Benefit Do The Hoola

I've been doing the Hoola pretty much since I started bronzing, which lets face it, was a long time ago. Of course, my style of bronzing has changed somewhat, and it's less "all over Tango applied in the school toilets" and more of a chisled contour now, but Hoola has seen me through my make up years and so it will forever have a fond place in my heart.

Last week, on QVC, Benefit launched the Do The Hoola kit which includes Benefits first ever liquid Hoola- Dew The Hoola, which is a lovely and sheer product and blends beautifully, but what I love most, is that it's still completely matte, which is what I love most about Hoola.

The kit includes an Ultra Plush gloss in the shade Hoola, a They're Real Mascara, a teeny tiny Hoola bronzer which I think is super adorable, Dew The Hoola and a Benebalm which are all very popular products, so if you haven't tried any of them or if you're quite simply a fan and want to get your hands on the cute miniatures, then this is well worth a buy.

Available exclusive to QVC, Do The Hoola costs £25.50.

Neom Real Luxury Bath Foam

Since becoming a mum, when I have the opportunity to experience any kind of down time, I'm all about relaxation.

When it comes to candles, bath foams and the like, I honestly can't get enough of luxurious scents and can now fully appreciate the goodness of essential oils.

Although I must admit, any bath is a good bath nowadays, with the addition of this Neom Organics Real Luxury Bath Foam, words can't quite describe how incredible a bath time I have.

"Scent to make you feel good" is the perfect description of this product and I find it's an essential product to create a moment of zen and leaves me feeling incredibly calm, relaxed and stress-free.

Lavender, Jasmine and Brazillian Rosewood are the fragrance notes carried through the product, which together create a spa like soothing blend of luxury and if you're like me and look forward to a single moment of relaxation or if you're into luxurious products as a day to day thing, then I honestly can't recommend this enough.

Costing £22.00 for 200ml of product, this definitely costs more than the standard bubbles, but for the way it makes you feel, it's more than worth it in my opinion.

I'm off for a long soak, but I'd love to know whether you've tried this and what relaxing products you love.

As a huge fan of Bobbi Brown, you'll only ever catch me praising their launches and needless to say, with new shades launched into their lipstick line, I'm a happy girl.

In response to requests from make up artists around the world, Bobbi Brown have introduced more shades into their Creamy Lip Colour, Creamy Matte Lip Colours and Sheer Lip Colour lines.

With 29 new shades over the three different formulas, there's for sure a shade to suit every skin tone, style and occasion and with the four that I have tried being absolutely dreamy, I have a very good feeling about the other 25 and can't wait to try a few next time I visit a counter.

Pale Beach 25 (Creamy Matte Lip Colour), Shell 26 (Sheer Lip Colour), Mandarin 28 3(Creamy Lip Colour) and Pink Flush 31 (Sheer Lip Colour) are equally beautiful but I am particularly blown away by Shell, which is a Peachy tone and already in the few weeks that I've owned it, it's become a make up bag essential. 

Available now, the new shades will cost the normal price of £19.50 each and can be purchased at Bobbi Brown stores and counters in the likes of Selfridges and John Lewis.

Selfridges Agender Beauty Box

When a store like Selfridges puts together a beauty box, you can be pretty damn sure that what's going to be inside that box will be special. 

Today, Selfridges launched a limited edition beauty box to fall alongside their current Agender campaign, which challenges boundaries and celebrates genderless fashion. Pieces such as trench coats and skate shoes- two things that I love, fall within their fashion campaign and inside the beauty box is as follows.

NARS Mini Eye Liner
Illamasqua Black Mascara
Verso Face Cream
Lancaster Tan Maximiser
Kiehl's Ultra-Facial Cleanser
Konjac Sponge
Demologica Conditioning Body Wash
OPI- Tickle My Francy
OCC Lip Tar- Hollywood

Before the price even comes into the equation, what we have here is nine of Selfridges favourite beauty products and personally, seven products that I am particularly so happy to have opened the box to.

With a combined value of £108, the Agender Beauty Box costs just £30 and if you're interested in getting one for yourself, you can sign up on the Selfridges website to be the first to know when it lands.
