♥ My Beauty essentials

These are my beauty essentials.. The things I buy over and over again.. If I have these I basically don't need anything else :)

Do you use any of these?

Bronzer from the Bodyshop and Isadora. Bought the Bodyshop because the Isadora one was running out and I can't by it in England. The basically look the same on.

Eyebrow pen from Rimmel (I use any pen though, but I like that this one has a brush on it)

Sleek pout paint... and lipbrush from Elf..

Face mist.. Im not really one to use powder on my face (well I dont even own a powder).. my face isn't oily and its not dry. So I use this facemist because it smells nice (lol) and to give my face a glow :) Use this after the gym aswell!

Nail oil !! Only thing that works for my nails.. this is an old container, just fill it up with any oil! Africas best herbal oil works really well..

ANY lipbalm.. Currently loving the ones I make myself!!

Body oil!
The one to the LEFT (had to use an old photo.. I actually googled it and my blog was the first blog to show up, how ironic?)
Africas Best Herbal Oil- Contains natural oils only+perfume, read here
The reason I wouldn't recommend Hot Six Oils is because it contains Silicones..

The other one I recommend is Palmers Cocoa Butter Body Oil :)


This really is my absolute favourite mascara! Better than any normal brand like loreal, Clarins etc etc.
Its £2 in Boots.. and the brush doesn't look great, I think it's the formula, it feels like a "lash build" mascara.. they just get longer and longer..

Gentle nail remover pads..

These are the superdrug ones.. I know theres another brand (that bright pink one, you know what Im talking about).. why I prefer these is because it makes your nails really conditioned? They feel OILY when you are finished instead of dried out. And the nail polishes comes off easily.
Oh, and it smells GREAT.

What are your beauty favourites??

♥ Weed hand cream?

Weed hand cream?

So I've tried the "Hemp hand protector" from the Bodyshop a couple of times in the shop, but I've never bought it.

I was in the shop the other day with my 8 year old sister, she has reaally dry hands, almost like eczema and shes really really fuzzy with what she likes, she tried it in the shop and the next day she told me her hands are soo soft. So I bought it for her.. three days later her hands are all "healed", the were soo dry before and had loads of dry patches, from just using it once a day they've disappeared.

Personally I don't really tell a difference when I'm using different products.. its sucks.. thats why I never do reviews lol.

But if someone has a problem with really dry hands- this one works!

The Bodyshop Hemp Hand Protector- Oh yeah, it contains cannabis seed oil! Hence the name..Never seen that in a cream before but it seems to work.

The formula is quite thick as you can see.. it has a bit of a "strange" smell, doesn't bother me but if you want it to smell amazing, it doesnt.

6 first ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Myristate, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis Seed Oil (castor oil)

My mum also bought this gift set of that cream and two others. I've tried the almond one and it's a lot thinner.. so if you want a lighter one that one is probably for you.. the rose one has SPF 15.

This is the hand cream I'm using right now, its really really light, almost runny. It smells great and does the job! It's also meant to have "better" ingredients.  But from looking at them I can't really see how these are better than the others..You can buy this from a health shop like Holland & Barett.

6 first ingredients: Water, Soybean Oil, Capric Triglycerid, Alcohol, Shea Butter, Glycerin

I haven't seen anyone write about any of these...
Have any of you tried them?

So my mum is here visiting and she had these two nail polish with her.. of course I had to try them. Haven't heard of either brand before but they both came out nice.

I was Not lying in the nailpolish tag (lol), I never wear black polish, but I decided to try since it's got glitter in it.

Two coats..

♥ Make your own lipstick

I've got this old lipgloss/listick palette that I absolutely love, the colours are really pigmented, but they don't come out dry like some lipsticks can.. but I've used up all the pinks since I usually wear pink on my lips.

Then I've got one Mac lipstick (bright pink) that I really HATE, it makes my lips look chapped lol and it really doesn't look nice at all..

So I decided to mix them together and make the perfect lipstick ;)

I added Shea Butter and a tiny bit of Olive Wax to make the right consistency (you can use Vaseline, but I dont use mineral oil) and it came out great.

Oh you can also add peppermint oil for a soothing feel on your lips and nice smell (I forgot to do this lol)

The result

A way too big tin from Superdrug.

Put a bowl like this in a pot of boling water (lower it when you put the bowl in)

 The old lipstick/lipgloss palette

 So I DID take pictures before I used everything, only thing is I didn't have the memory card in it was in my Macbook, and in my new camers it doesn't save in an internal memory (!?) so they were all gone by the time I finished haha.

Bright pink Mac Lipstick, Light pink Bodyshop lipstick, Medium pink shimmery Collection 2000 lipstick.

 I added a tiny bit of olive Wax and almost a teaspoon of Shea Butter

 Have you tried this, and what do you think of the result?
