I love a bit of online window shopping and dreaming about the products I want or just think are pretty! My wishlist is ever growing, reading my bloglovin feed is constant a inspiration of products I want to try or looks I want to recreate.
Can’t believe here we are at Tuesday again! Got good stuff on this weekend with a wedding and a Rum tasting class, so wishing for the it already! I did join google+ over the last few days, I know I am a bit slow to the party, still trying to work it out! If you use it would appreciate tips!
Now on to the review, I go through phases with body butters, I am either using one religiously or not at all. My current favourite is the Japanese Cherry Blossom one from the Bodyshop.
I used to love the Bodyshop when I was in my early teens, bath pearls which could be bought pick n’ mix were style popular stop on the Saturday trip to the shops with friends. These are long gone now and I like the new Bodyshop and its body butters galore. When browsing in store, I am usually attracted to the gorgeous fruity scents such as Mango and Passion Fruit. However, when I actually come to use the product although I love them as I apply, I don’t enjoy smelling of passion fruit or similar all day- I know that might sound a little weird!
This body butter as a much fresher, floral smell which is enjoyable when applied but doesn’t overpower later in the day. It fades away nicely to make way for perfume.
The cream itself is lovely and thick. I usually apply it when I am just out the shower and my skin is still slightly wet to lock in the moisture. It blends easily and is absorbed quickly. I have found that it has made a difference to my skin. I used to have small dry patches on my upper arms and these are now gone since using this product. It also gives my body an all over soft feeling. It has lasted really well as you don’t need that much to butter up!
If you are going to shop at the Bodyshop make sure you have a wee search for a discount code, they always seem have promotions either online or in store. I actually got this one free as part of a buy a product get a body butter free promotion they had in the summer.
What is your favourite body butter?
I will be posting Tuesday,Thursdays & Sundays!
Wanted to share a mini drugstore/high street as picked up a few things I am excited to use. It was just a quick trip round Superdrug as my friends were up for a browse of the shops after a spot Afternoon Tea and all their purchases made me want to pick up a wee something too!
First up is Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 405: Loafer Lover For You (£3.69) my friend was wearing this when we met and it instantly caught my eye. It is a beautiful rich bright blue with a wonderful shine. I have lots of other colours from this range, they always paint on easily and last well. Can’t wait to try this, I will get a picture up when I do!
Next is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. (£3.99) I have read alot of positive chatter about this on the blogsphere and finally got round to picking this up. To be used on top of my foundation to set and hopefully increase wear time. I went for the shade 001 Transparent.
It was a 3 for 2 on Rimmel products at Superdrug so of course i had to pick something else. I was very tempted to get another nail polish but decided I should resist and try something new. I picked this Scandeleyes, Eye Shadow Paint in Rich Russett (£4.99). To be honest I hadn’t heard of this product before, but liked it when swatched.
It is metallic when first applied but blends to a more semi-matte which I liked. I don’t think i would wear the un-blended colour but love it when smudged.
Finally, I bought a Revon Lip Butter in 001 Pink Truffle (£7.99). I love the Lip butter range, they glide on with nourishing feel of lip balm and have a nice colour pay-off. I though this colour was nice for everyday and would be suitable for the office.
As I mentioned this trip followed afternoon tea with the girls, I tweeted a pic of the feast of cakes, pastries, tray bakes and sandwiches we enjoyed if you are interested. I really love afternoon tea, very glad it is in fashion at the moment as it means so many more places offer it! Especially love it when served with a cheeky glass of fizz or cocktails!
