Holy Land Cosmetics

                                                           Hello My Lovelies!

Back in November I was contacted by a Business Reflextion PR representative asking me if I wanted to try their products. First thing I thought was I had never heard of the company before but being a beauty blogger I am always happy to try new things in the market. I took about a week researching about the company before I accepted the offer. The representative told me to choose products I wanted to try so the line I originally wanted to try based on my own skincare needs was not available at that time so they sent me other products instead.

Here is the Brands Mission
The Holy Land brand is used worldwide by leading dermatologists,medical aestheticians and beauty therapists to provide result-oriented treatments for all skin types and aesthetic problems. The effectiveness of our products,along with the ability to combine formulations fromdifferent product lines,enable experts to provide non invasive treatments for an extensive  variety of conditions and tailor skincare regimens according to their clients' needs with signaificant,visible results

Here are some of the things  they offer
. Anti Aging Cosmeceuticals
. Eye Contour Treatment
. Acne skincare
. Skincare brightening
. Dry skincare
. Oily skincare
. Whitening
. Sunbrella
. Body treatment& various

I was sent several samples to try but will only talk about the ones I have used

ProBiotic 3 in 1 Soap,Cleanser and Toner
This is from the ProBiotic Range and claims to remove environmental debris and makeup without drying or irritating the skin leaving it feeling refreshed. This cleanser felt so soft when I I applied it on my face. I used it to cleanse my face for 3days,my skin felt clean and moisturised. It did have a very faint fragrance but you can barely smell it. I wouldnt know if it removes makeup because I didnt have enough samples to try taking off the makeup. I must say that it did not irritate my sensitive dry to combination skin. Overall It did cleanse my face and I was pleased with the results I would buy this cleanser and recommend to all to try it

Renew Formula Hydro Soft
This is from the Renew Formula its a lightweight moisturiser,easily absorbed without leaving an oily sheen on the skin. I used this moisturiser for a couple of days. It left my skin hydrated and looking smooth. With continued use you are bound to have a younger looking complexion. I really loved using this moisturiser I would buy it again and recommend everyone looking for a great everyday moisturizer to try it

C the Success Vitamin C Cream
This is from the C the Success Range it fights free radical damage and improves skintone and texture, Vitamin C success cream is a hydrating cream that protects against sun damage,improves pigmentation problems and is a key co factor in the production of collagen. It is ideal for all skin types. Having used this cream for about 4days my skin looked brighter and felt very smooth. It left my skin moisturised without being greasy. I really loved the texture of this cream,would buy it and recommend to all those who want radiant skin

If you get a chance please visit their  website here or to check what they offer and prices of products. They have a salon in Bristol namely Clifton Forever young where you can pop in. At the salon they offer beauty treatments,body treatments,Botox,Natural Peels and Semi Permanent makeup and will help you choose the right skincare regimen

Disclaimer: These samples were sent to me by a PR representative and that has not affected my opinion. I was not paid to do this review my opinions are 100% genuine and honest

Have a great day
Stay Beautiful&Blessed

Let me tell y'all,I really love these lipglosses.They are non sticky,they last for a good 4-5 hours even when eating and drinking which is fantastic.

Knockout Red Nails

Hello Chicas How are y'all doing???

So my nail polish of the week has to be Knockout Red from Boots 17 Cosmetics. Its a fast finish nail polish that dries in 60seconds perfect for us girls on the go. The colour is amazingly intense,the finish is high glossy shine,the quality is just love. The price is reasonable at just £2.99 from Boots stores and website

I applied Collection 2000 basecoat and one base of Knockout Red

The two negative things I have to mention is that it doesnt last long mine chipped after 3days and the other fact is that its staining even if you apply a  basecoat

Overall thoughts
I really love this polish,I would buy again and I would recommend to all as
there is wide variety of colours to choose from,the price is affordable and the polish dries quickly

Review: Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush

Hello Chicas,How r y'all doing

Today Im going to share my thoughts about the Sigma F80 brush. I won this earlier in the year from my lovely blogger friend Christine's giveaway. Can check her amazing blog here Having heard all the raves about Sigma from fellow bloggers and youtube Gurus I was dying to try Sigma brushes so when I actually won the F80 it made me a very happy woman lol

What Sigma Says:
The exclusive flat top Synthetic kabuki was designed to deliver a flawless makeup application. The Sigma F80 is a buffer brush that can be used to blend powder or liquid products. The short and dense bristlesmake it easy to buff your liquid foundation. The long handle adds comfort to your makeup application. The Synthetic fibres are ideal to be used with liquid products and can be easily cleaned. Made of Synthetic Sigmax HD filament

First of all  I was amazed by how this brush is incredibly soft. I use this brush to apply my liquid foundations everyday. I have also used it to apply cream blushers,cream foundation and powder blushers and it works just as great

The Sigma F8O really buffs in products into the skin and leaves a nice airbrushed,flawless finish
I have also noticed I use less foundation and products with this brush

The F80 has become my Holy grail  brush for foundation

Final thoughts
I am so in love with this brush,I cant live without it,Its definitely a must have
Another thing I have to mention is that I didnt experience any shedding at all with this brush even tho I wash it 2-3 times a week. I really do recommend this brush to everyone,its worth every penny


Have a great day
Stay Beautiful&Blessed
Much Love
