New Lush Purchases

Working in the City Centre makes shopping way too hard to resist. So on my lunch break last week I decided to pop into Lush and pick up a couple of treats. After a very long week, I picked up the perfect products to help me unwind.

Mask of Magnaminty.

I really wanted to pick up a new face mask, but as most of their masks have to be kept in the fridge I didn’t think it would last in my bag all day. Luckily I found this mask which is self-preserving, which means it doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge which is amazing!

I used to use this mask all of the time, but for some reason I have recently forgotten how good it is. The mask can be used on both your face and body, and is great for battling breakouts. I also love how long these little pots last, as you get plenty of uses out of it.

The peppermint in this mask leaves the most incredible feeling on your face. It’s also great if you’re looking for something to get you ready for the day, then this mask is a must.

Big Blue Bath Bomb.

This is one my favourite bath bombs from Lush. Not only does it turn your bath bright blue, but it is the perfect product to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed.

This bath bomb contains lavender, so as somebody who doesn’t tend to like the scent I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The lemon and lavender scents complement each other beautifully. 

One thing to note about this bath bomb is that it contains seaweed that softens when placed in the warm bath. I personally love this as it makes you feel like you have been transported to the sea.

 

These two products work so well together and they are perfect to help you wind down after a long day at work.  I can’t wait to stock up on more Lush products ready for Christmas!

Winter Tan Treats

As temperatures start to drop, there’s nothing I love more than wrapping up warm. But even though I will spending most of the winter months covered up, I still like to make sure that I maintain a bronzed glow.

Most of us have Christmas parties and events to attend, which means that you have will have an excuse to wear anything with a hint of glitter. With that in mind, it’s even more important for me to ensure that my skin will also be glowing. Not all of us are lucky enough to jet away to a warmer climate to get that tropic tan, so I have been looking for an easier alternative.

St. Tropez Express Sheet Mask

When it comes to tanning my face I am always worried that it will leave me with a bright orange face, along with a ton of breakouts. As I am always impressed with St. Tropez tanning products I thought that I would give this a go.

Unlike other face tanners, this product comes in the form of a sheet mask. It’s advertised as being nourishing and glowing, so I was hoping that it wouldn’t dry out my face. As soon as you take the product out of it’s package you can feel how much moisture is in it, which I love. One thing to note is that the mask is very delicate so be extra careful when unfolding it.

I left the mask on for just over five minutes. The product develops gradually and I applied it before going to bed, so I was very pleased to wake up with a light glow to my face. Most importantly I did not break out after using this product which was amazing. The only downside is that you only have one use out of it, but it is definitely a product I will be stocking up on.

Bondi Sans – Self Tanning Foam

This is my new go-to tanning product. I always find that foams work better than lotions, especially when you can see where the tan is developing. This product blends perfectly and you only need to leave it on for an hour to get a bronzed glow.

I tend to go for the Light/Medium shade and I leave it on overnight in order to create the perfect tone. The shade is not orange at all and it leaves you looking like you have been relaxing on a beach all week.

This product also smells incredible, which is always something I look for in a tanning product. If you’re looking for a product which is super easy to apply and will leave you with a natural looking glow, then I would definitely recommend this self tanner.

Barry M – In the Glow Body Oil Review

thumbnail_IMG_2483

After returning from my summer holidays, I am devastated to see that my tan has started to fade away. Although it has not left me completely pale, I have been looking for a product which keeps the little bit of tan I have left looking healthy and natural.

Whilst browsing several reviews I saw great recommends on bronzing oils. I’m sure most of you have heard of Estee Lauder and The Body Shop bronzing oils, which seemed to be the most popular and reviewed oils.

As these oils can be quite pricey, I decided to look for a cheaper alternative. After searching my local Boots for a budget version, I came across In The Glow by Barry M. At £7.99 this product is less than half of the price of many other well know oils so I jumped at the chance to try it.

My main worry when trying out this oil was that I would end up orange, or that it would transfer on to my clothes straight away. But after applying the product and leaving it to dry for a good 5-10 minutes, it didn’t budge at all. I was also impressed with the fact that it didn’t give off a horrible scent, which is always a bonus.

I was confident enough to wear a white top after using this product and it did not smudge on to my clothing at all. The oil dries perfectly and gives you an extra glow without covering you in glitter.

 

If you’re looking to try out a cheap bronzing oil then I definitely recommend you give this one a go!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution Review

thumbnail_IMG_1860

If you have read any of my previous blog posts you will know how obsessed I am with The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range. When I am having a bad skin day I always turn to their products to help me out.

Whilst doing my usual shop in The Body Shop, I came across the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. The product promotes itself as being a light weight serum which can be used daily to produce clearer, healthier and mattified skin.

The product comes in a glass bottle and has a droplet applicator attached to it.

After using this product for a few weeks I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin. I have been using the product both day and night and I have noticed my skin has definitely reduced in oiliness. It has also helped reduce the redness on any blemishes I have had, whilst minimising pores.

I love using this product as it makes my skin feel extremely soft and refreshed. I feel as though this product will last me a lifetime as you only need three or four drops each time.

As always The Body Shop have impressed me with this product and it will definitely be a product I will continue using.

I’d love to hear which products you love from The Body Shop.

xoxo

AP-24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste Review

thumbnail_IMG_0666

For somebody who loves coffee as much as I do, the colour of my teeth is always a concern to me. As I am only 22 years old, I feel that it’s important for me to take care of my teeth to ensure that they stay healthy and pearly white for as long as possible.

I am always on the look out for a toothpaste which helps whiten my teeth, so I jumped at the chance to try out the AP-24 Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste by NU Skin.

In order to gain an honest view of the product, I decided to wait until I had used up the whole tube before writing my review. One thing to note is that this tube seemed to last forever.

Unlike many other whitening toothpastes, this one did not leave a nasty taste in my mouth. It was very refreshing and after looking back at my before and after photographs, I can definitely see a positive change in the colour of my teeth.

There was around five to six weeks between the two photos, but I can already tell a difference between the patchiness of my teeth. I also continued to drink as much coffee as I wanted whilst using this toothpaste in order to get a realistic result.

I love this product as it does not break the bank, but there are clear results when using the product. My teeth feel much cleaner and I will definitely continue to use this product.

If you’re looking for an easy and cost effective way to brighten your teeth, I would definitely recommend you give this toothpaste a go.

Australian Bodycare Tea Tree Skin Wash

australian_body_care_body_prods.jpg

 

After years of using harsh face scrubs and washes in an attempt to have clear skin, I have finally found a product which helps clear up imperfections, whilst soothing the skin.

Australian Bodycare is a brand which specialises in Tea Tree Oil products, the magic ingredient in solving any skin problems. The brand offer a huge range of products, including oils, lotions, skincare and hair products.

I decided to try out their skin wash as it was described as a daily antiseptic wash to help prevent against spot causing bacteria.

The one issue I was concerned about before using this product, was that it might leave my skin looking dull and dried out. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

As the skin wash has a neutral pH balance, it doesn’t harm sensitive skin and it did not dry out my skin at all. I have been using this skin wash every day for the past few weeks and it has left my skin feeling squeaky clean.

For somebody who has very problematic skin, I was impressed to see that my blemishes had cleared up and I have definitely seen a reduction in break outs. 

I love using this skin wash in the mornings as it leaves my skin feeling super fresh.

If you have sensitive or problematic skin, then I would definitely recommend you give this skin wash a try!

Billion Dollar Brows Universal Pencil Review

BeFunky Collage

 

I have recently tried out a new brow product which I am really impressed with, so I thought that I would share it with you in hopes that you love it as much as I do.

Throughout the past few years I have tried and tested many brow products, some great and some not so great. One of the main issues I have when finding a brow product is that it seems to be hard to find the perfect shade.

With that in mind, I was excited to try out the Universal Pencil by Billion Dollar Brows, as it states that it is a brow pencil suitable for all hair colours and skin tones.

 

 

The pencil features a spoolie brush on the end which is amazing as it helps you blend the product beautifully. I was so impressed with how easy the product was to apply, with a few light brush like strokes I was able to create the perfect look.

The product is very buildable, which is helpful in creating the right shade and tone to match your hair colour. I also like the fact that the pencil does not need sharpening as it uses a retractable tip pencil.

This is my end result after the using the product. I was pleased to find that the colour did not fade or smudge, leaving me with a natural brows for hours.

If you’re looking to try out a new brow pencil then I would definitely recommend you give this product a try. It can be purchased from the brands site at http://www.billiondollarbrows-uk.com
