The 5 Day Deodorant?! | Perspirex Comfort Deodorant Review!*

Hello!


In previous posts in the past, I've been quite open to being a bit of a bargain hunter and often buying things like toiletries and make-up only when they've been on offer. You'd be amazed as well what bargains you can get from Poundland!

The downside of being thrifty like that is that you often miss out on the new products that come out as you're normally distracted. A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Perspirex, a company who produce high-range antiperspirant and was asked if I wanted to trial one of their deodorants. At least I was like "surely it's not as good as my Nivea" BUT Perspirex's deodorants claim to be effective for 3-5 DAYS. Yes, days. Obviously I couldn't pass up the opportunity to test that out for myself!

As I said above, Perspirex specialise in deodorants for people who suffer with excessive sweating and although I don't particularly suffer with this problem, I still thought I would give it a go, especially since the sun has started to make an appearance and is making it near impossible to stay cool so I suppose every little helps!

When offered the product, I decided to go with their Comfort deodorant are it's formulated to provide effective sweat and odour protection while the comfort skin care system CPX ensures an extra good skin feel with minimum irritation. Perspirex Comfort is the perfect choice for those who suffer from only occasional excessive sweating which of course, is me! Perspirex Comfort is also free from perfume so even people with the most sensitive skin can still use this.

Obviously, as Perspirex's biggest selling point is their amazing 3-5 day lasting power, it's probably the main reason you're still reading this review. Well I've been using the deodorant for a couple of weeks now and been testing it through full work days and trips to the gym and I have definitely noticed an absence of that horrible sweaty smell. 

Lasting longer than 1/2 days though? I honestly doubt it! It's not that I don't have faith in the deodorant but I don't think I could go that long without a shower! For people who do suffer with excessive sweating, I have no doubt that it would be definitely up for the job. Even after the hardest workout ever, I still didn't smell! The red face and breathlessness is another thing altogether.... 

If this sounds like the perfect deodorant for you, then you can check it out here on the Boot's website!

Life Update ft Living Room Ideas!

Hello!


It feels like it's been a while since I actually sat down and blogged. Yes, posts have still be posted but they've been scheduled for a while so I've allowed myself a mini break. Not because I'm fed up of blogging, but because A LOT has been happening in my personal life and I thought it would be best to talk about it all on here!

Firstly, I now own a house.

Yes, an actual house. Not like a Wendy house you had when you was little. A big 2 bedroom house. All to myself.  

At first I was completely overwhelmed with it all; appointments for mortgages, solicitors bills and then the whole redecorating process! It's been a bit of a nightmare, but now I'd like to think I'm out the other end and I can actually start enjoying it and let my inner interior designer in me come out to me.

My first job will be decorating the living room/dining room as I want that to be the main room of the house so therefore it will be the most important room! I have been getting plenty of ideas from Pinterest so I thought I would include a few below.

If you're a first time buyer or have recently brought a house to, please let me know any tips and tricks to help me! :)

Getting Ready for Winter with Bklyn Luxury Fur Bobble Hat Review!*

Hello!


It feels a bit silly writing a review post about Winter hats in the middle of July but since the typical English "Summer" is in full force (which means it's miserable) I thought that it was actually quite fitting.

Being comfy and warm in the colder months is essential to me and will also go out searching for the perfect product to do the job for me. To save me hours of walking around my local shopping centre, a fashion clothing company called Bklyn contacted me and asked if I liked to review one of their luxury bobble hats!

Now excuse the fact that I look like a dork trying to take a decent picture of me wearing the hat but I didn't realise how high my furry bobble was! I couldn't get it all in the picture!

After doing a bit of research into the company I found that they specialise in hats and accessories made using only the finest Italian merino wool. My hat was created from the finest quality wool and is made and hand finished in England. Its softness and timeless elegance are just two characteristics that make this fabric so unique. Merino fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend far more than traditional, coarser wool fibres. This makes Merino wool feel soft and luxuriously gentle next to your skin and kind to your hair and after wearing it for a few hours, I honestly couldn't agree more.

The only thing that I wasn't keen on was the real fur bobble. I am totally against real fur (even some faux fur creeps me out) so I would have preferred an option to have maybe a wool bobble instead! 

Overall, it's a nice little hat however the fur really put me off and I probably won't be getting much use out of it. I do know however that they will be soon releasing a faux fur range which I would definitely be interested in checking out! If you're interested you can check out the rest of their range here!

UKLingerie Presents The Dream Girl Baby-Doll!

Hello!

Every once in a while, it's nice to go out and treat yourself to some nice, sexy lingerie. Even if you buy it just for yourself to see, there's nothing better then knowing that under your clothes, you're looking hot!

A couple of weeks ago I was given the opportunity to review an item from the luxury online lingerie brand, UKLingerie. At first I was thinking of buying something practical like a T-Shirt bra that I could wear to work but after having a look through their website, I fell in love with the Dreamgirl Babydoll set!

The fabric is gorgeous and the fit of the baby doll is so forgiving for everybody, if you don't feel comfortable showing off your stomach area, which luckily for me I don't. The bra doesn't have anything in the way of support so you really are left to your own devices there girls but honestly I preferred that. It was way more comfortable!

Another problem I normally have when buying lingerie sets is that I'm not perfectly matched with my top and bottom. In other words, my bottom size isn't always the "suggested" size to my top size. Are any women? But with this baby doll both the top and the pants fit me perfectly! That earns UKLingerie double points for that alone!

Yes I probably won't get as much out of it than a T-shirt bra, but like I said above, it's nice to treat yourself to life's little luxuries and even after looking through their website again, I'm happy with my decision! If you want to check out the rest of their collection, you can check out their website here.

The 8 Hour Challenge | Snoreeze Snoring Aids!

Hello!


We all have little embarrassing habits/secrets that we wish we could keep under wraps but I found that since getting with my new boyfriend and subsequently started staying over at his, my secret has come out. What's my secret you ask? I snore. LOUD.

Luckily for me, it's never bothered me that much and it certainly never woke me up but obviously when you sleep with someone in the same bed and they tell you just how bad you are, it starts to become a problem.

A couple of weeks ago a company called Snoreeze came to my rescue and offered me a trial of their Oral Strips and Throat Spray. At first I was a little hesitant on whether they would make any difference but after another sleepless night for my boyfriend, I was willing to give anything a go!

My favourite out of the two products definitely has to the throat spray. Although I liked the oral strips and actually left my mouth nice and minty, they were a little too thick and didn't quickly dissolve on the roof of my mouth as quick as I'd have liked. It made talking quite difficult! The throat spray however I could angle straight onto the back of my throat and instantly felt it getting to work.

The results?

I know I'm a heavy snorer and as I said above that I wasn't expecting much and since I'm asleep, I couldn't really be the best person to judge it. My boyfriend however woke up the next day and said that for the most part of the night, I didn't snore as loud! He did say when I was in deep sleep I was loud but the majority I didn't so I would call that a success in my book!

I know there was many things that contribute to snoring and I probably do have some underlying problem that I need to get sorted but if you're only a light snorer then I would definitely recommend giving one of these products a go. The website is super easy to navigate through and there's different pages to help "diagnose" which product would be best for you!

Eylure Naturalites Natural Volume False Lashes Review!

Hello!


It's been a while since I received the November Glossybox (8 months to be exact) and I've only just got round to testing out my new Eylure Naturalites False Lashes.

I've never really been a fan of false lashes and whenever I have worn them for nights out and parties, I've ended up pulling them off and stuffing them in my handbag. Not good!

I do however love the voluminous, full look they give my lashes so they are a bit of "once in a while" product. As I said above, Glossybox included a pair of the new Naturalites in their November box and although I was super excited to try them, they seem to have got lost in the black hole of my beauty cupboard!

As you can see from the picture above, the lashes are a little noticeable. I did try and blend them in my mascara and eyeliner but it looks like the inner corners do stick out a bit. I'm not sure if this was because of my bad make-up skills or because of the lashes themselves but either way I felt quite fab wearing them!

Not trying to repeat myself, but like I said above I'm not a major fan of false lashes and prefer the easy low maintenance of just using a volumising mascara but on the offer chance I do have a special occasion, I would definitely be using these use again.

If you like the look of these lashes or prefer something a bit more "eye-catching", then check the range out here on the Superdrug website!
