REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil Review

I'm a big fan of oils and serums alike so when I found out that REN offered a Serum Oil, I was most pleased. The REN Omega 3 Optimum Skin Serum Oil* is very light and liquidy in texture and smells great. This little product is packed with omega 3 (which promotes optimum moisture levels, cell renewal and restores elasticity), rosehip seed oil (which stimulates the metabolism of skin cells and is rich in vitamin A) and wheat germ oil (prevents and protects the skin from oxidative damage).
At night, I use a few drops and apply it all over my face. It is quickly absorbed into the skin, making it feel instantly hydrated. Afterwards my skin is radiant, soft to touch and is generally a lot more happier. I also found that my moisturiser goes on a lot smoother after using the Ren serum oil. I really do recommend the REN Skin Serium Oil if your skin is requiring a little boost and some TLC.

Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips Review

I think this has to be one of my favourite products of all time. I have various highlighting powders in my collection, ranging from opals tones, to gold, to violet, but I have yet to get my hands on a rose. Even though rose is one of my favourite colours, especially when it comes to makeup (note Sleek’s Rose Gold blush). So when I got the chance to try out Lily Lolo Rose Glow Shimmer Strips* I was rather jolly!

This product creates a perfect pink sheen across one’s skin, whether it is applied to the cheekbones, collarbones or d├ęcolletage. The rose glow strips could also be used as a wash of colour of the eyelid. The product itself is highly pigmented, easy to blend, and has good longevity.  

I apply Rose Glow to my cheekbones to create an elegant evening look. I find this the best wear to wear it as they are quite shimmery so it is best suited for nights out. All in all it is a stunning product which I for one will use a lot of. I definitely recommend it if you have a busy winter calendar coming up, as this would be the perfect product for you if you like to add a little bit of glow to your complexion.

Italy 2013

First of all, sorry for the bombardment of pictures, my apologies! I was going through my Italy album and thought I would upload some onto my blog. So here they are! I went to Italy for a wedding, first of all we stopped at Pisa, then went on to Siena, and then finally to Florence. Italy as a country is breathtakingly beautiful. For the wedding we stopped in an old country villa/mansion. It was incredible to say the least. The weather was very mixed, but we did get some hot days, hoorah. I honestly didn't want it to end. We've already made plans to go back again next year, I literally cannot wait!
