Miners – Moisture Effect Lipstick in Kiss Me Quick

Miners – Moisture Effect Lipstick in Kiss Me Quick

When I think of the brand Miners it reminds me of the very first eyeshadow palette I had as a little girl (a cast-off from my Mum!), it was a pale blue duo and I used it when I was dressing up.

But it could also be used on the rest of the body – a quick spray on the chest and wrists really helps to cool me down. Plus, if you keep it in the fridge it has even more cooling power. The ingredients of this Facial Spritz include mint, rose, lavender and witch hazel, all intended to help your skin feel fresh and cool. It has a gentle scent a bit like the smell of baby wipes – I’m not too keen on the scent myself, but it’s not really unpleasant. I do love the idea of...
