GOSH natural touch foundation – product review

Product Review – GOSH Natural Touch Foundation

Hey there my lovelies.  I have been hearing a lot about Gosh and their wonderful make up products so I decided to get in on some of the action and went to ebay and bagged myself some of their, natural touch foundation.
A bit about GOSH
GOSH is a company based in Denmark who specialize not only in make up but in bath and body care, fragrance and skin care as well as hair care.
About the Product, What it claims to do.
This product claims to be a lightweight formula which has mineral pigments which work together to unify your skin tone giving an even perfect looking complexion. It has added organic sweet almond oil to moisturize and nourish the skin.
The verdict, What it actually does.
This is a very lightweight formula indeed. It is almost invisible on the skin.  This in mind it still does all the things that you would expect from a foundation.  I found that it works very well.  It covered all of my imperfections.  I have some sun spots on my nose that are visible without make up.  Even though this is a lightweight foundation it still covered my sun spots and kept them covered all day long. The only criticism I can give this product is that as the day went on  I did have to use a little powder about half way through the day as my skin began to get a little oily and shiny.  Although this can be put down to my skin type which is as it happens oily combination skin.  It does not give a matte finish.  All that said I think that considering the price (£5.99 from ebay with free postage and packaging) and the quality I am overall happy with the product.  It would work well as a base under make up for that big night out look or if you are looking for a foundation which will keep your skin in a healthy condition, that you can wear every day and that gives a natural looking radiant glow then this is for you.  The fact that it has nourishing vitamins that keep your skin moisturized all day long is what makes this product a winner for me.  Not only does it keep your skin looking good but it actually keeps it healthy as well.
OUT OF 10??
I would give this little beauty a very respectable 7 out of 10.  It loses points for not having a matte finish and because it did not keep my skin from becoming oily throughout the day.  Granted that this could be my skin to blame as I do have oily combination skin.  At such a reasonable price I would definitely  give this a try to see what your personal experience is with this product and also this company as GOSH are a relatively new company in the United Kingdom, they are a Denmark based company who’s products have slowly made their way in to mainstream make up products and have caught the attention of like minded bloggers like myself who have boosted the company and its products in to the limelight.  So go on grab yourself either this or one of their other many products and share with me what your opinions are.

BeBella Cosmetics – Review

I thought I would do a review on BeBella Cosmetics. They are U.S based  company that I have recently come across thanks to their amazing eyeshadow palettes, although that’s not all they do, they have an extensive range of beauty products that are really good value for money.

They also have two different types of false lashes, one of which I have tried myself. The Human Lashes #47 are the ones that I purchased and I was very pleased with them, they lasted all night, were not irritating in the slightest and made my eyes look amazing.  They also have another range of mink lashes which I am yet to try. I really want to try the 3d silk mink lashes “sirena” priced at $13.00 which is £9.83, they come in some very pretty packaging and are lightweight and reusable.20-rubywoo_2048x2048kabuki_pink_a-800-800x800_large

Thier lip liners are very innovative as they are creamy in texture and are said to be used for not only lining the lip but also for filling it in. The liners come in 37 different shades and there is a MAC dupe in there which is actually named ruby woo.

They have a variety of brushes and I personally have my eye on the Kabuki 10 piece set priced at $24.99 which is £18.89 and come in pink and black, the pink is very pretty.

One other item I have my eye on from this company is their Contour and Bronzing palette priced at $12.99 which is £9.82.  The packaging that they use for all of thier products is very nice, I like it a lot, the lashes boxes are pretty and thier palettes are kind of modern, minimalistic but on trend.

They also have a great deal through spreezy for the 28 colour palette, for some reason it says sold out on the site but you can order it through spreezy and low and be hold 5 working days later mine arrived in the post, hit the link below to get yours

Product review – Garnier Ambre Solaire SPF 30 BB Cream

Product Description: This is what Garnier say this product does “Perfect the look of your skin immediately, even under the sun! Garnier Ambre Solaire new BB Cream Sun Protection has been created specifically to meet the need for high SPF protection for the face and neck with all the benefits of a beautifying BB Cream. In just one step, your skin looks perfected and is protected in the sun against UVB and UVA rays.”

WIN_20160719_21_10_31_Pro I received this BB cream in the post, I was asked to use and review it. Honest opinion only of course and these are my findings.

This product has a very light texture although I have come across BB Creams that have a much more light texture than this one. This one is more on the foundation end of the texture scale where most BB Creams are more on the tinted moisturiser end of the texture scale. It is not watery at all, and gives good coverage.

When I put the product on my skin as soon as I started rubbing it in you could see that it does definately give skin an instant glow, my skin looked healthy with a dewy look and a healthy glow and even though it is closer to foundation it did not make me look like I had lots of make up on. It looked very natural and light.

Round Up

So to pretty much round this product up, it is a BB Cream and does exactly what all other BB creams do, and that is to even out the complexion while brightening the skin but without the heavy look of a foundation, I really enjoyed that it gave me better coverage than some other BB Creams I have tried. I would definitely make this part of my every day routine. It is light enough to add concealer on top of but gives enough coverage on its own to wear everyday. On its own it looks very natural with no heaviness. All of that AND it protects from the UV rays of the sun which we all know is extremely harmful to skin and is the number one cause of the early signs of ageing such as fine lines, creases in the skin, clogged pores and just those big old dreaded wrinkles (that I do not have yet but I am beginning to see that they are in the post and on their way, fine lines around my eyes and on my fore head are getting much more noticeable)


I would give this ptoduct a 10 out of 10
I would also recommend this to a friend, well my friend I would recommend that you give this a try for yourself and see what you think, and if you have already used it, or are an every day user please leave in the comments below your personal experience and or opinion on this BB Cream.

Thank you for reading my beautiful people.

Top five best beauty procucts of 2016 so far!!!!

Good evening, and I hope that you are all well. I don’t know about you guys but sometimes when choosing something I really want can be made very difficult when faced with the huge variety of products that are available nowadays. for example the other day I want in to my local superdrug for a new foundation.  I had in mind which foundation I wanted, now I had enough money to treat myself so I decided that I was wanting to grab myself Maybeylline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation in Ivory.  I had seen this foundation on a video on youtube and it looked really really good.  It gave a light coverage which is what I was needing as I have a few heavy full coverage foundations but nothing for those more is less kind of days, and now the minimal, natural look is so trendy I thought it was time I gave my make-up bag an update.  But on entering the store I saw the huge amount of foundations that were available, I kind of got side tracked from what I actually needed and started thinking that maybe I should get some other kind of foundation, or maybe this one, or maybe this one is better, oh but this one is on offer (even though its not anything like the product I actually need).  So to help prevent this happening to any of you guys, or to at least give you a little guidance when it comes to selecting those must have beauty items I have created my top five beauty products of 2016 (so far).  I have some links to these items so to save you walking around the aisles in a neon daze looking for latest items, just hit a link and you will be taken directly to the offer, and may I add the best offer available at he moment.
