Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Collection review

Hey guys! It’s nearly Christmas! Recently I’ve covered a great face and eyeshadow palette which is perfect for all your Christmas and New Years parties as well as a winter skin saviour, and today I’m here for those of you with weak, brittle and dry nails. If you need something to strengthen and brighten nails, moisturise nails or help your nails to grow stronger in general, then today’s post is for you. It’s also a fantastic Christmas gift idea for the beauty or nail addict in your life. 

Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Collection: Pink Gel Coat, Clear Gel Coat, Daily Moisture and My Favourite Top Coat
Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Collection: Pink Gel Coat, Clear Gel Coat, Daily Moisture and My Favourite Top Coat

The Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Collection is a set of four of Perfect Formula’s top nail care products. It contains the Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat, Clear Gel Coat, Daily Moisture and My Favourite Top Coat (that’s the name of the product and not me trying to be biased). 

All Perfect Formula products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates and TPHP.

The Pink Gel Coat and Clear Gel Coat are both keratin rich formulas that are designed to strengthen and protect the nails, but the Pink Gel Coat is tinted pink and helps to brighten the nails as well. It gives the look of a French manicure.

The Daily Moisture is a jojoba-rich nail and cuticle conditioner that helps to keep the nails and cuticles moisturised and protected as well as helping to strengthen nails over time. My Favourite Top Coat is a top coat for nail polish that dries quickly and promises to ensure a long-lasting and glossy manicure.

They come packaged in a pink and white box and each of the products come in small glass bottles that hold 5ml of product. These are miniature versions and not full-size products, so it’s more of a taster pack than a bundle pack. 

For this post, I have got my mum involved too as she’s a fan of nail strengthening treatments and she has tried a whole bunch of them, so I’ve sent her off to test the Clear Gel Coat whilst I’ve been trying out the Pink Gel Coat, Daily Moisture and My Favourite Top Coat

JAQUA Caramel Cappuccino Whipped Sugarcream Scrub review

Hey guys! Last week I focused on a product that is perfect for all your upcoming Christmas/New Year parties, but today I’m going to focus on something that helps to combat dry, winter skin which is something most of us need some help with in this cold weather!

JAQUA Caramel Cappuccino Whipped Sugarcream Scrub

The JAQUA Caramel Cappuccino Whipped Sugarcream Scrub is a 98% organic body exfoliator that sloughs off dry skin and highly moisturises at the same time. It is made up of organic coconut oil and organic, fine-grained cane sugar. It can be used in either the shower or bath, as a lip scrub (in very small amounts) or without water for intense hydration. 

The JAQUA Whipped Sugarcream Scrub comes in a range of fragrances to suit your mood, but the one that I have to discuss today is fragranced with Caramel Cappuccino.

It comes packaged in a white, plastic, screw-cap jar with a sticker wrapped around it containing product information. The sticker colour is different for each fragrance. It comes in two sizes, holding either 227g/8oz or 57g/2oz. 

The product itself changes in appearance depending on the storage conditions or even weather. Coconut oil hardens when it is cold and becomes liquid when it is hot.

theBalm have recently released two face palettes called theBalm Alternative Rock Vol.1 and Vol.2. They’re designed to be a rock style colour palette that features six eyeshadows, a bronzer/shadow, blush/shadow and highlighter/shadow. They’re all complimentary shades that can be mixed and matched to create either a daytime or nighttime look using just the one palette. 

I have theBalm Alternative Rock Vol.1 face palette to talk to you about today which features the pinkier, girlier shades in comparison to Alternative Rock Vol.2 which features more nude shades.

The palette comes packaged in a square, black palette that is designed to look like a record player. This then comes in a sleeve that is designed to look like an album cover. The palette is made of very sturdy card and has a mirror inside.

Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask review

Hey guys! Christmas is on the way, so that means that we’re going to be not only shopping and attending parties, but a lot of us will be doing a lot of travelling over the festive period. Travelling can be tiring, but sleeping on public transport can also be difficult. On top of that, we all know that enough rest helps our skin to look fresher and true beauty comes from within, so the better we feel, it’s going to show. So with this in mind, today we will be focusing on something slightly different here on the blog in the hopes of helping out with getting the best rest during the most chaotic time of the year.

The Bedtime Bliss Sleep Mask is a contoured eye mask for blocking out light so that you can rest peacefully. It is comfortable and lightweight and is made of bamboo and cotton. The patented, contoured design means that the mask fits well over the eyes and you can even open your eyes with the mask on without any issues.

The contoured design actually means that this mask is not going to smudge your makeup if you apply it with a full face of makeup on, meaning that it is the perfect option for anyone who wants to sleep during the daytime without bright lights glaring down on them without looking like a raccoon upon awakening.

Not only is this good for travelling, but if you have a partner who likes to keep the light on for reading or working late when you need to get some shut eye, or live in a busy neighbourhood where it may be difficult to block out the external lights from outside, then this is also for you.

The mask comes in a range of 4 colours and each mask comes with a complimentary pair of ear plugs and a travel case.
