DreamDots For Spots

DreamDots For Spots

DreamDots For Spots



Dreamdots* is an Irish company that has released a brand new product that claims to get rid of those pesky spots while you sleep. A small patch that is placed over the blemish and contains spot fighting ingredients that help cure the blemish naturally without any harsh chemicals. So are they any good?

I suffer with acne, so I was super excited to try this brand. At the time I received them I was having a major breakout so I couldn't wait to pop the patches all over my blemishes. The patches themselves are really comfortable to wear and easy to apply. You basically peel back one side pop over the blemish and then peel off the other side, in fact it couldn't be easier and they stay on no matter how much you fidget in bed (insert dirty joke)

So now we have established what they are I will tell you how I got on with them. I found on the smaller spots they seemed to disappear overnight or at least seemed to look less visible. They defiantly got rid of the redness. However for the bigger spots I found I had to wear them over a 3 night period and even then they weren't completely gone. In fact on those huge spots I found it downsized them a little but didn't cure them. Now this could be just my skin as I do suffer with acne. So I let my mum try them out and she loved them, literally comes running into my room now everytime she gets a blemish asking for the miracle patch. 

So I think these patches will work for people who just suffer from the odd spot, however people who actually break out all the time (me....cue the violin) they might not work as well. Now I won't say they aren't good because they really do work but for those bigger nasty spots caused my hormones etc they take longer to cure and even then they just take away the pain rather than the spot itself.  

So overall I am only really recommending to people who get the odd breakout and not people with acne as I think you will just be going through them like there is no tomorrow. 

Retail price is €14.99

New Beauty Releases


I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets excited about new products being released. I have gathered some makeup and beauty items to show you today that I think we all should be getting excited about. 

First in is from Chanel, to go along with the Rouge Allure lipstick, which is a lipstick made for James Bond with its clever push up release (which never gets old) Chanel have released Rouge Allure Gloss. I have seen these in a few bloggers posts and they look super pigmented and the colour range is amazing. Not sure how they are on the sticky scale but if they are anything like the lipsticks than they will be worth the price tag. They are due to be released in October so keep your eyes peeled. I want one for packing alone...what can I say I'm a packaging nerd! 

Next is possibly the most prettiest palette I have seen from Urban Decay in a long time. UD Vice 3 is a palette full of wearable shades from browns, taupe, purple and some amazing cranberry shades. I think this vice palette seems to be a little more up people's street instead of the last two. Way more everyday shades and as we all know UD eyeshadows speak for themselves in terms of quality. 

I suppose to apply all the new makeup we need some more brushes from Real Techniques, this time its Nic's Pics which comes with 3 set exclusives and a swanky silver handle. I'm sold straight away. I love RT brushes and cannot wait to add this one to my collection. One thing I will say is that brush second from the left is meant to be a new brush but it looks so similar to the multi purpose brush. Anyone else agree? 

Lastly, Mac lovers grab your wallets because they are releasing a Rocky Horror Show Collection for Halloween, now I cannot explain how excited I am for this one, being a fan of the film and the uniqueness of the film I cannot wait to see this collection and from the look of those nail polishes I'm going to want it all. The collection consits of 4 lipsticks, eyeshadow palette, nail polish, lashes, glitter dust, pigments, blush/highlight, greasepaint sticks, eyeliner, lipliner and a blush. Our banks will hate us! Lets just hope its more available then the Simpsons Collection...I'm still bitter about not being able to get my Marge Simpson Blush. 

So there are the releases I think will have everyone talking this Autumn. Anything here tickle your pickle?

Drugstore Beauty Haul

Drugstore Beauty Haul
Ok so this is going to be the last haul for a while. I went shopping with my soon to be sister in law and I went a little cray cray. I haven't been in a Boots for over 2 months so it was no surprise I went a little nuts. There was so many new releases and I could have bought more if only my bank balance allowed me. I am now on a serious spending ban as I have two trips to Wales planned for October. So if you want to see what I picked up in my last haul for a while watch the video above. 

What have you bought lately?
