It's time for my weekly vlog and this one is literally packed full of random shenanigans. At the start of the week I had a day of fun events, meeting Aerin Lauder, ice skating in the Jo Malone offices and catching up with old friends. Then came the weekend and what was probably the best meetup I've ever been to! 

I won't ramble on here, you can watch the video and here me chat about how much fun we had! Thanks to everyone who came!

I was hoping for this to be a rave review about one of my favourite brands bringing out brand new amazing lip glosses... Unfortunately that's not the case. 

I love Fresh as a brand. My mum and I have been using their products for years, especially the lip balms and scrub. I recently spotted the Sugar Lip Treatments on the Sephora website and my heart skipped a beat. I was imagining a balmy lip gloss in beautiful wearable shades. 

The packaging of these is spot on and really good quality. I also like the scent as it's just like their lip balms, fresh and zesty. The problem I found with these was the formula, which is really the most important part. The formula is very sheer and balmy which makes it really hard to apply without it looking streaky. Because it is so sheer, it dulls down the shades and they all become a bit beige and unflattering. 

I also found them to be really sticky on the lips and quite irritating to keep on. It's such a shame as I was excited for this launch, but I can't love everything! 

I'd still recommend checking out the Fresh Lip Balms as they really are the best!

For today's video I thought I'd take a seat on the sofa, get comfy and answer some of your questions! 

I picked some of my favourites from the #askLP hashtag on Twitter... warning, there is more terrible singing in this video! 

Enjoy xx

Origins Ginzing New Family Members

Monday, 28 July 2014

I've spoken before about the VitaZing tinted moisturiser, the GinZing eye cream, the GinZing mascara and more recently the GinZing moisturiser. It's a range formulated with caffeine to help tired looking look more refreshed.

Origins have recently extended the range even more so I thought I'd give you my thoughts on the new products...

First up is the Refreshing Scrub Cleanser which is my least favourite out of the two. It's a refreshing cleanser that multi-tasks exfoliating with cleansing for a 2-in-1. I love the smell and 'zinginess' but for me it didn't give my skin a good enough cleanse and I'm not a huge fan of physical exfoliants. 

The new Refreshing Face Mask is way more up my street. It's really nice to use in the morning which isn't usually a time I use face masks. You apply it onto clean skin and it instantly refreshes and relieves your skin of any irritation. After 10 minutes you can tissue it off and your skin will feel amazing. This has been really lovely to use especially during these warmer days. It's like an ice lolly for your face - don't quote me on that. 

The GinZing range is one of my favourites at Origins and definitely worth trying if you feel your skin is looking dull or tired. The products are really enjoyable to use and I love when you can actually feel them working. 

Have you tried anything from the GinZing range?

Happy Sunday everyone! For today's video I'm talking through some of my holiday beauty essentials... the bits I can't be without when I'm on the beach or by the pool. 

Hopefully it'll help you tick off a few things from your packing list and if you are going away, have a lovely time!
