Great for tickly cough

Boots Glycerin Honey Lemon Linctus Boots Glycerin Honey Lemon Linctus I had a tickly cough few weeks a go and I decided to give this product a go.

It is designed to soothe soar throats, coughs. It is suitable for adults and children over 1 year.

It tastes so natural. It really does soothe your throat, especially in case of a tickly cough and this is how my cough started. Now my tickly cough has turned into a proper mucus chesty cough and it is very difficult to get rid of it but at least it is clearing up because before I was coughing and my lungs just hurted and nothing was coming out. I do believe I will get rid of it soon as it is getting better and better every day. I do take flu medicine and also take turmeric mixed with honey and lemon. Soon I am planning to try thyme infursion as well. If you know any good herbal remedies, please let me know. Back to the product, I would say that this linctus will help and soothe if ...

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.

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 ...

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 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 ...
