Homedics Tanda Zap! a handbag essential!

Hi ladies well i have a special blog post today, which i think your all going to love! now let me start by asking you a question. How many of you suffer with sudden breakouts of problem spots/blemishes? If your like me then i do from time to time and it always seems to be just when you least expect it or DONT want it to happen! that problem spot! now im quite lucky as i dont get them all the time but when i get them they seem to linger for days sometimes weeks! now i was contacted by the lovely Katie at Pegasus to see if i would like to test and trial the Homedics Tanda Zap. a clinically proven gadget to fade ache an blemishes within 24hours Now i can hear you all saying "yeah i wonder if something like this actually works" but ladies i am very pleased to announce this little compact device really DOES help fade and clear up blemishes.

when i opened my little Tanda Zap  i was really surprised by how compact and neat it was, it also came with batteries nd lets face it most gadgets now a days you have to  buy your own, so this was a really pleasant  surprise meaning i could get right down to using it once opened and read up about.

as you can see it compact and perfect to pop in your handbag if your out and about and on the go. the device combines powerful blue light technology used by dermatologists with sonic vibrations and gentle warming to give proven clearing results. once the batteries have been inserted you press the orange button show above once held up to the problem area. the device will the vibrate and start killing bacteria with the blue light technology. this clear little device also has a timer so you hold the tanda zap on the problem area and it will automatically shut down after its elected 2 minute recommended time. the recommended usage is 2-3 times daily. its comfortable to use, it light weight and easy to carry out the process. 

i was very surprised to find that after 3 uses over a day period the blemish that had been bothering me had lost that red pressure feeling an looked visibly smaller. now i was that surprised that i had to try it again on another blemish i had the day after as i wasnt sure if maybe it had just cleared up on it own????
i used again the same way the day after and had exactly the same effects. so while this doesnt make your problem blemishes dissapear and might i add it doesnt claim too, it certainly makes them  visibly better and also feeling better. the only way i can describe it is that it drys them up at turbo speed.

im so happy that i got the opportunity to try the Tanda Zap, and  hope in the future i get the opportunity to test another product they have on the market. the Tanda clear.

the tanda zap is available in selected larger boots stores for £59.99 it has 1000 treatments and the recommended battery life is 40-50 treatments to gain best results.

so to clarify, this little handbag gadget is amazing, i am very pleased with the results and how it mad me feel after i saw the results. i know that problem spot or blemish can ruin your day, believe me it has mine plenty of time but now i have the Tanda zap my blemishes will be zapped away. i love its size and style, i love the ease of use and i love the results it achieves. this will for sure be a repurchase for me in the future as i believe it is worth every penny. and at such a reasonable price for the use it has in it i think this is going to be a popular little product. well done Homedics finally a product to help every person with those irritating little problem areas of skin. 

see you soon ladies any questions leave a commment below and ill answer them as soon as i can. 
take care xxx

technic ELECTRIC palette

Hey ladies, well i received this AMAZING little palette in the post this morning, now im all about the neutral but occasionally i like that pop of colour on the eyes, especially if you can colour co-ordinate with your OOTD. so i was very pleased to receive this item.

this is the technic electric beauty palette. now these eye shadows are pretty spectacular i have to admit. i have always been really nervous about colours like this not because i dont like wearing them but they look amazing in the box! when you apply usually its a whole different matter. the pigment usually is alot less once applied, and they just dont have the same effect as when you look at them in the pan.

well im glad to say these are different, there was one colour that i wasnt over the moon with in pigment. and that was the really bright pink. its ok but just not as good as the others. so below im going to show you the swatches of how these appear on the skin.

as you can see these colours are so pretty and im so pleased to have these in my collection. they seems to go on well and feel very comfortable to wear not heavy at all and also they are very blend-able.

the come in a very similar casing as the sleek palettes they are sturdy and strong and come with a full size lid mirror and doubled ended foam application brush.

i was very shocked to learn the price of this palette and at £2.99 YOU CANNOT GO WRONG.
these are sold on ebay and amazon so if you fancy one grab a bargain.

im really going to enjoy using this palette.
see you soon ladies x

Blue & Pink Nails

hey ladies well i wanted to show you these really pretty nails, modeled by my beautiful 8 year old daughter emma. she has lovely little nails and is now at the ago where she has really started taking interest in all girlie things nails being a main contender.
so this week she wanted blue with little acrylic flowers. then i suggested we added some little pink dots to her index finger as the flowers had pink middles. that little extra special touch.

so to create this look i used, 2 true shade blue sky nail polish as the base, it has a slight sparkle so its reall pretty. i once dried i added a little acrylic flower on one nail on each hand and the coated with clear coat to ensure it stays on. i then used MUA pink nail polish with a dabber brush to create little pink dots on emmas index finger. and used top coat on all after to seal.

so here they are, i think they look really pretty, im going to do one a week of the emma nail designs, as she picks her colours and tells me what she likes design wise, impressive for an 8 year old :) x

see you next weeks for emmas nails. xx

Cherry Carmex Lip Balm

Hey ladies, ive been after one f these for a while now, but only ever seem to be able to fine the original one. so when i saw this today in superdrug i had to have it. ive heard so many great reviews on this product and i was really looking forward to trying it. As i had a superdrug voucher to spend i had to take advantage of this opportunity so got this along with some other goodies today.

so this lovely little lip balm is by carmex and they have a really nice range of items.this is the perfect size to pop in your handbag and feels amazing once applied. when you apply this is makes your lips tingle and they feel like that for a while, its a really nice feeling actually. it has a scent of cherry but not to heavy. its VERY moisturising and really feels like its doing your lips some good. it stays on your lips for a really good amount of time, continuing to do the job its meant to do. i find with lip blams you have to apply every hour usually as its worn off. its also recommends you apply before lipstick to lock in moisture to your lips while using products on top. which is also a bonus. i love this little lip balm and know ive already become a fan. this will live happily in my hand bag and get plenty of use im sure.

do you use carmex, let me know what you think love to hear your comments.

see you soon ladies xxxxx

June Glossy Box Review

Hey ladies, well im sorry this review is late but we had a little bit of a boo boo with my glossy box this month! i received my glossy box just under a couple of weeks ago and as usual was really excited to receive it. when i opened it, it was completely empty opps! you can imagine my face cant you lol. but glossy box were brilliant, i gave them a quick call spoke directly to a lovely lady at glossy box and she arranged a replacement to be sent out to me straight away 3 days later it was here, so a massive thumbs up to the glossy 
box team. so ive had time to sample my goodies and here is my review a little late but still here.

i was quite excited when i opened this box, and was VERY pleased not to see a bubble bath or mosituriser.

first of all i grabbed the big white bottle, was intrigued to see what it was, well this is a paul mitchell The Conditioner, its a leave in conditioner to add extra moisture to your hair. this says it helps balance moisture and prevents dryness and improves texture. now ive used this twice i while i thought it was going to leave my hair greasy looking from the feel of it, i was very surprised, you dont need alot and i have to admit it gives my hair some extra life and bounce and leaves it feeling very soft and floaty.this is a 100ml sample which is a really nice size and this sample is going to last a while, at full size 300ml it retails at £12.25 which i think is a reasonable price and i would highly consider repurchasing if it carries on making my hair feel this good.

the next item was a pair of HD tweezers obviously these are full size and they are quite sharp, which im guessing is why they offer high levels of precision. they are a must for every girls handbag so it says. but at £19.95 im sorry but you wouldnt catch me spending £20 on tweezers, i think my everyday ones that work just fine cost me £1 at asda lol, i think these are priced a little high but are nice to use and a lovely product to receive in this months box so well done glossy for something a little different.

the next item i got was this little bronzer by BM BEAUTY, this is the most warm pretty colour and will be lovely for a summer evening if you were going out. it has a slight shimmer and i really have enjoyed trying this, at £8 full size its a great price and well worth every penny, the only thing i would of liked to have seen is maybe the sample pot be wider and shallow, as i couldnt get a brush in and had to put some in a different lid and use that way and i think that was wasteful, im sure the full size is brush friendly though. 

i then recieved a glossy box brush i would say this was a good size blusher brush and it does feel very soft. its made from goats hair and says that this give a suspersoft make up application. it did feel soft and its comfortable to use but i did find its loosing bristles already and as they retail at £15 each i wouldnt be to happy to spend this amount of money on something thats shedding so early on in use.

now THIS i was really excited to try, ive seen this advertised along my travels somewhere and always wanted to see if it was a good as it claimed. this is the starter kit from VICHY ultra corrective foundation creams stick. obviously this is a stick form but it comes in little blister packs with different shades which is nice. this is a expert camouflage foundation to hide scars, blemishes ect that are harder to cover, and that it does. this product is amazing. i would highly recommend this. i have a scar on my cheek which i put to the test. my scar is only little but you can see it but luckily it doesnt bother me. for someone who has a scar or blemish that makes them uncomfortable this product is perfect, now at full size the foundation stick is 12g so a nice size and does retail at £19 but would last a good amount of time i think as you dont need to use to much. this is a great product and it would also be something i would use if i was going somewhere special that needed a heavier make up look.

all round this months box has been great i like the different type of products and im very happy with this months box. check out glossy box ladies if you havent already its my little monthly treat which i love to receive. with the added fun in that you dont know what samples your going to get.

Naked or Naked 2 or BOTH?

SO LADIES... this is the burning question in so many peoples minds im sure, i have the NAKED palette but when the choice came between the two it did take me a while to choose, i have had my NAKED palette quite a while now and i do have to say i love it, it is my fav set of shadows without a doubt. 

BUT.......... do yo need both??? are the too similar??? would you benefit from having both???
these questions i can never quite seem to answer!
so i put it down to you, what do you think? would it be worth while? would you like to have both? they way i see it is, the NAKED palette is more subtle, maybe more day tones, with a few that can be used as evening tones, and the NAKED 2 is more a dressy palette with a few you could use a day tones. so again im stuck a dilema i know im not the only one who struggles with.
its not like i wouldnt get the use out of them because i am always using the first palette.
i would LOVE TO HEAR your view on this ladies maybe it will make my mind a little clearer on it all.
leave me a comment below i cant wait. thanks ladies
see you soon xxx
