Clarins Sunkissed Makeup Collection for Summer 2017

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils (£19.50) were a huge success when they first launched back in January 2015, and the brand is bringing out four brand new shades for this summer! I actually have a review of one of the oils, so you can take a look.

All of the new shades are permanent!  And they are: Candy, Tangerine, Mint (contains menthol and is effective for plumping the lips) and Honey Glam (with glimmering flecks of gold).  Each lip oil contains nourishing hazelnut oil, mirabelle and organic jojoba oils.

Besides the oils, there is also a seasonal summer collection:

Bronzing & Blush Compact, £30

Embossed with a botanical palm motif,  three matte bronze shades and an iridescent coral blush. The bronzer from last summer was so incredible, I love it, some of my girlfriends purchased it, as well as some readers, and  I’ve heard nothing but

March 2017 Beauty Favourites

Spring is really here! And I am really enjoying the warmer and longer days, and finally we get to see some sunshine. March was also a very great month for me, beauty-wise, as I have discovered and re-discovered some amazing products.

But before we start, I have to say that I am still absolutely in love with the products I’ve mentioned in my January favourites: Charlotte Tilbury foundation, Givenchy mascara,  Inglot sculpting powder and Daniel Sandler’s blusher.

I will start with beauty, as there is only one product that I want to mention, and that is SachaJuan Ocean Mist (review) which I have re-discovered and almost used up. My brother is getting me a new bottle as a Belated Birthday gift. This gives a lot of volume and texture without making the hair feel crunchy. At least I don’t find that mine is.

Skincare and body care wise, I am just trying to use up my half-empty bottles before I get anything new and exciting.

As for makeup, there

SS17 Trend: Highlighters

The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter Review

This winter I have finished so many body lotions/creams/ butters, and I did want to do the empties feature but all those bottles got on my nerves, and I threw them away. However, I will share about one of my favourites – The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter.

I actually bought it because of the name, regular readers will know that I am obsessed with rose scented beauty products, and even tea and coffee with rose!   I also really liked all the products from the Scottish Fine Soaps Company that I have tried in the past so had high hopes for this body butter.

And it is nice. The scent is really lovely, it is described as “roses, amber, cedarwood and a hint of
