NYR Organic Beauty Boost Capsules

I've recently started looking after my body more, be it going to the gym, eating healthier, drinking more green tea and water and using only the best beauty products! I later discovered Neil's Yard Remedies Beauty Boost Supplements, which have helped boost these results! Now I wouldn't normally take something like this just to look good, but here's why I chose to try these...

They are full of healthy, natural ingredients! 
NYR's Beauty Boost supplements contain natural ingredients, including frankincense, vitamin c, MSM, pine bark extract, zinc and other healthy minerals!

They are good for your skin, hair and nails! 
Beauty Boost supplements help to promote collagen formation, the protein that is needed to strengthen your hair, nails and skin. The combination of vitamins and minerals make you feel revitalised and are good for your immune system as well as being good for your skin. Essentially, these tablets help keep your hair, skin and nails healthy and that's exactly what they do!

In my opinion
I've been on these tablets for around 3 weeks now and I can certainly say I've seen a difference. I've found my nails are no longer breaking, thus making them grow rapidly in length. The same goes for my hair, it's much healthier and thicker, with less damaged ends than I had before. Again, this has helped my hair grow really quickly and it makes me feel much more confident with myself. My skin is clearing up, slowly but surely, with a few outbreaks but for me that's common! I've started gaining more energy and motivation to do things, like going to the gym, which in turn is helping my lose weight and tone up! These tablets have given me the boost of confidence I've needed for a long time, and I feel 100 times better since taking these.

These tablets are only £17.50 for 60 capsules, which last 30 days. For the health benefits and results I've already seen I believe it is great value for money! I'll definitely be purchasing another pot!

My Autumn Footwear Picks

1. Lace Up Cut Out Peeptoe Heels - New Look - £24.99
2. Miss KG Honest Heels - Kurt Geiger - £80
3. Millie Strapped Heel Sandals - Vivienne Westwood - £227 
4. Leigh Ankle Boots - Supertrash - £215
5. Total Stud Platform Sandals - Forever 21 - £32.75

Autumn is approaching which means storing away our summer sandals until next year and bringing out the booties. For Autumn I like to stick with dark colours, especially with shoes. I've been thinking of what shoes I could bring into my wardrobe this year and found these babies. From high end to high street, I'm loving the strappy and asymmetrical designs this fall. I'm one for detail, and I especially love the orange accent on the Kurt Geiger heels. My particular favourite pair are the Vivienne Westwood sandals, which would look fantastic with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans and a white jacket. I love studs, especially when I'm feeling edgy, so the Forever 21 platforms would go perfect with a leather jacket. I'd team the New Look peeptoes with a skater skirt, tucked in shirt and a beige Mac. Even a simple zip caught my eye; these Supertrash booties would look great with a pair of skinny trousers for work.

I might need to do a little saving, or look for some dupes, but I've totally fallen in love with these beauties!

Benefit Cosmetics The Real Steal They're Real Kit

Anyone who knows me has heard me rave about Benefit Cosmetics' They're Real mascara at least once in their company. I've recommended it to most of the ladies I know and take every opportunity I can to buy a beauty box when a sample is on offer. So when Benefit released They're Real Eyeliner and makeup remover I was over the moon! To top that, Benefit Cosmetics released a set a few weeks after the launch called The Real Steal, which featured not only the mascara and eyeliner, but a sachet of the They're Real Eyemakeup remover, AND free delivery, for only £19.50. Considering the mascara on it's own is the same price, it definitely is a steal! 

They're Real Mascara (£19.50)
This mascara, as you know, is one of my favourite beauty products of all time. A lot of people compliment me on my lashes and are left completely in awe when I tell them they aren't false lashes; They're Real! I love the texture, the ease of application, the volume once applied and the longevity of the product. The wand is made from plastic, which feels a lot different to using a normal mascara brush, but it makes application much easier and allows the lashes to separate easily. Only one or two coats are needed for full length, thick lashes. The tiny brushes on the tip of the wand allow you to apply a small amount of mascara to the lower lashes so not to look too fake, and I also use this technique on the outer corners of my eye to lengthen my already-coated lashes for a "cat-eye" look. My only issue is that the mascara is very difficult to remove but as long as you have a decent eye-make-up remover it isn't an issue.  One full size mascara will last me 6-8 months, and a sample size will last me 2-3 months before drying out. Considering the cost of some full size mascaras that only last a few months, They're Real is definitely worth £19.50.

They're Real Mini Push-Up Eyeliner (£18.50)
The They're Real Eyeliner took me a little time to work out how to use, but once a grasped that, I was so impressed! The eyeliner is pushed up by twisting the bottom of the pen, and a small amount of gel liner appears out of the top of the slanted rubber applicator. The pen applies a thick, matte black gel which doesn't lose it's definition throughout the day. It's also waterproof, so it's longlasting and a decent eyemakeup remover is needed! The rubber applicator bends to the lash line for extra precision, but be wary that it doesn't protect 100% from slips and you can still make mistakes! However, the first time I used this I didn't make a single mistake and found it much easier to apply than a felt-tip liner. It's perfect to slip in your handbag to for touch-ups as it's so small and compact, and there is no need for a brush for application.

They're Real Remover (£14.50)
After quite a few complaints and poor reviews stating that the mascara was incredibly difficult to remove, Benefit came up with the They're Real Remover. I received a small sachet of this with the kit and used this when I was wearing both the mascara and the eyeliner. The remover has a creamy consistency and is suitable for my sensitive skin. I massaged it onto my eyes and swiped it off with a cotton pad. I was surprised at how much came off! I repeated this a couple of times to make sure everything was removed. As well as being make-up free, my skin felt very soft and hydrated, as if it was also acting as a moisturiser. This is definitely a great fix for a stubborn, yet irresistible, product

This kit is fantastic value for money overall and is a great opportunity for everyone to try out the new They're Real products before committing to buying the full sized versions. I recommend anyone who is going out to buy the mascara to stop and order this instead. Plus, order from Benefit Cosmetics and receive two free samples of your choice!
