Sleek Mascara Lethal Length

As someone who has recently switched to cruelty free makeup, something that has been lacking in my makeup collection is cruelty free mascara. I turned to one of my trusted brands, Sleek, and picked up their Lethal Length Mascara from Superdrug for £6.99, which I consider a good price.

The brush of this mascara is something I fell for instantly. It's made up of lots of fine and strong bristles which guarantee a clump free application. On one side of the brush the bristles are bigger than the other, making it easy to use on both top and lower lashes.

However, for me the formula of the mascara isn't exactly what I'm looking for. I desire long and luscious lashes which are bold and defined. But since this mascara is a pretty dry and fine formula, I find I have to build up several layers to get the look I want. And even then it doesn't seem as dramatic as other mascaras I've tried in the past.

But what I will say is that this mascara is the best one I've ever tried for lower lashes. I always find that other mascaras leave my lower lashes looking almost spider like, but this one is perfect to add a bit of length without looking fake.

So to summarize, this mascara is a great natural looking mascara, and it is my go-to lower lash mascara. However, for top lashes I cant' see myself reaching for this mascara often since I always have to top it up with a few coats of another mascara anyway. 

Overall I would rate this mascara a 6/10 just because it doesn't give me the results I'm personally looking for. But I still can't deny that if you're looking for a natural looking mascara, this does the job very well. Have you ever tried this mascara before? If so let me know in the comments,

Pixi Glow Tonic

Spoiler alert: This is my all time favourite product ever to have made contact with my face. I physically cannot wait till the end of this post to summarize that I adore this product with all my heart. Stop what you're doing right now, and add this item to your basket. If you want to know why I like this item so much, keep on reading...

I purchased the Pixi Glow Tonic 250ml from Marks And Spencer for £18. It's something I'd consider to be on the pricey side of the skin care spectrum, yet for the quality you get from it, I don't mind paying the price.

This tonic can be used on a clean dry face, and I find it works really well to remove any impurities left on my skin. Since it contains 5% glycolic acid, it works really well as an exfoliator, leaving your skin refreshed. 

It also contains aloe vera, and despite it being an exfoliator it doesn't irritate your skin at all (from personal experience at least). The bottle claims it is suitable for all skin types, and I'd back this claim up since I have very sensitive skin and it's worked a treat for me. 

As for the results I just have to say that they are beyond incredible! I've convinced many people to check this out for themselves, not only by talking about it, but by them seeing the results that it's had on my skin in person. I've received comments on my youtube channel, asking me what I use on my skin because it's literally glowing (thank you pixi!) And my sister came into my room one evening that I had just applied this product and she was screaming at me, demanding me to tell her what my skin care secret was. In her own words she said "IZZY WHAT ARE YOU USING ON YOUR FACE! YOU'RE GLOWING LIKE A VICTORIA SECRET ANGEL"

Annnnnd did I mention that it smells absolutely gorg too? That's an added bonus!

I'd like to thank the girls who work in the beauty department at my work for suggesting this product to me, because it's literally changed my life. Without exaggeration I probably spend about 10 hours a day purely raving on about how good this glow tonic is. In summary I'd rate this an 11/10 because there is no way this can be improved and it's literally the best skin care product in the world. I'm already adding this to my basket to stock up when I run out, and I highly suggest you all do the same,
