Look after your skin with No7

Over the years I’ve battled to make my skin better and healthier, and to be spot free. It certainly wasn’t an easy ride with the usual teenage hormones wreaking complete havoc. Plus being so fair over the years I’ve gone from a super pale baby to a heavily freckled face thanks to sun damage and general day to day exposure even on the cloudiest of days.

Your skin is one of your most vital organs, it protects you everyday so you should protect it too! Keeping it healthy, hydrated and moisturised will do you a favour and help prevent the ageing process showing too!

We got our hands on the No7 Lift and Luminate Collection from Boots, which helps with moisture levels but also claims to help out with evening out skin tone, firming and protecting us with UVA protection in the form of SPF 15 within the day cream.
You don’t need much of the day or night cream to cover your face and neck as a little bit goes a long way! Meaning your money goes far because you get more applications for that tiny amount!

No7 Lift and Luminate Day Cream, and Lift & Luminate night cream, £24.95 each available nationwide at Boots stores and online.

Right now too you can get these in the 3 for 2 deal! So don’t delay buy today!!

Be sweet in… SEVENTEEN

This season it’s all about out with the old and in with the new – especially when it comes to your make-up. So switch up your look and experiment with the hottest trends with the help of SEVENTEEN’s bold new trio of multi-tasking Eye, Lip and Face Palettes.

Whether you want to rock pretty pastel lips, smouldering smoky eyes or simply just have a flawless finish, each palette has daytime cool to night-time wow covered. The colourful new palettes are available in a variety of fun and on-trend shades, finishes and textures, which can be used alone or blended together to create a bespoke look that’s unique to you.

Not only that, but each unique palette features brushes to apply the products like a pro and a ‘get the look’ guide to inspire you – all in a handy compact that you take with you on the go. With all of this in one failsafe palette, you can define, shade, contour and highlight your way to the latest autumn looks whenever and wherever you feel inspired!

NEW SEVENTEEN Easy on the Eye Palettes (RRP: £7.99) are a sweeping sensation! You can get the look with a choice of two palettes, ‘Birthday Suit’ (nude) and ‘Big Smoke’ (smokey eye). Both feature a collection of eight matte, shimmer and pearl powders, three metallic creams, and an eye primer with dual ended applicator brush, mirror and a get the look guide for extra inspiration.  I loved the shade variations and the double ended brush, the shades make for a lighter smokey eye! Gorgeous! Keep an eye out for my #selfie of No7 & SEVENTEEN combined!
