U.S Beauty & Lifestyle Shopping Haul With GoSend

U.S haul with Go Send voucher code

Next month I am off to New York, which I am super excited about and have a beauty wish list longer than my arm. There are just so many products that aren’t available here in the UK that I want to get my hands on. Shopping on US websites can sometimes be easy, Sephora being one and Shopbop one of my favourites too, but others can be a damn right pain. I had my eyes on these amazing home decor pieces from an American retailer and then when I got to the checkout the duty and shipping charges were so much more than the items themselves, it just wasn’t worth it.

So when GoSend got in touch with me, I was super intrigued. They offer a shopping service which enables you to buy from ANY U.S online retailer and they provide you with a U.S shipping address so you can order whatever you heart desires. The items then arrive to your U.S address which is a locker. Each item is stored in your locker until you are ready to ship out everything. When they arrive GoSend take pictures of the items so you can check what each is and that it is what you ordered. Then when everything you have ordered arrives you just need to pay the shipping and they will have it all shipped out as one parcel, pretty great right? Read More »

Trying Out Crownbrush Makeup Brushes

Crownbrush 516 syntho set review

Until last year I only ever had a few make-up brushes, I know right wtf!? I’ve stuck with my trusty brushes, a mixture of Real Techniques and the odd one from Boots. Then I discovered Zoeva brushes which were amazing quality for the price and come in gorgeous sets, which started my slight addiction to needing a brush for everything. Another brand I’ve always wanted to try was Crownbrush. I’d seen so many bloggers and vloggers, as well as top make-up artists using Crownbrush make-up brushes and when I had a look they were also offering affordable brushes and sets.

Luckily Crownbrush got in touch with me and I opted to try the 516 Syntho Set. Each brush is made of synthetic bristles and are said to not absorb oil or products so they are very hypoallergenic. The set has ten brushes and comes in a leather look case, which is great for travelling or if you are a make-up artist, taking on a shoot easily. Read More »

Kiehl's Energizing Radiance & Pollutant Defending Masques

If you use Kiehl’s products you won’t need an introduction here. Kiehl’s just seem to keep bringing out consistently good products, one of my current favourites being the Daily Reviving Concentrate. I’ve been testing out their latest mask products, one of which is pollutant defending and the other an energizing radiance mask. I’ve been testing these out for the last month and they have easily became my favourite masks to use. I normally like a simple hydrating mask and these couldn’t be more different from what I’ve used before in a mask product. Read More »

5 Ways For Men To Prevent Ingrown Hair

How To Prevent Ingrown Hairs

I have always suffered from ingrown hair as soon as I started shaving. If it has ever happened to you, you know how painful and frustrating it is.

So I set myself a mission to prevent ingrown hairs as much as possible and so here are 5 ways that have worked for me and can hopefully help you too.

1. Steam Your Face

Your face is always open to the elements, it is one of the only parts of your skin that is always exposed and rarely do we treat it well enough. Therefore it is difficult to protect it especially from the weather and pollution we encounter on a daily basis. Something I have learnt is by steaming my face it really helps to prepare my face for shaving.  I highly recommend using a good facial wash such as the Nip and Man Turbo Face Wash to start off, wash your face and pat dry. Steam your face with very hot water, you can use a flannel in hot water and carefully place it on your face and neck area and steam for up to a minute.  

Another way is to steam your face with a large bowl with boiling water and add a towel over your head and lower to steam your face, exactly like you might have done as a kid with a cold, by using the bowl technique you ensure to steam your whole face and neck regions. Sometimes I might even borrow Paula’s facial steamer machine when she has it out. Read More »
