Fashion and Style Police Reviews No 7 & Björk & Berries

I am always popping into our local Boots store for one thing or the another. I go in there with a list of items I need and usually with more than I planned to buy. During one of my numerous pop ins, I came across No 7 Essential Moisture Day Cream and decided to try it.

I love this No 7 Essential Moisture Day Cream a lot. And I can see myself using it for many years to come. It is a lovely moisturiser that does the work beautiful.

 

Björk & Berries Moonflower Eau de Parfum

I have used Björk & Berries perfume before and I really liked it. So I was super thrilled when I got this lovely Björk & Berries Moonflower perfume. The first Björk & Berries perfume I used was the White Forest which was lovely. So to think this Moonflower is even better tells you how amazing the fragrance is.

Product Review: Boots No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes & Oil-Absorbing Sheets

No 7 Quick Thinking Wipes Image

I walked into my local Boots store one sweet day to get some supplies for my toddlers, only for me to find myself in the beauty section. I promised myself I was only looking around, window shopping they call it, but after a few minutes of window shopping, I found myself heading to the counter, with some beauty supplies in my basket. The friendly lady at the counter quickly attended to me, and while I was waiting, my eyes fell on a No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes pack. Now I am usually not a No 7 fan, don’t think I have ever used any of its products, I usually see the brand as one of those brands that does not make products for my skin tone, but this product got me interested, and I decided to try as I am always on the lookout for face wipes and cleansers that do the work quickly and effectively.

I saw the price tag was £7, but I didn’t think much of it, until the sales lady doubled checked with me to confirm I was happy to buy it. That made me think again about the price, and whether it was too pricey for just 30 wipes, but I decided to have it anyway. I also got the Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets and I have tried both products for weeks now.

Here is the product description for No 7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes –

No7 Beautiful Skin Quick Thinking Wipes are suitable for all skin types and remove even waterproof mascara.

Specially created for when you’re short of time, these gentle, fragrance free wipes sweep away impurities and remove all traces of make-up, even waterproof mascara.

With pro-vitamin B5 to moisturise and soften, plus extracts of witch hazel and fennel to clear pores and leave your skin feeling smooth and fresh.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. I found the wipes easy and convenient to use. You basically just take a wipe, and wipe your entire face, and it removes all makeup.
  2. I love the fact that it takes off waterproof makeup too.
  3. It is great for all skin types and tones.
  4. It is great to take away with you on holidays and trips, or when you are too busy to cleanse your face properly.
  5. I like the resealable pack. The packaging is pretty.
  6. It is great for sensitive skin, I have one, so I know.
  7. It is fragrance free, which is fab.
  8. It is fine for daily use.

 

CONS

  1. For 30 wipes, £7 is a bit a pricey, but it does the job and  I do get Boots Advantage points so it is OK.

Overall, I do recommend this product. It performs brilliantly and it is a great handy product to have around if you can afford it.

 

Boots Oil Absorbing Sheets Image

 

Here is the product description for Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets –

These soft sheets are impregnated with salicylic acid to help prevent spots. It quickly and easily removes excess oil and shine. It can be used over make-up without smudging.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. These sheets remove excess oil and shine, without smudging the makeup.
  2. It is quite affordable at £3.99 for a pack of about 48 sheets.
  3. It creates an instant matte complexion.
  4. It is easy to apply, you can use it without a mirror, while you are on the go.
  5. It is great for the oily/combination skin.

CONS

  1. None.

This is a fantastic product. I recommend this Boots Oil-Absorbing Sheets to anyone struggling with an oily/combination skin. You will be needing this especially now that the warm weather is almost here.

 

What are your thoughts on both products? Have you used any of them? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

 

 

 

 

 

Making Up Your Eyes

Image

The eyes are the window to the soul. A good eye makeup will add some definition to your look, enhance the colour and shape of the eyes. It is important to use the right products to achieve the perfect look. The following products are essentials:

Eye Base

A good eye base will keep your eye shadow in place all day without creasing or smudging. I recommend MAC Prep + Prime.

Image

Eye Shadows

Eye shadows can make or break any look. You can go for cream or powder eye shadows. You get more colour shades with Powder eye shadows (I prefer them). Go for powders that feel smooth to touch. I recommend No 7 eye shadows.

Image

Eye Pencils

Eye pencils define the eyes, go for dark brown rather than black. Dark brown creates a softer look and makes the eye look bigger. I recommend Rimmel eye pencils.

Image

Liquid Eye Liner

Liquid eye liners give a strong fierce look. It takes the eye definition to another level. Smart product if you apply it properly. I recommend Mary Kay liquid eye liner.

Image

Mascara

Mascara defines the eyes immediately. It transform your face completely. Go for a colour that will work with your natural colouring. I use black most days. Also, never pump your mascara wand(you know that thing we do when our mascara is almost finished), this will pump air into the tube, which will dry it out. I recommend Max Factor mascara.

Image

Eyebrow Pencils

Eyebrows are the frame for your eyes. It is important to use a pencil to define or colour nicely plucked eye brows. Go for a natural look by selecting a colour next to your hair colour. I recommend Iman eyebrow pencils.
