pmd Kiss Lip Plumping System - Review

I recently got sent the PMD Kiss system from Love me beauty, I have to say I was apprehensive to see how it preformed as it isn't something I would usually look at of go for. I am not one for big lips as I am quite happy with my own so I didn't know how I would get on with it.
The kit comes with clear instructions which were easy to follow and it quite a quick process and I would say great before a night out or a day where you want to have fuller looking lips.

Following their guide I applied the lip serum onto my lips, it is quite thick more like a balm which was easy to apply. I then chose the correct lip mould that comes with it, there are two to chose from to suit different shaped lips. I then placed it over and clicked the button to start the suction process. There are two settings, one for a quick plump which can only take a matter of minutes. The second speed is a longer process but makes the effect last for longer. I tried the first quicker setting to start with. I placed the applicator over my lips and let it pulse 10 times in a row before moving onto the next section. You are meant to do it over 4 sections of your lips but I found that if I did 6 it worked better for me.

The feeling is a little tingly but it doesn't hurt or anything. My lips felt plump and I could visibly see a more natural looking pout which is what I was looking for while using the system. It lasted for what I could tell for a for a few hours which is amazing considering how quick the process is to do.

I have yet to try the longer setting and to see how well it works but I am happy with using the quicker few minutes for occasions.

It is small and portable, it is USB charged which is really handy because it can be charged from a laptop if you are on the go, it doesn't take long to charge at all.  It has a cap to keep the mouth piece clean so it is all self contained.

I am really impressed with this system and I am sure those who are after more voluminous lips would love it too. You can get a perfect pout! It retails at - which I have to say I thought was very pricey at first but If you use it regularly it will certainly make up for the cost in no time.

My favourite kind of photography

I love taking photos in general but there is something amazing when capturing moments like these. Little innocent animals. 

This one has a special place in my heart and I hope that he is loved as much by his new owner. 
Those eyes though!

There is something special about seeing a mothers bond with a baby, it is interesting to see how they know what to do when nature kicks in. 

Always has food around it's face.


Ahh the one with the attitude, a loud voice and a beautiful face.

I decide to take photos because it means I'll have the memories to look back on. It's also rewarding to look and see that I did manage to capture their personalities even though it may have taken 50 attempts. 


Botanics Skincare!

I have recently become an ambassador for Botanics which can be found in Boots, it has been available for many years but they have recently changed their packaging and re-launched their range. It is stunningly beautiful and they have 4 ranges for different skincare needs. Organic, brightening, hydrating and early signs of ageing. They send me over a few products to try out which I have been doing for the past month and now I will share what I have been thinking, how they work and If they are worth it!

All Bright Purifying Face Scrub is a gentle scrub which buffs away dull skin leaving it clean, smooth and radiant which is what we all want. Especially with winter looming and the colder weather starting to become frequent we should all be using the products that can help keep our skin in tip top condition. It is infused with natural hibiscus extract which has brightening properties as it's flower acids improve skin texture. I have been using this 2-3 times a week and I have noticed a difference in my skins texture.

Botanics all Bright Hydrating Day Cream SPF 15 leaves skin feeling soft with one simple application, it has UV protection which is important to use all year round. By using a moisturiser with SPF it ensures that your skin is protected without having to worry about applying suncream as an extra step. Like the face scrub it also helps to give the skin a dose of radiance so using them hand in hand will brighten your complexion for sure! I have been using this in the morning before applying makeup, I allow it to sink in for a few minutes which is all it takes with it's light formula.

Botanics organic Hydrating Day Cream is very nourishing and can be used during the day which I have been using along side the brightening moisturiser, I have been swapping them depending on how much nourishment I want that day. If my skin is feeling dryer I have been opting for this cream as it is non-greasy which is a hell yes for oily skin! It is fast absorbing and is infused with organic rosehip extract which is rich with skin foods for a healthy complexion.

%100 Organic Rose water refreshing toning spritz helps to purify skin leaving it revitalised and prepared for the rest of your skincare steps. I think this is perfect for my routine as it is quick to use and as a uni student it is amazing to use before those 9am's if you understand, the refreshing spritz is an instant wake up call. It has a really nice scent and feels really soothing on the skin. I took this on holiday and kept it in the fridge for when I got back to the villa and it was the best thing ever to cool down.

I have recently gone out and purchased two other products of my own and I am testing them out so look out for more botanics post's soon! Everything is super affordable and works really well, feels nice on the skin and is all natural.
