It’s that time of year again where The Bloggers Hangout host Bloggers London Fashion Week. How exciting! It’s an excellent opportunity for brands and companies to connect as well as other bloggers getting to know each other. I went last year but unfortunately couldn’t make it this time.
If you’re like me and couldn’t make it, this blog post is showing the brands & their must have products that will be there. And if you are going here’s a little sneak peek 😉 A big thank you to the brands for being so generous and allowing me to try out your wonderful products!
MeMeMe Cosmetics are a affordable, cruelty free makeup brand that do some incredibly stunning pieces! And isn’t their packaging lovely?!
Here are some of their products, Shimmer Stack in Pink Zest, Lip Glide Velvet Finish Lip Colour in Rich Truffle, The Ultimate Eye Palette in Soft Rose and Beat The Blues Iridescent Complexion Illuminator & Highlighter in Oyster Gold.
I really love every product but I do have a couple of favourites.
This is absolutely stunning! Such a perfect nude. It has a velvet finish but lasts like matte. It doesn’t budge and doesn’t make your lips dry. I definitely want to try more shades.
Just look at how perfect for summer this is! I can’t wait to create some gorgeous soft, shimmery looks with this, it’s just so stunning. The eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and blend like a dream. You also get a double ended brush, a shading brush one end and a blending brush the other. Perfection.
The first thing I thought of when I opened these babies up is how incredibly beautiful the bottles are. They are definitely vanity table worthy!
The first product from Bravura London is First Cleanse Oil. This is a very interesting product, I’ve never come across an oil cleanser before! When water is added, it turns into milky cleanser which removes any trace of makeup. Perfect for all skin types, even oily skin!
Next is Revitalising Ginseng Toner 5% Glycolic Acid. This helps tightens the pores and helps loosen a build up of excess dead skin cells for a fresher appearance. This is for normal to dry & even sensitive skins.
Last up is their Glycolic Acid 10%. This will help to me your skin and help your skin to produce more collagen which helps with wrinkles! This can also help with acne, enlarged pores, dry skin and many other conditions. There’s also a little brush to help apply is with too! These 3 are a match made in heaven!
You all know how much I love my nail polish and nail art but unfortunately with me blogging more and more I don’t have that much time to do them anymore. But that doesn’t mean I want them neglected! & that’s where this baby from Sensationail comes in. You can make your favourite nail polish into a gel mani which can last upto 2 weeks! You get everything you need to start, including a LED Lamp for Curing. A great product for saving you time and cash!
L.A.B.2 Blend Right In Sponge Applicator is perfection. This soft sponge doubles in size when wet and gives an absolutely flawless finish to your makeup. It doesn’t soak up all your makeup and the extra point tip is absolutely perfect for getting the inner corner of your eyes with your concealer or around the sides of your nose without caking it in makeup (which I really struggle with using my current beauty sponge).
Ah Batiste will always be my favourite dry shampoo brand, I can never get enough. So when they came out with a hair style range, I was super excited! My favourite is Oomph My Locks Volume Spray. This is a necessity for anyone. When my hair is straight, I really struggle to get volume and always end up backcombing the roots. Not anymore! A spray of this and you’re good to go. And without the damage.
Now is their Texture Me Texturizing Spray. This adds the finishing touch to your hairstyle, be is straight, curly or up in a pony tail. A great little but noticeable finish to your hair style.
If gel nails aren’t your thing and you want nails that pop then these are for you! Instant nail art and non of the mess. These packs from Thumbs Up contain 20 nail wraps with 10 different sizes & last upto 2 weeks!
If you don’t fancy using them all at once, an accent nail looks gorgeous also and makes your wraps stretch. The 3 designs I have are Negative Space Metallic Effect Cres and pearl shine Nacre.
These also remove with nail polish or gently peel off, a lot less damage than fake nails. Fuss free and damage free.
This is Weleda Skin Food and went straight on my elbows! I have on elbow in particular that gets so dry and sore it actually hurts. And this little gem smoothed it right out! You can use this several times a day, pretty much wherever you want where you get dry skin. It’s all natural so there are no nasties in this. And it smells so amazing! Although I love a good sweet scent, there’s nothing that can beat natural, so fresh!
urban veda Radiance Body Scrub goes hand in hand with Weledas Skin Food. These two together will make you pins perfection for summer! This Scrub get rid of dead skin cells boots collagen and even has Licquorice in it to give luminosity to the skin. It cleanses and and even moisturises which I find very rare in a body Scrub. And thanks to the Papaya and Goji Berry, it has an amazing scent. Definitely a must have for the hot weather coming up!
Here I have the Vitality Shot by ioma Paris, the First Radiance Creator Serum for personalised use. This is a Serum that you can apply to your bare skin or mix in with your moisturiser where you add the amount of drops for the finish you want. 1 drop will enhance your natural radiance, 2 drops boosts the radiance and protects and 3 will give you a stunning glow.
The Serum comes with a dropper so you know exactly how much you’re using. This makes your skin feel and look incredible before makeup or even moisturiser is applied (if using on bare skin of course).
The next product I have are the ioma Tabs Expert Rituel. These were made especially for travel and contain 7 little pods of products. I have 2 doses of Fresh Gel Eye Makeup Remover, 2 Doses of Flash Youth Eye Contour Concentrate, 1 Dose of Lip Lift and 2 Doses of Youthful Moisture Cream. These are so ideal for the weekend away, no need to take 4 to 5 different bottles with you, you’ve got everything you need here. Definitely the product for a romantic weekend getaway!
Another amazing Skincare brand next Jurlique. Lets start off with Sunless Tanner. As well as giving you a natural glow, this products adds hydration and protects you from environmental damage. Just what you need in the hotter weather! Now this Rose Body Oil is incredible! It soaks into the skin so fast, not even a tiny bit greasy and leaves you skin as soft as a baby! It’s so lovely. The Intense Recovery Mask works hand in hand with the Sunless tanner. This also protects from environmental aggressors as well as softening find lines.
But by far my favourite product is their Rosewater Balancing Mist. This stuff is incredible and smells gorgeous. This is amazing for under and over makeup and gives such a lovely glow to the skin even on makeup free days. This is a best sellers and I can see why!
Healthy eating can be a struggle when you’re avoiding the sweet stuff like cakes and chocolate. Having products like UFIT I’m chocolate flavour and Collagen Beauty Milk in strawberry can certainly help curb those cravings. The Collagen Beauty Milk is amazing to start the day with. It contains a stack full of vitamins, green tea extract (which we all know is great for tummy fat) and Hydrolysed Collagen. Having a strawberry milkshake for breakfast guilt free? I’m in!
This combined with the UFIT protein shake is perfect. I have this after a run or workout to fully absorb all the protein and I don’t want to touch any chocolate or sweet food for the day, the best way to keep on track.
As a sufferer of very dry skin, Pure Potions is a godsend. Specifically designed for sensitive, dry skin as well as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis, this is a wonderful skincare range. All these products can be used on every age from babies to the elderly. The Bath And Body Oil helps reduce the drying effect on the skin water can have whilst having a bath. The Skin Salvation Intensive Moisturising Ointment is an amazing multi task product. Can be used anywhere on the body, a little or as much as you like and can even be used overnight for extra hydration.
Scar Oil is a product everyone needs. Whether its stretch marks, acne scars or scars from an accident as a kid, everyone has them. I think it’s always a handy product to have and helps your skin whether you gave scars or not. This helps with aging, uneven skin tone and dehydrated skin, we’ll worth having in your makeup collection. Last up is their Daily Moisturising Cream, you can use this as much as you need to keep your skin healthy & hydrated.
I only wish you could smell this candle! This is Posy Vase in the scent Spirit from Kenneth TurnerThis candle is so incredibly stunning I really didn’t want to burn it! As well as the stunning glass, which can hold tealights after use, you get a gorgeous charm with the name of the scent on the bottom.
Kenneth Turner screams luxury and every product would make a wonderful addition to the home. For use or decoration the scent spreads around the room without being too overwhelming, an incredible product.
Paul Mitchell, an amazing hair care brand that prides itself on being cruelty free. They have a wide range of products but just the Extra Body Daily Rinse & Shampoo are amazing. They add volume to the hair and make it so incredibly soft!
The Super Skinny Serum makes your hair so smooth all day. Doesn’t make your hair greasy (as long as you’re applying it right and not straight at the roots!) and is lightweight. The Conditioner is by far my favourite product of the bunch. Usually leave in products are my enemy for making my hair greasy or feeling weighed down but I feel like I should be on a TV advert!
The Dry Wash doesn’t leave any whiteness in the hair at all, which is a big bonus. Last up the Hold Me Tight Finishing Spray. This locks in your hairstyle amazingly without using half the bottle and is flexible so your hair doesn’t feel like stiff straw. This is an incredible brand with such a wide range of products and I adore how proud they are to have always been cruelty free.
Now onto my last company of this post. Jones+Jones do some absolutely stunning dress and I felt so pretty in mine! This would be perfect for Prom, and for the price an absolute bargain. They handmake their dresses, so much love goes into each and every item. I can’t believe the quality for the price and fits like an absolute dream. It makes me want to throw a party just to have an excuse to wear this dress!
And that’s it! Every single one of these brands are incredible and I’m so honored to be involved with them. Are any of you going to Bloggers London Fashion Week or have you tried any of these brands before? Let me know, thank you all so much for reading! ❤
