The Body Shop – Ginger Sparkle Body Butter & Mango Lip Butter

The Body Shop – Ginger Sparkle Body Butter & Mango Lip Butter

In early January I went into The Body Shop store in York and they were having a post-Christmas sale whereby all of their yummy body butters had been reduced to £5 each and the lip butters had been reduced to £3 each. I purchased this mini-haul of butters as I just love their body butters and I was a bit low on lip balm and once I had sniffed this mango lip butter in the store I was smitten, I just love fruity scents. The Ginger Sparkle Body Butter was a limited edition Christmas fragrance, and I was excited to get my hands on this as I love the smell of ginger. I have found that the scent is quite citrussy and limey rather than gingery though, it should be called ‘Lime with a hint of Ginger’ – it’s still lovely but not as Christmassy and spicy as I had hoped. I had also assumed from its name that Ginger Sparkle Body Butter would have some sort of shimmer...

MUA Makeup Academy Haul

MUA Makeup Academy Haul

I was so impressed with the quality of Superdrug’s MUA Makeup Academy range that I placed a rather large online order, and it has just arrived! But I’m starting to think that I overdid it…. I did benefit from a 3 for 2 offer though, and the whole lot cost less than a Chanel eyeshadow palette… am I just trying to justify my purchase to myself?! You can read my previous reviews of MUA Lipstick in Shade 5 and MUA Blusher in Shade 1. From left to right, back to front… Lipsticks in Shade 9, Shade 4, Shade 6, Shade 14. Power Pout Lip Crayons in Rendezvous and Irreplaceable. Sheer Finish Lip Glosses in Too Much Fun, Let’s Meet and Some Me Time. I was hoping that MUA would eventually give their lipsticks proper names, to replace ‘Shade 1, Shade 2’ etc, and the nude Shade 14 lipstick also has the name ‘Bare’ on the label… are MUA finally giving their lipsticks names? From left to right… Gel Eyeliner in Tribe,...

Superdrug Haul

Superdrug Haul

Only a short post today before I put my tired feet up – I have had a day shopping in York and have picked up this very tasty haul from Superdrug! I’m so excited about trying out these new products… I have the new MUA Undress Me Too eyeshadow palette plus a £1 MUA lipstick and £1 MUA blusher, a trio of Barry M nail paints, a zesty green eyeshadow palette from Collection, and a Polka Dots nail varnish from Maybelline which I hadn’t seen before. I also picked up a pack of foam applicators – perfect for all that eyeshadow swatching I’m going to be doing over the coming days! Finally I couldn’t leave Superdrug without purchasing the new wonder product that is B Flawless Targeted Wrinkle Filler – it’s being hailed as almost as good as botox… I will let you know what I think. Superdrug have a ‘3 For 2’ offer on all cosmetics at the moment, so I even saved myself money (well, that’s what...
