The Aurelia Probiotic Miracle Cleanser

I have always been a fan of cleansing balms/creams so when I first saw this cleanser in a magazine I knew I just had to try it. I loved the packaging and I was drawn into finding out more about the brand and the product. I visited the website and I instantly fell in love with the brands concept behind there skincare range, www.aureliaskincare.com

After having used this product for the past 2 months I can honestly say it is my favourite cleanser that I own. This cleanser is a creamy formulation and includes lovely hints of eucalyptus and rosemary.  It instantly leaves your skin feeling hydrated and dewy. It also has a really calming affect on the skin.


How I use this product:


I tend to use this cleanser in the evening, this is just a personal preference.  I apply the product on dry skin and rub the cream gently into the skin. I then damp the bamboo muslin cloth (which it comes with) in luke warm water and buff the cream in with the cloth in circular motions. The  bamboo muslin cloth removes dead cells from your skin which leaves the skin with a gorgeous glow. I then gently dry my face with a flannel and I am all cleansed and ready to moisturise my skin.

New Maybelline 24hr Color Tatoo Shades in Metallic Pomegranite & Everlasting Navy

I have loved the colour tattoo cream eyeshadows since they were first launched here in the UK. However, some of the recent shades they have launched just have not been for me. When I popped into my local Superdrug this week and saw these 2 new shades, Metallic Pomegranate and Everlasting Navy, I didn't even think I just bought. 

These 2 shades are gorgeous, I love the bronzeness of the 'Metalic Pomegranate' shade and the gold flex in it look really nice on the lid.


'Everlasting Navy' is an equally gorgeous colour and one that would suit all eye colours. 


The great thing about these cream eyeshadows is that you have the option to either wear them as a light wash over the lids or build them up to a deep colour. They are also really good as a base before applying a powder eyeshadow and for £5 you can not really go wrong.


Overall I am really impressed with the Maybelline 24hr Colour tattoos and I highly recommend these shades, they would suit all eye colours! Superdrug has a 3 for 2 across all makeup in store so if you are thinking of buying them then now would be a good time. Let me know if you have tried these 2 new shades and what you think.

The Holiday Edit AKA The Summer Checklist


The Holiday Summer Edit 







The Check List

1 Sunglasses - Rayban Wayfarers are my all time favourite sunglasses. You can see them in this post here

2 SPF - Face and body. SPF is really important regardless whether you are on holiday or not. I always wear SPF on my face, on top of my moisturiser. This Clarins SPF here is my favorite City spf

3 A day to night bag. I particularly like the Kurt Geiger one, here

4 Fun coloured bikinis (I love this one here and this Topshop one here)

5 Bright nail polish - I love wearing bold colours on my nails in the Summer and they look great when I have a little tan 

6 A sun hat - to be honest this is not a necessity but they do look great.

7 Bronzer - Personally I love a bronzer with a bit of sparkle in the summer, this Guerlain one is gorgeous

8 Bold Lip colours, this one is gorgeous here.  

9 A great pair of heeled sandals. (These here are definitely on my wishlist and these here)
