Quick Review: Trilogy Rosehip Oil

IMG_4677

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

 I was a bit apprehensive when I decided to make the move from my trusted hydraluron serum to this little number from Trilogy having never used a facial oil before. I was concerned that it would make even my dry skin greasy but, knowing that it is apparently the secret to Kate Middleton’s stunning complexion, I decided to take a punt. Safe to say I was very pleasantly surprised. I have been using this gem morning and night under my usual moisturisers (or if I’m having a make-up free day sometimes on its own) and it has left my skin supple and hydrated. With no real scent either I think that there is little to dislike about this product and the benefits are plentiful. It makes my skin feel wonderful and that I’m giving it the hydration that it really needs through completely natural means.

As a dry skin sufferer it is the perfect accompaniment to my everyday skincare routine.

Quick Review: How to be Parisian Wherever You Are

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/270/37728718/files/2015/01/img_4323.jpg

There has been a lot of hype around this book this year so after having received it for Christmas, I couldn’t wait to dive in and see for myself what all the fuss was about. I love it. I read in two days, cover to cover, and now deem it as one of the books I can see myself referring to still in many years to come.

These four women, the authors Audrey, Anne, Caroline and Sophie, are geniuses giving an insight into a somewhat elusive world. There are lines which will live with me for the rest of my life. It has given me a new outlook or at least a few new things to think about. A wonderful read, guiding you through the ins and outs of a Parisian’s busy schedule.

It is less of a book and more of a philosophy.

Quick Review: Bourjois French Manicure Kit

Bourjois French Manicure Kit

I’ve always wanted to try a DIY french manicure set but I was concerned that when I used it, they were going to look shockingly bad. I have to say with this little Bourjois set I have been very pleasently surprised! The ingenious little brush for the white tips is great and makes it super easy to achieve delicate tips. With a few tiny touch ups throughout the week I definitely think that they last a good 7 days. And to me 7 days of prettiness is pretty darn good.

Overall I’m super happy with these little wonders. They have certainly become part of my daily life.

Quick Review: Zoella Beauty Blissful Mistful

Hello darlings,

If you follow me on Instagram you will have seen that this week I received this little bottle of joy in the post…

Zoella Beauty available here and here

It is of course the fragranced body mist from Zoella’s new product range Zoella Beauty. If you watch her videos on YouTube like me then you will know what I mean when I simply say that it is very Zoe. She has definitely catered to her younger audience with its citrusy and somewhat sugary smell but that isn’t to say that it doesn’t have a certain sophistication and charm. The scent is fresh and light- I guess exactly as described it is a blissful mist. The packaging is equally sweet, with the beautiful pink metallic lid and quaint dotty bottle that’ll look cute on any dressing table.

Overall I like it, a lot. It’ll definitely be my go to scent on my more relaxed days.
