Dove Intensive Nourishment Hand Cream 23/10/2014

Dove hands

Dove Intensive Nourishment Hand Cream When I was younger, I never really bothered with hand cream but as I have started to age a little, my hands have started to show signs of being neglected so hand cream has been something that I would say I have become a little obsessed with, so much so that I apply several times a day. Because of how many times I use it, I get through bottles at quite an alarming rate so whenever I see any with a decent price promotion, I always stock up. One brand however which I do like (for any types of cream) is Dove, so when I spotted this hand cream with 50% off, I had to snap some up. I had never tried the Intensive version before but as I have used the others and been very happy with the results, I was hoping I wasn't going to be disappointed. The cream The cream comes in a white, flip top lid bottle and it stands upside down (the lid it at the bottom) and to the front of the bottle is the Dove logo. The cream itself is a really nice consistency; not too thick that you cannot rub it in or too thin that it runs straight off my hands when I dispense it. Rubbing in was really easy too as I found it absorbed really quickly and did not leave that greasy and slippery feeling other creams I have used in the past have. It has a really nice aroma too, I could not pick out an exact note, but just that it is nice subtle floral (but not old fashioned smelling), the fragrance lasts for quite a few hours too. In my opinion, the cream has a really nice texture and feels quite expensive but best ...

Disney Frozen Anna Sparkle Doll 10/10/2014

We Love Anna

Disney Frozen Anna Sparkle Doll Ever since my daughter watched Frozen just before Christmas last year, she has been huge fan. She received Elsa for her birthday and then as a treat for doing well in school, she received Anna in the summer. Price and availability There are lots of different versions available, the one we have is from the Disney store and cost £15. When you compare this to the cost of similar sized dolls, it is a little on the expensive side and I would say you are definitely paying for the name and brand. Other versions are available and priced at £15 - £20 from places such as Toys R Us, Argos etc. I prefer the Disney version as I find the quality better and also, I think that the doll resembles the character more. The doll Anna measures just about 30cm tall and she comes dressed in her blue gown, knee high black boots, pink cape and boots, all of which can be removed which Lauren loves as she likes changing the clothes on all her dolls. The clothes feel well made and durable as they haven’t shown any signs of deterioration. The attention to detail on the doll is amazing and there is no doubt which character and film this is from. Her facial features are identical to the character, with her little button nose, striking green eyes and makeup. Her eyes really do bring her to life; they are decorated with lovely long lashes and matching green eye shadow. Our opinion As with Elsa, this was an immediate hit with Lauren and has barely put the doll down since she received it. She loves to ...

The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Butter 06/10/2014

Cherry Butter

The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Butter Just after Christmas, I spotted that the Body Shop has reduced the cherry body butter to less than £4 for a 200ml tub, although I had never purchased the cherry fragrance before, I am a big fan of the strawberry and thought that this wouldn't be too dissimilar so I decided to buy a few. The butter The butter comes in a bright red pot with a screw top lid; the fragrance is easily identifiable by the image of mouth watering cherries covering the lid. When it comes to any type of fragrances, for me, the fruitier, the better and this one doesn't disappoint, as soon as I unscrew the lid, the aroma of those juicy cherries starts to emerge from the pot. The fragrance is quite strong, so much so that you don't really need to put the pot to your nose to know what fragrance it is. Unlike a lot of creams, the fragrance of the butter is really realistic; it doesn't smell synthetic at all like some cheaper brands I have used in the past. Just like the name says, this is just like butter except it is a pale pink colour, applying is easy and the butter glides over my skin and absorbs really easily and quickly. The only downside of the butter coming in a tub I find is to apply, I have to dip my fingers into the tub, and this means that I get the butter under my nails! The results are that my skin feels nice and smooth however unlike the rest of the butters I have used, this one doesn't seem to hydrate as much as the others; the skin on my lower legs tends to get a little dry from shaving ...

BSkyB Infrared Remote control for Sattelite receiver, TV 04/10/2014

My Sky Remote

BSkyB Infrared Remote control for Sattelite receiver, TV One company I have been loyal to since I moved into my first house is Sky, and for a long time, we have had Sky+ as part of our package. The remote The remote has a slight hourglass shape to it which I feel makes it easy to hold, the newer versions are silver against a black background (however we have an older version which is all navy blue in colour). I must admit, I prefer this colour choice as it looks quite modern and sleek in my living room. The back plate has a rubber texture to it making it non slip which is ideal when I put on my TV stand or shelf. The buttons The buttons are made from soft rubber and I don’t have to apply much pressure when operating. The buttons are mainly black however there are a few coloured ones on the remote – these are normally buttons which operate a key activity (such as record, box office, play etc). What I like about this remote is that the first button at the top of the remote is for the TV, this allows me to operate the remote on my TV, not just my sky box, I mainly use this for turning my TV on and off meaning that I haven’t got to have two remotes. To the side of the TV button is the Sky option and then the on/off button. Below these are four pale blue buttons; TV Guide, Box Office, Services and Interactive, each one offers a menu behind it which is really easy to follow by using the up/down/left/right buttons which are situated in the middle of the remote. I mainly use the TV guide option, but occasionally we have used Box ...
