Benefit Roller Lash Mascara | Review

Hey everyone! So today I have a review of the Benefit Roller Lash, I was wanting to try this for so long and I finally bought it in Duty Free when I went on holiday and it's my new favourite!

It's hard for me to find a mascara because I have really sensitive eyes but this doesn't irritate them at all! It leaves my lashes looking longer, my eyes looking wider and it stays put all day. It doesn't clump at all which I know my last mascaras have all done. The unique brush has tiny bristles on one side and is curved (which I'm not usually a fan of but in this case I am) It's also really easy to remove (unlike Benefits They're Real mascara) Also, the packaging is so cute!

The first day I wore this I got so many compliments on my eyes!

I highly recommend this mascara! I know that this mascara isn't cheap but if you pop to a benefit counter you can ask for a sample!

Thankyou for reading, leave your views on this mascara down below!

Avon Clear Skin Products Review

Recently I've seen loads of people rave about the products from Avon so I thought I'd have a quick look to see what all the hype was about. I went straight to the skin care section as I'd ran out of all my skin products and was surprised at the amount of products they had! Avon have a line called 'Clear Skin' which includes masks, scrubs and creams. Turns out that at that time there was a sale on of about 40% (it might still be on) so I got 4 products for £12.30!

First off I tried the Blackhead Eliminating Deep Treatment Mask (£2.10) 

You apply a thin layer to your face and leave it for 5/10 minutes until it turns white. My favourite thing about this mask is how easy it is to take off! One rinse and it was off! I have oily spot prone skin and this left my skin soft and not red which is what usually happens however I did dry out my skin, even after mouisterising but after seeing the difference instantly with the blackheads on my chin and nose id say it's worth it! 

Next I got the Daily Correcting Lotion (£4.20) I use this twice a day; in the morning and evening; I apply it on my spots and blemishes before moisterising. 

This product is great is its not oily which is fab because I have oily, spot prone skin. It doesn't dry my skin and leaves it not feeling greasy; Also minimises my outbreaks! A little bit goes a long way so will last for ages and is a great value for money!

I also got the Emergency instant spot treatment (£2.70) which again I apply morning and evening after moisterising. 

This gel is really gentle and doesn't sting like other spot treatments. I applied this onto a few of my spots and the next morning they had shrunk down to tiny pimples, after I few more uses they were completly gone! You only have to apply a tiny amount for it to work so it'll last for ages! This is by far the most effective spot treatment I've used! 

Finally I got the Professional Deep PoreCleansing  scrub (£3.30) 

Due to my skin being really sensitive I don't use a scrub as often (once a week) I've only used this product once but I was very pleased! I applied the scrub and left it on my face for a couple of minutes before gently massaging it off. It leaves my skin feeling so clean and fresh! It did leave my skin slightly dry but after moisterising it was fine. 

I 100% recommend all these products! I'll also be trying some of the other clear skin products as these have worked so well! In the past week my skin has cleared so much and even others have been noticing!

Comment below your favourite Avon skin/makeup product as I want to try out a few others!

Also comment any blog posts you'd like to see in the future! Thankyou for reading

My January Beauty Favourites

Hey guys! I can't believe January is over already; It went to fast it's kinda scary!

Anyway, I'm here with my beauty/skin care favourites from January

First off my real techniques buffing brush, I use this everyday to apply my foundation and it just leaves it looking smooth and non streaky (I did a full review of them on a past blog post, go check that out!)

Secondly, is a very recent purchase but again I use it everyday and it's the Miss Sporty Ohh! Tan So Fine Bronzing Powder in 001 I am blonde and fabulous. When mixing both the powders together it leaves such a natural look! It lasts all day and was only £2.99, best bronzer I've tried! (It looks more orange in the photo but it's not!)

Next is my favourite lip product of the month and it's something that I've been purchasing for ages now and nearly everyone has one but I ventured out to get a tinted one and im in love with it! It's the Maybelline New York Baby Lips in Cherry Me (£2.99) It's so moisterising and leaves a purplish tint all day! It tastes fab, smells amazing and the thanks to the packaging it looks so cute stood on your dressing table!

Favourite mascara is actually a freebie I got given but I will defiantly be buying the full size one! It's the No7 Lash Impacf Intense Volume Control mascara. I have really sensitive eyes so finding a mascara that doesn't irritate them is hard which is why I was stuck with the same mascara for ages, until I got given this! I lengthens my eye lashes and I can't even feel that I'm wearing any! Also the packaging is so cute!

The next products are body and skin care. 

First off is the Maybelline Colour Show Nail Polish in 301 Love this Sweater. This is a nude colour which I bought for school. It was only £2.99 and is surprisingly good (I didn't know what to expect as I mainly go for Barry M) It didn't start chipping till about day 3 of wearing it which for me was normal. Another positive was that it was so easy to remove! Used one cotton pad on all of my nails where usually it's 2/3. 

Next are skin products. First is a spot treatment from the clear skin range at Avon. It's amazing value for money and just a little dab gets rid of my spots in just a few days (I did a full review on it in my last blog post!) 

Finally is a product I've had for ages but is still in my top favourites! It's the Garnier Soothing Vitamin-enriched Toner (£2.99 - it's on offer right now I'm superdrug for £1.99!) I use this every night, after removing my makeup with my simple cleanser I then go back over my face with this and remove my eye makeup with this. You'd be surprised how much makeup this picks up even after using makeup remover! It leaves my skin feeling so clean and soft! I tiny bit goes a long way which explains why I still have half a bottle left after using it everyday for around 5 months!

So they're my January beauty favourites!
