Is the Missguided £1 Bikini A Real Bargain

If you're an avid fast fashion buyer or you like to stay in the loop, you would have seen that Missguided released a £1 bikini: a simple black triangle shape bikini ranging from sizes 4-24. The offer is for a limited time only; releasing 1000s onto the website each day. For some, this might sound like heaven. A cheap bikini perfect for Summer: a great staple. It even beats the prices of Primark and other brands promising cheap affordable clothing.

But how much of a bargain is this bikini for the consumer and the producers, when the bikini is only £1. This brings the question, how much is it really costing to make it? Are they really making a profit or are they shortchanging the suppliers and the workers behind that £1 bikini? When we break the bikini down it's all about polyester, which is largely unsustainable and harms the planet massively. So, if it's really worth that one photo of you on an inflatable in Greece then you do you, but for the rest of us, I think it's …

March Favorites - Makeup and Skincare

March has been a crazy month, an expensive month to say the least. After eating all my easter chocolate and spending way more than I should have on makeup and clothes this month I am ready to sit down and tell you about the makeup and skincare I have been loving this month. 

First up is the NYX HD Green concealer, recently there has been a whole color correcting craze. Everyone was going mad for the color concealers that help to hide any issues with your skin. I picked up this concealer as my acne has been out of control recently. With them being redder than ever I decided to try this out. The consistency isn't as creamy as I would like and it does take a bit of time to blend in oerfectly. Nevertheless the stay power and finish of this is amazing. You definitely need to apply foundation/concealer/ or even a bb cream over this. But it lasts all day and helps to cover any redness perfectly. This is priced at £5.50 which for drugstore brands isn't badly priced. For my first concealer product from NYX I am really impressed. 

Next up is another product is the NYX Liquid Suede liquid lipstick in the shade Soft Spoken. I am really into the deeper colors at the moment with lipsticks. As I don't tend to find light shades that suit me I have really been loving the mauve shades. For me this shade is a mauve berry type shade that sits comfortably on my lips. This stays on all day even after eating a sandwich and a roast dinner. For £6.50 I am beyond in love with this. This does have a chemical scent to it which I particularly don't mind. 

In terms of skincare, I have really been liking the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cooling Moisturiser. I picked this up during one of Boots' 3 for 2 offers at the beginning of the month and haven't stopped using it since. I love the gel texture to this, with it sinking into the skin so quickly this is perfect for those mornings when I'm having to rush out the door. With the added tea tree this works really well with my spots to help reduce the size and redness of them. I wasn't really expecting to love this, but this has become my favorite moisturiser so far and at £3.59 for 75ml you would be silly not to try this.

Until next time, Chloe!
