Crabtree & Evelyn Goatmilk & Oat Bath Milk, Citron & Coriander Body Wash and Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy reviews

Hey guys! Just before the new year I wrote a post featuring Top Beauty Tips for 2018, and one of those tips was contributed by Jamie Rockers from Crabtree & Evelyn. So, when Crabtree & Evelyn recently sent out a press release discussing the New Year of You, it was naturally a great follow on from that post to feature a couple of the products that they had to showcase to help introduce you to some new, rejuvenating skincare products in 2018. Additionally, as we have just had Valentines Day, I also have a product to show you that is based on the world's most romantic flower, the rose.

The three products that I have to discuss with you all are the Goatmilk & Oat Bath Milk and Citron & Coriander Body Wash that were featured in the New Year New You statement and the Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy cream for Valentines Day.

As I did with my previous post featuring the PrimaLash lashes, I shall discuss each product in more detail in their own sections to avoid confusion.

PrimaLash Velvet, Express and Professional lash reviews

Hi guys! We all love to have beautiful lashes, and even though there are tons of great mascaras out there (this is my current top mascara), sometimes they just don't cut it. That's where false lashes come in, and recently I was sent three pairs of beautiful lashes to share with all of you. Hurrah!

If you're following me on Instagram, you may have already seen a sneaky peak at the three pairs of PrimaLash false lashes that I have been sent to review, one from the Professional range, one from the Express range and one from the Velvet range.  From the Professional range I have the style #DH, Express I have #Sweet and Velvet I have #Lemon Drop.

To avoid confusion, I will split the post into three sections and go into more details for each set.

Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm Hot Pink review

Hey guys! Have you ever put a product on your “to try” list and then just never get around to buying it or trying it out? Me too. Today’s post is going to be featuring a product that I’ve been desperate to try for so long but just never got around to doing so. Not anymore, though!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure that you’ve heard that Korean beauty products are pretty darn good. In fact, the whole idea of a BB Cream or CC Cream is Korean and it was adapted into the Western world. Therefore, trying a Korean BB Cream has to happen. Skin79 is a brand that I have actually tried products from before, but one of their BB Creams in particular has been drawing my attention for years: the Skin79 Super+ Beblesh Balm in Hot Pink

Having oily skin that is prone to break outs and also being a mum who is on the go from the second she wakes up to the second she gets to finally fall asleep every day, finding the time to do a full face that covers what I need it to cover and also stay put can be a challenge. A BB Cream adds a whole new layer of flexibility and time saving to any routine, boasting skincare and makeup benefits into one product. This particular product has a triple-function formula that promises to protect, smooth and brighten the skin. It absorbs excess oil, corrects uneven skintone, fights dullness and also contains UV protection SPF30 PA++.  On top of that, it boasts high coverage to leave the skin looking flawless. That’s a fair amount! I’m also pretty sure that you can see why I was so eager to try it out, too.

So when I was running low on foundation and started browsing around to decide which to try next, I remembered this and thought aha, now is finally the time to try this one out.

It comes packaged in a bright, shiny pink, opaque bottle with a pump lid. It has some pretty holographic elements on the logo too, and it holds 40ml of product. The cream itself is pretty thick, beige and it smells a lot like sunscreen.

Louise Galvin Sacred Locks Shampoo and Conditioner for Fine Hair reviews

Hi guys! If you are a regular reader of the blog then you may be aware that when it comes to haircare, there are certain ingredients that I avoid. Things like silicones and SLS can build up or be harsh on the hair, and even though some may be fine with them, others prefer to avoid them for better hair health. For those who prefer to avoid, there are thankfully products that are available that avoid all of the nasties, and today I will be looking at a couple.

Louise Galvin, British "haircare Queen", is passionate about creating carbon neutral beauty products that are great for your hair as well as the environment. She has released two different hair ranges, the more affordable Natural Locks range and the Sacred Locks range that includes shampoos, conditioners and hair masks. I was recently sent a couple of products from the Sacred Locks range as a gift from Louise Galvin, so I have decided to review them for you all today.

The products that I have to show you are the Sacred Locks Shampoo and Conditioner for Fine Hair. The shampoo is described as a clarifying shampoo that contains mild cleansing agents and citrus oils that keep the hair clean without any silicone build-up or greasiness. The conditioner is described as intensive but light on the hair, leaving it shiny, smooth, with added volume and with no fly-aways.

Both products come packaged in the typical white rectangular bottle as the rest of the Louise Galvin products do (but the Natural Locks range comes in black) with pumps at the top to dispense the product. Each bottle holds 300ml of product.

Hey Good Lookin Vanilla Body Scrub review

Hey all! I don't know about you guys, but I can't really function in the mornings without caffeine. I can't function during the day generally without multiple cups of tea. Did you know though that caffeine can really help the skin, too?

You may have heard of coffee scrubs before, but if not, then I'll explain the benefits as we discuss the product that I have to show you all today, the Hey Good Lookin Vanilla Body Scrub. The Vanilla Body Scrub is a coffee scrub that is made up of 100% Organic Robusta Coffee, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Vanilla Oil, Almond Oil, Himalayan Pink Blush Salt and Babassu Oil. It is suitable for use on both the body and the face.

We will kick start though with the obvious question; why coffee? Well, the main reason is the caffeine content. When applied to the skin, caffeine is a rich source of antioxidants. It can help to reduce the appearance of both stretch marks and cellulite, it can help to reduce dark circles around the eyes as well as reduce puffiness and it can help to fight fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of premature ageing. In addition to the caffeine, coffee, when mixed with a blend of other skin benefitting ingredients, can help to exfoliate the skin, leaving it soft and nourished.

Hey Good Lookin not only blend their coffee with a range of amazing ingredients that benefit the skin, but they also use Robusta Coffee which is double the caffeine strength of Arabica coffee. It is also 100% organic, meaning that there are no harsh chemicals used in their production and you get nothing but the good stuff for your skin.

Talking of the good stuff for your skin, just read some of the benefits of the ingredients in this scrub:

Shea Butter includes Vitamins A and F, working to help with skin conditions such as eczema, blemishes, dermatitis and wrinkles as well as protecting and rejuvenating dry, chapped skin respectively. Himalayan Pink Blush Salt helps to detoxify, soften and balance, making it great for oilier, blemish prone skin. Vitamin E, which is a skin hero that helps to reduce dark spots, fight the signs of ageing, cleanse and leave the skin looking radiant. Babassu Oil helps to fight acne, lock in moisture and heal damaged skin. Jojoba helps to protect skin and fight against breakouts as well as moisturise and regenerate the skin. Vanilla Extract Oil helps to fight the signs of ageing and protect from environmental skin damage. Sweet Almond Oil also helps to cleanse and is another source of Vitamin A.

It is just full of goodness.

All of this goodness is packaged in a white, re-sealable, recyclable pouch.

So let's see how well it works.
