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 ...

Soap & Glory Soap and Glory The Righteous Body Butter 23/11/2014

Righteous Moisturisation!

Soap & Glory Soap and Glory The Righteous Body Butter I don’t think there has been a Christmas recently where I have not received some sort of soap and glory gift set which is fantastic as I love there products. One item that was included in my last gift set was a small tub of the righteous butter which is a moisturising body butter. Soap and Glory products can be purchased from Boots either as individual items or as part of gift sets. My righteous butter did come as part of a set but can also be purchased separately and is currently priced at £10.50 for a 300ml tub. It is always worth looking for special offers as Boots frequently have a 3 for 2 promotions on the individual items. The body butter comes packaged in a cute pink tub with a screw on lid. The labels on the tub provide you with all the necessary information about the body butter including ingredients listings and directions for use. To use the body butter you simply apply it to damp skin after showering or bathing. The body butter is white in colour and quite a thick consistency. It also has a wonderful fragrance which is a combination of fruity and flora and well known throughout the soap and glory angel. I will say that I love this body butter, it is far better than many others I have used as it is not as greasy or difficult to apply. It smoothes onto my skin with ease and sinks in quickly leaving my skin feeling extremely soft all day and not in any way greasy meaning I can get dressed quickly after applying. The fragrance also lingers for a long time but is ...

Bourjois Blusher 23/11/2014

Blush blush!

Bourjois Blusher I have quite a pale completion so when I wear makeup I like to use a bronzer and a blusher to help give my skin a nice healthy looking glow. One blusher that I own and use frequently is the Bourjois little round pot blusher. I purchased my Bourjois blusher in the Cendre Roses Brune shade from Boots where it was priced at £7.99 but I got it as part of a 3for2 special offer which they often have on the cosmetic ranges. This blusher can be purchased in 12 different shades which means there is one out there for almost all skin tones or to get the look you want to achieve. It comes packaged in a small round pot which is the same colour as the shade which gives you a great idea of the colour of the blusher inside. To open the pot there is a small button on the front and inside is a mirror in the lid and an application brush. The blusher is pressed into a dome shape and has a pearlescent appearance. To use you simply need to sweep the brush over the blusher and then sweep over your cheekbones. This gives your cheekbones lovely definition and adds a glimmer of colour to your cheeks giving you a delicate but healthy looking glow. This blusher does feel very light and silky on my skin and does not appear at all powdery so looks very natural and only has a very slight shimmer. I will tend to apply this very lightly for day wear but for a slightly more glam look just use a little more for an evening out. The colour of the shade I choose is a dusky pink which works well with my quite ...

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint 20/11/2014

Gelly Nails!

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint I try and paint my nails frequently to keep them looking good but have been getting a little fed up of polish either looking dull or chipping quickly. I therefore recently went on the hunt for some new nail polish that not only helped solve these problems but also was in a reasonable price range. On a trip to Boots I spotted the Barry M Gelly High Shine Nail Paint priced at just £3.99 a bottle The nail paint comes in a large variety of different colours, I opted for ‘passion fruit’ which is a bright coral colour. The polish comes packaged in a small square glass bottle allowing you to see the vibrant colour inside. The lid is sliver and screws onto the bottle with the application brush attached to the inside of the lid. The nail polish states that it provides a glossy finish in just one coat and has a chip resistant formula. To apply the nail polish it advises you to firstly apply a base coat, then shake the bottle well before applying ½ coats and to finish with a top coat. I have used this nail polish several times since I purchased it and have been very impressed with it. Firstly it is easy to apply, the lid of the bottle which also acts as the brush handle is easy to hold and the brush glides the polish over the nail easily and smoothly leaving an even coating. Even with one coat I am able to achieve a nice even covering and the colour is bright and glossy and my nail tip does not show through the colour. It also dries very quickly and hardens rather than being tacky ...

Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash Gel 20/11/2014

Face gel

Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Refreshing Facial Wash Gel I use facewash daily but am not brand loyal and tend to be price driven. My last purchase was of the Nivea daily essentials refreshing face wash gel which I spotted in my local Tesco store at a ‘reduced to clear price’. I actually paid just 89p for a 150ml bottle of this facewash which currently retails in Boots for £3.59. I cannot resist a bargain so purchased a couple of bottles as Nivea is a brand that I have used in the past and have been happy with. The facewash comes packaged in a blue tube with a flip top cap. The bottle stands on its cap which means it is always ready to dispense easily and sits neatly on the side of my sink or bath. You cant find all the detailed product information on the tube including ingredients listings and directions for use. The face wash is for normal and combination skin, is said to cleanse and hydrate and is dermatologically approved. To use the face wash you simply need to apply a small amount to your wet face and neck and gently rub in using small circular motions then rinse off with warm water. The face wash itself is light blue in colour and of a gel like consistency, you only need to use a small amount to get a good lather. The face wash does feel very gentle on my skin and afterwards it feels fresh and cleansed. I do have slightly combination skin with dry patches around my nose but using this facewash has seemed to help with my dry patches a little better and the rest of my skin feeling very soft after use. I have experienced no ...

Savlon Wound Wash 20/11/2014

Wash those wounds!

Savlon Wound Wash have a drawer at home designated to medical supplies and one item you will always find in there is antiseptic wound wash as my husband plays football and often comes home with cuts, grazes and scrapes. I always tend to purchase the Savlon wound wash as it is widely available from most large supermarkets or pharmacy’s. My last purchase of the Savlon wound wash was from Boots as a pre-holiday purchase and cost £2.99 for a 100ml bottle. The wound wash is described as a ‘antiseptic liquid for the treatment of cuts, grazes, insect bites, minor wounds, spots, minor burns and scalds.’ It comes packaged in a plastic bottle with a bright pink lid and has a pump action spray dispenser. There is a label wrapped around the bottle which details all of the necessary product information including directions for use, ingredients listings, possible side effects and information to consider before use. This spray is suitable for both adults and children and the directions state to hold the spray 2-4 inches from the affected area and flood it to wash away a debris. It is for use on skin only and can be reapplied 2-4 times per day. I have used this spray personally several times and absolutely love it. I am a total wimp when it comes to any type of pain and I think there is nothing worse than having to clean a cut or graze but using this spray does not make the wound sting at all and I have never had an infection in a wound after using it. The spray has no odour at all and comes out in a very ...
