fLash eyelash serum – review*

Hi everyone! Its been a while I know, sorry for slacking but I’ve been majorly busy over the last couple of months. I started my second year of uni, started a new job and my mum opened a shop, making my life very hectic!!

However, I am back and kicking it of with a review of fLash eyelash serum. Recently, I have been seeing a lot of hype about various eyelash serums and the benefits they have, which has made me really intrigued. So when fLash got in contact with me to ask if i would like to give their product a try I was immediately very excited!

fLash is a brand that I have come across before when searching for anything that would make my short eyelashes grow, however I was a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of serums out there that I never decided on one to purchase. So obviously as soon as the opportunity arose to try out their serum, I was more than happy to. I feel a lot better about using this product as it is tested by an ophthalmologist and was created by a doctor, so I know its going to be safe for my skin.

I received the product in this nice box that was wrapped in cellophane, which made me feel more comfortable as I knew the product couldn’t have been tampered with (you can never be too careful!!). Inside the box was the product itself and instructions on how to use. I was also given a flyer with 5 must know facts about fLash eyelash serum and a lovely note welcoming me to the fLash bloggers team.

Using the eyelash serum is fool proof, however the instructions do come in handy. The directions tell you to use the product once daily to clean dry eyelids and to then wait 2 to 3 minutes for it to dry before using any cosmetic products. I chose to use it in the evenings right before bed so I knew it had plenty of time to sink in. With this particular eyelash serum you only have to glide once over your eyelashes from one corner to the other, which is fab as you don’t have lots of product on your eyes. fLash also state that within 2-6 weeks of daily application you will see the results.

The product itself is doesn’t really smell of anything and is a clear liquid. The applicator is a bit like a liquid eyeliner but the end of the wand it bends outwards which allows the product to spread across your eyelashes easier to ensure that only one coat is needed.

I used this product for roughly 5 weeks and found it worked really well. I constantly received compliments on my lashes, with many asking if i was wearing false lashes! As mentioned previously my natural eyelashes are short and have nothing of a wow factor about them. But when I started using it I began to see results in about 2 weeks, as they said I would. Unfortunately I forgot to take a before photo (I would forget my head if it wasn’t screwed on!!) however, you can see in the after photo how long my eyelashes have got (I’m wearing mascara because my natural lashes are quite fair).

I’m soooo pleased with how much this has made my eyelashes grow, but they’ve also got thicker too, BONUS!! I am going to continue to use this product and will post another photo when I’ve been using it even longer so you can see if they have continued to grow. My friends have gone and bought the serum for themselves as they are so pleased with my results!

Thanks for reading! x

With A/W just around the corner, i’m trying the make the most of my summer wardrobe before falling headfirst into a pile of chunky knits and fluffy coats. Fortunately, we have had a few sunny days to make the most before the cold weather hits.

Waistcoats have been a staple in many wardrobes this summer (especially mine!). Luckily for me, I can continue to wear them throughout A/W, thrown over a chunky knit or long sleeve top to mix up an outfit and add an extra layer.

Welcome back – OOTD #13

IM BACK!!! I stopped blogging for a little while due to having a lot going on but now I’m back and determined to be doing a lot more! Im hoping to have a little play around with my blog and change it up a little bit so it may look different next time you come and check it out.

Due to the lovely weather I had to head down to the beach and get some snaps in the sunshine! Myself and Courtney (Leighcourtney.com) had a great time taking the pictures, even though it was super windy, so excuse the hair being all over the place!

My fellow bloggers will know sometimes theres no-one around to take some photos for you, which is super annoying. So to tackle this problem I bought myself a tripod and remote so I can take them myself. So thats my excuse for these photos being a bit pants, as I was just getting used to using them (plus it was raining so I couldn’t take any photos outside 😦 )

February Favourites

I know its a little bit late but here are my favourite products that i’ve been loving throughout February…

DSC_0006

First up is the amazing Roller Lash by Benefit! This is a sample that I got from Elle magazine this month, when I heard about it being a free gift I went out and looked everywhere that sold magazines for one as it was flying off the shelves very quickly! Before this new mascara I did use the They’re Real by Benefit but always thought there was something I didn’t quite like like but couldn’t quite put my finger on it. But now i’ve tried this one i’ve noticed it lasts longer on my lashes, is less clumpy and much easier to take off.

The next two products go hand in hand, St Tropez Bronzing Mousse and Soltan Beautiful Bronze Exfoliating Sponge. As its coming into spring and the days are getting longer and slightly more mild, skin starts coming out! So this means it’s time to slap on a bit of colour so I look less like a sheet of paper. As anyone that applies fake tan knows exfoliation is key for a natural looking tan, so before applying it I step into the shower and do a complete exfoliation of my body from top to toe. This exfoliation sponge does the job perfectly without feeling too harsh on my skin.

St Tropez fake tans are (in my eyes) the best fake tan you can buy, it may be a little on the pricey side but its certainly worth it! It doesn’t streak or go orange and develops into a lovely colour that can be darker if left on a lot longer. It lasts a good amount of time and even longer if looked after.

White teeth is something that I am constantly thinking about and wanting. I’ve tried numerous teeth whitening products and are always left disappointed. When I heard about a lot of people using the Coco White brand, I instantly wanted to try it out for myself. Coco White works by using natural coconut oil to do a technique called ‘oil pulling’ to make your teeth whiter. They come in a few flavours, mint, lemon and vanilla, and come in a tube that is to be used once a day. You cut open the tube and swish the coconut oil around your mouth from 5 to 15 minutes (I thought this was a lot to begin with too, but if you do it whilst your busy doing something else the time quickly flies by!) Straight away, within a few days I began to notice a difference and so did the people around me, who complemented me and asked what product I used. It also made my teeth feel super clean!

I used to use these a while ago but stopped for some reason, but have now rekindled my love for them. These Eylure Pro-Lash Individual Eyelashes are AMAZING! I get the Fine to Full packet in black as I love being able to build them up to however I like them. I like to put them on and wear them day to day and then add a normal set of eyelashes on top when I want a more extravagant look. They can be a bit tricky to put on but there’s a knack and you just have to get used to it. I use the specific individual eyelash glue as this is super strong and lasts ages!

Last but not least the Aldi moisturising creams that I have recently reviewed (here). As promised I am doing a quick update to see how it’s going now that I have been using them for about a week and a half. I have been religiously using them day and night to see them at their full potential! After this time, I have noticed that they are still working well with my skin and I haven’t had a reaction to them like I do with some face creams. They keep my face nice and hydrated throughout the day (and night) and stop it getting dry. They are not greasy or heavy so work well under makeup too. I’m so pleased that I found these and for only £1.99!!!!!! I am definitely going to be using these everyday!

So these are the new products I have been using and loving this month. I hope that this post encourages you to try out these products on here, (make sure you let me know how you get on if you do!)
