Alberto Balsam Herbal Conditioner Sun Kissed Raspberry 07/09/2012

Excellent Low Cost Conditioner

Alberto Balsam Herbal Conditioner Sun Kissed Raspberry I always stick to Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner, however my shifts at work have changed and my poor boyfriend has been stuck with the task of doing the shopping. When at work I text him and asked him to pick me up some more Shampoo and Conditioner when he was at Tesco as I had realised I was running low. I didn’t bother telling him what kind to get me as I assumed that he knew me well enough and knew exactly what ones to pick up. However when I returned home from work later that evening I was disappointed to find that he had bought me Alberto Balsam Shampoo and matching Conditioner rather than my old faithful Herbal Essences! When asked why he had bought this particular brand his response was shampoos all the same, it smells fruity and is less than a third of the price of Herbal Essences! I was less than impressed however decided to try it and see if it was any good. Alberto Balsam Sun Kissed Raspberry Conditioner is available in a 400ml bottle, the packaging is quite plain and simple but that’s what you would expect for a low cost shampoo. It is supplied in a tall cylindrical see through plastic bottle which has a slight frosted appearance, the Conditioner inside the bottle is a lovely baby pink creamy substance and you can clearly see the conditioner through the bottle which is quite useful as you can notice at a glance how much is remaining inside the bottle and of course how much of it you are using at a time. The bottle has a standard black flip top lid ...

Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar 05/09/2012

Snow Fairy's Magic Wand ***

Lush Magic Wand Bubble Bar For those of you whom haven't heard of Lush before they are basically a company which produces bath and body products which contain pure essential oils and safe synthetics. One of the best things about Lush is the fact that they are really against animal testing and only use vegetarian ingredients in their products, so basically their products are quite safe for most people to use especially those whom have sensitive skin as there are no harsh chemicals in their products. Another thing about the Lush company is the fact that they use very little or no packaging with their products which is also good for the environment. I think that the way Lush manufacture, make and package their products is fantastic and more cosmetic companies should take a leaf out of the Lush book and do the same as there are far too many cosmetic products being tested on animals. As I mentioned above there are lots of different Lush products to choose from which are mainly highly scented, brightly coloured and have really funky names. You really do have an awful lot to choose from when you enter a Lush store and could easily spend a small fortune, I normally set myself a limit of £30-40 maximum otherwise I could easily spend double or treble that amount in the space of a few minutes. Normally when I'm choosing a new Lush goodie to try out I am drawn to the products which are either bright pink or purple in colour; mainly because pink and purple are my favourite colours and they look all girly and ...

Lush Ice Blue Soap 30/07/2012

Icy Blue **

Lush Ice Blue Soap Lush are a company which I had never heard of before until I read a few positive reviews about some of their different products on review sites. I really liked the sound of their products so I decided to have a look on their website to see if there was a Lush store near where I lived and luckily there were two in Glasgow. I travel into Glasgow most weekends to do some shopping and I was amazed that I had never spotted the two Lush stores on my frequent visits to Glasgow. I must walk around Glasgow with my eyes closed or something to have never noticed the bright green and yellow lush sign above the shop door. However when I entered the Lush store I was like a kid in a sweet store as there was lots and lots of products to choose from and some more appealing than others.

Comfort Concentrated Fabric Conditioner Sun Fresh 23/07/2010

** Flowers on a Summer's Day **

Comfort Concentrated Fabric Conditioner Sun Fresh I love fabric softeners and I always add some to each and every wash I do; simply because I like the added softness on my laundry and the fact that the fabric softeners fragrance my laundry too. I usually do two or three separate washes per day, which is understandable considering there are three kids and two adults in our house hold, not to mention 2 dogs and 2 cats that are just as messy as the kids. On average I could easily polish off 2 full bottles of fabric softener in 10 days or so, I like to use different fragranced fabric softeners regularly; usually I purchase 2 bottles of fabric softener per week to cope with the massive amounts of washing I tend to do daily. When I go to Tesco's I just pick out two different fabric softeners, I don't bother which brand I choose because I think that most of them are the same apart from the fragrance. Sometimes I’ll just choose a bottle simply because I like the colour or design of the bottle. A few weeks ago Tesco’s had a special offer on their Comfort Concentrated Fabric Softeners, you were getting two 750ml bottles for £2.00 there were a few different fragrances to choose from so I purchased one of each fragrance in the range so I had a plentiful supply of fabric softeners. Normally a 750ml bottle of Comfort Concentrated Fabric Softener will set you back around £1.75 in Tesco’s, however the price will vary depending on where you purchase it from as different stores and supermarkets have different prices. In some stores you ...

Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Room & Linen Spray 22/07/2010

Strawberry Sheets

Avon Naturals Strawberry & Guava Room & Linen Spray I love having a lovely clean home and spend a few hours each day cleaning around the house, as well as having a clean home I also like my house to smell fresh. I spend a small fortune on scented products for my home each month, I will buy almost anything which claims to eliminate odours and freshen the home. In my house I have an abundance of scented candles, pot pourri, plug in air fresheners, gel air fresheners and much more, I also have a collection of air fresheners in my cupboard which I use to add a lovely fragrant aroma to my home. I don’t have a particular brand of air freshener which I stick to, I like to try different fragranced air fresheners or room mists by different manufacturers. I love using scented room products because they eliminate odours which build up around the home. There are many different causes of odours in the home; the most popular ones are caused by pets, cooking and smoking; however there are other contributing factors. I am very paranoid about odours lurking in my home so I am forever lighting scented candles, switching on the plug-ins or giving the house a quick spray with an air freshener to hide the odour. Many air fresheners have odour eliminating capabilities, whereby they don’t mask or cover up the odour with the scent but they neutralise the offending odour. There are a few different air fresheners on the market which have these odour neutralising capabilities however there are far more air fresheners which don’t have odour ...

Flash All Purpose Cleaning Liquid Fresh Lemon 12/07/2010

** Fresh Lemon Scent **

Flash All Purpose Cleaning Liquid Fresh Lemon When I'm choosing cleaning products most of the time I choose popular branded ones such as Flash or Mr Muscle, although I have bought different well known brands and the supermarkets own labelled products only to be disappointed but eh results achieved from using them. Flash All Purpose Lemon is a really good product and one which I have been using for quite a while now. What I like most about this product is the fact that it can be used for a different number of household chores, which saves me from spending a fortune on different cleaning products. Most of the Flash branded products can be used for different tasks and this is one of the main reasons I seem to stick to those products, another reason I like Flash is because their products are fairly reasonably priced and they smell nice too which is always a bonus. I've lost count on the number of products I've bought in the past and they have has a terrible pungent smell which seems to linger in the house for hours after you have initially used it and no matter how much air freshener you spray the smell is still there. But with Flash All Purpose I can be sure that it will leave a nice smell in any of the rooms I choose to use it in. I usually purchase bottles of Flash All Purpose Lemon from Tesco or Semi-Chem and pay approximately £1.49 for a large 1litre bottle; you can also purchase smaller 500ml bottles for approximately £0.79 although I prefer the larger bottles because I seem to go through quite a lot of it. I ...

Nougat Exfoliating Body Wash Tuberose & Jasmine 11/07/2010

** Exfoliate with Nougat **

Nougat Exfoliating Body Wash Tuberose & Jasmine I absolutely love all of Nougat London's bath and body products; Nougat have a very large range of products which are sold in large department stores like John Lewis, Liberty Of London etc; you can also buy quite a lot of their products from online retailers too. I usually just buy my Nougat products online from www.bathandunwind.com and get them delivered to my house for convenience. You will notice that Nougat products are slightly cheaper if you purchase them online compared to purchasing in a large department store. I have tried and tested nearly all of Nougats products and their Exfoliating Body Wash is my all time favourite. Whenever I use one of the Nougat products my skin always feels really soft, smooth and highly moisturised. This is because all of the products in their range are made with the finest ingredients to gently care and moisturise your skin. Nougat Exfoliating Body Wash is fantastic, I think it is one of their best products. It's a bit more expensive than your usual exfoliating body wash but it is definitely worth parting with the extra cash for it. Each and every product in their range is of extremely high quality, right down to the actual packaging. Normally in a review I wouldn't talk about the packaging, but in this instance I think it is important to mention it so as you can get an idea of how much quality and thought is put into their range of products. The body wash comes in a tall clear glass bottle which has a white pump on the top of ...

Tesco Value Cat Litter 07/07/2010

** Heavyweight Cat Litter **

Tesco Value Cat Litter Since my cats were kittens I have used many different brands of cat litter, I have used very cheap and basic supermarkets own branded cat litter as well as the more expensive brands the pet stores stock only to discover that they are just as good as the cheaper alternatives. One brand which I have used frequently in the past is the Tesco Lightweight Cat Litter which is part of the Tesco Value Range. Tesco’s Lightweight Cat Litter is the cheapest one you can purchase in store and only costs £1.27 for a 10litre sack, which is very cheap in comparison to some of the other cat litters stocked in supermarkets and pet stores. I have previously spent over £10 for the same amount of cat litter only to find it is exactly the same as the cheaper alternatives or worse. As this is a value range cat litter the packaging isn’t eye catching or appealing, the cat litter is supplied in an off white thick paper sack which has been sewed with thick string along the top. The packaging also states that it is a Tesco Value Range Lightweight Cat Litter, and a picture of a lovely tiger cat below this, in case you forget the Value Cat Litter is for a cat. In my opinion the packaging for the cat litter isn’t the best because I have often picked up a pack of this in Tesco and there has been a hole in the bottom of the paper sack and the cat litter has leaked everywhere. This could be due to a number of different factors. Firstly the paper which the sack is made from isn’t sturdy enough to hold ...

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy Eau de Parfum 06/07/2010

** MIDNIGHT FANTASY **

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy Eau de Parfum Midnight Fantasy Eau De Parfum is a fragrance which was launched by Britney Spears at the beginning of 2007 – as well as the perfume you can also purchase the Midnight Fantasy bath and body products which compliment and layer the scent of the perfume. Some people who have dry or oily skin types or those who find that the scents of perfumes don’t last on their skin would benefit from purchasing the additional bath and body products which compliment perfumes as these would give the perfume a base to layer itself upon and adhere to therefore increasing the longevity of the scent on their skin. As I have said loads of times before in perfume and beauty reviews everyone’s skin is totally different, so therefore perfumes, lotions etc can be very different on one person compared to another as everyone’s skin reacts differently to products. One of the main points to bear in mind is that the staying power of a perfume will vary from person to person as the scent may last longer on one individual compared to another and the scent of the perfume will vary as well. I am in no way a fan of Britney Spears – I only purchased this perfume because I loved the design of the bottle. Mainly when I am purchasing perfumes the design of the bottle or box is the first thing which grabs my attention and I end up purchasing the scent before even smelling it to see what it is like. As you can see from the picture at the top of this review, Midnight Fantasy is supplied in a round bottle which is ...
