Herbivore Botanicals – Coco Rose – Luxe Hydration Trio Collection

IMG_0364.JPG

A wonderful introduction to the Herbivore brand!

If you haven’t stumbled upon the much coveted Vegan brand Herbivore, then this might be the set that introduces you to their world. Herbivore is a Vegan, natural company which combines the focus on the modern clean beauty movement with result-driven products, in insanely aesthetically packaging.

This is their Coconut + Rose Luxe Hydration Trio set, where you get three stars of their collection in this curated set. This set includes their Rose Hibiscus hydration spray, their Coco Rose lip conditioner and their Coco Rose body polish, in a smaller travel friendly size as a perfect discovery package.

Their Rose Hibiscus coconut water face mist is lovely to refresh bare skin or to set makeup with a touch more hydration. The Coco Rose smells delicious, but is a harder, solid type balm which takes a while to warm up so applies in chunks rather than a normal lip balm, which is a bit disappointing.

The body polish is one of the drier of exfoliating polishes, which means it does requires a bit of water to lubricate the exfoliating as it does get a bit raw if used on bone dry skin. Due to this, it does make a wonderful exfoliator to use in the bath as opposed to the shower.

Bottom Line: Wonderfully natural, vegan products that give results every time!

OMOROVICZA – Facial Mist – Queen of Hungary Mist

IMG_4672

A refreshing mist to revive your tired out skin, with a cosy scent!

 

I got this as part of my Discovery Set along with my other Omorovicza goodies – you can find my first impressions review of the Discovery Kit here.

Firstly, I must point out how lovely the scent is. It is a warm, comforting, slightly citrus scent reminiscent of the other Omorovicza skincare items. The mist on this is insane – its not even a spritz or spray, it is like a puff of moisture that douses my skin in moisture. The spray is so fine to allow your skin to absorb it whilst refusing to get drenched – I have found the spritz on my other sprays, such as my Gerard Cosmetics Setting Spray, to be large and clumpy and I’m often drenched after a few light sprays.

You can use this as a moisturising primer before makeup, or a setting spray to add a dewy finish! It’s also perfect for having in your handbag to freshen up your makeup as the day goes on, or to use on makeup-less skin for a quick pick me up! I have this in my bag if I’m travelling as I can retreat to a restroom and spritz up to feel comfortably refreshed.

Bottom Line: A lovely scented refreshing facial spray that can revive your skin after a long day., or add a boost of hydration in your morning skin routine.

Omorovicza – The Discovery Kit – First Impressions

IMG_4259

The perfect kit to introduce you to the skincare brand from Budapest!

I was lucky enough to get this kit from my partners parents as a Christmas present this year, as they know I’m into my skincare and make-up! They weren’t too sure if I liked the brand, so decided to get me the Discovery Kit so I can try a bit of everything the brand has to offer.

This kit includes the following;

I’ve tried Omorovicza before and you can find my previous reviews here, and I will be using and reviewing each of the items over the next few weeks so keep your eyes open!

IMG_4258

This kit is the perfect, budget friendly way, to try out this brand and see whether it is perfect for your skin! I am amazed by the generous sizes of the products – they’re not deluxe samples, their travel friendly sizes!

Bottom Line: The full size versions of these items range from £25-£85, so the fact you get a large amount of each product for just £59 – it makes it such a good deal!

Price: £59.00 at Cult Beauty

BONUS: Cult Beauty are giving away a full size version of the Queen of Hungary Mist this month if you spend over £90, and they’re doing free delivery too! Click the image below for the deal!

Gerard Cosmetics – Slay All Day Setting Spray – Jasmine

FullSizeRender

The one spray to rule them all! 

I’ve seen these sprays all over Instagram, and finally took the plunge after having such a good experience with their liquid lipsticks!

Well, I am so glad I did! I’ve been using Urban Decay’s Chill setting spray for years now, and I’m afraid that its now looking sad on my shelf as I’ve been using this constantly!

The smell is amazing, fresh and floral – but if Jasmine isn’t something you’d like – no worries! They’ve got nine other fragrances including coconut, peach, watermelon and green tea! Talk about plenty of choices! The scent lasts a long time, which can be off putting for some, but for me I love it.

This spray is so versatile as you can spray it before applying your makeup as a primer, and then spraying after your makeup is applied to set it all. The spray makes my makeup look freshly applied for my entire 10hr shifts, controlling any oil that could appear.

Bottom Line: Gerard Cosmetics have just created the best selection of setting sprays that really make you Slay All Day!

Price: £10 for the Mini 30ml, £14 for the full size 100ml @ BeautyBay.com
