Current face of the day

These are the makeup items I've been using for the past 2 weeks:)

Jessup slanted face brush
No7 lip liner (colour has worn off)
Benefit eyebright - I use this on my inner eyes & bridge of my nose
Rimmel match perfection concealer - I use this under my eyes
Rimmel lasting finish concealer - this is great for conealing any spots
Maybelline dream bouncy blush in coffee cake - I love this colour as it's a pink/bronzed colour so I don't feel the need to use bronzer.

  • Tresemme heat protector - this was probably one of the first ever brands of heat protectors I bought as a teenager, so I've went through a lot of these over the years. However I don't think I will repurchase as my hair is much dryer now and needs a more moisture locking heat protector.  
  • Simple age regeneration age resisting night cream - when this is on offer I usually stock up on it as it gives my skin the right amount of moisture it needs.
  • Superdrug brunette dry shampoo - as I am pregnant I've stopped colouring my hair, luckily I've found that this superdrug own brand dry shampoo for brunette hair is the exact colour of my hair and covers my roots perfect! 
  • Loreal volume texturising spray - I love using this on freshly curled hair to loosen the curls give it a bit of volume.
  • Method foaming hand wash - this is my favourite brand of hand wash, any of their hand washes are great and don't dry your skin. 
  • Nivea eye makeup remover- this does a great job at removing waterproof mascara but my favourite is now the body shops camomile remover as I feel it's more natural.
  • Lush snow fairy - believe it or not this big bottle of snow fairy is from last Christmas, it lasted nearly all year.
  • The Body Shop Camomile waterproof eye and lip makeup remover - this stuff is great and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all.
  • Palmers cocoa butter stretch marks - this is really moisturising even if you're not pregnant and layering it all over your belly!lol! I also use it on my legs and arm and it leaves my skin lovely and smooth.
  • Waitrose pure hair conditioner - I got this when I was in London at the start of the year, I really did enjoy using it but obviously can't repurchase as we have no waitrose in Ireland.
  • Nip + fab glycolic fix exfoliating pads - I bought these when they were on offer along with the dragons blood ones and I do really like them but would probably only purchase if they are on offer.
  • Max factor false lash effect waterproof mascara - I think I got this in a max factor free gift set, it does do a great job but I'm currently on the hunt for a cruelty free mascara that gives great volume (still need to research if max factor is cruelty free or not)
  • Max factor face finity 3 in 1 foundation - I use this on a daily basis for work as it lasts pretty much all day, I did a blog post comparing it to the Estee Lauder double wear light and I think for the price it is a great dupe.
  • Trilogy botanical shower gel - this is probably the most luxurious shower gel I've ever used, it feels like a spa treatment. You can purchase it in a large pump bottle which I'm trying to resist from buying as I still have so many products to use up.
I'm currently trying to use up most of my products before I buy new things as I want to try and convert to cruelty free products. I need to research my favourite products/brands and see if they are cruelty free or not.

Baby products bought so far

Leave a Comment



I like products that are universally suitable for both genders, so as you can see I've mainly picked neutral colours with a few multicoloured items mixed in:)

  1. Mamas & Papas 3 piece furniture set 
  2. Mamas & Papas changing mat
  3. JJ Cole changing bag (I can't find a UK shop that sells this)
  4. Chicco next to me crib 
  5. Chicco polly magic high chair - this is amazing, suitable from birth until 3, turns from bouncer to highchair & then to a chair which can sit at the table.
  6. Chicco rainbow cube (you can get this in blue or pink, I liked the blue one better)
  7. Chicco hoopla bouncer (colour sage)
  8. Chicco boppy tree of life nursing pillow
  9. Chicco play mat (as I've bought all the chicco products in a package deal I'm not sure which play mat I'll receive)
  10. Chicco urban stroller travel system - I was previously going to buy either the Joie travel system or the mamas and papas black travel system but when I seen this I was just blown away. Firstly the bassinet section turns into the stroller which is ingenious as it saves so much space! All the other prams I seen had the bassinet & stroller as two seperate parts but this is all in one! The car seat also attaches to the base for days where I might want to travel on the bus so it'll be more space saving. Finally this pram folds very compact and has a carry handle making it easier to move. This deal came with the autofix base but we ordered the extra isofix base as it seems to be the safest option and is super easy to use.
I'm 21 weeks now and getting super excited!

The Body Shop sale buys

Leave a Comment
If you've read my blog for a while you will probably know that The Body Shop is my all time favourite place to buy skincare, bodycare & beauty. When I got an email to say 40% off,of course I had to go straight online and order!:)
  • Camomile waterproof eye and lip makeup remover - retails at £9 each, sale price £10.80 for two. As I only use waterproof mascara I have found that is the only makeup remover that actually removes all traces of my eye makeup, plus it doesn't irritate my eyes.
  • Aloe vera antiperspirant roll on deodorants - retails at £4 each, sale price £4.80 for two. I have really sensitive under arms especially after shaving, I've used this for a week and it's probably the most moisturising deodorant I've ever used.
  • Vitamin E facial spray - retails at £9.50, sale price was £5.70. I ran out of MAC fix plus so I thought I would try this as a finishing spray over makeup.  So far it's working great and adding extra moisture to my skin which is a bonus for autumn/winter.
