ORANGEASM™ Every Morning! With Soap and Glory

IMG_8033.JPGAs you may already know I’m a huge Soap and Glory fan. I know, I know it’s all pink and girly but I just can’t help it, they manage to reel me in every time!
I love the fact they have an affordable line of up of up-to-the minute beauty with fun packaging and punchy tag lines, but above all some really nice good quality products that tick all the boxes!

I’ve been using this Orangeasm Body Wash in place of the original Clean On Me™shower gel. I really like the zesty refreshing scent (it contains green mandarin, Sicilian lemon and sweet lemon) it helps to wake me up in the mornings! It’s not over powering citrus or plastic smelling it’s more of a pleasant orange peel smell.

As most S&G products a little goes a long way, I find 3 pumps of this is plenty and lathers up well when used with my natural sea sponge.

My skin is clean, fresh and revitalised.
I think this is a great product for only £6.50 for 500ml and S&G are usually included in 3 for 2 deals at boots, get yours here

Supershine, yes please Mr Oribe!

I’ve just discovered a new love in the hair world after being given a tester of a fabulous hair product from Oribe called “Supershine Light Moisturizing Cream” a hair cream I hear you say, I too never thought hair creams were any good for my fine fluffy locks until I tried this.

20140326-173351.jpgIt’s a super light weightless leave-in conditioning cream which softens, adds shine and also doubles up as a heat protector and doesn’t weigh your hair down. Applying a small amount to towel dryed hair, combing through mid lengths to ends evenly then styling in your normal way.

It’s a white cream that smells kinda floral/citrus and feels silky to the touch. As all Oribe products it looks/feels/gives luxurious results. I like it as it’s light enough for fine hair but still delivers noticeable shine reforming dull over processed (fried) hair!

The science Bit:
Contains Soy Protein Biopolymer (anti frizz it you and I)
Edelweiss Flower ( helps prevent damage)
Keratin and Amber Extracts (strength and condition)

All in all it’s a thumbs and and could quite possibly be my new hair care best friend! Oribe products are height end luxury so expect the prices to reflect that quality, trust me you will not be disappointed and their packaging is so lush it will look super chic on your dressing table or bathroom shelf!

Fresh n’ Foamy Body Polish

Bliss® Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub is a fresh vibrantly scented body scrub that lathers up for a gentle sudsy, smoothing, softening skin cleansing and exfoliating experience.

20130826-155516.jpgBenefits:
Sugar granules gentle exfoliate and smooth skin, that dissolve easily after rinsing.
Vitamins A, C and E to protect your skin.
Sunflower Oil to keep skin soft and supple.
Orange and Pepper deliver a warm, clean and invigorating scent.

20130826-155842.jpgUse on damp skin in the shower in circular motions to buff away full skin to reveal energized and polished supple skin.

The smell is subtle citrus with warm undertones, the texture is just to my liking, not scratchy but rounded and enjoyable. The foamy part is a nice surprise which makes it feel like a luxurious experience.

20130826-160007.jpgMy skins feels smooth, supple and moisturised and polished, I don’t even require moisturiser really but still apply.

At £28.60 340ml It’s a little pricey compared to my all time favorite “Soap and Glory Sugar Crush” £8 300ml (another of Marcia Kilgores fabulous beauty lines)

Overall this product looks pretty, is high quality, no fuss, does exactly what it claims and feels luxurious, so I’m gonna give it the thumbs up for a great pre/post summer body scrub!
