Hydrating Lip Balms

Carmex Lip Balm, Bomb Cosmetics Lip Locker, Bomb Cosmetics Bubblegum Pop and Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips

Recently I've found myself having extremely dry and chapped lips that just wouldn't budge.  It meant that I couldn't wear lipstick for a while and my stash has been truly neglected.  Now before I finally allowed myself to pick up the much raved about Nuxe Reve De Miel, I managed to resist as this hydrating trio of lip balms saviours showed up at my door just in time to sort out the problem.  Here's what I think of them.

Macadamia Flawless Cleansing Conditioner

Posted on April 11, 2014


I'm one of those lucky people who has to wash their hair every single day.  Over the years I've tried cutting down to washing it less regularly but I can't handle the feeling of greasy hair.  While I don't use straighteners or curlers regularly, my hair isn't so much heat damaged but I often feel it's being stripped of it's natural oils from overuse of sulphates in shampoo.  There's a concept known as Co-Washing which basically means cutting out shampoo completely and only using conditioner.  Now that Macadamia have came out with their Macadamia Flawless Cleansing Conditioner* you can now achieve the same effect from Co-Washing without the unbearable greasy hair stage.

Essie Nail Polish Collection

It's safe to say I have a bit of a nail polish addiction.  Some people collect coins, I collect nail polish!  Compared to my Nails Inc Collection (Part 1, Part 2) my Essie Collection is pretty modest with 9 of my most loved shades ranging from pastels to bright and bold shades so what better time than to bring them out just in time for Spring!

Lush Violet Nights Bath Oil

Lush Kitchen Violet Nights Bath Oil

Back when we attended the launch of Lush's new book Cosmetics To Go, we were lucky enough to go home with their Violet Nights Bath Oil which was specially made for the launch.  Now you know the drill: you get a limited edition product, fall in love with it and before you know it it's all gone, never to be purchased again.  Since the event I've been rationing my bottle but now there's hope as Lush are bringing it back as part of their Lush Kitchen range, hurray!  Now that the new Violet Nights Bath Oil* has just been released so I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek into what it's all about so you can get it before it's gone.
