Perricone MD - No Foundation Foundation


No Foundation Foundation SPF 30

The first advanced anti-aging, multi-tasking translucent foundation with non-chemical SFP 30 protection.


"As a dermatologist to some of the most famous faces in the world, their special needs often become inspiration for the creation of new products. When more than one celebrity make-up artist asked Dr. Perricone for a type of foundation that would let the skin's natural radiance and beauty shine through, No Foundation Foundation was born. Created to keep skin looking dewy and flawless, this unique formula delivers many benefits of a traditional foundation without the heavy matte finish, which emphasizes the tiniest skin imperfections. No Foundation Foundation is a multi-purpose product that provides natural translucent coverage, corrects skin undertones, instantly smoothes fine lines and boosts skin's natural moisture throughout the day, all the while delivering antioxidant benefits."

BENEFITS
- Treatment, cosmetic and SPF 30 all in one.
- Lightweight and suitable for all skin types.
- Gives a natural, healthy, dewy finish.
- Corrects skin undertones, smoothes fine lines and boosts skin's natural moisture.
- Paraben-free.




















I received this 7.5ml sample in my Latest in Beauty Christmas calender and have just got round to trying this... I was amazed it was my colour (as BB creams don't suit my skin at all) and blended in so well.... felt lovely on my skin, didn't quite cover my rosacea but i wasn't expecting it to, to be honest but the coverage is still great as I do not like any full coverage foundations, they just look cakey on me and after an hour I just want wash it off. Here's a picture of me today wearing the No foundation foundation. I also love the fact its got spf 30 in it so great for those summer days out and about where you just what that extra coverage. It lasted all day with out any touch ups or anything and didn't leave me feeling like i want to scrape it off lol witch is fab!

What do you think of it on me? Have you tried it your-self? Whats your opintion on this? Its a quite pricey so I don't think I'll be buying this as it retails for about £47 for a 30 ml bottle! you can pick up a bottle here or not lol. Might try and swap a few samples if any one on the facebook swapping pages have this up for swaps because £47 is just a tad out my price range!!

Butter London Gifts!



Hiya Beauties, how's it going?? I've been rubbish with the whole spending ban.... ah well, I'm not as bad as I used to be but I honestly don't need any more beauty products lol, I might of picked up a few bits from the Space NK website that I've been eyeing up for the past month only ordered coz there were offering free delivery so saved my self a fiver there lol.....

Any way back to these goodies in the picture above.... My very lovely and generous friend Sandra from BeautyBalm sent these to me as a thank you as I was a little naughty but couldn't help myself when I saw a few thing she liked or wanted and also i had a few bits Sandra wanted but asked me to keep them for her, for when her spending ban is over so collected a few things and sent them all together too her and I think she was pretty pleased hehehe, I love giving little gifts, making friends happy puts a big smile on my face! :D

Butter London Handbag Holiday cuticle Oil you can buy this here. "Butter London Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil is a cocktail of vitamins and natural oils for your nails. It smells great, works even better - it's every girls handbag essential. Fun memories for you, intensive nourishment for your cuticles!" What can I say about this?? OMG it smell LUSH! Just like coconut & pineapples, well does smell just like Holiday's! I keep this in my bed-side box (will tell you about this another day) I apply this every few nights to keep my nails lovely and healthy, and i cant stop sniffing my hands after i apply this!! <3 Thank you Sandra!!! <3

Second item Sandra sent was Powder Room witch is a nail polish remover, you can pick one up here. "A gentle acetone-free formula to remove all traces of nail lacquer in an instant while maintaining the health of your nails." I wish this came in a bigger bottle as its amazing!! Didn't leave my nails brittle or dry and took the nail polish off with ease & didn't have that horrid smell polish remover normally has, really does smell like baby powder! I love it! 

Have you tried Butter London? This is my first time and deffentlly not my last will be repurching these items and might even try there polishes! <3

What do you think of Butter London? Let me know :D

Skinetica


What can I say about this product apart from IT WORKS! Yes the packaging may look plain and boring but OMG you really see a difference with in 24 hours!

"Skinetica contains no toxic chemicals (unlike most acne traditional treatments) and so has no side effects on the skin. No redness, soreness etc. Also Skinetica does not stain hair, clothes, bedlinen etc. Very comfortable to use as it is kind to even sensitive skin."


Skinetica is non toxic and non staining. Skinetica a new anti-blemish skincare treatment
Skinetica - skin clearing and blemish removal, fast acting - soothes, calms and clears...(Previously known as Acnigon - only the name has changed - this fantastic product is exactly the same)
Skinetica is a genuine product that actually does what it says on the bottle! A unique new solution that clears unsightly breakouts with visible improvements in 2-3 days.
No harsh chemicals
No side effects
Kind to skin
Dermatologically tested
Non Toxic, non staining, non greasy
Purchase online - order yours here
Also available from your local independent pharmacist


Even though this product is amazing I couldn't use it all over my face as I have two patches of eczema on my face and this really dried out my skin due to the alcohol in it  and made my eczema worse, so I only dab it on my spots and blemishes and this does the trick! 

Have you tried Skinetica out? What do you think of it? You can pick up a bottle Here for only £9.99 including postage, not to bad for a 100ml bottle, Lasts quite a while too.

Oops i did it again!

Hiya Beauties! So here's a little spending Ban update, was feeling a little crappy on Thursday and ended up going out down the Kings Road just to get out the house, I only live a few bus stops from Slone Sq / Kings Road!! 

I went into boots and saw the new No7 Beautiful skin cleansing brush for £15, Down from £24.95 so i had to pick one up as the clearsonic is a little out my price range! After seeing this online i just had to get one for myself, I also pick up some Intuition razor blades for £6.59, I only paid £1.59 as I had a £20 gift card from Christmas! :D
I then went into Space NK and pick up a 30ml Caudline Beauty Elixir to try out as I've heard so many good things about this, and tried it this morning for the first time and WOW amazing my skin is soo soft  and moisturised even after 15 hours!!! I picked this up for £11 but have seen this a lot cheaper online here.
I also when into L'Occitane to pick up my free hand cream using the email i received, I also got 15% off anything in the store so i picked up a mom and baby face and body cream priced £13.50 but only paid £11.48 for it, will give this to my sister who's giving birth in 5 weeks time. I picked up the Honey shea butter hand cream, smells lush!


I then went to house of Fraser in Victoria to use up my voucher from my birthday from last May, I couldn't find anything i needed or wanted so I went over to Pandora in there and asked if they did a bracelet in my size as I have very large wrist's :( due to my condition (Larsen Syndrome) so when she brought the largest size out (23') and put it on me and it fit i squeaked a bit inside and say yes I want it!! I also pick out 2 charms. My voucher was for £100 so only paid £55 on top of the voucher! wahoo! And as it was Valentines day i popped into M&S and picked up the special Dine in for 2 for £20 and got some free Pink champagne and heart shaped chocolates! <3 Bonus! 

Over all I spent £99.07 in cash and £120 in vouchers!
VERY Naughty seeing I'm on a spending ban!!!

So did you do anything nice for Valentines day? Get any nice gifts off friends or your partner? Broken your ban? Let me know, I like to be nosey!

Ruby Hammer Everyday eye palette

"Experiment with colour to take you from day to night, 
providing all you need to line, define & contour your eyes"


Hiya Beauties! I came across this bright pink palette in Debenhams, so i opened it there and then i was like oooooooo this looks like a very good dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette, there are 10 colours, one of witch being a matte black,witch is fantastic. You also get a sponge tip applicator and a brown mini eyeliner all this for a small fee of £10 BUT i picked this up before my spending ban for only £3 in the sale!! I also picked one up for my sister for her birthday box im doing her! You can also pick one up here for your self. Even if this isn't for you, it would be great as a gift for some one or even a great starter palette for a teen :D


The colours are fab for an everyday look and you can also use the black and silvery blue to make evening smokey eye looks, here are some swatches of the colours with any primer or base. I do recommend you use a base to help the colours pop and last, despite the price i think its a great palette with some beautiful colours. I did try wetting a liner brush and mixing a few colours to make an intense line witch looked lovely.




 So have you heard of this brand before? or Do you own any make up from Ruby Hammer for Debenhams? Let me know, would love to know your view on this palette!
