Magical Unicorns Oracle Cards

Moonsea Magazine & Mac Stack Mascara


Office Shoes

Didn't get a lot of stuff last month, but here is my March 2022 haul:

After getting into Tarot, I decided to buy a couple of Oracle card decks, including Botanical Inspirations and Magical Unicorns. 

I won a competition on Instagram and won a copy of indie Moonsea Magazine, also received a sample of the new Mac Stack Mascara, and was sent a 3 month course of Viviscal to test and review.

From Office I bought a couple of pairs of shoes which will be revealed soon (if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen them already on my stories)

Last but not least, a YesStyle Haul (not pictured), which you can see in detail here.

Did you get anything nice last month?



Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Neon Eau De Parfum

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Neon Eau De Parfum

A few weeks back I received a sample of the new Juicy Couture fragrance, Viva La Juicy Neon Eau De Parfum. Described as a scent that lights up the room, it features the following accords:

  • Top notes: Pink Grapefruit, Lemon Primofiore and Raspberry
  • Middle notes: Orange Blossom, Gardenia Brazil NaturePrint and Jasmine Sambac Absolute
  • Base notes: Captive Musk, Tonka and Luminous Woods

The most noticeable notes for me are Pink Grapefruit and Orange Blossom. It is definitely an enjoyable citrus scent however I find that the Neon name might not be the best suited to it, as it suggests an electrifying, bright and sharp perfume and personally find the Viva La Juicy Neon Eau De Parfum to be more of a warm sweet scent, and would imagine it best suited to young adults and worn on a cosy summer evening or autumn afternoon.

The Viva La Juicy Neon Eau De Parfum is a beautiful and subtle fruity floral scent, which I would recommend if you like a warm, citrus and sweet fragrance.

YesStyle Haul 07

YesStyle Haul 07

Welcome to yet another skincare haul from YesStyle! Everything you see in the picture above was free ;D

The haul could have been bigger but I experienced some minor inconveniences that I managed to resolve. So in my latest shipment I received: 

Haruharu WONDER x PHANTACi Set: it contains the Serum, Toner, Cream and Oil from the Black Rice line, and a Black Bamboo Mist, all in travel sizes, plus a beautifully designed case, information card and stickers. 

Cheermo Faceted Ear Cuff: nice little accessory. It was the free gift of the day.

TROIAREUKE ACSEN Recovery Cream: enriched with  salicylic acid plus centella, marigold and portulaca extracts, it helps aid recovery for acne prone skin.

iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Eye Cream: contains 40% propolis, plus seabuckthorn, niacinamide, probiotics, peptides and soothing camomile, rosemary and licorice extracts. 

I won the haruharu Set and Troiareuke Cream in a couple of giveaways though almost missed out on the first item as I was waiting to claim it along the sponsored product of the month but they weren't updating their page and my link expired, however they did honour it in the end, which is amazing!

Sadly there was no sponsored product this time, but I'm waiting on a new delivery which will have one, so stay tuned for the YesStyle Haul 08 which is coming very soon!

Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray

Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray

Last year I got the Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray as I like to use a leave in product after washing as part of my haircare routine. 

The Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray is designed to smooth and protect, while providing the following benefits: 

  1. Smooth and control frizz
  2. Provide thermal protection
  3. Hydrate and soften
  4. Detangle to prevent breakage
  5. Boost shine

The Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray is very lightweight and has a sweet fragrance reminiscent of strawberry jelly, which I like. It is easy to use, just shake and spritz all over the hair avoiding the roots. 

It does make my hair feel very soft and smooth, helps detangle and adds shine. After washing my hair tends to get very frizzy and it only settles down until the next day, so regarding frizz control I don't really see much improvement, especially if I only rough dry my hair or leave it to dry naturally. The following day however, it is much smoother. 

What I also like about the Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray is that it has 3 types of Keratin, and they are all listed very high in the ingredients list, so they make up an important part of the product. And while it also contains oils (albeit Jojoba and Sesame ones) it does not make hair greasy at all so it is great for straight hair, and even fine or thin hair as it won't weigh it down.

In case you are interested, here is the ingredient list:

Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Keratin, Hydrolyzed keratin, Keratin amino acids, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Sesamum indicum (sesame) seed oil, Cetrimonium chloride, PPG-3 myristyl ether, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Silicone quaternium-22, Citric acid, Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, Benzoic acid, Sodium benzoate, Sodium hydroxide, Dehydroacetic acid, Parfum/Fragrance, Hexyl cinnamal

I would definitely recommend the Hask Keratin Protein 5 in 1 Leave-In Spray if you are looking for a lightweight leave in conditioner that smells nice, boosts shine and leaves hair soft while protecting from heat styling tools.

Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules

Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules

Some time ago I received a sample of the Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules, which included 7 capsules of their Hydra-Plumping Serum that claims to visibly plump, firm and hydrate the skin using various sizes of hyaluronic acid to draw in moisture and ceramides to lock it in. 

When used daily, the Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules promise to "help redefine facial contours, hydrate and reclaim skin's youthful bounce".

The biodegradable capsules are relatively easy to use, just twist the tip to open then press and apply the product over the skin. I did find that when trying to open the capsules, as you need to hold firmly on to it while twisting, some product may rush out, making application a bit messy. Also found that one capsule would be enough for at least 2 uses, as when I tried to use even just half of one, my skin would feel a bit greasy and it was hard to apply any moisturiser over the top. 

The first ingredient in the Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules is silicone, to give it a silky feel and seal in moisture. It also contains Ceramides, 2 types of Hyaluronic acid, Lactic Acid, firming Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, and a variety of nourishing oils, including Sunflower Seed, Olive, Avocado and Castor. 

All in all, it is a very nourishing formula that would be great for dry and mature skin types or to apply after using any actives that may be drying (such as retinoids or acids). However, even though I did like the product, my skin is on the oilier side, so I don't think I will be purchasing it (in the near future, at least).

Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum

Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum

Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum

A while back I received a sample of the newest addition to the Ghost fragrance family: the Orb of Night Eau De Parfum. 

The Ghost Orb Of Night EDP is described as a woody floriental eau de parfum and features the following notes:  

  • Top Notes: Cherry, Almond, Mandarin and Bergamot
  • Heart Notes: Orange Blossom, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Freesia
  • Base Notes: Caramel, Sandalwood and White Musk.

After applying, the most noticeable note for me is the Almond one, and after a while I am able to perceive more of the sweet Cherry note, until finally it settles into a warm Caramel note. 

While the floral notes are quite subtle, or at least I wasn't able to perceive them as strongly as the other notes mentioned above, I still enjoy this fragrance and would definitely purchase the full size Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum, especially as it is more affordable than many other perfumes currently on the market. 

I would recommend the Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum if you are looking for a warm, sweet and subtle fragrance that is also affordable (RRP £27 for 30ml, £38 for 50ml and £48 for 75ml).

Find Ghost Orb Of Night Eau De Parfum on Beauty Bay and Escentual (currently on offer and with a free gift).



Sleeping Beauty: Products to Help Improve Sleep

Sleeping Beauty: Products to Help Improve Sleep

Many of us have problems falling asleep at night or waking up feeling rested and ready to start a new day (and if you don't, tell me your secret!) which is why I have compiled this guide of products that can help you fall asleep at night and also improve the quality of time spent in the wonderful land of nod.

Better You Magnesium Sleep Body Lotion*: this moisturiser contains Magnesium Chloride which is a natural muscle relaxant, plus essential oils of Lavender and Chamomile for a relaxing effect. I find that when I use this body lotion I have a more restful sleep and don't wake up during the night.

Lush Twilight Sleepy Body Spray*: this sweetly scented mist contains essential oils of Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Benzoin and Tonka. I spray it in the room at night as part of my routine to help signal to myself that it is bedtime. This spray can also be used on the body, clothes, pillow and bedding however I find it a bit too strong for that.

Avon Naturals Dreamy Scented Spritz: this Lavender & Chamomile body mist promises an instant freshness effect and can also be used as a room spray for a mild and soothing fragrance. If you don't enjoy sweet scents you may prefer this one, which features mainly a chamomile scent with a more subtle lavender note.

John Frieda Overnight Miracles Hair Lotion*: this product is designed to erase 64% of surface damage while nourishing and smoothing split ends. This repairing lotion has a light texture that leaves hair soft and features a calming Lavender and Sandalwood fragrance. Full review here.

Lush Joints Massage Bar*: this CBD infused solid lotion contains nourishing organic Shea and Cocoa Butters, plus Patchouli and Sandalwood essential oils to help wind down and relax. Also features 25mg of CBD to further soothe and reduce any aching.
