Hi guys, 14 people have followed on .com and you will not get my posts by following here any more unless you followed before this week! You need to subscribe by email or on Bloglovin, Facebook, Twitter or She Said Beauty. Thank you! Xxxx
Please don’t follow in the wordpress.com site. We’ve moved to nakedbeautyblog.com. If you were already a follower before 11pm on 10th September 2013 you will still get my posts as you have been moved over. Otherwise, you will not unless you subscribe on the new blog via email or bloglovin’ or add my URL to your reader. Thank you
So I’ve just moved to wordpress.org though I’m posting on my wordpress.com one now. I have a request in at .com for now to move my current subscribers over but I have a few questions so if anyone has made the move and can help I’d be most grateful!
I’d be so grateful for some advice from those who have made the move! Thank you in advance!
To enable us to be bigger and better we’ve had to move. WordPress.com is very limited when you are trying to grow a blog into a business (eventually) and we felt it was time we shipped over to wordpress.org! Please bare with us while we move all you lovely followers over, if you like you can head over and follow us while you are waiting! We can now be found at nakedbeautyblog.com.
I hope you’ll all still support us in this move and enjoy the posts!
The most astonishing hand cream ever? You Decide!
This is the question posed on the packaging of the Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream, right at the top. Who can not accept that challenge? I’d also seen lots of people doing the September Beauty Blog Challenge post about this last week. I couldn’t post about my favourite because I’d run out, sobs! However, this did mean I tried a new hand cream and found a new favourite!
It contains Shea butter, Macadamia oil and Marshmallow, yes Marshmallow. It smells as sweet as it sounds. The function of the Marshmallow is a mystery to me but I love it nonetheless.
I love that this hand cream soaks in really fast but that doesn’t mean you have to keep reapplying it, oh no twice a day is fine! It isn’t greasy but really is super-hydrating. After just a week of using it as and when I remember (about once over the weekend but more during the week) my hands are softer than ever. I’m prone to dry patches and this has battled them right into history in just 7 days.
So in answer to their question, yes it is the most astonishing hand cream ever. It smells great and works even better, what more do you want from a hand cream. I’ve been the envy of the office this week with this delicious smelling formula and I’ll 110% be repurchasing!
Try it: £5, Boots
NEWS: We’ll be moving over to a self-hosted site this week so that the blog can be bigger and better.. watch this space for more information. I hope you’ll all support us in this move, it shouldn’t cause any disruption to service and those who follow should be automatcally moved over.
I was meant to post this yesterday but just didn’t the time, I usually try to have Sunday’s off to spend time with my family and at church etc so I’m doing an extra post today.
These are the products I am currently using to keep my hair healthy, especially as I colour my hair! I’ve also included my top tips.
I wash my hair every other day to avoid drying it out by over washing. I use this John Freida shampoo and conditioner to prolong my deep red hair colour. It does seem to be helping and it also makes my hair feel incredibly soft and moisturised.
I heat style my hair so this is perhaps one of my most important items in my hair care regime. I spray it onto damp hair to protect from blow-drying and then straightening. It also contains a UVC filter which protects my hair from the sun and helps to keep it hydrated and stops the sun bleaching the colour from my hair. It smells awesome too.
You can never protect your hair too much, I mainly use this to smooth y hair and keep it that way all day but it also protects my hair from the heat styling too. It makes my hair much more manageable to straighten and strengthens it against humid and damp weather.
I really enjoyed doing my pink post last week and this week it’s the turn of purple. My favourite colour although I don’t have much makeup that colour which I find odd so I’ll have to go purple-cosmetics-shopping! Anyway these are the purple products I do have.
Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple – So technically this doesn’t show up purple when it’s on but it is called purple and the bottle is purple. It also smells amazing. Full review here.
MUA Nail Polish in Frozen Yoghurt – I love this cute purple colour! I only used it for the first time yesterday and fell in love so I will review it at a later date. It is a wonderful candy-purple shade and is perfect for these last few sunny days before we hit autumn, I’m going to make the most of it while I still can!
Purple Hair Chalk – So I can’t use this right now with my red hair as it’ll clash far too much but I love it none the less and if/when I go back to a suitable colour again I’ll definitely be using it again. I have 24 different colour chalks but this is my favourite. Review here.
The Body Shop Eye Definer in Amethyst – This eye liner is great for adding a purple pop of colour to a natural look. I only reviewed it yesterday so I won’t go into too much detail.
The Body Shop Baked to last Eye Shadow duo in Amethyst – I have discovered ow that this is best used wet and I love the vibrant purple it produces that way. It looks stunning and is really easy to work with. Don;t think I’ll ever use it dry again!
Think next week will be Glorious Green so stay tuned for that!
I promise I’m nearly at the end of the reviews from my TBS haul! I’m building up my lipstick collection at the moment and as soon as I heard The Body Shop had launched a new one I had to give it a go!
I decided to go for a colour I didn’t already have so opted for Berry in Love which is a lovely deep pink shade with a touch of coral. It’s somewhere between a pink and red and it’s utterly perfect for every day wear. The colour comes out really well and I just can’t get a photo that does it justice. It is wonderfully pigmented and adds a touch of glamour to any look.
It also has a light rose scent which is very elegant and makes the task of applying the lipstick that bit more pleasant It’s also highly moisturising and leaves my lips feeling super soft and well cared for.
It lasts quite well for a lipstick that has a soft sheen finish, I usually find that the lipsticks that hydrate best last least, but this one lasts a good few hours and I don’t mind reapplying every so often.
I am definitely going to try some other colours so I’ll let you know if the others live up to this one!
Try it: RRP £10, The Body Shop
I’m loving coloured eye pencils at the moment and seeing as I bought an eye shadow this colour I decided to go all out and get the eye liner too. Unfortunately it is exactly the same colour as The Body Shop Baked to Last Amethyst eye shadow so it doesn’t show up with that. But, it looks lovely with neutral eyes to add a bit of colour instead.
It is a lovely soft eye pencil but the colour pay-off is minimal. You really have to build it up to get a suitable result. As much as I love TBS I’m finding recently that the colours are very subtle and I prefer my look to stand out if I am going with colours over a nude look.
It has a gorgeous shimmer to, which is beautiful and when built up enough would look fantastic for an evening look. It just takes time, patience and practice to get a good result, all things I don’t have a lot of.
It is however water-resistance and it has battled the rain for me, it is also dermatologist approved so it’s great for those of us who have sensitive eyes and skin.
I think £8 for this is a bit steep considering it is very pale and they boast a fantastic colour pay-off in the description, which just hasn’t delivered. Maybe some of the other colours would be better, I don’t know but I’m reluctant to try another one. May try the Avon Glimmer Sticks instead.
I hope that you don’t mind that today’s SBBC post is a review, got lots to catch up on and I don’t always have time to do 2 posts a day. Today is one of those very busy days, I’m writing this on my lunch break and I have a volunteer role tonight too 🙂
