BarryM Nail Paint far!

BarryM Nail Paint is a fab nail polish; they have a great range of colours, glitters and special effects (crackle).

They retail at only £2.99 so are well worth collecting. I have been collecting for a while now so I thought I'd share the ones I have.

The quality is very good. The colour lasts well when using a base and topcoat.

Which are your favourite BarryM nail paints?

Sorry I don't have swatches!

Review: Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial

I ordered this from Qvc. I think it was £39 (ish) for 15ml Which seems alot but you only use one pump and this does your whole face and neck. Plus you only use it on a night.

The smell of this oil is gorgeous. All the blends of oil mix together to create a wonderful scent. It contains meadowfoam seed oil, hemp seed oil, melon oil, baobab oil, jojoba, jasmine and rose oil.

I'm going to continue to use this oil as I can definitely feel that my skin is smoother.

The oil is renowned for lifting, firming and perfecting the skin. The jasmine and rose leave your skin feeling refreshed and radiant.

The oil feels silky when you apply it to the skin and gives you an instant glow.
I love this oil and want to try more from her range.

Review and rave: Prada Candy perfume

I picked this up at Debenhams yesterday as they had 10% off all perfumes and cosmetics. I paid £36 so saved £4 which is ok. I bought the small bottle as the large one was still £60 and didnt want to spend that amount.

I have wanted this perfume for a while now. I've walked past and tested it on numerous occasions so as there was a sale on I decided to get it.

It's a very sweet smelling perfume. If u love scents like Britney Spears fantasy or radiance, Miss Dior, flower bomb by Viktor Rolf or some of the Juicy Couture perfumes you will love this! The scent lasts too I sprayed it last night and could still smell it this morning. Obviously not as strong but it was there!

I did a little research on the perfume and it contains notes of benzoin which is from a tree and this gives the perfume a spicy smell it is used lots in perfumes. Also it contains caramel which I love!!

The bottle is very classy and looks fab on my dressing table.

I would defo recommend this if u love sweet scents.

Review: Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub

I was watching one of karrisx's YouTube videos and she recommended this scrub. I've been on the lookout for a good facial scrub for a few months now. Ive tried a few which were ok but nothing special. I dont like scrubs to be too harsh eg grains to scratchy and big!! Like st Ives apricot scrub. I really don't like that scrub!

On the tub it says lashings of fine sea salt to scrub and clean, organic limes to brighten and avocado butter to soften skin. You can use this on your body too. It is full of yummy ingredients which include grapefruit oil, Coconut oil and lime oil!!

So I gave this scrub a bash this morning and I have to say I LOVED it!!

I washed my face with my normal cleanser la Roche posay. The applied the scrub. The smell first hits you. Like a fresh lemon/lime smell. Gorgeous!! The grains of salt seemed to melt away so the scrub is not too abrasive on your skin! And the oils are very softening and smoothing on the skin. I massaged it in for a minute or so then splashed it off with water. My face was so soft and clean. With it smelling citrusy it really wakes you and your skin up!

I would highly recommend this scrub it's gorgeous and works!

This product retails at £6.95 for 120g or for the larger size £12.95 which is for 250g. I got the smaller one just to try it out but will definitely be purchasing the larger one next time.

Let me know if you have any favourite face scrubs as I'm always on the lookout for new products to try
