Benefit Roller Lash | First Impressions & Review

As soon as March's edition of ELLE came out in the shops I was quick to snap it up so I could get my sample of Benefit's new 'Roller Lash' mascara. I've been a fan of Benefit and their mascaras for so long now so when I heard about this new release I was so excited. I tried it as soon as I got home and I was not disappointed!
When I put it on the first thing I noticed is how well it curled my lashes. I didn't need to curl my lashes before hand as this mascara took care of that! Also it lengthens and thickens lashes really well. Also just like the famous "They're real!" mascara it stayed on all day. However, because it stayed on all day, it took forever to come off! I used my Garnier eye makeup remover and it eventually did the job!
As soon as this amazing is available to buy full size I will definitely be purchasing it.

January Favourites | 2015

As the first month of 2015 is nearly over (how crazy is that!!) I thought I would share my January favourites with you. I only have 4 favourites this month as I haven't had much time to try new products but I do have my eye on a few new releases I want to pick up soon!
I got this as a birthday present a few days ago and I already love it! The scent contains blackberry, grapefruit and pear which creates a lovely light fresh scent perfect for spring. The bottle is so cute too making it worth the money! You can get it in 3 different sizes and I have the medium as you get cute daisy's on the lid!
I got this for Christmas and I love it. Not just because it's Zoe's but the product itself is just so lovely. The cream is a pearly pink which goes perfectly with the cute lacey packaging. You get so much for your money too, I've used this everyday since Christmas and I'm not even halfway through it yet!
I've had this in my collection for so long but this month I rediscovered it and I've been wearing it pretty much everyday! I apply it with a brush so I get a thick layer on my eyelid. I then take some more under my eye. The colour is perfect for the colder months and the metallic shine adds something interesting to an everyday makeup look.
I've been a fan of this product for so long but keep forgetting to mention it my favourite posts. I use this every time I use a powder eye shadow and it stays on all day. I need to repurchase this product as mine is running out. It's defiantly worth the money as I've had this since August and it's only just started to run out.

Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water | Review

I've been trialing a few of Bee Good's products recently but this one is by far my favourite. I use this everyday before I go to bed and my skin has not dried out. Instead it's become more refreshed and my blemishes have calmed down.
I apply some to a cotton wool pad and just gently wipe it over my face. It instantly cleans my skin and even takes away any makeup i have left on.
This product is also great to use at the end of your skincare routine so I use my cream cleanser, moisturiser and then this. It makes my skincare routine really quick and easy even though its a really deep clean.
I thought that because it's honey that it would be really heavy on my skin but its really not which I love.
As soon as I finish this bottle I will quickly be replacing it!
I really recommend this to you if you're looking for a way to make your skincare routine easy and quick.

*This product was sent to me for review however all views are my own.

The Weekend Round Up #1

It's hard to believe that we're nearly half way through January already. As it's a new year I really want to start working hard on my blog now making posts that I'm really happy happy with. This starts by writing more lifestyle posts. I love reflecting on a good day so I thought doing an occasional 'weekend round up' was a good way to start.
This weekend me, my sister and dad went to our local beach for a walk. It sounds boring and I honestly thought it would be but it turned out to be so refreshing especially as I took my camera along.
I loved taking a walk along the beach as even though I live right by the coast I never really go and spend an afternoon there. It was freezing though!!

Me and my dad also took a trip to the New Forest which is a national park about half an hour from where I live. It's such a lovely place to go and drive round one afternoon as you never know what you're going to see.
I've had such a relaxing weekend which is just what I needed as now I feel refreshed and ready to get back to college. I hope you all had a lovely weekend too.

Benefit Go Tropicoral | Review

I've been admiring Benefit set's for a long time now so when I received a couple for Christmas I was so happy! I wanted to share my thoughts on Go Tropicoral today as it's by far my favourite gift set I received. It's based around Benefit's famous blusher 'coralisita' which happens to be my favourite blush from Benefit. The set includes mini versions of Cha Cha Tint, High Beam, Coralista Blush,  Coralista Lipgloss and a mini cheek brush. Who doesn't love minis?! They're great for travelling, especially the Cha Cha Tint, High Beam and Lipgloss because they are separate from the packaging.
As with most Benefit products the quality is great and I loved trying the Cha Cha Tint and High Beam as they're products I've had my eyes on for a while.
Cha Cha Tint and Coralista Blush both add a lovely shimmery hint of coral to your cheeks which when blended out looks really natural. Cha Cha Tint is a liquid formula but is still as easy to blend out as a powder blush. I just use my fingers to blend it.
High Beam is a gorgeous baby pink highlighter that compliments the coral blushes so well. It's also a liquid formula but like Cha Cha Tint it is still easy to apply and blend.
The lipgloss is a lovely deep coraly red that stays on your lips for so long. Its also a great size for your handbag.
I recommend this gift set as it makes a lovely present for someone or a great treat for yourself!
