Products I'm using this week

VO5 Strong hold hairspray
I don't use hairspray often, but after purchasing this about a month ago, I have fallen in love with it! It sets my hair when I put it up, but doesn't leave it feeling like cardboard and my hair still has loads of movement. Also, it smells like a nice perfume, not toxic or over powering!

Bio oil
I am using this at the moment because I am trying to reduce the scar I have on my hand, (mole + mini operation = horrid scar on hand) forgot just how much of a wonder product this is! After two days use it has reduced redness around the scar, a winner in my books.

Batiste dry shampoo 400 ml
I bought this about a week ago, it's massive compared to the normal sized can, and is definitely not for travelling lightly but I'm so impressed! I get through so much dry shampoo its unbelievable, I use it daily to give my hair some much needed volume as it is incredibly fine, so I love this size. I bought it from my local Boots, and it was priced reasonably at £4.99.

The Righteous Butter
I have been using this on dry patches on my skin such as my elbows and knees, it is a very rich moisturiser so I haven't had to use a lot to get good use out of it. I personally think it smells divine, but I don't mind heavy scents in products! One downside is that it takes forever to sink in, which can be annoying if you are rushing to get somewhere.

St. Moritz spray tan
Now, I will happily admit I am a tanning-phobe. I have embraced ghostly pale skin every summer since I can remember, this all stems from a bad tanning experience. Imagine, bright orange with white patches ALL over, it was horrendous! However I am not going abroad this year so I have felt slightly pushed to fake tanning as a last resort.. Am I glad I took the plunge? Yes! Thank goodness for great self tanner and exfoliating products! St. Moritz made me go a lovely olive toned tan, which I love, not a patch in sight either. Because it is a spray I had to use a mitt and put a towel down, it did get slightly messy but I think it is safe to say I am completely converted, woo!

Vaseline sheer infusion body lotion
I used this when I fake tanned, and although I am not 100% bowled over by it, the product sunk in quickly and didn't smell overly offensive. One that I will use as a back up next time I think!

Revlon Cherries in the Snow
I have been feeling brave this week it seems! I never wear bright or dark colours, I am a nude girl through and through. Recently however, I have become a bit bored with colour that doesn't have a huge amount of pay off. This is a gorgeous, blue toned pinky red, I do need to buy a lip liner to go with it though to save myself smearing it all over my face.

Topshop cream blusher in Butterscotch
I haven't seen a lot about this colour, it was the one that stood out to me when I peered over the collection when it was released. Of course, like most things I loved it, then threw it to the back of my drawer never to be seen again, until now! Nothing better than learning to love a product all over again.

Mac Woodwinked
You have all seen this, but I've rediscovered it again. I have gotten into the habit of swiping Naked Lunch on my eyes, and leaving in a hurry. Miraculously I decided to switch it up a bit and use Woodwinked instead, for now I like this routine, I expect by next week I will be using something else, the joys in life.

You Rebel - Lite
I dug this baby out when I fake tanned, I'm unsure as to whether i like using it in the UK, I have only ever used it on holiday, hmm. Unsure. Give me another week and I'll let you know.

Tic Tac Cherry Passion
I am completely obsessed, they taste amazing! The cherry flavour reminds me of My Baby All Gone, did anyone have that as a kid in the 90's?? Well, if you did it tastes like the smell of the cherry jar..

Submarine DVD
If you haven't watched this, you should. Here is the trailer: Submarine (The book is amazing too)

Primark plaited bracelet
I love this, I thought the tassels would annoy me but they don't, the only downside is, I have to get someone to put it on for me or I struggle for ages.

Primark ring
I have worn this quite a few times now without getting a green finger, inevitably this means instant love :)

Phew. Hello to all new lovely followers too, Hope you are all well!


  1. I saw the new tic tacs the other day and had to grab them to have a try - they are so yummy! Will be buying several more packs! xo

  2. I've never tried You Rebel - is it a kind of tinted moisturiser? Pure rubbish when it comes to makeup/cosmetic stuff! xx

  3. I will have to try out the righteous butter! I have scaly patches on my wrists and I think that would be the perfect thing to try! Great advice.

  4. Hannah Kimberley - Whenever I buy petrol, I buy about 6 packs, I'm addicted!

    Kirsty - Yeah, it's a tinted moisturiser but it is quite pricey, and I wouldn't say its amazing as it does go quite patchy on my skin :(

    R. Grace - I've found it worked well on my dry patches :) Boots stock loads of different types of soap and glory body butter too, so you have a lot of choice!


  5. Will definetely have to get the topshop cream blush its shade is perfect for autumn. I have been wearing the shade flush all summer but it'll be a tad bright for day time in a few months time !

    ps. Thanks for being my first follower.

  6. Great reviews! :)

    Small tip: if you're having green-finger situation, just paint inside of the nail using the clear nail polish :) X


  7. I found the rebel lite too sticky and didn't really cover much! great post! x

  8. these are all great stuff. i love that primark ring. it's super cute. i've recently ran out of hairspray so i think i'll try the VO5 strong hold. it seems like it works great!
