B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

A good lip scrub is essential if you suffer with dry lips or if you want to prime your lips for a smoother applications of your lip products.

Today’s review is all about the B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub. If you aren’t aware then B. is the cruelty free, vegan and vegetable friendly makeup and skincare brand by Superdrug.

B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

This particular scrub has no flavour which is a shame as I love the E.L.F mint maniac scrub. On the first use I found it didn’t actually do anything, this is one of those products where you have to work away the top layer first.

I love that it’s in lipstick form again which makes it quick to use on the go, however, the product itself is pretty basic including its packaging. It’s not a bad product it’s just not a brilliant product either.

Currently it’s on offer for £3.33 instead of £4.99. I personally wont be picking up this scrub again as there’s other brands selling scrubs for a similar price including Barry M who have now launched new flavours.

Barry M Sale Haul

Autumn is finally upon us which means gorgeous nails in hues of reds/purples etc… Ive always wanted some of the Barry M Autumn nail polishes that came out back in 2014, having failed to find them on Superdrug I decided to check out the official Barry M website and came across their last chance sale which conveniently had some of those colours I wanted!

All of the colours above were on sale for £1.99 each! The Matte Topcoat and All in One Topcoat, Basecoat & Nail Hardener were £2.99 each and not part of the sale, I just grabbed them anyway.

The stunning colours which im sad to see leave are Chilli (GNP33), Kiwi (GNP 25), Guava (GNP15), Mustard (GNP31) and Blue Grape (GNP17). They could well still be available elsewhere like Boots but im not 100% certain…

Ive always loved Barry M but ive never actually tried the Gelly Hi Shine nail paint before so it will be interesting to see how well they last without chipping.

 

Clothes Show Live 2013

Clothes Show HaulClothes Show Live 2013 is the first one I’ve ever been to, on this occasion I had free tickets but I’ve always wanted to go! The fashion show was great and was themed ‘You’re Invited To A Weekend In The Country’ which featured dancing, a live performance from Stooshie and 7 scene changes which showcased all the clothes perfectly. I went on the Friday which was the first day so over the course of the event which runs until Tuesday there will be different artists performing at the start of the fashion show.

The NEC which showcased the event was much larger than I could ever imagine! Lots of people were in attendance and a huge variety of stalls were selling jewellery, clothes and make up and for those interested there were also careers stands available to help those wanting to get into fashion.Barry MBarry M was a popular stand and it wasn’t unusual to see the crowd carrying these bags, and for £10 it was such good value. Im not sure if all the bags contained the same colour  items but mine had 2 glitter pots in purple and brown shades which were quite cute, 5 nail varnishes which I loved apart from the dark pink and limited edition neon green colour but that’s purely because they were too bright for my liking. The limited edition ‘Lilac Foil; is such a lovely shade and ‘Pink Iridescent’ is glittery but the Silver varnish is perfect for Christmas!  It also comes with a pretty pink lipgloss, a mascara and 3 eyeliner crayons in baby blue, glittery gold and another lilac shade, the goodie bag is perfect for any occasion and contains so many items! A lovely touch to this was the fact that all the items came in a little Barry M PVC handbag as shown in the photo which meant that the items stayed together nicely in the larger shopping bag.

Models ownNext up in my goodies is Models Own which like the Barry M bag came with quite a few bits and pieces! Apologies for the bad photo, with this set came 4 nail varnishes which 3 of were my own choice,  I opted for all glittery shades which were ‘Banger’ a mix of blue, green and purple glitter, ‘Absinthe’ which is a green glitter polish and ‘Obsidian’ a black glitter shade. The free varnish already in the goodie bag is ‘Show Stopper 2’ which features Clothes Show Live on the lid so it’s possibly an exclusive shade to the event but im unsure, like the Barry M set this contained eyeliner pencils in white, brown, black and glittery black, 2 lip balms in Tangerine (the round pot) and Bubblegum, a small mirror which was a nice touch, a nail buffer (not in photo) and 4 double ended eyeshadow brushes. This set was also £10.   

So Susan and Jelly Pong PongJelly Pong Pong and So Susan were small gift bags believe it or not, they came with 4 items each in cute little gift bags (2 for each brand) this were £5 each and look so lovely, admittedly I have never used these brands before but for £5 why not? I am unsure if the brands are linked to each other as I had 2 lip and cheek sublime for So Susan but one was in the Jelly Pong Pong bag… To begin with Jelly Pong Pong came with a 2 in 1 eyeliner and eye shadow in plum, a bronzer duo, a ‘Wide Awake’ pallete to brighten complexions which I cant wait to try and of course the cheek sublime

For So Susan again for £5 it had the lip and cheek sublime, a pure luminizer, an 8 hour cheek stain and a eyeshadow pallete, for such a low price it gives a variety of different uses and best of all none of the products are tested on animals!

RimmelRimmel London was one of the first goodie bags I brought due to seeing lots of people having them but being honest I wasn’t very impressed with it. For £5 a small bundle was dropped into a large bag and by the look of the poster it seemed a full size foundation was included but it was only a tiny sample, the package was called Retro Glam and features a lovely burgundy shade of ‘Desire’ nail varnish, Scandal-Eyes Mascara and a full bottle of fake tan which I gave away as I don’t use fake tan, but maybe the fact I don’t use fake tan made it disappointing along with the sample size foundation, had it been the regular size then I would have been happy enough with the goodie bag.

Elle MagazineElle Magazine had a small goody bag for £3 which features this months edition and January’s edition of the magazine, a black kohl eyeliner and a OPI Nail Varnish which you could have in red or a gold crackle effect, the only problem with this goodie bag was that it was quite heavy to carry! So if you are going to the event id save this till last as unfortunately I brought it right at the start and was stuck carrying it around for a good few hours.
