My French Pharmacy picks from Escentual

The image source - Escentual.com
Hello!
Since discovering Escentual website a few months ago it's been my favourite place to buy French skincare as it has always the best prices. And to make things even better they'll have throughout June up to 1/3 off French Pharmacy brands like La Roche-Posay, Avene, Vichy, Bioderma, Nuxe, Claudalie. It's a great opportunity to stock up on favourite products and try new ones.

ORLY GLOSSER High Shine Topcoat - Review

Hello!
I am always on the look for the next best topcoat that will prolong the wear of my nail polish as I am unfortunately one of those girls whose perfectly finished manicure lasts sometimes only a few hours. If I get two days chip free nails it's nearly a miracle. I read a couple of great reviews on ORLY GLOSSER High Shine Topcoat and decided to try it myself.

Bourjois Paris Blush nr 34 Rose d'Or

 Hello!
Bourjois Blushes always attract me with their cute round packaging with a little magnet to secure the closure of the little pot, mirror inside the compact and the little brush which is actually not bad if you need to touch up your blush during the day and the good selection of different shades. Even though, prior to this one I own only one more blush from Bourjois. While browsing in Boots during one of my, way too many, visits to this shop I spotted an unusually looking Little Round Pot blush on Bourjois stand and decided to swatched it. The moment I did it I fall in love with this beautiful blush!

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment - Review

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment
 Hello!
GLAMGLOW is a brand famous of their masks containing "magic mud" used by Hollywood stars and celebrities. If you want to read a story how it all started you can do it here. Many beauty bloggers and vloggers adore this stuff so when I got the chance to try ( see my May You Beauty post) the SUPERMUD Clearing Treatment I didn't have to think twice.
SUPERMUD claims:
 "amazing detoxifying mud mask is fantastic for fighting all common skin concerns - it helps with the brightening and evening of the complexion; creates a more youthful and smooth skin tone; improves elastin and collagen; de-clogs and minimises pore size and fights unwanted breakouts, by reducing redness and super-speeding the healing process."

Try before you buy at Mistrys Pharmacy

What's on my nails? #10 nailgirls colour

Hello!
The weather has been spoiling us lately, here in UK, with plenty of sunshine and higher temperatures and all I dream of is some relaxing holidays somewhere exotic. Unfortunately the holidays are not on the horizon yet but at least I can enjoy bright Summer nails.

Fake Bake 60 minutes Self Tan Liquid - Review

Hello!
When the sun is shining and it's getting warmer the way we dress changes and we tend to expose more bare skin which in my case is not ghostly white but pale enough not to look very attractive in short dresses, skirts or shorts. Normally I am not a fake tan fan and I only ever used gradually tanning body lotions which give just a hint of colour to my skin. But when I saw in the latest You Beauty Discovery box one of the items to choose from was Fake Bake 60 minutes Self Tan Liquid I decided to bite the bulette and try it.

Love Me Beauty - May Edition

Hello!
It's time of the month again when Love Me Beauty box arrives and for sharing my thoughts on its content. This month I was rather disappointed with the selection of products and just because I forgot about the possibility of pausing my subscription, which is a brilliant idea, I've ordered my box with items from menu 3. I wasn't very excited when I got the box but there are nice things which I will use so it's not a total waste of money.
So onto the products:

What's on my nails? #9 Orly Hawaiian Punch

 
Hello!
The latest colour on my nails is this beautiful hot pink with slight purple shimmer by Orly called Hawaiian Punch. It's just perfect for sunny days or even rainy ones as a little pick me up. I've had it for a while now but never got around it to use it so it's my first time  and I just love this shade and how it looks on my nails.

My favourite face masks and treatments

Hello!
I'm a big fan of any kind of masks and treatments that promise to leave my skin smooth, radiant , unclog and minimise my pores. With my oily skin, large, congested pores and uneven skin tone I'm always on the lookout for products to improve my skin appearance. In the last couple of months my skin started to look its best and I'm very happy with my skincare routine so I wanted to share with you the extra treatments I use regularly and I think they keep my skin looking clear and healthy.

Makeup Revolution London - getting to know the brand

 Hello!
Makeup Revolution is a new, budget friendly, British brand with a wide selection of makeup products with prices starting at £1. Think of a new MUA-like brand and they're also stocked up in Superdrug.

 Few weeks after finding out about it I placed my first order and bought a few items to try  and see if they live up to the hype surrounding the new brand. I already love their eyeshadow palette Iconic 3 which I reviewed here. And today I am going to share with you my thoughts on another products.

Empties #1 What I used up in April

Hello!
"Empties" is another series of blog posts I like to read because you can find out about products which never made to a full review or didn't deserve a one. So I decided to join the "empties" club:)
It's so hard to remember to keep empty containers if you are not used to but I managed to used up a few products in the last few weeks and kept them to share with you my thoughts on them.
