A Moisturiser That's Thicker Than My Thighs

What's In It For Me? body cream

If you follow me on Instagram (you should, shameless plug @VLBeautyx), you would have seen on my story that I was very kindly sent a package containing this body cream from the up and coming brand 'whats in it for me?'. I'd never heard of this brand before but I was drawn in by their brand design. They use a simple white background and text combination which creates a clean, fresh look for their packaging. The design is simple, yet effective, with the natural ingredients being clearly displayed on the front of the packaging. I love how theres no hidden agenda with this brand/product, it just tells you upfront what it contains and what it does which really appeals and sells to me.

The product itself is very thick and rich, as you can probably see in the photograph below, yet it sinks into your skin really quickly and doesn't leave you feeling sticky after, which is one of my pet peeves when it comes to applying body lotions and creams. As I mention in a lot of my skincare posts, I do have very sensitive skin and often do get allergic reactions from various different products so I was apprehensive about trying this, as I am with all new skincare products. I've not had one single reaction to this body cream which is amazing as usually body creams can make me feel a little itchy for a while after applying them, so because of that, I am raving about this product!

This product can be found in Harvey NicholsFragrance Direct or on the brands Instagram site. The product retails at £11.50 on Harvey Nichols's website, or £10 on the Fragrance Direct site, so it's a no brainer- go for fragrance direct! I must admit that this body cream is on the more pricer side and I wouldn't normally spend that much on a body cream, because I'm a tight student lol. Although, the tub is 200ml so it contains a lot of product and as it is so thick, a little goes a really long way so it should last me a long time, in comparison to other body creams. All things considered, I would spend £10/£11 for this particular body cream, as to me it feels so luxurious and does a great job at moisturising my skin. It also feels like a real treat to be applying this product onto my skin and I love how my skin is soaking up all the natural ingredients.

September Favourites

September Favourites

Another month, another favourites!

 I couldn't have wished for a better September! I started back at University which meant I was reunited with my friends again and I had a perfect 21st birthday! I loved a lot of things throughout last month so it was hard to only pick a few I must admit! 
I hope you all have a lovely October. Roll on Halloween!

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye

 For those of you who don't know, I am a huge lover of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night repair skincare range (click here for a review of the night serum). This eye gel is no exception. This product has such a lightweight formula that it absorbs into the skin really well and instantly hydrates my eye area, which is what I like to use it for. Unfortunately, I have quite bad undereye circles which never seem to get any smaller no matter how much I sleep, so I've started blaming my genetics for them (thanks a lot mum and dad!) but this eye gel cream really helps to brighten up my eye area and help me look more awake so I often use it in the mornings, as well as at night. 

New Look Matte Lipstick in Mocha

New Look Matte Lipstick in Mocha

This was a random purchase and this shade in particular is something very different from what I am used to, but I've been loving wearing this on my lips, especially with 'Hoola' by benefit lipgloss over the top of it. This is a very brown toned lipstick which I don't usually go for like I said, but I thought I would give it a try and these lipsticks are really inexpensive and I think the rose gold packaging of these New Look lipsticks are gorgeous. I can't say that this is my go-to lipstick of choice as it is very 'out there' so I have to be in the right mood for it, or be wearing a certain kind of outfit but especially as it's recently been 'freshers' at my uni, I find that this lipstick is the perfect thing to spice up a makeup look and make a statement for a night out.

Makeup Revolution Flawless Ultra Eyeshadows Palette

 Makeup Revolution Flawless Ultra Eyeshadows Palette

I picked this up as a whim a few weeks ago because I was on the hunt for a very travel friendly eyeshadow palette, as my beloved Morphe palettes are relatively big in size, despite how thin they are, but I thought this one from Makeup Revolution was very portable for little trips away. This palette comes with 32 shades for £8 which is incredible value for money. I find myself reaching for this palette on a daily basis as it has so many neutral matte and shimmer colours to choose from, all with great colour pay off. I am finding myself often creating a pink-toned shimmer look regularly, as it is really easy to create with this palette and looks very pretty and feminine on the eye.
  
The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances

The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances

Back in July I mentioned this book on my 'summer reading list' post (read here) and outlined the blurb of this book and my initial thoughts towards it. Needless to say, I am very impressed with this book and highly recommend it to those of you who enjoy a good thriller book. I was so gripped with this book which shows as I managed to read this in 3 days which is good for me as this book has over 450 pages! I don't want to ruin it for any of you but it certainly wasn't what I expected in terms of the 'girlfriend' as it was even more 'messed up' which made for a very exciting read!

I couldn't possibly do a monthly favourites post without including my new all-time-favoruite! Last month I treated myself to a new MacBook Air as my HP laptop was getting old and I really wanted a new laptop ready to start my third year of university this month. At the time that I purchased this, Apple had a student offer on which meant that as I bought a MacBook, I got a free pair of Beats solo wireless headphones worth £250, which as you can imagine I am thrilled about! I am absolute loving my new MacBook, despite it taking me until now to fully get used to it! It's my pride and joy, which it should be considering how much it cost me haha! 

Thanks for reading!
Love,
