Bling Pop did an amazing job with their Pumpkin face mask.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You, Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 super cute shower gels that I picked up at my local Poundland store – Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth. Seriously – how cute are these? 😍

Alrighty, let’s get to the reviews! Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You has a “shimmering ice crystals & arctic pearls” fragrance. It’s difficult to describe it, but I’d call it a candied marine fragrance. It’s something kids would enjoy! But not just kids. I like this shower gel. My husband likes this shower gel. So… I’d recommend this one. It’s unique and fun!

Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth with its “tropical rainforest & water mint” fragrance smells green, minty and masculine. I don’t want to say they forgot the “for men” sticker, but this one doesn’t smell like a girly shower gel at all. I do like it, and it’s a great, refreshing shower gel for hot summer days. But I think my husband likes it a bit more than I do. All in all, I would recommend this shower gel. It’s really unique too!

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth are available as 400ml each. I paid £1 each.

Bling Pop Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin

Hi there! Today’s I’m revieweing a face mask – Bling Pop’s Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin. In addition to pumpkin fruit extract, vitamin E and sodium hyaluronate, this mask contains a number of botanical extracts. This is nice!

In order to get the best results, you’re supposed to use the mask after you’ve cleansed your face. Leave it on for 15 – 20 minutes, then massage the remaining essence from the sachet into your skin.

I think this face mask is fantastic. I’ve already used 4 of the 10 masks I’ve got, and I’m really happy with them. I agree that these masks brighten my skin (although this effect is temporary), and I can confirm that these masks feel soothing and smoothing. These masks make my skin look great!

Bling Pop’s Soothing & Brightening Face Mask With Pumpkin is available as a pack of 10 sheet masks. I only paid £5.99 (TK Maxx) for these amazing face masks!

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon & Gold Foils

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Matte Suede 863 Ruby Ribbon (2 coats). This is one of my oldest unloved polishes. 😄 When I bought it, I had no idea what matte suede even meant in terms of nail polish.

When I used this polish for the first time, I was disappointed because it dried down to a matte and streaky mess. It was incredibly ugly.

Now back to today’s mani! I used gold foil to give the plain burgundy shade some sparkle. And 1 coat of clear polish added extra shine. I liked this mani – and I will do more foil manis over the next few weeks.

Skin Food New Zealand Mud Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I’ve been using for a weeks – Skinfood New Zealand Mud Masque. This face mask contains Rotorua mud, spirulina, apricot oil, aloe vera and jojoba oil, and it promises to “work as a deep cleanser to soften and relax the skin“. The mask also claims that results (smaller pores and softer skin) are noticeable after 1 use.

How does it work? Apply it to your face, leave it on for 5-10 minutes, then remove with warm water and a damp cloth. Now let me tell you if this mask is any good…

I’ve used this mask a few times now, and I think it’s really good. It feels deeply cleansing and it makes my pores look smaller. I don’t think that the mask makes my skin feel softer, but I’m happy to report that it doesn’t feel drying. My husband likes this mask too, and we’re happy to continue to use it.

Skinfood New Zealand Mud Masque is available as 100ml. I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).

Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion

Hi there! Today’s post is about Vaseline’s Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion.

I’ve been using this body lotion for a few weeks now (it’s near empty), and I just love it!

The lotion is easy to spread, and it’s absorbed in no time. I love the non-greasy formula. It’s perfect for warmer days when you don’t want to use a heavy body butter.

I’ve previously only used Vaseline’s cocoa body lotion, and I actually regret not giving this one a try sooner.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this body lotion. I will buy it again for sure!

Vaseline’s Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion is available as 200ml and 400ml. I paid £1 for the 200ml bottle.

Nail Of The Day – Beauty UK 76 Jade & Stamping With Pict You Stamping Plates

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Beauty UK 76 Jade (2 coats). This is a great polish in every way. I wish Beauty UK products were still available at Superdrug – I miss their nail polish sets!

Back to this mani… I used 2 of my new stamping plates – Pict You PY-J028 and Pict You PY-J034.

As you can see, I double-stamped. I used a random black Rimmel nail polish (it already got lost in my stash, so I can’t tell you which one it was) and Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 330 Silhouette.

Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive & Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 shower gels – Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive & Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh. I already tried 2 shower gels from Radox’s Scent Touch collection, so I thought I’d try these 2 as well.

Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive with honeydew melon and papaya has a yellow, happy fragrance. I think it smells of papaya and sunshine. And yes, the fragrance lasts for a while on your skin. I would recommend this one!

Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh with arctic blueberry and patchouli smells quite masculine. I think they forgot the “for men” sticker! I don’t care for the fragrance, but my husband likes it.

Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive & Radox Scent Touch Feel Fresh are available as 200ml each. I paid £1 for the Feel Positive shower gel and £1.48 for the Feel Fresh Shower Gel.
