Palmolive Naturals

Hey dolls,

Recently I've been loving the Palmolive Naturals range of shower gels. They're affordable, available in most supermarkets and smell devine. Each shower milk is jam packed with 100% natural origin ingredients which help to hydrate skin and the velvety formula leaves skin so soft.

My two favourite shower gels are the coconut and almond scented ones, pictured below:

Have you tried the Naturals range, if so which is your favourite?

St Moriz Lotion: Review

Hey dolls,

Recently the lovely Aimee from Peppermint PR contacted me and asked if I would like to trial the fabulous long-awaited St Moriz lotion. Overjoyed I jumped at the chance and was thrown in a mitt and gorgeous light bronzer too.

St Moriz is the infamous drug store tanning brand available at Home Bargains, Quality Save, B&M Bargains, selected pharmacists and online retailers. RRP varies but is usually between £2.99-£5.00.

Introduced to the beauty world a couple of years ago by the lovely Laura anyone and everyone has raved about how good this product is. In it's original mousse and airbrush form you can choose from 'normal' or 'dark' for a deeper longer lasting tan.

As a tanning novice, mousse and airbrushing is something I struggle tremendously with but the lotion is super easy to use, it blends easily and dries a lot quicker than the mousse. I also found that it didn't stain my clothing whereas in the past the Moriz mousse has turned my bedsheets orange.

The lotion itself is fresh scented and doesn't leave a biscuit aroma - thankfully. It's a tinted lotion which is great because you can see exactly where you have applied it. I pumped out the lotion into the mitt and used circular motions blending well.

The bottle is 200ml and I just love the packaging, it's slimline and so elegant on my dressing table.

For hands and feet I applied a small pea sized amount and blended, using a scissor motion between fingers to ensure no dreaded white bits the next day.

The bronzer is just gorgeous it just adds a subtle shimmery glow when applied to the apples of cheeks and really enhances your tan.

And voila... what do we have? The perfect holiday tan without the worry of UV rays!!

Hey loves,

Recently I decided I wanted to try out Contact Lenses for the first time, so after having tried them at my local opticians (with great difficulty) I scoured the internet looking for a cheaper deal.

Lo and behold I stumbled across Contact Lenses - a UK based firm which offers a vast array of different lenses from dailies to monthlies and 2 weekly lenses which is what I opted for.

There is the opportunity to make a single purhcase or multi-buy which is great if you want to buy in bulk and get a discount. Your lenses are tailored to your prescription and are a cut of the price you'll pay at your opticians.

I bought 3 months supply of 2 weekly lenses plus 1 months supply of cleaning solution for just £41.00 including free delivery - that's saving approximately £37 each quarter!!

From ordering to delivery I was kept informed every step of the way and am truly impressed with the service received, my order was well packaged and delivered the next working day... Now if I can just grasp putting the lenses welcome dolls!

Have a fabulous weekend
