Review: Soap & Glory Glad Hair Day Conditioner


This was a bit of a mistake buy, I was meant to pick up the shampoo but somehow being the ditsy girl I am I grabbed this instead! I'm glad I did as it smells amazing, as Soap & Glory products do.

It claims to de tangle, gloss, protect and strengthen and I did notice my hair was slightly more glossy after using this but not amazingly so. As for the other claims I can't really comment as my hair doesn't tangle an awful lot and I haven't noticed whether my hair has strengthened since using this but it smells amazing and doesn't weigh my hair down in the slightest!

I would recommend this if you have quite limp, oily hair as it doesn't leave any residue on your hair to weigh it down but if your hair needs a bit more TLC then this probably won't be nourishing enough for you.

Review: Soap & Glory Calm One


I'm usually a bit sceptical about calming bath products because the majority of the time they smell like lavender and not much else and I'm not entirely fond of lavender at all. I do like some lavender scented things like LUSH Ikle Baby Bot and their Twilight bath ballistics although that does not smells a lot like lavender to me at all, haha but usually, I will avoid it and thereby avoid relaxing/calming bits and bobs but I gave this baby a quick sniff in Boots and yay! Think Johnsons Baby Bath come Clean On Me. Ah-may-zing.

It is the perfect combination of calming and girly and I actually did find it rather relaxing! It's super moisturising as well with it's added body lotion and it actually feels like conditioner. It doesn't give a massive amount of bubbles but I'm not all that bothered for the most part because I'm into the bath bombs and melts but if you're wanting a tonne of bubbles, this will give you some but not a lot.

To sum this review up, I love it I just wish is bubbled up just ever so slightly more.

Any other S&G recommendations for me?

Review: Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation


After using BB Cream for a good few months now I didn't think I'd really ever be converted back to a foundation but I have seen so many great reviews of the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation I just had to try it! I am Mummy to a 2 year old who has never slept through the night so needless to say I pretty much always look knackered so when I saw this foundation had an anti-fatigue effect I was sold. 

I have read about 101 reviews on this where 90% of people say there is hardly any shimmer/the shimmer doesn't transfer blah blah blah...Lies! As you can tell from the photographs above the bottle and my fingers (that I used to apply the foundation) are flipping covered but the shimmer is very small and evenly dispersed but it is definitely detectable on your face if you look closely in a mirror. It probably wouldn't be noticeable from a normal distance or to your boyfriend. Although you could probably shake a pot of glitter on your face and most men wouldn't notice. It doesn't have a ton of shimmer but if you look in the mirror in a well lit room or outside then you will be able to see it.

The coverage it good, I'd say medium to full coverage which is definitely buildable. I have pretty good skin at the moment but if I get blemishes they scar immediately and this foundation covered those marks pretty well. It's quite a pain to blend for me but that is more than likely because I'm used to a BB Cream which I can just slap on and not pay much attention to so if your used to foundation then this will be fine.

It is scented, it has a light, fresh kind of cucumber scent which is nice and doesn't stay long which is even nicer but it's worth noting if your skin isn't keen on scented products.

As far as the claims for the "Anti Fatigue Effect! and the "Radiant Glow" I will have to agree, I do look noticeable more awake and my skin definitely looks nice and glowy so thumbs up from me! Thanks Rimmel!
