Avene Thermal Spring Water

Ive heard quite a few good things about the brand Avene, but haven't actually got any of there products, I was on Feel Unique and they had a 10% off on all products so I took advantage and brought a few things as well as this thermal spray, I don't have any thing like this so I thought it would be something a bit different in my makeup/skincare collection, I managed to get the 300ml for just £7.50, Its also available in any UK pharmacies. 

To use this simply remove the lid and spray, a refreshing cool mist of water comes out, It can be used all over your body for any reason such as cooling down, irritation, sunburn, setting makeup, after hair removal and so on... This water has a low mineral content and an almost ph balance which means it will not sting, burn or dry out the skin.

Ive used this a couple of times already, when its a really hot day I simply spray it on my face to make me feel more refreshed (its not one of them annoying sprays that squirt in your face, this is a joy to use) perfect for when your on holiday by the pool and you want to cool down while sun bathing,  I've also been using it in the morning and evening also, once I've cleansed and toned, it really helps to soothe my skin, Its now even part of my makeup routine, at the very last step ill spray it all over my face to keep my makeup in place, this is just how I use the thermal spray but there are many more uses to use this product.

I'm definitely going to get more Avene products, so expect more reviews :) and let me know any other products you like from this brand.

Top 5 Summer Nail Polishes

So today I'm doing my top 5 Summer nail polishes, who doesn't love wearing bright colours in the summer? I'm always wearing bright corals and peachy colours, it was very hard to narrow it down but here are my picks...
Barry M Nail Paint - 318 Peach Melba
This polish was one of the first ever Barry M picks, I'm nearly out of this as I used to wear it all year round, its the most gorgeous peachy colour and looks great when you have a tan, its exactly what it look like on the bottle.
Barry M Nail Paint (Silk) - 401 Blossom
Barry M always amaze me when they bring out a different range of nail polishes, this is from the 'Silk' Collection' I went for the pink shade as I actually don't have a colour like this in my collection, its so gorgeous, I have a review on this so I wont go into much detail, if you'd like to check my review on it, check it out :)
Models Own - Banana Split
I am in love with this colour, I'm not really a fan of yellow on the nails but its a lovely creamy yellow and isn't too bright, when I applied it, it actually went a tad darker than on the bottle but that didn't bother me, the shade is just gorgeous.
Models Own - Coral Reef
I got this polish in my Love me Beauty Box last month and was super happy when I got it as the colour is right up my street another bright redy/coral colour, I love the formula of models own, there so easy to apply.
Essie - Tarte Deco
Essie polishes are all so beautiful and have such a lovely range of colours, I have plenty more pastels but I love the colour orange and it looks so pretty on the nails, they stand out so much. It only needs 2 coats as its so pigmented.

Hope you enjoyed a little post on something abit different, what are your favourite polishes to wear in the summer?

Victoria Secret - Pure Seduction Fragrance Mist

Ive heard a lot about the fragrances from Victoria Secrets, I actually didn't buy mine from the shop, I got it from depop which is an app where everyone sells fashion and beauty for cheaper prices its brilliant, I had to make sure it was 100% real before buying and it was :) 

The scent is AMAZING, its some sort of fruity smell and its very strong, on the bottle it says ''red plum & freesia, I looked up the word 'fressia' and its some sort of southern african flower. Ive had quite a lot of comments on the fragrance someone thought I smelt of strawberries haha even though that isn't the smell its meant to be but hey ho. It stays on me for around 4 hours,  It comes out in a mist and comes out quite powerful so its easier to cover your body in just a few sprays.

On their website they describe this as a flirty, floral fragrance. Entice in pure seduction, a passionate romance of succulent red plum and sweet freesia. Experience the luxury of fragrance. Refreshing formula is infused with conditioning aloe Vera and calming chamomile. spray on for a sexy touch of scent.

I'll definitely have to pop into bluewater and check out loads more of there body mists and stack up. Have you got any from there range?

Love Me Beauty Box / June Edition

Its that time of the month AGAIN, when you pick what box you would like to receive this month, I picked box 3, I must admit I wasn't too keen when i first viewed which box to pick, but 2 products  did catch my eye, here's more about the products below.
Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask / £1
Theres nothing more exciting than trying a new mask, I've actually never used this brand before and i know I've seen these in Boots & Superdrug too. Its a deep cleansing mask that contains laver seaweed and crushed sea Buckthorn berries pressed together to make a peel off mask, this sounds very interesting and I'm sure it will be great for my skin.
Urban veda Purifiying exfoliating Facial Wash / £8.99
I'm actually really happy about this product, when I was subscribed to BirchBox they gave me the Blue bottle of this which was for brightening the skin and I loved it so much, this one is for a deep cleanse and helps to remove impurities and treat blackheads which I really need lol, you only need a small amount to apply over your face so this bottle is going to last forever.
Model Co in Dust / £12
Ive never heard of this make Model Co before, when I went to check the colour it wasn't my cup of tea as dark browns don't suit me, but I tried it on and its very moisturising and smooth and did stay on my lips for a good couple of hours, I liked that the lid had a little mirror so when applying lipstick on the the go you can just use the lid which I though was quite handy, Ive never seen that before.
Beauty UK Define - FX Mascara in Black / £2.99
I was so happy to get a mascara in this months box as I needed a new one, I'm loving the pink and white packaging very girly with a love heart, I do find it hard trying to find new mascaras as I love the Maybelline and Loreal ones, as I find they work best for my eyelashes as they are so short, so I look for mascaras that make my eyelashes thick and long, I'm hoping this Beauty UK does the trick.
Nyx Cosmetics in Earth £3
I love the brand Nyx, there makeup is amazing and so affordable, Ive never tried there nail polishes before so will be interesting to see how long it lasts, if it chips easily, I'm really not liking the colour as I'm more of a bright nail girl, even in the winter, but if it lasts good you never know I may buy more colours.

Overall I'm a little disappointed with this months Love Me Beauty Box for June, The only 2 products ill be using is the mask and the Exfoliating Facial wash.

What do you think of this months box?

Another cheeky Boots Haul

I'm back with a post after being away for 8 days on holiday, its been a nice little break from blogging but I'm back and ready to start again :) Yesterday I headed to boots as I had with draw symptoms of not being into boots for over a week, how sad is that? lol! I did actually need some dry shampoo so was a massive excuse to buy some makeup hehe! I haven't used any of these products before apart for the dry shampoo.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
This is my holy grail, Batiste is literally the best make ever, Its all I use, even better it comes in dark & deep brown which is perfect as I have dark hair, and with the ordinary one I wont be looking grey every time I spray it onto my hair haha.
Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed
I'm so excited to use this, I've never used a mask from Soap & Glory, and I'm seeing this around the blogging community at the moment and also the pink one too which is a deep cleansing one, but I'm in need of a good deep pore mask so I'm hoping this does the trick.
Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil
I didn't need this at all but everyone has this Brow Archery and I've seen it everywhere, so I thought why not get it and see what the hype is about? It has two ends one side is the pencil and the other is the tint, I'm not sure if ill use the tint but will definitely use the pencil side. I cannot wait to give this ago and hopefully I will like it.
Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer
I'm a sucker for a bronzer and when I saw this straight away it caught my eye, its just so pretty, another bronzer to add to my collection woops, I love that it comes in 2 shades a light and a dark brown, it also has a tiny bit of shimmer so can act as a highlighter too, this is definitely a summer essential and I cannot wait to try.

Let me know If you have used any of these products, would love to know everyones thoughts? If you would like a more in depth post on any of the products then let me know :)  I can't wait to give each product a try.
