Why The Glossier Hype Is Real


Last year saw a lot of trends in the blogging world. We had the millennial pink situ, marble everything and of course who could forget.....Glossier. After waiting what felt like forever for this brand to come over to the UK (or at least be available in the UK), and lets be frank we went mental for it. It wasn't just the products themselves that got all the attention, it was the packaging that these beauties came in. Who would of thought bubble wrap would be in so much demand, and I for one am in love with my two pink bubble wrap sleeves that go everywhere with me. 



Glossier's price point isn't bad, however some might argue that for the money the products are quite small. Lets take the Glossier balm Dotcom, it's £10 for one tube which yes is pricey. It's not that bad when you compare to the likes of NUXE Rêve de Miel which is also £10 and 15ml, it's just the packaging is quite deceiving. 

I can hear you all now "but are the products actually good?". Well here's my run down on the products I have, and use on the regular because I actually genuinely love them (and how they look). 



Priming Moisturizer | Prepping my face with this bad boy in the mornings is so nice and works really well rubbed in with your fingers, or even with a nice soft brush. Especially good if you have dry skin as it's so moisture surged. Its quite a thin consistency and is quite cold which is lovely first thing to wake you up. I find it does the job perfectly for me as someone with very dry areas on their face, and works brilliantly with my Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue as a light and dewy base. It states on the package that it's 'buildable hydrating creme' however hadn't used it myself in this way as of yet. 

balm dotcom |I've got to come clean to begin with. I'm addicted to lip products, especially lip balms, and it surprises me that I only have one flavour/scent to my name. This little tube of wonderfulness works as a bloody brilliant lip balm that has a super long lasting nourishing moisture to it. The packaging means it's small and perfect to take around anywhere with you, as is a perfect prep for your lips before a matte lip! Now... I'm actually placing an order for some more right now!

Generation G lipstick |Becuase honesty is the best policy, the shade Like that I have was a little underwhelming when I tried it for the first time. I didn't expect for it to be that sheer, so when applying I was a little taken back. Having said this, since it's been in my handbag it's vastly become a work staple to give my lips a natural bit of colour (as has been a saviour throughout the time I had the sniffles as I literally looked like a ghost). A very pinky my lips but enhanced shade, its great to slap on when your on the go or without a mirror. 

Boy Brow |Now, we're getting to the good stuff. As far as I'm concerned, all other brow products could be discontinued and I'd be ok about it. So quick and easy to use, makes my brows look fuller in minutes, and looks oh so cute in my collection. I hate to think of how many brow products I've tried over time, and have finally found one I love. It mimics your natural brow hair and brushes on small stroke of brown or clear gel, that has the after effect of you spending ages in front of the mirror getting dem brows on fleek. If you're in the market for a new brow gel that does it all in one, look no further! 

Cloud Paint |In the past I've never been much of a blusher person. Being a typical English rose, my cheeks can be a very questionable shade that I've even been asked what blusher I'm wearing for me to try around and say "its just my cheeks". hmmmmm, moving on. But of course, I had to give these a go. I pop a little bit of these beauties on a stippling brush and stipple and blend away leaving a beautiful either peach or pink glow (peach being my fav). The end result is very natural and glow worthy, which I can't wait to bust out in the warmer months. 

Haloscope | After having a little experiment with this highlights, I found I much preferred it as a cupids bow, nose highlight and brow highlight. I'm not a fan of how it looks on my cheeks and am sticking to a powder highlight for that, but other than that it's so pretty. A slight iridescent sheen to it, it really does catch the light. This is probably the only product out of the above that I won't rush to repurchase, but would always use it if I had one. 

So, to me Glossier is so worth the hype. I bought in to it and loved it. All I can say is that you just don't know until you try the brand out, as everything is suitable for everyone. 

Try Glossier and get 10% off with my code.

Speak soon you lovely lot!

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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
