Fashion & Style Police Reviews Accessorize Lovelily Perfume

Hey peeps! Yes it is me; the perfume addict with yet another perfume review post. How would life be without perfumes? I don’t know but I know I won’t cope so well. I tried the amazing Accessorize Lovelily Perfume some weeks ago, and I have been dying to tell you all about it.

It was my first time trying an Accessorize perfume and I am glad I got the opportunity to. I recently write a review of the Monsoon Rose Gold perfume, a sister brand of Accessorize, and that was amazing as well. I am happy to see high street brands stepping in the perfume department.

This fragrance opens with juicy top notes of raspberry and orange, invigorated with a zesty accord of bergamot. At its heart, Muguet (lily of the valley) combined with Jasmine work together to add a fresh and floral depth. Aromatic musks and sweet vanilla are united at the core.

Here are my thoughts on this perfume –

 

PROS
  1. I like the sweet fruity and vibrant fragrance.
  2. The striking bottle with a flower cap is a beauty. It looks amazing on my dressing table.
  3. It is quite affordable at £19 for a 75ml bottle.
  4. This is a long-lasting fragrance. It stayed on for some hours.
  5. I like the fact that the fragrance is not overpowering.

10 Ways to Protect your Skin from Winter Dryness

I think we have all experienced the unfortunate occurrence of dry skin in the winter. The cool breeze is constantly blowing on your face and the air is just so dry. Then, you find yourself with a red, chapped, and peeling face. Sometimes, it can seem like this skin mishap is unavoidable, but think again. Here are 10 ways to protect your skin from that unfortunate winter dryness.

 

Moisturize – all the time

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. We simply cannot express how important it is to moisturize. Your skin needs to be moisturized to stay soft, smooth, healthy, and glowing.

Of course, you probably know that you should always moisturize before putting your makeup on in the morning. But, did you know you should also moisturize after you wash your face at night?

Ideally, you should moisturize twice each day. Keep a bottle of moisturizer close by so you don’t forget.

Choose your moisturizer carefully

But, with all the moisturizing, you need to make sure you select the best product for your skin. Be careful when choosing your moisturizer because some products have ingredients that might actually dry your skin out even more. Go for a smart formula that uses natural and nourishing ingredients.

 

Use lukewarm water

It can be tempting to wash your face with steaming hot water – it feels good on your skin. But, in the winter, the warm water strips away the oils from your skin.

However, by lowering the temperature just a little bit and using lukewarm water for your shower and to wash your face and hands, you will find that your skin maintains that natural oil it needs to stay soft.

 

Drink plenty of water

It is easy to get in enough water when it is hot outside, but it becomes difficult when it is cold as we drink more coffee and tea. But, don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside too – not just from the outside like it gets through moisturizing.

 

Hydrate through various methods

In addition to drinking plenty of water, you should also practice other ways of hydrating from the inside, out. During the winter, focus on eating foods high in water content such as vegetables like cucumbers and tomato.

 

Use DIY masks

Aside from moisturizing, another great way to ensure your skin is getting enough hydration is to use homemade masks during the winter months.
Most DIY masks use household items that are great for naturally moisturizing the skin and providing it with nutrients to protect it from the dry air.

Exfoliate

Don’t forget that getting rid of dead skin cells is another important step to protecting your skin from the dry winter air. Once you exfoliate, follow immediately with your chosen moisturizer.

 

Protect your skin

Taking preventative measures like moisturizing and hydrating your skin are great ways to avoid dry skin in the winter. But, another sure-fire way to avoid dry skin is to protect your skin by covering it up using gloves, hats, and scarves.

 

Humidify your home

While the air might be dry outside, you likely don’t think about how dry it also gets in your home. Having the heater on inside dries the air out even further – leading to more dry skin.

To help prevent this, add a humidifier to your home to moisturize the air a little bit while still keeping your home warm.

 

Change your cleanser

Cleansers can be one of the main reasons you experience dry skin. During the winter months, look for a cleanser that is hydrating and provides more moisturizer than your typical cleanser.

It will be much less frustrating to take care of your skin from the beginning rather than trying to fix it once it is already dried out.

 

By following these few simple tips, you can be on your way to moisturized skin – even in the winter!

6 Beauty Products Men Hate

Women like playing around with our look. We follow the latest trend in fashion and beauty, buy the latest makeup products and follow tutorials to create that perfect look.

 

 

Beauty products men hate image

 

 

I always wondered what men thought about all the effort we put in making ourselves look glamorous. So I did a bit of digging. I asked a few men on what they thought of some of the beauty/makeup products we used and here are the products men love to hate.

 

Lip gloss

In an attempt to make our lips look nice and healthy, we apply lip balm. Sometimes we want to make them more presentable and give our lips a bit of a shine by applying lip gloss.

Although lip gloss looks very appealing to us women, men don’t like them very much. They find lip gloss very sticky and hate how it tastes as well, when they go for a kiss.

 

Dark lipstick

Dark lipsticks are in vogue and it has become very common to see women with blue, deep purple and even black lipstick. Although we find dark lipstick appealing and stylish, many men don’t understand the idea behind such unnatural colours. Unfortunately for us ladies, men have been heard to make fun of our dark coloured lipsticks.

 

Hair extensions

Sometimes we need a little help when it comes to having good-looking hair. Due to hair damage, weak hair and the desire to have long hair, some of us go for hair extensions for the needed hair boost.

When you choose the right shade and have it fixed properly, hair extensions can look very appealing. However, this is another one the guys don’t seem to like much. When they run their hands through your hair and find their fingers get stuck in the parts where you attached the hair extensions it can be a big turn off for them.

 

Fake eyelashes

Fake eyelashes are another one on the list of beauty products men hate. We love and admire long beautiful eyelashes as they make one’s eyes look more alluring. And when we apply mascara, they make the eyes more distinct and gorgeous.  That is why women rush to fix fake eyelashes to get that desired look, if the natural eyelashes do not do the work. But men claim to hate it.

 

Glittery Eye shadow

You know the eye-catching glittery eye shadow we apply on those really fun days when we feel like trying something a little different? Glittery eye shadow adds glam to your outfit and makes you look amazing. However, some men claim to hate this particular type of makeup.

 

Fake nails

When we are feel like having a good pamper session, we usually go for a manicure and a pedicure. Fixing fake nails also adds to the whole glam. I used to be a huge lover of fake nails. I used to have them done regularly before I had my twins. But since I became a mother, I can’t be bothered to get the nails done.

Beautifully painted nails always look wonderful, but some men claim to have an issue with the fake nails.

 

According to my research, these are the beauty products men hate. What do you think of them? Did any surprise you?

 

PS –  Tongue in cheek sort of post.
