My favorite award winning creative director from Birmingham’s Francesco group James Earnshaw was creating serious hair envy during his time at London Fashion Week via Instagram, working for fabulous hair tool brand cloud nine he helped create some effortless hair looks, perfect day to night styles. My favorite easy to wear hair stemmed from Emilio de la Morena’s show, created by cloud nine this easy slicked back root with fresh textured ends is perfect for lazy hair days or uncontrollable ends and easy to replicate with any hair length/thickness.

Perfection in a bottle?

I have been lusting over L’Oreal  Skin Perfection range since its hype back in July 2013 before its release in early September. Firstly its appealing pretty packaging makes it hard to miss on those crammed white shelves in Boots and you can envision it on your dresser before you have even chip and pinned. This collection is aimed at the 20-30 target market and promises to make your skin camera ready without the need for a whole lot of effort, what more could you want?

The product range aims to even tone, luminise, minimise pores and improve the texture of your skin. Having already tested out the fabulous face wipes which clear any ounce of make up and give your skin a soft silky feeling, i was intrigued as to how well the rest of the products work. I purchased the Correcting Day moisturizer and the Advanced Correcting Serum both designed to penetrate the skin and reduce pore visibility.

Just from my first application i can already see what fantastic quality the products really are, with just a small amount needed from both products your skin instantly feels silky and soft with no greasy residue or shiny appearance. It feels like a thirst clenching glass of water, a perfect base to apply your daily face.

So with my first few applications complete, this appears promising.
