*Fun Gifts - KIKKERLAND Camera Pencil Sharpener & Chemistry 101 Flask Book

Image
     *I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. I was recently sent a couple of products that would be perfect when you just need a fun gift for someone in your life.  The Camera Pencil Sharpener* is one of those products you don't know you need and makes a perfect gift for that hard to buy for person.  Its from Kikkerland and is available to purchase from Amazon for £13.99.  Funnily enough I was wondering if I even had any pencils to sharpen when I got this product, but I found I had loads that I wasn't able to use as they hadn't been sharpened for ages, because guess what I couldn't find a pencil sharpener anywhere in the house.  Never mind a gift for someone else I love this product it works great giving a perfectly sharpened pencil, but the best thing is it reminds me of the old school pencil sharpeners I had at school back in the day as it works the same as those did but looks cool as its in the style of an old school camera.  This is one gif

*ZeroWater 12 Cup Ready Pour Pitcher Water Filter Jug Review

*I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I have recycled for as long as I can remember, but as a recycler I had never really thought about what happened to the items I recycled such as plastic bottles.  I have never liked to drink tap water and have always bought bottled water for the gym and for taking to work, but it's only when you see the damage plastic does to the environment,  especially the ocean and the animals that live there, that you realise just recycling isn't enough.   I want to make the effort to drink more water, but at the same time I do not want to add to the single use plastic that is out there already.  I was recently offered the chance to try out ZeroWater 12 Cup Ready Pour Pitcher Water Filter Jug* which is a great alternative to bottled water. It's so easy to use you just remove the lid and screw in the filter, fill the reservoir with cold water and let all the water pass through the filter the first time you use it and then empt

*St. Moriz Fast Tan Lotion, Spray Tan In A Can & Oily Skin Tanning Serum

   *I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. Regular readers of my blog will know how much I enjoy using St. Moriz Tanning products, so I wanted to share some more products from this brand.  The St. Moriz 1 Hour Fast Tan Lotion* gives you a choice of how tanned you become.  If you leave this product on for 1 hour you will have a light sun-kissed glow, leave it on for 2 hours for a golden glow and 3 hours for a deeper bronzed tone.  I love this product because some days you just want a light tan for a fresh, healthy glow and other times you want to go all out with a deeper tanned look. Its so simple to use as you just wash away the guide colour once you have achieved the colour tone you are aiming for. Brilliant. The St. Moriz Spray Tan In A Can* in the shade medium is a 360 degree spray that makes it easy to reach all those awkward to reach areas of your body. It dries within minutes and the tan begins to develop after 1 hour and will continue to develop over an

Natural Deodorant Reviews

I have been meaning to try out more natural deodorants for a while and I am happy to report that all the deodorants I have tried have worked very well and I will be continuing to  use them in the future rather than the sprays that I have relied on in the past.  The deodorants that I am reviewing below were all purchased by me. Natural deodorants do not necessarily stop you from sweating, they are more about keeping you fresh and odour free, but I haven't felt like a sweaty betty when I have been using these products I am happy to report. Lush Aromaco Solid Deodorant  costs £7.00 for 100g which is a nice chunky block.  This product uses antibacterial witch hazel and soothing camomile vinegar and it's very easy to use by rubbing it on clean, dry armpits.  It doesn't leave a residue on your skin or mark you clothes and I haven't had sweating/odour issues when I have been using it.  I think this product will last ages and the only worry I have is whether it will dry out bef

*Dentemp Professional Oral Care Kit Review

Image
*I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. Visiting the dentist is no ones favourite thing to do and like a lot of people I tend to put it off as long as possible but its one of those things that you just have to do. I must admit that I do have a nice, sympathetic dentist who makes sure I'm comfortable with whatever she is doing. That being said I'm always willing to try anything that will make my trip to the dentist as short as possible. I was sent the Dentemp Professional Oral Kit* to try out recently which helps to remove stains, plaque and tartar which I couldn't wait to try out. The kit comes with a Dental Pick, Dental Scaler, Tongue Cleaner and Mirror. Dental Scaler* - Just hold the tool so that the top of the curve is flat against the tooth and gently pull away from the gum line toward the biting edge of each tooth. You can use this product weekly. Dental Pick* - Place the pick at the gum line between the teeth and gently pull away from the g

*St. Moriz Face Tanning Mist, 1 Hour Fast Tan Mist & Glycolic Peel Tan Remover Review

Image
  *I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. St. Moriz is  definitely one of my favourite self tanning brands, so I was happy to try out some more of their products. Now that summer is nearly here, I do like to up my self-tanning game, so I love using St. Moriz products to get my glow on. I always worry about self-tanning my face as there is no hiding it if things go wrong. The St. Moriz Clear Complexion Face Tanning Mist* in medium contains salicylic acid which helps prevent breakouts whilst leaving you with a natural, radiant glow. It contains Aloe Vera & Vitamin E which is great for sensitive skins.  You can apply it daily and for best results make sure you moisturise your skin on the run up to applying it and exfoliate the day before. Cleanse and dry your face and then hold the bottle approximately 20cm from your face (close your eyes!!!) and lightly spray the mist evenly over your face, neck and chest area. A light tan develops in 8 hours and you can appl

*The Humble Co Products Review - Toothbrush, Interdental Sticks & Toothpaste Tablets

Image
*I received these products for free but the opinions are my own. I was kindly sent some The Humble Co products to try out and I thought they would be great to take on my recent holiday as they are eco-friendly products that are kinder to our planet so would be better then taking my usual plastic toothbrush.   Humble Brush Plant Based Toothbrush 2 Pack * - The Humble Co has a bamboo version of this but if you aren't keen on using the bamboo toothbrushes then The Humble Co. have created a plant based Humble brush which has a handle made from a mix of plant based materials. The products inner and outer packaging is made from paper and is eco-friendly. Its Vegan, cruelty-free and verified BPA free.  These are for sensitive teeth and are very soft and as someone who has sensitive teeth I didn't have any problems using this toothbrush at all. It comes in a pack of 2 brushes and there are 2 colour options - purple & blue brush heads or black & white brush heads. These toothbru
