Bath & body works hand sanitizers

One of the many reasons I'd love to live in america is that they have Bath & Body works over there. A shop which sells so many different scented candles, body lotions, body mists and various other little things is literally my idea of heaven, and if I lived in America I would no doubt spend nearly all my money in there as often as I could! Sadly however, here in the UK they don't have any Bath & Body works shops, nor do Bath & Body works ship too the UK (sigh). Luckily for me though, I was lucky enough to get my hands on some various Bath & Body works bits, including these hand sanitizers.

I got 5 different 'scents', if that's what you'd call them? Including Iced gingerbread, sweet pea, sugar plum dream, warm vanilla sugar and sweet clementine. The first thing I noticed was how all of them smell absolutely lovely! I noticed how the sweet clementine almost smelt of calpol a bit while smelling of oranges at the same time, if that is even possible haha?

Anyway, it smelt lovely never the less and I was also surprised of how long the scent lasted after I had used them! I'm a bit obsessed with always having hand sanitizer with me at all times and I cant stand the thought of germs, so the fact that these are anti bacterial and smell great makes me love them even more! I'll definitely be on the look out on amazon/ebay for some more of these.

                                        Have you tried anything from Bath and Body works?

Blissful mistful & Vanilla kisses

I'm a massive fan of sweet smelling things, and its not often two sweet smelling products can be worn together which don't horrendously clash. However, I seem to of found possibly one my favorite scent combinations yet? I love both these products and those of you that follow me would of seen my post about Zoella's Blistful Mistful (you can see it here) and Impulses vanilla kisses has been my go to spray ever since I've tried it. So naturally, I decided to try them together and I loved the way they smell together!

Although I have to go light handed with the both of them when wearing them together to avoid smelling far too overpowering, with the right amount from both they compliment each other perfectly and leave a lovely sweet/floral scent. I feel like this may not be the perfect Autumnal scent, but nevertheless I love it and come summer I'll be wearing it even more!

                                   Whats your favorite scent combination at the minute?

**My camera is broke at the minute so I may not be posting as regularly as I hope too, however as soon as it is fixed I will return with lots of posts!**

Wizard bubble bar

The wizard bubble bar was part of Lush's Halloween range and despite Halloween being come and gone, I still feel this bubble bar deserves a post on my blog.

The actual bubble bar itself is purple and has a silver shimmer to it, and although the bubble bar itself looks like a wizards hat, it has a little face with two eyes and a little yellow star on it too.

With a mix of ylang ylang, fennel, tangerine and juniperberry oils, this is a pretty amazing bubble bar when it comes to the scent of it, and although I've read some posts on this bubble bar saying the scent doesn't last long and isn't very strong, I found that mine was actually quite strong and the scent stayed on my skin for a few hours after my bath, and it also left my skin feeling soft! Despite the bubble bar itself having a lovely shimmer to it, after my bath had been drained there was no residue or shimmer left at the bottom of the bath, which is always good!

I definitely wish I had bought some more of these before they vanished of shelves and will be keeping a look out for it next year! Did you try this bubble bar?

Beauty UK eyebrow palette

                                                       Beauty UK eyebrow pallet, £3.99 here.

Filling in my eyebrows are the most frustrating part of my everyday makeup, and its safe to say I have a massive love hate relationship with them (although most days at 7.00am when I'm getting ready for school, its mainly hate). Although my eyebrows aren't the thinnest they could be, sadly for me nor are they the thickest or flawless they could be and look much better filled in.

I've tried countless products to help fill in my brows, and a firm favorite of mine was the collection 2000 eyebrow definer pencil which was the star of my makeup bag for at least 6 months, but after watching countless YouTube tutorials of girls shaping and filling their brows, one thing I noticed was they all recommended power to fill in brows as it gives a much more natural, longer lasting look. I saw this in superdrug for £3.99 and decided to give it a go.

Its fair to say this little nifty product is more than worth its price, it includes a small pair of tweezers and brush, a setting wax and a choice of 3 shades depending on your colouring, which is pretty good considering most company's either have light or dark to choose from when it comes to brow fillers. I have dark brown hair and use a mix of the dark brown and lighter colour, and it gives me the perfect shade without looking too dark. As far as the setting wax goes, I've only used it once or twice so I cant really say much about it, but the powder lasts a good 6/7 hours on its own anyway, so I can only imagine the setting wax would add to this, and possibly give a more sleek look.

I cant really think of many downsides to this, I've been using it for about 2 months and I only have positive things to say about it. One thing I would have to say is that it doesn't have a mirror which would be useful, but taking into consideration what you get for such a low price, I really cannot complain. I would definitely recommend this to anyone on the look out for a cheap brow powder and will be repurchasing this when needed!

                                         Do you use anything to fill in your brows? If so what?

My skin savior


                                                  Pore penetrating mask, £5 Avon. 

Since I was about 13, I always remember having blackheads on my nose, which really isn't very appealing. I've been through face wash after face wash targeted at busting blackheads, various face masks and nose strips and nothing ever really worked wonders for me, until now.

I ordered this from the sale in Avon months ago, it was around £2.50 and I wasn't really expecting anything special, but I couldn't of been more wrong. Without beating around the bush, this face mask is literally a miracle worker for me. Within a few uses, near enough every blackhead had disappeared and it left my nose extremely soft, I was absolutely amazed!

The only thing i disliked about this is how it felt while drying on my skin, it felt very tight and I could barely even smile by the time it had dried, but I really cant complain considering how much this has worked for me and for the price, even £5 in my opinion is such a great price for this.

I really cant recommend this enough to anyone who suffers from blackheads to give this a go because it really has worked wonders for me and the price is great for what it is, a little goes a long way too!

                                 Do you know of any products which get rid of blackheads?
