Review - L'Oreal Hydro Genius

I know i'm late on the bandwagon with this but forgive me!!

I picked this up about three months ago now when I went to Manchester and after reading all the bloggers reviews on it I knew it was something I needed. I have not read one bad review about this however (here comes the unpopular opinion)..... I cant say i'm over the moon about this at all, it really was a disappointment. I have tried it now for maybe a month or so and I really just cannot see the fuss about this. I feel like it dries my skin out not hydrate it.

I paid £7.99 for this 250ml bottle with is quite a good amount considering you only need one or two pumps. It also claims to have aloe water in it which is great for calming the skin and also hydrating. I don't know if it's just my skin or what but I really wasn't impressed and cant see what the fuss is about at all. I feel like its quite a sticky product and dries into the skin extremely quick which is something I definitely don't like in a moisturiser, especially for my nighttime routine. I will give it another go but for now its not one of my go to's.

What are your thoughts on this product?

Back In Business

Well hello everyone, i'm sure you've probably forgotten about me its been that long. I'm so sorry i've been away all this time. I've been bridesmaid, been part of Hurricane Irma in the Dominican and unfortunately throughout it all my mental health has played a bit part in my life, so I thought my best way to deal with it all is cut ties with everything so I had to take a break.

I'm back now and ready for this more than ever. I will try my best to get back on schedule but for now you'll have to bear with me. I'll be reviewing a few products that i'm sure you've already seen loads of times before but yano what I don't care, I want to share my views haha.

So yes whilst i've been away I flew to Northern Ireland for one of my best friends wedding in a stunning place called Lough Erne. I had so much fun and it really cheered me up. I was also able to spend a couple of days with my boyfriend which is so nice after 2 months of being apart. It's tough!!
Then at the end of August we set off on our travels to the Dominican Republic for two weeks. This was paradise! (bar hurricane Irma joining us). The hotel was stunning and the staff were so welcoming. I ate so much food that I now need to be on a diet for at least 6 years!!! I recommend the Dominican to everyone!

I havn't actually done a massive amount of shopping whilst i've been off' but i've just booked New York for Christmas with Ryan which I am over excited about so Sephora will deffo be hit hard. I hardly have any clothes here after moving back from Belfast. I can't wait to hit the high street, esp Primark and see what gorgeous pieces I can pick up. Don't worry I may do a little haul on here or over on my IG. I also need a lot more clothes for work. I never know what to wear. I find it so hard to pick up stunning stylish pieces for work and also working out what goes with tights haha you certainly ain't gonna catch me in bear legs in autumn!!!
So that is all still to come.

How have you been? Anything exciting been happening?
So happy to be back!
Speak soon.

Sunday Catch Up - But On A Monday

Well hello there everyone, I'm sure you're wondering where I've been. So over the past 4 months I have been living in the 1920's. I've had NO WIFI!!! Obviously I can't afford to go and sit in Starbucks everyday so I just decided to have a complete break from technology and to be honest I quite enjoyed it. I also had a few mental health problems while I was away so I guess the timing worked our rather well. However whilst being away for so long I really missed the whole blogging scene. I've missed meeting new people through the Twitter chats or getting to know people on Instagram. I now feel like everyone has forgotten about me so this is a post to pretty much say
HELLO and I am back again haha. It's taking me a while to get through everything because I have missed so much so its going to be a while until I start posting again but please please please send me your links and start chatting to me again on twitter or come say hello. I have missed you all so much. I hope you all understand. Hopefully see you in a twitter chat or online soon.

Love Natalie xx
