Burberry Body Eau De Parfum Intense

Burberry Body Eau De Parfum Intense from £44.50 available from The Perfume Shop

Burberry Body Eau De Parfum Intense is a deep and rich long lasting scent, with a warm combination of ingredients. Top notes of illuminating peach fresh green absinthe and delicate freesia. At the heart there is rose absolute, iris and warming sandalwood. Then the base consists of woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, musk and amber which is a favorite of mine. Much like the first seductive Burberry Body fragrance this has the luxurious depths of the amber and woods, mixed with the feminine rose and peach, creating perfume that draws you in with the heady experience. Burberry Body Eau De Parfum Intense is another hit and I've been told this smells very 'Louise', Burberry is one brand that I have continuously worn since I was young. With the brands 'Weekend' being a firm must have of mine since it was the first perfume I was ever given and to this day when I smell it I am overwhelmed with emotions and memories. The packaging is very sleek and chic, it comes beautifully presented in  a soft suede finish nude drawstring pouch to ensure the perfume is protected from the sun so you can enjoy it for longer. 

Have you tried the Burberry Body Intense fragrance? Do you have a perfume that evokes happy memories like me? 

Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine

 Laura Mercier Second Skin Cheek Colour 'Lush Nectarine' £20.50 from Laura Mercier counters or SpaceNK

This is one blusher that I have to rave about and it's been a true love of mine for some time now. Laura Mercier's Second Skin Cheek Colour in Lush Nectarine, this is one product from the brand that a lot of us in the beauty community love and adore, which isn't so hard when it is so darn pretty right? I bought this a few weeks ago after been won over by the natural soft formula that also comes in an array of wearable shades, something Laura Mercier is known for as they, in my opinion, create products across the brand that are very natural and behave like skin. It is a peach blush that has just the right amount of pink and through it there is slight golden shimmer - it is the golden shimmer that create the natural sheen and glow to the cheeks. Like I said above the formula is very natural, giving a soft believable flush of colour and it will stay all day too. Lush Nectarine is one of those colours that I am just drawn in by, this shade works beautifully with my skin tone and it practically lives in my makeup bag now. I can't say a bad word about this blusher and I have finally found a blusher formulation that ticks all my boxes, now to branch out and try new shades.

RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum

Sorry about the stock photo Blogger doesn't like my camera today!
RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum £37.00 available from Boots

This post is well and truly overdue, but I have had good reasons, however it's time to share with you a product my brows cannot live without. RapidBrow Eyebrow Enhancing Serum was launched a while ago now but I've been using it for the past few months and I simply don't know why it took me so long to try it. My brows before I started using this weren't terrible, they were a little patchy through the front and they struggled to grow a the ends of my brows in terms of fullness, so I had to rely on a brow pencil everyday (New CID does an amazing one - review will be up tomorrow!). Having used RapidBrow for around about 4 months, I have noticed those pesky patches that I had previously have filled in and where I struggled to grow hair it is slowly growing in fuller. The formulation uses a eyebrow loving mix of peptides, biotin, keration and apple fruit extract to help strengthen and regenerate the hairs. Applied with the brush twice a day, they say in around eight weeks you will see results, I started to see results at around week 5, amazing! I will admit that I am a massive fan of the brands Rapid Lash and have been for over a year now but when I heard about this launch it was a mixture of excitement and doubt. Though RapidBrow  has well and truly proved my doubts wrong, I have so much thanks for this little tube, my brows look so much better now. Where before I wouldn't leave the house without my lashes and brows done, I feel totally fine just popping on some mascara and jumping out the door. If you have any problems with your eyebrows, patchy areas or no hair at the ends like me, or maybe you just want to have fuller brows  then I highly recommend RapidBrow  and I'm sure you will love it too.
