Vitapacks whitening beauty products review

While I was in the philippines I was sent product to try and test. Vitapacks sent me a set of beauty product which includes soap, lotion, face mask and mega white supplement. While it is a big thing in the UK to use fake tan and try to brown your skin more, in the Philippines it is popular to have pale skin and less tan, so you get whitening products instead of tanning products.

The soap is 8 in 1 which has anti-aging, anti-blemish and many more. What I love about this soap is that it doesn’t melt very easily and it doesn’t dry up my skin compare to other whitening product I have tried before. Some whitening soap is a bit strong and does sting on my face but this one is gently and smells nice too. My face has got few pimples after I came back from my holiday and they slowly disappear after using the soap. I’m pleased with the result because it even Out the dark tan lines I got from wearing my eye glasses.

The lotion smells nice and has a lovely texture. It’s not thick or heavy, it just feels perfect when applied on my skin. I feel like it moisturises my skin and evens out the tan lines patch area that I have such as my wrist watch mark which is slowly fading. I love this lotion, it’s one of the best whitening I have ever tried.

The face mask is so amazing. It feels luxurious on the skin and makes it feeling softer and nice to touch. It’s so refreshing once applied and makes my skin looking fresh after using it.

The supplement seems effective as few people notice that I’m glowing and complimented me. Looking at my before and after photo, I can definitely see some difference and changes. My skin appeared brighter and more looking good compare to the tired and dull looking one before trying them all. I’m really pleased with the result and I would definitely recommend them if you want to use them not just because of the lightening reason but also to even out your skin tone and have a bit of glow. What I love about this product is also doesn’t irritate my skin or it’s not harsh compare to other whitening brand I have tried in the past. It won’t give you an instant whitening effect but you can definitely see the difference after using them.

Disclaimer: Vitapacks set of product was sent to me for the purpose of this review but this does not not affect my thoughts and opinion after testing them. I’m only sharing my experience after trying them but bear in mind that everyone has a different reaction on every products.

Review of the new Avon Lip Lacquer

Available as sample atm, but will be available to buy soon from Avon I tested the new Lip Lacquer which is a new long lasting liquid lip colour, available in shine finish or matte.

 It is described as never bleeds, never feathers and long lasting. So I decided to test it before I bought the full size!

Application was a bit fiddly from their sample pots, but it is lovely and smooth and has a fabulous shiny finish, it definitively didn’t bleed or feather. As far as long lasting goes check out my video here.

The colour definitely faded and the shiny was all gone, but there was still colour to my lips…even the next day (please excuse the no make up, bed hair look)!

Malée Conditioning Body Scrub Review

I am a huge fan of treating myself to a luxury product in the bathroom, nothing beats relaxing in the bath surrounded by fantastic scents and extra conditioning products. But I am fussy and only like to use environmentally friendly products: SLS free, no parabans, not tested on animals etc etc.

I recently discovered Malée and love love love their products. My favourite by far is the Conditioning Body Scrub, which not only smells divine but is a must have for any bathroom cupboard.

The scrub is great for removing dry, dead skin cells, leaving your legs smooth and beautiful, it also leaves an oil layer (which is the moisturiser) which can act as a great base for shaving your legs, instead of buying a separate shaving cream.

If you wax then be sure to use a scrub a few days after your treatment, it can help to stop ingrowing hairs and if you get a spray tax, make sure you use a scrub before your visit to remove dead cells and make your tan even.

Honestly, I don’t know how any bathroom is complete without a body scrub, I use it twice a week especially important in the summer.

Do you like luxury toiletries? What is your favourite/must have bathroom product?

Jamberry nails: easier and quicker than varnish

As a busy mum I really don’t have time to faff around painting my nails and letting them dry and then 2 days later they are all chipped and look rubbish. That is until I discovered Jamberry Nail Wraps

These nail wraps use heat and pressure to apply long lasting, pretty nail colours which don’t take long to apply, are ready to go straight away (no drying time) and don’t chip or fade. They last about 2 weeks and look as good they day you put them on as the day you take them off. 

You can apply them using your hair dryer for the heat, but if you like the wraps and go on to use them more often I would really recommend buying their heater as it is so much better than a hair dryer. 

If your nails are fairly flat then they are pretty easy to apply, mine are really curled so are harder to apply which is why I use the baggy method to stick the sides down well.  I have done video to show you the baggy method, check it out here

I would really recommend giving jamberry nails a try, if you contact a sales rep then they are often happy to send you a sample to try.

Colour Freedom Hair Dye!!

Last year we dyed Bethany’s hair at the start of the summer, that way she can have it bright and colourful and we have plenty of time for it to wash out before school starts up. This year she asked to dye it again, I think it’s becoming a bit of a tradition!

We use the Colour Freedom hair dyes from Superdrug, the ones we have are Pink Pizazz and Mystic Purple. I chose these as they don’t have any harsh chemicals or peroxides in and last 6-10 washes which is perfect for us. They also produce lovely bright colours and are really easy to apply and “play with”. The colours I used were from last years tubes, storing them a year, while open hasn’t effected them at all. 

Bethany is fairly blonde to start with, so I don’t need to lighten her hair before applying, last year I applied pink to the tips and purple further up so she had an ombré effect, this year she wanted pink tips and 2 purple streaks. 

Check out our video here

As always it came out looking great!!


So much so I did mine too, what do you think?!

Sensse anti aging facial cleansing brush review 

This is my first time to try out a facial brush. I have never tried them before because I’m scared that it will irritate my skin since I have a combination of normal and sensitive skin. Also, I thought that the facial brush is a bit hard for my face until I have tried this. The anti aging purpose seems a bonus as well since sign of aging has had started to show. 


This came in a smart looking box which looks presentable and expensive. Inside comes the facial brush and its cover, USB cable, charger base. No instruction or user manual included but it’s very straightforward. Just connect the USB cable to adaptor and charge it for an hour and you can see that’s it’s already fully charge when the 3 light is standby. 


It has a 3 intensity levels for you to choose from and It’s recommended to use the low level brush speed if you have a sensitive skin and the high speed for a deep exfoliation and anti wrinkle treatment. 


Once fully charged, I wet my face first to dampen it and wet the brush as well. Then I put a little bit of Nivea facial cleanser to the brush and I choose the low level brush speed and glide it on my face on a circular motion. 


I’m surprised that the brush brittle is soft on my skin. It gives a gently massage feeling and stimulate the blood flow. The brush will automatically stop and beep every 20 seconds to remind you to move to a new area which is good. 


After i finish, I rinse my face and pat dry. I have notice that my skin is feeling softer, fresh and radiant. My face looks cleaner and smoother as well. I’m totally converted and would love to continue using this facial cleanser brush. I feel that my face will benefit from its exfoliation purposes and it’s good for the skin to have a facial brush which act like a massager as well which is good for blood circulation. 


I’m pleased with this product and it’s good to know that I can use this while in the shower as well. I’m impress how soft the brush brittle and didn’t irritate my skin. I would definitely recommend this especially if you’re always on the go and don’t have time to cleanse and exfoliate.

Acevivi Automatic Rotating Hair Curler

I have dead straight hair and generally I just leave it straight, well straight is in so I might as well, but sometimes it’s nice to try something different.

I have previously tried different ways of curling my hair: curling tongs, foam rollers, with a straightener etc but most have been pretty much a failure. I am really bad at doing the back of my head, it either looks awful or I end up tangling myself up.

I saw these automatic rotating curlers and thought they were a great idea for people, like me, who struggle with normally methods.
