First Impressions | Nivea Mens Post Shave Balm

Nivea Post Shave Balm First Impressions, Nivea Mens Post Shave Balm, Nivea Mens Post Shave Balm Review

So after giving into the beauty hype (it does get you sometimes) I purchased the Nivea Men's Post Shaving Balm to replace my usual Primer I was actually pretty excited to use this and it would work out a lot cheaper that buying a primer and I love a bargain so I had big hopes since a lot of people seemed to love it however..it didn't work for me. Sigh.

When I apply my usual primer it softens my skin and blurs out my pores making my skin feel nice and soft and look so much softer. The shave balm is liquid based so it's hard to pour an amount on your hand without it dripping everywhere and once I applied it onto my face I didn't notice anything special it just left my face feeling wet and damp, hmm, not great.

So after waiting a whiiiile for it to finally dry out I applied my makeup and noticed it looking cakey in certain places and my make up just didn't sit right. So I went back to my usual primer and there was no cakiness and my make up looked much much better.

 So unfortunately for me was this worth the hype? Not so much. I may go back to it and try it again but for now it's going in the drawer.

Have you tried this out? Did it work for you?

Personalised Gifts with Squiffy Print

Personalised Pouch, Squiffy Print, Personalised Gifts

I kindly got gifted this lovely Personalised Pouch* from Squiffy Print. Squiffy Print is run by Jessica a girl boss who started her business by printing t shirts and has developed into more personalised products like this lovely pouch selling them on Not On The High Street and Etsy.

I cannot compliment the printing enough I chose the gold glitter writing on a black pouch because I loved the way it looked, and it just shouted Christmas to me! I'm obsessed with the glitter writing it's so pretty and the glitter hasn't flaked off at all. The pouch is a really good size I'd definitely say it's large and ideal for traveling, keeping in your handbag, a pencil case, storing make up literally so many different things! I've already been putting it to good use.

I think this along with the rest of the Squiffy Print personalised products would make an ideal gift and Christmas gift for anyone, the website is easy to navigate therefore making your personalised preferences easy to apply, you can choose your colour of item, what words you would like and the colour of your font.

I'm obsessed with this as you can probably tell by the amount of Instagrams I've been posting with it ooops!

September Favourites

Monthly Favourites

So this favourites is all lip products that I've been loving in September basically. The first one is a lip balm from Zoellas beauty range called Kissy Missy - this is a really pretty bright pink tinted lip balm great for when you want a slight pop of colour quickly, this is ideal.

The next lip products are lip balms from Lip Smacker they keep your lips hydrated and the scents are amazing, they smell just like the real thing such a novelty but I love them!

I've wanted to try Nyx Lip Creams for soooo long and finally purchased one in the shade Sydney and I love it so so much I really want to get more of these, the staying power is really good and its really well pigmented I don't want to say too much as I'll probably do a review of it soon but loooooove these. (Let me know your favourite NYX Lip Creams!)
