*Here is a review of some scrumptious products I was lucky enough to review.
Derma V10 Body butters in Mango and Vanilla
Available from Home Bargains.
Available from Home Bargains.
These body butters smell divine! I haven't stopped using them, hence why there isn't much product in the pictures below! They are rich and buttery, leaving the skin feeling soft and supple. Both smell exactly like the scent they say they are, vanilla smells sweet, mango smells like a Caribbean island! The scents last so long, I get comments whenever I wear them.
Derma V10 Rescue Oil
£1.00 from Poundland!
Derma V10 Rescue Oil states is an oil to help with ageing, scar tissue, blemishes, treatment and prevention of stretch marks, after sun treatment, before, during and after pregnancy, and dry dehydrated skin.
The oil can be massaged in or used as a bath oil, it contains Peach Kernel, Evening Primrose and Almond oil to name a few of the ingredients.
The oil has a nutty scent, it sinks into the skin without leaving an residue, I have a scar on my right arm and have used this oil on that area, it leaves my skin super soft. I haven't noticed it reduce but then I have had the scar for over 20 years! I love using this on my dry areas, it certainly moisturises on a deep level so if you suffer from dry skin this would be amazing for you. I would say this product is great for a skin treatment.
Have you tried any of these?

A fun outfit with a funky print twist. A bralet from New Look under a ASOS vest top teamed with pink bow New Look shoes and Next jeans, love this combo! If like me you don't feel confident to rock the crop top or bralet alone then grab a vest top to fling over the top with jeans for a relaxed feel.

Here is my wishlist for the fabulous Illamasqua, a brand that I am still trying out but am keen to try more!
Glamore Lipstick in Rosepout
A gorgeous nude shade, they have released 7 new shades, I would love all of them but this one seems to stand out for me.
Illamasqua rich liquid foundation
A foundation that I hear a lot of great things about, one of the many foundations on my wishlist.
Powder blush in Hussy, a matte pink shade, I do love a pink blusher!
Fatale Palette, four beautiful shades that would make a dramatic eye look!
So this is my current Illamasqua wishlist, what is yours?

Here is a review featuring one of my favourite beauty brands- theBalm.
theBalm is a fabulous company founded by Marissa Shipman in 2004, today I am featuring Shady Lady eyeshadow palette.
The palette contains 9 eyeshadows which are great for both day and night, the shades are a mixture of shimmer and matte, from taupe to a deep aubergine. The palette is a handy size for the handbag with a great mirror to allow you to add some on the go with each eyeshadow having a name and description of how you can use the shadow, so the top 3 shades in the far left corner are seen as "shadow/liner" and the rest are seen as "shadow" so its showing you that you can use all shades as an eyeshadow with some as eyeliner too, so a two in one product.
Here is a list of the eyeshadows and swatches below.
Caught in the act Courtney
Just this once Jamie
Here I am wearing luscious lani as the base with mischievous marissa in the crease and just this one Jamie for the edge of my eyelid.
The pigmentation is beautiful, I love the shades, I think I will need to wear a primer as I found that the shadow did slide away after a while. The eyeshadow looked gorgeous on, wish the pictures showed the colours more!
Have you tried this palette?
