GIVEAWAY – Pink&Green Organic Facial Cleansing Oil

GIVEAWAY – Pink&Green Organic Facial Cleansing Oil

THE GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED. A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the October Blogger Beauty Box and included inside it was a small bottle of Pink&Green Organic Facial Cleansing Oil. It was my favourite item from the box, and following my review Carol Aplin, founder of Pink&Green, got in touch to thank me and to offer a full size 10ml bottle of Organic Facial Cleansing Oil and muslin cloth as a giveaway for one of my readers. This is a fab skincare product that won the ‘Best Facial Cleanser’ prize in the Janey Loves Platinum Awards 2015 competition for natural and organic skincare products. It’s 100% organic made from peach kernel, sweet orange, and lavender essential oils and it smells gently floral. Whilst a 10ml bottle might not sound very much you actually only need around 3 drops to cleanse the whole face, so if you cleanse twice a day, morning and night, it should last for 6 weeks. After applying the 3 drops to the fingertips the...

Max Factor – Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara Review

Max Factor – Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara Review

I was so excited when I saw that Max Factor was bringing out Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara! Imagine…. a waterproof mascara that lasts for 3 days… so I registered on the waiting list for 2 packs and they arrived last week. I have been a fan of Max Factor mascaras for a long time, I used Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara for a long time and my current favourite is Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, so I couldn’t wait to try out this new product! Max Factor describe the product, ‘Max Factor Lashfinity 3 Day Mascara is Life Proof; Lasting Multiple days enabling you to live your life through sleeping, showering and rubbing. A brand new technological advancement that brings long wear lashes to cosmetics.’ They then goes on to explain, ‘Although the mascara will stay on your lashes over a 3 day period, during wear, especially sleeping and showering, you may experience some smudging under the eyes. This can be easily removed by dipping a cotton bud in the built in...

Free Batiste Dry Shampoo!

Free Batiste Dry Shampoo!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years you can’t fail to have noticed the revival that Batiste Dry Shampoo is having. Now a staple on every girl’s (and some guys’) dressing table this lifesaver product means you can revive and refresh hair without having to wash it. Batiste Dry Shampoo works by absorbing the oil on the surface of the hair, just spray into dry hair and then style as normal – make sure you don’t apply too much though as it can leave hair looking a bit ‘talcy’. The only downside is that the spray is rather violent and loud (and scares my cats!), I would prefer a more gentle spray like you get from a hairspray can. There are loads of fragrances and colours to choose from, but I like the original as I love its retro turquoise and yellow spiral can and classic logo. I sometimes use it to texturise my hair too if I want to do an up-do, I find that...
