Review: Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Milk

Hey guys,

Today I am going to review the Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Milk.

Sorry about the grainy Iphone photo, my camera decided to have a fit and not work :(
This was actually in one of the sets that I received for Christmas, and I’ve only just got round to trying it last month.
The first thing is that the name is quite deceiving. Because it is called a body milk I was expecting a runny consistency, more like milk actually. However it is quite thick. I admit I do prefer the thicker consistency but I was just letting you guys know.
The next thing is the smell. It doesn’t have the normal Soap and Glory fragrance which I’ve come to love over the years. It smells like nutty yogurt. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a bad smell it’s just not my personal favourite.
However even though I’m not keen on the smell I can’t deny what a good moisturiser it is. I have been putting it on, before bed every night. I must admit I have noticed an improvement. Especially around my dry elbows. 
All in all I probably would re-purchase this because it works so well. However I think I would try and find another moisturiser that worked just as well with a scent I preferred more.
Let me know if you have tried this? Did it work for you? Do you like the smell?

Lush Happy Hippy Shower Gel

Hey guys,

Today I thought I would share my thoughts on the Happy hippy shower gel from Lush.

First things first I am always slightly dubious about multi use products, because I think surely it must do one thing better than the other? I must admit i was right in this case. Happy Hippy can be used as both a shower gel and a shampoo.
Now don’t get me wrong I love it as a shower gel. It foams really well and smells delicious. It smells citrusy but sweet at the same time. Kind of like lemon meringue pie!!
But I do not like to use it on my hair. Personally I felt like it didn’t really clean my hair, it just made it smell nice. I mean that could just be me, I like to give my hair a good scrub rather than a just a quick wash so maybe I am slightly biased I don’t know.
Anyway I would re-purchase this because I love the smell but I would definitely only use it as a shower gel.
Let me know if you have tried this, and what you thought?

June Favourites

Hey guys

Sorry about my complete lack of posts recently. I must admit I’m struggling find a balance between working full time, having a life and writing my blog.

I  really really enjoy writing this blog so I am determined to make this work. Anyway enough rambling let’s get on to the post. 

I went to Corfu in June for a week so my favourites are all things that I used whilst on holiday as well as the rest of the month.

Jungle Formula -This is one that I had to throw in there. I use a nearly a whole bottle of this for a week in Corfu.  Corfu is notorious for mosquitoes but I must taste delicious because I get eaten alive.  This stuff stinks, like really stinks, but it keeps the mosquitoes away so it’s worth it.
Nars Blush in Amour- I love this blush. It’s a gorgeous colour that can be worn every day and a little really goes a long way. That’s all I’m going to say for now as I am going to do a full review in the next couple of days.
Bourjois blush in shade 02- Sticking with the blush theme... This is another amazing blusher. It was my first ever cream blush and I love it. The colour is amazing for when you have a slight tan as it gives you a real natural glow. I ended up wearing it every night on my holidays I liked it that much. I do think its best applied with my finger to give that much more natural finish that I like but maybe that is because I don’t have the right brush?
M.A.C Vegas volt - I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this lipstick before because it’s one of my all time favourites anyway, but when the sun comes out I love it even more. Its bright orange colour that, again, looks gorgeous with a tan. I would definitely recommend that if you own this lipstick you take it on holiday with you.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation- I love love love this foundation. I have been wearing it most days since I purchased it about a month ago.  It’s a really nice consistency that blends really well. It is medium coverage but easily buildable to achieve a higher coverage. Another thing it actually has a nice smell, sort of fruity.
Soleil Tan De Chanel: This is another product that I use every now and then during the rest of the year, however in the summer it becomes my best friend. It’s a lovely shade that is not muddy and looks natural if it is blended in correctly. The only thing that gets me with this is the size. It’s really big and bulky which means it’s not great for travelling, if only they did it in a mini!
Treseme Heat Defence: This is a product that is talked about quite a bit on the internet that I’ve been curious about trying for a long time. So I bit the bullet and bought a travel size one to take away with me.  However since then I bought the full size one as well but I’ve enjoyed using it so much. It has a lovely smell and I do think it’s made a difference to my hair whilst straightening it. I haven’t noticed as many split or frazzled hairs since I’ve started using it.
There you go guys, that was my June favourites. I can’t actually believe that we are in July already, this year is going so fast I can practically here the Christmas carols!
What were your favourites this month?
