The Perfect Hunkemöller Present

During winter there is nothing I love more than snuggling up on the sofa and watching Christmas films. Every year I am on the look out for a new fluffy dressing gown to accompany me in this ritual.

 I personally don’t think I can think of a better Christmas present to receive than a fresh set of soft pyjamas or a cosy dressing gown that you can live in this season.

This year I have found the perfect place to purchase my cosy lounge wear. Hunkemöller is a clothing company based in the Netherlands and they stock the cutest lingerie and nightwear. Not only is their nightwear fashionable, but their products are extremely well made and the quality is amazing.

Since receiving this Fleece Robe from Hunkemöller, I haven’t been able to take it off. The fleece material so soft and cosy, it is perfect to keep you warm at home this Christmas. 

If you are looking for a Christmas gift idea, then this should definite be on your list. It is also great if you are just wanting to treat yourself, I mean isn’t that what Christmas is really about?

If you want to try out the amazing products they have to have to offer, head over to their website and have a look for yourself. They stock a range of sizes and styles to suit everybody. 

 

 

This product was gifted to me by Hunkemöller, but all opinions are my own.

You may have previously read my review on the Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Skin Wash which I absolutely loved, so I was keen to try out another one of the their products.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out my review I will give you a quick introduction to the brand. Australian Bodycare is a company which uses Tea Tree Oil in it’s products in order to clear the skin from any harmful bacteria. They sell many products skincare products ranging from cleansers to moisturisers, which all aim to leave our skin feeling the best it possibly can.

I recently decided to try out their Any Time Balm. This multi-purpose balm is aimed at relieving dry or chapped skin, lips, cuticles and nails. 

The product is super easy to use as you just need to warm the balm in your hand and apply to affected area. As with most of the products there is a strong Tea Tree scent to the balm which I find incredibly refreshing.

I have mainly been using this product on my hands and lips and I am really impressed with the result. The Tea Tree Oil in the product leaves your skin feeling really soft and refreshed, along with filling the area with moisture. This product has been a blessing through these cold months and I am so pleased to have been able to try it out.

The product comes in a 30 ml tub which is perfect for carrying around in your handbag or pocket. It’s a really handy product to have and I definitely recommend you check it out.

Winter Tan Treats

As temperatures start to drop, there’s nothing I love more than wrapping up warm. But even though I will spending most of the winter months covered up, I still like to make sure that I maintain a bronzed glow.

Most of us have Christmas parties and events to attend, which means that you have will have an excuse to wear anything with a hint of glitter. With that in mind, it’s even more important for me to ensure that my skin will also be glowing. Not all of us are lucky enough to jet away to a warmer climate to get that tropic tan, so I have been looking for an easier alternative.

St. Tropez Express Sheet Mask

When it comes to tanning my face I am always worried that it will leave me with a bright orange face, along with a ton of breakouts. As I am always impressed with St. Tropez tanning products I thought that I would give this a go.

Unlike other face tanners, this product comes in the form of a sheet mask. It’s advertised as being nourishing and glowing, so I was hoping that it wouldn’t dry out my face. As soon as you take the product out of it’s package you can feel how much moisture is in it, which I love. One thing to note is that the mask is very delicate so be extra careful when unfolding it.

I left the mask on for just over five minutes. The product develops gradually and I applied it before going to bed, so I was very pleased to wake up with a light glow to my face. Most importantly I did not break out after using this product which was amazing. The only downside is that you only have one use out of it, but it is definitely a product I will be stocking up on.

Bondi Sans – Self Tanning Foam

This is my new go-to tanning product. I always find that foams work better than lotions, especially when you can see where the tan is developing. This product blends perfectly and you only need to leave it on for an hour to get a bronzed glow.

I tend to go for the Light/Medium shade and I leave it on overnight in order to create the perfect tone. The shade is not orange at all and it leaves you looking like you have been relaxing on a beach all week.

This product also smells incredible, which is always something I look for in a tanning product. If you’re looking for a product which is super easy to apply and will leave you with a natural looking glow, then I would definitely recommend this self tanner.

My Favourite Body Shop Skincare Products! 


I recently stocked up on my favourite skincare products and decided to share them with you guys.

I love The Body Shop, which is reflected on the fact that nearly all of my skincare products are purchased from there.

As my skin is very prone to blemishes, I tend to stick to the Tea Tree range as it works wonders for my face.  My skin also seems to dry up during winter, so I always make sure I have plenty of moisturising products at hand

Here is a quick run down of my favourite products from The Body Shop.

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion.

This product is perfect for when your skin is looking oily, shiny and full of blemishes.  After just one just this product you can definitely see the results. It reduces pore size and leaves your skin looking fresh and ready to go.

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Pore Minimiser.

This products works wonders when used with the Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion.
The Pore Minimiser does exactly what it says on the bottle and minimises any pores you have. I also use this product as a primer before applying my makeup and it really does keep everything in tact.

The Body Shop – Vitamin E Moisture Cream.

This face cream is my go-to product when my skin is feeling dull and dry. I use this product both day and night, leaving my skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. The product itself isn’t too heavy on the skin which I love. It doesn’t make your skin break out either which is always a plus!

The Body Shop – Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask.

If you’ve read any of my previous posts you will know how much I love this product. I make sure I use it at least once a week, as the results are incredible!
If you’re having a breakout just in time for an important event (which always seems to be the case for me), then I would definitely recommend you purchase this product.

I guarantee that you will see the results over night.
It has definitely helped me out in the past and I will continue to purchase this product until I die!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and it would be great to hear what other products you enjoy from The Body Shop!

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation

thumbnail_img_2717

 Winter has arrived and my skin is slowly adjusting to this freezing cold weather.

Last week I decided that I needed to fix up my skincare and makeup routine in order to stop my skin turning into a dry and flaky mess.

Usually I love using thick and full coverage foundations such as Double Wear, but the truth is, a lot of the full coverage foundations I try can be VERY drying. I feel like no matter what I am wearing underneath my foundation, the moisture will always be sucked out and my skin is often left feeling deflated.
Obviously I’m not writing this post to slate Double Wear in any way because it’s usually my go-to foundation, but in the winter I just need something more suited to my skin.

So this is where Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet steps in. As I was passing through House of Fraser last week, I decided to try out some of the foundations Chanel had to offer. I explained to the lovely lady at the counter that my skin had become very dry lately, but that I still wanted a full coverage foundation. She advised me to try out Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet as it has more of a velvety texture (hence the name), rather than a thick, sticky texture.

 I was matched to the shade Beige 20, and after using it for a week, I can honestly say it’s one of the best foundations I have ever tried. Not only does it last all day, but it feels so lightweight on my skin and covers almost every blemish!

I couldn’t believe that I hadn’t tried this foundation before. It’s amazing how different my skin feels after using it. I finally have moisture back in my skin, even on the coldest of days. The texture of the foundation is so soft and easy to work with which I love.

If you’re looking to switch up your foundation for Christmas then I would definitely recommend this one – it’s amazing!

My favourite makeup products this month!

thumbnail_img_2542

This month I have purchased several items which I have fallen in love with and I thought I would share them with you!

I am always on the look out for new make-up products to try out and reading reviews on them help me decide on what to buy, so I am hoping this post may  help some of you.

This month I was lucky enough to take a trip to Paris with my boyfriend. Whilst I was there I was amazed to find that we were staying five minutes away from Sephora. So of course I had to stock up on a few new items and this palette was one of the items I purchased.

The palette is called The Delicate and features some amazing nude, bronze and golden eye shadows which I absolutely adore. I feel that the colours are perfect for this season and they’re so pigmented and long lasting – if you’re looking for a small eye shadow palette to add to your collection, I would definitely recommend you check this one out!

thumbnail_img_2546

The second product I am loving this month is the Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation. Before trying this product I heard mixed reviews about it, but I decided give it a go anyway. This foundation gives full coverage, which is perfect for a night out or a long day at work. Unlike many other full coverage foundations I’ve tried, it’s not too thick and it still lets my skin breathe which is amazing. I’ve actually started to mix this foundation with my Double Wear and it’s become one of my new favourites.

When shopping at the Urban Decay counter I also decided to pick up the Afterglow Highlighter in the shade Sin. This highlighter promotes itself as lasting 8 hours and I can honestly say it does the trick! I usually wear this highlighter every day to work and it’s been staying on my face without me having to use any setting spray which is amazing. I probably wouldn’t use the product for a night out because it’s still quite subtle, but it’s brilliant for everyday use.

thumbnail_IMG_2545.jpg

The last product I recommend you try out is a NYX Intense Butter-Gloss. I love this range and have tried out many shades, but the one I am loving at the minute is the shade Chocolate Crepe. This shade is a dark brown shade, with hints of red and is perfect for this season. I would wear this product both day and night, as it goes with almost any outfit. This gloss also lasts all day which is always a bonus.

So there you have my favourite makeup products of the month. There are so many items I am loving at the moment and I am always on the hunt for more – let me know what products you recommend I try this season!
