*Glo with Bondi Sands...

"Let Your Soul Glow..." 

I have always been quite on the fence when it comes to highlighter. I definitely think that it can help to finish off a make up look but, I do think that it should match or enhance the natural glow of your skin unlike some iridescent purple and green highlighters I've seen! I have also been more of a fan of cream and liquid highlighters as I feel they blend well and throughout the day they melt into the skin. I have been testing out Bondi Sands' Glo in the shade 'Gold Lights' for well over a month now and if you would like to hear what I have to say, then please continue scrolling...

Gold Lights is one of three highlights released by well-known self tanning brand 'Bondi Sands' this summer. Like most new products I try out, I tend to rip open the packaging and swatch them on the back of my hand however, I was quite surprised. For some reason, I thought this was going to be extremely glittery but, it was actually quite a disappointing swatch at first because it blending in really well and was quite subtle. Wait, was this actually the type of highlighter that I love?! The magic happened the moment I dabbed a small amount onto the tops of my cheek bones. This highlight blends like a dream and it is extremely buildable for those of you who like a bit more of an obvious glow. It's not at all glittery and can be worn everyday which I love. As I said, I prefer cream or liquid highlighters as I use a lot of cream and liquid products in my base make up and I like it all to blend seamlessly and melt into one another. The formula is very thin and non-sticky so I can tell a lot of thought has gone into the making of this product. Bondi Sands have really researched what their audience want in a highlighter and have adapted the three shades to suit a range of skin tones and have created a product that can be worn every day for their customer who likes a bronzed, glowy look and for the same customer who likes building up that product for a special occasion. You really only need a small amount to highlight the main points of your face and it can also be used to highlight your body which, would also be great for those special occasions or perhaps on holiday. Not only can this product be used individually but it can also be mixed in with your primer or foundation to add a full face glow.
Overall, I am super pleased with this highlight and have applied it most days since I've received it. As I have mentioned, it does melt into the skin but, I can still notice it at the end of the day so it does have good staying power!

This product is available in three different shades and you can purchase it for £10.99 from Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets. I'd definitely suggest not just swatching it and testing it on the back of your hand as this product transforms when it is on the face and really helps to illuminate the skin and give you a natural glow.
(Here is a still from a video that I tried to upload. It shows how natural the glow is!)
I hope that this review was informative, please let me know if you go out and purchase the product. I'd love to hear your thoughts too!

Much love,

*Gifted item. This product was kindly gifted to me by Bondi Sands but all opinions are 100% honest and my own.

High Street to High End Fragrances...

"Perfume is personal magic. It is a first impression and a lasting recollection..."

I absolutely love fragrance and I wear it every single day. I enjoy buying perfume for myself and I love it when friends and family buy me perfume as it allows me to wear a scent I may not have bought for myself. In this post I have selected fragrance from my own collection that ranges from £9.99 high street prices all the way up to £255. I love fresh, floral fragrances so if this is something you'd be interested in then please carry on scrolling...

*The One To Watch feat Cluse...

"There is beauty in simplicity..."

My most favourite jewellery piece has always been a watch. I love how they add personality to an outfit and when Cluse got in touch with me I was thrilled to collaborate with them as I'd followed them on Instagram and always lusted after their pieces. They kindly gifted me two items which I chose and I like to think they complement one another well. They also go really well with my style and jewellery pieces I already own.

My Brow Routine...

"Good Brows. Good Mood. Good Day..."

Before you read this post please note that my brows are definitely far from perfect! They are very uneven, patchy and perhaps not everyone's 'Brow Goals' however, if like me, you grew up in an era (early 00's) where you started tweezing your brows yourself at the age of 11 even though your Mum told you not to and made them look like tadpoles then you may find this post to be quite useful! I share my tips on how I fill them in and what I use to help hairs grow back.

*Magnitone Soft Touch Silicone Cleansing Brush Review...

"Skin First, Make Up Second..."

A few months ago I was kindly gifted this pink Magnitone XOXO Micro-Sonic Silicone cleansing brush. I have been using this daily now for almost three months and I can really notice a difference in the texture and appearance of my skin. I have quite sensitive skin and previous to this brush I was actually using (and loving) Magnitone's original cleansing brush. What makes this XOXO brush different to the original is that it is naturally antibacterial and it is so soft so it is fantastic for sensitive skin.
