January Favourites

Hey guys, I have posted my new video a little earlier than usual as I am getting my guide dog on Friday. I have lots of things to learn and I still wanted to get a video up for you J This is my first favourites video and I was a little nervous so I’m improving my technique of describing things on camera! I will hopefully do a Vlog with Olga (my guide dog) soon so I will keep you posted!

In my January favourites I am wearing a floral shirt from New Look with multi coloured flowers that fill the whole shirt with a black undertone.

I thought I would describe the packaging for you guys as you might want to know that you are buying the right thing if you want to try it out:

– Clynol Illuminate Luminous Oil Treatment: This comes in a rounded off cylinder shaped pot that is mainly gold with a black lid. When looking at the pot front on, the word ‘Clynol’ is rotated backwards 90 degrees so the C is at the bottom of the pot and the L is at the top of the pot in a hard bronze font (You have to tilt your head or the pot to look at this). The words ‘luminous oil’ are written in a hard, light bronze font by the L of ‘Clynol’ but horizontally (so you would read it face on when you pick up the pot). In the same font below this in blue lettering is the word Illuminate. The lid is a solid black screw lid. This pot also has the ingredients listed on the back.

I love the fact that this product has Argan Oil in it as every treatment I have used so far for my hair, Argan Oil always comes out top! It smells so lovely and makes your hair feel so smooth. If you have dry and damaged hair I recommend using this once every week for a month then you should use it once every month after that. It really helps if you have split ends as it reduces them before you go for a cut! This product really does do what it says and really nourishes your hair. It’s pricey but you only have to use a blob on your hand every so often so the pot lasts for ages! See the rest of my review on my video.

– Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit oil-free moisturiser: This pink tube looks like a rounded, squashed toothpaste tube. This harsh oval shape continues with a translucent white screw on lid. In white lettering of a similar font to that of the Clynol, the words visibly clear are situated at the middle top (the opposite side to the cap) of the tube. In the middle it reads Pink Grapefruit oil free moisturiser in white. At the middle bottom of the tube is the Neutrogena logo written in white in a black box. ‘The light oil-free formula provides 24-hour hydration without clogging pores.’ I use this product every morning and it feels like you’re putting a light soap on your face at first as it’s harder to spread than most moisturisers, but it’s so worth it as it soaks into your skin so quickly. When you are getting ready in the morning in a hurry this is perfect to put under your makeup as the grapefruit gives your face a minty feeling which makes you more alive and ready to start the day!

– Illamasqua Powder Foundation in Pure White (100): It is in the style of a compact mirror as when you open it, there is a square mirror on the top of the box and the powder is on the bottom. The outside of the packaging is a glossy black with the logo imprinted in the very centre of the top of the box. The box shape is personally my favourite as it feels good! It’s in the shape of a widened hourglass, which is perfect to hold! (a wide timer shape) ‘Stunningly flawless base that begs to be touched.’ I love love love this powder foundation as I am a real Illamasqua girl. It has such a heavy coverage so I don’t have to worry about covering my spots when I have this in my make-up routine which is perfect for me as I am blind! I never feel self-conscious when wearing this powder as I know it evens out my skin tone. Again this is pricey but when you can’t see to look in a mirror and don’t want to ask anyone it is perfect! I really recommend this colour if you are as pale as me too, as I find it hard to search for foundations that match my white complexion!
