Lush: Putty for my hands review

"There's nothing silly about this putty,
We all know how important it is to wash our hands frequently to keep dirt and germs at bay, but if your skin is sensitive then all this washing can cause your hands to become sore and dry. Putty for Your Hands is a brand new invention that uses soothing ingredients like oats, vegetable glycerine, marshmallow mucilage and shea butter to soothe and moisturise the skin as it cleanses"
Putty for your hands is an amazing soap invented yet again by Lush for people with sensitive and dry skin, thus great invention comes naked with no packaging, natural, with a no soap base and no foaming agent which can irritate sensitive skin this soap won't lather like your used to but will leave you with the "I need more" feeling ! what I love about putty for your hands is how quick and effective it works straight into the water I notice my hands have a thin layer of oil to hydrate them straight away after washing, rinsing and patting my hands dry I notice the oil has gone but left behind is noticeably softer and smoother hands, soft to the touch putty has worked it's magic and earned a place in my heart. It's so great for sensitive skin with ingredients such as Shea butter which is a naturally occurring fat derived from the nut of the Katite Karite tree, oats, oat milk, marshmallow mucilage which lubricates and smooths, glycenite which is moisturising and essential oils such as lavender, chamomile and tea tree. Though its great for dry sensitive hands and skin I find it works wonders on my dry to dry hands. My hands have always been dry and this has left a noticeable softness to my hands and I'm very very happy with the product and defiantly will be re buying some more, we'll done lush for another great product !
Hope this is a simple review for you all beauts <3

Who is back waving her magic wand ?

Snow fairy is back again this year making another debut for another year. Snow fairy smells of candy floss, pear drops and all things sweet, it's been a big favourite of mine for some time. Snow fairy is a limited edition once a year treat from the creators at lush, with a bit of sparkle snow fairy is an all time favourite reaching best seller at the end of every year. Snow fairy though one of lush's most synthetic products sells in the bulk with most people stocking up to last them the new year, snow fairy for me is the ultimate sweet treat, with sparkle and an amazing sent I understand why this is an all time favourite. If you miss out on snow fairy and her magic there is items in store that smell just like snow fairy that will keep you tided over till October again, creamy candy bubble bar, rock star soap and the god mother soap are some of the items in lush that smell like snow fairy. Snow fairy didn't come alone this year though, with snow fairy came the magic wand which is a reusable bubble bar with a small bell, Matching the sent of snow fairy you could make a small treat for anyone, what I love about snow fairy is its unique sweet smell and how it makes me crave for indulgent treats to rot my teeth. Snow fairy leaves my skin soft and smooth with a little sprinkle of magic, it's truly a magical shower gel

Photos through out my week's

So I though I'd pop up some pictures from my past thew weeks :)

September favourites !

Hello spooky beauts, iv neglected you a lot recently I'm sorry, so lets dive right on in. Here we go
Favourite September fragrance.
The body shop vanilla body mist, this sent is just pure vanilla it's very light, last all day and just sits and leaves a subtle hint of vanilla through out the day I'm always getting "someone smells sweet" "that's amazing"
Skin care.
Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit oil free moisturiser & visibly clear pink grapefruit cream wash. Both these products leave my face tingly and soft, It's a very get up and go sent very stimulating. Leaves your skin soft.
Eau Roma water toner water, love this bottle of magic liquid it refreshes my face, leaves it hydrated and lasts an awful long time. Lavender to balance the skin.
Make up.
Mally evercolor automatic waterproof eyeliner, I love this eye liner it is truly long lasting and water proof, I do re apply as I like the heavy eye look.
Avon super extend extreme mascara, this baby is extreme in every way, separating lashes and giving that almost fake look, applying less leaves you with a natural look but applying more leaves you with the wow factor.
Rimmel London stay matte pressed powder, I love this powder, it's soft leaves a matte finish, delicate and light I do have to re apply but it minimises my pores.
Cosmopolitan beauty expert eyebrow styling kit, this kit comes with 3 stencils, highlighter pencil, angled brush and the most amazing eyebrow pluckers in the world, along side the applicators comes a very holding white gel, a light matte colour and a dark brown this little pallet is amazing and works wonders for me the tweezers are just great.
Lush jackie Oates colour supplement, I have a love hate relationship with this product, some times it does me justice some times not, though this product is the lightest from their colour supplement range it's still too dark for me, though it never looks like that on my skin.
So finally that was septembers favourites !
I'm already preparing for October with some amazing lush skin care products
Bye spooky beauts <3

Natural post: flavoured water.

So my biggest issue I have is I don't drink water, I can not stand the stuff. Icky :( it's just so plain so I did some research and decided to add some frozen fruit (tesco's summer fruits frozen back) brambles, raspberries, blueberries and red currents. So besides just adding these to water and allowing to thaw a tiny bit releasing bursts of flavours you can add these fruits to a ice cube tray and then freezing. You can add these little ice cubes to your water and allowing to melt. Yummy.

September empties

Now in the picture you can see one is full, well that one is gone in the bin ^.^'
Right so we have
Philosophy Amazing grace, this is one amazing smelling bath and shower gel. I got this for Christmas last year and its lasted me a while, I love the philosophy on each bottle.
Neutrogena visibly clear spot stress control daily scrub, this scrub is amazing ! Since the first time I started using this product I had results straight away, but the longer I used it the less the results showed it is amazing but I think switching it up will stop your skin building up a barrier to the product.
Pretty smooth nose pore strips, got to love these strips not only do they remove the blackheads and unclog pores but my skin felt amazing after. I cut one of these strips up and popped one on my forehead and chin, it saved me money! Will be Doing a DIY nose pore strip tutorial at some point.
Rimmel London stay matte pressed powder 001 transparent , iv being using this powder for about 2 to 3 years and its always amazing though I do have to re apply like with most powders but it always leaves a matte finish.
Rimmel London hide my blemish ivory 001, don't shun me but iv had this product for about 5 years. Yes this one ! I know that's bad but it's lasted me that long and still gives an amazing coverage though I may not be repurchasing this product it does an amazing job !
Mally evercolor automatic waterproof eyeliner in onyx, got this little baby for Christmas last year and boy is it amazing, an amazing glide on texture it last all day though I touché up.
And that's my empties for this month !
Some amazing brands that aren't known !

Burt's bees rejuvenating lip balm with acai berry.

Ah, finally I have had some money to buy something i have been hearing about constantly ! I picked this little delicious 100% natural lip balm up on sale yesterday for £2.33 in deb's,
And let me tell you something it was a complete waste of money,
The one thing I loved about this lip product was the taste and smell. It's truly a lovely delicious sent. But that's it. It left my dry lips dry. Nothing happened they felt nourished and hydrated when the product was still damp on my lips, but after say 20 to 30 minutes and the product dried out, my lips where still chapped and dry, now your probably thinking give it a few days. But no. When I buy a lip product the results should show right away. Yes in 2 weeks time my lips might feel amazing but the product just sits on my lips and does nothing. I'm really disappointed. Yes I will try other products from the company but ill be very sceptical. There has been so many amazing reviews but this just did not do it for me. Sorry burt.

My facial cleansing routine

Okay so I thought I'd do a post on my facial care routine and the products I use.
Products used-
SBC 3in1 complete cleansing and toning gel with green tea, ginkgo biloba and elderflower.
Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit cream wash.
Lush Eau Roma Water, toner water with lavender water and rose water.
Neutrogena Visibly clear Spot stress control.
Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit oil free moisturiser.
Okay so first things first I apply a generous amount of the SBC to my face and eyes then wipe it away with a damp sponge, this 3in1 products is also a eyemakeup remover. I repeat this step once more wiping away again.
Next I dampen my face and apply the cream wash, washing that away and patting dry with another sponge, next I apply the toner water and wipe that away with a sponge, again i do a second cream wash, washing it away and applying toner again and wiping that away.
Next I use the spot scrub applying that once and washing away, I then pat dry.
Next I once again apply toner this time leaving this product on the skin to dry.
Last but not least I apply my moisturiser to my face and neck and I'm done.
That all I really do to my face to keep it clean, these products are really some thing ill do a review on each.

Jon interview

So want to know what you should be doing at a job interview ? Here's a few quick tips and answers you need for an ultimate success.
Step one, applying for a company ? Research is vital, doing your homework and researching the company will show dedication.
Step two, dress properly. Now for a women a tailored shirt or fitted shirt would be appropriate in either light colours or blocks. Fitted trousers tailored so they don't drag, and if wearing a skirt aim for the knee. Men a shirt, white or black with a tight jumper and tailored trousers.
Step three, time, don't be late, this will show a lack of interest arriving between 15 to 5 minutes early.
Step four, be prepared, search mostly Likely questions asked during an interview and practice.
Step five, Smile and greet you interviewer by their last name with a firm none sweaty hand shake *Top Tip* spraying your hand with deodorant before your interview will keep it crisp and sweat free.
Step six, when asked about past employers do not talk negatively, explain to them your time there and what you learnt.
Step seven, remember stay focused don't over talk, answer questions directly and clearly.
Step eight, posture, sitting straight, shoulders back, back straight and abdominal muscled clenched slightly to support your back.
Remember we all mess up, make mistakes. It's a hit and miss just keep going keep smiling :)

Getting over heart break ?

So today's post I decided to do something that once in a while can happen. We can afflict it or they can. Yes heartbreak, heartbreak that feeling as if something inside you is ripping in half, when your heart stops for a beat, that feeling when the tears just won't stop.
I have decided to do this post because I know so many people who suffer day in and day out in silence crying into their pillow.
So let's get started.
Why does heart break accrue ?
Well heartbreak accrues when a person you have a strong emotional bond with decides they don't want you anymore or that its just not right anymore. We all go thought this "you can love someone and not want to spend time with them" it's a quote I swear by and still do it really did apply a number of times in my relationship now I want to tell you something, my relationship is not all love, sweet moments amazing sex no. For me it's paranoia filled, regret, knowing we are not going any where and lots of other things. For me my down side in my relationship is the passion it went a long time ago you see I am A sexual and struggle with a lot of the "sex" moments I normally (shoot me) lay on my back and take it.
Now I'm sharing this as a number of men and women suffer as well and it's horrible. Now that can be a major moment to heart break.
Dealing with heart break.
Sometimes one person won't want it to end, and the other will. Now it will always be this way, some people come to a civil agreement but on the inside there could be turmoil.
Step one, get out. If its not working it's not working end of so many people will try and try again never realising, If its over it's other don't keep going back for the other person. They will come to see you as a position one they can walk all over.
Step two, talk it out. You see your best friend she's there he's there. They are there they will never leave you they will help you. Do not suffer in silence share your pain your decisions, let them help.
Step three, do not drown your sorrows. We are all human and inflicting damage and alcohol into your body during a state like that will not end well.
Step four, self harm. Iv done this, I was in a dark place. Let's not diverse not at any time should you cut your self, slap, or beat. Your a strong person if you have the urge tell someone confide in them.
Step 5, shopping. Now this is something that will keep your mind occupied you can hang around with friends catch up listen to them, talk to then its a time you have been missing.
Step 6, new hair, new colour. Time for a change want to get ride of a phase in your life you would rather forget get a new hair cut, manicure, pedicure treat your self.
Step 7, cut communication, delete there number, get rid of them on Facebook. Doing these things will help you to get focused instead of pleading messages when they realised a mistake. We need clarity and with that comes sacrifice. Let them heal, let you heal, seeing them facebooking with others, drinking, partying wont help them. Won't help you.
Step 8, time. Now with time comes healing and time does not heal all wounds but it makes them lesser so remember, with each tick of the clock you have a moment, a new moment a chance to change though that would will be there for sometime confiding in others and letting time work it's spell will help.
We all love and loose, some greater some it's just a moment but getting lost along the way to an emotion so powerful so amazing is a chance others may never experience. It's a unique moment that will be cherished could be cherished. If fate wants you back together then maybe a year down the line you might bump into each other. But giving your self time, will always help.
I hope this helped <3 happy Mabon 🍁🍂🍃

Taking care of your hair

So here we are falling into a new season, with harsh weather about and the change in climate our hair is sure to suffer so here is a few simple tips on taking care of your hair.
Towel vs cotton shirt, for the last about 5 months i have been using an old tshirt to rap around my hair, the reason I started doing this was towels absorb a lot of the hydration and moisture from your hair leaving you with that dry feeling, a t shirt leaves your hair with plenty of moisture and you can feel the benefits right away.
To brush or not to brush ?, when your hair is wet it is more Likely to split and snap so adding a hair protector and running your fingers gently through it will reduce splitting.
Platting and braiding every time I step out of the shower I plat my hair into pig tails the reason is yet again to stop and reduce splitting, do this every night as well to reduce splitting hair.
With our a paddle and comb ? Now if your needing to brush your hair after a shower or in general try using a paddle brush as this helps to reduce stretching the hair and snapping it, it's also a great detangler and covers a wider length of hair, a comb is great as it has very spacious gaps that greatly reduce the amount of brakeage in the hair.
Satin and silk, sleeping with a satin or silk pillow helps prevent hair from tangling too much in your sleep and also helps reduce snapping and breakage.
The 6 month itch ? Now I know many girls and guy have the ends of their hair trimed every 4 weeks, and then they complain as they are trying to grow their hair. News flash it takes an average 4 weeks for your hair to grow 1 or 2 inches so deciding on leaving the hair trimming for about 6 months will show more signs of growth.
I hope this helps on preserving your hair for longer and keeping it healthy and happy remember to cleanse, deep mostirise and hear protect your hair in any weather.
Lots of love delicate things <3

DIY body scrub.

What you will need,
A small container,
Something to mix with,
sugar for a more gentle scrub or salt for a more vigorous scrub.
Next some carrier oil, sweet almost for dry eczema, avocado for sensitive skin, evening primrose for ageing skin and female problems, jojoba ideal for spots and acne, peach kernel for dry, ageing, sensitive skin, grapeseed suitable for nut allergies, macadamia nut is great for healing scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations, Wheatgerm has regenerative properties and is a powerful anti oxidant.
Once you have decided on your oil (you can also use extra virgin olive oil or olive oil) you can add essential oils or just continue with oil and sugar. For essential oils look up the benefits and purposes Before randomly adding them as you could end up with a mess, next add one to two drops of your chosen essential oil, then mix the contents up.
There you go a body scrub DIY with essential oils. :)

My autumn wish list.

Im a very dark clothing sort of girl, and i love anything adorned with skulls, I'm very into ox blood and burgundy this year, I normally stay clear from patterns of any sort especially aboriginal sort of patterns they are just not my thing but as of lately I'll make a small exception Products from Newlook and eBay.
