Gemporia: Ratanakiri Zircon 9K Gold Ring Review [AD]

Hello everyone! I hope you had a lovely week! Today I'm very excited to be reviewing this beautiful 0.29ct Ratanakiri Zircon 9k Gold Ring that was very kindly sent to be by the lovely team at Gemporia. Until recently, I had never heard of Gemporia, however I was soon sold by their wide array of styles, gemstones, metals and designs, as well as the encouraging brand ethics behind the sourcing of those materials. Not only does the brand work closely with the communities where the gemstones are sourced, (the stone of this ring being from Cambodia - how cool is that?!) they also work to get actively involved in localised charities that support the health and education of those sourcing the materials. Influenced by this, the brands ethos stresses that "beautiful jewellery shouldn't cost the earth", which I think is a wonderful attitude to have (and is quite a clever slogan!). 

The prices are absolutely amazing for the carat weighting and precious metals used, yet the quality doesn't at all suffer which I think is absolutely admirable as it makes the luxury of fine jewellery a lot more accessible to those of us who would like to treat ourselves to something special, but can't afford to fork out serious dollar. Unfortunately, I'm not able to wear high-street jewellery as the high acidity in my skin means that I'm prone to getting green fingers (eww!), so I'm always on the hunt for good quality precious metals that are budget friendly, which is why I'm so excited that I've now discovered Gemporia and their fabulous range!

Cougar Beauty Products: Perfect Pout Lip Plumper [AD]

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a lovely week thus far! Today I have another product review for you, this time focusing on the 'Perfect Pout Volume and Shape Definition Lip Plumper' by Cougar Beauty Products. Since Kylie Jenner came on the scene I feel as though it's become almost 'trendy' to plump up your lips at least a little. I have to admit, I am definitely not one for lip plumping as it's all too much fuss for me, and I haven't had much success in the past. I always used to hate liquid/gloss methods of lip plumping as I could never deal with the way that type of product would make my lips feel - y'know, all tingly and like they're on fire? Nevertheless, when Cougar Beauty Products contacted me to see how I'd like their lip plumper, I thought I'd give it a try - and oh am I so glad that I did!

Lush Ultrabland Cleanser

Hey everyone! Today I'll be reviewing one of my all time favourites from Lush Cosmetics: Ultrabland facial cleanser. Described as an 'Ultra-simple and ultra-effective' emulsifying cleanser, Ultrabland's formula is inspired by an Ancient Greek formula for cold cream - possessing a thick, butter-like consistency and texture. Now, I do realise that this doesn't sound all too exciting in comparison to some of the brightly coloured, gorgeously-scented cleansers that Lush has to offer, but trust me - the simplicity of this cleanser is what I'd argue really makes it sing. Overall, Ultrabland facial cleanser possesses a mere ten ingredients... (what?!). Formulated from a variety of natural oils, alongside beeswax and honey which work to grip onto any dirt and make-up on your face, it is so easy to achieve a rich, nourishing cleanse. Due to it's incredible 100% natural ingredients list, you're able to remove even the most stubborn of waterproof mascaras and not suffer from tight and/or stripped skin as other powerful make-up removers can be known to induce. Rather, you're left with clean, plumper, healthier looking skin...
