L’ORÉAL Rebel Push Up Review

Hi Everyone,

First of all Happy Monday I hope your all recovering from the weekend and are ready to start a new fresh week

Today I’m doing a quick review of a hair product I have been obsessed with recently.

Over the past few weeks now I have been using the Loreal Rebel Push Up texturizing mousse to give my hair an extra bit of volume. From using this product I’ve definitely seen a difference in my hair. As my hair is quite long at the moment and is also very thick, being honest I had doubts that this product just wouldn’t take to my hair but it did and I’m so happy it’s worked for me.

To explain the product a little bit more Here’s how I use it:

As this is a ‘texturizing powder in mousse’ I like to apply it to wet/damp hair. Normally once I’ve had my shower , towel dried and brushed my hair I like to apply a palm sized amount of the product into my hair. For me I apply it to my roots first and work my way down through my hair (which is probably not what a lot do but I just like having it all over my hair from top to bottom)

Once I have applied the product to my hair I then like to get my hair dryer and dry my hair fully as I find this works best for extra volume and once my hair is completely dry I then like to style it in the way I want it to.

As I mentioned this is a ‘texturizing powder in mousse’ so I’m sure a lot of you are thinking what even is a powder in mousse?

Well unlike a normal mousse this one acts like a powder once in your hair so it feels almost like a dry shampoo in your hair, it gives volume but your hair still looks perfect and is easy to style and brush.

Actually here’s a tip I figured out while messing around with this product. I find this product actually keeps curls in really well so basically I recently curled my hair (after using this product of course) and headed out but completely forgot to put hairspray in to hold my curls. Normally I would need a lot of hairspray to keep my curls from falling out but I’m honestly convinced this product actually helped to keep them in place and didn’t give my hair that awful sticky feeling to it. I have tried it purposely again since and the same things it held my curls perfectly in place. So along with some extra volume you can also have some perfectly in place curls.

I’ve also of course straightened my hair after using this product and it definitely gives it’s a nice extra bit of volume to the look.

I am obsessed with using this product and I think it’s going to be perfect for trying out different styles over the summer.

You can buy this product Here from feel unique where they currently have it at 15% off so you can purchase it for €15.30

It comes in a 250ml bottle so it’s definitely on sale at great value at the moment.

That’s it for today,

Much Love,

My Updated Skincare Routine – Reform Skincare

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. For today’s post I wanted to share with you 2 skincare products I have recently been obsessed with. I love to keep my skin looking its best so trying out new products to keep my skin at its best is what I always do. My skincare routine is constantly changing, for the better of course.

Recently I was sent some products from Reform Skincare which is a brand I had not used before until now. The products I received where the Glycolic Acid Foaming Cleanser and the Hyal Vitamin C+E Serum.

The Glycolic Acid Foaming Cleanser is a dream. I use this daily after I have removed my makeup. I have recently been using the Penneys Makeup remover wipes (yes I know i hate using makeup wipes BUT…) I find that by applying the Cleanser after it removes any access makeup and doesn’t leave my skin feeling as dry or irritated like makeup wipes usually do. This cleanser can be used daily to cleanse, exfoliate and improve skin texture. It is also suitable for all skin types. If you have been following me for a while now you will know i have really sensitive skin but I’ve had no reactions or irritation from using this product.

To use this product I normally apply a generous amount into the palm of my hand and then massage onto my face in circular motions. I then rinse it off with some warm water and using a face cloth I pat my skin dry.

Now this brand of skincare is a bit more on the expensive side. This Cleanser can be bought Here for €28.99 which I know is not in everyone’s budget but from my experience it has helped to clear up my skin a lot and leaves it feeling really soft and refreshed.

Moving onto the Hyal Vitamin C+E Serum (which is probably my favourite product out of the 2 if I’m being honest) this serum fights free radicals, brightens and evens skin tone and is also super antioxidant.

A little bit goes a long way with this product for sure. Using the dropper I normally apply about 4/5 drops of the product onto my face after I have used the Cleanser (and waited for my face to completely dry)

I normally apply this at night time just before I hop into bed so it is the last thing I use at night. This products has definitely helped reduce the redness in my skin and has also kept my skin looking great for the past 6 weeks of using it!

I find I have had less breakouts on my face since I’ve began using these products and I definitely feel such a difference once I have put on the serum. At first it makes my skin feel quite tight but after a minute or two my skin feels so smooth and even looks more alive almost instantly. As I said I like to use this at night time as I find it can then work on my skin overnight so it’s prefect the next morning.

As I did mention earlier this brand is quite expensive and won’t be in everyone’s budget which is totally understandable. This serum can be bought Here for €80 which in my opinion is a little steep for a tiny bottle of 30ml but it does do a great job on the skin and I’ve been using mine every night for about 6 weeks now and I’m not even half way through the bottle.

I definitely would recommend looking into this skincare brand if you haven’t before as the cater for all types of skin and have a HUGE range of skincare products etc which I definitely will pick some other things up from the range to try out.

That’s it for today

Today I thought I’d post a quick recipe to get you in the mood for Pancake Tuesday!

I hope you all have your pancakes ready to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I thought since its shrove Tuesday and everyone eats pancakes why not post a simple quick and easy recipe I use to make the perfect pancakes and it works all the time for me!

Every year for Pancake Tuesday I always buy ingredients to make my own pancakes and also I buy a ready made pack just in case they go wrong but more then less they always turn out right! And most importantly DELICIOUS 😋

I love pancakes and love trying them with different toppings my favourites would be the simple lemon, golden syrup, butter and sugar. Also I do love them served hot with ice cream and chocolate spread because who doesn’t love Nutella? So Yummy!!!!

You can eat pancakes with really anything like fruits such as  strawberries or even some sweet things like marshmallows and chocolate. Whatever way you like to eat them all you need is this simple recipe to make the perfect pancake.

What you will need to make the perfect pancakes is:

3. Pour batter into a jug and allow to stand for about 30 minutes.

4. Brush a pancake pan or frying pan with oil. When the pan is hot, give the batter a stir before pouring a thin layer onto the pan.

5. Fry until golden brown. Turn and fry the other side until brown also.

6. Stack pancakes on a large plate, as they are cooked.

7. Spread with chocolate sauce, roll and add ice cream

Why Pureology Hydrate Superfood treatment is my new favourite hair product

Hi everyone

Now I don’t know about you but myself anyway I don’t tend to reach for hair masks that often I don’t really know why I guess I just never really gave them a chance. Recently I’ve been trying out this new product from Pureology and I thought I’d share it with you all.

Today I’m doing a quick review on the Pureology Hydrate Superfoods Treatment which is basically a hair mask. As I’ve mentioned I’ve never really been a fan of hair masks but this one I just really wanted to try out. Here’s a little background on the product to fill you in on what it’s all about:

Pureology Hydrate Superfoods Treatment nourishes dry hair with the wonders of superfoods. Pureology’s 100% vegan treatment masks are packed with lots of essential nutrients to moisturize and soften your hair leaving it more manageable and of course looking it’s best. The Coconut Oil in this product adds moisture and strength while the Avocado Oil provides deep nourishment and moisture, leaving your hair looking healthy and hydrated. This is also a Silicone-free formula and AntiFade complex so it actually helps protect colour treated hair.

As my hair is dyed I’m always a bit hesitant to trying new hair products as I’m afraid it will strip the colour from my hair. This product is said to help protect colour treated hair and I can assure you it sticks to its word. I’ve used this product a few times now and honestly my hair looks and feels even better then before. It feels really healthy as my hair is blonde so dead/dry ends is common with me and I’m swearing that this product has helped get my hair in good condition over the past couple of weeks as it’s the only product (bar shampoo and conditioner obviously) that I’ve used in my hair my normal shampoo and conditioner routine hasn’t changed. I find it’s even easier to style my hair too. I would totally recommend using this product if you suffer with dry and damaged hair, maybe you dye your hair often and it needs a bit of TLC this product will for sure help you out.

Some benefits of using this product:

• Leaves your hair hydrated and vibrant

• Avocado Oil provides moisture and helps to strengthen hair

• Coconut Oil hydrates the hair and scalp

• It’s Silicone-free

• This product is 100% Vegan

• Antifade Complex

How to use:

To use this product just Shampoo your hair as normal then Apply a quarter sized amount of the Superfood Vitality Treatment to wet and freshly shampooed hair. Wait for 5 minutes while the superfoods treat the hair. Then Rinse.

(I would recommend using a hair mask while your taking a bath. So if you wash your hair first then apply the hair mask you can sit back and relax for those 5 minutes in a nice warm bubbly bath before rinsing the product out to reveal perfect hair.)

I use this product once a week as I find that works best for me. I really feel the colour in my hair and appearance of my hair looks 100 times better since using this product. It’s made styling it so simple and it even keeps my hair straighter for longer. I think it could be my new favourite hair product.

I honestly am such a fan of this product (I really didn’t think I would be)

From someone who never really bothered with hair masks I feel like I could try lots of different ones now as this one has just exceeded its expectations with me.

If your looking to purchase the Pureology Superfoods Hairmask it is available at Cult Beauty and in Peter Mark stores nationwide. It’s really affordable too at €25 a pot which will last you months.

That’s it for today! Let me know what your favourite hair masks/treatments are? I’d love to know

Much Love,

Formula 10.0.6 Skincare- REVIEW

Hey Everyone!

I’m sure everyone is now well back to reality after the festive season I know I am but one thing for me that’s been letting me down over the holidays is my skin. My skin has been really bad lately if I’m honest and it’s been even hard to cover it up with makeup. I’m putting it down to eating so much rubbish over the entire month of December.

A couple of weeks back I was sent some products from a brand called Formula 10.0.6 and I completely forgot I had them until I went looking for some products to sort my skin out. I tried them out once or twice over Christmas but not enough to see if they actually made a difference to my skin so over the weekend I put them to the rest properly.

For the past 5 days I’ve been using the Seriously Shine Free Mattifying oil free moisturizer in the mornings to keep my skin looking well all day long and each evening I’ve been using the Thirst No More Moisturizer after I take off my makeup to keep my skin feeling really hydrated. I really have found a difference in my skin the redness has reduced, my acne is clearing up and my skin feels so fresh and AMAZING!!!!

Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer

This is a matte finish Moisturizer so it keeps the skin smooth and Shine Free all day long which is why I would use this in the mornings before I apply my makeup. I like to just use a small amount of the product as a little bit goes along way. I really love how this product contains aloe vera as aloe vera is a favourite ingredient of mine and I find it does wonders for my skin.

Thirst No More Moisturizer

This is a powerful Moisturizer and contains a natural complex combination of watermelon, lentil and apple extracts (I think that sounds absolutely divine) I find it’s best to use this Moisturizer after I remove my makeup to give my skin a bit of a lift and make it feel hydrated and fresh again. I find by using this in the evenings my skin feels and looks great when I wake up in the mornings. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and it has a nice natural radiant glow to it.

I also received some samples of the

Down to the pore blackhead pore strips which I was really happy about. I like to use pore strips every now and again (I would not use them all the time) I like the fact that pore strips remove dirt deep down in the skin and it always leaves my skin feeling like new, smooth and fresh. Being honest I haven’t tried these pore strips (YET) but I have used pore strips from other brands and if these ones are as good as their Moisturizers well then HAPPY DAYS!!!

Along with the pore strips I received some samples of their mud masks. I received the Deep Down Detox ultra cleansing mud mask and the Pores be Pure skin clarifying mud mask again I haven’t had a chance to try these out but I’m sure they will be amazing.

I’m so glad I have discovered this brand it is definitely one I will be using from now on. I find it really has cleared up my skin and this is only the first week I’m so excited to see how I get on more with these products. The best thing is this brand is super affordable too with the Moisturizer only €7!!!!!

Formula 10.0.6 Is available from Here

That’s it for today have any of you tried out this brand before? Let me know in the comments below!

Much Love,

Ciara Xxx

Too Faced Pretty Little Planner- Review

Hi Everyone

First off Happy New Year! I can’t believe we are already entering a new year 2017 was one of my favourite years with lots of exciting opportunities and I’m hoping 2018 will top it with even more exciting opportunities throughout the year.

Before Christmas I was so lucky to be sent the palette in which I’m going to talk about today. I’ve held off doing this post until now as I feel it’s more appropriate for now then it was before Christmas but it works either way I guess.

As part of their Best Year Ever Christmas Collection (2017) Too Faced released the Pretty Little Planner Set, which is a palette I have been absolutely lovely recently. One thing I love about this palette/set is that it’s personalized to the year 2018 (these type of things really get me)

In this set it includes:

• Eyeshadow Palette

• Deluxe Better Than Sex Mascara

• Limited edition Too Faced Agenda Cover

• Year-Round Agenda (2018) with Sticker Sheet

The eyeshadow Palette includes 15 stunning pigmented shades with a mixture of matte and shimmer finishes. They all have the cutest names. As this is part of a Christmas collection the names of the shadows are very much named around the holiday season but I feel that with the 2018 planner inside now is the most appropriate time to use the palette. Here’s a list of the shadow names who agrees they’re super cute?

  • Good Girl
  • Rise&Shine
  • Why Not?
  • White Christmas
  • Secret Santa
  • Silent Night
  • Werkshop
  • Coffee First
  • Snooze U Lose
  • Good As Gold
  • Dollhouse
  • Wrap It Up
  • Break The Ice
  • Elfie Selfie
  • Booville

Of course I have been using this quite a lot over the Christmas season and I’d have to say my go to shades are Booville, Snooze U Lose and White Christmas although I love all the shades them three are just so suitable to my eye colour and for either a day time or a night time look.

All of the shades are super pigmented as I’m sure most of you will know of the very popular Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette which is known for its quality this palette is much the same.

This set makes the perfect gift and I’m sure anyone who received one over the Christmas period would agree.

This palette retails at £34/€41 and is available in Debenhams

Overall I adore this palette and I hope you guys love it too. The pigmentation of each shadow is beautiful and they last all day long. I really enjoy using this eyeshadow palette as each shade is individually beautiful and together create the perfect looks. I have just started writing some plans for the year in my Planner! Do you guys have any ideas of what you’d like to see me do so I can improve throughout the year?

Let me know in the comments below

That’s it for today!

Much Love,

Caolion Day&Night Pore Care System-Review 

Hey everyone 
Happy November! It’s finally appropriate to talk about Christmas! I love seeing everywhere with their Christmas decorations starting to appear it makes everywhere so much prettier. 

Today is a review of the Caolion product review. This is definitely a beauty item to add to your Christmas wishlist or even to buy for someone as a present/stocking filler.

This is the Day & Night Pore Care System from caolion. I’ve been using this product for a couple of months now and I really love it. As this is a duo product you get the 

CAOLION PORE TIGHTENING BOUNCE CREAM on the top. This helps to hydrate and control sebum in the skin. I normally apply this to my skin in the mornings and let it work it’s magic throughout the day. On the bottom you get the 
CAOLION PORE TIGHTENING MEMORY SLEEPING MASK which tightens pores while you sleep. So this is basically a product I apply on my skin at night time and go to sleep with it on meaning that when I wake up in the mornings my skin is looking its best. I had never tried a mask that you sleep in before but this is definitely not the last one I’ll try.
So as this is a day and night duo I’m sure your asking yourself what do each of them do?

Well the Day cream works on Natural Brightening and helps to make your skin look as bright and revived as possible it Controls sebum and hydrates the skin with its unique light & bouncy cream texture, leaving your skin bright and moisturized whereas the Night mask works on Tightening your pores overnight to ensure your skins looks it’s best when you wake up on the mornings. It is an Intense pore tightening sleeping mask (meaning it enhances elasticity) While the cooling effect calms the skin, the memory formula tightens pores and enhances skin elasticity overnight so your basically achieving prefect skin as you sleep what could be better? 

What are the benefits of using this duo? 

Day cream Benefits?:

1) Calms the skin with cooling effect Calms irritated skin with cooling effect 
2) it’s Non-sticky and quick absorbing Bouncy cream texture absorbs quickly into skin without stickiness, leaving the skin feeling really hydrated. 
3) it’s is a Sebum control and hydration Moisture cream that hydrates, controls oil and sebum 
4) Contains certified brightening + anti-wrinkle substance Enhances elasticity and complexion, leaving the skin healthy. 

Night Cream Benefits?:

* Glows

* Cools

* Hydrates

* Lifting

* Hydrates
I would really recommend this cream for any age group and is definitely worth investing in if your serious about having good and healthy skin. It’s definitely worth a gift/stocking filler for someone too as I’m sure anyone would love to receive this for Christmas

You can pick this product up in boots for £30/€35


That’s all for today make sure to follow @caolionuk on Instagram for updates

Anatomicals Face Masks Review

Hi everyone,

Since the weather today is so horrible I thought it would be appropriate to post my review on the Anatomicals Face Masks because what else would you be doing on a rainy day like this.

Recently I received 4 anatomicals face masks sachets to try out and I honestly absolutely love them. They feel like yoghurt on my face!! I had never tried them brand before but I’m so in love with their products and they’re so affordable too. These sachets are so easy to use and simple to take with you anywhere you go. My go to mask was the Hawaii Five Glow hydrating face mask which comes in a really cool bright yellow pack. Mentioning packaging I absolutely love the anatomicals packaging its really cool, bright and out there.

To use the mask all you have to do is tare open the packet across the dotted line and apply the product evenly onto a clean face. Leave it on for 15 minutes while you sit back and relax. After 15 minutes, once it has dried and becomes like a tight layer on your skin you can then wash it off using a face cloth soaked with warm water.

I can really only describe this mask as basically yoghurt on my face as it feels really gooey and looks very white in colour. The consistency of the mask is really creamy and buttery and just pretty much glides onto your face with ease. I like to apply a thick layer of the mask and leave it on for about 25 minutes before I rinse it out. It smells very fresh and just like tropical fruits.

I really found this mask was super hydrating on my skin and left it feeling really soft, smooth and fresh. I didn’t have any breakouts or reaction to this mask which makes it even better for me. Along with the great smell from this mask it really does make you feel like your relaxing on a tropical island.

I would really recommend these face masks and are perfect for a gift for someone especially with Christmas just around the corner these are for sure a gift everyone would love.
Anatomicals have a huge range of products to choose from so if a face mask isn’t your style your sure to find something else from their range to suit you. If your looking to purchase anything from the Anatomicals range id definitely recommend checking out Cloud10 Beauty.

Heres a link so you can have a browse through their fantastic range:

Anatomicals is the company that ‘Only Wants You For Your Body’ and they will leave your body looking and smelling good enough to eat. They manufacture some of the funkiest and fun paraben free toiletries on the planet that are super hard working and amazingly affordable. So exactly like oxygen, water, gravity and chocolate fudge cake, you’ll soon wonder how on earth you ever managed to survive without them.

Hope you all enjoyed todays post make sure to also give them a follow on instagram to keep up to date with whats going on: @AnatomicalsUK

Why I choose Miceller Water over Makeup wipes

Hey everyone 

So I am such a huge fan of miceller water to remove my makeup and have been ever since I discovered it. I don’t use any makeup wipes on my skin as it really dries out my skin and leaves it feeling very irritated so I tend to AVOID but with miceller water it removes my makeup with ease.

I always tend to reach for the garnier miceller water but recently I discovered a new brand (well to me it’s new as I’d previously never heard of them) called Enbryolisse. I received a bottle of their “lotion micellaire” and decided to give it a go in removing my makeup and wow I’m so impressed. As mentioned I only use miceller water to remove my makeup so I was excited to give this one a go. Best thing is it’s suitable for all types of skin. If you’ve read my previous blog posts you will know that my skin is quite sensitive so I always hesitate in trying out new brands. This miceller water honestly left my skin feeling so fresh and with no residue it makes it even better.

Practical and speedy for gentle total cleansing and make-up removal using this products it is suitable for the face, eyes and lips so removes all of your makeup with ease. This Micellar Lotion is so so gentle on skin it is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin. I honestly find this product so good it removes every trace of make-up, even water-resistant products.

To use the miceller water I like to apply some product to a Cotten pad then rub it all over my face. My skin does be  left soothed, soft and toned, and my complexion looks radiant and clear which I absolutely love.

You can buy this product from boots which is where I get mine it retails at £15.99 working out around €17 but it’s definitely worth it for a 250ml bottle and lasts ages.
Make sure to follow them on Instagram here’s a link: http://instagram.com/embryolisseuk

Also if you want to check out their gorgeous range of products here’s a link to their website: http://www.embryolisse.co.uk/
Hope you all enjoyed this post!
