The BEST Lipbalm In The Universe

Hey Guys! 

A ‘kind of’ repurchase has ignited a passion in my that I never thought would appear. A couple of years ago I spotted an Elizabeth Arden gift set on promotion and inside it there was a teeny sample sized tube of the Eight Hour Cream.

I was tempted so I ended up buying it and trying out the protectant as a lip balm – and KABLOOM my life was changed. (I feel like Gretchen Wieners trying to get a word to catch on).

My September Beauty Wishlist :D

Hi Guys! 

I’ve posted wish lists before and this is definitely one of my favourite types of posts to write. It has a kind of PURSE FREEDOM that is very liberating, but potentially very dangerous. Somehow, posting about having/buying these products makes you marginally more comfortable with the idea of parting with money for these products.

It’s a double edged sword.

Here we go! Go grab a nice beverage and read up on my latest beauty lusts:

NARS Orgasm Blush – With Swatches!

If there’s one product that’s been on my wishlist for a very long time, it’s this one. The NARS Orgasm blusher is a cult classic and I had always wanted to try it.

I’d say this NARS blush isn’t really for those who are shy with make up – this looks so pretty on but it’s quite an intense flush of colour (as the name would suggest!). This would look great with a full on make up look and it is so pigmented a little goes a long way.

I picked my limited edition blush up at Feel Unique and it came in a beautiful NARS box with a pretty summery overlay – you know that this is special and no wonder so many beauty followers love it!

Zoella Sweet Inspirations Range – She’s Nailed it Again…

If you have an internet connection then I am sure that you have heard the word Zoella before – or even watched one of her videos.

She’s a Youtube made blogging icon and has recently expanded her mini empire to have beauty and bath products, she now has two books and has worked with lots of brands in collaborations!

I was a big fan of her first ever beauty range, which was first launched within Superdrug – this one would be classed as the ‘original’…my favourite product from that range was her cute little fragrance called ‘Blissful Mistful’The fragrances have been amazing each time, with the second one ‘Let’s Spritz’ being pretty good but it didn’t manage to knock the original off my favourites list! It was important to be one of the first beauty bloggers in the digital queue on Feel Unique when the THIRD range came out and I can now show you what I got! **BTW big props to Feel Unique for amazing service – everything came like, shrink wrapped and completely damage free, pretty good considering one was a perfume!

Zoella Sweet Inspirations Range

Zoella Sweet Inspirations Mist

Zoella Body Mist

This mist is really beautiful, the whole of this range is designed to be like a French patisserie in it’s packaging and the smell matches this vibe too. It’s full of almond scents – sweet and soft like a freshly baked cake :).

This kind of scent really makes me smile, 1. because it costs £8 only, and 2. because it’s the kind of long wearing scent you can put on and every now and then in the day you can catch a glorious whiff of it and it reminds you that you actually smell of something nice. Unfortunately it’s pretty much just gone on sale and it’s out of stock lol. 
Zoella Sugar Dip Bath Salts

The bath salts were something different that I wanted to try – she’s never done bath salts before, only like fizz bars and stuff. So this was really exciting to me and I knew that this would work really well with the kind of scent she’s picked for this range.

Zoella Bath Salts - Resealable!

You can tell she is actually a normal person when you look at this product – she’s common sensical (yeah, that’s a phrase, pshh) enough to include a little sticker to reseal the pack! These bath salts have a slightly strong macaron scent than the mist as they essentially need to be concentrated…but they are lovely to use, dissolving in a bath within around 5 – 10 minutes and creating a lovely soft scent. These only cost £6 so they would make a perfect birthday gift!

Scented Bath Salts - Zoella

The Double Créme body cream is a lovely play on words and an even lovelier scent. I know this is going to just sound like I’m raving about everything but I actually do love everything I got – the packaging is ON POINT and the scent is just so enjoyable to wear. The body cream is only £5 – bargain!

Have you tried anything from this range or the ranges before? What’s your favourite product?

You need something in your life…it’s called ‘Fushi’

I discovered that the Fushi’ Really Good Hair Oil (DAMMIT WordPress stop auto-correcting this to Sushi) existed whilst on Instagram, one of the beauty bloggers I follow posted a picture of her empty bottle and I was very intrigued!

I had been looking for a hair oil that promotes healthy hair – something that hasn’t got lots of chemicals in it and has benefits of stronger, healthier hair after use. ‘Fushi’ Really Good Hair Oil is available from Feel Unique – that’s where I got mine from and it contains 98.5% organic ingredients! It even has a batch date on it…

Fushi Hair Oil!

I have started to use this twice a week, applying this into dry hair and massaging it right into the roots and lengths of my hair. This isn’t the kind of hair oil you could leave in your hair and go out with – it’s an oil so it looks like one, so unless you like the ‘Dipped in a Vat of Chip Fat’ look – don’t leave the house! Haha.

This oil contains Brahmi, Argan, Indian Jasmine and Coconut oil and the scent turns out to be quite jasmine-y, heady and incensey. I actually really enjoy using this oil because it isn’t massively heavy (considering the ingredients) and I quite like the scent.

Fushi Hair Oil 2

I have noticed my hair has been growing quite quickly recently, but I have been TRYING to do this and am therefore using a number of different products (like the OGX Niacin & Caffeine Shampoo & Conditioner and the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment). I have been using the hair oil twice a week and leaving it in for around 2 hours each time. If you REALLY want the oil to penetrate the hair you can use a hot steamy towel to wrap around your head once the oil is in (obvs) and it will soak in deeper into the hair shaft! (LOL shaft).

What kind of effect does it have on my hair? WELL look at the picture below – this shows you just how shiny my hair was after using the hair oil for the very first time:

Fushi Hair Oil Effect

I am really impressed! Now it’s become part of my weekly routine and I’m really enjoying using it and knowing it’s doing good for my hair…

Have you guys tried anything out from the Sushi, I mean, Fushi range?!

Thanks for reading guys,

Beauty Retailers that get it right…

Working in marketing, we are often trying to think of ways we can get and maintain loyal customer bases. Delivering above and beyond customer care is something most companies try to achieve, the ‘Amazon’ way of operating.

When it comes to beauty brands, for me there are a few drug store and premium beauty retailers that really hit the nail on the head in terms of providing a more tailored shopping experience.

Here are my top 3 Beauty Retailers, and why I think they are treating customers right:

1. Boots –

For a drugstore that sells a myriad of products, Boots Advantage card system is just brilliant. In particular, the offers that they send you are actually useful, and when scanning my emails I tend to open the ones from Boots as they usually send really good deals.

One of the promotions they do that is great for a more tailored customer communication is double Advantage card points during your birthday month (I am turning 25 in January :(). Although to some people this might not seem like a big deal, but providing double points for the whole month means you can really build your money up. I am an advocate of the advantage card system, and I have saved around £70 worth of points over the years!

This kind of promotion is a bit more personal, and keeping things personal whilst maintaining a massive commerce company is getting the best of both worlds.

2. Space.NK – 

Again another birthday promotion, but Space.NK have offered a free Sarah Chapman sample, when the full size item costs £40!

Only niggle with this is that to redeem it online, you do have to purchase something else but it makes sense because of the delivery…I’ll just have to take a sneaky birthday trip to London at some point!

3. Feel Unique – 

In the beauty industry, getting customers to repurchase from the same company is a big win, and for me Feel Unique have adopted some really useful tactics to make this reality.

I purchased some Morrocanoil a while ago, and whilst scanning my promotional emails in my inbox I came across one entitled ‘Is Your Favourite Morrocanoil Running Low?’

Snip20150104_5

The fact it contained a product I had previously bought in the subject line made me open it, and basically it has based the sending of the email assuming that it is time for you to repurchase the item you originally bought, because you have started to use it up.

This is a very simple idea, but I think this is a great tactic, and it would be ideal for a product like Seche Vite, which I use regularly and actually need to repurchase now!

What are your favourite beauty retailers?
