Calvin Klein CK IN2U Her Eau de Toilette 01/03/2015

CK Fragrance!

Calvin Klein CK IN2U Her Eau de Toilette Just before my holiday last year my husband treated me to a couple of new bottles of perfume one of which was the Calvin Klein CKIN2U Her. This was on special offer in Boots for the bargain price of £20.00 for a 150ml bottle. This eau de toilette comes packaged in a glass bottle which is partially covered in a white plastic sleeve with the Calvin Klein logo on the front. The design of the bottle is quite simple and contemporary but still looks attractive sat on my dressing table. The bottle has a small pull of plastic lid which reveals a pump action spray dispenser. I love the fragrance of this eau de toilette as it is beautiful and light so is just perfect for everyday wear. I tend to wear this fragrance for work as it is not too overpowering, the notes that make up this fragrance are as follows; Top note - pink grapefruit, bergamot Middle note - orchid and white cactus Base note - red cedar and vanilla You can pick up the combination of the fruity and floral notes which work perfectly together with the added sweetness of the vanilla which does come through but does not overpower the other fragrances to make it sickly or too sweet which it can sometimes do in other scents. I have had some lovely comments about this eau de toilette when I have worn it. You do need to apply a few sprays but I have had my bottle for a couple of months now and use it around 2-3 times per week and still have some left so it works out fantastic value especially if purchased on special offer. ...

Armani Code Femme Eau de Parfum 01/03/2015

Beautiful Armani Code!

Armani Code Femme Eau de Parfum I like to spritz a little perfume on every day as not only do I like to smell nice but it also makes me feel good. Although I have few perfumes in my collection some like this Armani Code for women are on the expensive side so for this reason I keep it for a special occasion. It is also quite a heavy scent more suited for evening or occasion wear. I purchased my Armani code for women on special offer some time ago but it is currently priced at £43.50 for a 30ml bottle in Boots. You can also purchase it in a 50ml or 75ml bottle too. The perfumes hourglass shaped bottle itself is very chic and glamorous being made from a purple tinted glass which gets darker in colour until it reaches the black plastic lid. On the front of the bottle is a floral ace pattern giving it a pretty but elegant look. Once the cap is removed there is a spray dispenser which ensures you get nice light sprays of the fragrance. As stated previously this is quite a strong/heavy fragrance being made up of the following scents: Top Notes – Jasmine, orange Heart Notes – orange blossom Base Notes - honey vanilla It is a fruity fragrance but with the addition of the honey and vanilla adding the sweetness it makes it quite a powerful combination. I would imagine that some people would find this fragrance quite overpowering but I love it. For me it is perfect for wearing in the evening for a special occasion and it is strong but if applied sparingly it smells wonderful. I find that just 2/3 sprays are enough ...

Cif Multi-Purpose Actifizz Ocean Spray 01/03/2015

Lacking fizz!

Cif Multi-Purpose Actifizz Ocean Spray I am not brand loyal when it comes to cleaning products and will purchase what is on offer. My local Tesco Express store recently had a stock clearance and one of the products that was reduced was the Cif actifizz multipurpose ocean fragrance spray priced at just 69p for a 700ml bottle, this normally retails at around £2.50 a bottle. I have use the Cif cream cleaner for years and love the results you get from it so I had quite high hopes for this product. On the front of the bottle it states that it ‘removes daily dirt’ and leaves ‘a sparkling clean home’. On the back of the bottle it gives more information about how the product works stating that it cuts through all daily dirt and has ‘lift action’ technology that fizzes through and removes dirt. It states that this spray is suitable for the kitchen and the bathroom and to use this cleaning spray you simply need to spray onto the surface, leave for a few seconds and wipe away. I have used this spray in my kitchen and have been really disappointed with it. Firstly when I sprayed it over my work surfaces there was certainly no fizzing action. There were a few bubbles but the spray appeared more like just plain water, also making it hard to see where I had even sprayed it as I have black work surfaces. I left the spray on for a couple of minutes and some dirt did lift off with a damp cloth but I had to use a bit of elbow grease to remove some other marks that certainly didn’t ‘fizz’ off. I was quite impressed with the ...

River Island (Shop) 15/01/2015

My favourite clothing store

River Island (Shop) River Island is one of my favourite clothing stores and has been for some time. I am lucky to live in Nottingham where there is quite a large brand new store which stocks, ladies, men’s and children’s clothing. The store in Nottingham has two floors with women’s located downstairs and men’s and children’s upstairs. The store is very light and bright with the clothing displayed on walls and gondolas generally in themed areas for example casual, going out, shoes, accessories etc. My last visit to the store was during the recent January sales so it was quite busy but there was still plenty of space to freely move around the store and plenty of staff dotted around the store for assistance if required. I do love the River Island clothing ranges as I find them to be trendy, stylish, good quality and very reasonably priced. I was able to pick up a dress and two tops in the sale for just £27 which I thought was a complete bargain. I did browse the shoes and accessories which there was a brilliant selection of but did not make any purchases of them at this time. I did use the fitting rooms during my visit and found them to be very spacious, clean and had hooks to hang clothing onto and a full length mirror. Staff were on hand in the fitting rooms to help with any questions or if another sized garment was required. There were queues at the checkouts which I expected giving the time of year but these went down quickly with all the available tills being operated. Once I reached the ...

The Body Shop Strawberry Soap 07/01/2015

Fruity soap!

The Body Shop Strawberry Soap I love receiving toiletries for Christmas as I usually get more luxurious ones than I would purchase for myself. This year was no exception with one friend buying me a range of body shop toiletries including a bar of there strawberry soap. This soap is available to purchase in body shop stores or on the website www.thebodyshop.co.uk and is currently priced at £2.00 for a 100g bar. The soap comes packaged in a plastic wrapper with a window at the front allowing you to see the red coloured slightly transparent soap inside. The directions for use on the wrapper are pretty straight forward of ‘lather up in the bath or shower. Rinse thoroughly.’ When you remove the soap from the wrapper you can instantly smell the sweet strawberry fragrance. I have been using this soap in the shower on my body puff for a few days now and have been quite impressed with it. You only need to rub the soap over a body puff a couple of times to get a good lather. The fragrance intensifies with use which I love as I like fruit fragranced toiletries but I imagine it would be a little overpowering for some people. The soap leaves my skin feeling cleansed and smooth, it is not overly moisturising but I always use a body lotion after showering anyway. I can still slightly smell the strawberry fragrance on my skin after use but it is very subtle. Overall I have been very impressed with this soap and it does make a nice change from my usual shower gel. Although it is a little on the pricey side for a ...

Catsan Clumping Litter 02/01/2015

Posh Litter!

Catsan Clumping Litter I recently ran out of cat litter and being short of time I had to pop to my local shop where the only option was the catsan clumping cat litter. This cat litter is much more expensive than the litter that I would normally use. I purchased a 10 litre bag from my local Tesco Express which was priced at £5.48. My cat has a standard sized litter tray and is an indoor cat so having a clean toilet is important to her but also to me as I do not want it to be smelly with it being in my home. The litter resembles small grey pebbles and is made from quartz sand and lime which is absorbent and is designed to prevent odour. To use the litter you simply need to pour some into the litter tray to a depth of around 5cm. My cat seemed very happy with this litter even though it is a different style to her usual wood based litter and I have had no problems with her using it. I remove any solid waste as soon as possible from my cats litter tray for hygiene reasons and change the litter completely twice per week. This litter is very absorbent and clumps to allow liquid waste to also be removed easily. I have found that this litter does mask odours very well indeed and for that reason this bag lasted me longer than my usual litter would which makes the price a little more justified. Overall I have been more impressed with this litter than I expected to be. I am not sure if I would purchase it all of the time as although my cat likes it, it is very absorbent and masks odours well the price is ...

DKNY DKNY 29/11/2014

Beautiful Scent!

DKNY DKNY One perfume that I have been purchasing for years is DKNY woman. It is a scent I love and you can always find a bottle sat on my dressing table. DKNY woman can be purchased from most department stores and perfume shops. It is not the cheapest perfume and is currently priced at £29.99 for a 30ml bottle in Boots. But it is always worth looking out for special offers with my last bottle costing just £19.99 for 50ml. The design of the bottle is quite sleek and simple, it is a clear glass diamond shaped bottle with ‘DKNY’ printed onto the side and a glass lid which is easily removed to access the pump action dispenser. I totally adore the fragrance of this perfume which is made up of the following components: Top Notes – blood oranges, mandarin, chilled vodka, ripe tomato leaf. Heart Notes – yellow waterlillies, green coral orchids and daffodils. Base Notes - white birch and tulip tree bark. It is a very fresh and fruity fragrance but is also quite strong so it may not suit everyone’s tastes. I just love the way this perfume smells on my skin it is so refreshing and when wearing it I will get lovely wafts of it thought the day and always get complimented on the fragrance. I also find that this is one of the few perfumes that actually lasts on my skin without me having to constantly reapply it throughout the day/night. Overall this is a lovely perfume which I will continue to purchase and highly recommend as it is such a beautiful scent. I love the way it is so fresh and fruity ...

Garnier B.B. Cream Miracle Skin Perfector 29/11/2014

Brilliant BB Cream

Garnier B.B. Cream Miracle Skin Perfector I don’t wear much makeup unless I am going on a night out as I do not really like the feel of it on my skin. So when I heard about BB (blemish balm) cream which is a cross between a moisturiser and a foundation I though it was worth a try. I purchased the Garnier BB cream as part of a gift set with a body oil in the Tesco sale which was priced at just £5.00. To purchase this BB cream on its own in Boots it is currently priced at £9.99 for a 50ml tube. It is available in 3 different shades light, medium or dark with the light one being included in my gift set as I do have rather pale skin. The BB cream comes packaged in a plastic tube with flip top cap. This BB cream is designed to be used on its own or to act as a primer. It claims to give sheer coverage and blur imperfections and lines for a softer, more even skin tone. This cream also contains SPF15 to help protect your skin against the suns rays. As soon as I purchased this cream I was eager to try it as there had been quite a lot of ‘hype’ surrounding BB creams. And I will say that I have been impressed, I have tried tinted moisturisers before but never really liked them but this was much better. I always apply a tiny bit of my usual moisturiser before I apply this BB cream as I do get a few dry patches so need a little extra moisturiser in some areas. The BB cream is very silky to the touch and a small blob the size of a 5p is enough to cover my whole face. It glides on easily and blends with very little effort. It ...
