Paula’s Choice- Skin Perfecting 1% BHA Lotion Review

So I’m suffering with a few blocked pores on my chin area, I think this is due to a mix of experimenting with so many products on my face and good old hormones!!! I have to add at this point the the No7 makeup mirror with x5 magnification really help you to pick out all these little flaws!!

My main issue was raised bumps under my skin which never came to a head (meaning I couldn’t have a good old squeeze) I trawled through Google to find out what these where and after discovering they seem to be blocked pores I came across Paula’s choice website which advises that products containing BHA clean inside the pore. What I love most about this company is that you can order samples so I went right on ahead and ordered 2 samples which I thought would be most relevant to my ‘chin’ problem.

Yves Saint Laurent- Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation in BR10 Review With Swatches

Yves saint Laurent  touche eclat foundation

It isn’t very often that a brand like Yves Saint Laurent make face products pale enough for my extremely pale skin so I just had to try their Touche Eclat foundation to see if it lives up to its iconic Touche Eclat counterpart.

Available in a rather impressive 22 shades I was matched with BR10- Beige rose, this is the palest available shade with a rather pink undertone.


Nails Inc Boxset – My Nail Polish Diary Review

I just had to mention this brilliant box set of Nails inc polishes I got for Christmas. I have not got the steadiest hand in the world so I tend to stick to just a coating of see-through polish on my nails but Nails inc polish goes on lovely and hardly ever smudges… it even makes me look like a pro!


The perfect dupe?! Clarins’ Beauty Flash Balm’ Vs Soap and Glory ‘Bright here-‘Bright Now’

I am now fast approaching 30 (ouch!) and I am after that youthful glow that came to me oh so naturally before aging and sleepless nights prevailed!!!  One of my favourite products to achieve a beautiful glow and well rested look is Clarins ‘Beauty Flash Balm’ I am probably delayed in my ravings about this product as I know it is a all-time classic favourite of makeup artists, beauty gurus and bloggers…. But I will give you my two pence worth anyway!
