Product review - i flutter by New CID Cosmetics

New CID Cosmetics i - flutter Mascara - Black 8ml

RRP £18.50

I picked up this mascara at  a recent event at Imagine Blofield in Norfolk. They had an evening organised with CID cosmetics to demonstrate how make-up should be applied, with lots of helpful tips. The evening was £20 and it included use of the spa. They also a nice add on of £10 off any products you bought on the night. Imagine spa do many of these nights and I highly recommend them. CID make-up is available for retail at their spa.

Christmas competition for Norwich area

As it's Christmas coming up I am going to run a competition. I am currently fully booked till January, so I won't be giving out gift vouchers this time. However I picked up this gorgeous set of OPI mini nail polishes at the wholesalers for you instead.

I have decided to put the competition on my blog instead of the normal social media platforms to give all my clients a chance to enter who aren't on facebook etc. It would be great though if you could 'like' my facebook page and give me a review on there too, if you have seen me as a client. My page is Elizabeth Smith Beauty. Alternatively, please leave me a review on Google places.

To enter the competition and celebrate my husband's new photography business I thought I would incorporate his website into the competition.

To enter simply email me the answer to the following question Read more


Neal's Yard blogger event in Norwich

The evening started in the most perfect way with a glass of champagne with a strawberry flowing in it, accompanied with a cupcake from Biddy's tea rooms just around the corner. Neal's Yard's shop has a really good feel about it. When you walk in you are instantly hit by the lovely aromatherapy humifiner next to the door helping to create the relaxing environment. One of the members of staff had been there 6 years, so knew all the products inside out.

Small talk from one of the organisers on the companies ethics etc. Read more about all that on their website. They really do care about where they source their products. It's great to have organic natural products available in Norwich.

Neal's Yard have their classic blue bottles, but to be honest it makes the shop a little overwhelming as everything starts to looks very similar. One of the bottles was described as a 'Frankincense Intense Concentrate', which when I asked a member of staff what it was, turned out to be a skin serum. For me it needs to be a little bit clearer. This skin serum is one of their new products and priced at £65 for 30ml. Boasts to show results in just 7 days on their website. They do have a wide variety of products to suit all budgets.

Siobhan from unexpected geek blog picked up a hair treatment to purchase and I am really interested in hearing how she got on it with. I have tried many hair treatments and never been happy.

Followed by a 20 minute massage of my choice by Adam Thomas. Neal's Yard has therapy rooms upstairs and offer pretty much every holistic treatment going! It was really lovely chatting to Adam about stress and the important of taking 'me time'. Read more
