9 Down : 83 To Go…

Today is a monochrome kinda day and there will be quite a few of these, I just love Black and white. My top and skirt are from FOREVER NEW, they are a few years old but you can find similar everywhere. The sandals are my Mum’s, she is visiting from U.K and is somewhat doubtful of my 33 items challenge to say the least. The hat I picked up from Kmart recently, my shades are from Cotton:On and my bracelet as always is Pandora.

I know it’s pretty basic but I like it. The top is a sheer fabric that air dries in about 15 minutes and does not crease, it’s all I could wish for in an item of clothing. I’m glad it’s nice and sunny here so my laundry has a fast turn around, I wonder how hard it is in the Winter when it is not so easy to wash and dry clothing so frequently??

For Makeup today I’m keeping things simple with Arbonne CC Cream, M.A.C Matte Bronze Bronzer and Lancome Hypnose Mascara

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday. If you have a capsule wardrobe please leave me a comment so I can come check it out. I’m loving the blog posts and YouTube videos I have found so far, very inspirational.

Thanks for reading and I’ll speak soon. As always Nicola x

Not Just Another CC Cream…

 Processed with VSCOcam with m5 preset

Arbonne is a new find for me, I’d heard about it here and there but as a firm beauty hall junkie I never really gave it a shot, until I had a test of the RE9 Advanced Set, Extra Moisture skin care and the arbonne intelligence CC CREAM and now I’m a complete convert.

I have tried my fair share of skin care (try saying that 5 times in a row!) and my standards are pretty high. I like a different day cream to night cream, I need a lightweight, good under makeup, high spf day cream and a thick, hydrating wonder cream at night. I love a serum as my skin is dehydrated and I have a 16 month old so hard working eye cream is a must. This set is everything I need and more and I saw a noticeable difference in how soft my skin felt after about a week. The day cream and the eye cream are my favourite 2 products I felt they gave the most dramatic results on my skin. You can get sample packs which are ideal, especially if you are unsure which range would be the best fit for your skin’s needs. The sets would make a wonderful gift for the women in your life or if someone doesn’t know what to get for you this is a fantastic suggestion

In the CC Cream I am the fairest shade and even that looks pretty dark when you squeeze it out, but once you blend it in it just leaves a beautiful tint which adapts to your individual skin tone. It is a light coverage and has an Spf of 20 so perfect for a day time base. It gives a luminous but matte finish on it’s own and is perfect as a primer to make any fuller coverage foundation go on more evenly for a perfect base. It truly is skincare meets cosmetics and gives a beautiful, healthy looking complexion.

The whole company does not test on animals and is vegan friendly, a massive bonus. 

Have you tried anything from Arbonne? What would you recommend?

Thanks for reading my little review, talk to you soon
