Review: Lush Shower Jellies


The Joy Of Jelly - This shower jelly smells absolutely amazing. This is my favourite smell out of the three. Its not too sweet. This could be made into a Lush solid perfume & i'd definatley buy it. This lathers brilliantly & creates really soft little bubbles. The smell lingers slightly (it's not very strong & not over welming). The appearance is pretty it does vary as in the picture it's hot pink & purple. But my ''The Joy Of Jelly'' is purple & lilac. This is so easy to use, just cut peices from your original peice. Then crush a peice into your loofah or rub the single peice onto your body, being careful not to drop it. This is really relaxing & soothing. I would rate this product a 5 out of 5 as i just love this. The only downside is this could melt. So i'd advise Lush buyers to get a metal tin or a zip lock bag to store your products in. I would recommend this to anyone, but i believe this is more of a girly scent. This has sadly been discontinued :(. If anyone loves this or has this please tell me what you think about it. 

Sweetie Pie - So i'm going too be honest this is my least favourite shower jelly. As it's too sweet for me. It smells of black currant. It's a dark purple. This can be used on your body or hair so this is a plus for some people. This would be good if you were travelling you would only need one shower jelly for everything. It lathers really well. But can slide about. So be careful not to drop it down your drain. A little goes a long way, so i'd suggest to everyone to cut your shower jellies into peices. Store in a Lush tin or a zip lock bag. I don't think i'd buy this again as i preferr ''The Joy Of Jelly'' & ''Whoosh!''. This is £3.10 per 100g. 

Whoosh! - This is a very awakening scent. I think women or men could use this shower jelly. I really like the scent, it smells really fresh & citrusy. Orange,lemon & lime. Shower jellys are extremely easy to use. You either crush a peice into a loofah or just use abit of shower jelly & rub it all over your body until you get a good lather. This is a pretty deep blue. I would suggest  cutting your shower jellys into peices & storing small bits in a zip lock bag in your bathroom, so it doesnt get everywhere. The price is great value considering how much you use at one time. Whoosh! is £3.50 per 100g. Store shower jellys in a zip lock bag as it can melt. You can either use room temperature or put in the fridge just before you use in the shower for a cooling effect.

Cybercandy Haul & Review.

My first experience with
The website is great to navigate. You have a brilliant selection of sweets to choose from. From all over the world. I purchased all sweeties above with standard shipping which cost £3.99, this is quite a fair price because i did order a lot. I ordered Monday 24th & my order arrived Thursday 27th. It come in a cute little box with the company website & a robot on the back. The box was full of lovely colourful packaging. It was all packed very securely, they have really taken their time to make sure it arrived safely. What is also amazing they have stores in Covent Garden, Camden, Islington, Birmingham & Brighton. You can also join the Cybercandy community on Facebook, Twitter & even look at there blogs. Overall i am very happy with my first experience with Cybercandy. I will absolutely be ordering again. You can also get a 10% off  first order code by mailing one of the lovely Cybercandy team. I really hope this helps people make their minds up.

Review: Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser With Cottonseed.

This product does exactly what It claims to do. You need the smallest amount. All you have to do is wet your face, get a small amount ( the size of a 5p) & then rub all over your face in circular motions so the foaming action takes place. Then rinse the cream like solution off with cool water. This leaves your skin feeling very soft & well cleansed. Ingredients include: gysophilia: this creates the cleansers foam. polymnia: this keeps the skins moisture for longer. cottonseed: softens the skin. tamarind: keeps pores unclogged. purifying micro-pearls: purifys the skin. I believe this product is well woth It, as it made a visable difference & when i felt my skin it felt lovely. This is £14.67 for 125ml. I would recommend this product to people with combination skin. It will last you months. Tell me your experiences with Clarins products.

Review: Clarins Instant Eye Make Up Remover.

Clarins - Instant Eye Make-Up Remover. In my opinion this product works brilliantly. It's an oil based product. It's not harsh on your eye area or face. It only takes a small amount to remove all make-up. This even takes off waterproof make-up without making your face feel sore. The description says: firstly, the cleansing translucent phase melts away eye make-up using volatile oils, secondly cornflower & rose extracts soothe, soften & moisturise. Doesn't sting even the most sensitive of eyes & is ideal for contact lense wearers. Dermatologist & Ophthalmologist tested. Ingredients: rose & cornflower extracts. 

All you have to do is get a cotton pad pour a small amount of the make-up remover on & glide softly over your face to remove. Once you have finished there is an oily film left on your face, just dab with cotton to take it off. It is £16.50 for 125ml. I would recommend this to anyone. Of any age. If you are worried about paying the money & not liking it ask your local Clarins counter for a sample. They will be more than happy to help. I'm speaking from past experiences. I don't work for Clarins. I hope you all found my review helpful. Thank you for reading.
