Beauty on Trial

I have so many beauty products on the go that sometimes it's impossible to blog about them all, especially when I'm only posting 1-2 times a week. To right this wrong, I've put together a selection of 6 products I've been trying, testing and trialling over recent months but haven't talked about yet, all into one post. After all sharing is caring!

5 Skincare Saviours for Dull, Tired Skin

Being a poor sleeper, stuck in an office for 8 hours a day with a tendency to reach for the biscuit and cake tins far too often, my skin often looks dull and tired. Although I know it's easy to cheat radiance with the amount of brightening, highlighting makeup products around these days, I like to get more of a natural looking glow with the help of a few skincare saviours. After all, I'm a firm believer that if your skin looks good, then your makeup looks better!

Who's Behind the Blogger?

I think it's fair to say that for many blogs, if not all blogs, there isn't just the blogger that's behind it but someone else too. It's someone you might never see and someone you might never even hear about, but they are always there. It's the person in your life who gives you moral blog support; the one you tell all your blog related news to; maybe the one that takes your OOTD or FOTD photos; or the one that puts up with your increasing makeup/skincare/nail varnish collection as it takes over the bedroom/bathroom/spare room.

Review and Swatches: La Roche-Posay Effaclar BB Blur in Fair/Light

Some of my favourite skincare products are from La Roche-Posay, such as the famous Effaclar Duo+ and Serozinc. They have recently released their first coverage product, a skincare/makeup hybrid called the Effaclar BB Blur. I do not own one single tinted moisturiser, BB or CC cream of any sort; having less than perfect skin prone to breakouts and consequent scarring means I reach for high coverage bases like a comfort blanket. However after having read lots of rave reviews and seen some before and after photos of the Effaclar BB Blur, I thought maybe this could be the one to convert me.

A Lazy Girl's Body Moisturising Picks

Moisturising my face... twice daily without fail. Lips... I slather on balm like it's going out of fashion. Hands too, I've got a hand cream stashed in every place I might need one. But when it comes to the rest of my body, I'm seriously lazy and neglectful. I have a box of unopened body lotions and butters that I just can't seem to get in the habit of using. My skin doesn't feel dry to the touch, but I'm sure it would appreciate a good dose of moisture. So to get at least some kind of hydration to my skin, I have a handful of cheat products that make me feel like I'm making a lil bit of effort. These are a lazy girl's body moisturising picks.
