The Library of Fragrance Gingerbread Cologne is dark, Sexy and Utterly delicious!!

Hey fellow beauty lovers!

The Library Of Fragrance is not just any old perfume company. Since 1996 they have been producing well known scents that surround us in our everyday lives, scents that we know and love and that bring memories, love and comfort into our lives.

A lot of the fragrances are single notes, so that you can mix and match to find your own unique blend, that is true to you and you can make up your scent to suit your mood. I have tried a few of these fragrances now and have found them so true to scent it is unreal.

The Snozzberries taste just like Snozzberries! to quote Willy Wonka!

I have tried Sea Salt, a real favourite…living by the sea, it is a scent of home, so I love to wear it. I have also tried Pina Colada and I just wanted to drink it lol .. it was so fresh, fruity and creamy.

The scent I chose this time is Gingerbread, because I just love that warming, sweet, caramely, rich, deep, sexy scent .. it is just pure heaven! Ah I could eat my arm off it is so delicious! It gives me a sense of self and real comfort too, as it is a fragrance I have known all my life, as my father was a master baker and fresh baked gingerbread was my favourite.

The scent is so true to life, it is mouth watering and everyone has asked me what it is I am wearing, as they get a whiff of the delicious, spicy scent. I definitely chose the right scent for me!

Another scent I feel some of my friends will love is Gin & Tonic, as it is such a fresh, clean fragrance and again very true to what a real gin and tonic smells like.

No matter what memories or fragrances you want to find, The Library of Fragrance should have whatever it is you are looking for .. you can check out some of the scents on offer with this month’s Libbie Club offers here

There is Vanilla Ice Cream, Gin & Tonic, Baby Powder and Fresh Laundry to name a few ..and they are totally true to their names which I love. So if you find one you like, then why not give it a go? See for yourself and surround yourself in a scent you love, that fills you with happy memories, because that is what the Library of Fragrance can do for you!

Bye for now

Anne Semonin The Daily Musts – Coffret

Hello you gorgeous lot!

Anne Semonin is a pioneering, high end, Parisian brand. It aims to bring vitality, freshness and nourishment to skin, no matter what your age, with the approach that everyone’s skin is unique and everyone’s skin changes daily.

This brand has been on my wish list for a while now, as it can be quite pricey and a considered purchase. This affordable Daily Musts Coffret, allows you to try this brand’s holistic approach to skincare and how they can tailor it to your needs.

So this travel set of 4 masks (always use masks on cleansed skin for best results) contains:

Exfoliating Mask infused with Red Seaweed and Kaolin clay. It sloughs off old skin-cells, dirt and oil, freshens and brightens your complexion and is great for both oily, congested skin and dry skin alike. This has left my skin baby smooth, matte and ready for my morning skincare routine.

Gel Mask Enriched with Marine Trace Elements and Uplifting Essential Oils. This mask energises tired, older skin-types (yes please). It gives a great radiance boost to your face before a night out, as it gives firmer, glowing skin. It definitely gives skin and mind a boost from the off ..it is fantastic!

Mineral Mask Full of Marine Trace Elements & Minerals. This mask can be used in several ways: of course as a face mask, but also as a stand alone eye mask, a booster mask and even a cleanser, so a very handy one to have on the go! Perfect for congested, lifeless skin, it detoxifies, balances and brightens your skin, leaving you with a lovely, healthy glow.

Last but by no means least, is the Cream Mask, which is a lovely rich, nourishing mask to feed the skin. It has jojoba, shea butter & marine minerals and it takes down redness and restores calm, to sensitive or damaged skin. It is a powerful, vitamin infused, hug of a face mask. It will soothe broken capillaries, redness and re-plump tired skin. It is like a big, fluffy, comfy blanket for the skin .. I love this, it’s so soothing and it smells so comforting too.

You can custom blend and mix these masks to your own needs. They are incredibly balanced and put the right nourishment back into your skin as they go.

What I will also say, is that I got 2 masks out of each pot. This makes these beautiful, luxury, high end masks £2.50 a go. This in my book, for what they are, makes them a very affordable treat for someone who loves skincare, like myself.
