So I got this a while back, loving the smell in the shop. (Huge Lush fan, by the way!) I was so excited having never used any Lush hair products before, so I instantly used it by scrubbing it onto my hair and rubbing it into my hands then combing through my hair. It didn't feel like much but I had high hopes. I got out of the shower. And nothing. My hair was dry. It didn't have that conditioned feel and I actually climbed back in and re-conditioned. Disappointed. It sat in a tin for a while when I was sitting in the bath and remembered someone saying it would be a good shaving cream. As I was just about to shave, I gave it a try and I am telling you, this is a great shaving cream! Probably could get better, but I'm very happy that I now have a way to use up the bar.
Ok, so I'm going to start by saying why I wouldn't buy this product again, because I love it. But I've had it for a few years now and haven't even used half of it up, so it'll be a while before I have to purchase it again and I don't think I could go through another tub! But this product is, quite literally, Lush. It smells really girly and sweet and delicious. I LOVE the fact it's edible! I use this product by wetting my lips, dabbing my finger in the scrub to get some on then applying it in circular motions around my lips. Then I wet my finger and scrub it in, still using circular motions. Then when I'm finished I lick it off my lips and apply a lip balm. It sort of makes my lips a pink colour which I like, as it is subtle. I use it every night and I simply adore it. A wonderful product from Lush as always. I reccomend it.

So I ordered this online looking for a small tube that could fit in my school blazer I have pros and cons for this product: Pros: It moisturises really well, It lasts about two hours on my lips and is a cute size. Cons: It melted really easily, and when rolling it up half a chunk just fell off. It's very delicate. Overall, I would get this product again but putting it no where near heat!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit

This was my first EOS lip balm, a few months after I got the Lemon one. Upon opening the package, and smelling the balm, my initial thoughts were: "Awesome packaging, really convenient so I don't get balm on my fingers. Creative idea.. oh.. the smell. It's a bit... plastic-y." So the smell is like summer fruits, honestly, but you can detect a bit of a plastic smell in there. I'm not sure if it was just mine or whatever. However, the balm is great quality. I've had it for almost a year and haven't used it up yet which is amazing. Another thing i love about it, is that living in England, it gets pretty cold. So all my lip balms tend to freeze up and get harder to work with in the winter. This was not the case, it was always soft and ready to apply on my lips. Lasts quite a while though I did have to reapply. I strongly reccomend these in all flavours, absolutely amazing. The lemon smell is my favourite, I am forever getting compliments. BUY IT!
So I got this years and years ago and only recently discovered it in a drawer. The one thing I will say about this fragrance, is that it is just summer. I wouldn't wear it in Winter because it's so floral and girly and just smells like summer. The packaging is quite cute and simple, I love the pink. However this is definitely for younger girls, in my opinion. It's a sort of 'first perfume' for teenage girls I think. You could go and try it out, however when i use it up I will not purchase again because I have more favourites. If you like this, but want a sort of more mature version, I would suggest Lacoste Touch of Pink or Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. My two favourite perfumes, still very girly and sweet and fresh.
As my second Essie nail polish after Lilacism (A huge favourite), I was very excited about Butler Please. It's a gorgeous sapphire colour that I got as a present. I put it on and forgot a top coat, and assumed it would be ok for a day and I'd just put it on in the evening. After a day of barely doing anything, I came home to find every nail chipped. I was startled and touched it up, but I realised it wasn't that easy. When other nail polishes chip, I can cover it up easily. But when I tried to coat over the chip, the whole nail just went gloopy and disgusting. I removed it straight away and put Lilacism back on. Overall, BP is a very disappointing formula from Essie. It's a lovely colour but difficult to work with. I would not buy it.
Essie's Lilacism was my first Essie out of two. I have OPI and China Glaze, and honestly just preferred Essie. The formula could be seen as streaky but is easily fixed with a base coat. I find Lilacism is my go-to colour. I pick it up at any time of the year, even now in the middle of winter it's on my nails! I just love to look at it and I will DEFINITELY buy another bottle when this one is finished (It almost is!) Takes about two coats and hardly chips at all. Go buy it!
