First Impression Friday

First Impressions Friday: S&G What A Peeling Face Mask ♡

Hi beauties,

Since its Friday I thought I would bring you a first impressions. Something I’m going to be doing each week 🙂 Aiming for my posts to be every Monday, Wednesday & Friday, for anyone who wondered!❤

I have used a couple of the other Soap & Glory sheet masks, if you’d like a review of those let me know 🙂

Anyway, I got this What a Peeling Mask free when I spent so much on Soap & Glory products!🙂 This mask is very straight forward to use… it’s basically a tacky bright pink mask that you smear all over your face, there was a little spatula included which I used to spread the product on my face. This was easy enough to do but as it doesn’t reseal I wanted to use it all up so piled it all on. This was fine but made the waiting time about 40 minutes rather than the 25 minutes they suggest for the mask to set in order for it to be peeled off the face.

I thought that the product was a sample at first but after having a look online it seems this is the full size product! Above is how they come packaged. You get 2 pots of mask which would do your face twice. The only downside to this product is the packaging, I would prefer the pots to be resealable! So next I’ll either get a different pot & put the rest in for another use, as I did waste half of it by loading it all on at once. Or get a friend or my partner to try it too! 🙂

Below is an image of when I’ve just applied the mask. You can see it’s glistening as it’s wet. It goes matte once dried.

You can definitely tell the mask has dried as your face feels super stiff & tight! I love peeling these masks off it’s super satisfying, it does hurt a bit where there’s peach fuzz hairs on your face but grin & bare it & you’ll be fine. Haha!

Once I had peeled it all off I was surprised that my face wasn’t bright red, it actually looked really nice. It felt so much smoother too like the impurities had actually been pulled from my pores! Yaaay!!

I always thought these sort of masks were gimiky but it seems once again, Soap & Glory have done it. This mask is fab, yes I have only tried it once, but usually if my skin is going to react it’ll do it straight away. I’ve never once had a reaction or broke out using soap & glory products, which is why I keep trying more & more!😍

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product as it does what it says! Like I say the only downside is the packaging but if the product is good then I suppose we can let them off! For a first impression I am definitely very pleased.

♡ Lush Marmalade Jelly Bomb ♡

Hi lovelies ☺

If you read my blog before you’ll know I LOVEEEE Lush!! Who doesn’t right!?😍

So when I discovered they were doing jelly bombs I just had to have one… I do wish I’d bought multiple though!!😂

Anyway, I was browsing Lush & the lovely assistant came over, after asking me what sort of things I like he pointed me towards this fairly new bomb… after he explained how it works & it’s benefits of moisturising your skin while relaxing you I couldn’t resist!! I’m glad he did mention it to me as I’d never seen this baby before 😮

What lush claim

Please look after this Jelly Bomb and uplifting orange flower absolute will look after your mood. Get in a warm bath, toss in this brightening brunch of Brazilian orange and grapefruit oils and relax as jelly covers the water, softening skin and spreading joy as it goes.

This jelly bomb details for £4.95 per bomb which to me it is definitely worth it. If you use lush a lot you’ll know they aren’t super duper cheap but not expensive.. after all their ingredients are natural & cruelty free based!!

This jelly bomb definitely does relax you.. it is by far my favourite one I’ve tried! I really wish I’d picked a few of them up as I don’t live close to a Lush store 😕 #sadtimes not only did I feel super relaxed after this bath but my skin felt AMAZING!!! Literally like never before.. considering I’m now 28 weeks pregnant any moisturisation & calming ingredients are vital.. I had the best nights sleep that night 🙂😍

Here’s how it looked in my bath…

As it was dissolving the bath water did go very jelly like.. if you like a nice hot bath, like me, the bomb will dissolve totally & the water will no longer feel like jelly which is nice. Although it does still feel super moisturising & glossy to the touch!🙂

As you can see the water is no longer a jelly like consistency! What other thing I did love was there was actual orange pieces in the bath that just made it smell even more divine 😍

Basically, you can tell this is my new favourite & I’ll definitely be buying HEAPS more!!🙂

Have you tried this or any of the other jelly bombs!?

Let’s be friends 🙂

Hi beauties 🌞

Last week I decided to nip into town since I needed a few skincare items. Obviously I didn’t just buy what I needed, haha. So today I’m  sharing with you what I picked up from Boots and Superdrug!:)

L’Oréal had a 3 for 2 offer, naturally I took it upon myself to buy 3 items. I’ve been wanting to repurchase the True Match foundation for agesssss now, so decided to pick it up. I got shade W1 as N1, the shade I got before, was a bit ghostly.
Click here for an in depth review.

image

The second L’Oréal product I picked up was the Brow Plumper;  my twin beautifulbreakable adores and highly recommends. Definitely look forward to a review!

image

Thirdly, I got L’Oréals Lumi Magique Concealer. I’ve not tried this so I’ll keep you all posted 🙂

image

I was running low on my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, so repurchased it. LOVEEEE this. Definitely my go to concealer!! 🙂

image

I recently discovered how much I love this Soap and Glory Sugar Crush scent so had to pick up the body wash. If you haven’t smelt it. YOU NEED TO!!

image

I was in need of a new face cleanser so decided to give this Soap and Glory Peaches and Cream Deep Cleansing Milk a try. I’ll keep you posted on it!:)

image

I’ve already done a ‘First Impression’ on this Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed. Click here to find out more about it!

image

I’ve always been curious about Micellar Water so I decided to try this Garnier one. A review will be on its way! 🙂

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday (on saturday!) ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

I was meant to get this up yesterday but was soooo busy.. so here it is today, my First Impressions on the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed!:)

What Soap & Glory claim

• 1-MINUTE HOT PORECLEAR™ TECHNOLOGY – a fast-acting, smoothing and polishing blend of micropumice, salicylic acid and hot clay, which activates with water contact
• GLYCERIN – to help skin feel soft and supple
• unique COLOUR-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY – (blue indicates when it’s activated)
• PLUS surface-polishing micro beads
• use weekly on areas susceptible to blackhead build-up
• strategically formulated for oily/combination skin

image

What I thought

In Boots it retails for £11.50 and for that price you can’t really say no to trying it.
I first heard about this product from The Makeup Chair on YouTube (definitely check out her channel!!). I always go by her recommendations as she always trials products thoroughly before! 🙂

Although this is only a first impression I really loved the results. My skin felt lovely & soft. Also, I have some blackheads on my nose, they seemed to be reduced.

When you first apply this its a creamy coloured product, with a cream like texture and micro beads for exfoliation. Once you start rubbing it into the face it turns a blue colour. This means the hot poreclear technology has been activated. To be honest you can tell it’s working as your face feels warmer. It does feel strange for a minute or so.

image

You leave it on for about 3 minutes, it makes your face a bit stiff but is tacky to tough. After the time was up I just washed it off using a muslin cloth & patted my face dry with a towel.

Overall I really loved this product after just one use, I’ll definitely keep you updated on how I get on with it.

Have you tried this product? 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha

Hi beauties 🌞

Recently I’ve been loving a simple eye makeup look with a bright red lip.

The red lip of choice has been Topshop Screen Siren; forgot how much I loved this colour! 😍

I just did my normal foundation routine,  updated foundation routine using Bourjois Healthy Mix coming soon! 🙂

This Topshop lippy applies so beautifully & effortlessly,  its an easy red you can just throw on!

*side note*
I’m seriously hoping for the sun to come back out here in the UK, so I can wear this cute dress I bought for holiday last year..
