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:
I am in LOVE!
Wow, Daniel Sandler you’ve done it again! That guy really understands what we make up wearer’s, need and want, from our cosmetics!
So, Invisible Radiance Foundation and Concealer, what is it like?
Wow…that is all I can say about this product, (well that isn’t technically true, as this would be a rubbish review! But you get the point.)
As a person with many back problems, which have left me in a wheelchair, I am always looking for a new product that offers some kind of relief from aches and pains. I’ve tried the lot, and although helpful, nothing quite does the job properly! However, what I like about Weleda’s Arnica Massage Balm, is that it relaxes the mind as well as the muscles, which is equally as important when dealing with pain.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is not only the world’s first pre-shampoo; it’s a complete ‘ hair transforming magic-treatment’! I first came across Elasticizer in the pages of magazines, where celebrities after celebrities had named it a ‘must-have product’! The most recent of which is Georgia May Jagger who has revealed she can’t do without this wonder treatment in the pages of September’s issue of Cosmopolitan!
Since first reading about it’s amazing results, ridiculous amounts of people have recommended Elasticizer to me, including two hairdressers! So, I finally caved in and sampled the fast-becoming cult product, and I was far from disappointed.
I applied the recommended amount over sections of my wet hair, paying particular attention to dry areas. I then held the hair up with a towel round it (I didn’t have a cap), and left it on for 20 mins before washing it out. I was pleasantly surprised when I removed the towel, my hair was softer than I have ever felt. Once I had used shampoo and conditioner my hair was incredibly clean, soft and shiny – perfect!
So after all the hype about ‘The World’s finest top coat‘ Seche Vite, I was ridiculously excited to try out my latest sample. After applying a base coat and colour, I applied a layer of this renowned fast-drying top coat, and left my nails to dry.
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 »
Katie Holmes is clearly, very pretty naturally! Do you remember her from her iconic Dawson’s Creek days? She has always had that, ‘girl next door’ look about her. She seems so wholesome, and beautiful, both inside and out! However, in these photos for Bobbi Brown, she just looks phenomenal! She has been updated with smoky eyes, strong brows and dusky pink lips. Her complexion is even more flawless than usual, with some added colour too. It really suits her! I am fast learning, Bobbi Brown is a genius!
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!
Oh how I have fallen in love with these lipsticks! I was so excited when Neal’s Yard announced that they were bringing out a range of lipsticks! However, I must admit I was slightly apprehensive, their skincare and bath and body cosmetics are so amazing, was their make-up range going to live up to such a high standard? After a few weeks of trialing their lipsticks I can firmly announce that yes, they have done it again!
