Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask Review! (Cruelty free)



Hello again!


Bee Sting Lifting Fix Mask,, 2017

I was re-organising all my toiletries in my drawers in my bathroom, and stumbled on this little beauty. I had purchased it a couple of months prior, and loved using it every other day. For some reason it must have slipped my mind and got lost in the drawer, hidden under more bulky bottles, poor thing ha.

I was very excited to see it again, and immediately put it on my face. Its clear and gel-like in consistency, and glides onto the skin effortlessly. There are 2 methods for applying it: Apply a thick layer, and leave on for 10 minutes, OR apply a thin layer, and use it as an overnight mask!

I have tried both methods and my skin definitely feels firmer and tighter, when I use it as an overnight mask! Though, I often forget and end up using the first method the most. Which is no problem, as there are instant effects also.


Bee venom – Which they claim helps to plump up the skin, improving blood circulation of the face and filling in fine lines.

Propolis Extract – “Skin healer” with antioxidant properties. This is harvested by the bees via flower buds.

Gransil – Helps with reflection and skin to appear matte.

AC Moisture Plex – Keeps the moisture in the skin balanced.

Instensyl – Lifting effect, making the skin tighter and smoother.

-Information was researched via the boots website-

I often have bad luck with skin care products. Often, the products that are “the holy grail” and work magnificently for everyone else, do absolute squat for my face!

This mask however is wonderful, and I can notice a difference straight away. The results seem to improve the more that I use it. I would definitely recommend this product, and I will be re-purchasing!

I am also interested in trying more products from this brand, has anyone got any recommendations to share?

Thanks for reading, Take care! 🙂



Reviewing Barry M Flawless Matte Foundation (Cruelty free)


Hello and welcome to my first blog post!

I thought I would start with something that I have a great passion for, and that is – exploring the world of cruelty free beauty! It’s an added bonus when they are drugstore/affordable too!

As you can see from the title, I am reviewing the “Barry M Flawless Matte Foundation”. I have used it for around a week now, so I’m starting to form an opinion.

First off, I have combination skin, which is a complete mixture of oily and dry. My skin also does this funny thing of certain areas showing signs of being both dry and oily…at the same time! fantastic…bah!

So lets start the review.
