Beauty Box Loves

So here it is as promised some of my favourite goodies from both my Glossybox & Boudoir Prive/Joliebox

Permanently in my makeup bag are Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve (this is an amazing salve which clears up dry lips ridiculously fast), New CID I-gloss in Babydoll (Always a conversation starter when I whip this badboy out because it lights up! Plus it has just the right consistency for my liking), Joliebox Concealer Brush (My go to concealer brush, its a bitch to clean because its quite firm and I worry about ruining it but other than that I love it!)

I would never have bought these items themselves but have always wanted to try each brand so obviously I was happy when I received them.

These guys have made it into my regular bathing/hair routine. I will most certainly be repurchasing all of them!

Well we all knew I would love receiving Nail Polish didn't we? In fact I was always a bit gutted that there wasn't a polish in every box! Nail Polish Beauty boxes... A new concept maybe?   

Not pictured because they bit the dust a long time ago but have made a lasting impression are:

Murad: Time Release Blemish Cleanser
Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brush
Korres Quince Body Butter
Green People Fruitful Nights (seriously wish this was cheaper so I could buy it full size)
HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette (ok I do need to use this so I saved it and gave it to Michelle on her recent visit. It is amazing on her!)
Robert Piquet Calypso perfume
Stila Smudge Proof Eyeliner
Monu Recovery Balm (Amazing as a makeup primer I definitely have noticed a decline in my skin since this ran out recently)
Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment

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
