Fruity!! New Roger & Gallet "Lait des bienfaits" Body Lotion.

 As I've mentioned before on a few occasions, I don't often get particularly excited over body lotions & potions but this new offering from French brand Roger & Gallet has won me over despite a rocky beginning to our relationship!

 The "Lait des bienfaits" (which literally translates to "Milk of benefits") is a body lotion containing "5 antioxidant Fruits" that promises to hydrate, nourish & invigorate for up to 24 hours, and is suitable for dry & sensitive skins.
 The first thing that struck me about this was the scent, Blood Orange with Violet leaves & Cederwood, but it mainly smells very very orangey with the tang of blood orange. It's strong!! The strength of this scent is what almost put me off the lotion at the start.
 The smell is really lovely, but I don't wear/use perfumes, body sprays, deodrants or even a body moisturiser unless I shave my legs or underarms! I'm just not used to having anything smelly on my skin at all. My mom had a sniff of it and immediately asked if she could take it off my hands! I promised I'd give it to her eventually but am now a little regretful of that promise.

LetzMakeup Fashion Videos & Posts!!

Hey Guys,

So after a somewhat failed attempt at doing fashion videos on my Shiv In The Box youtube channel a couple of years ago, I have decided to give it another go.
I am quite obsessed with clothes and fashion, styling etc (maybe not quite as much as with makeup but close!!) and have wanted to get back into the fashion side of things.

I have a lookbook account now where ye can follow any looks I upload from now on, with one look on their so far....

Everything you need to know about Eye Creams .

The skin under the eye & why we need to treat it!

The skin that starts just beneath the lower lash-line and reaches down to the top of our orbital bones can be up to 4 times thinner that the skin on the rest of the face. Therefore it's more fragile and more easily damaged.

Elemis 'Pro-Collagen' Advanced Eye Treatment.

 Despite what the picture above says, this isn't such a new product anymore, the rest is accurate though.
I received this towards the end of summer last year, shortly after it was released but wanted to finish it before posting my review. If something has big claims, it definitely deserves time to prove those claims!
