Today I want to talk about two items that are absolute essentials in my make up bag, which I find myself repurchasing as soon as they seem like they’re getting low as I just cannot bear to go without them. Yet, neither has had a proper review on my blog before! So I decided to create a new series for items I find myself repurchasing every time without fail.

As in reviews of two eyeliners from the brand Seventeen, not seventeen reviews of different eyeliners! That would be a pretty long post… Both of these eyeliners I got in a gift set in the January sale as featured in my Christmas Beauty Haul. The set contained four eyeliners for only £6.
This is the first item I’ve reviewed from my recent French Beauty Haul, I haven’t gotten round to trying out all of the items yet, but this is by far my favourite out of the ones I have.
Sticking with my previous post’s rather overwhelming hair care theme, I thought I would review the current sulphate free shampoo that I have been using. It is, of course, the much loved and reviewed Liz Earle Botanical Shine Shampoo, which is £10 for 200ml and definitely the most I have spent on one shampoo.
The unusual thing about the Liz Earle shampoo range is that this is it! Just the one shampoo and a conditioner, which wasn’t available at the time. I think it takes a lot of confidence in your product to only sell one product for all hair types, but it is because it is made from natural ingredients, which are great for your hair. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t people out there who wouldn’t like this product, but from what I’ve seen of online reviews, they are few and far between.

As I was moving house, I have made a big effort to use up my half empty products to save on space. I was pretty successful so have broken this up into a couple of sections to make it easier to read. But you may still wish to grab a cup of tea and settle in for a long one!

Another month gone already! I’ve found quite a few products that I’ve been loving this month and want to share with you all. There’s a mixture of hair care and skin care, plus a lip balm!

Having such bright hair is a commitment and I do put a lot of effort into picking out the right products and maintaining my hair. I think its worth the effort, but I’m always on the look out for products which can make it a bit easier. One of the main products I use on my hair is temporary dye mixed with conditioner to help keep my colour looking fresh.
Just over a week ago, I was meeting a friend for lunch and popped into Boots to grab a new dry shampoo as the bottle of Batiste I had at the time was pretty much empty. I don’t like being caught without it so I stocked up on a new can ready for when it died. Recently it seems there has been a huge expansion of dry shampoo lines by all kinds of hair care companies, so I was quite spoilt for choice.
By far the most viewed post on my blog is the Neutral Protein Filler Review. However, it’s more of an initial impressions post, as I wrote the review after one use. I have now been using it when dying my hair for the past six months and felt that I have more to add to the subject.
This is a more unusual nail varnish choice for me, but there was something about Ciate’s Honey Bee that made me want to try it. I got my bottle in T K Maxx on sale for £3.99 a few weeks back and wasted no time in putting it on my nails. Honey Bee is a pink toned pale brown nude with golden shimmer.

I’ve decided it’s time to formally introduce you all to the shampoo I have been using for the past four weeks or so. From my previous shampoo review post, you may be aware that I was having some trouble finding a sulphate free shampoo that actually did everything I wanted it to. Well, I think I’ve found the answer! Enter Schwarzkopf Bonacure Color Freeze Sulfate-Free Shampoo.
I bought this Sakura Bath Bomb from Lush not too long after Christmas, you can see the haul post here. The thing I was most drawn to about it was the scent, as it took me back to my time in Tokyo last February.
The winter is really taking its toll on my skin. I know that as the weather changes it’s best to change your skincare routine to meet different needs, but this year my skin has gone really dry and, in some places, I’ve even gotten a few small patches of eczema. I haven’t had trouble with eczema since I was about 5! To counter this, I raided my stash for moisturisers. Here’s what I’m using at the moment.
So this is a bit of an odd post in some ways, as I was going to post a ‘What I Got For Christmas/Birthday’ thing, but have been working a lot (yay retail at xmas…) and predominantly got books & dvds. I am very pleased with everything I got*, but I don’t want to bore you all with them. Then I went sale shopping & found nothing in most stores, so I have combined those beauty items with the others for one picture heavy beauty post!
*except maybe a christmas cake liquer I got for my birthday. I’m scared to try it.

I think this is my biggest ever empties post, I’ve had a few things coming close to finishing for a while which I’ve finally managed to use up! Some of these are firm favourites which I’m sorry to see go, but others I am glad to see gone.
