Review: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water in So Chill Coconut

Hi Beauties,

Remember when Smashbox launched their Photo Finish Primer Water about a year ago? Since then they have launched limited edition Photo Finish Primer Waters in 3 different scents. My beautiful friend Camille from On a Beauty Bender kindly gifted me this, so I thought why not, lets give it a go.

Smash Box Photo Finish Primer Water

To be honest, I didn’t really expect much from it. I was never fussed about the original, as I thought it must be gimmicky. But hey, I got so I may as well try it. While compiling this review, I did some research and was surprised to learn that the original Photo Finish Primer Water is one of Smashbox’s best sellers, so clearly many people love it.

Tips to have a better night’s sleep

Having troubles sleeping? Ben and I have found some natural products that have helped us to have a better night’s sleep and we wanted to share them with you!


The Beauty Chef Sleep Inner Beauty Powder or Green Tea

After dinner and about 30 minutes to an hour before we go to bed I have a green tea and Ben has The Beauty Chef Sleep tea. Green Tea does have small doses of caffeine, so if caffeine really affects you you’re better off avoiding it. Personally it doesn’t affect me and I find it really helps to digest my dinner before I go to sleep.

For Ben I make him a Sleep tea- which reminds me of a turmeric latte. I heat up some milk in the Nespresso milk frother.

Literally 30 minutes after drinking the sleep tea Ben will fall asleep ridiculously quickly.

Review: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Hi Beauties,

A couple of weeks ago I brought you my review of the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask*. I know you were all very keen for me to review the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask* but I didn’t want to rush into doing a review without properly trialling it. Having now trialled it for the past 6 to 8 weeks I’m ready to share my verdict.


What is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask?

“A leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips.”

  • Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption.
  • Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix Complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses.
  • Exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients.
  • A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.
