Bomb Cosmetics Rose Bazaar Soap

Rose is one of my favourite skincare scents and when I spotted this soap amongst some of the other goodies that were sent to me by Bomb Cosmetics, I couldn't help but rip open the packaging to get a sniff. This is such a happy soap with an amazing scent, so read on to see why you need this in your life!

Product description:
Complex aromas of fresh, dewy rose petals awaken the senses at the Rose Bazaar, let the pure rose and clary sage essential oils balance your soul from within.

Visually this soap is stunning, a beautiful pink/red soap.This can make any bathroom look girly and it can also makes a great little gift option too!
The scent is very natural, it is not that overpowering nor does it smell artificial in any way. If you love your floral scents then you'll definitely love this one! I can detect the rose as well as the clary sage, It smells floraly but fresh, nothing too heavy which is great! The concoction of ingredients works very well together which makes this a very light and refreshing scent.
This lathered up pretty well too, there were alot of soft and floral-scented bubbles which cleansed my hands well. My skin was left feeling squeaky clean and oh-so soft. The scent also lingered on for a bit which was a plus.
This soap comes in slices and it's quite big so it will last you for quite a bit. I don’t find the square shape too user-friendly, so whenever I want to use it, I cut a small piece off, this way, the rest of the soap won’t get wet and thus will last longer.
This soap is handmade and it's made with vegetable based glycerin and natural essential oils. This means all those that favour natural products will love this!
This looks and performs quite well and I am so tempted to try out the other scents too.
Overall, I thought that this was a rather lovely soap, it ticks all of the boxes for me and it is worth trying.

MayBeauty Incredible Face Mask

Pamper sessions are a must! I love a good ol' face mask and I quite enjoy using the various types that are available (clay, cream & peel off)
I was recently contacted by Maybeauty, asking if I would like to try out one of their products, the Incredible Face Mask*, what made me say yes was the list of claims that this one little mask could do.

Product description:
The Incredible Face Mask deeply cleanses your pores and removes dead skin, making your skin cleaner and fresher than ever.
Use the face mask regularly and keep your skin free from impurities. Prevents acne, removes blackheads and whiteheads, takes away dead skin cells and impurities. Makes your skin cleaner, smoother and healthier.

Now I had never come across Maybeauty before but I do remember Maylash so I was thinking maybe these masks are from the same brand and guess what? they were!
A few days ago,myself and my other half decided to give these masks a go. Applying this was so easy! The face masks actually came with a handy brush for application, the brush had flat bristles so I was able to apply the mask evenly which I usually find tricky without using one.
The mask is a clay/peel off hybrid which is what I loved! The effectiveness of the ingredients and the super quick removing procedure thanks to the peel off ability. The mask is also very black yet smooth and the texture was perfect, neither thick nor runny. It had a fresh spa-like scent which was a bonus!
After a good 40 minutes, we could feel as if the mask has done it's magic, the mask felt as if it had gripped onto every single whitehead/blackhead and picked up all of the oiliness.
The beauty of this mask is that once you peel it off you can see exactly what was removed, for me and my partner the skin issue was oil and a few blackheads. We were looking at each others face and complimenting on how matte, bright and soft our skin looked! This face mask means business!
With peel off masks, you may feel a slight discomfort and since this mask had really gripped onto the skin, we both felt it ever so slightly. However without that, the results wouldn't of been evident. No pain no gain right? It also did state on the packaging that 'avoid applying near or on the eyebrows as it can remove facial hair'.
I was so happy to see that the excess oil around my t-zone was gone! I think that with prolonged usage, I can easily keep my skin looking at it's best.
Do you also want to know what the best thing is? Maybeauty have kindly given me a lovely 30% off just for my readers! If you are interested in trying this out for yourself simply click here - link and the 30% will be removed directly! 
You can now say be gone, to oily skin and impurities!

I was sent these face masks for reviewing purposes, All comments are my own. Many thanks to Maybeauty for this lovely opportunity!

I Love... Cosmetics Coconut & Cream Body Lotion

If you know me well, you'll know that I love Coconut scented anything! Be it lip balm, body lotion or even cake!
I have been trying out a few products from I Love Cosmetics and after loving the hand cream and bubble bath I knew it was time to try out a body lotion in my most favourite scent, Coconut & Cream!

Product description:
Feel idyllic with a burst of sweet coconut and velvety cream.
All our new body lotions include coconut oil & shea butter to help leave your skin feeling gorgeously nourished & fabulously smooth. Oh and for the record our yummy products are Paraben Free and pH Balanced.

Packaging-wise it is a definite crowd pleaser! The easy to use, built in pump makes applications quick and easy, there's no wastage and you are not left scooping any product out which can be tedious,win!
The fonts/colours and clever labelling makes this a delightful product to pick up and read. It's eye-catching and very informative.
The ingredients used includes: Coconut oil and Shea Butter which insures nothing but soft, silky skin that is left feeling oh so hydrated and comfortable again. Now I'll be honest, right after a shower it would seem like a chore to apply some of my previous body lotions because it would literally take ages for the cream to soak into the skin, I would also be left feeling greasy than hydrated. This however soaks into the skin so quickly! I was amazed that I didn't have to fan myself to help the lotion set into my skin.
The texture of the cream is quite thick but it honestly feels air-whipped, almost the same consistency as a freshly whipped ice cream you get from the ice cream van. I absolutely love that even though it's thick, it acts like a really thin cream which makes applying this a breeze.
Now onto the main part, the scent! I really wish I could eat this because it smells exactly like Coconut and Vanilla cake! (insert heart eyes emoji here) The scent is quite strong so I personally like it. If you aren't too keen on heavy scents then steer clear of this. I have to also add that even though the scent is strong, it in no way smells artificial, it just smells of freshly baked coconut cake in a bottle! Dreamy!

Yet another winner from I Love... Cosmetics! I cannot recommend this enough! It leaves your skin feeling very soft, hydrated and smelling like some sort of a sweet treat!

Check it out here - link / available to buy online or instore at Boots, Superdrug and even Primark! £2.99*
