Hello Nip + Fab

11 Mar

Kylie Jenner is their new celeb ‘face’ and the brand was brought to us by the founder of luxury skincare brand Rodial, meet your new go-to guardian of all things body and skin.

Nip + Fab aim to be accessible, affordable and effective and created for a woman who wants it all. Sounds like a big boast to me, but do their products live up to the hype? 



I’ve been trying out the Dark Circle Fix that contains red algae to target dark circles, tetra peptide to reduce the look of puffiness and shea butter to hydrate and soften.

You may have seen on a previous post I talked about Benefit’s It’s Potent! Eye Cream and whilst I like the formula of that, this Nip + Fab product is a lot more effective on the darkness of my under eye circles. 

Dark Circle Fix is really smooth when applying and I like the way the loose serum-like texture doesn’t pull on the delicate skin around the eye. I prefer to use this in the morning to reduce the puffiness of sleep and it does that really well but I’ll stick with a creamier, heavier solution for nightimes as I feel like they drench my skin with much needed moisture through the night.

Overall I think this is a great product and it does exactly what it claims to do on the bottle, I’m not sure how effective it would be at reducing wrinkles but if you suffer with dark circles I’d say this is worth the £15.95 price tag.

Micellar Water… What’s it all About Anyway?

10 Mar



So I kept seeing micellar water everywhere and I had no idea what it was, after doing some reading up on what it contains and what it does I was all up for trying it out.

Micellar water is loved by French ladies (reason enough for me to grab a bottle) and is free from alcohol and soap so it’s a really gentle way to remove makeup and because you don’t have rinse it off with water it’s also super easy for slightly lazy girls! Not that we’d ever scrimp on our skin care, right ladies? 

I found this B. Pure Micellar water in the Superdrug B. vegan range and loved the low price tag, I got this half price at £2.49 but it’s well worth the usual £4.99.

So, if like me you’re wondering what it actually does here’s a rundown of what’s on the back of the bottle. It’s a 3 in 1 “super” water that claims to cleanse, tone and refresh your face, suitable for all skin types, even sensitive. It cleanses by removing impurities and makeup and its gentle enough to use on the eye area. It tones by restoring pH balance and keeping skin supple. Finally it refreshes with cucumber extract.

For years I’ve removed stubborn makeup like mascara with cucumber face wipes followed by a swipe of Clean and Clear sensitive cleansing lotion but I think this micellar water could persuade me to change up my routine. It’s very gentle on my skin and even removes tough mascara with a couple of cotton pads, unlike face wipes this leaves my skin feeling full of moisture and silky soft. 

It’s a big thumbs up from me for this product, my sister has been using the moisturiser from the B. range and is loving that too so make sure to check it out while it’s on half price because you may just find a product you adore.

I recently went on a trip to New York (post to follow) and had such a wonderful time with my sisters and one of their boyfriends, we checked out all the sights, ate some delicious food and drank strong cocktails in cosy little bars in the East Village.

Now we’re home and I was greeted by a lovely surprise on the doormat, a beautiful new engraved piece of jewellery from blingthing.ch with Book of Fashion etched on. 







I could not be happier with this fabulous piece and I expect I will be visiting blingthing.ch to spoil my friends & family soon! 

This would make a lovely Mother’s Day present with children’s names engraved on and would be worthy of any fashionistas collection. Ariane is on Instagram @blingthing.ch and has a facebook page at facebook.com/blingthing.ch so check out her pages and get ordering because she is sure to be one busy lady!
