I think I'm a bit late with this product as I've already seen so many reviews on it but I'm still going to do one anyway, first of all why haven't I found this sooner Im in love!
The reason I bought this was because it was on on offer most places I saw it, I saw it in Boots and thought about it but decided to leave it later that day I went to Asda's as I always find so many bargains it was only £3.33 so I decided to go for it. I didn't have high hopes as it looked like water even my boyfriend piped up and said you've paid £3.33 for a bottle of water. It claims to remove make up and cleanse your skin and it so did! I didn't have to scrub my make-up off with those dreaded wipes it took it off so nicely and did leave my skin so smooth to the point I kept asking my boyfriend to touch my face. I wanted to have a look at the ingredients for this as it claimed to be no fragrance I still opened the lid and tried to smell it but it hardly has anything in it i think around 6 things, I'm not a scientist so I have no idea what they are but it looks good hey.
They have different types of these for different skin types I went for the sensitive skin as I could only see combination which I didn't want as I have really dry skin but usually I'd wake up in the morning and notice these patches but my face looked so much clearer.
This is defiantly going to be part of my nighttime routine and I will never buy make-up wipes again as long last but not least this says you should get 200 uses of it which I think might be a exaggerated because I seen people buy another so quickly I think it would last about 2 months using a lot of it a time but while it's on offer for £3.33 that's basically a pack of make-up wipes.
I have been waiting for this moment since I saw the film all I've wanted to do is be Elsa she is my favourite disney princess. My boyfriend and I got invited to our friends 30th birthday and it was fancy dress so without a doubt I knew what I was going as. Im not going into much about the details about the night as this is to show off how I became Elsa.
I didn't take as many photo's of my make up step by step as I'd have liked too.
Excuse my dressing gown I didn't put my dress on until the last minute, this was after I finished my make-up.

I'm pretty sure that's everything, I bought the little snowflake hair clips on ebay for about £3 and they have spiral backs on them, I bought two cans of white uv hair spray which you can get most places I got mine from Superdrug and I thin it was £4.99. My Eyelashes I bought off a Lady on facebook/depop on facebook her name is Livvie Raven and they are actually inspired by 'Frozen' they were not heavy at all which I thought they would be.
Here are some more pictures, I bought a blue sheer cape off of eBay and my boyfriend's mum attached the white fur onto it, the dress is just from missguided but was from last summer so I don't think it will be on there anymore. My shoes I haven't shown as I did a post of them a while back.
Please leave any questions below and I will answer them

I really shouldn't get to work so early as I always end up spending money looking around the shops before I start work. So before I started my shift I had a little nosey around my local Superdrug and took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer yet again and I got another make up bag which I gave to my boyfriends mum.
So first thing I needed was a pink blush as I don't wear blusher I'm more of a bronzer type of gal, I need a pink blush because I'm dressing as Elsa and she has nice rosey cheeks. I've said over and over that I'm a massive MUA fan and most products are only £1 so I picked up the blusher as it didn't have to be great as it was for one night.
Then I stumbled across a brand which I never really heard of but the prices were brilliant was right next to the MUA stall so I'm shocked I hadn't seen it earlier I must admit the quality looked better. I own nothing by this brand 'Revolution' until today I picked up a lovely eye shadow called 'Purple Haven' it has a tiny amount of blue in which I like and this was only £1 the pigment isn't amazing but its buildable.
The next thing I picked up was the 'Awesome Dual Eyeliner' as I needed a new one and this was only £2.50 for technically two eyeliners. Its a double end so it saves taking out two at a time.
These are both ends, excuse the terrible photos I have the worst camera and it takes ages to focus. It feels good quality and I've tested it on my hand and it is very dark and I think it'll work perfectly although I'm not a major eyeliner fan anyway but who knows this could change me.
Have you got any Revolution products that I should try?

Jack Wills and Olly Murs are probably my favourite things in life. If you're like me then for christmas and birthday's I receive loads of bath sets and gift sets and it takes me months to get through them all. Today I came across my Jack Wills English Velvet Body Wash and Body Butter.
Now I don't really rate the Jack Wills English Velvet body wash very high mainly because I didn't want to buy it again and if I don't instantly want to buy more then this product isn't something I want in my life. They claim that the scent is 'English Velvet' does anybody know what this is supposed to smell like, I think the last time I smelt velvet it didn't have a scent the only thing I can smell is soap. I like the packaging and I love Jack Wills clothing but I think maybe they should just stick to that, this feels like a product I'd pay around £2 for its only the fancy name 'Jack Wills' is the reason we pay more. I'm not sure how much this did cost but roughly I'd say around £15 because Jack Wills don't do cheap.
Now leaving all the negative stuff behind I had hopes for this body butter the scent was the same as the body wash so I didn't smell fabulous but it did leave my skin so smooth and I'd even shaved my legs and they were lovely but it was probably the same standard as The Body Shop which smells amazing and is a lot cheaper.
whoops I said we'd leave the negative behind oh well..
I just feel really let down by these products as I have so much clothing by them. If you don't know me then the Olly Murs book was placed just to show my two true loves, I can do a review on the book if you insist but I'm probably just going to write that everything was fab because I won't write a bad word about Olls

So you all know I'm a huge fan of MUA brand as its so cheap and actually quite good, I've been on the hunt for a primer for quite a while and struggled to find one I like the sound of. I headed to superdrug and checked out the MUA counter and they actually have quite a few but I picked up Pro-Base primer it claims to 'flawlessly evens out complexion' I personally don't think it does but I did notice a different when I applied my make up I didn't see any dry skin patches and my make up went on nicer than it usually does.
I took a picture of this product next to the make up bag I got for free in Superdrug I think it's because I used the 3 for 2 offer I was just happy to get a freebie and a £1 off the total because I had enough points.
Anyway back to the product itself...
it comes out almost like a gel form and had a white look to it which I thought was unusual since I pictured it to be clear. For £4 I don't think it's a bad product if you don't really wear primers like me it makes it hard to compare to any others but it definitely holds my make up on for longer and also I don't have to use as much foundation as the primer makes it go further.
What are some good primers for dry skin girls?
Not literally but they did get 'Frozen' so I have a fancy dress party next weekend and I've decided to go as Elsa as she's my favourite and I have blonde hair. After spending hours on eBay and Amazon I could find any shoes that I liked plus I didn't really want heels as I broke my foot a few years back and it never fully recovered.
I decided to invest in some plain white converse on eBay for £13.99
They did come with laces but I pulled them out before I took the photo. I decided to decorate these.
I started with adding some blue ribbon which I bought on Amazon for around £2 and I had plenty of it, they already looked completely different. I then started to add the rhinestones on the toe part intending to do the whole section but it took so much time glueing them on so I put a sticker on and rhinestoned around it...
This was finished result and I'm pretty happy with it tbh, I got the iron on transfers off of eBay which was the most expensive craft bit and they were £8 for both which isn't too bad anyway. I'm even thinking of starting a business doing these because I'm so proud of them. I'll show you the back but I need to change the back of one of the bows as it doesn't match and I'm super fussy about that.

This isn't my normal beauty blog post, as I like doing random little chats. If you live in the UK like me you'll know that yesterday(15.04.15) was one of the hottest and most beautiful days we've had so far, so I went to Southend Beach with my boyfriend and his friend for the day.
We sat here eating mcdonalds and hot donuts, god knows why my boyfriend insisted on buying hot donuts I don't know but they were pretty tasty. Overall it was a perfect day and the time just flew by and we wasn't even doing much we were just people watching and sunbathing, I personally would love to live in Southend I think all the people are lovely and I love the beach.
My boyfriend is the one in the middle and he looks like he's posing but we couldn't even see my camera as it was so bright and on the left of him is his mate Tom he just come along for the ride and to get out the house. If you live in the UK and have never been to Southend I highly recommend it they have a theme park on the seafront which you can wonder around for free but obviously pay for the rides, they have arcades everywhere a sealife centre and adventure golf.
