Sleek – Candy Tint Lip Balms

Sleek – Candy Tint Lip Balms

Sleek Makeup is is one of my favourite high street brands and I was so pleased when they asked me if I’d like to try out their new Candy Tint Lip Balms. Formulated with Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E to provide long lasting hydration these tinted lip balms are a cross between a lipstick and a lip treatment balm. The ingredients also include vitamins A and C which help to protect the delicate lips from free radicals and SPF 15 to help shield the lips from the sun in all weathers. Available in six candy shades, I’ve been trying out Sherbet, Cherry Drop and Tutti Fruity: Sherbet is a nude peach shade and probably the colour that I was initially most drawn to. I like neutral lips and this gives your pout a natural hint of colour with a good gloss. Perfect for those ‘no make-up’ make-up looks. I was a bit scared of raspberry red Cherry Drop when I first laid eyes on it, I usually steer clear of red...

Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

Perfume Of The Day – L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge

I got this L’Occitane Cerisier Rouge Eau Intense for Christmas and I’m so in love with it! I first spritzed it in their York shop in December, and then dropped enough hints to my husband that he bought me it. Cerisier Rouge translates as ‘Red Cherry’ and it’s a beautiful sweet fragrance – as well as the scent of cherry it’s got hints of lemon, orange, blackcurrant, raspberry and Lily Of The Valley. It’s not too fruity though, the floral edge really does come through, and it is supposed to replicate the ‘changing beauty of cherry blossom announcing the arrival of Summer days’. It’s my absolute favourite scent at the moment, I wear it every day. It’s so uplifting and fresh – probably more of a Spring/Summer scent than an Autumn/Winter one. It lasts all day, after a few hours the top notes start to disappear and it reduces down to a warming, fruity fragrance. I was also lucky enough to receive a great free gift with my perfume. L’Occitane...

Batiste – Dry Shampoo in Cherry

Batiste – Dry Shampoo in Cherry

I’m a massive fan of the lifesaver product that is Batiste Dry Shampoo. I have already reviewed the ‘Clean and Classic Original’ variety and the Light & Blonde variant. Today I am reviewing the fruity and cheeky Cherry fragranced version. Batiste Dry Shampoo works by absorbing the oil on the surface of the hair, you just spray it sparingly over dry hair and then style as normal – only make sure you don’t apply too much as it can leave hair looking a bit ‘talcy’. The Cherry is the same as the original one except that it has the lovely fragrance of cherries – the fragrance is fairly strong when you first spray it, but it fades quickly leaving a gentle sweet scent in your hair. The only downside with Batiste Dry Shampoo 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. I love the retro design on the can and the logo. Batiste Dry...

Figs & Rouge – Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm

Figs & Rouge – Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm

This Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm from Figs & Rouge was in my June Glossybox, and I was very excited to try it out. Figs & Rouge is a new UK beauty brand that uses 100% natural ingredients in its products, containing naturally occuring fatty acids and no petroleum or other nasties. I really like the retro packaging of Figs & Rouge products, the floral tube is really pretty and is crying out to be shown off! The logo printed on the tube was a bit blurred – I’m not sure if this is a design feature or if there had been a problem when printing on the tubes – but overall I really love the packaging and I won’t hesitate to bring this out of my handbag to show it off. I have never used a lip balm in a tube before, the ones I have used have been a lipstick-style bullet or in a little tin, so this was a new experience for me. The Cherry Blossom...
