Sebamed Skin Care Review + Giveaway

1 comment

My skin for me has always been a struggle, whilst I don't have sever acne at all I do struggle with hormonal breakouts and huge painful volcanoes zits on my chin especially. On another note, why do the spots always show up in the most obvious of places?! You know - in the middle of your eyebrows, on your chin or slap bang in the middle of your forehead?!

I'm always a bit skeptical when it comes to blemish fixing products/ranges as they never seem to work or just generally do what they do on the tube.

I really love these products! My favourite is the deep cleansing facial toner which is refreshing and really feels like you've cleansed every little left over scrap of make-up/dirt/oil from the day. I tested out the trio of Sebamed products by cleansing my face my normal way which is removing my eye make-up first with any old eye make-up remover, then following up with a cleanser to remove my face make up and any excess eye make-up; then to follow up applying the 'Deep Cleansing Facial Toner' to a cotton pad and sweeping over my face, giving my face a fan which feels so refreshing. After the toner I would apply a little bit of the care gel to my problem areas - my chin and around my eyebrows. I only tested out the cleansing bar once, but it just didn't work on my skin type unfortunately but for anyone with super oily skin this would be perfect!

I would 100% recommend trying out the Sebamed skin care range if you're looking for something to give you that lovely summer skin that makes not only yourself feel beautiful but your skin look beautiful too! I definitely actually noticed a difference in my skin after trialling out these products - the spots on my chin are significantly faded as well as no new ones came through whilst testing out these products.

You can find sebamed here and here on twitter!

Now for the exciting bit - I am going to be giving away each one of these products as I really want one of you lovely readers to try them out for yourself!

Adriana Lima; Met Ball 2015 Make-Up

Leave a Comment

I saw so many pictures of stunning celebrities at the met ball this year, and thought their make-up was impeccable, I particularly adored Adriana Lima's, Jennifer Lopez's and Jennifer Lawrence's make-up looks so it was really difficult to decide on which one to re-create. I thought to myself I've already recently done a J LO make-up look so I figured why not do the sexy goth style make up that Adriana was sporting? I la la la lurve dark colours so I was set on re-creating her make-up.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette Review & Deep Chocolate Brown Smokey Eyes

Leave a Comment
Deep chocolate brown, dreamy smokey eyes is definitely one of my go to looks when I want to feel and look glam. As you may already know, I have an unhealthy obsession with purple eye shadow as I feel like it suits the majority of skin tones and eye colours - and really makes my green eyes pop
This Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is a new toy and a love of mine that I excitedly picked up at Debenhams (haul, vlog, post) a few weeks or so ago, I just wanted to dive straight in and have a play with all the gorgeous shades.

First things first (i'm the realest) let's state the obvious and the main thing that drew me to this beauty. It smells like chocolate! It's packaging also looks like chocolate as well as the gorgeous chocolate brown shades inside... dreamy. What I really adore about this palette is how they've thrown a few darker, dramatic colours in there too rather than bog standard neutral shades which just don't excite me all that much - so you can really go to town or you can use it as an every day palette.

Pricing wise I feel like £39 is a good price for this standard of palette and how many shades you get - also considering the two highlight shades are larger too so inevitably will last you longer. The packaging is nice and sturdy and has a magnetic closure - although I feel like it needs to be a bit of stronger shut as I am stupidly clumsy.

The shadows themselves are completely on point - a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers/glitters to create an encyclopaedia of eye make-up looks. The matte shades really impressed me as they are perfect for transition shades in the crease or just as base work/every day make-up but are amazingly pigmented for matte shadows. My favourite shades from the palette have to be; 'Salted Caramel', 'Candid Violet' and 'Cherry Cordial' - just to narrow it down to the power of three; I would pick all of them otherwise!

This palette is a complete winner for me, definitely one to add to your wish list as I think it should last you a fair bit of time and the amount of variating make-up looks you can create from this one palette alone is phenomenal. Go get it.

As always I really hope you enjoyed the tutorial and the review helped you out if you're interested in the palette. I loved wearing this make-up, it's super glam but actually quite an easy one to re-create.

Too Glam To Give A Damn.

Thank you for reading and until next time...
