Mini Beauty Haul from

L-R. *Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream 30ml – RRP £14, Saveonmakeup price £5.99. *Katy Perry ‘Purr’ 100ml Eau De Toilette – RRP £46. Saveonmakeup price £11.99 (usnused tester). *Calvin Klein Lipstick – RRP £13.50. Saveonmakeup price £1.99.

Recently I received some bits from, a great website that provides cosmetics and perfumes for a fraction of the price that you would normally buy them at.
The bits that I got include the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, I like this for travelling as it’s a great multi purpose moisturiser which I personally use as both an intensive hand moisturiser and as a lip balm. I wouldn’t personally use this on my face as it does have a very thick, almost balm like consistency, although if you’re prone to dry skin this may work well for you on the face. I got the 30ml version, which is great for throwing into my handbag for on the go use.
The second item that I got was the Katy Perry ‘Purr’ 100ml Eau De Toilette. This is a light and fresh yet sweet scent that is great for everyday use. This one is an unused tester, these are great if you're looking to save a lot on your perfume. It’s exactly the same product, the only difference is that it doesn’t come with a snazzy box -  fine by me!
The third item is a Calvin Klein lipstick in the shade ‘FirstKiss’, which is a lovely muted berry shade. I love pairing this with a natural base and a slick of mascara for a minimal everyday look.
The prices of the products on the website are fantastic, I’d definitely recommend taking a look at their cosmetics and fragrances if you’re looking to save some money!

Review: Michael Todd Soniclear Antimicrobial Sonic Cleansing System

 *Soniclear Antimicrobial Sonic Cleansing System $149 (£97.62)

If you’re a regular reader of my blog or if you watch my YouTube channel you will be aware that over the past few months I have become a big fan of the face brush.
Recently I’ve been using the Soniclear Antimicrobial Sonic Cleansing System by Michael Todd.
Firstly, I love the fact that the brush is antimicrobial, this limits the growth of bacteria on the brush, meaning that it will stay fresher for longer.
The brush is also cordless and waterproof so you can use it anywhere you like. I like to use it after removing my makeup at the end of the day.
The brush provides 300+ micro-massage movements per second (impressive!) and It also has six settings including three for the face and three for the body, which is fantastic as you can choose exactly which one works for your skin depending on how sensitive it is and how deep a cleanse you would like.
The device claims to provide 6 times deeper cleansing than just using your hands, I can definitely see a marked improvement in the texture of my skin since using this face brush. It feels smoother, my pores are more refined and I get fewer blemishes.
The device comes with a standard brush head for normal cleansing, an extra large brush head for your body (bonus!) and a charging cradle.
To use it, all you need to do is apply your cleanser to your face and then use the brush in circular motions after you have chosen your preferred setting. An in built timer lets you know when to move onto each part of your face and the device will shut off after one minute.
If you’re thinking of trying out a face brush for the first time, I’d totally recommend the Soniclear. It’s so easy to use and as I mentioned, I have certainly noticed a marked improvement in my skin texture, it feels so much cleaner and more radiant after each use.
Have you tried using a face brush before? If so, what are your thoughts on them?

Loose Boho Curls Hair Tutorial

I love the boho chic look for springtime, there’s just something so pretty and feminine about a head full of loose, natural looking curls.
In this tutorial I show you how I achieve this look using the Irresistible Me Saphire 8 in 1 curling wand. As the name suggests, it comes with eight detachable wands, which is great for achieving all different types of curls. In order to achieve this look I used a wand that is tapered to provide a slightly wavy curl.
Incase you’re interested, I have a 10% discount code for you which you can use on their website. Just use the code ‘IrresistibleKate’ at the checkout.
Now, get comfy and enjoy the video!
