Review: L'Occitane Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream

The one product that is pretty non existent from my beauty routine is hand cream. I have never managed to find a hand cream that I've been happy with, I tend to find that they are quite greasy and takes ages to soak into the skin. However I've recently been using L'Occitane's Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream and I'm really pleased with it.

L'Occitane Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream

The L'Occitane Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream has a sweet vanilla scent, which I personally really like as I don't find that it smells artificial or sickly sweet like some other vanilla scented products do. 

The consistency of the hand cream is quite thick,which means that a small amount of product will go a long way.The formula contains 20% shea butter, which is a fantastic beauty ingredient which helps to protect and nourish the skin.

When applied I don't find that the product makes my hands greasy at all and it actually soaks into the skin quite quickly, which really impresses me (I'm quite an impatient person!)

After using this product my hands feel much softer and I definitely think this is going to become one of my go to products for Autumn/Winter. 

This product can be purchased for £8.00 in L'Occitane stores,online or you could pick up the latest issue of Marie Claire (dated November 2014) for £3.99 and get the hand cream free!

This is the first product I've tried from L'Occitane, do you have any L'Occitane product recommendations?

Review: Zoella Beauty Fizz Bar

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks then I'm sure you'll be aware that recently Zoella (A.K.A Zoe Sugg) released her own beauty range entitled 'Zoella Beauty'. 

Whilst I'm a big fan of Zoe's blog and Youtube channel I will confess that I wasn't in any hurry to rush out and buy the products. However I recently popped into Superdrug to pick up a few bits when I stumbled across the Zoella Beauty range and curiosity got the better of me and I ended up leaving the store with the Zoella Beauty 'Let's Glow Candle' and Fizz Bar. In this post I'll be reviewing the Fizz Bar.

Zoella Beauty Fizz Bar

The packaging for the Zoella Fizz Bar (and in fact all of the range) is super pretty! The Fizz Bar is shaped like a chocolate bar and contains 8 fizzy squares which can be broken apart fairly easily. This is one of my favourite things about the product as it means you can use as much (or as little) as you like so nothing's wasted. I tend to use two squares per bath which I find works well.

The Fizz Bar has quite a light floral fragrance with a hint of sweetness, which is lovely. When added to water the bath squares fizz away and leave the water with a lovely light floral scent and feeling almost silky. I have to admit that I was a teeny bit disappointed that the product didn't do anything spectacular when added my bath (I think LUSH has spoiled me slightly) but my skin did feel nice and soft afterwards.

The Fizz Bar costs £5 and can be purchased from Superdrug or Feel Unique. I think the price of the product is very reasonable, as you could effectively have 8 baths with the one product. I think this product would make a lovely gift, as the product and packaging feel much more luxurious than the price suggests.

Have you tried anything from the Zoella Beauty range? What did you think?

September 2014 favourites

September 2014 favourites
MUA lipstick in 'shade 1' -  I'm trying to be a little bit braver with my lipstick choices and I've been trying out a number of darker coloured lipsticks. This has been my favourite of the bunch. I'd describe the colour as a 'red wine' kinda shade - making it perfect for this time of year. 

The Body Shop Coconut Beautifying Oil - I have been primarily been using this product as a body oil - it leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated.The oil can also be used on the face and the hair. Coconut is my all time favourite smell so to me this smells amazing

Review: VIP Volume 3/4 Flicky Layered Instant Weave

I recently purchased 'The VIP Volume 3/4 Flicky Layered Instant Weave' from VIP Hair. VIP Hair is a line of hair extensions/hair pieces by Vicky Pattison (best known for appearing in Geordie Shore,Ex On The Beach and more recently I'm A Celebrity) alongside Sally's Glitz And Glam.

The VIP Volume 3/4 Flicky Layered Instant Weave is a 22" hairpiece which offers the look of a full head of hair extensions in just a few minutes. 

How to apply
The hairpiece is really easy to apply. First section your natural hair,remembering to leave a couple of inches at the front and sides (I then clip back the rest of my natural hair). The hairpiece is fixed to a lace cap with combs at the top and bottom, slide the combs in at the top of your head and the nape of your neck to ensure a secure fit. Finally backcomb your natural hair and pull it back to cover the join.
