Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari

Hi there! Today’s post is about a small eyeshadow palette – Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari. As you can see, these are shimmery neutral eyeshadows.

I think this little eyeshadow quad is quite nice. I always do dark outer corners, so I can’t use this quad on its own. However, I like the pale sand shade (bottom) as an inner corner highlight, and the other 3 shades are great on the lids, and they blend very well. I really like the colours – they go very well with my green eyes!

I’ve done and redone the swatches and took dozens of photos each time. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to catch the eyeshadows in all their glory. The pale sand shade (bottom) hardly shows at all because it’s almost the same shade as my pale forearm – that’s if you ignore the shimmer!

But yeah, these eyeshadows are really good. I’ve previously had Rimmel eyeshadows and small compacts, and some of them were disappointing. Because of this, this quad was a nice surprise!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this eyeshadow quad! Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow 019 Sun Safari is available at a number of online outlets. I paid £1 (Poundland).

Spa Premium Epsom Salts And Eucalyptus

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Spa Premium Epsom Salts And Eucalyptus. I’ve always loved bubble baths, but my buddy Anne Brooke got me into buying bath salts. And now… for the first time in eons… I finally managed to take a bath with bath salts!

Alrighty, these bath salts promise to help the body (and skin too, I guess) relax after a long day. The instructions state that half the pack is sufficient for a bath, and a quarter of the pack is the right amount of bath salts for a foot bath. The recommended soak time is 15-20 minutes. OK!

15-20 minutes for a bath isn’t enough for me. I’m someone who bathes for 40+ minutes. Anyhoo… I’m happy to report that these bath salts were enjoyable, and they’ve temporarily helped with my back and shoulder pain. This was great! I couldn’t smell any eucalyptus, but I don’t mind this at all.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend these bath salts! Spa Premium Epsom Salts And Eucalyptus are available as 495g for £1 at Poundstretcher!

L’Oréal Pure Clay Multi-Masking Kit / Detox, Purity & Glow Masks

Hi there! Today’s post is about this L’Oréal Pure Clay Multi-Masking Play Kit which contains 3 10ml face masks – L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Face Mask, L’Oréal Pure Clay Purity Face Mask, and L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Face Mask. I paid £3.50 for this set.

The first mask I tried from the set was L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Face Mask which contains 3 pure clays and charcoal. According to L’Oréal, the mask acts like a magnet that draws out impurities. Sounds promising!

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s good. I didn’t care for the masculine fragrance, but I was happy with the mask’s skin cleansing powers. My skin felt a bit dry afterwards, but that was OK because that’s how I knew the mask worked. The dryness was easy to combat with a bit of face mist, serum and moisturiser.

Onto L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Face Mask with 3 pure clays and red algae. This mask promises to exfoliate and to brighten the skin.

Unfortunately, this mask contains ground apricot pits. This stuff is too harsh for facial skin! If I had looked at the ingredients first, I wouldn’t have used the mask. I also don’t think that it was brightening. The only good thing about this mask was the pleasant fragrance.

The last mask I tried was L’Oréal Pure Clay Purity Face Mask with 3 pure clays and eucalyptus. This mask claims to give pores a deep, purifying cleanse for a matte look – all without drying out the skin.

This is another mask that’s good but not great. Whilst I agree that the mask felt clarifying, it also felt like it left a dry film on my skin. I guess this one’s probably more suited for oily skin types.

If you’re interested, L’Oréal Pure Clay Detox Face Mask, L’Oréal Pure Clay Purity Face Mask, and L’Oréal Pure Clay Glow Face Mask are available as 50ml each for £7.99 each. I’m glad I was able to try these masks, but I won’t buy any of the full sizes because there are better masks for less money out there.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Refreshing Toning Mist

upload-3Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist. This product used to be called Refreshing Toning Mist (as you can see in the photo), but the name has been changed recently.

Anyhoo… this product contains vitamin E as well as vitamins A, B, F and H which, together with horse chestnut extract, promise to care for dry skin. The product also claims that its antioxidant complex protects skin from environmental damage and that it prevents premature skin aging.

I’ve been using this face mist since January, and I love it! I use it twice a day, right after I’ve cleansed my face, and immediately before I apply my serum.

Sometimes I also spray my face again right before I apply my moisturiser or a facial oil. And I also use it after I’ve put on my make-up, although in this case I spray the product into the air and let it fall on my face. I do this because otherwise I’d end up with wet patches on my face (this is because of the spray nozzle…)

All in all, this face mist is truly outstanding! It’s definitely one of the best face mists I’ve ever tried. It’s super hydrating, and it helps me stay on top of my winter skin. Based on my experience, I’d recommend it to everyone, especially to those with dry skin!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Hydrating Mist is available as 150ml for £3.49. This product is 100% vegan and cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). Superdrug usually runs a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Price promotion on their Vitamin E products which makes the product even better value!

Nail Of The Day – Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst & Stamping With Born Pretty BP-L078

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

For this mani I painted my nails with Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Sunburst (2 coats). I’m enjoying Barry M’s holographic nail colours. They look amazing! I wish they did more colours though. At this point, there are just 5. Fingers crossed for more!

The stamping plate I used is my relatively new Born Pretty BP-L078 plate. I love the images on this plate, and I really want to use it again for my next mani!

I had to use a random black nail polish to stamp. That’s why the images aren’t as sharp as I would have liked them to be. But I still liked this mani!

Palmolive Pampering Clay Body Wash & Palmolive Purifying Clay Body Wash

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels I picked up for £1 at my local Tesco – Palmolive Pampering Clay Body Wash and Palmolive Purifying Clay Body Wash.

Palmolive Pampering Clay Body Wash with Damascena rose is wonderful. It feels deeply cleansing, but it’s not drying at all. I love the gorgeous rose fragrance. My husband’s a fan of this shower gel too. Needless to say, this one will be used a lot over the next few weeks, and it’ll also be repurchased!

Palmolive Purifying Clay Body Wash with aloe leaf juice powder is simply fabulous! This exfoliating shower gel is very effective, but also gentle on the skin. And the fragrance is lovely too. This is another shower gel that will be repurchased, no doubt!

Palmolive Pampering Clay Body Wash and Palmolive Purifying Clay Body Wash are available as 250ml each. I’d recommend these two shower gels to everyone!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Super Green Tea Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up for 90p at my local Primark – Montagne Jeunesse Super Green Tea Peel Off.

This face mask with green tea and lemon extracts promises to detoxify and to invigorate skin. Sounds great!

How does it work? Cleanse your face, apply the mask, let it dry (this takes about 15 minutes), then peel it off. Once done, wash your face so that you remove any mask residue.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think it’s alright. Of all the Montagne Jeunesse masks I’ve tried over the years, this one sits pretty much in the middle. I think it would be good for someone who’s never used peel off masks. But if you’re used to more powerful peel off masks, this one won’t cut it.

I also don’t care for the strange tea and hairspray scent, but the next person might love it… Anyhoo, I won’t be buying this mask again, but if you’re interested, Montagne Jeunesse Super Green Tea Peel Off face mask is available as a 10ml single-use face mask. By the way, this product carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means that it’s 100% cruelty-free!

Nail Of The Day – L’Oréal Color Riche 210 Shocking Pink & NYC In A Minute 276 Big City Dazzle

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a while ago. It might have been last summer – oops!

For this mani I painted my nails with L’Oréal Color Riche 210 Shocking Pink. I don’t like the colour pink (any shade of pink) in clothes or accessories, but I love bright pink shades like this one on my nails. 🥰

The glitter top coat I used is NYC In A Minute Big City Dazzle. This glitter looks amazing in real life – it’s in my all-time top 5 of glitters. You have no idea how annoyed I am that I couldn’t capture its magic in the photo. But there’s always next time, so fingers crossed!

Anyhoo… I liked this mani a lot. It was easy to do, and it looked bright and sparkly!
