Nivea post shaving balm is commonly used by men after shaving to calm down the skin. Post shaving balm is now widely used by many make up lovers as a primer. Why do we use this as a primer ? Simply because it contains glycerin, glycerin is one of the main agents used in primers which provides us with a smooth and even base to apply our foundation.
Here's a list of benefits:
I myself decided to test it out and see what all the fuss was about I gently applied it to my face before I applied my foundation bare in mind I didn't apply any moisturiser before hand.The one thing that I find annoying is when you go to dispense the product is that it comes out really fast so it's hard to control the amount that comes out. The product itself is quite light and runny.
I let the product soak into my skin for about 5 minutes until it was dry,I could immediately feel it cooling my skin I did notice any redness on my skin that I may of had died down. I took my beauty blender and applied my foundation in dotting motions and blended it all out. I couldn't believe how my foundation looked seamless and flawless. It didn't stick to any dry areas on my skin normally I have difficulty with my foundation staying on place on my nose but it stayed in place. I did notice through out the day that my foundation came off around my chin in particular I'm not too sure as why. The scent of the product is quite masculine but it didn't turn me off from using it.
I would have to give it an 9/10 it didn't stick to any dry areas on my skin and I have quite dry skin so this was a big plus for me and the foundation looked flawless and seamless.
I picked the post shaving balm up in Cara pharmacy it was reduced from €6.18 to €4.30. I hope you enjoyed this little review make sure to follow me on Twitter for any updates https://twitter.com/_l_a_u_r_a____ .
Until Next Time Bee's,
Finding the right dental care products can be a challenge but recently I was kindly sent a few products by Beverly Hills Formula. Beverly Hills are the only Irish brand to provide high quality dental care products. They have a vast range of products from mouthwashes, toothpaste and oral care products available. I have never tried out any of there range of products before so I was quite eager to try them out,Let's have a peek and see what they kindly sent.
Perfect White Black Toothpaste
Okay I have to admit I have never seen or heard that there is such a thing as black toothpaste before, when I seen this I got a little bit excited I showed it to a few people " black toothpaste, what " was their Initial reaction everyone was really intrigued by it just like I was. The Toothpaste contains activated charcoal which is one of the safest ingredients for whitening your teeth it also kills bacteria that causes bad breath and neutralises any remaining odours leaving your breath minty and refreshed. If you are a tea lover, coffee lover or like having the odd glass of wine now and again the activated charcoal removes any staining caused by these drinks by doing so it removes the tannins of the surface of your teeth with out damaging the enamel of your teeth. After use you will noticed an incredible difference in your teeth over time they will appear so much brighter.
Perfect White Black Sensitive
If you have sensitive teeth don't fret as they also have a sensitive option available which I also had the opportunity to try. Over time it restores and strengths the tooth's enamel which ables you to eat rich and acidic foods. It also kills bacteria and neutralises ordours leaving your breath fresher.
Prefect white Black Mouthwash
When I seen this I was also eager to try it out.I showed this product to a few people and actually my friend's mum my went out the other day and bought it. The mouthwash also contains activated charcoal,the charcoal removes any staining on your teeth it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals that damage the enamel of your teeth. One of the main purposes or reasons why we use mouthwash is because it contains sodium fluoride, sodium fluoride prevents tooth decay and cavities it helps strengthen our teeth. Just like the perfect white blank toothpaste the mouthwash kills and neutralises any bacteria that causes bad breath leaving you with fresh minty breath. €5.99 http://beverlyhillsformula.com/product-category/mouthwash/
Perfect White Gold
Yes the toothpaste is actually gold in colour no matter what Beverly Hills formula always out do themselves.Their products truly are unique. The formula actually contains gold partials I know what is going on but gold is actually known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which actually increases blood flow and prevents gum disease pretty amazing right ? I've been using this for a few days now and I'm in love with it my teeth looked instantly brighter and whiter after use.
I literally can not fault their products I personally have been receiving comments on how white my teeth are and it's thanks to their products.They also kindly added in a few tooth brushes and a couple of tongue cleaners which was really kind of them. Like I said above I can't fault their products what so ever they simply are unique. You can by their products on their online website http://beverlyhillsformula.com/buy-now/ or in various pharmacies throughout Ireland. They also have social media accounts I've added the links down below so you can check them out.

I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. W7 cosmetics kindly sent me out a few products from their makeup range to try out. For those of you who aren't aware or familiar of W7 cosmetics,W7 cosmetics are a cosmetics brand based in the Uk every year they grow from strength to strength,they manufacture and sell high quality beauty products for an affordable price all of their products are cruelty free as they do not test on animals. Let's have a peek to see what they sent....
W7 Argan Eyes Mascara
I was quite excited to try this mascara out I'm a huge fan of their mascara's especially the absolute lashes which is a dupe for benefits they're real mascara.Their Argan eyes mascara is quite unique due to the fact that it contains Argan oil,the argan oil encourages our lashes to grow. Due to the wands barrel shape and spiked bristles it thickens our lashes given them a more fuller look. I can't fault this well maybe I can if it was waterproof then I would 100% wear it all the time I'm not sure if they have a waterproof version available on not but if not it's something they should maybe consider. Rate 9/10
W7 Tinted Kiss lip oil
I've never tried out any of w7's lip products before but I was quite excited to try this out due to the formula this lip oil nourishes and moistures your lips leaving them instantly soft and replenished.The product it's self doesn't look like an oil it's quite gloopy, thick and sticky but this didn't turn me off the pigmentation of the product is great I've been trying out the shade in the pink which to me seems to have more of a purple tone to it than a pink tone it's prefect for every day wear to add a bit of colour to your lips or shine. Trust me you will notice a difference in your lips after you apply this plus it also smells amazing.Rate 8/10
W7 Candy Blush
I've never tried out any of w7's blushes before so I was eager to try this out I have been trying out the shade scandal which is a coral peachy pink shade. The pigmentation isn't the best but maybe I need to build it up a bit more, it's perfect for that every day natural makeup look. The packaging I love,the round packaging reminds me of the bourjois blushes. It contains a mirror which is super handy as you can pop this in your handbag and take it with you if you need to reapply your makeup. Rate 7/10
W7 King Kohl
okay I'm going to admit I've never tried out any of their eyeliners before just simply because I didn't think they would be gentle to apply but I was wrong I couldn't believe it when I swatched this on the back of my hand to warm it up a bit it was so soft and it glided gently against my skin. I have been trying out the shade blackest black you can't fault a black eyeliner everyone needs a black eyeliner in their makeup kit and I would recommend this. The pigmentation is excellent, it glides on smoothly it's no way rough. It's really easy to blend so you could create a gorgeous smokey eye using this liner. Rate 10/10

As we all know applying lipstick can be a bit of challenge lipstick runs, it gets on your teeth, it sumdges, you try to wipe it using your finger then you accidentally rub it on your face so when applying our Lipstick we have to do a bit of preparation I thought it would be a great idea to share with you guys a little step by step guide on how to achieve that prefect pout.
If you have dry or damaged lips applying lipstick can highlight the problem it doesn't look so great, the best thing to do is to exfoliate your lips by using a lip scrub I use lush's my boy lollipop bubblegum flavour simply apply it to your lips and let it work its magic. Your lips will be left feeling soft creating the prefect base for applying lipstick.
What you will need ..
(1) pick up your liner , start by drawing a v shape in the center of your upper
(2) create a m shape by curving the v shape back around
(3) Draw a flat line in the middle of your lower lip
(4) - Draw out each line and you will end up creating a u shape
(5) - start at the outside of your mouth and draw a line back towards the center of your lip do this on each side
(6) - fill in your lips using your favorite shade of lipstick.
We all want our lipstick to last longer throughout the day by filling in all of your lip with liner this increase the intensity of colour the lipstick and makes it last much longer.
there you have it my little guide on how to shape your lips and to achieve the prefect pout!
