Review: Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control Daily Scrub

Hi everyone,

I thought I would review for you the exfoliator that I'm currently using as part of my acne skincare routine, and I use before I go in with my cleanser.

The Neutrogena Visibly Clear Spot Stress Control Daily Scrub is a gorgeous, gentle and refreshing scrub, which has a lovely mild fresh mint fragrance.

The scrub itself is a creamy formula with microbes, and it has a slight lather too it once water has been added to help aid the exfoliation. But, it also soothes the skin at the same time, and this is due to the green tea and cucumber. Also, the scrub ius gentle enought for everyday use.

The aim of the scrub is to exfoliate away any dead skin cells and removing any oil or dirt that may be present on the skin. Also the scrub penetrates deep down into the skin to help unclog any pore, which will help to clear away any spots or mild acne.

Bath & Body Works Haul - Vegas Edition 2016

Hi everyone,

So, a very good friend of mine has recently been on holiday to Las Vegas, and I asked her kindly if she would pick some up from Bath & Body Works because she knows how much I love their products.

Travel Size Fragrance Mists

I really like the travel size fragrance mists from Bath & Body Works because these are ideal to keep in your handbag for when your on the go. I scents I have got are 'Tahiti Island Dream' and 'Paris Amour'.
Tahiti Island Dream - This is a lovely vanilla scent that has a fresh lemony undertone, which comes through as soon as you smell it.
The notes are:-
Top: Fresh coconut water, sparkling mandarin, golden pear, kiwi blossom
Middle: Jasmine petals, water lily, lush frangipani
Base: Tahitian vanilla musk, skin amber, Australian sandalwood
Paris Amour - This is a fresh fruity, floral scent, which is will be lovely to wear during the Spring & Summer.
The notes are:-
Top: Sparkling mandarin, petite strawberry, cassis, sparkling pink champagne, apple blossoms, dewy freesia
Middle: Lushious peach, jasmine petals, French tulips, water lily, frangipani
Base: French vanilla, coconut milk, amber wood, sandalwood, creamy musk 

Lavender & Camomile Pillow Mist
I've always wanted to try a pillow mist from Bath & Body Works, especially the lavender and vanilla, which my friend couldn't get hold of for me. So she picked up the lavender and camomile one for me instead. The lavender and camomile scent just smells like pure lavender, and its stronger scent of lavender than what I'm currently using.

I love the Pocketbacs, and I have gone through quite few of these over the past few years. You can never have too many of these, especially because of the wide variety of scents on offer. The pocketbacs that were picked up on my behalf are 'Beautiful Day', which is a lovely fresh apple scent, 'Pink Chiffon', which is a fruity, floral scent, and 'Honolulu Sun' and this is a coconut scent.

My friend also managed to get the 'Sweet Pea' scent, which is fast becoming one of my favourite scents from Bath & Body Works; because its a lovely fresh fruity, floral fragrance. I'm looking forward to using this one, just to see how it compares to the fragrance mist that I'm currently using.

Black Cherry Merlot Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
I've gone through two of these in the past, and my friend managed to pick up another two for me. This is one of my favourite scents from Bath & Body Works, as it reminds me of a Bakewell Tart, with a touch of musk. 

Sweet Pea Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
This I'm looking forward to because it smells identical to the fragrance mist, and I've never used the sweet pea deep cleansing hand soap before.

Peach Bellini Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
Every one man, and their dog rave about the Peach Bellini scent, and I can see why. Its a lovely peach fragrance with a mango undertone running through it. It actually smells good enough to eat, and I'm really looking forward to using this one.

Coconut Copacabana Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
I think this scent got released last year as part of the Spring/ Summer collection, and I never purchased it. This is just a lovely fresh smelling coconut scent, which is ideal to use during the warmer months.

Beautiful Day Deep Cleansing Hand Soap
This is just a repurchase, and I'm currently working my way through my second bottle of this that I got last year. Beautiful Day is a lovely fresh apple fragrance with a subtle musky undertone.

This is the last haul from Las Vegas in this series, and I hoped that you really enjoyed reading them.

CVS Haul - Vegas Edition 2016

Hi everyone,

My friend has just recently been on holiday again to Las Vegas. But when she came back last year she mentioned to me that they have a few CVS Pharmacies. So, I asked her could she kindly pick up some things on my behalf, and its products which we can't get here in the UK.

Neurogena Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover
I've been wanting to try this as its really hyped up in the blogging/ YouTube beauty community. I haven't tried this yet, because I have a couple of eye make up removers on the go. But I am really looking forward to using this; mainly to see what all hype is about and to see if its any better than what I'm currently using.

Neutrogena Make Up Remover Cleansing Towelettes (21 wipes) x2
I've again been wanting to see what these are like, mainly because they are really hyped up in the beauty community. I'm really looking forward to using these, as we can't get these over here in the UK. 

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara
I was thrilled when I stumbled across this on the CVS website, because even though we can get the Voluminous mascara over in the UK. We can't get the Voluminous Carbon Black in the waterproof formula. I've been wanting to try this for quite a while, but because we can't the formula here in the UK its always put me off trying it. So I'm definatly looking forward using these once I have used up a few more mascaras.

L'Oreal Voluminous Superstar Waterproof Mascara
This is a mascara that we stock in the UK, but I'm not sure if we stock in the waterproof formula. I've never used a mascara that has a primer alongside it, so I'm excited to use this once I've used more mascaras.

Maybelline ColourSational Creamy Matte Lipstick in 'Lust for Blush'
I don't usually wear matte lipsticks, and this is mainly due to the dry formula. But I've heard a lot of good things about the Maybelline Creamy Lipsticks, so I wanted try one. We can get the Creamy Matte lipsticks here in the UK, but not shade 'Lust for Blush'. The shade 'Lust for Blush' is a cool toned dark mauve shade.

Maybelline ColourSational Rebel Bloom Lipstick in 'Hibiscus Pop'
This is a gorgeous cool toned pink shade, and this has a lovely light texture that feels lovely on the lips. This is a gorgeous shade, and will be lovely to wear during the warmer months. We can get the Rebel Bloom lipstick collection here in the UK, but sadly not this shade.

Mini Sephora Haul - Vegas Edition 2016

Hi everyone,

A very good friend of mine recently went back to Las Vegas, and I asked her to pick up a few things which we couldn't get over here in the UK. Its only a small haul because she struggled to get most of the stuff that was my list, but I'm still very thankful for the stuff that she did manage to bring back for me.

Buxom Full On Lip Creams
I managed to get one of these last year in the shade 'Pink Lady' just to see what the formula was like. These have a minty tingling sensation on the lips, which is lovely. So, I decided I wanted a couple of more, and I got the shades 'Berry Blast' and 'Lavender Cosmo'. 'Berry Blast' is a gorgeous dark fuchsia shade, while 'Lavender Cosmo' is a cool toned baby pink shade with a lavender undertone; which is something I don't actually have my make up collection.

Dolce by Dolce & Gabbana Purse Spray
I have just recently purchased this as a 75ml bottle, as ideal to wear during the summer months, and when I noticed on the Sephora website that they have this as a purse spray I couldn't not get it. Even though this is an EDP, its a very light EDP which could possibly disappear throughout the day. So by having a purse spray, it will make it ideal for me to top the scent up throughout the day if needed.

Georgio Armani Si Rollerball x2
This is one of my new favourite fragrances, and its lovely to wear either during the day or a night. It has a sophiscated warmth too it, and its that which I love about it. Because I enjoy the fragrance so much, and asked my friend if she could kindly pick up two rollerballs for me, so then I could keep them in my handbag for when I'm on the go.

Fresh Brown Sugar Rollerball
I decided to pick this up, as I thought it was the scent that Fresh use in their famous lip balms, but I'm not sure about this. Its still lovely and sweet fragrance, with a just a hint a warmth, and the fragrance will get worn mainly during the warmer months as the scent is just so sweet.

I'm really thankful to my friend who managed to pick these up on my behalf, and I'm also looking forward to using these few products, because they are lipglosses and scents which I actually like.
