Foamy Banana Sweet Treats Bath Cream by Imperial Leather

Hey girls,

Long time no see hey, well… today I have a short and sweet little review for you all. I have been using one of Imperial Leather’s Sweet Treats Bath Cream in Foamy Banana and I’m loving the idea of there sweet Treats Bath Creams which are named after and smell like real sweets.

The Foamy Banana Bath Cream is just a dream. It is a thick pale yellow gel like cream that lathers really well and feels fabulous on the skin leaving it feeling cleansed, soft and scented. It even produces a good amount of bubbles when used as a bubble bath. It smells AMAZING! Exactly like the foam banana sweets, such a sweet, fabulous scent. I use mine as a bubble bath, a shower gel and a body wash and it really is a lush treat for your skin. Not only does it smell good but it leaves skin feeling soft and smooth too.

I can’t wait to try the other ‘flavours’ out, the Sherbert Lemon and Marshmellow bath cream are already on my shopping list. The bath creams retail at around £1 and a big 500ml bottle will last a while so they are definately bargains. I picked mine up in Boots but they are available in Asda, Home Bargains and Superdrug too.

Strawberry, Rose, Mango & Lavender Fizzing Bath Bombs from Home Bargains

Hey ladies,

I love nothing more than soaking in a gorgeous fizzing bath – I love myself a good bath bomb so I was excited to try these little bargain bath bombs after spotting them at the back of the shelf in saver store, Home Bargains. They were about 79p each and there are four different scents available, they are: Rose, Strawberry, Mango and Lavender. I have bought them in the past so these were a second time buy for me so I thought I’d fill you lot in on them.

I really love the packaging of the bath bombs, they look much more expensive than what they are and I think they look very pretty, pretty enough to be put into a little box and given as a gift to someone maybe.

The ingredients list is printed on the packaging and the bath bombs each have their own mild yet fabulous scent and they smell lovely when they’re fizzing away under the warm running water, I love watching them fizz! The only negative thing I have to say about the bombs is the fact I did find the fragrance soon disappeared once it had stopped fizzing in the water and the scent of them never lingered as long as I hoped it would although my skin was left silky soft afterwards and my sensitive skin did not feel irritated.

My two favourites were the Strawberry bath bomb and the Mango bath bomb. Overall, I liked them. They are great little bargain and at 79p each you can’t complain, hey.

Much Love,

Review: Divine Shine Coconut Hair Oil – Inecto Naturals

Hey chicks.

A while back I reviewed a Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner from Inecto Naturals and I liked the brand so much I thought I would give their Divine Shine Coconut Hair Oil a whirl to see if it is any good for my damaged hair. Inecto say they don’t use unnecessary chemicals in their products and they claim to be vegan friendly, saying their products themselves are made cruelty free and are not tested on animals.

First impressons:

The oil comes in a 100 ml clear recyclable bottle which looks simple and fresh. It has a anti-leak pump dispenser with a lid which is always good especially if you’re accident prone like me and always knocking things over. The oil is itself is clear and transparent, doesn’t leave a sticky feeling on the hands and it smells divine like coconuts. I think the bottle looks cool and attractive and I love Inecto’s packaging and their way with words on the back of the label.

The ingredients contain:

Cyclopentasiloxane, dimethiconal, Dimethicone, Bis-Hydroxy/Methoxy Amodimethicone, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Parfum.

Results:

After washing and towel drying my damaged hair I pumped a little oil out of the bottle into my hands and ran my fingers throughout my mid lengths and ends before styling with a hair dryer. Once dried, my dry hair felt smooth, silky soft and my frizzy ends were tamed and no longer noticeable. The oil left my hair looking very shiny and glossy and it literally felt like silk compared to how it usually feels. Not only that, my hair was left smelling absolutely delicious and the coconut scent of the oil is to die for. I love how it smells and I found it lingers too and doesn’t fade too quickly. I did notice that when I used too much of the oil and especially near my roots, my hair looked greasy and oily, so I do recommend using sparingly, using a little each time and adding more if needed as well as keeping the oil away from the roots. I also use the oil on dry hair for added nourishment and shine and it works just as well on dry hair as it does on wet hair. I do recommend this coconut oil and I believe it is a bargain, priced super cheap at around £1.29 from Home Bargains.

Love Yas,

Budget Yankee Candle Alternatives: Wickford & Co Christmas Candles – Gingerbread, Mulled Wine, Apple & Cinnamon

Christmas is coming to town kids…

 So you know I had to get the candles in to get me into the swing of things. I love Christmas. I love my candles, any candles to be fair… but, you really can’t beat Christmas candles can you? There’s nothing better and nothing cozier than lighting a candle to get into the Christmas spirit.

1dfghjk.png

I bought three very large Wickford & Co candles from Home Bargains yesterday and at only £2.99 each for a large jar with around 95 hours burn time – they really are a bargain. You would pay over £20 for a same-sized Yankee Candle. Although these aren’t as strong smelling as Yankees but they are still smellable, Yankees are so potent. I love my Yankee’s but they can be expensive especially when you’re the type of person who has candles lit of a DAY and of a night when I’m home, continuously non-stop – #obsessedwithcandles.

Mulled Wine – I’m not usually a mulled wine drinker but this candle smells lovely. It has a rich aroma and I might even be tempted to get some Mulled Wine in this Christmas.

Apple Cinnamon. – Smells like baked apple pie with a hint of cinnamon. This has a girly sweet aroma and I love it. Delish!

untitleddfghj.png

Gingerbread – Without a doubt my favourite candle out of the three that I bought. This candle smells like you have just walked into a bakery on Christmas Eve – absolutely gorgeous. It is so lovely and has a sweet aroma exactly like gingerbread biscuits. It has made me want to eat some gingerbread men. Yum!

If your liking these gorgeous Christmas fragranced candles, head down to your local Home Bargains store before they sell out. I almost had a punch up over the last Gingerbread candle, so be quick and be prepared to rumble and pounce if you have to ha. I’ll be getting a couple more in for myself and to give as little gifts to all the ladies in my life as I think they will like them just as much as I do.

Hopefully, next time I pop into HB they will still have some left. I think they are fabulous and I would be very happy if I was gifted one of these candles this Christmas.

Hint hint.

Dry, Damaged & Frizzy Hair? | Inecto’s Coconut Shampoo & Conditoner Are Miracle Workers (Review)

Hello Gorgeous Girls (& Boys) 😘

I bought some Inecto Coconut Hair Shampoo & Conditioner a few days ago and I’ve just absolutely fell in love with it! I’ve never tried any of Inecto’s products before, I’ve never even heard of them until now but I had a little voice in my head screaming ‘BUY, BUYY, BUYYY’ while out shopping yesterday. I had to do as I was told didn’t I and I’m so grateful to that little voice now that I have tried them!


What I’ve Been Using

I’ve been using the Inecto Naturals Super Nourishing Coconut Shampoo & Super Moisturising Coconut Conditioner to rescue my damaged, dry and brittle hair.

6tag_300116-092856


My Experience

Good

The packaging of the shampoo and conditioner instantly grabbed my attention – I just love the crisp, clean, and simple white bottles because they look so fresh and modern. I was shocked to find that they were only £1.19 each as they were pretty good sized 500 ml bottles and look very expensive.

WP_20160130_09_27_56_Pro

I love how my hair looks and feels after using them! My hair hasn’t looked / felt as healthy as it does now for a long, long time. It is so silky to touch and looks so much healthier. Usually an hour or two later after styling my hair, it becomes tatty and coarse to touch. My hair smells absolutely amazing too and is so shiny and smooth with not a split end in sight – I can’t praise them enough. I’m definitely going to buy the Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner again and I’m really looking forward to trying the Inecto Argon Oil Shampoo/Conditioner too as well as other products made by Inecto.

As mentioned above the shampoo & conditioner cost me around £2.40 for both which I think is a bargain price – I would definitely purchase them both if they where more expensive to buy! I think they’re amazing and they’ve done an amazing job at moisturising my hair so I have put them into My Favourite Products.

Apparently, they are not tested on animals (cruelty free), suitable for vegans and contain no PARABENS.


Bad

The only negative(ish) thing I have to say about the actual shampoo and conditioner is when leaving my hair to dry naturally it seemed to take forever to completely dry. I’m trying to get my locks healthy again so I try not to use hairdryers and straighteners on my hair as often as I can. With other shampoo’s and conditioners if I leave my hair to dry naturally instead of blowing it with a hairdryer – it dries by itself within an hour. Six hours after washing my hair with Inecto’s Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner it was still very damp! Although, if you dry your hair with a hairdryer or have all the time in the world to wait for your hair to dry – this shouldn’t be a problem for you.

Another negative is the ingredients. As mentioned above the packaging claims the ingredients are ‘PURE’ as well as containing 100% coconut oil but after doing some research I’ve discovered they actually contain COCONUT DIETHANOLIDE, SODIUM LAURETH Sulfate (SLS), METHYLISOTHIAZOLINONE and MAGNESIUM NITRATE HEXAHYDRATE.

Thoughts

I am disappointed because I fell for the word ‘PURE’ and discovered the ingredients contain NASTIES which I usually try to avoid! As well as feeling tricked about the false advertising on the bottles but… although I’m a little disappointed with the ingredients, I do like how its rescued my hair and I will buy it again!


Recommended For

I’d recommend Inecto Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner to anyone and everyone! Especially those with damaged dry hair who will certainly benefit from the serious moisturising ability. I’d also recommend to anyone who likes to use quality hair products but for a reasonable price too!


Where To Buy

I got mine from Home Bargains for around £1.20 each. You can get some on eBay and Amazon too. Check out Inecto‘s website to find a local stockist near you.


 

Have any of you tried Inecto products before?

Would you like to in the future?

How do you feel about false advertisement and nasty ingredients in products?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Thanks for reading chicks !

Love…

Katie ❤
