This year I attended the Clothes Show Live again, this is probably my 5th year i've gone!! I went as press the last two years, however I didn't this year as I wanted to experience it from the point of view as a shopper more than a blogger.

I want to start off by saying that I went on the last day, now I think that the last day is perfect for younger people or people that want to see the show more than the shopping side of it, purely because by the time I got there loads had already sold out. The models own stand had ran out of goodie bags and Candy Kittens and Benefit Cosmetics weren't there which is what I was really looking forward to.
The best part about the last day though is that everything is discounted further (well, most things). This is why I think it is better for school children etc. For example, on the first day the models own nail varnishes were 2 for £10 with a free goodie bag, on the last day they were 4 for £10 and a free goodie bag, shame they ran out!!!!! 

The discount also means you can haggle with the sellers, I got 2 tops for £12 instead of £14 just by asking if he could do me a deal, they also dropped a leather jacket from £45 to £30 for my little sister because she was younger. However, personally I would have rather gone on a different day and got everything I wanted. This is the first year this has happened to me though, so i'm basically saying Clothes Show is getting more and more popular by the year so get your tickets quick next year!!!

Here are my photos from the fashion theatre catwalk:








I don't have any pictures of what I bought, but I got a Lee Stafford goodie bag (10 items for £10).
About 5 different vest tops,
2 tops for my boyfriend from Your Eyes Lie for £5 each.
A brown faux fur coat (£30)
A dress and leggings from oh my love (2 for £5!!!!!!!!!)
2 tops from In Love With Fashion.
An American Apparel style hoodie for £5.
An Elle goodie bag for £3 which included 2 magazines, a free St Tropez gradual tan and a Jemma Kidd eyeliner,
and a bag of perfumes (5 for £20) although I've decided I don't like the perfumes so a waste of money!! :(
That's all for now, maybe i'll go as press again next year and take more pictures, I'm going to go on a different day too so I get better stuff!!!!

Hey guys!! So this is basically just a bit of a chatty/ranty post! I'm basically going to just let everyone know EVERYTHING I possibly can about my Benefit Cosmetics Audition/interviewas when I went to mine I really couldn't find all that much about it except a few horror stories! So let's get started:

What is an "audition" exactly?

Ok so basically an audition is Benefit terms for a practical interview. The first thing that you all should know is that Benefit don't actually do interviews when a job is available. They do interviews with people thats cv's make them sound confident and bubbly, regardless of whether there is a job available or not. If you make it through you will then get put on a list and they will call you when a job becomes available.

What did I wear?

For my interview they told me to wear all black, trousers and any plain black top and any colour comfortable shoes. So I did exactly that and wore black trousers, and a long sleeved, tight black v neck top and some black studded pumps. I would suggest you wear a top that isn't going to flap about/get caught etc as you will be doing peoples make up. I would also suggest definitely sticking to the comfy shoes rule as you're on your feet for 4 hours with no break.
I had my hair down and straight, nothing too fancy and I had my make up done very neutral with smokey brown eyes.

The process:

So when you arrive you will be taken into a training room, where you will do some role playing on how to approach customers. This is pretty serious and you should really listen to what they have to say.

You will then be shown how to use certain products, and will practice on other interviewees on the technique of how to do the make up "the benefit way". My products included, its potent eye cream, porefessional primer, you rebel and you rebel lite tinted moisturiser, benetint, sun beam, high beam, and they're real mascara. Each product has key ingredients you need to remember and tell the customer. If you mess up a bit it doesn't matter, just don't freak out and carry on as normal.

You will then go out on to the shop floor and traffic stop customers and get them to take a seat while you apply make up on them, remember, the ladies are watching and you have to do it the Benefit way!

The interviewer will then watch how well you're doing within the next 4 hours. If you hate it you can ask to leave as the company completely understands it's not for everyone, and likewise if they don't think you're doing too well then they will ask you to leave to save you the effort.

After the 4 hours is up they will take you to a personal interview if you are successful.


Overall I really did enjoy it and I was really gutted that I didn't get the job. But for now I got a job working for Topshop, perfect for me as my favourite shop is Topshop and I love fashion just as much as make up!! So for now we'll leave make up to the blog and apply again in the future.

I will be posting up a lot more fashion related stuff in the near future as well as beauty, so keep the eyes peeled!!!

Any questions about my audition, feel free to email me!

I'm going to be moving up to Plymouth and working for Topshop!!!! I promise I will work more on my blog when i'm there! :)



BIG NEWS!

by on November 05, 2012
I'm going to be moving up to Plymouth and working for Topshop!!!! I promise I will work more on my blog when i'm there! :)

First of all, I have to say. I was a bit naughty and stole this photo off the holy grail of google, as I just didn't think I would ever do a review of hair dye....so I didn't keep the box! This isn't the colour I used either, it's just the only decent sized photo I could find!!! I used the plain "Brown" colour. I thought I'd do a review on a hair dye, which I guess is a bit boring, but how many people stress over what hair dye to use every day? I know I did. So I thought this would be helpful to some of you!!

The first thing that I found odd (not bad, just odd) is that the dark brown in this range looked a lot darker than the regular brown?! Say whaaaat?! So I picked up the regular brown as I wanted a really dark colour, but I didn't want black.

The oil based formula is meant to make your hair look shinier and better condition, to be honest I didn't see much of a difference, but then as I use argan oil anyway, maybe that's why?!

I'm super happy with this dye and will definitely be using it again. The fact that is is ammonia free is spot on and the huge range of colours makes it a lot better than some other dyes too. It also has a velvety texture, therefore means that when you put it on your hair, it isn't going to run all over your face!!

Pros: Colour range
Colour effect
Oil based - good for your hair
No ammonia
silky look to your hair

Cons: Price maybe? £6.99 for one box when I use 2 is a bit pricey!
Don't rate the conditioner that comes with it
That's about it really?

Olia hair dye review!!

by on October 25, 2012
First of all, I have to say. I was a bit naughty and stole this photo off the holy grail of google, as I just didn't think I would ...

So the other day I thought I would treat myself to a little something that I personally thought sounded crazy. Absolutely mental. A foundation that you wear to bed? Enough said, I wanted to try this bad boy. Then I realised the hefty price tag of £45 for 4.2g of product, and thought I would try and find a smaller pot so I don't waste that amount of money on something I really hate! I therefore managed to find a smaller 2g size pot to try for around £20.
It's surprising though, how little product you use, so i'm pretty sure this is going to last me a fair while!

The experts say that this is " a groundbreaking nighttime mineral treatment that is powered by proprietary RareMinerals ActiveSoil complex. Clinically proven to reduce the appearance of pores, increase luminosity and deliver fast cell turnover resulting in miraculous skin renewing benefits."
It is said that it will  make your skin look younger, even out the skin tone and replenish skin while you sleep, it also comes in 3 colours, clear, light and tan. I got the light as I'm stupidly pale and though "why go for clear when I can look beautiful going to bed?!" 
Sounds stupid I know, but when you stay at your boyfriends house regularly this is just a massive confidence booster!!

I've only used this a few times, and I can notice a difference in my skin already. My cheeks seem more radiant, my pores appear reduced and make up looks so much better, i'm losing a lot of redness and it is really helping with those hormonal red spots on my chin! 

The only bad part about this (except for the price) is that the majority of women that use it will have a crisis period. (a week or so where your skin breaks out). This might sound horrific, but it needs to push all the bad stuff out before it can start working! All in all, I think I would be happy to pay this amount for the full pot if it carries on the way it is, however i'm going to need to try it a bit longer to REALLY have an opinion, so expect a follow up review!

This is my face and the look that I will tell you how to get!! My secret weapon?
This Witch BB cream:

So basically, let me explain to you what happened. Remember that Sleek BB cream I raved on about in a previous post? Well, my skin got really bad for the past month or so, and I couldn't work out why, I hadn't been eating different/getting stressed etc, so by process of elimination I came to the conclusion it was the Sleek BB cream breaking me out, 3 days off the stuff and my skin is back to normal! Few red marks here and there, but almost completely clear!!!! Ok so let's get back on track.
This BB cream is fast becoming my favourite product of the moment. I put it on after cleansing, toning and moisturising, and I can honestly say that nothing has ever made my skin more perfect! The formula is coloured but once on the skin it is clear, basically providing no coverage, but when you wear it, it looks pretty damn flawless! I'm not one to leave the house without make up, however I think that I could leave the house just wearing this and no foundation!

It also has an spf in it, therefore protecting your face from sun exposure. Not what I really need for winter, but hey ho, it can't harm! The fact that it also has Witch hazel extract though means that it helps with spots and problem areas. Maybe there is a theory behind this and why your skin looks perfect after?

Anyways, in this photo I also put a thin layer of MAC studio fix foundation, Maybelline FIT powder, MUA blusher in shade 1, Maybelline Colossal mascara, and Collection 2000 red lipstick!! I would highly recommend this product to anyone!! Whether worn underneath foundation or on its own! I'd love to know other peoples thoughts too!! 

That's all for now!

Here we have the Bloom "fair normal skin tone" gradual tan. This product was in the sale for £1.99, and I guess I was happy to pay that, but when I found out the original price was £16, I couldn't believe it, so I was really excited to try the magic of the tan! Now i'm not normally a girl that likes to tan, mainly because i'm so pale I reflect the sun, however I like a bit of a gradual tan to give me a glow. I already use the Dove gradual tan, and I 100% swear by it, I love it and would never change it, but to give this a go for nearly 90% off? Why not. 
I'll tell you why not. It's rubbish. I really wanted to like this because I think the Bloom make up that I have tried is fantastic! But this just did nothing!!! Bearing in mind i'm extremely fair anyways, gradual tans are normally like spray tans to me, but this did not show up in the slightest. All I ended up with was very yellow insides of my fingers. I looked like I had a disease. It doesn't moisturise that great, and is very highly perfumed. I'm guessing this is to mask the normal "fake tan biscuit" smell, but it's just too strong and not nice at all, and as for moisturising? It's very oily and soaked in super quick but also dried super quick and didn't leave behind much moisture. I guess it has nice packaging though?!
All in all, this product is a 1/10, purely because I may use it one day as a normal body moisturiser!

p.s - Sorry if I seem to have given up on my blog, I haven't, I've just been very busy lately and haven't had time to pee let alone blog!!! :(

So today is only going to be a quick post! Superdrug has a huge sale at the minute on Bloom products, ranging from just 49p up to £2.99 as a maximum! Everything I have here is between those prices. I got everything here for £16, (also got an eyeshadow brush too). The products normally range between £10 - £20 per item so this was such a bargain. I just love the packaging, look how cute it is!!!! The eye paints are my most intriguing purchase, I can't wait to try them!!!!

Bloom haul

by on September 09, 2012
So today is only going to be a quick post! Superdrug has a huge sale at the minute on Bloom products, ranging from just 49p up to £2.99...
So the Superdrug that I work in has the MUA pro range coming in. So I had a little rummage and found some excellent bargains, baring in mind that if you spend over £8 on MUA at the minute, you get this fantastic eyeshadow palette of 24 eyeshadows completely FREE, so if I were you i'd get down there.


Now I was completely obsessed with MUA at one point, and to be fair I am still pretty impressed with their range, I think for the price you can't go wrong, and their undressed palette is one of my most used eyeshadow palettes. I will always prefer my more expensive eyeshadows though as I do believe you get what you pay for, but i think MUA is better than the likes of bourjois etc, it's kind of hit and miss at times but like I said, for the price it's totally worth it.


I do have to say though, these gel eyeliners are AMAZING, they stay on and don't budge all day, so i'm incredibly impressed with that.


Also, who can't go wrong with a clearance?! The blue and white twist up eyeliners were 49p, the gosh lilac eyeliner was 99p, the gosh eyeshadow stick (apparently waterproof) was 1.99, the famous concealer was 10 GOD DAMN P, and the Gosh "dazzle dust esque" think was 1.99.


Swatches in order (apart from the concealer) quite excited to do a purple and blue smokey eye with these. The concealer is amazing as an under eye concealer!!!

I'll be back soon with a Bloom haul, keep those peepers peeled!!

This week, I had a bit of an issue. The superdrug that I work in is having a major store refit and we are losing tons of the make up, UM WHAT?! So naturally I picked up a few things from the stands we are losing, and I am so glad I did. 

The first thing I got was a BB cream by Sleek, and I have to say that this is the singular BEST BB cream I have ever tried. I like a lot of coverage and this BB cream probably gives the best coverage out of them all. I decided to give it a go after Lydia from cut throat beauty gave me a sample of hers to test. This colour is very pale (just what I needed) and seems to give me a flawless finish ones paired with my famous powder. (I'm getting to that in a minute). Overall, I would say that this gives me a similar effect to my M.A.C studio fix foundation, similar I said, not exact, so I won't be getting rid of my M.A.C anytime soon.
A new offer that we have on is that ALL Maybelliene is 2 for £10. Even the new Colossal smokey eye mascara. I therefore picked up the new mascara and a colour tattoo in shade 'on the go bronze'. I must admit, I LOVE the colour tattoo in this shade, and I think that it is a perfect match to my eye colour. However I am a bit disappointed with this mascara, I was expecting it to have an extra oomph, something a bit different, but when I used it, I found that it was basically exactly the same as my other original Colossal.
The 2 nail polishes on the left are by Accessorize, which we are sadly losing and I am totally and utterly gutted. Accessorize make up is such a stunning brand, everything looks so vintage and pretty, and to top it off, it's really good make up!! I picked up the colour romance (on the left) and molten copper (on the right) How beautiful is molten copper?! I can't wait to use it. 
Now, from Famous I have a No shine face powder in shade 'mmm bop' and a blusher in shade 'scandal'. I am totally in love with this powder, it is honestly the best powder I have ever used, and I have used A LOT. It is also the only one I have ever hit pan on. So when I found out we were losing it, I naturally stocked up...I now have 3...oops. This blusher is also fantastic, it is extremely pigmented and such a beautiful colour. The tiniest bit covers my whole cheek, so i'm pretty happy by this purchase!!
Swatches of 'Scandal' and 'on the go bronze'.

I've also re ombred my hair with my extensions back in...maybe i'll show you in the next few days!!

Ciao Bella,

Thought i'd jump on the bandwagon and let y'all know how much my face is worth, my work face that is, it seems to range depending on how lazy I am, and what kind of style i'm going for. I say work face because this is the face that I went for at work today, whereas normally I can range from full out there make up to practically nothing. Here 'goes...

This is my face I'm going to add up for you:

Moisturiser - Garnier pure - £4.10
Primer - 17 photo flawless - £4.99
Foundation - M.A.C studio fix £21.50
Concealer - Rimmel stay matte - £4.99
Under eye concealer - Famous - £4.99
Powder - Famous No shine powder- £4.99 
Contouring - Sleek contour kit (I think it was £8.99)
Blusher - Famous in the shade 'Scarlett' - £4.99
Lip liner - Elite in the shade nude (got in the clearance for 99p) 
Lipstick - MUA in the shade bare (shade 14) - £1
= £61.53

That's actually pretty cheap I think compared to my other make up, but I guess for work I don't need to spend too much. This just shows me how much make up I actually wear, oops! 

I'd love to see everyone elses!! I tag you all!!!

Introducing Lady Gaga Fame. The first ever black liquid fragrance, where the liquid is actually black but turns transparent when airborne!!

The Bottle:
The bottle is typical of Lady Gaga, the claw shaped lid on the top looks more like a weapon than a lid to a fragrance, however I think although the black and gold looks very vampy, it also looks quite classy when you compare it to the likes of Justin Bieber, Britney etc.

"Black like the soul of fame, but invisible once airbourne"
General Info:
The fragrance comes in 30ml for £23.99, or 50ml for £29.99, so you might aswell pay £6 for the extra 20ml. It is Eau de Parfum which means it is a strong fragrance. 

The Smell:
"Tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of Tiger Orchidea, with a black veil of incense. Pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops."
This is the statement on the box, that could have only been written by the Lady herself. 
The scent is built around 3 main accords, these are 'dark, sensual and light.' 
The romans in the 18th century used Belladonna as a poison, so when I first heard of this fragrance I thought um WHAT, every aspect of Belladonna is poisonous, maybe she's trying to kill us, but clearly not as i'm not dead yet.

The fragrance is classed as fruity and floral, however I think it has more of a sweet smell than floral. I think it's sweet, but not TOO sweet. I don't think it's typical of Gaga though, I was expecting it to be very musky and manly, but I infact LOVE it.

Weird fact: The perfume makes the skin feel very moisturised after, I wonder if this is to do with the black liquid as no other fragrance does this to me?

My only downside: The fragrance doesn't last long on the skin, on me anyways, this may be different on other people.

I just love it!!!! Let me know what you think!

I went to Boots and felt almost ashamed of myself for bringing custom to the enemy twice in the same week. (I work in Superdrug). However sometimes it's just near enough impossible to not pop in and see what offers they have when they're only next door.....so here's what I got:

Blusher - 17 in shade 'China Pink', A primer (Also by 17) and this free 'Get bronzed kit' (Bronzing kit free when spending over £5.99 on 17)

I only really bought this for the bronzing kit to be honest, i'm a sucker for a free gift! But i'm actually in awe at how amazing this primer and blush is!
This is what I got in the kit:

Eyeshadow in shade 'statuesque'. I am in LOVE with this eyeshadow, it's a very pinky based brown with a silver shimmer, works perfectly with my skin tone and dark eyes!! I will be using this a lot!
Cream blush in shade 'Bronzed'. I'm not sure how much i'll use this as i'm a bit too pale for bronzers to work properly, and i'm not keen on cream consistency blushes.
And last but not least, a Lip Gloss in shade 'In the nude'. I think the name lies a bit here, as it comes out exactly the same colour as it looks on the tube, which to me is a pinky brown, not a nude, but hey ho, I love it!

Maybe I will do a look using these at some point in the future?

Renewing Moroccan Argan oil from Boots - £6.99

Today I went into Boots after work to see what offers they had compared to Superdrug, and I found this beauty. I've been dabbling in the idea of Argan/Moroccan oil for a while but I wasn't really convinced by the Tresemme and L'oreal versions, and was too stingy to buy pure. So as you can imagine, when I saw this, I jumped and bought it without a second thought, until I got home and panicked it was going to be rubbish, but oh my god I was completely wrong. I used this and my hair has never felt better, baring in mind I wear extensions as well, this was a pure god send!! I will now NEVER be without this.

Here is a code to get you a free graze box on www.graze.com - L1C29FP

I went into my local Poundland recently, I never normally shop for much in there but I had some time to kill so thought I'd rummage around for a bit. I am so glad I did!! I found these 3 fantastic Revlon lip glosses, or "lip glides" as they like to call them, for a pound, of course. I did also find other rimmel, collection 2000, and even some Stila powder puffs.


Revlon left to right:

Shade 17 - Patent leather pink
Shade 09 - Grazed Almond
Shade 55 - Peachy sheen

The other 2 lip butters are by Gosh, and I got them in the Superdrug clearance section for £3 each. These are just as good as the Revlon lip butters and are a lot more pigmented than you'd think!



Swatches Top L to R - peachy sheen, patent leather pink, and grazed almond.
The bottom is a swatch of the Gosh in 30 - Barbie, and above it is shade 32 - Angel.

Also, a weird comment, but the lip butters by Gosh smell amazing!!!!

Ok, it was my birthday so I was allowed to buy myself a present. So I got these shoes. Now, do these look like the same pair of shoes to you?! Do they?! Yes they do, but they are in fact most definitely not the same. The pair on the left are from daisystreetshoes for £33, and the pair on the right are Topshop allegra's and are around the £70 mark. I thought i'd give daisy street shoes a go and I am ridiculously impressed. I'd say if you're a larger size in your shoe, go up a size, for example if you're large size 6 go for a 7, if you're a small - normall 6 these would be perfectly fine. They are so comfy and don't even feel like you're wearing heels, so go get em!

So this is me, I thought I better introduce myself officially. The one thing people said about this photo is that I have perfect eyebrows. Now, i've had this compliment before, and even though I heard it before, I still thought it was weird, until I started to think about all the horrendously awful eyebrows I see every day, I then realised mine are pretty rad, top tip, use eyeshadow to fill your eyebrows, not pencil. Eyeshadow is a lot less harsh and so easy to find a perfect shade to match your hair/eyes/skin tone.



I found this beauty not so long ago (maybe a week?!) It's the new Famous brow kit. This, has made my make up routine so much more compact, it's so easy to use and they even give you tweezers to make your eyebrows extra perfect. It comes with a beige shade, to go under the brow to give it more definition, a blonde and a brunette. The brunette is perfect for me and I use it every day! It also comes with brow gel down the centre and a double ended slanted brush. I think it was around the £6 mark? Definitely worth buying!!!



That's all for now,

Ciao Bella!!

The first item that I bought was the M.A.C fix+. Now when I bought this the label said £13.50, but when I checked my receipt it only said £12.50, so I was pretty happy with that anyways. I had never used this product before so thought i'd give it a go, and I fell in love with it, it's really refreshing and actually does what it says and keeps your make up set and looking freshly applied all day! Definitely going to re purchase when I run out, although, it's a huge bottle!!




The second thing I got was the Studio Fix foundation in shade NW15. For those of you that don't know, NW means neutral warm, whereas NC means neutral cool. So winter time may call for NC15 for me!! This is hands down the best foundation that I have ever used, this teamed with the fix+ makes me look completely airbrushed, I have used so many different foundations and never really found one that lasts and this is a total lifesaver. I will never be without this foundation again!! It was £20.50, and I bought the pump for £3.50. It really is worth every penny!!

So I got my June beauty box from She Said Beauty and let me just say....omg I was SO happy with this one!!! 

Let's just start off with this, the Ginvera bb cream in nude coverage. When I first got this I wasn't expecting miracles because I like to stick to foundation, I like a lot of coverage. I was also expecting this to be stupidly dark because I am so pale, but I have to admit, it is THE single BEST product I have EVER used. I actually left the house without foundation, my skin looked PERFECT. I am definitely going to be purchasing this in the near future and replacing my foundation for it! 


I actually really liked this perfume, and it's only a tenner! Get on it!


So I didn't really like this product because I didn't like the smell, BUT I gave it to my mum and she adored it.


I am very happy with this little gem. Mischa Barton lemon zest body butter, this is a full product and smells beautiful, it's a small size aswell but you only need a little bit of product, great for taking away with you!


This is a St Tropez FULL SIZE, perfect legs bronzing spray. Now considering I am very pale, I don't normally use tanning products, but this was amazing, I love it and would definitely re purchase!


I got these lashes in my GlossyBox already so wasn't too happy, but a girl can never have too many eyelashes!!

I would just like to bring to everyones attention, how flawless the accessorize make up range is. The other day I bought 3 nail varnishes and they are the most gorgeous colours! I already have an eyeshadow palette by Accessorize and it is possibly some of my best eyeshadows!!





So the 3 colours I got were: Navy Ink, Pink Space, and Tuscan Clay! I think Tuscan Clay is a great every day colour, and I think that Navy Ink is a beautiful evening colour, and Pink Space is a perfect mix of orange and red for a summer look!

Yaaaaaay so today I got my first ever Glossybox and it is the June 2012 anniversary edition!
This box was of course the normal £10 a month and £2.95 postage, and I can tell you now , it was totally worth it. 
Just for anyone that doesn't know, this is the anniversary edition because it is Glossybox's 1 year anniversary this month! Now, let's move on to showing you what I got...



How cute is the balloon and extra little present for us all in this months box?! (It's a compact mirror)


Now I must admit, as I have said before, I do not like perfume samples in beauty boxes, but I was SO happy to be receiving these samples. I don't like the one on the left but the one on the right....I just have no words...It's perfect, and a 50ml bottle in House Of Fraser is only £49...now I know this is a little pricey, but can anyone say FREE parisian shopper with any purchase over 50ml?! I WILL be purchasing this...praying that I get enough in my pay check eeeek!


On the left is an all in one hair treatment by "Uniqone." This is 9ml sample, and is a leave in spray mask. A full size is 150ml and is £13.99, which REALLY isn't pricey in the slightest seeing as what it is! It is a repair for dry/damaged hair, shine and frizz control, heat protection, silkiness and smoothness, hair colour protection with uv/uvb filters, de tangler and easier to brush and iron, long lasting hair styling, adds body, AND split end prevention. I used this tonight and yes, I WILL be re purchasing. It is the best treatment  I have ever used on my hair and I have only used it once!!

On the left is a set of false eyelashes worth £8.95 per strip, (of course they are full size, they haven't just given me one strip or something) and are by "lets go lashes". They are 100% human hair and re usable. Wait what....re useable lashes?! Love it.


Now this product I was a little disappointed with. It is a sample size (full size is worth 10.95 +) but it was in totally foreign languages so I didn't really understand what to do with it, but I read on the card supplied it is a face cream/body milk by Weleda. It smells of roses....and my nan. Not too keen! It also made my skin feel the same as what most high street moisturisers make it feel like!


This is by Noble Isle and is a "summer rising bath and shower gel." Again, it's ok but just not amazing, I've smelt better!
