Glossier has FINALLY come to the UK. With Glossier products ready to ship to us Brits, you might be planning your shopping list already. Fortunately I have already put myself through this reeeeally difficult process, just for your benefit of course.. It's part of the beauty blogger service right? 

 Being impatient and y'know, addicted to beauty products, I couldn't wait for the UK launch. I actually made my first Glossier purchase last year in the US when I was in New York. Eyes wide with makeup abandon, I spent a good hour trawling through their collection and spent a long time researching, like, ALL the products. 


So if you're confused what to buy or wondering which Glossier products are best, I figured I'd save you some time and transfer you the fruits of my labour.

For those of you who have been living in a beauty hole and not heard of it, Glossier is a US beauty brand created by Emily Weiss, founder of super beauty site Into The Gloss. Into the Gloss actually started off as beauty blog and is now an all-singing, all-dancing digital beauty site - and Glossier is the beauty range that came out of it.

Glossier was immediately snapped up by the Instagram models and the beauty queens - EmRata, Emily Ratajkowski told me herself that she uses their Skin Tint, when I interviewed her in 2015. Obviously I had to try it!

I bought a selection of Glossier goodies, here are my thoughts on the ones to buy, the ones to try and the ones to err, gloss over... (wahey for puns!)





Glossier Moon Mask £18

The infamous moon mask was meant to be an amazing, hydrating and soothing treat for your skin. I personally love a cream mask as you can leave it on for a while it doesn't pull at your skin and it's easier to wash off than clay (plus it won't block your sink like clay does! I have Drain Unblocker on repeat buy)
I loved the texture and feel of the mask but it didn't feel entirely 'good' for my skin. It felt like a cheap mask that I'd bought from a supermarket basics range and I felt like it was clogging my pores on my nose rather than saving them.

 I think it would help dry, patchy skin or skin in actual need of hydration but as a weekly booster, it didn't really do anything for me. You're better off just layering up your night cream and keeping that on for 10 minutes. Would not buy again -recommend this Aura Mask by Antipodes instead - see my review.





Glossier Generation G lipstick £14

I bought this in shade LEO - a warm brown tone. With one swipe it's relatively sheer but you can build it up.

Big fan of this matte lipstick - it's not quite as slick as a lip balm but it's definitely easier and a lot lighter to wear than a normal matte lipstick. It doesn't clump or go chalky like liquid matte lipsticks. Did I mention HOW lightweight it is?!

It's not as moisturising as I'd imagine a lip balm lipstick to be though so moisturised lips are needed, but I would definitely buy again and try the other colours.







Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint £15

Don't expect any real coverage from this but if you've been working on your skin routine and only need a hint, nay, a whisper of colour to even out your face - then this could be for you. I bought shade medium and it was just about right.

It's got a lovely sheer finish for that real 'natural' look and unlike some tinted moisturisers it's not TOO dewy. It's definitely more makeup rather than a moisturer though, don't be mistaken. 

I've worn it but I'm not a convert as I need more coverage- would probably not buy again. I'd say it's overpriced for what it is - hit me with a teeny bit more pigment, an easier bottle to squeeze and then lets talk..







Glossier Stretch Concealer £15

Yeah okay, I'll bite. I like this concealer - it's creamy and easy to blend. The shade Medium is also okay for me. I use it under the eye but also around the face - it's what I would use to cover the bits that Skin Tint cant. 

Texture reminds me a little bit of Benefit Fake Up. Because it has natural goodies like jojoba oil, it does give a dewy finish. Whilst this is okay for under the eyes, everything else needs a dusting of matte powder otherwise I'd look a bit shiny.  Not a holy gral product for me but would buy again! Can we have a stick format though?





Glossier Haloscope £18


This is a lovely creamy highlighter that comes in a SUPER convenient stick format. It's got a little gel core which means it comes out a little bit more sheer and less artificial. I like it a lot - it MAY be breaking me out slightly but I like the effect it gives. 

However, not worth the price tag - only recommend if you're looking to splurge but you can definitely get cheaper alternatives. See the sticks that Kiko Cosmetics do.



Glossier Verdict?


So what's the verdict? Glossier is veryy pretty and I'm totally bought into the brand! It's a real 'capsule' collection that has everything a basic makeup kit needs. A decent attempt at trying to be inclusive with the colour range but could do a little bit better.

It's a brand that I'm DYING to love but unfortunately, not all the products lived up to my expectations - especially at this price level.  I'm still keen on becoming part of this Glossy Posse though so would definitely be interested in trying more though, especially now that I'm not risking paying a million pounds in potential customs. 

I've got my eyes on the Cloud Paint cream blush and some of their face serums..... but do they deserve any more of my cash? Let's see. (aka PAYDAY COME QUICKER)

Style or substance? Glossier Launches In The UK & Here's What I Thought



Exciting news, my future sister-in-law got engaged too! There is SO much bridal chat going on in that family, it's great. It's lovely to have someone going through the same thing as you though - smiley emoji's and cosy feelings all round.

For her birthday, we got drunk brunching at The Landau and after a excited conversation about her skin (skincare is always an exciting topic for me, drunk or not), I promised I would make her a super skincare bundle so that she could actually HAVE a skincare routine and see the results in time for her wedding day.

Since she lives in Birmingham, I figured I'd end up posting it to her so I decided to make a quick walk-through video to explain all my beauty product choices and how to use them. Cut to a 20 minute video later and I decided that this actually might be useful to SOMEONE else out there, so I've put it on YouTube.


It's literally the longest video I've ever made and it's also the FIRST video I've ever done not wearing any foundation but you know what, if I'm going to pretend to be some sort of credible beauty gal, I gotta show you the results too right?


Watch the video below or on my YouTube Channel





The Product Line Up



Here are the shopping links to the products mentioned in the video, plus some additional products I also like but cut out of the video. I have tried ALL of the below products myself. 

I've put the RRP up as well, but to be honest, most of these are always available discounted so don't freak out when you're seeing stuff over £50!

Some of these links below are linked to affiliate shops which mean that I get a teeny bit of commission if you buy anything. THANKS GUYS.


Night Cleansers



Something oil or cream based, to dissolve makeup and keep skin balanced. Actually GREAT for oily skin.



Nyasa Pure Glow Nourishing Cleansing Balm £50 - but would def buy again.


MooGoo Oil Cleansing Method £16.90 - lovely little organic, all natural Australian number.


Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner £19 - great for heavy duty makeup, bad if you hate coconut oil


Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish £14.50 - it's a cult classic for a reason.





Day Cleansers



Slightly lighter than the night cleanse, I like gel based cleansers to remove early morning oil, without stripping skin.



Eau Thermal Avene Cleanance £10.50 - a soapless, mild cleanser that's good for sensitive oily skin.



La Roche Posay Effaclar H Cleansing Cream £12 - super creamy gel, that's not too squeaky clean

La Roche Posay Micellar Gel Cleanser £12.50 - the secret is to use it with warm water.





Day Serums


A protective layer of antioxidants to enhance the skin's natural barrier function.

Jurlique Herbal Recovery Serum £47 - it's not cheap but I use it every day



Jurlique Moisture Plus Rose Balancing Serum £40 - rose is great for hydration and balancing out dry patches





Day Cream



Voya EvenPure £53  - again, not cheap but it's packed with organic ingredients which drive the price up. I'm also more inclined to actually use and take care with more expensive products.

Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute Cream £26 - a dependable pharmacy brand, I've had a great experience with anything Nuxe.



Embryolisse Hydra Mat Emulsion £22 - another decent French brand, I like this mattifying moisturiser too




SPF (crucial!!)



Dermalogica Solar Defence Booster SPF50 £55.50 - caused a dent to my wallet but has lasted forever. I only use it on my face.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Protecting SPF30 Mist £9.99 - FAVOURITE find of 2017

Filorga SPF50 Mist £29 - grown up version of the above, with added anti-ageing treatment





Night Cream



Elemis Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream Oil £49 - lovely stuff. Feels a lot more lightweight than some night creams.



Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate £38 - insert heart eyes emoji here



Clean Beauty Co Rosy Glow Oil £35 - a relatively new, small company so difficult to find stockists



Trilogy Rosehip Oil £19.50 - not mentioned in the vid but I'm a recent convert - also recommend the lighter Rosehip version for oily skin.

La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Light Fluid £16.50 - if you hate face oils, then this is your one.


Eye Cream



Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Cream £34 - the eye version of the day serum I use.

Dermalogica Power Firm Eye Cream £43.50 - the most expensive eye cream I own but it reminds me to use it every night.





Exfoliators

POWDER EXFOLIATORS are the way forward. Don't scrub your skin. Make a paste with these, apply to your face, let sit for a minute - I like to keep it on while brushing my teeth - and then rinse off with warm water. Do NOT vigorously rub your skin, let the natural acids within it do the work.



Dermalogica Superfoliant £55- if you only buy ONE thing. It's probably this. Would spend my own cash on this full price.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant £48 - cheaper, original version of the above - also love but the other has charcoal.



Indeed Labs Powder Exfoliator £18.99 - the next best thing. Try it - don't scrub! 





Toners



Made my own using: Aloe Vera Juice, Lavender Water, Witchhazel, Geranium Water from NaturallyThinking.com



Caudalie Beauty Elixir £12 - another cult classic.  



Neals Yard Rehydrating Rose Toner £16 - can't go wrong with rosewater really. The blue glass bottle is beautiful too.




Treatments



The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension £4.90 - good luck finding this stuff, it's always out of stock! 100% recommend but go lightly on your first go, it tingles!

La Roche Posay Redermic R Retinol Treatment £29.50 - only for visible fine lines, always research Retinol before you use it - and ALWAYS use SPF if you're using retinol.


Antipodes Aura Mask £24.99 - the mask that changed my opinion on cream masks. It's sublime - esp for oily skin.


Aesop Parsley Seed Mask £30 - quick and easy clay mask if you've only got 5-15minutes dry time.

Sukin Super Greens Clay Mask £11.95 - Packed with the good stuff, it's part clay mask, part delicious smelling antioxidant treatment.

B Makeup Brush Cleanser Spray £4.99 - DON'T UNDO YOUR HARD WORK.





ANNNNND That's it! A long list but it's an investment towards better skin.

VIDEO: She Asked For The Ultimate Skincare Routine - The Best Beauty Products & How To Use Them

chanel palette essentielle compact



Makeup splurge alert! Whenever I'm in an airport Duty Free, I feel like I need to buy something. It's most likely the whole 'spend to save', bargain hunting element of my nature. That, or the fact I have a blindingly obvious makeup addiction...

Wind back a few weeks. I was flying to Malta on my second ever press trip, passing through the airport departures in a cloud of 'I can't believe this is happening to me' and then I saw it. The World Duty Free shop. Like a moth to a flame, I instinctively headed in.

 What to buy though? I always use Duty Free as an opportunity to stock up on beauty essentials for less (cheap Benefit Rollerlash mascara & Kiehl's Midnight Concentrate being the recurring purchases here)

Beauty treat! My New Chanel Palette Essentielle Compact From Duty Free



zoe dubs london blogger presenter


Okay guys and girls, some beauty blogger skincare tips coming your way. Over the last few months, I've been really focused on skincare - basically trying to get the clear, calm adult skin that I've always dreamt of.


How do we get great skin? Well, some people are born with good skin genes, others have to work harder at it and those who eat badly and drink heavily need to try EVEN harder. (I'm not going to admit which of these groups I fit into but anyone watching my Instagram - I know you KNOW!)


So what's the plan here? What does "better skin" look like? 


Ideally I wanted to find a way to minimise breakouts, even out any patchiness in my oily yet 'these bits can be dry' combination skin, cut down on heavy foundation and focus on getting that smooth, glowing base that's neither dewy nor shiny but LUMINOUS. 

At the beginning of the year, I wouldn't have left the house without at least a light coat of concealer. Obviously, it'd be nice to not give a shit about this sort of thing (THANKS SOCIETY) but until then, getting better skin is the plan!


How did I do it?

So at the beginning of the year I decided to commit to a real skincare routine. A proper routine where you use the same products, at the same time, every day for at least a month without being tempted by newer, shiiinier products. It's practically a relationship, given the level of commitment involved.


Until this point, I'd been constantly dabbling with products, the beauty blogger in me desperate for another hit of 'something new' and although we ALL know we should be patient with products, I just couldn't commit to one for 4 days let alone 4 weeks.

New Year's resolution sorted, I went ahead and did it. And now? I'm pretty pleased! So much so that my next YouTube video is about my new skincare routine, and I'm not going to be wearing ANY foundation. Seeing is believing right?

Until then, here are the basics of what I changed in my skincare routine. I hope you find it useful because it worked for me!



zoe dubs london blogger presenter




First up - it's time to commit. Select your desired arsenal and stick to it for at least a month (unless it's causing you irritation or sensitivity). Due to the cycle of skin renewal, you won't be seeing long-term benefits for a few weeks. Plus, if you're chopping & changing, you won't know which product has done what. HOW will you know what to buy again?!


Secondly, I decided to abandon my previous go-to corporate brands (the Estee's, L'Oreals & Lancomes of the world) and move towards brands with a more natural & organic focus. Hello Antipodes, Sukin, Jurlique, Moo Goo, Liz Earle to some extent, Caudalie and other such brands! I did this mainly because many of the big commercial formulas I used were full of big commercial filler ingredients.


Getting knowledgeable about product ingredients is key - I abandoned SLS, parabens and most products packed out with silicone & other such nasties. Brands like La Roche Posay aren't natural or organic but they're free of 'bad' ingredients like this - so if you still want to buy a big commercial brand (they do tend to be cheaper & easier to get hold of), at least do it in a clean way.


Chuck in a couple of tips and techniques around product application, facial massage and HELLO. My skin has improved dramatically and my dream skin is almost within reach. I say almost, because honestly, will we ever be happy with what we've got?!


zoe dubs beauty blog launch party




I'll be doing a full video with my skincare routine & product recommendations but until then - here are some tips I picked up at the Jurlique launch last week.




How do you apply your skincare? 


Just dot in on your face and rub in? Applying too much pressure and rubbing too hard can actually damage the skin, which is why eye creams always to tell you to pat. One of the techniques promoted by Jurlique is what I call "the warm and press".

Warming product in your hands can activate ingredients and help product to spread better, thus using less product in the long run.


Press products into skin, don't rub. Pressing gets the formula to the deeper layer of dermis (i.e. the non dead stuff on the surface)


When applying, don't rub the eye area.


Delicate skin like this needs to be treated gently. Just use your ring finger to pat cream into the skin.
There's also no need to go all around the eye and overload the area - applying product just around the orbital bone


jurlique herbal recovery review tips

The fridge is your friend

The soothing qualities of calming products and toners are boosted when chilled in the fridge. Put your face mist in the fridge before you reach for it on a hot day - it works a treat and really invigorates skin during summer. It's particularly great for eye creams, and gives an instant de-puffing effect.


You learn something new every day

Finally - one thing I haven't tried yet but has been recommended by the experts at Jurlique. Use arnica on dark circles. I'm very familiar with arnica, having used it on bruises and the theory is that it works in the same way to shrink visible blood vessels.... will keep you posted! Dream skin is within reach!

How To Get Better Skin - My New Skincare Routine



Last month was a huge milestone for me - I went on my first ever international press trip. Aka giant free holiday after years of blogging and writing. I can tell you that the perks of Lifestyle blogging don't come as often as beauty blogging but when they do, they are PERKY AF. Time to become a travel blogger? PIVOT.

FACE VALUE TRAVEL BLOG? My first press trip to Sardinia



You don't have to know me to know that I’m not a fan of the gym. At all. But, if there’s anything I dislike more than exercise it’s dieting. For those of you subjected to my Instagram Stories, you now I practically LIVE in McDonalds. I never thought I'd be writing about diets on my personal blog, seriously.
But what if I told you there was a healthy eating plan you could try that STILL let you eat chocolate and drink wine for five days of the week? A bit more interested now?

Well, that’s exactly what I thought when I heard about the 5:2 diet. It was so intriguing that, out of curiosity, I decided to trial the plan for 30 days as part of my weekly beauty feature for Yahoo!Style.. From someone who feels the constant need to eat, the results were quite surprising. (SPOILER ALERT - I'M STILL DOING IT!)

Don't get me wrong, you will NEVER see me become a healthy living blogger but surprisingly this works for me, so I decided to do a video to share my experience
Check out the original post I wrote over on Yahoo Style for the full details but here's my personal video with what I learnt from the diet, easy ways to stick to the 5:2 diet and tips you should try.

On days where I was too lazy to meal plan, I tried the fast packs from LighterLife Fast. on this programme, you can have up to 800 calories on your fast day, eating 4 of their fast packs. They range from porridge, to soups, to bars and shepherd's pie - so not your average.

I also tried out a meal plan from the Exante Diet - which also had packs that you could mix & bake in the oven - like mini scones and chocolate puddings. Still sounding like a diet to you? Didn't think so - take a look at the video!






When LighterLife Fast heard that I was doing this video, they offered to run a giveaway - you can win your own kick starter set to have a go at the 5:2 - all you have to do is follow and RT on Twitter! An EASY COMPETITION for you all!


What do YOU think? Are you, like me, not about running or diets? Could this be interesting for you?

What I Learnt From The 5:2 Diet & How To Do It The Easy Way!



What a difference a BROW makes. It's funny how your attitude to makeup changes as you grow older. Ten years ago, if you asked me what I considered as my one essential 'can't live without' makeup product, I would have said eyeliner. 

Partly because I was a huge moody emo goth who knew that eyeliner was as essential to a gig as a mosh pit but ALSO because I genuinely thought my eyes were the one thing that couldn't go without makeup. (Well, more so than the rest of my face - plenty of teenage angst those days!)


These days, it's still in the above cheek area but it's not my eyes that I feel the need to define, it's my brows. Despite having dark hair, I think they're practically invisible without brow makeup. I genuinely think I look like Uncle Fester without them. Case and point below. HIYA.





Perfecting your brow makeup technique isn't a complex skill to master but it does take a bit of practice and a few learnings. Biggest learning from me is about the COLOUR. 

As if it wasn't hard enough shaping the brow, you need to take colour into account. I never took brow colour seriously - I always just reached for the darkest - until I started changing my hair colour and realising that my brow colour needed to be adjusted too.

Err, Zoe, don't you have blue hair? Sorry to disappoint. I'm not talking about matching blue brows just yet. I'm talking about the tiny shade steps between darkest and second-darkest. Deep brown vs soft brown. What's the difference?Should we even give a shit about it?


The only way to show you is by demonstrating. Let's go.




So for today's blog post I'm using the new Sleek Brow Intensity sticks  - a double ended brow product with a liquid brow colour on one end and a highlighting crayon on the other.

The brow colour is a sort of waxy, liquid that you paint onto your brows with the spongy end. It also has a mascara spoolie brush which allows you to spread the gel through the brow hairs. Both are super necessary for natural looking, defined brows.

The gel texture fully dries in about 30 seconds and it won't budge afterwards, so you only have a short time to fix any mistakes or blend anything out. Great for oilier skin but be sure to use a light hand when applying if you want it to look natural.

It comes in 5 shades from light to black and today I'm showing the impact of the colour you use.



Sleek Brow Intensity in LIGHT

Sleek Brow Intensity in DARK

Sleek Brow Intensity in EXTRA DARK
When scrolling through these photos, you might not notice much of a difference. Mr FV said they all look exactly the same.

It's true, the shade differences are barely noticeable if I don't draw attention to it but take a look at them all side by side below. Which do you think looks best?



The lighter colours are less severe but add an unnatural warmth that make the brow look quite fake and drawn on. The darkest colour looks the most natural in tone although it needs a confident shape in order to wear it.

When applied thickly, the Brow Intensity is probably more suited for a night out where I have time to really shape the brow but there are ways to reduce the intensity.


What to do when your brows look a bit too strong

Blur and remove some of the colour by buffing with a clean fluffy brush, or lightly rub a cotton bud over your brows.

Use a powder rather than a liquid brow product. Powder gives a much softer look than gel. Eyebrow powder is also great for filling in gaps and creating shape, something like these new Rimmel Brow Shake Filling powder.

The only downside of powder is that it's not as accurate and can smudge during the day.





Ultimately, I think there's a brow product for every situation.


If you have fab brows like Cara Delevigne that don't need any colour, but just shaping - then try a brow mascara to direct hairs in the right direction.

If you have full, hairy brows that are a little bit gappy or just need a bit of extra definition then try powder.

If you have fine brows like me - in the daytime, I use a powder for the bulk shape and then tiny, featherlike strokes with an eyebrow pencil for extra definition.

If you want a powerful girlboss brow, then gel makeup provides a sharp, well defined shape that lasts longer than other eyebrow makeup. Perfect for a night of throwing embarrassing shapes out on the dancefloor.


Shopping list

Sleek Brow Intensity
Rimmel Brow Shake Filling Powder
Maybelline Master Sleek Brow Mascara
CLINIQUE Superfine Liner For Brows

Does Your Brow Colour Make A Difference? I compare NEW Sleek Brow Intensity & Rimmel Brow Shake Powder




Not to show my age but I've been a big fan of Benefit Cosmetics for over a DECADE. It's a brand that doesn't take itself too seriously and that's exactly what I'm about. They have easy to use, effective makeup in fun and relatable packaging. Today's Benefit product is no exception to the rule.


For me, the cult Benefit beauty products have to be their blusher boxes. From the days of Dandelion, I was a collector (until I realised that keeping them for years was pretty manky in terms of makeup bacteria - but they DO last for ages

The newest addition to the blusher box collection is the Benefit GALifornia blush, a golden pink powder.




With 7 shades currently available, I did wonder if Benefit could come up with ANOTHER colour in the shade range but it doesn't disappoint. Let's take a closer look....

Infused with the signature GALifornia Dreamin' scent, it smells like pink grapefruit & vanilla. Even the brush has had an upgrade from the regular square shape - the GALifornia brush is rounded, for a softer more diffused application.


The colour itself is similar to Benefit Cosmetics Coralista blush, but slightly pinker & more glowy. Both would look fab in the summer with a tan. BRING ON THE SUN.





I first discovered the GALifornia blush backstage at Mark Fast where Lisa Potter-Dixon, head makeup artist for Benefit showed me how she created the catwalk look.

If you can't be bothered to watch the interview, here's a spoiler - SHE USED BLUSH ON THE EYES. Yes, coral blush on the eyes!



For me, pink eyes just says conjunctivitis, or pink-eye right? Well I decided to have a go at recreating the makeup look myself, in the comfort of my bedroom (just in case it didn't work out) and the results were surprising!

GALifornia blusher on the eyelids and blue They're Real mascara - who'd thought it would be so wearable?!






|What did I learn? Well, blue mascara is just 👌🏻 - especially layered on the tips, over black mascara.

Also, coral eyes are surprisingly wearable - ever since I tried red eye makeup at Halloween, I've been more interested in trying this colour. Definitely will be seeing more of me in this soon!

Pretty in Pink Eyes: LFW Hero Makeup Benefit Cosmetics GALifornia blush gets put to the test!




As a beauty blogger, I am up to my ears in fun stuff to try, test and review. A special soap for my nose, a speed drier for my brushes, you'd think I have enough to keep me entertained but the beauty junkie in me will always find something else to crave. It genuinely is a bit of an addiction.. I'm definitely in the right business!

February is the month of love and lust and the beauty item I've been lusting after this month is the Pro Blo Curl Me set. The team over at HQHair.com treated me to £50 off my Febrary lust-have and it was an absolute no brainer. Pro Blo, you must be mine!💓💓💓



What is the Pro Blo? It's essentially a barrel brush with detachable barrels. Basically THE blowdry product that I've been waiting years for. The Prince Charming of hair styling.





It's essentially a barrel brush with detachable barrels so you can curl your hair and clip them in like rollers.

To be honest, I'd love to be one of those ladies that gets a regular blowdry at a salon, but frankly it's time consuming and expensive. With the Pro Blo brush, I can now get big, bouncy curls that last all day. Even on my straight hair!

No more will I be getting a round brush stuck in my hair. No longer will my curls be going straight with minutes. The Pro Blo does what it says on the tin - it's a professional blow dry, at home.



Let's see it in action







It's official - I'm in love. My bank balance loves it too as I'm no longer paying for costly salon styling. The only people suffering are all those who can no longer see behind me due to the bounciness of my hair! (Oh yeah, and poor Mr FV who has to deal with me bouncing around on a regular basis - but even he can see a difference though!)
