    Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo

    Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo | Essential Twenty

    I don’t feel like I spend a lot on hair care (apart from my hair cut – why does a wash, cut and blow cost me £37? Surely I’m getting ripped off somewhere), so it was a bit of a shock to my bank account when I spent a whopping £19 on a 250ml bottle of shampoo. I KNOW! But after hearing Anna rave about the Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo for year, I pushed the boat out and treated myself to some luxury hair care. That was back in the summer, and I’ve been using it on a semi-regular basis so I think I can finally share my thoughts.

    Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Review

    Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato | Essential Twenty

    Back in the summer I treated myself to some of the Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Range. I’m not usually one for jumping on the YouTube beauty bandwagon, but with an elderflower scent I could hardly pass it up. I’ve finally got around to trying all the bits and I can share what I think, just in time for Christmas (the people you need to buy for might be more into this scent than the Snow’Ella range, you never know).

    My First Glossier Purchase

    My First Glossier Purchase | Essential Twenty

    Everyone has been raving about Glossier for a good year or two now, and whilst I’ve been dying to try it, there’s something about the shipping companies that scare me a little. I don’t want to be stuck with a £30 fee on a £10 order! But last week Glossier hit the UK and I think pretty much everyone on my twitter feed has picked something up. You’re probably sick of all the hauls, but this is just a little one – I promise!

    Empties, September 2017 | Essential Twenty

    I didn’t think I’d finished up that many beauty products this month until I pulled out the drawer I store them in last night. Oh boy, have I used up a lot of products! A few makeup products, the odd bit of haircare and a variety of other goodies. A lot of products I’ve used up before, or previously reviewed, so expect to see some favourites in this month’s empties post!

    Urban Decay Naked Heat, 2 Months On & A Giveaway

    Urban Decay Naked Heat | Essential Twenty

    It’s been around 3 months since the Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette* presale, and 2 months since I got my hands on it. Plenty of people have shared their thoughts and I thought it was about time I did the same. Whilst this isn’t going to be really in depth, I just want to talk about it quickly as I know people will be putting together their Christmas lists soon. I’ve also got a giveaway over on twitter so you can even win your very own Urban Decay Naked Heat palette!
