Protect Kids from top to toe this summer with Nivea & Eucerin Sun Care*.


KIds Sun Care from Nivea & Eucerin 



Kids and sun cream...if they had their way, the two shall never meet! Having children myself, I know all too well the importance of keeping our little ones safe whilst in the sun. But unfortunately, kids just don't see it that way, and the battles with my two were never in short supply because they hated the thick, greasy and icky feeling that many sun creams provide; and who can blame them as some are indeed horrible! However, since discovering these from the drugstore favourites, I've been able to finally say goodbye to those daily battles and keep my kids protected from top to toe with a little help from Nivea & Eucerin.

Nivea brings the fun back into  application with their kid-friendly  roll-on  and trigger spray  application to make life that bit easier for everyone; along with their non-sticky, fast absorbing but  deeply moisturising formulas that's specially formulated for children's delicate skin. These contain highly effective UVA/UVB filters for immediate protection and is also water resistant which makes them perfect for fun in the water!






No doubt, the trigger application of the Nivea Sun Kids Moisturising Trigger Sun Spray SPF 50+ 300ml £7.99* (UVA rating 4 stars) will be a favourite amongst children as not only will it encourage them to apply it on themselves, but on each other too! (Closely watching, of course!) This deeply moisturising formula comes  in a convenient pump that allows a much more faster and effective application than regular pump sprays, (great for parents who's little ones who won't sit still!) This non-greasy, easily absorbed, water resistant formula is loved by my youngest (I think she sees this as something similar to a cleaning product haha!) as this is regularly used whilst at our local beach.




Ingredients:
Aqua, Homosalate, Octocrylene, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Alcohol Denat. Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Sodium Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonate, Ceteareth-20, Panthenol, C18-36 Acid Triglyceride, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Citral, Parfum
Size (300) Unit (ML) Height (15.3) Width (6.3) Depth (4.7)
Product code: 727861

Another firm favourite with my kids is this super portable roll-on design from the Nivea Sun Kids Caring Roll-On SPF 50+ (very high) 50ml £4.99 (UVA rating 4 stars), for that last minute protection before going to school. The roll-on also makes this an excellent choice for little hands as it also allows them to be that bit more independent (you know how kids are!) with it's easy, fun, self-application, whilst also helping kids learn the true value of sun protection at the same time. Due to its size, it's also great  for the hand bag so you can keep protection at its highest level throughout the day.



I also ride a bike and my hands get quite tanned! But I've recently noticed sun spots appearing which is not good! So, I also use this to apply to the back of my hands as the roll-on application makes it really easy and prevents having to wash my hands afterwards. I just rub the back of my hands together and off I go!  

Ingredients:
Aqua, Homosalate, Octocrylene, Glycerin, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Alcohol Denat, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Butylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Sodium Phenylbenzimidazole Sulfonate, Ceteareth-20, C18-36 Acid Triglyceride, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Citral, Parfum



The Eucerin Sun Kids Spray 50+ 200ml £19.50* (UVA rating 3 stars) is perfect for my eldest as she suffers with sensitive skin and has suffered with eczema flare-ups throughout her young life. This super lightweight, non-greasy lotion from Eucerin helps keep my mind at rest knowing she'll receive the highest protection without the worry of any irritations to her skin. It also contains glycerine which keeps the skin moisturised whilst strengthening its natural barrier.

This formula is suitable for children from the age of one and is free from parabens, colourants and perfumes. It's UVA/UVB formulation helps to protect children’s sensitive skin from short term sunburn and provides biological cell protection to reduce the risk of long-term UV-induced skin damage. It's also water resistant, which again, ensures continued protection whilst in water. The pump spray is  brilliant for applying to hard-to-reach areas, such as the back of shoulders,  arms and legs which is essential for those regular top-ups!

3 Brilliant Eyeshadow Brushes That Make a Difference!


 


If someone were to ask me what are the most popular eyeshadow brushes that makeup users apply,  I'd have to say it'd probably be a flat shader, a fluffy crease brush and an angled liner. And let's face it - having these has you pretty much covered when it comes to creating any eye look. But there are others that I've discovered that I'd now be totally lost if I didn't have. Today, I'm sharing you 3 of my most favourite brushes for those specific jobs when a crease or a flat shader just won't do! I agree these may not be the most prettiest brushes to look at as you can see they've been very well loved! I find these to be brilliant for either multi-tasking or for taking a specific job to the next level.

Tanya Burr My Escape Eye Palette | Review & Swatches


Tanya Burr My Escape Eyeshadow Palette 


To kick off the Summer season, YouTube vlogger Tanya Burr has released a new collection to her makeup range called Neutral Ambience. The Summer release sees two new eyeshadow palettes: a khaki based quad called My Escape, and an inspired Rose Gold sunset called My Paradise. The collection also features two new lip shades: Bear Hug - a Peachy Nude (I'm debating on that one) and Sunday Walk - a Rose Pink.

I admit, other than watch the odd makeup tutorial, I'm not really a follower of Tanya Burr (it's mainly the young that follow her) but I do follow her Sisters in-law, Pixiwoo - and it wasn't until I watched one half of the duo (Sam) create a khaki themed look using the My Escape eye palette, was then  inspired to make a purchase. Performance wise, I wasn't sure what to expect as I've heard a lot of mixed reviews with regards to her products. But considering it only cost £ 5.99, I wasn't that worried.

Hourglass | Ambient Lighting Edit Palette - Surreal Light : Review and Swatches




The Ambient Lighting Edit Palette in Surreal Light is probably the most expensive makeup product I own, and one that had my husband witness me lose all sense over when I politely asked for his assistance in purchasing this (in other words, his wallet!) last Christmas (yes, that long ago!) For as long as I can remember, I'd read nothing but people raving about Hourglass. So when they released this limited edition, I thought it'd be a great way to try a variety of different products and see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately, unlike other fans of Hourglass, for me, my love affair with this palette proved no easy ride due to the timing of this rather warmed toned, summer-esque compact was released (in the middle of British Winter); and other than the odd outing, it had pretty much been sitting left redundant in my drawer - until recently.
