SmileLab Flash Advanced Teeth Whitening Brush

Image
I am always on the look out for products that will whiten and brighten my teeth, so I was really pleased when I was sent the SmileLab Flash Advanced Teeth Whitening Brush* to try out which I have been using for a few weeks now.

This is a quick and easy product to use.  The pen has a brush on one end and a twist bottom which you wind around to push up some product onto the brush.  You apply it on to dry teeth (I usually just wipe them down with a tissue) and leave on for 60 seconds.  It's really that simple.  You can repeat this 2-3 times a day.


It doesn't have a dramatic effect (but then who wants Ross from Friends teeth - hands up if you get that reference), but it does have a slight brightening effect so it's a great product to use when you are going out for a special occasion.  The effects are  not long term, but if you want your teeth to look a bit brighter in a hurry then this product is ideal.

The product is a clear gel and has a minty menthol taste, but it's not st…

elf Cosmetics Haul / Brand Review

Image
I haven't tried any elf products for ages, but they had a few offers on recently which meant that I couldn't resist putting in an order or two. I really wanted to try out a few of their skincare and primer products, which I have never tried before.  The Pore Toner Balm  (£7.50) caught my eye as I have never used toner in a balm form before.  Have you? This is kind of a lazy girls product as I don't even have to dampen a cotton pad. Result.  It has a lovely cooling effect which I really like. The Natural Glow Lotion (£9) with Aloe in Brightening Rose is one of those "YouTube Made Me Buy It" products (I think it was Jessica Braun (JAM Beauty89).  It gives a lovely glow to my skin when used under foundation and gave me a lovely dewy look.  The Hydrating Face Primer (£7.50) is great to use on my dry skin to keep my skin feeling moisturised under foundation.  This is a silicone primer.  Finally, the Prep & Hydrate Balm (£9) is another stick balm that stops my skin…

Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil

Image
As we get older, I think it's inevitable that we lean towards various food supplements to keep our bodies and minds as healthy and sharp as possible.  One of the products that I have been trying out lately is Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil* which I was kindly sent to try out.  This is a food supplement that contains Omega 3 Fatty Acids which supports healthy heart, vision and brain function. I am not gonna lie, it's a fish oil and it does have a distinctive smell, but luckily it has a natural lemon flavour which means it does not taste fishy.
You only need to take one 5ml teaspoon daily with food.  It does not contain sugar, gluten, starch, wheat, dairy, artificial flavours, artificial colours, nuts, shellfish, soy or corn.  This is a product that has met the Marine Stewardship Councils (MSC) global standard for sustainability.
The 250ml bottle costs £37.99 from Wiley's Finest website and contains 50 servings.  You can also purchase this in capsule form as well and …

Dr Jart+ Shake & Shot Rubber Brightening and Soothing Masks

Image
If you're wondering why I bought these products, then I will totally admit it was because of the unusual packaging.  It's so weird, like a coffee cup with a lid in the shape of a babies face with what looks like a straw coming out of it's mouth.  I mean come on how can you resist that sort of weird and wonderful packaging.  Well I can't anyway.  I picked up these 2 face masks in Sephora when I was in Florida recently.  They were $12 each and come in 4 varieties.  I bought the brightening and soothing masks (you can also get hydro and firming masks).  You can buy them on online at Selfridges for £8 in the UK.

So yeah, I like the packaging, but what about the actual product.  Well you have to do a little bit of work to get to applying the mask on your face, but that's part of the fun (admittedly,  I will probably get bored of it soon).  In each cup (which is the mixing cup), you get 2 sachets.  Step 1 is the Super Booster and Step 2 is the soothing or brightening ampo…

Zoya Nail Polish Haul

Image
I love, love, love, Zoya nail polishes and have tons in my stash.  Love the colours, love the packaging, love everything about them.  Here are a few that I got recently. Trudith is a muted purple which I love.  It's great for everyday wear.  I love how easily these polishes go on with no streaks and this one could have got away with just one coat as its so opaque. 
Darby is a blue grey colour with a brighter blue shimmer through it.  It would be great for a night out.  
Alice is from the Pixie Dust range and is a bright purple with different colour sparkles in it.  It's great for when you want your nails to stand out and look a bit different.
Brandi is a bright blush pink.  This is a great holiday colour it's so pretty.
Mia is a lovely mauve pink colour that I will be wearing a lot of as it's a gorgeous colour that will go with anything.
Pandora is a pinky nude with silver shimmer through it.  I would imagine it would be a great colour for a bride.
Brighton looks more gold fr…

Kylie Cosmetics Haul

Image
In the past I have resisted the urge to purchase any Kylie Cosmetics as I'm not the biggest Kardashian/Jenner fan, but I have always liked the branding of this range and can see why it's so popular.  I have finally succumbed though as there was an online offer that I just couldn't turn down.  I purchased the following 5 products. King K Metal Lipstick which is a metallic gold.  I really like metallic lip products as I find they are flattering on my thin lips.  This product has a very creamy texture and does not dry down on lips.  It does look nice over a matte lip product as well.  This product has a doe foot applicator.
Posie K Lip gloss is a berry colour which is my favourite out of the products I bought as it's really flattering.  I'm not really keen on the brush applicator on this product but it still applies well.  
Candy K Lip gloss is a nude pink which is great for all occasions.   
Like Lip gloss is a warm nude brown colour which is the darkest one I bought, bu…
