I was lucky to pick up the cherry coco ‘Shea Butter & Coconut Whip’ during Make-Up Show Live and met the special talented cherry herself, I was so thrilled to be able to schmooze with her sister learning about the products and the brand itself and was given an added gift with my purchase which was the miniature spa bar. Cherry Coco creates luxurious handmade soaps and skincare using natural plant oils, butters and botanical ingredients.

Cherry Coco products:
o   Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
o   No preservative
o   Not tested on animals
o   No animal fats, petrochemicals, or sodium lauryl sulfates.

Shea Butter & Coconut Whip
The Shea butter and coconut whip is a un-refined Shea butter mixed with Coconut oil and natural body butter infused with May Chang and Lime oils and that’s it, a very natural product with no hidden ingredients.  All the products have positive benefits for keeping skin hydrated as well as giving it essential oils.
The Shea butter literally melts into your fingertips (without being greasy) when scooping out of the pot and dissolves effortlessly into the skin, leaving you with silky smooth baby soft skin.  I found that this magical pot is so kind to the skin and leaves my skin feeling so rich and nourished. I particularly love the fresh subtle zesty lime smell and haven’t come across anything like this before.
The Shea Butter and Coconut Whip can be found at for a minimal price of £6.99 (small) or £12.99 (large).

Miniature Spa Bar sample
I was so shocked to have received this miniature gift to sample and can gladly say i can’t get enough of it! The Spa Bar is handcrafted with red rose petals, sea salt and oatmeal.  Each ingredient has its own special benefits for your skin:
o   Rose petals- Rejuvenates, hydrates and soothes skin.
o   Sea salt- Detoxifies and exfoliates the skin.
o   Oatmeal- Rich ingredient for nourishing and moisturising the skin.
This works wonders during a bath especially for keeping feet soft as it gets rid of dead skin and leaves your feet supple and smooth.  The Spa Bar can also be found on the website but at an even sweeter price of £3.50!

With the cold harsh weather these products are just what you need to give your skin the tender love and care that it needs.  I’m looking forward to purchasing and delving into more of the range myself.
Cherry Coco products are perfect for pampering gifts so if you haven’t heard or need to have a look yourself head over to the website now!

Amie Skincare

Amie Skincare- Spring clean deep cleansing mask review

I was recently contacted by the lovely team at Amie Skincare. The brand creates skincare products for sensitive skin at affordable prices. Amie Skincare is a cruelty free brand that doesn’t test on animal’s and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Amie Skincare sent me the Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask to review (beautifully packaged may I add).

The Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask is meant to purify pores in order to leave you with clear flawless skin. By applying a small thin layer over the face and letting it set for 10minutes then washing off with warm water, I found the cleansing mask refreshing and light on my skin with the added bonus of not having any breakouts after use. It cleared my pores and impurities without completely stripping my face of its own natural oils which I loved as I hate my skin feeling dry after using a new product. The Amie Skincare cleansing mask enables me to use a small amount for my whole face and whilst on, during the drying process it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. I was particularly impressed with how nourishing it feels on the skin, how it clears congested areas and its minty fresh smell. I did find that it wasn’t the best on my dry patch. So this would be best for someone who doesn’t have dry skin.

The best thing about all of the Amie Products not just this one, is that it is free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils or animal extracts so you know there are no hidden nasties. The Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask is packed full of natural plant extracts so you know you are only getting the best ingredients.

Key Ingredients:
• Organic Peppermint
• White Clay
• Lime Butter 
The Amie Skincare Cleansing Mask can be found online at 100ml for £5.95 or on the high street in stores such as John Lewis and Waitrose.

Why not get your hands on some Amie Skincare products.

Christmas Wishlist

I honestly feel like I haven't written a post in the longest time, and I'm sorry if you have come back to this little wonderful space of mine hoping a new post would be on your screen. But my time was taken away with moving house, settling in and essay deadlines. So slowly but surely I'm back up and running again, and sharing with you my mini Christmas wishlist. Hopefully this year Santa will be able to surprise me with them all. 

Now we are in December I am trying to get into the Christmas spirit so thought I would put together a few things that have been catching my eye. Thanks Santa!

1. Babyliss Pro 3 in 1 Universal Diffuser & Babyliss Pro Straight 230 Straightener
I have been looking for a decent diffuser for ages and came across this one that has very good reviews and would be perfect to use in my hair, and the straightener is just a added bonus as I need a new one. The Babyliss diffuser can be found at for a sweet price of £7.99 whilst the straighteners can be bought at boots exclusively for £19.99.

2. Samsung Galaxy S4
I wouldn't usually want something gadgety at Christmas but after having my previous Samsung stolen I cant help but want the newest of the galaxy family instead of using a simple mobile where i cannot email or use social network on the go. I feel so out of the loop.

3. Topshop Croc Panel Bowling Bag
If you haven't noticed I love a simple black bag, especially when they are of a decent size. I noticed this beauty on the Topshop website for £40 and couldn't help but add it to my saved tabs. A black bag is so versatile and simple to use, and I love the added croc print down the middle!

4. Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation
I am a avid beauty blogger which kills me to say I have never tried the Illamasqua skin base foundation, but i desperately want to pick up one as i have heard such good reviews. My only problem is I have no clue what shade I would be at all, (I'm guessing shade 11 or 12) but really would like to add one to my make-up collection. If anyone has any idea of what shade would suit me please leave it in the comments below so Santa can pick one up for me. This can be bought on the official Illamasqua website for £27

5. Schuh Vans Sk8- Hi Trainers
I love Vans, I love Hi tops and I love suede so this is the perfect combination for me. I find Hi tops the most comfiest shoe to wear ever and i can practically style them with anything, hence why another has been added to my Christmas list. And for £60 you cant really complain because the majority of well made hi top trainers will be around that price!

6. Marc Jacobs Honey
I don't really need to say much about this apart from it has to be added to my perfume collection, not the 50ml but the 100ml! I cant be dealing with a small bottle that wont last me, it has to be the biggest bottle possible. I adore all Marc Jacob perfumes and cant wait to add this baby to the family. 100ml can be bought at the perfume shop for £67.50 whilst the 50ml is £40.00. I'm sure there are plenty of places you can buy it cheaper so if this doesn't end up under the Christmas tree this year I will either wait for the sales or hunt for a discounted online store.

So my list isn't long but it is pricey. Is there anything you have been lusting over this Christmas that you want Santa to bring you? You better have been good otherwise you will find a lump of coal!
