Tria Hair Removal Laser

She's already big in the US but for those of you who don't know, here's a quick introduction.

She's the first hand-held laser for at-home use and works by using a concentrated, red diode beam that deactivates the follicles that produce hair. With Tria, you can be free from endless shaving and waxing with up to 70% less hair growth up to 2 uses.

I've been trying the laser for a few weeks now and I'm really enjoying how easy it is to use. You simply place the it on the area you wish to treat (cheek line downwards), wait for the beep and move to the next area, making sure to overlap slightly. I haven't seen much of a difference yet but I will be sure to report back with a full review in a few months when I can really see a difference.

Have you tried the Tria?

Autumn Nails

I have been non-stop wearing this By Terry Nail Laque in 'Fire Game'. At £21 they're not the cheapest around but I can justify this, promise. 

There's no need for a base coat as they have a conditioning and strengthening formula making them like a treatment for the nails, they don't stain, they have an opaque finish in two coats, are long lasting, rapid drying plus the whole range is full of gorgeous plums and burgundies too. 

I picked mine up from Space NK and will definitely be trying out some other shades. Have you tried any of the By Terry polishes?

Review: Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm

So to make this review a little more relatable to yourself, I will start just by saying that my skin type is the typical combination type, quite often on the sensitive side and prone to the odd eczema flare up. This cleanser however, can be used for all skin types - hooray!

After using up my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish I wanted to find something a bit different and try a balm.  I bought this beauty from Space NK for £34 and I can't say I've used anything quite like this before. 

I massage Amazing Face on to dry skin, turning into a soothing oil and lightly buff off with a clean, hot flannel which I find much gentler yet has more grip than a muslin cloth. The scent is also lovely and relaxing with that kind of spa -y smell.

I must have been using this for about two months now and it's everything I'd hoped it to be. Since using it, even the first few times, my skin has changed dramatically! Dryer areas of my face (even lips) feel nourished and more 'plump' while oilier areas are balanced and kept away for the day. It also sped up the healing process (massively) of some eczema around my eyes and mouth which I am thrilled about. Overall, my skin feels clear and fresh and using this balm has changed my chore of a routine into a delight!

Incase you couldn't tell, I highly recommend this product and please do not be put off by the fact it can be oily as like attracts like and it will only make your skin feel clean and lovely!

Let me know if any of you have used this, I would love to hear your thoughts!

A Spa Bargain

So because I suffer from Scoliosis, I do tend to treat myself with a massage every now and then. The last time I went, I noticed that the massage oil being used smelt more coconut-ty than before. When I asked what had changed, I was handed this little Sainsbury's number!

A solid, pure 100% coconut oil that melts luxuriously into your skin, hair or anywhere you feel needs some moisture. It is essentially a cooking oil and the smell of it in the tub itself does smell slightly food-like (if that makes sense) but I just can't get enough of using this at night after a bath, waking up and having the softest skin, it goes on like a dream.

You'll find this (actually rather large) tub, in the 'cooking oil' section for around £6 which I think is COMPLETELY worth the money - if you can get over the initial smell, I promise once it's on it's lovely!

Are there any other household beauty products I should know about?

Project 10 Pan

L-R: Lush Dream Cream, Origins United State Toner, YSL Faux Cils, Lanolips 101 Ointment, MAC Studio Sculpt, MAC, Creme Cup, No. 17 Beehive, YSL Touche Eclat, Collection 2000 Concealer, Clinique Brow Pencil.

So I've been thinking about taking on 'Project 10 Pan' for a while now, when I noticed quite a few products, shoved to the back of my draw because they've been replaced with newer, shinier things. Incase you're not familiar with 'Project 10 Pan' basically, I am going to (try to) use up ten, full size products before making any more makeup purchases, difficult I know. On the way, I will be reviewing each of them letting you know my thoughts on whether I would repurchase, recommend etc. Wish me luck!

I picked this polish up from my local Topshop when I actually went in looking for another in 'Nice n Neutral', a gorgeous nude that I spotted on Jessica's blog. This shade is called 'Domestic Goddess' which I think quite suits me (err...). It's coming up quite true to colour in the photo and it costs a reasonable £5, 'Domestic Goddess' is definitely one I love for everyday use as I find it goes with almost any outfit without you looking too 'matched', if that make sense?

Any other Topshop polishes worth a try?

Review: Chanel Inimitable Mascara

Hi everyone, hope you're all well :)
  So, I was given this little sample size of the mascara when purchasing Chanel's Mat Lumire foundation and to be honest with you I didn't really have high hopes. However, I have been SO pleasently suprised by this mascara and as it's fairly new, I decided that it needed some praise!

 When it comes to lashes, I like mine to look as thick and as long as possible even if it means a bit of clumping! However, this mascara manges to do both beautifully and still keep them somewhat 'natural' looking. The staying power is also perfect. I've managed to get through 12 hour shifts as a waitress and have hardly any flaking or lack of curl! It's hard to decide whether this knocks the YSL Faux Cils off my topspot but it definitly gives it a good run for its money! Speaking of which, I'm pretty sure this retails at around the £20 mark so maybe one to pop on your christmas list (I know I have).

What's your favourite high end mascara?
