I'm not really one to go for blushers, but I thought I would give this one a try. This was a free gift after spending £5 on the brand Seventeen, in Boots. So, why would I not try it out?

First thing I have to say is that this blusher is such a natural looking tone. The shade I have is called 'The Cheek Of It'. The main reason that I usually avoid blusher is because I don't really like the blushed cheeks look. I remember the disasters I had with them when I was younger. I thought I looked good, but realistically I looked like I was constantly over-heated or embarrassed. It just wasn't a good look, as you can imagine. I don't think you can go over-the-top as such with this blusher because it is so natural looking. I mean, of course you can add far too much on, but if you accidentally put slightly too much on, it's easy to blend in and it is not the end of the world. I think it is the perfect blusher because it comes with a stamp which you just stamp onto your cheek. It only applies a bit of blush powder per stamp, so you would have to continually stamp to add too much.

SEVENTEEN CHEEK STAMP BLUSH REVIEW - THE CHEEK OF IT

When it comes to fashion, my favourite time of the year is autumn. The colours are so warm, and the clothes are so comfortable and cosy. I love being able to layer clothes, as you can add your own spin on fashion, and most of all, I love to see what everyone else is wearing. I just love the different styles in autumn. I am definitely a bit of a people-watcher - we all do it, right? I always find myself walking around, watching people walk past me in really warm-looking layers. I always get inspiration from what other people wear, especially those who are a bit more extravagant? I guess that's a way to put it.

As always, I have been constantly looking around in the shops for things I want to buy and I save the web pages to my bookmarks page ready for a wish list. So here are a few bits I have collected in my wish list.

Dorothy Perkins Metallic Stripe Roll Neck Jersey Top
I have found a new love for roll neck tops. They are so comfortable and I absolutely love pairing them with an up-do hairstyle and a sophisticated looking coat. I love the casual but sophisticated look. Add a red lip and you've got a look everyone will associate with autumn.

Dorothy Perkins Tan Faux Suede Bonded Biker Jacket
I absolutely adore this jacket and I'm having to persuade myself to not buy it, everyday. The fact I can get 20% off isn't helping me to be good! It looks so soft and cosy, and of course it's the perfect shade for autumn. It would go so well with everything on this wish list too, I'll cave soon I am sure.

As much as we all wish summer wasn't disappearing so fast, I think we are all secretly excited about autumn. For anyone like me, being able to pull out my dark berry lipsticks is something I have been waiting for for a long time. I love a berry lip in the autumn, but it is definitely a seasonal thing, it doesn't work in the summer.

The Tea Tree range has become a very popular range in The Body Shop recently. I bought my first Tea Tree products (the mask and face wash) due to recommendation from a member of staff at The Body Shop. I requested a product to help with spot prone and blemished skin, and she immediately recommended the Tea Tree range to me. I am so glad she did because the Tea Tree aroma is so refreshing and the products are amazing. I picked up those two products primarily because I knew I would use them whether I actually saw benefits from them or not. I use face wash and masks on a daily and weekly basis.


I expanded my collection of this range a few weeks back as I had seen brilliant changes since using the first two products I bought. This time I bought the Body Wash and the Skin Clearing Lotion. I decided upon these two products because I wanted to see if the Body Wash would help to clear some blemishes I have on other parts of my body and I wanted to try the Skin Clearing Lotion to attempt to get rid of scars and spots I have on my face. I have always had quite easily scarred skin which means that most spots I get turn into scars which does get me down quite a bit. However, it's nothing makeup can't cover up.

A few weeks ago, I bought these two stunning products from The Body Shop. These are the Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream and the Aloe Soothing Day Cream. They are the perfect moisturising duo to cover you and your skincare 24/7. They both have their own benefits which make them a perfect duo. I love the Body Shop as you can probably tell from my multiple posts about their products, and once again, they haven't let me down.


For a little while now, I have been using the Nivea Night Cream, but I decided to buy the new Vitamin E Night Cream after running out of the Nivea one. I have always been a fan of the vitamin E range as it has always been my go-to range for makeup remover and hand cream due to their moisturising benefits. Since buying the night cream, I have used it every night, along with a few other products (also in the vitamin E range) and in the few weeks I have had to try it out, I have seen a small change in my skin which I wasn't expecting quite so fast. I usually suffer with quite dry skin on my nose area, but this night cream has helped a lot to keep it moisturised and in the perfect condition.

I usually only apply this product straight before bed as it is quite an oily moisturiser. I expected it to be quite oily as it is a night cream which requires a lot of moisture. I am not a big fan of oily mositurisers on my face and I tend to play around with my face when I do have it on. So, I realised that it was better to apply it straight before bed. I also use a serum from the Vitamin E range which I will also review soon, but I only really use that on my under-eyes. The Vitamin E Night Cream is a product I would recommend for dry skin but I would avoid it if you have oily skin, as it may make it worse.

The Aloe Soothing Day Cream is again, a new favourite product of mine. The name describes it so well. It is a really cooling and soothing moisturiser which I love to apply a small amount of as soon as I get out of bed in the morning. It really helps to wake my skin up in the morning, This product is ideal for sensitive skin which doesn't surprise me as it is a really soft and subtle cream. It doesn't have a strong scent which will help with those who's skin doesn't react well to strong fragrances. It really helps to regenerate my dull looking skin and add a bit of shine to it, making it look a lot healthier.


I definitely think that these two products have together really helped to keep my skin hydrated. I have always had trouble with dry skin on my nose, but this has helped a lot to change that. My makeup also sits a lot better around my nose area now too which is great! As it has only been two weeks, I am still hoping to see a few more changes. I will definitely continue to use these products and I am almost definitely going to repurchase these products once I run out. However, I can already tell that they are going to be very long-lasting products.

Have you tried any of these products?


P.s. I will be changing my blogging schedule as of today. I am starting college and I want to be able to dedicate the majority of my time to studying and working towards my potential. I will only be posting once or twice a week. Definitely every Sunday and hopefully one Wednesday a month. Wednesday as well, when I am able to. Thank you,
