The Review

This is great for before self tanning as it’s more like a shower gel polish. It doesn’t leave any kind of residue on the skin so ideal for fake tanners! It contains small round beads that when buffed into damp skin, exfoliate away dead skin cells and flaky patches gently but effectively whilst the the liquid foams up beautifully leaving you clean, smelling gorgeous and smooth. This product is affordable and available in lots of other fruity OR floral scents so there’s something for everyone. I went for fruity and got the Satsuma scent 🙂

 

Worth the Money?

Yep. As usual, The Body Shop hits the mark with this product. Affordable, works and smells yummy. What’s not to like?

£10 for a big tube – 200ml – available here:

The Body Shop Beautifying Oil

What is it?

An all purpose moisturising beauty oil that can be used on the face, body and hair.

 

The Review:

This oil comes in lots of different smells varying from fruity ones to floral ones. It’s a really deeply nourishing mixture of nut oils that are all responsibly sourced and can be used on the face, body and hair.

I personally have not used it on my face for two reasons – the first being that anything that is fairly strongly scented I get nervous about putting on my face and the second is that I have combination skin so I don’t want or need to be putting anything that’s oily on it. If I had dry skin then I would definitely give it a go though as this oil sinks in beautifully and doesn’t just sit on the skin and leave you feeling sticky.

This product is amazing on the body, it moisturises the skin without leaving that annoying greasiness that I hate so much! I can apply the oil and put my clothes straight on without it being uncomfortable or staining my clothes and for once they don’t get stuck to me either yay! It sinks in so quickly and smells AMAZING! There is definitely a scent for everyone.

This oil also works on the hair really nicely too, helping to nourish and protect it from frizz. I like to put a really small amount in towel dried hair, focusing on the ends and find that this really helps it look smooth and frizz free. You can also use this on dry hair but be VERY careful with this. The first time I did this, I used too much and the ends just looked greasy 😦 You need a TINY amount on dry hair which you should rub between your hands first and spread evenly through the ends. I have discovered you can use this oil as a hair treatment by putting it into dry hair and sleeping it and washing it out in the morning, or just leave it in for 30/45 mins and wash out the same evening. This achieves super healthy, shiny, smooth looking hair.

Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray

 

What is it?

A heat protection spray infused with keratin that claims to protect from heat styling, make hair sleeker, shinier and more manageable without weighing down the hair.

 

The Review

To be completely honest, I’m not going to string this out as there’s not much to say really! This does exactly what it says it does on the bottle.

The spray bottle is lovely and this stuff comes out in a beautiful fine mist. It smells lovely, doesn’t weigh my hair down, doesn’t leave it sticky in any way and makes my hair feel super soft.

A beautiful smooth and shiny finish even if only used when blow drying – perfect!

 

Worth the Money?

This can be purchased from Boots or Superdrug or even larger chain supermarkets (as usual) for the very reasonable price of £5.99. I love this and will be repurchasing it full price, HOWEVER, Superdrug has it for only £2.95 at the moment so I suggest you all go and grab some while it lasts! Even at full price though, this product is fantastic.

This product is part of a range so if you fancy giving the treatment mask or shampoo or conditioner a go then leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts! I have been using the shampoo as well and I really like it 🙂

Favourite Perfumes

Intro:

Just thought I would do a post on my favourite perfumes. These are the ones that I wear a lot and always come back to. I’m not usually a really floral perfume kind of girl as I tend to prefer softer musky scents.

 

 

Elie Saab, Le Parfum:

This is the first ever perfume from Lebanese designer Elie Saab, a sweet but spicy floral mix that focuses on both jasmine and orange blossom but surprises with a warm patchouli and honey base.

 

 

Viktor and Rolf, Flowerbomb:

This yummy scent has top notes of green tea and bergamot, middle notes of jasmine, african orange flower, freesia, rose and orchid, and base notes of musk and patchouli. It’s not one of those sickly sweet fragrances, it’s a rich, expensive sweetness complimented by the musk.
Calvin Klein, Eternity Summer:

When I first tried this perfume I immediately picked up on the orange blossom first and then the musk, it’s a warm, feminine fragrance and lovely and light – as the name says, it really is perfect for summer.

If you like the original ‘Eternity’ then this is the perfect scent for a little something different, its more fruity and floral and the balance between the two is perfect. I have never been a fan of overly floral scents and like the fact that this one has just a hint. I’m completely in love with it!

 

 

The Body Shop, White Musk:

White Musk is a comfortable and velvety female fragrance. It opens with notes of ylang-ylang, galbanum and basil, followed by jasmine, rose, musk and lily,and finally settling with a base of musk along with jasmine, rose, iris, amber, patchouli, vetiver, peach, oakmoss and vanilla. It’s a beautiful, soft, musky, feminine scent.

 

 

The Body Shop, White Musk Libertine:

This has a turkish delight kind of scent with a lovely waft of orchid. It’s a fairly sweet but not sickly, slightly floral, musky fragrance that’s more girly than the original.

If you’re interested in purchasing any of these yummy fragrances I suggest you take a look on amazon as there are usually some amazing deals!
