Cocoa Brown Lovely Legs Spray

lovely_legs

I’m a little late in writing about the Cocoa Brown event that took place last month but I’m one of those people who like to test products when I need to rather than testing for no reason and last weeks unexpected sunshine was the perfect opportunity to test Cocoa Brown’s latest product, lovely legs. New […]

Oilatum Products for Eczema

Oilatum Products for Eczema

This is Lily, my middle daughter. She’s 5 and since she was born she’s had quite delicate skin. In the winter around her lips and cheeks get sore, in summer she tends to get eczema on her chest and back. I find with her skin maintenance is definitely better than cure, at the moment I […]

Ojon Damage Reverse™Restorative Hair ...

Ojon Damage Reverse™Restorative Hair Treatment

You may have read my New Year’s Resolution last year was to get my hair in better shape. From years of bleaching, dying, straightening and curling, my hair really was looking dull, lifeless and frazzled. I always complained about my hair but unlike in my teenage years where I religiously treated my hair, I hardly […]

Ciaté Lushness

Ciaté Lushness

  Ok firstly the Ciaté Mini Mani Month, my wonderful fiance bought me one of these for Christmas and to say I was excited was such an understatement. I’m not a huge nail person but my goddess was I excited to open a new nailvarnish daily! And my girls not only loved opening it with me […]

Cocoa Brown One Hour Tan Mousse

Cocoa Brown One Hour Tan Mousse

As you may know, my company Bravura London is represented by Can PR Associates who also look after Cocoa Brown. The lovely Chloe sent me a bottle of the Cocoa Brown mousse about 5 weeks ago and I’m not reviewing out of loyalty, I really do like it and will be buying another bottle when this […]

Rimmel Match Perfection BB Cream SPF ...

Rimmel Match Perfection BB Cream SPF 25

This is another Rimmel product I really like and dare I say it, I actually like it more than the Dior BB cream, simply because this one has slightly lighter coverage and is more suited to oily skin types. And best of all, it costs only £6.99! I’m not sure I’d go as far as […]

Nivea In Shower Moisturiser

Nivea In Shower Moisturiser

This is one of those products that shouldn’t work but actually does. When I first saw this advertised it happened to be on sale in Tesco so I bought the mineral formulation for normal skin to test it out. I have very sensitive legs and I cannot stand any creams, moisturisers or gels on them, […]

Fake Bake 60 Minute Tan

Fake Bake 60 Minute Tan

I’ve been using fake bake for at least 12 years, I discovered it when fake tans were just starting to become really popular in the UK and St Tropez dominated the market, back then I had to order them in from America. Tans have come a long way since then, especially as you can now […]

Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish

Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish

I have recently re-discovered a love for Rimmel London, I’d avoided the brand for years, I’ve been trying to figure out the reason why and I think it’s because it takes me back to the pale biscuit foundation ( which was actually darker than my naturally super pale skin) and coffee and heather shimmer lipstick […]

Ombre Nail Wraps H&M

Ombre Nail Wraps H&M

It was a really gloomy weekend so my girlies and I decided to have a pamper day. I bought these Nail Wraps from H&M a few months ago while pregnant, they were meant for my toes but it was only when I went to apply them last weekend that I realised the largest size wasn’t big […]
