Hey there! For today’s post I will be reviewing the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Powder Foundation ... I know, me using a powder foundation! Who’d have thought it eh?

I recently had a bit of a splurge on makeup, most of it from NYX and the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop collection really stood out to me and I wanted to try everything. So I picked up the two Foundations, the liquid one and the powder one, and the loose setting powder. I do wanted to do a separate post reviewing the liquid foundation as that’s probably more of a ME product, but let’s see what I thought of the powder one first. I picked up the shade Alabaster which is actually the second lightest shade, but I like my foundations to give me a bit of colour so I went with this one. It’s got just the right undertone for my skin and it matches almost perfectly. I use a smaller brush first to pack on the powder and then I use a kabuki brush to just blend it out seamlessly. 

I usually end up an oily, sweaty mess by the end of the day when I wear liquid foundation, particularly in the summer, so a powder foundation should work wonders for my skin. I noticed that it felt a lot lighter on my skin,almost as if I didn’t have anything on it. I did get a couple of compliments about how much skin looked really clear, but they also didn’t know I had any makeup on it.
Powder foundations are particularly good for no makeup, makeup looks because they look super lightweight and give your skin a healthy bit of colour and coverage but don’t make you look cakey. I can’t wait to use this throughout the summer to not only feel less grim and sweaty, oily and not be able to tan through makeup but to also not get the sunglasses spots in your nose. WHAT A DREAM. If I’m looking to do a very full coverage look, then I use this to set my face as well and it’s almost like it gives even more coverage, not only just setting it. 

It did cost £15 which I do think is a little more pricey for a drugstore product, but I because I’m very happy with the way this foundation works and looks on my skin, I do think it’s worth the money. However, due to the fact I’m not necessarily crazy about powder foundations, I don’t know if I would repurchase. 

And there we have it, my thoughts on the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Powder Foundation. Thankyou so much for taking the time to read this post and I really hope you enjoyed it!! See you soon.
Until Next Time,

IT'S FRI-YAY!!! Happy Weekend guys and welcome to a new post. This one is in collaboration with the lovely Mercydes from mercydesmoore.wordpress.com and we are both going to be sharing our favourite eye shadow palettes for spring / summer.

So, I'm just now realizing that 5/6 of these palettes are from Revolution and like I knew I was obsessed with and loved the brand so much, but I didn't realize quite how much hahah.

I've actually done quite a few eye looks with these palettes so I've included them at the end of this post because I don't know about you, but I love seeing the looks other people have created.
Anyway, my first favourite palette is the Revolution x Imogenation palette, which I actually feel has been neglected these past few months or so because I have been trying out lots of other new ones, but this SCREAMS spring vibes to me. Particularly the left side of the palette as the right side could be considered more autumnal. The two shades that always stand out to me are Butterfly and You Know (the blue and the red) and you can bet your life that these will be making any appearances in my makeup routine over the coming months. Not only does this palette have a number of transition shades and my fave oranges, it's also so versatile and you can make lots of different looks including smokey eyes, pop of colour, cut crease etc etc. It kinda goes without saying as it is from Revolution, but the colour payoff is insane and they're so creamy and blendable ... AND as well as all of this it has a black and a white (shimmery white) too! 

The Mermaid Hearts palette is a very new fave of mine, but I know you're all going to love this one too. I don't know about you, but recently blue has just been THE colour, it's everywhere, everyone's loving it, I'm loving it and this palette is just perfect for blue / teal looks. Although it's a very blue / teal palette, it's still really versatile with the mix of shimmer and matte shadows, the light and dark shades, transition shades, blues, yellow, pinks ... I really think this will be a summer holiday staple.

This Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette has been on my wish list for so long and a few months ago I decided to treat myself to it. The lighter green and shimmery yellow are probably the more spring vibe shadows in this palette, but green is the type of colour that can be used anytime of the year, whether it’s the coldest of winters during the Christmas season or you’re on the way to a beach club. I can’t wait to have more of a play with this palette.

I think you can probably tell by now that during the spring / summer months my go-to shadows are yellows, pinks, oranges and just about anything with a shimmer. So obviously the Revolution Peanut Butter palette couldn’t be left out of this post. Not only does this have pretty pastel colours but when a palette has a black AND a white, you just know that it’ll be a go-to for me, whatever time of year it is. I’m eyeing up the yellow and the shimmery purple for a new look?👀
I've been wanting an all matte palette and a really colourful palette for a while now, so when I saw that Revolution had the Reloaded Mysterious Mattes, I was all over it. These reloaded palettes are honestly something else and this one in particular has all those bright, pastel shades that are a STAPLE for the spring and summer. Again, the pigment of these shadows puts a lot of other brands to shame and for £4 ... FOUR FREAKIN' POUNDS, are you joking?  I used this palette for the *bottom left* and some of the *top right* look that you can see below.

My last favourite S/S eye shadow palette is the Revolution Chocolate Easter Egg and the look I created with this one is the *middle left* look. These iridescent, almost foil like shadows are honestly to die for and the pay off from these is a JOKE for a £5 palette. Well you can see for yourself in the look I did. The yellow highlight is SCREAMING at me and I can see this as both a cheekbone and inner corner highlight when I've got a tan!! I did do a full review on these palettes, so if you would like to read that where I go into more depth about the palette, then please click here.




Thankyou so much for taking the time to read this post, I really hope you enjoyed reading about my fave s/s eye palettes. Don't forget to check out Mercydes' post here and I will see you soon with a new post!

I should probably start by saying sorry for not posting for a few weeks, I ended up taking a short, unplanned break from blogging  due to my lack of motivation and inspiration. I will probably do a post soon to just get some things off of my chest, a bit like a diary, just of where I'm at with blogging. However, welcome back to my blog or if this is the first time you're stumbling across it, then hey I'm Luci. 


For today's post, yep you guessed it, I will be sharing my monthly favourites with you all and my god am I excited about these products this month! Even though I've been on a bit of a spending ban and haven't spent a penny on makeup since before payday, I still have many, many of my new and previously loved faves to share with you. So, I hope you enjoy!

My first favourite this month is the Revolution Pink Clay Detoxifying Mask and my skin has been absolutely loving this. I’ve not been so good with my skincare routine lately and face masks have been the last thing I’ve wanted to do (sounds so lazy haha!), so you could say my skin was in need of some TLC. My skin has been super oily lately and the description of it said that it helps to absorb oils but also uses witch hazel and this really helped to clear up my redness. As well as making my makeup stay on longer because I’ve not been an oily sweaty mess haha. 

The Revolution Rose Gold Highlighter is still very new to my collection but I had an instant obsession with it from the first swatch. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I absolutely love shimmer blushes (especially in the summer) and with the pink tone this one has this works as both a highlight and a blush. I don’t always use this on the apples of my cheeks but, however I wear it, I absolutely love it. It’s very smooth, almost creamy (although it is powder) and it’s very pigmented so you don’t have to cake up the powder on the skin. I like to bounce my beauty blender over the top of it and it makes it sink into the skin, without giving off that powder look. I can’t recommend this enough and it only costed me £1.20 in the sale!!

Next up is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cairo. After using Abu Dhabi and Athens before, I think I’ve found my perfect nude with this one. I did find Abu Dhabi to be too brown and Athens to be a bit too orangey ish, however this ones not to brown or orange and I haven’t been able to stop using it. I really like how these are very affordable, pigmented, smooth and very creamy. They also don’t have the dry matte feeling and it doesn’t even feel like you have anything on your lips.

And those were my favourites for the month of April. I really hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you soon with another one!!

April Favourites!

Hello there, welcome to a new post. I recently made a Revolution beauty order and they had a deal that if  you spent £30 you'd get a free Mystery Bag, so obviously I had to spend £30 didn't I? I love doing unboxing posts, as I'm sure you've seen my Birchbox opening series, but I don't get to do them that often so this is the perfect opportunity to do so and I hope you enjoy.
As you can see above, these are all the products that came in the mystery bag this time. I really love the selection of different products they have given in this bag, because let's be honest you can never have too many eye shadow palettes and we're always gonna need a makeup applicator! 
First up are the Unicorn Tears silicone makeup applicators and I have been waiting soo long to try one of these. I am going to do a full review on these so bare with me, but I actually do really like the application. One of the downfalls for me though, is that the pink from one of the applicators did come out onto my skin making it look like I was applying a pink foundation. I do reckon that after a few uses that it should wash off any excess colour ... but we will see.
Next up is the Mermaid Hearts palette and I actually hadn’t even heard of or seen this palette before getting it. I’ve only used this once but in absolutely loving it. The colours are insane, they’re really smooth and blendable and they’re also very pigmented. This palette is going to be so good for summer and I can’t wait to create more looks with it. If you would like to see the look I share using this palette, you can check it out on my instagram @lucibarkerblog.
I have seen the Lip Lavas before and I’ve been really looking forward to trying them out. From first impressions, this colour doesn’t look like a bit of me, but I’ll deffo try it out. It does come out a little see through and not completely opaque, but I think this is good as it makes it a bit more subtle and not as hard with such a bold colour.
This bag also came with another eye palette and this one is just as good. This one is called the Parent Advisory palette and this is such a good palette for neutral looks and smokey eyes, as well as pop of colour looks as these blue shades look incredible. These shadows are also very pigmented and it does have a mixture of shimmers and mattes which makes it really versatile and perfect for travelling / on the go too!!

Hey and welcome to today's post, which is particularly exciting because it's a collab with one of my besties Alix from www.alixkate.co.uk. Today, we will both be sharing our Easter inspired makeup looks and I hope you enjoy. Don't forget to check out Alix's post here and she also has a YouTube channel which is makeupwithalixkate. Also, if you've come over from Alix's blog, welcome my name is Luci and I really hope you enjoy reading my blog!

The Products!

Smashbox Under Eye Primer
I used to use this as an eye primer for a good year or so and absolutely loved using it but I started using lots of other products and never went back to it. I decided to try it out again for this look and I love how light and blendable it is and it doesn't cause creasing, it just hydrates the eyes for makeup.

Revolution Marvelous Mattes Palette
I've been using this palette so much since I bought it and I am absolutely loving it. It's all bright matte shades and is perfect for all sorts of looks. I can't wait to create more looks with this palette. I used the Pastel Blue and Dark Purple shade and blended the edges with the more pale yellow. For the inner corner I used the highlight from the Revolution Flamingo Easter Egg Palette.

NYX Vivid Brights Eye Liner in Halo
This yellow eye liner was really hard to apply as I found the applicator to be a little to flimsy to get an accurate wing, however I think it worked out pretty well. The only fault I have with this liner is that it cracks so easily and after it's dried it doesn't look too good. Thankfully you can't see it too much in this photo but deffo not one I would recommend. The white liner was just a white eye liner pen from eBay.

No7 360 Mascara
To finish off the eyes I used the new No7 360 Mascara and some cheap lashes from eBay. As you can tell they're a little bit big and long for my eyes but if you would like to check them out you can click here.

Chella Taupe Brow Cream
Recently I have absolutely been loving this brow product and it's become my go-to. I cannot recommend it enough and even though the shade is taupe, it does work really well with my brow colour.

The Look!
Thankyou so much for taking the time to read this post. This look didn't come out as good as I could've hope because that yellow eye liner was PLAYING me and it was much harder to do the dots than I thought. But, I really liked the idea I had and I hope you liked the way it turned out!

 As always thankyou so much to Alix for collabing with me, I can't wait to see the look you have created.

I’m back today with post number 5 of my makeup sponge reviewing series and I always get so excited to try out new makeup sponges. I came across this Revolution Precision Sponge when I was looking in the Revolution beauty website and I decided to try it out and then let you all know my thoughts ... especially as it was (and still is) in the sale for £1.50 from £5. If you would like to check out my previous posts in the series then you can click here.

Usually it takes me at least a few uses to determine whether I actually do like a makeup sponge or not, but with this one it was more obvious in the first use whether I did or not ... obviously I'm going to save that info until the end or that would be a very short review wouldn't it? haha.

Let's start off with talking about the shape, because I think the shape of a makeup sponge really helps with different areas of the shape and can really make or break the sponge and how it applies makeup. One side of this sponge is very similar to the original Beauty Blender, however the other side is much thinner and goes into a point. This can be seen as a good thing because it's not only the perfect size to get around the eyes, but it's also really good for getting a sharp edge when baking under contour. I always like my sponges to be more pointed at the top to make it easy to blend hard to reach and smaller areas, but I think a sponge does need either a flat edge or a more rounded edge to make it easier to blend out the rest of the base makeup. I did find it quite difficult to blend the rest of the face out mainly because I felt that the tips of the sponge moved the product rather than bouncing it in and this let to a very streaky application ... no matter how much I blended.

I had such high hopes for this sponge in the beginning, one because it's from easily my favourite makeup brand Revolution and that when I damped it, it did grow which usually means that it's going to be a bit more squishy and this gives it more of a bounce when blending. Well that seemed to be the case with all the makeup sponges that I have tried before. However, although the sponge did grow in size and felt a little bit softer, it did still have a stiffness to it and that lead to the products becoming really patchy and streaky on my skin. I think if it did have more of a rounded edge on the bottom that it could have helped a bit with the blending process.


Overall, I'm not as pleased with this sponge as I have been in previous posts in this series or as much as I had hoped to be, however if you do like more of a stiff sponge, instead of a bouncy and squidgy ones, then this could be right up your street. A bonus for me is the more pointed tip as this did help with blending around the eyes and the nose. This sponge is definitely on the cheaper side compared to many others on the market, at just £5. It's currently in the sale though so I don't if thats because they're discontinuing it or maybe they might be bringing a new one out, you never know!

Thankyou so much for taking the time to read this post and I hope you're enjoying the come back of this series. If there is a particular sponge that you would like me to try out and let you know my thoughts on, then please let me know in the description below.

Until Next Time,

Revolution Precision Makeup Sponge Review | #5

Hi there, happy Saturday and welcome to a new post on my blog. For today's post I will be unboxing Aprils Box with you all and sharing my thoughts on it. How is it already that time of the month again, time is going so quickly!!

So, the first product that I pulled out of the box was the Human+Kind Body Souffle. I hadn't actually heard of this brand before, but I'm always on the look out for new skincare products and seeing how good they work for my skin. I have only used this a couple of times since getting the box, but it does smell really nice, is lightweight and doesn't have the greasy feel. I can already feel that my elbows are feeling less dry and I will continue to use this hoping that it really stops my elbows being so dry all the time.

The next item in the box this month is the mini version of Benefits Porefessional Primer. This used to be a staple in my makeup collection a few years ago, especially when I first started getting into makeup. It's one of those highly hyped about product in the beauty industry and is deffo worth the money, in my opinion. I haven't used this in such a long time, since I ran out a year or so ago, and I'm very excited to try it out again. 

Next up are the Diamond Eye under eye masks. Skincare is one of those things that I go all out for and I feel like under eye masks are not a step that can be skipped in a skincare routine, especially in mine. (My opinion anyway). I went online and read some reviews about this and they all seem really positive and from the properties that it claims to have, including anti-ageing, re-hydrating and smoothing, this sounds right up my street and I cannot wait to try them. They also say that they’re made with real diamond (umm not quite sure about this one haha) and caffeine extracts, which I guess is good for getting rid of under eye circles. 

Lastly, is the product I’m probably most excited about and that it the Estate Dew Me Baked Highlighter. I’m sure you all know how much I love my highlighters and after swatching this one I am very impressed. It’s very pigmented, it has a nice glow to it but doesn’t have that glittery look that I really don’t like, and it doesn’t give that powdery look that just sits in top of the skin (if that makes any sense). I’m sure you’ll all see me talking about this a lot in the future because I can tell I’m going to love it!!!



Overall, I'm not that over the moon with this months box. Although I did receive a few products that I do like, I feel like it was a bit of a let down to only receive 4 products in this box. Don't get me wrong, I do really like the products I did get, but I do think that compared to other beauty subscription box companies, that they don't seem as good. Especially not as good in recent boxes as I found the first couple of months after joining Birchbox. I've seen unboxing of other subscription boxes and people seem to forever be pulling out new items from it. I think I may try out a new subscription box for next month, so if you have any recommendations for ones to try then please let me know in the comments below!

Until Next Time,

Birchbox Unboxing | April 2019.

Hi there, happy Saturday and welcome to a new post on my blog. For today's post I will be unboxing Aprils Box with you all and sharing my thoughts on it. How is it already that time of the month again, time is going so quickly!!

And H E L L O A P R I L! I always get so excited to share to share my favourites with you every month and this one is no exception. I have really been using lots of new products over the past few months and I’ve found some real good products, a lot of them are cheap and drugstore as well.

My first favourite is No7 Stay Perfect Foundation in the shade Calico. This used to be my go-to favourite foundation for so many years, especially when I first started wearing makeup everyday and after finding many other faves and forgetting about this one, I decided to try it out again to see if it was still one of my all times faves. I really like how perfectly this matches my skin (I got matched years ago), it’s very light weight but also has good coverage and it lasts really well on the skin, without going oily or patchy etc. I couldn’t recommend this Foundations to you enough and at such a great price too, it’s deffo worth a try!!

Let’s talk about the Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette which I had my eye on for such a long time, but didn’t think I would actually use. However, recently I have really been experimenting with makeup and trying new types of looks, rather than my basic overused orange / warm smokey eye. A couple of months ago, whilst I was on a delayed train, I decided to use my spare time wisely (well I think it’s wisely anyway haha!) I’ve only used this once but I really like the way the look turned out and I can’t wait to play around with it some more. The palette details at £25 which does seem a little pricey for a small palette with 9 shadows, but I do think the quality of the shadows and the pigment in them is really good so for me I’d say it’s worth it ... especially for a luxury product!

Last month, or maybe the month before, in my Birchbox I received this Chella Brow Pomade which has very quickly become my go-to and I absolutely love it. I did say in my Unboxing post that I thought the shade Taupe may be too light, but it’s actually the perfect colour for me. It comes with an angled brow brush one end and the pomade in the other, this isn’t only handy for every day use but for travelling as well. This retails at $26 which does seem quite pricey but I just know that I’ll be stocking up whenever I’ve finished a tube of this!!

Next up is the Colab Dry Shampoo which I picked up from Pretty Little Thing. I decided to pick this up just because I was in desperate need of a dry shampoo and I was ordering off of PLT anyway. I knew this would come next day and it was also fairly cheap at £3.50 so I just added it to my basket. I’m so fussy when it comes to dry shampoos because normal ones show up in my brown hair and brunette dry shampoos just leave it feeling dirty. When I saw that this said it was invisible, I thought it would be the best bet for me. I really love the way this smells. Although it does go a little bit grey at first, it blends out easily and you wouldn’t even know you’ve got it in your hair!!

The I Heart Revolution Flamingo Easter Egg palette is still very new to my collection but it’s still easily a new revolution fave for me. I’m sure you all know by now that I seem to love every product revolution come out with and that’s because they’re such good quality and really well priced. I’m not going to say too much about this one because I just published a review on each of the Easter Egg palettes last week and you can read this one here.

The Revolution Hydraboost Moisturiser is also very new to my collection ... you may have seen me mention it in a previous haul post ... and it definitely lived up to expectations. I heard so many good things about Revolution Skincare products so I was very excited to try this out. I love using more gel based moisturisers because they sink into the skin rather than sitting on top of it and looking greasy like a lot of cream based moisturisers do. I really like how hydrating this is, and also how little of the product you actually have to use each time and this means that this lasts a little longer than any of my other moisturisers.

My last favourite for the month of March is the Obsessions Dewy Fix Setting Spray. I never actually know whether it’s the setting spray or the primer that helps with the longevity of my makeup, or even both, but I still couldn’t miss out this important step. I have combination skin and it does get quite oily throughout the day, meaning that I have to use a whole lot of powder to make sure that it stays matte for as long as possible, but this can lead to my skin feeling really dry and also having the products stick to my dry patches. So I like to use a little, or a lot, of this to take away that powdery look and feel. I really like this one because it gives a natural glow to the skin, without it being to oily for me, its really refreshing and it’s also so much cheaper than my ultimate fave which is MAC fix+.

Until Next Time,

Hey there, I hope you’re all having a good day! If you didn’t know Revolution recently came out with new Easter Egg and Donut Palettes and as they looked so good I thought I would pick up some of the Easter egg ones to try out. This may or may not have been an impulse buy almost purely because of the packaging, but is me we’re talking about so what’s new? Also, just before I do get into reviewing these products, I did just want to let you know that I have an IG account for my blog where I share photos of products, makeup looks and more. So if you would like to check them out, I am over at @lucibarkerblog

I picked up the Flamingo, Chocolate and Candy Palettes because these looked like the would be the ones I would most likely use and they also have a few shades in them which I knew I would be able to experiment and play with. 
As with every other Revolution product, these palettes are such good quality, the shadows are very pigmented and I love this Easter egg idea. I think the only downfall (if that’s the right way to describe it) for me is that I probably wouldn’t use the yellow highlight shade in the Choocolate palette. But I could seem myself using it as an inner corner highlight or as a shimmer lid colour for a cut crease / spotlight eye.

These palettes retail at just £5 each and they can be purchased on revolutionbeauty.com and Superdrug. I think £5 is such a good price for 5 shadows and 2 highlights 



Here are a few swatches from the palettes and they're done using just one swipe of the products. So as you can see, they're very pigmented and they're really smooth and easy to blend as well.

There is also one other Easter Egg palette in this collection which is called Chick and this one is more of a spring kinda palette with yellow, orange and burgundy. The highlight shades in this palette are absolutely to die for and I may need to get that one particularly just for the highlighters, but saying that one of them does look a little dark ... with a tan however, I will deffo use it.

Just below you can see a couple of the looks that I have created using the palettes so far and I really like the way they both turned out. These palettes are so versatile and you can create a number of looks, whether you're using each palette individually or all together. (Excuse the lash on the left, it was too long for my eye haha!)

Some of the looks I created using these palettes!

'Another haul?' You might be thinking. I was going to include these Revolution Skincare products in my previous haul, but I wanted to talk more in depth about them and also review them at the same time. If you've read my blog before, you'll know that I absolutely LOVE Revolution products, but I just hadn't tried any of their skincare products yet. A few weeks ago, I saw that they had release the new Hydrating Essence Sprays and I'd just ran out of my Mario Badescu Facial Spray and needed a new one, so how about that for timing eh?

The first product I picked up was the Hydration Boost Moisturiser. I have had my eye on this for quite a while due to hearing lots of good things about it and I finally decided to pick it up this time. I love using gel creams, because they work really well with my skin and as they're gel based they sink into the skin easily, without making you look or feel oily/greasy. For someone with combination skin, this works perfectly because it doesn't add any extra oils to my oily areas, but still re-hydrates the dry patches. The ingredients also include Hyaluronic Acid which works to re-hydrate dry, dull skin and is also really good for fine lines and wrinkles. For just £8 you get a decent 50ml pot of product and because a little goes a long way, this will last a decent amount of time. I would personally compare it to the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Berry Jelly Moisturiser, which I'm sure you've all seen me talk about many times on my blog.
I then came across the 2% Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum, which I didn't actually know they did, but I swear by Hyaluronic Acid (you can probably tell by now anyway!) and also serums are really good to add to moisturisers so I thought I'd try it out. Serums are really good to put on overnight because it gives it time to sink into the skin and really work its magic! I just mix this with my moisturiser and BAM it get's to work on my skin. This is just 2% Hyaluronic Acid, which is a decent amount because obviously a high amount of acid directly on your face wouldn't be a good thing, I would've thought anyway. I believe you can also get a 5% serum as well.

I stumbled across the Hyaluronic Hydrating Essence Spray on Instagram, when it was first released and as I was in need of a new facial spray it just seemed like the perfect time to try this one. I didn't actually realize how much I actually use Hyaluronic acid, but there's that. I find facial sprays perfect as they're really hydrating and refreshing and this one also smells of grapefruit and it's such a lovely scent.

I  also received the gold elixir as a free sample, I believe you get this when you spent £20 on the Revolution Beauty website and that deal is still currently on at the time of me writing this post. This product is like a mix of an oil and a serum, and it even has gold flakes in it which are supposed to brighten the skin ... how fancy?! I use this at night to give me glowing, radiant skin in the morning and it does say that this can be mixed with your foundation too!!

Also, can I just add that all these products are cruelty free and vegan, just another reason why Revolution is one of or if not my FAVOURITE beauty brands out there! I am very happy with all of the products I got and my skin is looking and feeling much better in just a week.

Until Next Time,

I believe you can also get a 5% serum as well.

I stumbled across the Hyaluronic Hydrating Essence Spray on Instagram, when it was first released and as I was in need of a new facial spray it just seemed like the perfect time to try this one. I didn't actually realize how much I actually use Hyaluronic acid, but there's that. I find facial sprays perfect as they're really hydrating and refreshing and this one also smells of grapefruit and it's such a lovely scent.

I  also received the gold elixir as a free sample, I believe you get this when you spent £20 on the Revolution Beauty website and that deal is still currently on at the time of me writing this post. This product is like a mix of an oil and a serum, and it even has gold flakes in it which are supposed to brighten the skin ... how fancy?! I use this at night to give me glowing, radiant skin in the morning and it does say that this can be mixed with your foundation too!!

Also, can I just add that all these products are cruelty free and vegan, just another reason why Revolution is one of or if not my FAVOURITE beauty brands out there! I am very happy with all of the products I got and my skin is looking and feeling much better in just a week.

Until Next Time,
