back to the 90's with impulse

Recently I was set the challenge by Impulse to create a 90's inspired look to coincide with the the revamped version of the 90's Vanilla Kisses fragrance. Never one to turn down an opportunity to have some fun, and being a 90's baby myself, I created what always comes to my mind when I think of 90's make up which is a brownish red lip along with ash toned brows and a lot of orangey bronzer. Of course I just had to use a velvet scrunchie and a plastic tattoo choker too, I even went as far as using a pearlescent nail polish shade which is about as 90's as it gets. I had so much fun putting this post together, it definitely made me wish that I could go back in time to before smartphones and when beanie babies were all the rage.

I'd definitely recommend checking out the Vanilla Kisses fragrance, as a girl who isn't a fan of overly sweet scents I love how this is a musky yet sweet vanilla rather than being sickly and unwearable. Selected Impulse fragrances are currently half price at Superdrug, although this one won't be around for long as it's limited edition to celebrate Superdrug's 50th anniversary.

tweezerman gear men's essential grooming kit

As we all know, there are trillions of beauty products for the girls, but male grooming products are still few and far between. Tweezerman have set out to give male grooming tools the shake up that they so desperately needed and have newly launched their Gear range aimed at the modern man. I'm a big fan of the products and the fuss free simplistic designs of the products, they have a complete masculine feel meaning that no man should ever have an excuse for stray brow hairs or bitten down nails again. There's also no room for excuses of losing any parts of the kit either as it comes with a handy pouch to keep everything inside of. Push the man in your life in the right direction of becoming perfectly groomed by giving him the gift of this kit and treat him to a nail filing and eyebrow plucking session. The set includes; pointed tweezers for ingrown hair or splinter removal, facial hair scissors, fingernail clippers and nail file tool with a cuticle pusher edge.

lush sweetie pie shower jelly

Every once in a while I come across a product that I think to myself everyone needs to try and find out how wonderful it is, this shower jelly by lush being one of them. I've tried near enough every type of Lush product yet only got round to trying the shower jelly out when it came in a big box of goodies that I got as a birthday present recently. I tend to splurge more on bath bombs and bubble bars as I definitely prefer a long soak to a quick shower, that being said this little pot of jelly has made shower time ten times more enjoyable. You simply drop the jelly into your hand and lather it all over your body, it's pretty much a wibbly wobbly solid version of shower gel. I like to turn the shower away from myself so that it doesn't disintegrate in all of the pouring water meaning it will last much longer. It has the scent of juicy cherries which I'm completely addicted to, it tricks the mind into thinking you're washing with an actual slice of tasty jelly since it smells so god damn good. Once you're done you just pop it back into the tub ready for next time, the packaging states that you can even put it in the fridge or freezer before your shower if you're after a cooling sensation. It's a tad pricey but I reckon mine will last me for a fair few weeks of showers or longer if I decide to save it to use only ever now and then. Try it, I promise you'll love it.
