Good enough to eat !

I went into body shop the other day and they had offers on their body butter and shower gel. The shower gel was £3 and the body butter £8 instead of £12 :)

I Picked up both the shows gel and body butter in the strawberry scent.
Also if you have a body shop card you get 10% off all purchases :) and at the end of my receipt I got £10 off my next £25 shop aswell as my 10% so can't go wrong !!

Anyway onto the review :).....

I personally can't resist the smell and the touch of this body butter on my skin, the smell is to die for and you smell good enough to eat !!

It applies smoothly and is VERY moisturising !!

The body butter is enriched with strawberry seed oil, Community Trade cocoa butter and shea butter. The smell and moisturisation lasts all day long and I can still smell the strawberries on my skin the next day!

This is a product which i will definitely keep going back for and will even be getting the coconut one as thats smells divine !!!

I will not only be getting this product again because of its yummy smell and softness but also for its quality & price and longevity of the product ! A small amount goes a long way and this product will last me a long while !! :)

So get moisturised up and smell good enough to eat !!!

Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder

The ultra fine and soft texture of Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder makes it easy to apply to your face and decolletage. The result is a totally natural, healthy, bronzed glow.

It looks like a chocolate bar and sorta smells like one too.  The packaging is carboard, and it opens like a little book, with a heavily magnetized closure, to reveal the chocolate bar-shaped bronzer inside.  For cardboard packaging, it's pretty decent.  I'd say it feels on-par with Benefit's packaging, and it's much less expensive. 

The bronzer itself smells like chocolate ----overall rather delicious without being too sweet or foody.  The scent won't linger on your skin, The bronzer swatches as a medium based brown that's 90% matte with the tiniest amount of sparse gold shimmer.  I saw complaints on Makeupalley about this not being very pigmented.  I had the exact opposite experience.  This stuff is so ridiculously pigmented that I need to be very careful with how much I get on my brush otherwise i look very orange !!  

The pressed powder feels very finely milled and goes on smoothly, blending with little effort.  you do need to be careful not to overload that brush and end up looking like Snooki.  Given that, though, this Bourjois bronzer lasts a very long time, especially on my oily skin and  If I apply it in the morning and I want to go out 12 hours later, I'd do a touch-up, but it really does stick around for most of the day.

Buy it now for £4.99 at boots instead of the usual £6.99

Daniel Sandler Water Colour Blush and Brush

The colour i received was chic and its more of a pink with orange undertones blush like a bronzer almost. Its a great colour especially for summer. 

The great thing about these blushes is that they feel weightless on and because of that they blend so easily. The colours are also exactly as they are in the bottle so no horrible suprises when you actually use the product :)

                                   Without Flash                                                          With Flash
Pea sized amount is all that needed !!!

The bottle, although small, will last for ages as you only require the tiniest amount for each cheek.  You have to be very careful when tipping it out though as it can be quite runny and you also need to remember to shake it before dispensing as the liquid within can separate a little. It retails at around £14.

The shade is lovely and is becoming a favourite blush of mine as i tend to just wear bronzer ! the water colour blush is highly pigmented and long wearing !!

I also received the water colour brush.....

The brush is super soft and really easy to use !! The brush retails at £15 and the blush can easily be applied with the fingers so although the brush isn't necessary it is a lovely brush !

So what's the result......

With Flash

                                                                     Without Flash

Please ignore my horrible face as i have no make up on except the blush !! lol

Overall i really love this blush and brush !!! i think i will definitely be treating myself and buying one when it eventually runs out but this could be a while !!!
