It's all about the base by Rimmel


Having taken full advantage of the most recent 3 for 2 offer in Boots I finally treated myself to the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation in Ivory. There is so much love for Rimmel bases and having not tried any before, so I chose this. 

Shade- The shade range is pretty good and was happy to find they went pale enough to match my skin tone which I can honestly say is pretty much spot on. I could probably go lighter however like to give my face a little more colour as your face sees the sun more anyway. 

Formula- Its quite thick however not really thick and gloopy. When applying it to your skin it feel really light, very similar to how the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser feels on the skin. It has quite a strong fragrance to it which isn't off putting but is quite strong. Theres no need to have to really buff this into the skin as it's effortless to blend and sits on the skin very lightly for a full coverage base. It covers well and reduces the amount of concealer I need to wear. It does well to cover my rosy cheeks but I still feel better wearing my green cheek primer. 

Staying power- I haven't had the opportunity to wear it for a whole 25 hours however for a whole day of 9-9 it did pretty good and when cleansing I had to use quite a few cotton pads to get it all off my face. Even at the end of the day when looking in the mirror it was clear that I had something on my face but didn't look too oily or dry. 

To op it off it has a pump!!

Have you tried this foundation or another from Rimmel? What do you think?

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
