Apivita Products: the propoline shampoo and hair mask is THE best I have ever used, beats Liz Earle by far. The hand cream , cleanser and serum are also delightful to use, I love them so much it's nearly all gone. Apivita is a natural Greek brand and I'm so glad I discovered them, I first heard about them on Tali's blog and now can't stop recommending them to friends and family.
Neal's Yard Essential Oils: I use these mainly with a candle burner to help Esra breathe easier, poor baby nearly always has a congested nose and eucalyptus, ravensara and lavender really helps.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils: I LOVE these pencils, if I'm in a rush, which is now almost always I just swipe a coloured eyeliner on my top lid and it makes me feel polished even though I'm not! :)
Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-1 Wash & Mask: Picked this up a couple of days ago, and realise how much I missed it. I love using it as a mask when I'm having a bad skin day, which is today surprise surprise.
Making My Own Baby Food: Esra is now 6 and a half months, wow how time flies. I'm using Annabel Karmel's food cube tray and some pots from Boots to freeze pureed fruits and veggies. Yesterday I made her strawberry, pear and mango puree and a mixture of spinach and carrot. Yum yum yum!
Gold By Giles for New Look: This range is a total fail, 99% of the products aren't pigmented and rub off very easily. The packaging looks "OK" from a distance but when picked up is very lightweight and flimsy. I feel like they spent too much money on marketing for the products and not enough time on the actual products. This range would be suitable for early teens who are just starting out in make up which is probably the target market, but in my opinion 13 year olds shouldn't be wearing this much make up anyway. Bottom line, I really don't like this collaboration, and am disappointed that 'Giles' has given his name to such a bad collection.
The new packaging from Avene for Tolerance Extreme Soothing Cream: I am a HUGE huge fan of most Avene products, however this tube has some new kind of air tight packaging, yes it's more hygienic but when I go to dispense some of the cream too much comes out and goes flying everywhere. It also results in me applying too much to my face as I don't want to waste the product and then I get clogged pores... Ahhh a big fat fail.
What are you loving and hating right now?
Disclaimer: The Apivita, New Look and Avene products were sent for consideration for review, I wasn't paid to blog about them and this is obviously my honest opinion as always!
