My Favourite Products!

Hi guys, today I am posting about my favourite products that I use and you should too! I swear I live in Boots, Superdrug and Wilkinsons!! Also, I have been up into Leicester today and managed to get tonnes more pictures of the preparation of the reburial tomorrow!! I shall start with the reviews:

First off will be bath, shower and skin products...

So the first product is Garnier Body-Summer Body, Deep Sun-Kissed Look. If you are like me and very paled skinned I would highly recommend this. It is a lotion that you can use to self tan yourself gradually. Perfect for an amazing summer body! It moisturises your skin giving you a beautiful natural tan in a matter of a few days. It is available in any store usually, and it comes to a cost of around £5-8 depending on the quantity. I bought it last year and have only used a little amount of it!

The next product is Dove-Go Fresh body wash, pomegranate and lemon verbena scent. I love the smell, feel and after finish of this. If you don't already use this, why? It's available at Boots, Superdrug, anywhere really.

Another one I use daily is Neutrogena Visibly Clear, Pore & Shine Daily Wash. It smells amazing and does a good job of cleansing your skin. Coming in at an average cost of £5, it's worth every penny!

If like me you are naturally blonde-ish and want to die your hair lighter, but also don't want to die your hair, John Frieda, Sheer Blonde, Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray is brilliant! It is a spray which is activated by a hairdryer, you spray the areas in your hair that you want highlighted and after a week, you will start to see a difference. I highly recommend this, everyone keeps asking if I have dyed my hair, they are all stunned when I say no. I don't know how much it is as my mum bought it for me, however you can buy it at stores such as Boots and Superdrug. 

I suffer with terrible body and facial acne, This product is so cheap yet the best spot treatment that I have ever used! Spotless Skincare, Calming Treatment starts its work in up to 4  hours. It takes the redness off of the spots and calms them down, eventually getting rid of them! It is available to buy at Wilkinsons (own brand) for only a couple of pounds.

Moving onto make-up, nail polish and perfume...

Okay, so I will start with perfume...This, at the minute, is my favourite fragrance. Victoria Beckham-Intimately Beckham. It smells delicious. Quite a strong smell, not for everyone but I personally love it!! I think it has been on offer the two times that I have bought it and I got it for £10, one from Boots and the other from Wilkinsons. It is part of Victoria and David's line called 'dvb'. If you ever get a chance to smell it or whatever, do.

I bought the next two to actually review earlier on in the blog but never got around to it. I have found that Rimmel London's Lasting Finish, 25 hours, Nude, Sweatproof  is so brilliant! I have the Ivory one and my face never turns out orange, when I do P.E, it is always still perfect after. I really do recommend this for anyone who is willing to buy it! I managed to only get it for £5 as there was a deal with my next product, but I think that it usually costs about £7.99 roughly, from any store like Boots or Superdrug.

Tying in with the last product, I also bought Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder. All this does is perfects the look that you want. I would say that if you wanted to buy the foundation, to also buy the power. I have seen it for about £4.99 maybe £5.99 from any store as said before ;)

The next product is Revlon ColourStay, 16 hour Eye Shadow. The natural colours are superb for a natural smokey eye effect. I even got away with it for school which was fab! You are able to mix some of the colours with each other to create a less evident effect too. I actually can't seen to remember the price of this but you can find it in any store that sell 'Revlon'.

Another product I have fallen in love with is Barry M Gelly Nail Paint. I can't remember what colour I bought, but you can see the colour on the picture to the left hopefully, that will give you a vague idea. These nail polishes usually cost about £3.99. However, if you look for offers in some stores, you can get them for even less! I adore this nail polish because you end up with a really nice finish. The colour is divine and will go with any outfit. I strongly recommend any Barry M nail polish.

I don't usually enter the Body Shop very often but I needed a lip balm as I stupidly left mine at home one day. I managed to find the Born Lippy-Strawberry Flavour for only £2.50. It smells and tastes delicious, give your lips a red tinted look and keeps your lips hydrated for a period of time. Perfect for a day out.

The last product that I will be reviewing today is EOS lip balm. Mine is quite scratched up due to being in my pocket for school all of the time. I got mine from Urban Outfitters for £6.50 but you can get them on Amazon for cheaper. I bought the pomegranate flavoured one, my sister has the light purple one which is passion fruit, that one smells amazing! They are quite expensive for a lip balm but I think it it s designer label. They all come in different flavours, there are limited edition ones, sticks of them and hand lotions. 

Okay, so that concludes the reviews for today, below are some pictures of Leicester and the setup of the Richard III reburial, ready for tomorrow. If any of you get a chance to go, do, it will be fantastic!
If you are visiting Leicester in the next week, visit the Guildhall, they have plenty of fun activities, exhibitions of Richard III, as well as being cheap! The Visitors Centre looks fab too! There are art places showcasing childrens artwork on Richard III, there is lots of merchandise that you can buy-some gorgeous jewelry.

So, as you can see, Leicester is doing a lot of preparation for the next week!

That is all for this week..maybe. I don't know. Don't forget to follow me on Twitter, Bloglovin' and also check out my Polyvore account! Click on the pictures below to find them.
