Hello Beauties,

Happy January .. well hopefully!

Working all over the world, they have brought together their passion for beauty & make up and their wealth of knowledge of the best quality natural ingredients.

The Instant Love Mascara, is fabulous. Enriched with ceramides to restore and strengthen lashes, it gave me carbon black lashes, that felt conditioned, thick, glossy, with minimal effort. I was really impressed with the length and volume that just 2 coats of this mascara gave me.

There is no clumping or stickiness and the more I think about this, it has to be the easiest to apply mascara I have used in a long time. No mess and no fuss, just fantastic results. I love the brush and how it catches the lashes making sure all lashes get evenly coated.

I shall be moving over quite a few of my mascara stash in favour of this one! It stayed put and didn’t budge and it was pretty easily removed too, unlike some on the market now, that are near impossible to get off.

I am genuinely very impressed with this mascara, it just oozes quality and a fantastic finish, it really does. I shall be looking into this brand a lot more!

There are a lot of mascaras out there that charge a mint, but are pretty much bog standard. This is a cut above and perhaps that is because the brand is still very niche and they have to work harder to compete, but the quality is definitely there.

 

There is 20% off The Lin & Lo Instant Love Mascara with this month’s Libbie Club and you can find it here: January Libbie Offers.

That is it for now folks

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

Molton Brown Oudh Accord & Gold .. A touch of Paradise!

Afternoon fellow beauty lovers,

But i took advantage and thought i would try something different, i had the Pink Pepperpod shower gel before but was not  blown away by it at all but this is different, very different … so many words pop into my head with this one i just love it ❤ ❤ <3!

It is a very different scent to what i am used to, its deep, mysterious, woody, very sexy, warming, heady, decadent, very beautiful, unisex, if you have ever walked along a spice market and been mesmerised by the scents and resins there you will love this, you can see the little flecks of 24 Carat gold all through the bottle!

It smells even better on the skin than in the bottle, its perfect for the cold winter nights as its very mellow and warming but its the richness of the Oudh that makes it like no other, Eastern promise and mystery also spring to mind, its a very rich amber nectar of Spicy Nutmeg oil, Elemi Oil which is extremely soothing,  rejuvenating on the skin, for aching muscles and calming on the mind, Gold Leaf extract which is fantastic for your skin and your joints and then the Oudh Accord which is deep, rich and woody, it smells and feels expensive and decedent and i am in ever so in love with it.

The perfect scent for Autumn/Winter although i wouldn’t mind smelling of this gorgeous scent on a hot summers night either! It is a very unisex scent, some might say masculine but to me its unisex and i love how the scent has lingered on my skin, it is a most uplifting, deep, sexy scent that i am  drawn to, going to have this  in my home for a very long time!
