Moschino Fresh Couture

On my flight back from Barcelona the evil airport tricked me in to buying thing again! Doesn’t it understand that I am broke? How dare it… Anyway I can clean away the badness of this with Moschino Fresh Couture! My latest perfume purchase is disguised as a bottle of window cleaner. I can hide this away so no one will know I went shopping.

Like the name says, this is a very fresh smelling perfume with a slight fruitiness to it. It’s a really light perfume, its an amazing day time wear. Its not too heavy or strong, its subtle but lasts all day for work.

Although the whole appearance of the bottle is very much a gimmick, it’s a very cute and quirky bottle. However I did find a few things Moschino could have improved on, take notes Moschino. While looking like it has a squeeze-y spritz-y thing like cleaning products have, you need to turn the squeezer until it comes off to reveal a normal press down sprizter. That was phrased in a very Billie way, so if you don’t quite understand what I mean is that its a shame it doesnt spray from the top of the bottle.  It would have been 300 times cooler you didn’t have to take off the top to spray it.

Also the price, its like £50 for 50mls, I got it in duty free so it was a little cheaper for me, I kind of feel like its a lot to pay for a gimmick. While I have my qualms about this product, I do really enjoy how it looks and I think the fragrance is perfect for my day to day life, I shouldn’t complain really.

Summer Must Haves From Lush

Last week we had sun in the UK.  We had sun, it was freaking hot. I loved it. I’m going to be showing you my favourite Lush products for the summer. I’m completely leaving out sun creams and SPF’s from this post for a couple of reasons.

1, I’m pretty much dead, I’m so pale and I don’t tan or burn.
2, I don’t much about SPF’s and I don’t want to recommend a product that I don’t fully understand.

Let’s get on with the products now I’ve got that cleared up. We’re going to go through the products in the order I would use these as well, this is so organised for me.

Yuzu and Cocoa
This shower cream smells like chocolate orange, its refreshing and it really lifts my mood.

Life’s a Beach
I like to mix a little bit of this in with Yuzu and Cocoa to exfoliate so my skin is extra smooth and soft. My biggest concern when I bought this is would it block the drain, but since using this I’ve found that because it is all natural products that it is fine, for the drains and environment. Thought I’d throw in some shade here at microbeads.

Karma Kream
Lets get real here, I hate the smell of this, I don’t know what it is. Its really heavy and strong and not summery. The reason I recommend this product for the summer is how amazing for the skin all of the ingredients are. I suffer with eczema and dry skin, its worse in the summer than any other time of the year and this product is so moisturising I couldn’t not include it. Karma Kream is my go to summer moisturiser, I use it at night before I go to bed. Its cooling for these warm nights then it works its wonders while I sleep. By morning my skin is soft and the smell has faded.

Breath of Fresh Air 
Toner is a must all year round. Breath of Fresh Air is fantastic for the summer because a quick spritz removes swear and dirt from your skin while its cooling. Its so refreshing on a warm day. I use this in the morning and before I go to sleep to clean my pores.

Aaaaaaaand thats it for my favourite summer products from Lush. What are your summer must haves?

Dear John Review

When body spray, Dear John, meets an idealistic blogger, it’s the beginning of a strong love. Over the next seven tumultuous weeks and separated by Billies increasingly busy lifestyle, they stay in touch only a couple of times a day with quick spritz. However their correspondence triggers unforeseen consequences.  I hope I can’t get done for plagiarism with this, Melania Trump, please don’t steal the summary of the film Dear John in your next speech.

For £15 you too could own this amazing unisex body spray and live out a similar story like the one above. This is your typical Lush product, its a little different and its amazing. In the typical body spray bottle, this perfume is anything but typical.  This is a really earthy scent, its a little smokey and a little fruity. Its a fantastic mix. It’s also vegan and you can get this product in a naked solid form which is actually better for the environment.

What is your favourite perfume?

Kiehl’s Haul

My gorgeous friends a Kiehl’s meadowhall are my absolute favourite people, they provided goodies for my event, they keep letting me stop by for facials and sharing their amazing products with me. The Sheffield blogger girls and myself are working with thoroughly to share some of these opportunities with the local blogger community.

However this is all for the future and completely irrelevant to this post, soooooooo lets move on to my haul. Honestly there’s so much to share I don’t know where to start.

Lets start with samples!
samples

Above there is samples of there light weight creams, skin perfectors with SPF and their BB creams. Out of the products I’ve used the BB creams more than anything, when ever I’m in store or just had a facial with them I insist to use their BB cream before I leave. Its lightweight and subtle. If you have a very pink face like myself but don’t want heavy foundation, get this.

Day and night oil

Daily Reviving Concentrate and the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
The Day and Night oils are two of Kiehl’s signature products, these both are really lightweight and don’t sit on your skins like most oils, they just sink straight in and get working.

Rose Artica

 

Rosa Arctica
I’ve not tried this product yet, this is in the large sample size. I’m really excited to try this out.

Line-reducing concentrate

Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate 
This light weight anti-aging cream is used for reducing wrinkles and pores. I look like a 12 year old so I’ve not really tried this yet, but I’m going to see if my mum could review it for me.

Ultimate Strength Hand Salve
I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooove hand creams, I must have at least 10 different brands and creams upstairs. I’m excited to try this out.

IMG_1506

Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion  
See.

cleanser

Orange Flower and Lychee Body Cleanser 
So excited to try this, I adore the the Orange Flower and Lychee Perfume they do, so no doubt I will love this.

Masque

Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque 
This is so brightening, I tried it in store and my skin had this glow that it never has. It is very pricey compared to other face masks, normally Lush are my go to for face masks, but I fell in love with this the moment I tried it.

Thank you again Kiehl’s for how amazing you are. I’m so excited to review these and keep hoarding products.

Have you tried Kiehl’s? Whats your favourite product by them?

Nina L’Eau Nina Ricci perfume

Throwback to Amsterdam really quick, when I was in the airport for my return flight I were determined to buy a perfume. I must have spent 20 minutes smelling everything in the store until I found the one. I bought the Nina L’Eau  by Nina Ricci perfume, which I have decided to make my smell of summer.

486

While costing £37 for a 50 ml bottle, a little will go a long way. This scent to Nina is very long lasting and sweet. It’s a very soft sweet smell though, some sweet perfumes make me sneeze, but this is perfectly balanced. If I was a more poetic writer I would say its light, sweet and romantic. When I say long lasting, I mean long lasting, I spritz a little on in the morning and I still catch a whiff of it in the evening.

488

The packaging is truly adorable. The bottle is a cute little apple, that is slightly tinted pink. The detailing is subtle and gorgeous. Nina is by far the prettiest perfume I have ever owned.

490

I am massively obsessed with the perfume, I am proud to say this will be the scent of my summer maybe even of the year. I have been completely blown away by this product, I will be definitely re-buying this when it runs out.

What perfume are you wearing/loving right now? Would you like more posts like this?

Superdrup Haul

I was on a spending ban for what feels like 100 years, I was finally allowed/sneakily decided to go on a shopping spree. I felt like my make up hoard was starting to look empty so on Sunday, the day after the #steelcityblogmeet I popped by to a favourite store of mine. Superdrug, I was welcomed back so quickly. Any way you might not want to hear that I was in the store nearly 45 minutes and somehow became friends with someone that worked there. You want to know what I bought!

Face Masks. FACE MASKS. I love face masks.

Not Another Lush Haul

I did something bad. I went in to lush. I was not responsible. I am not sorry in the slightest.

Here is visual evidence, photos of my two bags of lush.

037
Lets delve in to the cutely wrapped bags to see what treasures I hoarded. I really don’t know why I keep writing like I am a pirate. I’ll try to stop now, its weird.

Lets nosey into the tubs and bottle, first.

Soooooo, I got Don’t Rain On  My Parade Shower Gel, BB Seaweed and Salted Coconut.
PicMonkey Collage

So I didn’t know “Don’t Rain On My Parade” existed, it is named after my favourite Barbara Streisand song. I needed it, like I don’t even care. I have quite a crazy hand washing routine, and “Salted Coconut” is something that will always return and y’all should try it!

BATH BOMBS BATH BOMBS LADY BIRD BATH BOMBS

From left to right I got Humpty Dumpty, Golden Egg, Lady Bird Bubble Bar and Fluffy Egg. I have not used any of these yet so I don’t have any opinions.

Soaps and not Soaps.

Soaps and shiz.jpg

Somewhere Over the rainbow, Pumice Power, Sugar Scrub and Honey I Washed The Kids. Again, I’ve not used any of those either.

I cant wait to use these and possible review them. Is there anything you would like me to review? Are there any products I need to buy?

See you next time
