Triple performing facial emulsion with Spf 15- review

As you saw from my last post I went to the Benefit counter to have one of their make overs....

Now, I would only recommend going, if like me you were after a couple of bits or you had purchased bits and you wanted to know how they worked...DO NOT GO if you don't need anything... not only will you feel pressured to buy (my Benefits lady was lovely and did not oversell but still..)  and secondly even if your not sold to, you're going to want to buy it anyway!!!!!

I was after a new moisturiser and after researching a few, I felt this one sounded like a good option....

It is described as an emulsion as it is non oily, however it is meant to be hydrating. I suffer with sensitive, combination skin and I struggle to find a moisturiser that makes my skin moisturised yet not over greasy  As you can see it comes in a pretty bottle, which looks cute (I know that's not a big thing...but it kinda helps!)

 I like the fact it comes with a pump top so it doesn't all squeeze out, the benefit lady reckoned 3 pumps a go!

Overall I think the moisturiser is really good on my skin and a great base for make up, however at £19.50 it is pretty pricey, lets see how well it lasts!

A makeover Saturday

Last Saturday I had a rather nice day of having my hair, makeup and legs waxed?!

I went to my favourite hairdressers, Buzby and Blue and went to the Benefit lady for a was beautiful and very relaxing.

looking pretty rough..


The dress is from Topshop tall last year and the Bob makes me happy. Saturday we went out for dinner and drinks in Chichester was lush.

I hope it will be an Indian summer but.....

I can feel it getting a bit chillier. The nights are getting dark before 9pm and we have had to put the duvet back on our back to stop it being fereezing in the morning. Although I adore the sunshine, I always get the "back to school" feeling come the first of September.....It's always disappointing to not go and get a new pencil case....:'-(

However I can start thinking about my Autumn wardrobe and buying a snuggly coat and boots......

As I've said in previous posts I'm nearly 5"10 so when it comes to clothes , the tall range is my best friend. I've been really disappointed that Newlook have really cut back on their tall range so now I'm even more limited, however it makes it all the more rewarding when I do find something that fits well!

I am seriously loving Topshop at the moment....
£30 Topshop Tall
 I love the bottle green of this cardi and there's nothing better than curling up with a boyfriend cardi sand a cuppa tea...
£70 Topshop
 When I first looked at these boots I was horrified...but after going past them on a regular basis I kept loving them a little bit more each time, I think they'd look fab with leggings/tights/trousers
We shall see if I'm brave enough......
£89 Topshop
 When I saw that Topshop had FINALLY made this duffel coat in the tall range I nearly cried.....I have wanted one of these for absolutely ages, this is what September wages are going on!!!
£36 Topshop tall
 This will be lovely for work with a pencil skirt and heels or with a pair of peg leg trousers and a blazer
£18 Topshop tall
 I have these already and they are really thick and comfy, however I managed to get a big hole in them via my washing machine so I am deffo going to invest in another pair this year

This is just simply lush...............................

Have you been looking at autumnal pieces or are  you holding onto the summer?????
