Very Thirsty Hair!! (Bleach London Review)

Hi everyone,
So recently I've had quite a bit of trouble with my hair, this is a bit of a long story, so sit back and relax for this one!

About a week ago I got it into my head that it would be a great idea to go blonde! (Side note, I have been blonde before and am naturally a dirty blonde,so I do know the whole process of going blonde) last time I went blonde I did it professionally at a salon, this time I took it upon myself to dye it (this was never a good idea) at the time I had brown hair with blonde ombré, so just dyed the top blonde, obviously it turned out a brassy orange, I then went off and got bleach and I actually think I bleached my hair twice in the same day (which is NOT a good idea EVER) basically I ruined my hair and it was completely dead and lifeless as to be expected!

I then ended up dying my hair back to brown and wanted to get my ombré back! 
I left my hair brown for about a week as I didn't want to damage it even more by doing the ombré! I decided to try and find some hair masks to try and put moisture back into my hair and repair it, I got a few but none of them really helped 

UNTIL..........

I came across this hair mask from Bleach London, I have never heard of this brand before and thought it looked quite good! It is called Bleach Reincarnation Mask,it claims to resurrect and hydrate bleached or coloured hair and improve elasticity. And is enriched with sunflower seed extract and micro wheat proteins to give great shine and strengthen colour vibrancy. 

This is what made me me buy this product as it is designed for damaged bleached hair, I'm not going to lie, I did think this was going to be another one of those products that claim to do all these wonderful things to your hair but not actually help the problem what so ever!


This here is what the product looks like





So it says to wash hair with shampoo, towel dry and then apply mask to damp hair, leave in for about 15-20 minutes and wash out. 
I applied it to my hair as directed, and wow!!!! Just wow!!! I was actually so surprised with the outcome, like my hair was so unbelievably damaged before,and after using this it has made my hair practically back to normal! It made me so happy to see my hair looking normal again, and was finally able to have my fringe down instead of pinned back! 
So if you have bleached the crap out of your hair or is in bad shape and you think there's no hope for your hair ever getting healthy again, before you reach for the scissors I definitely suggest you go out a pick this up!! It's in boots for only £6.00 which is a killer price! 


Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Let me know if you have used this product or any other products by Bleach London, would love to hear your thoughts & opinions!

Makeup Revolution Review

Hey y'all,
Today I am doing a very exciting Makeup Revolution review, this is also a collaboration post that I'm doing with an amazing blogger called Cat that I met, and who has become a very good friend of mine! So, I absolutely advise you to head on over to her blog and give it a little read. I'll leave the links bellow!






So on the top of my list is the Makeup Revolution London-Ultra Eyeshadows Flawless. This is a ultra thin and sleek black palette,with rose gold writing. Inside we have 32 eyeshadows ranging from matte to shimmer, it will come with a plastic film ontop with the names of each eyeshadow. There is a long mirror above the shadows which is very handy! 
When applying the eyeshadow I was happily surprised with the outcome, the matte eyeshadows are very visible when applied, although I did notice that I had to apply more of the shimmer shadows for it to be more visible and bolder. Overall I really enjoyed this palette, the eyeshadows are a great quality and don't seem to be cheaply made, the palette itself is at an amazing price for just £8! 








I also got the Makeup Revolution London-Blush & Contour palette. Again this is in the same style as the eyeshadow palette, I got this blush palette in Hot Spice. Inside there is a mirror on top and 8 shades, shimmer & matte, there is also a merged baked blusher and a merged baked highlighter. This palette has a very good visable outcome, and is easy to apply. I personally love the highlighter and merged baked blusher! The blushers are very warm tones and I like them a lot! This palette is £6






Next I have The Matte Effect-Cover & Conceal, concealer. This is a stick concealer in no.03 light.This concealer is easy to apply, and gives a good coverage . It's not too drying on the skin which is always good! It covers and conceals imperfections quite well. It again is great value for money at only £1!! Bargain if you ask me!





Lastly I got Makeup Revolution London-Amazing Volume mascara, I love this mascara so so much, I got it in the colour black. It makes my eyelashes super long and spreads out lashes evenly. This mascara doesn't leave my lashes too clumpy either! It has a rubber wand which in a sort of rounded oval shape! For its price it is an extremely good mascara and is almost as good as bigger  brands such as bourjois! This was around the £2 mark






Well that is my Makeup Revolution haul & review, please make sure you go and check out the lovely & gorgous Cat, to have a look at what Makeup Revolution products she has bought! 
thank you so much for reading, comments/opinions welcome!

Body Lotions


Heyo,
I am going to do a little body lotion review. This is only going to be a short one as I am only reviewing 3 lotions.
I am going to start off with
Yes To Carrots body butter. This is 'C Through The Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter'
I used to be OBSESSED with Yes To products, they are awesome because all the ingredients are natural, this is blended with carrot seed oil, has carrot juice, pumpkin, sweet potato and dead sea mud all crammed into one pot, which is bloody fantastic! This is really great for anyone suffering with dry skin, it keeps your skin moisturized for ages. The smell of it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I think it just smells really creamy and slightly sweet, it's a natural non chemically smell.





Secondly I have these two gems from a brand called Ginger & Co. I think they are quite a unknown brand but I thought I'd give them a go!
First I have this body lotion, it's called 'Soft On You Daily Lotion' it does make my skin really soft. The smell of this reminds me of Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. It contains mallow, lemon balm and rose. The product packaging is in a 1950's style which I think adds a nice touch. I like how it feels on my skin as it's not too oily and takes seconds to absorb, it also leaves my skin smelling delicious!




I then got their hand cream called 'Hand It To Me Dreamy HandCream' it again has the same scent as the body lotion. This really keeps my hands soft and hydrated all day long. I feel it is very important to regularly moisturize hands as you are constantly using your hands all day, everyday and they can get dry,sore and damaged so pampering them from time to time is wonderful as they will definitely thank you for it!
Side note: The one thing I loved that is written on the tube is this 'every boy in the town will want to hold your hand' I just thought this was really sweet!




Let me know if you have ever tried these, and what your thoughts are in them!

A Little Review

Oh hey, 
Today I tested out a few make-up products and would like to share my thoughts on them so here we go.


  1. Me,Me Me - Flawless, tinted moisturiser.


I really really liked this product,I got this in number 02, which is called beige blush, I naturally have fair skin and normally go for ivory, but I found that the beige was actually not that dark and was perfect for my skin tone.

When I applied it, it was very light weight, felt like I wasn't wearing anything at all. It gave me a natural look and also good coverage. It evened out my skin tone really nicely, which you don't get with some tinted moisturisers, sometimes they can be a bit patchy, but this wasn't at all, which I thought was brilliant.
It did have a small smell to it, it wasn't off putting or overpowering, which is great because sometimes make-up products can be overpowering which can be distracting and it also causes me to get headaches.I liked the fact it had very little perfume in it.I thought it was also great because it includes a SPF 15.
overall I really liked this tinted moisturiser, it was easy to use. The packaging is simple, I think this is really good for people who don't need or want to wear foundation.
Using just a little bit of concealer under the eyes, any blemishes/red patches you may have, apply the moisturiser on top, a little bit of mascara and to finish it off with a nude lipstick or gloss. This will give you a natural everyday look.
I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

2. Max Factor - Lipfinity,lasting lip tint.


I got the Max Factor lip tint in 03 which is called Mellow Rose. I like the packaging of this, it is in a like pen/marker form as shown above. It is very easy to apply it does also have a nice enough finish to it.
The problem with it I felt was that it did wear off quite fast and had to keep reapplying it. After awhile it looks a bit dull looking and worn out, it drys out your lips a lot. You might need to wear a hydrating balm on top. It also tastes a bit funny, so as long as you don't lick your lips you should be fine :P 
I found that the Revlon just bitten is quite similar to this but with Revlon you do get a balm at the other end which I think is so good. So if you are to get a pen lip tint I would highly recommend the Revlon just bitten.

3. NYC - High Definition,separating mascara.


I loved,loved loved this mascara so much. I thought it had a good size wand and it was really slim and sleek. The wand didn't gather any clumps when being applied. I found that I really didn't need that much on, it gave me fand out, fuller looking lashes with no clumping what so ever. My lashes were completely evened out and separated out nicely. The mascara itself had no chemically fragrance what so ever. The packaging is quite slim aswell and in a very yellow yellow will make it easier to find in your handbag.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone and everyone, I think it's also at a reasonable and affordable price which is a mega bonus.

4. Benefit - Bene Tint


At the higher end of the the products I have Benefits Bend Tint.
You can use this for both lips and cheek bones.
I firstly used this on my lips. I did think it was really awkward to apply as the the applicator is this small slim brush. I had to usr my fingers which I didn't like because I ended up with a stained finger. As I put it on I noticed that it sinks into your lips really fast and can become patchy in places and becomes a little uneven. It also really dried out my lips, you would 100% have to wear a balm on top. It does wear off quite quickly too and can make lips to become very tight. 
On the other hand they have some really nice selection of colours and smells nice too.

I then lastly applied to my cheekbones. I did have to to apply with my fingers, the brush is to be fair a bit rubbish. I wad impressed with the results, it gave me s natural flushed finish and a nice glow. It is very light weight to put on and wear, I think I much preferr this to powdered blushers, as it feels a lot nicer. 
If you are going to use the brush though on cheekbones, do not leave it sit in your skin for too long as it will leave a stained line mark which is difficult to blend away. I do think this product is a little bit overpriced for what you actually get, which is not a lot as it runs out really fast.
Overall I thought this product is better used for cheeks than lips.
I would recommend this if you are looking to get a natural looking blush.
Sorry Benefit, better luck next time.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and helped you out a little. There will hopefully be more stuff like this on the way.
