I'm in (seventh) heaven!

Seventh Heaven Moisturising Face Base
This is just a mini monday review about my favourite product at the moment.

In my December GlossyBox (Which I  LOVED) I received the mememe Seventh Heaven moisturising face base. It's a moisturising face base enriched with Shea Butter, Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene to prep and prime skin. It smells really citrussy (I know that's not a word), and feels really fresh and tight but in a good way, like it's giving me a mini facelift! 

I apply this after cleanser, wait 5 minutes then apply foundation. My foundation lasts longer and it just glides on. I purchased the larger 30ml version after the initial 10ml I was sent as I used it all the time it ran out so quickly. 

I personally love this and will repurchase it when it runs out. There are 2 sizes available on their website, 10ml and 30ml, the 10ml is £2 here, highly recommended as you can try it to see what you think so you don't have to commit yourself to the 30ml, and I think more companies should do trial size products. The 30ml is £15 here.

I am new to the mememe range, having never tried anything before but heard lots of good things about them. In my order along with Seventh Heaven were the Correct and Perfect concealer and the Angels with Halo's skin illuminator. 

The Correct and Perfect concealer is similar to the Bobbi Brown's Cream Concealer. It has a creamy concealer in the top and a setting powder in the bottom. I found the concealer a lovely consistency and the powder is very finely milled. However when I used this under my eyes, it was too orangey for me, I think it'd be better on spots and blemishes than under eye circles. I have the shade Nude, which is the middle shade, from 3 choices. It's £6.99 from their website.

Angels with Halos Skin Illuminator

The Angels with Halo's skin illuminator is pink, which isn't what I was expecting, I thought it's be more like a solid version of Benefit's 'High Beam'. Its supposed to blend over foundation for illuminate and contour the face. I haven't noticed any change with it to be honest, but I am willing to keep trying it, if mememe would like to let us see a before and after with this I am willing to see the results as I cannot see any difference. Has anyone else tried this and found it works? I'd love to know what I'm doing wrong. 
It is currently £7.99 was £9.99 and can be found here.

There are a couple of thing I would like to try from their range, and would love to hear from anyone who has tried them to see what they're like.

Goddess Rocks
These are the Goddess Rocks that is a multi-task bronzer, eye shadow and highlight and looks, cute with a fun name, who doesn't want to be a Goddess?
These are currently £10.50 from £12.50 here.

FatCat Mascara

I would like to try their mascara's out being a massive mascara junky so would love to hear anyone else's thoughts on them.

Enjoy your monday's!

L'oreal Triple Resist

I have found my hair's saviour and it's all thanks to L'oreal Elvive Triple Resist. I hadn't heard anything about it, or seen any reviews, in fact when I typed it into Google nothing about it came up. I was intrigued by the sleek black and magenta packaging and it really stood out to me so I gave it a go, being the beauty product junky I am!
It's the new hair range that J-Lo has been advertising and I have to say the promotions and advertisements are very well done, eye catching and sleek. There are 4 products in the range, the shampoo, conditioner, treatment root spray and a masque. 

This is what L'oreal says about the triple resist range: " You put your hair through daily torture and sometimes it can lack essential nourishment. Weakened, your hair has a tendency to break and fall out. Introducing new Elvive Triple Resist shampoo enriched in ARGININE + PROTEIN. The formula provides a triple action: reinforced, nourished from root to tip and stronger. "

I have been using the shampoo, conditioner and treatment root spray for about two months now and I have found less hairs falling out in the shower and in my hair brush. Since having my daughter just over a year ago (it was her birthday last week!) my hair has been falling out more than usual but now I have put a stop to it. 

The shampoo lathers up really well and the conditioner glides on nicely. I use the root treatment first thing in the morning and when my hair is damp after a shower in the evening. I never normally use anything directly at the roots as I always thought it'd make my hair greasy but it soaks up as you massage it in instantaneously and feels like my roots are 'drinking' it up. I am yet to try the masque but can only think it'll be as good as the rest of the range. I personally like the smell of the range but I know it might be too sickly for others.

I bought this in boots but cannot find it on their website so I thoroughly recommend the Triple Resist range, and it's sometimes on offer like 3 for 2 or half price so I stock up!

Happy New Year!

A great big (belated) HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!

I hope you all had a lovely time over Christmas and got some lovely presents. I really enjoyed this Christmas as it was my daughters first and it was so nice to have the magic back at Christmas and it was a really nice family time although very hectic! My favourite present was a gorgeous pandora bracelet from the Mr and a beautiful charm from my beautiful baby, but my strangest present has got to be a bathmat! What did you all get?

We had a nice quiet new year this year and had friends round and a takeaway watching Alan Carr, as I didn't want to leave my little lady on her first new year! It was a different New Year to last as that was my due date and I was really uncomfortable and getting very impatient for my little lady to arrive! Just after New Year I had a little tea party for my baby as she will be one on thursday! She's growing up so fast.
Being a new year I have set a few resolutions, one of which is to be better at blogging! but I have been so busy recently I just haven't been able to, for which I do apologise, but I have been testing out lots of products which will be reviewed in due course, so please bare with and stay tuned!
Have you set any resolutions?

So here's to a great year ahead and many reviews to come.....
