Beauty Crown 2013 - Week 1

The Beauty Crown Awards are a yearly favorites collaborative effort including beauty bloggers around the globe. The Beauty Crown Awards were created by Lily from Beauty with Lily Liz from My Pretty Obsessions, Jackie from Five Two Certified, and Shalunya from Shalunya & Boyet. We felt that a collaborative effort from a large number of beauty bloggers would be much more interesting to our readers and would garner more attention. The Beauty Crown Awards are a 5 week event with each week covering types of products.

Week 2 - Facial Products - Dec 9 - Dec 15, 2013
Week 3 - Lip & Nail Products - Dec 16 - Dec 22, 2013
Week 4 - Eye & Misc Products - Dec 23 - Dec 29, 2013
Week 5 - Facial Care Products & Tools - Dec 30 - Jan 4, 2014

Week 1 of the Beauty Crown Awards covers Personal Care Items. Below are my Week 1 Selections:


Shampoo - I don't really have a favorite Shampoo, I've never stuck to one brand. I do love Tresseme and always gone back to them but I've never stuck to one brand for a long enough time to favorite them.

Conditioner - Again not a favourite normal conditioner but I love a leave in conditioner that I was very lucky to recieve at a blogging event, Anti -Frizz by Yuko Leave in Conditioner, it smells amazing of apples and leaves my hair feeling so soft and really helps with my frizzy mane.

Hairspray - I don't really use hairspray but when I do I love my Elnette Satin Supreme Hold Hairspray if just hold my hair in place wonderfully and easy enough to brush through. It doesn't make your hair look rock hard like some do its very natural looking and I don't mind the smell.

Styling Product -  I don't know if you can you would class this as a styling product its a heat protector? I like Tresseme - Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray, at the minute there selling this in Superdrug for £2.50 it is great stuff. The keratin controls your frizz and helps with damaging your hair with heated irons etc. It smells pleasant and gives you that nice shine to your hair.

Hair Mask - I love the Loreal Elvive Conditioning Mask, it smells lovely and literally when I only use this once my hair feels so fresh and new again. It's super cheap and well worth it I think, doesn't leave your hair feeling dry at all, very nourishing. I have dyed my hair so many times and this leaves my hair feeling like I've just been to the salon super smooth and great feeling.


Body Mist- I adore my Soap and Glory - Mist you madly body spray. It smells super fruity and floral, very girly and hint of musk in. Just a quick spray over lasts a couple of hours and I always get compliments of guests when they visit as I just have a quick all over spray in the morning after putting my deodorant on.

Perfume- This was easy, my all time most favorite perfume ever has to be Thierry Mugler's - Alien. I just love this stuff so much. I used to use it like it was going out of fashion but now I only save it for nights out, which is very rare these days. But it is a very rich perfume, woody but with hints of floral. It is a mysterious scent that gets you hooked from your first spray, well it did me anyway. I've been hooked ever since and have a bottle a year without fail. I hate it when I run out and instantly want to buy another. I was wondering if anyone knew of a scent on the same sort of line as I do love my perfumes and like trying new ones. Let me know in the comments below please lovelies.

SKIN CARE (Non-Facial)

Body Wash- The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel, I love this stuff, I know how many times have I said this through the whole post? Please don't count haha, It did take me a couple of days to get used to the scent as it's not one of my favorite scents but it makes my skin feel so soft and lathers up lovely you only need a couple of quirts on your shower puff and your body is covered in grapefruit bubbles of goodness.

Bar Soap- I'm not a massive soap user any more really but if I do I like a LUSH soap. This one in particular is Rock Star, a sweet smelling vanilla that creams up lovely into your hands or over your body. My boyfriend loves this soap, he's more of a soap kinda guy then me. So he gets the use out of it luckily.

Body Scrub- I'm always changing body scrubs but I have loved this one alot, The Body Shop - Spa Wisdom Morocco Black olive and Argan oil scrub. It's not too rough on my delicate skin and smells incredible. The argan and olive nourish my skin while the teeny tiny beeds are getting all my dead skin cells off. I even love the little pot it comes in, the scent and product alone does make me feel like I'm having a little Spa treatment.

Moisturizer- Again with moisturizers I am always changing these up but with about 5 Soap and Glory gift sets a year at Christmas it means alot of Body Moisturizers to use up and I do really like them, they smell so gorgeous. Fruity, floral, flirty and very girly its a pleasure to rub into my skin my boyfriend always compliments me on it once I get into bed and it soaks into the skin quite quicky too considering how thick it is, the one I'm using and loving at the minute is the Righteous Butter full of shea butter and aloe vera to leave your skin feeling uber soft and dreamy under your nose.

Hair Removal- Not a massive hair removal product fan really, just use normal shower gel and a razor to be quite honest. I'm too much of a wuss to use anything waxy down there... I've had my eyebrows waxed and that's about it and will ever be. 

Really enjoying taking part in these posts and the lovely women behind it all, a great way to meet new bloggers and get involved.
