'Good Things Bright Eyes Eye Cream' Review

Hello Lovelies!

Due to my hereditary dark circles under my eyes, I decided to *finally* do something about them, as piling a heap of concealer onto my under eye area everyday was becoming slightly wearing. 

I have tried the 'Good Things Face Wipes' before. They smelt heavenly but irritated my skin and the smell went to a kind of stale raspberry smell after a couple of weeks. 

Not having much luck with the face wipes I decided to chance it and purchase the 'Good Things Eye Cream'. 
On the back of the pack it says to apply every morning and night, which I have been doing for the past few weeks. Besides the product smelling, once again, heavenly, I haven't noticed much of a difference. I have read some other really good reviews about this product, and I think it is a good product as I have noticed a slight difference. 

Despite some negativity I have found this product very soothing on my under eye area and I has reduced puffiness, just not dark circles. 

I would totally recommend this product to anyone looking to get rid of puffy under eye area, but not to combat dark circles. 

'Good Things Bright Eyes Eye Cream' is £5.99 which is a pretty good price me thinks. 

I hope you've found my review helpful! Let me know in the comments your experience of this product and any under eye creams you have loved/hated!

Prom and the end of school have finally come around! Only feels like yesterday I was saying, 'Its prom in a year, what shall I wear!?' (Very forward planning I know!;) ) At the moment I'm in the midst of my GCSEs... not fun. Less than a month to go and then a summer full of blogging! 

So finally I have decided to write a blog post to give you some makeup/ dress inspiration if you have a prom up and coming. Or maybe this post will give you some ideas even if your prom is a year or two away! When it comes to prom I'm very forward planning, any excuse to get dressed up and I'm there! 

Eye Makeup

1- Topshop eye crayon in 'Marble.' In love with Topshop's eye crayons at the moment! Works as such a good base for any eyeshadow and adds that extra bit of glitter.
2- Collection 2000 Extreme felt tip liner. Felt tip liners are the easier type of eyeliner to use, especially if you have a shaky hand (like me) 
3- Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara- So volumizing and a really good price considering the quality of the product (being very good!)

 Colour 1- I put this shimmery goldy colour all over my lid on top of my Topshop Marble eye crayon (see below) to add some extra sparkle.
Colour 2- I used this colour in the outer third of my eye to add some definition
Colour 3- I used this colour in the inner corner of my eye
Colour 4- I used this colour in my crease (and also as an eyebrow fill in!) 

My prom makeup plan (obviously not quite as red on the cheeks!)

17 BB cream in Medium- I LOVE this make of BB cream! It's has such a smooth finish without being shiny, perfect for photographs!

Topshop 'Morning Dew' cream blusher- I recently purchased this product and I've completely fallen in love with it! Admittedly it does look like a bit of a bright scary colour, but blended out it looks so pretty and natural with a hint of shimmer!


MAC  Crosswires  lipstick- I also recently purchased my very first MAC lipstick! *rejoice!* This colour is so pretty with a hint of gloss. It stays on for ages which saves constantly reapplying. It is a similar colour to my dress but not matching. 


Sorry about the awful photo!

I purchased this dress in Jane Norman for £50... bargain!

My shoes are from Barratts for £20! Another bargain!

Overall prom was great and everyone looked so gorgeous! I hope you have enjoyed this post and found it helpful if you are getting prepared for prom! :)
