Five Products to Help You Kick Start the New Year


Happy Monday guys!

I know I blogged last week but I totally mind blanked and forgot to mention I have a brand new blog design. What do you guys think of it? I was getting bored of my old layout as I had it for two years straight. This one is a lot more streamlined and requires less updates. I thought New Year, new blog design…

So now that 2017 is finally upon us, I have a few products I’ve been loving recently that I think may help you to kick start the New Year. I chose a selection of beauty, haircare and skincare products to ensure you find at least one suitable product worth trying out.

LQ Liquid Health Supplements

It’s no secret that the start of a New Year is all about making goals, resolutions and promises you simply cannot keep. So instead of creating a ridiculously insane diet, try introducing some food supplements to your diet. I’m no stranger to food supplements, I’m severely deficient in vitamin D so I take vitamin D tablets and I’m currently drinking nurishments to increase my calorie in-take, as I was very ill back in December. Now I’ve added a new addition to my line of supplements called LQ Liquid Health. A food supplement, which contains marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, resveratrol, silicon, selenmium and vitamins. I know what you’re thinking….why on earth are you drinking acid and silicon, isn’t that harmful? Don’t worry as all the ingredients are 100% safe, it’s the silicon found in your hair, skin and nails not the silicon found in Pamela Anderson’s breasts. If you think you already have perfect skin, nails and hair then don’t worry because they have a whole range of products targeting other areas of the body such as joint care and heart care. What surprised me most about this product is the liquid formula. I was expecting solid tablets, so this was quite a shock for me and I was very anxious about the possible taste. Luckily it tastes very sweet and has a scent of fresh berries making it a guaranteed hit for everyone.

Eylure Luxe Eyelashes

Introducing Eylure’s brand new collection of luxe eyelashes. I’m not a daily eyelash wearer (for several reasons) a. who has the bloody time to stick false eyelashes on your face 7 days a week? b. fortunately I have naturally long eyelashes. However on certain days of the week when I want to look and feel extra glam (filming YouTube videos, photoshoots, going to events) I do love to wear a full set of eyelashes. The new luxe collection are synthetic, cruelty free and give a real mink effect. My favourite is the cameo style as they’re ¾ lashes, which elongates your eyes, making you look a little more sultry.

Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours

We all know how crazy the liquid lipstick trend was last year and it’s set to get even bigger this year so I’m starting the New Year with 4 new additions to my collection, this time it’s from Revlon’s new Ultra HD Matte Lip Colours. A collection of 7 lightweight, high-definition matte lip colours. Unlike all the other liquid lipsticks I’ve tried, surprisingly these lip colours aren’t as drying as other formulas, plus it actually feels soft and velvety on your lips. Be warned though, the colours are extremely bright! So bright that I have to line my lips with a dark brown shade before applying these colours. Overall a nice high-street alternative to the higher priced liquid lipsticks.

Phyto Haircare

You may or may not be familiar with Phyto haircare, it’s a botanical haircare brand made from plant extracts, not only is it an amazing haircare brand that caters for all hair types, it’s also an ethical brand which puts environmental awareness at the forefront. The Phytoapaisant shampoo is lightweight and cleans the hair really well but you have to use a lot of the product to create suds, which isn’t the most practical as the bottle is so small. My shampoo is almost finished and I’ve only used it 3 times. The Phytokeratine Extreme Cream is a brilliant leave-in conditioner, which I use to apply on my damp hair before blow-drying. It leaves my hair nourished and feeling silky soft. Finally I’ve been using the Phytopolleine Scalp Treatment regularly throughout the week, whenever I feel my scalp getting a little dry. For anyone with relaxed hair, you know exactly what I’m talking about, dry, flaky scalp is never a good look so this scalp treatment should be an essential part of your haircare routine. The Phyto range is suitable for all hair types but it’s refreshing to see they haven’t ignored afro hair like many other haircare brands and have even created a specific range for relaxed hair. Definitely one to try!


Now this is a brand that I can guarantee you’re all very familiar with and if you’re not then where have you been? It’s certainly not new to me, in-fact I’ve been using Femfresh for as long as I can remember. However I was pleasantly surprised to discover how many products they now have! Not only do they have the essential daily intimate wash, they also offer wipes, deodorants, body wash and even mini sized travel products too. I’m sure you all want to start a fresh new year and there’s no better way to do this than with Femfresh products. Due to it’s gentle, caring and PH balanced ingredients, Femfresh is the perfect option to use on your intimate skin. My top picks are the daily intimate wash (of course), the deodorant (deodorant for your private area? You learn something new everyday!) and the colourful mini-wipes, (perfect for popping into your handbag). If there’s any new skincare product to you need to add to your daily routine in 2017, it’s Femfresh!
