Skincare Loving- L'occitane Immortelle Brightening Set

Hello Sweeties!






Radiant,even&glowing skin?-Yes please count me in! I have been using the Immortelle Brightening Set for about 2months and I am so excited to tell you about it cause I have never really loved skincare products to this extend and experienced such amazing results. No irritation,no breakouts just beautiful healthy looking skin!!!!!





L'OCCITANE SAYS:-
The Immortelle flower is a legendary plant that holds a magical beauty secret. The secret of eternal youth as it never fades even after being picked. Bellis Perennis,the daisy flower, is the flower of light. When these two flowers were blended together, the Immortelle Brightening range was born - the perfect solution for youthful, even- toned,smooth and luminous skin

IMMORTELLE BRIGHTENING CLEANSING FOAM 
Enriched with Immortelle floral water and citrus fruit peel,this gentle cleanser leaves skin clean and fresh. The complexion is evenly toned and radiant. I adore this cleanser,it smells lovely *flowery* leaves my skin clean without drying and stripping off natural oils. It is a wonderful cleanser and whats not to love when its said to be suitable for all skin types huh?

IMMORTELLE ESSENTIAL WATER 
An alcohol free toner,which evens the complexion and adds luminosity to the skin. Enriched with Immortelle floral water,Bellis Perennis extract, Vitamin C derivative and anti-oxidizing green tea extract,that refreshes, softens and helps to firm the skin. This toner is lovely, leaves my skin looking brighter and feeling refreshed


IMMORTELLE BRIGHTENING MOISTURE CREAM
The Brightening Moisture Cream offers triple action benefits to correct wrinkles, even skin tone and brighten the complexion. Immortelle essential oil stimulates collagen production to fill wrinkles and firm the skin for a more youthful complexion. Bellis Perennis extract and a Vitamin C derivative reduce the appearance of age spots to even skin tone. I really love this little pot of goodness,it smells lovely like its fellow sibblings a little goes a long way, leaves my face feeling soft,supple,even -toned and radiant



No makeup here just lip balm!
Thats the secret to my radiant skin as for now will review Lush Ocean salt face scrub&Good Things 5minute facial mask very soon which i use once or twice a week and thus all.




                         what skincare have you been loving?
           what products do you use to achieve radiant/glowy skin?

Hello Beautiful People!





I have been looking for a new lipstick for Fall. I swatched so many brands but finally settled for the YSL Rouge Volupte number 22 in Exquisite Plum which is a rich deep plum and perfect for the season, I swear the Rouge Voluptes are so addictive you never stop at one. I do love Rouge Voluptes as they are everything I look for in a lipstick. They are moisturising, long wearing and make me feel fabulous. I already  have   # 16 Red Temptation Rouge Volupte Perle #104 Stellar Pink  and have 2more on my wishlist 



ROUGE VOLUPTÉ
Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15
What it is:
An extremely smooth and creamy lipstick with a formula that transforms into a fluid veil of radiant color when it touches the lips.
What it does:
One of these Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15 is sure to be your new signature color: they’re sensual, radiant, and strong. With shades that drench the lips with densely pigmented color and a unique color-shine complex, lips are visibly smoothed, plumped, and radiant with luminous satin color.

It’s made with a long-lasting and highly comfortable formula that contains SPF 15.

Review: Simple Spotless Skin Cleansing Pads

Hello Beautiful People!





I am a massive fan of Simple from when I was a teen their products kept my skin clear and smooth you can find some of my reviews of their simple-kind-to-skin-deep-cleansing-face-mask and simple-radiance-brightening-cleansing-wipes


WHAT SIMPLE SAYS?
Get results from day 1 with our Spotless Skin Deep Clean Cleansing Pads.
Our special blend of cleansing goodness contains Zinc PCA, Chamomile and a natural antibacterial, Phytosphingosine, which helps to deep clean the T Zone which is commonly prone to blackheads and blemishes, while the textured pads help to exfoliate the skin. Perfect for even sensitive skin.
  • Results from day 1
  • Skin cleansing ingredients
  • Natural antibacterial
  • No perfume, no colour no unnecessary ingredients so it won't upset your skin
  • Dermatologically tested and approved




How to Use

Sweep pads lightly over face.
Do not rinse off.
After use, dispose of pads in the bin, do not flush.
Use as part of a Spotless Skin regime.

INGREDIENTS
Aqua, Propylene Glycol, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Sodium Citrate, Zinc PCA, Ceteareth-20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Dipropylene Gycol, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Propylparaben, Ceteareth-12, Phytospringosine HCI, Citric Acid, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil, Linalool

MY THOUGHTS
Month of September my face was a little problematic prolly due to stress or hormones i dont know or maybe the fact I was panicking about returning to Uni yes Im a panicky and anxious person sometimes , my face felt a bit irritated,minor itching and had a bit of redness so these pads came at the perfect time
After cleansing my face at night I skipped toner and used these instead and  went to bed I noticed when I woke up my skin was calm and the redness was gone

With continued everyday use of up to a month my skin was no longer irritated,it was back to normal. Before I used this my skin was a bit oily but using the pads everyday made my face return to its normal condition. The pads do smell very clean and does calm a lot for redness. Now  please bare in mind my skin is not problematic  at all so I wouldnt know how these would work for someone with acne,pimples, severe breakouts

The pads themselves are really good but you have to be gentle as they may feel a little scratchy, as you swipe them on your skin you will feel them exfoliate your skin


Overall Im pleased with the cleansing pads  they did help calm my skin and redness but Im not happy about the size of the pads as I think they should have been made as the size of regular simple wipes which are great by the way. 



*Disclosure* Product sent by PR for trial and review purposes, I was not paid to do this review. Opinions are 100% my own



Where to buy
You can purchase these from BOOTS  60pads for £4.99

This or That Makeup Tag!

Hello Beautiful People!



I was tagged by Miss Dre of http://www.soshewritesbymissdre.com to do this tag a few weeks back and its only now I have had the chance to do it. I love Miss Dre's blog which is a mixture of beauty,music,lifestyle and fashion posts. If you havent checked her out I dont know what you are waiting for lol







Blush or Bronzer? I'm a blush gal anytime I have makeup I havent found perfect bronzer as of yet but Im hoping to purchase a Bobbi Brown one soon.



Lipgloss or Lipstick?   Im a lipstick addict now although I was strictly a gloss girl in my teens. My fave lipsticks are the Amplified finishes from Mac and YSL Rouge Voluptes



Chapstick or Lip Butter? I have to say Chapsticks as I have found Revlon lip butters to be too minty for my liking



Matte or Sparkle Eye Shadow? I barely wear eyeshadows nowadays but when I do I prefer sparkle eyeshadows ,matte ones just tend to be a bit blah for me


Gel, Liquid, Cream, or Pencil Eyeliner? Liquid liner all the way. I lovee  precise felt tip liquid liner my faves are L'oreal perfect Slim and Nars Eyeliner stylo in Nuits blanches


Foundation or Concealer? Foundation. Believe it or not I hardly use concealer, I love natural finish foundation with light to medium coverages



Liquid or Powder Foundation? Liquid foundation. Powder foundation just doesnt appeal to me apart from the fact it looks cakey on my skin



Neutral or Statement Eyes? I create statement eyes just for fun being at hoe and experimenting but on a day to day basis you will see me with plain neutral eye looks



Pressed or Loose Shadows? Pressed shadows. Loose shadows are quite messy and difficult to carry around.



Waterproof or Non Waterproof? Mascara? I tend to buy non waterproof mascaras all the time its just a preference



Brushes, Sponges or Fingers? Brushes. For foundation I use flat top Kabuki which lives you with airbrushed flawless face. I use Avon angled brush for blush and the Mac 217 if im wearing eyeshadows.



Powder, Cream, or Liquid Highlighter? Im still on the hunt for perfect highlighter but so far been loving liquid highlighter which is the Benefit High beam one



Thanks for tagging me, Miss Dre! I enjoyed the tag ! I would love all of you beauty lovers to do this tag!! I specifically tag:

For oily skin prone to imperfections. Unclogs and visibly tightens pores. Gives skin a radiant glow.

Is Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy Daily Energising Gel Scrub right for me?Yes, if you have combination/oily skin prone to imperfections (excess oil, visible pores, dull complexion) and if you are looking for an invigorating and fresh, yet effective, way to deeply cleanse pores.

Why is it different?- The scrub formula with purifying salicylic acid contains exfoliating particles to deeply cleanse impurities, tighten pores and help protect against the appearance of imperfections.
- Enriched with extracts of grapefruit, pomegranate and a derivative of vitamin C selected for their purifying and boosting qualities.
- The invigorating fresh fragrance washes over your face with a fruity burst. It effectively cleanses whilst giving skin a zing and boosting its radiance.

I love me a good face mask and this one is definitely a keeper,its become a staple in my skincare routine.

 


NYX ROUND LIPSTICK IN FIRE
I love NYX lipsticks,they have variety of shades which are pretty,creamy and highly pigmented

    I bought this just because my normal day cream has no SPF





    NIVEA Daily Essentials  Double Effect Eye make-up Remover enriched with Cornflower Extract
    I absolutely love this eye makeup remover it reminds me so much of my beloved Nars eye makeup remover which I have just finished and at less than a fiver this is a must have,I wont be buying the Nars one anytime soon unless its my birthday and I feel like splurging ,this Nivea one is the  perfect eye makeup remover

    • Effectively removes even extreme waterproof mascara and make-up without any rubbing needed
    • Protects the sensitive eyelashes with its caring bi-phase formula

    Nails of the day: Wet n Wild Nail colour in Rustic 233

    Hello Chicas!






    I was rocking this gorgeous brown nail polish the other day. I normally wouldnt buy/wear brown shades as I think they dont really show up on my skintone. Rustic is a very pretty shade,I applied one coat after Barry M nail base,the colur was so easy to apply with no streaks.

    Rustic did start chipping after 2days but never mind I like it anyways






    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS SHADE
    WHAT NAIL POLISH ARE YOU WEARING???

    Athenaeum Spa

    Hello Beautiful People





    The BFF and I decided we needed some form of  spa treatment as we have been so occupied& havent gone on holiday for a while. I took a few days browsing on Wahanda website trying to find great deals for the two of us and I finally decided  on the  2 FOR 1WHATS NOT TO LOVE PAMPER PACKAGE for £100 with 2treatments in at half an hour each with the choice of a Facial OR MassageOR Body Exfoliation OR Body Wrap and use of Wet Spa facilities for an hour


    Okay so Thursday morning 4th October I tag alongside my friend to the Spa which is located in the beautiful 5star Athenaeum hotel in Green Park our appointment was 11am we got there 20minutes before time becoz errmmmm I  am a punctual person



    ATHENAEUM HOTEL is located 6 minutes from Hyde Park Corner and about 10 minutes from Buckingham Palace
    Upon arrival we were greeted,quickly escorted to the stairs in the basement of the hotel where the Spa is located.
    At the Spa reception there were Elemis products on display like stand which I forgot to take a picture of but we were welcomed in a nice way asked about what treatments we wanted me & the Bff chose to have a facial&body wrap, we were shown changing rooms and forms to fill after we finished
    and here are a few pictures from changing room which is quite small but still nice
    Ren Citrus handwash
    Ren Grapeseed,Jojoba and Shea butter body cream
    There's body butters onto the wall, Treatment prices for the Spa and a blow drier and a  huge mirror
    shower area in changing,really nice btw

    I really love the design on the wall  ,nice clean bathrobs , my friend and I and the next lady already had ours
    I took this picture standing by the door so as you can tell the place is quite small
    We finished changing and headed towards wet area to fill forms about our skin type etc After a few minutes we were taken into treatment rooms

    Treatment room&beds,sorry this picture is dark but I hope you get an idea lol

    Products used for treatments

    Had to use flash on my camera to get the products upclose.
    They used Ren Products for our treatments which I really love by the way

    So our beauty therapists werent all that chatty but they answered every question I heard. Apparently we had the Ren Bespoke Facial which is deep cleanses the skin,tones and lifts the skin so that you feel fresh and revitalised. The facial was really nice the whole cleanse,tone,scrub, mask&moisturise process,I loved it and Im sure it did something that other people can see because its been non stop compliments since the facial. Personally when I touch my skin it feels so soft as a baby's bottom, I seem poreless and my skin jus feels beautiful to be honest

    and 

    The Sea weed Body wrap which I never want to have again. Apparently sI heard body wraps are great at hydrating the skin, riding the body of toxins and in some cases help lose inches. Whichever way Im not having that treatment again neither is my friend. The process is to apply like a sea weed or coconut like mask onto the body mainly legs,hands,tummy and breasts if you like but I chose not to have it on my breasts. It feels really cold on application after applying you are wrapped up into some form of plastic and left for like 20 mins. During those 20mins the therapists left the room and I just remained silent. I started feeling really cold with the plastics and it started to itch me body and making me uncomfortable. At first I thought it was me alone suffering so I asked my friend if she feels weird at all,she didnt even need to answer because she burst out laughing&yes I knew I wasnt so weird after all. Honestly I do not care what that treatment does but I wont be having it again,it was so cold&room temperature was a bit blah. I have never felt like a snail/slug in my entire life but at that very moment I thought I was one

    After 20minutes the therapists came to remove our face&eye masks and moisturise our face. We were told we can now wipe of the body mask thingy , at that moment I just sang hallelujah and hurried to rinse ourselves in the shower and  go use wet area. We were told to help ourselves to fruits, juices and lots of water in the sitting area 

    Display of nail polishes for those coming for mani&pedicures!
    Display of products on sale mainly from Ren and Elemis
    Table in sitting area
    other chairs to relax and I think they have some jewllery on sale right at the corner if my memory saves me right
    sofa in the sitting area
    Table with fruits,water and juices
    Jaccuzis in the wet area!
    Towels in wet area
    Sitting chairs in wet area
    I went into the jacuzzi whilst my friend went into the sauna, I dont do steamers&saunas I will just lose breath&faint. I forgot to take picture of sauna though but I can tell u its very small but nice







    OVERALL
    The Athenaeum Spa is Unisex so can make you a bit uncomfortable and the Spa is fairly small but luxurious.The staff were okay and answered all my questions. I think its a great package and good value for money as well. I would definitely return for the facial  in the future and something else maybe as they also do manicure, pedicure, massage and body exfoliation.  I definitely recommend checking it out if you in London. My friend and I had a lovely time
