A Bit Of What's To Come...

L'Oreal Infallible Lasting Perfecting Foundation
If you follow me on Twitter you would have seen how excited I was about Superdrug's 3 for 2 deal on makeup and lashes. I decided to buy a new foundation as my last one was getting a little too dark and orangey for my pale, pale complexion! Expect a review soon to see what I think.

MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette
Finally I've managed to get my hands on MUA's Undressed Palette! I've been wanting to get this eyeshadow palette for months but found that it was out of stock everywhere I went (I don't like buying makeup online). I haven't used it yet but I'm really excited to try out all the shades.

Naturelle Aura Cherry Almond Revitalising Conditioner
It wouldn't surprise me is you've never heard of this brand because I certainly haven't. I was given this conditioner by a friend who loves the smell, and I have to say, she was right because it smells de-lish! It's also all natural ingredients and not tested on animals (my friend is really big on this). I really look forward to trying this out as I'm currently using the Aussie Conditioner.

V05 Smoothly Does It Frizz Free Cream with Heat Defence
Again, if you follow me on Twitter you would have seen my excitement about getting this as a freebie in the current Cosmopolitan magazine. I've used it a couple of times and really look forward to writing a review!

Aussie Miracle Moist Conditioner
I've heard so many good things about the Aussie haircare range from friends and fellow bloggers. I decided to get the travel size bottle so I could try it out, so I didn't have to worry about buying the full size and then hating it. Thankfully I love this product and will most definitely be buy the full size after using the Naturelle Aura Conditioner.

Simple Kind To Skin Vital Vitamin Night Cream
Now, I've done enough posts on here raving out the Simple skincare range so this won't come as a surprise to many of you when you see that I've bought their night cream. This is my first ever night cream and I am looking so forward to reviewing this product for all of you.

Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express
Mascaras are one of them things that I buy even when my latest tube is used up. I have around a million and one different mascaras and will be comparing them all in a review post some time this

Toni&Guy Smoothing Detangler 30 Second Review

My hair always gets knotty in the colder months so I purchased this Toni&Guy Detangling serum. Its described as helping tame frizz and flyaways for smoother, more managable hair. This product isnt a cream, or a water or anything that I could describe sensibly. It's like a liquid gel. weird.
Anyway, I apply a small amount to my wet hair and comb it through my hair with my fingers. It definitely makes it easier for me to comb through my hair and my hair does look lovely once it's dry. Im going to use this product a little more to decide whether its going to be something that im going to repurchase it.

Do you use any detangling sprays? What ones?

Simple Spotless Skin Range Review

If you follow my blog then you will know that I love the Simple range! I featured the Simple Spotless Skin Anti-Blemish moisturiser in my October Favourites and I promised a product review along with the Simple Spotless Skin Quick Fix Cleansing Wipes. I bought these products on a whim at my local Superdrug. I had some pennies to spare and I must admit, I love trying new skin care products. I bought the moisturiser because the cold air has well and truly creeped in and it's always a sensible idea to get a moisturiser for the A/W months. I decided to get the wipes because I've used the regular Simple Cleansing Wipes for years and thought that if these wipes would truly make my skin 'Spotless' then why not give them a try. They contain Zinc and Chamomile and are advertised as having 2-4 spot fighting ingredients and 1 natural antibacterial ingredient along with their usual no perfumes or colours.

The Wipes
When I first opened the Cleansing Wipes I noticed that they have quite a strong smell which surprised me because the Simple brand have always said that they use no perfumes so I just put it down to being a natural perfume from the spot fighting ingredients. Sadly, I don't think these wipes helped with my skin at all, if anything they made it worse. I know that you have to give new skin care products enough time to work, as you skin has to get used to the new ingredients in the products but I've been using these wipes for a month and I haven't seen any benefits. I don't think I would repurchase these, I'll stick my good old regular Simple wipes. On a plus, I always found that the wipes never dried out as long as I kept the lid closed fully.

The Moisturiser
Although the wipes didn't work out for me, I love this moisturiser. It hasn't got any harsh smell and leaves my skin feeling super smooth. I apply it before I got to sleep and in the morning before applying my make up. My only grievance is that it takes a while to soak into my skin in the mornings which can be time consuming when I'm in a rush. Although I love this cream, I don't think I will be repurchasing this either just because I love buying and trying new moisturisers.

Now that I've used up all my wipes I'm going to continue using the moisturiser on its own to see if it works as an anti-blemish moisturiser. I will do an update post on this moisturiser at the end of the month to let you all know.

October Favourites

Mua Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette - £4
This palette from Mua has made it into my October favourites because I am just totally and completely in love with it. If you haven't heard all the hype of Mua's eyeshadow palette's then you must be living under some big, dark, heavy rock because they are all anyone in the beauty blogging scene is talking about. I originally wanted to get the Undressed palette but couldn't find it in any of my local Superdrug's, so I got the Heaven and Earth palette instead. I would really recommend Mua's products to anyone. The quality is amazing and the price is cheap cheap cheap!
Simple Spotless Skin Anti-blemish Moisturiser - £3
Usually I'm quite sceptical about buying "spot curing" products because I usually find that they don't work at all! I decided to pick up this moisturiser because I am a great lover of the Simple line and at £3 I wasn't wasting loads of money on something that might not work. I will be reviewing this product along with the Anti-blemish Cleansing Wipes soon so keep your eyes peeled.
Sleek Makeup True Colour Lipstick in Cherry - £4.99
I recently did a post called My Lipsticks of the Moment which featured this lipstick so check that out to see why it's made it into my October favourites!
Garnier Moisturising Lotion Sun-Kissed Look in Light - £5.09
I don't know about the rest of you pale girls but I am tired of standing next to my tanned friends looking like a ghost (even though it's been totally appropriate in October as its the month of Halloween). I decided to get a gradual tanner to build up a healthy tan that wasn't as drastic as a fake tan. This lotion works really well and smells delicious with extract of apricot. It doesn't leave me looking orange or streaky which is perfect.
