False lashes have become somewhat of a life saver for me, they make me feel pretty and cover my distinct lack of lashes. And I've found yet another favourite pair of lashes! I don't know why it took me so long to get myself a pair of these! They're lovely. My flatmate swears by them and even has a blog of her own, go check her out at Fran Loves.

The lashes are really light and comfortable on the lids. I don't need to cut them at all, always a plus, and I wear them with a bit of mascara on top. They make my eyes look bigger and prettier, exactly what I want from false lashes! I've been wearing them on a pretty much daily basis, alongside my Nouveau Lashes Natural 1s. The only downside is that the packaging isn't great for storing them once opened.

The lashes come with a little pot of Duo lash glue, but I personally don't massively rate it. I'm sure it's absolutely fine for people with eyelashes, but for us poor trichsters, we need something a little stronger. I've been loving the revlon lash glue at the moment! 

You can decide for yourself whether or not you like them! You can also shop the link below if you're interested in getting yourself a pair! I would definitely recommend them. 

Thank you for reading and as always, would love to hear what you think.

Natural Potions Hot Oil Treatments

Natural Potions Hot Oil Treatment Review

At the start of the year, I was lucky enough to be sent some products from Natural Potions. Amongst my package, I was given some hot oil hair treatments to test. I've been so busy over the past few months with my degree that I've only just gotten round to testing them! Slap on the wrists for being a bad blogger.

Natural Potions is a brand I came across on Instagram, created by Fatimah and Mohammed in Leicester. All of the products are handmade from natural ingredients and the packaging is 100% recyclable. I really liked the Gift Set, you can read my post here on it, and so I've been really looking forward to using these treatments.

The treatments are fairly easy to use, they just demand you to commit 30 minutes of your day. As baths seem to be all the rage at the moment, it probably wouldn't be too hard for most people to find that time. I've just been useless recently!

There are a couple of different ways you can use the treatments. I decided to cover my hair in the oil, wrap it in a hot wet towel, wait 30 minutes and then shampoo and condition as normal. I was given a sample bottle and I used about half (so 30ml) and I have long hair. I then ran a towel under a hot water tap (our water goes pretty hot), squeezed out some of the water and popped it on my head. Getting the hot towel on was a little bit tricky, as I obviously don't want to burn my hands. But once it's on, it was comfortable (minus water dripping down my back!). I would definitely advise doing this in the bath instead!

So it turns out I needed to wash my hair three times to get this all out. I'm not sure if I put too much on or if I didn't wash it out properly the first time? Who knows. It was hard to know just how much of an impact the oil made, but I did feel like it made it feel stronger, healthier and softer. When the oil was still in after the first wash, my curls were really tidy with perfect little ringlets, they just looked a little oily. I will definitely just be doing my ends next time, and make sure I shampoo at least three times to try and get the oil all out!

Nudi is a new brand focused on maximising the benefits of coconuts, they have a range of different products and I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of samples of their Coconut & Benitone Clay Mask.

First of all, the packaging that the samples came in is so cute. I am a huge fan of pink and I love the confetti packaging and the little messages on the box. I really like the little pots for the samples as well. The pots aren't huge but I think I should be able to get about two/three masks out of each one - not too bad!

The mask smells divine, surprisingly sweet. I wasn't expecting it at all. I'm not 100% sure what is giving it the sweet smell, as it's not similar to coconut oil. Perhaps it's the mix of coconut oil and aloe vera. Who knows! The mask claims to moisturise without clogging your pores and tackles blemishes.

The mask is of a thick consistency but spreads out quite thinly making you look like you don't actually have much on. It made my skin tingle a little when it was first put on, something that I've found with other masks in the past. It dries quite hard (because, clay) and then looks weirdly scaly on your skin? It was weird but cool.

It's really easy to wash off, I just used a hot flannel. I then went and used my Clinique 3 Step to wash my face. My skin has been left feeling really soft and looking clear, especially on the blackhead nose front. I'm very happy with the results! My makeup applied really smoothly as well - always a huge bonus for me. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new mask!
