ole henriksen vitamin c skincare set
Testing skincare has definitely become second nature to me. Every time I pass any sort of beauty counter I always rush over to see what's landed in the new-in section. Ole Henriksen has been on my radar for years as I've always found the brand intriguing but apart from their Pure Truth Melting Cleanser which I used a couple of years ago nothing else really appealed to me, until now. They've recently given themselves a makeover, updating their packaging and adding a bunch of new products to the mix. Naturally, I was most drawn to the Truth collection as it's all about Vitamin C. I've had this set for a good few months now and my skin has been absolutely loving it! Bring on the no-makeup days!

Ole Henriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme | 35ml | Recently I seem to be obsessed with all things Vitamin C and I'm a firm believer that having it in your skincare routine is key to maintaining healthy, radiant skin. Initially, I was quite wary of this product as I thought the gel texture meant it would feel siliconey on the skin (deffo not my thing) but when I tested it at the counter I was instantly reassured! It has a really luxurious texture without being too thick or greasy and it leaves my skin feeling super soft and bouncy and just prepped for the day! The slight peachy tint gives you an immediate brightening effect and the 3 sources of Vitamin C help to protect against pollution, stress and other environmental stressors which can leave you looking really dull and congested. It also contains Rose of Winter Extract, an anti-oxidant rich flower that helps soothe and condition. I've been absolutely loving this in the mornings when my skin needs a pick me up and it's also become my go-to for under foundation as it provides the perfect cushiony, hydrating foundation for a natural and flawless base. They've recently brought out a more intense C-Rush Brightening Double Creme which sounds lush! 

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum | 15ml | This has been a cult product for years and I'm so annoyed I didn't try it sooner! It's packed with Vitamin C which is not only crucial for collagen production but also helps to brighten, firm and protect against free-radicals. One of the main reasons I love this serum is it's super smooth, lightweight texture that absorbs straight away. I prefer my serums to be on the thinner side and go in with a slightly richer moisturiser so this combined with the Brightening Gel Creme is a match made in heaven! I use this mostly in the AM - especially if I'm going outside as I want my skin to have a protective barrier. It leaves my skin really plump and hydrated but I've also noticed an overall difference in the tone of my skin! I'm slightly addicted to the scent - think like orange jelly tots in a bottle. This is a deluxe sample but I find a little goes a long way and I will happily purchase the full size when this runs out! 

Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Cream | 7ml | I'd heard so many amazing things about this product from other bloggers and YouTubers and I'm happy to report it does not disappoint! I prefer a more creamy eye treatment as I'm quite dehydrated and this one has just the right amount of slip without leaving me puffy or disrupting my concealer. The formula is so smooth and buttery and it really helps to brighten my dark circles and minimise dehydration lines so all around it's a winner for me! It's boosted with Collagen, Vitamin C and is inspired by the highlighting effect of Banana Powder, containing special pigments that colour correct to give a brighter, more even appearance! It's become such a staple in my routine, I don't want to be without it!

new makeup from revlon 2020
I love discovering new beauty products, especially if they're on the more affordable side. Last year the high street makeup brands seriously upped their game, creating lots of exciting, innovative products - it's about time! I'd tried a couple things from Revlon in the past and really enjoyed them and over the last few months, they've added quite a few collections to their range which is super exciting! I've been lucky enough to be sent some of the recent additions from foundation and concealer to a variety of lip formulas and today I'm talking you through everything I've been loving and think you will too! 

I think everyone and their Aunt Janice has tried a Revlon foundation at some point (you know the ones) but for some strange reason, I've just never got round to it until their PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Foundation & Concealer* landed on my desk! Inspired by skincare, this super cute duo is loaded with antioxidants to protect against blue light and pollution whilst offering a beautifully smooth, creamy texture that blends seamlessly into the skin. They're a good medium-buildable coverage making them perfect as an everyday base and a great option for anyone who doesn't like heavy formulas or perhaps can't wear a lot of makeup due to school/work. I like to buff them in with a brush and together they provide a gorgeous satin finish that just looks like healthy skin. There's also the matching PhotoReady Candid Anti-Pollution Powder* which I've been absolutely loving to set my makeup as it leaves everything looking really blurred and natural but still mattified in the areas I need. It only comes in one shade so I would give it a swatch in store first if you have medium-dark skin. 

Another recent addition to the PhotoReady range is the Rose Glow Hydrating & Illuminating Primer* which comes in the cutest little pink bottle! You guys know I'm all about having a dewy base and this silky, water-based serum definitely gives a glow! Infused with oil beads, pearlescent and quartz, it works perfectly under makeup or alone for an overall luminous, more awake appearance. It does have the slightest hint of fine shimmer but once you've applied the rest of your base products you don't notice it and you're left with naturally glowing skin! I'm obsessed with this product and to top it off, it smells like sweet roses in the best way possible!

It's no secret that I love a good highlight but the majority of what's in my collection are powders so I'm really looking forward to properly testing out a liquid option. The Revlon Colourstay Endless Glow Liquid Highlighter* comes in 3 shades; Citrine, a pale champagne, Rose Quartz (the one I have) and Gold which would look stunning on darker skin. It comes in a small tube with a large doe-foot applicator and unlike most other liquid highlighters, this is a much thicker formula which isn't a bad thing but it does mean you have to work in sections when applying it. I've tried it a few times and I've found that blending it in with my finger is the best way to use it. It gives such a gorgeous sheen to the skin, it's probably not something I'd use everyday but for a night out this would look amazing under lights. Rose Quartz* is sadly a bit too dark and coppery for my fair skin but I think Citrine will be a winner!


I'm such a lipstick junkie and Revlon have just gone and fed my addiction even more with their recent launches! Starting with my favourite and most used formula, the Kiss Glow Lip Oils* are a balm/gloss hybrid, offering a sheer glowy tint of colour that feels super comfortable on and leaves your lips feeling really soft and conditioned. It comes in a bunch of shades but Glow'd Up Rose* is without a doubt my most loved (shocker it's a pinky/browny nude!) I also really like My Peach* on a no-makeup makeup day to add a bit of warmth to my face. They feel so hydrating on the lips and I love that you don't have to think to apply them! If you prefer a matte finish, you'll adore the Kiss Cloud Blotted Lip Colour*! A modern liquid lipstick that doesn't feel drying or leave your lips resembling a Greggs sausage roll. The velvety formula literally glides on and provides a lovely bold finish. It won't surprise you that my favourite shade is Whipped Hazelnut* (another pretty nude) but I've also worn Cherries On A Cloud* a couple times and it's just the most stunning true red. I still can't believe both formulas are under £10 - say whattt?

New In From Revlon

new makeup from revlon 2020

pixi skincare for beginners
I've gone through a lot of Pixi Skincare over the years and it's become one of the brands I go back to time and time again. It goes without saying that Pixi is best-known for their Glow Tonic which is a cult favourite in the beautysphere and for good reason. Over the past few years, their range has more than doubled in size and there are now six separate collections all designed for different skin concerns and naturally, it can be quite overwhelming to know where to start so today I'm sharing my top picks that I think everyone should start with! 

Everyone needs a decent cleanser in their routine and Pixi have a plethora to choose from but for me, there are two in particular that I find the most effective and easy to get along with. The Glow Mud Cleanser is a must-have for pretty much everyone but especially those who struggle with clogged pores, texture and breakouts. Formulated with 5% Glycolic Acid and soothing botanicals, the creamy paste helps to slough away dead skin and reduce blemishes leaving your face looking much brighter and smoother. If you already have a skin cleanser and you're looking for something to take off your makeup then Double Cleanse is where it's at! Half balm, half cream, this speedy duo is the perfect thing to use at night to thoroughly remove makeup and SPF whilst still being really gentle. It's packed with Vitamin E, Camellia Oil and Evening Primose which help to protect, nourish and moisturise. I like to use both products with a nice warm-hot flannel and my skin always looks lovely and fresh at the end!

I've been using Pixi toners for the longest time and I love that there's now something for everyone. As I mentioned before the Glow Tonic has and always will be their hero product. It's the perfect entry product to acid toners but is also great for people who already use AHAs and chemical exfoliants on a regular basis. The 5% Glycolic Acid and soothing Aloe Vera work to accelerate cell renewal, reduce the appearance of pores and help fade pigmentation and marks by gently removing dead skin. I've gone through two or three bottles over the years and it's still a firm favourite of mine! Their Vitamin C Tonic* is great slotted into your morning routine for a boost of anti-oxidants and luminosity! If you prefer something you can easily spritz on then I would highly recommend picking up the Hydrating Milky Mist or Glow Mist* which both offer quick hydration and can also be used to freshen up your makeup! The latter is probably better suited to those with drier skin as the formula contains 13 natural oils for a seriously dewy finish! I'm also a massive fan of their Glow Mud Mask which is perfect for a weekend pamper or even a mid-week pick me up when your skin is looking a bit dull and needs reviving! It's also super easy to remove!

I've had mixed experiences with Pixi serums in the past but their Vitamin C offering is one I can't be without it! It's so important to have a product like this in your routine, especially if you live in a busy city surrounded by pollution and other environmental aggressors. The formula is super thin and lightweight (not gritty like a lot of other Vitamin C products) and absorbs quickly into the skin, giving a gorgeous healthy glow. Vitamin C and Ferulic Acid help to protect against sun damage, free-radicals and also promote collagen production, building a better barrier and gradually evening out the skin tone for a brighter, more flawless appearance! It really is an amazing product! To seal everything into place I've been loving the Rose Ceramide Cream* which almost feels like butter on the skin but isn't greasy or heavy in the slightest making it an amazing base for makeup! It's perfect for this time of year when the weather starts taking a toll on your skin and you need some serious TLC! I'd also highly recommend their Beauty Sleep Cream for the evening. It kind of works like a leave-on mask and my skin always looks so radiant and plump the next morning!

dreamy makeup duo from by terry primer powder
By Terry has been on my list of brands to try ever since I started blogging all the way back in 2015 - I don't even want to think about how long ago that was. Moving on... All my favourite old school bloggers raved about their makeup range but at the time it just wasn't in my price range. I'd always planned on picking up a few bits at some point then last year out of nowhere, an email landed in my inbox from By Terry asking if I was interested in trying some of their most loved products and I honestly can't explain how shocked and excited I was! You guys know that my base is the most important step in my makeup routine so I was very excited to see a primer and face powder in my delivery! The By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra range is really interesting as it's designed to perfect your skin and help with large pores, fine lines and blemishes all whilst providing a matte finish and still being hydrating. This isn't an easy combination to find but this duo has nailed it and has seriously changed my makeup game for the better!

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Primer* | So naturally it's only right we start with the primer and I'm not exaggerating when I say this is hands down the best one I've ever used! Usually, I steer away from anything mattifying as my skin is quite dehydrated and the texture can be way too siliconey or feel super drying and suck the moisture out of my skin but I can confirm the Hyaluronic Hydra Primer* does neither of those things - hurrah! A quick note on the packaging, it's a weighty squeezy tube which looks and feels really high-end and has survived being lugged around in my makeup bag for weeks which is an important factor for most of us! The primer itself has a creamy almost mousse-like texture without being greasy, drying or uncomfortable. It spreads beautifully on the skin and leaves a light hydrating film with just enough tackiness to glue my foundation in place and ensure a long-lasting finish. I like to focus it mainly on my forehead, nose and chin as it's perfect for smoothing out any uneven texture, filling in and blurring pores and giving a much more uniform canvas to start with. This pretty much ticks the boxes for everyone but if you have combination or oily skin, in particular, you will absolutely love this! 

By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra Powder* | I definitely had a bit of a powder moment in 2019. After discovering the glorious effects of baking and highlighting with face powders I've become obsessed with finding new ones. Following the hydrating theme, this loose translucent powder is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and reduces the appearance of pores, fine lines, shine and blemishes without looking dry or cakey. You can use it on bare skin to take down shine and even out any problems areas or to bake and really lock that foundation in for good. It's a really versatile powder and it's one of the only ones I've tried that doesn't make me look flat or like I'm wearing 100 layers of foundation which I really struggle to find having dehydrated skin. This particular shade has no colour and can come off very light on the skin, especially if you're baking so if you have a medium-dark skin tone then I would definitely check out the tinted version which comes in a bunch of different shades and undertones which should stop the risk of looking ashy and getting flashback!
