Review: Inglot Nail Enamel 233

So, last night when having an obligatory browse in some makeup stores whilst on the way to dinner with my boy, I spotted this little beaut in Inglot. I’m like a magpie for anything glittery and nail polishes are just my thing, I own far too many. But despite my oversized nail polish collection (which lives in the fridge along with my collection of lipsticks – there are more cosmetics in there than food at times) I just had to have this in my life. The above picture shows two coats which go on smoothly and dry fairly quickly, I also put this on my toes and well, its love! The colour has a pale pink base with pink, mauve, green and orange flecks of glitter in it, making it look different in different lighting, oh so pretty. Pink glitter – let’s be honest, it’s a girly girl’s best friend and in my opinion, a perfect option for a feminine spring time look, or indeed a go to party colour all year round.

Review: Clarins Lotus Face Treatment Oil

If you watched my Current Beauty Favourites video you will have seen me mention this lovely face treatment oil by Clarins for oily/combination skin. In the video I mentioned that I would have never thought to use an oil for my face, especially seeing as I have combination skin with an oily T-Zone, however when looking for a few new bits of skincare I happened to try a sample of this and loved it.
I have been patting this into my face and neck every night for a couple of months now and it really has worked wonders for my complexion, my red patches appear more balanced and my oily T-Zone is well under control. Considering I’m living in Dubai where the heat and humidity can really play havoc with my skin, this product has helped out ten fold in keeping oil production balanced, which of course means less of those nasty spots and blackheads, hurray!
As a side note, I just have to add that this oil smells amazing and I get that oh so lovely feeling of luxury when applying it. It’s very moisturising yet soaks into the skin a treat. At £32 this is a little pricey, however Clarins provide free samples of their products so I would definitely recommend giving this a try before you buy, which is exactly what I did. If like me you hadn’t previously thought of trying a treatment oil, you may well be pleasantly surprised!

My Current Beauty Favourites

This week on my Youtube Channel I shared with you the beauty products that I’m currently in love with. I chatted about some makeup bits and bobs that I’ve been enjoying recently (including my new favourite lipstick, you know how much I love my lipsticks!) as well as my new skin care staples and some lotions and potions, along with a bit of hair care. If you’re like me and love to have a nosy into other peoples beauty stash, look no further!
If you like this video be sure to give it a thumbs up to let me know!
