Nivea | is it worth it?

lucys blog

With these products I did receive these at Christmas as a present. Some of them I have become obsessed and included into my routine and others I have re-gifted to other people that I hope would love to use.

Now when I did a google search I have found out that sadly Nivea are not cruelty free or even vegan, as I love a good cruelty free product. But some of these products I have repurchased again and I have re-gifted some of these products to friends and they have become obsessed with the products as well.

This product came at perfect timing at Christmas as I was running out of makeup remover. Although this does say for sensitive skin I have noticed that this really helps hydrates my skin at the points that I do need my skin to hydrate.

What does it smell like?

I have not noticed…

My Favorite Drugstore Makeup

Creating pretty Things

IMG_3499 2Hello everyone!

I just wanted to share a few of my favorite drugstore products that I use everyday. These products are affordable and work just as good as the high end makeup! I love collecting makeup so it is important for me to make sure I spend money on affordable items so I may also purchase high end products. I usually purchase high end eyeshadow palettes and keep the rest of my makeup from the drugstore.

  • Foundation: Maybelline Fit Me Matte in #322
  • Concealer: Maybelline Instant age rewind in Medium
  • Face powder: Maybelline Fit Me Matte #310
  • Translucent powder: Airspun loose face powder in Translucent Extra Coverage
  • Blush: Milani baked blush #02 Rose D’oro
  • Eyebrow cream: Elf cream eyeliner in Coffee

  • Lipstick: L’oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in #314 Nude Allude

Review: Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Creamy Body Wash

Thoughtful Pigeon

soap-and-glory-righteous-butter-creamy-body-wash-1.jpg

The Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Creamy Body Washwas one of those products that you get and sits in the back of a cupboard for ages, for me anyway.

The tube holds 250ml and costs £7, though this tube will last a long time as a little goes a long way.

This is a 3-in-1 product designed for cleansing, shaving and moisturising so it’s sort of a body wash, shaving cream and moisturiser all in one.
