EOS Organic Lip Balm in Coconut Milk

I'm one of those kind of people who, regardless of the weather, if I'm not wearing lip balm while outside my lips will just split and bleed. It's all kinds of crazy considering I have fairly oily skin, but neither my lips nor my hands feel the benefit from that. You can imagine then how many lip balms I tend to go through, not just because I use them all up but because some aren't actually any good for my lips.

So it was with a slight amount of trepidation I decided to buy one of the often lauded EOS lip balms, in particular;

EOS Organic Lip Balm Coconut Milk:

It's a nice novelty for me to have a lip balm in a little pot like this that I don't have to stick my finger in, I hate having to stick my fingers into balms it's just not hygienic. It's also a nice touch having the balm rounded rather than in stick form which gets boring after a while, there's not much you can do to make lip balms exciting but EOS certainly funked these up.

I've found it to be a pretty good lip balm so far, it coats my lips fully and doesn't lip off in five minutes, it feels rich and moisturising and has helped reduce the peely flakey splity issues I get with my lips. The one downside for me is the taste and smell, it's not coconut, it's almost pure sugar. Smells sweet, tastes sweet, I can look past that but I would have prefered a more coconut scent/taste.

You can find it at many online sites but I bought mine from here for £5.99.

Hugo Boss Femme

Signature fragrances, we all have one no matter how many other perfumes we dabble with or even love. Some come to us after trial and error, others you just know from the first spray it's the scent for you.

My signature fragrance and the one most my scarfs smell of is Hugo Boss Femme.

From its launch in 2006 to the present day, ten years have passed and I've never been without a bottle of this lushiousness.

Radiant. Soft. Smooth. Femme by BOSS exudes an aura of captivating femininity.
The subtle, lingering warmth of the fragrance is sublimely sophisticated and modern.
An enticing experience and the most liberatingly feminine fragrance from BOSS.
Femme by BOSS is harmony in a bottle; a scent metaphor for modern femininity.
Projected by the fruity top notes of tangerine and blackcurrant, the fragrance is grounded in a creamy, musk-like base.
This works with the white floral trio of stephanotis, rose and oriental lily to leave behind just a subtle, warm aura of the scent.

Despite its name I've never felt this is a perfume for girly girls, after all, beauty blog or not, I'm not the girliest of girls, it's just a scent that makes me feel happy at heart, warm and comforting and oh so familiar after 10 years of wearing it. It's what I chose to wear on my wedding day and what I spray on before any big event even though I own lots of other lovely perfumes.

I dread the day they discontinue this, when I hear that day approaches I'll stock up on it, enough to last me another few decades at least.

Top Note:

Tangerine, Blackcurrant Buds, Freesia

Heart Note: 

Oriental Lily, Staphanotis, Rose Petal

Base Note: 

Musky Notes, Apricot, Satinwood

30ml is £24.99 or 50ml is £26.99 from here.

What is your signature fragrance or are you still searching for yours?

Cow Brand Mutenka Makeup Cleansing Oil

For years I've been a huge fan of hot cloth cleansers like Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish or Bee Good's Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser so it never really occurred to me to use a cleansing oil even though I've read plenty about them being used to double cleanse, added to that the fact I wear little makeup always made me feel like I didn't need to double cleanse as the cream cleansers always took off what I wore fully.

So this has been sitting to one side for a while now, sealed and unloved, until in a desire to use up what I have, I unsealed it and started to use it.

The product;

Collection Blush in Bashful

(The Brand formerly known as Collection 2000)

Just because it's a drugstore brand and cheaper than many of its competitors doesn't mean we should overlook the ever trusty Collection brand, it's been around since I was a little girl and I grew up using it in my teens back when it was known as Collection 2000. I have to admit I still to this day call it Collection 2000 but I guess that's me showing my age.

It's no secret I don't wear a great deal of makeup, but that I do have a love for blushers, part of the reason I cover so many on my blog, for example the Makeup Revolution palettes Golden Sugar and Sugar & Spice.

I always carry Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer around in my handbag but this post is about the Collection blush called Bashful, and I'll cover the concealer another day.
