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.

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Styling Range


Hello there!

Posts have been a little thin on the ground recently so big apologies for not being able to keep up. We've both had so much on the last few weeks/months, if you don't follow us on social media you should as you can see what we have been getting up to more easily but we will hopefully catch up with things and get more time soon!

Today's review is of some hair styling products from the Awapuhi Wild Ginger range from Paul Mitchell.

If you're a long term reader you will know we are part of the Styling Society so these products were gifted to us, but after using them the last few weeks I wanted to share my thoughts on them. As always they are honest and not influenced by the fact these were given to me.

Lacura Charcoal Mud to Foam Cleanser


Hi all!

As you all know we're huge skincare fans and even bigger bargain fans. So finding the limited edition skincare in Aldi when it comes around is pretty high on my list.

Charcoal is having a bit of a moment and I don't see it going anywhere any time soon. As soon as I saw the charcoal products on offer I couldn't resist but try them out, even though I haven't really been convinced about them so far...

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 : The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Hair Scrub Review


Hey All

When I first saw that The Body Shop was selling a hair scrub I knew I had to have it. I love The Body Shop Banana Shampoo and Conditioner and have raved about that here.

Pixi Glow Tonic Review


Skincare is one of my favourite topics, I always loved it when Caroline Hirons says:

If you would spend more on shoes, handbags, lipstick, jeans or fashion in general than you would on high quality skincare – you will be a sixty year old woman (and man) with a vintage wardrobe and a face like an alligator

And I absolutely agree. Ever since reading this way back when it was first published in 2012 I've been putting skincare at the top of my list but sadly my budget isn't the same (nor do we get the same PR packages!) as Caroline so it's taken me a little longer to get round to trying everything she recommends. The Pixi Glow Tonic has been on my list for such a long time,

The Body Shop Vitamin C Range


If you know anything about us you'll know we're skincare addicts - we've been huge fans of the Body Shop and love their products as well as everything they stand for.

A few months ago I decided to try a few things from a different range. I've heard lots of things about the Vitamin C range from various friends and bloggers including Caroline Hirons so I obviously picked up a few things on one of their offers!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation Review

Looking for a new foundation can be difficult, do you agree?

Finding one that fits my criteria can be a chore. It has the right consistency, the right finish, is buildable, lasts at least 12 hours and has the perfect skin colour in the range. I like buying new foundations when they turn out right, but otherwise it feels like such a waste of money especially when you don't have it to waste.

Spending £20+ on something that turns out to be rubbish is not for me, but I couldn't resist trying Too Faced's Born This Way foundation. It has some great reviews and some friends recommended it too, so I thought it might be a good one to try next.

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.

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.

Easy Ways to Switch to an Eco Friendly Cruelty Free Home

Hey All

So you'll have heard us mention many times on the blog now that I'm totally cruelty free in all I use and L is moving that way too. I initally started with make up and it took me a while to even think about all the products in the home and find suitable alternatives for these too!

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?!

Review: The Body Shop Drops of Youth - Youth Essence Lotion


If you're a long term reader you will know how much we absolutely love The Body Shop Drops of Youth Range.

We've previously written about the range in general here and also the Youth Liquid Peel. Recently I saw the Youth Essence Lotion and couldn't resist picking it up in the recent winter deals.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil


Hello everyone!

It has been a super busy few weeks for the both of us so unfortunately we've been lacking in new posts. But life happens and we've been battling illness, new houses, crazy work schedules and general Christmas festivities...

But were hoping December is going to be the best month yet! 

I've mentioned a few times about the issues with my skin and with the colder weather, indoor heating and the flu my skin has been so dry and I've been looking at some new products to see if I can find anything to help. My first port of call was The Body Shop!
