Review: Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

It’s festival season! If you’re heading to Download this weekend or to another festival later in the summer, chances are you’re not planning to shower whilst you’re there.

Farewell, e.l.f. Cosmetics! Top 5 e.l.f. Products & Affordable Dupes

Top 5 e.l.f. Products & Affordable Dupes

As you may well have heard, e.l.f. Cosmetics is no longer selling to the UK. Their distributor, Distribeauty, has decided to move on from selling e.l.f. in the UK and I wish them the best of luck in their future ventures. I thought that it would be the perfect time to write a tribute to the first ever beauty brand I tried many moons ago, and list my top 5 favourite e.l.f. products.
