Get ‘Beach Body Ready’ with Temple Spa

Get ‘Beach Body Ready’ with Temple Spa

There’s been uproar in the press and on social media recently about the phrase ‘beach body ready’ and the pressure put on women to lose weight, tone up, and look good in a bikini. Everyone should be allowed to feel comfortable in swimwear no matter what their size or shape and there should be no pressure on women to conform to a certain body shape. Having said that, no one wants to step out onto the beach looking un-groomed and there are lots of bodycare tips and tricks that anyone can do to give them that little extra piece of confidence when stepping out in a bikini or swimming costume for the first time. I’ve been trying out a selection of bodycare products from Temple Spa that are perfect for Summer bodies and promise to make everyone look great on the beach (or just in your back garden!). Sugar Buff – the first product in my ‘get beach body ready’ regime is Sugar Buff, a Mediterranean body scrub that includes...

Elite Serum for eyes – 50% OFF!

Elite Serum for eyes – 50% OFF!

You may remember my review from September of Elite Serum for eyes, and the great results I experienced from it. Well the lovely people at Elite Serum are offering my readers an exclusive 50% OFF Elite Serum this weekend only – 1st & 2nd November 2014! Find out why I love Elite Serum… Elite Serum is an eye serum which aims to increase elasticity on the eyelids and below the eye within days, reduces dark circles, performs a lightening around the eyes and minimises puffiness within a few weeks plus it continues to reduce fine lines after that for up to 6 months. Elite Serum is stored in a precision airless syringe which is really easy to use. Just remove the plastic cap and rubber tip, then unlock the syringe by twisting the end and press to dispense a dose enough for both eyes. I actually prefer using a serum to a cream, I sometimes feel that eye creams are quite heavy and make my eyes feel rather itchy...

Cocoa Brown – Lovely Legs Spray & Tough Stuff

Cocoa Brown – Lovely Legs Spray & Tough Stuff

I was recently sent these Cocoa Brown by Marissa Carter tanning goodies to try out – the package included Lovely Legs Spray*, a sachet of Tough Stuff* scrub and a Self Tan Applicator Mitt*. Lovely Legs Spray is an instant wash-off tan, and I have to admit I’ve always been nervous about using wash-off tan products – I always have nightmares about getting stuck in a rain shower and ending up with tan streaked legs! However, this product is labelled as water-resistant so I was interested to see how well it held up. Lovely Legs Spray – as I’ve already mentioned Lovely Legs Spray is a spray-on instant wash-off tan ‘make-up’. It is marketed as being perfect for legs but I guess it could be used on any area of your body – I have also been using it on my arms – but just be careful to avoid any area that could be rubbed by clothing as it could come off. The best way to use it is...

Avojo – The Black Peel Off Mask

Avojo – The Black Peel Off Mask

I was recently invited to try out and review The Black Peel Off Mask* from Danish skincare brand Avojo. This mask has been developed to help reduce the production of excess oil and dead skin cells, in order to prevent blackheads and breakouts and keep the skin looking clear. The Black Peel Off Mask is a unisex product for use on the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin) but should be kept well away from the eye area. The mask dries and after 25-30 minutes it can then be peeled off. Avojo recommend using the mask 1-2 times a week, and there is plenty of product in one sachet. I tried out The Black Peel Off Mask yesterday morning. The first thing that I noticed was the strong alcoholic smell as I was applying the mask, it really made my eyes water – I think the alcohol evaporating is what makes the mask dry out so quickly. After leaving the mask to do its thing for 30 minutes I removed...

StyleLux – Blackhead Killer

StyleLux – Blackhead Killer

When StyleLux asked me to try out their new Blackhead Killer* mask I was quite intrigued as I wasn’t sure what to expect. I received 5 sachets and was eager to try the product out, although it didn’t really say on the sachet what the product was for or results to expect so I had to visit their website to find out this information. I found out from the StyleLux website that the Blackhead Killer is a peel-off mask that removes pimples, blackheads, impurities, and excess oil in minutes. As you can see from the image above the sachet was rather brief in its application directions too, it just said to allow to dry for 10 minutes and then peel off. The mask itself is a thick, dark brown tar-like cream, and it didn’t feel very luxurious applying it to the face. I would suggest that if you do use this product you make sure you don’t answer the door when you are wearing it as a dark brown...

Soap & Glory – Peaches and Clean 3-in-1 Wash-Off Deep Purifying Cleanser

Soap & Glory – Peaches and Clean 3-in-1 Wash-Off Deep Purifying Cleanser

Some eagle-eyed readers may have noticed that I already reviewed Peaches And Clean Cleanser a few months ago, but Soap & Glory have recently redeveloped their skincare range so I wanted to weigh up how the new version of Peaches And Clean performs against the old one. The old Peaches And Clean was one of my favourite cleansers (and could also double up as an exfoliating mask) so I was nervous to try out the new version and had my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t have changed too much. Soap & Glory have added OXYGINSENG Technology™ (their special oxygen boosting complex) to this product to re-energize and stimulate the skin, plus PEACH & GOJUICE™ Extracts (Peach Extract and Goji Berry extract) that are rich in Vitamin A, C and anti oxidants. They have also removed parabens from the cleanser which I think is a great move. The old product was described as a ‘4-in-1 Wash-Off Deep Cleansing Milk’ whereas the new one is a ‘3-in-1 Wash-Off Deep Purifying Cleanser’. The...
