Liz Earle - Foot Spritzer♥

Hi lovelies! This is going to be another review from Liz Earle, and it will also be featuring in my summer must haves post which I'll be posting this week. So onto the review...

This is a new product to the Liz Earle foot care range, it's a lovely refreshing and cooling mist, packed with 9, yep 9! essential oils rosemary, spearmint, peppermint, patchouli, menthol, lavandin, Eucalyptus, cedarwood, and armoise. It also has aloe vera in to sooth and keep your feet moisturised.

I like that it fights any odour on the feet, keeping your toes fresh and it is super fast drying, I spray it on and it is dry within seconds. Such a fine mist, it doesn't leave my feet sticky. My only problem with this for me, is because I've used it regularly in hospital and the hot weather I have found it to dry out my feet a little. So I would recommend using this with a foot moisturiser! 

75ml RRP £7.50
It is available now while stocks last, you can buy it HERE

Cellnique Diamond Serum Foundation & Total DayTime Protection♥

If you have seen my last review from Cellnique you know that I was sent a few products to review, so this is the next review from the brand.

♥Diamond Serum Foundation♥

This gives me a flawless, bright coverage, it melts wonderfully into my skin. It looks a little thick at first glance, but upon warming it up between my fingers it turns into a light weight texture. What I also like it the collagen boosting and firming agents in it, so it gets a big thumbs up for me that it is anti ageing as well. 

The finish is dewy, not shiny, but it gives you a glow. As I have an oily t-zone I did find myself applying some powder to my nose and chin after lunch. But the coverage lasted all day, something I didn't expect because it is moisturising. It isn't a heavy coverage, I would say it falls into a light-medium category.  



Personally for me, it evens my skin out that little bit more and gives me a healthy glow. This is a great foundation to use during the day.

15ml RRP $45 
You can buy it HERE

♥Total Day Time Protection♥
This is a fab anti-radical and anti-oxidant packed sun protection from the Grape Seed & Green tea leaf, that provides you protection from both UVA & UVB rays with a high SPF 30.

It is a pretty light pink creamy lotion, that has a vanilla scent which I find quite yummy. On my skin (combination) it is light weight and doesn't leave my skin sticky or greasy. Normally I use Clinique's City Block, but I have found myself reaching for this alot more. There hasn't been any changes to my skin using this, but it did the good and I haven't burned!

The packaging on both is sleek and simple, both have pumps which makes dispensing the product easier and hygienic to use too. I hate things I have to stick my fingers into.

50g RRP $50

Overall I am liking these products, but they are pricey so it would be classed as a treat if I re-purchase them.

Liz Earle - Sheer Pink Lip Shimmer♥

This was sent to me from Liz Earle to review.

As of recently I am loving all things lip balm, and have been purchasing loads, so when Liz Earle sent me this I was eager to try it out. It is a very conditioning lip balm, it gives a real boost of moisture to the lips and smells lovely. A very natural plant scent, I like it.

It gives a barely there shimmer to the lips, quite subtle as a lip balm should be. When I first heard about this I pictured lots of chunky glitter which didn't appeal to me however I love this as it lightweight and has just a hint of shimmer balm.

This hasn't left my side since I got it, my No1 lip balm right now!

5g RRP £4.50

Liz Earle - Instant Boost Skin Tonic♥

This is a little review on what I have thought about using the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic, this was a new addition to my skin routine. I would love to tell you I always use a toner, but the truth is I do often forget  to use it, but I made an effort to use this morning and night!

On the bottle it says that the tonic, "Revitalises, soothes and tones for instant radiance.". It is alcohol free so it will not dry your skin out, the aloe vera is used to revitalised and soften, the calendula, chamomile, cucumber and vitamin E all help to soothe and refresh the skin. The oils, rose-scented geranium, lavender and sweet orange, aid to restore and revive how you feel. This scent is very floral, almost like baby lotion to me I think, some people may find it over powering but for me it is the kind of scent that I love!

I have been using this for a about 2 months, the bottle I am using is one that I bought off QVC, and since putting this into my routine my skin has changed alot. It is alot softer and smoother, I have also found that it helps to sooth any sore blemishes that I have, I just place a little on cotton-wool and place onto the affected area and it is very cooling and refreshing. My skin look's more rejuvenated, and a little brighter.

This feel like water on the skin, nothing sticky, it is light weight and dries quickly into the skin.

As for the packaging, I love the lid, a twist up top so you can control the amount of product that comes out, but it also ensures the lid wont slip off and spill everywhere.

I think this is a great toner, and so far is the best that I've tried.

As you all know I love love loveee Nailene, and this is my latest nail look. Using Nailene's 200 Full Cover Nail Pack. These false nails are a personal favourite of mine, something I have re-purchased countless times. Currently in my nail polish box I have 2 other unopened boxes for when I run out! A little bit obsessed :)

Sleek MakeUP - Turquoise

Eyeko - Lilac 

The box contains 200 nails, of different sizes, for no matter the size of your nail bed there is a size to fit. My nail bed's are small so sometimes it is difficult to find false nails to fit nicely, what I love about this set is that every time I go to do my nails they fit perfectly.

OPI - Mod About You

For stick on false nails they last about 6-8 days, I take very good care of my nails to ensure they last as long as possible. Other brands don't last this long, Nailene for me always ensure's great quality, I haven't bought a product from them that I haven't loved.

As you can see I have put nail polish on them, but I have had many compliments about how natural 'my nails' look with nothing on them, because they are created to look how natural nails look as they grow. Nail polish always lasts over a week no problem, no chips or anything on the Nailene nails too, so I don't have to worry about changing or touching my nails up!

The prices vary from around £3.99 - £6.99 depending on where you buy them, I have found they are the most reasonable priced brand on the market. 

I have load's of NOTD and nail post's, all featuring Nailene, so if you want to see other products that I have tried or designs them just have a look through my posts! :)

Hope you love Nailene as much as I do! Go checkout what Nailene have to offer at !!

Today's colour is Eyeko Lilac Polish. This was two coats, it went a little funny not very smooth, but never the less the colour is very pretty.

Sleek MakeUP Storm palette
MAC Blacktrack Fluidline
Rimmel Sexy Curves 

♥Dark green & Silver from the Storm palette

Hope you liked this, let me know it you want a tutorial on Youtube!


Clinique Bronzer♥

This has been overdue for a while now, I bought this bronzer after my Clinique training as I fell in love with it.  The shade is light/medium as at the time my skin was rather pale, however this has become one of my favourite face powders as it is the perfect colour, isn't shimmery and doesn't leave me oily.

Each bronzer has two shades, a darker one and a lighter one, that you can use separately or mix together. I find they work much better when you mix both shades.

It comes in two shades, light/medium & medium/dark, but in my opinion the difference between the two isn't a great one. Like I said this is a great bronzer because it gives more of a satin finish, the shimmer particles are very finally milled into the powder. It was a great bronzer when I was paler, really lifted my complexion and gave me a lovely glow. Which is why I use it now, but as a face powder because I love the light from within glow it gives to my skin.

♥Swatches below♥
The darker shade above;
The lighter below.

The packaging is nice too, a lovely bronzed  colour, with a decent mirror inside and then there's the hidden compartment for the brush they provide with it. I don't use the brush as it is a little crap tbh, but I suppose it might be useful for touch up's if your out and about.

Overall it is a good product, definitely better suited to those who are scared to get into bronzer, this is a good stepping stone in. I don't think this is one I'll repurchase whilst I have a tan, but when I'm paler I will, so far this has lasted me over a year.
