A Winter Essential


So I have been super busy with school and university that blogging has not been able to fit in. Where I have been stressed and worried about deadlines and interviews , my body has been taking the fall for it.

I'm tired all the time and the weather at the moment is so cold which is never a positive. But today's post is all about a little cheap product which at the minute is a life saver.

Its Superdrug's own Lip and Cold Sore Cream.

A while ago, my lips which incredible sore and i had beeen trying all the best known product ranging from remedies to the expensive lip balms. BUt this was the only product which helped them and I have found myself going back to it every time and during the winter it has become a vital part of my night routine.

At the minute, my lips are so sore and I thought that why not write a recommendation post. LIke it says on the packaging it's for cold sores and dry cracked lips. I use it for the latter but it does really work.

The product is super cheap and I have found that it works within a day or two. It has a thick consistance but thins out once applied to your lips. Also its great hand bag size.

Its an essential for me especially at the minute as my lips are so dry.

Let me know what products you use for when you have dry chapped lips or if you have even tried this product.

Face of the Day


So I have had given myself some time from blogging during the christmas period due to having a mountain of school work as well as having a part time job.

But recently I have been more experimental with my makeup so I thought that I would show you my christmas day face. I wanted to use a red eyeshadow which I recently purchased.

However what is key with this makeup look is that there is no foundation. I was having a good skin day and I feel that no one on the internet highlights that having a good skin day doesn't need to have layers of foundation or makeup needed.

Smashbox Brow Trio 
Smashbox contour and bronze kit
Benefit Watts Up 
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer-- The tiniest amount for under my eyes
NYX Rust eyeshadow -- Wet brush and I heavily blended upwards towards the crease
Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Younique Lip liner 
MAC Mehr 

So that was my makeup for christmas day, I hope you all had a lovely christmas and enjoyed spending time with family and friends
