Product review- The Righteous Butter

Soap and Glory are a British beauty company who make great priced, great products is fun retro packaging.
This Righteous Body Butter is delicious. I really love, love, love the way it smells, it is so delicious.
As a moisturiser this product is lovely. It applies really nicely, it spreads over your skin really easily and it really does make your skin feel soft and smooth and the scent is lovely and really enjoyable. It works really effectively on my dry parts; elbows, knees and thighs. It’s a lovely product and it’s a great price. It also looks lovely in your bathroom! Highly recommended!
Go forth and enjoy!

Vivienne Westwood- Boudoir body lotion

I love the scent Boudoir by Vivienne Westwood, I think it’s lovely, really rich and unique. I like the fact it’s strong and heady. It’s a great perfume, and I think it retails for a really good price. The perfume is lovely, it really is! However, the body lotion is a whole different story. I’m not sure why, but I’m really not into this body lotion. While it is quite a nice quality moisturiser, it applies nicely and it feels good on the skin, however, the scent is not great. It doesn’t smell that much like the perfume, so it doesn’t layer the fragrance at all. It doesn’t clash with the perfume, but it just doesn’t smell much like the perfume at all. Which is quite strange.
It is a nice body lotion, not the best ever, but it’s good. But the scent (which is why I bought it) is not good.

Review- the body shop coconut body butter

I really love buying things from The Body Shop, I love the smell of everything, it reminds me of being a child when the best gift ever was a body shop basket filled with treats!
I have started shopping at the Body Shop again in recent years, I love what they stand for and they make great products. I like supporting a great British company and they do great deals!
This coconut body butter smells like a dream and I love it on my rough bits, elbows, knees and feet! It’s lovely all over, it’s a really lovely product! It’s a bedside table must-have!

Review- Dermalogica Daily facial scrub

So the other week I felt my skin needed a good facial scrub. I just felt like I needed a good thorough wash and scrub to remove dead skin and any scraps of make-up.

So I was in the bathroom, surrounded by products, looking for some scrub when my boyfriend handed me his Dermalogica face scrub, I took a quick look at the simple packing and thought it looked unisex and started to apply it to my face. I instantly felt like this was exactly what I wanted, like dead skin was being exfoliated from my face and I felt clean and fresh. It had no scent and felt like a great quality product. It wasn’t until after I read the back of the product I saw it was meant for men.

To be honest, I find a lot of women’s scrubs just don’t feel effective, I often find myself wondering where the scrub is, almost like a lumpy cleaner! This Dermalogica daily clean scrub felt great, I would only use it once a week for a good deep scrub, but after my skin feels clean, clear and smooth. Its really deep cleansing and I love using it.
It may technically be for men, but it works on me and feels great.

If you are looking for a once/twice a week great scrub, this is brilliant. It isn’t too strong, its not painful, but it is effective. I love using it, my skin feels so good after. Im so glad I tried it, it’s exactly what I was after!

Nicky Clarke Allure Straightener

I’m have bought a lot of hair straighteners in my time, I have always had curly/wavy hair, but the kind that is really prone to frizz. Oh lucky me!

So I love GHD’s, they are brilliant. Super hot, super effective and super quick. However, they do cost a small fortune. These bad boys by Nicky Clarke, I think, are pretty brilliant. Their Max temperature is 230°, so they really pump out the heat! I straightened my hair in minutes with these, they were really smooth and easy to use. They are not at all bulky, so they get in and the root and they are not heavy and cumbersome. They just smooth out your hair, and onto the next section.
I’m really impressed with these, and for the price I do think they are brilliant!
If you need new straighteners. I’d recommend trying these! or view the whole range!
Oh and by the way, I love the snake skin design on it too! It’s pretty snazzy! They look cool on my shelf!

L’oreal Resist and shine titanium nail varnish – shade 710

So I really wanted new nail varnish, I really wanted a metallic grey/black, so I thought I’d give this one a go! L’oreal resist and shine Titanium (shade 710). It’s such a brilliant shade! The colour is spot on, dark, with a shimmer, very cool. Looks great with rings. Exactly what I wanted!

It goes on nice and thick, it gives good coverage with just one coat, you could almost get away with one coat, so I just applied two.

It’s really easy to apply, nice and neat. The finish is really nice too. The only problem is, it is quite slow to dry. So that is a bit annoying.
It’s a good price though and a great colour. And it does last quite well actually, it’s worth trying! Enjoy!

Blush me up! Frankly scarlet by Mac

I love a bright red blusher! I love pale skin and red blusher cheeks. I like that doll effect, slightly 80s, slightly Halloween, slightly Lolita, maybe like a vintage puppet. I think it looks cool!

I have known girls to put red lipstick on their cheeks and rub it into foundation to create the effect. Only problem with that is it can give you bad spots on your cheeks as its just so bad for your skin, especially on a night out, where you may not wash it off well enough that night: it’s just not a good idea. But it is really hard to find a bright red blusher. If they seem red in the pot they won’t be as strong on your cheeks. Or they may have a horrid shimmer you just don’t want.

When I found out MAC did a bright red blusher I has to rush off to buy it, I doubted it would be as good as I wanted. But I have to try it! So the look is either right on the apples of your cheek like a vintage doll on flawless pale skin, and big eye make up. Or you can rock it 80s style with it high, at the back of your cheekbones.
I applied foundation and got my brush out. I put a healthy amount on the brush and whacked it on my cheeks. I have to be honest, this stuff is crazy strong and I looked mental. This blusher is the bright red, Matt effect I have been wanting for years. But it is super strong, so if you want red cheeks, this is totally for you, but do apply very, very, very lightly and build it up. It is super strong and dense, which is brilliant. But not for the heavy handed!

I love this blusher, my mum hates it, but I think it’s super cool! I love the colour, I love the density. I like it super light for every day, and I like it applied more densely in the evening. It’s just cool! It’s the blusher I always wanted! However, this blusher is not for everyone, so maybe try it in the store rather than buy it online and do apply super lightly and build up.

It costs £17.50 and can be bought in the MAC stores or on the MAC website. the shade is Frankly Scarlet!
Enjoy!
