Beauty buys of June

Hello Darling's

Throughout June I have been shopping a little more only purely because I need to update my wardrobe as summer is very closely approaching. With that in mind I thought I'm going to have to update/renew my beauty products (ie make up, fragance etc). A friend of mine recommended I visit the No7 counter in Boots as I had mentioned that I wanted a new foundation and as they do the Match Made Service. I have oily combination skin and was looking for something that will give me coverage but not too much and too heavy on my skin, the lady advised to try the No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation. She applied the Cool Beige and I loved it! the coverage it gave without looking too much and fake. I got a new Foundation brush, from No7 as well but as I bought two items from No7 I got a free gift, which was a set of miniatures, inside was a mascara, BB lips, nail varnish and a eye shadow, perfect on the go. Everytime I paint my nails I never know which one to choose, so far I've added Barry M Gelly High Shine in Passion Fruit, its such a vibrant colour and Essie in Not Just A Pretty Face which is a pretty colour, to the collection. Both are quick drying which is a must to me these days. I've read in a few different places over time that lip scrubs are good obviously for getting rid of dry skin which I notice more when I apply lipstick. The only place I have seen them is in Lush, I thought I'd give it a try so I got the Bubblegum one, it smells 'Lush' and its edible too!! And a little charity hand/body cream pot. My trip earlier this month to London doing some light shopping included going to Victoria Secrets to stock up on some of of their body mist/sprays my two favourite have to have are the Amber Romance and Pure Seduction (I've had many compliments! but I found another one Sensual Blush. They all smell amazing, so if you get a chance pop in! I think thats all I bought .... for now (hehe!)

Garnier Pure Active Review

I've been looking for a moisturiser to use day and night that doesn't make my skin feel greasy and clogged up for quite a while now I've gone through a fair few and yet to find something that helps until now. I had been using Lush's Vanishing cream for a while and at first I thought it was brilliant but after a while I had noticed it was leaving my skin a greasy and would become shiny throughout the day and as soon as I'd get home I would often get some tonner water on a cotton pad and remove the grease and dirt. I have a oily combination skin and struggle to find something that's the right balance for my skin. I've never really thought of using Garnier products but I had often seen adverts on the TV and happened to be in Boots one day and they had some of the Garnier Pure A selection on offer. I was stood there for quite a while reading on what ones done which and what I think would be best. I picked up two, I thought I'd do a day and night and test it over a period of time. As my night one I purchased the Garnier Pure Active Anti Spot 24hr Moisturiser and for the day Garnier Skin Naturals Pure A Anti-Imperfection Moisturiser.
