Models Own Strawberry Tart Scented Nail Paint Review

I haven't done much research into Model Own product's and have only ever really glanced at the products when I've seen them in Boots.



The paint smell it quite strong at first and then after about 15 minutes the smell of Strawberry Tart come's through, it also goes on patchy so you do need 2 coat's, it is a lovely spring colour though.  I found it took a while to dry as well so I was sat with wet nail's for a good 5 minutes which was annoying .


I wasn't blown away by the quality of the Models Own nail paints and for £5 I'm really not sure they are worth the price tag, I'm not sure if anyone else has had the same problems as me but I won't be repurchasing any time soon.



Do you own any nail paint's from Models Own? Let me know if you like them or not!

SS13 Pamper Morning

It's always important to have a little me time and so I thought I was very much due a pamper morning, Here's a list of thing's I have used this morning :

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Paint in shade Pomegranate - £3.99 
The Body Shop Chocomania Shower Cream - £4.00
Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Soothing Gel Cream - £4.99
London Fruit and Herb Company Strawberry and Vanilla Fool Tea - £1.45
Lush The Brightside Bubble Bar - £4.25
Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask - £5.95

The first thing I did was run my bath and added the Easter special Lush The Brightside bubble bar, the smell is amazing, my mum said when I picked it up that is was almost edible which I 100% agree. It smells like oranges which is one of my favorite scents. Once you run it under you're running water the water turn's orange and feels lovely against your skin.



I then washed my body using The Body Shop's Chocomania Shower cream, it was first brought for my mum as a Christmas gift but somehow didn't make it to her! It has a lovely rich chocolate smell to it and leaves my skin feeling really nourished. After washing my body I just had a nice relaxing 30 minute soak and then got out to start on some more pampering essentials.

I used Garnier Body Soothing Gel Cream which is advertise fast absorbing and has a lovely peach scent, I think this product is great although I would say it doesn't absorb as quick as I would like, However I still think it a great product to use after the bath.

I then used my Lush Cosemetic Warrior Face mask which is an amazing must have product if you have spot prone skin! While I wait 10 minute's for it to work it's magic I like to have a cup of Strawberry and Vanilla Fool tea which has a lovely taste and is really relaxing, for the price you get 20 tea bags which is just right for me to last a week. Although I can only seem to find this product in Holland and Barrett it would be lovely to see it on more shelves!



After all that pampering the last thing for me to do is my nails, I have used Barry M Hi Shine Gelly Paint today and am still loving this product hopefully I shall be getting some more shade's soon, I still haven't found a decent base/top coat so that shall be on my shopping list for tomorrow.



So do any of you have any blog post's about your pamper day/evenings? Let me know by leaving the link below, I would love to have a look!

Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask Review

For a 21 year old I think I must have a typical 16 year old face! I get awful breakout's and get some nasty red blemish's. So I have gone on the hunt recently for a good face mask to use in the evening once or twice a week.

The best one so far out of all the one's I've tired has to be Lush's Cosmetic Warrior which is priced at £5.95, as it's made with all fresh ingredient's it only last's a month. The main ingredient's are Kaolin, Fresh Grapes, Garlic, Egg's, Honey, Cornstarch and Tea Tree Oil, As it is a fresh mask you must store it in the fridge.

The smell is quite strong as it's smell really fresh and almost like as outdoor smell, when I put it on my face it does smell really strong but once I wash it off it doesn't linger which is great, I have to apply the mask quite thick but when putting it on my face it feel's so cooling and I can feel it attacking my spot's straight away!


I found using it for around two weeks cleared my skin nicely and it started to work on leaving my red blemishes faded, this is a great product for anyone with spot prone skin.


So do you have any great face mask's I can try? Please leave some suggestion's below!

Lush Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb

This bath bomb is one of my favorites, I bought it because it looked really cute and was quite cheap at £2.85 also the sale's assistant explained it was a really sweet smell, so I was extremely happy when I finally was able to use it!



The smell was gorgeous, it was really fruity and sweet it smelt almost like a cotton candy. The water went bright pink almost straight away which is always a plus for me ,But I must say this is defiantly a must buy and will be appearing on my favorite list.




I can't wait to go back to Lush and see what other Fluffy Egg's they have!


What are your favorite bath product's? Let me know!

Lush Secret Garden Bath Bomb Review

One of the main reason's I go to Lush is for there Bath Bomb's, I adore them! I have a little list of favorite's and always try to pick up one of two new one's when I go shopping. Today I tried Secret Garden for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.



When you pop it in the bath is take's a while to start to fizz but once it does the colour's come out lovely and blend really well, Once you're in the bath you will notice the really nice sweet smell with smell's really fresh and last's on your skin all day!



But the really secret is the lovely petal's which come floating out of the bath bomb! They fill your bath and look amazing, it was a really nice treat.



Do you have any favorite bath bomb's from Lush? Let me know to see if they are on my favorite list!

TRESemme Hairspray Review

I'm a massive fan of TRESemme hairspray I've been using it for a good 2 year's or so now and it is always a must buy for me. I have 3 can's on the go at the moment my everyday at home one Extra Hold Salon Finish, and a sample size one or handbag size from my March Glossybox which will come in useful, Also my current handbag hairspray with is the Superior Hold.



Both promise to be fast drying and to be brush out easily products, which I 100% agree with, They also have a really nice scent and don't seem to be to over powering, they do last all day which is great but I always like to carry a spare bottle in case of any emergencies.

The price of the TRESemme Hairspray is extremely good the 100ml handbag can's are £1.85, the 250ml can's are £2.69, and the salon size 500ml are £4.69.

So do you have any hairspray product's who just can't live without? Let me know!

Monu Warming Aromatic Mask Review

I'm a massive fan of using face masks and was super excited to receive one in my March Glossybox. I had not heard of the brand Monu before so I did have a little look online and all the review's seemed great, So I was excited to try the Warming Aromatic Mask.



I was a bit let down by the mask the first thing I noticed was the bottle, it was extremely hard to read the instruction's and the description as the writing is in such a bright green shade it just blended in with the bottle,  I also noticed when I put it on it didn't have a warming sensation with was a big let down but also the smell was extremely over powering. The other thing I disliked was the fact you have to cleanse/tone your face before applying and then tone again after using the mask, this massive routine kind of took the fun out of doing a face mask, but maybe it's just me being lazy.



It did how ever leave my face feeling refreshed and was noticeably clearer, so maybe try this product if you don't have such a sensitive nose!

I did think maybe it was just me being fussy, so I have used this product a further two times but still can not get along with it. So sorry to say I will not be re purchasing the Monu Warming Aromatic Mask.

Do you have any face mask's you love? Let me know so I can a little look!

Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream Review

I have heard so much about Elizabeth Arden product's but never brought one, mainly due to the price I was put of buying one but when I got a sample tube in my Glossybox I was rather pleased and couldn't wait to try it out.



The cream I would say is more like a gel with a sticky texture and a rather nice caramel smell, you only need about 2 pea side amounts for your face and then a little smear for any dry area's you need to protect, For me its mainly behind my knee's and I have a small dry patch at the top of my legs.



When applying the cream you will feel very sticky and look really shiny. So I would suggest using this product just before bed and not just before you go out! But after a few uses's I did notice a massive difference in my face and was extremely surprise and happy with the result.

So do you have any cream you love or loathe? Let me know!

Nails Inc Burton Street Review

I have always wanted to purchase some Nails Inc paint's but the price tag did put me of, I think £11 is way to much to spend on one pot of nail varnish. So when I received a sample pot in my Glossybox I did a little squeal of joy.

The colour is perfect for spring weather as it's a really pretty beige toned nude it goes with most outfits and looks effortless on the nails. I found it didn't chip at all and lasted a good 4-5 days on my nails before looking a little tired and I needed to remove it, taking it off my nails was easy as it didn't stain.

I love using the nail varnish and would happily pick up another bottle but maybe when it's been reduced or on special offer!

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush Review

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush Cranberry - £12 available www.jellypongpong.com 

I received this product in my March Glossybox and my first thought was 'oh no it's bright red!' I have quite a natural make up routine and was really worried as to how I was going to wear the lip blush but it turn out to be amazing!

The first thing I liked was texture it was extremely light and felt really hydrating, it didn't have an over bearing smell to it and lasted all night, So no need to re apply ever few hour's.

I wore it out on a night out with the family and was drinking pretty much all night, The great thing about this product was that it didn't leave a lipstick mark on the rim of the glass, which for me is a massive bonus as I personally hate lipstick stains!

My sister, mum and me wearing the lip product!

The only downside to the product is that it's only available in 2 shade's Cranberry or Marshmallow pink, I will be purchasing the Marshmallow pink soon and will do a second review on that shade.
