Beauty Do’s and Don’ts I’ve Learnt In 2018

As tomorrow’s officially a start to a New Year, 2019 I thought it’d fun to share beauty tips, tricks and don’ts I discovered this year. Some I’ve known for years and got given a lesson in this year. Others have have been happy discoveries cancelling out the those lessons.

To listen to my inner voice reordering products aka when stock piling. Don’t stock pile products! So many times I’ve gone to reorder and a little voice has gone NO! Me being me I ignore it only for when I receive it add to the stockpile because you know, I might run out before another arrives or it’s out of stock and I run out. Usually a few weeks Continue reading “Beauty Do’s and Don’ts I’ve Learnt In 2018”

My Online Beauty And Cruelty Free Beauty Product Shopping Guide

Today I’m sharing how I shop online for beauty products, more specially cruelty free beauty products. I’m sure most of these are obvious but seeing how I buy most of my cosmetics online I thought it would be fun to share my tips. So lets get to it! 

When coming across a new brand the first thing I do is Google ‘X animal testing’. I came across this tip a few months ago as this way of asking rather than ‘does x test on animals’ brings a more definite yes/no answer.

Tarte Cosmetics International Delivery and Giving into NYX Cosmetics

A few weeks ago I found out by chance that Tarte Cosmetics now delivers direct to Spain. Not all products are eligible but most of their products are. Prices are a little less than brand equivalent in Sephora España and I was able to take advantage of their Independence Day free shipping which included free international shipping. Usually free international delivery qualifies on orders over €65. A major draw for me to them is that they are cruelty free with a few vegan products. 

I was curious how they were able to cosmetics ship to Spain without getting flagged in customs. From experience and maybe the law’s changed within the last 3 years, Spain doesn’t allow the import of make up. It’s touch and go if parcels clear custom inspections and if it’s courier sent, it’s more likely to get stuck/flagged. The way they got around it was having Continue reading “Tarte Cosmetics International Delivery and Giving into NYX Cosmetics”

Brush Egg

I have a confession. When I first saw the Brush Egg in Sephora about a year ago, I hadn’t clue what it was. I came across it by the checkout outs (Sephora and their mini products by the checkouts. Always they nearly always get me!) and all in came in was a cellophane wrapper with a bar code. No description. Nada, but something said you’ll use it, so get it. 

Thinking it was a manual exfoliator I put in the queue with the other manual facial exfoliator/make cleansing better Continue reading “Brush Egg”
