Beauty: New skincare, new skin?

So after facing that I cannot go back to my Origins or BareMinerals moisturisers and (as stated in my previous post) purchasing some Nivea ones. Hoping that my skin wouldn’t react to the Nivea ones as they are very simple and also very low in price which is a great bonus!

I have been using the Nivea Cremé and the Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream and am happy to say that my skin hasn’t reacted to either of them, what’s better is that my skin may finally be getting better!


I cannot confirm that they are great just yet, but have had no problems yet.

The Nivea Creme is a little oily for my liking, but sinks in eventually and the Light Moisturising Day Cream is fine on my skin, reacts a little with my burn (that happened at Benefit Cosmetics) that is healing now. I expected that the cream may react with the burn as it is still quite delicate, that is nothing to do with the cream, just my skin’s current state.

The Nivea Cremé appears to actually be healing the burn, this isn’t the purpose of the Cremé but it is working.

As for the Light moisturising day cream, I have no reactions, it is light on my skin and causes no breakouts, still a tiny bit oily but goes away on it’s own roughly a minute after application.

So glad that Nivea seems to work with my skin as they have many decent products at very reasonable prices!

Going to become a Nivea whore…

A bad experience at the Benefit Brow Bar

So yesterday was my boyfriend’s birthday and I needed to look good, I went down to Benefit Cosmetics in Debenhams to get my usual..


Not so WOW this time around…

I am going to tell this very in-a-nutshell and say that basically I got burned. The skin on my lip got ripped off during a waxing and I was left with open flesh which was not coverable with make-up.

If it wasn’t for Emily ( I would not have been very comfortable, she managed to cover the burn with a lot of products to make it appear that I still had skin!

Thanks Emily for saving my butt!

I have made a complaint to Benefit Cosmetics UK and am awaiting a reply.

I am a loyal customer and have never had such a terrible experience.

I am now extremely worried that this may scar.



Beauty: One of my favourites (Mascara)

So today while I was in Boots, I actually remembered to re-purchase my favourite Mascara!

After receiving They’re Real by Benefit for my Birthday in June, I stopped using my regular one which was Clinique’s High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara which was and still is my all time favourite Mascara.

It wasn’t that I didn’t love They’re Real, because I did!

I preferred the formula of Clinique’s High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara, It was quick drying, but not too quick (I still had enough time to add an extra coat).

It is so easy to apply and it separates and lengthens the lashes to create natural-looking, yet super-long lashes!



I also love the wand, the rounded end is great for lower and corner lashes, and the size of the wand is generous, big enough to apply, but not so big that it ends up all over my eyes.

The packaging is bold and metallic, it looks pretty in my make-up bag!


If anybody has a different favourite, do let me know as I love discovering great products.
