Lush Products: Day Of The Dead!

So as most of you probably know lush bring out products relating to the seasons e.g. Easter, Christmas, Halloween... So as halloween is coming up they've bought out a range of products based on the holiday celebrated by mexicans called Day of the Dead!These products are limited edition and won't be around for long so make sure you take a trip down to your local lush and purchase these amazing products!!

Day of the Dead is celebrated on October 31st to November 2nd, the festival is a traditional and beautiful celebration of the lives of those who have passes away and alows the living to remember them in their own way.

Anyway onto the products...

The first product is called Calacas and is avaliable in 3 colours, yellow, green and orange. They are priced at £2.95 for a 100g skull shaped shower jelly. One of it's ingrediants is aloe vera which is very effective for cooling and soothing the skin. It helps to reduce redness and irritations. It has a lovely scent of lime and jelly bean.

The next product is a soap called Lady Catrina, it's a beautiful purple with bright coloured shapes on top. You can get a 100g chunk of this soap for £2.95. This wonderful soap smells of lime with a zesty fragrance of fruit pastilles. As well as leaving your skin smelling amazing, this soap will make your skin super soft! This is the soap that will wake you up in the morning because of the nice smell.

Last but not least is Calavera, this is a bath ballistic (bath bomb). You can get this ballistic for £2.95. It has the scent of lime which is a mexican favourite with food and alcohol. Drop this in your bath with the water running and it will make the water look magical as it changes colour!

My next post will be about the Christmas products!

I'm sat on the sofa bored watching NCIS so I thought I'd do a random blog post! This is the first blog post I'm doing on my phone so I hope it uploads, fingers crossed. If anyone was wondering what software I'm using its called Blogaway and I think its only available on the android market, I looked on itunes but couldn't find it! But anyway on the the blog post...

I'm really obssessed with looking at tattoo's, unfortunately I'm only 14 nearly 15 so I will have to wait a while to get one! My friend is an amazing drawer and drew a bow on my wrist and I fell in love with it! It's made me decided what I'm getting for my first tattoo. I've always wanted a black star on my wrist but now I'm hooked on bow tattoos, I've decided I'm going to get a little pink bow on my left wrist:)

Has anyone ever had a wrist tattoo? because I really wanna know how painful its going to be!

I'll add a picture of the bow my friend drew:)

I really wasn't sure what to wear today so i just got my grey skirt white top and put it together, when i decided what i was wearing i wasn't sure whether to have the top tucked in on left out, i think it looks nice both ways but today i decided i was going to wear it tucked in.

However after looking threw my clothes i decided to try it on with a black top, so i decided to go with the black top but left it out not tucked in cause personially i think it looked better like this. I also wore a light grey cardigan which i didn't wear while taking this picture.

Black Top - New Look - £3, White Top - New Look - £3, Grey Skirt - H&M - £7

Black Leggings - Primark - £3, Black Cardigan - Tesco - £6, Grey Cardigan - Primark - £7

I heard so much good things about the Barry M nail paints so i decided to go out and buy one. This is the colour Bright Pink, i would describe this as a real Barbie pink! One of the prettiest pinks i've ever seen. I was not impressed as i thought i would be with these nail polish's as it took 3 coats for good covered and took ages to dry, so whenever i wear this nail paint i have to do it when i'm planning on sitting around for the day! The thing that i do like about these nail paint's thought is the size of the brush, it's not to big but not to small, just the right size.

Shop: Boots/Superdrug

Price: £2.98 but usually on offer, 2 for £5 or 3 for the price of 2

I fell in love with this colour when i seen it and had to buy it, it's only £1.95 a bottle! This is an metallic electric blue from the Collection 2000 Hot Looks collection. They say that the Hot Looks nail polish's are fast drying and they're definetely right!

Shop: I bought this from Tesco but you can get it from any drugstore.

Price: £1.95, they often have them on offer, 2 for £3.

I was recently sorting threw my nail polish's and came across this unusual sparkly pink/purple colour. I was sure how this was going to look on my nails and if it would be easy to apply, but after trying it i am impressed. In this picture i'm wearing 2 coats and Miss Sporty top coat, but you only really need 1 coat.

This nail polish is from the Collection 2000 Maxiflex collection and is in the colour 'Latin Love'. I would recomend this nail polish to anyone who love's quick drying nail polish that is easy to apply!

You can purchase this nail polish from Boots, Superdrug, Tesco etc. I don't think Collection 2000 is available in the US. The price is £2.49 - £3.00 depending on where you buy it.

Please comment on this blog post telling me ways i could improve my future posts:)

Palmer's Review

Today i woke up and decided to do a review on my Palmer's products.

I've got the Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter, the Moisturizing Lip Balm and the Cocoa Butter Formula 'Fragrance Free' Lotion.

Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter;

The scent of this product is amazing! It really does smell of dark chocolate and peppermint!

It doesn't taste as nice as it smells, but i like the taste of it. They use to do this Lip Butter in Dark Chocolate & Cherry but i can no longer find it in stores or online, i was so tempted to buy this flavour after such a good experience with the Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Flavour so i was quite disapointed when i went to buy it and couldn't find it!

This product is meant to moisturize your lips, and with most lip products you find that they don't really do that but with this one, OMG my lips feel so soft after using this!

It soaks into your lips in under an hour, and your lips feel like a baby's bum!

The simple ingredients is also a bonus, this product only contains Petrolatum (Vaseline), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil and Flavour.

You can buy this product in your local drugstore for under £3/$3.

Moisturizing Lip Balm;

This product is an amazing little lip balm! I've always seen it in stores but never sure whether to buy it or not, but when Asda had it down to £1 i couldn't not buy it.

This lip balm is formed in a semi-transparant, yellow block and stored in a cylindrical tube (a stick). I like how it's in a tube because i hate putting my fingers into a pot, i find it really unhygienic, so the product being in a stick is a bonus!

When you apply the lip balm it doesn't leave your lips sticky, it goes on really easy and instantly rehydrates your lips. There is a slight scent to the balm, but when applied you can't taste anything on your lips. On the tube it says ' Helps prevent & protect chapped, cracked or win burned lips' and i totally agree with it. A huge plus to this product is that it has a SPF 15 so you know your lips are protected at all times, and you don't have to buy a separate product to protect them!

This product is £1.69 to buy from most stores, but asda are doing it for £1 at the moment, so get down there for a good bargin!

Cocoa Butter Formula (Fragrance Free) Lotion;

I always like to moisturize my legs after i have shaved them and when imogen ( said that this was a good moisturizer i thought i'd give it a go! And i don't regret buying this product one bit, i love how soft it makes my skin. It doesn't take that long to sink into your skin which i love, because i hate sitting around waiting for a moisurizer to dry.

I love the packaging of this product, the bottle is so unique and different from the rest. It's got a teardrop shape bottle which is white then the writting is purple. When you first use it the product takes quite a bit of sqeezing to get out of the bottle, i find it easier if i tip the bottle upside down and squeeze.

When i bought this they had one with blue writting and the other with purple and because i have never purchased this before i didn't know what the difference was because it did not say on the bottle. When i got home i searched on the internet and found that the blue one has a fragence while the purple is fragrance free. If i would of known this at the time i would have gone with the blue. Also they do this with an SPF 15 but they had ran out so i was left with just a moisturizer, althought it would have been nice to have the SPF 15 one i'm overly happy with what i bought!

You can get this at all drugstores for under £5/$5 but Asda have got it for £2 at the moment so hurry up and get yours before the offer is over.

I purchased all these products with my own money, and i am not affiliated with the company or products mentioned above. I was not paid to do this review and everything i write was my opinion.
