June Beauty Favourites

Hello Lovelies!
I hope you are all having a brilliant weekend! Today I'm writing about my June Beauty favourites, it's hard to believe we're in July already! It's my boyfriends birthday on Tuesday so I'm so excited to give him his birthday present. First year in a long time that I've actually been properly organised!

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
Since we are (slowly) getting into the Summer months I have been breaking out the lighter foundations. I have been such a massive fan of this for a while now and it's always in my makeup bag incase I fancy a lighter coverage. There has been such hype about this foundation over the beauty community and very rightly so I think! It is a very light-weight foundation but it still gives you decent coverage without looking cakey! It leaves a gorgeous glow to the face which everyone seems to be craving lately. I would honestly say this is one of my all time favourite foundations! I actually have done a review on it here if you would like to read abit more about it!

Garnier Summer Body
As you all know I am a massive tan-aholic and I am majorly obsessed with the Cocoa Brown tan. Recently I have been adding this Garnier gradual tanner to my routine to prolong my tan. I apply this just using my normal tanning mitt (avoiding dodgy orange hands!) every evening after I've tanned. It helps to maintain my tan that I have and also keeps my skin lovely and moisturised!

Models Own Hedonist
Again due to the Summer months I have been breaking out the Summer nail polishes. I was actually thinking of doing a Summer Nail Polish Picks post so if you would like to see that please let me know! I have been wearing Hedonist on my toes constantly this past month. It is the brightest of bright nail polishes and completely neon. It does dry to a matte finish but I just pop a bit of my Seche Vite over the top to make it glossy and long lasting. I don't think I would be brave enough to wear it on my fingernails but for the toes for the Summer it's perfect!

L'oreal Super Liner
Recently I have been getting back into wearing liquid liner on my upper lash line with a small flick. Since I have hooded eyes I can't get away with wearing a major flick because you literally would not be able to see it but for a bit of definition I have been liking just a thin line with a tiny flick. I have been a fan of the L'oreal liquid liners for quite a while now and while it's very difficult to get the original Carbon Gloss one I have been loving this recently. It's easy to apply, it stays on and it's easy to remove! What more could a girl ask for?

No.7 BB Lips - Blush Coral
I picked this up during the month as I had a No.7 voucher burning a hole in my pocket and I was so intrigued about these as they look quite similar to the Clarins Instant Light Perfector lip glosses. This has literally been in my handbag all month, I've used it so much that the writing has begun to come off the front (anyone else hate when that happens?) I am not normally a massive fan of lip glosses but I find this to be the perfect mix between a lipgloss and a lip balm  It's not sticky at all, still leaves a gorgeous gloss to your lips with a hit of colour. Next time I have a voucher I'll definitely be picking up another colour!

Bioderma Hydrabio Masque
I'm sure you all know at this stage if you follow me on Twitter about my horrible skin malfunction during the month. I don't even know how to describe it! My whole face was one big dry, flakey mess (attractive!) I was literally using everything I could to try and inject some moisture back into my skin. I started using this every couple of nights, leaving it on for about ten minutes and then taking off the excess with a cotton pad. I found it helped improve my skin along with my Hydro Care Serum that I blogged about here. Thank god my skin is now back to normal but I am continuing to use this at least once a week to make sure I get no repeats of what happened!

Dainty Doll Paper Roses
Possibly one of the cheapest blushes I own but it has won a place in my heart quite quickly is this cream blusher from Dainty Doll. I picked this up awhile ago along with a lipstick but the blusher has definitely become my favourite out of the two. It's such a gorgeous baby pink and it's so nice and subtle on the cheeks, perfect for an everyday look. I am amazed by the quality of it too, it's so amazingly pigmented you literally need the tiniest amount and it looks brilliant. I use my Real Techniques Stippling Brush with it and I am just in love with that combination (I probably should have included the brush too as it has been a firm favourite over the past month too!)

So those are my favourites for the month of June. Have you tried any of these products? What are your beauty favourites at the moment?

Hydro Care Serum

Hello Lovelies!

You all know at this stage if you have read my blog for any length of time that I love my skin care. I may even stretch to say that I prefer taking my makeup off than to putting it on sometimes. But once I find something I like I stick to it. I know a lot of people like to try out different products and chop and change their skincare regularly, but I really don't do that. To be completely honest I am slightly afraid of trying new skincare incase it doesn't have the desired effect and causes something unpleasant to appear on my face! I have normal/combination skin which is prone to the odd (frequent) breakout, but lately my skin has been becoming a lot dryer (maybe it's the warmer weather?) and I've noticed some serious dry patches appearing which I do not like one bit! 

So you can imagine my delight when I was given the opportunity to test out HydroCare's Serum. Before this I had never used a serum in my skincare routine but I was always intrigued. When I recieved this in the post I honestly say my skin was at the worst it's been in a long while. I had dry flaky patches on my cheeks (where I never normally get dry skin) and we won't even go into detail about what was going on on my chin! So I was instantly putting this to the test! It says on the website that this serum makes the skin feel firm and hydrated, and I was looking for hydration and lots of it! I started to use this every second night just after my toner and before my moisturiser and I was using it in conjunction with my Bioderma Hydrabio Masque. 

To cut a long (dry) story short, my skin cleared up in a week. I was amazed at the difference it made! The dryness has gone completely and my skin is back to normal again thank heavens! They also say that this can be used as a primer and I have tried it this way and found it quite similar to my Nivea Express Hydration primer (which I was also layering on in the mornings..I needed all the hydration I could get!) in the length of time it helped my makeup last. The only thing I don't like about this product is the smell. It's really really sweet and normally I hate putting overly fragranced products on my face but I was desperate and it worked so all is well! I am so grateful for this product and I will continue to use it because I certainly do not want any repeats of what happened! 

The HydroCare Serum is available to purchase online here. Please let me know if you have any other products you use when your skin needs that little bit of moisture back!

Top 3 Favourite Bronzers

Hello Lovelies!

I am so excited because last night I reached 600 GFC followers! Thank you all so much, I was in the middle of Tesco and I logged on and when I seen that I had hit 600 I literally squealed with boyfriend didn't know what to think! 

Today I wanted to share my favourite bronzers with you. Up until last year I was never really a bronzer girl and then I dived in head first into the bronzer world and have been obsessed ever since. So I decided to show you my top three favourite bronzers. These are the three that I reach for the most and since it's getting into Summertime I have been reaching for them a lot more. I have included two high-end and one "drugstore" just for some variety. If you have any other recommendations please let me know what I should try! 

Essence Sun Club Bronzer 
This is one of the cheapest bronzers that I own, but honestly I really do love it. I bought this in Pennys/Primark back in February time for next to nothing and it has become one of my bargain finds of the year! I'm not sure if this was limited edition for the Summer time but I still see them on my local Essence stands so hopefully you will be able to still get your hands on one. I went for the blonde version, and yes even though I'm not blonde I am extremely pale so I thought it would be safer to go for this one and that way I have the option to build up the colour if needed. It is a very warm toned bronzer, it's also matte so you can also contour with it if you like! Randomly enough it smells divine! 

NARS Laguna
This is without a doubt my holy grail bronzer. I am currently on my second one and a week does not go by that I don't pick this up! It is the perfect golden brown bronzer, and I think it would look lovely on pale to medium skin tones. If you are slightly darker maybe NARS Casino would be the one for you. Laguna does contain very subtle shimmer so you would get away with using it for contour if you wanted but I usually just use it to add some warmth to my face (being as white as I am I need all the help I can get!) As with all NARS products it is amazing quality, really pigmented and really long lasting on the skin. It is on the pricier side but in my opinion completely worth it!

Soleil Tan De Chanel
Finally one of the more recent additions to my bronzing family is the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel. This is a completely unique product in my makeup collection. It is basically a cream bronzer that is marketed as a bronzing base. I have used this underneath my makeup before for a night out and I did love the effect it gave. I wore a lighter coverage foundation on top and it made me look that I had a nice natural tan (Wishful thinking in Ireland!) But mostly I just use this like I would any other bronzer. I adore using my Real Techniques Expert Face brush with it, I just think that is a match made in heaven! Some days I do find this a bit too orange toned for my skin but then other days I love the way it looks. I have seen that Bourjois have released something similar and I am very interested to try that one out to see if it may be a cheaper alternative! 

Have you tried any of these bronzers? If so what did you think of them? What bronzers would you recommend?

The Sunday Night Manicure

Hello lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good weekend! I have been crippled with a new wisdom tooth coming up the past few days so my weekend has consisted of ice-packs, painkillers and blogging! Every week on a Sunday I have my little Sunday evening ritual which I actually blogged about here and every week I always have to paint my nails in preparation for the following week. I always feel so much better with freshly painted nails. 

Firstly I clean my nails to make sure that all the old nail polish is fully gone. I normally use my Sally Hansen nail polish remover or my Bourjois 1 Second Remover but I have run out of both of these so that is why they are not pictured! I then use my cheap as chips Essence buffer to make sure my nails are nice and smooth and the edges are nice and square. If needed I'll trim my nails because lately I've been having my nails a lot shorter than normal. While working in an office long nails are really not your friend! Next I use my ELF Cuticle Pusher to make sure my cuticles are all pushed back and looking neat, after applying some of my Ciate Cuticle Oil I'm ready to apply my colour. I've been loving the  Rimmel Salon Pro line lately and one colour that has stood out to me the most and that I have been wearing a lot the past few weeks has been Hip Hop. It's a gorgeous red/orange shade that looks really nice with a tan. Then I top it all off with a layer of Seche Vite which I think makes any nail polish look amazing and last for ages! 

After all that I feel much more prepared for my week, which does seem a bit sad but it is the little things in life! Have you any recommendations for colours you think I'd like? If so please leave your suggestions below!

Will it? Wont' it?

Hello Lovelies!

I'm sure over the past few months you have heard all about the speculation about Google Friend Connect and Google Reader and I for one think it is really sad news if it does go ahead. Google haven't confirmed anything about GFC going but if you believe the rumours it is meant to be going any day now! I don't know about you but I love seeing a new little face pop up on the sidebar and I can just click onto it and learn more about that person. I'm really going to miss seeing all your lovely faces on the side of my blog and I would love it if you stuck around with me and my blog! I just thought I would share some of my other social media links incase you wanted to follow me on those!

Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara

Hello Lovelies!

I want to introduce you to the latest mascara that has captured my heart! It was actually my mum that first introduced me to this mascara (I say introduce, I actually mean she bought it and I stole it to try it out!) before I bought my own. My mum loves her mascara. She must have tried nearly every brand under the sun, so when she told me that this was good I knew that was very high praise indeed. So of course I had to investigate further, and let me tell you this mascara is definitely a new favourite! 

I actually found the formula quite unusual, it's definitely not your traditional "wet" mascara. To be honest the first time I tried it I thought that it was a bad one and that it had dried up, but no apparently that is just the way it is and I have to say I love it! It is the blackest black and literally one coat is all you need!  The wand is a little triangular in shape which is perfect for getting into the very little lashes in the corners of your eyes and for bottom lashes too! As you can see it adds massive length to my lashes and it really holds the curl all day. The only thing I'd say about it is that towards the end of the day I did notice some flaking under my eyes but nothing too major! 

It is definitely not the cheapest option at €27 (ouchy) but if you want a splurge I think it's definitely worth it! Available from Lancome counters and online here

Beauty Wishlist | June 2013

Hello Lovelies! 

I hope you are all having a brilliant weekend, I spent the day yesterday just relaxing with my boyfriend and I think today that me and my mum are going doing some shopping! So what perfect timing for me to write up another wishlist of the items I am currently lusting over! 

1. Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder
Admittedly I had never heard of Kevyn Aucoin up until recent months when the massive hype started to spread across the beauty community, and you know me I'm never one to pass up on an over-hyped product! I am obsessed with highlighters (I even had one on my last wishlist!) and I will not rest until I achieve the Millie Mackintosh glow that everyone seems to lust after so much! 

2. Real Techniques Limited Edition Brushes
I am a massive fan of the Real Techniques brushes, I wouldn't be able to go a day without using one at the moment! So imagine my excitement when I heard they were releasing a limited edition set that would be on sale for one year! They are duo fibre brushes and I just need them in my life. Need. 

3. MAC Let's Skate Paintpot
When I first seen Fleur de Force using this I thought to myself, that sounds right up my street and I mentally added it to my shopping list for London. But whatever happened when I was in MAC in Selfridges, I swatched it, loved it but forgot to buy it! Next time I'm at MAC it will be the first thing I make a bee-line for! Someone please tell me it's not limited edition! 

4. Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanner for Face 
I am a big fan of fake tan. You all know this, but something I have yet to try is a facial tanner. Admittedly I have done the whole applying body tan to my face (shhhh...slap on wrist I know!) but I have never dipped a toe into the facial tanning world. I have heard so many good things about the Clarins one that I think it might be the way forward! 

5. Bourjois Cream Blushes
I have been so excited to get my hands on these for weeks. As soon as I heard that they were being released I knew I had to have them! I haven't been able to get my hands on them in my local Boots yet and again I did mean to pick them up in London but I forgot! (this is what happens when I don't write things down!) I have my eye on numbers 01 and 02 as I'm going through a peachy/coral phase at the moment and I think they would be perfect! 

6. YSL Babydoll Mascara
When I was buying my new YSL Touche Eclat foundation the sales assistant applied the Babydoll mascara on my lashes. Even though she only applied two layers at most the effect was amazing and I fell in love. Damn you YSL! I've read so many good reviews since that I really do think this may be my next "high-end" make up purchase...roll on payday! 

So those are the products I am currently lusting over! Have you tried any of these products? If you have reviews please link them below as I would love to hear your thoughts!

Hello Lovelies!

Today I heard some exciting news for all us Irish girls, Boots are now offering online shopping to Ireland! If like me you don't live near a city you might have been limited to certain brands before,  but now they are all online! I went on as soon as I spotted the news on Make-Up Monster's blog this morning and I was in heaven! Some of the brands that they have on there at the moment are Bourjois, Chanel, Clarins, Bumble & Bumble, Dior, Estee Lauder, Essie, Maybelline, Model's Own, Nails Inc, Rimmel and Urban Decay.

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation

Hello Lovelies!

I'm not normally one for splashing out on foundation, but when I was in London recently I decided to treat myself and buy something that I have been lusting after since its release last year. As you can see from the pictures above it is the gorgeous Touche Eclat Foundation. I am such a massive fan of the highlighter pen and it is something that I always seem to have in my makeup collection. So when I heard that there was a foundation to be released I knew I had to have it!

The main reason I don't normally get higher-end foundations is because I'm so afraid of being matched to the wrong shade and having spent all that money on something that I can't use. Plus I tend to get a bit intimidated by the sales girls and get really awkward when they try to sell me something I know is not right. So one of the evenings that I was in London last week I was in House of Fraser with my mum just having a browse. I was in the YSL section and it was so quiet that I thought now is my chance, so I went up to the girl ( who was so so nice and helpful) and got myself matched and made my purchase and haven't looked back since!

First of all the packaging of the foundation is absolutely stunning. Once again YSL did not disappoint. It comes packaged in a gorgeous glass bottle with a gold top on it with the YSL logo on top. It is a very luxurious feeling product and would look amazing on a dressing table! The main point of this foundation is to direct light to the correct areas of the face according to YSL as opposed to be a heavy coverage foundation. Although if you know and have used the Touche Eclat pen you would know not to expect this to be a heavy coverage foundation! It is such a nice light feeling foundation but even though it is light, it still evens out your skin tone and adds a lovely "glow" to your skin. I did find that it wasn't the longest wearing foundation but when I paired it with a primer and topped up slightly throughout the day I got it to last a good 8 hours on me. I don't think it would work all that well with oilier skin types as I feel it would just slide off your face. My favourite way of applying this is either with my beloved Real Techniques Buffing Brush or with my fingers. Both of these methods leaves a gorgeous natural look.

I really would recommend you get a sample of this foundation if you are around a YSL counter. It comes in an impressive 22 shades is available to buy from counters or online here for £28.

Summer Day Make-Up Essentials

Hello Lovelies!

As the weather is getting warmer and the tans are becoming natural my makeup bag contents change significantly. I like so many other crave that light dewy radiant look but I fully accept the fact that I will not be getting it without a little/lot help! So I've decided to show you my go-to items for my everyday Summer look. Now during the Summer I don't like the feeling of having too many products on my face which is why there are quite a few liquid/creamy products included in this. I find they add to the dewy look and make everything look that little bit more natural!

Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
This is my go to foundation recently, I find that it is perfect for everyday wear. It is lovely and light so it doesn't look like you've got a lot of foundation on but it still evens out your skin-tone, provides you with decent enough coverage and leaves your skin looking gorgeous and glowy! Plus it has SPF 20 in it so it protects you on sunnier days!

YSL Touche Eclat
One of my all year round staples is the Touche Eclat!  I use it under my eyes, down the sides of my nose and down the centre of my nose just to draw the light to the right places! I think it is amazing for under-eye brightening and it is one of those things that I will always repurchase!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
No make-up bag would be complete without a grubby looking Lasting Perfection Concealer in there. It is the ultimate high-street/drugstore concealer. It covers a multitude of sins without looking too heavy or cakey! I use this mainly for blemishes or if I think I need it I will dab a little of this under my eyes and then use my Touche Eclat on top of it.

St Tropez Skin Illuminator Rose
My favourite highlighter at the moment! I have done a full review of this here so I won't go on too much about it but I love applying this to the tops of my cheekbones and a little on my brow bone. On some days if I think my skin is looking abit dull I will mix some in with my foundation to make my skin look a little bit better!

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush Berry
During the Summer I do tend to reach for the cream blushes a lot more! I do have a few favourites but the one I have been reaching for lately has been the Maybelline Dream Touch blush in Berry. It gives a gorgeous rose-y colour to the cheeks and you have the option to just put a light layer of colour to the cheeks or build it up for a warmer colour.

NARS Laguna
Another thing I will always repurchase and I would be heartbroken if it ever got discontinued is Laguna. Loved by many and I am just another addict. I use it everyday, I use it to contour and on days that I'm feeling like I want to be more bronzed I will just use it in place of my blush!

MAC Eyebrow Palette
This is a more recent addition to my makeup collection but a very important one! I am obsessed with doing my eyebrows, I love a nice strong defined brow and I think I have finally found a good combination for me. I use a mixture of Omega and Espresso on an angled Louise Young brush.

Urban Decay NAKED Basics Palette
I bought this palette just after Christmas and it has been a firm favourite since. It's actually surprising that I haven't hit pan on this yet because it really is an everyday essential for me! I love the colours Venus, Naked 2 and Faint.

Benefit They're Real Mascara
This mascara is honestly Holy Grail material. I think this is my 3rd or 4th tube of it. I honestly find it really does what it says! The amount of times that I've had people ask me am I wearing falsies when I'm actually wearing this is unreal! It adds length and a nice subtle volume to your lashes without looking OTT!

Again, a more recent addition to my makeup collection is my Lanolips lip balm. I have heard so many people rave about this over the YouTube/Blogging community that when I seen it in London I knew I had to try it! Mine is in Lemonade and I can definitely see this being a favourite for months to come! 

So there you have it, those are my Summer Day essentials. Do you change up your make up for the hotter days? What essentials do you have in your makeup bag at the moment?

Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polishes

Hello Lovelies!

As you can see I am still taking advantage of the amazing weather we have been having in Ireland and photographing outside! I am loving the longer evenings too! Makes taking blog pictures all the easier!

Now as you all know I am a major nail polish junkie! I adore nail polish because it (usually) doesn't break the bank and can make a nice pop of colour to any outfit that may otherwise not be as colourful! When I heard that Rimmel were bringing out a new line of nail polishes I was so excited. As soon as I seen the promo pictures I knew I would be making purchases! First of all I think the packaging is lovely! It kind of reminds me of a Chanel polish (even though I know the Chanel polishes are square!) I think they look lovely displayed! The colour range is amazing. There are ten shades in total so there will pretty much be something for everyone! So far I have got two of these shades and I have my eye on one or two more.

The main thing about these polishes that I was so happy about was the brushes! I love that they have the thick "one swipe" brushes that make nail painting all that much easier! The formula is also amazing, I painted my nails with Hip Hop last Sunday night using my usual Seche Vite topcoat and it lasted me until yesterday before it started showing a small bit of wear along the tips! I thought that was absolutely amazing and I have already re-painted my nails with the same colour which you all know apart from my Midnight Bronze, that is a rare thing! 

The two colours I have are Hip Hop which is a gorgeous orange toned red, and New Romantic a classic pink. I absolutely adore Hip Hop, I have gotten so many compliments while wearing it, and it's a colour that I've been looking for on the high street for a while! It's such a gorgeous colour for during the Summer and since the weather has been nice the past couple of days it's very appropriate!
I think New Romantic would be perfect for a nice classic french manicure look and I feel I will be wearing this alot on my toes in coming months!

Have you picked up any colours from this range? If so what ones would you recommend?

No.7 BB Lips | Blush Coral

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good week! In Ireland we are having amazing weather, it's so sunny and warm (a very rare occurrence in Ireland!) so of course I took advantage and took some pictures outside! 

When one is handed a No.7 voucher in MUST spend it! This is what went through my head in Boots last week. It would have just been a waste if I didn't spend it so I decided to do the right thing and head straight over to the No.7 counter and spend it as quick as I could! I have been lusting after the Clarins Instant Lip Perfectors since the first time I seen them but unfortunately €17 is just too much for me to spend on a when I seen that No.7 had released the BB Lips (which lets be fair look pretty identical to the Clarins ones) I got very excited and knew that it was what I was going to purchase next time I got a voucher. 

Since getting this it has been a permanent fixture in my handbag! I have used it everyday without fail and have fallen a little bit in love with it! I am not normally a big lip gloss wearer. I hate the sticky feeling, the fact that your hair gets stuck in it and you have to keep topping it up. But this is not like that at all for me. I didn't find it sticky in the slightest which straight away gets a massive thumbs up from me! It is nicely pigmented so it gives a nice tint to your lips and if you want a stronger colour you can just layer up! I also found it incredibly long lasting on me, compared to other lipglosses I only had to reapply after eating and it stayed for the rest of the day! 

With the voucher I paid €4.50 which I think is an absolute bargain! I would definitely recommend checking these out if you have a No.7 voucher!

Colours of the Rainbow | Tag

Hello Lovelies!

I have seen this tag floating around YouTube the past few weeks and have really been enjoying watching them so I thought I would just do it on my blog! I just have to say that it was alot harder than I originally thought to pick the products, I had to leave out the multicoloured products because I just had a total mind blank and couldn't think of anything!

Red- Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Blood Orange
Even though the name of this states that it's Orange I would definitely class this as a red nail polish. It's my new go to red nail polish. It's an amazing true classic red. I love the Gelly Hi Shines by Barry M. I think the finish of these nail polishes are amazing, so glossy!

Orange - MAC Lady Danger Lipstick 
I'm sure you all know my obsession with this lipstick. It is my go to bright lipstick lately and I find myself reaching for it a lot more now that the weather is getting better! It's a nice alternative to the classic red lip or the bright pink, I think it makes my teeth look whiter too!

Yellow - Nivea Lip Butter Caramel Cream
This literally smells good enough to eat! While it may not be the most moisturising lipbalm that I own, it is the one that I have found myself reaching for lately. I just can't get past the smell. I literally want to lick it off when I have it on.

Green - Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
This was the easiest choice for me. You all know how much I love a good Liz Earle product, and I have raved about the Cleanse & Polish on more than one occasion. It is the only Cleanser I use, it doesn't break me out, it removes all my makeup and leaves my skin feeling nice and soft after. Plus since you are using a muslin cloth with it you are gently exfoliating your face everyday.

Blue - Nivea Refreshing Toner
A random purchase from one day browsing the aisles of Tesco. Again another product that I have raved about before, and a firm staple in my skincare routine. I just pour a little bit on a cotton pad after cleansing and just wipe it all over my face. It just refreshes my face after use and smells lovely!

Indigo - Terry Mugler Alien

One of my go-to perfumes! I got this for Christmas and it quickly became a favourite, I wear this most days when I'm not wearing my River Island perfume. I just feel so grown up when I wear it, and I just adore the packaging.

Violet - Maybelline The Falsies

This is one of my all time favourite mascaras, and I will repurchase this over and over again until they stop making it. It gives my lashes so much volume and makes them look so black. It also helps my lashes hold a curl for ages! Its such a bargain too! There is no need for a higher end mascara when you have this! I have actually been asked was I wearing false lashes when I had this on so it certainly lives up to the name!

Pink - Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter

I could have included the entire Soap & Glory range for Pink because that is just the main colour of all of their products. But I did whittle it down to just the Righteous Butter. Such a luxurious feeling product. The smell is absolutely gorgeous and it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and moisturised after! I have a full review of this product here

Soap & Glory Righteous Butter

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a brilliant weekend and if you're in Ireland I hope you are enjoying your long weekend! Now I have a new obsession, I have loved Righteous Butter for a long time now but I have become a woman obsessed the past few weeks! I recently ran out of my Smoothie Star body moisturiser (sob) so I have gone back to my old faithful The Righteous Butter. 

This has the classic Soap & Glory scent that everyone seems to love. It's been compared to Miss Dior Cherie  so if you like that you will definitely be a fan of this! It is such an amazing body moisturiser for such a bargainous price! It is definitely a lot thicker than other body moisturisers that I have used in the past so I would tend to use this more so at night time to give my body a deep moisturisation! I absolutely adore this, even the packaging looks pretty! I would recommend you just go smell this if nothing else. It is absolutely divine!
