Barry M Pastel nails

The latest nail trend to hit the shelves are Barry M's Textured Polishes. They're just like regular creme polishes filled with tiny 'Gritty' bits, to give a bumpy feel and are a matte finish.

They apply like a dream and are fast drying. Also easily Removed. I was slightly concerned they'd be a nightmare to take off as the glitter polishes, but they swipe off very easily with nail polish remover.

This is Ridley Road, a lovely bright Mint colour, perfect for Spring on Fingers & Toes.

This is probably my favourite of the four, It's a very creamy pastel pink called Kingsland Road, very pretty for Spring & would look great with a tan in Summer.

Station Road is a yellow polish, It's very bright and just not a colour that I can wear with my skin tone as I'm too pale, so this would have to be my least favourite, but it is a lovely yellow as some can look almost dirty.

Atlantic Road, Is a gorgeous powdery pastel blue which i think would suit any skin tone perfectly.

I think this collection is a great one to have for Spring & Summer is has a perfect mix of shades to suit everyone, the only thing i would of changed was maybe add a lilac shade?

Are you a pastel or a Neon fan?

Viviscal Hair Filler Fibres

I have had PCOS for about 14 Years, But since I had my daughter my hair has gone thinner & quite dry, i have to be careful when styling my hair as parts are finer than others, luckily my hair is naturally light brown/blonde so isn't as noticable as it would with someone with dark brown/black hair.

I use intensive conditioners, take supplements to try & improve it's condition. When i saw that Viviscal were requesting Bloggers to test out their Viviscal Hair Filler Fibres*, I decided to get in touch.

I requested mine in Blonde, it is a pretty good match, I don't know what I was expecting it to look like but it is a powder rather than fibres.

You literally just sprinkle it into your roots & style your hair as usual, giving you instant thicker looking hair. As i don't have any bald patches or area's you can clearly see my scalp, I didn't have dramatic results, but i did notice an improvement & was happy with my results. 

It is Wind & Rain proof, so no running, staining or blowing away!

Label.m Warming Oil Treatment

Still on the journey for pefect hair i bring you..... A relaxing warm oil massage. Label.m Warming Oil Treatment* is a self heating oil which boosts circulation and soothes the scalp that cools during rinsing. Encourages healthy hair growth and conditions hair with vital moisture.
I've been using this on my scalp and it's worked wonders. I was a little apprehensive to start with as it's an oil and my hair has a tendency of getting greasy at the roots. But it worked really well, It didn't leave a greasy/oily film and rinsed out with ease. 

I've used this treatment twice now and noticed an improvement from the first treatment, but an even better improvement from the second treatment. You massage the oil into the scalp for a minute and you soon feel the warmth on your scalp, I loved this sensation and it felt like I was really giving my scalp a deep conditioning treat.

Hair oils have certainly come a long way since my teenage years waiting with my V05 hair oil heating in the sink with warm water for 5 minutes & then running to the shower before it went cold again!

Bourjois Little round pots of Blush

These blushes are in cute pretty little pot's & smell delicious! I couldn't resist them in their Paris packaging.

We have Rose Ambrè it is pinkish red in color with a slight hint of peach, Rose De Jaspe is a bubblegum pink with gold shimmer, Rose D'or is a perfect golden peachy pink, Lilas D'or is a light mauve with golden shimmer, Ambre D'or is a peachy coral blush with gold shimmer, they are all slightly shimmery & give off a lovely sheen on the skin.

The come in a little plastic pot with a small brush & a mirror in the lid, very handy for popping into your bag for a retouch or night out.

The Blushes are baked so give a lovely colour & are finely milled so are very easy to apply, they have also been compared to Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, they are made by the same company so maybe there is some truth in it? But these little pot's are much much cheaper!

BioDerma Sèbium Pore Refiner

As you are all aware of my love for BioDerma Micellaire Water, I was very excited to hear that the brand had decided to start trading in the UK making it 100 times easier to get my hands on their products. I have Combination skin with a slightly oily T-Zone which can sometimes be a problem with my Make up staying put!
It says to Apply Sébium Pore Refiner* once or twice a day, on its own or before applying your skincare cream, either on the T zone (chin-nose & forehead) for combination skin, or all over the face for skin with an oily tendency. It is an excellent base to facilitate an even application of make-up as it gives a great matte, velvety finish once applied.
My Make up stayed on & i didn't have a shiny forehead at the end of the day like i usually do.
What BioDerma Say..

 An excess of sebum, stress, smoking, pollution... so many factors are responsible for the dilation and déformation of pores. An expert in cutaneous biology, BIODERMA research has innovated and developed Sébium Pore Refiner.

 This correcting concentrate improves the appearance of the skin: its texture is more refined, more regular and clearer, and the pores are closed and less visible.

 The exclusive patented Fluidactiv® complex maintains the quality of the sebum, thus preventing obstruction of the pores.

 An astringent dermatological active agent refines the skin texture and the antioxidant agents preserve its natural radiance.

 The light, liquid formula of Sébium Pore Refiner instantly melts into the skin and leaves a pleasant velvety finish.

Upto now i am very impressed with this product, It has definately improved the life of my foundations, i look forward to trying more from the BioDerma range now it is easily accessable in the UK!

Have you tried anything from the brand yet?
