Topshop Head Over Heels Review

Head Over Heels is a bright coral-orange, but it doesn't leave you with a bright orange face because it's really blendable. The swatch above shows how bright the blush is when you apply it and how it looks when it's blended out.The packaging for this blush is lovely and it's a great product. It has a tiny bit of shimmer in it. I usually dab a little bit of this on my cheeks and blend it for a subtle pop of colour. A little bit of this product goes a long way. It also makes my face look brighter. I really like this blush.

OOTN - Under the Rose

Top & necklace: Miss Selfridge, skirt: Bank, bracelet: Topshop, knock-off Chanel bag: holiday, boots: Office, jacket: Warehouse

Hello :). So, today's post is an outfit of the night, I wore this for a night out at a pub. I got the bag when I went abroad on holiday in the summer. I love asymmetrical skirts, I wanted one for a while then I got this skirt from bank. I think they can be easily dressed up or down. I've seen a few skirts like the this in the January sale, I paid full price for mine. I hate when that happens. I did get some stuff in the sale - the necklace and bracelet. Some more sale items will be coming up in future posts.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Care Review

I love The Body Shop, I went in there a while ago looking for skincare products and the tea tree range stood out for me because they claim to give clearer looking skin. I got the skin clearing facial wash, blackhead exfoliating wash and skin clearing toner. There was a tea tree moisturiser which I didn't get (want to use up my current moisturiser first). 

These products all have a strong smell of tea tree. The exfoliator has large grains in it. I use it about twice a week, because I don't think it's gentle enough to use more often. The toner is a bit annoying, because a sediment settles in the bottom of the bottle, so you have to give it a good shake before using it. 

I've been using these products for a few weeks and I haven't noticed a reduction in the appearance of my spots. They're quite drying so I recommend moisturising after using these. I think they're wrong for my skin type (combination) and would be better suited for oily skin. They are good products and are great cleansers. My skin feels so clean and refreshed after using these.

Topshop Glow Polished Review

Topshop glow is a great, multi-purpose highlighter. You can apply it under or over foundation. I prefer to apply it over foundation, I just dab a bit on my face and pat it to blend it out. It can also be mixed with moisturiser to create a luminous base. I love that this product is blendable so you can control how sparkly you want to look. It's easy to add a subtle shimmer to your skin with this highlighter. It's also long lasting. I love this product. If you're looking for a cream highlighter, I'd definitely recommend this.
