Lush Milky Bath Bubble Bar Review

Are you looking for much simpler things in life? then this bubble bar is the answer! This product may not have crazy colours or scents but this will definitely become your new favourite. 

Product description:
Don't cry over spilled milk - bathe in it! This comforting little milk bottle bubble bar is filled with uplifting orange oil and soya milk to treat your skin to a dose of happiness. A cocoa butter bottle top adds a little bit of extra softness. Simply crumble under running water, for a super bubbly treat of a bath.

First of all can we all just stop and admire the cute shape of this bubble bar? This truly reminds me of the milk bottle sweeties you would find at a pick n mix shop.
A very cleverly named and shaped product by Lush and I'm so glad to see a product that is far from all those crazy colours which can be quite overwhelming.The scent is so comforting! It smells just like the comfort pure laundry liquid you would use for babies, so fresh but pure.

I decided to break mine in half and use it for two baths. A half was definitely enough because I was able to get so many sweetly scented bubbles that felt oh-so soft to my skin. I actually felt as if this was product was giving me a hug if that makes sense?
This bubble bar contains soya milk, cocoa butter and orange oil so that itself means it's going to have a huge skin lovin' factor. Even though I felt so relaxed, I also felt uplifted and content thanks to the orange oil. My bath water turned cloudy with a little bit of sparkle, the glitter easily went down the drain whilst draining the tub so there was no clean up necessary, WIN!

This product equals a more relaxed and calmer you. My skin felt nourished and I totally had to skip using a moisturiser since I really didn't have to apply anything.
I usually go for the fun and colourful products in Lush but I'm so glad I picked this one up and it's not too hard on the wallet either!
Let's just hope this is never discontinued because I'l be stocking up on these!

Pretty make-up is my WEAKNESS

Think pretty rose gold packaging, pastel pinks and dainty bows, when make-up is pretty, you would want it all!

Being a huge make-up lover and addict, I take pride in collecting and displaying my favourite products and after having a clear out I was able to see which products were a necessity in my collection.

Some of the brands that I love and maybe buy because I cannot resist the packaging are: Clarins, Dior, Rosie by Autograph, Chanel and Maxfactor. I have however been eyeing up some products from Etude House, Lancome and Estee Lauder to add into my much loved display and collection.

When make-up looks great, it makes you feel great too and it makes applying feel much more luxurious and something to look forward to during the day.

There's nothing I like doing more than to browse endless beauty counters and have a play around with all of the beautiful shades of make-up. It's the little things... but mostly the PINK things.

My favourite make-up related quotes: 

What is the most prettiest make-up item that you own? I would LOVE to know!

A Beginner's Guide To Sheet Masks

Sheet masks are very popular these days but do you find yourself confused about the formulations or just the concept in general? then you've come to the right place because I will be sharing my beginner's guide to all things Korean style sheet masks, so sit back, grab a cuppa and let's talk about all things skincare!

The basics

What is a sheet mask?

Sheet masks are face-shaped sheets that are made out of fabric and are soaked in a serum. The serum contains all the good stuff and vitamins that your skin will soak up and benefit from. These sheet masks are different from facial masks because you do not need to apply it everywhere, you simply just remove the mask from the sachet, place it onto your face and pat in the extra serum after removing the mask. Sheet masks are generally one use and are individually packaged, making it fast,convenient and easy to use. 

How do you use a sheet mask?

It really is so simple. Apply it onto a clean face, leave on for 20-30 minutes, take it off and massage the leftover serum onto the face, no need to wash it off!

Where did the sheet mask originate from?

Sheet masks originates from South Korea. Today, sheet masks are widely popular and are used alot in Asia as a whole. Sheet masks are recently changing the beauty industry and are gaining popularity in the western world too.

Benefits of using a sheet mask

Sheet masks bring fast effects in regards to enhancing the skin. The serum contains various vitamins and minerals and would not dry out the skin compared to a usual clay face mask. They're an inexpensive way to brighten, tone, hydrate and soften the skin and the results are instant. With continuous usage, you will definitely see the difference.

My top tips when it comes to using a sheet mask

You do not need a specific time to use sheet masks, use it whenever you want to and the fact that they're disposable and that you do not need to wash your face after, definitely makes it my new go-to pamper essential.
Do not use any products prior to applying the mask, just normal,dry skin is the perfect base for the mask to go onto.
Time yourself, set yourself only 20 minutes for the mask to do it's thing. I never exceed the time because the mask could dry out so you would want to make sure you get all of the benefits from the mask.
Do apply the leftover serum. Either what is left on the skin or from the sachet. It all contains skin loving ingredients so make the most of it, your skin will thank you!

Do you have a favourite sheet mask? Also I hope this has helped so now you can become a pro at sheet masking and enjoy these masks as much as I do.

Cute Etude House Wishlist

Etude House has always been a cute brand that I have been loving, from the cute pastel pink packaging to the fabulous colour pay off and longevity, this is one brand that I need more of in my life!
I have put together my top nine items that I am going to purchase and after reading many reviews of each of the products, I definitely feel confident to try out this mega cute Korean brand!

1)0.2 Therapy Air Mask
Ok so I already own one but they all look and sound so great! I bought the 'Pearl' mask a few weeks ago and there are still 3 more scents that I would like to try, especially the Rose one since I am a huge fan of Rose scents. Sheet masks are definitely popular these days and I love how each one targets a particular skin issue. I always go for the hydrating and brightening ones.

2)Dear Girls Be Clear Pact Pressed Powder
How adorable is this? A pastel pink compact! I definitely need a new face powder to set my concealer so I think this would be perfect to use sparingly and to carry around on the go.

3)Oh M'Eye Line Liquid Liner
I have been using and loving another Korean liquid liner and I was amazed at the colour pay off and how long it lasted. I have read good things about this eyeliner so this is another product that I really want to try. It comes in many colours and the bottle is oh-so cute!

4)Silk Scarf Double Hair Mask
I couldn't resist reading about this, I mean look at the adorable packaging?! I have never used a hair mask before but I really want to try this one out! It is an essence coated cap which you wear then massage into the scalp which sounds so interesting. This should make my hair silkier and softer. 

5)Lovely Cookie Blusher
This was one of the products that lead me into loving Etude House, I saw these blushers everywhere! From Instagram to Google. It is a firm favourite among all! This screams cute! There are so many lovely shades to choose from too and it even contains a cute powder puff with a little bow. This is one product I am really excited to try out, the only thing is what shade of pink to go for! ^^

6)Big Cover Tip Concealer
I really need to try this concealer out, having an Asian skin tone with yellow undertones can be a bit of a challenge to find the right base products that actually match, I remember trying another concealer and it matched quite well even though the shades are limited. I am going to opt for the beige shade and hope for the best.

7)Tint My Brows Gel
Imagine not having to fill in your brows for a few days, I love products that save time. You basically apply this onto your brows, leave it on for a few hours and then peel it off! You are then left with tinted brows! I LOVE how innovative Korean products are and products like this definitely need to be talked about more!

8)Kissful Lip care Lip Scrub
I don't really know any one else who makes good lip scrubs other than Lush and their's can seem slightly over priced. So this sounds like the next best thing. I also love that it comes in a tube so in terms of hygiene, this is great! I'm glad Etude House have added this into their range.

9)Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Chiffon
The infamous lipstick that I saw everywhere and it comes in so many pretty shades and finishes too! I have still not chosen a shade yet but I can certainly imagine how pretty it will look on my dresser.

So there you have it! My top picks from Etude House, I would LOVE to know your favourites or which product you would like to try! I would also love to know any recommendations too!
