TRIED & TESTED FEATURING THE GOAT SKINCARE PRODUCTS FOR DRY, ITCHY & SENSITIVE SKIN


Who knew goats milk would become a popular alternative in looking to treat irritated skin conditions... 

If there's a skincare range out there that looks to treat dry, irritated and sensitive skin...that would have to be The Goat Skincare range. By using products that incorporate goats milk, it looks to provide the skin with much needed moisture and hydration - which in effect relieves your skin from any dryness, irritation and and itchiness caused by sensitive skin. 

Here are some of the products I tried out: 


Soap Bar, The Goat Skincare 

This soap bar is enriched with natural Chia Seed Oil which leaves your skin feeling soft. It's a really gentle soap bar that's very enriching especially if you have dry, irritated and sensitive skin. 

Moisturising Wash, The Goat Skincare

This moisturising wash contains manuka honey and it's a gentle formula which is made for those with dry and sensitive type skin. I've been enjoying using this body wash in the shower everyday as it relieves any dryness from my skin. It's very moisturising and I would definitely look to consider repurchasing in the future. 

All of the above mentioned products are available via their official website here

TRYING OUT LUXURY LIP COATS FEATURING THE TATOUAGE COUTURE MATTE LIQUID LIP STAINS BY YSL BEAUTY


If you beauties haven't explored these beautiful liquid lip stains by YSL, then check out my thoughts below. 

Firstly, let's talk about these high pigmented and ultra matte liquid lip stains by YSL. It essentially works as a lip stain offering high impact colour as well as the lightweight and comfortable feel. You won't even feel like they're on the lips! 

The formula is quick drying (being a matte liquid lipstick) a good tip is to go quick and with ease. What I love about these liquid lipsticks is that it's transfer free the spatula like tip applicator allows for a precision liner as well as a sturdy control. The ink like formula stays on the lips for up to 8 hours, making it quite long-lasting for the whole day. Of course, if you feel like re-applying after several hours you may wish as well, but I found that there was no need for it. The texture feels so beautiful and silky soft on the lips which is perfect for my ideal type of liquid lip stain. There is no sticky feeling upon application and I'd have to say these are so far my go to favourites for a matte lippie! 

As for the colour shade range, there are a variety to choose from making it perfect for every skin tone out there.  


Pictured above is in shade 01 Vibrant Pink Red 

As you can see the applicator comes in a spatula like type of shape making it easier for precision and control. 


Swatched shades above include (From top to bottom): 

01 - Vibrant Pink Red - Featuring a sexy bright red and pink shade that pops with so much colour. If you want to make a statement with your lips, be sure to pick this shade out! 

11 - Nude Rose - For a sultry and pretty pink look for the lips, the Nude Rose shade is the way to go. It's soft and perfect for those wanting to rock a softer look for the lips. 

03 - Bright Pink - And if you're after a bit more pink...then the Bright Pink may be your answer. It's pretty and gorgeous for a girly look!

FRAGRANCE REVIEW: BLACK OPIUM BY YVES SAINT LAURENT EAU DE TOILETTE


Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium is made for an everyday, glamourous perfume. 

This is a glamourous women's fragrance, featuring Black Opium by YSL. The fragrance top notes consists of mandarin essence, pink pepper essence and pear accord. The middles notes consists of orange blossom, jasmine and floral solar; whilst the base notes consists of coffee, patchouli, cedarwood and vanilla. 

Overall, I'm in love with this scent because it lingers on my skin all day long. It offers a rich scent that's not too overpowering which is great. A handy tip would be to apply the fragrance to your pulse points to prolong the scent even more. If you love your floral fragrances, then you may enjoy trying the Black Opium by YSL. This scent has definitely been my go to scent for everyday as it's easy to wear.
