Comfort Balm – Ermana Skincare

ermana comfort balm

Hello My Loves!

Sometimes a single product comes along that manages to be exactly what your skin needs and before you know it your reaching for it every morning. That is precisely what Ermana’s Skincare Comfort Balm has become for me.

Described as a rich blend of natural butters rich in vitamins and anti oxidants which hydrate, condition, soften and protect the skin.

It is a versatile product that can be used on any area’s that need a boost in hydration. I particularly love it for my lips first thing in the morning, the blend of  natural butters and essential oils really help nourish my lips which make it the perfect base for those drying matte liquid lipsticks.

My other top use for it is for prepping those drier areas such as elbows and knees before applying fake tan. Just warm little product in your fingertips and wait for the balm to melt then apply. I always use this the day before I have a spray tan and in my opinion it really helps prevent the tan sticking to those areas.

All Ermana product’s are 100% natural and free from sulphates, parabens, artificial colours and fragrances.

Bomb Cosmetics – Cherry Bakewell

bomb cosmetics - cherry bakewell

Hello my Loves!

Now like most of us I’m a huge candle addict, if I go into a shop that sells candles and I can’t help but have a wee sniff. My friends constantly make fun of me for being unable to leave Primark without coming out with a packet of tea lights, who can blame me, they’re a total bargain.

However as much as they mock me for it, whenever they give me gift’s for whatever reason you can guarantee that there is at least one candle in the mix, so really they’re only aiding the addiction.

Which leads me to receiving the lovely Cherry Bakewell from Bomb Cosmetics. Normally I can be a bit fussy with cherry scents as I often find they can be a tad synthetic and overly sweet for my taste so I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this scent. Cherry Bakewell’s were a huge part of my childhood, my birthday parties weren’t complete without them being part of the menu which is why my friend Becky chose it for me. The sweet scent of the cherry and marzipan really create an uplifting scent that left me feeling nostalgic.

I felt the scent really managed to fill the room well and I could still smell it in the air the next morning which is always a nice bonus.

I will definitely be checking out some of the other scents that bomb cosmetics has to offer.

Manicure Monday

barrym almond

Hello my loves!

So before I start I first want to apologise for my shoddy application ( I never realised how bad my cuticles were) you would never believe I’m a trained beauty therapist from this shot.

I’m currently giving my nails a wee break from their usual Shellac as I’ve noticed they’re getting a tad dry so it’s given me a chance to actually wear some of my nail varnish collection.

This week I went with Barry M Almond from their Gelly Collection

Almond is a pale mauve almost taupe colour. It’s a chic easy to wear shade and has that sophisticated greige tone. It applied nicely with 2 coats easily giving it a good opaque colour.

Also I did find the formula of this seems to be quite thin in comparison to most polishes. I actually think a lot of people will prefer them this way as it will make them easier to apply for those that found the others too thick – unless you’re like me, I love thicker formulas, I think when your used to doing gel in the salon you tend to favour a thicker formula as it’s quicker to use by only needing 2 coats.

What nil colours are you liking for Spring?

Manicure Monday!

Hello My Loves

This week for my nails I’ve gone for a very seasonal colour in CND Shellac’s Rubble. I think this colour is suited perfectly to the weather we’ve been having in Scotland lately, is anyone else excited as I am about the snow? I think this shade is great as it goes with everything especially big cosy jumpers and sweaters that a definitely needed at the moment. I also love how it’s a quite subtle shade that makes me feel more grown up compared to my usual bright choices.

Do you like this colour? Also what shades are you loving at moment?
