When the lovely Fliss at Fresh Naturals got in touch to offer me a couple of her sample products, I thought she was going to send just that. One, maybe two things. Instead she sent a whole array and I’ve been spending the last six weeks trying everything out. And I still have loads left!
If you read my Big Blogger Expo post, you’ll have seen me mention that I won one of the raffle prizes; a Heaven Skincare set from Deborah Mitchell. I also said I’d share exactly what I’d won in a post. So here it is!
So I’m a little bit beyond excited about being able to write this post. I’ve been trying to get my hands on the Solstice palette for ages but it’s been out of stock in all my local Boots and Superdrug stores every single time. Booo; not cool guys! And yeah, I know I could be a normal person and just buy the palette online, but I love going into a shop, getting to look at them all and choosing the one that doesn’t have grubby finger marks all over it. Plus there’s the added bonus of not having to pay any p&p and being able to take it home and try it out there and then!
I get really dry hands and usually have cracked skin around my nails, yeah I know, that’s so sexy, right? :/ I’ve tried so many hand creams and have either found them to be too greasy or have too much of a smell.
I even stumbled upon a secret bathroom at work where they have a plethora of hand lotions and creams (I’m not kidding, there are about 10+ different bottles in there!) but none of them were doing it for me. They were either way too greasy or smelt weird; chocolate and orange was nice though.
So unless you’re Tim Peake and have been in space for the last six months, you’ll probably know that earlier this year, Makeup Revolution joined forces with Jane (aka British Beauty Blogger) and created the Fortune Favours the Brave palette.
Back in March I was invited to The Body Shop in Brighton to help celebrate their 40th birthday! I came away with a lovely goody bag; including their two foundation shade adjusting drops! I’d been dying to test them out ever since I’d seen them but hadn’t quite got around to buying them!
Back in February, I bought this contour kit from Collection but I only tried it once and then shoved it in my make-up drawer to gather dust. I decided I couldn’t get on with it and that I’d never learn how to use it properly; especially as I was using a blusher brush because I didn’t actually own a contour brush. Yeah, I know right? What kind of beauty blogger am I??
Honestly, sometimes I feel like I’m in one of those anonymous meetings; Hi, I’m Holly, I’m 31 and I absolutely love a lot of the Zoella beauty products. There; I’ve said it.
I’ve never done one of these before; mostly because at the end of the month, I never seem to have any empty products. Until now!
A couple of months ago I went to my first Brighton blog meet and in my goody bag were two samples of Mintycoco; the coconut oil-pulling formula with peppermint which is for “leaving your mouth feeling fresh, your teeth looking whiter and your gums healthy.” I decided to give it a go….
