DISAPPOINTING PRODUCT SOAP AND GLORY SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT


I really don't like negative reviews but unfortunately this product just did not float my boat.  I love Soap and Glory they make some great body products and makeup so had high hopes when I purchased this number from the skin care range.  Scrub your nose in it come in a 100ml size £9 available at Boots.  Apparently this used to be cheaper and come in a bigger sized bottle but when they repackaged it to the lovely white it was made smaller and slightly more expensive not sure why.  

So this is know as the spotty girls favourite as it is a combination of scrub and mask formula with pore refining and AHA formula.  This is meant to be great for combination and oily skin so I thought great as sometimes my skin is combination and I love a scrub I thought I would give it a whirl.    So the texture of this  scrub is a thick paste which can be either massaged in like a scrub or left on the t-zone as a mask. 

 It contains natural Japanese fruits which brighten the skin, a type of mud to unclog the pores, AHA acids and clay to absorb the excess oils.  Phew what a mouth full so according to the box it is an all singing all dancing kind a product that has multi purposes.  Using it as a scrub I actually like how it makes your skin feel after you have used it as it feels really clean.  But I just can't get over the smell of the product as you feel like you are just putting on toothpaste on to your face as it has the same consistency, colour and scent.  I have tried to use this product on multiple occasions but I just can't get around this overpowering mint scent in a bad way as I actual like mint.  If they could change the smell to a different kind of mint I could like this product but for me I just can't such a shame it is soo overpowering maybe you could use it if you have a cold.

WHAT'S ON MY FACE LAST WEEK



Unfortunately I have been a little MIA this last month from this blog wholly due to how busy I have been with weddings and other events in my life and work.  Well fear not I am now back for the rest of the summer and this is what has been on my face last week!

  1. Bioderma hydrabio light cream - I have just started using this so far so good
  2. Kiko Mat base correction primer - with the heat this is a must have to stop the makeup sweating all over your face I use just in the T-zone.
  3. Bourjois Happy light foundation in shade 52 - really nice and light weight and lasts pretty well
  4. Sleek brow stylist in dark brown see my review here great product!
  5. Mac eyeshadow palette - This is a empty palette which I then take shades out of my 15 palette at the moment I have (left to right, Top then Bottom) Antiqued, Mulch, Honesty and brule. 
  6. Miss Manga Mascara in black angel (extra black mascara)
  7. Maybelline Brown drama in dark brown as I still need to uses a tamer
  8. Nars creamy concealer in Honey light3
  9. Hourglass Ambient lighting blush in Dim Infusion

SCRUB A DUB TUB : GARNIER BODY TONIC SCRUB



Earlier on in the year I had been using the lovely The Body Shop Brazil nut scrub and when I ran out unfortunately I could not get hold of it so there I was back on the search for a good body scrub.  I don't know about you but I like quite a gritty scrub as I like to feel it work the skin.  I picked up this Garnier Body Tonic smoothing scrub in the Supermarket (£3.57 on offer) as it was newish and from an initial wif smelt pretty good so it past the test.  It has a really fruity smell in a nice way not to manufactured or sweet.  This scrub left me with really noticeable results after the first use it left my skin really soft and the more I use it the better my skin looks and much smoother.  This is because the formula has sugar crystals inside which really work the skin and give a good exfoliation of the skin.  I am hard to please when it comes to scrubs as I like them gritty and this one is definitely a thumbs up from me!

WHATS ON MY NAILS : SEPHORA X IN UBER



If you saw my recent post 'Mini Sephora haul' (click here ) you will have seen I picked up this little bad boy.  I can't tell you how many times I have seen Tiffany D and several other You tubers rave about this polish and wanted to get my hands on one to try.  Unfortunately even though Sephora now shops to the UK you can't buy polish (boohoo) so when I went on a recent Jaunt to France this was the fist thing I made a beeline for in Sephora.  I picked up the Shade UBER which to me suggests tough and masculine, but no it is this bright almost neon orange/red that just pops.  Formula X range was new last year to Sephora and as I only have this one and nothing to compare it to I can not rave too much (yeah) only to say that I was not disappointed.  They give a really high shine gel finish I used two coats but one would of done I am just not the application pro so like two coats for making it even, it has really good staying power and I did not use a Top coat yep they are that shiny without!  Next time I will be stocking up on more colours love these polishes.

MINI SEPHORA HAUL


Sephora, Sephora how much I love you so much this shop is a mecca of all things lovely! I visited one of their stores in France recently and picked up a couple of bits.  Now I picked up a one of their new face masks (Eur3.99) in Honey I look forward to trying this out as it is meant to nourish and soothe the skin.  You will also see I picked up one of the formula X nail polishes that I have heard rave reviews about and wanted to try this is shade Uber and I will do a post shortly on this.  Also in my basket was a travel pot I thought would be handy for my hols and one of the much coveted sephora lip cream stains in shade #5 Infinite rose it
 is super long lasting and a lovely colour! I will update you how I get on.

WHATS ON MY NAILS :LANCOME ROSE BOUDOIR #375B


Last week I was the lucky winner of some lovely products via a makeup comp on the Beauty and the country (link here) and one of those items was this lovely nail polish from Lancome.  Now this is the first high end nail polish I have ever used and got to say I was impressed not sure I would fork out £13.00 for a nail polish though.  It is a lovely pink cerise shade with a glossy finish to it.  I have had nothing but lovely comments about the colour of this polish.  My only negative would be after painting two coats on to the nails I have used 1/5th of the bottle meaning I don't think it will last that long.  On a plus note it dried really quick and I have not had any chipping so far after 4 days of wear!

Have your tried any of the Lancome polishes?
