September Empties

I didn't expect to be able to do an empties post this month, but as is the way, quite a few things ran out all in the past week! Here's what I emptied in September!

Soap and Glory Clean on Me Shower Gel 500ml - £5.50
This came in a set with other S&G products, bought as a present for one Christmas or birthday. It's taken me absolutely AGES to use up! But I absolutely love it, it's definitely a favourite! It smells lovely and the formula is really thick and creamy. It contains built in body lotion, leaving my skin nice and smooth after use. 
Purchase myself? Yes I will - once I've got through all The Body Shop shower gels stocked in the bathroom cupboard!!

The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Butter 50ml - £2.00
I have soooo many body butters to get through as well as the shower gels from The Body Shop. This was given to me from a friend. The scent is strong and sweet - you can smell it for ages after use. The formula is thick and indeed very buttery! But not at all greasy. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin hydrated and soft.
Purchase myself? No - I love fruity smells but it's not my favourite, I think there's nicer ones available.

Tesco Smooth Conditioner in Coconut 750ml - £0.88
I mentioned this product in my Beauty Cheat Sheet: Shaving post. I use this to shave my legs instead of buying shaving foam by Gilette or Veet. It's much better value for the size of the product and lasts for a long time.
Re-purchase? Yes I already have, but I've gone for the Jojoba & Basalm version instead.

Lush Fresh Face Mask Samples - Catastrophe Cosmetic and BB Seaweed - FREE
After not getting on with Cosmetic Warrior, a lovely sales assistant in my local Lush offered me these two samples to try to see how I got on with them. My personal favourite of the two is BB Seaweed - it left my combination skin feeling and looking amazing! 
Purchase full size? Yes I will be purchasing BB Seaweed for definite!

Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Parfait - £17.85 (online price)
This blusher is a pure mineral blusher, which means it doesn't contain oils, talc, dyes or fragrance and so is perfect for my spot prone skin. It's a shame it's empty as the colour is lovely, a light yet dusky pink, suited for pale skins. 
Re-purchase? Yes it's on order! I actually was going to go for a cheaper pressed mineral blusher by Youngblood Cosmetics from an online discount site. But their system somehow cancelled my order (I found this out by emailing them 7 days later after getting my order confirmation) and I wasn't prepared to re-order and wait for it to arrive. So I went back to what I know and love, albeit spending more money than I was going to.

What have you used up this month? Do you use any of the products above?

3. Islaay - Drip Nail Tutorial

Review: Moonie Face Cloths

"Great skin doesn't have to be complicated, that's my inspiration behind Moonie."

This quote comes from the lovely Kia, the creator of Moonie face cloths and a fellow blogger over at Make Me Up. I saw on Twitter that Kia was to announce the launch of something exciting, so signed up to her exclusive preview. As soon I read it I knew that her Moonies were something I had to try!

What are Moonies?

Moonies are natural, unbleached, muslin face cloths and are handmade by Kia herself. They don't contain any chemicals and are suitable for all skin types. The muslin acts as a natural exfoliator and are designed to be a more effective way of cleaning your skin. They come in a pack of 3 for £5.99, which is a bargain if you ask me as that's less than £2.00 per Moonie! P&P was also free when I purchased these (limited time only offer - still on I believe!) The brand is fronted by the very cute and adorable Neil.

My Moonies arrived very quickly and packaged beautifully as you can see from the pictures below, complete with my very own Neil!

They are circular in shape and in my opinion the perfect size for using on your face. The texture is slightly rough to the touch but not harsh or irritating. I've been using them as a treat 1-2 times a week to remove my cleanser and they provide a gentle exfoliation that leaves my skin looking fresh and healthy. The Moonie also helped ease a patch of dry skin I'd been suffering with for a few days recently and any spots I have generally appear calmer and slightly less inflamed after use. Very impressive! They are also suitable to use everyday if you want to make them part of your daily skincare routine.

Another great thing about Moonies is that they can be used for other purposes beside cleansing- I've also been using them to steam my face and to remove face masks. I don't know why I haven't used a cloth to remove face masks before, it's so much easier!! Plus you can pop them in the washing machine to re-use again and again!

The Verdict
I think Moonie face cloths are so versatile and would be a great addition to anyone's skincare routine. I'm absolutely loving them! I love the fact that they're handmade, of good quality and that you can see the thought and effort put into them from the product and packaging. Plus they're not expensive and as they're washable, should last me for quite a long time!

You can find out more and purchase Moonies here

Have you tried Moonie face cloths? Do you use any kind of face cloths for cleansing or otherwise?

Guest Post - Miss Jayne Becca: Five Beauty Products I'm Loving Right Now

Hello everyone! My name is Jayne from Miss Jayne Becca and I am delighted that I was asked to write a guest post for Beauty Bird. As a beauty blogger I love discovering new products but I am also loyal to the ones that work for me. So I thought that I would introduce you to five beauty products I am loving right now!


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Rose and Lavender | £19.75 (150ml): I am sure you have all heard of the infamous Cleanse & Polish before. I hadn't actually got round to trying this cleanser previously but once I saw that they were bringing out a special edition with rose and lavender oils I knew I had to have it. I must say that I am impressed! It leaves your skin feeling very clean, soft and I also find that it brightens my skin. Using a muslin cloth it lifts away dead skin cells and it even removes stubborn waterproof mascara. This cleanser is certainly worth investing in and if you purchase the special edition £2 will go towards supporting the vital work of The Prince's Trust.

Lush Eau Roma Toner Water | £3.95 (100g): I featured this product in my August Favourites post. It is great for refreshing your skin when it is hot and sticky. As the weather is now changing I have found that I use it after I have been in the shower. It adds moisture back into my skin. I love anything with rose in!

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lily | £5.10: I do love a nice lip balm and I have been using this constantly. The Burt's Bees lip balms are full of lovely natural ingredients like shea butter and coconut oil -- they leave your lips feeling hydrated and smooth. As this one is tinted you also get a subtle hint of colour which is perfect for on the go everyday wear. A handbag essential!

Topshop Nail Polish in Celestial | £5.00: This has been my go to nail polish over the past couple of weeks. I think that Topshop nail polishes are such good value for money. The quality is better than some nail polish brands which cost twice as much. I love this colour, it is bright but not 'too much' if you know what I mean! The perfect colour as we go into Autumn.

Vitkor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau De Parfum | £48 (30ml): I was lucky enough to get a Debenhams gift card for my birthday so I put it to good use and bought the Flowerbomb perfume. I have been lusting over this since Christmas so it was nice to finally be able to purchase it! If you like floral fragrances you will love this as the key notes are rose, jasmine and orchid. I cannot get enough of this perfume -- one spray lasts all day!

What beauty products are you currently loving?

Guest Post - Tattooed Tealady: Top 5 Bronzers

Hi everyone, my name is Sophia and I run a little blog called Tattooed Tealady. I mainly blog about beauty whether it be makeup, skincare, body care or hair care. But I also add the odd lifestyle post and book review in every now and then to mix things up! I am here today writing a guest post for the lovely Sasha and I am going to be sharing with you my top five bronzers!

Tealady’s Top 5 Bronzers
I’ve always been a bronzer girl. I’m naturally tanned as my family is half Cypriot. So I’ve been blessed with naturally tanned olive skin than tans beautifully in the sun. For me, bronzer is the natural choice for my face and complexion and I reach for bronzer 9 times out of 10, and only rarely use a blusher. I have a lot of bronzers, I just can’t stop buying them because they are something I use everyday! And picking my top five was a hard thing to do! But I got there eventually, and here they are! 

It seems only fair to start with my absolute favourite bronzer, ever. A lot of you will have heard of this bronzer as it is a favourite in the blogosphere. When I bought it, I felt shocked, scared and nervous as I passed over my card to pay £25 for this bronzer. Yes, £25. But my golly gosh was it worth it. I have never found a bronzer as perfect as this, and it really deserves all the hype it gets. It’s great for contouring, great for normal bronzer application, and all over. It has a very, slight, teeny-tiny shimmer to it, but to me it’s a matte bronzer and I adore it!

This bronzer is an absolute bargain buy at just £1.99! It’s also the bronzer I have repurchased the most over the years. It is quite a shimmery bronzer, but in a ‘golden glow’ kind of way. I love this for bronzing and for highlighting and it looks lovely on the apple of your cheeks! My favourite product from Natural Collection!!

This is the newest bronzer in my collection but I love it! It’s got five gorgeous shades ranging from a beautiful highlight to beautiful golden bronze shades. You can use them separately, or together, but I opt for using them together. It is so easy to blend too, I just love it! And again, it’s a total bargain bronzer at just £3.49!!

This one is a little bit more on the pricey side like the NARS one and retails for £20.50. But for a mineral, cruelty-free, vegan friendly, halal certified and general all round good for your skin organic bronzer, I love it! It’s quite matte, and beautiful for contouring and perfect for those days when you want a modest, subtle bronzed look!

Natural Collection / Inika / BM Beauty / NARS / Sunkissed Bronzing  

BM Beauty Summer Warmth
I got a sample of this bronzer in a Glossybox and at first I was like ‘WHY! It’s horrible!’ But I have been using it more and more lately and it’s actually beautiful. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size once I have finished it, because it’s a reasonable £8 for a cruelty free brand. I really love this for contouring because it’s great at defining my face!

So those are my top five bronzers! I genuinely believe there is a bronzer out there for any skin tone and complexion. I know a lot of paler beauties tend to stray away from bronzers but there is definitely one out there for everyone, even the palest of beauties! Do you have any of these bronzers? What is your favourite bronzer? I’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations! You can find me on my blog over at Tattooed Tealady, or on Twitter where I am always happy to have a natter! @tattooedtealady! I also run a weight-loss blog which you can find over at Bloggers Go Skinny! I am also running a giveaway on my blog right now to win 29 products! It’s International! So pop over and enter for your chance to win! I hope you all enjoyed my post, and thank you Sasha for having me!
Love, Sophia xo


Thank you very much to Sophia for this brilliant guest post! Do make sure you check out her blog, it's a regular read of mine!

Guest Post - Never Too Broke for Beauty: Favourite Products for Disguising Spot Prone Skin

Hello, my name is Katy and I've been asked to write a guest post for Ramblings of a Beauty Bird. When I was asked to write a guest post I was very flattered because it is such a great blog! I didn't have to think twice about it because anyone who follows Beauty Bird on Twitter will know that she is one of the nicest bloggers on the block!

Normally, you'll find me over at Never Too Broke for Beauty where I mainly post reviews about lovely cosmetics. When I was asked to be a guest blogger I was a bit stumped for ideas, but then I had a huge breakout - I'm talking spots galore all over my chin. With this came a surge of inspiration, I'll write a post about my favourite products for disguising spot prone skin!

I often spend my mornings in a state of panic and desperation trying to cover up a new breakout and I feel like after years of practice I've got this routine down to an art form. I'm not saying my skin looks flawless but it looks a darn sight better after I've applied my makeup than before!

My current favourite products for covering spot prone skin include:

Vichy Dermablend's Corrective Foundation £15.50
I talk about this foundation a lot over at my blog because to date it is the best foundation I have ever used!! It is a full coverage foundation that is designed for disguising problem skin. Although it is a full coverage foundation it isn't thick and it doesn't look heavy once applied to this skin. In fact, since I've been using it, I've received lots of compliments about how good my skin looks and who doesn't appreciate the odd compliment from time to time?

Benefit Boi-ing Concealer £16.50
This is a concealer that some people love and some hate but I'm all about the love, although I know Beauty Bird isn't a huge fan! Boi-ing is a very creamy concealer that gives great coverage for those angry areas. I find it to be build-able and perfect for covering scars as well as fresh spots!

E.L.F Complete Coverage Concealer £3.50
Boi-ing comes complete with a hefty price tag, so if you're looking for something a little more affordable the E.L.F Complete Coverage Concealer is a bargain! I love this concealer palette for a number of reasons, the first is that it only costs £3.50, the second is that the concealer does offer build-able, medium coverage and the third is the variety of shades. This concealer comes with four shades, two with pink undertones and two with yellow. It is really important when disguising blemishes to use yellow toned concealers, as these take away redness. If you use a pink toned concealer it will draw light to the problem area and therefore draw attention to it. Pink tones are great for lightening dark circles under the eyes.

Now I realise that a mineral or powder foundation is sorely missing from this list. I've tried lots of powder and mineral foundations but never found one that I am completely happy with. It's really important to use power to set your foundation and concealer to help it stay in place longer. If anyone has any recommendations for great mineral foundations please put you answers on a postcard and post them to Never too Broke for Beauty, Bloggers Land, Bloggerssphere!

I hope you've enjoyed my guest post and thanks to Beauty Bird for letting me have my own little ramble on her part of the Internet!


Thank you very much to Katy for this fab post, which covers a topic close to my heart! Make sure you check out her blog Never Too Broke for Beauty (click to view) for her brilliant and honest beauty reviews!

Makeup Health Check - Time To Throw Away?

After reading a few posts recently on makeup expiration dates, including one by the brilliant Meg at Lips so Facto, it got me thinking and I decided that my makeup stash needed a bit of a sort out! Plus it's something I've never thought about particularly until recently, so I thought it would be a great topic to share!

There doesn't seem to be any official guidelines about when you should throw away makeup, but there a lot of recommended time periods online, all of which vary slightly. A lot of products these days state on the packaging how long the product will last for once it's been opened but do you always take notice of this? I know I don't!

After a quick Google, here's roughly how long you can expect makeup to last:

Liquid foundations / concealers - up to 1 year
Powders - foundation / blush / bronzer / eyeshadow - up to 2 years
Creams - blush / eyeshadow - up to 1 year
Liquid eyeliner - up to 3 months
Pencil eyeliner / lipliner - up to 2 years
Lipstick / lipgloss - up to 2 years
Mascara - up to 6 months
Nail varnish - up to 2 years

So here's what I decided to throw away:

Some of these are YEARS and YEARS old, so old that I can't really remember buying them. Many of these I haven't used for ages anyway, but I've just kept them because, you know, what IF I need it... (Anyone else do this?!)

Of course you can use makeup past the recommended time period, I know I have, but it may not work as effectively and at worst, could be carrying bacteria that will give you some sort of infection.  I think you just have to be sensible - if it smells funny, looks different or unusual or has changed in texture then definitely throw it away! 

Have you health checked your makeup recently?

Review: Dr Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Hand & Nail Cream

I was lucky enough recently to win this organic hand cream in a giveaway by Sarah from Sugarpuffish, who blogs about natural and free from beauty products. I am so glad because otherwise I wouldn't have discovered this fabulous product! I didn't think anything would top my beloved Soap and Glory Hand Food but amazingly, this has.

I'd never actually heard of the brand Dr Organic before this, but a quick Google and I found that the brand is multi award winning and can be purchased from Holland and Barrett. Dr Organic say that they "utilise only the finest natural and organic raw materials wherever possible". Their products do not contain mineral oils, animal ingredients, GM ingredients or chemicals such as parabens, SLS or artifical fragrances. Dr Organic have quite a range of products based around specific ingredients, including Moroccan Argan Oil, Dead Sea Mineral and the main ingredient of this hand cream, Virgin Coconut Oil.

Dr Organic describe this hand cream as "a fast absorbing, deeply hydrating and nutritious hand and nail treatment". It is also meant to be anti-aging. One look at the ingredients and you can tell how good it is going to be for hands and nails - as well as coconut oil, it contains Vitamins C and E, cocoa butter and aloe vera leaf juice, amongst others.

I absolutely love the smell, it's rich but not overpowering and quite luxurious really! On first impressions it did feel a little oily when applying, but wow, Dr Organic aren't exaggerating when they say this is fast drying. Within 10 seconds it's basically fully absorbed into the skin and makes your skin feel soft and hydrated, with no oiliness left behind. 

I've been using this every night for the past few weeks before I go to bed and my hands feel and look in great condition. Plus there's the added bonus of this product - it's good for your nails too! There's no claim from Dr Organic of what this will actually do for your nails, but it's made such a difference to mine. They look healthier, I've experienced a lot less peeling and they've grown stronger. This is the first time in ages I've actually not cut them short!

The Verdict
Can you tell that I love this?!! I can't recommend it enough. It's a great treatment for your hands and nails, plus you can apply it when you're in a rush and on the go, not having to worry about waiting ages for it to absorb. Plus it's £5.99, which is a pretty good price! I'll definitely purchase this myself when it runs out.

I'm Impressed With... Primark Hairbrushes!

I mentioned last month that I bought two Primark hairbrushes in my Saturday's Shopping Haul post and I'm so glad that I did, I think they are worthy of their own blog post!

The two brushes I bought were a XL Thermal Brush for £2.00 and a De-tangler Brush for £1.50. Bargains huh?

Left: XL Thermal Brush / Right: De-tangler Brush

First of all, I absolutely love the XL Thermal Brush because it makes such a difference when drying my hair compared to my current brush, which is less than half the size. I find it much quicker to dry, as you can pick up larger pieces of hair on the brush. It also adds soooo much more volume to my shoulder length hair and helps my layers sit curled inward perfectly. So simple yet so effective! 

The De-tangler Brush looks just like the Tangle Teezer - which I'm sure isn't a coincidence! I've never used a Tangle Teezer, so I can't compare the two on their effectiveness, but for £1.50 this Primark lookalike is pretty darn good! As you can see in the photos below, the teeth are all different lengths, which I'm guessing is the reason why it de-tangles my hair with ease. I have to say, it feels weird to hold at first when you're used to holding a brush with a handle, but you do get used to it. 

As per the title of this post, I'm so impressed with these brushes considering the price! Have you tried any of Primark's hairbrush range?

Review: Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets

I haven't used blotting sheets for a long time - although I remember using some from Superdrug, which released a powder onto your face. I really wasn't keen on these; the finish wasn't smooth and could look uneven. So when I saw this new powder free release from Kleenex posted about by Vicki from Let's Talk Beauty I knew I had to try them! I always get a bit oily and shiny around my T-zone - not the best look! 

The little cardboard pack contains 50 sheets, retailing at £2.99. The pack states;

"Dab away excess oil and keep your make-up intact."

Inside the pack is a little sticker, which will pick up a sheet for you every time you open the pack. I think this is a really nice touch and means you don't have to handle the sheets much before using them. The sheets are purple with a plain shiny side, which is to use on your face and a pretty matt patterned side, which is just for handling really and maybe blotting with style?

So do these work? Yes they really do - and you can see them working! Press the sheet against a shiny part of your face and the colour will change to a darker purple when it's absorbed any oil. Plus you can see it on your face too - no shine, no oil, your skin feels fresher and smoother and makeup has stayed perfectly intact, just as promised!

The Verdict
This is a great product, which does exactly what it says on the pack! I think the price is pretty good too - even Boots own blotting sheets are more expensive at £3.56. I will definitely be re-purchasing! I would much rather use this than keep applying face powder to combat shine and oil.

Do you use blotting sheets? Have you tried these by Kleenex?

NOTD: With Sparkle On The Top

Today's NOTD features one of my favourite nail varnishes - Barry M Peach Melba. It's a colour I come back to again and again, especially in summer. Feeling inspired by Gem, who does some lovely NOTDs on her blog Gem Seren, I decided to make it a bit more interesting and added glitter tips in a gradient style. For this I used Color Club Gingerbread from the Glitter Vixen Collection*, which is mainly gold but has some green and pink glitter thrown in for good measure.

I applied two coats of Peach Melba first and then a layer of Gingerbread roughly half way down the nail, followed by another layer a quarter of the way down the nail to achieve the gradient effect. I think this would look even better on longer nails (I just prefer mine short).

Barry M Peach Melba costs £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug. Color Club is an American brand, but a quick Google comes up with a few UK sites that sell the varnishes individually for £3.00.

What nail varnish do you always go back to?

New Makeup Bag Staple: Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

After seeing Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer raved about in many a blog post and then my friend saying how good it was, I thought I must try this!

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer retails at £4.19 and is available in four shades; Fair, Light, Medium and Deep. I am uber pale and after swatching found that Fair best suited my skin tone. 

The blurb:

"The ultimate wear concealer promises to conceal flaws, imperfections and blemishes again, for up to 16 hours.  This skin perfecting, oil free product is also transfer proof and water resistant for full and long lasting coverage. It provides beautiful, blemish-free skin for every waking hour."  

I am so, so impressed with this concealer! The formula is quite thick but still creamy, which means a little goes a very long way and so this tube will last absolutely ages. The coverage is also fantastic - it is amazing on dark circles (comparison pics below) and imperfections. I've used it quite sparingly on my face as it contains talc, which can clog pores, but so far it hasn't caused me to break out and hasn't made existing spots any worse. I usually use my Witch Anti-Blemish Liquid Concealer on spots anyway. I wouldn't say it lasts 16 hours, but it does last very well through an 8 hour working day and doesn't go cakey.

 Left: Without concealer / Right: With concealer

The negatives of this product for me are that the writing on the tube wears off really quickly (as you can see from the earlier photo), and that with the stick applicator you don't always get the same amount of product on the stick each time you use it. There are also only four shades to choose from, though this is actually better than some concealers out there!

The Verdict
I absolutely LOVE it! I would even go as far as saying I prefer it to my Clinique Airbrush Concealer. It is now a staple in my makeup bag, I couldn't be without it! I recently included this in My Current Top 5 Makeup Products Under £5.00 post. I would recommend spending some of your pounds and pennies to give this a try. Although the shade range isn't great, hopefully there's one to suit you.
