June Empties!

It’s empties time again, and I’ve only got a small crop for you (well, at least by my usual standards). Shall we get going?

Haircare to start, and there’s a bottle of the usual, Herbal Essences Bee Strong conditioner, which you know that I love (review here), but I also went through a fair amount of other conditioner too! I like the Sainsbury’s Basics Conditioner for finishing off left over shampoo – it’s cheap and it does the job. There are no frills, but I like the plain clean smell, and when you go through as much conditioner as I do, the litre bottle is quite handy. I also changed things up a little and went for Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine conditioner, which is nice but not as weighty as the Bee Strong.  Continue reading

Review: The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette

When the weather started to get nicer, and I was still trapped inside revising, I couldn’t help but pick myself up a little treat to make me think of summer. I had already fallen in love with The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry range when I bought the shower gel, which I reviewed here. I loved it so much, I just had to get hold of the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette, so I could smell like raspberries all the time! Continue reading

Review: Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel*

Recently I’ve been trying out this cute little sample of Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel* from my #Oxmeet goody bag. This is such a cult product, and I was really excited to get a taste of the high-end skincare range. Unfortunately, this didn’t float my boat as much as I was hoping – but I suppose that’s good for my purse!

Review: Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser*

I was recently sent a sample of the Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser to try, and oh, is it heading straight for Holy Grail status. You know how much I love honey scents and products, and this is a great addition to my skincare routine. Goodbye, Boots Botanics, I’m in love with the bees! Continue reading

April/May Empties!

So I didn’t do an empties post last month, but I’ve collected plenty of stuff to show you since my last post! I’ve been collecting it all in my cute Oxmeet tote bag from The Blogger Programme – much more stylish to have on the bathroom door handle than a plastic bag! Shall we get going? Continue reading

Review: Fake Don’t Bake Fake Natural Look Tanning Cream*

A fact for you: I am very, very pale.

When I was younger, I was totally nut-brown, but as I’ve grown up, I’ve had to accept that I’ve become a pale ghosty. I actually quite like it, but that doesn’t stop me experimenting from time to time with fake tan, to try and lose some of that Tippex glow on my legs.

It rarely works – so how did the Fake Don’t Bake Natural Tanning Cream* fare?
