Review: LUSH American Cream Conditioner

Conditioner is something I've never really been fussy about, mainly using whatever my mum had bought that week. However since I've had my hair cut shorter, keeping it in good, soft condition has become my top priority. 

When I did my awesome LUSH haul, I decided treating myself to some good conditioner would definitely be worth my while. The conditioner I chose was American Cream - a milkshake thick, sweet smelling delight that quickly became my favourite LUSH product ever.

Review: LUSH Hair Custard

I recently did a huge £45 LUSH haul, with Hair Custard being the product voted for on Twitter to have the first, full review. I'm actually really glad this product was chosen first, as I have some things to say about it which I felt were better to just get out of the way rather than leave until the last review.

Hair Custard is described as an "eggs-clusive Oxford Street hair dressing for fighting static and adding moisture and shine" with an absolutely dreamy scent. But in this case, is the proof really in the pudding? *cringe*

A £45 LUSH Haul

Oops, I did it again. I slipped and accidentally splurged £45 on some lovely LUSH goodies. I didn't even have a legit reason to in all honesty (my last big haul was due to my fabulous A Level results) but that's never stopped me before *wink*.

This time I was simply looking to buy some more solid shampoo and ended up being enticed in by the rest of the website. I did manage to order the solid shampoo I was after, but also topped up my basket with conditioner, hair 'custard' (whaaa?) solid deodorant and some dusting powder. Bang tidy.

Review: LUSH Cup O' Coffee Face & Body Mask

It's about time I reviewed LUSH's cult classic Cup O' Coffee face and body mask as it's a product I've come to use more and more regularly since first purchasing it back in May.

Before I start on the review, can we all just appreciate how the above picture is absolute LUSH porn. Just look at that little bubble. It looks so good, it makes me want to scoop it out and cover my face with it. Luckily that's what you're supposed to do, so I don't seem too weird for saying that.

How To Be The Perfect Blogger

I got my nails done as a treat for myself on Saturday after a semi-hectic week at work, and it actually made me giggle how having nude pink nails made me feel like a 'real' blogger, despite not really being able to even type with them.

It got me thinking about what other blogging stereotypes there is, something I first touched on in my 'I drank coffee, am I a real blogger yet?' post wayyyyy back in March, so I came up with this post poking fun at all the blogger stereotypes out there.

Review: High-End Skincare With Dr Botanicals

I'm a huge skincare junkie, so I was really excited when I received a parcel of skincare goodies* from Dr Botanicals. Tearing open the paper, I was surprised to find myself with two, full-sized pots of daily moisturiser and night cream. They were certainly not sample sizes.

I checked their website and was almost dumbstruck to see the pots were over £100 each, so do you know what I did? (And no, I didn't stick them on eBay)

Review: Too Faced Born This Way Concealer in 'Very Fair'

Yay! It's time for the third review from my £100 Too Faced Haul, and this time you've voted for the Born This Way concealer to be reviewed and swatched in full. 

This concealer is a relatively new product which was only released in June this year and is something I was dying to order as soon as I could.
