Product Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends

Hi guys,

I bought the Garnier Ultimate Blends Sleek Restorer Shampoo and Conditioner in my haul last week and I have used it several times since then. I have worn my hair up, straight and curled since I have used this product.


I have had no frizzy bits at all which I am really pleased about. It smells lovely with the coconut oil and cocoa butter, the smell doesn't last though. I am really looking forward to having frizz free hair for a while and hope it lasts.

The conditioner is amazing too. My hair was so soft after using it and not too soft that I couldn't curl it after. Just an amazing product. I also bought this when it was half price too, get yours from Boots. They also do a hair oil and a one minute treatment (all on offer at the minute!!)

See you soon,

Product Review: Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub

Hi guys,

So many times I use a product over and over again and I just don't get round to shouting from the rooftops about it. Recently, I realised that I use this product over and over again. This is The Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Scrub. When I buy Soap and Glory, I usually just go for the travel size, because then I get to use the product and if I don't like it, I don't panic over the money I have wasted. £2.50 is not bad to be wrong about a product. 


This product is amazing. I love the smell, I like the consistency, I feel like it really gets in there and takes away all of the dead skin and it really makes a difference if I use this over something else when tanning afterwards. I have terrible feet too, I am on my feet all day so they are quite hard and I have a lot of dry skin but this seems to make a difference to them as well! I feel as if it didn't do such a good job, I would still use it because it smells so good.

Overall, a good product and next time I buy, I'll go big! You can get yours here!

Rita Ora Rimmel 60 seconds ...

Hi guys,

So, I went to Boots the other day with the sole purpose of purchasing some of the Rita Ora nude coloured nail polishes. Rita Ora has got a gorgeous nail polish range for Rimmel 60 Seconds and they all have really cool bedtime names!



The colours I picked up were Lose your Lingerie, Let's Get Nude and Pillow Talk. I just love the names. There are a lot of neon colours in the range but I have been trying to go pastel lately so I bought the lighter shades.




This shade is Pillow Talk. I love it. It is very thick and a bit gloopy, but I think it has to be this consistency to create such a pigmented colour. The colour is amazing and I got loads of compliments on it, people saying it is such a pretty colour. I just love it. I tried Let's Get Nude also since then (didn't take a photograph as it was on my toes yuk!) but I found that that one needed a lot of layers to create the same look as the fingernails. 

I would definitely recommend this polish and I will be wearing Lose your lingerie next so I will be popping a photo on too if I remember!

Also, if I forgot to mention that when I bought these they were only £3.69 from Boots and they were three for two! BARGAIN!

See you soon xox

Product Review: Garnier Moisture Match

Hi guys,

I have got a product review for you. I have been using the Garnier Moisture Match Shine be Gone Mattifying fresh cream for about four weeks now. Every morning, I use this before putting on my usual makeup. It says it should keep you shine clear.



Well, I am very sorry to disappoint but every day come 1pm, I have had to pop some powder on my face as I am glowing like a beacon. I do have combination skin. Sometimes it can be quite dry, sometimes it is extremely oily. However, this cream seems to bring out the worst in my skin. I have persevered but I am sorry, this product just does not work for me. Has anybody else tried it out there? Does anybody have a product that works better than this?

Soap and Glory: Trick and Treatment

Hi guys,

So I have been using this concealer for quite a while now and I cannot believe I haven't reviewed it yet. I actually got this given off a friend because she didn't think it worked for her. It is the soap and glory trick and treatment for dark circles. I do suffer with dark circles and I have never really found anything to combat them. It just normally looks like I have dark circles with makeup on the top of it. 





This trick and treatment concealer is amazing. I put on my foundation as usual and I then put on the concealer on top - you have to be careful to only use two light dabs as too much can turn it a funny colour as it has a yellow pigment in it. I put on a limited amount and then rub it in with my fingers. It leaves a dewy glowing look to my eye.  Also, I find that it actively works to help get rid of my dark circles, not just cover them. 

10/10 product for me and I will definitely be repurchasing it!

You can grab one from Boots for £9.00

See you soon xox

Product Review: Rimmel 9-in-1 BB Cream

Hi guys,

I have been using this product for a while now. I absolutely love it! I usually pop on a bit of my moisturiser, (it changes but at the moment I have been using the Garnier Moisture Match) then I use this to provide a bit of a base layer on my face. I normally just put on a thin layer of powder or bronzer over the top and avoid any other cream products. However, if I am going on a night out, I tend to use a liquid foundation over the top for staying power and also just to look different to my every day look.





I love this product. I always get it in Light, however I found that they do a Very light on Feel Unique which might be better for my pale skin tone.

Product Description: Rimmel's 1st 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup 9 in 1 results: Primes, moisturises, minimizes pores, conceals, covers, smoothes, mattifies, brightens, and helps protect. Lightweight, ultra comfortable formula instantly gives a flawless finish.
However, the only problem that I do have with the product is that is isn't enough coverage for a day when my skin is particularly spotty, in fact sometimes it can look worse. It is such a cheap price though at £6.99 from Boots that I definitely get my money's worth and usually with Rimmel, you get a free product when you spend a certain amount or they will be on a 3 for 2 offer. It also has a SPF 25 which means that you can be safe at the same time too.

See you soon,
