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: The Body Shop Shea Body Whip*

Now, you know I’m not usually one for body lotions, so when a mere lotion can impress me, it’s gonna be a good one! I wouldn’t normally have picked up the Body Shop Shea Body Whip, so I’m glad I got a chance to try it thanks to my fabulous #Oxmeet goody bag! Continue reading

Review: Boots Natural Collection Wild Strawberry Body Cream

I picked up this cream completely on impulse in Boots the other day – I’ve always liked the Natural Collection fruit products, and even though the Wild Strawberry doesn’t exactly smell like strawberries, it’s still a gorgeous scent. I’m not going to lie, though, what made me pick this cream up is how it looked. Take a look at these pretty swirly layers!

There are two different consistencies to this cream – a red gel and a white cream. It doesn’t stay in its neat swirls for long, and in fact it works better when you mix the two together. Not as pretty, but still pretty cool:

This is a reasonably thick moisturiser, and I find it sinks in quite quickly, although the dual texture does mean that it takes quite a bit of rubbing in to work both textures into the skin. The smell lingers softly on your skin – not enough to interfere with perfume, just enough to catch a scent of it occasionally.

P1020756Overall, this is a really lovely moisturiser for the price (£3.50). It ticks all my boxes – under £5, good smell, nice to apply, and pretty on the shelf! I’d definitely recommend these swirly creams to anyone looking for a nice light body moisturiser – I think I’ll be checking out the Mango and Papaya next!

Do you like the look of this dual-texture cream?

September Empties!

Yes, I’m way early, but the empties box was overflowing, and that always means it’s time for a post! Tons of use-ups in September – I didn’t finish any products in August, and I think they must all have been hanging on for this month!
