My Winter Skincare Saviour

December 27, 2018

Hey guys

I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas break. I always forget how relaxing it is, how much everyone just switches off and takes time off. It’s needed at this time of the year and it’s so nice. I think every year I appreciate it a little bit more.

As much as I have been enjoying the break, my skin hasn’t really had much of one with all the nights out, the heating in the house and the cold weather, so I have been trying to treat it to a little rehydration 2/3 times a week.

The NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost skincare range is amazing for rehydrating the skin – I’ve been using a few different products from the range for over 6 months now so I wanted to share with you my experience and my thoughts on one of them.

If you have been following me for a while, you will definitely have heard me talk about or seen me use the NEUTROGENA® Hydro Boost Hydrogel Recovery Masks before. There are 4 masks in the range: Purifying Boost, Hydro Boost, Radiance Boost and Ageless Boost.

What’s great about the NEUTROGENA® Hydrogel Recovery Masks are the ingredients, the results and the price. The range is inspired by innovative technology from Korea and tested with dermatologists to give you results in just 15 minutes, so it’s a really quick but effective addition to your beauty routine.

Each mask contains the equivalent of a 30ml bottle of concentrated serum (a month’s worth), so it leaves your skin moisturised and hydrated all day long (which is so important in the wintertime).

They also come in two parts, with separate sections for the upper and lower face, the segments adhere smoothly to the contours of your face and focus on areas that really need the extra hydration. It’s the perfect addition to your wintertime skincare routine as it’s so quick and easy, but it gives your skin what it needs too.

The masks are super convenient size-wise, I find them great for travelling and they are so affordable as well (only €4 in Boots). Click here to shop or to see more about the masks online.

There is also NEUTROGENA® Instant Boost Facial Cream Masks in the range, these are small little pods with 10ml of cream masks inside. Their size makes them great for travelling and using on-the-go. For someone like me who doesn’t always have time to book in for a facial, it’s great that they give the instant benefit of a facial in 15 minutes.

I have to say my personal favourite is the NEUTROGENA® Radiance Boost Hydrogel Recovery Mask (the pink one). I just find my skin to be bright and soft afterwards.

Let me know if you try them out and what you think, I know you’ll love them as much as I do.


Enjoy the rest of the break,

Back soon with more,

Lou xx

Makeup Must Haves

If you have any must-haves that aren’t included below let me know so I can try them 🙂

My Go-To Tan: Iconic Bronze

October 1, 2018

Hi guys,

If you were following my social media you’ll know I spent the last few days in Tenerife with my friend Ciara. I was invited over to the launch event of the Hotel Vulcano rooftop Up Terrace (where I took these pics – the views are amazing!) We had such a fun few days and an interesting journey with Veuling (never flying with them again haha) – you can watch my vlog of the trip here.

Anyway one of the questions I got asked a lot on the trip was what tan I was wearing. If you follow my social media you’ll know I’m an Iconic Bronze ambassador. I absolutely love their tan, and have been using it for almost a year now. It’s October now so it’s safe to say my summer tan has well and truly faded. I love being nice and dark so my go-to tan is the Iconic Bronze dark mousse – which I applied the night before travelling, I slept with it on and washed it off that morning. I find it applies really smoothly with the Iconic Bronze mitt (no streaks) and lasts really well (doesn’t go blotchy). You can see more about the tan and how I apply it here. It’s approx €13.99 (depending on where you buy it) and I’d usually get a month or two out of a bottle if I was applying regularly. You can buy in Penneys/Primark or in pharmacies nationwide as well.  Continue Reading…

The Best Beauty Websites for Online Shopping

March 5, 2018

Hi guys,

I did a poll on my Instagram stories today to find out how many of you buy your make up online. I had a good idea that the majority still bought it in shops, and I was right. There is something nice about going in and trying products – and trust me, I do that too. But when you’re running out of your favourite foundation that you wear every day – it would be handy to have it ordered and on the way wouldn’t it? Especially if you can get a discount and free shipping 😉

I’ve been working on this post over the past few days, gathering as much info as possible to make buying beauty products online that little bit easier.

I’ve narrowed it down to the top five beauty websites online at the moment (in my opinion and with the help of my followers). I’ve named some of the brands they have, how much shipping costs, how long it takes and some of my top picks from the websites.

Hopefully you find it helpful,

Includes makeup, skincare, electricals, hair care, nails and makeup brushes. Has cult brands but often doesn’t have the latest products from the cult brands ranges. For example, Anastasia BH’s new highlighter. This was by far the most popular website among my followers. Lots of you recommended this one and gave great reviews (mainly due to the great shipping options & wide range of brands). Continue Reading…
