REVLON Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Review

Today I will talk about the REVLON Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain.
REVLON Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain ~ 7.99£ at Superdrug

What Revlon says: It’s a pampering balm fused with a lightweight lipstain in an adorable chubby crayon. Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain gives softer, smoother lips with a perfect flush of color that lasts hour after hour. The gel formula comes in 12 vibrant shades that match any look or mood. 

 I have been thinking about buying one of these for aaages, but i finally gave in many weeks ago. I was at the Revlon stall at Superdrug looking at all of them and Crush jumped out for me. It is a dark purpley(!)-red. haha.

What I think: Once applied, it is very soft, moisturising, it smells of mint and has a vibrant colour. I would say the balm it self lasts around 2-3 hours and the stain much longer. Even while eating or drinking the balm and the stain do stay on. Even if it starts to go it will go away gracefully(?) hahaha what I mean is it wont just flake at places. I would compare it to the Korres Lip Butters but bare in mind they are different products, they just remind me of each other. Remember to look out for 3 for 2 offers at Boots and Superdrug.

Would I re-purchase: YES
Would I buy in different colours: YES
Would I recommend: YES
Do I want to use it everyday all day: YES

''Free'' November Glossybox 2012

I say ''Free'' because I got this via my freebie points from Vodafone. So it wasn't really free, but it kinda was. haha.

So the box itself is the box they gave out in November.

I also have to say from just looking at the products I can say this is one of the best boxes I have gotten from Glossybox.Why?
 When I heard that they have given out the Dr.Jart+ BB cream I was gutted that I wasnt sunscribed that month. But now I received it with this. WOOOOO. 
Also, the Mango body butter is really nice, i tried it on my hand and it really does smell like mango, it is very thinck but dryes quickly. 
In the box was the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant which I usually like most Dermalogica I have tried. 
A hand cream from Crabtree and Evelyn which I am interested in trying. 
Last but not least in the box there was a tiny Nails inc top coat which is so cute!

So that is all, I think i quite like this box. I will keep you updated once I try all the products.

Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo ~ First Impression

I was shopping at Waitrose the other day and I remembered that the shampoo I was using had run out, so i passed by the hair shampoo isle and decided to try out this Aussie Shampoo. I did not buy the conditioner even thought they had 2 for 7£. 

I used it today. I have to say I usually wash my hair two times and sometimes with different shampoos, but today i washed it twice with only this shampoo. After the first wash my hair was literally squeaky clean. I quite like it.

I usually blow dry my hair but when my hair is so clean it does not take a really long time to dry, so today i didn't. 

On the bottle it says that it smells really good and your flat mate will ask you what it is, while it does while in the bottle it doesn't really leave an after smell. Which I like when shampoos do.

All in all, my first impression is excellent. I will have to wait and use it more and check if it will built up like other shampoos do.

Have you even used Aussie products? What do you think?

Product(s) of the week #2

Soap and Glory.

-The Rigtheous Butter Body Lotion (Body Lotion). -Clean on me (Shower Gel). -Make Yourself Youthful (Rejuvanating Face Serum). -Smooch operator (Lip Butter).

My first product that I bought from soap and glory was the body lotion and i instantly fell in love with it, for its smell and its general awesomeness. Then I got the shower gel which has the same smell. A few weeks ago I bought the serum and the lip butter because mine had run out.

I love Soap and Glory for different reasons. To begin with, their packaging is fun and vintage looking. The quality of the product is incredible! Lastly your money is spend wisely when you buy soap and glory products because they are long lasting.

I love the smell of the products and they are all very hydrating.

You should take advantage of the 3for2 offer currently at Boots.


~Edit: Actually my first purchase from Soap and Glory is the Sugar Crush exfoliating thing, which is good but I dont see much difference.

Product Of The Week #1.

    Hey there, I've been wanting to blog for so long but I only have mobile Internet at home so I don't want to upload my camera pictures on the blog because it will eat up my Internet hence the lack of posts.

    BUT I have a lot of products I want to talk about so I hope you don't mind the low quality pictures for a bit.

    So here it goes, a new series of posts called products of the week. I could do monthly favourites but I do not feel like that is me (?). 

    Today I want to talk to you about the AMAZING Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. As you can already tell I quite like it. Maybe abit more than just like it. Lets face it, I adore this product. I love the packaging because when you squeeze it to get product just a small size will come out, which is great because you only get what you really need.  

    I use it every morning, night and in the shower. It does foam but not that much that you could drown your self in it! (HAHA). It is unsented and full of goodness. I like it because AMAZINGLY, it gets rid of black heads and minimizes my pores. It is unbelievable. I have dry skin and it does not make it worse, it does says that it is moisturising. It can also take off makeup directly and dont be afraid to try and take off your mscara with it, I do it all the time, just make sure you rinse well with water.

 In the shower and some times during morning or night, i use it along side the St.Ives Olive Scrub which is also great and very moisturising without the beads hurting your face. They are both made in the UK, which is very good. I enjoy using other products from the simple line also, such as the makeup wipes and the makeup remover and i really like both.

Have you ever used simple or st.ives products? What do you think? Let me know.
