The New Way to Clean Beauty Blenders: Tested!

I had seen numerous tweets on cleaning a beauty blender this certain way and all the results had me impressed every time.
As I'm really bad with cleaning my makeup tools often, I decided to give this new way of cleaning my beauty blender a go. As you can see, it's incredibly dirty which made me even more eager to try this out and see if and how it works.

So, I simply put my beauty blender in a jug of cool tap water and added a tiny bit of Johnsons baby shampoo which is what I use to clean my makeup brushes too. If you don't have baby shampoo handy, fairy liquid works just fine for this too!

Then, I popped the jug in the microwave for 1 minute. Once 1 minute was up, I squeezed out the unwanted product from the beauty blender and rinsed it under the tap.
Repeat the process if it's still dirty. I had to repeat two more times to get mine clean.

The final result!
As you can see, I couldn't get it fully clean, but this way of cleaning beauty blenders is excellent! It's quick and easy to do. I really shouldn't leave my beauty blender for that long awaited clean next time.

The Concealer That Has Lasted Me (Pretty Much) Forever!

revlon colorstay concealer review

best concealers 2017

Obviously, the word 'forever' in the title of this post is extremely over exaggerated. Although, how amazing would it be if you could keep hold of a product forever without it running out? However, I have owned this concealer for quite a few months now. Every time I've bought this, it always lasts me ages. There's nothing different or exciting about it, it's just the usual concealer in a tube. Maybe the applicator doesn't soak up as much product as other concealers do... I don't know.

I originally bought the Revlon Colorstay concealer some time last year when I was loving the Revlon Colorstay foundation. What I love about this concealer is that it's the perfect light colour for pale skin. It doesn't have that 'orange' undertone like other light concealers do. It blends out really easily and smoothly. It does seem to settle in fine lines under the eye but after patting over with a damp beauty blender and setting with powder straight after, it's soon sorted. The clue is also in the name, the concealer stays in place for a good six hours. Sometimes you'll need to go over a stubborn spot once or twice throughout the day but overall it's great!

PRO.VOKE Touch of Silver - Every Blondes Dream

provoke touch of silver reviews

Being blonde, you need to take really good care of your hair. This past month, I have come across these products and I don't know why I hadn't found them sooner!
I usually use the brightening shampoo (in the middle) once I've just coloured my hair or if it's looking dull or brassy. The violet pigment neutralises the brassy/yellow tones in the hair and makes the hair visibly brighter after one wash.

Then we have the colour care shampoo and conditioner. The colour care shampoo pretty much does the same job as the brightening shampoo, I just use this as a normal shampoo every time I wash my hair. Again, it keeps your blonde hair bright and gets rid of unwanted brassy tones in the hair. The colour care conditioner works like any other conditioner, it locks in the moisture to keep your hair non-damaged and healthy.

After using these three products for a whole month, I have received so many compliments. People have said that my hair looks brighter and thought I had it re-done at the salon. It's so much softer, it looks in much better condition and it's super shiny! With prices starting from as low as £2.19, you can't really go wrong. I recommend this brand to every blondie.
