Rose Perfecting Oil

The rose perfecting oil from Rosina’s lotions and potions is by far one of my most favourite products to use at the moment! It comes in a little blue 30ml bottle but don’t be disheartened because a little of this oil goes a very long way. The Rose perfecting oil is deeply moisturising and perfect for all skin types since its rich in nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins! As you can guess this is a little rose scented number which is so relaxing and the oil itself is so delicate on the skin. Infused into this little gem is Argon oil, sunflower seed oil and rosa damascena flower extract each of which have great benefits to skin such as – retaining moisture, reducing wrinkles and acting as anti inflammatories – the perfect combination for all your skin needs!!! I apply this after taking off my makeup just before bed, it leaves my skin feeling silky and smooth and by the morning my skin feels so nourished and really well moisturised.  I also notice that when I’m using this my dark circles aren’t as prominent and my non made up face looks a lot brighter and less dull than usual! What I also love about Rosinas lotions and potions is that on all of their product boxes they have their ’story’ written on one side, its a warm welcome and really gives you feel of the company!!

Scandaleyes XX-treme Mascara 

Rimmel are always bang on form with their mascaras! Any low end drug store mascaras that I end up falling in love with are always from Rimmel, I just love that they get it right so often! Whilst picking up my usual mascara I saw this bright hot pink tube jump out to me and being intrigued I picked it up and in my basket it went. Usually I don’t really dig combed mascara wands as I feel like they just don’t lift my lashes very well or give me the desired length I want but this one really shocked me!! The XX-treme Mascara has a dual action application wand, one side is flat and straight, this offers length and definition. The other side is curved and this offers volume for a really luscious full look. Both sides are combed and this is to ensure no clumps or those dreadful spider leg lashes! This works wonders for me, I’m able to work the lashes really well and add another coat before its completely dry to give my lashes a more defined look, with other mascaras I’ve found they don’t always react so well to more than one coating. This is definitley a mascara to try for yourself!

Double Wear Foundation

What a shock, not! I’m sure you’ve heard just about everyone going crazy over the Estee Lauder double wear foundation by now. I was sceptical at first as I am about most foundations but after hearing more and more great things about this one I just had to bite the bullet and try it for myself. I walked into my local boots and asked for some advice from the Estee Lauder counter staff since I wasn’t entirely sure what colour I needed. They wanted to ensure I’d leave the shop with the right shade for me so I had a colour match test done, this literally takes a couple of minutes and is done using a little hand held device that picks up the pigments in your skin. I was given a shade but on testing it turned out to be too dark (blame my bronzer!!), we tried the shade down from that and it was perfect! I get on so well with this foundation, its so smooth to apply and spreads evenly across the skin. On drying it doesn’t go completely matte either so it gives you a really youthful look and a lovely base to work with. Double Wear also doesn’t cling to any of my dry patches or accentuate any of my facial lines, it really is a badass foundation that remains looking beautiful even at the end of the day! I also find that applying concealer on top of this felt so much smoother and the two blend really well together. I get so excited about using my Double Wear foundation its a definite must have and it will convert any beauty addict!

    Hi , some nice products there.
    I’ve also heard great things about the Ester Lauder foundation but I don’t tend to wear foundation as it sits in my skin but could do with some help . I’ve not heard a bad word about this though so might give it a whirl !
    Thanks for sharing, Tracey x

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 20, 2017 / 12:55 pm

      Yes for sure try it out!! Even if you go to your nearest Estee lauder counter and ask to test first they’ll be sure to help and its definitely worth a shot!

  3. Stephanie Merry March 20, 2017 / 3:01 pm

    The Double Wear foundation has been once of my favourites for so long now x

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 20, 2017 / 4:18 pm

      Its so worth it isn’t it!?

  4. StressedMum March 20, 2017 / 3:41 pm

    I has used Rimmel products since the 80’s and do always find myself going back to them, as they are lower end budget but do deliver. One thing I am always trying new products for is mascara, and I have not tried this one yet so will be making this my next purchase x

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 20, 2017 / 4:19 pm

      Yes absolutely! I love Rimmel, I always try new mascaras too and this is doing the job at the moment nicely!

  5. Ioanna March 20, 2017 / 4:39 pm

    Nice products! The “Double wear” makeup is on my wishlist!

    Kisses,

    I haven’t tried Estee Lauder’s double wear foundation but I have heard that it is pretty good so I definitely need to try it out! It was lovely to meet you at Blogcon! Have a lovely day xx

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 20, 2017 / 8:27 pm

      Its so good Ana you should have a little test at the counter!! Awwwh was so lovely meeting you there too, we defo should meet up and have lunch!

  7. Sarah Bailey March 20, 2017 / 7:13 pm

    I may have to try that Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara, I’ve tried two other mascaras with combed wands and I have been quite disappointed with the performance of them. I think the rose perfecting oil sounds really nice as well.

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 20, 2017 / 8:28 pm

      Yes the scandal eyes mascara is defo the best combed wand I’ve ever used! I love the rose perfecting oil its so perfect and works so lovely on the skin!

  8. hannah March 20, 2017 / 8:54 pm

    I’ve tried the Double Wear foundation but actually prefer the Double Wear Camouflage as the coverage is better

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 21, 2017 / 9:19 am

      Oooo I’ll have to have a look at that one!! I was using the Urban Decay all nighter foundation and thats really high coverage but I think thats also why I like the coverage of this one its different but still great on my skin!

  9. Whatlauraloves March 21, 2017 / 2:27 am

    I’ve been using Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation for YEARS. I’ve tried Double Wear Light too which I actually prefer but they’re both fabulous for oily skin xxx

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 21, 2017 / 9:20 am

      Oh awesome I’ll have to check the light one out too!! I’m so in love with the foundation it feels so lightweight on my skin!

  10. Rhian Westbury March 21, 2017 / 9:51 am

  11. Tina Andrews March 21, 2017 / 11:10 am

    I just tried the doublwear last week and love it. The color matches perfect and really gives my complexion a nice look. would love to try the mascara, looks nice and thick for adding bulk to thin lashes

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 21, 2017 / 1:19 pm

      Oh yes its so great isn’t it!! Glad you’re a lover of it too!! The mascara is really good on my lashes, I work them a little with it wait a minute of two and work them again to add extra depth and definition it works wonders!

  12. Yaya March 21, 2017 / 12:14 pm

    I really want the Double Wear foundation. If I needed yet another review of some raving about it this one is definitely it! x

  15. Baby Isabella March 21, 2017 / 1:32 pm

    My mummy has yet to try the Estee Lauder double wear foundation, she’s been using her Lancôme one for years now and it’s the perfect shade but she’s started to notice her skin drying up with it. Might give this one a go x

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 21, 2017 / 1:39 pm

      Its a really great one especially when transitioning from something else!! My skin can get quite dry and I also use the Lush skindrink moisturiser thats great for hydrating and replenishing the skin if you wanted to try that too!

  16. ivana March 21, 2017 / 5:22 pm

    I just need that foundations so bad, i am always late when it comes with make up xoxo

  19. Charli Bruce March 22, 2017 / 10:28 am

    I have a love hate relationship with double wear, some days it looks absolutely flawless and others it looks like it hates my skin! I haven’t tried the oil you’ve mentioned here but I do own another that I absolutely adore x

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 22, 2017 / 12:00 pm

      Oh no that sucks!! I really do love mine and it works really well on my skin but I’m forever putting skincare products on my face too!

  20. Rachel March 22, 2017 / 11:41 am

    • francescaferrarinelson@yahoo.co.uk March 23, 2017 / 10:49 am

  24. Anosa March 22, 2017 / 4:12 pm
