Soak Up The Sun Safely with Badger Sunscreens

When these Badger Sunscreens dropped through my door a few weeks ago, I was delighted to be able to put them to good use during the mini heatwave.  The joy of being off work and enjoying the sunshine, means I have had more time to put products to the test.

Now I am a fan of the Badger brand, they offer cute, quirky and purse friendly products and I have featured them on this blog many times.  The three different sunscreens that I have are all SPF30 with the ethos being centred around the need to make enjoying the sun as safe as possible for all of the family and without being too laborious. 

Badger SPF30 Broad Spectrum Unscented Sunscreen Cream
This is the one I have been using.  I like that it is unscented and whilst it isn't as thick as other brands of sunscreen, it has a texture that is thick enough to let you know it is on your skin whilst being moisturising and hydrating at the same time. I never once felt that it made my skin feel caked in cream or that there was too much of it. This sunscreen is both water and sweat resistant for at least 40 minutes of swimming or activity, blocks both UVA and UVB rays and uses a certified organic sunscreen base of Sunflower Oil, Beeswax, Seabuckthorn and Vitamin E is ultra-moisturising and soothing.

Badger SPF30 Broad Spectrum Kids Sunscreen Cream

Whilst I don't have children, I am more than happy to champion the cause of importance where sunscreen is concerned and have passed this one onto a friend who is using it right now on her holiday with her children. Again this sunscreen is both water and sweat resistant for at least 40 minutes of swimming or activity, blocks both UVA and UVB rays and is lightly fragranced with non-photosensitising essential oils of Tangerine & Vanilla in a gentle Sunflower Oil base as well as being hypoallergenic.

Badger SPF30 Broad Spectrum Baby Sunscreen Cream
As with the above, this cream has been gifted to a friend who has a baby and whom is on holiday right now. Again this sunscreen is both water and sweat resistant for at least 40 minutes of swimming or activity. It is hypoallergenic as well as being Pediatrician tested and approved safe for babies and it has a certified organic base of Sunflower Oil, Beeswax and Vitamin E is ultra-moisturizing and soothing.

How to Awaken Your Inner Alpha Male

Pure alpha males can’t be called the best partners for serious relationships. They prioritize their needs and are too focused on themselves. Yet, they attract women like a magnet. This is because they have a number of qualities that make them masculine in the eyes of the opposite sex. They are strong, confident, calm, uncompromising, decisive, and, yes, successful with women. They know how to seduce and flirt with girls and constantly use this knowledge. Since an alpha male is living inside every man, you should just put in some effort to awaken it. Read on to find out how to activate your manly qualities and allure women by Mariya Dates.

Work on your body language. Before you open your mouth your body language already speaks volumes about you. Your inner state almost always reflects on your posture, movements, and gestures. You should be in control of your body in order to appear confident no matter what. Have a good posture, keep your shoulders back, chest out, and head up. Look people in the eyes – this way you communicate that you feel comfortable talking to them. Don’t cross your arms on the chest but stand and sit in an open position.
Work out. Of course, muscles alone will not make you an alpha male but women are subconsciously attracted to the physically strong men. They need to feel protected and know that in case of danger their man will be able to fight. Going to the gym is always a good idea. Keeping your body in tone will not only make you look manly but also will benefit your health.
Speak with confidence. Believe in what you say and express your opinion clearly. Tell the truth and don’t try to pretend, then maintaining eye contact will not be a problem for you. Pay attention to how you speak, that is to the loudness and pitch of your voice. It should always sound natural as if you were in the company of your buddies. Speak in a low and confident voice while approaching women. They can discern the subtlest shades of anxiety and hesitation in men’s speech so train your voice and talk to the opposite sex frequently until you master your skills.
Dominate. The craving for dominance is quite exaggerated in alpha males – they want to order and want everything to be their way. Women love leaders but if a man is uncompromising, it may turn them off especially when they look for a serious relationship. That’s why dominance is good and attractive in a moderate dosage. You should demonstrate your dominance by your body language and leadership qualities. A woman should feel that she can follow you and you’ll take care of everything.
Never complain. Only weak personalities resort to complaining. Real men are strong enough to endure any difficulties, take responsibility for all faults, and find the way out. If you want to be successful with women, they shouldn’t hear you complain about anything. Stop looking for excuses (even in your thoughts) once you did something wrong. Have the courage to admit your faults and move on.
Keep calm. Don’t let trifles drive you out of your wits. A real man will never fight with his woman over insignificant things. If she starts to express her concerns, he’ll listen to her first and then tell her what he thinks about it. He will never shout or blame her in return because he understands that women are emotional creatures. He knows that he should keep his head and deal with any difficult situation with dignity.
Be funny. Do you know that you can influence people using your sense of humor? It’s a great tool of the leaders who use it to demonstrate their confidence and good communication skills. Also, humor is necessary if you want to make a good impression on a woman.

MUA Luxe Enchanted Eye Palette

Well this little beauty of an eyeshadow palette really got people's attention on Instagram and you can see why. This luxurious silk-inspired eye palette actually is from the MUA Luxe range and not Hourglass as quite a few people assumed. To look at, admittedly it is an absolutely amazing dupe and similar in the shades chosen for the palette.  I don't own any Hourglass products so am unable to compare the formula of the two. 


Called Enchanted, this Silk-inspired eyeshadow palette gives seamless colour and can be easily blended for perfect results and they are also buildable for those people who want a lot more coverage and colour. Each shade can be worn alone or you can create a mixture of more than one shade or indeed all 5.

The shades on this palette work to compliment one another and are perfect for the base, crease and lash line and I was even more surprised at how long lasting they are too. I always apply using an eyeshadow brush and the fallout is absolutely minimal to almost none at all.

If a smokey eye is more your look then fear not because there is another palette within this range and it is called Enrapture. Enrapture includes eyeshadow shades that are more dark whilst the other one has soft and gentle shades.

I really like how sleek this palette is and it fits perfectly into my makeup bag without any problems. If you are looking for a new eyeshadow palette, then these are definitely worth looking out for, they are priced at just £6 and are just stunning.
