GiGi Hair Removal Cream

I am sure most of you dark haired ladies out there know what a complete pain in the bum the Ladystache is! I had been using Jolene facial hair bleach until I went to New York and forgot to take it with me so, I had to go a locate a product.
I took a trip to the local Sally’s and picked up GiGi Hair Removal Cream after a recommendation. What I love about this pack is the calming balm that it comes with. Anyone that has used hair removal cream before know that it can temporarily leave your skin irritated and red but with the calming cream it really helps prevent that.

I highly recommend this product and you can get it in Sally’s in the UK for £7.90 pricey compared to what I paid but, its not too bad for a product which does what it says on the box.


Budget Skin Care

A little while ago I ran out of my St Ives and Dermalogica skin care and due to the lack of funds at that particular moment I needed to find myself some cheap bits. Unlike most people I have to keep with my routine because I have very dry skin and just one day without moisturiser causes my skin to get very flaky and sensitive.
I popped along to good old Superdrug and picked up an Exfoliating Scrub, Moisturising Day Cream and some Skin Oil which all come from the Vitamin E range.
Budget Skin Care
The scrub tided me over until I was able to get some more or my regular St Ives Apricot Scrub. The scrub smells divine however there was just not enough exfoliating beads for me. I had major problems removing all of the dryness due to the lack of beads and found that because of that I was exfoliating far more than I would normally.
This cream is thick and luxurious and the smell again is amazing. This cream has now replaced my £14 tube of dermalogica because it really does do the job. The cream doesn’t cause my skin to flare up with eczema and that for me is a huge bonus.
Finally The Skin Oil – £2.99
I was a bit concerned with the oil because I didnt want to replace my dry skin with spots but I was happily suprised. I use this product at night around my nose and on my cheeks and anywhere else that happens to be dry and in the morning my skin feels as soft as a baby’s bum. I only use a few drops and thus far I havent had any issues with spots.

Over the years I have tried a lot of shop own brand products and this range so far has been the best. I plan on trying some of the other items from the range in the future.

Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow!

Hello Flawless
As a MUA I love the natural no make-up make-up look so when I stumbled across Benefit’s Hello Flawless earlier I was quite interested in it.
What Benefit say about this product: Hello…it’s flawless time! Our new oil-free brightening liquid foundation builds from light to medium coverage for a natural complexion you can believe in. It’s you…just more luminous & healthy looking.
I plan on grabbing myself a bottle of this to see if it does actually do what it says on the box and that the shade is correct.
I have always really liked the benefit blush collection and some of their mascara’s but I have always found that the foundations were far to orange, hopefully this will be an exception, so, expect a review on this bad boy as soon as I can get my hands on it 🙂

Two Year Transformation!

I was speaking to the lovely Get Lippie and Lipglossiping on Twitter yesterday about where I have been and how when myself and Lipglossiping spoke last we were both losing weight.

The conversation made me want to show the world how I have gone from a nearly 20st brunette to a 14st4lbs red head.
