Can the Boots Glow Skincare Range Give Me Affordable Dewy Skin?

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you for this week’s beauty post with an exciting skincare review of the new Boots Glow Skincare Range! If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that my favourite thing ever is having dewy, healthy-looking skin, and I often turn to the Superdrug Naturally Radiant range that I posted about ages ago to give me that look.

However, and I feel like nobody ever really talks about this phenomenon(?), sometimes my skin goes off products and decides it doesn’t like something that worked really well for ages (let me know in the comments if you can relate), so I felt like I had to try something new. When I saw that Boots were coming out with their own dewy skincare range with such cute, pink packaging and such affordable prices at £4 a pop, I just had to give it a go. I ended up buying everything bar the toner (because I currently have 2 on the go), so keep reading to find out how I got on, and whether I found an alternative to my beloved Naturally Radiant!

L’Oréal & Nyx Superdrug Haul!

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you this week with a classic haul (because I cannot resist a bargain in any form), featuring products from Nyx and L’Oréal. I got an email from Superdrug saying that they had their 3 for 2 on and I jumped straight in there to replace my primer, everyday foundation and mascara as they were all running out. I also ended up piggybacking on my mum’s 3 for 2 to get a brow product too – so it’s safe to say I’ve milked the offer for all it’s worth. I ended up getting the Nyx High Glass Primer and their Born to Glow Foundation, as well as the Volume Million Feline Lashes Mascara and Micro Brow Tattoo Pen by L’Oréal; these are all products I’ve never tried before – so keep reading to check out my first impressions!

Huda Beauty Tantour in Fair – Is it Worth Your Coin? | ep3

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you this week with my long-awaited review of the Huda Beauty Tantour in Fair! as part of my new series where I tell you whether an expensive, trendy or over-hyped product is…worth your coin!

I hadn’t really been contouring for a while until quite recently, when I rediscovered my Sleek Contour kit (if you know, you know) from back in the early youtube beauty guru days when I reviewed it. After my blast from the past, I really wanted to get back into contouring, so when I saw this product on depop (check out my depop makeup post for the whole process etc), I just had to have it. The product normally retails for £26 and incorporates contouring with one of my favourite bits of makeup, (bronzing), and is a holy grail product for a lot of people I know, so keep reading to find out whether it lives up to the hype!

(Check out the previous post in this series where I bought makeup from depop!) In today’s post, which has taken me a bizarre amount of time to proofread and upload (sorry guys), I’ll be giving you my honest review of the Juno & Co Microfibre Velvet Sponge – a sponge raved about by every influencer, their mum and their dog. I needed a new beauty sponge and I thought that this one looked intriguing; I just had to see what the hype was all about, so keep reading to find out whether this overly-sponsored sponge is worth your coin!

Delving into Depop Makeup – Is it Worth your Coin? | ep1

Hey everyone, I’m coming at you today with something a little bit different; if you follow me on social media, you’ll have seen me mention the idea on my insta stories a while ago of doing a depop makeup haul! I needed some replacements and I’ve been loving trawling through depop looking for clothes and stuff lately so I thought: why not make the move to makeup to see if the deals on high end favs are really worth it?

The haul is a little smaller and later than I initially expected due to the well-known highs and lows of depop sellers; I’ll explain the whole process, my experiences and how long it took etc etc as we go along, so keep reading to find out all about it, and to see whether buying makeup on depop is really worth your coin!
