Product Review – NYX Blotting Paper & Makeup Brush Cleaner

Summer is here and I am loving the long sunny days. A new season usually means new beauty products. It is also a great time to get some stunning photos taken. I found some great Photobox Discount Codes and Vouchers and I am eager to get some personalised Photo Packs in time for Father’s Day this Sunday. Click here for more information.

The warm weather also means I need my blotting paper more than ever!  So I have quickly placed an order for NYX Fresh Face Blotting Paper, after running out of my old pack some days ago. I also decided to grab the NYX Makeup Brush Cleaner since my makeup brushes were in need of a deep clean.

2. It is very affordable at £12 only.

Items to Include in a Mother’s Day Hamper

Mother’s Day is almost here and I have been thinking about what gifts I would get on the day. I have also been thinking about how I would spend the day. If you are thinking of giving a Mum a Mother’s Day Hamper, with affordable items in it, here are some products you may want to include in it. They are all less than £50.


Button & Wilde Body Lotion and Body Wash

Button & Wilde is a luxury brand that specialises in bath and body products you can personalise. These Tarocco Orange & Nutmeg Body Lotion and Body Wash are amazing skincare products. And you even have the option of personalising each product to make it more special.

These skincare products would look great in a Mother’s Day Hamper. And if the Mum in question loves luxury skincare products, then these beauties would make her day even more special.

Colgate Proclinical 250+ Electric Toothbrush

This Colgate Proclinical 250+ Electric Toothbrush is another great item to include in a Mother’s Day gift hamper. I love the fact that it comes in a beautiful pink shade. It would definitely make a great gift for Mother’s Day and many other occasions. Seeing this beauty on my bathroom shelf makes me want to stay the day right.

Smile Jamaica Wireless Bluetooth Earphones

This Smile Jamaica Wireless Bluetooth Earphones by the House of Marley, would be a nice gift for the music lovers. You would catch me listening to music every chance I get, so this is an ideal gift for me. I love the copper colour and design too.

You can give the gift of pampering this Mother’s Day with this Noble Isle Willow Song Lavenham Walk Body Scrub. This sugar exfoliating scrub removes dry, dull skin cells to help promote bright and healthy skin.

StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner

This StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner would be a great gift for makeup lovers like myself with a million and one makeup brushes.
