First Class Flirts
Unfortunately I didn’t fly first class but I was able to pick up this cute Benefit travel set on board:-
Here are the items I got inside. Cannot wait to try them out!
My beauty regime has also changed a lot especially the way I am applying make up and how much I am putting on my skin. I barely wore any make up on holiday apart from to cover up any problem areas and a bit of bronzer, I am hoping to incorporate this into my routine back in England as it takes less time and any skin problems I have will clear up quicker. I am going to definetly include these into my routine, cannot wait to also try out the “That Gal” primer, I have heard fantastic things about it. This only cost me £16.50 on the plane so was a fantastic buy. I love Duty Free and whoever came up with the idea!
That’s all from me,

Out of the set this is by far my least favourite item, the toner feels greasy on my skin and unpleasant to use. It is also very difficult to get out of the actual bottle itself which adds to the annoyance of this product. Overall I only give this product a 1 out of 5.
The Nutra Energy 100 Hours Cream
Luminous Goddess Aura BB Cream
Kate Moss’ latest Rimmel London collection has finally hit the shelves and I have to say I am very impressed.
I got this today for a steal of a price at £4.99 down from £7.49 – a nice saving of £2.50, I used my Boots Advantage card points so it was like I paid nothing at all…Even though it takes forever to get one pound worth of points so technically I did pay for it, just not now.
Anyway, moving swiftly on. I don’t use much Rimmel products and I haven’t in the past, it has never been my go to brand however when I came across this mascara I instantly fell in love. The head on the mascara is amazing, there isn’t many mascaras like this out there at the moment. There are heads that are curved but none that follow this type of curvature (I could be wrong), it is bizarre but at the same time revolutionary.
I am looking forward to trying this out and seeing how it fairs up. I have recently been using Benefit’s BadGal Lashes and Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl mascara both very good mascaras in their own way.

I purchased this product with a bunch of other Soap and Glory items and ever since then I have been unable to stop using this. I have never used a CC Cream before however like a BB cream it is basically a tinted moisturiser with sun protection. A part from this the creams main aim is Colour Correction or Complexion Correcting – note the CC.
As of lately I have had very dry and terrible skin which is not great when trying to apply foundation over the top of it, luckily this CC Cream glides over effortlessly and seems to cover any redness on my skin brilliantly. Unfortunately when it first comes out it appears very very orange… a bit tangtastic I know and this is the lightest shade you can get, it is almost shocking to how orange it is;
Don’t be discouraged by the colour though, it blends nicely on the skin and when powder is applied you can barely tell the difference to your natural skin tone. Just make sure to blend well when using as otherwise your face and neck will look very different indeed, also blend into the neck as you usually would with other foundations to make it less noticeable.
Below is what it looks like when applied alone with nothing else, still a few lumps and bumps noticeable on my skin however there is no unsightly redness that is completely visible.
Over the last few days I have had a little spending spree and bought a few products from one of my current favourite brands – Soap & Glory.
I usually get a few S&G items for Christmas or maybe even birthdays; they have always been a strong favourite of mine product wise even if I only get them once or twice a year. I never really buy my own S&G items but I decided to take the intuitive and get my own.
The middle purchase on the top picture is actually a present for my mum. I loved the set and all the items contained within. I thought it would be perfect for her.
I have always wanted to find a product that both conceals and covers my face without looking cakey or clogging my pores. That is why I turned to Korean BB creams as from what I heard from a friend they were perfect for what I wanted and needed. When looking on ebay for Korean BB creams I was a bit sceptical about which ones to buy, the majority of them were fairly cheap so I didn’t feel like I’d break the bank purchasing them. The first one I came across was on f2plus1 shop and goes by the name of Holika Holika Petit BB Cream – 30ml. There are five types of this BB cream; each tailored to different skin types and what people want/need from their product, they are as follows: Clearing, Watery, Essential, Shimmering and Moisture.
I only purchased the Clearing BB as it sounded perfect for what I needed as I suffer from the occasional break out and would rather wear a product that would help my skin through the day rather than hinder it.
I was rather worried at first that it’d be too dark for my skin tone as I am very naturally pale however after blending the product it seemed to adhere to my skin tone and look natural, giving me a lovely finish. It gives medium to heavy coverage depending on how many layers you apply to the skin. Taking this into account, I wouldn’t need to use any concealer on my face before applying this product which cuts a lot of time and effort out of my morning routine. It also smells absolutely lovely, I can’t even explain the smell or pin down what it actual is but it smell fresh, it also isn’t over pwering and as soon as it is applied to the skin it loses its odour. Which I am rather disappointed about as it smells SO good!
The BB cream also stays put all day, unfortunately I get quite greasy skin and it doesn’t seem to stop this shine although it is nothing a little powder can’t fix. I am not sure whether it is due to the product itself or just bad timing with putting it on my skin but I have suffered from a breakout during the process of using this. However I can’t entirely blame the product as my skin is infamous for going through great spells and awful spells.
But here is the product/coverage of the BB Cream:-
Before a full day of work After a full day
The above pictures are what the Holika Holika Clearing Petit BB Cream looked like before a full day of work and after, the picture on the left is shortly after application and the picture on the right is after 10 plus hours of wearing. I know there doesn’t look much difference between the two but I promise you they were taken ten hours apart. I think this goes to show how well the product stays throughout the day.
I also took the pictures in the car to and from work – I hope it is pretty obvious that I wasn’t driving!
I did this so that I could get some lighting and show you how the BB cream looks on my face in natural lighting.
On top of all this, it also has SPF 30 which is brilliant in any kind of product as it gives you the coverage and the protection. Although if you live in a humid sunny place always wear sunscreen, do not use this as an alternative! Always best to be safe than sorry.
Taking all this into account I give this product:
If you are looking for this product for your own personal use, here’s the link to f2plus1’s ebay page where I purchased the BB Cream from:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/f2plus1
Feel free to have a look at the seller’s page. From my experience so far they are a great seller and I have received the products that I’ve ordered from them in less than ten days after the item was dispatched which is amazing, especially since it is coming from Korea.
That’s all from me, I hope you enjoyed my review. I shall be reviewing another Korean beauty product soon, so look out for that. 🙂
