Festive Gift Ideas & Bargain Alert: Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot



Every year it's a tough choice between Benefit and Soap & Glory for my favourite festive Gift Sets. Both are usually super cute with great range but this year I think Benefit have the edge with their Sweet Shoppe range. The tin cases have been designed to look like little houses, complete with removable roof for portability, so that when you collect them (and you WILL want to collect them) it looks like a little village. Amazing.


My personal favourite amongst the Benefit range is Cheeky Sweet Spot. I picked it up last time I visited House Of Fraser and I'm in love. Not only is it packed with gorgeous blushes, the best bronzer ever, Hoola, & the now discontinued Bella Bamba but at £29.50 it's also a flippin bargain that's so ridiculous it actually made me do math. 

And then it made me make a spreadsheet to display the math because I couldn't believe just how great it was. 

Don't believe me? 


BAM £73.02!!! That's what you save when you pick up this beauty and its a saving I've thoroughly enjoyed making.

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…
