Radiance Eau De Parfum by Britney Spears // 60 Seconds Rimmel Nail Polish in 500 Caramel Cupcake // Rimmel London’s Apocalips lip lacquer in 500 Luna // Revlon Colorstay Concealer in 06
I’ve never really been a fan of celebrity fragrances to be honest, I just think the whole concept is kind of tacky, but a few years ago I was offered a small sample of Britney Spears’ “Radiance” fragrance when it was first released, and from then I was hooked! I’ve had other perfumes come in and out of my life, but none of them have yet to smell better than this one here! Far from tacky - Radiance is seriously like my signature scent, I love it.

Majority of the ombre looks I’ve seen recently have been stuck in the grungy style for too long! That’s why I am in love with this sleek take on the hair trend. The red beanie perfectly compliments this gals brunette hair colour and I love the funky aviators.
Would you apply snail slime to your face if it could reduce wrinkles and clear acne?
From a backyard pest to the most sought after beauty product in Chile and South Korea, snail slime based skin products will soon be introduced to the consumers of America - but just how will they react to it? Primarily marketed as an acne solution, the snail’s mucus is also said to have healing properties for scars and burns this isn’t anything out of the ordinary to the Ancient Greeks and most European skin creams.
Fast forward to the 21st century and the properties of the slime were discovered by Chilean farmers who claimed their skin healed quicker, without scarring by handling the snails for the French food market. These same farmers went on to create a snail slime skin product called Elicina. - Since then, 2 other Korean brands have created their very own range of snail slime products; Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Cream (by Missha) & Prestige Cream D’escargot (by Its Skin).
“But why snail slime?” you may ask! well according to the Daily Mail’s beauty columnist, Elsa McAlonan, ‘snail extract is well known for its super-moisturising properties’. The actual snail slime is a complex mix of proteins, elastin and glycolic acids which protect the snails’ skin from damage, infection and UV rays. But despite all the properties of the slime, scientists are still pretty sceptical about the new found beauty regime - but that’s not stopping all the praise about it over on the internet!
This isn’t the first bizarre ingredient to be sold over the counter, there’s been an array of weird and wonderful treats for the skin such as bull semen and bird poo - but just how far would you go for that youthful glow? tweet me your opinions at @TDRheartsNY!
