Skin Care Routine - Philosophy

Finding the right skincare can be a nightmare. Especially when you're looking for something that is easy to use, but leaves you looking glowing all year long. When this Philosophy surprise landed on my doorstep I couldn't have been more excited. Offering three steps to beautiful skin and a selection of their best sellers, I couldn't wait to try out the range. 

Purity 3-in-1 Cleanser - £8.50 - £29.50 

An award winning daily facial cleanser, formulated to gently cleanse, tone and melt away even the toughest makeup in one single step, this cleanser is the dream. Having used this throughout my She Does Horror challenge I can honestly vouch for this cleanser and see why it is an award winner. It leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh and eliminates makeup build up with ease. 

The Microdelivery Resurfacing Peel - £59.50 

A two-step at home peel that promises to rejuvenate and resurface skin. Offering a simple and easy method it feels like a luxurious treat. The peel can be used once a week to leave skin feeling extra soft. 

Renewed Hope in a Jar - £35.50 

Offering a promise to refine texture and pores due to a triple blend of alpha-hydroxy acids which gently exfoliate skin, ultimate all-day hydration – thanks to a combination of 3 hyaluronate asian fruit extracts and a continuous healthy colour and glow due to the triple action illuminators which brighten and re-energize the skin this moisturiser claims to do it all. 

Overall the three step program has left my skin feeling super soft. With all my recent makeup antics I expected my skin to be ruined right now, but thanks to Philosophy I think a few skin dramas have been kept at bay. My skin actually feels glowing and I find that my makeup is sitting better than usual. It's dangerous to fall in love with a skin care routine Incase anything ever changes, but I think I may just have fallen for Philosophy. 

Until Next Time

Top Secret - Scandaleyes Reloaded

As I sat clutching the envelope and the secret parcel, I just I had to accept the mission. I knew I had to go underground to bring you the low down on the new Rimmel London Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara for dangerously bold, lethally full lashes. 

The Lowdown 

A new innovative formula gives lashes more volume for a clump free lash look. The formula creates an intense black volumising film that rapidly adheres to lashes more quickly for a divinely dark finish and insanely big lashes. 

The packaging has been given a contemporary luxe twist with an attention grabbing orange. The bold look is mirrored in the Extreme Black shade with dark packaging. The new max density brush lends itself to super volume with maximum impact so you can forgo the falsies altogether. 

With 24 hour lash impact capacity this mascara promises to go the extra mile, whatever the battle at hand. 

My thoughts 

I love the bold packaging and the fact that this mascara aims to fit into a busy life, no matter what you're up to. Whether you plan to go to the gym, or head out clubbing the mascara is sweat and humidity proof. In the name of science I left the mascara on for a long sweaty night of sleep and found it still was going strong in the morning. I wanted to try the removal with ease, so I put it to the ultimate test - removing the mascara with tissue and some water. It removed itself with a gentle blotting motion which pleased me greatly. The overall feel and look of the mascara is what is expect from a high street mascara and left my lashes feeling volumous and fluttery. My favourite is the Extreme Black shade to give maximum impact, but the other will be great for everyday! 


With Halloween just around the corner, give yourself the Scandaleyes Reloaded makeover and get in the undercover spirit. Re-create the look with Rimmel's Scandaleyes Micro Liner to draw the perfect undercover robot look. Smudge proof, tear proof, sweat proof, heat proof and scandal proof, this liner does it all. 

Until Next Time

OOTD - Off The Shoulder Trend

This weekend I attended the Bloggers Blog Awards. The worst thing about these kind of things is deciding what to wear! You don't want to look over dressed and you don't want to look under dressed either!

My usual look is quite girly and so I wanted something that suited this. I opted for this lovely off the shoulder dress from Everything5Pounds.* Yep that's right, the dress only costs £5! I paired it with a big handbag also from Everything5Pounds and accessorised the look with one of my favourite printed scarves. 

The handbag is the perfect size to carry all of your essentials! During the awards I was carrying an umbrella, a camera and a huge bottle of water and they all fitted in with my usual essentials without any overspill. 

I had a great time at the event and absolutely loved my outfit. Keep your eyes peeled for a full run down of the event in the next few days. 

Until Next Time
