Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer

UK Beauty Blogger, Liverpool Beauty Blogger, Hello Kitty Tangle Teezer, Tangle Teezer Review,
In my teens I was that girl obsessed with Hello Kitty, you name it & I most probably had the merchandise! As I'm sure you can imagine I was estatic when I was invited to the Hello Kitty x Tangle Teezer launch, being given the opportunity to have afternoon tea with Hello Kitty was like having all my teenage dreams granted at once.
The Hello Kitty collaboration comes in two colours, black & pink, both with an adorable polka dot print & of course the sweetest Hello Kitty design. I can't actually decide which is my favourite though, I'm a lover of all things girly & pink but also a big fan of monochrome too. The Tangle Teezer Compact Stylers are a handbag essential for me, the protective cover ensures the bristles don't get damaged so I can conveniently keep my hair knot free whilst on the go. 
Since discovering Tangle Teezer I've never used another brush, with my hair being so thick & frizzy they make brushing my hair much easier & completely pain-free. I'm forever recommending them to people because they actually changed my life!
What do you think of the cutest Tangle Teezer collaboration yet?

Love Carex

- Sponsored Content - 

Until I moved into my own home last year I didn't really give a second thought to hand wash, however now I'm always on the hunt for pretty bottles to sit on my bathroom sink. I'm quite fussy when it comes to scents too, they either need to be sweet or fruity so when I discovered the Carex Fun Edition range I was in my element. The Cola Bottle one is up there as my most loved hand wash, the sweet, fizzy fragrance is surprisingly refreshing. Another reason why I like Carex hand wash so much is the fact that they are so moisturising yet still kill 99.9% of bacteria so I know my hands are squeaky clean, but still super soft too. All Carex products are dermatologically tested by experts to ensure our hands are cleansed & protected.

Recently I went down to the 'Love Carex' event held at Mr Simms Sweet Shop in Liverpool ONE to celebrate the launch of the Fun Edition Love Hearts Hand Wash that hit the stores in June. Obviously I was really excited about the new hand wash as I love all things pink, cute & girly, plus Love Hearts are one of my fave sweeties so it is literally perfect for me! 
With the new hand wash being inspired by the retro Love Heart candy hosting the event at Mr Simms was the ideal location. The store was decorated with eye-catching window displays & sweetie displays to create some excitement and to highlight the fun side of Carex. Customers had the opportunity to pose for a photo with the selfie frame & could take home a free bottle of the Love Hearts hand wash if they spent over £3 in store.

The new Fun Edition Love Hearts Hand Wash can be found in Tesco for £1.40 a bottle, will you be picking one up? I know I'll be stocking up, I need an unlimited supply it's so good! 

Have you tried any of the Carex Fun Edition products?

Whats In My August Makeup Bag

UK Beauty Blogger, UK Blogger, Liverpool Beauty Blogger, August Makeup Bag, Beauty Blogger,
It's time to show you all what's been lurking inside my everyday makeup bag throughout the month of August. There are some new products & some all time favourites, rediscovering makeup items is always a good feeling!

The foundation I'm using the most is the L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Cushion Foundation that you may recognise from my July Favourites. Another item that featured in my favourites is the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer, it's a cream formula & infused with Coconut Water that helps keep skin moisturised. I'm really enjoying the combination of the light coverage foundation & the concealer to give me extra coverage where needed. I've finally got my hands on NARS Orgasm Blush & I only wish I had picked it up sooner. It's such a beautiful warm pink with golden shimmer through it that adds a pop of colour & glow to my cheeks.

A long time favourite is the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, that I've been using on & off since I was about 15. I always find myself coming back to this stuff, it's only £4 & is one of the best powders I've tried. Another product that has remained in my makeup bag for what feels like forever is the ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown. I reckon this is always going to be a staple of mine! I have however added another brow product into my routine, the Eyeko Brow Gel* this just ensures my brows don't budge at all, sometimes I end up with half brow by the end of the day otherwise. Another Eyeko item has joined my makeup bag this month, the Eye-Do Mascara*, designed by Alexa Chung herself. The brush on this is insane, which creates big, fluttery lashes for me, love it!

If I've been in an eyeshadow wearing mood I've chosen to use my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette, which I'm ashamed to admit has been very neglected. I'm so glad I rediscovered it because I'd somehow forgotten how buttery soft & pigmented UD shadows are, it's such a beautiful taupe toned palette. And, as always I wouldn't be without liquid eyeliner, I've become obsessed with Tarte Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner. It's dual ended, with a kohl pencil at one end & the other end being the liquid liner. I mostly use the liquid liner but it's really handy having the kohl option there too if I want a more intense eye look. Wearing lipstick isn't a regular occurrence for me, although I do have an excessive amount of them so I should probably take advantage of my stash more often. On the occasions that I have wanted to wear a lip colour I've gone for Tarte's Creamy Matte Lip Paint in tbt, a neutral shade with mauve undertones.

Bathroom Beauty Picks

My bathroom cupboards are overflowing with shampoos, shower gels & scrubs, yet I haven't ever shared a bathroom style post before. I change up haircare products all of the time & I rarely have the same shower gel twice in a row (unless it's Christmas & then I have an endless supply of Snow Fairy) so I thought I'd show you all what I'm currently using. 

Let's start with Shampoo & Conditioner, as that is the first thing I reach for when I hop in the shower. The duo I'm using at the moment is the Diamond Dust* range from label.m, a range that has a unique blend that includes real diamonds! My hair is left feeling seriously silky soft & as though it has been washed at a salon when I use these. Before, during & after washing my hair I comb it through using my Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash Detangling Hairbrush*, it's an absolute life saviour as my hair always knots up otherwise. It's a must have for us girls with thick, frizzy hair as it helps to keep it manageable when products have been massaged in & turned my locks into a tangled mess!

Once my hair is squeaky clean I move onto exfoliating my body. I do this around two times a week to keep my skin smooth & flake-free, otherwise I skip this step & grab my shower gel. I have so many body scrubs on the go at the moment but sometimes I want a gentle one, other days my skin is in need of a bit more TLC so a harsher scrub is required. A scrub thats a good happy medium is the LUSH Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub, a bright blue sea-salt exfoliator. My shower gel of choice is the Balance Me Super Moisturising Body Wash, a luxuriously soft wash that gives my skin a hit of hydration.
Sometimes before I step out the shower I will use the St. Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan (review) which develops into a light tan, perfect for my pasty complexion. It's a bit of a pain having to stand around for 3 minutes before you can wash it off but I love the glow it provides me with so it's worth the wait!

If I use the St. Tropez Tan then I often skip my moisturiser as it's enriched with sweet Almond oil my skin always feels suitably soft. Again, like my extortionate stash of body scrubs I seem to have a similar amount of body butters & lotions so I change them up depending on my mood! My most used at the moment is the & Other Stories Belleville Bakery Body Souffle which annoyingly I picked up in the sale & can no longer find. I'm so sad it's been discontinued because it's such a lovely lightweight moisturiser it's a dream to use. Oh & the fragrance is to die for if you're a fan of sweet smells!

I've also included the Zoella Le Fizz bar from her latest collection, Sweet Inspirations because if I choose to have a bath I'll often throw in a few squares of this bar. It doesn't add a lot of bubbles to my bath but it makes the water soft & lightly scented, which is nice when you don't want something too overpowering. 

What are your bathroom beauty picks?
