Clean + Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Scrub

Today I'm going to be reviewing a product that I use very regularly (twice a day to be precise). Now this product I really, really like. When I use it in the morning, it really refreshes me and gets me ready for the day. I really love the scent of this product as well. It sloughs off dead skin and makes my skin feel very refreshed as well. It also makes my skin look bright and ready for the day ahead!

Soap + Glory Clean, Girls Body Wash

I absolutely love Soap + Glory products so today I am reviewing the Clean, Girls Body Wash.

The first thing I liked about this product was the pump dispenser. I absolutely love pump dispensers as I feel they are so much easier to use in the bath/shower. I also love how big the bottle is - £6 for 500ml! I have used this body wash before and it lasted me such a long time as the bottle was so big.

Packaging aside, this product is also amazing on the inside. The scent of Soap + Glory products are always wonderful and Clean, Girls is no exception. The scent is described as 'beautiful notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk.' Personally I absolutely adore this scent for a body wash (it smells clean and luxurious) although it's probably not a scent I would like as a perfume.

Clean, Girls lathers up very well and is great for use when shaving. The body wash is so luxuriously creamy that it will leave your legs moisturised as well.

Overall, I absolutely adore this product and most of the Soap + Glory. If you get a chance, definitely pick this up if you haven't already next time you're in Boots.

Dove Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Express Treatment Conditioner

Hey girlies! I'm so sorry it's been a while since I last posted on here but I'm hoping to start making posts more regularly. Today I will be reviewing Dove's new Hair Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Express Treatment Conditioner. 

I actually received this for free as a sample from Dove and so far I am extremely pleased with it. Due to the nourishing oils inside the product, it makes my hair feel ridiculously soft and silky after being left in my hair for just a minute. This conditions my hair really well and is one of the best conditioners I have tried in a long time. I will be repurchasing this, hopefully along with some other products from the range. :-)

If you received this sample, please let me know what you thought of it as I would love to know!

Victoria's Secret Strawberries + Champagne Fragrance Mist

Today I'm going to be doing my first ever fragrance review. I'm really excited to write this one as I am sharing my thoughts on my favourite ever fragrance - Victoria's Secret Strawberries + Champagne.

Unfortunately this perfume isn't available in the UK but I managed to get it from Bath and Body Shop for just £10.99. 

I feel that this fragrance stays true to its name and really does smell like strawberries and champagne - predominantly like strawberries. This is as the name suggests, only a fragrance mist so I wasn't expecting it to last as long as other perfumes in my collection but I was shocked to find it's actually one of the longest lasting fragrances I own!

I also find this fragrance mist great for when it's hot and I need a quick pick-me-up throughout the day. The only thing I could fault with this is the large bottle size which might be hard to fit into certain handbags although this is not a problem for me personally.

Overall, I love this perfume and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new summer scent!

Soap + Glory Glad Hair Day Ultra-Shine Daily Shampoo

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while but I thought I would write a new post whilst I'm waiting for a new video to upload. Today I'm going to be reviewing the Soap + Glory Glad Hair Day Shampoo. 

I first tried tried this last year after I got it for Christmas in 2010 and I did not like it all. I had scalp psoriasis at the time and thought it was due to this product as it seemed to disappear as soon as I had finished this product. It was only when I got it in a gift set again this Christmas that I discovered this product wasn't behind my scalp psoriasis.

The first thing I noticed about this shampoo was the scent. To me it smells very fruity and girly and unlike anything I've ever smelled before. The shampoo itself is also great and cleansing your hair very well and is good for all hair types as it removes oil from your hair yet does not strip it too much. The container shown above also lasts for ages for about £5 so this is a great value product! This is now my third bottle of Glad Hair Day Shampoo and I plan to buy more and try the accompanying conditioner.

I would strongly recommend this as well as any other Soap + Glory product you can get your hands on.

NOTD: Diamonds + Pearls

Hey everyone! Today I am going to do my very first NOTD. I've already done several of these on Twitter but now I'm going to go more in-depth with a blogpost. The colour I painted my nails with most recently was Myface Cosmetics' Diamonds + Pearls Lil' Bling.

This was the first of Myface Cosmetics' Lil' Blings I had tried and I got it in a set from Boots on a GWP. This colour is gorgeous and I feel like the name truly captures how it looks in person 'Diamonds + Pearls' as it is a silver diamond-like colour with a pearly finish. This would've looked great with one coat but I went for two just to be safe. The only think I would say I dislike about these polishes is that two days after the mani (using base and top coat) they appear to have chipped. Other than that, these are great polishes and I would recommend them.
