Lunchbreak Pick me Ups

I needed a pick me up after the week of stress last week so I had a wander to Boots and look at the lovelies I picked up....


Rimmel natural Bronze - Sun Bronze (Matte) - a good, cheap dupe for Hoola in my time of need

Collection 2000 Concealer- Great under the eyes - it illuminates and banishes bags

Batiste Dry Shampoo XXL Volume - after reading the review post by the gorge Vivianna I decided I needed this in my life - will experiment tomorrow and let you know results

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara - Black - Currently £2 off the usual price of £6.99 in Boots how could I say no?! Will trial tomorrow morning and tweet the outcome!

Have you treat yourself recently????

Arrrgghhhh SPOTS...HELP!

Does anybody have any good spot treatment advice???? 

 My chin and jawline has been covered for weeks in spots!!! I've got the full collection...blackheads (commodones for us technical geeks), pustules, little under the skin white bumps, boils, some that are scabbing over, the odd coldsore flare up......basically every type of ZIT you can imagine.  

They're all hanging out on my chin as we speak having a god damn whale of a time...me on the other hand am not having a whale of a time because these bad boys are causing me not only physical pain (so sore!) but mental discomfort as they look awful! 

WHY WHY WHY are they not clearing up?!?! : (

Latest in Beauty : Festive Stocking

The second offering of Latest in Beauty's Themed boxes has just been released and I ordered mine straight away!

I've gushed about Latest in Beauty before including one of my £1.00 monthly box reviews here and I also purchased their first Themed Box - the CEW Winners Box - in which was a 15ml size of Clarins Face Moisturiser plus other great branded goodies for £4.95 free P&P...thats right girls you even get change from a fiver!

These Themed boxes come around every 2 months I would say and since I received and ordered my first themed box (Late september?) I seriously couldn't wait for the Second Box "Festive Stocking",  to be released (hence the overexcited, some may say stalker-esque, tweets to @Latestinbeauty!).

The box arrived today and just take a peek at the goodies I received!:

In the box ( I must reiterate all for 5p short of a fiver!) were

  • THIS WORKS No Wrinkles Extreme Moisturiser 15ml
  • DP LONDON Firming & Smoothing body cream  50ml
  • RICHARD WARD COUTURE Hair optimiser Style Reviver  50ml
  • DOVE Express Treatment Conditioner 50ml
  • ORLA KEILY Eau de parfum 2ml vial
  • YARDLEY English Rose Refreshing Tissue

So in the box of treat we have covered, skincare, bodycare, haircare, and fragrance, what a bargain!

I may even buy some more of these boxes as stocking fillers for my family and friends (the lucky things them)

Has anyone else used Latest in Beauty yet? what are your thoughts?

Reviews on teh above products to come soon!

Love Leigh Leigh
p.s can't wait to order my next £1.00 monthly box - 8 more days to go!

Feel Unique Beauty Box: November's Treats!

I MUST learn not to peep at reviews of the Beauty Box before I receive mine - I'd love the surprise but I get too excited and may burst in anticipation at what is inside the box that month.

Yesterday at work I took a sneaky peak at the lovely Katie's review of Novembers Box Here - From her great review I was just so excited to receive mine and it came this morning -wooohooo!!

And may I say it is Amazeballs! - (sorry)

The theme this month is Primed to Party and the products and brands are excellent. (See proof in pic!)

Contents include: 

Prada: CANDY Eau de Parfum 1.5ml spray vial.  

Xen-Tan: Deep Bronze Luxe

Schwarzkopf Professional: OSiS+ Dust It Mattifying Powder

Goldwell: DualSenses Rich Repair 60 second Treatment

Emma Hardie: Amazing Face: Natural Lift & Sculpt Moringa Cleansing Balm 

Emma Hardie: Dual Action Professional Cleansing Cloth

Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder - 

so that's...Prada, Xen tan, Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Emma Hardie and Bellapierre all for £9.95 ....WOW.

I cant wait to try all these delicious products, especially the Luxury Emma Hardie Cleanser along with Muslin Cloth.  I've had a quick spritz of the Prada CANDY and its a really fun, girly sweet smelling Perfume ...look out for my reviews on the other products when I use them!
