Leaving on a Jet plane.

Phew! What a couple of months it's been. I've done 2, count it, TWO! Full plays in 2 months on top of my 9-5 and girls let me tell you I am pure tired. So what better way to celebrate a week off work than a trip to ole London Town for this weekends IMATS! 
After last year I can tell you I'm very excited and much more prepared for my IMATS experience. We are going to be a little less "deer in makeup wielding headlights" and a little more... Well just more lol. We're actually going to make it to some of the lectures & classes this time and we've given ourselves an extra day in the city to do some standard touristy stuff (no spoilers). 
Ahead of our flight tonight I'm in full holiday beauty prep mode. I'm primping, preening & de-fuzzing to within an inch of my life. Part of this exercise involves trying out some of the new Superdrug face masks currently on offer at 4 for £3. They're definitely trying to edge in on the Montagne Jeunesse market here, time will tell if they're successful. 
Also taking part in my regime is The Karités Hair Mask jam packed full of moisturising Shea goodness. I love this mask. It's £1.50 from Primark of all places! You get tonnes of product & it really gives a lot of moisture without going greasy. 
As you can see from the obligatory Sally Hansen still I'm also giving myself a wee manicure. I'm currently using their growth formula as a base coat as I hate my newly short nails & am desperately trying to grow out these flaws in order to be able to keep them long & show them off. It's a long term commitment but I'm determined. 
So that's my pre-holiday/event routine. I don't fake tan because, ugh, effort. But it's nice to feel a wee bit pampered before going away. 
Stay tuned to my Instagram, Twitter & Vine (all @Faeribex) & the same for @bexberry, find her over at www.bexberry.com, as i'm sure we'll be documenting every second in some form or another! We'll also be posting Hauls, FOTDs, OOTDs & general antics! Aren't you excited? I certainly am.

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…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…
