Dermalogica Face mapping

Hi lovelies,

I had my face mapped by they lovely dermalogica. I have never had anything like this and I have always wondered what my skin type is I always thought I had oily skin. As a brand I have always like dermalogica as they really go in to the science behind your skin and start there work from there. 

What they say about there brand 

When Dermalogica meets skin, skin health is redefined. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide. Why? Because for over 25 years, we've been dedicated to delivering skin health results through education, innovation, and professional recommendation, not through sparkly packaging, promises of miracle cures, or overblown hype.

 The therapist looking at my skin in detail.

The therapist then explains what she is seeing and gives you a detailed map of your skin. face mapping skin analysisl

 My Map. Dh Means dehydrations so as you can see my skin in in bug need of help in this area, P is pigmentation in my skin across my nose and cheeks. B is a blemish I had at the time. 

Next you get samples to try which have been individually selected to your skin needs. 

My samples are skin perfect, primer procleanse, essential cleansing solution, daily resurfacer and skin smoothing cream. I was really surprised that my skin was no oily and in fact dehydrated. I liked that they also explained the samples to you and when and how often you should use them. 

With in your pack you get a £10 off a £60 spend at there online store. 

I haven't tried all the products yet but i can say that I will need to get a skinperfect primer to give it a good trial as I think this could be a new wonder product for me.

NovaLash After care kit

Hi Lovelies, 

As promised I am reviewing my Novalash.com after care kit. Check out my Instagram for @missljbeauty For My lash updates. 
 Once you have your lashes fitted you receive this lovely little after care kit. (The had me at the packaging you know I love a nice bit for pink!)

The after care kit contains  1 cleanLASH by NovaLash, 1 mascara by NovaLash & LASHwand
 The pads
Glycol & carbonate free 3-in-1 makeup remover, cleanser, and conditioning pads I really like these they have a really nice thin pad. which makes it easy to clean your lashes. I use these every day to clean my lashes and I Have had no irritation at all in fact I find them more gentle then my normal make remover. I have never had these pull the lashes at all. the smell is amazing and you all know smell really effects how I like a product. 

What NovaLash says 
BENEFITS: • Specifically formulated for use with NovaLash Adhesives • cleanLASH pads are saturated with pomegranate seed oil for nourishing the eye area. cleanLASH is unique, specially woven, lint-free pads that do not catch the extensions or leave behind fibers like cotton balls or pads   cleanLASH moisturizes and conditions extensions 

Specifically formulated mascara for use with NovaLash Eyelash Extensions when necessary 
Now I have to be honest My lashes have been on over a month and I haven't had to use the mascara. they have stayed in place so well that I haven't had a need for it. But I will update you on this when I get the chance to use it.

What NovaLash says 
Mascara helps fill in the lash line where extensions may have shed, keeping a full look as the touch-up appointment nears

The LASHwand
The LASHwand This is a little miracle worker. This is a hand size to have on you all the time. I have not need to carry this thought. I find just a quick combing trough in the morning and this keeps my lashes in place until I get home. Its so good at getting the tangles out when I have them. I am blessed with lots of lashes so the lovely @Ciaramaywills told me as she fitted them. if you havent check out my first post here Why I have fallen For Novalash

A handy little info care and this completes the kit!
I have had my lashes for over a month and I have to say they are the best thing I have every had, I love that you wake up and your lashes look so beautiful that you don't have to do anything to your face to feel glam, I have found myself going make up free a lot more this month because I feel so confident in my face with these lashes. I will be recommending these to everyone. I can not believe they have lasted so long, they look great still. check my Instagram for the photos. 

Have you tried Novalash?

My New Halo Hair extentions

Hi Everyone, 

How are you today? 

 Its a lovely day here for a change and the postman delivered this a few days ago. EEEKKK My very own Halo. I have to say the whole process of getting your halo is so personal I love them already. All I did was send a photo of my hair to one of there amazing colour matching angels and she sent me her recommendation for the colour which would best match my hair, 
She also recommend my ideal lengthen which was 20 Ins and colour mix 20/60 Swedish blonde.
This is the pretty packaging  
 Love this will defo send off for my free shampoo and conditioner 

  How it arrives 
 There is so much hair and it feels really soft. 

 How to adjust your new halo 
 All you have to do is hold the halo bead and pull the wire through,
 check the position on your head. I use the little hollow of your head above your ears as my guide 
 To make it bigger you just do this in reverse. Then just a triple knot at the end of your selected 
size and cut the excess wire off and boom your halo is ready for styling! Where was this on my wedding day! Defo perfect for people like me with flat hair who wants the volume now and again but doen't want to commit to hair extensions 
 My hair
 Before the halo 
 Now for the afters 
 I love that this is real hair so it can be styled any way with GHDs or curlers as required. 

 Quick and easy plate and I'm ready to leave the house! 

Love this too much, 

I was worried that the Wire would be sore to wear but it really isnt. It never dug in and after a while I forgot I was wearing my new friend at all! This really is the perfect item for us thin haired girls who want the versatility of thick hair with out the hours in the salon getting extensions in! I'm going to film a few styling vids with my new halo soon so look out for them. 

Have you tried a Halo?

My new Top from elite99

Hi Everyone, 

How are you all today? 

As you know i am a magpie when it comes to new clothes and I couldn't resit this top!
Its from elitefashion99.co.uk and was a steal at £10.99. I have a real lack of tops in my wardrobe at the moment and really need to get my act together and get sorted for summer.  
Like most of you I am a nightmare finding good clothes that fits me well. Being a hour glass is lovely but not when shopping. 

I ordered this in small. I am a 8/10. I wanted it to be more fitted than floaty. 

 The detail at the bottom is so pretty I love that if you are daring you could have your stomach on show a little bit. 

 the draw string middle helps with my shape and really draw attention to your waist. 
 How I styled it, With my Zara high waisted jegging black vest top from primark.
My boots are from Clarks and my rebecca Minkoff quilted bag in blue 
with my mark Jacob watch and my Tiffanys necklace. 

The shirt is really nice to wear and you can roll up the sleeves with a button on the side of the arm which I really like. the quality is really good for the small price of this top. 

Postage was super fast and I wouldn't hesitate to use Elite99 again. 

Have you bough any new items?
