Keratin protein smoothing deep conditioner!

I picked this up in penneys/primark a few days ago. It's by a company called 'hask'. I mentioned some of their products in a mini haul post a while ago. Keratin protein is amazing for strengthening your hair and improving its condition. This would work wonder if you had dry or damaged hair. My hairs very dry so I couldn't wait to try it.  

It says on the back to only leave it on for 10 mins but I left it on for about 2 hours. The longer the better I reckon. It washed out really easily and my hair was so much easier to brush afterwards. My hair smelt gorgeous. After my hair dried, it was unbelievably smooth and soft. The appearance of my hair improved so much. It looked so glossy and shiny. It really seemed to improve the colour of my hair and bring it out more. I highly recommend this product and will definitely be picking up a few when I'm in penneys again! <3

Jacket- Penneys
Maxi dress- TX MAXX
Necklace-Forever 21

I thought I would include my face of the day as well. I'm wearing the eyeshadow chopper from my Naked 2 palette. Brown eyeshadows bring out blue eyes but the colour orange is actually the colour that brings out blue eyes most. Your obviously not going to wear orange eyeshadow but this colour is brill for bringing out my blue eyes as it has orange undertones. I'm wearing my soft coral lipstick by maybelline.
And of course my bare minerals foundation. Oh and I'm also wearing no. 7 mascara for sensitive eyes. I have reviews on all these products on my blog already so please check them out if you want! <3 I'd really appreciate it if you like my blog that you would follow me on bloglovin as I've just set it up. If you search for Rachelsblog295 in the search box I should come up! <3 I hope you enjoyed this post! <3

No. 7 stay perfect nail colour!

I picked up this baby pink nail polish at the no. 7 counter in boots. Sorry that it looks a bit messy on my nails in these pics I haven't got the steadiest hand. I like the colour on my nails but its very light. You need a few coats. It says on the back of the nail polish that it has quick drying ultra and a gloss finish. I suppose it does have a glossy appearance on my nails but its the same as every other nail polish really. It doesn't look any different on my nails as some of my other nail polishes. I can't tell you about the lasting power yet as I've only just put it on my nails. I hope it lasts a few days though. Have you tried any nail polishes from this range? <3

Amie spring clean cooling clay mask review!*

I recently heard about the brand Amie. It really interested me because they use all natural ingredients! I just tried this spring clean cooling clay mask. 

It says that it draws out dirt, preventing blemishes. As a sufferer of acne I thought this would be very helpful. I thought it smelt gorgeous. I couldn't think what the smell reminded me of but it smells just like green starburst! It's easier when you have something that smells nice whilst on your face. I spread it evenly on my face avoiding my lips and eyes. It spread very easily on my skin. I decided to relax for 10 to 15 mins with it on my face. 
I found it very cooling and refreshing on my skin. It felt lovely on my face. It didn't take long to get it off. I couldn't believe the instant results. My skin looked so much cleaner and fresher. My skin was unbelievably smooth and soft afterwards. It definitely drew out all the dirt that was beneath the skin. It gave such a glow to my skin. I highly recommend this product. I will definitely be buying the tube size of it! I hope it keeps my skin clear and blemish free.

You can check out their website here -

You can also check what they say about the face mask here - It's £1.50 for 3.

I can't wait to try more products from Amie. I really want to try their new leaf skin exfloiating polish.

Mini haul! <3

Here is another mini haul. I already have one like this on the blog if you want to check it out! <3 The following are pics of the things I bought. 

I bought these gladiator type sandals in penneys. They were only 13 euro so thats not too bad. They're perfect for the summer. I bought this bare minerals brush for 25 euro. I still hadn't bought the brush for the compact powder. I was just using the one that came with the loose powder. It's perfect for carrying around in your handbag. I love this maxi dress that I bought in swamp for 30 euro. I'll definitely be wearing this a lot. I picked up a few no. 7 things in boots. I got this lipgloss called 'coral kiss'. I'm loving coral lip products this summer. I picked up this eyeshadow which is a grey/sliver colour with purple undertones.  And last but but not least I picked up this t shirt in pennneys just because! ;) I hope you enjoyed seeing what I bought! <3 In this post I decided to show you pics of my shoes and bag for the debs that I meant to include in the debs preparations post. 
I hope you also check out my post showing pics from my debs! <3 

Tips for fake tanning!

If you are getting a spray tan or just applying fake tan yourself here are some tips to make sure that your tan turns out as best as it can. I decided to do this post because I got a spray tan for my debs last week. I got in done two days before my debs and I woke up the day before my debs and it was all brown and blotchy. I stupidly got sunburnt the week before and the tan didn't take to my skin as well then. I got there in the end though and my tan turned out okay thankfully! So here are my tips:

1.) DON'T GET SUNBURNT!!! believe me I'm talking from experience. Your skin gets really badly damaged and it can't take the tan.                                            

2.) MOISTURISE your skin. If you happen to sunburn your skin before the tan, the major advice that I was given is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! Use a rich moisturiser like the one pictured below.   

It's called cocoa butter formula by palmers. It contains vitamin E which is amazing for repairing your skin.                
 3.) EXFOLIATE! It's so important before you get a tan to exfoliate to get rid of all the dead skin cells.                                      

I hope you find these tips helpful and that your tan doesn't end up going as bad as mine did. If you have a special occasion coming up, whether it be a wedding, Debs, prom anything, just stay out of the sun. Your skin ends up peeling and the tan can't possible take to your skin. Have you any other tips for achieving the perfect fake tan? <3

Rimmel soft coral lipstick! <3

I bought this lipstick to wear my debs. Coral colour lipsticks go great with white dresses. I wanted something that didn't stand out too much. It's rimmel and the colour is '600 soft coral'. It has slight orange undertones to it. I found it very moisturising on the lips and it had a long lasting time. The only thing is when your putting it on your lips it has glitter particles which makes it feel like its drying on the lips. I didn't have to top it up much at all. I loved this lipstick. I'm a massive fan of rimmel lipsticks anyways! <3 Below is a pic of me wearing the lipstick. I loved the look of it on my lips! It only costs 7.95  euro which is not expensive at all. I'll definitely get a lot of wear out of it this summer! <3 


These are two outfits that I recently wore on night outs! Here are pics of the first one: 
The dress is from a local clothes shop and the necklace is from penneys. Here are pics of the second outfit: 
Skirt and cropped top are both from swamp. I'm wearing my necklace from penneys once again. I definitely get the wear of it anyways. I hope you liked my outfits! <3

My debs! <3

Here are some pics from my debs! <3 I absolutely loved my dress. I never dreamed of getting a white dress but when I seen it on the window and tried it on I fell in love with it! I had such a great time at my debs. I'm so sad that its all over. I hope you enjoyed seeing some pics from my debs! <3
