Primark Makeup Sponge for 70p?!

Oh hey y’all

How goeth it?

Agesssss ago I wanted a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge but I was umming and arring and so my friend suggested buying a Primark one in the meantime.

  

  
I haven’t shopped in Primark for ages but, as always, money is tight and when my friend said their sponges were 70p, I couldn’t resist.

  
 I feel that this sponge is more focused on the shape of a Beauty Blender and it’s quite a sturdy, thick sponge. It felt that it could do some serious blendage.

When I started to use it, I was really impressed. It make the foundation blend seamlessly and everything looked flawless. 

HOWEVER, for some reason, when I used it the second time, it didn’t look great. It started to take off some of my makeup and I couldn’t understand what was happening.

  
A good few days later, it was pointed out to me that I needed to actually wet the sponge. Yes, I was embarrassed and yes, it did make sense.

Now, I actually haven’t tried it since but now it’s all cleaned and washed I am looking forward to doing so! 

I now also have a Real Techniques Miracle Complexion sponge in my makeup bag which is fabulous (blog post on that coming soon) but I think for 70p you cannot go wrong with this sponge!

Has anyone else purchased one of these? Did you forget to wet it too?!

Vo5 Heat Protect Styling Spray- Yay or Nay?

Morning everyone!

How are you all?

Today, I wanted to talking about using heat protection on your hair.

Now, I’ve never really used it and for years, I’ve tended to let my hair dry naturally. However, these days I use my hair dryer a lot and, occasionally, it’s followed by my straightners.

Therefore, keen to keep my hair strong and healthy, I thought it was time to purchase a little heat protection.

  

I decided to check out what others thought were the best of the bunch instead of just purchasing willy nilly and, after really researching (I spent longer than I’d like to admit), I opted for VO5’s little styling spray.

I picked this up at my local Body Care for under £3! I had heard that this was better for blow drys than for when you use your straightners, apparently it could make your hair feel a little greasy after straightening.
 

However, I don’t feel like it does. After spraying it evenly through my hair, I can feel a difference in texture but it’s not a horrible difference, in fact it makes it feel a bit thicker. It actually leaves a lovely scent too and my hair looks fabulous and shiny afterwards.

I will say, though, that I have sprayed this in before blowdrying and then have straightened straight after without reapplying so perhaps that would change things? 

In the end, it’s very easy to use this spray and I think for less than £3 you can’t really beat it. I really like the packagaing too- it’s very fun and cute!

I’ve never tried any other VO5 styling products but I think after using this I will try some.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Have you also used this product? 🙂
