Reflection - product stars

Thanks all for such a warm welcome back to the beauty blogosphere!

I wanted to start my first blog with a time of reflection. We have tried and tested so many beauty products over the last few years, that I wanted to revisit past posts, and see what I still use and have repeat purchased, and therefore love!

This shower gel may be pricey, but it definitely delivers, the smell us divine and leaves my skin silky smooth. I stocked up on this product a few months ago when my local store had a 3 for 2 offer, bargain!

I continue to be impressed by this product. So simple and cheap and it really sorts out my mess of hair! I am starting to think I need to buy another one, to pop in my handbag. Finally said goodbye to knots!

Bare Minerals foundation, and Mineral Veil continues to be a staple product in my make up bag. It continues to deliver a radiant face, but also treating any blemishes. I am a complete faithful advocate to this brand!

OPI continues to be my nail polish of choice, I love the colours, names of colours and the ease of application. I have some new colours I will have to share with you soon!!

Beautiful You – an update

Hello to all our beautiful readers!

We have had a rather long, overdue break from the blog and we wanted to give you an update on the reasons, and how we will be going forward with our Beautiful You blog.

The main reasons for our break were both time and money. Life is so busy with new jobs, work commitments, family commitments and hobbies, that we could not blog with the pace that we used to. 

We are also feeling the recession pinch and could no longer justify buying every new beauty product on the market (as much as we would love to, ha ha). We both have our staple beauty products that we no longer like to stray to far away from, our skin and our routine is used to these old favourites. Although we are still partial to a QVC TSV or a new product launch!

But we miss blogging! So we have decided to take our blog back to its roots and write on our little space on the web, when we want to and about what we want. It may not be frequently, but it will be quality!

A few things to expect from us in the coming months:

·         Spa and salon visits and treatments
·         Making beauty products at home
·         Guest blogs
·         Food, diet and recipe techniques (beauty starts on the inside!)
·         Our classic favourite beauty products.

We hope you stay with us, we aim to blog because we want to, about things we want to write about, and hopefully this will come over in our writing.
For now, we’ve taken a Halloween picture out of the archives, below, for you to enjoy.

And we will see you very soon!

Stay beautiful!

Happy Halloween!

Jemma Kidd make-up - free with Red!

Hello all!
Well we have had an extended break from all things beauty. With holidays and sunny days, we have both take a break from the beauty world to re-charge our batteries, but are back and excited by the products we have to tell you about in the next few months!

Tonight, easing us back in gently, is a little sneak preview into this month's Red magazine superb freebie. Red is a magazine that has a great reputation and does not need to rely on freebies, so when they include one it is a nice 'thank you' to their readers.

As a subscriber I get the edition earlier than it is in the shop, and the only downside is I didn't get to choose between the two great freebies on offer :-(

July issue of Red magazine
The freebies on offer are either a black mascara, normally retailing for £15 or a black eyeliner retailing at £14. So for the price of the mag (£3.50 - £4.00 I think!) You can't go wrong!

I Glamour volume mascara

The mascara wand is quite substantial, glides nicely out of the pot, and the wand has quite fine brushes on it.

I am looking forward to putting this mascara through its paces, and I'll let you know how I get on!! The mascara boasts 'fuller lashes' so I am excited to see the results.

If you want to bag this bargain, look out for Red magazine July edition hitting the shops on May 30th.

If you've tried Jemma Kidd make-up before, please let us know what you thought, we would love to hear from you.

Stay beautiful
