MUA undressed palette.

MUA 'Undressed' Eyeshadow Palette - £4 - Superdrug / MUA website

I bought this palette last week after my friend recommended it, I had been wanting to try the Urban decay naked palette for a while but I just couldn't bring myself to pay £30 something for eyeshadow! So this was a much cheaper and more realistic alternative. Ive been impressed with the MUA products i have previously tried and this has continued to live up to my expectations! I don't usually tend to experiment too  much with eyeshadow but i have been trying to since buying this.

For some reason on my photo most of the colours look darker than they actually are, and you can see by looking on the website the colours look lighter. Im not sure why this is! Most of the palette consists of nude, peachy shades.. I love shade 2 which is a pearly pink colour, it's perfect for everyday wear and some of the darker shades are amazing to blend in the outer corners of my eye. I'm really impressed with the quality of the product for £4 its definitely worth it! The packaging is nice too as it's sleek and not too bulky, I think it's just the right size. Definitely a thumbs up from me! I'm not sure if these are available in Superdrug yet but I got mine from the MUA website. I'll put the link below :)

Body Shop tea tree range.

Apologies for the rubbish quality photo but I couldnt wait to blog about these products I love them! I haven't been in the Body Shop in ages but went to Cheshire oaks with my flatmates today, so we had a look in. I have been wanting a face scrub particularly one that targets blackheads so I picked this up straight away. It was 30% off if you bought 2 items so I went with the foaming face wash as they're my favourite kind of face wash and I figured the 2 products would work well together:) I will put the links below to the products on the body shop website! With regards to the prices the scrub was £5.50 and the face wash was £4.50 but I ended up getting both for £7.00 which I was happy with! I doubt i would have paid full price as there are much cheaper alternative available!

I love the face wash as it removes makeup really easily without irritating my skin, including a lot of eye makeup which is a must have for me with a face wash and I can't stand it when they sting my eyes, so i am impressed with this one so far! I also love the tea tree scent, it is quite a strong scent but a nice one! I'm loving the exfoliating scrub so far too, it contains 'crushed apricot stones' and it just feels really nice when rubbing into the skin, as well as the lovely tea tree scent. After using both products together my face felt amazing and baby soft, I followed this with my clinique mositurising gel which is still my staple product!
