Thid is from PS beauty range from Penneys/Primark its priced at €1.50 and you get four disks in one packet so this means two uses which for this price its great value.
You have the choice of leaving them on all night or for 30 minutes.
The first time I used them, I left them on all night. It was a little uncomfortable at the start but I did manage to fall asleep but one came off and the other disk had moved down my cheek. So next time I just used them with a face mask and left them on a bit longer.
The first thing you notice is the cooling effect and you can also pop them in the fridge for a few minutes if you feel like your eyes need a bit extra TLC.
Did I notice big differance, nope not really.I enjoyed using them my eyes felt refreshed and these would be perfect after a long week or with party season just kicking off these would be perfect before putting on your make-up.
Lets be honest for €1.50 you can’t go wrong.

I got this in a set for my Birthday all the way back in December and started using it over a month ago. I have to say I was excited when I seen this as I had heard amazing things but never tried it.
La Roche Posy products are all soap-free, no parabens, alcohol-free and colourant-free they also follow a strict formulations standards: 100% hypoallergenic skincare, Non-comedogenic ,High concentration of selected ingredients and with Thermal Spring Water, minimal ingredients and fragrance, tested on the most sensitive skin.
I love the sound of all this as my skin is somewhat sensitive me and toner do not get on and if there is alcohol in it, it will sting my skin.
The application is a little different to the way I normally cleanse my skin. I pump a small amount on to my hand a little does go along way with this product and start massaging it into my skin it feels amazing. Also it removes mascara and it doesn’t sting my eyes at all. I than remove it with cotton wool and rinse my face.
My skin feels so soft afterword’s and is shining, I love this product and will be rebuying. My skin feels and looks healthier since I started using it and I feel it really helps with my dehydration.
Its Priced at €16.49/£12.00 from boots

P.S Love to Glow range is from Penney’s/Primark its budget skin care they have three products in this range mask, a serum and a moisturiser.
I decided to pick up the mask priced at €3.50.
Let’s start with the first thing you notice the packaging for €3.50 I was not expecting much but I have to say it looks expensive it comes in a box with all the details of the product and then inside you have a glass jar so I am very impressed by this.
This mask is a dupe of Glamglow YouthMud which I have never used so I can’t compare them.
Opening the jar you see straight away it a grey muddy looking mask which I applied to freshly cleansed skin using my fingers, I did have to double layer the product which surprised me as looking at the mask in the jar you wouldn’t think it .
My skin did tingle when it first went on but reading other people’s reviews they are saying it didn’t but again very important to note everyone’s skin is different.
I also liked that it had a cooling effect on my skin which I really liked, I’m not a lover of a facemask that has a heating effect on my skin so this is perfect for me.
I leave the mask on for 15 minutes it says 10 on the box but I feel it needs a little bit longer on my skin I than use lukewarm water to slowly massage and exfoliated my skin and it work you can feel the grit in the mask.
My skin always looks amazing after using this mask it leaves my skin soft, hydrated and blemish free. I have been using this mask twice a week for over a month I feel you should never rave/ or moan about a product till you have used it over a month how you can see the effect on your skin.
I will be buying this Mask again for €3.50 you can’t go wrong.

I decided to try using coconut oil to remove my make-up in the evening.
First of all when I say the word oil its more of a hard oil that melts as soon as it touches your hands.
I slowly begin to massage it into my skin which I have to say is a lovely feeling and you can also use it on your eyes,I than use some cotton wool to remove my make up afterwords my face is shinning and very soft. I wouldnt suggest using this in the morning as to me the shine on my skin is a bit much.
I decided to try this as coconut oil as its naturally antibacterial, antifungal and moisturizing and its nice giving my skin a break from my normal cleanser and toner.
Also I don’t suffer with spots, I would be careful if you do as this might not help, I think its very important to know everyones skin is different just because it suits mine doesn’t mean it will suit yours.
Also I have read this is amazing as a hairmask but coconut oil goes hard when its in water. I did not know this and can cause issues with your drian so be careful a friend of mine was in big trouble fro her husband as she was using this in the shower all the time and her shower got blocked.

Wow I can’t believe its the 2nd of December already where has the year gone but its so exciting to finally get to open my No 7 Advent Calendar.
So this year I decided to stick with the No7 Advent Calendar and stay away from the benifit calendar after last year and I have to say it was exciting opening the glitter gold door last night.
On day one I recieved Protect & Perfect Intense Day Cream and its 25ml which really lasts.
Gone are the days when you would just use foundation abit of powder and some blush now it’s all about countering and highlighting.
I started using Sleek Barekissed Illuminator a few months ago I have to say I was excited about trying these highlighters out I decided to go with Monaco and Pompeii they are priced at €13.49/£9.99 .

I love nice packaging and the Sleek Barekissed Illuminator is impressive for the price it’s a gloss bottle with an easy to use pump which stops you from going a bit OTT as a little goes a long way.
Monaco is perfect for pale skin and there is no trace off glitter which I love and it leaves an amazing glow to your skin. I used this the way I would when countering my face so under my eyes, forehead. Nose and chin where you want the light to hit your face.
Pompeii is a little scary looking and I was nervous using this when I had no fake tan on but again I used it under my cheekbones and on my jawline and then blended and it looked amazing.
How to apply
How to apply, I have used it two ways the first is applying it straight to your skin and using a brush to do this and then blending with foundation.
At the moment I am applying my foundation first and then applying the sleek Illuminator and then blending with a sponge and I prefer this way you can also mix to into your foundation which I haven’t tried yet.
This is one product I will be repurchasing and I have to say it lasts a little goes along way I don’t use it every day as I don’t have the time but at weekend I would always use it including in the day to give my skin an added pop.
Lots of Love
