I received a sample of Dr Lipp’s Original Nipple Balm For Lips, in it’s cool little charcoal coloured tube with a striking thin pink square on the front, and it’s retro style black and white writing. The striking packaging was the first thing I noticed, and I had already visualised it on my make-up dressing table; the design would fit right in with the rest of my favourite products! But when I read the title of the product, I must say I became rather dubious to say the very least. I thought, “Nipple balm? For the lips? Are you serious?”
Intrigued, I decided to read more about the product on the back of the packaging. Here’s what was written:
It was like Christmas morning opening my Selfridges Beauty Box! It was my first ever Beauty Box from Selfridges and boy, it was good! The current theme is ‘festival beauty’ and I must say, all the products are perfect festival must-haves! more »
Oh my word, how excited was I to see an awesome gift set with Paul and Joe hand cream which usually retails at £11.50 , with a free Paul And Joe cosmetic bag, ( with the iconic cat print )and free Paul And Joe Eye Treatment Duo Sachet! What a bargain!
When I received the gift set, the first thing I noticed was the quality of the cosmetic bag, it’s worth the £11.50 alone! The bag is made from a lightweight fabric, that has a silky feel to it, and is the type of fabric that is waterproof. It is zipped at the top and has a kitsch, gold charm that pulls the zip along, which has Paul And Joe engraved on it. Inside the bag, there’s a cream lining and on one of the sides, there is a little pocket to keep smaller items separate. This cosmetic bag is so well made, and has obviously been carefully designed. I love it!
If it’s good enough for Adele , I want to try it! That’s what I thought after reading an article where Adele sings the praises of this cult Weleda product! She said, ” I wear a lot of make-up when I’m working, so I like to use Skin Food by Weleda because I really feel replenished when I do”.
The Wild Rose Beauty Balm has become some-what of a cult favourite, and I can understand why! The moment I opened the cobalt blue jar containing 50g’s of pure rosy goodness, I was in love! The smell of roses is so delicious, it is reminiscent of a typical English garden, full of blossoming flowers. To me, this product is England, in a jar! It glides onto the skin with such ease, and nourishes, as you massage it into the skin. Only a small amount is needed, so the jar lasts a long time. It also comes with a free organic muslin cloth to enable you to try the various suggested uses. The balm is suitable for all skin types, and it has been dermatologically tested. It’s so versatile, I’m loving finding new uses for it every day! The organic wild rosehip seed oil is one of the richest natural sources of vitamins, including A, B1 and B2. These are essential nutrients, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which we need to maintain healthy skin.
Honestly, the very same cream that is used on the bottoms of babies’ around the country! Yes, and I will admit that I too use Sudocrem on a daily basis, and I LOVE it! I’m in good company too! Kimberly Walsh, from Girls Aloud, also admitted to being a fellow Sudocrem fan, she said: “Cheryl and I put Sudocrem on our spots before bed, so we’ve shared that beauty tip with the rest of the group.” Cheryl Cole later confirmed this by saying, ‘It really works!‘ Even in the US, the 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes said, ‘Using it is the best beauty tip ever. It’s amazing!’ There was even a whole scene on The Only Way Is Essex, where the advantages of Sudocrem were discussed at length, so to help ‘Diags’ ,a man from the show, who suffers from severe acne. Lauren Pope from the same show said, ‘It makes a great overnight mask!’
Whilst reading magazines, so many celebrities talk about their love of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, it has become something of a ‘Cult Classic Product’ . I always used to think I must try it. However, one day while watching a friend using it I saw the colour of the cream as it came out of the tube, (it’s a shade of apricot at first, then appears clear once applied), I was completely put off.
Ooh this yellow and blue packaging is so exciting from Neal’s Yard Remedies, as usually their packaging is just blue and white! That is what first attracted me to this hand cream, I’m ashamed to say. Like a bee to a sunflower, I am drawn in by the enticing, vivid, yellow tone of the new swanky packaging.
A nice, light, zesty handcream. Softens the hands straight after application, as it quicky absorbs and leaves a refreshing scent, which lasts for an impressive length of time. It’s not sticky like some hand creams and you don’t need a great deal at once. It contains peach kernel oil, vitamin e and shea butter for their moisturising properties and it feels like a treat for the hands. The ‘Rock Crystal’ extract is used for it’s rejuventating properties, it claims on the website. The packaging also makes this cream , that bit more luxiourious, with it’s elegant aesthetic.
Fabulous product! It’s an organic tea tree based balm which can be used for many purposes and all over the body. I use it for dry skin, itchy skin, use it after shaving my legs, a body moisturizer, for eczema, a facial cleansing balm, I use on split ends and rinse out, can be used on cold sores, bites and grazes to name just a few uses. There is always a pot of The Green Balm in my bag! It has a nice texture and soaks in well. It has a nice subtle smell of tea tree which isn’t as overpowering as the tea tree oil on it’s own. It usually costs about £4.99 for the 15ml handbag size or £9.99 for the 50ml larger pot. This company is firmly against animal testing, so another reason to buy this multipurpose wonder-balm!
