Alex S X Primark Beauty - first impressions

The latest highstreet beauty range to hit the market, is from none other than Primark- offering targeted products at bargain prices, so of course I was intrigued. As someone who has been more invested in my skincare routine in the last couple of years, but not wanting to spend lots on new products I wanted to give this range a try for myself. This premium skincare has been developed in collaboration with Alessandra Steinherr, one of the beauty industry's most renowned editors and skincare experts. With products designed to target specific skin concerns rather than skin types, the range comprises of 20 skincare goodies, all coming in at £5 or under. One of the main reasons I was so intrigued by this collaboration, is that Primark have enlisted a true expert, giving the products industry standard creditials and means this isn't just another low budget range that offers no real benefits. Also rather than just launching in store, each product and its benefits have been explained by its creator - giving consumers confidence to buy and an understanding of what each product has been designed for.

The products are split into five collections within the range, each is designed to target specific skin concerns:
Sleep Spa - Products that work whilst you sleep to leave skin feeling plumped, hydrated and restored.
Pore Balance - This range gently purifies and calms the skin, leaving it smooth and hydrated.
Plump & Glow - A plumping range that leaves skin with a fresh youthful appearance.
Maximum Moisture - For skin that needs a moisture surge, this range will be like a cool glass of water for the skin.
Pollution Solution - A range for city skin that counteracts some of the external factors our skin faces on a daily basis.

The first thing I want to discuss is the packaging - a much more simple and chic design than I ever expected from Primark. A clean white bottle/tube with Alessandra Steinherr's signature and a short description of the products benefits, along with a colour coded stripe which ties back to the specific skin concern that it is intended to benefit. Very simple and actually looks a lot more expensive than its under £5 price point, but also like a proper cohesive collection especially when it is all merchandised together in store.

For this review I chose four products to try initially, and below are my first impressions...

Alex S X Primark Beauty - first impressions | Daily skin starter & Face Mask

Pollution Solution - Daily skin starter £5
This was my gamble product, I wasn't in need of a "priming" product but thought anything that boasts pollution protection, in this day and age was worth a try. A nice cooling gel like formulation, a little like hand sanitizer, in a pump dispenser that gave just the right amount of product needed. Easy to apply, glides on to the skin without feeling sticky and absorbs quickly. I have worn both alone on top of my usual moisturiser as well as under makeup as a priming base - not 100% sure it has affected my makeup application but always good to know my skin has some protection underneath my CC cream. A nice to have product but not sure I would repurchase, as unlike the others I haven't found it added much to my skincare routine.

Pore Balance - Face Mask £5
I was probably most excited about this product, as it contains clay & charcoal, two ingredients that my skin really reacts well to and I love a pampering face pack on a Sunday. First of all I really like the packaging, a great pump dispenser, giving control as a little goes a long way - 100ml has lasted ages even when used twice a week. The mask itself was smooth to apply and gave good coverage. Once applied it left my face with a gentle tingling sensation and after 10 minutes washed off easily, with a clean muslin face cloth. Afterwards my skin felt taught, smooth and really clean. My skin responds well to a clay mask, it helps to deep clean my skin without drying it out and usually helps to keep pimples at bay and this mask has done just that. Will definitely be buying a second tube once mine finally runs out.

Alex S X Primark Beauty - first impressions | Sleep Mask & Eye Mask

Sleep spa - Face Mask £5
A hydrating, overnight treatment for the face, that works to plump, smooth & restore skin whilst you sleep. Good sized 50ml tube with a pump dispenser, containing an almost milky/gel like consistency cream (hard to describe!). Applies well although a little sticky on the skin, but absorbs quickly and leaves you with a healthy glow. My skin has felt plumped and hydrated after each use and I am already onto my second tube! This has been my favourite product in the range so far, offering something I haven't seen before, and that actually has made a difference to my skin - I apply after my regular moisturiser before bed and wake feeling refreshed. I have also seen a difference in my makeup after using this mask, it seems to give my skin a softer base to apply my CC cream or foundation to.

Sleep Spa - Eye Mask £4
An easy addition to my night time skincare, this little gel formula eye treatment, offers a cooling experience for tired eyes. With just one pump I was able to apply on both eyes, dabbing into my under eye area and gentle onto the lids. I was impressed to see a small difference after just one application, with both eyes seeming a little less puffy. As I don't use this every night, this small tube will last for ages, making it great value for money. Still undecided if I will be repurchasing or not, but would recommend especially if you suffer from tried puffy eyes on a regular basis.

--
After testing these products out for about six weeks (the range launched in October 2018, but it took me a while to track it down... Fosse Park, Leicester has it in stock now), I would highly recommend trying this range, especially if you dont want to spend lots finding the right products for your skin - I have always be a little dubious about cheap beauty products but as I said earlier in this post, having an expert behind the products really gave me confidence to use them. I will be going back to get a few more options next month, especially interested in trying the sheet masks and the micellar water - let me know in the comments below if there are any products in particular you would like me to try & review?

What better way to start the year, than to share my tips on how to stay chic & cosy during the winter. The key item for the season has to be the coat - whether you go for a trench, parka, peacoat, aviator or something a little more classic, this staple will see you through everyday. Although the UK has had a fairly mild winter so far, experts are predicting the cold is coming so let's get prepared with my top ten tips:

10 Ways to stay Chic & Cosy this Winter
1. Be playful with faux fur
2. Layer up your outerwear - throw on a coat over your favourite leather jacket
3. Choose a statement coat - go for a fun print or bold colour
4. Go for a coat with beautiful detailing
5. Keep things simple
6. Mix up the textures in your outfit - leather, suede and fur are perfect additions
7. Add a bold pop of colour
8. Layer up on cosy accessories - gloves and scarves
9. Wear a fabulous hat - my personal favourites are a bobble or a classic fedora
10. If in doubt add on a plaid/tartan scarf - they brighten up any wintery day outfit

So there we are, which tip will you be embracing this winter?

Mint Velvet: My Top Picks for Autumn

Double breasted coat | Grey wave stripe knit | Ava print shirt | Star print blouse | Elyse printed midi skirt | Alicia print/spot midi dress
Mia suede boots | Alex print shirt dress | Jade badge knit | Allie stripe trainer | Cerise blocked knit
Blush cashmere hoodie & joggers

Seems like forever since I did a wishlist post, so thought I would share my must have pieces from Mint Velvet for Autumn 2018.
*Worth noting I do work in-store for Mint Velvet, but all opinions and selections in this post are my own, as I truly love the product and wanted to share my favourites with you.

 One of my favourite pieces for the season, is this statement pink coat. Its a gorgeous fit and the boldest colour...barbie eat your heart out! I love the idea of throwing it on over a really classic monochrome outfit and letting the coat do all the talking.

I am torn between my three knitwear picks - love them all but need to choose one to get for uniform! The grey one is classic but with a great splash of colour on and would look great teamed with skinny jeans as well as a skirt. The cerise blocked knit is unusual as the front/back/sleeves are all different colours but it works so well together and I have had my eye on this for a while now. Finally the wild card, is the jade badge knit, I love the green colour and the badging detail on the sleeve, but it is not my usual colour of choice so I dont know if this would be too far out of my comfort zone - I am however trying to push my fashion boundaries so this could be perfect.
Which would you choose?

One thing I love about Mint Velvet is their prints - so many this season and I love the way they combine prints to create something new and a little different. The Ava print blouse is covered in abstract stars and is a gorgeous combination of navy and blush pink, perfect teamed with denim. Whilst the Alicia spot/print dress is great to team with ankle boots and your favourite leather jacket - showing how easy it is to mix prints if you stick to one colour palette, but doing it for you! However my "must have" would have to be the Elyse midi skirt - this split panel skirt combines a stripe with a bold floral and mixed with an aysemetric cut makes it a beautiful piece which looks phenomenal with knee high boots and a chunky knit.

Have chosen the star print blouse as part of my uniform allowance and love it so much. A great subtle classic print, jazzed up by the feminine lace panels. Perfect teamed with skinnies or a cord miniskirt and funky ankle boots. I have also opted for the Alex leopard print dress - have been waiting what seems like months for this to arrive and am so excited to wear. The most flattering dress on my curvy figure and the print is this beautiful "mermaid" leopard, a new palette of colours for me but gorgeous and amazing teamed with burgundy or black accessories. This print also comes in a blouse, halterneck top and a kimono, which can all be found at www.mintvelvet.co.uk.

 Who doesn't need loungewear? These are the snuggliest cashmere pieces and in the most gorgeous blush pink colour, perfect to snuggle up with a hot chocolate in style. I also love that attention to detail in the pieces - a touch of sparkle on the leg, a big cosy hood and my favourite....thumb holes.

And finally can't forget my feet....I love both of these options as they are so versitile. The Mia boots are a fab mix of suede and snakeprint in a deep shade of burgundy whilst the Allie trainers are a classic white style with a fresh pop of pink down the side. Both would look great styled with dresses, skirts or your favourite jeans.

What Fashion Week means to me

As a self confessed lover of fashion, fashion week (or as it probably should be called - fashion month) has always been an exciting time of the year, but over the last ten years, it has really changed for me....

As a fashion marketing student at university, I was obsessed with the whole event, and in an attempt to feel part of it attending as many London Fashion Weekends as I could, but in reality these events are not even remotely like the shows, more like the grown up equivalent of the Clothes Show but a way for me to be surrounded by other fashionistas and experience/buy into new brands. I especially became mesmerized by Mulberry - back in the days of Emma Hill I loved the brand, more specifically its aesthetic and quirky spin on the catwalk show (who else would feature gnomes or monsters). I even managed to track down campaign postcards & brand books on ebay from several of the collections and still love to flip through them, remembering the British brand in what I believe was their its heyday. With this interest became brand specific posts, rounding up details & inspirations, showcasing my favourite looks from the catwalk as well as lots of brand imagery. I really miss the whimsical brand shots Mulberry used to create - my favourite being from AW12, which was inspired by the Maurice Sendak’s book Where The Wild Things Are. Click here to view this campaign as well all my other Fashion Week content.

Once i graduated, these "show posts" became less and less as life took over, but also with the introduction of social media the shows became a lot more accessible so i didn't feel the need to write about them anymore. Until recently i still managed to write a couple of posts per season - usually for my favourite designers - the amazing Sophia Webster, shoe goddess extraordinaire and the gorgeously quirky Anya Hindmarch but since having a baby, these again have lapsed somewhat. I had planned to get back on the horse this season but after discovering that there would be no Sophia Webster presentation this year (imminent baby arrival trumps fashion) i haven't had as much enthusiasm.....but keep your eyes peeled as there may be a cheeky Anya Hindmarch round up, as i cannot resist her exquisite accessories.

So what now?

Whilst I have fallen out of love with the fashion week of old, I still enjoy the spectacle and if I ever got the opportunity to go to a show....you better believe I would be there with bells on!!! Wanting to be part of fashion week was a big part of my student days but was so exhausting, especially as i didn't live in London - and would have be even more so if i had actually gone to any shows....it seems like a glamorous event to attend but more and more in recent years, fashionistas have pulled back, to just a hand full of shows as it is an impossibly grueling week of basically running around London as no two shows are in the same location. With the technology innovations of recent years, with apps such as Twitter & Instagram, being able to watch other bloggers content has helped to relive this pressure and allows fashion to be enjoyed again and in some cases shopped instantly! #fastfashion #thefutureoffashion

For me Fashion week is now all about street style and taking inspiration from fabulous ladies to use in my own everyday styling. I find there is something very relaxing about scrolling through beautiful outfit imagery and using this to inspire me, especially whilst i have been finding my fashion groove again after having bubba.

So i will leave you with some of my favourite fashion week street style images, from the last few years....and let you consider
"What does Fashion Week mean to you?"
