Buckley London Bracelet’s

The lovely people over at Buckley London gifted me some bracelets recently to enjoy and share with my lovely readers. I applied for the gift via Bloggers Love Hub and was over the moon when I received an email telling me I was fortunate enough to be picked. I picked a stack of bracelets as my gift and was very excited when my new wrist bling arrived.

I chose the Sparkle Mesh Bracelet’s which come in a stack of 3 for £24.99. Individually the price tag on each bracelet states £10.00 so the stack is an absolute bargain. Each bracelet has a slight stretch meaning you can get it on which is good because my first impression was “How am I going to put that on?” All 3 bracelet’s have a charm on them and I have to admit my favourite one is the Rose Gold bracelet. The charm on it is so pretty which makes it even more attractive. When all 3 are on though, the bracelets look so good together and I will definitely be wearing them day to day.

My Recent Empties

I’ve been noticing a lot of these posts on other amazing blogs and thought I would have a go at one myself. I have been trying to restrain myself recently from spending money just for the sake of it and instead trying to use up all the many products I am hoarding in my room. I have used up 4 different products recently which are all different to each other.

The first is my trusty tub of Sudocrem. This has been my go to product over Winter for dry skin and I normally dab a bit on spots to reduce redness. I finished the tub this month and haven’t bought another as of yet as I’m introducing new products to my skin care regime and don’t want to overload my face on product.

The second is my Loreal Micellar water. I first read about Micellar water on some blogs early last year and decided to purchase some myself. I bought Loreal as it was on offer at the time in Asda and have since fallen in love with it. It is my new saviour for taking off my makeup after a long day at work. it refreshes my skin and leaves it feeling soft without stripping away my skin and making it look red and angry.

Thirdly I have used up my W7 Photo Shoot foundation. This has been a great find for me as I am a rather pale shade of white and struggle to find a pale enough foundation. I stumbled upon this one in B&M bargains of all places in their makeup bit. It was on offer for about £3.00 so I thought I would take a chance, and BOY have I been impressed. It has been pale enough not to give me dodgy lines but I have bought a new foundation in a Blog sale that I am going to try out for a while and will review later.

Lastly I used up my Phil Smith Big It Up conditioner. I have very thick hair so conditioner is vital to giving me the ability to even brush the stuff! I bought this when it was on offer and was impressed at the start of usage. However after using it for a while I have found it hasn’t so much “bigged up my hair” than left it a bit flat and lacklustre. Therefore I don’t plan on buying this one again as personally it didn’t suit my hair type.

Have you used up any products you could recommend to me recently? or send me your posts if you have done something similar!

Passion for Natural: review

I am a big fan of skin care products and am always looking for a new product to try out on my tempermental 24yr old skin. I have crazy skin that like any other girl/woman changes when their hormones are going wild. It absolutely frustrates me so much because I actually would love to not wear much makeup instead of having to cover up spots and blotches. I was contacted by the lovely people at Passion For Natural via twitter a couple of weeks ago about sending me some products to try out as they had seen my blog.

I was really intrigued by this company as they use natural ingredients including one of my favourites which is Aloe Vera. I don’t know about you but I always take an Aloe Vera gel aftersun on holiday with me and always have better looking skin when I use it. Therefore I was really happy to try these products and see what effect they had.

Passion for Natural sent me 2 products; the Aloe Vera Gel and the Aloe Vera Body Butter.The gel claims to be good for instant cooling relief to dry, irritated skin and the Body butter is for all over moisturising. I have been using the Body butter after a shower to moisturise and found it to be really good at giving me soft and supple skin. I have been using the Aloe Vera Gel on my face mainly as my skin has been über dry and irritated so I thought it would be a perfect match. The first few days I used the gel my skin felt and looked a lot healthier with a bit of a glow. After this thought it started to make my skin feel more dry. I think this was because I was just using it as I felt like it and it actually was drying my face out more. I have been alternating it with a cocoa butter moisturiser and found that this has been more effective at soothing my face.

Here is the official blurb from the website itself:

“Following our beliefs, we introduce you to Passion for Natural. A range of products that provide you with the wonderful active benefits of its natural components, delivered with elegance and satisfaction by using the finest materials available.

Here at Passion for Natural we have aimed to create the very best and most effective, modern skin care experience.

Overall I am really impressed with the products and will continue to use them in my routine. I will be definitely looking to purchase the products again in the future when I use these up.
