Quick Review: M&S Autograph Ultimate Wear Nail Colour in Purple.

Left taken under halogen lights at night after application | Right taken under natural day light after one week.

Design: This is a lovely creamy purple with slight raspberry tones in natural light.

Use: Two coats till opaque, I gave it a third for luck. Dries well, although a good top coat will help reduce scoring and prevent chipping.

Verdict: I really love this polish, I've worn it for a week now and despite my flaky nails coming apart beneath it its still holding up amazingly well,! As you can see from the above picture theres only minimal tip wear (did I mention I've been wearing this for a week? That's ridiculously good!). I've had some really lovely comments whilst wearing this and am reluctant to take it off. Definitely going into regular wear pile*!

Available exclusively at Marks & Spencers from what I can tell so why not treat yourself next time you're getting your £10 dinner for two!

*Probably best to note that my regular wear pile is getting so big its hard to wear anything too regularly lol


*This Sample was sent for review but all thoughts are my own*

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 Molec…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…

The eternal search for good hair: Josh Wood Colour Hair Oil

It may come as a surprise after decades of dying my hair and committing myself to metre colour (if not my natural colour) that I am not really a hair person. I don't have the patience to spend a long time making sure that it is perfectly styled every day. There's just so much work to take this natural fluffy curly frizzy mess that once it is finally done I really can't face it for another week (or at least 3 or 4 days). It is a moment of wonder when I finally find a product that just works for me.

I've been doing some reading and I came across a blog - forgive me but I cannot for the life of me find it to link here - talking about the benefits of blowdrying your hair immediately. It may sound counter productive given all the talk of protecting your hair from heat and I'm pretty sure that I'm not alone is saying that it would intentionally let my hair air dry for a set amount of time in order to reduce the amount of heat needed. Well this article completely tur…
