100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Fruity Beauty Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask. This face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can buy it for 90p.

This mask is a regular peel-off mask. You apply it, let it dry (15 minutes), peel it off, wash your face… and that’s already it! 🙂

So how’s the mask? I think it’s really nice. It made my skin feel soft and clear, and I loved the tropical mango and lemon fragrance.

I would recommend this face mask to anyone who’s looking for an effective peel-off mask that smells like… summer and sun. 🙂

Montagne Jeunesse’s Fruity Beauty Peel Off face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

Have you tried this mask or would you like to try it? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria, Orly Liquid Vinyl & Stamping With Pueen 55 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge I – Inspired By A Colour

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while back. I really liked this mani, so I’m not sure why I left it for so long…

Anyway, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 425 My Denim (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap, Victoria (ring fingers), and Orly Liquid Vinyl (middle fingers).

I used Orly Snow Cone (pinkies, index fingers, thumbs), Orly Liquid Vinyl (ring fingers) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 310 Gilty Pleasure (middle fingers) as my stamping colours.

The stamping plate I used is Pueen’s 55 plate which is part of Pueen’s Buffet Leisure collection.

This mani is my interpretation of the Inspired By A Colour challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. The colour in question is, obviously, blue. 🙂

How do you like this mani? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility Bath Creams

Hi there! Today’s review is about 2 bath products that I’ve been enjoying lately – Imperial Leather Paradise Island & Sea Of Tranquility. Whilst I generally prefer a shower, nothing beats a hot bath on a cold evening. 🙂 Now, without further ado, onto the reviews!
imperial-leather-bath-03
Imperial Leather Paradise Island with peach nectar & vanilla bean smells exactly like peach nectar and vanilla! I love the gorgeous fragrance because it’s beautifully done and because it smells like… summer, sunlight, warmth and pure happiness. Awesome stuff!

Imperial Leather Sea Of Tranquility with sea samphire & marine elements is really good too. The fragrance is definitely marine, but fortunately it doesn’t smell like a bath product for men. Very nice!

All in all, I’m happy with these products and I’d recommend them – especially Paradise Island! 🙂 I bought these two 500ml bath creams for either 99p or £1 each at one of the bargain stores (I think it was Home Bargains).

Reducing My Oldies Stash – L’Oréal Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! I’ve got a hair care post for you today! A little while ago I found L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner at my local Tesco.  I had never seen this hair care combo before, so I just bought it. And now I’ve finally gotten around to try these products, so let me tell you if they’re any good. 🙂

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo for very damaged and dry hair is very nice. It feels gentle, and I do believe that it has hair repairing powers. This shampoo feels great on my head, and it makes my hair feel super soft.

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Conditioner is just as nice. This conditioner is one of the best L’Oréal conditioners. It detangles my hair with ease, and I swear I can feel that this conditioner repairs my hair. It’s really good! Well done, L’Oréal!

L’Oréal’s Elvive Full Restore 5 Extreme Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 400ml each for about £4.50 each at Tesco’s (I’ve never seen them anywhere else). I bought these 2 hair care products on a BOGOF deal. 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mask I picked up a few weeks ago – Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask.

I like a good sauna mask, and the pumpkin pie theme sounded perfect for this time of year. So there was no reason not to buy it. 🙂

Now that I’ve tried this face mask, I’m happy to report that it’s freakishly amazing! This mask isn’t just a sauna mask, it’s also a scrub mask!

This means that the mask is self-heating, so it opens the pores. And on top of that you can give your face a good scrub for that extra deep clean feel!

I’m really glad I bought this mask. And I would recommend it to everyone! I will definitely pick up a few more of these masks!

Montagne Jeunesse Pumpkin Pie Sauna Mask is exclusive to Primark where you can pick it up for 90p. This product is also certified cruelty-free!
