Beauty Review: Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush

A few weeks back I reviewed the Sensse Hot and Cool Facial Bar, and absolutely loved it. This past week I have been trying out the Sensse silicone facial cleansing brush. After quite a few sleepless nights with baby girl teething and her nightmares my skin has suffered. It feels dull and lifeless, tired and spotty.

Oyster Skincare Brightening Eye Serum Review and Giveaway

I’m not a huge makeup girl as you can probably tell, but I do have the odd face and tubs of skin cream around. I may forget to use it most days but I try! When I was asked to try out this Oyster Skincare Brightening Eye Serum I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give it a go. Maybe it will help to remove the bags from around my tired eyes. It might even give me one of those fresh face looks!

With work. moving house, baby girl and other things going on at the moment my poor eyes need some attention. Tired is an understatement!

Lee Stafford Lighten Up Mirror Review & Giveaway

I have always been a fan of Lee Stafford products, so when I was asked to review the Lighten Up Mirror, I was very excited! Not only is it in one of my favourite colours, but it’s a very useful product that will stand out on my bathroom shelf. I will keep it in here for use in the very early mornings (I’m talking before 5am!). It’s very lightweight so great to transport to your dressing table if needed.

Lee Stafford Lighten Up Mirror

The Lighten Up Mirror arrived very well packaged in polystyrene inside the cardboard box. This is needed due to the breakable nature of the mirror. We don’t want 7 years bad luck do we?

What is the purpose of the Lighten Up Mirror?

So the purpose of the mirror is to complete your dressing area in style with the pink chrome mirror – I love this!

It has a soft warm illumination perfect for your beauty regime – Totally needed to cover up my bags under my eyes from the lack of sleep!

Double sided with a 360 degrees rotating angle to make sure you look glamorous from every angle – aww thanks, just what I need!

1x and 3x magnification for those close up moments when a steady hand is needed.

Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Women’s

Viola Collar from The Shirt Company

For the fashion concious lady we have these fabulous collars from The Shirt Company. I think they are fun and great for dressing up a going out or the smart business outfit. This is the Viola.

 

Peony in Black - The Shirt Company

 

 

This collar is not quite as formal as the Viola. It’s known as the Peony. Very pretty in black. The Shirt Company really has lots of pretty shirts and tops available on their online shop.

Why not take a look and treat someone this Christmas?

 

 

Passionfruit and Lemon Curd from Scarlett & Mustard

I love all types of curds. On toast, great for using in cakes oh and my favourite – on scones with Cornish clotted cream. Yum! This passionfruit and lemon curd is amazing from Scarlett & Mustard. Fresh and zingy. A great little gift. Why not add their blackcurrent & Star Anise, Lime & Mint and Toffee Apple curds to a little gift basket?

£3.50
The Book Of Everyone

 

A couple of weeks back I reviewed The Book of Everyone. These books really do make great personalised gifts. This one is for my husband for Christmas, but I’ve gone and ordered one for my sister as well.

I love the way they take you on a journey back in time. You can learn about the day you were born, What was the number one single, amongst other facts.

A great gift for that person you never know what to buy for them.

Chambers & Co Skin Care Review

A few weeks back I was asked if I would like to review some products from Chambers & CoI had a little browse over their website and discovered that they produce quite a few different products across their range.

I chose to review 3 products from the skin care range. They also have a leather and pet care range.

Chambers & Co the business started in 2015 by an ordinary family who discovered that their toddler had tolerances to a number of food groups and additives when he was small in 2005. This gave them an interest in everyday products like skin care and cleaning. So over the years in between they researched and learned that by using fresh, natural ingredients and by formulating they came up with the products they sell today.
