Product Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Oil

I love my oils, especially in the colder months. It feels amazing using a nourishing oil after a warm shower. Apart from it feeling so good, my skin also thanks me for it.

In my pursuit of a nourishing oil, after running out of my Bio Oil, I came across this New Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil in my local Boots Store, and decided to give it a go.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. Beautiful compact packaging.
  2. It is a non sticky oil.
  3. It is very affordable at £3.99 for a 150ml bottle.
  4. You can get this nourishing oil in most stores – Boots, Superdrug eBay, Amazon, Asda, and so on.
  5. It contains virgin olive oil, which is great for the skin.
  6. I love the fragrance, it is very light and fresh.
  7. The oil is absorbed into my skin very quickly.

CONS

  1. This is for body use only, and should not be applied on the face. I always have to remember this fact, and it can be a bit of a hassle. I rather have an oil, I can apply from head to toe.

Overall, I would recommend this Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil to anyone in need of a nourishing oil, especially if you have a very dry skin, but I don’t see myself buying this particular oil again because of the inconvenience of not being able to use it on my face.

Product Review: L.A.B.2 Makeup Brushes

I love experimenting with new makeup and makeup tools so I was thrilled to discover L.A.B.2 Makeup Brushes.

L.A.B.2 Makeup Brushes Image

L.A.B.2 which stands for ‘Live and Breathe Beauty’, is a beauty brand that aims to inspire makeup beginners and beauty junkies alike.  There is a L.A.B2 makeup brush for every part of the face, so this is one of the perfect brands to shop, and the good news for us UK beauty bloggers, is the fact that we can shop this cool brand at our local Superdrug store. Isn’t that super convenient?

I received quite a few brushes as you can see above, and I am going to review them one by one, so grab a cuppa.

 

L.A.B2 On A Powder Trip Brush

PROS

  1. It feels soft to touch.
  2. It is full, thick and very fluffy.
  3. I like the length of the brush as well. I find some powder brushes too small or too long, but this is the perfect size.
  4. I achieved a flawless look with this powder brush.
  5. It is quite affordable at a sale price of £8.99, was previously £11.99.

CONS

None.

 

L.A.B.2 Read My Lip Brush

My long bristles allow you to easily deposit lip color evenly with every stroke.                                                    
My rounded tip comes to a firm point to provide you with a precise and controlled application; allowing you to line the outer rims of your lips for extra definition.

PROS

  1. I love the fact that this lip brush has a protective lid/cap for when not in use.
  2. The bristles are long enough to easily apply lip colour.
  3. The rounded tip makes it easy for me to apply my lip colour evenly.
  4. It is super affordable at sale price of £4.49, was previously £5.99.

CONS

None.
