Weird but wonderful!♥

Hi Beauties ☼

Recently I have struggled with my skin, in particular my legs, they have been so dry & when I try to shave they’re so itchy!! BUT. I have finally found a solution.. what is this saviour I hear you ask? Mens shaving cream. Yes, I know it’s for shaving anyway, but most people don’t usually think to use mens shaving cream (as there are brands that make it for women!). I thought well its great for the face so I’ll try it on my legs & it worked.

I received this Dove Men + Care Sample with an order I made, but my boyfriend doesn’t clean shave so I stole it 😉 it turns out, its been well loved! At first I didn’t think it was going to do the job, as it is quite heavily scented with quite a musky ‘male’ smell, my skin doesn’t usually agree with highly scented products.

It is pretty self explanatory in how you use it, it is a cream product you can use wet or dry, but I find it best wet as it creates a lather on the legs which leaves very very soft & smooth legs! YAAAAY!! 😀 I’ve also tried this on my underarms & other areas, it does wonders, it leaves the skin so silky smooth & soft, I just can’t get enough 🙂

After trying this male shaving cream I’m in the market for a good ladies shaving cream, let me which ones you guys like so I can try more! 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha

Last-Minute Holiday Haul!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

As you know I’m going on holiday on Monday (will probably be there by the time this is up), so last Wednesday I picked up the last-minute things I needed. So today I’m going to share with you what I picked up…

wpid-20140731_195753.jpgI had run out of my Batiste Dry Shampoo a while back (click here to check-out my product empties post) so I decided to re-buy it. They were half price in Superdrug so I got two different scents; I got the cherry & tropical ones. They smell heavenly.

I know they’ll come in handy on holiday as I know in the heat my hair will probably get greasy very quickly, so yay for Batiste!!

I needed a new shower gel so I went for this Original Source Lemon & Tea Tree one. I’ve had this in the past & it smells lovely. It was also reduced down to 99p so I couldn’t resist!

wpid-20140731_195849.jpgI’ve had my eye on Benefit’s Gimme Brow for a while now, but I just can’t justify spending the money, especially when I’m trying to save the pennies. So whilst in town I spotted Maybelline’s version, their Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara. So I decided to get it in medium brown (this is the middle shade!), I tried it as soon as I got home & so far I’m very impressed (will be writing a review soon!).

So Maybelline had a ‘buy one get the 2nd half price’ deal, so I had to buy a second item. I’ve been looking for a nice wearable purple lipstick & when I saw this one I know I just had to get it. This lipstick is part of Maybelline’s Colour Sensational range, I got it in the shade ‘906’ Hot Plum.

Here’s what the lipstick looks like on…

wpid-20140731_200044.jpgI wasn’t going to buy any more makeup products, that was until I spotted this. How beautiful is it? This is an MUA (Makeup Academy) Mosaic Blush in the shade English Rose. Can you believe this gorgeous product was only £2.50? I love MUA makuep, its brilliant for the price!!

Here are some swatches with & without flash…

With flash:

As you can see it just leave a pink-y sheen to your skin. I haven’t tried it on my face yet, but I’m sure it looks lovely 🙂

This wouldn’t be a decent haul without any random products. The first is a 2-pin travel adapter, as I’m going abroad I need an adapter to be able to charge my phone, you just plug your phone charger into it & then into the socket abroad. I got this from Boyes for £1.50.

The second random thing is hay-fever & allergy relief tablets, I have only just started to get hay-fever in the past few years! It’s really annoying so I’m taking these as a precaution!

The third is razors, I’ll probably only take one but I was in need of new razors. We don’t want man legs on holiday now, do we girlies?

wpid-20140731_210731.jpg

The last thing I bought were these travel empties (not empty now as I’ve filled them already!). We (me & beautifulbreakable) thought it’d be a good idea to decant shampoo, conditioner & mouthwash into smaller bottles in order to save on weight when packing. We have also decanted some moisturisers & cleansers into the little pots too. These are also handy as the packaging is clear, which is recommended when traveling, so customs can see whats inside.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this haul & maybe got a few ideas on what you can do to make traveling easier. If you’d like to know more about any of these products let me know in the comments below 🙂

Thank you for reading beauties, have a fabulous day! ☼

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

Summer Soft Skin: Top 5 Body Butters!♥

Hi Beauties. ☼

Sorry I haven’t posted this weekend, but it’s been a busy one. Although I’ve been off work, its been lovely weather so I’ve been making to most of it & soaking up the sun 🙂

As it’s summer now, I tend to get dry skin (well my body anyway), so I like to moisturise it every other day or so! I’m going to share with you my top 5 body butter picks from my least favourite to my absolute favourite…

wpid-20140721_184618.jpg

5. Vaseline – Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion. This is a very intense moisturiser, as the name would suggest. It retails at £4.99, which in my eyes is pretty cheap as this is a huge 400ml bottle. I tend to just use this when my legs are feeling particularly dry as it instantly makes them soft & smooth again, especially as it’s unfragranced I know it won’t irritate!! 🙂

I would give this moisturiser a 4/5, it does what it says on the bottle! I definitely recommend it for those with dry, sensitive skin or anyone who needs a good intense moisturiser! It’s only my least fave as it doesn’t have a scent & is pretty boring! (haha).

4. Avon Naturals – Cherry Blossom Moisturising Body Whip.I actually really enjoy this body moisturiser, it does moisturise well & smells absolutely gorgeous. It is a nice silky consistency & almost leaves your skin with a little glow. I don’t know how much this was as it was a present, but I doubt it’d be over £5.

I give this body whip a 4/5, just because it does the job but it’s not the best I’ve tried.

3. Garnier – Summerbody Moisturising Lotion Sun-kissed Look. I really like this moisturiser, it has a hint of tanning agent in it so after it develops & has sunk in fully it leaves a lovely glow to the skin. It really does moisturise the skin, I used this the other night & when I woke my skin felt as soft as a babies & had a lovely glow. To see a full review click here.

I’d give this moisturiser a 4.5/5. It is a great moisturiser/gradual tanner, it just leaves a bit of a tanning smell (albeit not half as bad as others!)

2. Soap & Glory – Sugar Crush.OH MY GOSH. I just can’t get over this smell, it smells amazing, mouthwateringly amazing (literally!!), if you haven’t smelt it, you NEEDto!! Anyway, this is actually a great moisturiser, it ticks all the boxes in that it moisturises the body, absorbs fast & smells heavenly. This is only a little sized one but you can get the big tub for £10.50.

I give this a 5/5 it’s everything I want in a moisturiser. You can’t go wrong with it 🙂

AND THE WINNER IS…

1. The Body Shop – Strawberry Body Butter. If you read my other post I mentioned this in, you’d know I LOOOOVE the smell of it. It reminds me of Calpol, yes the medicine, haha! It’s lush 🙂 As well as smelling fab, it does an amazing job at moisturising, it leaves my skin feeling gorgeous. It’s just a shame it’s £13 a tub, which is quite expensive for a moisturiser to me!

I definitely recommend this body butter & give it a 5/5, just go try it & see for yourself 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Let me know what your fave body moisturisers are, I’m always wanting to try more 🙂 xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
