I was extremely overjoyed when these beauties landed on my doorstep. I am a makeup lover and I love Rimmel London so finding these in the post was good. I am always up for trying new makeup. My makeup bag is currently loaded with a variety of makeup products and brands and I love it. Variety is indeed the spice of life.

I have used quite a number of Rimmel London products and I have many of them in my makeup bag. I always head for the Rimmel London stand at my local Boots store. I like that their products are affordable and good, and the new Scandaleyes Reloaded range is no different.

I mentioned in the Summer is Here post, that I have started using a hair removal cream for the first time, and it has been magical. Well, say hello to Veet Hair Removal Cream for Sensitive skin.

Here is what Veet has to say about this product:

While removing hair effectively, New Veet Hair Removal Cream not only hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours, but its new fragrance technology also ensures that there is no lingering malodour.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It performs brilliantly. I have used this hair removal cream on my underarms and legs and it took off all the hairs within 10 minutes.

CONS

None. I can’t fault this product. It is a lot better than shaving, and it leaves the skin feeling and looking very smooth. I can’t recommend it enough.

What do you think of both products? Have you tried any of them before?

Product Review: Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner

IMG_3431

When I got an email offering me a chance to review the Rug Doctor’s latest product – Portable Spot Cleaner, I took the offer with both hands. We regularly rent the Rug Doctor Machine to deep clean the carpets every now and again, so this was a golden opportunity. We have a cream carpets all over the house, and with two busy toddlers and a blogger that is forever testing various samples and staining the carpets, we cannot afford not to clean our carpets regularly. So you can imagine how excited I was to try out this new machine.

The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner was sent along with the following products:

Rug Doctor Portable Machine Spot Cleaner

High Foot Traffic Cleaner

Rug Doctor Oxy Cleaner

Here is what Rug Doctor had to say about the new machine:

RUG DOCTOR – The Next Generation Clean.

x2 Suction* compared to leading portable carpet cleaners
The ONLY Portable Spot Cleaner with a handheld motorised brush for deep down cleaning
No more carrying. Comes with wheels and a new retractable handle that allows you to effortlessly wheel the machine to the stain… and back! Size of machine allows easy storage.

Here are my thoughts:

PROS

  1. It does the job. Most of stains and spots on our carpets are gone.
  2. It is very portable; the luggage style handle and carpet friendly wheels means it is quite easy to move around, this is particularly great when cleaning the staircases.
  3. The machine is readily available to buy from Rug Doctor, Tesco, Morrisons, Argos, B&Q, and other stores.
  4. It is cheaper and more convenient than hiring professionals to do the clean. You can grab yours at £154.99.

After the clean

CONS

  1. We couldn’t clean the carpets in an upright position, like how you would vacuum, we had to bend down all through the cleaning.

Overall, I will recommend the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Removal Cleaner to anyone whose carpet is needing a bit of TLC, and a good clean. It is perfect for busy families with children and pets. It is a handy machine to have around.
