Beauty: Antipodes Lipstick in West Coast Sunset

Hey All

If you've followed us for a while you'll know L and I are both big Antipodes fan, their skincare is some of my favourite and I usually use at least one item a day, I'm currently hooked on the Manuka Honey Eye Cream (you can see all of our Antipodes reviews here)

So when some of my friends gave me a lipstick last year I couldn't wait to try it, in true blogger fashion I kept it in a box until I had photographed it and forgot about it until a few weeks ago and the weather brightened up. What I love about make up gifts from other people is you can discover new things you wouldn't have tried.

Beauty: Make up Revolution Newtrals 2 Palette

Hey All

Long time no post, L and I have lots going on at the moment but hopefully we'll be back to posting regularly soon. 

Today I wanted to share my new favourite palette, if you're a long term reader you'll know I had a big love for Mac Cranberry eyeshadow which I lost after I'd gone cruelty free and I've been looking for a dupe ever since and Make up Revolution pulled this beauty of a palette out of the bag.

Marula Oil Light Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Hey all

Sorry so long for a post, L and I have both been super busy with L having her bathroom done and I'm six weeks into a massive change in my house which essentially leaves me living in a building site regularly trying to do work on the house and sometimes left without electric etc!



Anyway today's post is a review I've been wanted to share for weeks, the new Marula Oil Light range (we first shared the original range here which we both loved and shared the styling range here, the hairspray has been a total game changer for us both!) The Marula Oil range is so good at leaving my hair feeling in such good condition.

Beauty: Barry M Flawless Original Primer

Hey All

This is a post I've been meaning to share for a while now, I bought this a while ago when I was hunting out other products for a 3 for 2 deal and knew Barry M was cruelty free but apart from their liquid liner and nail varnishes I haven't tried many products.

Paul Mitchell have absolutely smashed it out again this year, last year they had the amazing Rose Gold collection which we reviewed here, L and I both still use this on a weekly basis and have ditched our other curlers!

This year they've bought out the Modern Marble collection and it's absolutely beautiful.

Top Cruelty Free Glycolic Acid Peel Results

Hey All

As you know, we love skincare and trying anything to help with ageing. We've been loving trying out the Bravura range which we were lucky enough to be sent to try. You can see the other products we've already reviewed here.

We couldn't wait to try the Bravura Glycolic Acid 10%. We've had great results from chemical peels in the past and had been looking for more which was how we originally came to find Bravura. Chemical peels sound and can be scary but by using 10% it's a safer way for people to use at home and get the great benefits of a chemical peel.

Beauty: NYX Vinyl Matte Liner in Black Noir and Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Fire

Hey all

I love liquid liner and finding a great one always takes time, I finally found the one I love so I thought I'd share it with you.

I first grabbed the Nyx Vinyl Liquid Liner a while ago as I loved how fine the tip was on it and it was really easy to apply, since then I've grabbed the matte and the amazing vivid fire shade.

Beauty: W7 Absolute Lashes Mascara

Hey All

Since going cruelty free I've been needing to find alternatives for some of my favourite non cruelty free products. I've always been a big fan of Benefit They're Real (and many of they're other products) and not being able to repurchase is a shame but I've actually started to find some good alternatives.

Beauty : The Body Shop Matte Clay Foundation Review

Hey All

A few months ago whilst shopping with my brother we popped into The Body Shop and I couldn't resist grabbing they're new matte clay foundation. For my oily/combination skin it seemed like the perfect foundation for me and there was a great range of colours and even though I'm pretty pale I wasn't the lightest shade.

Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette

Good morning!

I'm sure you've probably read a few posts on the fabulous Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes by now but I'd still like to add my own thoughts to the mix.

I bought the Modern Renaissance palette with some money I had pre Christmas and couldn't wait to share. The colours are perfect for this time of year so it was the best time to treat myself.....right?!

Beauty Review - Make up Revolution Brow Pomade in Caramel Brown

Hey All

I've not been buying much make up lately, my stash is huge so I've been trying to work through it but when Tam Beauty had a sale a few months back I couldn't resist getting a few bits.

I love brow products and especially the brow pomade type textures so when I saw the Revolution Brow Pomade reduced I snapped it up. The Caramel Brown is probably a touch darker than I'd normally go but it still works.

Bravura London Skincare: First Cleanse Oil


Hey All

We're huge skincare fans and have been eyeing up acid peels for a while ever since we tried a Glycolic one ages ago. We have been looking at Bravura for a while so when we were offered some of the range to try out we jumped at the chance. We thought we'd share our thoughts on the First Cleanse Oil first and work our way through the range as if we did it all in one post you'd be here reading our love for a while!

Laguna Health Spa - ESPA Optimal Skin Profacial Treatment



Hey all!

I'm sure you've seen M's post on her amazing ESPA Body Wrap so I'd like to share with you my thoughts on the ESPA Optimal Skin Profacial Treatment that I had when I visited the Laguna Health Club.

We both love a good spa treatment and knowing the new treatments at Laguna used cruelty free products from ESPA we were looking forward to visiting again.

Laguna Health and Spa - Espa Body Wrap Review

Hey All

Laguna Health and Spa have recently switched salon brands to Espa and as it's cruelty free I was pretty excited to hear this! We were lucky enough to be offered to try out some of the treatments so couldn't wait to test them out.

Laguna Health and Spa is located in the Park Plaza Hotel in Cardiff and has a beautiful swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi, as well as a great gym (which used to be my gym and I really miss those classes!)

How to Pack Beauty Products with Airline Limits - Cruelty Free

Hey All

Twice this year I've traveled to Edinburgh from Cardiff and flown, the biggest challenge I find is getting all the products I want whilst sticking to the 10 x 100ml airline limits. Of course as with all of my posts all these travel products I use are cruelty free too!

Kenra Platinum Hair Styling Products

Hey All

A few weeks ago L shared her thought on the Kenra Professional Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner (post here), we were lucky enough to get sent the range to try out and got a few different bits to each other in our boxes, so today we thought we'd share our thoughts on the styling range we've been testing out, we've been trying a few from the professional range including the root lifting spray and the volume spray and a few from the Kenra Platinum range including the silkening mist, revive oil and our absolute favourite the blow dry spray!

Kenra is a brand that is relatively new to the UK, they have some amazing colour ranges (I'm always loving all the brights and pastels on their instagram!) and some great styling products.

Skinny Tan Body Glow Everyday Tan


Who doesn't love a golden glow??

I recently went on my first holiday in YEARS and finally got some real sun on my skin. It was lush and I loved having a bit of a natural glow, but as we all know this never lasts long when you get back to the grey skies of the UK.

Since I've been back I didn't want to use a full on fake tan product as I didn't need it and well, let's be honest it is now October and looking super tanned might be a bit odd for someone in Wales!

So I've been testing out the Body Glow Everyday Tan from Skinny Tan to see what it was like.

The Body Shop Banana Shampoo and Conditioner

Hey all

I've been meaning to write this post for a while now. Whilst wondering past The Body Shop store in Cardiff a few months back I saw an offer where if you bought a shampoo you got the conditioner free, I hadn't actually tried any hair products from The Body Shop so decided to test them out (I have the hair scrub now too which I can't wait to try!)

Since going Cruelty Free I've almost rediscovered The Body Shop as a brand and I'm totally in love with so many products, and obviously I've convinced L too (you can find all of our reviews on The Body Shop Here and Here)

Kat Von D's Lock It Foundation and Concealer


Well hello there!

I've been meaning to share this review for a little while now but life has been so busy! After my trip to Croatia I've been travelling with work and will be away for the next few weeks, hopefully I will be able to keep up with everything.

I picked up the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation and Concealer at their opening event of the Cardiff stand in Debenhams a few weeks back (post here of the counter and the make up looks!)
