Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Treatment Mask* Review

Do you have dry skin that could do with some major TLC? then look no further because this is the face mask for you! What a difference this has made to my skin, this is definitely something I look forward to using each week. Essentially this is one huge skin drinkπŸ’¦ and your skin will thank you for it!

Product description:
Give your skin the gift of hydration it dearly deserves with our Intense Hydration Mask. Our replenishing treatment mask is scientifically proven to intensely hydrate skin and also helps increase skin’s ability to retain moisture, so your skin will possess softness and suppleness like never before. 99% natural, dermatologist tested and noncomedogenic, for best results, use this facial mask as part of the 5-step Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration regimen. Put the power of nature to work for your skin.
First off, how huge is this product?! I was amazed at how much face mask you are getting for the price, a whopping 110g which can easily last a good time and with this mask a little goes a long way, the texture is quite thick so it will go a very long way indeed.
This creamy mask literally hugs and comforts the skin, it doesn't dry but gets absorbed by the skin so it ends up looking semi transparent but once you start washing your skin, the mask foams up a little bit but in no way dries, so this is good news for cream mask lovers and it would make sense for drier complexions because the last thing you would want is a drying product that takes away moisture.

This smells incredible too! It has a spa like scent and it isn't overpowering either. It has just the right amount of scent that has a calming effect. Goes really well with the extremely creamy and smooth texture of the mask.

Application was a breeze. I applied this with a face mask brush and I was able to apply it all over my face very quickly and easily. There was less mess and none was wasted either. I kept it on for a good 40 minutes and the whole time it felt very comfortable and relaxing. I washed off the mask with warm water and I was amazed at the results. My skin instantly felt so smooth, it seemed to have banished my dry patches and my skin looked renewed and brighter too. I couldn't believe that after removing the mask, I didn't have to quickly reach out for a moisturiser because sometimes I feel like certain masks take away moisture when you remove it but certainly not this one so I was extremely happy to see how well this had worked.

I cannot recommend this enough, it is so underrated and if you suffer with dry skin or have dry patches on your face then you seriously need to pick this up! Imagine how much this will help in the winter! Your skin will LOVE you.

Get Party Ready With Kiss Lashes*

When I think of false lashes, what comes to mind is: special occasions, parties, getting ready and the festive season and what better time to test out some gorgeous lashes that were sent to me! I created a quick pink/purple smokey eye and I wanted to complete the look with a pair of Kiss Lashes in Midnight from the faux mink collection*

Product description:
Transcend everyday beauty with sumptuously soft faux mink lashes.
Features: Developed with proprietary Mink Effect Design, Lash Couture features a knot-free lash band that distributes weightless volume and curl with a lush, softness like no other. LBD lashes create a smokey eye effect without eyeshadow. Exclusive Knot-free Lash Band. Weightless Volume & Curl, Soft & Seamless, Reusable
Benefits: The lush luxury of real mink lashes without using real mink. The smart humane choice. Adds multiple lengths, curls and angles to your own lashes.

Meet the most sumptuous dark false eyelashes, EVER! These falsies are dense bundled lashes that gives the perfect glam and wispy look and can suit any eye shape too! This style is fun and edgy to bring out the individuality in your eyes.

The feathered ends really makes the lashes look oh-so fluttery, I'm already obsessed with them!

Application was easy, I used the Lash Couture Strip Lash Adhesive in Clear* and applying the glue onto the lashes was a breeze! The glue has a brush on applicator for an easy and mess free application and it actually is infused with Biotin and Blueberry extract! Which means the formulation is gentle but has a strong hold. What I loved about the glue is that there is no nasty scent, you know... that typical latex smell that can seriously put you off ^^

When I applied it onto the band, I waited a few seconds for the glue to get tacky and then I applied it onto my eyes. Now I don't wear false lashes that often so my lash putting on skills aren't that great but these were some how SO easy to apply onto my lash line. I felt like the glue had taken a good hold of my lashes so I knew that these wouldn't become loose near the edges. The lashes are also reusable which is great since it actually looks and feels expensive but for a fraction of the price. I really recommend Kiss lashes! I genuinely think these products are so high in quality and I was amazed at how quick and easy the results were, trust me you'll stop buying those pound lashes once you try these!

'Midnight' lashes available to buy at Superdrug - link was £7.99 now £5.32*
'Pretty' lashes available to buy at Boots - link £5.99*

Kat Von D Beauty | First Impressions

I have heard SO much about the Kat Von D brand but I have never tried or swatched any of the products before... until now!
I got two of the most popular minis to play around with and well, it did not disappoint! The much talked about tattoo liquid liner and the very loved everlasting liquid lipstick! Read on to see my mini reviews!

Tattoo Liner in 'Trooper Black'
Believe me, I had really high hopes for this much talked and loved about product but I was really disappointed at how the liner was just not that black enough, you can see from the swatch that it isn't even fully opaque. I was expecting an extremely jet black colour that didn't need layering. I did however like the cute packaging and the ultra fine nib for easy and quick cat flicks. I hope the formulation of this gets changed so that the colour doesn't feather away and that it actually stays put. 

Everlasting Liquid Lipstickin 'K Dub'
This product truly WOWED me. I wasn't expecting such a huge colour impact. What you see outside of the tube, is the actual true colour and I didn't even need to layer this. From the swatch you can see how amazing the pigmentation is and it really does stay put no matter how much you eat or drink. I probably wouldn't opt for this colour though, I have checked out the range and thankfully there are some nudes and lighter pinks that I would actually wear daily. This liquid lipstick also seems to have a lovely buttery like scent which I don't think was needed but it sure adds to the overall lovely-ness
RATING: πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ OUT OF FIVE
