Flexitol Lip Balm

Flexitol Lip Balm
"For severely dry lips - Alleviates dryness and discomfort"

As the weather has gone from a heatwave in October to freezing I thought I would share this little gem I came across last year. If like me you suffer from severe dry lips, yes ladies, that does include looking like you've been drinking Cherryade look (come on, you all know it) then this is a great product for you.

I randomly picked up this lip balm on the off chance after loosing my Nivea stick and was at the point where if felt as if I'd been using sandpaper to exfoliate my lips. I didn't expect a great deal, I suffer with dry, sore, chapped lips every winter without fail and a lot of lip balms promise the earth but have minimal effect.I started applying this in the morning when I bought it and a few more times in the day, by the next morning there was a huge difference. There was a lot less dryness and flaking of my lips (sexy, I know) and they were less red and irritated. By the end of day two they had pretty much cleared up. As I've suffered with this for as long as I can remember and it normally takes me about a week minimum to clear up my lips, I was very impressed. As soon as my lips had cleared I went back to using a normal lip balm and just apply it at nights in winter (or anytime it is cold... Most nights then.) If anyone else is a sufferer of severe dry lips or soreness I'd recommend giving this a go and hopefully it will work as well for you as it did for me.

Godefroy Instant Eyebrow Tint

Godefroy Instant Eyebrow Tint
Godefroy Instant Eyebrow Tint - £4.77

NOT for use on eyelashes
This product contains PPD

The kit contains:
  • 1 - 4oz developer
  • 4 - brow colour capsules
  • 4 - hair colour applicators/mixing sticks
  • 1 - mixing cup
  • 1 - instruction leaflet

"Enhance your eyebrow colour for 6 weeks eliminating the need for eyebrow make up. No more daily application of eye pencils or eye powders. Covers grey 100%"

I bought this Godefroy eyebrow tinting kit in medium brown months ago from Amazon and completely forgot about it, after coming across it again I thought I'd give it a go. I was a little nervous about this not knowing anyone who had used it or if it would go right but it was really simple and easy to use.

The whole process takes roughly under 5 minutes, you mix one capsule with 1cm of the developer, mix it up and off you go. The amount of time you leave the colour on depends on how dark you would like to go, the instructions give you a colour times so you can decide which shade you would like to achieve.

I paid about £4.77 for this product and I imagine that is considerably cheaper than a visit to a salon. The process was fast and easy and I'm very pleased with the end result. My eyebrows are brown anyway but the ends are lighter for some reason. This means if you look from a distance, I look like I have half an eyebrows (annoying aha). The pack contains 4 applications and it claims to last 6 weeks so I think this is a real bargain, and let's be fair, we all love a bargain!

I first seen these lipsticks on Faye's blog and couldn't resist the temptation to buy one (or three) for myself.

I've never been a huge fan of Rimmel lipsticks, the first time I bought one was in a vibrant red colour and although it was really soft and smooth and easy to apply, it smudged. Smudged red lipstick up your face is great at Halloween but not too great on a night out ha. The Kate Moss collection claims to give a lasting finish and they are a lot better than the lipstick I bought before. Unfortunately they are still a little bit smudgy to what I prefer on first impressions but so far so good. I'm pretty happy with my new purchases, the packaging is lovely and the colour pay off is really impressive. The lipsticks are £5.49 each but are on an offer for 3 for 2 at Boots and Superdrug.
