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

Review: Caudalie Miel de Vigne Hand Cream* and Nourishing Body Lotion*

Just a quick little review for you today, of some lovely Caudalie bits that I was lucky enough to receive in my #Oxmeet goody bag. I know, I keep going on about #Oxmeet, but it was such an amazing day, and I’ve never seen such generosity from brands! I was particularly excited to get to try the Caudalie Miel de Vigne Hand and Nail Cream*, and the Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion*, because I’d heard so much about the brand on other people’s blogs. Suffice to say, I now understand what all the hype is about! Continue reading

Review: I Love… Body Butters in Mango and Papaya, and Raspberry and Blackberry

I recently found myself in Oxford without any moisturiser at all, can you believe it? I was forced to try some new body butters (what hardship), and ended up buying two! The I Love range is something that’s caught my eye in Superdrug on several occasions, but I’d never tried anything apart from their lip balm. I ended up buying I Love… Mango and Papaya and I Love… Raspberry and Blackberry body butters, and here’s how they hold up in my book. Continue reading

Instant Repurchases!

Everyone has those few products that they are completely loyal to, their Holy Grail items that they are lost without. And if one of them finishes, it’s a nervous rush to Boots to get a new one! Here are my staples – if one of these runs out, then there’s no question I’ll be re-buying it immediately!

No prizes for guessing what the first of my ‘Instant Repurchases’ is: yep, it’s Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo and Conditioner. I’ve barely used anything else since I bought my first bottle, and I’ve repurchased it six or seven times. Something about it just really suits my hair! I won’t bore you by rehashing my original review, so I’ll just leave a link to it (hint: it’s glowing). Continue reading

Review: Eye Of Horus Jewel Amethyst Goddess Pencil*

From the moment you see this Eye of Horus box, you know you’re going to be in for a treat. Look at the luxurious black and gold packaging! I love the Ancient Egyptian theme they’ve got going on, and it’s done in a very sleek and swish fashion, while still being fun and original. This is the Jewel Amethyst Goddess Pencil*, which is perfectly in line with the Egyptian theme, what with all the kohl they wore.  Continue reading

Review: Nip + Fab Circulation Fix Body Scrub*

I always approach new body scrubs with a bit of trepidation, because so many of them are disappointingly weak and un-scrubby. There was no need to fear in the case of this Nip + Fab Circulation Fix Body Scrub*, though, because it is actually a good scrubby scrub!
