Face time



Once a week I use a face mask to try and get my face to stop being so spotty and my skin being dry. Combination skin at its worst!

The one I reach for more often is now the Waterfall spa instant vitality mask. I'm fortunate enough to live around the corner from this spa and they send me products to review (only on their website) - so I did not pay for this product - I'm getting this out there now so you all know. I have had other products from them, which are really good, but because they have been provided for me i've always been a bit wary of writing about them on here. However, I really, really love this face mask so thought it deserved as much of a shout out as other products i've purchased myself.


Phew, i'm glad we got that out of the way :) ...so, the mask itself is really creamy and I usually try and steer clear of this. But this one is different, when you spread it around your face it instantly feels nourished, non sticky and doesn't feel tight - which is something I've come to hate with facemasks. Leave it on for the usual 10-15 minutes et voila! Seriously moisturised, glowing skin.

I get redness around my nose and cheeks which is really noticeable when i'm not wearing make up but when I take this mask off you can barely notice it and my skin feels great. I also have the joy of psoriasis (not so much on my face) but my skin is so dry, the mask doesn't irritate it and really kicks the moisture levels up a couple of gears!

All in all I love this product - so the kick in the teeth is it's 25 big ones! Apart from that I can't fault this anywhere else!

  1. My skin is like that too, it's really sensitive, dry and I'm prone to break outs! £25 is a bit pricy but worth it if it works I guess. I've just started using Elemis which is really good, that's pretty expensive too!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is
