Finally! The Burberry Blushing Virgin………No Longer!

•December 17, 2014 • 4 Comments

Hi Everyone,

I’m so excited to announce that there is a brand new Burberry Beauty Counter in Debenhams, Liverpool. The first one in the North West, UK i might add.

Burberry Lip Cover Lipstick with Runners Magazine

No longer do i have to lustfully long for all of the gorgeous beauty products online, i can finally give them a swatch in person; and, yes i did. I think i swatched every single blusher and lipstick and eyeliner on the counter and the SA was so lovely too.

My first ever purchase from Burberry, (of which there will be many) has to be, erm a lipstick. I just can’t help myself !! I am also planning to go back and buy two more as well.

Burberry Lip Cover Case Design

I know! Every single beauty product by Burberry has been covered a thousand times over by beauty bloggers everywhere; however, this is my slant on the product and i’m very particular about my lipsticks and their packaging.

Initial Thoughts

I bought the Burberry Lip Cover Soft Satin Lipstick No 9, Blush.

The outer box is a very natural hessian designed box with the classic trench coat colour, Burberry are famous for. It immediately lets you know that these shades are going to be classic, earthy and natural.Burberry Lip Cover Packaging

If you’re looking for wild, outlandish colours then Burberry will never be the brand for you. Instead, they give you classy, understated, quality beauty products.

Burberry Lip Cover No 9 Blush

Inside, is the beautiful shiny metallic square casing with the classic check design. As it is a lip cover lipstick, it is a shiny casing. The casing has a fairly weightly feel to it but i’m guessing that it is the magnet causing that. This leads me onto the the closing. Yes the magnet keeps the casing closed and the lipstick protected.

Burberry i believe, where the first to introduce this style of packaging and both NARS and MAC have adopted it into their packaging recently with new releases. I still believe Burberry do their packaging with a bit more finesse.

The lipstick is a healthy 3.5g in size for a reasonably priced (considering it is high end) £23.00.

Burberry Lip Cover No 9 Blush without Flash

The lipstick has a similar sweet smell that Diorific lipsticks have, like sherbet and the imprint on the lipstick is the check design.

The Lipstick.

I loved the shade as soon as i swatched it. Tea Rose was also beautiful and Blueberry in the Lip Mist formula, is another one i’m interested in.

Burberry Lip Cover Blush no 9 design

Blush is a lovely deep rose pink shade.

Burberry Lip Cover No 9 with flashIt has great staying power with initial moisturization to the lips, which reminds me of the Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks. I only had to re-apply once more over an eight hour period; however, after a couple of hours, my lips did start to feel slightly dry.It’s not too bad but if you like your lips to feel soft and plump then you maybe be better trying out the lip mists instead.

Pictured left, you can see the ultra fine flecks of gold shimmer that give great shine to the lips without feeling them at all.

Overall Verdict.

The Burberry Lip Cover lipsticks are long lasting, highly pigmented with high shine and are beautifully packaged.

They offer good value costing £3.00 less on average, than other high end brands; and yet, offer the same quality. You may want to try out the lip mists if lip moisturization is your main concern; however, I love the longevity and natural classy finish to these lipsticks.

Burberry Lip Cover No 9 Blush and Comparisons

Above, i struggled to find comparisons among my 60+ lipsticks. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet, 34 La Raffineé was the closest. Probably a good thing. 

Have you tried out Burberry lipsticks yet? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

Oh yes, in case you were wondering what the running magazine was doing there. It’s my next great love after beauty.

 

November Favourites…………….Taking off That Winter Edge!

•December 7, 2014 • 2 Comments

Hi Everyone,

This is going to be my final monthly favourites for 2014. My favourites from November- January usually are always centred around skin care products because i have very dry skin during the winter months and flaky lips, so these products are pretty much in constant use until February.

I’m also featuring a couple of new products which i have tried out this month and i’m loving too.

November Favourites 2014

1. Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals.

I was given a deluxe sized sample of this by the Nuxe rep while i was in work. It is divine and i have re-purchased the full size now i’ve tried it out for a few days.

It contains a lovely rose fragrance, which i was a little afraid i was going to have an allergic reaction too. Not to worry, it didn’t happen and left my skin feeling lovely and clean without any tightness at all. It is available here, http://www.marksandspencer.com/l/beauty/nuxe.

There is also a 400ml version available at the moment for the price of the 200ml at the official Nuxe site here. https://uk.nuxe.com/

2. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum.

I still love this great night repair serum. Softens fine lines and leaves skin lovely when i wake up in the morning. I’ve been using this for a few years now and even though i have tried out other versions by various brands, i still end up returning to this one. It’s a great product for the winter months, especially and if you’re starting to develop fine lines.

3. The Body Shop Hand Cream, Coconut.

I often use Body Shop products and i like the hand creams. They do lovely fragrances. I need hand cream in the winter everyday.

4. H20+ Dual Action Eye Makeup Remover.

I am coming to the end of my Lancôme Bi-facil eye makeup remover and a few of my friends mentioned this one was as good as it and it was more cost effective. I wasn’t convinced at first but it was on offer so, i decided to give it a whirl.

Smiley faceHappy face removed with eye makeup remover

(The eye pencil test. H20+ Eye makeup remover on the pad, pressed onto the happy face on the back of my hand for 15-20 seconds)  

It is lovely and removes eye makeup effortlessly. The H20 is also an oil in water mix using sea minerals and vitamins to keep skin plumped and soft and condition eye lashes. It removed my makeup as good as the Lancôme and makes a good alternative. If you haven’t tried this out, you can buy it here  http://www.marksandspencer.com/h2o-plus-aqualibrium-dual-action-eye-makeup-remover-120ml/p/p22170880

5. Dior Lip Maximizer Collagen Activ , 005 Fresh Pink.

Diorshow Lip MaximizerI absolutely love this and the Dior Lash Maximizer too. Just beautiful products that work. No it won’t keep the lips plumped the whole day but it does make them feel plumped and moisturized for a couple of hours with minimum tingling. The tingling only lasts 15-20 mins on my lips and it is worth every penny. It’s lasted 6 months with using it almost every single day.Dior Addict Lip Maximizer just swatched

6. Chanel Sublimage Le Yeux, Eye Cream.

Chanel Sublimage Le Creme YeuxI got this free with purchase. It is a deluxe sample worth £42.00 on its own. I have been using it for more than 4 weeks now and i’m really liking how it moisturizes my eyes.

I have very dry skin in the winter and i can’t find many eye creams that moisturize without making my eyes puffy. This one does the job with no puffiness whatsoever. It has also softened off the fine lines and crows feet. It isn’t so great with dark circles so i use another one of a day to combat that. I would re- purchase this one because only the tiniest amount is required to do the job, it is a little expensive at £125.00, although it is going to last a good 7-8 months.

7. Vaseline Lip Therapy Petroleum Jelly.Vaseline 2

Great and a no brainer in the winter time. It stops my lips flaking in the colder months and is in use every day at the moment.

There you have it. What are your favourites for November? Take care and i will see you soon. ;-)

Dior Rouge Baume Lipstick, 660 Coquette…………Fun and Flirty Lips.

•December 2, 2014 • 6 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Yes, I’ve only gone and bought another lipstick! I’ll be honest though; i wasn’t going to bother with the new Rouge Dior Baume lipsticks. HONESTLY!! I just saw them as being carbon copies of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines.

Rouge Dior Baume 660 Coquette

I thought it was quite interesting that Peter Phillips had defected to the other side and hey, Voila! Here are some very familiar lipsticks.

Well i don’t believe that is too far off the truth; although, i do happen to really like these new lipsticks.

Initial Thoughts.

I love the packaging. It isn’t square, rather more rectangular in shape. Dark blue casing with a silver centre, very classy and similar to the Dior Rouge lipsticks.

Dior Baume 660 Coquette

There is a 0.2gm more product (3.2gm). The Chanel version, 3 gm. It probably only translates into one more swipe of the bullet across the lips but they are also £1.00 more than the Chanel equivalent. The CD initials are imprinted into the top of the lipstick, which disappears on first use.

Dior Rouge Baume Lipstick Coquette 660

The colour appears highly pigmented in the bullet and it is on the lips too. There is also a lovely selection of colours for all skin tones.

Dior rouge baume lipsticks contain crystal oil!! Which apparently helps plumps the lips. I didn’t feel that it plumped mine; however, the lipstick feels lovely and moisturizing on the lips and doesn’t dry out at all. Great for the winter.

660 Coquette.

I tried out a few colours on the back of my hand and decided on this one. I wanted them all, by the way.

Dior Rouge Baume Lipstick 660 Coquette

It is a gorgeous plum/mauve pink shade that translates into a high shine moisturizing lipstick on the lips. The colour is highly pigmented and stays put for a good couple of hours, providing you don’t eat anything.

DIOR Rouge Dior Baume 660 Coquette SwatchDior Baume 660 Coquette Swatch

This is very like the Chanel Intense Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks I didn’t really notice any difference in the slip or intensity in either. It is much more pigmented than the original Rouge Coco Shines though. The original Rouge Coco Shines are more of a true lip balm, in that they are lighter in shade and impart a very watery feel to the lips.

Chanel and Dior Comparisons of Rouge Baume and Coco Shine with flash

(Above left; original formula Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks, centre; Dior Rouge Baume Lipsticks and right is the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Intense formula lipsticks).

Overall Verdict.

If you’re like me; a lipstickoholic! Then you will absolutely love these. I do!

If you already own a few of the Chanel Rouge Coco shine Intense lipsticks, You don’t really need this. But hey! Since when did we ever buy beauty items because we NEED them? Be honest now !!!

The Rouge Dior Baume Lipsticks do give a lot of moisture, shine and colour intensity to the lips; but, do expect to re-apply a few times during the day.

Great winter lipstick for day wear and i will be buying more.

They are a lovely addition to the Dior lipstick range and to my handbag.

Sucked in once again!

Have you tried them out yet? What are your thoughts and favourite shades? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

Chanel & Dior Holiday Makeup Haul……….Daring Golden Twinkles.

•November 23, 2014 • 8 Comments

Hi Everyone,

I have already started buying some products from the high end holiday collections.

TBH; i’m not over-awed by many of the holiday collections this year. I usually cannot wait until November to see what’s on offer; however, this year just hasn’t really excited me.

I did buy what i consider to be the best from both Dior and Chanel this year. I also have some goodies bought for me; however, Santa say’s i can’t have them until Christmas Day.

Chanel Holiday Haul 2014

CHANEL

The Chanel Holiday Collection for 2014 is called Plumes de Preciseues and the star of the show is the illuminating face powder Camélia De Plumes, it is beautiful and so is the waterproof stylo eyeliner 987, Or Blanc.

With regards to the rest of the collection, i thought some of the products lacked pigmentation and imagination. Chanel could have used this opportunity to release more unique shades for the holiday season being that it is always limited edition anyway. On the plus side though, here are the products i did purchase from the collection.

Chanel Camélia De Plumes Highlighting Face Powder.

Chanel Camelia De Plumes Powder

This is a stunning highlighter with both gold and silver ultra fine shimmers. Gorgeous on top of the cheekbones and stays put once applied. It is a really unique shade and is limited edition so don’t miss out. I also don’t need to say that this is very buttery and creamy in texutre too. Star of the whole collection; this is going to make a great Christmas gift.

Chanel Camelia de Plumes close up(1)

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner, 987 Or Blanc.

I am never disappointed with these pencils and this is no exception. It is a beautiful creamy white gold, ideal for the lower waterline and tight line of the eye. It brightens up the eye in a natural way as only Chanel does, rather than the harsher pale shades that look very unnatural from other brands.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Or Blanc

Chanel has made these pencils softer to apply which is great; however, the down side to that is that it does take a few seconds longer to dry down. Once it is dry though, it stays put all day. I have bought two of these as they are LE. (Swatches below right are of the stylo and highlighting powder).

Chanel Stylo Yeux Or Blanc Close UpChanel Stylo Yeux 987 Or Blanc and Dior Fusion Mono 621 Mirror Swatches

DIOR.

I really do like  the Dior holiday collection, ‘Golden Shock’ for 2014.

The highlighting face powders are nice in their golden collectible compacts; the pink one is nicer than the gold. The gold leaf effect nail top coat is stunning and i have had the 5 coleur eye palette; Golden Reflections, bought for Christmas for me. I can’t wait to try that out.

Dior Holiday Collection 2014

I also do really like the Diorific lipsticks and the Dior elfs have had a little bit of fun this year and brought out a dual sided day to night lipstick. Yes, it’s gimmicky but Dior understand that its the fun party season and their holiday collections are also limited edition too.

Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow, 621 Mirror.

Diorshow Fusion Mono Eyeshadow 621 Mirror close upDior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow 621 Mirror

As soon as i saw this, i had to have it. It is gorgeous. A pale golden shade with micro glitter. It just twinkles all over the place. It makes an ideal base for other colours, can be used all over the eyelid for a simple makeup look. I have worn this for my Dior FOTD coming soon. It can be used as a highlighter for the cheekbones, brow bone and top of lip too. Very versatile in fact.

Dior Fusion Mono BaseDior Fusion Mono and Chanel Illusion DOmbre comparisons(1)It’s very similar to Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadow, Convoitise,  just being a slightly paler beige gold, Chanel Apparence is more of a burnished gold.

Dior Fusion Mono 621 Mirror and Dior Rouge Baume 660 Coquette swatches

I bought it because my Chanel one is starting to dry out now. I’m not too sure if this is LE or not.

Diorific Golden Shock Matte and Metalic Lipstick, 005 Daring Shock.

Diorific Golden Shock Lipstick 005 Daring Shock

As i just mentioned, these are a great addition to the Christmas collection. Fun and playful.  These lipsticks have received mixed reviews but i think they are the nicest ones released from all the holiday collections this year. Diorific lipsticks do have real staying power too.

Diorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock metallic sideDiorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock on lips frosted side

There is a number of ways to wear this lipstick and it comes in 6 shades. 2 quite neutral, 2 mid-toned and 2 more evening wear. Something for everyone.

Diorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock Matte SideDiorific Golden Shock 005 Daring Shock on lips darker matte side

I opted for 005 Daring Shock. A lovely raspberry pink/red with frosted paler pink. Simply gorgeous and the matte side stays put for hours. It still had a great deal of longevity with the frosted side over the top and i do prefer some sheen to the lip.

There you have it. What if anything have you bought from the holiday collections this year?

Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

 

 

Christmas Gift Ideas………….Gift Sets.

•November 20, 2014 • 2 Comments

Hi Everyone,

Yes it’s almost here and no better time than to share a couple of my ideas for Christmas gifts.

This is my favourite time of the year for beauty products. The beauty gift sets are always lovely and offer great value because you can try out all the products without having to fork out hefty prices for full sized versions.

liberty-christmas-calendar-2

The beauty companies this year who are offering fab Christmas gift sets for me are L’Occitane, Ren and Nuxe as well as makeup offerings from Lancôme and Dior.

L’Occitane Almond Discovery Set.

A great introduction into L’Occitane products. The almond set contains some of my favourites by L’Occitane. Buying the full sized version of everything can become a little expensive. These gift sets offer generous deluxe sized samples and a bag for a very reasonable price and they come in other fragrances too.

Loccitane Almond Discovery Pack

A lovely present for anyone who loves luxury bath products. This one contains bag, Almond supple oil, hand cream, soap, shower oil and body milk. All for £20.00. Available from http://www.marksandspencer.com/almond-discovery-collection/p/p22332705

Lancome Definicils Mascara Set.

I have mentioned this before in a post a couple of years ago and once again, i have purchased this every year since i don’t know when. Why? Well, it offers a full sized mascara, a deluxe sample of the Bi-Facil eye makeup remover and a mini black kohl pencil all for the price of the mascara alone.

Lancome Definicils Gift Set for Christmas

Great value and Lancôme just offer some of the best mascaras out there. A no brainer really. It makes the ideal Christmas gift and they do various Hypnose mascaras in these sets also. Available here. http://www.boots.com/en/Lancome-Definicils-Mascara-Gift-Set_1498175/

The Beauty Advent Calendar. 

This is not strictly a gift set as such; however, i thought it was worth mentioning because they are gathering a lot of momentum with each passing year.

This year sees the Boots No 7; £35.00 and Body Shop calendars if you are looking for reasonable priced option at £50. I love the L’Occitane one for £45.00 though.  (See below)

no7-advent-calender-newthe-body-shop-beauty-advent-calendar-2014L'Occitane Beauty Advent Calendar

Liberty of London are offering a grand affair with some luxurious brands and items; however, expect to pay a handsome £149.00 for it. (See Above for picture).

My personal favourite is the Selfridges Advent Calendar. It offers, Victor & Rolf, Lancome and YSL to name but a few and it costs only £85.00. Great value in my opinion for high end beauty items.

Anyway that’s my couple of ideas for beautiful gift sets for 2014 and there are many out there. What are yours? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

FOTD………..A Romantic New Moon!

•November 16, 2014 • 3 Comments

Hi Everyone,

FOTD number two. This time I wanted the focus to be on my lips with a subtle natural toned shimmery eye. This is one of my favourite day time looks.

FOTD A Romantic New MoonFACE.

1. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm.

This is a deluxe sample that i received a while ago. I am using it up but tbh, i don’t really think its the best primer I’ve ever used. It isn’t bad either. It’s just nothing special, on my skin that is.

2. Vitalumiere Aqua Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup. 20 Beige.

I just love this so much. I hadn’t been using it for a while because i had still had other foundations to use up and i am also using YSL Fusion Ink Foundation as well. This is so ideal for winter. It keeps the skin nice and soft and offers great coverage as well as making my skin look great. A definite re-purchase.

3.  YSL Touch Éclat Radiant Touch Highlighter. No 1.

Fabulous product!

FOTD 2

4. NARS Bronzing Powder, Laguna.

Using this one up at the moment as it’s almost done. I do like the natural healthy glow it gives my skin; however, it’s not a patch on the Guerlain 4 Season’s bronzing powder i also own and i will not re-purchase. It’s a nice product for it’s price point though.

5. Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush, 68 Rose Écrin.

If i was told i was going on a Desert Island and i was only allowed one blusher to take from my whole collection, this would be it. It’s such a flattering shade and ideal for any time of the year. A dusky rose shade with pink micro shimmer.

6. Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush, 73 Star Dust.

A limited edition shade which is wonderful for a highlighter. When this one was reviewed on it’s release, it was slated for having no pigmentation; however, the clue was always in it’s name. It is a lovely; no beautiful in fact, pale pink with multi-coloured glitter. Perfect for the holiday season and i’m so glad i bought it.

DSC00362

EYES.

1. Dior Extase Mascara, Noir.

Curls and thickens my lashes. I have reviewed this so many times now. A staple for me.

2. Lancôme Definicils Mascara, Noir.

Lengthens  and separates. I use this as my second coat over Dior Extase for amazing eyelashes.

3. MAC Penultimate Brow Marker Pen.

A no brainer. Quick, precise and stays put all day. Great for medium/dark brows.

4. NARS Smudgeproof Eye Base.

I’ll never be without this and i’m on my third tube now. No creasing of shadows, shadows are more intense and don’t budge all day. The best product NARS has produced, in my opinion.

5. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow, 90 Convoitise.

A pale beige with gold micro shimmer, ideal for the inner corner of the eye and on the arch of the brow bone. Love it even though it is drying out now.

6. Diorshow Fusion Mono Long Wear Eyeshadow, 661 Météore.

Pale copper tone with pink and gold micro glitter that is ideal as a light swatch with a large eyeshadow brush over the whole lid. Great for blue and hazel eyes. I love the consistency of this much more than Illusion D’Ombre eye shadows; however, i love the shades in the Chanel so much more than the Dior ones. They need to team up!

7. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Eyeshadow, 97 New Moon.

Lovely brown/copper shade with gold, green and pink micro glitter. Love this one and i do believe the consistency of this new shade is much better than previous Illusion D’Ombres i have owned. They seem so much more creamier and are not drying out as quickly. Mmmm Interesting!! I used this one in the v and crease of my eye and as an eyeliner a round the whole eye too.

8. Diorshow Waterproof Eyeliner, 738 Rosy Gold.

A gorgeous rosy gold with pink undertones, which is great for the waterline and how i use it. Great staying power.

fotd meLIPS.

1. Dior Lip Liner Pencil, 952 Rouge Royal.

Lovely soft red lip liner that blends easily and stays put.

2. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer, 005 Fresh Pink.

This does slightly plump up my lips. Not for the whole day but it does keep the lips soft and hydrated too. I use it all the time and need to buy another. Very nice product.

3. Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick, 28 Romantic.

This is one of my most favourite shades from Chanel and wouldn’t it be discontinued ?!!! Why do companies do that? It’s just the perfect shade of red and Chanel have never repeated it exactly either. It has a blue base and pink in it as well. I love it because it is a very wearable red, and my teeth look whiter when i wear it.

Those were the products i used for my FOTD. It’s no surprise then that it takes me a good 30 minutes to apply them.

Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)

Battle of The Body Oils …………Which One Cuts Through The Grease?

•November 8, 2014 • 10 Comments

Hi everyone,

I have been getting into my body oils in a big way lately. My skin can become dry in the winter and especially when I’ve been swimming. I love body creams and lotions too but when you’re in a hurry, body oils apply quicker and dry much quicker. Or do they?

Battle of The Body Oils

I have 5 at the moment and all are very different. Three are for the face, hair and body, one for the body and hair and one for the skin. So which one is the best?

1.The Body Shop Chocomania Beautifying Oil. Dry Oil for Face, Body and Hair. 100ml/£9.00

The most inexpensive of the lot. It is a fairly viscose oil with a lovely chocolaty smell. I want to eat it mmm. Contains nut oils and community fair trade marula oil. Unfortunately, it struggles to dry down and when i have used it after a shower in the gym, i notice marks on my clothing. I will never use it on my face and it is quite thick for my fine hair, so i have avoided using it in my hair too.

I think this one is a great for people with very dry skin and i would apply it in tiny amounts. A very nice fragrance though and is available in many other fragrances too. I give it 6 out of 10 for this reason and it’s price.       6/10

2. L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil. 100ML/£35.00

Another fairly viscose oil. This oil is for the skin only. It has a beautiful sweet almond fragrance to it, which reminds me of Bakewell Tart. Yum!  It contains 50% almond and Camelina oil, which contains Omega 3 and 6.

It comes with a spray to avoid using too much at a time, which is a huge bonus as this is not a cheap oil. This does dry down after about ten minutes and it has great moisturizing properties. Very good for the elbows. I am giving this 8 out of ten as it has the best fragrance and works well on the skin too. The price is a little hefty.  8/10

3. L’Occitane Fabulous Oil. Body & Hair. 100ml/£29.00.

This one is more of a dry oil in the sense that it does dry down fairly well and gives a fragrance similar to baby powder, which is lovely. Reminds me of when i was a child and i used talcum powder.

It contains two rare oils from Africa which are, baobab and desert date palm oils.

I haven’t tried it out on my hair yet  Great if you want to get dressed 10 minutes after applying as it doesn’t leave any residue on clothing. It also uses a spray for application.    9/10

4. Roger & Gallet Huile Sublime Bois D’Orange Perfumed Dry Oil. Face, Body and Hair. 30ml/£12.00 

I am slightly disappointed with this one. The fragrance is my least favourite, (warm oranges). It contains orange essential oil and Vitamin E.

It dries down quite well though and once again, i haven’t tried it out on my hair or face. I will not repurchase this one; however, there are other fragrances available in this range.  I like that it comes in a smaller bottle for travelling too.   7/10

5. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil. Face, Body, Hair.  100ml/£28.00 and 50ml/£17.00Nuxe Body Oils

I have saved the best until last. This one has a lovely subtle fragrance, which isn’t over powering at all. Sweet floral. The oil itself is very light and makes my skin lovely and soft while drying down very quickly. It is also fabulous on the ends of the hair too. Non greasy and leaves hair very soft. I haven’t used it on my face.

It’s composed of 97.8% natural ingredients containing Vitamin E and 6 plant oils which are; sweet almond, borage, macadamia, hazelnut, camellia and St. Johns Wort.

A great price for its quality and leaves no residue on clothing either. Comes in a golden shimmer variety, although i’m not too fond of the fragrance of that one. Also available in a smaller size for travelling.           10/10

Do you use any body oils? Which are your favourite body moisturizers? Take care and i will see you all soon. ;-)
