#LFBESTOFBRITISH BEAUTY BOX REVIEW ❤


Hello my lovelies

Hope you're all keeping well? I'm probably not the only one who is thinking why are we having gale force winds and heavy rain in August?! On a brighter note though it does give my blogging mojo a good boost. I love nothing more than snapping a few pics, making a cup of soothing herbal tea and rambling about my favourite beauty products, whilst its wet and windy outside. I am just about getting over the fact that I actually shot the images for this post and realised I had left one out (oops) I'm definitely suffering after having such a bad night sleep last night. Today's post is going to be about the #LFBestOfBritish Beauty Box, which I added to my online cart just before purchasing some Jurlique goodies from Look Fantastic. It was a surprise box, so I had no idea about the contents and I didn't look them up either. For just £15 I am seriously over the moon, the products are incredible and I think it's one of my favourite and most useful beauty boxes to date, plus its great to support British brands too! So before I begin to ramble lets get into what products I received in my #LFBestOfBritish Box...
It was nice to see a familiar face within the #LFBestOfBritish Box, as I actually had a Bloom and Blossom body wash sample from a Birchbox before that I really liked. The Rejuvenating Facial Spritz has a total of 11 all natural ingredients including Gotu Cola Leaf Extracts, which is known for reducing dark circles, lines and generally transforming your skin from lacklustre to lustrous.
Next up in the box was the Percy & Reed Wonder Balm, which I was excited to see as I have heard some good things about this product, plus being a double award winner! It is designed to act as a base for styling products, as well as taming wild and frizzy locks. My hair is pretty thick and can sometimes get a little coarse, so I'm hoping that Wonder Balm will be a welcome addition to my haircare routine.
I love a bit of Balance Me! However, their products have fizzled out of my routine over the past 18 months, so I'm excited to try this serum. Formulated with antibacterial May Chang, Lavender and Eucalyptus this Congested Skin Serum is the perfect way to banish signs of irritation without any harsh chemicals, plus it smells ahhmazing!!
My lips are in a pretty bad state at the moment condition wise, so the BEE Good lip balm was a very welcomed addition to the box! For some reason I just seem to loose Lip Balms and half of my favourite ones have gone on the run. The Vanilla & Honey BEE Good Balm is formulated with hydrating Borage Oil and super nourishing British Beeswax to make sure your lips are beautifully hydrated, dewy and radiant.
I do love a good face mist and the REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist was another nice addition to the #LFBestOfBeauty Box. However, I kind of wished there was only one mist, but hey I'm certainly not going to complain, as I love a goodf ace mist! Described as an ultra-fine protective spritz, this blend of zinc and manganese amino acids, quercetin ward off free radicals and help anyone living a fast lifestyle to maintain a youthful, dewy look.
Last but not least we have the Renu Lip And Eye Active Lift which uses wild yam extract to promote collagen production, as well as soya extract and amino acid to help firm and plump up deeper lying lines. The full size version is a whopping £52, so I'm looking forward to seeing how I get along with this product.

Overall, I'm so impressed with my LFBestofBritish Beauty Box that I'm actually going to sign up to a subscription. It was such a lovely treat to come home to after a long and very busy day at the marketing office. The best thing about this box is how useful everything is and of course this box is supporting British brands, which I love! It was also a bargain at £15 as there is well over £50 worth of product in the box. The price does decrease when you sign up to the subscription aslo! I hope you have enjoyed this review and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. 

Have a good week lovelies

Skincare Secrets | Favourite Cleansers ❤

Hello my lovelies!
Long time no blog! I know I've been away for a little while, but in all honesty I have really needed it. I've had to adapt to quite a few new situations recently, and it's left me with a little bit of the dreaded bloggers block. However, I'm definitely starting to feel the buzz again and this weekend I've been busy sorting through my new purchases to see what reviews and beauty rambles I can bring to my blog over the coming weeks. I know quite a few bloggers have been feeling a little meh lately about blogging, which I do think is down to the way that blogging is growing and heading in so many new directions. However, I'm trying my best not to get caught up in that overwhelming feeling of not being good enough anymore, and just taking back to basics! I've decided to do a little blog series called #SkincareSecrets where I share all my favourite Cleansers, toners... you name it! Today, I'm starting off with a few of my current favourite cleansers. Hope you enjoy!

First up we have what I always refer to as a "spa in a jar". I've never used a product that has been able to transport me into a state of luxurious bliss like this. It's not just a pretty face either! It has some seriously impressive ingredients including Elderberry, Starflower, Padina Pavonica and luxurious Rose and Mimosa waxes to intensely cleanse and nourish the skin. I tend to use this about two/three times a week, especially when I'm in need of a luxury treat. 

After almost finishing up my third Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, I decided to add a newbie to my collection! The Clinique Take Off The Day Cleansing Balm is a completely faff free cleanser that takes off make-up amazingly well. It's fragrance free and very gentle, which in a way made me miss the aromatherapy benefits of EH, but actually there's nothing not to love about this Clinique alternative. It has all the luxury traits of a good cleansing balm, just minus the essential oils and strong scent.
This is definitely getting there in terms of HG status! Why did I wait so long to add this to my collection?! A potent blend of Pumpkin Enzyme, Vitamin A, C, E, Starflower Oil and Oskia's signature MSM formulation make this a complete powerhouse. The best thing about this cleanser is that it's gentle enough to use twice a day, but effective enough to notice a difference after just a week. My skin has definitely become much brighter and smoother since using this cleanser regularly, I can see why this is a blogger favourite!

Since upping my fitness regime, I've definitely found a use for my Michael Todd Charcoal Cleanser, which has recently been feeling a little sorry for itself in my bathroom. I love to use this after a sweaty session at the gym, as it acts as a magnet to gently draw out  any unwanted impurities. It has a thick gel texture, which lathers really nicely without leaving your skin feeling stripped or dry. 

Last but definitely not least I have to mention my beloved Garnier Micellar Water. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with this product and it's still my favourite way to remove make-up and dirt super quickly if I'm a little short for time. 

Who else loves a good cleanser? I'm totally obsessed with them at the moment, especially the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. I would love to hear from you in the comments section below, I've missed chatting to you lovelies!

My Everyday Face ❤

Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? I must admit I love a Sunday and even more when it's a little bit overcast. It's been so humid recently, so I'm glad for a down day where I can just chill and blog. Don't get me wrong, blogging in the sunshine is just the best feeling. However, I definitely get more distracted when the weather is nicer! I'm also doing a lot of Snap Vlogging at the moment, so if you fancy a peek into my day to day life, as well as behind the scenes blogging then add me : JewelBeautyBlog. So, today I'm talking about my current everyday face! I've actually managed to nail down a regular routine, instead of swapping and changing products from my collection. These products give me the perfect medium coverage look, which is great for a busy day at the marketing office, plus it can totally last the night, which makes it great for work events or anything else I may be getting up to, which requires some sturdy coverage! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.

I was lucky to receive this as part of my Cult Beauty Summer Goody Bag, on a side note... oh my god it was amazing (see here) Anyhoo, I got this Becca Evermatte Poreless Primer which I'm currently obsessed by. Finally, a water based primer! I've always used silicone & oil base primers, but actually over half of my foundations are either water based or oil free. I've used some nice primers especially from Dermalogica, Laura Mercier and YSL to name a few, but in terms of actually keeping my make-up in place, I have genuinely not come across anything better. After moisturising this is the first thing I apply to start my beauty routine and it preps my skin perfectly for the day ahead. 

Also a more recent acquisition, but I love it nonetheless. Depending on what kind of look I'm going for on that day, I will either mix with my Clinique Moisture Surge to create a luminous teint for those no make-up days, or if I'm tanning I tend to mix it in with my Clinique Even Better Foundation to  bring it up a shade. It's also great for blending down your neck or around any pesky area's that you need to quickly cover up. We've all been there right?!

There has definitely been a surge of Clinique into both my skincare & make-up routines, which is surprising as I for some reason thought it wasn't for me. A few of my friends have found it too harsh on their skin, but personally my skin loves the stuff and being the skin-care/make-up junkie that I am, I'm not one to deny my skin of what it wants. Once I'm all prepped and primed I apply this with a buffing brush and it covers my skin perfectly! It has such a nice medium coverage, which makes it a good option for busy days at work. It's designed to combat hyper-pigmentation and deliver brighter skin, both immediately and over time and has an SPF15 oil free formula! 
Next up I use the Crayon De Sourcil, which is a semi permanent mineral brow pencil. The idea behind it is that it allows you to enhance the appearance of your brows by mimicking the appearance of tiny hairs for a natural-looking effect. The brow pencil itself contains cocoa butter, shea butter and bees wax to give your delicate skin a treat. It claims to be ‘semi permanent’ because it is transfer resistant and does not smudge. It has been my go to brow product for the past month, as it really does create flawless, structured brows that last!

I'm definitely a Chanel girl when it comes to my Mascara! I adore their Le Volume and Inimitable Mascara's. Whilst at Duty Free recently, I decided to try their new Dimensions De Chanel Mascara, which I'm really enjoying. It definitely does a bit of everything and gives my eyes the volume, length and the dimension that I need. It's also the best mascara I have used to layer! You can even add a coat on a few hours later and not have to worry about clumping or spider lashes.

I tend to go in and out of wearing eye-liner, but my current go to is the Kevin Aucoin Primatif in the shade Navy. It really makes my eyes pop without being too obvious. Sometimes I like to pop this on, especially if I'm working late for an event at work. It's a lovely transitional product to give yourself a little beauty boost! 
A super full coverage concealer, which is perfect for a long day in the marketing office. I would say this is a little thicker than I would usually like to wear, but it's honestly so good at perfecting the whole eye area, without looking overly cakey. It also keeps pesky dark circles at bay!

This product needs no introduction. It's just life. I adore this and can rely on it to keep me looking glowy, healthy and on top of my game throughout the day. It is looking pretty battered, but that just goes to show how much I love it. I litreally take it everywhere I go! 

Another staple from CT! This is my favourite everyday blush and I love how it combines both peach and pink tones to create a really natural glow. It's also pigmented enough to amp up your look.

Finally, on a day to day basis I like to go for a nudey pinky peach lip and the perfect way to achieve this for me personally, is by filling my lips in with the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil in the shade Pillow Talk. I also find this the easiest shade to use if I want to slightly overline my lips! I usually end up looking like a clown, when I try with the likes of soar.

Once I have filled my lips in with Pillow Talk, I apply a few swipes of Penelope Pink onto my lips, which is a completely wearable Pinky Nude, and I'm ready for the day ahead!


I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies, it feels good to get back to my blog again. Don't forget to check out my 6 week fitness plan below, if you're interested to follow my weight loss and toning journey.

Six Week Fitness Plan - The Celtic Manor Resort

Hello lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? I’m here today with an exciting (slightly daunting) personal post, which is going to be the start of what I have high hopes will be the return to the “old me”; someone who loved to exercise, but loved feeling good about myself and happy from within even more. Without going through a life story things haven’t been easy the past few years and stress, anxiety and struggling to sleep have definitely see my fitness routine go down the drain. I’ve always been a strong person, but for some reason instead of taking the option to try and burn my stress out in the gym, I decided to start eating more, drinking more and exercising less! Plus my marketing office is always full of delicious treats, and I do tend to over indulge in sweets, cake and copious amounts of black coffee on a stressful day. 
I would say that I started to loose my way fitness wise in late 2014, early 2015 and before that time I fluctuated between 7 ½ - 8 ½ stone. I definitely felt most comfortable over 8 stone though, but recently I have gone up a dress size and have lost signs of toning and generally just feel uncomfortable in myself. Between the ages of 16 – 19 I was asked to model for a London agency, FHM and was was involved in various beauty pageants. I never pursued any of those opportunities, mainly because I was too shy! However, there is no denying that those offers made me feel good about myself and that my fitness regime was working and I knew that my fitness and energy levels were good. I’ve definitely lost that confidence recently and my mission is to get the old me back! I'm definitley at a point where I need to make a change in my life and I think getting back into a fitness regime will help me with more than just shaping up. 
So, now my little ramble is out of the way… I can tell you a little more about my six week fitness plan at the Celtic Manor Resort* Having such a vast and versatile resort on my doorstep is a huge advantage and I actually used to attend the Forum Spa Gym before I even worked there! The Celtic Manor stands proud on the M4 corridor and really does have something for everyone. The six week plan (From £99) aims to get you heading back in the right direction and includes an induction, complimentary Tanita body report and regular consultations to ensure that you are comfortable and making good progress.

The Celtic Manor consists of two exclusive health clubs, which offer five star service, excellent benefits and a great line up of social events too. Both leisure clubs are fully equipped with leading fitness supplier Technogym, as well as the added benefit of a Wellness System, which allows members to have their own dedicated training programmed. To find out more information on their vast range of membership options, click here

Week 1: So, I'm week 1 into my six week fitness plan, which has mainly been a settling in period with an initial consultation and induction with my trainer Chris, as well as my Tanita Body Report. I must admit the Tanita Body Report definitely surprised me, but it was so interesting to see exactly what is going on in my body. My Metabolism has slowed right down and now is around 39 in age. Oh my god! but hey, I supposed you have to be brutally honest with yourself to really make progress. I also learnt that my body is quite dehydrated, which may be down to my excessive coffee addiction and the fact that over the last two years I have started to consume more alcohol. It may also be an indicator to why I feel quite sluggish all the time and why my mood can sometimes be quite low. 

I have been to the gym four times within the past week, as well as going to two spin classes. I also have a Personal Training session scheduled for next Wednesday with my trainer Chris (who is fantastic), which I will be writing about in my next update. I've definitley noticed an improvement, which I think is a combination of eating cleaner over the past two weeks and also excercising.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, which is slightly different for me! I will be posting an update during Week 3, where I hope I will be able to share more results with you. 

Lots of Love

My #Euro2016 Experience | Wales Vs Slovakia | Bordeaux


Hello My Lovelies!
Hope you're all good? I was hoping to post this a little sooner to be honest, but between one thing and another I haven't been able to get around to it. I was actually shocked that so many people wanted to see this post, so I decided to get my butt into gear and get this post ready. I honestly had the most fun/mental weekend ever at the Euro's (start of June) and after growing up in a football fanatic family and being engaged to an avid Liverpool, Barcelona and Wales fan it's safe to say I'm kinda a footie fanatic too. I've recently come back from Bordeaux, which is honestly such a beautiful City! However, It did feel slightly like a stag weekend ha ha! Even though the majority of people out there were men, everyone was so kind, fun and of course pretty drunk! It was all in good spirit where we were though. We met up with loads of Daniel's friend and stayed out late in the #Fanzone and the actual Wales game was something else. It's such a historic event for Wales and even though I didn't get to do my usual vacay things like (shopping, sunbathing you know that kinda stuff) I had four of the best days of my life, and I know it will be something I tell my children in the future too. We even ended up on a night out, walking one of our friends back in a City that was completely new to us, it was bloody fantastic though. However, I will be pestering Daniel for a beachy holiday soon though. Here are a few pictures from my Holiday and I'm thinking of doing a writing up a few more travel posts soon, as I've had quite a few questions about my trip to Dubai, as well as a few other places I have been very lucky to visit.




Overall, my #Euro2016 was far more than I expected and quite frankly I loved every second of it. Soaking up the atmosphere, pathetically trying to drink a pint and enjoying junk food day after day! It was just amazing. One night I even ended up with my wine in a pint glass, now that's classy. 

I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies! It's pretty different to my usual beauty posts, but hopefully it will give you a chance to see a different side of me and the other things I enjoy apart from purchasing copious amounts of lipstick & skincare! I'm hoping to add more to my #JewelJetSet series, as I've got loads to share and a few holiday plans in the making!

And to finish off C'mon Wales! 

Lots of Love

Updated Review | Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleanser

Hello lovelies!
Hope you're all well? I've been considering writing an updated review on the Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleanser for a while and to be honest I haven't done many of these. However, I have recently finished this cleanser and wanted to write about why I won't be re-purchasing this product, despite really liking the results. I definitely don't want to come across like I'm bashing this cleanser, as it's beautiful in many ways and I think Sunday Riley is a fantastic skincare brand, but at the same time I want to be honest about my experience with this particular cleansing balm, seeing as I'm a self confessed skincare Junkie. I hope this post is informative and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
The dark blue packaging and gold writing make this product look and feel extremely majestic before you even open the lid. You're greeted with a beautiful light blue product that has a faint Chocolate Orange type scent.It's definitely an exciting experience for anyone interested in skincare. The Cleansing Balm itself uses Sunday Riley's patented NV-5 Ageless Complex, which marries five traditional skincare ingredients (Including Moringa) with hi-tech processes, to maximise reparative and skin brightening properties.

Despite enjoying the product, I just can't push myself to repurchase it due to it's peculiar texture. I must admit I was expecting something similar to either the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, or maybe the Clinique Cleansing Balm. It's almost £50, so for that price I think the product needs to be pretty much on point to justify the price tag. However, I found the texture to be firm and grainy and not in a nice way. It does begin loosen up after 30-40 seconds(ish) but to be honest, I just feel like the texture really let this product down. I actually lost a lot of product by dropping it in the bath or down the sink, as it was to uneven to control. The texture is pretty much the only reason I won't be repurchasing, as apart from being a bit of a nightmare to handle, the results were lovely. Skin appears brighter, smoother and generally more healthy looking! 

Have you tried this product? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below. I was a little worried about posting this, as I do like this product, but I would struggle to recommend this at almost £50! It's a lot of money to spend on a skincare product that doesn't 100% deliver.

The White Company | Seychelles Signature Candle Review ❤

Hello my loves!
Hope you're all well? It's a drizzly Sunday, but they're perfect for blogging as I don't feel as guilty for not being outside and enjoying the sunshine. I definitely feel like I'm on a bit of a blogging roll at the moment and taking some time away has once again done me the world of good! I've also got tomorrow off, which is amazing as I really need a day to myself to sort a few plans out and catch up on e-mails. I've been meaning to write up a few candle reviews, so I thought I would start off with a candle, which is basically pure paradise! I hope you enjoy this review and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below. 

From the moment I first smelt this candle It was love. I was instantly transported from a shop floor to a tropical paradise (at least in my head) and it certainly didn't disappoint once lit either. I've been lucky to visit the Seychelles, and The White Company have perfectly captured the essence of an Indian Ocean island with this candle. The main notes of this candle are Bergamot, bright orange and amber, followed by warming notes of coconut, vanilla and almond. Seychelles has definitely become one of my favourite candle scents and it's a combination of a feel goods scent, mixed with relaxing notes of amber. It really does create that perfect sense of serenity and beauty, you can almost hear the waves gently rolling in... Each candle is filled in the UK using high quality mineral wax, which enables the candle to burn clean and evenly. With a burn time of just under 30 hours, this candle is the perfect treat or gift for a special friend or loved one. 

Overall, Seychelles is a beautiful candle that will give anyone the ultimate feel good factor! I'm due to re-order and I might even treat myself to the large version. I would love to know what candles you're loving right now lovelies?

Lots of Love

Monster Skincare & Beauty Haul | Cult Beauty, Clinique & Escentual ❤

Hello Beauties!
Hope you're all keeping well? I've been a busy bee and went on a rather indulgent shopping trip today to celebrate Daniel's first class hons in Mechanical Engineering, but now I'm happy to be sat down enjoying a glass of champagne with Daniel and my family whilst enjoying another great win for Wales in the Euros! I'm here with a sneak peek of my recent monster skincare & beauty haul, which was a total moment of indulgence. I'm hugely into my skincare and of course beauty, and I couldn't wait any longer to share my purchases with you lovelies. However, I will be doing more in-depth reviews on a lot of the products in this post, so keep checking back if you're interested to see how I get along. I hope you enjoy this Post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below!

So what exactly Did I purchase?
Cult Beauty are quite possibly the biggest enablers ever!! Their campaigns are always on point, super informative and more importantly their product selection is just out of this world. I did consider un-subscribing from their e-mails for a while just to stop the temptation, but they are just too good to resist #GuiltyPleasure. As most of you know I'm a complete skincare Junkie and after speaking with a Cult Beauty specialist, along with reading an amazing post from Caroline Hirons I decided that I needed some Kyrpis in my life! Now I'm not going to go all out in this post, as it totally needs one of it's own, but the two products I purchased were Moonlight Catalyst & Beauty Elixir 1000 Roses. I'm already blown away. I also purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Concealer which I've wanted for the longest time! The next day after making my order ABH released their new palettes on CB, so I will be checking them out soon! I don't think the eye palette for me, but the glow kit is 100% up my street. Not only did I get three amazing products, but I also qualified for the super amazing Summer Cult Beauty Goody Bag worth over £170!! Let me know if you would like to see a separate review on the Goody Bag?
I've been meaning to re-purchase the Clarins Water Comfort One Step Peach Cleanser for ages, as I've already got through two bottles of it. However, at £23 (Currently £18.45) it's pretty expensive for a cleansing water, so sometimes I just make do with other products I have waiting around to be used up. However, seeing as I was #FeelingSpendy I decided to treat myself to this fantastic product, which I either use alone in the morning, or follow it up with my Oskia Renaissance Gel for a more thorough morning cleanse. I obviously couldn't leave Essential without having a little browse around! I came across Vichy and their new masks, which all looked amazing (I have a thing for face masks) However, I went with the Quenching Mineral Mask, which only needs to be left on for 5 minutes to inject serious hydration to the skin. I haven't actually got anything that similar in my collection, so I'm excited to use this. 
Anyone who knows me well, or reads my blog will know skincare is a big deal for me for many reasons. I've always been lucky to have good skin, but more than anything I love having an in depth routine, as it really helps to relax and ease my anxiety. I also love trying new products and of course keeping my skin in tip top condition, which gives me so much more confidence than make-up these days. Anyhoo, I'm quite into Clinique at the moment, so I decided to purchase their Moisture Surge Gift set, as I already use the Moisture Surge Thirst Relief Treatment and love it! I also purchased their NEW online exclusive Sun-kissed Face Jelee Complexion Multitasker, which I'm hoping will be fab to mix in with moisturisers, foundations and anything else I can use it for! I also got a free men's skincare set, which I have given to Daniel. I'm desperately trying to get him into skincare, as I can't bare to see him wash his face with soap anymore!

I hope you've enjoyed this post my lovelies and I will be back soon with more in-depth reviews! Please let me know if there are any specific products you would like to know about?

Lots of Love
