EW-DE92 model toothbrush features Ionic technology that takes care of stains and plaque, it also has a triple-edged brush and sonic vibration of 31,000 brush strokes a minute! You also get a load of extras in the box including point brush and gum massager attachments and a handy tongue cleaner. The EW-DE92 toothbrush also has four selectable brushing modes and a soft start function. This toothbrush really is the bees knees of dental hygiene, make sure you grab one while they’re on offer!

I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx

August Beauty Favourites!

Posted on September 9, 2014

august-beauty-favourites-new

Hi Guys!

Ok I have quite a large list of favourites for August, some have been reviewed already and some I haven’t had a chance to yet, so I thought I’d tell you about them today. I also wanted to include my Christian Louboutin Nail Polish but I’VE LOST IT. I know, how do you lose an eight inch spiky nail polish? I’ve probably put it ‘somewhere safe’ and I’ll find it soon, I hope, but yeah that would have been included here! Otherwise I’ve got a good mix of makeup, skincare and fragrance to tell you about…

Alesha Rose Quartz EDT Fragrance* – Now I’m not often a fan of celebrity fragrances, actually if a celebrity brings out a perfume I’m more likely to look the other way, compared to a beauty or luxury brands (sorry I’m a it of a fragrance snob) So when I was sent this to try out I didn’t expect too much, simply due to my own preconceptions. But hand on heart I actually love this fragrance! It’s a pretty classic floral scent with notes of bergamot, grapefruit, rose, amber, patchouli and musk. It’s perfect for every day and it’s only £25 for a massive 100ml bottle so it’s going to last for ages, what a bargain! I’d definitely recommend trying this if you’re poking for a lovely every day fragrance that won’t break the bank.

Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Au Naturel* – I’m such a big fan of Sleek’s i-Divine palettes, they’re fantastic quality but with a budget price tag, and with ten shades per palette you have everything you need in a handy slim makeup bag sized palette. The shades in the Au Naturel palette are perfect for every day wear, with darker shades included too so you easily go from a day to evening look.

Sleek Lipstick in Liqueur* – This is my absolute perfect nude pink lipstick shade, I was actually surprised how much I loved this! It’s such a great colour for my pale skin tone, it warms up my complexion without being too dark. It looks really natural and just makes me feel a bit more polished.

Essie Nail polish in Sittin Pretty – I love this colour so much! It’s a bright neon cream shade of purple, it’s so summery, and yes I know it’s now Autumn but I’m not letting go of the summer just let! Plus as it’s a neon it looks great with a tan 🙂 – which I don’t have, I’m just saying in case you do have one!

Bioderma Hydrabio Exfoliating Cream and Moisturising Mask* – Bioderma are a brand new brand for me, I’ve never used their products before so when I was offered to try their Exfoliating Cream and Moisture Mask I was thrilled. I’ve heard many good things about Bioderma, and especially as these two products part of the Hydrabio range for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin – check, check and check over here – they sounded perfect for me. The exfoliating cream contains patented Aquagenium technology which is a biological complex that stimulates the skin’s cellular capabilities, re-training it to generate in depth, and to lock in essential moisture. I found this scrub very effective and followed by the Moisturising Mask my skin was left feeling amazingly soft and supple. These products are definitely going to be purchased again!

So…? Fresh-Tival Gift Set* – This sweet little set contains two dry shampoos, one to freshen up and one for volume, and two body sprays. I threw the volumising shampoo and one of the body sprays in my bag an was quite surprised when I realised how many times I’ve reached for them in the last month. My hair is really fine, so it’s super handy to have a little bottle of volume in my bag for when I need it on the go!

YSL Fusion Ink Foundation – This foundation is EVERTHING. I won’t go into too much detail as you can read all about it in my review, but I genuinely believe this is the foundation release of the year. Whether you have dry, sensitive, oily or normal skin, I haven’t seen a bad review of this product yet. You need to try this.

Magnitone Lucid* – Since I’ve been using the Lucid, my skin has officially never felt cleaner. I don’t think I’l ever look back! Take a look at my review for all the details!

So that’s about it I for August! I could have put many more products in but you’d be reading  this forever! I’d love to hear which products you’ve been loving lately, and if there’s anything you think I should try this month? xxx
