The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask Review

A few months ago I felt like my skin needed more hydration overall. I needed something to put moisture back in my skin. I normally have combination skin and no matter what I tried I didn't find the perfect product until I tried The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask.

The Body Shops says: Chilly winds and indoor heating zap moisture from your complexion. Hydrate and replenish lost moisture with a weekly treatment. The Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask is a light, creamy gel-type mask that instantly relieves the uncomfortable feeling of dry, tight skin and restores the skin’s optimum moisture level. It smooths out the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration and leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.
I just happened to find this whilst browsing in my local body shop store. I liked that the main ingredient is Vitamin E -  as this is great to nourish and protect the skin leaving it soft and smooth exactly what I needed.
It comes in a 100ml tub and the mask is easy to use. It applies as a light moisturizer that sinks in to the skin well. Within minutes you feel your skin feeling hydrated and soft. It feels luxurious on the skin and moisturized.
The instructions say to apply it on for ten minutes and then wipe off, but I usually leave it on all night and I wake up feeling soft and smooth. I am using it at least twice a week and love it.
The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink-In Moisture Mask is the first face product I have tried from The Body Shop and I am definitely happy with it. 
I would recommend this to anyone that needs to add moisture to their face and want to feel hydrated. This retails for $28.95aud and is available from The Body Shop in store and online.

The Lust Have It FAB - fashion and beauty box for June has arrived. I love this box because it has a mixture of both beauty and fashion items - both things that I love!

And once again this month proved to be yet another fantastic box. I love everything in it and definitely great value.

The box came with this gorgeous tissue paper  - brown, pink and white a beautiful combination.

The box came with six items in total - four beauty items and two fashion accessories.

I am soooooo in love with the packaging of the beauty products by Teeez Trend Cosmetics - I have never heard or seen their products before.

The first item is a Paradise Perfect Lipgloss - it is a clear gloss with a subtle golden glow. Its says that it has a volumizing effect to the lips - this is a full size and valued at $25

The second item is a Foundation brush - made with natural goat hair valued at $35

The third item is the Mysterious Crystal Eyeliner - the one I got is a black one and it has pearl particles that create a metallic effect, it glides on and does not budge once it sets - this is full size and valued at $28

Here is a close up of the packaging!

The fashion accessories are really pretty and something that I would wear. They are a matching earrings and bracelet set.

The earrings are a crystal square drop earrings valued at $19.95 and the bracelet has the same crystal look with a theme of x and o along the bracelet, valued at $29.95.

Killer Queen Katy Perry Oh So Sheer Perfume Review

I love perfumes and wear a different one everyday. The latest I have tried is the newest one by Katy Perry called Oh So Sheer.

Spring Time's Eau de Royalty! A Light and Luminous Fragrance for the Spring season offering all the Killer Queen royalty with a little bit of playful attitude.

I love when perfume bottles are so well presented and this one definitely is unique and different.

The bottle is the prettiest lilac colour which I love and the shape is a diamond shaped bottle with a crown shape for the top.

The fragrance is made up of:
Top Notes - Purple Plum, Mulberry, Blackberry and Elderberries
Middle Notes  - Red Velvet Flower, Rainbow Plumeria, Purple Freesia and Purple Lilac
Bottom Notes  - Cashmeran, Natural Patchouli Heart and Liquid Praline

This is a light fruity scent with a mix of some floral sweet scent too - when first sprayed is strong and then fades throughout the day. This wears for about 3 hours, I do wish it lasted longer.

It is a nice light perfume with a fresh clean smell. I haven't tried any other Katy Perry fragrance but definitely would say this is a great one to add to your collection.

Have you tried this or any other Katy Perry fragrance?

Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes Eyeshadow Pallette Review

Chi Chi is a brand that I have never tried before but I have seen it in Target, so a few months ago they had a huge Christmas sale on Chi Chi products so I decided to buy the Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes Eyeshadow Pallette.

The Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes palette comes with twelve eye shadows  - there are ten shimmery shadows and two matte shadows. The colours are mostly soft pinks, browns, taupe, mauve, blue shadows which are all so wearable for everyday looks. I wear eyeshadow everyday to work and this palette is all I need to wear simple gorgeous eyeshadows.

I really love the staying power of these eyeshadows (I always wear a eye primer) They don't crease on me and they look good all day.

The texture of these eyeshadows are soft and pigmented without much fallout at all which I love the most. They are so easy to work with, I usually like to wear one colour all over my lid and then just blend out the sides with a slightly darker colour.

They really are good quality eyeshadows at an affordable price. They tick all the boxes - great pigmentation, no fallout, long wearing, soft/buttery texture and wearable colours.

This is available from Target stores and Chi Chi website for $22.95aud. I am so impressed with this product, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for great quality eyeshadows.

Clinique cheek pop in plum pop review

Clinique recently released some new blushes and it took just one look for me to fall in love with this blush. This blush packaging and presentation is totally gorgeous.

A pretty flower shaped blush - stunning! How could you not like this blush?!

So you already know that I love the sturdy simple packaging. The flower detail is definitely eye catching and I love that you can see it through the clear top and the colours are so pretty - there are four shades in total. I have the plum pop shade which is a beautiful pink colour that I think is wearable for all skin colours.

Clinique says: Vibrant yet natural-looking cheek colour that looks virtually powderless. In a silky smooth, stay-true formula with shades for every skin tone. That just-pinched look, simply effortless.

So pretty!
The texture of this blush is silky smooth and really finely milled. When you first apply to your cheeks it is a light coverage but buildable and as you apply more you see the gorgeous colour come to life. It blends effortlessly and lasts all day on the skin.

It really gives a natural finish to the skin with a beautiful pop of colour.  A beautiful addition to anyone's makeup collection - you can check out more about the blushes on the Clinique website here

Beauty tips for those who didn't get a good night sleep!

I love my sleep and try to aim to get a good nights rest every night of at least eight to nine hours however this is always not possible.

So I have some tips for you if you didn't get that good night sleep and you need to look good during the day.

1. Cleanse your skin and use a nice nourishing moisturer that will plump the skin and leave it looking healthy and smooth. Putting a bit of effort to look after your skin will definitely help to make you look alive.

2. Use a concealer to conceal those under eye circles. This is good to hide those dark under eye circles that creep up when you don't have enough sleep.

3. Use a illuminator to give your skin a nice glow to it. I like to use powder illuminator as it is quick to use and easy to apply with a brush. A little is all you need to give you a nice glow around the cheek area, middle of your nose and chin area.

4. Use a bright lipstick to draw attention away from your eyes. Any bright lipstick will do the job of giving you a fresh overall look - I like bright pinks or coral lipstick colours.

5. Take a multivitamin or more specifically vitamin B to give you energy and help you get through the day. Also drink lots of water to help your body stay hydrated.

Do you have any tips for when you don't have enough sleep?
