Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel & Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 2 shower products which I started to use just last week – Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream.

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel smells of candied cherries. It’s not the most sophisticated fragrance, but I’m enjoying it. I also like the formula. Whilst this is a shower gel, it doesn’t feel drying at all. Nicely done, Radox!

Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream is very nice! It’s gentle on dry skin and the berry fragrance is fresh and fruity (without that overly ripe aroma that most berry-scented products have). I like this one very much, and I know I’ll buy it again!

Radox Cherry Blast Shower Gel and Radox Feel Glam With Berry Burst Shower Cream are available as 250ml each. I paid £1 each (Poundland).

Primark Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask. This face mask contains coconut fruit extract, sodium hyaluronate, panthenol, witch hazel and other botanical extracts. It promises to hydrate skin deeply.
The instructions show that you’re supposed to cleanse your skin, place the mask on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then massage the remaining essence into your skin. And that’s pretty much it.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s really good. I found the mask to be deeply hydrating – without being sticky. So yeah, I’m happy to report that the mask did what it promised to do! Based on my experience, I’d recommend it!

Primark‘s Holler And Glow Gem Fest Moisturising Printed Sheet Mask is available as a 22ml single use face mask for £3. I paid £1 (special offer).

Nail Of The Day – China Glaze Pure Joy, Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 04

Hi there! Merry Christmas, everyone! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with China Glaze Pure Joy (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

Pure Joy is one of my favourite Christmas glitter polishes. It’s an oldie, but it’s definitely a goldie!

For the images I used MoYou London‘s cute Festive 04 stamping plate. The 2 polishes I stamped with are Manhattan Quick Dry 46K (red) and Rimmel Salon Pro 544 Bewitch (green).

Again – Merry Christmas, everyone! 🎅

I ♥ Revolution Mermaid’s Heart Eyeshadow Palette

Hi there! Today’s post is about this I ♥ Revolution Mermaid’s Heart Eyeshadow Palette which I picked up for half price (£3.50).

This palette contains 12 eyeshadows – a mix of shimmers and mattes. As you can see, the colour scheme is all about the sea and sand!

The top row has 4 shimmers and 2 mattes. Shade 1 is a pale yellow. Shade 2 is a minty colour. Shade 3 is a sunny yellow. Shade 4 is a pearly taupe. Shade 5 is a warm bronze. And shade 6 is a bright turquoise. The mattes are rather chalky, but the shimmers are wonderfully buttery!

The bottom row has 2 shimmers and 4 mattes. Shade 1 is a dusty beige. Shade 2 is a matte medium blue. Shade 3 is a shimmery forest green. Shade 4 is a shimmery gold. Shade 5 is a cobalt blue. And shade 6 is a matte charcoal. Again, the mattes aren’t great, but the shimmers are a dream!

I enjoy wearing the shimmery shades; they look gorgeous and they give me no trouble at all. However, I need quite a bit of product (and patience) when it comes to the matte shades. I’ll continue to wear the shimmers, and I’ll use the chalky matte eyeshadows to make stamping polish!
