Misfit Cosmetics Wake Up Wipes and Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder reviews

*
Hey guys! Today I’ve got a couple of very different types of products to share with you all from Misfit Cosmetics. The first being the Wake Up Wipes, a beauty product that are handy to take away for festivals or travel, or as a great refreshing beauty product for busy women on the go. The second is their Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder, designed to help to remove stubborn stains on teeth and to give you the feeling of an at home scale and polish.

Because the products are so different, I’ll split the post into two halves and go into more detail for each product in their own section. I'll start with the Wake Up Wipes and then we shall move on to the Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder.

Information on where to purchase the products is at the end of the post.

MONU Illuminating Primer review

Summer is here, and incase you haven’t heard, here in the UK at the moment we’re having a bit of a heatwave. It’s amazing, but in regards to makeup it can leave a few issues. A couple of those can be how can we stop makeup from melting off your face, or how to get a nice summer glow. Thankfully, the product I’m reviewing today is here to solve both of those problems.

The MONU Illuminating Primer promises to leave you with smooth, illuminated skin, minimised pores and blurred blemishes. It can be used alone or under makeup to extend the life of your makeup throughout the day. 

It contains Mica to create a natural looking glow, Blackcurrant Seed Oil which includes essential fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6 to maintain the the skin's barrier function and to regain moisture balance, Vitamin E to soothe and to fight free radicals, Zinc Oxide for sun protection (which is SPF15), Hyaluronic Acid for moisture, Cassia Alata Leaf extract for anti-ageing and on the flip side, it is free of parabens.

It comes in a white and grey pump lid bottle that holds 50ml of product, and also a travel size squeeze tube that holds 30ml (which I picked in a previous Latest in Beauty box). The product itself is a thick, almost mousse-like white cream.

Best Beauty Boxes UK

Beauty boxes. What’s not to love?! You get to try new and amazing beauty products tailored to you from the comfort of your own home, and sometimes you get full-size products as well, saving you tons of money.

Beauty box goodies (psst... if you'd like to see more pictures like this, be sure to follow my Instagram)

The issue nowadays though is that there are so many around, and that can make it difficult to choose the perfect one for you. Some people want to choose just one box, some don’t mind subscribing to a bunch. All of us though want to get the most for our money. Today I wanted to help those of you who are on the hunt for your new favourite beauty box by talking about a few of my personal favourites. 

I’ve decided to compile a list of the beauty boxes that I am currently subscribed to, enjoy and therefore recommend to others. There are still beauty boxes out there that I am yet to try and there are new ones appearing all the time, so if you know of one that I’ve not mentioned that you think are worth a recommendation too, please do leave a comment at the end and let everyone know!

For each box, I’ve written the pros and cons so that you can use that to work out which would be the best box for you, and I’ll be showing examples of what products I’ve received from each as well.

All photos featured in this post are from my Instagram feed, so if you like what you see, please do come over and give me a follow for more!

PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick review

Who is loving the beautiful weather? Who isn’t loving the smell of body odour that comes with sweating in the hot weather? Well, if you are one of those who hate body odour but prefer using natural products, then this post is for you.

The PitRok Crystal Original Natural Deodorant Stick is a natural, crystal deodorant that is fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.  It works by applying a thin layer of mineral salt which is a bacteriostatic agent that prevents odour causing bacteria from growing, and it does not block pores. It is suitable for sensitive skin, is free of Aluminium Zirconium and Aluminium Chlorohydrate, propylene glycol, SLS/SLES, parabens, fragrance and silicones.

When a product has as many 5-star reviews as this one does, it’s worth paying attention to it and checking it out. It definitely captured my attention and I wanted to share my thoughts on it with all of your beautiful faces!

It comes packaged in a shiny, black plastic tube with the PitRok logo in white and gold in the front. It has a screw cap lid and the product itself is a hard, translucent crystal that can be pushed up from the bottom. It hold 100g of product.

E45 Daily Lotion Spray review

Hey guys! Do you ever get dry, itchy skin? Flaky skin? Eczema prone? Looking for a product to get rid of your eczema or dry areas but prefer to put minimal effort into your skincare routine? No fear! This post is for you.

Of course, it’s not just for those with drier skin. Even if you just want a low maintenance body care product to incorporate into your routine, this post is also for you.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the brand E45, especially if you do have dry skin. They’re a great brand for eczema sufferers, and recently they released a new body moisturiser in the form of a spray: the E45 Daily Lotion Spray. This product also comes in an intensive version, but today I shall just be reviewing the Daily Lotion Spray.

E45 explain that this is their trusted formula, but in a fast-absorbing spray for quick application. It contains no added colours or fragrances, is suitable for dry and sensitive skin and is dermatologically tested. It promises 24 hour moisture with a non-greasy formula.

So what’s the difference? What is it for? Well, instead of having to either pump or squeeze lotion from a bottle, with this you simply get to spray it onto the skin, massage in and go. It’s so minimum fuss and effort and really helps to attract those who just either don’t have time or don’t have the effort to give their body care routine any thought. 

Of course that’s not the only reason you may want to try a spray version. I bought this for my daughter to try as well as myself as my little girl gets terrible eczema that really flares up in the warmer weather. Sometimes she doesn’t like having a regular cream applied either, and she will pull her legs away or run away and so on, so something a bit different to get her to cooperate is sometimes a plus.

It comes packaged in a white spray can in the same style and design as other E45 products, except it looks more like a deodorant than a moisturiser, so make sure that you remember which is which!
