Review - Pixi Vitamin Makeup Mist

Sunday, 25 June 2017

For seemingly ages, I have raved about how good the Pixi Glow Tonic is (it really is amazing though!), but until the other week I was yet to actually try another product from the Pixi skincare range...

A few weeks ago, my Mom kindly bought me a bottle of the Pixi Vitamin Makeup Mist to try, and as soon as I got my hands on said product, I felt really quite excited to have a try of it! Owing to my immense love of the Pixi Glow Tonic, I found myself putting a large amount of faith in this new item of mine before I had even sprayed the tiniest bit on my face...but was I right to be so excited by this Makeup Mist?



The answer is almost certainly yes! Just a few sprays of this lovely product does indeed leave my skin feeling refreshed and moist, and as the bottle explains, it is the perfect thing to rehydrate skin at any time of the day. As well as this, you can pop the product on before moisturising, as well as after applying your makeup - this immediately makes me think of the Urban Decay All-Nighter Spray (which is probably a more superior product to this Pixi version), as just a spritz of product will help in adding a protective layer to your makeup.


As most of the Pixi skincare products are, this Mist may seem a little pricey for some... for £16 though, you do get a fairly large bottle of product (product that does seem to go a long way considering that I have been applying a couple of sprays a day for a few weeks, and the bottle has only emptied a little bit)! In all the honesty, the only minor fault with this product is the fact that the spray normally tends to come out in clumps, and not as mist - I have actually heard other people mention this about Pixi products though, but to me this is literally only a small fault to an otherwise great product!



Overall though, I must say that so far this product has really lived up to my expectations! The Pixi Glow Tonic is a difficult one to live up to, and whilst the Vitamin Mist isn't exactly right up there alongside it, it still is a lovely product by a fantastic brand, and is great to have at hand during the warmer weather, to help refresh your skin when it begins to feel a little clammy!

REN Clean Skincare...

Sunday, 18 June 2017

The other week, I was lucky enough to be asked by REN Skincare whether I wanted to try one of the products from their new 'Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium' body range - of course, I jumped at the opportunity, as I particularly had my eye on their Exfoliating Body Scrub, due to the fact that I have been on the lookout for a good exfoliator for some time!


I had previously tried a couple of REN products as a part of beauty advent calendars from years gone by, and was therefore very excited to be trying out another item from their skincare range... This new range by REN looked pretty intriguing too due to the inclusion of kelp being used to fight stress and fatigue, whilst the magnesium and other anti-oxidants used can help to re-energise the skin.

So, when I saw that there was in fact an Exfoliating product being released within the range, I really felt compelled to try it out - a good exfoliator does seem hard to come by, especially one that both exfoliates and moisturises, so I was very much looking forward to give my new product a go once I received it!

Fashion (A Random Assortment of New Things)...

Sunday, 11 June 2017

I'm actually terrible at writing up blog posts to do with fashion, and normally tend to avoid the subject a bit in all honesty - however, to create a bit of a break from the usual makeup review or vinyl haul that you usually find on here, I thought that now was the right time to finally branch out and try and write up a little something about my most recently bought fashion items once again!

(Be warned, I'm actually quite awful at taking photos of pieces of clothing though!)



New Shoes

A few weeks back it occurred to me that I was really in need of getting myself some new, comfy shoes. At Christmas, I had a pair of Converse which are literally the comfiest, and have managed to rack up a lot of wear over the past few months., however, I did kind of need to purchase another pair of trainers so I could sort of mix and match between the two. Therefore, I decided to make the trip to Schuh to take a look at the collections of Vans that they stock...

Straight away, I set my sights on a pair of grey old school Vans, and after trying them on just knew I had to purchase them - and I was definitely right to do so, as the past few weeks have proved just how comfy these shoes are, let alone how nice they look!

May Favourites

Sunday, 4 June 2017

May has been a bit of a hectic month for me, and seems to have ultimately flown by considering that I have spend most of the month revising and doing exams! For that reason, I have been a bit stuck for blog post ideas lately... but, I just knew that I couldn't go wrong with a Monthly Favourites post, to help me wrap up all the things I have been loving over the past few weeks!


Vinyl...

May saw me add to my record collection once again, and this time with two amazing albums that I have seriously been wanting to get my hands on for a very long time! Firstly, a trip to Sainsbury's (of all places) saw me purchase 'Definitely Maybe' by Oasis - I do already have their album '(What's the Story) Morning Glory?', but also adore my latest Oasis purchase too, as with songs such as 'Rock 'n' Roll Star', 'Live Forever' and 'Supersonic' featured, this is literally an album that I will never tire of listening to. Another album that I will simply never get bored of though, is 'London Calling' by The Clash... and this was in fact, the other album that I picked up on vinyl in May. I have wanted this particular album for such a long time, considering how much I have previously listened to it on Spotify - I again love literally every song on this album, and in all honesty think that the title track alone cements it as one of the greatest!
