REVIEW: New nSpa Masks

nSpa, nSpa skincare, nSpa skincare review, nSpa review, nSpa masks

nSpa quickly became one of my favourite budget beauty brands after I discovered them last year in ASDA. I have reviewed a few of their products before, which you can check out here and here. I was super excited when I saw they had launched a range of 4 new sachet masks! So today I am going to be reviewing all 4 for you.

KIKO Liquid Skin Second Skin Foundation REVIEW

KIKO Liquid Skin Second Skin Foundation Review, KIKO cosmetics, KIKO Liquid Skin Second Skin

A couple of weeks ago, I hauled a few products from KIKO (in this post here). One of those products being their new Second Skin foundation, so I thought I would update you and write a full review now that I have tried it out properly.

So the KIKO Liquid Skin Second Skin Foundation (£18.90) is designed to be a very lightweight, seamless foundation that looks and feels just like your skin when you're wearing it (hence the name second skin,duh).

The Morning Cleanse

The morning cleanse is very different from the night time cleanse. You don't have layers of makeup and SPF to remove (Hopefully...). You just need something that gives the skin a refresh, gets rid of dead skin cells that have shed overnight (Mmm.) and sweat.

Yes- cleaning your face in the morning is necessary. Would you rather apply your morning skincare/makeup for the day over dead, sweaty skin or fresh, clean skin? Exactly.

Topshop Airbrush Primer Review

As an oily skinned gal, a primer is a must for me. I will never understand the people who claim it is an "unnecessary step". A good primer is what keeps oil under control, keeps makeup in place and gives you a smooth, flawless base.
If you have read my blog before, you'll know that for the last year-ish my go to, favourite, every day primer was InstaBlur from The Body Shop (£14). It is a great product if you have oily skin or simply just want to keep your makeup in place that extra bit longer throughout the day.
However, I have found something that has finally, not only managed to be as good at the InstaBlur, but actually better!

Mini KIKO Haul

I spotted on Instagram that KIKO had come out with a new foundation, this caught my attention instantly and I was off onto their website for a browse. Even better, when I got onto their site, I got a pop up on screen with a 20% off code, which made it even easier to pick up a few bits! I have only ever tried the Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks before, which I absolutely adore, so I was excited to add a couple new products into my collection from KIKO.

After months of reading about them on blogs, mainly being compared to the NARS Velvet pencils I finally picked up a Maybelline Colour Drama lip pencil.

Toners for What, Who and When.

Toning is probably one of my favourite skincare steps. When I started using acid toners, I saw a massive difference in my skin. A lot of people see toning as an "unnecessary step" but to me, it it what keeps my skin balanced, smooth and free from congestion. I thought I would write this post today talking about which toner you can use for what and show you how many different types of toners there are and how many different benefits they can have for your skin.

Bourjois Colorband Sticks review

Bourjois Colourband review

I have pretty high standards when it comes to stick eye shadows, after discovering the amazing KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows. Affordable, creamy, blendable and highly pigmented, they are a hard product to beat. So, when I saw Bourjois had jumped on the bandwagon and brought out their own eyeshadow sticks, I had to pick up a couple to try.
