Patisserie De Bain Cranberries and Cream Skincare Duo

I have no idea why I didn't try Patisserie de bain any sooner because this stuff is insanely good!
Patisserie de bain brings you quirky bath and body products, they capture cute scents and with retro packaging, it certainly grabs your attention too! I got this gift set free when I bought three products from the flutter range that was in Superdrug. It was finally time to report back why I really loved this brand.

Product description:
Discover your free spirit with the fresh, fruity delights of Patisserie de Bain Cranberries & Cream. Certainly not a crowd-follower, Cranberries & Cream is an eclectic blend of fruity cranberries whipped with sweet Chantilly cream with an eye-catching, unique style. From Hand Cream, Bath & Shower CrΓ¨me and Hand & Body Lotion to handmade sweet treats like Soaps, Bath Bombs and Bath Tartlettes – let your inner rebel shine bright.

So this giftset contained 1x Bath and Shower Creme 200ml worth £3.99 and 1x Hand and Body Lotion 200ml worth £4.99. Both products came in such a generous size and the adorable pink design on the packaging certainly brightened up my bathroom.
The scent was spot on. You could definitely detect the sharp fruity notes but the sweet chantilly cream brings the scent down to smell sweeter and more pleasant... ok and maybe yummy too!
The bath and shower creme foams up well with sweetly scented bubbles and it gently made my skin feel squeaky clean. The scent lingers on well and stays put on my skin for quite some time which is a major plus!
The hand and body lotion is my favourite out of the two simply because this lightly textured cream instantly hydrated and moistured my skin, every time I would move I could smell the scent and it's such a mood lifter too! The best thing was that it did not feel greasy in any way, the cream felt like whipped buttercream and I know I will be trying out more scents, I just cannot get enough of this gorgeously cute company.

If you are looking for bath/skin products that work, are budget friendly and have sweet scents then I definitely recommend Patisserie De Bain!

What's In My February Make-Up Bag?


Is it me or did January just fly by?! Like seriously where is the time going?! I have been wanting to feature my make-up bag contents for a while but most days I was make-up free or not really using anything new. I have a few new products and I am lovin' it all so far. I am definitely looking forward to Spring make-up and using all those cute pink and peach shades but for now here's what I'll be using:

Fair and Lovely BB Cream
I love light and flawless base make-up and I hardly wear foundation so a BB cream is perfect for me. I bought this when I was in Pakistan and the Fair and Lovely brand is pretty huge in India and Pakistan. This matches my asian skintone perfectly and it blurs out imperfections really well. I guess I should of bought a bigger tube.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard
I treated myself to this later last year and I really like this stuff. This concealer was on my wishlist for SO long and I'm glad I could finally tick it off of my ever long wishlist. This blends like a dream and really covers up my dark circles and imperfections. The texture is incredibly lightweight and you can totally build up the coverage without looking too 'over done'. A gem of a product.

L'Oreal Le Blush in 105 Rose Pastel 
I like collecting pink blushers and I have been loving this blush again. This gorgeous bubblegum pink gives my complexion that 'healthy' look and it also brightens up my face too. It's super pigmented and perfect for Spring!

L'Oreal Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in 213 Little Beige Dress 
I adore this shimmery shade but I don't use it as eyeshadow, I use it as a highlighter. I know I know but this looks insanely good paired up with the L'Oreal Le Blush and it gives my highlighter underneath that extra shimmer. This also has lil specks of green and pink glitter running through it which makes this the prettiest eyeshadow, ever!

Estee Lauder More Than Mascara in 01 Rich Black
I always go for volume when I pick mascaras but this one is perfect at defining and lengthening my lashes. I am starting to prefer the toned down look rather than having big fluttery lashes. This mascara also conditions and applies so well without any pulling or tugging. 

Kylie Lip Kit in Candy K
I finally own the most hyped up lip product ever! I was gifted this and I could not wait to rock the matte lip trend again. I have used many brands that have come out with different matte colours but I was so eager to see how this much loved product would perform. I was impressed. The pigmentation was fantastic and this warm nude shade is an everyday appropriate colour also the long lasting wear is something that we all appreciate, glad to have this in my collection.

What's in your make-up bag this February?

Get Date Ready Nails With Renunail - 28 Day Challenge


An exciting post to share with you today because I took part in a challenge last month with Renunail*, a challenge to get my nails date ready for Valentine's day!
I suffered with brittle and short nails for a very long time and it would just not seem to grow and having tried many cuticle oils and nail treatments, I was close to giving up. Until I started using Renunail, it changed everything!

Product description:
The Renunail range has been expertly created to banish brittle nails helping them to grow healthily and rapidly. The award­winning range has three hero products that work to strengthen weak nails that are prone to chipping, flaking, breaking and slow growing.

I was kindly sent the nail care duo, a bottle of Dr Lewinn's Renunail nail strengthener (which comes in a generous 30ml size) and a bottle of nourishing oil and used together they mean business! It claims to harden and protect nails, eliminate peeling, flaking and chipping while promoting longer and healthier looking nails. Now this was a huge claim and boy was I excited to try it out!

Renunail was certainly different compared to other nail treatments I have tested out, you simply apply a coat everyday for seven days, remove on day seven and then repeat the process until you have completed four weeks. You can also use the nourishing oil daily by massaging it on your cuticles. The oil contains sweet almond oil and jojoba seed oil and the actual strengthener contains calcium to strengthen damaged nails and camphor to sooth sensitivity as the nail grows.

I definitely noticed a difference to my nails and I was so happy to see how strong and long my nails have become. The breaking and splitting has completely stopped and now I cannot stop looking at my nails because I've never seen it so long and I definitely will continue to use this because I know this actually works.I can finally try out some nail art and treat myself to that Chanel nail polish I've been wanting to try for so long. So if you have short nails that are brittle/always breaking or if you are a nail biter then I definitely recommend you try this as soon as!

Renunail is available at all Tesco beautyworld stores.
