Sachajuan Volume Powder

The Sachajuan Volume Powder is a powder based spray that provides structure and creates great volume, I mean who doesn't want more volume to their hair. My hair lacks volume as it's really long and thick so I'm so happy to have discovered this product. This powder spray is a dry product and it gives your hair a slight matte finish and I also love that it keeps the hair refreshed in between shampoos.
The Sachajuan Volume Powder is clear once sprayed which again I really like as my hair is quite dark. It smells very refreshing and my hair feels cleaner and has a lot more volume which will tend to last for around at least two days. I absolutely love this powder it's very handy and super easy to use, all I do is spray it onto my scalp and wait a few seconds allowing it to dry, I then run my fingers through my hair to brush through and remove any excess product. I do recommend to shake the bottle well before using. I'm so happy with the Sachajuan Volume Powder I love using this in the mornings as a quick lift me up, my hair feels refreshed and has much more volume. You can purchase the Sachajuan Volume Powder here for £22

Eve of St. Agnes Nourishing Cleansing Cream

Lately I've really been into hot cloth cleansers, I love discovering new brands so here we have the Eve of St. Agnes Nourishing Cleansing Cream. Firstly I absolutely love the packaging I think it's stunning and looks so pretty on my bathroom shelf. The Eve of St. Agnes Cleansing Cream is designed to effectively remove all make-up while cleansing the skin deep down and leaving the skin feeling amazingly soft and smooth.
The Eve Of St. Agnes Nourishing Cleansing Cream smells incredible, it smells of zingy sweet orange and my face feels super refreshed after I use this cleansing cream. It's super easy to apply to the skin and a little honestly goes such a long way. I simply apply it to damp skin, I then wet the muslin cloth with warm water and massage my skin in circular motions. I love that the Eve of St. Agnes Nourishing Cleansing Cream literally removes all of my make-up including waterproof mascara which is great. I really like that this cleansing cream doesn't leave my skin feeling dry, my skin feels hydrated and super soft to touch once I've used this. I absolutely LOVE it! I'm very impressed with this cleansing cream and I can't wait to try more from the Eve Of St. Agnes range.

Windle & Moodie Treatment Masque

Windle & Moodie have become one of my all time favourite hair care products, firstly I absolutely love the packaging and I have been so impressed with the few products I have tried from the range. They're pure luxury and I can't wait to try more products in the future. Windle & Moodie products are all eco friendly which I really like. Here we have the Intense Treatment Masque which is designed to bring dry and colour treated hair back to life, the smart keratin and lipid technologies work to repair and strengthen the hair while the antioxidant rich blend nourishes and detangles the hair while leaving a lovely shine. This treatment masque contains green tea and cocoa butter so you can imagine how amazing it also smells!
The ends of my hair tend to get quite dry and I love using hair masque to re-nourish my hair. The Windle & Moodie Intense Treatment Masque is super thick and smells amazing!! I tend to use this around once/twice a week depending on how my hair feels, I layer on the product focusing mainly on the ends of my hair and any left over product I will brush it through from roots to end. I tend to leave this masque for around 15/20 minutes and then simply wash it off.
I am super impressed with the Windle & Moodie Intense Treatment Masque it does exactly what it promises. My hair is so easy to brush through once I've used this treatment usually I'm there for 10 minutes trying to brush out my long knotted hair which is not fun at all. After using this masque I immediately notice that my hair feels a lot softer and detangled. My hair feels so much healthier after using the Windle & Moodie Intense Treatment Masque I could really tell that it had soaked into my hair and it truly does make a huge difference. You can purchase the Windle & Moodie Intense Treatment Masque here.

Exuviance Matte Perfection Gel

I have recently been trying a few products from Exuviance and I have been very impressed with each product especially the Exuviance Matte Perfection Gel. I am a primer addict and I truly do believe they make a huge difference in how my makeup goes on and stays on my face. This is the Exuviance Matte Perfection Gel which is designed to give you an instant matte finish, controls shine and minimises the appearance of pores. I love that the Matte Perfection Gel not only works as a primer but it also improves your skin at the same time, it is clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone and pore size as 77% of users reported reduced oil and shine after 4 weeks of using the Exuvaince Matte Perfection Gel. The Perfection Matte Gel can also be worn alone or over and under makeup which I love.
The Exuviance Matte Perfection Gel is perfect now that Summer is here and I couldn't of discovered it at a better time. The first day of using the product I instantly noticed a difference, usually I would have to powder at least twice during the day but in fact using this I didn't notice much shine to my T-zone and I was very impressed. I absolutely love the way my skin looks when I wear this primer, I tend to wear it under makeup as I find that's what works best for me. I love the way it applies it's a nice lightweight gel which is not sticky at all, it absorbed into my skin instantly. A little honestly goes such a long way so it should last you a good few months.
 
The Exuviance Matte Perfection did exactly what was promised and I am very impressed with this product. You can purchase the Matte Perfection here.

Four Face Masks!

  
I've recently gone a little face mask crazy, I'm obsessed with trying out new ones every week. There's nothing quite like a mini pamper session where you run a bubble bath light a candle and use your favourite face mask. Lately I've really been seeing the benefits of using face masks weekly and I cant get enough of them. I thought I'd run through my four current favourite face masks.
I had heard so many good things about the Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Face Mask and I knew I would love it. This face mask is described as an intensely moisturising, cleansing and anti-oxidising treatment, and to me that honestly sums it up perfectly. I like to use this around twice a week as I love the feeling and look of my skin after using this, I can instantly feel that my skin is hydrated and looks a lot brighter. The Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask is a great mask for both morning and evening. It also smells amazing which is always a plus.
The Oskia Renaissance Mask is designed to increase cell turnovers, boost radiance, exfoliate your skin leaving you with a smoother brighter and nourished skin. The Oskia Renaissance mask has a great blend of beauty boosting nutrients such as Passion Fruit, Grape, Lemon & Grapefruit AHAs, Papaya Enzymes, Swiss Garden Cress Liposomes, Ribose & Butterbur. I always look for products that work instantly and the Oskia Renaissance Mask does exactly that. My skin instantly looks brighter and feels  super soft to touch. I like to use this mask around once a week when I feel my skin needs an extra lift. Be sure to check out my full review on this here.
The Origins Clear Improvement Mask is packed with active charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out deep dwelling pore cloggers. You simple open your pores with warm water and then layer on the product. I tend to only apply this particular face mask to my t-zone as that's where my pores are quite bad. I love the tight feeling this face mask gives once applied, I will use it once a week if I feel my pores are quite clogged. I like that the Origins Clear Improvement Mask clears my pores and my skin is left feeling super clean I also find that any areas I may of had redness are calmed instantly. I will be reviewing this face mask fully in a separate blog post so keep an eye out for that.
The Caudalie Instant Detox Mask contains pink clay to purify, anti oxidant grape mare, papaya enzymes for exfoliation as well as essential oils to sooth and balance the skin. This face mask is designed to eliminate impurities and toxins to tighten pores and renew the skins texture. I love the smell of this mask it reminds me of being in a spa. I tend to apply this to my T-zone only as that's where I tend to be more oily. As promised the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask shrinks your pores and if used a few times a week I do believe this actually lasts for a couple of days. I leave this mask on for around 5-10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. I will be doing a full review on the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask so keep and eye out for that. 
I absolutely love my bath board from JB Wood Designs it's honestly my new obsession, I can't wait for the evenings so I can run a bath light my candles and just relax with a book. These bath boards are all hand made and you can add your own personal touches such as these tea light holders and a wine glass holder. These bath boards would also make such a lovely gift and the quality is amazing! You can purchase these bath boards from Etsy: JBWoodDesign Also be sure to follow them on Twitter: @jbwooddesigns

Candle's are an essential for me, I burn them all year round no matter how hot it may get. I love lighting my favourite candle while I have a pamper night in. This time round I burnt a candle from Etsy: CorinneTHolistic it's a purifying aromatherapy candle, which is perfect for a relaxing night in. I love the jar and the shabby chic look of this candle, it looks so pretty left on the side in my bathroom. This Purify natural soy wax candle is made with cleansing Cedarwood, Juniper Berry and Lemongrass essential oils. My bathroom is always left smelling amazing, it's a very refreshing, earthy scent and it's perfect for this time of year. Be sure to check out Corinne's range of candles on Etsy: CorinneTHolistic Website: www.corinnetaylor.co.uk

Oskia Get up & Glow Radiance, Energy & Protection Booster

Oskia has become one of my favourite skincare brands, I've tried a few of their products and each time I'm amazed! The Oskia Get Up & Glow is a radiance, energy and protection booster serum which doubles as an illuminator and can be used on it's own or on top of makeup as a highlighter.. I believe this stuff is magic! I love it! The packaging is very pretty and I love that it has a pump which always makes life a little easier. Oskia Get Up & Glow promises to brighten and even skin tone, smooth the appearance of fine lines while also providing nutrients to help rebuild cell health for long term improved skin health and function.
Get up & Glow is a lightweight revitalising and energising serum, it absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn't leave a sticky feeling behind. The first time I used this serum I noticed that a little goes a long way it spreads extremely well onto the skin so literally all you need is one pump. Now that the weather is warmer here in London I have really been enjoying applying this over a lightweight foundation it gives such a nice finish without that shimmery look. The consistency does not feel oily, I love the feeling of my skin after applying Get Up & Glow my skin feels silky smooth and refreshed. I absolutely love this product it gives me a nice glow under or over makeup.

You can purchase the Oskia Get Up & Glow 30ml here -> www.oskiaskincare.com for £64.50.
