*Jergens Original Beauty Lotion Review

Hello Lovelies...

Coming into the cold winter months a lot of us will probably start to find our skin becoming quite dry and in dire need of some moisture.

I go through phases with body lotions where I become let's say...a little lazy! I just can't be bothered especially in winter when all I want to do after I've got out the shower is jump into my warm cozy pj's and curl up on the sofa.

So what really entices me into using body lotions is the scent. If it smells yummy I want to smell like it! And very few body lotions I have tried beat *Jergens Original Beauty Lotion. It has a cherry almond scent, think cherry bakewells!

The texture is the best I've found, lightweight and absorbs right into the skin quickly so you don't have to sit around waiting for ages. It hydrates without leaving a greasy film behind on your skin.

Jergens Original Beauty Lotion - £3.49/200ml and is available from Boots.

Has anyone tried this before?

Bourjois 1 Second Nail Polish Remover Review

Hello Lovelies

Hope everyone is well! Now isn't the title of this post a bit of a mouthful ha. But that is exactly what this post is.

I know I am a bit late on the beauty bloggersphere to be reviewing this product as everyone and their mothers have already done so. But I do love this product and have lived by it the past couple of months so I thought what the heck Im going to review it.

It is 100% the best nail polish remover I have ever used (it even is the best I've used to remove glitter polishes which we all know are a pain in the butt to remove.) I know when this was first released it was major hard to get hold of. Everytime I went to buy it, it was sold out everywhere! Luckily I got my hands on a bottle and I am so glad I did as I haven't stopped using it since.

Now why is it so amazing??
Basically its a pot with a sponge inside soaked in polish remover. The sponge has a hole in the middle where you insert your finger and twist (I tried so hard to not make this sound dirty but it's impossible!!)

The only thing I would change about this product is maybe the name? It obviously takes longer then 1 minute to remove. I would say 2-3 twists and the polish comes right off. Glitter polishes take a few more twists.

The scent is Red Fruit and Vanilla. Now don't make the same mistake I did and sniff the pot because I almost threw up. Inside the pot smells of straight up polish remover/alcohol. After you've removed the polish and your fingers have dried that's when the scent kicks in.

This costs a little bit more then your standard polish remover but is so worth it.

Have you tried this? Did you like or dislike it?

DIY Ombre Nails

Evening Lovelies...

Tonight's quick post is just to show you something I've had a quick dab hand at... 
Ombre Nails.
I have yet to attempt these on my own nails but my mum has happily let me practice on her. I did a blue ombre look a couple of weeks ago and decided as Halloween is fast approaching I thought I would attempt a 'candy corn' inspired design.

I know its a little messy but this is only my second attempt at ombre nails. I use the sponge method. The three polishes I used were  OPI 'Need Sunglasses?', Nails Inc 'Candy Orange' and OPI 'OPI On Collins Avenue'.

And heres a close up..

I hope that I will get better with practice and will probably post more designs when I try them.

What do you think of the ombre nail craze? Do you like it? Have you tried it?

OPI Skyfall Collection

Hello lovelies...

Today's post is all about the new OPI James Bond Skyfall Collection. Now as much as I would love to tell you all I own every colour from this collection but I sadly do not.

We have a OPI stand at my work and have had this collection in for a few days so I've had the pleasure of drooling over some of these colours in real life. I don't know about you guys but I have a little bit of a hatred for nail polishes that don't have names. Instead they just have a number or is just called 'Blue' or 'Pink'. So I love that these polishes are named after Bond films. 

1. GoldenEye
2. Casino Royale
3. Moonraker
4. The Spy Who Loved Me
5. Live and Let Die
6. On Her Majestys Secret Service
7. Skyfall
8. Tomorrow Never Dies
9. Die Another Day
10. The World Is Not Enough
11. You Only Live Twice
12. The Living Daylights
13. The Man With The Golden Gun 18k Gold Top Coat
14. Skyfall Minis

So what colour is your favourite?? Have you purchased any yet? I can't decide which ones I want!!

Gucci Première Review

Hello Lovelies...

Today I am going to review the newest collection to the Gucci fragrance range: Gucci Première. I purchased this fragrance a couple of months back in July and have been in love with it ever since.

“Première will be the female counterpart to the male Gucci by Gucci,” 
- Luigi Feola, Vice President of Procter & Gamble Prestige.

Referring to this quote is why I guess the design of the bottle is very similar to Gucci by Gucci for men just replaced with a shiny gold finish. It's not quite so opaque that you can't see the liquid inside yet annoyingly still leaves fingerprints on the bottle. I love that even with it just sitting on my perfume tray I feel all elegant and posh ha.

It is made up of the following:-
Top Notes: Bergamot & Orange Blossom
Heart Notes: White Flowers & Musk
Base Notes: Leather & Wood

This isn't a usual fragrance for me as I prefer quite light & fruity fragrances such as Juicy Couture & Boss Orange. But it definitely works as a night time/going out fragrance of mine and that's exactly when I've been wearing it.

The face of the fragrance is the ever so beautiful Blake Lively. Just like many advertisements for fragrances at the moment she stars as a glamorous girl in a couture dress staring out of a window of a building which resembles the bottle of the fragrance with a cracking soundtrack behind her.

It is available in 30ml (£44.50), 50ml (£63.50) and 75ml (£76.50). You can purchase it from The Fragrance Shop (link). I know it's quite a pricey fragrance but it is well worth it. Plus it does come in handy that I work in Duty Free at Gatwick so I get it tax free!

Have you tried this fragrance? What are your thoughts on it?

*Jergens Package...

Hello Lovelies....

Sorry I haven't posted in a while but I am back this evening with a post about Jergen's. I was contacted by the lovely Marina and was asked if I would like to try the *Jergens Original Scent moisturiser. I have tried other Jergen products and have loved them so I was too excited to pass this opportunity up. So to my delight I returned home today to discover this little beaut of a package.

Inside was the cutest little jewels. First obviously was a bottle of Jergens Original Beauty Lotion which is cherry almond scented which relates to all the other items in the box. And OMG I've ever smelt anything as nice as this lotion. I can't wait to try this and review it so look out for that post in the future.

Alongside the lotion was all things cherry and almond related. There were some Cherry Bakewells although mine had been through the wars with the postman but alas still edible!! 3 packets of Cherry Drops which just so happen to be my favourite sweet. And in a cute little bag was sugared almonds!

Also I wanted to make my followers aware that Jergens Facebook are running a competition whereby a lucky Jergens fan can win a designer handbag, a designer scarf, a pair of designer shoes and the complete range of Jergens moisturisers including the Original Beauty Lotion. I've already entered and so should you to be in for the chance to win!! Just click below to go straight to their facebook page.

Hope you have enjoyed this post and again look out for the review post of this product.
