My beauty obsession continues! Here’s this months top pics….


Viviscal Healthy Hair Growth

My nails are like paper and shed something terrible so bad in fact that I can’t even get a week out of shellac. So, when I received Viviscal from their event goodie bag, I was intrigued! After just two weeks of taking Viviscal supplements, I noticed a huge difference in my nails and hair. After the full month I notices my nails were so long & strong that the flaking even stopped. As for my hair, it grew that fast, I only got 4 weeks out of my highlights! If you are looking to help healthy hair and nail growth I would definitely pick these up. They are a bit on the pricey side but I highly recommend them and I have seen them on special offer a couple of times in various pharmacies so keep an eye out.

You can pick up Viviscal online here or in pharmacies and health stores.


Declaré Age Control Multi Lift Serum

Yes, I know, sing another tune but I can’t stop raving about this serum!!!

I have been using this for months, and only half the bottle is gone! The results really are incredible, even from the first use, skin appears remolded and firmer thanks to the active marine ingredients. My skin had a radiant and youthful freshness that people have actually noticed. I really felt that after just a couple of weeks, my fine lines and wrinkles were dramatically reduces. The formula is so light that it can penetrate deep into the skin to help cousin fine lines and wrinkles.
I have tried some wonderful products in my time but this tops them all. I’m prone to breaks outs and suffer a lot dehydration in my skin but I can honestly say this serum didn’t cause a single breakout it and left my skin feeling super hydrated, instantly and visa my firmer. This is one product I can recommend without a single hesitation.
It’s available in selected chemists for €35. The price point is excellent for such a highly effective product and it will last you ages!

Physicians Formula – Super CC Cream Concealer

Like a lot of women I suffer with dark circles under my eyes. But because I have deep set eyes, I get a shadow too which makes dark circles look darker. So first thing to remember is to avoid white concealer as it will only make dark circles look grey. Instead I opt for a concealer with an orange undertone as this will combat the dark circles. I’ve been using Physicians Formula CC Concealer Cream in the Light/Medium shade  for a few months now and I will definitely be repurchasing. I find it’s light, super hydrating but gives good coverage.  It’s long lasting but doesn’t dry out the eyes, nor does it sit in the creases of the eye, which can make you look older. It instantly brightens the eye and gives a lovely dewy look. If you’ve got dehydrated eyes and dark circles are a concern, I highly recommend this. Apparently it’s also available with SPF 30 too… now there’s a superb selling point of an eye care product!


Urban Decay – All Nighter Make-up Setting Spray

Want your to last all night? Want to reduce the t-zone shine? Well, simply mist on this weightless spray to give your makeup serious staying power. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Sparay really is true to it’s word and actually keeps your makeup perfect, almost looking like it’s just been applied. It helps it last for up to 16 hours – without melting, cracking, fading or settling into fine lines so for me, that’s a bonus.
If that ain’t enough to make you dash out and buy, then get this, it features patented “Temperature Control Technology”… very snazzy! In simple terms, this mist actually lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep foundation, eyeshadow, blush and concealer in place – even in hot and humid or cold and windy conditions. The result? Smoother-looking skin and vibrant makeup that lasts all day (or all night).  I love this! One simple spritz before you head out the door and you’re face stays in place!

Sleek – Matte Me

I love red lippie, but I don’t have the time (or the effort) to stick my head in a mirror every 20 minutes to reapply it. That’s why I love a long lasting red. But, I really hate when they dry out my lips!

Sleek’s Matte Me is a matte finish liquid lipstick that glides on in one smooth application, with no need for a second coat. The light as air texture provides you with comfortable wear for hours, that doesn’t cake, flake or dry out, ensuring long lasting colour all day. Rioja Red is my favourite shade, it’s a true bright red that that gives you a true Hollywood effect.


You can pick any of the Sleek Matte Me’s in pharmacies (including Boots) for as little as €6.99.


Do any of my favourites from August interest you? Of have you snapped up any of these beauts?
