Review: Soap&Glory's Smoothie Star Body Milk

Rendered Image

Hi Guys,

So today I am going to be reviewing and talking abit about this new purchase of mine. It's Soap&Glory's Smoothie Star Deep Moisturising Body Milk.

I picked this up from Boots for £10 but Soap&Glory items are currently on 3 for 2!!

I saw this on Youtube last week in somebody January Favourites and I was SO intrigued by it and for me to be intrigued in a body moisturiser is very strange as I never use body moisturisers as all ones I've previously tried leave my skin too greasy, and when your in a hurry and need to get dressed to start your day, the last thing you want is your body feeling all oily/greasy!

Before buying this purchase on the day I did, I firstly smelt it in Boots as I wanted to actually smell this product because I heard the smell was so amazing and OH MY GOOD it IS soooo amazing!!!

I was very intrigued by this item because it displays the word "milk" on the bottle, which to me, makes me think it will be a lovely milky consistency which will leave your skin soft and luscious ! And it SO DOES! :D

It contains, Almonds, Coco, Yogurt, Oats and Honey which create a gorgeous smell.

It's claims on the bottle "IRRESISTIBLE Almonds, Oats and Brown Sugar Scent"

It's smells like cookie dough but not in a sickly/biscuity way, it's smells so delicious!!

I can honestly tell you guys I am SO in love with this product. It is by FAR the best body moisturiser I've EVER tried and I've tried many!!

The rich, none greasy formula is a cream colour, it's not a thick cream it's kind of in the middle between a thick and thin consistency, which is perfect.

On the bottle it says it contains a "Waterlock" moisture trapping matrix.

It's rubs into the skin so easily and absorbs quickly too and doesn't leave you with that greasy, sweaty feeling on your skin and the bonus of this product is of course you smell absolutely gorgeous and your skin is left as smooth as a baby's! And I know this as my son's skin is so pure and soft!

My skin since using this product looks so much better. My skin now LOOKS smooth and feels smooth too. I use this from the neck down and I can honestly say, my skin has never felt this lovely.

So I diffidently recommend you guys trying this product out if you like body creams etc!! If you don't like smells that are not like a perfume smell then maybe this isn't for you as it does smell like cookie dough but it's amazing!! 

Thank you for reading guys and if you've tried this or want to, let me know down below :D

Much love

New Years Eve Party Makeup Tutorial PLUS a Twist


Hey Guys!!

So 2012 is nearly apon us and I thought I would jump on the band wagon of creating a fun and bold makeup look for New Years Eve.

The New Years party season is probably the only time of year were people like to go all out with their hair and makeup and have a jolly good time!

Here is my New Years Eve makeup tutorial. I feel this look is very versatile and can be worn on any eye shape, eye colour and skin colour.

You don't have to use any of the same products or colours as me, you can totally mix this look up to however you want it to look for your special parties!

I added the added "twist" with a pretty fairy inspired detailing to the side of each eye, again this is totally personal preference and you can either create this look with or without the pattern.

I hope everyone has a fantastic time this New Years whatever your doing and I wish you all the best for 2012!

Review: Lioele Triple The Solution BB Cream

Hi Guys. I all hope you had a magical Christmas :)

So here it is, my very first official blog post.

So this product I have been dying to review and share with you guys for quite some time. 
I firstly saw my favourite Youtube Makeup Guru the beautiful Samantha Schuerman using this product in several of her tutorials etc. And I know that Sam does suffer from problematic skin. But when I watched her apply this Lioele BB Cream to her face I was totally amazed with the coverage it gave to her. And plus if Samantha Schuerman recommends a product and says it's good then I always believe her 100%.

When I first saw this product the amazing and beautiful packaging and tubing it comes in also really stood out to me. It's a beautiful pink, white and gold tube and looks so delightful!

So I debated about it for quite so time and thought, I WILL buy this product, I couldn't resist it. So I did. I bought it from 

It comes in a 50ml tube which is a brilliant size and a little of this amazing product goes a LONG way!

It cost $28.60 so including shipping and when I purchased this Samantha Schuerman had a discount code for her subscribers too which took off $1.43 so all in all it cost me $34.17. Which in British Pounds converts to around £18.

It took only acouple of weeks to get to me here in the UK which I think was amazing.

So this is how I received the product. 
Again it comes in an amazing outer box packaging, so pretty and attractive! It also came with two little free samples products, which are...:

I'm still yet to try these products. But I am so excited to try them! Lioele put alot of effort into their beautiful packaging, even on there free samples!

Ok so, lets get on to the BB Cream itself.....

I currently only own two BB Creams which is this product and the Garnier BB Cream. The Garnier BB Cream is very beautiful but these two products are both SO different!

This Lioele BB Cream I think is absolutely blooming amazing! I cannot express my love for it!
This products adds moisture and nutrients to the skin and it claims to make your skin as moist as yoghurt which I can differently say is SO true!

It has an amazing SPF protection 0f 30 which is amazing all year round, especially in the summer time!

This product provides AMAZING coverage for a BB Cream. It provides I would say 5x more than the Garnier BB Cream! I think it totally more a higher coverage BB Cream!

It's lovely and light on the skin. My skin never feels cakey when I'm wearing it. It makes me skin soft, even toned and looking soft and smooth!

I just adore everything about this products. The smell is a little unusual, abit nutty kind of smelling but I can easily put up with that as the product itself is amazing!

When I run out of this product I for sure will be purchasing it again as I adore it and can't recommend it enough to you guys!

Have you tried the Lioele BB Cream or are you wanting to try it? Let me know your thought.

Take Care guys and I hope you all have a Happy New Year
