Tampax Compak Lites 12/06/2017

Quality Product from a Trusted Brand

Tampax Compak Lites Tampax Compak Lites I have been using Tampax tampons for many years and I am very loyal to the brand. These tampons are available in almost every store and pharmacy. The average price for a box of 20 tampons is £2.50, however these are very often found on offer on a discounted price. You can also find these in a one pound shop and that is the best value you can have just £1. Product description These tampons come in blue cardboard box with Tampax Compak logo on it and it contains 20 individually packaged tampons. These are designed for a light flow which is more typical towards the end of the period. On every Tampax box you can find 4 drops and they indicate the absorbency that is suitable for for the strength of the flow. Tampax Lites have just one highlighted drop and it indicates that it is designed for light days. Two drops is for a normal flow, 3 drops indicate super absorbency and strong flow and 4 drops normally are super plus and designed for a very strong flow. The tampons come with a plastic applicator and it is very easy to insert them. Every applicator has a rounded tip and it is designed for female body. These tampons are dermatologist and gynecologist approved. Tampons are made of cotton and rayon. My thoughts I do like this brand and I as I mentioned above it is my favourite tampon brand. There are many different types to choose from and they are designed to make you feel protected and carefree during the period. They are very easy to insert and ...

Kiehl's Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Cream SPF30 04/06/2017

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. Product description: It comes in a tiny cute glass bottle. It contains sweet almond oil, bergamot oil,carrot seed oil, camelia oil,sunflower oil, rosa canina fruit oil. It smells divine - very gentle almond aroma. Using the product The oil is very easy to use. It needs to be applied on the clean skin and massaged into the skin with circular motions.The oil is very delicate and thin in texture. It absorbs easily and leaves skin very smooth and soft. It is simply amazing. It is very gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. I have a really dry skin, especially on my arms and this product really helps and improves the condition of my skin.

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 ...
