mac cosmetics studio radiance face and body radiant sheer foundation

“I’ve been on the hunt for a sheer foundation for a while now, one for those days where I don’t fancy a lot of coverage, but still need a little something. The Mac Cosmetics Studio Radiance Face and Body Radiant Sheer Foundation has exceeded my expectations (and more!!). It’s super lightweight on the skin but leaves a stunning glowing finish, think of a your-skin-but-better result. It sits on my skin perfectly and doesn’t cake up or sit weird under the rest of my makeup routine. My new favourite daily foundation, for sure!! P.s. I use the shade N4.”

Nursem Ultra Caring Body Balm

“Like most people I suffer from dry skin especially during the colder months, which is why I knew I had to get my hands on the Ultra Caring Body Balm by Nursem. The formula is super thick; however, you only need a small amount for one application. It melts into the skin and is super absorbent so doesn’t leave you feeling sticky. The Balm also helps to eliminate scars which is an extra bonus! Highly recommend adding this to your Winter body care routine.”

shea moisture jamaican black castor oil strengthen and restore shampoo

“I have loved so many products from Shea Moisture for years, but the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Repair Shampoo is the product I reach for when my hair is feeling damaged and in need of some help. My hair is naturally wavy and I have quite a lot of it- which I use heat on more than I should, leaving it dry and damaged. This shampoo after just one wash leaves my hair feeling softer, nourished, stronger and more manageable! Castor oil is also an amazing ingredient for hair growth and so this shampoo is great for anyone wanting healthy long and fuller hair. The products are also sulphate free, cruelty-free and fair-trade. I would definitely recommend this range from Shea Moisture for restoring damaged hair back to life!”

lolas lashes tabby half strip lashes

“I am a half lash girly! I wear them with liner and on no makeup days! There’s lashes were so easy to apply and sat on my eye super easy. They give you the most gorg flirty cat eye look which is everything I look for in a lash.”

Helena, Social Media Assistant

zitsticka megashade

“I’m a big fan of the Zitsticka spot patches so I have been wanting to try their SPF for a while. As someone with acne-prone skin, some SPFs I’ve tried in the past have caused breakouts and left my skin looking and feeling greasy but the Zitsticka Megashade is super lightweight, and leaves my skin with such a nice glow.”

Mhairi, Brand Marketing Executive

hindash monochromance gradient palette

“Monochromance and a romance it is indeed! The shadows are so soft and buttery, truly blend out like a dream. Love the gradation between the shades, as you can mix the similar tones together. As well, as it has a great balance of neutrals and colour too. Petal and Throb create an absolutely beautiful blush shade!”

Tanith, Assistant Buyer

growth bomb supercharge serum

“As somebody who is constantly changing (and probably frying) their hair, I’m always looking for some good damage control. This Supercharge Serum is such a life-saver when my my hair is feeling particularly dry and flat, and helps to give it that boost. It makes my hair feel instantly smoother and softer, and takes away any brittleness – especially after wash day. It feels great on my scalp, and doesn’t weigh down my hair or make it feel tacky like some heavier serums can do. This is definitely a staple in my haircare routine!”

Amirah, Senior Paid Social Executive

higher education skincare night owl caffeinated eye creme

“This is the first eye cream I’ve finished and repurchased. The Higher Education Night Owl Caffeinated Eye Cream has made my under eyes look and feel better than they ever have – brighter, tighter and less puffy. My absolute fave feature is the triple roller-ball applicator which not only makes for a smooth application (no tugging the delicate skin!), it also has a cooling effect which is perfect first thing in the morning.”

Chloe, Marketing Manager

vanity planet exfora personal microdermabrasion wand

“If you’re into using at-home skincare devices, then the Vanity Planet Exfora Personal Microdermabrasion Wand needs to be on your radar. I am obsessed with using this device, and it leaves my skin feeling super clean and refreshed. It comes with multiple sized heads to use, for different parts of your face (and body) too, so it’s perfect for adding a little bit extra fancyness to your at-home facial sessions.”
