Ultra Pure Review




Hello my loves and welcome back to my blog:) It feels like ages since I have blogged and especially a product review blog post!!! I need to get my act together and get back on the blogging wagon!!! No better way to get back on it than with these amazing products I was so kindly sent by Ultra Pure. 

Who are Ultra Pure? 

So for many of you who may not have heard of Ultra Pure before they are an Irish company based in Co, Mayo, they have been around for over 15 years and have produced top quality,  natural skin care and body care products including oils, creams and gels. 
You can purchase these products in most pharmacies nationwide and the UK. Pharmacies including Ryan's Pharmacy in Edenderry :) 

So I was kindly sent these products to try out. I was kind of familiar with the products name, however I had never actually tried them so I was quite apprehensive as to how I would find them. I have to say I have fallen in love with these toners!!! I would suffer with dry to combination skin with breakouts at certain times of the month which are a total pain!!! I have found since using the Rose water in particular has completely balanced out my skin and I am not breaking out half as much as I had been previous. 

So the products I so kindly received are the following: Witch Hazel toner, Witch Hazel and Rose water toner, Rose Water toner and Rose water and Glycerine toner. I will give a description of each product below and what their properties are. 

What is Rose Water ?


Rose Water has been used for centuries 
for skin care and even medicinal purposes. It is a completely natural antiseptic and also contains an astringent called phenyl ethonone meaning it reduces inflammation and irritation of the skin. It can be used to balance the PH of the skin meaning it will balance out the appearance of the skin if you are prone to acne or blemishes. 


Rose water and Glycerine 



So these 2 ingredients combined together are beneficial for both skin and hair!! Don't you just love a multi use product :) It cleanses and moisturizes the skin, leaving it feeling clean, soft and refreshed . There is a very delicate scent from the rose petals  too which just tops it off :) You can also use this product as a facial cleanser and can make a face mask from its ingredient too :)  I really do love this one in particular as it just soothes my skin so much, I use it every day and night after cleansing my skin and I can really feel and see the difference myself. 

What is Witch Hazel?


Witch hazel is an astringent produced from the leaves and bark of the witch hazel shrub. These products are 100% pure and natural. The plant extract was used for medicinal purposes for years and years and today can be found in majority skin care products, particularly in toners.  Like the Rose water products, 

Witch Hazel and Rose Water 


So this toner can be used on all skin types. Again all of these toners are suitable for the most sensitive skin including skin which may be prone to eczema or acne. This one is extremely soothing, refreshing and leaves the skin feeling toned. 

So overall I was 100% impressed with these products and would definitely recommend  them to anyone! Espcially someone who may be prone to skin condition s or sensitive skin. 

Have you tried any of these products? IF so please do share in the comments or on any of my social media links below :) 

I want to say a massive thank you to ITWBN for this amazing collaboration with Ultra Pure and also to Ultra Pure company too for the fantastic opportunity to try these products :) You can find ITWBN on the following social media platfroms, you should most definitely go check them out they're fab!!! 


You can also find Ultra Pure online too here. Their website is full of information about the amazing products they produce :) 

Thank you all so much for reading and I won't leave it as long to blog again I promise :D 

Until next time 
Lots of Love

Rimmel Glam Eyes eye-shadow Quad - Review




Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! Hope you're all having a great week so far :D 

So I recently purchased this eyeshadow palette as I was feeling somewhat adventurous and creative and hadn't bought any colour eye shadow palettes in a long time! So when I seen this combo on the Rimmel stand in work in Ryan's Pharmacy I just had to make it mine :) 

I love purples and turquoise/blues on brown eyes, they really make them pop!!!
So this one is Rimmel Glam Eyes quad eye-shadow in 021 State of Grace and it can be purchased from all leading pharmacies nationwide which hold a Rimmel make up stand in store and it costs around €8 :) 



So the eye-shadow quad itself comes with a guide of how to use this eye-shadow which is a massive help and well makes it pretty fool proof for us make up amateurs :P 



So I started off the with the lightest blue shade and applied that all over my eye lid and blended it all out. Then using my Bold Metals 201 Pointed Crease crease brush (Best Brush Ever !!!! )  I applied the darker blue in the crease of my eye and blended that out too. Next using my Real Techniques accent brush I applied the purple shade to the outer corners of my eyes and blended that all out too. It really was that simple! And lastly using the white/silvery shade I used this under the brow bone for highlight and to the inner corners of the eye too. I also brought some of the purple underneath my eye and put a greeny colour gel liner on the water line for a finished look. :)

I really enjoyed doing this look and enjoyed more so that it was so simple! I do however hope to have more time to play around with different eye-shadow looks in the near future! There are some other shades in this range I have my eye on to get too so I will share them all with you too :D 



Have you tried these eye-shadow quads? If so how did you find them? If you haven't would you like to ? let me know in the comments below or on any of my social media sites linked below :D 

Thank you all so much for reading

Until next time
Lots of Love

Miss Milly x- Review




Hey everyone!! 
So I haven't done a blog post in over 2 weeks!!! I have been taking a little break from the blogging world just to unclog my mind and get in to a routine with work and stuff! I really missed blogging though so I'm happy to be back posting and I'm very excited about this post today :)

So I was very excited when I was contacted by Miss Milly to review some jewellery for them. I had looked on their website a few times and spotted some gorgeous pieces on it. Check out their website here. When it comes to me and jewellery I really like to keep it simple and funky as much as I possibly can. I can't get away with massive statement pieces, they just don't suit me !! So I was very happy that Miss Milly was right up my street :)

So if you have never heard of this company then you're probably asking yourself "who are they". So Miss Milly are an award winning young and growing brand that began trading in 2012 and have focused on selling to retailers. They are based in the UK, however they source their beautiful pieces from all over the world and spend a lot of quality time picking unique and variations of costume jewellery and accessories to suit everyone for every occasion. They do everything from bracelets to necklaces, rings, scarves, etc.

The pieces I was so kindly given to review were the purple metallic thread bracelet, stud butterfly earrings and stud flower earrings, these came as a pair pack. They also come with a lovely gift box too as seen in the picture below :) 



I fell in love with this bracelet, It is just so my style. I love the deep purple, the magnetic clasp, everything about it! I just love that it is a little bit different. Not the usual every day bracelet. The metallic thread really makes it in to something unique and the colour is just gorgeous! I just love it!! This bracelet costs only £7.50 and can be purchased here 




Next up are these 2 pair of earrings. A butterfly and flower shaped silver studs. I love the simplicity of these earrings. Again I can't wear things that are big and bold as they just don't tend to suit me! So I love these. They are just perfect to wear while working too as they're nice and neat. I haven't taken them out since I got them. I love the butterfly ones as butterflies are kind of my thing, so they have a somewhat personal touch to them too. These cost only £9 and can be bought here 





Here is a look at a few other pieces Miss Milly have to offer :) 



Postage to Ireland is a standard £16.50, however this is due to the website catering mainly for wholesale businesses so for retail orders do not fret, you will be refunded any excess amount paid :) So if you get to the checkout and see this amount for delivery do not panic!!! Also with every purchase you get FREE Gift packaging :) 

Discount?? Yes Please

So Miss Milly has so kindly offered my readers 10% off your order :) How generous is that!! So all you have to do is enter the code TEN in the discount code box of the shopping basket before they go through to checkout. So while Christmas is just around the corner this would be the perfect opportunity to get a special someone in your life a nice unique piece of jewellery for amazing prices :) 

Here are links to all of Miss Milly's social media sites so head on over and check them out :)

I hope you enjoyed reading! If you are also a fan of Miss Milly and have purchased some of their fab pieces or maybe you have seen something you like since reading this post please do let me know in the comments below or on any of my social media sites linked below :) 

I just want to take this opportunity to thank Miss Milly for your generosity and for giving me the chance to review these beautiful pieces.

Thank you all for reading

Until next time

Vanish Gold Review






Hey everyone 
Welcome back to my blog :D Hope you all had a lovely weekend and are having a great week so far :) I had a great weekend as my little niece finally came in to world on Friday afternoon and oh my God girls she is amazing!!! She is unbelievably tiny and the most content baby I have ever come across!!! She is so chilled out!! She has my heart already!! 

The Little beauty herself xx 


So I was approached by Vanish to do a review on their products. At first I wasn't very sure how it might link in with the blog until it became very obvious to me that this product is actually something I/ might need in my life more than I realize. Having a make up mad 2 year old and being a make up lover myself  it became very obvious to me how this was going to fit in very well with the blog :) 

So just the other day as I was rushing out the door to see my new little niece Síofra, I had done my make up, lippie and all before I got dressed and of course I managed to smudge most of my lipstick on to my top, don't even ask how because I'm still baffled. I think I might have been calling Lucy while in the process of trying to get dressed. As you can probably tell multi tasking wouldn't be one of my high points, when getting ready to go anywhere anyway!! 


Lisptick on my top 
So I'm getting to the point, I seen a perfect opportunity to really put this product to the test!! Being completely honest I've always been quite skeptical of these kind of products and always have it in my head that they don't work!! Well how wrong was I!! The product I tried and tested was the Vanish Gold Oxi Action powder fabric stain remover.So I rubbed some of the vanish powder on to the stain and let it soak for a bout 20 minutes before putting it in the washing machine along with other bits too. I closed the door and poured some powder in to the drawer and let the machine do the rest of the work. 

So when I took the top out of the machine I was pleasantly surprised that the stain had actually vanished..... pardon the pun!! I was very impressed especially with this particular lipstick as it stays on your lips all day!!!  It was super easy to use and there is a list of directions for different ways of using the product depending o how bad the stain is! :)  Here are so tips on Stain Removal :) 




After :D 



So overall I was very happy with this product and will definitely continue to use it and save my clothes from being thrown out as I had done previous ones... sad times :( 

So the generous people over at Vanish have given me one of their Vanish Gold Oxi Action For Brilliant whites to give away to one lucky reader, this is a great opportunity for someone like me who was very skeptical to give it a go  So to enter this comp all you have to do is comment on my facebook page post (it will be pinned to the top of my page) and I will announce a winner next Wednesday the 21st October :) Good Luck to everyone ! 


Thank you again to the lovely people from Vanish for giving me the opportunity to give this a try! So happy I did now :) 

Hope you enjoyed reading :) 

Until next time
Lots of love
