REN Max Moisture Concentrate – hydraluron Dupe!

 photo REN_zpsa2e3e409.jpg


Hydraluron is a massive hype, cult, niche product that I LOVE, it really has made a huge difference to my skincare routine. It’s £24.99 from Boots for 30ml. This REN serum is £32.00 for 30ml but at the moment is £16.00 on ASOS. REN is more expensive but you need half the amount that you do with Hydraluron! Hydraluron needs about a pea sized amount for your whole face and with REN I just need one tiny pump as seen in the photo below! From the website it says that it’s ‘A concentrate formulated to dramatically hydrate and replenish the skin leaving it visibly plumped, smoothed and comfortable.’ With the results being 1. 
Optimises hydration.  2. Restores softness, elasticity and comfort. 3. Skin looks replenished, smoothed and healthy. It is also suitable for all skin types, you use this morning and night and followed by a moisturiser.

Sleek MakeUP Blush in Sahara

I picked this beautiful blusher up from Superdrug this week and had to share it with you because it’s so pretty, perfect so summer. It’s a stronger summer blush and easily lends itself to the perfect tanned, bronzed look. It may be more suited to brunettes as I can’t see this colour working very well with blonder hair just due to the intensity of it, if you’re blonde and it works for you, let me know, I might be wrong.  This is Sleek blush in ‘Sahara’ and at only £4.49 it’s a bargain. I actually picked mine up for £3.04 because of student discount and a tiny bit of Superdrug Beauty Card Points!

La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I Targeted Breakout Corrector

So I mentioned earlier in the week that I’d bought a new La Roche Posay product in the Boots 3 for 2 offer. It’s the La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I Targeted Breakout Corrector, essentially a spot treatment. I had to full read the packaging to work this out though mind, I was unsure of whether it was a serum like the Effaclar Duo or if it as a spot treatment. After reading, it’s the latter.

Super Facialist by Una Brennan Tea Flower Purifying Cleansing Wash

The beauty blogger’s day is made when we spot that Boots 3 for 2 sign isn’t it? I always see so many tweets and Instagrams about 3 for 2 buys, I love it, we’re all so easily swayed to buy things that we’ve wanted for a while because it’s 3 for 2. Of course, it’s bargain central, and it’s beauty. It’s a no brainer, we love it. Anyway, luckily I actually needed some face wash/cleanser in this 3 for 2 haul and I also picked up a La Roche Posay product that I’ll be featuring soon and some Soap & Glory conditioner. You can’t do a Boots 3 for 2 without slipping some Soap & Glory in there, non?

Barburrito Nottingham Review

Here’s me making an effort to blog about one of my other massive loves. Food. Especially Mexican food. Now, I’m from the land of Mission Burrito, the kids up here don’t seem to know what that is but I have them near me at home in Bristol, Bath and Oxford, I’m not sure if they’re the only branches but that was my first exposure to burrito fast food. So, when I came back to uni in October and saw that this little baby, Barburritor, had popped up in Nottingham we all went wild.

Origins Zero Oil Review

 photo originszerooil_zps4a12d050.jpg
As always, I’m on the hunt for the perfect primer. This is similar to Nanoblur by Indeed labs, you apply it before or after make-up.
I’ve only tried it under make-up as a proper primer as I find when I apply anything other than Eau Thermale by Avene or the NUXE moisturising mist over makeup it goes all weird and patchy! This works pretty well under makeup, I feel like it gives me an extra few hours more than other primers do, but I’m still shiny by about lunchtime. To be honest, I don’t think I’ll ever find anything to totally control my oily skin but this is really good so far, keeps shine at bay for atleast 4 hours! At £13 for 18ml it may be slightly expensive but it works pretty well. I might try it over makeup but it is quite liquid-like so I need to trial and error this!

MAC Warm Soul Mineralize Blush

This is another (& the last) of my duty free buys from Tokyo. I’ve had my eye on this for a while after I’d had a recommendation on Twitter for what to pick up in duty free. I don’t own any bronzey-peach blushes like this, the majority of mine are quite strong or deep pinks so this is a nice change for me. It looks really good with a tan and makes you look more tanned when you wear it, I like it just above a matte bronzer contour for a bit of shimmer on the cheeks. It’s described on the MAC website as a mid tone beige with gold pearl. It is such a pretty shade and I’m really glad I bought it.

Food Review: A Cheat Day with Takeaway.com

Today’s post comes to you with a happy full tummy and without an empty purse.
Takeaway.com were kind enough to let me review their service with a very generous voucher. Now, most of the time I eat well and I really enjoy healthy food and I think I have a pretty balanced diet but we all need to have a cheat meal every now and again because otherwise we might explode! It doesn’t have to be a takeaway, it can just be something a bit naughty cooked at home but on this occasion, a very tired Sunday evening, it was definitely a Takeaway.com moment. The only conditions were that the place that I ordered from had to accept online payment and I had to make the order on a computer not a mobile device. Not huge deal-breakers really! Here’s what I thought…
