New Launch! Dirty Works – Coconut Body Wash

Hello All!

I have an exciting new launch to share with you – Dirty Works have launched a gorgeous Coconut Body Wash which will make you dream of golden sands and deep blue waters *insert heart eye emoji*. There’s something about coconut scents that scream summer – this launch from Dirty Works would go perfectly hand in hand with the Esteé Lauder Bronze Goddess Limited Edition perfumes and beauty products! You could even layer your scents to make them last longer <3.

Dirty Works Body Wash - Coconut

This body wash contains coconut oil and passionfruit extract to help keep your skin hydrated and smooth, with allantoin to help lock in even more moisture into your skin! In summer if you are getting your armies and leggies out then you know you need to keep your skin hydrated – I officially declare summer a no dry skin zone. 

Dirty Works Coconut Body Wash

What I’ve noticed about this body wash is that Dirty Works haven’t just gone and created a sickly sweet body wash and passed the scent off as coconut. The scent that you are left with from this body wash is a PURE coconut scent – fresh, not too sweet but completely refreshing. I really like the consistency of this too – a half arsed lather from a body wash is not pleasing.

Dirty Works Body Wash

I am enjoying using this body wash! It is perfect for using in the morning when you need to kinda clear the cobwebs from your brain. Dirty Works were kind enough to send me a coconut water to celebrate the launch too! This is an absolute bargain and it will last you ages – it only costs £2.50 and you can pick it up in a Sainsburys near you or online :D.

Have you tried anything from the Dirty Works range?

Seventeen Lipsticks – Seriously Underrated!

Out of all of my most used lipsticks, the one that I would say is the most affordable is a lipstick from the brand Seventeen. I only have two of these lipsticks but I would say they are some of my favourites!

I have a few MAC lipsticks in my collection, but you can get THREE 17 lipsticks for the price of one MAC one – and if you are looking for something moisturising, natural and sheer then I would definitely look at the Seventeen Mirror Shine lipsticks. They are such a bargain, at only £4.79!!!! That is insane for such a great quality lipstick, a lot of people are prepared to pay 3 – 4 times that for a lipstick nowadays.

The shade I have most recently bought is called ‘Belle’, which is a beautiful sheer pink with a hint of brown running through it. Usually before I use a lipstick I would always apply a lip balm so that my lips don’t get dry, but these lipsticks are so moisturising you don’t need to do that and they give such a natural finish.

17 belle lipstick

I also have the shade ‘Beehive’ which is a lighter, more nudey peachy colour which is just as beautiful as Belle. I have Belle in my handbag at the moment and I love it! I tend to just swipe these over my lips in the morning and because they are quite natural you can reapply easily if it wears off.

As the formula is sheer, I wouldn’t expect this to last for hours and hours. This is why it’s probably best to get the more nude, natural shades in this range. I would describe the formula for these lipsticks as ‘juicy’, which is a term that makes me cringe and want to crawl into a hole at the same time, but it is the best way to describe them.

17 belle lipstick swatch

As you can see from the swatch, this lipstick is very sheer and it’s not meant to last on your lips forever – it’s more of a wash of colour. Saying that though, if you have thin lips I would say because these are sheer, with a good lip liner they would help to plump up your lips and you could just easily reapply over the top if it wears off.

These lipsticks also come with a mirror inside the packaging!

17 lipstick mirror

Other than these lipsticks, I do like the 17 nail varnishes as they do some really gorgeous colours.

Is there anything else amazing from the 17 range that I might not have tried yet?

I hope you enjoyed this review!

The L’oréal Ultimate Blends Blogger Photoshoot!

Hi Guys! 

It’s been a few months since I went for a crazy photoshoot with L’Oréal, along with four other ladies who are interested in blogging. We won the chance to represent a range within the Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo and Conditioner ranges, so I thought now would be a great time to share the photos with you so you can see how they styled my hair/what outfits I wore and what it was like!

I did Vlog the day (my first ATTEMPTED vlog…attempted is the key word to remember) which you can see here 🙂 it’s over on my Youtube channel!

I was chosen to represent the ‘Shine’ range – I entered the competition on a whim and didn’t think for one minute that I would get one of the beauty blogger prize boxes, let alone win to represent one of the ranges!

An exciting email popped into my inbox one day and I was pleased to see that I had indeed won and was due to attend a photoshoot at the L’Oréal HQ in London!

I arrived and got my hair curled, while Ali was already getting her photos taken. Dani from Fashion Eye Dani then arrived not that long after that, and then Emma from Ellemmablog and Emma from Glossy Boutique arrived in the afternoon!

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the shoot:

l'oreal photoshoot2

**I have a lot of blusher on but they said that it needed to be that much to pick it up on camera!**

This was a very surreal experience as I’m not used to getting my photo taken by someone else and we had to smile LOTS. I was starting to get a very twitchy mouth from smiling so much! It was fun though 🙂

These photos are currently being used in Superdrug stores all over the country at the moment and Garnier are posting some on their Facebook/twitter/instagram accounts too which is really exciting!!

Before the shoot, Garnier had sent us a beauty bloggers box which had the range we were representing (mine was the Argan Oil Shine range) so we could test the products and give our opinions on them on the day. Luckily I actually liked the products they sent me so it was easy to talk about them *phew*.

Here is what we got in the beauty bloggers box!

Nyx Liquid Suede Matte Lipsticks – A Revelation!

Oh myyy goodness – I have been so excited to review these products!

A common theme throughout the past few weeks is that things I have seen popping up on my Instagram feed have been making their way into my shopping basket, be it physical or virtual (and I have paid for them, no pilfering going on around here).

The two shades I picked up in the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are beautiful. I bought the shades Soft Spoken and Vintage. Soft Spoken is a beautiful pinky brown and Vintage is a more deep 90’s brown which is AMAZING. Vintage in particular is so on trend that it almost pains me. Expect to see a lot of Instagram pics of these filling up my feed!

I already love both of these liquid lipsticks and everything about them is perfect…

Nyx Liquid Suede Lipsticks

NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK SWATCHES SOFT SPOKEN VINTAGE

They are pretty affordable – you can buy these for £6.50 and you get a lot for your money. The formula of the liquid lipsticks is thick and velvety, they apply really nicely because the doe foot applicator is just the right shape to outline and fill in your lips really neatly. *not so fun fact, I thought Doe Foot was actually a specific name for the applicator like Dauphort but then I realised in a D’oh moment*

Soft Spoken Nyx Liquid Suede Lipstick

The staying power of these liquid lipsticks is insane. I wore Soft Spoken ALL day today and although I could feel my lips become a tiny bit drier than usual it wasn’t anywhere near uncomfortable. I drank several teas (lol) and although I saw some product come off onto the mug like a trendy half smile, you couldn’t tell from looking at me that any had moved from my lips.

Vintage Nyx Liquid Suede Lipstick

I think if you are buying one of these I would always opt for the more nude shades where it doesn’t matter if it’s not crisp round the edges. They have bright reds and purples within this range but I’m not sure this formula is the best way to wear those colours.

I’m really happy with these liquid lipsticks and I can’t wait to wear them all the time!

OGX Niacin3 & Caffeine Shampoo and Conditioner

I had been wanting to try the OGX Niacin & Caffeine shampoo and conditioner ever since a picture of them popped up on my Instagram feed. I’m all up for anything hair related that stops breakage and encourages growth!

This is why I tried the range from OGX, but also why I started using the Lee Stafford Hair Treatment ‘For Hair that never grows past a Certain Length’. Though, I’m an eejit and forgot that it’s probably a good idea to use these two things separately to see which has a better result on my hair :/.

Anyway, I have been using the OGX Niacin & Caffeine shampoo and conditioner for about a week now and have been impressed with it so far! They were on promotion in Boots on a 2 for £10, but they have also been on promotion on a 3 for 2 as well! OGX do a third step product in this range which is a Root Stimulator Spray (I haven’t tried this yet).

ogx niacin and caffeine

I quite like OGX as a brand, I loved their Coconut Milk shampoo and conditioner range for the scent alone – but this is something new that really does claim to improve the condition of your hair.

The first thing I noticed when I started using it is the scent of this shampoo and conditioner. I did a Boots Haul Youtube video recently and I sniffed these in it and was amazed to find that they smelled like Red Bull. Like, wtf. I know these have ‘caffeine’ in but I never expected the range to smell like an energy drink, especially when their other ranges smell so good!

(BTW I hate Red Bull but am willing to set my olfactory differences aside for the benefit of my mop…for those of you who haven’t read the book Perfume that word means NOSE).

Smells aside, the shampoo is lovely – it’s quite a thick shampoo so this means a little goes a long way and you should be concentrating on your roots anyway. Apparently I have heard you shouldn’t actually need to shampoo the ends of your hair as the suds from your roots should run down and wash the ends of your hair anyway! If you shampoo your hair in a way where you aren’t knotting it up it also helps reduce breakage etc when you are brushing your hair after a shower.

The conditioner, again, is a very thick consistency and still has a hint of Red Bull about it. If this smell doesn’t incite memories of being hung over or being in Oceana (I’m looking at you, Vodbull Uni times) then you are well on your way to being a loyal user of this range.

The range feels very nourishing to use but in more of a scientific way. Stimulating the roots of your hair will definitely help with hair health and growth but I do think that my hair is in a better condition for using this range. I also love the Lee Stafford hair treatment being back in my life – it improves the condition of my hair SO MUCH and it has definitely helped the growth!

Here is my previous post earlier last year which shows you the before and after when I had my hair cut really short. I started using the Lee Stafford treatment and it had a really good effect on the growth of my hair!

Have you used this OGX range? Do YOU think it smells like Red Bull? Or is something wrong with me…

Thanks for reading, am about to go use this now 🙂

The Re-Launch of Roshni Reviews – Come take a look!

blog re launch

Hello Everyone!

This is so exciting to write, but as you read this post you will be reading it on my brand spanking new template and I have to say, I may have been away for a few days but THIS is what I’ve been working on :D.

I had been thinking for a while that I wanted to revamp my blog – 2 years is a long time to have the same template and I wanted a new one that showed off my content in the best way.

I hope you like the title banner! I was after something watercolour and didn’t like anything I found online AND I didn’t want to just use a random file from google images. I painted the background myself on paper with watercolour, reliving my youth spent trying every creative avenue possible. I’m quite proud of it (it might seem something tiny to you but I’m pretty chuffed!) so I hope you like it too, I was after something personal where I could think ‘YES, it worked!’

unnamed

Have a little play around with it! You can get to my Youtube really easily to watch my newest videos, all of my social links are floating around at the top and my favourite Instagram widget will show you all the random stuff I put on there :).

So, I won’t witter on at you, but welcome to the new Roshni Reviews and I hope you will return to the more funky design again and again for your weekly beauty fix 🙂

Thank you so much to everybody that reads this little internet space!!

Lots of love,

What to do when you’re in a Blogging Rut…

in a blogging rut 1

Quite honestly, my advice to you would be don’t blog. As in, don’t post – whatever you write will more than likely not be your best and you will not be happy with it (especially if you are as much of a fuss pot as me). Ironically, I am in one now (which you will think is weird as I am writing a post.) I wanted to share the way I deal with blogging ruts…

When you get stuck in a blogging rut, I really think the best thing is to embrace it and have a bit of a break! It doesn’t mean that you give up blogging, just make sure that you prepare posts when you feel like doing it and you’re passionate about something 🙂

Usually, you will have the time you need away from your keyboard and then all of a sudden you’ll see something or think of an amazing idea and eventually storm your way towards your laptop to write something.

When you have a blog, there can be a lot of pressure to put up consistent content, but remember that if your content itself isn’t consistently up to your own standards then your readers will more than likely notice.

So I suggest you relax and read up on my tips of what to do when you ARE in that blogging rut…..

(These things are useful for relaxing AND for blogging ruts)

  • Read a magazine –

Whatever you blog about, it’ll be something that you were interested in BEFORE you started blogging. Try and remind yourself of how much you loved it before you started blogging about it – read a fashion, beauty, craft or lifestyle magazine and just sit with a hot chocolate and unwind :). Relaxing means that you will more than likely actually spark something within yourself which will give you some inspo for future blog posts when you’re ready…or not, which is perfectly fine too :).

  • Have a bath –

If you are a beauty blogger like me then having a bath means that you will get to use some lovely products that will really pamper you. A Lush bath bomb, a nice hair mask or a pampering soak will help you unwind and lose any stresses that might have been blocking your blogging know how.

  • Read other people’s blogs and DON’T feel bad about your own –

If you’re like me, reading other people’s blogs would have inspired you to start your own. Get caught up on the posts from your favourite big bloggers and any bloggers you talk to you regularly! I’d take the opportunity to enjoy reading other people’s writing…this will be a good way to enjoy something as a reader rather than a writer 🙂

  • Watch shitloads of Netflix –

Having a break is important to give your brain a bit of a rest. My programme of choice is Pretty Little Liars because I am a season behind so it means I can binge watch it without having to wait for an episode to come out, haha. Getting yourself mentally distracted will at least make you forget about any pressure you are putting on yourself to blog! It’s important to relax if you want to stay creative :).

  • Catch up on your social media –

Catching up on your favourite Instagrammers, Tweeters and Facebookers will remind you what is trending in the blogging arena that you are interested in…sometimes I love going on Instagram to immerse myself in filters, amazing landscapes and awesome make up collections. When you see people linking pictures and posts don’t feel guilt – just remind yourself you are taking a break and that when you are ready you will get right on back to blogging and being bloody awesome!!!

Hope you enjoyed reading…what do you guys do when you are stuck in a blogging rut?

Thanks for reading,

Happy Valentines Day! :D

Hello Everyone! It’s February the 14th which means it is indeed Valentines Day and I hope you are all having a wonderful day spent with your loved ones.

Valentines Day is one of those days that’s pressurised – what presents do you get, what card do you get, where do you go for dinner, what do you wear SDLFISAHUS. I think most of the time it’s best not to force these kind of things, it’s easy to get carried away and forget why you’re actually meant to be celebrating. Go with the flow and see what happens – sometimes those are the best kind of celebrations!

I was contacted by a company called Third Love recently who sent me a hilarious image to share with you all that makes you think about Valentines day. Third Love sell really well made underwear basics and bras – with the best thing being that they do half cup sizes!! I thought that was genius as I’ve always struggled getting the exact perfect fit for my petite but womanly frame (womanly frame roughly translates to ‘oh I’ll work off that second slice of pizza in 2018’).

I’d definitely take a look at Third Love, their website looks amazing and I was so impressed – they also have a Fit Finder which will help you find the right type.

Take a look at the hilarious flow chart below and find out what your Valentines Day Bra Personality is! I prefer the term ‘Brasonality’ myself. Mine was a classic 24/7 T Shirt – screams boring but unfortunately comfort is priority with me – deal wide. 

thirdlove_vday_flowchart

I have a discount code for you all to get 15% off your order with Third Love (honestly, the are quite expensive but so are a lot of other brands out there where the quality is good – they look amazing so it might be worth a try!)

Enter the code VALENTINE15 at checkout for 15% off!

How have you spent your Valentines Day?

A) Eating all the chocolate in a 3 mile radius to where you are sitting

B) A romantic brunch by a lake

C) Wishing there were more episodes of Making a Murderer on Netflix

D) Drooling over Ryan Gosling (The Rosling)

E) All of the above
