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 ...

Tesco Finest Beef Lasagne 19/11/2014

The best ready made lasagne....

Tesco Finest Beef Lasagne I am part of the Tesco Orchard program so was lucky enough to receive a voucher recently for £3.00 off one of there finest ready meals. I opted to purchased the 700g Finest Lasagne Al Forno which was priced at £5.00 meaning I only have to pay £2.00 for it which I thought was a great saving for a meal to serve two. The lasagne was packaged in a foil tray with clear plastic film and a cardboard sleeve covering the centre of the lasagne but allowing the rest to be visible which I thought was great as it is nice to actually be able to see the product you are purchasing and I will say the lasagne looked very appealing. On the cardboard sleeve you can find all the detailed product information including ingredients listings, allergy advice and cooking instructions. The cooking instructions are very clear and I simply had to remove the sleeve and film lid and pop into my oven for 25-30 minutes from the fridge. The lasagne cooked perfectly in the suggested time and I was able to remove it easily form the tray to serve. Myself and my husband shared the lasagne which went perfectly with a side salad and garlic bread. We were both very impressed with the taste, the free range egg pasta was cooked to perfection and there was a generous amount of minced beef in a lovely rich ragu sauce. There was just the right amount of béchamel sauce to compliment the rich beef ragu and the cheese topping finished this dish off perfectly. This lasagne was by far the nicest ready made lasagne I have ...

Radox Relax Bath Soak lavender and Waterlily 17/11/2014

Purple bubbles....

Radox Relax Bath Soak lavender and Waterlily I love having a bubble bath especially in the cold winter months and am quite a fan of the Radox range of bath products. One of my last purchases from the Radox range was the ‘Relax’ bath soak which was on special offer in Boots priced at just £1.00 for a 500ml bottle. The Relax bath soak has a lavender and waterlilly scent said to help ‘calm your mind and relax your body’. The bath soak comes packaged in clear plastic bottle allowing you to see the dark purple bath soak inside which looks very pretty on the side of my bath. The label on the front of the bottle is also decorated with flowers and on the back of the bottle you can find all the detailed product information including directions for use and ingredients listings. To use the bath soak you simply need to pour it under warm running water. The smell of the bath soak when you open the bottle is lovely and a perfect combination between the strong lavender and subtle waterlilly. I love the amount of bubbles this bath soak creates and that it gives the water a slightly purple tint. Whilst running the bath my whole bathroom is filled with the lovely scent of the lavender and waterlilly. I will say that when in the bath the fragrance does seem to fade a little and is not as strong as I expected it to be and therefore doesn’t make me feel as relaxed as I think I would be if the scents were a little stronger as I do normally find that lavender does have a soothing/calming effect. This bath soak does make my skin feel ...

Dove Firming Nourishing Lotion 17/11/2014

Firm skin in a bottle

Dove Firming Nourishing Lotion use a body moisturiser on a regular basis and although I am happy with a basic nourishing moisturiser I do like the ones that contain a ‘firming’ aspect to them as I think every woman wants to have nice smooth, firm skin especially in problematic areas. I came across the Dove firming body lotion on a trip to my local Superdrug store where it had been reduced to clear so decided to give it a try. I paid just 99p for a 250ml bottle of the firming body lotion which normally retails for around £3.99 so I think I really did get a bargain. The body lotion comes packaged in a white plastic bottle with a flip top lid. There are labels on the front and back of the bottle which provide all the detailed product information including ingredients listings, directions for use and the science behind how the body lotion works. It claims on the bottle that body lotion combines rich nourishment and white tea extract to boost your skins elasticity making it appear more toned and smooth after just a single application. I have used this body lotion several times since purchasing it and have been quite impressed. Obviously I did not expect a miracle from a simple body lotion but for me any firming effect would be a bonus. The lotion itself is white in colour and has a light and delicate fresh scent. It is a lovely thick consistency and easy to dispense from the bottle. The lotion smoothes onto my skin with ease with a little going a long way and absorbs quickly which I love as I hate having ...
