EXCLUSIVE: Bespoke VIP Day with Manchester United

MAN U

Hey guys!

So as some of you may have seen on my social media, this week I got to experience something that was honestly the best day ever. Just over two months ago I received a lovely email, followed by a phone call from Jason, a member of the VIP team at Manchester United Football Club. He invited me, along with 3 guests to go to Old Trafford and enjoy a day with Jason himself, experiencing their VIP package, as massive Manchester United fans, of course I had to say yes. When Wednesday the 19th of July came around, it was finally time to travel up to Manchester and experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.

We arrived at the stadium just before 12pm, we were greeted by a member of the Museum’s VIP Team, Jason who was already in the museum and tour entrance waiting for our arrival. He greeted us and gave us our passes, then took us straight up to the Red Cafe, where we were given menu’s and could choose any food and drink that we would like. I would like to mention also, that every single member of staff we encountered was so lovely, from the car park attendants to the restaurant staff, to the museum staff, to the stewards and security and of course Jason, I couldn’t fault any of them, they all made us feel super welcome and relaxed whilst there.

In our group was my mom, my dad and myself, collectively we don’t eat a large lunch, it’s just not something we do, so we decided we would all have a dessert and a drink each. I had a salted caramel brownie with ice cream and my mom and dad had an ice cream sundae, both were presented lovely as well as tasting absolutely unreal! The Red Cafe update their menu every 12 months or so to make sure that they are only serving food and drinks that their fans would like. We didn’t personally have a meal, however there were many families, couples and individuals who did around us and I can say that the portions were enough to fill you up and I didn’t see anyone waste any of it, so it must have been lovely!

IMG_8255  IMG_8254

Now onto the main event.. The museum and tour. As a VIP you get a guided tour around the museum instead of wondering around by yourself. When entering the museum the first thing you see is the English Football League Cup on a table with a backdrop, where you can have your photos taken with the cup and have them printed there and then for a souvenir to take home with you. Jason proceeded to tell us that Jose Mourinho had told the club he was taking the Europa League trophy on tour with the team to America an the Football Association had taken the Charity Shield back as the next game for it will be played soon, but normally any trophies the first team had won during that season would be there available to take photos with. 

After taking the photos we went into the first room which was absolutely full of trophies, what we didn’t know until Jason told us was that the whole room was full of trophies that the youth teams had won, none of the trophies were what the first team had won, which absolutely blew me away. The talent for the club is, of course, incredible, but that room really showed that the talent starts right at the beginning as children and they just grow to produce a strong first team, Marcus Rashford is a prime example of this within the club.

During the tour around the museum Jason told us all about different memorabilia and stories behind them. He also told us a few interesting facts, such as the museum was first opened in 1986, however Pele opened the current museum in 1998 and it is now one of the biggest football museums in the world with over 350,000 visitors each year! He also told us Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager of the club for 26 years and in that time he won 38 trophies, which is an absolute unbelievable achievement.

Being able to experience the museum alongside someone who knew background stories of certain things, knew the players included and knew more history than any of us was amazing. We not only got to see everything on show, we also got told stories about it and it was all that little bit more special. You can attend the museum as and when you please however you would be walking around by yourself, you can buy commentary which is available in numerous different languages however, for me, that personal touch of having a personal tour guide for just myself and my guests made it feel like an even more intimate and special occasion. 

After the full tour of the museum, which in itself was amazing, we were then onto part two of the day… The stadium tour! We were taken up into the stands first, where Jason proceeded to tell us that they were currently having work done to allow more access for wheelchair users, they have added 350 spaces which are being finished currently before the new season, however these seats will be multi-purpose, they can be used for either wheelchairs or as regular seats. If all 350 spaces are used for wheelchairs the stadium is only losing 1,000 seats, which in reality is amazing. I think for a club like Manchester United to take that step and  think about other fans and not the money of those extra 1,000 seats is something very admirable.IMG_8421

When we were in the stands, there were 3 grounds men working on the pitch to make sure it is in the best possible condition for the beginning of the season which is fast approaching! The grounds men told us there are 24 sprinklers across the pitch to keep it healthy, as well as underground heating and water recycling, all of these combined have meant that the club have won best ground, best staff, best pitch etc numerous times, looking at the pitch and the hard work done in the time we were there shows exactly why they have won so many awards.

We were then taken down to the changing rooms, where we were allowed in the home and away dressing rooms, on our own meaning we got perfect shots of the room and with any shirts we wanted photos with and overall it was something you wouldn’t ever imagine you could experience.

IMG_8264

IMG_8267

Once we had taken all of our photos and just enjoyed the moment of being in the changing rooms amongst some incredible players playing shirts we were taken down the new tunnel and down onto pitch side.

IMG_8271  IMG_8275

The view of Old Trafford as you come out of that tunnel is unreal, so I can’t imagine just how special it would be if that ground was full of fans chanting, singing and cheering for you.

IMG_8276

Next on the tour was the ‘dug outs’ that aren’t actually dug out, they’re actually raised! We were told these were raised due to Sir Alex Ferguson wanting them raised, which is another interesting fact we were given. We had the honour of being able to sit in the seats and enjoy the moment, again exclusively just our group and nobody else. 

After being shown around the whole of the ground, we were then taken onto the box corridor, we saw so many different boxes, all of which were gorgeous, full of food, drinks, TV’s and honestly just gorgeous with an unreal view of the pitch.

IMG_8296

Honestly this is the moment I was absolutely blown away, we got taken to the one and the only Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s box! It may not seem special, but to people who are massive Manchester United fans, this was a moment you could only dream of. Being taken into this box and being able to sit down and just enjoy the luxury of this area, something I could only dream of being able to do.

IMG_8291

Whilst in Inbrahimovic’s box, Jason brought out a massive box, we honestly had no idea that he was going to do this at all. In the box was absolutely loads of old playing shirts and playing football boots that had been worn and the players gave to the club for the fans to experience, which was a lovely gesture. The box included Rio Ferdinand’s boots, Nemanja Vidic’s boots, David De Gea’s gloves and the one and only David Beckham’s shirt as well as so so much more. 

IMG_8305 IMG_8302  IMG_8301

Not only were we able to look and take photos but Jason allowed us to try anything on that we wanted to. So I got to try on the shirt that David Beckham had previously worn when he was at the club and to me, that just blew my mind. Being a Manchester United fan and being able to wear the David Beckham’s worn shirt was just honestly unreal, I was completely speechless, I really was. That was something I could only dream of happening, so being surprised with that was the best feeling possible for all of us there.

IMG_8328  IMG_8339

Overall, the whole day was something I could only of imagined being able to experience, whether you are a Manchester United fan or not, I know you would absolutely love seeing the behind the scenes of the club and the hidden stories you might not know of. As the biggest football club in the world, you can honestly see why once you get there. It’s a club that is all about their fans, their family, not the money. Yes, don’t get me wrong, it is a business and they do make a lot of money, but their staff are so welcoming, so lovely and make you feel so comfortable, all they care about it allowing those who visit to leave with a smile on their face, being able to make every individuals visit something special and a day they won’t every forget. I for one, had the best day ever and I will never ever forget being able to experience an exclusive tour like that. Honestly if you have the opportunity to go on a tour of Old Trafford, I would definitely recommend it, it is a special day and I know you wouldn’t be disappointed.

A few quick thank you’s just before I finish. Firstly thank you to Manchester United as a whole, being able to experience the behind the scenes of your club, the untold stories, the hard work done by the staff that nobody gets to see, I not only enjoyed the experience, but I also learnt a lot about how much it takes to create a football pitch up to Premier League standard and how much hard work goes into creating the best possible stadium ready for the fans. It was a real eye-opener into a massive establishment and for that I am grateful. Also a massive thank you to all of the staff,  I really can’t say it enough, every single person you spoke to was lovely and made the day special by welcoming you and making you feel comfortable in their company. And of course, the biggest thank you has to go to Jason. Jason was the loveliest person ever, from the very first email he sent me, to saying our goodbyes when we were leaving he was just amazing. He knew so much about the club, the history, the memorabilia, the players, the behind the scenes, honestly what he didn’t know, wasn’t worth knowing. Thank you for arranging the day for us and making it the most special, unforgettable day possible for all of us involved.

IMG_8334

Also, just a little side note: This was a taster of their VIP experience. If you were to purchase this experience you can have so many extras added. You will be there in the evening after everybody else has left, so we were in our separate tour however there were other public tours taking place at the same time, if you were on this experience you would be there completely on your own with the staff with a bottle of champagne and food also. You would also have the opportunity to meet a player, past or present as well as the additional option of a skills session on the astro-turf so each experience is personally catered to you and your group and whatever you would love and enjoy the most. For me, this taster was unreal and anyone who experiences the full day would have the best time, honestly an unforgettable experience that I think everyone needs to have the chance to do and see.

Review: Gearbest Hair Straightening Brush

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Lovelies!

I am actually a little nervous to post this if I am honest because this is the first time I am reviewing a product with nothing positive to say about it, which is a little upsetting! I was lucky enough to be sent a load of goodies from the guys over at Gearbest which I have wrote about in a couple posts before and for the most, I have loved everything they have sent me, apart from one thing and today I am going to share with you why I didn’t like their hair straightening brush!

So I have been seeing these brushes everywhere recently and I have always wanted to see if they actually work, so when I seen Gearbest had sent me one I was super excited to try it out because if it worked it would make my life so much easier instead of having to sit straightening my hair which would take 10 times longer than using the brush. So here is the product I received:

IMG_8238

It states a couple things, but the thing that stood out most for me was it is for all hair types. For me, my natural hair is super curly and sometimes frizzy so finding a product that is for all types of course is ideal. So here is the product itself out of the box:

IMG_8240

So I went ahead and started ‘straightening’ my hair. So here is a little before and after for you guys:

IMG_8239 IMG_8241

As you can see, the brush didn’t really straighten my hair at all. If anything it just pulled the curls out and made it even more frizzy than it originally was. 

I have never had to write a review where I have nothing positive to say but with this product I can’t think of any positives, only negatives. It made my hair feel dry and damaged, it made my hair frizzy not straight and it just didn’t do what it claimed to do which was straighten my hair.

Overall I have loved most products I have been sent from Gearbest but this product is not good at all. I wouldn’t recommend it. I don’t know if anybody else has had this problem with this product or if it is just me, but I am super upset and disappointed by it.

I never write horrible reviews, I am 100% honest however I do normally find some positives in every product I receive but with this one I just couldn’t. I like to be honest with my readers so you don’t end up spending money on products that aren’t worth it. I hope you guys can respect the fact I have been I honest.

Thank you for reading! See you all in my next post!

Suffering With Depression and Anxiety

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Lovelies!

Today I’m going to talk about a serious matter, I know it’s a lot different from my usual posts but I feel like telling my story may be able to help someone and even if it only helps 1 of you I feel like that’s a great thing.

Throughout the past 6 months my family and I have been through a lot of things. Most of which isn’t my story to tell and I don’t want to really talk about that part of my life. However the series of things that happened last year lead me to be feeling really not myself at all. I was struggling to get to sleep, then when I was actually asleep I’d sleep for up to 15 hours at a time, I’d get angry really quickly and easily over little things, I’d cry a lot and be upset over things that shouldn’t upset me and I was just not motivated in any way, shape or form. Very quickly my boyfriend, my mom and I realised something just wasn’t right and therefore I was booked a doctors appointment to find out what exactly is going on.

I seen my doctor and we did a couple of tests and questionnaires where she decided I had moderate to severe depression as well as anxiety. I was given tablets to take which were a mix of antidepressants and sleeping tablets and she referred me to a councilor.

At the moment I’m okay, I’m still not 100% and I probably won’t be for a while yet, but I am feeling a lot better than I was, I think that’s mainly due to the fact I have actually spoke to someone and opened up rather than keeping everything to myself and letting it build up.

I have such an incredible set of people around me who have kept me strong and helped me through everything and without them I couldn’t have got through it. If there is one thing I would suggest to anyone who isn’t feeling them self it would be to talk to someone. Whether it’s your parents, your partner, your friend or even a doctor, I really do think talking to someone helps you a lot. 

For me I am not writing this post for sympathy, not at all. I’m writing this post because I feel like with what I’ve went through I’ve learnt a lot. At one point I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone, I couldn’t trust anyone, but now looking back that was never ever the case. So this post is mainly for you guys to know I have been through some horrible things and that’s why I haven’t posted as much as I would like to have, but also to say if any of you feel how I felt before where I couldn’t talk to anyone, just know you can. Even if you don’t want to talk to your parents or friends or anyone, my inbox and my email is always open. I know just how hard it was, so if I can help just one person to open up, to get help and to feel better then I feel like I’ve done what I wanted to do. 

I’m not the biggest blogger or social media influence don’t get me wrong, but I do have quite a large following and if I can reach out to just one person across my blog or social media and help you, I feel like that’s all I want to come from this.

I know just how hard it is to open up and to admit there is a problem, I fought with myself for so long not wanting to tell anyone how I felt, not wanting anyone to click on that I’m not okay, sooner or later I knew someone would realise because I just wasn’t myself. I wasn’t motivated to do anything, I didn’t even want to blog even though it’s my favourite thing to do. I wouldn’t wake up early like I used to, I’d sleep all day if I could. I was getting easily angry and annoyed at little things that normally I would laugh at or ignore, again this just wasn’t me at all. My boyfriend started slowly but surely noticing and asked me if I was okay and I knew he was starting to see that I just wasn’t okay. 

Eventually I decided to do something about it. I wasn’t happy, I wasn’t someone people would want to be around and I just wasn’t me. I felt like if I didn’t get help and admit I wasn’t okay, I’d lose people around me because I was argumentative and angry and upset and honestly I was just a horrible person to be around I really was. When I went to the doctor I ended up crying a lot and explaining things I probably would never imagine telling anyone but now I’ve done it I am so glad I have because getting it off my chest really has helped me. Of course I’m not there yet, but soon I will be my usual happy self and I can’t wait to reach that point again.

I am super grateful to my boyfriend and my family and friends because without them I don’t know where I’d be right now, I just know I’d be feeling as bad or worse than I was before. I really wasn’t a nice person to be around but I had a bunch of strong people around me who stuck by my side and helped me rather than ignoring how much pain I was in. 

Mental illness isn’t something people talk about, in fact I’ve realised that a lot of people shy away from talking about it. This shouldn’t be that way. Just because you can’t see an illness it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Whether that’s depression or anxiety or any other mental illness, it is there and it’s a real problem and it needs to be spoke about. People don’t truly know what a mental illness is because people would rather ignore it than talk about it and to me that’s really sad. I’ve decided to post this not because I want sympathy or anything like that, I want people to talk about mental illness whether it’s happening to you or maybe someone you know, mental illness effects a lot of people. In fact you probably know someone who’s suffering with a mental illness, probably in silence because they’re too scared in case they get judged. I find it so sad that that’s the reality we live in. 

I’m not proud of my illness but I’m proud that I’ve overcome what I’ve been through and I’m proud that I didn’t let it beat me. I want people to know that if you feel like you’re struggling, you are not alone. You have people around you who will help you and work with you to get yourself better. Never feel like you can’t open up and talk to someone, as I said if you don’t want to talk to someone at home, talk to a friend, if not inbox me or email me and at least you can have that weight lifted off your shoulders to talk to someone and open up. I would never judge anyone for suffering with an illness because I understand how it feels. 

I really hope this post helps someone to either understand mental illness is a thing and it needs to be talked about otherwise more and more people will suffer in silence and honestly it is the worst feeling possible.

Thank you for reading this different post about everything and thank you for hopefully not judging me. I know it’s long and I’ve probably repeated myself a bunch of times but this post is completely unedited, it is straight from the heart, straight from my notes on my phone where I wrote it all and I am super nervous about posting this so please be kind. I haven’t edited it because I wanted it to be 100% raw and real for you guys. I hope this will help at least one of you. Please do not forget my inbox on Twitter and Instagram and my emails are open for any of you who want to talk about anything.

Again, thank you for reading.

Review: ChinUp Mask

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey lovelies!

So today I am reviewing a product that I was a little skeptical about at first. I didn’t know if it would work and honestly I didn’t have much hope for it. However I am a million percent surprised pleasantly I may add! I was sent a ‘ChinUp Mask’ that claims to be a non surgical way of getting rid of your double chin! Of course I thought it sounded way too good to be true! But I have used it a couple of times now and I feel like I can see a difference. Just a little side note with me moving out and decorating and all of that jazz my mask is currently boxed up with my belongings so I can’t get any photos of it so all of the photos used in this post are directly from the ChinUp Mask website: https://chinupmask.com/.

IMG_8626

In all honesty I haven’t used this product in nearly 2 weeks so my face has probably reversed back to how it was before, however when I was using it I could see the difference. The product claims four things:

  • Slimming: Accelerates metabolism and boosts lymphatic system. Helps to reduce fat.
  • Lifting: Reshapes the facial contours and delivers long term firming results.
  • Contouring: Performs skin tightening and restores loose and sagging skin.
  • Moisturising: Gives immediate relief to dry and hydrated skin. Defends against visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

And overall I would say the mask did do all of these things for me when I was using it but like most products once you stop using it the affects will probably reverse and go back to normal. However if you used this product continuously I think it would work better than with me taking a longish break between uses.

Of course being non surgical means it isn’t the biggest difference possible from before and after however if you continue to use it I feel like he difference will definitely be more noticeable! I could notice the difference when I was using it but as I said, without using it for two weeks I feel like it’s gone back to how it was before I used it. I recommend this product I really do, I think everyone is a little insecure about their double chin but this product really does work and I honestly think it is worth the money you pay rather than having surgery! I haven’t included any before or after pictures as I don’t feel like I’ve been using it long enough or thorough enough to get a decent enough photo, however I’m going to do an update post maybe in 2/3 weeks with photos of before and after so you guys can see just how good this product is!

I think the price is super reasonable at £29.95 for two masks, you can find that on this link here: https://chinupmask.com/#buy, I think it is worth every penny. I, the same as many, are insecure about my double chin, but this really has helped me. I’m not just saying that, I truly mean it. I think the first couple of times I used it I didn’t really see much difference, but I’ve used it 2/3 times now and I’m starting to notice it.

It is super simple to use, below is the 8 simple steps to getting rid of your double chin without surgery with this product and honestly I think the price and the simplicity are the main factors into definitely using this product. You can get it super cheap, it works super easily and your insecurity of your double chin will just fade away the more you use this product.

IMG_8629

For me the only negative about this product is that if you do stop using it for any reason I feel like your skin just goes back to how it was before, maybe that is just me but that’s what I feel like happened with me. If you use it more thoroughly you can definitely start seeing the difference almost immediately however as I said, I haven’t used it in nearly 2 weeks whilst it has been boxed away whilst we decorate and it hasn’t lasted this long. Apart from that I have nothing bad to say about the product. It does work, it is a lot cheaper than surgery and the affects kick in immediately so I have no complaints whatsoever. It is also so simple to use so when you decide to have a night in front of the TV you can stick it on and not mess with it again until you’re ready to take it off.

If you are a little insecure about that double chin just like a lot of us, definitely try this product out from: https://chinupmask.com/ because I highly recommend it!

Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to be sent this product, which I am super grateful for so thank you to the guys from ChinUp Mask for contacting me and allowing me to use this incredible product. All opinions are my own and 100% honest. I would not recommend something to you guys without 100% believing in it myself first! I also want to thank ChinUp Mask for being understanding with the time it has taken to get this post up.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed my post, I am super busy lately with things in my personal life so my updates have been slow and not as often, but I promise soon I will tell you all about why I haven’t been myself and hopefully you guys will understand why I haven’t been as active as I want to be or as I used to be! 

See you all in my next post!

Superdrug and Bodycare Haul

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Lovelies!

So me and my mom went to have a girls day out, nails, food and shopping and of course I couldn’t resist popping into Superdrug and Bodycare, which at the moment are two of my favourite shops. They have some incredible deals on right now, so I just couldn’t resist, so today I’m going to show you guys the products I picked up. Some are first time buys and some are products I have loved before so decided to pick them up again.

FullSizeRender.jpg

The first thing I brought is a repurchase, it is the MUA Skin Define Hydro foundation. This time I brought it in a shade lighter, Ivory as the one I had before was slightly too dark for me. This foundation is a light to medium coverage, it isn’t the best foundation however for my skin type which is really dry, it works well for me so I’ve repurchased it until I can find something which is better coverage but fits my skin type. 

IMG_8253.JPG

The next product I brought is a brand new product from Sleek, it is their new plumping lip product, which I brought in Colossal Coral. I actually tried this on when I got home and it was stinging my lips so I don’t think I’ll be using it much at all because it actually hurt quite a bit. However the colour is lovely! 

IMG_8246.JPG

The next product I brought is this technic mega mattes eyeshadow palette, I have never used any technic products before so I thought I would pick this up and try it out.

IMG_8249.JPG

The next product is another technic product, it is these contour stix. They are cream contour sticks and they look super pretty so can’t wait to try them!

  IMG_8266

The next product is this MUA Mega Volume mascara. If you have been following my blog you will know by now MUA is one of my favourite brands, they have some incredible products however I have never actually tried their mascara so I thought I would pick one up and try it.

IMG_8247

These next products, again new things I have never tried, 2 face masks and 1 hair mask. I am loving face masks at the minute as my skin is getting better by using them, so I thought I would pick up a couple I have never tried before. Similarly, I have heard great reviews about hair masks so I thought why not pick one up and try it.

IMG_8251

 The final product was just a tube of Bepanthen which is a little boring but this cream is incredible for tattoos so of course I picked one up purely to put on my new tattoo.

IMG_8250.JPG

So that is everything I picked up on my mini haul, all of these products were reasonably cheap and I can’t wait to try them all out. If you want a review on some or all of these products do let me know so I can write those for you.

I will see you all very soon in my next post!

Review: Avon Products

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Lovelies!

I am finally back! If you haven’t read my last post which was a little update on why I haven’t been posting, please check it out. I have a post today and another planned for possibly tomorrow or Monday as well as a couple reviews and bits and pieces I have planned too. I also have a couple of posts which are a little serious, something totally different to what I normally post and I can’t wait to get those up for you guys too.

However, onto today’s post, I wanted to bring to you a review of Avon products I have tried and tested over the past couple of months, some products I’ve been using for years so I feel like my opinions will be accurate reviews for you guys if you’re interested in maybe using some of their products. Just to prewarn you guys, this post is pretty long so grab a cuppa and some biscuits!

The first product I want to talk to you about is one of my most recent purchases which is their new matte lipstick line. They have claimed that it is ‘more matte than mac’ so I decided to buy one to put it to the test. I went for the colour Mauve Matters.

IMG_8011 IMG_8012

It looked like a really nice colour in the brochure and it didn’t disappoint when it arrived.

IMG_8013

I am really into reds and pinks at the moment so I fell in love when this arrived! Below I swatched it for you guys, one without the flash on the left and one with the flash on the right. Both look incredible.

IMG_8008 IMG_8009 

I am honestly impressed with this lipstick. It is such a good consistency, it doesn’t dry out your lips whatsoever and I just really do love it. I have ate and drank whilst wearing it and it has passed both of those tests, I really do think they have created an amazing product here. It definitely lives up to my expectations and if you want a cheaper alternative to Mac this product is perfect for that. I brought this for £5.50, which is currently their offer price before it goes to it’s regular price of £8. Absolute bargain and I definitely think you guys should try it out, especially whilst it is so cheap!

 The next product is this Moroccan Argan Oil leave in treatment.

IMG_8016 IMG_8017

This is probably the best hair product I have ever used. My hair is pretty long now and every 3 months I have it dyed blonde, I don’t use bleach, my hair dresser only uses a tint which is not as damaging. Even though bleach isn’t used on my hair I still need to keep my hair in good condition, so when I seen Avon selling this, after hearing incredible reviews about Moroccan argon oil, I decided to try it out and I am so happy I did! It’s an incredible £5.50, however as I write this there is a huge sale on and it is only £3.30 and to me, a product that will keep your hair healthy and shiny is worth that and more. I think for such a cheap product it really does do wonders for your hair and I definitely recommend it, whether your hair is damaged or not this product really does keep your hair in great condition. I use it every 2/3 days when I wash my hair, I pump it 3 times and run it through the length of my hair whilst it’s still wet, it doesn’t make it look greasy like some products, it just leaves it looking shiny and healthy. One thing I will say is don’t expect to see results after using it just once, it does a take a couple times before you see results. I’ve been using it for probably 3 or 4 months now, I’m onto my second bottle, so as you can see it lasts a very long time and my hair is in the best condition is has ever been. My hair was never damaged but I feel like using this really has made a huge noticeable difference.

The next products I want to tell you guys about are the matching Moroccan Argon Oil shampoo and conditioner.

 These products work so well along side the leave in treatment. All 3 products have contributed to my hair being the best it has ever been. There isn’t really much to say about them as they’re normal shampoo and conditioner but along side the leave in treatment they work really well and I definitely recommend trying them if you’re looking for a new shampoo and conditioner to add to your hair care routine. Normally they are £2.80 each, however as I write this they are only £1.65 which is an absolute bargain!

This next product I am only briefly mentioning as I don’t really like it at all. It is the Big & Daring volume mascara.

I don’t like writing negative reviews but this product is not nice at all. As you can see in the picture it doesn’t close properly meaning it dried out ridiculously quick. It is also really clumpy even before you open it. It’s regularly £8.50, however it is now currently £5. But I wouldn’t recommend it at all.

The next product is this Magi X face perfector.

I absolutely love this product. It is £10.50, which is slightly more expensive than most products in this post, however for me it is definitely worth it. It is such a good primer and it lasts all day. I’ve had this around 6 or 7 months and still have some left. It’s such a good product you don’t need too much of it so that’s probably why it has lasted me so long. If you are looking for a good primer then I definitely suggest trying this one.

The product on my list is this ColorTrend concealer + correcteur.

I use this mainly to line my eyebrows and clean them up, I don’t really use it to conceal. I used to use it to conceal and it was actually really good, however I much prefer liquid concealer rather than stick concealer. I think for me, this is a really good product, it is really creamy and easy to use and definitely works whether you use it to conceal or to tidy up your brows like I do.

From the above picture you can also see it is pretty brightening. That photo was taken with the flash on. I really do think for £3 it is a bargain. There is better concealers out, like the Collection Last Perfection concealer which is only £1.19 more and definitely a lot better and that’s why I no longer use this concealer as a concealer, but for tidying up your brows or eyeliner it is ideal for sure.

The next product is this glimmerstick brow definer, which mine is in blonde.

For me this product is not bad but not the best either. It does work well, however it is so pigmented and creamy that sometimes it is really hard to work with. This is £6 and to me that is way too much for what you’re getting. I much prefer Collection’s Brow Kit, which is only £3.99 where you get 3 shades and a brow gel. It does the job but for me this product is too expensive compared to other good quality brow products on the market.

I have a couple other Avon products that I am currently testing out so I will probably do a follow up post with those other products. I hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you hopefully very soon for my next post!
