Palmer's Cocoa Butter Purifying Mask

Tuesday, 8 April 2014

So because I am a big fan of face masks, I'll try every single one under the sun!! I guess because of shift work, I like to feel a little bit pampered and really love taking care of my skin by treating it to a mask a few times a week. 

So as I was putting on my mask, I thought, why not do a review on the one I am using right now while I wait... Perfect!!!!

So this is another favourite face mask of mine! The Palmer's Purifying Mask!! It's a really lovely mask to just put on. It feels fresh and tingly to the skin which has a very cooking effect... And the smell is really nice.

So this mask is a purifying mask which draws out impurities, tighten and cools. Definitely cools as you instantly feel it. It's almost like a mint feel! Feels really cool, so this would be a fab 'holiday' mask for that burnt nose, cheeks oh forehead!

It has green clay and sweet almond oil and a lovely fresh white lily fragrance to it.

What I love about this mask is that it is for all skin types. It has Kaolin clay which dries on the surface of the skin to deep clean and draw out impurities. Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter for light hydration and Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Milk proteins soothe stressed skin.

This mask I must say is lovely and really does the job in making my skin appear glowy and radiant!! 

My skin feels refreshed and clean!

F.A.S.T Shampoo & Conditioner

Sunday, 6 April 2014

So after getting a hair cut last year and going wild (from very long to very short), I was determined to grow my hair as fast as I could so that I could get my long locks back. When i mean from very long to very short, I mean from having hair touching my hips to hair touching my chest! Yes... Major difference. I really don't know why I decided to cut it as short as I did, I guess I wanted a change... Well at least I got a good healthy chop!! I remember my hairdresser saying 'Debbie are you sure you want to go shorter?' 

Anyways, to cut the story short, I shot myself in the foot and I was longing for my long hair again. I especially noticed the difference when I had my hair tied up in a pony tail. It was so short I felt I couldn't even feel it.

It was then that I remembered a time I was walking into Boots and saw a shelf with a few 'on offer' products. One of them being a shampoo and conditioner called F.A.S.T!!! I went straight onto Google and read as much as I could on the products. All positive of course. But did it work?

F.A.S.T (Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy) is a blend of natural herbs and essential amino acids which provides the basis for quick healthy hair growth. The shampoo and conditioner works in combination to grow your hair as fast as possible... Up to 99%!!! It stimulates the hair growth and addresses all sorts of problems like a bad haircut, slow growing hair, and even weak dry hair that is prone to breakage. 

So there I was in Boots, the next day to purchase these products. It retails at £24.99 and you get the shampoo and conditioner. You can't buy these products separately. 

So after purchasing F.A.S.T I was excited to start using it. I know that the packaging isn't exactly the most glamorous on the bathroom shelf but who cares when what's important is what is inside. 

The smell is lovely although from what I have read, there are some people who don't like it. I made sure the shampoo penetrated my scalp for a good few minutes, doing exactly the same with the conditioner. It states that there are better results when you rinse your hair with hot water, I'm quite lucky in that fact as I love a really hot shower. Those that like luke warm water, I wouldn't know if the results would be the same.

So after washing my hair and drying it, the feeling is amazing and the hair feels sooooooo soft! Of course you're not going to see results after the first wash! But you do see results on the condition of the hair! Super silky, soft and smelling great! 

So does it work?

Yes!!!! Yes!!!! Yes!!!! It really does!!! My boyfriend was amazed at the results! It even gives you volume!!!! Something that I love in hair! I love big bouncy hair. Now I don't remember how many of these I went through. It does say you should wash your hair everyday with F.A.S.T to achieve better results, but I only used it every 3 to 4 days and the results were still amazing!

Now, I cut my hair in April 2013 and in August 2013 just 4 months after, this was the result!

The results after 4 months was just out of this world!!! I had never seen anything like it!!! Definitinately worth every penny!!!!!! 

So if you've had a bad haircut or your hair just grows really slow, this is definitely the product to use! I swear by it!!! Need I say anymore? Let me know your thoughts and experiences!

Check F.A.S.T out on for reviews, testimonials and lots of yummy info on these fab products.

My NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm has arrived!!!!!

Tuesday, 1 April 2014

Knowing I was on my way to the post office to pick up my delivery from Escentual, made my smile even bigger than it usually is.

I was so excited to try the NUXE Rêve de Miel Lip Balm, and to see what the whole fuss was about and don't I know it now!!! Yes beautiful peeps, this lip balm is amazing and definitely worth getting.

First of all, the pot... It's so darn cute! I love the frosted glass! It looks smart in your bag or even on your bedside table. The pot isn't at all heavy and fits nicely almost anywhere.

The smell.... OMG!!! It's to die for! As soon as I open it to put some on my lips, I have to smell it first! It has a citrus, organgy, honey smell to it! AMAZING!!! You'll want to be smelling it all day! Trust me! Actually... You'll want to eat it like me!

The consistency... Luxurious & divine! It's so buttery and moussey, like whipped cream, you'll just want to dip your fingers constantly in it. I'm serious!!!

The feel on the lips... AMAZING!!!! My lips are really dry, and this just kissed them all better. It leaves a matt effect on the lips which is great. Perfect for those who love their lipsticks and glosses! I felt a difference as soon as I coated my lips. And the nice thing is that you don't need a lot! 

I cannot wait to see the results in a few days time! Will definitely be reporting back! I'm sure it will be positive! 

I picked up my NUXE from and they even threw in a nail file for me! And it's white!!! Love it!!!! Thanks a million guys!!!

Who else loves this little pot of goodness???
