Soap & Glory buff and scrub

I recently purchased the Scrub 'em and leave 'em body buff and thought I would do a comparison with this and my beloved flake away.

They don't smell the same which I kind of like, I mean if you love the Soap and Glory scent you want everything to be the scent. Although I do like a bit of variety (don't we all?) the Scrub 'em and leave 'em has a more light smell and maybe savoury rather than sweet (I am not very good at describing smells so you will have to pop into boots when you next go to smell it). It is also quite floral smelling too! 
Whereas with the Flake Away it is more heavily scented with peach and a floral scent too! I do love the smell of both but I think I might have to go with the flake away as my favourite. 

The texture of both is totally different the flake away is less solid than the Scrub 'em and leave 'em. The flake away has more ex-foliating beads than with the Scrub 'em and leave 'em. 

I think what soap and glory aimed to do with Scrub 'em and leave 'em is to make it more moisturising rather than actually making your skin soft because it only lightly buffs your skin whereas the flake away really gives you a good scrub and leaves your skin feel amazingly soft.
This maybe the reason why Scrub 'em and leave 'em is a little less harsh compared to Flake Away Scrub 'em and leave 'em has sea salt in it and Flake away has sugar. 

Instruction wise with what you are actually supposed to do with the product is great with the flake away it tells you to wet your skin first, then apply in circular motions and when most of the scrub has gone rinse off. Well with the Scrub 'em and leave 'em it does really tell you whether to wet your skin first which is annoying...it just says "scoop out a handful and rub it all over, then rinse" which not really that helpful to me anyway

But all in all probably do still prefer my beloved Flake Away, happy days!
Sorry that was a little long and blah,blah,blah.


Have you tried these both, which one do you prefer?

Bit of a long name right?! But oh well it is the product that matters...I know I only bought this yesterday but I think I have already got an opinion of it and can give you a good review on it. 

Does it have a good pigmentation?
Of course it does in the picture above you can see it on my lips and it is a great colour pay off.

Does it have a good lasting power?
Yes it does you can eat and drink until the cows come home although it does fade just a little after a couple of hours but not that you could notice with a bright colour like "Lovesick"

Is it moisturising?
It is but only slightly drying, but when you re-apply it is fine. I do add a little lip balm first let that soak in and apply the stain.

Do I recommend it?
Yes YES! I think this will be a firm favourite of mine from now on. I might even purchase some more of the colours.

I give this product a score of 9/10


Have you bought this, what's you opinion?
Do you have a different colour?

Another Haul?!


Yes I have another haul for you not much really but thought as I still have got a little bit of my birthday money. I thought I would buy some treaty sort bits.

I really like those bracelets that are cord and have a little charm thing on on them when I saw this on sale in Topshop I had to have it and at £1.50 how can you say no?

I popped into River Island and realised that their earrings are really quite inexpensive and are so cute! I was almost tempted to get some lovely owl ones but decided to set for these ones.

S&G Scrub 'em and leave 'em body buff £2.50
S&G Clean on Me Shower Gel £2.50
S&G Hand Food £2.50
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable balm stain in Lovesick £5.99

I really want to try at least one of each of the mini Soap & Glory products. Since hearing quite a hype about the hand food being crowned the "best hand cream in the world" I thought I would dip my toes (or hands) and see whether it lives up to it hype!

Also loving the "Flake Away" I wondered whether there would be any difference in this "Body buff" which there is a review will be coming soon on this!

I only needed one more thing to get in on the 3 for 2 offer and Izzy suggested since she had this when we went to Black Forest and said it was really moisturising.

I did put this in a recent wishlist post and thought I would buy it after hearing and seeing great things from it. Izzy was wearing it that same day I bought and thought it suited her very well so hope all goes well for me review will be up soon about this too!

I have always wanted to try out one of these donuts to see if they do create a really beautiful bun so for a £1 why not?

Ten from tumblr #1

I made a tumblr account a while back and never really went on it because I did find it a little confusing but now I think I have got the knack for it. I love re-blogging picutres. I have seen a few people do these types of posts so I thought I would join the bandwagon!

Fancy a bit of fun?



I thought this would be a nice idea to do this sometime in September...I won't be away but I thought it would be a great opportunity for new bloggers to get a couple more visits so if your interested please email me at naturalbeauty532@gmail.com. I think what I might do is one to two posts a week with my own posts as well. I thought I might as well do this in advance to allow time for people to write them me to put them up and write a little about what I thought about the post etc... 

Hope to hear from you soon!

Sally Hansen Double Duty Base & Top Coat

This has been my go-to base a top coat. It is really glossy and makes my nail polish stay on for 5-6 days which is amazing! It dries pretty fast. On the strengthening side I am not to sure I have noticed a little difference but not much.

What top coat do you use, thoughts?
Have you tried any other Sally Hansen products?

Sorry this post was a little short but didn't have much to say and I think I expressed my feelings about this product for you to get an idea of what it is like. xx

I am sure you may have seen a little hype about these? Non? Well Barry M bought out these new kind of cool nail polishes. Which when you add a top coat they change colour. Which is unlike an nail polish I have ever seen before and think it is so cool and unique. It lasts the same sort of time any other Barry M nail polish.  I suppose you could wear it with or without a top coat so getting 2 colours in one nail polish. What I didn't just realise until a bit of research was that it does indicate before and after on the lid/cap which is pretty handy too!


Have you tried these, what are you thoughts?

Simple Hydrating Moisturiser

So I bought the little travel sized one and literally loved it. It doesn't smell which doesn't really bother me that much, it sinks in pretty fast but I am not sure whether that is due to me having dry skin or that it is uber fast at sinking in. It is pretty thick and creamy. I really love  that now on simple products they have the "vital vitamins" and "skin loving nutrients" it is really nice to know that this is really quite good for the health of your skin. I think it does keep my skin feeling moisturised all day and maybe even for the 12 hours they claim. So overall a great moisturiser and does what it claims to do and not at all that expensive at around £2 depends were you purchase it.

Lush Rock Star Soap





So I got this in a gift set called "Outta of this world" which also include "Space Girl" bath bomb which I loved! You can buy it blocks and it has little stars in it and you buy it by the gram. I only came across it when sorting through my collection of body butters, soaps, bomb, shower gels etc...and realised I have had this for over a year ooopsie! So I thought I would start to use it. It smells like vanilla, and it lathers up really nicely and the glitter doesn't stay on your hands but the smell does! It is really creamy which makes it really moisturising. So all in all I love it and think that when I want to treat myself I will be buying it again sometime soon!
