Wonder Woman Wisdom Lipstick


Bring out your inner Wonder Woman with Wilkinson Sword!

If you’ve seen my previous post then you’ll know I received the shade Power with the purchase of the Wilkinson Sword Intuition razor. Today’s post is all about the shade Wisdom.

Wonder Woman Wisdom Lipstick

Whilst Wisdom wasn’t my first choice (I’d picked Wonder) the promotion allowed you to select two options out of all four shades  Wonder, Wisdom, Power and Grace.

The shade is a gorgeous deep red, whilst it glides on the lips it does take a few applications to get an even colour with better pigment and just like Power it does transfer easily.

There’s a subtle smell of Shea Butter which acts as the moisturising property in the lipstick and makes it comfortable to wear on the lips.

The lipstick is cruelty free and a list of ingredients can also be found on the Wilkinson Sword website.

 

Battle of the Body Butters!


Body butters come in a large range of scents, brands and sizes etc.. and as I have acquired quite a few different ones I thought I would do a mini post on which one is essentially the winner and best of all they are all small prices!

Body Butters

1) Superdrug Coconut & Sweet Lime: As you may have read from a previous review I love this body butter for it’s tropical fresh scent and packaging, it’s also currently on sale for £1.98 instead of £3.99! The only disadvantage compared to the others is it’s large size, it’s 200ml so isn’t exactly compact but it does have a usage span of 12 months.

2) Tesco Extracts Cranberry & Pomegranate: This is quite different to my other butters as it is purely a fruity scent which makes a nice change and at 50ml is a nice compact size. It’s usage is longer than Superdrug’s at a whopping 24 months. This was a gift which also came with a shower gel.

3) Tesco Extracts: Honey & Shea Butter: This was love at first sight, the butter smells gorgeous and was in a nice little set for £2 with a shower gel, again it is 50ml with a 24 month usage period. The only problem I find with Tesco Extracts is that the scent doesn’t appear to last long unless you use the shower gel with it.

4) Boots Extracts: Cocoa Butter: Another great scent which seems to last and has the same ml and usage time of the Tesco butters, this again was in a gift set with a shower gel which I brought in January, currently it will be on the 3 for 2 on the Boots Christmas guide.  In comparison to the other pots however it’s label doesn’t look as appealing.

And the winner is….

Superdrug Coconut and Lime Body Butter

Superdrug takes the crown with the refreshing scent of coconut and lime!

Although all the products are cruelty free which is a bonus I feel Superdrug’s labelling and scent stands out much more  although I would recommend all the products reviewed.

What’s your favourite body butter?

Leafy & Lovely Review


Leafy and Lovely Hand CreamLeafy and Lovely is an exclusive brand to Superdrug (I believe) and can be found in the Christmas gift aisle ranging from bath to hand products, the hand cream I will be reviewing today was picked up for £2 and is in a 100ml bottle.

The scent is quite pleasant and fruity, it isn’t overpowering and has a ‘zesty boost’ from grapefruit and lime for a citrus scent, the product overall smells quite fresh and the hand lotion itself has a good consistency and isn’t too heavy or runny like some creams can be. I adore the packaging as it’s quite simplistic but fun, I couldn’t bring myself to throw the box away just because of it’s design.

It is cruelty free which is always a bonus and the 100ml bottle is sure to last throughout Winter! Although the size isn’t exactly compact for travel it is still a great item to use as your hands are left feeling so soft thanks to the element of shea butter.

I hadn’t heard of this brand until recently and wondered why as the products smell great and have a nice small price tag; whether you are buying for yourself or a friend I definitely recommend you pop to Superdrug and pick up this brand!
