Avon’s Solutions Total Radiance Day & Night Cream + Illuminating Eye Cream

I have been using this skin care line for about a year now and I don’t think Avon get enough credit for their products! If you’re looking for an inexpensive day and night cream, then look no further than Avon UK. This brand, Solutions, is always on offer so you are roughly looking at about £4 per jar which is 50ml and trust me a little goes a long way! Sometimes they are 2 for £8 or half price. So it’s always good to wait for an offer to appear on the website.
I have found using these over time has changed the feel of my skin dramatically so much so I have recommended to friends and they have loved it! The creams are light but highly moisturising and make a great base for using under foundation. The eye cream is more of a gel based formula and you only need the smallest about I have had my pot for a good 4 months yet and It doesn’t even look touched!!
This range is currently on offer on the website. Solutions – Total Radiance
The full range of the AM cream, PM cream, Illuminating Eye Cream and Revitalising cleansing wipes are on offer for £10 currently!!
To be honest it’s a bargain and it works, so if you are looking for a cheap alternative to those lovely creams we would all like to purchase but can’t always afford it then I would suggest giving Avon a chance! If you don’t like it at least you’ve only lost out on a few pounds! Check is out at
Stay Radiant my lovelies! Xoxo

In the Groove Haul

Well, this collection came out on Thursday the 1st July which is crazy as its yet another collection that has been released in the UK before the USA!! The previous full collection, MAC To The Beach, was realised over here first unfortunately I didn’t really get to look at it before all the good stuff sold out so no Marine life for me! Never mind!!!

So the thing I was most excited about was the Mineralized Skin Finished (MSF) and I was so happy that I managed to get the three I wanted. Ok so the one I was most excited about was “By Candleight” it is a beautiful skin toned champagne colour which give a lovely sheen, basically the perfect highlight!

Second MSF is “Petticoat” this is a burnt rose also not too shimmery which some of the MSF’s can be. Personally this will be an evening pop of colour on the cheeks or even on the lids I’m pretty pale so I tend to be very soft with colour as I get paranoid about looking too doll like with bright cheeks I over blend to be sure!

Finally the one that has a little bit of a cult following “Stereo Rose” this is a lot stronger in the pan than on the skin. It is a coral with bronzed veining it transfers as a very subtle peach coral. Very gorgeous! I cannot wait to wear this.

I also got a mineralized blush from the collection called “Happy Together” I love the name! Its caramel and a light bronze the perfect contouring and highlighting duo, or swirl it for some cheek action!

I also got a Superglass which Steve helped me chose which one, it’s nice to have a man’s opinion sometimes! It is “Sugar Overload” a very nude colour it is crazy how much glitter they pack into these. It is slightly tacky but I don’t think it’s too bad. On its own it’s nothing amazing it just gives a nice shimmery gloss but over some lippy will make it pop just that little bit more! Am tempted to look into the brighter colours.... I’m not sure.
So what will you be buying from this collection???

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine xoxo
