The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

Hi Everyone! 🙂

I have always loved certain products from The Body Shop – I think it’s one of those shops that have done really well to change with the times. Now shops have to concentrate on social media, online shopping AND maintain their physical stores. My favourite products of all time from The Body Shop are my wooden paddle hair brush, the Almond Hand Cream and the Brazilian Hair Serum. 

Now, I have another product to add to that list and it is the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. This is something I’ve wanted to invest in for a very long time – I soon realised that this is the perfect cleanser to leave in the shower to use once I have taken off the majority of my make up after a long day at work.

bodyshopcamomile

It comes in a handy pump bottle and it claims to be able to take off all make up including waterproof make up. It costs ÂŁ11.00 but I’ve heard a lot of bloggers saying that one bottle lasts them AGES. (Btw it feels really good to do a good old product review, feels like I haven’t done one in ages). When I went to The Body Shop there was a buy one get one half price offer on skincare, so this was great!

This handy product now lives in my shower, I like using it best when I shower in the evening. I wouldn’t say it takes off ALL make up, because when I have used Benefit They’re Real mascara in the day and I want to remove it – this doesn’t take it ALL off. What I’ve found is that if I just use this to take it off I end up with ever so slight panda eyes when I come out of the shower – which I can see when I run a cotton bud under my eyes.

However, if I use a make up wipe to take off the majority of my make up before I get in the shower then the Camomile cleanser works great.

You are meant to apply this dry, then use some water to emulsify this oil as you rub it into your skin. I find that the scent is really calming and natural – this I liked. I like that it isn’t a thick oil either – it is most definitely a silky consistency and this is a great feature!

I do think my skin feels great after I use this, the only let down is that I don’t think it will remove all eye make up. At the same I don’t think it would feel as natural on the skin if the formula was stronger :).

I’m really glad I bought this, as I wanted a cleanser that I could use to make sure all of my make up is off after using wipes – so I’m really pleased!!

Have you tried anything within the Camomile range from The Body Shop?

Leave me a comment if so!

I hope you enjoyed this post, I’ll be posting a lot more in the run up to Christmas so keep your eyes peeled!

Thanks,

The Pro’s and Con’s of Henna/Mehndi

Everywhere I look on Instagram, there are pictures of henna designs and patterns – particularly white henna! In Gujarati we call it mehndi, but I think it’s more commonly known as henna. We recently had mehndi done for my sister’s wedding and a wedding is the traditional reason that you get it done!

When brides get mehndi done for a wedding, usually they hide the groom’s initial in amongst the patterns and he has to find it on the wedding night :D. As you will see, there is just a flower in mine! Lol

I’m not entirely sure how the white mehndi and glitter mehndi works but the colour in traditional brown henna temporarily dyes the skin and it gradually fades off your hands/feet/wrists as you continue to wash (if you do wash, that is :)).

Here is a picture of the beautiful mehndi that I had done last week! mehndi

Having mehndi done is great, it looks so pretty and it can be delicate and intricate, however there are pro’s and con’s for this special beauty treat.

THE PRO’S:

  1. It lasts for at least 4 – 5 days, so the time invested in having someone do it for you is definitely worth it! Especially if you are having it done for a special event such as a party, birthday or wedding!
  2. It looks great in photos! The picture above shows the mehndi when the product is still on the hands, this layer dries and crumbles off and the finished result is an orangey brown colour.
  3. Pairing it with a good manicure means you can make your hands look very elegant!

NOW…ONTO THE CON’S:

  1. It stinks
  2. If you leave it on overnight you’ll find 10 million dried up crumbs of it in your bed and on your floor
  3. You can’t do anything for about 4 hours (this could be a good thing too though!)
  4. It really stinks – especially if you catch a waft as you are doing your make up or something
  5. The fading mehndi isn’t the greatest look!

I hope you have enjoyed reading this post – If you’ve had mehndi done before you’ll know where I’m coming from! Hahahah

Can Seche Vite withstand an Indian Wedding?

Put simply, no it can’t. Lol. Don’t worry, there’s more below :).

So, my sister got married this weekend and being an Indian wedding, it was (at least) a three day shin dig. Traditionally you do some religious ceremonies on a Friday (if you are doing your wedding over a weekend), have your indian wedding day on the Saturday and then a reception on the Sunday – what a way to drag it out, eh?

It’s pretty full on when you cram it into three days, traditionally Indian weddings used to last around a week but now with people wanting to reduce it down it’s condensed into three hectic but enjoyable days for a complete wedding.

Part of the Friday antics involve being covered in a paste made with Turmeric – if any of you don’t know what this is it is usually used in cooking as a colourant (it’s bright yellow) but it has health and beauty benefits. It’s meant to be great for your skin, so part of the wedding prep involves the bride being covered in what we call ‘Pithi’ (usually a mix of turmeric and water). This then does wash off before the wedding day, but you end up finding your house has yellow stained towels, there are random blobs of it on the floor and things that were white are no longer white.

What does this have to do with nails, I hear you ask? Well, the bride traditionally wears an outfit of red/gold/white/green on the indian wedding day – which means you would usually have dark red nail polish. However on the reception day my sister chose to wear a lovely cream colour meaning she’d want lighter coloured nails.

So you have to plan well in advance what you want to do manicure wise because:

  1. You want something that lasts as you will have very little time
  2. You’ll have to bear in mind that when you do the ‘Pithi’ your top coat will usually go yellow and so will your hands
  3. There’s a likelihood of Lots of Yellow

So this brings me onto Seche Vite!

I have raved about this top coat and quick nail polish setter more times than I can count, but I thought it would be a good idea to see if it can withstand the mother of all weddings. Myself and my sisters had maroon coloured nail polish on for the Friday and the Saturday, then we changed our polish on Saturday night and opted for a lighter glittery shade.

We were very busy on Friday and Saturday – moving boxes, washing up, eating, running around and getting things ready – so this is a great test for nail varnish!

Seche Vite usually lasts me around a week before disastrously chipping, but then again I must be really lazy and not do anything. During the wedding, Seche Vite lasted around 1 day – so I can’t say it performs very well during a crazy wedding.

By the evening on Friday, the Seche Vite had started to peel off a little on my mum’s nails and had started to chip at the corners on my own. Here is a lovely picture of what they looked like before the craziness!

Snip20151027_1

This is Essie’s ‘Bordeaux’ – it’s beautiful! It looked great on the Friday morning, but it definitely looked worse for wear on Friday evening. I didn’t have time to touch it up for Saturday so that just…happened lol, but then for Sunday I chose 17’s Silver Kisses, which is beautiful :D.

So unfortunately, although Seche Vite is amazing for day to day wear if you have an indian wedding coming up soon you won’t be able to rely on Seche Vite for the whole time but it is still a great product. I have heard good things about Lottie London’s Gel Top Coat – with someone I follow on Instagram even saying they think it’s BETTER than Mr Vite!

Hope you have found this useful even if it just says ‘WEDDING DON’T USE SECHE VITE’,

Thank you for reading!

My Autumn Beauty Essentials

**READ TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT**

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons (out of the 4 that is) and there are certain beauty products that I think are essential in this leafy, cosy but chilly time of year.

When you compare spring to autumn (those weird in between-y seasons), there are conditions that change the essential beauty items you need. Central heating can change your skin and make it dry, weather can disrupt your haircare routine and the dark nights gives you the opportunity to experiment with bold lips and sparkly eyes.

Here I’m going to run you through my Autumn Winter Essentials!

autumness

FACE:

Dewy skin is a distant memory when it gets to autumn – the most important thing I usually need is for my skin to be matte, moisturised and clear of blemishes. The best foundation I have found (HA) is the EstĂ©e Lauder Double Wear. This is a great matte foundation which isn’t drying and has a great range of colours to match with your skin tone. It isn’t a thick foundation, but it has very good buildable coverage. It lasts a full working day, I would say…and you don’t need a lot of powder to set it in place – it almost sets as a powder itself. The shade I have is ‘Ivory Beige’ which is great for lighter Asian skin tones.

A more mauve toned blush is a great addition to your make up bag for autumn. Try to choose one that is pigmented and lasts for a long time. I really like the MAC Mocha blush, which has no shimmer through it and comes off a browny mauvey shade. It’s really beautiful when used across the cheekbones, but just be careful not to apply too much as it could look a little ruddy.

For a highlight, one product that is particularly good for darker autumn nights is the MAC Mineralise Skin Finish in ‘Soft & Gentle’. I’ve talked about this product a lot on my blog before, but it really is that good. A very light coloured gold, shimmery highlighter, it is best used with either a fan brush or a slightly sparser make up brush – just dust it across your cheekbones and on your cupids bow.

Finally, to finish your face make up, a good setting brush is a must. I only actually got one of these recently, I invested in a Real Techniques setting brush for powder to set my concealer. This is a sparser brush that others in the range and it means that you don’t end up caking on powder on to your face – building it up in thin layers is the best way to make it last longer and look great.

EYEBROWS:

Yessss, eyebrows has it’s own section. :). SO, for my eyebrows, I’ve started to love using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the shade Ebony to create a slightly bolder brow look – usually I would just use the Soap & Glory Brow Archery which creates a more natural brow.

LIPS:

For lips, if you are creating a nude lip one of my favourite lip liners to use is the Revlon Nude Lip Liner. It pretty much does what it says on the packaging and I’ve found it’s a great match for my skin tone (it’s a browny toned liner for a nude lip). I actually used this on my sister for her wedding reception make up and it was a great match for her too.

Finally, for a bold lip one of the best shades of lipstick is Rimmel’s ‘Starry Eyed’ which is a browny burgundy colour. It’s not a very shiny formula, but is great with a lipliner and lasts for quite a while. It’s a very cool toned shade so makes your teeth look whiter too!

AND FINALLY – 

I have made a Facebook page for my blog! You can see it by clicking here, OR the fancy image I’ve made below:

Ways to Relax When It’s Dark Outside

So we are getting to that point in the year where, when you get up in the morning IS DARK and when you get home after work IS DARK.

In the run up to Christmas, there are a few things that I like to do, that might seem very simple, but they are perfect ways to relax. Whether you are stressing about work, family, Christmas or romance, take a few minutes out of your day to chill the hell out!

autumn

1. Make yourself a Nutella Hot Chocolate

If you read other people’s posts about their favourite things to do, they may say “Woo go make a hot chocolate yeah!” but I on the other hand, am telling you to make yourself a NUTELLA hot chocolate. They are delicious!

All you need is a few blobs of nutella, some milk, and a microwave. Blob the nutella into a mug, pour in milk and leave some stirring space inside it. Warm in the microwave for 30 seconds, then take out and stir. Warm for another minute and stir. Then you should see the chocolate spread mixing with the milk, then warm for another 30 seconds if you like it freakishly hot!

2. Treat yourself to a Lush Bath

If you are a fan of Lush bath bombs and shower goodies, then having a special Lush bath is a great way to unwind. It keeps you warm first of all and it also means you can take some time to relax and soak any pains or aches away. It makes you sound old to realise this, but sometimes a bit of peace and quiet is just what you need!

3. Light a few candles and paint your nails

Sometimes this can even include some Youtube to have on in the background :). Lighting candles is a very therapeutic thing and if you have a few candles on in your room while you do something relaxing, it’s an excellent way to TELL yourself you are relaxing. Painting your nails with your favourite autumnal shade will mean you look ‘done’ AND you’ve relaxed a bit.

4. Curl up with a (enter autumnal colour) fleece blanket and watch some crap TV

So, I have a teal fleece blanket. It’s my favourite ever blanket and it lives at the end of my bed. Some days when I’m ill, sleepy, or stressed I will sit with said blanket and relax. Watching crap TV is another layer to make you feel better, it’s like a secret second blanket, where if you use it, you will feel instantly better :D. Serious.

5. Put on a face mask!

This is probably the most stereotypical ‘PAMPER YOURSELF, YOU ARE A WOMAN’ kinda thing to say but HEY, men out there if you fancy a face mask you knock yourself out. Putting on a face mask isn’t the most relaxing thing on this list for me, but it does make you stop and spend some time on your skin. When you are stressed or tired, your skin can show it the most. So taking the time to rub in your moisturiser for longer, spend time applying a cleansing face mask, and taking it off using a warm damp flannel will make you feel chilled and it’ll give your skin a helping hand :).

I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about my favourite ways to relax in the run up to winter!

Thanks for reading y’all 🙂

The Nail Polishes That Say ‘Autumn’

One of the best things about autumn (or Fall for any of you across the ocean) is that you can crack out the mauves, the burgundy reds and the burnt oranges.

Autumnal colours just bellow messages of warm nights by the fire, hot chocolates and feeling snug wrapped in a knitted scarf :).

So I thought I’d show you some of my favourite nail polishes for Autumn time – they are a mix of purples, reds and teals. A few glitters are thrown into the mix too, as when you start to move towards Christmas time you can’t beat a bit of glitter!

nails1

First up, we have Essie’s ‘Bordeaux’ (pictured above) which is a beautiful burgundy, maroon colour. It’s quite dark, but that’s what winter is all about – it’s filled with dark and moody shades. This is my newest purchase and it has a brilliant, glassy effect. Essie polishes are amazing!

Next we have CiatĂ©’s ‘Silhouette’, which is a gorgeous dark red, with flecks of glitter running through it. It isn’t coarse bits of glitter, it’s quite fine but it is quite dramatic once you’ve painted it on. (By the way, why does silhouette have a H in it? Sil HOO ette). The glitter is like a green/browny/red reflection, which is SO pretty.  This takes a good two coats to build up, but once you’ve done the second one it’s beautifully opaque.

nails2

Front and centre, we have Tanya Burr’s Midnight Sparkles, which is a firm autumn favourite of mine. This is quite a bright but dark purple glittery polish. Compared to the CiatĂ© polish this comes out quite opaque already (you can tell Tan has taken time to look at the formula for these polishes). This is a great polish for those times when you are in a rush – a few  sweeps of this and you’re done! I’d recommend a layer of Seche Vite over the top to give a glassy finish that dries really quick!

pic3

Lastly, we have a No 17 polish and another from Tanya’s range (you can tell I like them, right?) The 17 polish is called ‘Navy Glint’, which is summed up by the name really! It’s a teal coloured glitter, which has AMAZING opacity. Seriously, a few strokes of this nail polish and you are done. It can look quite dull as it is so I’d recommend using a top coat :).

Then, Tanya Burr’s ‘New York Night’ is a deep purple that has no shimmer in it. Sometimes when using this, it’s so dark it looks a bit black, but I quite like that about it. This is quite good in terms of coats – I’d say max 2 coats is needed. This is a great kind of polish to use if you are going for a bit more of a grungy look, or if you’ve used kohl to line your eyes for example.

Those are my favourite polishes for Autumn time, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and feel free to leave me a comment if you want to know any more about them!

Almost 5 Months of Youtube…what have I learnt?

I’ve been doing Youtube videos for almost 5 months now and I thought I’d jot down some of the things I have found out as I thought this might be useful for any other Youtube newbs or bloggers thinking about expanding into having a Youtube channel.

It’s a great outlet to be creative on, especially when it comes to editing etc but it can take some time to start a video from the very beginning to finishing it completely.

Here’s a quick run down of the things I have found out/learned/thought about sporadically:

Filming is time consuming but totally satisfying

I love the process of filming, but just bear in mind that things like tutorials can take a lot of time to prep and film and edit. It helps to plan your looks in advance and just get out the products that you know you are going to use…this helps cut down editing time because you won’t then have around 12 mins of footage where you are scrambling around trying to find that mascara you want to use.

Writing tags is the most boring thing on this here planet Earth

I don’t know why the suggested tags on Youtube aren’t better but doing tags is bloody boring. I know it’s important and all that blah blah but even when blogging I hate doing it! I know I sound like an ungrateful sod and first world problems etc but it doesn’t take away from the fact that typing in words when it’s not a post ISN’T FUN. It’s just necessary.

Don’t expect each video to get 1000’s of views straight away

This isn’t a deterrent to say ‘don’t do youtube’ just be very mindful that when you are starting out it’s going to be difficult to get views unless you are Kylie Jenner. Think of ways you can direct traffic to your videos…it might be using Instagram and using BitLy to shorten your URL’s, or Twitter or directing traffic using your blog. Make sure your channel looks great and always make sure you link to your previous videos at the end of the one you have put up.

Be aware of true and sub 4 sub subscribers

There isn’t anything wrong with this at all because a lot of people use this tactic, but sub 4 subbing is a way of people getting subscribers fast basically. Everyone does it, so don’t be down trodden if you get people leaving comments openly saying ‘sub 4 sub?’ because at least they are being honest about it. I’ve done it the odd time but it feels weird so I try not to.

Enjoy it!

More than anything, I’ve learnt that Youtube is actually really fun and a great outlet for creativity. I love putting up a well edited video, or a make up tutorial that I’m particularly proud of. I guess blogging/social media/youtube is quite a self gratifying thing to do but when you get comments, likes and views it is really satisfying to know that people like what you have created!

To end this post, I’m going to leave you with a collage of my favourite video’s I have filmed…if you click it you will go straight to my Youtube channel so if you want to you can have a browse!

My Favourite Instagram Pictures of All Time

Hi Everyone!

So I don’t think I’ve ever done a post like this (I can’t be sure but who can be bothered to go through ALL 151 of the posts I’ve done on this blog to check…) This post is going to show you my most favourite instagram photos which might be a mix of people, places, products and make up looks.

I hope this doesn’t turn out to be a really self centred post…imagine if I just gave you 20 pictures of myself *insert crying laughing whatsapp emoji*

I LOVE Instagram. Out of all social media (? is that the right plural), Instagram is my favourite. I wasn’t on it for AN ETERNITY then one of my best friends created my account and showed me how to use it *the shame, the shame*. I’m sure it was like showing your parents how to use a computer “No, you have to CLICK on it”.

I now go on Instagram at least twice daily…I just love trawling through people’s posts and seeing people’s make up collections/places they’ve been/amazing food they have eaten. I feel like you really can get to know people on there too (not in a weirdo way) and everyone I’ve exchanged comments with have been lovely.

So, here I’m going to show you my most favourite pictures! I hope you enjoy them!

INSTCOLLAGE

These Instagram photos document some of my fondest memories and I’ll explain a few of them here.

In the top left and bottom right corner are two selfies taken with my two older sisters, one on my eldest sisters’ engagement and the other on my middle sisters’ engagement! These were just really fun days where we all got dressed up, had lots of family round and celebrated the fact that they had each found someone to put up with them other than me.

Middle row, furthest on the right (bear with me here) is my favourite make up look that I’ve ever done and it was using the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in ‘Misty Rock’. It wasn’t the most complicated make up look, it just happens to be my favourite because I was so happy with the finished product!

The two pictures containing food are mainly there because I enjoy food.

The centre picture was taken on the BEST HOLIDAY I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. This was a girls’ holiday and it was around 5 days of fun, drinking and laughs. It was bloody boiling and all.

So there you are, I hope you have enjoyed looking at my favourite Instagram photos, I sure have!

Please leave me a comment telling me what your favourite social media is :)…don’t forget you can FOLLOW me on Instagram, find me @snosh90 🙂

Green Foiled Cream Eyeshadow Review from Born Pretty Store

I’m all up for make up products that make your life easier. If you are in a rush to get ready, one of the places you can save time is when creating an eyeshadow look.

I love products that can change your make up look dramatically with the least amount of effort, and the newest product I was kindly gifted from Born Pretty Store does just that. I actually have an exclusive 10% off discount code which you can use in the store…on top of that they offer free shipping worldwide too!

The product I got was this Highlighting Eyeshadow, which is only $1.99 and I chose the number 05 which is a gorgeous olive-y green shade. It is a curious little thing as it comes in a little round plastic ball with a screw top, where it holds a doe foot applicator so although it says powder, it’s actually more like a cream eyeshadow consistency.

What I also love is the colour range, if you take a look below you’ll see just how many colours they have!

1

The best thing about these is that although they come with a teeny tiny price tag, they actually swatch really pigmented and they last very well too. I’d recommend using a thin eyeshadow primer with these just to make sure it holds well, but other than that the quality is excellent and I’m definitely impressed.

bornprettystoregreen

As you can see I swatched this in different lights so you can see the colour payoff…what was interesting was that in warmer lights (like top right) it actually comes off more silvery than in cooler toned light.

I really love this and a quick swipe of this on the eyelid (and a blend, don’t get me wrong) as you are getting ready will help to make your make up more interesting and make it look like you’ve spent ages on it!

Remember, you can use the code RO1H10 on Born Pretty Store’s…store, to get 10% off!

5 Essential Products for Great Looking Eyeshadow

Make up tutorials are so popular now, with the rise of youtube and blogging there are so many professional looking and glamorous looks available for people to try.

I was thinking about the things that I use when I am doing a tutorial or even just make up on myself and I realised there are a few things that kind of make an essential kit for creating great eyeshadow looks!

I have narrowed this ‘essentials kit’ down to 5 things! (I know, well done me!).

**Look how well co-ordinated they all are**:

5ITEMSFORGOODEYESHADOW

GOING BACK TO BASICS:

USE A PRIMER 

Using a primer will give you an blank canvas and an even base to layer your eyeshadows over. I now do this step whenever I am doing an intense or matte eyeshadow look – especially because it helps to even out any veins or unwanted red tones on your eyelids. My favourite to use isn’t actually a ‘primer’ but a paint pot from MAC (aptly named, Painterly). It’s a great, cool toned taupe grey shade (this doesn’t sound that nice but it works really well as a primer!). I’ll put in a close up picture below 🙂

BUY A GOOD CREAM EYESHADOW

For those days where you want a bit of colour or something something on the lids, don’t spend half an hour faffing about with eyeshadow if you don’t want to. Invest in a good long lasting cream eyeshadow (now this doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot!) The one I love the most is the Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo in ‘On and On Bronze’. Loads of bloggers have raved about this shade and the formula is one of the best that I’ve tried! This doesn’t crease, which is amazing, and it lasts for aaaaages on the lid.

creameyeshadow

GET A DARK BROWN SHADOW STICK 

If you are in a hurry getting ready to go out or go to work but you need to give your make up a lift, get a simple dark brown eyeshadow stick. Using one of these you can smudge it along your upper (and lower if you are going for an evening even) lash line and using a fluffy brush to blend this out a bit. This helps to add a touch of definition and a bit of smokiness, it’s a great way to update your make up and add something different. I love the Laura Mercier Cocoa Caviar Stick :).

GET A GOOD PALETTE WITH MATTE SHADOWS

The Lorac Pro Palette pictured below is my go to palette when I want to create a good day time eyeshadow look, but it’s also got some great eyeshadows for evening. When you get a good palette with great quality matte eyeshadows it means you have a myriad (a lot) of eyeshadow looks waiting to be created. This palette has a brilliant pigmented black shade which can be pressed into the crease for an intense smokey eye, or you can use an angled liner brush to push it into the lower lash line.

loracpro

INVEST IN YOUR PERFECT TRANSITION COLOUR

Before starting on a layered eyeshadow look, or a smokey eye, I’d definitely recommend using a transition colour. This doesn’t have to be the exact same colour as the eyeshadows you are using but it is a great base layer for the colour going in your crease. I’ll let you in on a little secret…

narslaguna

Bronzers are perfect transition colours! If they are good enough for contour, they are good enough to use in the crease for a transition colour. The one I love using is NARS Laguna bronzer, which is mostly matte but has a touch of shimmer. It’s a great warm brown, which helps other eyeshadows blend into it with a nice gradient. Either I’ll use Laguna OR I’ll reach for the Taupe shade in the Lorac Pro Palette!

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my tips for getting the best eyeshadow look you can. Please feel free to leave me a comment, or click through to my Blog Lovin’ and follow me there :).

Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead!
