Online Shopping with Pouch

With the Christmas shopping in full swing, I am on the look out for vouchers and discounts that would help keep the cost of my Christmas shopping as low as possible. I still have quite a few items to get, but I on it and hoping to round-up all my shopping by the first week in December, so wish me luck.

I am doing ALL of my shopping online because I love shopping online and I find it so easy. Shopping online from the comfort of my home, anytime of the day is pure bliss for me. I don’t have to deal with the crowd and general rush going on at the moment.

So you can imagine how excited I was to come across a new shopping browser extension called Pouch.

Pouch is a browser extension that gives users access to the best available voucher code discounts straight to their shopping baskets. You don’t even have to actively search for voucher codes. Once you download the free browser extensions, it appears on your browser tab, and searches for voucher code discounts on retail sites you visit. Pouch ensures users never have to actively search for a voucher code again. Isn’t that the best online shopping tool ever? I think it is.

I downloaded this browser extension some days ago and I found it very user-friendly. It was very easy to download, no registration required. I just went on the website, and clicked on the “Download on Desktop for Free” tab. The download was completed in under 1 minute, and it has worked amazingly well ever since. It sits on the right hand of my browser. Once I click on the icon to check for available voucher codes on a website, all I need to do is simply paste the voucher code I want into the promo code box on the retail website I am shopping on to get the discount.


There are huge discounts available on thousands of UK websites like Marriott, The Body Shop, Adidas, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and many other stores. And these discounts here and there all add up in the end, and help save some money. I got 2 voucher codes on the Sainsbury’s website thanks to Pouch, some days ago.

As an online shopping lover and a very busy woman, I love the fact that Pouch would save me time and money without the hassle.  Once you download the very smart browser extension, it recognises the exact website you are on. When you click on the icon on the browser, it then presents the best available voucher codes for that website. It pretty much does all the work, you don’t even have to think it through.

I think Pouch is a great idea. The technology behind it still amazes me. I like the fact that I don’t have to go from 1 website to another in search of discount codes. And it is also completely free, and always will be.

How is your Christmas shopping going? Have you heard of the Pouch? What are your thoughts?

Product Review – Sheila’s Natural Cream & Veet Hair Removal Cream

I had the pleasure of reviewing two products in the last couple of days and I can’t wait to tell you all about them.

I have been using this Sheila’s Nourishing Face Cream for Normal skin, for a few weeks now, and I like it. It is all I thought it would be and more.

Here is the product description:

A Light silky non-greasy face cream, perfect for youthful & normal skin. This is a delightfully light cream which is slowly absorbed and ideal for younger skins making it a perfect base under makeup as well as a nourishing night cream.

CONS

None. It is a lovely cream. Definitely worth trying.

 

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.

Veet Hair Removal Cream works close to the root even on short hair, giving you smoothness for up to a week.

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.
  2. It is so easy to use. Just apply the cream to the area with the curved part of the spatula, and spread evenly to fully coat the hair. Then rinse off thoroughly and dry after 10 minutes.
  3. It is easily accessible. It can be found in Boots, Asda, Waitrose, Tesco and many other stores.
  4. It is great for sensitive skin.
  5. It can be used on underarms, bikini line, arms and legs.
  6. It is super affordable at £4 in most stores.

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: Vita Coco Coconut Oil

I was sent this Vita Coco Coconut Oil to review some weeks ago, it has been tried and tested and it has a 100% pass mark from me but before I jump right into it, let me tell you a bit about this product.

IMG_3028

Here is what Vita Coco has to say about this Extra Virgin 100% Raw Coconut Oil:

Vita Coco, the company who first brought us delicious tasting coconut water, now brings to our shores its own brand of 100% Organic Coconut Oil. Cold pressed from Organic coconuts, 100% raw and extra virgin, this new addition to the Vita Coco Family is the perfect cooking oil and goes a long way to rescuing dry skin and hair – that’s why people swear by it!

So after some weeks of using this coconut oil almost every day, here are my thoughts on the product:

PROS

  1. This coconut oil is a natural multi-tasker and a good value for money. It can be used from the bathroom to the kitchen, for baking, moisturising, hair conditioning, makeup removal, cooking, you name it, it can do it.

2. Say goodbye to dry skin with this coconut oil. It is a perfect body moisturiser. I have been using it along with my body lotion, everyday for weeks now, and I can see a noticeable difference in my skin. My skin is now smooth and supple.

3. I use it as a weekly hair conditioner. I apply some of it to my hair after washing with a shampoo and I leave in for about 2/3 hours, before rinsing off with a shampoo. It has brought my hair back to life literally. My hair is now growing at a terrific rate, it has stopped breaking and it is no longer as weak and brittle as it used to be.

4. I use this coconut oil as a makeup remover. I apply on my face with a cotton wool and it removes every trace of makeup except waterproof mascara.

5. I love the smell of this coconut oil. It has a sweet, refreshing fragrance, just like a coconut.

6. This coconut oil also serves as my lip balm and it soothes my lips.

7. I love the fact that this Vita Coco coconut oil is readily available in various stores.

CONS

None

Sorry but I can’t fault this product. It is one of the best products I have had the privilege of reviewing this year. If in doubt, just Google up the benefits of the coconut oil, or better still, try this Vita Coco Coconut Oil for yourself, you can grab the 250ml for £5.99 at Tesco, Amazon, Boots, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Waitrose and many more stores.

I love this product. This is the best hair conditioner and skin moisturiser ever. #swearbyit

Have you tried this Vita Coco Coconut Oil? Tell me how you #swear by it. Sound off in the comment section. Thanks for reading.

PS: This product can be used for cooking and baking as well, there are various recipes online but I didn’t use it the kitchen. I am sure it will taste yummy though.
