June favourites!

This month I have been finding myself reaching for:

Luca's Paw Paw Ointment - My friend brought some of this back for me from Australia. This product has definitely overtaken products such as vaseline in my life now. I LOVE THIS STUFF. It gives a really nice gloss on your lips. I have also been using this product for dry areas on my face and it has worked really well.

Hello Kitty Shimmering Body Lotion - I picked 3 of these up a couple of months ago at the pound shop. I love this lotion. It smells like sweets and has a slight shimmer. I would have preferred a body lotion without shimmer but this one isn't very noticable. It makes your skin feel aweeeesome. I've been using this everyday.

Benefit Boi-ing concealer in 'lite' - I've had this product for a while but I'm trying to use a lot of my older products up at the moment without actively taking part in 'Project 10 Pan' (penned my lollipop26 I forgot how great this concealer is. Very good coverage. I'm been using this lately with my bourjois 10 hour sleep effect (which I am also trying to use up - in my opinion it's not the greatest foundation).

MAC Blush in 'Blush of Youth' from the 'A Rose Romance' collection - I've been using this daily for the last couple of weeks. This is a beauty powder blush which comes across quite sheer. The website describes this as a 'clean pink with gold pearl'. I really cannot see any gold in this... Am I blind? Anyway I LOVE this colour!

Stila eyeshadow in 'Ecru' - I got this for a couple of pounds from TJ Hughes when they had their Stila make-up in on discount. 'Ecru' is a light beige eyeshadow which I have been using over the whole lid when I have been wearing winged eyeliner. The only downside to this eyeshadow is that is has cracked and shattered. I gather this happens a lot with Stila eyeshadows.

Paul Bryan Haircare - A review

Hey there! I wanted to bring to your attention the Paul Bryan haircare system. I have been using this for a while after buying this at my hair dressers. I cannot stress how much I am impressed with this range. The range includes - a shampoo, conditioner, 2 treatment sprays (protein and moisture) and a styler (the 'awesome styler' which can be used for anything). In the beginnning I used all of this products but after using the system for a while my hairdresser informed me I no longer needed the protein treatment spray. You can really see a difference in using these products and they are very affordable. I got the whole set for £30 in a promotion but it is now priced as £40 in their website. The Paul Bryan mantra is 'Keep it simple' and the products can be used on all hair types. The shampoo cleanses very well and has a lovely fresh scent with a menthol type feel. I find this really helpful on a morning when I'm half asleep! The treatment's are used after shampooing and can be used for 1 minute or longer for a more deep treatment.

If anyone is looking to change their haircare I cannot recommend this enough. It is affordable and not over priced. It really made a difference to my hair.


I also use CHI Silk Infusion after using these products but I'm sure you all know about how awesome that product is! I could not live without it!

Hey, I'm Bryden. This blog will be used to review cosmetic products, show hauls and make up tutorials. I got into make up about a year ago when I found Lolipop26's youtube channel on eyelash growth products. Since finding her channel I then found more channels which I was interested in. It wasn't until I found a friends make up channel that I decided to contribute to the make up community.
