Avon Nailwear Pro Review: The Naked Truth

Hi guys,

So I have to say that Avon nail varnish are some of my favourite nail varnishes. You always get a decent size bottle, some good long wear out of it and the shades are absolutely incredible.

I decided to try a nude shade due to usually going for a red or pink and I had not yet tried it - however, my results are mixed.

As you can see form my fingers, this polish is a lovely shade, it had really good coverage and had a lovely glossy almost gel like consistency to it. 

However, this picture was taken only a day after I had painted my nails - as you can see there has been some chipping and the finish is no where near what it was originally. I am really disappointed in the quality of these.

Avon has now relaunched this brand into the Mark range so I am hoping the quality will improve for second day finishes!

Have you got any products you were excited for, but were disappointed?

Lush Bath Bomb Review: Sakura

Hi guys,

If you read my blog regularly, you know I love Lush products. I recently did a haul with the new season products and so far have What Came First bath bomb.

This bath bomb is the Sakura bomb and it smells divine. The smell that comes from it is literally the smell you get when you walk into the mall and know that Lush is approaching. It is quite a strong scent.

As you can see, I popped the bath bomb into my bath and it dissolved with a lot of foaming, ending up in a pink bath. This bomb is inspired by the Japenese cherry blossoms and feature jasmine, lemon and mimosa oil - all which create the stunning scent.

Now as I have previously mentioned, I adore Lush bath bombs, but I think I am going to make sure to buy more bubble bars in the future so I get  lovely bubbly bath instead. The bath bombs create more of a coloured water with a relaxing feel. My skin felt super soft after this bath.

Do you have a fave lush product?

What came first ... Lush bath bomb review

Hi guys,

I picked up quite a few things at Lush recently - you can take a peek here in this post.

One of the seasonal items which was part of Easter was the "What came first ..." bath bomb. This was the spotty version but they also did in a stripe!

First impressions is the bomb has a stunning refreshing smell. It has a clear citrusy scent and has lemon and grapefruit oils too. 

When I first dropped it in the bath, it created a pink colour to the water which swiftly changed to orange as the whole bomb fizzed out. The distinct citrus smell stayed in the bath for the entire time.

The only thing that puts me off repurchasing any bath bomb is the lack of bubbles. Don't get me wrong, this bath bomb was super cleansing and moisturising and it made the bath water feel softer and more luxurious, but is a bath really a bath without bubbles?

You can purchase one here at Lush for £6.95.

Have you got any amazing lush products you have tried??
