So Eco Face Brush Set

So I popped into Sainsbury's just to get a few little bits and accidently sort of on purpose end up in the beauty section and find this little gorgeous set of brushes just staring at me in the face for the bargain price of £9.00 - a price which I double checked considering the single brushes were around £7-£8 each. 

This set is the Face Brush set which contains Eye Shading Brush, Foundation Brush, Blush Brush and a Finishing Brush as well as coming wrapped in a Brush Wrap! 

The packaging reads -

''I am made from recycled & sustainable materials that are compostable, recyclable & bio-degradeable. My bristles are super soft & cruelty free. 

My handle is made from bamboo, which is an ecologically sustainable material. My aluminium ferule is recycled. My packaging is PEFC approved board from managed forests. My window is made from a corn starch. I'm held together using water based adhesives and printed using vegetable links.

I am a true eco alternative, try me and you too, can be So Eco...''

These are possible some of the softest make up brushes that I have ever come across and definitely some of the cutest. Now although you don't tend to see So Eco stocked in many stores don't let put you off because these are high quality for sure at a brilliant price! One of my best buys in a while!!!

So Eco Face Brush Set Available Here.

In Love With Green

I've been fairly good with buying dresses and bags lately I have to say but there are some really nice dresses and bags that are currently in the shops and all the ones that have caught my eye just happen to be in my favourite colour - GREEN!

In the green

All About Barbie

First it was all about McDonald's and Spongebob and now is is simply it's 'All About Barbie'. Now whilst I'm not exactly sure I'll be rocking the Barbie trend anytime soon Jeremy Scott - Moschino's Creative Director - has definitely started a trend with his Moschino Spring 2015 Ready To Wear line that was showcased in Milan this week and there is more than just a little pink as you can imagine. 

It's all very girly with lots of pink and very fun as well as very reminiscent of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde! Here's a few of the designs.

A little trip to Sainsbury's & Superdrug ended with this.....

So I've done a little bit of shopping again and only gone and bought some more little bits and products and a detangling comb?!! Sainsbury's had some really great offers on their haircare products and so I ended up buying two of the Tresemme Texture Style range - Divine Definition Spray and Tousled Wave Spray - both for £3.33. I then also managed to pick up VO5 Dry Backcomb Spray for £2.80.

I also picked up some random bits that weren't really needed such as a detangling comb and some exfoliating gloves but the bargain for me was the Sensodyne Pronamel Pack for the bargain price of £5.50. The pack contains Pronamel toothpaste and a Pronamel mouthwash which if you're like me and forever having problems with your teeth is definitely worth an investment. Not only that this also helps 'against the effects of acid wear' from drinking fizzy drinks and wine and also from eating fruit! 

So next up was Superdrug and Herbal Essences have their new range of dry shampoos out and I saw they had a new Limited Edition - Party Re-Fresh- that I thought I'd snap up seeing as it was an absolute bargain at £1.49! I then also got the MUA Pro Base Eye Primer which is something that I tend to not always use all the time but it's one of those products I keep coming back to and for £2.50 it never hurts to have a spare. Then finally I just got some boring large cotton wool pads for all those products that require them. 

So not a massively exciting haul I'm afraid - just some essentials and yet more hair products. Whoops.

Current Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist

Beauty Wishlist by chloeslowrie featuring an urban decay blush

So as we have now hit September I always get that feeling of summer ending and the autumn/winter is coming and that for me usually means that I have a wishlist of products that I feel I need in my life! Now I did my Current Perfume Wishlist a few days ago and now it's the turn of my what beauty products I currently want.

Now my wishlist is mainly higher end products and I think that's because I haven't really tried much from any of these brands that always seem to be raved about in magazines and other bloggers so I'm quite curious to see what all the fuss is about. Plus currently my make up collection doesn't really have that many stand out products that I continuously seem to reach for so I'm looking for products that can maybe become that within my collection.

Have any of you tried or have any recommendations for products that I definitely need in my life? Then please let me know!

August Favourites

So monthly favourites time and well yeah here are my favourite products of August!


So my first for hair is Urban Fudge De-Gunk Deep Clean Shampoo which has become by go to shampoo for the last month. I am quite fussy with shampoos and get really impatient if I don't feel they are making a difference to my hair within the first couple of days but with this shampoo I've just stuck to using it because of how nice my hair feels after using it. 
The shampoo aims to get rid of the excess product in your hair that you get if like me you are a product junkie. We don't always realise how the build up of excess product weighs our hair down but this gets rid of that plus the citrus mint fragrance of this product makes your hair smell amazing.

Next up is the new Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo which has taken over all the other dry shampoos in the race to be the best for me! Everything about this product is brilliant - amazing smell, no white residue on the hair, value for money - literally cannot rave about this enough! This for me is the one to beat in terms of dry shampoo. And the final hair product is OGX Nourishing Coconut Weightless Hydrating Oil Mist which I love to use on my hair after using heat just to re-hydrate my hair and as someone who loves the smell of coconut it just makes my hair smell amazing and always makes me feel like I'm on holiday!


So for the face I've been loving the Bourjois Happy Light Matte Serum Primer so so much that I actually now need to repurchase a new one as there's so little left I now have to scrape it out! For me this primer just makes my skin feel so soft and keeps my make up in place all day as well as that just wearing this alone on good skin days is enough for me! The other face product is the Nivea Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water. Now everyone is doing micellar waters these days - they are literally eveywhere and new ones pop up on a weekly basis but right now I'm loving this one. This is great if you have sensitive skin as not only is if formulated for it but it is actually gentle with no overpowering fragrance. I'm pretty biased as I love everything Nivea but this is a winner for me. 


Recently the Nspa range from Asda underwent a makeover so when I find the Nspa Patchouli and Ylang Ylang Softening Sugar Scrub in the old packaging in the reduced section for a whole 62p I literally snapped it up and how glad I did! This body scrub has kickstarted a whole new love for body scrubs. And finally a favourites wouldn't be complete without my favourite perfume and for August that was the amazing See By Chloe

Me and my mum got the gift set of this in the Boots half price sale after Christmas and I haven't really used it that much but the last couple of weeks I've been using it everyday. It's a very floral scent with the notes of sandalwood and vanilla but not a sickly sweet floral scent just a nice, grown up everyday perfume that's not too overpowering. This is one of my top 5 perfumes and one that I will definitely repurchase again once I use it up!

Current Perfume Wishlist

Untitled #15

I'm pretty much addicted to perfumes! Lately it's been getting to the point that I've near enough been buying a new perfume every week. When I feel I want to treat myself I always have a little look in various shops to see what perfumes are currently on offer or which new ones have hit the shelves however there are a few perfumes that I haven't quite managed to add to my collection yet. 

So although my boyfriend won't be thrilled at the prospect of me adding potentially more perfume to my already quite large collection - here is my Current Perfume Wishlist!
