Jourdan Dunn Covers Glamour Magazine UK April 2017

The beautiful Jourdan Dunn is the cover girl for Glamour Magazine UK April 2017, and I am loving the cover!

 

glamour-magazine-april-2017

 

Jourdan Dunn looks great on this month’s Glamour Magazine cover. I love her short hair and simple makeup. Her outfit is edgy and so her, and that smile is so beautiful. This is one issue I will definitely be reading this month.

In this issue, Dunn chats with Glamour about her career, new collection with Missguided, and everything else in between.

 

On her new collection – LouDunn + Missguided

“I want to have the final say, because it’s my name and it’s a representation of me. I don’t want to have my name on it if other people have done all the work.”

I like the sound of this collection already, and can’t wait to see it in flesh!

 

On designing a collection for “real women” vs models

“I don’t really like the term ‘real women’. When you compare ‘real women’ to models, it’s like they are not real, and it’s like, what do you mean? I live on earth. I have breasts, I have a vagina, I am very much real.”

I get what Jourdan means, she is a real woman of course, but many of these collections are not designed with a ‘real woman’ in mind.  But I guess since this collection is a representation of her, it is going to fit a certain body type more than others, and there is nothing wrong with that.

On her attitude to life

“I have down moments, but I just let them be moments and not drag on. I’m like ‘Be a big girl, get on with it, you’ve got shit to do’.”

That is exactly how I see life too.

 

I love the sound of this issue, it ticks all the right boxes for me. I am looking forward to reading Jourdan Dunn’s interview in full, and the other features as well.

Will you be reading? What are your thoughts on this issue?

Product Review: Original Source Shower Gels & Boots Botanics Eye Roll

I bring to you some products I have been using lately. I have been using these Original Source Shower Gels & Boots Botanics Eye Roll for weeks, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them, especially the shower gels.

I have used all the Original Source Shower Gels, and I do love every one of them, but these three right here are my favourites – Lavender & Tea Tree, Vanilla & Raspberry and Lemon. I am also very fond of the Mango Shower Gel, but didn’t get to photograph it.

Here is the product description –

Original Source is made with natural plant extracts and authentic fragrances found from all aspects of nature.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. 100% natural fragrance.
  2. Tested on humans, and not animals.
  3. Very affordable at £1 each.
  4. Easily accessible at Boots, Asda, Superdrug, Morrisons, and many other stores.
  5. They all smell amazingly good, and lather quickly.
  6. I love the simple packaging.
  7. Feels great on my skin, and leaves it feeling clean and soft.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this Original Source Shower Gels. They are the real deal, and there is a flavour for everyone, I think there are about 13 flavours available. I will be buying these again for sure.

 

The Boots Botanics Refreshing Eye Roll is another product I have been using recently. Here is the product description:

 

This lightweight gel is quickly absorbed to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

The fragile under eye area feels immediately cooled and refreshed, while hyaluronic acid provides much needed hydration to dull, delicate skin.

Hibiscus is nature’s brightness booster and a wonderful hue of pink.

Natural AHA’s from the flower act as mild exfoliators to help leave skin smoother and brighter.

 

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. It feels great on my skin. It calms the eye area.
  2. It is nicely packaged, and easy to carry around.
  3. It is quite affordable at £4.37 for a 15ml tube.
  4. It is tested on humans, and not animals.

CONS

  1. I am unsure about this product. I have not noticed any major difference in my eye are.

It does relax my eye area, so I may buy it again but I am still unsure about it.
