Victoria's Secret Tease Dreamer Fragrance Review

I love sales as I can't resist a good bargain.  Recently I popped into Victoria's Secret to have a browse (that's what I always tell myself) and picked up some products from their Tease Dreamer fragrance range.   Now let me start by saying I'm not a big fan of the name, Dreamer by itself would have been fine.  The scent itself is lovely it just reminds me of holidays.  It's got that perfect balance of Coconut, Ocean and Sun.  Just putting it on makes me feel like I'm on my hols.  When I sprayed it to try it out I just knew I had to buy it and when I found out it was on sale I decided to buy the EDP 100ml for £20 from £59, Fragrance Mist 250ml for £7 from £22 and the rollerball 7ml for £7.50 (might have been £7) from £15.  I just couldn't resist. I think the sale is still on so if you are looking for a great summer scent check this one out it's fab. Leigh

QVC Tili Heatwave Beauty Box

I used to buy lots of beauty boxes, but after realising that I had a large stash of products building up I decided to give up on monthly beauty boxes and only buy boxes that contained products that I really wanted to try out. One such box that caught my eye recently was the  QVC Tili Heatwave Beauty Box . It cost £20 with free postage and packing and contains products valued at over £100. The box contains some great brands and as an added bonus this is a subscription free box, so you can just buy them whenever you fancy. I think a new box comes out every 2 months. I received the following products in the Heatwave Beauty Box: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Highlighter in the shade Sparkler - 5.6g (full size) worth £25. This is a beautiful rose gold highlighter that I will more than likely use as an eyeshadow. tweak'd by nature Restore Hydrating Treatment Balm - 100ml (full size) worth £18. This is a brand that I have never heard of, but a product that I can't wait to

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Setting Spray Watermelon and Pineapple Review

I think I have found the cutest beauty product of this summer.  I was browsing in Harvey Nichols this week and I couldn't help but find myself in the MAC section and came across the limited edition range of their great Prep + Prime Fix+ Setting Spray in 5 different Summer scents including a Watermelon version. Now anyone that knows me knows my favourite scent is Watermelon Lemonade see my post here , so there was no way I was leaving the Watermelon version behind, I also picked up the pineapple version as well as it's such a lovely scent.   I think they have only recently come out with this range and as soon as I passed the stand in Harvey Nichols I zeroed in on this range.   The scents are so fruity and smell so lovely and fresh.  There all come in fantastic packaging as well and as they are minis they are great for on the go.   I use these not only to set my makeup but also as a face mist to freshen up and cool down throughout the day and night. There are also 3 othe

elf Hydrating Face Primer Review

If you are looking for a reasonably priced face primer suitable for dry skin then look no further than the e.l.f. Hydrating Face Primer.  This primer is infused with grape, vitamins A, C & E which helps boost the complexion and hydrate your skin. This is a silicone based primer (it contains dimethicone), so there is a lot of slip to it, which is perfect for me. When I wear foundation without this primer, every dry area on my face is highlighted as the foundation just sticks to those places and I find this primer helps the foundation to glide over my skin and sits nicely without sinking into my pores. You can purchase this online here . The small size is £7.50 and the large is £12.50 (it does not state the size of the products on the website or bottle). You can also buy e.l.f. products instore or online at Superdrug . At the moment there are gift with purchase offers on both sites which I find happens pretty regularly with e.l.f. e.l.f. is an affordable skincare and makeu

A Few of My Favourite Things - Bath & Body Works Watermelon Lemonade

I thought I would post about some of my favourite things that I'm using at the moment.  I have been a really big fan of Bath & Body Works for quite a number of years since I started visiting America in my twenties.  One of the first shops (after Sephora of course) that I got addicted to was Bath & Body Works.   I love the range of products that they have and the number of different fragrances.  I always seem to have stuck to one main fragrance over the years and initially that was Japanese Cherry Blossom which I loved but I'm a fickle person when it comes to beauty and when I first caught a whiff of Watermelon Lemonade that was it, I was hooked.  It's my absolute favourite scent from B&BW and I can't get enough of the range.  It is a summer fragrance so the whole range is in stock online at the moment here . It's such a lovely light fruity fragrance that smells fabulous, it's the perfect Summer Scent.   There are a great range of products tha
