I don't change my foundation as often as I'd like to because my skin is so dry, most don't work as good as they should. But this Winter I've added a few extras to tackle hydration and radiance all in once, I got back my summer glow and my skin is soft and supple.

I wanted to sit down and write a relaxed post, something that wasn't planned or scheduled. Where I can let my mind wander and update you guys and everything that's going on! Alot has been going on lately, hence why my posts are abit hit and miss - I still blog everyday but the publishing times tend to be different each time. I recently got a new job, I am really happy with it and loving what I'm doing but I've had to put more efforts into that rather than this blog. I do love blogging, but it isn't my job and doesn't pay the bills.

Before diving straight into the full price tag, what better way to sample a product than through their handy sachets. The Body Shop's Vitamin E Moisture Mask (£13) is a product I wasn't afraid to try because my skin loves the Vitamin E range, especially they're Intense Moisture Cream. The Moisture Mask isn't too different to the rest of the product range

I'm always on the look out for a new hand cream that ticks all the boxes and I think I may have found just the thing! Atrixo Regenerating Treatment Hand Cream (£5.80) is perfect for caring for your hands during the colder months and for sticking in your bag on the go. 

A white, creamy gel that sinks in almost immediately after application, it felt really luxurious and left my hands feeling hydrated and silky soft. The best thing about this is that it isn't greasy and doesn't have any kind of sickly smell. I didn't apply cream for ages after using this, my hands felt soft for hours, longer than usual anyway!

It gives extra strength to hands that are feeling a little rough and chapped and helps to restore your skins natural balance. It's great value and currently 3 for 2 at Boots, I'd highly recommend this hand cream if your hands are a little unhappy during Autumn/Winter time.

I've had this palette in my stash for a while but completely forgot about it until now, Barry M Natural Glow Palette (£6.50) is a bargain for any make-up lover. The eyeshadow shade range is beautiful and comes with a gorgeous blush colour, perfect for girls on the go! All shadows and blush are great quality, super creamy and pigmented, they're really soft and easy to blend in. They don't become patchy or flakey, and very long-lasting. I'm in love with this palette and I'm gonna have to get more...

The Natural Glow Palette has a great selection of neutral shadows and blush you can wear everyday, there's six eyeshadows (both glitter and matte) and one pinky toned blush colour with two simple shadow applicators. (I tend to use my MAC 217 brush!) Unfortunately the shadows don't have shades names to I've swatched them as they appear in the Palette - insert thumbs up emjoi.

I've been using The Body Shop's Radiant Primer (£12) for a while now but I couldn't wait to share it with you guys. Basically, a dewy primer I tend to use over my moisturiser as it's very radiant and adds back that glow. After using this, my skin looks really healthy and plump, it's very soft and gentle without being irritating or breaking me out into spots! It isn't as hydrating as I'd like it to be so I mix this in with Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer. They both work perfectly together! 

The Radiant Primer is really lightweight and creamy, it isn't glittery or make you look like a gigantic disco ball. It blends in super easy and sinks in quickly, I only need use a small blob all over my face. Adding a clear sheen across my face and make-up goes on like a dream on top of this stuff. I'm really loving using this product and The Body Shop have some seriously good products!

I'm a little saddened by the Rimmel Undercover Shadow Primer and I'm not feeling alot any love for this. It's so upsetting because Rimmel is a fantastic brand and nothing I used before has ever let me down. (The only thing I can describe this product as, a let down...) I didn't do my research beforehand and instead went out on a whim and bought this - such a bad move! After not falling in love with this primer, I wanted to see whether anyone else felt the same and oh my, there are so many disappointed people it's unreal.

The wand didn't hold alot of product so applying enough product takes some time, it comes out in a white liquid form but feels extremely greasy and really powdery. It didn't do anything, it was pointless applying this let alone trying to involve it into my routine. My eyelids are quite dry anyway but after using this, concealer began to flake away. It really wasn't worth the hassle, and of course I'm really disappointed especially with it being from a brand I love so much.
