Boots Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm Review

Hi you guys!
I've recently gone through a bit of a skincare infatuation. For my makeup to look great, my face has to be in good shape also! So I've been on the hunt for the perfect skincare routine to give me flawless, glowing skin so I don't feel the need to wear makeup (pffft as if that will ever happen). I came across the Boots Botanics range a little while ago and since it was on special offer, decided to give the hot cloth cleansing balm a go.

100 Follower Giveaway: $30 Firmoo Voucher

A week ago I surpassed 100 followers on both GFC and Bloglovin. I know that's not a huge number but it means the world to me, so when I was contacted by Firmoo, an online fashion glasses store, about receiving some vouchers for Vintage Cat Eye glasses I decided to resist the urge to be greedy and keep them for myself. Instead I thought "D'you what? I'll host a giveaway for them as a big thank you!" and that's what I'm doing.

Firmoo specialize in high-quality affordable eye-wear for every-use glasses as well as sunglasses. As one of the worlds most popular global eye-store (they have over 600k likes on facebook) they ship almost everywhere worldwide. 

This week I'm hosting a giveaway with FIVE winners. Each of you lovely winners will receive a $30 e-voucher to use at on a pair from their Vintage Cat Eye range. Click here to see the range. Oh and just so you know most of the styles are only $39 with some of the styles less than $20!! Please note: to apply for the giveaway you must be in the range of delivery. Check the countries they deliver to here.

Unless you've been living under a rock you'll know that the cat eye trend has been on the rise over the last year and is slowly taking over! The reason it's so popular I believe is due to its retro vintage feel. The great thing about these glasses is that you can choose a tinted lens so all you ladies with good eye sight can use the voucher for these frames to be used as sunglasses!

Some of my personal favourites from the range include:


All you have to do to enter is fill out the Rafflecopter form below to be with a chance. So what are you waiting for??? Hurry because the competition ends the 28th of May at 12:15pm.

Best of luck!!!

Week in Instagram

My finals start tomorrow, so what have I been doing? Procrastinating like crazy and instagramming like mad.....obviously!

Final year maths students / Audrey Hepburn / Procrastination station / Eye makeup /
My new motto to live by / Ketchup galore / Besties / Viva Le Revolution
My roots!!
So to avoid study I've been procrastinating like there's no tomorrow. Instead of study I've been doing my eyemakeup and taking lots of pictures of myself "studying". I also spent a night out with my best friends to "relieve"ourselves from the stress. I've come to the realisation I need to get to a hairdresser STAT! My roots have gone beyond a joke now.

Hair Care Favourites for bleached hair

I've been a faux blonde since I was 15 years old, give or take a few spells as a brunette so as to give my hair a break from the bleach. The one big problem with blonde is that it requires a lot or care and attention to keep it in good condition. I've made a list of my favourite go to products to fight frizz and dryness, keep the split ends at bay and create big hair!

Blank Canvas Cosmetics Eye Brushes E23 and 010

So today is a review of my brushes from the Irish brand Blank Canvas Cosmetics. I bought a few months after I bought their contour pallete, which i just loved. You can read my review of it here.
I'm always on the search for new brushes so i decided to go for the E23 Short Pencil brush and the 010 Small Blending brush (this brush has since been replaced with the E10 Small Socket blender with synthetic hair).

Updated twitter account

Hi guys!
So I've recently decided to change my twitter account. I'll still be keeping my personal account that I'm using now but I'm going to keep it purely for non makeup topics (e.g cats pics!!!) and my new twitter page will be purely makeup and blogging related. This is so that those that follow me on my personal twitter won't have to be bombarded with makeup tweets and those following my blogging twiter account won't have to be updated with maths related tweets and rants!

So here's a link to my twitter account purely related to all things TooManyFreckles.

Please feel free to follow me!

Dealing with Eczema: L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique Anti-Redness CC Cream

I've mentioned before that I've been suffering with eczema resulting in the skin around my right eye being very red......not an attractive look. While I was waiting for this redness to tone down I decided to buy the L'Oreal Paris Nude Magique CC Cream that targets the redness in the skin and calms it down. It was €15.39 for 50ml in Boots.

Dealing with Eczema: Evening Skincare Routine

Back in November I started to suffer from eczema on my right eye and all over my mouth. It was quite a shock when it happened as I have always suffered from oily skin (never having a dry patch in sight) and I was totally unprepared for it. I had to go out and switch up my skincare routine pronto. Gone were all my mattifying and oil control products. I stopped caring about my oily patches and focused on taking care of the dry, flaky, red, swollen and sore patches of dry skin on my face.

Lidl Argan Oil Hair Treatment

A while back my bottle of L'oreal Extraordinary oil (which i adored) ran out, so while i was in Lidl I couldn't resist purchasing this Argan Oil Hair Treatment at the amazing price of €2.99 for a 100ml bottle. An absolute steal considering it is only a fraction of the price of many argan oil based products currently available.
