Collection incredibrow tinted brow mascara | Collection incredibrow brow primer | review

Collection formerly known as collection 2000 have some cute eyebrow products on sale just now. Today I want to review tinted brow mascara and also the eyebrow primer stick! Both products are vegan. The tinted mascara comes in three different shades light, medium and dark. You can pick them up instore at Superdrug or boots, check out collection cosmetics website here.

When it comes to reviews I always want to be 100 percent honest even if its a negative review, the eyebrow primer looks impressive. It has jojoba oil and vitamins etc to nourish the eyebrows and primes the eyebrows for tint and colour etc. The stick has a turner that is meant to release the serum to apply onto your brows but it doesn’t work. I tried squeezing the tube and turning/pushing but nope nothing came out. Its such a fantastic product but its useless to use.

On the other hand the tinted brow mascara worked so perfectly, looked amazing when it was on and the colour was excellent on my brows, my brows are actually black so getting a super dark tint is a no no. I always go for light to medium to lighten up my brows, id say this is one of the best tinted brow products I have used so far.

tweezerman/sephora mini tweezer dupes from primark! so cute 🐱😁👀✨

Picked up these cute micro mini tweezers from primark for £1:50, they are so sweet and cute and perfect for a travel bag. These are by far the best dupes of tweezermans mini set that I have seen. there is a micro mini tweezer set with a wallet selling for 30 pound on the tweezerman website and the exact same are in primark for £1:50 but minus the wallet.

This set contains: 
– Angled-tip tweezer 
– Pointed-tip tweezer 
– Flat-tip tweezer 
– Slanted-point tweezer 

I’m not sure if there’s any more like this set in Primark with a mini wallet to match but that would be pretty cool for Primark to develope. New look also have mini tweezers for 5 pounds and there are are a few other shops with similar products but obviously primark is by far the best price !

I get so excited about cute mini beauty products, I’m a fan of travel minis bigtime and will hopefully have a travel section added to my blog pretty soon. If you liked this blog post please like, share, subscribe ! I appreciate all my followers and read all my comments xx

Cien hydrating shampoo and conditioner | Herbal essences dupe | Review ✨😉

Lidls Cien range have herbal essence dupes on sale for about 99pe each, The bottle is so similar to herbal essences design and also the look and feel of the product. I picked up cien hydrating shampoo and conditioner to review for all my readers.

Just like herbal essence 😊😉

“Cien deep hydrating shampoo/conditioner has been created to help give your hair deep moisture, for dry and damaged hair that requires nourishing, enjoy the fragrance of coconut extract as it helps replenish your hair. leaving your hair soft, silky and smelling amazing.”

So I was practising a bob cut on one of my training dolls heads and decided to test out these hair products on the dolls hair, the dolls hair has been bleached and also had a light pink applied to it and felt very damaged and dry. See pictures below. After blow-drying the hair I was surprised at how soft the hair felt and also had a brilliant shine to it. Id say this is a fantastic budget dupe of herbal essences haircare range and would recommend this for dry damaged hair, it also has 0% paraffin and for 400ml for about 99p that’s fantastic.

Good quality finish after a blow dry 👌
High shine 💯

Cien pro vitamin shampoo and conditioner | Lidl beauty | Review ✨💯

You can find budget beauty and hair care in lidl under the cien brand and today I am doing a review on the 300 ML pro vitamin shampoo and conditioner repair and protect which you can pick up in lidl for only 99p each, I have put it to the test to see if this is a haircare bargain or not. Also I have done a review of the cien coconut and lychee shampoo and conditioner click here to see!

Ok so lidls pro vitamin repair and protect shampoo and conditioner claims it is for damaged and dry hair, it all claims to make hair glossier and easy to comb through and that the pro vitamin b5 gently coats each strand without weighing it down ? Nourishes the hair etc etc…

So you wouldn’t really expect much of a 99p hair product, you would say maybe something around 6 pound or 10 would do all of that for your hair and a really cheap shampoo/conditioner would just be basic. I read on some other beauty blogs that there was a study where girls were given a hair product worth about 90 pounds and also a cien lidl shampoo/conditioner and didn’t know which was one they had, the results were that they liked the cien one better!

I found this shampoo and conditioner to be better than I thought, my hair was very shiney after blow drying and also felt less dry. It has a good fragrance and feels gentle on my scalp. have you tried anything from the cien range? let us know in the comment section ?

My hair is falling out…. what will i do

The main cause of hair loss is STRESS! Physical and psychological stress can cause hair loss, along with strain on the body such as going through childbirth. Several months after childbirth you can expect hair to fall out in shower etc. Also going through a trauma or recent illness can contribute to hair loss. Vitamin deficiency can impact hair loss, such as riboflavin, biotin, folate, and vitamin B12 deficiencies.

Can it maybe be something more serious ?

yes!, hair loss can also be a symptom of a larger medical issue a person may have, like hypothyroidism or lupus.You need to make an appointment with your GP and get tested if you believe your hair loss is not linked to stress.

How to make your hair grow faster | facts & fiction | advice

So many girls out there are wanting their hair to grow faster, maybe they have damaged/hair loss hair due to extensions or had it cut way too short. We have all been there when we have wanted our hair to grow that just a little bit faster. Common knowledge in the hair in beauty world is :

The American Academy of Dermatology says that hair grows about 1/2 inch per month on average. That’s a grand total of about 6 inches per year for the hair on your head.

6 inches per year! that’s not enough for people who are unhappy about hair thinning, hair loss or just really short hair, As a hairdresser I know about a lot of hair growth products and I also did some research on hair growth case studies, in some studies it was found that products/oils really did stimulate hair growth and so it is my personal belief that the official common knowledge about hair growth being only 1/2 inch a year is wrong!

If we follow the correct hair care advice from professionals and also keep ourselves healthy I do believe faster hair growth is POSIIBLE! although its not going to be overnight as some articles or youtube videos claim. I saw on youtube someone claiming growth in 5 days…. LMAO! If that was true we would all have long hair then wouldn’t be ?

If your hair is falling out then please click here, I have created a separate article on this as there are other elements at play for hair that falls out xx

Diet and nutrition is major for hair growth, Iron is fantastic for promoting hair growth and can be found in spinach. Iron is best absorbed with vitamin C and so a nice big glass of orange juice along side iron rich foods seems like a good idea. Iron, Omega-3 and Vitamin A will help to supercharge your follicles to promote healthy hair growth. See video below for more information.

Exercise can boost hair growth. This is because it increases blood circulation and the amount of oxygen and nutrients going to your scalp. This will ensure your follicles are getting everything they need to grow strong and healthy hair. Cardio and yoga are particularly good for this so you might want to add them into your routine if you want to achieve faster hair growth ! See video below for a good beginners yoga routine!

Another way of promoting hair growth is to create hair masks using oils and ingredients at home! Never put an essential oil directly on your scalp or skin!! You need to dilute them in whats called a carrier oil then apply. You can use coconut oil, olive oil as carrier oil etc. Lavender and rosemary oils are world renowned for promoting hair growth. See video below about tips on creating your own hair growth potion at home to save you the pennies.

Phil smith tongs + elle straightener review ✨❤️💜👀

Love these curling tongs 😜

Phil smith curling tongs only 10 pound from Argos or you can find them on eBay. Was really happy with the results using these curling tongs as there are more expensive ones exactly the same on the market for double the price! These are a bargain and work so well, so easy to operate and give fantastic curls, go to bottom of post to see images of the curls. These curling tongs are the best budget tongs out there !

BEFORE TONGING
BEAUTIFUL CURLS
PINK AND PRETTY

Elle Pink hair straighteners are available in B&M store for only 10 pound! I wanted to try them out as I am going to be blogging more about budget hair tools in the future, The design is so pretty and what girl doesn’t want pink hair tools right ? For 10 pound it is an absolute bargain but does it do the job ?

AFTER STRAIGHTENING X

After curling the hair I used the straighteners and picture above is the results, I allowed the straighteners to heat up to the max. I found that It did straighten out the curly hair but the ends were still wavy. i went back over again and it still was wavy lol ! I think if you are wanting poker straight hair you will need to go over your sections at least 3 times or so! So with saying that I don’t think these are good for people who want straight hair fast. They still do the job! But just slower and at 10 pound they are still a bargain and look really pretty.

I hope you enjoyed my little budget hair tool experiment and subscribe to read more! And also let me know in the comments section what your favourite budget hair tools are ??

Stain-proof plastic films lay on both tray bottom and case bottom

I was surprised at the quality of the make-up case, it was better quality of what I thought it would be and the stain proof plastic at the bottom of the trays is a good touch as most boxes get dirty with make-up spillage etc… I am interested in a few other boxes from the same maker such as the gold marble rose with a shoulder strap ( click here ) to see! for a beauty professional such as myself vanity cases and storage boxes are very important for my tools and I have been through so many of them in the past. So I have an eye for good quality storage and wanted to share my finds with my readers!

Lux skin | LED MASK | Review 🎭😱✨😜

Light therapy for skin is nothing new and dermatologist’s have been using this technology for decades, with modern technology we can bring the clinic or salon to our home and pamper ourselves. LED skin therapy was interesting to me so I bought myself a lux skin facial mask which has some good reviews online, by far its definitely the cheapest LED face mask you can get online as others are as expensive as £300 !

Red Light – 620nm to 750nm wavelength – Great anti-aging benefits because of its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.


Blue Light – 405nm to 420nm wavelength – Great for acne treatment. Stimulates the production of oxygen radicals that kills acne-causing bacteria, without damaging the skin. 


Yellow Light – 590nm to 620nm wavelength – Used to cleanse the skin, boost lymphatic flow and increase production of new skin cells.  

Lux skins facial mask is wireless so your not confined to one spot and also can be charged via USB, it has a cute pink design and very easy to operate, overall I like the design of the mask and feel like I do believe in the results of LED therapy.

I’m going to use this mask every three days and do an diary on this post to show my results and what I learned.

April 2nd : First time using the mask, currently have dry areas and some breakouts, wrinkles on eye area that I want reduced. First off I’m just using the red and blue light for 20 mins each while listening to my horoscope laying down.

April 5th : Used the mask today again but only the red light and also had it on last night for 10 minuets or so. Today I notice my skin looks more youthful and so much clearer. dry skin on forehead area has cleared, I didn’t use any moisturiser so I can experiment with this led mask. My cheeks look plumper as well! Roll on the next few uses !!

April 8th : Used again for 10 minuets on my face and my face looked so plumpy and clear almost as soon as I was finished. started to get compliments from people about how clear and good my face looks!! I also saw it myself in the mirror and I am very happy with the results.

April 12th : Back at it again, used the mask twice today as I love the results tried to use for longer for 15 minuets, skin is still so lovely and clear. Still on the red light but will change to blue and yellow soon.
