Bare Feet by Margaret Dabbs Overnight Foot Rescue from M&S

Image
I do like the Bare Feet by Margaret Dabbs range from M&S.  You can read my previous post about some of the other products that I have tried from this range here. Margaret Dabbs in a leading podiatrist who has collaborated with M&S to create this reasonably priced foot care range. The Overnight Foot Rescue is a roll-on tube that dispenses a cooling, refreshing gel that helps to relieve tired, aching feet at the end of a long day.  The gel is blended with ginger extract and manuka honey with anti-bacterial properties.  I love the fact that the tube has a roller that allows you to massage the gel into your feet which is such a nice feeling.  This product is paraben free and suitable for vegetarians.  
It costs £9.50 for 100ml from M&S.  I actually bought it when there was a 20% discount available for M&S Sparks Card holders.
I am really enjoying using this product after I have been on my feet all day as it's very relaxing to massage the gel into my feet and it instantly …

Bath & Body Works Haul from Orlando

Image
I just returned home from a great holiday in Orlando and I wanted to share with you my Bath & Body Works haul.  B&BW is a must for me whenever I am in America as I love their products.  I took advantage of their great online offers (using a parcel delivery service called Fairytale Shopper which I heartily recommend if you are visiting Orlando) which made for some great deals.  Here's what I bought. I have wanted to try B&BW candles for ages, so I picked up a couple when they were $12.95 (instead of the usual $24.50).  I picked up my favourite all time scent Watermelon Lemonade (fragrance notes watermelon ice, sparkling water & meyer lemon) which is the perfect summer scent and Suntan (fragrance notes orange blossoms, bright citrus & soft coconut husk) which is just the perfect summer holiday scent.  I haven't had a chance to use them yet (with a candle warmer, I don't light candles). I stocked up on the fine fragrance mists.  They are all summer holiday t…

Primark K-Pop Pillow Talk Matte Lip Cushions

Image
I recently bought 2 K-Pop Pillow Talk Matte Lip Cushions from Primark.  They only cost £2 each and I was keen to see if they were any good.  I bought the shades Honey Bun and Jelly Bean. They come in a tube that you squeeze to get the product out of and have a foam/cushion tip.   The product does come out pretty easily so you do need to be careful how hard you squeeze the tube or way too much product will come out.  It applies easily to my lips and the Honey Bun shade does look like eye shadow but strangely doesn’t feel dry at all.  I thought it would look very dry on my lips and unflattering like matte lipsticks tend to, but it looks great.  Strangely it does say on the product it's matte they didn't look matte to me. Honey Bun looks really nice.  It’s a bronze colour with a shimmer effect but it’s not over the top and looks great. Jelly Bean is a lovely pink/coral colour  (it looks more coral in the photo but in person it is more on the pink side) and is a bit bright for me.  T…
