Airspun setting powder


Hello, and welcome back to my blog.  Today’s post is beauty related and is a product review about: Airspun.  I had never heard of this product until I started watching Patrick Starr on YouTube and he raves about this powder.  When I had a look on Amazon, it was only £7.41.  For all my fellow England followers, you can only buy this on Amazon or EBay there isn’t any shops here that sell this.

This product is  “an exclusive Microspun formula where loose powder particles are spun and swirled until they reach a cloudlike softness. This ultra smooth powder hides tiny lines, wrinkles and blemishes and gives a new softness to your skin. Use to set make up or as a foundation. Long lasting. Dermatologically tested.”

The applicator is extremely soft and great for applying the translucent powder to the skin.  I pour a good amount into the lid and then apply it all over my fave, I used to use it under my eyes but now I am addicted and have to apply it everywhere.  The picture below shows how translucent the powder is, which is great because I find some powders still make my foundation look whiter when it states TRANSLUSCENT.


I love how soft the powder is, and it has any amazing smell as well, I can’t quite explain but it smells like summer to me with a small floral scent.

It works wonders on my skin, it never leaves patchy areas and it never clumps.  It is super fine and super affordable.  I really recommend this to people who are starting out with makeup and don’t want to spend a fortune.  I have had it a couple weeks now and basically use it every day and it works wonders, it lasts up to 10 hours I would say and that’s working under hard conditions…. Some of you may know I’m a nurse and my job can get quite hot especially as the heating is on in the hospital still, and this powder keeps my foundation in place for a long time and hasn’t let me down.  

My skin can become very sensitive and break out with new products but with this powder my skin actually settled and felt softer.  However I wouldn’t use the powder on its own like it said above as I found it just stuck to the dry areas of my skin and made me look very pale.

Makeup HAUL 

   
 
Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog, to keep up to date please press the follow button.

Well I went shopping Saturday with a friend and went a little crazy.  I went to Boots first which is a drug/pharmacy store to get my favourite foundation at the moment which is, Maybelline dream satin liquid.  Whilst there I saw the new Dream velvet foundation which has been trending on Instagram and on other blogs, so I thought I would buy that as Maybelline was having a deal where I could buy one product and get the other half price, totalling at £11.98.

I then needed some more concealer from urban Decay as I’m sure I’m about to run out of the naked skin concealer. Whilst there the sales girl said that they were having a deal that day where if I bought £50 worth of products I could get £10 off.  Well I was sucked in then and asked her which was best,  she suggested the primer potion which I have been keeping an eye on for a while now and thought I need to give it a go, as the reviews are amazing.  Then she suggested a setting spray, the spray I bought was the 16hour one and she said it is suitable for dry and oily skin,  bonus. So I ended up paying £59 in Urban Decay oops.

I’m thinking of doing a review for all individually for you all if you’re interested.

New 3 clay L’Oreal shampoo and condition review.

  
Hey all I introduce you all the the 3 clay shampoo and conditioner from L’Oreal.  What interested me in this product is that on the adverts it stated it can help people who have oily roots and dry ends.  For some time now I have experienced really oily hair which is horrible and embaressing for me, because no amount of dry shampoo will make it last so I have to wash my hair every other day, I refuse to wash it everyday as this can strip away essential oils, however I cannot leave my hair any longer than 2 days.  I also have extremely dry ends, no matter how much conditioner or oil I put on the ends of my hair my ends will always feel rough, dry and brittle.  Normally this may be easy for people to manage with other products but unfortunately for me I also have a very irritated scalp which has been a battle for the past couple years.  My scalp becomes extremely itchy,covered in lumps, dry skin and red blotches, and no matter what shampoo I try I find my scalp never improves and after 2 days I will be scratching and washing my hair to relieve my irritated/sensitive skin.

When I saw this on TV I thought perhaps the 3 clays formula may help soothe my scalp due to the natural nature of this product.  Now the website claims:

“Introducing our breakthrough innovation from Elvive, Extraordinary Clay. For the first time we have combined 3 refined clays into a hair care range to break the vicious cycle of oily roots & dry ends.

Clays have been celebrated in beauty rituals for thousands of years due to their unrivalled ability to cleanse, purify and energise. In terms of hair care, Clays combat the excessive oil production at the roots but also any dehydration throughout the lengths and ends. 

The star of the range and new beauty gesture is the Pre-Shampoo Clay Masque. This “spa-like” treatment when massaged into your roots before shampooing, absorbs excess oils and impurities. Curious why you need a pre-shampoo ritual?”

I have only been using this for about a week so about 6 total washes.  And I am very happy with the results so far. Now was not aware of the mask that is also available with these products which I may just purchase to see if that helps me anymore.

So far the ends of my hair are starting to feel softer, look smoother and have more volume.  However the roots of my hair are still greasy on second day hair, when the product states it should last for 72 hours.  However I am dealing with this because the shampoo has actually helped my scalp (THANKYOU). I am no longer scratching my scalp all the time, and my skin is beginning to settle.  Obviously my scalp condition is still there but these products have significantly reduced the irritation, which is all I could ask for.

Overall I am satisfied with this product I am definitely going to purchase the mask to see if that helps my hair anymore using the combination of the 3.  I definitely recommend these products to all of you out there with the same hair type as me, it has worked wonders for me so far and in such a short space of time.

Comment below your thoughts, I would love to see what people think, or if you have any tips if your hair is the same as mine.   Please don’t forget to follow me.

Afterburn/Aftershock Book Review

Afterburn & Aftershock (Jax & Gia #1-2)

Never mix business with pleasure. Never bring politics into the bedroom. In a way I did both when I took Jackson Rutledge as a lover. I can’t say I wasn’t warned.

Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I’d worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn’t the girl he once knew, but he hadn’t changed. Unlike the last time we’d drifted into each other’s lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with… and how addictive his touch could be.

The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax’s playground–but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer…


Another take on the Eva and Gideon, Crossfire series by Sylvia day, but in the lives of Jax and Gia…. Jax a wealthy strong and influential man in the political career and Gia a woman from a close family creating a popular family restaurant, while she wishes to expand others restaurant careers.

I was captivated by the first couple pages, this book is short if only Sylvia Day could make it into a series.
This book contains so much erotic content and a romance that was once broken….
The story of Gia and Jax is split into two, Afterburn and Aftershock, both short stories which get to the Juicy stuff whilst telling a hard and emotional love story between two different worlds of people.

Gia and Jax were a couple two years ago, Gia loved him and he walked out on her in Vegas, leaving her to believe he just used her, he was toxic… Struggling to get back on track she found herself a new job/career which kept her busy in all aspects of her life, only to find herself working with Jax two years later, the two collide.  The two face huge political issues which threaten their relationship and can Gia trust the man who walked out on her in the first place, who has too many secrets.
Will their relationship conquer all.

I was hooked from the beginning to the end and could not put the story down once I had started, this is definitely a must read, even the reviews are fantastic.  I gave this book a 5 star review on Goodreads.  Erotic, romantic and Captivating.
