Affordable Cottagecore Dresses Under £100

The 'cottagecore' aesthetic is a type of style that has quickly become a favourite of mine over the past couple of years. It concentrates on soft fabrics, delicate prints and comfortable styles. I know narrowing down the best dresses on the market can be hard to do, so I've selected some of my favourite pieces that are under £100. 

The gingham print is a staple in cottagecore and even if you're not into the aesthetic yourself, I think it's a favourite of many especially in the Summer time. This River Island Green Gingham Maxi Dress is probably one of my favourite budget finds as the tie waist and shoulders really add a cute feel to the dress. 

If gingham isn't your thing, then floral prints may be. There's so many gorgeous pieces at the moment it was hard to narrow it down to my favourites. This Oasis Floral Bodice Pleated Dress is absolutely beautiful and I can totally see myself wearing it on a Summer's day. This Miss Selfridge Shirred Ditsy Dress is so pretty as I love this sage green shade for the Spring months. 

As soon as I spotted this Hollister Floral Midi Dress I knew that I had to share it because I think if you're into the cottagecore aesthetic, you'll absolutely love this. If you're looking for a something similar but in a mini style, then I stumbled across this River Island Broderie one which I think would love great.

FOREO BEAR Mini Review

- This is a paid collaboration with FOREO. All links are affiliate links. - 

At the end of February, I wrote about my first impressions on the FOREO BEAR mini device and after six weeks of use, I thought it was about time that I gave my updated thoughts. I had high hopes for this pocket sized device, so if you're looking to invest, then I would recommend reading on. 

One of the biggest benefits I've seen from using the FOREO BEAR Mini device is that after using it, my face feels so much more relaxed and looks smoother. This is due to the t-sonic pulsations which exercise the 65+ muscles in the face and help to ease facial tension. It felt like I was giving myself a face massage every night before bed and when I woke up the next morning, my face looked less puffy overall and my facial strain was diminished. 

As you have to use the FOREO BEAR device with a conductive serum, gel or cream, I was a little worried that the FOREO Serum Serum Serum wouldn't work well with my skin type, but actually I love this product even on it's own. It doesn't leave a greasy residue and makes my skin feel smooth, especially if used before makeup. 

An issue I hoped that the FOREO would help with was a few fine lines on my forehead along with a deep one on my eyebrow. They've cropped up from straining my face especially when looking at a screen and I couldn't believe that after just a couple of uses, I felt like they were beginning to look less noticeable. I especially enjoyed using the FOREO device before heading out in the evening, as this was when the results were most noticeable and my general appearance of my skin looked smoother and more radiant. 

Using the FOREO app with the device made it very easy to use as you can control the microcurrent intensities from your phone as well as it allowing you to start, stop and pause your treatment in one click. I was initially hesitant that I would feel like my skin was getting an electric shock, but aside from a slight tingle after my massage, the anti-shock sensors always made sure that the device was safe to use. 

Obviously at £179 it's definitely an investment product, but it feels so easy to use, so I reach for it more regularly. If you think it'll replace facials or massagers, then I think it'd work perfectly in your routine as it offers similar results in less time. FOREO offer a two year warranty and as there are no parts to replace, you will not come into an future costs with the device.
