iS Clinical Review

A few months ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a coffee meeting with some of the girls from Octane PR to have a chat about iS Clinical and their products.'The iS Clinical range is a prescriptive range of products and treatments that aims to be results oriented. Developed by an elite panel of leading pharmacologists, doctors and experts in molecular biology and biochemistry the range is foundered on the highest level of integrity using the purest pharma-grade and botanical quality ingredients.'

I was very lucky to get a sample of the Cleansing Complex, Hydracool serum, Active Serum Super Serum Advance and the SPF 30. So I put the products to the test over the course of a couple of months, to make sure that I could give you a true analysis of what I thought - I find that it takes a while for my skin to truly see a difference when using a new product.

Over the past few months I have been using these products as advised, mixed with the skincare routine I had previously been loving. Although I have noticed no dramatic difference in my skin, I have noticed a huge difference if I don't use the products for a day or two. The serum's in particular work amazingly and I really do feel a difference with the texture and overall appearance of my skin. The cleansing complex is also lovely. I normally use this at night after taking my make up off as it's quite a thick formula that I find works best with clean skin.

Overall I'm really impressed with iS Clinical and their products! This was a brand I'd never heard of before, however I definitely think I would like to look further into some more of their products and the especially the treatments that they offer!

October Favourites

I think Favourite's posts and videos are one of my favourites to read/watch especially with the change in season, I love to be a bit nosey and see what people have been loving that's new recently! Here's a few of mine from October...
  • MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick - In theory I have a lot of similar products and always seem to lean towards nude lipsticks however recently this is all I've been reaching for. The formula for a Matte is still quite moisturising and I've just found it the perfect everyday colour that's so easy to wear!
  • Benefit Rockateur Blush - A little rediscovery for me recently and I think possibly my all time favourite blush! I purchased this about 2 years ago and keep going back to it. I love the natural glow it gives and how it can be built up!
  • Topshop Loafers - Shoes are one of my many weaknesses and these were something a bit different for me but I absolutely love them! They're just a bit smarter for everyday wear but also a nice alternative if I don't want to wear heels on an evening out!
  • Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer - Once again I was probably a bit late to the party with this one and can now see why people really like it! It definitely helps cover my extreme dark circles and I even used it on it's own dotted around my whole face the other day and it actually worked pretty well!
  • Tresemme Deep Cleansing Shampoo - A bit of an odd one for a favourites but I thought I would just mention how good this was! My hair was getting quite clogged up from volumising shampoo's and various other products recently and I was struggling with product build up, but within 1 wash this had completely cleared it and I just use it twice a week now to keep my hair soft and shiny. It's so reasonable too!
What have you been loving this month?

Ted and Muffy AW15 Launch

A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited to Ted&Muffy's blogger soiree to celebrate their new footwear label launch! I'm a bit of a self confessed shoe addict so of course this was a perfect evening for me, full of gorgeous boots and accessories whilst sipping on a glass of fizzy!
Ted&Muffy are boutique boot designers that create both shoes and boots in an array of calf and width fittings to a beautiful quality. They have everything from classic brogue styles, to ankle boots, to some of the best over the knee boots I've ever seen! (If only I wasn't so short!) Their newly refurbished store is also beautiful, this is now the inspiration for my house when I move out next year!
The lovely ladies who organised and ran the event helped each blogger find their perfect pair of boots. After much debate and consideration (I had my eye on several pairs and just couldn't decide!) I went for the 'Wonder' boots in black leather and I absolutely love these!
They fit my feet like a dream and are so comfortable. The heel is just perfect for everyday and the leather so durable. They also dip down slightly at the front so are extremely flattering for a girl like me with such short, stumpy legs! I'm pretty sure these will be my staple this year, now I want even more boots!
