Shockingly enough, when Jarek was in Poland he picked me up a few bits. I know, I know, I couldn’t believe it either. 

When I first got into blogging he was really supportive and not only helped me build my blog and logo, but also started helping with research.

One resource was a Bobbie Brown book which I loved and to this day cherish (well kinda, it’s in my mother’s house somewhere at the moment). Even though I loved the book I never ever bought any of the products. Not because I didn’t like them, but to be honest after talking to the sales reps at home in Dublin, I was made feel like it wasn’t a makeup brand for me.

Well to my surprise, Jarek came home with a bag of goodies and this little beauty was in it.

I love mascara, but never invest in expensive ones because I’ve found the ones in the “drugstore” to be great! 

This might be a game changer though!

Acne Concealer Essentials

Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream

I’m finally getting around to doing a review on my favourite concealer, Catrice Camouflage Cream.  If you follow me on any social media, you will know I suffer from acne. Concealer is something I feel I can’t live without. I’ve been LOVING this concealer for the past 6 months. I literally can’t get over how good it is. It’s cheap as chips, give amazing coverage and comes in a good few shades which is great. This concealer, in my opinion, is exclusively for acne / blemishes. It’s much too heavy for under the eyes, covering those dark circles.

I use a lot of tan so for me a scrub is essential, whether it be an actual scrub, gloves or a mitt. The one I’ve been using for the past few months is this amazing Rituals Hammam Hot Scrub. It has an oily base and texture, with lots of chunky salt as the body and the most amazing aroma,of ginger and eucalyptus, a bit more masculine then what I’m used to using but sometimes change is good.
