Tampax Compak Pearl Tampons 07/08/2017

Favourites

Tampax Compak Pearl Tampons Tampax Compak Pearl Tampons I have been using Tampax Compak tampons for many years and for me personally this is the best tampon brand out there. I have previously posted some Tampax reviews on here. This time I am reviewing the Tampax Compak Pearl range. These are available in most pharmacies and supermarkets on the high street. They come in packs of 18 or 36 and the average price for a pack of 18 is £2.50 and a pack of 36 is around £5. They are very often available on offer for less. There are 3 types to choose from regular, super and super plus. Each of them is marked with drops which symbolize strength. regular has 2 drops, super has 3 and super plus is marked with 4 drops. About the product These tampons are individually packaged tampons and they come with an applicator. They all come with a smooth rounded tip and are easy to insert. Tampax Pearl edition is the latest from Tampax and all the tampons are fragrant. They are made with cotton and they are super gentle. They are gynecologist and dermatologist tested. My thoughts I love these tampons and I use them nearly every month. They are gentle, very comfortable and discreet. I like that they actually do what they promise and they are so kind and gentle to skin. The packaging is also very handy and you can easily take 2-3 in my handbag and they are small in size. I have been using these tampons for many years and I really like the quality. The applicator makes it really easy to use them and they are super ...

Malibu Sun Protection Lotion SPF 8 29/07/2017

Malibu Sun

Malibu Sun Protection Lotion SPF 8 Malibu Sun Protection Lotion Malibu is a very popular sun screen brand. They have a very wide range of products to choose from. The prices differ from product to product, but I got 3 different small size bottles for juts £3 in my local one pound shop. I paid only 1£ per bottle. This product is available in most popular high street beauty shops and supermarkets but the cheapest and the best value is of course available in Poundland. Product description This sunscreen comes in a 100 ml bottle with a spray nozzle and it is very easy to use it and apply it. It is clinically proven and very kind to skin. It is water resistant and it is vitamin E enriched. One of the main ingredients in this sunscreen is shea butter. To use it you need to shake the bottle well and then spray on your skin and then massage it gentle into your skin. The lotion is very light and it is white colour but once it soaks into your skin it is not visible anymore and it does not leave any marks. Using the product I am very happy with the product. Even though now the weather is not so nice any more I will be using it when I go on my holiday. The product is really gentle and very moisturising. It also has a very nice tropical scent with a hint of a coconut and pineapple to it. It absorbs easily and doesn't leave my skin greasy. I really like it. Little goes a long way and it is a really good value for money. I was very lucky to find these product in my local pound store - very cheap and ...

Boots Tradition Skin Care Glycerin and Rosewater 25/07/2017

Nice toner

Boots Tradition Skin Care Glycerin and Rosewater Boots Traditional SkinCare Glycerin and Rose Water I got this product in Boots few month ago and I was actually looking for some nice toner and decided to try this product. I really like its old school look and the fact that it contains rose water. Price: £2.39 = Product description This product is a clear liquid and comes in a plastic bottle and contains 200 ml. It smells like an old fashioned rose water. It is not sickly or overpowering at all but quite pleasant. The label and the bottle is very simple and vintage looking. Features: This product is toning and moisturising. It is dermatologically tested and Lanolin free. It is Boots own product and produced by Boots Skin Care Specialists using traditional ingredients. It is cooling and refreshing toner that softens and moisturises the skin. How to use: Apply to face and neck using cotton wool pads. It also contains alcohol so there for you should avoid contact with eyes. Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Isopropyl alcohol, Methylparaben, Sodium citrate, citric acid, parfum, Eugenaria leaf oil, Rosa Damascene flower oil. My thoughts I really love this product and it makes my skin look really fresh and it does the job nicely. I do not use it every day but when I use the results can be seen immediately. There are just two weird facts about this product. One fact is that it makes my skin feel a little bit sticky and the other fact is that it s very sweet to taste. I know I should not be eating it but sometimes I ...

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Scrub 22/07/2017

Clean and fresh

Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Scrub Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active Scrub I have tried quite a few Garnier products in the past and I quite like the brand. I came across this product in Asda the other day and it was on offer for only £2. Normally it costs little bit under £3 and it can be found in all the most popular pharmacies and stores. Product description This product comes in a 150 ml tube with Garnier logo. It is dermatologically tested and it is designed for spot prone skin. This product fights spots, fades marks, and cleans pores. It is very easy to use this product. Just wet your face with clean water and then apply the scrub and massage it over your face in circular motions and then rinse it off. The scrub is creamy in texture and it has plenty of exfoliating blue microbeads and it feels very refreshing on my face. It is both gentle and scrubby enough for me to feel and see the difference. Follow by a toner or moisturiser. My thoughts As a teenager I never had any problems with my face, but now in my 30's I have been experiencing some spots from time to time. It is not many of them, but still they are there. This is the reason why I purchased this product. I need something very intensive . I do like this product especially the amount of exfoliating beads in the cream, it makes you feel that you are actually using a proper scrub. It does the job really well but there is one downside. It might be drying and I do not recommend using it if you have a dry or combination skin. My skin has ...

Body Fantasies Signature Fragrance Body Spray 18/07/2017

It's ok

Body Fantasies Signature Fragrance Body Spray Body Fantasies Signature Fragrance Body Spray I came across this product in Superdrug the other day and there was a promotion. I cannot remember exactly how much I payed, I think it was 2 for £3 or something like that. The full price of this product is £3.99. I bought 2 of them : Cotton Candy and Sparkling Grapefruit. This spray is available in Superdrug. Product description It is a perfumed body spray and it comes in a 94 ml bottle with a spray nozzle. It easily fits into my handbag. Altogether there are 10 different scents to choose from including: Twilight Mist, Japanese Cherry Blossom,Kissing in the rain, Vanilla etc. The bottle is very handy to hold and it contains roughly 500 sprays. It is supposed to be long lasting but in my opinion Cotton Candy is not very long lasting. Sparkling Grapefruit is much better. If I spray it on my wrist I can still feel it after couple of hours. Using the product I really like both scents. Cotton candy is obviously much sweeter and it really smells like candies but it is not long lasting, it fades away quickly. The sparkling grapefruit is a very nice scent, and it smells very clean and fresh. It is not sickly sweet at all. It reminds me of San Pellegrino red orange lemonade. I use them after the gym, or after swimming pool just to freshen up a little bit and they come really handy. I would not pay the full price for them though, because 4 pounds for such a product is a bit too expensive. Final word It is a nice body ...

L'Occitane Immortelle Oil Make-up Remover 14/07/2017

Perfect make-up remover

L'Occitane Immortelle Oil Make-up Remover L'Occitane Immortelle Oil Make-up Remover I have previously rated quite a few product from L'Occitane and I must say I am a huge fan of the brand. I recently came across this make-up remover oil and I bought a small version of it, the travel size for only £4 just to try it out and I must admit I am truly impressed. The price and availability It normally comes in a 200 ml bottle and costs £22. The travel size is 30ml bottle and costs £4. You are more likely to find more travel size products online rather than on the high street, so I definitely recommend visiting their online store uk.loccitane.com. Product description This make-up remover oil comes in a 30ml bottle with a pump. It is an oil based product and it removes even water proof mascara instantly. The main ingredient is Immortelle Flower Oil It is organic and suitable for all skin types. It also contains sunflower seed oil and apricot kernel oil. How to use The best thing about this product is that no cotton pads are needed. Even if I apply few layers of mascara on my lashes it comes off easily with just gently rubbing the oil on my eyelids.. It has to be used on dry skin with eyes closed and gently massaged all over the face and eye area. Then wet your palms and gently massage little bit of water on top of the oil and it will turn into a nice lather. the final step is to rinse it off with clean water. It perfectly removes make-up, even the most difficult mascara and leaves skin super soft and ...

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist 29/06/2017

Refreshing and moisturising

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist I popped into a Body Shop store the other day looking for a bb cream. There was an offer 2 for 3 at that time and I ended up leaving store with this face mist. I bought cc cream instead of bb cream and I also got bronzer for free. This face mist is available in all Body Shop Stores for £10. It is very often available on offer. The product description This mist is suitable for all skin types. It comes in a 100 ml spray bottle and it is very easy to use it. This facial mist is infused with rosewater and it instantly refreshes and helps to boost hydration on skin, and set make-up.

The mist has a very nice and light rose scent and it is very gentle and does not irritate my face. It ...

Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub 27/06/2017

Not a very scrubby scrub

Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub Olay Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub I bought this product in one pound hop the other day. I have tried few other products from Olay and I quite like the brand and when I saw this scrub for 1 £ I bought it straight away. This product normally costs around £4 on ebay and amazon. Product description This scrub comes in a 150 ml tube. The tube actually looks bigger than that and I think it will last ages. It is a smoothing face scrub and it is designed for dry/normal skin. It is gentle formula with exfoliating micro beads, smooths away surface skin cells, impurities and make up. Gentle enough to use on a daily basis. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. How to use the product You need to gently massage onto wet face and neck. Then just rinse it off thoroughly and gently pat dry your skin with a towel. You can follow by applying a toner and a moisturizer. Using the product I expected something more scrubby. This scrub is like a cream, white in colour and very smooth in texture. The exfoliating grains are not visible but you can feel some of them, but it does not have a very scrub-like texture and you basically are massaging cream into your face. After rinsing the product off you can feel that face looks slightly fresher and smoother. It does make my skin smooth but it doesn't scrub off dry skin and some dry areas on my face still are still quite dry after using this so it does not basically do anything much. I would not be buying ...

Good product

Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF30 Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF 30 I got this cream few months a go as a treat on Valentines Day. We had a Kiehl's stand at work where we could purchase discounted products. After the even Kiehl's lady gave my colleagues and me some very cute samples to try and the cream was one of them. This cream if bought in store costs £43 for 50 ml tub. It is very expensive in my opinion and it must be very good then. I got this in 7 ml tiny tub Product Description It is a skin fortifying and wrinkle reducing cream. The main ingredients are apricot kernel oi, vitamin E, Copper PCA and Calcium PCA. It also contains beeswax, wheat extract and ginko biloba extract. Copper PCA - it is a mineral that helps to maintain skin's moisture level as well as to stabilize keratin levels Calcium PCA - is an essential mineral that helps to prevent the degradation of collagen fibres. According to Kiehl's it is clinically proven to improve skins elasticity by 32%. It also minimizes appearance of enlarged pores and smoothens skin. How to use the product This cream has to be applied on cleansed and toned skin every morning and evening. It is recommended to use it with some others from the range, but I have never done that because I have only this cream. The scent - It doesn't have any scent to it. It smells like a medical cream to me. The cream is very thin and gentle in texture. It soaks into the skin easily and it makes skin feel really soft. I cannot really comment if it ...

L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil 03/06/2017

Love it

L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil I got this product as a part of the Delicious Almond Tin beauty set. As I have previously mentioned in my reviews I am a huge fan of L'Occitane. I had a chance to try quite a few of their products and I have always been impressed with the quality. This time I am reviewing Almond Supple Skin Oil. Price and Availability This product normally comes in 100 ml bottle and costs £36 (wow) I got a smaller version of this 15 ml bottle. If bought separately the 15ml travel size oil will cost £ 6.50. It is available in L'Occitane stores on the high street and online. I really like that L'Occitane do gift travel sets for a reasonable price you get to try very nice products and gives you a nice insight, before you actually decide to purchase bigger versions.

Lush Candy Floss Showder 28/05/2017

Lush Candy Floss Showder

Lush Candy Floss Showder Lush Candy Floss Showder I got this amazing product in Lush few months ago. It comes in 400 ml packaging and costs and costs £15.95 As far as I can remember it was discounted so I paid around £ 13. It is available in Lush high street stores and online. Products Description: What is it? It is a shower powder and they call it showder. The packaging is very cute and it looks like a vintage washing powder. It comes in a cute pink cardboard box and contains 400 ml of powder. The powder smells amazing – it has a very nice candy floss scent. The powder is very gentle and as soon as it comes in contact with water it forms a really nice lather. It can be used as a scrub too. The Downside: I adore this product but the packaging is very impractical and it is more sort of a decorative thing. You have to keep it in a dry place, not a bathroom because it will become moist and damage the powder. In my opinion it is a beautiful treat and also a present, but you have to keep it in mind that it cannot be kept in the bathroom. I normally keep it in my bedroom and then if I want to use it I pour small amount of power in a separate container and then take it to the bathroom. Using the product As I have mentioned above there are some precautions you need too keep in mind in terms of the packaging but apart from that if you use your common sense the showder is easy to use. The powder is very gentle and kind to skin. It is designed for sensitive skin and it is made with natural ...

Pantene Pro V Curl Perfection Moisturising Conditioner 18/05/2017

Great Bargain

Pantene Pro V Curl Perfection Moisturising Conditioner Pantene Pro V Curl Perfection Moisturising Conditioner I got this conditioner in my local one pound shop. They have quite a few different types of Pantene shampoos and conditioners available and they change them from time time. I usually get 2 or 3 bottles when I go there. I do love their conditioners and they really work for me. This one was just £1 and comes in a 335 ml bottle. Product description This conditioner is very thick in texture and has a really nice Pantene classy scent to it . It is designed for curly hair and smooths the locks and defines them. It leaves hair shiny and healthy and prevents damage. It comes in a 235 ml bottle and little goes a long way. It is best to use this one together with a shampoo but I haven't seen the shampoo from this range in a poundshop. Anyway I use it with a different shampoo and it really makes no difference. The conditioner does what it says on the package and I am very happy. Using the product After rinsing out the shampoo from my hair I apply a generous amount of this conditioner to my hair from mid lengths to ends. I keep it in my hair for 5-10 minutes and then I rinse it out. I love the way it makes my hair so smooth and silky. It is very easy to style curls after using this conditioner and they are visibly shiny. I normally apply some curl product to my hair and then let it dry naturally. Would I recommend this product? Yes I would. I love the way it makes my hair feel. It is an amazing value for money and ...

Lovely lavender scent

Kiehl's Gentle Exfoliating Lavender Body Scrub Kiehl's Gentle Exfoliating Lavender Body Scrub About Kiehl's Kiehl's is an American cosmetic brand founded in 1851 and it started as a homeopatic pharmacy and gradually became bigger. It was bought by Loreal in 2000. According to Feelunique: Kiehl's rich heritage incorporates a blend of cosmetic, herbal, and medicinal knowledge developed and woven into high-quality and cutting-edge products, including the acclaimed Crème de Corps body moisturiser and Midnight Recovery Concentrate This is the first time I am trying something from Kiehl's I got a sample of this scrub at an event at work on Valentines day. It came in a cute 15 ml tub, but normally it comes in a 250 ml tub and costs £32. I also got a sample of face cream (I will write a review later). Product Description It has a nice and gentle creamy texture and tiny brown exfoliation particles, what according to the ingredients list I think is apricot seed powder. It is slightly greyish in colour. There is a long list of ingredients. I have no idea what half of them mean but I can see many good oils among them like coriander oil, avocado oil, aloe vera extract, sunflower oil, wheat germ oil. According to the producer it is rich and indulgent body scrub. It exfoliates and gently removes dead surface skin cells without drying the skin. The scrub is formulated with natural, microbead-free exfoliation particles and skin-enriching emollients that help smoothen the skin. It leaves skin silky soft, velvety smooth, and ...
