Talika Bubble Mask Bio Detox

I got this mask in look fantastic it’s priced at €9.95, it’s a little pricey for a mask.

This is a foaming charcoal mask, charcoal is fantastic for helping with blocked poses and blemishes and Korean Rice Wine balances the skin tone while soothing damaged skin and replenishing vital moisture.

You leave the mask on for ten minutes and it’s foams a lot, If you are looking for a sheet mask for the plane, do not buy this one. After the 10 minutes you remove the mask and massage the excess foam in and rinse.

It’s a nice a mask but it left my skin feeling dry, I prefer a mask that makes my skin feel more moisturised.

The most important question would I repurchase and no I wouldn’t.

Lots of love

March look fantastic beauty box

I know it’s April, I’ve no idea why I’m so late putting this up it was pure laziness.

The March beauty box contains 6 beauty items, I have to say I really liked this months box.

First up is Morphe mini high lighter in spark, very excited to try this as I love morphe eyeshadows.

Omorovicza cleansing foam 30ml. I am going to keep this up for my holidays as it’s a perfect size.

The ordinary, hyaluronic acid 2% +B5 hydration support formula 30ml. I’m a big fan of the ordinary, so was very happy to see this

Rituals hand balm 70ml. Good size product again I am keeping this up for my holidays. I was warned that on cruises you have to use hand sanitizers a lot and it drys your hands out.

Madara smart anti pollution charcoal and mud repair mask 12.5ml so it’s not a great size.

Last but not least and the product I was most excited about eos lip balm, I’m thinking about putting it away for my holidays but I really want to use it now

Look fantastic box is €17 for 6 month subscription click here to find out more.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

Hair clips

Hair clip trend has around for a while now and it’s a trend I really like but you don’t want to break the bank.

I always look for cheap alternative’s for trends like this, AliExpress is the perfect place to look. Just type pearl hair clips into the search bar and thousand come up. The main tip I have from buying from Aliexpress is always read the reviews before buying and of course expect a long wait.

They wore €1.22 each

€ 1.12

€1.07

€1.08

This clip is my favourite €1.21

As you can see, the most expensive clip I got was €1.22. The quality is amazing for that price and the wait didn’t bother me.

Happy shopping

Lots of love

Erno Laszlo Deep Sea Cleansing Bar Mini

This is a product I am excited to use, its blended with 26 minerals and is made using 97% natural ingredients it’s enriched with Dead Sea mud which detoxifies, hydrated and restores skins mineral level. Now I am thinking about putting this up for my holidays in September, these little minis are great for bringing on holidays. It’s priced at around €10

Overall, I didn’t love this months beauty box. I just wanted a bit more skin care than make up.

Lots of love

If you are not a dress fan perhaps a red top, Penney’s/Primark have an amazing animal print top for €8, just add black jeans, black over sized blazer and heels, you are sorted.
