Hi, I'm Claire from PinkChickClaire.
I am an English beauty and lifestyle blogger and I live in leafy Surrey.
You may recognise me from the beauty box swaps that Amanda Mae and I have done last year?
I am so thrilled to be paired with Amanda Mae for the beauty box swaps as she's such a lovely person!
When Amanda Mae asked whether I would like to guest post on her blog whilst she's on holiday, I jumped at the chance.
So here's post all about my favourite brands and products from the UK.
I know some of these products you can buy in the US from eBay and other companies so I have included those links for you below!
These are my favourite UK brands so I hope you enjoy my post, at the end please leave me a comment with your blog link, and your favourite USA beauty products that you use so that I can (cheekily) ask Amanda Mae to send them to me in my next beauty box swap. :-)
Real Techniques - Core Collection
These brushes are just amazing! You MUST have heard from them from other beauty bloggers?
They are $18.00 from 'Here'
About Real Techniques -
Designed with pro make-up artist Samantha Chapman, Real Techniques brushes combine high-tech materials with innovative design to make creating a pixel-perfect look easier than ever:
Taklon bristles are ultra-plush and smoother than the hair you'll find in other brushes.
Since taklon is synthetic, it's 100% cruelty-free. The soft fibers help create a flawless, high-definition finish in any type of light – from sunlight to harsh indoor lighting.
The colour-coded system corresponds to the key steps of make-up application so you can create a flawless base, enhanced eyes, and the perfect finish like a pro.
Each brush head is hand-cut to the perfect shape, allowing for precise application from dense coverage to a soft, delicate finish.
The collection is suitable for a wide range of products and every make-up need – from powders, creams, and liquids to mineral make-up, highlighter, and shimmer.
Brush names on the handles make for easy reference when creating your favourite look.
I hope and dream to own everything from the Real Techniques range of brushes!
Barry M Gelly Nail Paints
I simply adore these Barry M Gelly Nail Paints because of the vibrancy of the colour range and the glossy longevity of the nail paint.
If you are looking for a new nail colour then you can buy these beauties from ASOS for $6.77 'Here'
Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm
The smell is also gorgeous and really wakes me up in the mornings as well as relaxing me in the evenings!
How to use it -
With dry fingertips, scoop a small amount of the cleansing balm out of the jar and massage directly into the skin. Wet your fingertips and continue to massage as the balm transforms into a beautiful milk. Remove with a very warm cleansing cloth.
Use morning and evening. Avoid contact with the eyes.
Follow with your skin type prescribed Elemis Toner and Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.

Wake up and smell the citrus!
Soap and Glory's energising, revitalising fresh & foamy body wash (and bath bubbles) scented with freshly squeezed lime.
Also featuring COOLCAPSULE™X to cool and refresh, radiance-boosting KIWI WATER JUICE and their super creamy M-SUDS™ moisture boosting base with skin conditioners. Pairs perfectly with similarly scented SUGAR CRUSH body buff and body butter-cream.
How to Use -
After getting well and truly soaked under the shower, lather up a few pumps and suds yourself citrussy! Rinse well and follow with body buff and butter-cream!
