Vital eyes moisturising eye drops

For about 3 weeks my eyes have felt odd especially the right one it felt like there was something in it but I couldn't see anything and it was driving me crazy because it was watering all the time no matter what u did I just couldn't get rid of that feeling, it had got that bad I phoned the doctors but as usual they didn't have an app until next year so I had to try and sort it myself i started to think maybe its not some thing in it its just a little bit dry so i went in the hunt for some moisturising eye drops.

I picked these up in poundland, I hate putting things in my eyes It doesn't feel right putting wet stuff in them, a few years ago I tried the obtrex eye bath/wash thing and I chickened out I just couldn't open my eye in the liquid so I knew I was going to have to pluck up the courage to use these eye drops

I did manage to do it and it wasn't as bad as thought I must admit it took a couple of attempts to get the drops in haha.

I have used the drops about 4 times and Since using them my eyes feel like new, there's no more watering they feel really refreshed.

So I think that they were a little tired and irritated and the extra moisture that the drops gave were a massive help.

NO.7 vital brights cream blush

While i was in boots picking up a few things there was a stand at the checkout with some reduced products in and this was one of them it was a bargain at £1 reduced from £10 now I have no idea why it had been reduced there is nothing wrong with it.

The best thing is I have been looking for a bright pink blusher for ages and to find this beautiful colour and such a cheap price must have been fate.

I haven't used a cream blush before it's not that I didn't want to I just never got around to buying one, I wish I had got one sooner I love it you only need the smallest amount of product to get a nice colour, I have been applying this with my real techniques stippling brush and the two work wonderfully together.

The blush it's self is super pigmented this is just one swipe on my hand, the only thing is I don't think I would pay full price for this I mean 10 for a blusher is just a bit too much for me.

At full price it's available in two shades
Blooming Pink and Blossoming Pink
i got Blooming pink

Have you tried this blusher?
Whats your favourite cream blush?

Corn Silk loose Translucent Powder original satin

Hiya lovelies,

When I went to the benefit event last week a got talking to a lovely lady called Sarah from slstevo and she recommended a face powder called corn silk now I haven't heard of this before and she explained that you can get in boots and it's placed with the skincare not make up so when I went to boots and had a look i found it where she said it would be there was a pressed powder and a loose one i chose the loose one now it's a little bit pricey at £8.17 but it sounded like just the thing I was after.
The packaging it a little bit old ladyish but it's simple when you open it up it has a face puff for application and a filter like most loose powders have it is slightly scented and it smells really familiar and I carnt put my finger on where I have smelled it before.

The product it's self doesn't contain talc it contains mica and crushed walnut shell powder, it's a very light beige colour and once applied its translucent. On the box it says ' Contains a unique, patented walnut ingredient to control shine for a longer lasting, fresh complexion it balances skin tone without clogging pores' it is suitable for all skin types and is Dermatologically tested

I have used this product for only 4 days and I love it, it is translucent and once applied it looks and feels invisible I use a powder brush to apply and it sets my make up wonderfully, I'm so glad that Sarah recommended this product I cannot thank her enough I LOVE it :)

Have you tried Corn Silk powders before comment and let me know what you think of them


I need your help :)

Hiya ladies

I'm looking for a new foundation and would like some suggestions of you all, I was going to get the Revlon photo ready one but a lot of people have said its really glittery so now I'm stuck on what to buy.
The foundation needs to be a medium to full coverage and not feel too heavy on my skin and it has to be available from boots. Do you have any reviews on foundations I would find helpful, if so please leave a comment with a link to your post or have you got any recommendations for me let me know

Thanks xxx

My problem skin

In this post I'm going to be talking about my skin and the problems i have with it i will put up a make up free picture which for me is a big deal because i hate people seeing me with no concealer on so here goes.

Ever since I started high school I suffered with spots I wouldn't say it was acne as they weren't really red or swollen and it didn't get to the point where my face constantly had them but to me as a young teen they were horrible.

Having these spots really dented my confidence looking back now I wish I had have known how to cover them up but I didn't and I had no idea how to control them so off to the doctors I went and they gave me quite a few creams over a period of time and all of them seemed to make it worse or make my skin really sensitive, then the last time I went they gave me this antibiotic liquid in a bottle with a dabber to apply it looked a little bit like a bingo dabber, now I can not remember the name of this but I know it's quite popular.
I used this product on and off for a couple of years and I loved it my skin cleared up really well. Since having children the dreaded spots are back well I say back they actually come and go but it feels like I have them more than I don't and in the past month or so my skin has been really spot prone and dry i had no idea why until I got all of my skin care products together and went through each one eventually I got to a tea tree foaming face wash and thought back to when I started using it again and it was about the same time my skin started being problematic so I stopped using it and slowly it's starting to clear up with a little help from sudocrem, savlon and clearasil but I don't think this is the end of my skin problems.

With me being older I'm not as obsessed with getting rid of them I have more important things to worry about but it would be really nice if I woke up one day and I had perfect skin which would be amazing but it is never going to happen.

Now the next problem I have with my skin is uneven skin tone or discolouration aside from my huge dark circles the actual skin around my eyes is darker and there are patches dotted all over and this is the one that makes me feel self conscious when I'm not wearing any make up , even if I'm not going anywhere I will still put some concealer on to even it out and the bags seem to make it look worse I have no idea how to sort this out apart from using a shit load of concealer which doesn't even do that much to cover them

Please leave comments if you know or have used any products that work for and of the things I have said I would really appreciate it

Thank you for reading
