Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque (Mango and Avocado) Review!

Hi lovelies,

I have another quick review today as part of the Beauty Directory Expert Panel...the soon-to-be released Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque (Mango and Avocado)! That's a bit of a mouthful, phew!

Sukin Hydrating Facial Masque

This hydrating mask sounded quite interesting as I love anything with mango in it. There are also quite a few other lovely ingredients in it, with the main ones listed below:

Mango extract - source of antioxidants such as Vitamins A, B and C, phenolic acids and caratenoids to help protect the skin against skin damage, boost the immune system and be astringent to prevent acne.

Mango butter - softens the skin with its rich content of C18 fatty acids and triglycerides.

Olive oil - moisturising and softening properties due to the high concentration of fatty acids. It's nutritious for the skin, absorbs and penetrates easily and reduces the appearance of scars.

Papaya extract - loaded with vitamins A, B and C, and nutrients like magnesium and potassium to nourish the skin. Papain, an extract within papaya, also possesses anti inflammatory properties to help reduce redness and puffiness.

Pineapple extract - contains Vitamin B to improve the skin barrier function and reduce redness and irritation.

Avocado oil - moisturising and nourishing, it's a rich emollient with superior skin penetration and valuable vitamins, proteins and fatty acids.

Jojoba oil - similar to avocado oil, it is a very moisturising emollient which helps restore the skin's regular pH levels and is excellent at soothing inflamed skin.

V-Day Nails 2016!

Happy V-Day, lovelies!

How did/ are you going to celebrate?

I decided to celebrate by doing some themed nails! Here's what I came up with. I used Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Pink Tank for my base, then stamped on top with Konad black, before adding a few gold studs as a finishing touch!

There you go, lovelies! My simple Valentine's Day nails. I'd love to know what you think, and let me know if you've done any V-day looks/nails, I'd love to see! 

Much love,

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Review & Swatches!

Hi lovelies!

How's your week off to so far?

I must say that mine has been going quite well, because I've been busy playing road-testing all the new release lippies that Maybelline launched this month! You can read my review of the Color Blur Matte Pencils here, if you missed it earlier. As much as I loved those pencils, I have to say that the new Color Sensational Creamy Mattes had my heart beating just that tiny bit faster!

I have a love-hate relationship with matte lipsticks, because as much as I love the way they look on the lips and how long-lasting most mattes are, I hate how dry they can feel. As a result, I couldn't wait to see if these really lived up to the 'creamy' promise! Let's take a look, shall we?

Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte lipsticks.
I received three of the lipsticks in my little care package, but I believe there's a total of eight shades that will be available here. The colours I got were:

655 Daringly Nude - soft brown nude
670 Ravishing Rose - blue based pink
680 Mesmerizing Magenta - bright berry pink

January 2016 Lust Have It Review!

Hi lovelies!

It's been some time since I've been able to share a LHI review, what with being away and everything, so I'm actually happy to be getting back to it! It's quite the little treat to have a mystery bag of beauty goodies arriving every month, and I've fallen in love with some new favourites this way.

The January box arrived in a pretty pink mesh travel bag, as always. Here's what I received:

UNANI Micellar Water (full sized)

HIKARI lip crayon in Amour (full sized)

HIKARI blush in Sunkissed (full sized)

SKINYOGA Almond Orange face scrub (deluxe sample)

SKINYOGA Sandalwood Saffron face mask (deluxe sample)

There was also an ORCHID from Paradise Cherry Blossom hand cream, which was supposed to have been in the December box but was sent in this box instead.

Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment Review!

Hi lovelies,

As some of you may know, I'm part of the BeautyDirectory Expert Panel of Bloggers, and I am occasionally fortunate enough to trial products as part of my involvement. The latest product was the revamped Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment, which I was excited about as I adore all things nails! This treatment is enriched with avocado oil, sea salt, pomegranate extract and calcium, to protect and nourish nails.

Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 Nail Treatment.

 My nails are pretty healthy, as you can see here, but I occasionally experience splitting/breakage. The Sally Hansen 7-in-1 treatment sounds impressive because it presents the solution to dryness, dullness, ridges, breakage and peeling (or all of them)! It vows to restore dry, brittle nails, making them brighter, shinier, stronger, more moisturised and fills in ridges, with visible differences after just three days of use. Best of all, it can be used as a base coat and top coat with your choice of polish, though you can, of course, just choose to wear it on naked nails. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
