Appelles Rosemary Body Bar Soap
Amelia – The Appelles Rosemary Body Soap is divine! The scent was so revitalising, I could feel the soap was more hydrating then most soaps I have used in the past and value for money – I will definitely purchase this product again and again.
Heather – You know that buzz you get when you wash your hands with the decadent soaps and creams in a luxury hotel or swish salon? The Appelles Rosemary Body Bar Soap brought the five-star experience into my apartment with a rich, heady fragrance and ingredients that left my hands soft and nourished.
Jess – I’m a sucker for anything a little bit natural, and for me this ticks all the boxes with scents of Rosemary, Eucalyptus and Lemon Myrtle. It leaves me smelling delicious and I also love using it after I’ve shaved my legs- it restores moisture and doesn’t irritate the skin. It’s so good I even caught my hubby using it! Even if you’re not a typical soap user I urge you to try this one. You wont be disappointed, and what’s even better is the price of it!
Foltene Eyelash Treatment
Amelia – I used the Foltene Eyelash Treatment on both my eyelashes and my eyebrows. While I didn’t see a huge difference in the natural growth promotion of my lashes I did love the fact that my lashes felt more hydrated and my brows set in place when applying a stroke of this product to my brow!
Heather – In the right temperature and humidity, my brows can resemble an overgrown forest, with the individual hairs taking a life of their own. Although I didn’t notice an increase in the growth of my brows after a fortnight of use, I used this treatment as a tamer, which left me with defined, smooth arches.
Jess – With eyebrows and eyelashes being bigger than ever this product is a definite winner- we all want a little bit more; thicker lashes, bushier brows to fit in with the seasons trend. Having tried my fair share of products that promise to make brows thicker and eyelashes stronger I’m pleased to say that I’ve had great results! This guy will be taking permanent residency in the bathroom.
Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy
Amelia – The Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand lotion is a very rich and creamy texture. The scent is nice, not too overpowering. I like the concept of a smaller travel sized product that you can keep in you handbag for those days when you’re on the go and need a little extra hand hydration.
Heather – This little beauty has become a fixture in my handbag, offering my dry hands some much needed moisture throughout the day. The smell is divine and it lasts for hours.
Jess – This hand cream really is as fancy as the name sounds. From someone who suffers from a bit of dermatitis and incredibly dry hands I am always on the lookout for new hand products. True to its word it nourishes and restores, and smells so dam good I like to wear it as a perfume! It works great lathered on thick to work its magic overnight, but it’s also light enough to use through the day without leaving a heavy oily film.
Evelyn Iona Lipgloss
Amelia – I love the Evelyn Iona Lipgloss! So hydrating and creamy without being sticky! The colour (Lise) was soft, feminine and flattering to a natural lip shine. The preservative-free natural ingredients was a real plus.
Heather –This lip gloss is a pretty pink shade – the perfect colour for spring! It’s formula is long-lasting without being sticky, but it wouldn’t be a product I’d use every day because of the colour. It’s more suited toward a feminine, girlie look.
Jess – I want one in every colour! Perfect for keeping it casual with a quick slick over bare lips, or over the top of a bright base colour for a heavier made up look. What makes it even better is that its Gluten free! It keeps its promise to hydrate your lips plus its preservative free and safe all round. This gloss is also long lasting- anything that manages to stay put after my countless cups of morning coffee is a winner in my books!
Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Quad
Amelia – The New York City Quad had great colours to replicate a smokey eye. I found that the shadows didn’t quite live up to the long lasting, high pigmented colour. The colour did seem to blend away after a few hours so I didn’t have the same depth if colour as I did when I applied it only a few hours earlier.
Heather – This palette is my new favourite. I received four gorgeous shades of warm golds, pinks and taupes, making it a staple, especially for the woman who prefers a subtle eyeshadow. The gold is ideal for bringing out the gold flecks in green, hazel or brown eyes and the pink can be used as a blush for a rosy glow.
Jess – Coming in a variety of shades, I tried The New York City eye shadow palette, which proves to be versatile to my day AND night needs. With a high pigmentation it means it lasts all day- I’ve even left it on through a workout and it hasn’t poured down my face! Which means its great for a simple all day look and even better to dance late into the night knowing that its not going anywhere. I especially love using theblack pigment for my daily eyeliner applied with a fine tipped brush. It stays on better than some of my liquid liners!
