For the past few years, I've incorporated self-care into many aspects of my life from how I start the day, to my body care and how I treat my skin. So when iHerb asked me if I wanted to feature a few hair, shower and body products on Makeup Savvy I knew right straight away it would be from the angle of self-care.

Without sounding too cliche or dramatic, self-care even in the simplest form, for example, hair washing, is everything to me. It keeps me on track and feeling balanced and it's the first thing I rely on when I feel a little 'off'. This does mean I often take 30-minute showers and have hand cream in every room of my house... but that's not such a bad thing, right?


Being a huge fan of all things beauty related I shared with you 10 interesting beauty facts a few months ago and as I had a good response I thought I'd make a similar post, again with some lesser know makeup and skincare facts some of which are pretty mind-blowing! 

Below you will find 10 interesting and slightly crazy beauty facts!




If there's one thing to take away from being a beauty junkie is that it's one expensive hobby! Dull I know, but so very true. With even drugstore prices now being questionable from time to time! 




Dubbed the 'one face wash to rule them all' this £15 face cleanser has been receiving some rave reviews online.

Basic in packaging and formula I thought it was time to find out why this newly launched to the UK product has been receiving all the love lately! 





With Autumn in full swing, you may still be considering an overhaul on your makeup bag. Along with a switch up of your skincare routine, there's still time to rethink your base makeup, opting for longer lasting more full coverage products, to adding a few berry toned lip colours in there.

However, the one item that can make the most difference and possibly the most fun to treat yourself to is a new eyeshadow palette. Rich in tone to reflect the seasonal change and ideal for taking you through to the colder months.

Below you will find five rich eyeshadow palettes perfect for autumn/winter to suit all budgets...





When it comes to makeup brushes I'm well aware that not everyone wants a 'collection' but rather a small number of brushes that will do the job and be of use.

Though I'm the total opposite with over 40+ makeup brushes on my dressing table at any one time it does mean I'm able to recommend good individual brushes that are not only very affordable but good quality.

Below I have selected five makeup brushes I'd recommend to anyone that for the most part, bar the Spectrum brush, I have been using for years. I hope this can be of help to anyone wanting to pick up a few more brushes or is looking to update their stash!


As we are less than two months away from Christmas I thought it was time for my annual Christmas decorations from eBay post!

Due to most items being incredibly cheap and with free delivery, for the most part, they are from China. This does take longer than UK post, hence why I'm writing this in good time, however, I do find the items get delivered much sooner than stated on the listing, often taking around 3 weeks. Basically, rest assured everything here will get delivered before December.

Hope you find a few inexpensive festive treats here!
