Beauty Blogger Tag

1. Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
My hair is naturally straight, although i do love how my hair looks when i have it curled :)

2. What’s your natural hair color?
My hair is naturally a light blonde, but as i have gotten older it is more of a light brown.
3. Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
I go to a salon to have my hair done. I did try doing it myself a real light blonde myself, but it didn't turn
out very well!

4. Do you wear the same style every day or do you change it?
I like to change my style, i think its good to wear something different that you wouldn't usually wear and also the same with make up, i like to try new things.
5. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?

I like to do mine all year round. I love bright colours.

It used to take me ages to do my make up, but it only takes me about 10 to 15 minutes now to put it on.
9. What do you do first, face or eyes?76
I start off first with my face. I start off by putting on foundation, powder then blusher. I then move on to my eyes. I put eyeshadow on first, then eyeliner and last of all mascara.
10. Do you “collect” makeup or just buy what you need when you need it?
I usually only buy make up when i need it, else it just gets wasted.
11. How often do you wear false eye lashes?
I tried wearing them a few times, but didn't get on with them. I prefer to just put mascara on my eye lashes.
12. Do you do a full face of makeup every day?
I usually do a full face of make up everyday. Sometimes i may just put some powder on instead of foundation and sometimes i will a day where i don't wear any if i am at home. But i feel so much better when i have got make up on.
13. Do you wear makeup when you are home alone, or with family?

I usually decide when i am getting dressed! If i did plan the night before i would most likely change my mind in the morning!

I do have quite a few bags, but i don't really change them that often. I usually wear the same bag for quite a while.
18. What time do you get up and go to sleep?

Beauty: The Body Shop - Warming Mineral Mask

Warming Mineral Mask

I love love love this product! I really do!

I have been using this for a while now and i just have to share it with you :)

Product Description

"This cleansing mask for all skin types warms on contact with wet skin. It leaves skin clean and revitalised."
Weekly treatment

Full Ingredients

PEG-8 (Humectant), Zeolite (Warming Agent), Glycerin (Humectant), Kaolin (Absorbent), Methyl Gluceth-20 (Viscosity Modifier), Zinc Oxide (Sunscreen), PEG-220 (Binder/Humectant/Solvent), Algae (Seaweed Extract) (Natural Additive), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Curcuma zedoaria (Zedoary Oil) (Skin Conditioning Agent), Zingiber officinale (Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Oil) (Natural Additive), Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Cinnamon Oil) (Fragrance), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Eugenol (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient), Benzyl Benzoate (Solvent), Citral (Fragrance Ingredient), Coumarin (Fragrance Ingredient), Cinnamyl Alcohol (Fragrance Ingredient).

How I use the Mineral Warming Mask

To use this product, i wet my skin and then apply a generous amount. 
I can instantly feel the warming sensation of this mask. It does actually feel really nice :)
I use this twice a week before i go to bed. I usually take off my eye make up first and then cleanse my skin and rinse and then apply the Mineral Warming Mask. You leave the mask on for 5 minutes then rinse off. After this i tone my skin and apply a serum and then moisturiser.

You do however have to put pressure on the tube to get the product to come out after you have been using it a while as i sometimes have trouble getting it out. But a little does go a long way and has lasted me a very long time.

(A photo of me with the Face Mask on!!)

My Verdict

I always find it hard to find a good face mask as a lot of ones that i have bought in the past say that they do this and that and never work!
This one really does work and since using it, my skin has become a lot softer and hydrated and also a lot more spot-free!
I feel this product is great at helping to get rid of breakouts. When i start to have a breakout i use this on my skin and i can already see an improvement the following morning.

I highly recommend this product and at £10.00 for 100ml it is a great buy, especially because it works.

This definitely has to be one of best purchases and i will definitely continue to buy this.
I also highly recommend checking out the rest of The Body Shop products as i love their cleansers, toners, serums and moisturisers. I love just about everything from The Body Shop :)

I also love their products because they are against animal testing, which i feel strongly about. Their products are also 100% Vegetarian. 

You can buy this product from HERE.

Thank you for reading and please let me know in the comment section below what your favourite Body Shop products are :)

Tagged: The Good and Bad Beauty Blogger Tag

This Tag was created by Saffron Lallam from Saffy Style Blog

What I'm good at

  • Face Makeup - I feel that i have improved loads on applying make up since i first started wearing it when i was a lot younger. I love applying make up to my face and i always feel much better when wearing it. I think i am good at applying foundation in a way that makes it look natural but whilst covering blemishes. 
  • Lips - I love wearing lip stick, i never used be very good at putting it on when i first started wearing it, but now i love putting it on. I recently bought a lovely one by Revlon in Cappuccino. 
  • Eyes - I feel i am good when it comes to eye make up, i usually put just a light pink or brown eye-shadow on my eyes and then put some eyeliner on and then mascara.
  • Skincare - I have an obsession over skin care products and have to take my make up off every night before bed. I am quite good when it comes to this as i could never leave my make up on over night.
  • Nails - I love applying nail varnish. I recently bought this nail varnish from Barry M which changes colour when you apply a top coat :) its amazing. I am a lot better at applying nail varnish now than i used to be! It used to get very messy!
  • Body - I always exfoliate my skin everyday and love using natural products to shower myself with. I love to take good care of my body and moisturise. It is very important to look after your skin.
  • Lifestyle - I feel i am getting better at looking after myself more as i have had to change my diet recently and cut out many different foods. But by doing this i have started to eat healthier and eat more veg and also drinking a lot more herbal and fruit teas.

  • Things I'm bad at

    • Face Makeup - I think i have got to a stage now where i am confident in doing my face make up and applying it how i want it.
    • Lips - I could do with making sure i don't let my lips get dry, as  i sometimes forget to put any lip balm on!
    • Eyes - The one thing i wish i was a lot better with is applying eyeliner! I always end up having one side different to the other!
    • Skincare - The only thing i sometimes do which is naughty is that although i take my make up off every night i sometimes don't wash my face before or after cleansing.
    • Nails - I sometimes get a little messy when applying a top coat to my nails after putting nail varnish on. Nail varnish i am fine with, but the top coat seems to go everywhere!
    • Body - I used to try and exercise quite a bit but i haven't done as much recently as i would like, so i am definitely going to work on this!
    • Lifestyle - I am still quite terrible for having a lot of sugar! I  have tried to cut down how much i put in my porridge in the mornings. I have stopped putting it in my fruit teas which is a great improvement!

Fashion: Jewellery Haul - Peacocks, New Look, Claire's Accessories

Jewellery Haul

As you know i love my bargains and when i was in Peacocks, New Look and Claire's Accessories the other day i found some very good bargains :)

This gorgeous flower necklace was £3.50 in the sale from Peacocks. I love the colour of the flowers.

This one above was in the sale for £3.50 from New Look.

This ring is so shiny :) It really caught my eye and is so pretty. This was £3.50 from Peacocks.

I love this necklace above from Peacocks, especially the feathers :) This was £3.00 in the sale.

This has to be my fave piece of jewellery that i purchased :) I love owls and this so cute.
This was £2.50 in the sale.

I usually find that you can always get some really great pieces of Jewellery from these three shops, especially when they have a sale on.

Beauty: Dove Purely Pampering Coconut and Jasmine Lotion

Dove - Purely Pampering Nourishing Lotion

I am a huge fan of this Nourishing Lotion by Dove :)
It does exactly what it says on the bottle and it smells amazing.

"Dove Purely Pampering lotion with coconut milk deeply nourishes your skin leaving it soother. Its fragrance with jasmine petals leaves you feeling relaxed."

It isn't greasy at all and soaks in to your skin really quickly. I have noticed a huge improvement in my skin, I mainly use it on my legs because they sometimes get very dry.

I love the fact that it has coconut milk in it and also Jasmine petals... did i mention that it smells amazing!

I highly recommend getting this if you are looking to get a body lotion.
I bought this one from Superdrug and it costs £1.98 for 250ml.

I thought this was a right good bargain as a lot of lotions and moisturisers for your body sometimes cost a fortune and then they don't work. 
But i am really pleased with this one and will definitely go get more when i run out.

Please let me know which body lotions/moisturisers you love :)

Beauty: Blistex Lip Massage

Blistex Lip Massage

""Adds gorgeous shimmer and a tint of rosy glow. Boost your lips' natural fullness while Vitamin E, Silk Extracts and Grape Seed Oil work their softening magic.

"Its Hyaluronic Filling Spheres boost your lips' natural fullness so that they look healthy, full and fabulous."

Carrying on from my last blog post with the Carmex Lip Balm, i found this one by Blistex. My lips always seem to get so dry so i have been on the hunt for some good lip balms!

The one by Carmex gets a gold star from me and so does this one.

As soon as you apply this to your lips they feel moisturised. This really does do what is says it does. My lips felt much softer too after using this. 

I also love the fact that it has got SPF 15 in in, which is a bonus.

It gives a really nice shimmer on the lips :)

The Carmex and Blistex lip balms have to be two of my fave ones. 

I got mine from Superdrug and it costs £2.49 for 3.7G.

Beauty: Revlon - Charlie Enchant Body Spray

Revlon - Charlie Enchant Body Spray

I remember when i was at school and everyone was buying all the different types of Charlie body sprays!
I always used to have about 2 or 3 different ones in my school bag!

When i was in Superdrug the other day I walked past the deodorant/body spray area and saw that they had all my old favourites.

This one caught my eye though as i have never tried this one before.
 I love the bottle it comes in (so pretty.)

So i decided to buy it and give it a try.... 
It smells amazing!

This has to be my favourite one out of the Charlie body sprays.

I also keep it in my bag so i can freshen up when i am out or gigging.

I am definitely going to go back to Superdrug and check out the other Charlie body sprays by Revlon.

Sometimes they have some great offers on these body sprays in Superdrug.

This one cost me £1.69

Beauty: Carmex Pomegranate Moisturising Lip Balm

Carmex Pomegranate Moisturising Lip Balm

I am really loving the Carmex Lip Balm in Pomegranate flavour.

I am a huge fan of this brand, i always carry one of their lip balms with me in my bag.

The packaging in which this product comes in is very eye catching. 

Another reason why i love these lip balms is because they have SPF 15 in them.

They are super moisturising and my lips always feel so much better.
I also put it on before i get in bed as my lips look and feel loads better in the morning.

The bottom twists so you can easily apply the lip balm and then it twists back down to avoid the product getting squashed when you put the lid back on.

 It smells amazing and as soon as you apply it you can really feel it doing its job.

I highly recommend this Lip balm.

I bought this from Superdrug and it cost me £3.25
