Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing the face wash I’m using at the moment – Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash.

I think I’ve actually been using this face wash for almost 2 months now, so it’s definitely time for a review!

This face wash belongs to Boots Botanics’ All Bright collection, and it promises a brighter, more even and smoother complexion. It’s aimed at all skin types.

What else? This face wash contains hibiscus extract, which, according to Boots, is known for its brightening properties. However, the face wash also contain an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) which is proven to have exfoliating and brightening powers.

Since I’m using a number of very effective brightening products already, it’s not possible for me to say which product does what. But I’m satisfied that this face wash helps me maintain a bright and smooth complexion.

I also enjoy this face wash because it cleanses my skin gently, and it removes makeup and oil effectively and without irritating my skin.

I’m happy to continue to use this product, and I would recommend it if you’re looking for a face wash that contains AHA but that’s not to harsh on the skin. Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash is available as 150ml for £5.49. I paid £2.50 (clearance, old packaging).

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint & Stamping With Pueen 80

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats). This is a great polish. Whilst I’m not the biggest fan of light green nail colours, I like this one a lot because the colour really pops. I’m also happy with the quality of the polish. It dries reasonably quickly and it’s opaque in 2 coats. Thumbs up!

For the images I used Pueen‘s 80 plate (which is from Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I liked this mani a lot, and I will redo it once my nails have grown a bit longer.

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N, MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lip products – Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N and MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up.

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm is one of the better lip balms I’ve used over the past few years. I just finished it, but I’m happy to report that It made my lips feel hydrated. The raspberry flavour is 100% spot on! This lip balm is tinted; the colour of the lip balm matches the colour of the raspberry on the front. I enjoyed using this one!

Manhattan Lipjelly 59N is my favourite gloss-balm type of lip product at the moment. I picked it up as part of a nail polish + lip duo for £1 at Poundland, so I didn’t expect much from it. But guess what, this lip jelly is amazing! It tastes like… paradise (!), it hydrates my lips perfectly, and the sheer tint is super gorgeous. I love it!

MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up is another lip product I’m enjoying very much. This gloss is very nourishing, and it has a beautiful sheer brownish tint. I also love the classic lipstick flavour! The best bit – I paid 50p for this one (bargain bin).

I’m happy with the lip products I’m using at the moment. I do have a few more in my rota, and I will do another post about the other products soon!

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which lip products are you loving at the moment? Please feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! ☺️

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution.

Deep Action is Superdrug’s clear skin range. And now they’ve done 3 new skin care “solutions”. I’ve looked at all of them, but I opted for this one since it seems to be the one with the highest number of active ingredients.

In addition, this product promises to promote brighter and more even skin – so it was an obvious choice!

The instructions state… “Use three times a week, in the evening, on cleansed skin, using a cotton pad. Avoid the eye area and allow to fully absorb into skin.

I think the instructions could have been a lot better. But in a nutshell, you’re supposed to use this product like a toner – just steer clear of your eye area! Once you’ve gone over your face a couple dozen times (yes, that’s how I do it), just leave it alone for a little while (I give it 10 minutes) before you apply any other products to your face.

I’ve been using this product every other night for about 6 weeks now, and I’m blown away! I think this is the most effective brightening product I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievably powerful, and it’s even better than Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Glycolic Tonic. I agree with Superdrug’s claim that results are visible after 2 weeks. This stuff is incredible! I’ve used it on my face and on my body, and I’m happy to report this product took care of everything!

All in all, I’m glad I bought 2 bottles when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion. When Superdrug ran the same promotion again, I bought 4 more bottles!

Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution is vegan and certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo). It’s available as 30ml for £5.99.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple & Stamping With Finger Angel A024

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

For this simple mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 900 Wonder Purple (2 coats).

I love this polish, but I think this is (well, was) the last decent mani I managed to do with it. The bottle is about 85% empty, and the polish has thickened quite a bit. I hope I can use the leftover polish to make decals.

For the images I used my relatively new Finger Angel A024 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is the wonderful Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque

Hi there! Today’s post is about this face mask duo that I found at my local Savers drugstore – Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque. I think this face mask duo was 69p! A total steal! I’ve now given these masks a try, and here’s what I think…

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque promises to peel away impurities and dead skin cells with the help of antioxidant-rich blackcurrant and blueberry. I think this is a good face mask. It did make my skin softer, so I have no doubt that it removed dead skin cells.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque is a clay mask which promises to gives skin a deep and refreshing cleanse. Whilst I didn’t care for the bathroom cleanser fragrance, the mask did what it promised to do. It’s definitely worth a try if you have problem skin.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Food Blackcurrant & Blueberry Peel-Off Masque AND Lime & Lemon Purifying Masque is available as a face mask duo. I’ve also seen (and purchased) other varieties, so if you’re interested in trying out new face masks, you should swing by your local Savers drugstore.
