BOTANY HAND TREATMENT LOTION ORANGE BLOSSOM REVIEW

Being busy and having minimum time to spend on pampering myself and I often give little notice into trying to find the best brands. But on the search for quality reviews here is where our journey begins.

Today I will be reviewing the BOTANY hand treatment lotion orange blossom. I initially received this hand lotion in a gift set. However have to say it is one of a kind.

Now about the product itself it is quite a light lotion and was easily spread around the palm of my hand, however I did find that it was greasy upon application for a little while.
I used the product itself for around 2 weeks to judge its effectiveness and found that areas of my skin had become more moist and less crackled. There was not a dramatic change of how I would have wished to use as that is what I am on the search for however it was worthwhile and did the job.

What I liked about the hand lotion ?
  • The biggest factor was the scent as I feel that scent is a big thing that  value, and I did find that this lotion was one where you didn't really have to wear a perfume as the scent is the lotion is powerful.
  • It had a soft feather like texture upon applying.
  • It spread quickly upon both palms.
  • The packaging was great (very cute) I feel it was more suitable than a bottle and very easy to apply.

The downsides of the product ?
  • When applying the lotion it remained on my hand and left them quite greasy.

Therefore overall it was an effective lotion and kept my skin hydrated over the two weeks however I found myself hesitating to put it on during the day where I needed it due to how greasy it was and more often applying it just once in the morning and evening. So I find myself still on the search for a good lotion.

SOAP & GLORY ARCHERY BROW TINT AND PENCIL REVIEW

Hey guys im back with another review :)
Nothing skin care related just make up !
Now I adore this pencil I have to say. Now as soon as I was aware that this pencil even existed as a product and big fan of soap and glory I headed straight to my local boots store and ever since purchasing it I keep going back !!
Being someone who has always had quite thin and fine hairs after using this pencil I no longer felt it.


What I like about it ?
  • It gives amazing coverage
  • Very satisfying after use
  • Can be applied really quickly it takes me less that 3 minutes !!
  • My best satisfaction from this pencil is that with one use it lasts throughout the day and your eyebrows stay filled.
  • Affordable
Why would I recommend it ?

Well the reason I am so in love with the pencil is because of how natural it is so if your someone like me and loves the look of natural looking make up this pencil is for you ! Not only that if your someone with little time in the morning to apply makeup this would definitely be the pencil for you.

How much does it cost?
Again same as the other review it costs around £10 however at the moment it is on offer at boots for £8.00.

Before ending this review I would just like to say all opinions are my own and I was not sponsored in any way, they are just my thoughts on this pencil because I have been loving it recently.

BAKER ROSS CRAFTS

Today my review will be a family review!!!
I've been waiting ages for this - as I have not been able to review anything that is something for the whole family. Christmas time is family time in our household and what can be any more better than a nice hot chocolate and some crafts to make with the kids. With older and younger kids I noticed that this was a great activity for kids of all ages . Teenager to toddler worked for all the kids !
The crafts we made included -
  • A snowman mosaic coaster kit (pack of 6)
  • Snowflake glitter wands kit (pack of 4)
  • Christmas stocking sewing kits (pack of 3)
  • penguin gift bag kits (pack of 4 )
  • Christmas pom pom decoration kits (pack of 3 )
  • Christmas owl sequin decoration kits (pack of 3 )
  • Reindeer handprint crown kits (pack of 4 )
All these products can be bought on the Baker ross website - http://www.bakerross.co.uk/christmas/christmas-craft-kits
You can but their Christmas craft kits and also check out their others they have a sale on right now !!

The first Craft the little ones were excited in making were the wands . They took around 10 to 15 minutes to make and were really fun !!!


We then went on to make the reindeer handprint crown kits. This is where my toddler became very engaged with what we were doing . He still wont put down his crown , at least he's kept busy :) .

These are the crafts we have made up to Christmas and are keeping to make the other crafts with our little ones friends on their Christmas party. To keep all the party guests happy and to give them a little something to take back .

NIVEA PRODUCT REVIEWS!



Whenever it comes to Nivea I always just think my life! They are product that I have always used well to be fair I have just used their crème my whole life and never really looked into trying their other products now I have there's no going back !
I have received three of their products.
I know that they are always improving their ranges but just wasn't aware of their cleansing wipes. With  me I am just purely lazy I just need any excuse to just get into bed without the effort of removing my make up . After one use of a wipe I was addicted they are so quick and effective when removing make up. The wipes are suitable for all skin types and as said by Nivea it cleanses, tones and hydrates, removes make up and mascara and is suitable for all skin types .This was essential for me as I have quite sensitive eyes .I usually tend to just use home branded wipes or anything cheap that I can get my hands on that isn't pricey and niveas wipes have totally satisfied me
what I like about the wipes?
  • Easy and quick to remove make up
  • They only cost around £3 for 25 wipes (totally worth the price)
  • They cleanse and refresh your skin ( great for an early start in the morning)
At the end of a long day they give you no hassle and no problems .If your like me trying to find a quick way to remove make up and very lazy try them out for yourself. You can find out more information on Nivea's website http://www.nivea.co.uk/products/face-care/product-type/Cleansing-Wipes.



Nivea Sensitive Cleansing milk

I am totally loving the Nivea sensitive cleansing milk. It does an amazing job at removing all my non waterproof make up .As I have sensitive eyes I feel like it has a gentle approach and is kindly satisfying. Just like the wipes I wasn't really aware of the cleansing milk. It has a normal Nivea product smell which is ok as sometimes the smell of a product can change the way you feel about it. Most cleansing milks can cause stinginess around the eyes which can be quite annoying when you are after a fast way of removing make up but I felt no stinginess around the eyes. Despite removing my make up it gave made my skin soft and kept it quite hydrated.
What I like about the cleansing milk ?
  • Subtle Nivea smell
  • Cleanses easily
  • Quickly effective
  • Hydrates and smoothens skin
  • Its affordable !
Nivea Soft Rose Lip Balm

The last product I will be reviewing is the Nivea soft rose lip balm. Firstly I quite like the packaging of the lip balm it is small cute and can easily fit in a pocket in my bag. The smell is quite subtle and sweet and is ideal for anyone I would say even those with a sensitive nose. It is quite smooth and flawy to apply to your lips and gives a light pink sheen .If you are someone like me who doesn't really suit a dark lip or it just going for a neutral lip look I would totally recommend it

What I like about the lip balm ?
  • Effective for chapped lips
  • Small cute packaging
  • Neutral smell
  • Subtle sheen
  • Amazing for lip balm lovers

Overall I was happy with all the Nivea products they are easily available suitable for all skin types from my point of view I think everyone should use them and they are totally worth the price however everyone is entitled to their own opinion . Try the products for yourself !
