Firstly, I just want to apologise in advance for either not posting much this weekend, or having really rubbish photos, I’m back in Bournemouth until Sunday night, and I thought I had enough saved posts to get me through, but apparently not! So now I’m having to work with my sisters camera (which has loads of really strange settings and I have no idea how to work it), a lack of good lighting to photograph, and I don’t really have many products and such with me!
So I was looking through my bag earlier to find something to write about, and realised that a hell of a lot of the stuff in my bag was, well, pink. This struck me as really bizarre, since I’m not really a pink girl, but it seems a lot of my go to products at the moment are pink. So I thought I’d give you a little walk through of my new found girliness.
Since I’m back home, I’ve finally been able to have a bath! I used to live for my bubble baths before I moved, but now I only get to have one when I come home for the weekend (before this weekend, I hadn’t had a bubble bath since Christmas! Oh the horror!) so the first thing I chucked in my bag was my trusty bottle of Calm One, Calm All. This is my absolute favourite bubble bath, it smells good, it makes your skin feel super soft, and one little splash will give you bubbles up to your eyebrows! I used to love Sanctuary bath products, but I’d always leave the bath with a rash all over my legs, not attractive!
Another Soap and Glory product, my Hand Food has taken up residence in my handbag recently. I’m getting through hand cream at the moment like nobody’s business, and I just love the instant relief I get from this product! I never get bored of that signature Soap and Glory scent either, and I can’t say the same for my Body Shop almond cream that was booted out of the bag for this! It even got the seal of approval off my Dad, who has been pinching it for his super dry elbows.
The Lee Stafford hair treatment is a recent purchase. I’ll do a full review of this when I’ve used it a bit more, since I know a lot of people have been interested in it. But for now, all I can tell you is it claims to stimulate hair growth by improving follicle health, improving tensile strength, whilst soothing and reducing scalp irritation. You just slap it on for five minutes in between shampoo and conditioner to let it soak in, and Bob’s your uncle. I’ve only used it twice, and my hair has definitely felt softer and my scalp much more healthy, but you’ll have to wait to find out if it works to stimulate hair growth! I do however feel this product is pretty pricey, so if I don’t get results from the first pot, I’m unlikely to repurchase!
Onto deodorant! Bit of a weird one this but I’ve actually wanted to mention this for a while. I’ve always been a spray deodorant sort of girl, roll-ons always kinda weirded me out a bit. I bought this Sure Bright from their fragrance collection last summer for my holiday bag, since it’s small, and unlike spray minis, would last more than two days, and I haven’t bought any other deodorant since. The scent isn’t particularly strong, I think it smells a little like ‘floral’ washing powder, but it’s not overbearing. It lasts all day easily, and the thing I love most, no white marks! Brilliant!
As far as lip products go, my trusty Soap and Glory Smooch operator goes everywhere with me, I think I’ve mentioned it before so I’ll skip over it! I also have my new purchase from the Kate Moss for Rimmel London lipstick collection, shade 8. It’s the perfect ‘your lips but better’ lipstick, review coming soon! I also have my Smashbox Electric Pink Matte lipstick, which I reviewed here. My trusty Revlon Just Bitten lip stain in Lovesick lives in my handbag, for an emergency bold lip. Still a bit confused as to the minty smell though. So I also have my new gloss from Victoria’s Secret, which smells and tastes overwhelmingly of strawberry. Mmmmmmmm.
Another recent purchase is the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I’ve been after this brush for forever, and finally took the plunge last week, using my Boots points! I absolutely love it, it gives a flawlessly buffed complexion every time!
I also chucked my new Pink Sharpie in, it felt rude not to mention it seeing as I am totally obsessed with it! You can buy a pack of two in Tesco for three pounds something, and they’re so cute! So now everything comes with pink Sharpie doodles on…
And lastly, I wanted to mention the makeup bag I used for this weekend. I got this as part of a gift set from a friend, and I love it! It’s the perfect size to carry your daily face, and also a couple of creams. I love the picture, and the fabric is super smooth! So cute!
So there we go, some uncharacteristic girliness from my camp! Writing this I’ve also realised I’m using a pink phone case. What is this madness?!
