Smooth Care

It’s not very often you read a blog post by anyone talking about shaving gels.  So I thought I might break the norm and tell you about a recent discovery.

Boots Smooth Care in the scent Fruity Melon and Kiwi was a emergency impulse buy.  I had a personal training at the gym and didn’t fancy my trainer seeing my prickly legs, so I want to get something cheap which got the job done fast.

When I picked this up it was on offer at £1.59 from the usual £2.50 price.  Either price is good for me, I’d quite happily pay £2.50 for this.  Why?  Because it’s a good product.

My legs feel so smooth after using this.  I’ve used so many different gels and soaps on my legs before and I’ve never noticed a silky smooth affect before.  But after using this, I’ve just wanted to keep touching my legs.

The lathe is good but the smell of the foam is the best bit.  It’s yummy and lingers on the skin after you’ve finished and dried off.

So if you’re looking to get your legs looking sexy and smooth for the summer ladies (and gents perhaps) then pop to Boots and pick up this bargain!

Miss Sporty | Popcorn

Yellow nail polishes can be tricky to pull off.  I always find the consistency of most brands too thin... even after two or three applications.

This Miss Sporty canary yellow polish called Popcorn is a yellow shade which i have been lusting after. It's the perfect creamy yellow, not too bright... not too pale or neon - just perfect.

So I love the colour... what about the application I hear you ask?  A little streaky to apply even after three coats, which is a little frustrating. However if you are willing to live with a little bit of a patchy finish... then you cannot go wrong with the £1.99 polish.

Flower Pharm | Wild Rose Body Wash

I do love finding a good old bargain!

Whilst browsing down the beauty aisles of Tesco, I spotted a brand I'd never seen before called Flower Pharm. I'll admit it was the Cath Kidtson-ques theme of the packaging which made me walk on over to it.

Then... I sniffed it.


If you know me well enough, you'd know I love a floral rosey fragrance.  This stuff smells like the real McCoy...  A vase of fresh cut roses has nothing on this. Maybe 10 vases might come close.  It smells so strong, this may be over powering to some but I personally love a strong floral scent.  You can smell it linger on the skin.  It lathers up well too which is another bonus.

There are four different scents in the Flower Pharm family, including this one.  There is also an array of goodies to choose from ... body wash, butter, scrub and bubble bath.  They all have a reasonable price tag also... Pretty inexpensive at around £3.99.

I'd certainly buy this again! Thumbs up Flower Pharm!!!!

Cath Collins Devon ~ Oh La La Orange Flower

When I received the email asking if I'd like to sample a fragrance, I was a little hesitant.  From my past experience, I am a bit rubbish at discussing scents in depth - so I was a little concerned when it came to penning this post.

What landed on my door step was this fine beauty.... Oh La La Orange Flower* by Cath Collins Devon.  In all honesty I have never heard of Devon based Cath before, but it is good to experience new things.  The great thing about CCD is all her products are produced here in the UK down in Devon.

When I first opened this I thought the packaging was very cute. A candy cane theme popped to mind with the colour concept and style.  The bottle is sleek and simple with the frosted glass affect, which I like.

So what do I think of it... 

Well initially, I thought it smelt rather cleaning product-ish.  It may sound harsh to describe it in such a manner but this has a overwhelming citrus, grapefruit, orange blossom and bergamot scent with a hint of floral lily and jasmine (again two more strong scents) - it reminded me of a product I'd use to clean my bathroom.  

That isn't a bad thing - I'm merely commenting on the strength and choice of scents used. I am not used to using something so intense and strong.  It actually reminded of Jo Malone and the strength of her products.

Anyway, I'm not generally a zingy citrus perfume lover and after initially turning my nose up at this... It has grown on me.  I find this works a little better for me once the initial spritz has died down and warmed on my skin. The scent lasts on the skin for a good few hours... However you do need to reapply after a while.

You can pick up a 50ml bottle for £35.50 online here at the CCD website.
