Soap & Glory's Wish Upon a Jar Review

Wish upon a jar, 50ml, £15.00

So as you know I got this for my birthday last month. I wanted to try this ever since I heard about it on MissBudgetBeauty youtube channel . It made a firm place on my birthday list and with this in hand my boyfriend first thought he was looking for a soap because of the name, ha!

Here's what it claims:

- Boots moisture levels
- Fights fine lines and wrinkles
-Hide flaws
-Moisture boosting

With Youthfake diamond spheres to illuminate the skin and minimise the visual aspects of lines, wrinkles, shadows, large pores, pigmentation and discolouration.

For best results use under or as your facial moisturiser twice daily for 21 days straight. When the course is complete revert back to your favourite daily moisturiser.

I think you then leave it for 3 months and again repeat the 21 day treatment.

So, first of all I used this as directed for 21 days, twice a day, which I'm quite surprised that I didn't forget at least once (yay me!). My skin type is dry/sensitive. First off, don't be put off by the price, it is quite expensive but as its a 21 day treatment it will last a long time and you only need a small amount. First of all I think the packaging is cool. The cream itself is pink and smells amazing, it smells just like Terry's chocolate orange so if your not a fan of that smell this wouldn't be something for you however I love it! The cream is a thick consistency but doesn't feel thick or greasy on the skin.

After 21 days of using this I absolutely love it. It has definitely improved my skin in terms of texture and appearance. My skin feels so smooth after using this and just generally looks healthier. As I am only 24 I luckily don't have fine lines or wrinkles as yet  but I do have a few areas of acne scarring and the appearance of this has definitely improved. Also, whilst using this I didn't get any blemishes which is something I usually do suffer with.

In my opinion this cream is AMAZING it definitely helps your skin look and feel better, I don't have anything bad to say about the cream at all.

Hope this has helped anyone who has been thinking about buying it.

Has anyone else tried this, thoughts?

Chanel Vs ELF cream blush

E.L.F Cream blush in Temptress, Soleil Tan De Chanel

I thought Id compare these two products, even though they are from completely different ends of the spectrum are a similar sort of product and thought it would be interesting to see if the infamous Soleil Tan Del Chanel really is "all that".

 So here are the products side by side (please excuse the mess my brush has made to the products)

Here they are swatched, ELF on the left and then Chanel on the right

£6.50 - 15g
Packaging - Square glass pot, pretty basic but I do kind of like this about ELF products
Product itself - Mousse consistency, brown (no orange tone), no shimmer, blends easily
How I apply - Any blush brush
Pay off - Good pigmentation, no orange
Smell - no smell really
Overall - I really like this product and will definitely get more colours in the future. It doesn't blend as well as the chanel as its not as creamy but does give a really nice bronzed effect and for £6.50 you really cant complain.

£29 - 30g
Packaging - Plastic round tub, is pretty mainly because of the chanel logo
Product itself - Creamy consistency (so smooth), brown/orange, no shimmer, blends really easily
How I apply - ELF stipple brush
Pay off - I find this very orange toned and find its only controlled when using my Elf stipple brush I really have to be careful not to add too much product or it looks like I am just walking around without my make up blended in properly or I have fake tanned very badly!!
Smell - does have a smell to it, I do like it its not horrible but could maybe bother some people
Overall - I really do like this product, I prefer the creamy consistency rather then the elf's mousse consistency but find when its applied properly its really pretty but if applied wrong its really really wrong and its not hard to do this because the product itself is just very orange toned. In my opinion I wouldn't say its worth as much hype as it has had over the years but is still a nice product even with that said.  

This is obviously just my opinion but thought it might be helpful to those who are maybe contemplating buying the Chanel bronzer. As I said I do really like the product but that maybe its labelled as amazing more because of its brand than anything else and maybe other cream bronzer are just as nice.

Have you tried either of these, what are your thoughts?

Spring nails

As the UK has warmed up a little Ive been reaching for lighter shades for my nails, I love the pastel trend especially on the nails, these are some of my favourite colours at the moment.

 Barry M Peach Melba (318), Barry M Berry I/C (308), 17 Sweet Kisses, Barry M Blueberry I/C (306), Barry M Mint Green (304)

Peach Melba and Berry Icecream are definitely the ones I reach for the most, I never get bored of them.

I apply Seche Vite (dry fast top coat) over the top and I could not rave about this product enough, its amazing. I finally got around to buying it a few weeks ago and it is the best top coat I have ever used. I can go a week without my polish barely chipping and I'm really not one for waiting around while the polish  dries and I end up annoyingly smudging it but with this it dries almost instantly *love*

What are your favourite nail polishes at the moment?
