New Discovery: Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream*

There has been a lot of hype about this particular product over the last few years. It has been endorsed by celebrities and influencers high and low for it’s multi purpose uses and amazing results. I had been meaning to try it for some time but had just never got around to it. But if a product is good enough for Kate Hudson, Rhianna and Lauren Conrad, it’s good enough for me!

Egyptian Magic is an all-natural, multi use product that really can be used pretty much anywhere on the body. Perfect to bring on holiday to save space in the suitcase or to keep on your bedside table to add to your night routine!

The formulation of the balm is based on one which was created thousands of years ago in the lands of the Pharaohs! Packed with just six natural ingredients including olive oil, beeswax, royal jelly, bee pollen, honey and bee propolis, the cream is free from additives, preservatives, parabens, fragrances and chemicals. The product has never been tested on animals either – bonus points!

The cream is an emollient style balm in the pot that melts down to an easy to spread oil when warmed up between the fingers.

So how have I been using this magical little pot?

HD Brows: Lip Defines Review*

When you said HD Brows to me in the past, I thought brow treatment, not make up products. However, the brand has a huge cosmetics line including not only brow products, but base, eye and lip products too!

Over the past few weeks I have been trying out one of the most recent launches in the HD Brows make up line, their Lip Define pencils, and I’m ready to share my thoughts with you all!

Review: Emma Hardie Midas Touch Revitalising Eye Serum*

Skincare heavyweight, Emma Hardie has recently launched a new eye serum to the Midas Touch family, dubbed a “lightweight yet powerful anti-ageing formula”.

The eyes are the first place on the face that start to show signs of ageing. With that in mind, I try to pay a bit of extra attention to the area as prevention is definitely better than cure.

Over the past year or two, I’ve gotten much better at remembering to apply eye cream at night and I was excited to add this new product to my collection!

Skincare Sunday: Antipodes*- the Organic Brand you Need to Check Out

If you seen my post a little while ago featuring my dry skin hero products, you will have seen a rave review about the Antipodes Aura Honey Mask. If you didn’t see it, why not? Jokes. But it can be viewed here.

Since trying the amazing Aura mask, I have fallen in love with the brand and their products as a whole. Everything is nutrient rich, natural and organic so you are using the best ingredients when using this brand. You can’t not like this brand. Their ethos is very eco friendly, their packaging is fully recyclable and biodegradable. They believe in sustainable cultivation of local ingredients from New Zealand. They’re just all round, good, environmentally friendly, eggs!

In the interests of beauty blogging, I have tried out a number of products from the brand over the past few months and I’m ready to give you all the low down. Spolier alert, I love it all.

My First delve into IT Cosmetics*

A little while back I almost collapsed with excitement when I seen an email from IT Cosmetics in my inbox asking if I would like to try some products! The brand had been on my radar for quite some time and I had always meant to try it out any time that I was in the States. When I had seen that it had finally launched in the UK, in store at Boots , I had already been planning my purchases.

The brand very kindly sent me out two of their products to test out for myself:  the Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Transforming Eye Shadow Palette and the Hello Lashes 5 in 1 Mascara.

So, were they hits or misses?
