Skincare

Weird but wonderful!♥

Hi Beauties ☼

Recently I have struggled with my skin, in particular my legs, they have been so dry & when I try to shave they’re so itchy!! BUT. I have finally found a solution.. what is this saviour I hear you ask? Mens shaving cream. Yes, I know it’s for shaving anyway, but most people don’t usually think to use mens shaving cream (as there are brands that make it for women!). I thought well its great for the face so I’ll try it on my legs & it worked.

I received this Dove Men + Care Sample with an order I made, but my boyfriend doesn’t clean shave so I stole it 😉 it turns out, its been well loved! At first I didn’t think it was going to do the job, as it is quite heavily scented with quite a musky ‘male’ smell, my skin doesn’t usually agree with highly scented products.

It is pretty self explanatory in how you use it, it is a cream product you can use wet or dry, but I find it best wet as it creates a lather on the legs which leaves very very soft & smooth legs! YAAAAY!! 😀 I’ve also tried this on my underarms & other areas, it does wonders, it leaves the skin so silky smooth & soft, I just can’t get enough 🙂

After trying this male shaving cream I’m in the market for a good ladies shaving cream, let me which ones you guys like so I can try more! 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha

15 Days of Beauty Challenge

Finale – Day 15: Fave Lip Balms!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

It’s the final day of the 15 Days of Beauty Challenge, where have the days gone? Time certainly flies…

Anyway, today I am sharing with you my favourite lip balms…

wpid-20140515_120306.jpg

1. The Body Shop’s Lip Butter in the chocolate scent. This is a creamy lip butter which feels quite nice on the lips, but for moisturisation it is not my fave, I love it for its scent. It smells just like chocolate 🙂

2. Nivea’s lip butter (original) is a great lip butter, it moisturises the lips so well & although it has no particular scent I quite like this as I know it is more for repairing your dry lips. The texture of this lip butter is kind of in-between vaseline & the body shop one, as it is creamy but kind of jelly like consistency which melts into the lips!

3. Carmex is by far my all time favourite. It never fails to moisturise my lips as I always go back to this one when they’re getting chapped or feeling dry. It also smells AMAZING, just like cherries & whats even better is that it contains an SPF of 15 which is brilliant for the summer time!!

4. Last but not least, it’s trusty vaseline. I have the original one, which I not only use for my lips but for my lashes too, as it conditions your lashes to help them grow fuller & longer. For the lips, yes it is nothing special, but it does what it says on the tin, it’s a ‘lip therapy’, it moisturises & keeps the lips hydrated 🙂

What is your fave lip balm?Let me know in the comments below! 🙂 xo

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this challenge, if you’d like to see me do any other challenges or TAGs then please do let me know! I always love to know what different challenges/TAGs are going round the beauty community! 😀

Day 12: Go To Daily Eyeshadows!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

Todays beauty challenge is ‘Go To Daily Eyeshadows’, so I’ve chosen the MUA Heaven & Earth Palette as this is probably my most used palette, for a single eyeshadow I’d probably go with my MAC eyeshadow in Naked Lunch. The palette has such beautiful, pigmented colours which are PERFECT for everyday wear. It is especially good since it is ONLY £4! What more could we want? 🙂

Have you tried any MUA products? If so, what’s your favourite? 🙂

**Question of the day – What’s your fave eyeshadow palette?**

Day 8: Your Current Nail Look!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

It’s day 8 of the 15 days of beauty challenge, today is ‘your current nail look’, so here are my nails, as they are now; I haven’t done anything to them for the picture (thats the whole point!!)…wpid-20140508_094250.jpgYes, my nails are not exciting at all. But I’m unable to wear nail varnish on a regular basis due to my job, I’m only a waitress but I’m dealing with food on a daily basis so we cannot wear anything on the nails!! :/ BUT. I will be painting my nails for the weekend (weekend off, YAY!) so I’ll post my nails for you all to see them, although I’m not the best at nails!! xo

Thank you for reading day 8 of the 15 days of beauty challenge. I’d love to know what colours you have on your nails or what nail polish you’re loving right now, just comment below or contact me on any of my social media websites 🙂

Day 7: Signature Scent/Fave Perfume!♥

Hi beauties.

Day 7 of the 15 day beauty challenge is signature scent/favourite perfume.
I have chosen two perfumes, Marc Jacobs’ Lola Rose & Taylor Swifts Wonderstruck perfumes! I really couldn’t decide between these fragrances as although Wonderstruck is probably my signature perfume; EVERYONE knows how much I love it & Taylor!!. However, I have been LOVING Lola Rose for spring/summer as it is such a light fruity/floral fragrance (it smells delicious!) & is great for everyday daytime wear 🙂

wpid-20140507_111003.jpg
(l-r) Marc Jacobs Lola Rose & Taylor Swift Wonderstruck!

I have already done a review of Taylor Swift Wonderstruck, so for that review click here. But if you’d like to see a review on Marc Jacobs Lola Rose then please let me know in the comments below 🙂

Thank you for reading & I hope you’re enjoying this 15 Days of Beauty Challenge! 😀

Lots of Love Natasha ♥

Day 6: Top 3 Makeup Brushes!♥

Hi beauties.

It’s day 6 of the 15 Days of Beauty Challenge – my top 3 makeup brushes – & of course they’re 3 of the Real Techniques brushes (for a review of the core collection click here). All the Real Techniques line are amazing & since buying one, I haven’t been able to stop buying the others, I probably have more than half the collection now – LOVE THEM!! ♥

wpid-20140506_100847.jpg

(Image) Left to right: Buffing brush – part of the Core Collection, base shadow brush & the blush brush!

☼ The buffing brushis excellent for liquid foundations, but all these brushes are so versatile so it can be used with any product! I use this brush to buff/stipple my foundation into the skin, it gives a flawless look to the skin & blends product so effortlessly!

☼ The base shadow brushblends shadows seamlessly, I use this brush for crease colours as it is kind of tapered, which I find makes it perfect for the crease, however, it could also be used to sweep one colour across the lid!

☼ The blush brushis a tapered face brush, I use this for contour as the tapered design makes applying contour effortless & doesn’t leave you with a streaky look!

If you’d like to see a review on any of these brushes (or others from the collection) then please feel free to comment below saying what you’d like a review for 🙂

Thank you all for reading day 6 of the 15 day beauty challenge, I hope you enjoyed it 🙂 xo

Dy 4: Favourite pair of shoes

My favourite pair of shoes are my Converse, I have the maroon coloured Hi-Top ones. They are so comfy, can be dressed up or down & what’s more, I GOT DISCOUNT 😉 (kind of cheated though. Used my twin sisters student card! SHHH)

Day 3: 15 Days of Beauty Challenge!♥

Hi beauties.

I’ve got another 15 Days of Beauty Challenge post for you! So here it is…

Day 3: Show us your heat styling tools!

I only own two heat styling tools, the Babyliss Pro Curling Wand & Nicky Clarke Colour Prolong Hair Straightener 🙂 I don’t use them everyday, I don’t have the need to straighten/curl my hair on a daily basis, but when I do I really enjoy using these tools.

** Don’t forget to protect your hair using heat protection spray or at least deep conditioning it every so often, as using heat on your hair (esp. on a daily basis) is very damaging!!!) **

20140503_181910

Babyliss Pro Curling Wand

♥ Retails for £24.99 here in the UK

♥ Adjustable temperature (max. 210 degrees)

♥ This wand is perfect for any style of curls, you can achieve both tight curls & loose curls. If you use the thinner side of the barrel you will get more of a ringlet curl, whereas if you use the wider end of the barrel you’ll achieve more of a beachy wave. This is the reason why I love this heat styling tool so much as it’s so versatile.

♥ I give it a 5/5 – you can’t go wrong with it!

20140503_181920

Nicky Clarke Colour Prolong Hair Straightener

♥ Retails for £19.99 here in the UK

♥ Adjustable heat control (max. temperature 230 degrees)

♥ Flashes green and blue when heating up & goes red when up to temperature/ready to use

♥ This is such a great straightener. I have owned straighteners that seem to take forever to properly straighten my hair, but this one, I only have to run it over my hair once & its poker straight (if you were wondering my hair is think & medium length, so it would work brilliantly on any hair type, I’m sure!!)

I hope you’ve all found this post interesting. I’d love to know what heat styling tools you use & why you love them 🙂 xo

Lots of Love Natasha ♥
