Favourites from the High Street

Hello!

I love treating myself to high end products. There's nothing quite like the enjoyment of opening fresh Nars lippy or applying a blush brush to that pretty pattern for the first time. But, buying high end isn't always that great for my bank balance, so it's to the high street brands I go! I think high street brands sometimes get a little over looked in the blogging world, but there's tonnes of hidden gems out there and you don't always have to spend a lot to find a wonderful product!

Colab Aussie Soap and Glory Maxfactor The Body Shop Favourites from the High Street

Colab Aussie Soap and Glory Maxfactor The Body Shop Favourites from the High Street

When Ruth Crilly first announced to launch of Colab dry shampoo I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, being the first blogger release that's actually got me excited and wanting to buy it. Quickly after first giving it a go Colab dry shampoo became a staple in my beauty regime and I haven't used a different dry shampoo since. It's perfect for refreshing hair between washes or just giving it that extra bit of volume. It's light weight, smells amazing and doesn't leave that grey, matte finish!

Another hair product that I absolutely adore is Aussie's Miracle Hair Insurance. I've been using it for years, it was actually one of the first products I reviewed on my blog nearly 3 years ago! I use it along side my trusty Tangle Teezer after towel drying my hair, to help de-tangle and prevent it breaking. It's not a wonder product but it does exactly what it says on the tin. Oh, and it smells amazing too!

Skincare wise I'm pretty obsessed with The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Cream. When it comes to face creams I like something pretty simple and this one from TBS is just that. It's lightweight and adds the perfect amount of moisture, plus it doesn't take too long to soak in. Oh, and it makes a great makeup base too.

Soap and Glory's Thick & Fast mascara has been my one and only for a good couple of years. I probably can't even count on one hand that amount of times I've used it! It ticks all the boxes; good pigmentation, lengthens, creates volume and doesn't clump. It's just an all round good mascara and I really recommend it. I did a review on it last year, here, with before and after pictures, so you can see how amazing it is yourself!

Lastly is a foundation that I can't recommend enough. On the whole, me and drugstore foundations don't really get along. It seems hard to find a good coverage foundation, in the drugstore, that isn't heavy and doesn't leave you feeling like your wearing a mask. However, Maxfactor's Whipped Creme foundation has this covered. It's got an amazing silky feel to it and glides on to the skin effortlessly. The satin finish means it suits my skin all year round and it covers my redness without me even knowing it's there, it's one of my favourite foundations!

What's your favourite from the high street?

Father's Day Gifts from IWOOT

Hello!

With Father's day almost here it's time to start thinking about that perfect gift for your Dad, Granddad or any other deserving male! I always find picking gifts for my Dad pretty tricky. Although he always appreciates the generic chocolates, toiletry sets and alcoholic gifts I feel like they kind of lack imagination and are just a sort of 'easy' gift that doesn't take much thought. Plus, I never like to keep getting him the same gift!

IWOOT (I Want One of Those) recently contacted me asking if I'd like to review some of their Father's day gifts. Obviously, with it being one of my favourite sites to browse for quirky gifts, and being in desperate need of some gift inspiration myself, I couldn't wait for my mystery gifts to arrive! They have a huge selection of gifts for Father's day from gadgets to quirky chocolates and tonnes of novelty gifts. If you're stuck for gift ideas for this years Father's day then peek at their website because they have all sorts to match everyone's budget! It's a great place for gift hunting if you're wanting something a little unusual any time of the year.

First thing I found when I opened my mystery packing is a perfect gift for the man who enjoys a tipple or two, Whisky Rockers* glasses. The set of quirky whiskey glasses have a completely rounded bottom and gentle rock on the table and, although originally meant for whiskey, they're generously sized so great for wine or whatever drink they desire (although I'd probably stay clear of anything too fizzy!). They're a great novelty gift that's also really practical, they were originally designed to be used on ships as the rounded bottom allowed them to gently sway with the waves. And, if you're on a bit of a budget this year, they're only £9.99 and can be found here.

The second item in my mystery package was the Immerse Virtual Reality Headset*, a gift for any man that's a bit gadget mad. It's really fun gift that you simply slip your phone into and then watch away! There's tonnes of free apps that work along side the headset, such a VR Roller Coasters, and also small clips and movies to watch through it too! The straps and lens positions are completely adjustable so it's a gift that's perfect for those of all sizes! It's a really fun to use product and, although you may feel a little silly at first, once you get in to it you completely forget. Oh, and you can use earphones with it so don't worry about it being noisy! This VR Headset is on IWOOT here and at £22.99 it's a pretty budget friendly buy!

IWOOT currently have a free next day delivery offer on for all spends over £35 so, if you leave all your gift buying to the last minute, there's still time to get that fun, quirky gift!
