Lush Leap Frog Review

This was my first ever real Lush experience and i loved it, i have never been one to use things in my bath as im a quick in wash and out kinda gal no muss no fuss as they say.

This was nice i had a glass of wine ran the bath and popped this bad boy in!




Wow what a sigh i actually really enjoyed watching it and couldn't wait to jump in.


So the details are as follows

this is a Limited style Lush Bath Bomb for Valentines day - yes i know it has passed.. this is the second year that they have released this popular little fellow and i know why.

It does a spectacular bath time display and the red lips have a little something extra that Va Va Voom that makes them last the longest they are made with coca butter so you know your skin is going to feel soft and smooth!

I also had a wonderful little surprise there was a note that was left ( i found it attached to my leg) after the fog had dispersed from prince charming. What a fantastic little gimmick.

I have since gone on a little trip to lush and brought some more goodies to try which i cant wait to tell you all about.

The frog is £2.75 and still available on the Lush website here https://www.lush.co.uk/product/5807/Leap-Frog-Bath-Bomb

So fancy bathing with your prince charming?

I would i recommend this product and I'm glad it was the one to take my Lush virginity!

Disclaimer: This was sent to me as a PR sample all views are my own and it has since given me a Lush addiction.

Batiste Cherry Review

Big fan of Batiste and dry shampoo in general, i am not going to lie sometimes I'm a little lazy and just need a freshen up when i don't have time to wash my hair.

This spray always saves my life

I also like Cherry's, eating them and smelling them so when i heard that Batiste had brought out a new cherry smelling dry shampoo i could not wait to get my hands on it.

The product works like every other one of there dry shampoo's it gives the allusion your hair is clean and it works the only difference this one has is the smell its Divine and i love it.


I have actually finished mine now ( sad face )

and i will be buying another one!

They are £2.99 each and are worth every penny you can find it in the usual places boots and superdrug and i would definitely recommend you get one to try!


Love Aimee

Disclaimer - i was given this as a PR sample to try and review, all views are my own i would have brought this product anyway as i have heard great things!

MUA Contour liner Review

MUA first and foremost is a fantastic brand they always surprise me with every new product they release and this is no different.

The liner comes in a good variety of colours for you to try and play with.


I had a good play with shade 4 - sea blue and Shade 3 Fresh Mint.

Personally for my skin tone sea blue did absolutely nothing for me at all! however i absolutely love Fresh Mint, it is a colour i would never think of trying but love how it makes my eyes just pop.

The Liners are a twist out pen style with an angled liner, this not only looks great but makes applying it so so much easier.

The versatility of these liners is fantastic, you can use it to define, smoke and shade your eyes.

Lasting powers is the only thing i don't like i wish it would last longer i managed to get a good 3 hours before i personally felt it could do with a top up but for £1.99 i really cant complain.

They really deliver with the ease of application and colours as it comes in 7 shades!

i really want gunmetal so that is next on my list.

you can get this in store from superdrug for £1.99

have you tride there new 3 in 1 liner pens?

Bush Balm Review

I am a lady who waxes and now epilates, i do all the crucial areas that a woman needs hair removal on and i hate the after effect, rash, soreness, just plain inconvenience really.

Enter Bush Balm


Firstly what an amazing name i mean bush balm its direct and to the point and it does exactly what its meant to do.

You use it after waxing, shaving or epilating its main purpose is to relieve and reduce redness ad well as calming and soothing the area.

The question is does it actually work?

well i have been using it for the past few weeks after both waxing and epilating (i don't do shaving) and i have noticed a serious reduction in ingrowing hairs as well as the are being less irritated.

So the answer is yes it does work!

I love this product, its something i wish i had found years ago and the best bit they do other products too!

The bush balm is £11.99 for 100ml and is worth every penny, i feel better in myself since using it and my confidence has grown I'm no longer worried if it look unsightly!

want to five it a go then check it out here


you wont regret it and i cant wait for there ingrowing hair serum to be released!

Create The Look Full Flutter Lashes

So i saw this look in a magazine i was reading and i had to give it a go, they title it full flutter lashes


So to start off they recomend placing a full set of top lashes on

(i have massive lashes so skippe this part)

Add mascara to your bottom lashes


For this i used Daniel Sandler - Baby Jet Mascara

To paint on the false look lashes on my lower set i used a liner brush and MAC painpot in black

I also used the liner brush to line my inner water line

Finnished it off by putting Bourjois Volume Glamour Max on my upper lashes



On my lips i used

MUA Out there plumping lipgloss in peach shimmer

This was so quick and simple to re-create and i love it, it would be great for a fun girly night out on the town for something a little different.

Latest In Beauty Referesh and Recover Beauty Box

I do love the latest in beauty boxes, they are available for a while and you always know what your getting, so if you don't like it don't order it!


This box i have been on the bench with for a while and finally decided i had to try it no matter what!

They are only £6.95 an absolute bargain!


so what did i get

Tea Pigs Peppermint tea leaves


Not tried this however i will on Saturday morning when i am suffering with a hangover!

£9.95 for 50 tea bags

Figs & Rouge Balm


i cant wait to try this i love balms and in the cold weather you need a good balm. not only that i have heard great things on this!

this was full sized and is £3.49

Monu Recovery Balm


for used after cleansing and toning! I have another Monu product and i do enjoy using that so fingers crossed for this one.

£16.25 for 50ml which i would go and buy

Cosmeto Fruit


Ok so this is a new one for me i have just literally tried it, its very Strong with a sharp taste. You drink it and it apparently is anti ageing, damage preventing and detoxifying.

100ml £50 errr no not to pull that face! however it is currently half price.

Warning when drinking will make you pull a funny face!

Lavera Hand cream


its ok, i wouldn't buy it if given the choice. For a hand cream it doesn't leave my hands feeling nourished or cared for but leaves them needing more cream! = FAIL

£6.00 for 50ml

Actimint


more than a mint? well you get 3 mints, which also double for probiotics. Not too minty and really are just like having a polo ...  £4.99 for a big box with 60 mints in... think i will pass

Note to self don't eat all 3 mints and follow it up with a glass of diet coke! EWWW

Sun Shots

This i wont be using for a while but i will save it for the summer great idea

Then i got to choose 2 samples ... which might i add the next day they upped this to 3 GUTTED!

I Chose

Clarins Multi Active Day cream


firstly i LOVE this cream, i now have so many minis i wont need to buy a big one for god knows how long which saves me around £40

No Wrinkles extreme moisturiser


this i got to put on my forehead only it is a super rich formula and is great for targeted areas. i have a few frown lines i need to combat hopefully this will do the job!

I am glad i got to try this box not everything was for me as you can see however i know what I'm like i would be always wondering what if i didn't get it!


They are also doing a sample of Estee Lauder Day wear BB cream for  you to try, i will write a review on it at some point, however i will need a tan for it as this is one dark sample!



Want to check out latest in beauty ? you can here http://www.latestinbeauty.com/home.php
