Boots Natural Collection Haul (Rachel's Fault)

So just lately drug store brands have really stepped up their game in terms of producing some great quality make up.  Brands like MUA, 2True and Now natural Collection have taken the beauty world by the horns and made us Beauty Bloggers stand up and take notice of them.   Now when I saw people talking about Natural Collection I was like how good can this stuff be I remember buying this when I was at high school and didn't really know any better.  So I had to check it out First thing I noticed was it was on offer all products were £1.99 or 3 for £5 BARGAIN so I picked up 2 lipsticks and a gloss after seeing Rachel raving about them. Here's a link to the lovely  Rachel's Natural Collection Lipstick Post.  

Haul 1
Lipstick shade Honeysuckle
Lipstick shade Autumn Glow
Juicy Lips shade Barley Sugar

 Haul 2
Pressed powder shade warm
blushed cheeks shade peach melba
Juicy Lips Barley Sugar (backup)
(ignore the lashes brought them with my £5No7 voucher)

So as you can see I love the gloss so much I got another to carry around with me I have been putting these through there paces the last few weeks and I'm really impressed with them so far.  I will review in more detail hopefully next week but if you are popping into boots go and check the stand out I was surprised.

Clean & Clear Advantage Fast Action Daily Wash and Spot Gel

If you follow my blog you will know I suffer from spots and with the help of the Clean and Clear range they have got alot better than what they have been.  So currently  I used the Clean & Clear deep action exfoliating scrub and my deep clean cream cleanser in the morning and have stepped up my evening routine to add in these.

Clean & Clear Advantage Fast Action Daily Wash

Now this face wash stings there's no two ways about it but its not as bad as some I have tried.  It leaves my skin feeling really clean and soft after using it. It claims to help clear spots fast and keeps spots at bay without drying out your skin.  Now this is no wonder product it does help but I'm not spot free but I am alot better then when I don't use this.

Clean & Clear Spot Gel

I use this on problem spots to try and dry them up again this does sting so if you don't like the feeling stay away. It claims reduce spots in 4 hours and help keep them away I do think this helps but I think with like anything your skin can sort of get used to it so I like to use it when I really need to.

Diet update week 9

Ok so last Monday I lost 2lb bringing my total to 23 lb which I'm over the moon about. Still doing exactly the same thing following the plan but have used some of my treat points. I'm losing at a average of 2.5lb a week which is ment to be a healthily rate to lose. I've also worked out if I was to carry on losing at that rate by the time I go away I could have lost over 6 stone I am expecting the weight loss to slow do so If I was to lose 1lb still be really pleased. So weight in tonight fingers crossed its a lose as I could reach my first set target tonight. Hope your all doing well.

L'oreal Elvive Triple Resist Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi Girls xxx

So lately I have been having a major hair fall out which I was getting a little bit worried about now I'm not sure if my hair was overly falling out or if it's just cause its fairly long and dark and I notice it more.  But honestly I do think it has been falling out worse than normal so that led to me picking these up.  I brought them when they were on offer they were around the £4 each mark but they were on buy one get one free.  Now I don't colour my hair or blow dry it or straighten it all the time my hair is always allowed to dry naturally unless I'm heading out which isn't very often.  So really I do look after my hair well I use my Tangle Teezer and only wash every other day and between days dry shampoo it. 

So the last time I had this problem I had just had Faith and the midwife told me I should stop feeding her myself as I wasn't keep enough good stuff back for me but this isn't the problem this time.  So I could put it down to stress which I think is the main problem as we have had alot on our plates.

So the shampoo and conditioner smell lovely lather up well and left my hair soft and clean do I think it helped with the fall out errrrmmmm I'm not sure to be honest it didn't make things any worse.  

I did notice less fall out but was that down to reduced stress levels possible yes.  So the jury is out on this one I liked it used it all would I spend £8 on them again no I don't think so.

Sigma Cleansing & Polishing Tool Review & Cloud 10 Beauty Review

Hi Girls xxx

You might remember me popping this little beauty down on my Christmas list and Jon ordered it me when Sigma had their Black Friday offer however Sigma also managed to complete cock up the order and I never got it.  So with Christmas looking very gloomy Rachel said I should try and boy was I glad I did.  

Now If you haven't ordered from Cloud10 before here are some useful things to know
You get beauty points on your placed orders (and what do point make FREE STUFF)
You get FREE delivery on any order over £40
You get to pick 3 FREE samples when you place and order
They even offer FREE returns

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the packaging!!

Out the Box
What you get

OK so let me start by tell you I was dieing to get my hands on a Clarisonic but at £120 ish I couldn't really afford it so when I saw this I thought I would try it.  I'm a big fan of Sigma makeup brushes and had heard some really good reviews on the cleansing and polishing tool.  I'm a total sucker for packaging and when I saw this I fell in love the tool fits nicely into my hand and feels well made, it comes in the storage case and has 3 brushes with it the one attached is the face brush the other two are body brushes in medium and firm.

I have to be honest I only tend to use my face one I use mine with my clean and clear face wash and I find it leaves my skin feeling really clean.  I haven't noticed any drastic improvements in my skin but having said that as I'm on my diet I'm eating better and drinking swimming pools full of water, so this is flushing my system out which may mean a delay in seeing result in using this tool.  All that said I really enjoy using it and I like the feel of my skin after I tend to use once a week I might try and step it up to twice a week see if it helps.

If you want to try this I recommend using cloud10beauty link to the Sigma Tool to order my order was pain free and arrived really fast.

Thank you Cloud 10 for saving Christmas!!!

Diet update week 8

Well yesterday was weight in day No 8 and I lost 4lb I am over the moon this brings my total to 21 1/2lb. I'm going to be honest were not following the diet 100 % we are eating our green foods which basically food which keep you fuller for longer. The weighing of everything really annoys me anyway that said we must be doing something right.

Hope your all doing well on your diets
