My Soap & Glory Addiction

Every christmas I seem to get a Soap & Glory set as most girls out there do, and this past Christmas was no different. I got a lovely set of bath goodies and body stuff as well as a makeup set. I was pleasantly surprised by this one called the Girl-O-Whirl.


The set includes 6 shades of eyeshadow, 6 lip colours, Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara, Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss in Nudist, Glow All Out, Solar Powder, Smoulder Kohl and 3 brushes. I have included some swatches of the eyeshadow shades, the sexy mother pucker shade and the two highlighter/blushes.


As you can see from the pics at the top, I have amassed a rather large collection of goodies and absolutely love them all. I forgot about the makeup set until recently after having a clear out and finding it still packaged in a box. (whoops!) Thank god I found it because I love the whole set and can’t wait to use it properly.

Can anyone recommend any other Soap & Glory goodies to me?

Hope you liked this post.

Makeup revolution: Go to the City Palette

Where to start with Makeup Revolution. A new affordable brand that can be found in the aisles of Superdrug. I have spotted it on several occasions trying to entice me to buy, but I will openly admit to not being afflicted with an urge to buy makeup all the time. This has changed recently and I have branched out of my comfort zone more with new brands and makeup revolution has been lucky enough to now feature in my makeup drawer.

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win a 6month Blogaversary competition from the lovely Brenda Busy Bee over here! The prize was a bundle of palettes from Makeup Revolution and a Benefit set. I have been super busy the last couple of weeks but have finally got round to posting a review of the first of four palette’s The “Go to the City” palette.


The Palette Features 2 blushers, a highlighter and 6 eyeshadows. The eyeshadow colours are gorgeous and all with a metallic hue. The highlighter is a lovely soft pink champagne colour and looks lovely on over the blusher. I was a little unsure of the blusher shades as in the palette they look rather bright but with a careful application and slight mix with loose powder they can look lovely and natural.


The palette is on the Makeup revolution website for a bargain price of £3.99 and for amazing quality as well, I would say it’s well worth the investment. I will be posting about the 3 other palettes in the next week so keep your eyes peeled folks.

Can anyone recommend any other makeup bargains to me that I can check out?

Zuzka Natural Beauty: Review

I have been very fortunate in the last couple of weeks as I finally got round to joining some blogger twitter chats. One of these was the Bloggers Love Hub twitter chat where you could request a gift from a brand and wait to see if you were lucky enough to be chosen. I was over the moon to find out that I was accepted to review Zuzka Natural Beauty, a company I had seen the name of but never experienced myself.

I have blogged before about my skin problems and how I am very spot prone! (very annoying at the age of 24!!!) I was intrigued to find out about Zuzka but also a bit worried as I have to be careful with any new products that they don’t make my skin flare up.

Zuzka’s Philosophy as taken from their website:

“Zuzka wants to make caring for your skin a pleasurable experience, by providing therapeutic products with fresh natural aromas that produce beneficial, satisfying results, & to offer expert advice & information to help you understand & easily fulfill all your beauty needs.”

I received a sample size bottle of their *Rose Petal Cleansing Milk* which retails at £20.00 for a full size bottle of 150ml. It states to be good for mature skin and even the most sensitive of skins. The botanicals range which this is part of is also meant to be good for dark spots or ageing spots.


I have been using the cleansing milk for about a week now and have to say I am really IMPRESSED! The milk is light but very moisturising on the skin and doesn’t leave me with a greasy feeling like some occasionally do. I have noticed that dark spots form previous breakouts that have never paled before, are now starting to lighten by using this just twice a day. The smell of the cleansing milk is a lovely subtle rose smell and not overpowering which is fab.

I have been using a small pea sized amount on my face in the morning before applying my make-up and also the same amount at night before bed. It’s helped combat my breakout this week as I always suffer when stressed and it has been one of those weeks. Before I finish the bottle up I will definitely be looking to purchase a full sized bottle as a treat to my skin to help keep it soft and supple.


Thank you to Bloggers Love Hub and Zuzka Natural beauty for letting me take part in the chat and testing this lovely item out. I would thoroughly recommend their products to anyone out there.
