Tea for your Bath!?

I was so intrigued by the launch of The Body Shop's new Fuji Green Tea collection. Not only because I love green tea scents (I used to steal my sister's bottle of the Elizabeth Arden Green Tea perfume all the time when I was younger, so it reminds me of old times!) but also because they've done something really cute and unique and released a 'Bath Tea' along with the usual line up of lotions, body wash and fragrance.
It's such a novel idea, the pot basically contains bath salts mixed in with actual green tea...

Hourglass Modernist Palette

I know I’m a little late on the bandwagon with this one, but today I’m going to be reviewing the heavily-hyped Hourglass Modernist palettes. When I first clapped eyes on a picture of these, I swooned out loud. They are simply beautiful. Because of this, I’ve held back on writing a review as I wanted to be 100% sure how I felt about the actual product, and to give it a thorough road test before putting my thoughts out there for everyone to see, regardless of how aesthetically pleasing they may be!
I love Hourglass on the whole, and have been nothing but impressed with all of the other products I’ve tried from them, so I was expecting great things. Something about this palette however, left me a little disappointed...

The Boob-Checking Shower Gel!

My friends over at boob-checking-charity CoppaFeel are hijacking showers everywhere this month with the release of their limited edition version of I Love... 's Perfectly Peachy Shower Creme.

If you've never heard of CoppaFeel before, it's a charity set up to educate and encourage young women (and men) to check their boobs for the first signs of breast cancer. It was set up by a wonderful woman call Kris Hallenga, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at just 23...

YSL Tint in Oil

I’ve always been a huge fan of YSL lip products. They tend to release unique formulas before all the other brands and I adore their signature fruity, mango scent. When they announced the release of the new ‘Tint in Oil’ however, I wasn’t too excited about it. Something about lip oil isn’t that appealing to me, and combined with colour, it doesn’t sound like it would be a winning combination.
How wrong I was. The texture of these is simply divine, almost like an oil-gloss hybrid. It’s not overly slippy or greasy on the lips, but still has a soft, nourishing element to it that only an oil could have. The packaging is really pretty, a further extension of the Rouge Volupte design that incorporates the iconic YSL logo and metallic finish...

BaByliss Diamond Waves

*Sponsored Post

BaByliss have just launched a new range of hairstyling tools called the ‘Diamond’ range. Consisting of a hair dryer, straighteners and a waving wand, they are all designed to help leave your hair totally smooth, soft and frizz-free with their new ‘Diamond Radiance Shine System’.
I got the chance to give the new waving wand a little road test this week and I was really impressed. It’s quite an unusual shape with a thin, twisted barrel, so I was intrigued to see the type of curls it produced...
