Brilliant Botanics and The Power of Social Media!

I love discovering a new product at a decent price which hasn't been adorned with OOT advertising or PR. This is the type of product that is discovered by a blogger or YouTuber and quickly becomes a "must have". For example, Lollipop26's discovery of GOSH's "Darling" lipstick - who knew? Probably not even GOSH!

I think I first caught wind of Botanics Soothing Eye Make Up Remover from Hele Says's blog and it's slowly trickled through my Blogger dashboard ever since.

I'm not onto my second bottle of this stuff and would definitely recommend trying it to everyone.

It's cheap (I think £2.91 from memory and often on a 3 for 2 deal), does the job swiftly and easily and is gentle enough for the most sensitive eyes. It doesn't leave a dry feeling on the skin around the eyes and neither is it too greasy. An added bonus is that is smells nice and is very economical to use. In short, it ticks all the boxes at a sensible price; what more can you ask for?

To that end, I've decided to test out a couple more Botanics products: Organic Rosewater Toner, Skin Brightening Cleanser and Cleansing Mousse and shall keep you informed on my thoughts on these products.

Has anyone else tried the above products? What did they think?

I'd love to hear what your best online discovery found through Blogger or YT
has been!

Some things on your "to do" list will always be more fun!

Hey everyone,

Hope you've all had a great week!

I'm getting ready for one more week of work before setting off on our holiday! Those who follow me on Twitter will know that my "to do" list is growing seemingly larger; however, let's be honest, some things will always be more pleasant than others.

For example, deciding what nail varnish to wear on holiday! I'm thinking of something in the raspberry/coral/pink hue spectrum which can be easily topped up and will go with a variety of outfits.

The options I have are (L-R):

Collection 2000 35 "Dynasty"

Barry M 305 "Pink Flamingo"

Barry M 279 "Bright Pink"

Collection 2000 34 "Hoola Hoop"

Revlon 093 "Tropical Temptation"

Max Factor 215 "Pearl Maron"

No7 (Unknown)

Claire's (Unknown)

NYC 226B "Madison Avenue"

Advice please ladies! Decisions, decisions!
