The greasy hair saviour - L'Oreal extraordinary clay


I've been struggling with greasy roots for years, so much so that I'd practically given up trying out new shampoos and treatments, and had just resigned myself to being an every day washer.  When I first heard about the Elvive Extraordinary Clay range I wasn't even interested, because these things never seem to work for me, but after I saw a few positive mentions popping up on social media, and then a special offer in Boots, I gave in and decided to try it out.

Crown Brush 10 colour concealer palette and face brush review


So this is going to be a review of the Crown Brush 10 colour concealer palette (and brushes), but forgive me if at any point I call it a 'contour palette' by mistake, as that's all I see when I look at this array of light to dark creamy shades!

Finally, a hands-free hairdryer, and it's a game changer!


I've never been one of those people that's just naturally good at doing their hair.  I can't french-plait, I can't fish-tail, and I certainly haven't mastered the art of the round brush bouncy blow dry, always blaming it on the fact that I just don't have enough hands for the job.  It was a good few years ago that I remember first moaning about needing a hands-free hairdryer for this exact issue, and now it's actually a reality!

Three perfect primers


Okay well maybe not 100% perfect, I just liked the alliteration, but these are certainly three really good primers that I’ve been switching between lately depending on what tricks my skin feels like getting up to.  I never go without a primer under my foundation, as not only do most primers make your makeup last longer, they can prep the skin, hide redness, add radiance, balance oil and hydration,  blur lines and do all sorts of other good things in an attempt to make my finished face look more flawless.

The March beauty breakdown


March has been such a busy month for me with my birthday and two trips away (one to a log cabin in the woods which I blogged about here - Log cabin weekend away in Norfolk - and one to Rome over my birthday which I shall be writing about very soon) - I've been very lucky!  I'm not complaining of course, but I've become a little bit behind with everything I want to blog about, so my beauty breakdown round-up is the perfect opportunity for a fast catch up to get you up to speed on some of the items I've been excited to share this month... no April Fools here!
