Zoella Beauty tutti fruity- Fresh Fizz Bar


Zoella - Zoella beauty - Tutti fruity - bath fizz - fragranced bath frizz - fresh fizz bar - review - bath products

If you watch Youtube, you will without doubt have heard of Zoella, After becoming the queen of Youtube and having more followers than many A-listers, Zoe then turned her hand to designing a line of beauty products. Due to the success of her first range, Zoe has recently added a new selection of
products.

Her new range are a selection of pamper products with a distinct fresh and fruity scent hence the range being called Tutti Fruity. Not only do they smell good enough to eat they come in equally as gorgeously girly packaging. The range starts from £3.00 and the most expensive product being the body mist which is £8,00. Which is fab pricing especially since a lot of her fans are younger.

As a self confessed beauty addict it was going to be a struggle to not purchase at least one of the products considering how good they smelt. I picked out the fresh fizz bar as I love nothing more than a relaxing bath, so this seemed like the perfect product for me to try out.

The bar comes in super pretty green colour with pink polka dots and bright pink lace style detailing. It without doubt has a Zoe feel to it! You get 4 individual cubes which are imprinted with Z's and cute bows.

Drop a chunk into warm running water to start your fragrantly fizzy bath. This adorable treat will transform your bath into a fragrant, fruity soak to leave you feeling refreshed and re-energised.

So with my bath running and my candles lit I popped a cube under the tap. It started fizzing straight away and it gave of a a fresh and citrusy scent. The scent isn't to overpowering but does fill the room. Once finished fizzing which didn't take too long unfortunately, it leaves the water ever so slightly cloudy. The water was very soft and felt amazing on the skin. I live in a hard water area so really did notice the difference. I laid back and enjoyed a devine bath.

After the bath, I felt so refreshed and my skin felt really silky. The only thing I would change would be the longevity of the fizz other than that it is the perfect way to relax on a summers night. Hopefully Zoe will add some more products in the winter with a wintery scent as I'd love to add those to a steamy bath when the temperatures drop again.

Hair REV - Hair Supplements

Hair REV - Hair supplements - healthy growing hair - dietary supplements - Hair growth tablets - review

Like most of us I'm always looking for ways to make my hair healthier and grow quicker, spending hundreds on hair products each year, we could be overlooking one of the easiest and cost effective ways to help our hair by getting the right vitamins and nutrients. Although most of us try to get the right vitamins from our diets it's easier said than done. So these supplements make it a lot simpler to ensure you're getting what your hair needs. 

I was sent these supplements by Hair Rev to try. I was really excited to give these ago and see if supplements really do make a difference to my hairs growth and overall condition.

If you read my blog regularly you'll know I'm guilty of one of the worst things you can do to your hair, bleaching it. I have mousy brown hair naturally so to get my silver hair colour my hair needed to be bleached and my roots need doing at least every month. Not the best way to help your hair grow and look healthy. My hair is quite long but it snaps easily and I shed hair constantly. So I couldn't wait to give these a shot, hoping these would help my new hair growth be stronger.

Like with all supplements you should check with your GP before using. So once I'd checked they wouldn't interfere with any of the medication I take. I had my first pill, the tablets are averaged sized about 2cm in length and slipped down easily with a sip of water. You are advised to take the tablets three times a day with food so I kept the bottle in my handbag so I could grab them during the day.

The tablets are filled with vitamins and ingredients added with your hair in mind. So what is in them and why?


  • Biotin: This key supplement helps to improve keratin level in your body, which leads to healthy growing hair. It improves hair elasticity and protects the hair from dryness. It also helps thicken the hair to give the appearance of fullness. No wonder why we've added it in our formula!
  • Zinc: It helps to keep the hair follicles strong, maintaining your hair strong.
  • Calcium: Of all the minerals your body contains, calcium is the most abundant. It is essential for many bodily processes, including healthy hair growth. The calcium in your hair helps to stimulate communication between cells, thereby promoting hair growth and healthy follicles.
  • Folic Acid: This is important in maintaining the colour of your hair and promoting hair growth.
  • Vitamin B: Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 are all antioxidant and all play a vital role in healthy hair growth. Deficiency in these vitamins can lead to hair loss, so you’d better be taking them seriously!
  • Vitamin A: This vitamin is another antioxidant, great for your hair and scalp health as it prevents it drying out.
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C deficiencies can cause hair that is weak, lusterless, and prone to breakage. And that’s the opposite of what we are looking for!
  • Vitamin D: It helps the body absorb calcium (which is great as our formula also has calcium!) and prevents hair shedding.


 … And a lot of vitamins!

It took two weeks for me to really notice any difference, however my hair seemed shiner and weirdly less knotty. My hair appeared stronger and there was a lot less breakage, which is exactly was hoping to achieve. I can;t say I noticed my hair had grown quicker than previously, yet I imagine you would need to be taking the supplements for slightly longer to notice real changes of growth. I also noticed all my other body hair appeared to grow quicker so I do think it was making a difference lol.

Overall I am really impressed with the Hair REV supplements and they have really made a difference to my hair. So if your looking for a way to improve the condition of your hair it may well be worth investing in supplements. I have 3 exclusive codes for you to use, if you want to try out HairRev for yourself and giving your hair a boost.

La Roche- Posay Micellar Make up Remover Gel

La Roche - Posay - Combination skin - sensitive skin - normal skin - french skincare - French Pharmacy - Escentual - review - swatch - make up remover - cleanser - micellar gel - Make up Remover Micellar water gel

Whether you love skincare regimes or find it all a bit of a faff. It's a part of any beauty lovers routine that we all know we should be doing. I have a real love//hate relationship with skincare, I love the difference it makes to my skin and when I have the time I really enjoy getting out all my lotions and potions. I hate it when I'm tired or in a rush and I'd rather be doing anything rather than carrying out a long skincare routine. Rather than reaching for the dreaded face wipes what else can we do? La Roche - Posay have come up with a revolutionary new way to remove your make up.

Could La Roche - Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel, a no rinse cleansing gel be the answer to our tired night time routine? The La Roche - Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel* is a fuss free gel that is applied to a damp face then wiped off with a cotton wool pad.

Cased in a blue coloured, easy to use pump bottle. The gel itself is clear yet in the bottle the gel looks like a bottle of cheap hair gel lol. It doesn't however have the same nasty ingredients. The gel is free from soap, alcohol and has no colourants or parabens. This with its physiological PH and La Roche - Posay Thermal spring water, makes it perfect for even sensitive skin.

La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel is a gel facial cleanser which gently cleanses normal to combination sensitive skin. The physiological formulation with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water contains cleansing agents selected for optimal tolerance, high make-up removal power whilst hydrating and soothing the skin.

The directions on the bottle are ridiculously unclear stating "apply to wet face. No rinsing." To use I simply wet my face after removing my eye make up (with my facial make up still in tact) Then apply a few pumps of the gel to my hands and gently apply the gel to my face. Then with a cotton wool pad wipe over my face removing the gel and make up at the same time. I then repeat again and my skin is make up free.

It felt really cooling on the skin and soothed any irritated patches. It's not at all harsh and has a pleasant, subtle scent. After the second cleanse my skin feels really clean without feeling dry. I'm really enjoying using this, I found it does take a few goes to remove medium to heavy make up. I don't know if this is because it's so gentle.

Overall I really love how gentle and soothing it is to the skin. It still takes a little while to be make up free, so it doesn't exactly answer my prayers for quick, one wash make up remover. It does however make cleansing a breeze and leaves your skin feeling amazing. It's perfect for the summer months when make up tends to be lighter and the cooling sensation is godsend during the hotter weather.

To get this and other La Roche - Posay products. Check out Escentual for their amazing offers on French Pharmacy products throughout June

Have you tried this? What skincare products are you loving? What French Pharmacy products do you swear by? How do you remove your make up when you can't be bothered? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.
