Sweet Dreams With Johnson's Dreamy Skin Facial Night Moisturiser!

Hey lovelies,

Hope you're all having a terrific Thursday!

Today I wanted to share a quick post with you on Johnson's Dreamy Skin Night Moisturiser for the face!

Since I've been using this dreamy cream my skin has been radiant, soft and moisturised and the moonflower-enriched fragrance 'known for it's relaxing properties' is perfect to help you get a good night's sleep!

It's rich and creamy formula is light and easily absorbed into the skin and in the morning my skin feels a lot softer and smoother!

This has to be one of my favourite night creams I've used and definately has the best fragrance!

Has anyone tried anything from the Dreamy Skin range? Did it give you dreams or nightmares? Leave a comment and let me know!

Nighty night!

Love and Tickles

Here Are A Few Of My Favourite Things...!

Hey my lovelies,

Hope you're all having a wonderful Wednesday!

So I thought with it being a brand New Year I would do a quick post about some products I really enjoyed using in 2010! It will be interesting to see what items will catch my attention this year!

This is in no particular order but first:

1. Batiste Dry Shampoo - This has been my staple must-have and have used plenty of this over last year. It's perfect for those quick fixes, smells great, my favourite being a toss up between Boho and Tropical and getting them in travel size means I can always have it with me! I look forward to seeing what other scents will be brought out in the future!

2. Erase Paste - I think this has to be my favourite concealer and have used plenty over 2010. I only need to use a little bit and the creamy consistency covers blemishes and dark circles a treat!

3. Prestige Skin Loving Mineral Foundation - I really enjoyed using this product and am using it under my liquid foundation to keep it put for longer and as a result have also had clearer skin. Will be adding this to my list to buy again when it runs out!

4. Ecotools Brushes - I love using this product as the brushes are really super soft and natural. I have the powder, blush and eyeshadow brush and it's made applying my makeup a lot easier! I will definately be adding to my Ecotools collection!

5. Maybelline Eye Definer Liquid Eyeliner - Sometimes it's fun to create really dramatic eyes or adding feline flicks and I've found using this product really easy to do. With the pen style eyeliner it makes applying it neat and precise making bold, beautiful eyes!

What products were your favourites in 2010? Leave me a comment let me know!

Lasting Performance, Lasting Impression

Hey Lovelies,

Hope you're all having a marvellous Monday!

I had bought a new foundation a while ago and had been meaning to do a post about what I think is a super find! Max Factor's Lasting Performance Foundation!

Typical scenario, pale skinned girl looking for an equally pale foundation and after countless trials and testers, still no joy! Until that is I came across this beaut!
I am always on the look out for a new foundation that not only gives great coverage but that doesn't always make me look a much darker shade. I had for a while tried Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation in Shell and for a while I thought I had hit the jackpot, the coverage was ideal but after a while I soon realised that the shade was slightly darker than my skin tone and also rather masking!

Max Factor's Lasting Performance does exactly what it says on It lasts all day, without going patchy or dry my skin out as few others can do. The colour (100 Fair) is a pretty spot on match for my skin and covers blemishes and red areas a treat! I really liked this product as the coverage was high but without making my face, heavy, masking or dull.

It got even better when it cost £9.99 from Boots! I had also cut down on how much I spent compared to other premium brand foundations I had tried in the past!

I tried to do a swatch but my camera wasn't picking it up very well on my hand so I'm showing you a snippet of my face with the foundation on. I haven't put anything on my neck so you can see how well it matches my skin tone.

So overall impression! Definately a lasting one! My favourite so far, I think I may have found my match!

Anyone else tried this? What did we think? Leave a comment and let me know!

Out With The Old and In With The New!

Hey lovelies,

I would like to wish you all a fantastic New Year! And hope you make this year really special!

Definately got some New Year's Resolutions for this year including using up all my makeup until I run out and buy some more. I am a main culprit at getting sucked into those deals and end up bringing home extra mascaras, another set of foundation and eye shadow palettes to last a lifetime!

What are your Resolutions for 2011?

Love and Tickles
