Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser

Hey Ladies :-D Today im going to review my most favorite face cleanser. I have been using this product for a couple of weeks now and im totally LOVING it and wanted to share my experience with you.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser 
100ml Pump

Beautiful Yea?!

'We only make one cleanser because this formulation is the ultimate in concentrated yet gentle cleansing power and works on every age and skin type'

About the product:

The best thing about Liz Earle products are that they are all made out of natural ingredients! You dont have to worry about what you are feeding to your skin.. its all natural and good so you can feel free to try out their stuff without any worries. :-D


Aqua (water), Caprylic/capric triglyceride, Theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, Cetearyl alcohol, Cetyl esters, Sorbitan stearate, Polysorbate 60, Glycerin, Cera alba (beeswax), Propylene glycol, Humulus lupulus (hops) extract, Panthenol, Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) extract, Anthemis nobilis (chamomile) extract, Eucalyptus globulus (eucalyptus) oil, Limonene, Citric acid, Sodium hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dehydroacetic acid, Polyaminopropyl biguanide.

If you see the product, you will notice it has a real posh looking appearance like a spa product. hehe! Yea its a really stylish pump bottle.. not girly though (wish it had a little pink :P ) but very posh and expensive looking.

How to use:

  1. Massage 2 pumps of the cleanser onto face and neck with fingertips. Nicely massage to remove all dirt and makeup. Dont worry about massaging your eyes with this product because its VERY gentle and it doesnt sting your eyes at all.
  2. Rinse the muslin cloth in hot water (hand hot water not too hot!!! so be careful) and wring out and gently wipe off the cleanser off face and neck. You can keep rinsing the cloth and wiping till all the dirt and makeup gets removed. Dont rub or be hard on the skin because there is no need for that. This cleanser will gently remove makeup without being harsh.
  3. Wash face with cold water and let it dry.
Then you can use your favorite toner and moisturiser and its done :-D

And always REMEMBER to wash your muslin cloth well after each use and let it air dry. And after 2 - 3 uses you can machine wash the cloth to avoid dirt or bacteria building up.

Texture of the cleanser:

It has a very creamy thick texture and its really easy to massage onto the skin. You dont need too much of the product.. just about 2 pumps are good enough. 

What i have here is the 100ml pump starter kit:
100ml Pump Starter Kit £13.25
It consists of:

One 100ml pump bottle and 2 muslin cloths and its comes in this real cute zip up bag.

Its a real cute zip bag where you can store your muslin cloths and keep them from getting dirty.

These muslin cloths are 100% cotton, very gentle onto the skin. Maybe the very first time you use it you may feel its a little rough but after a wash or two it becomes really soft and gentle.

So now what does this cleanser do?
  • Cleans face really well and removes all dirt and impurities especially after a long sweaty day out and makes skin look and feel fresh and clean
  • REMOVES MAKEUP! I know alot of cleansers claim to remove makeup but it doesnt really do it but this cleanser removes every bit of makeup so your makeup removing routine is much more faster and easier.
  • Gently exfoliates skin 
  • After a few weeks of using this product you will notice a change in your skin. Skin looks more smoother and healthy and feels real soft.

Reasons to LOVE this product:

The main reason would be that i dont have to feel worried about what i use for my face everyday because this product has all naturally active ingredients.

Another relief is that i dont have to mess with olive oil anymore for removing eyeliner and mascara because it had always been a long boring routine every night. I dont have to wash and rewash my face with different cleansers to make sure all my makeup is gone. This cleansing method is so easy and quick. I know you might think its a big hassle but trust me.. this is quick and for those who use makeup everyday you can save alot of time when trying to remove your makeup.. and you can go to bed early :-D

This is a MULTI AWARD WINNING CLEANSER!!! It has been given so many awards during the past few years.. you can go have a look by Clicking HERE and is also chosen as the BEST FACE CLEANSER OF 2011 according to a survey done on this website.. Click HERE

Reasons to NOT LOVE this product?! 

The price?! Yes.. its a bit pricey. BUT you can use this cleanser and not have to spend on all the other bottles and tubes that you buy to cleanse, remove makeup, to deep cleanse etc etc. This one product does all that so i think its not a crime to spend a little more money to buy something of such good quality.And you can use this product for quite sometime.. its a 100ml bottle and just 2 pumps each wash.. so it will last you long. :-D 

One problem is the availability. You cant just hop into your local supermarket and grab a bottle. Well ofcourse you cant do that.. can you. :P You have to order it online or ask one of your friends in the UK to get a bottle for you and bring it along when they come on their yearly vacations :P (PERFECT PLAN)

Will i recommend this product?

Yes definitely :-D

If you want to know more about this cleanser or check out their other products. You can go visit their website by Clicking HERE 

So ladies hope you enjoyed my review! Now its time to tell me your thoughts! Have you used this product? Do you love it as much as i do?

Product was sent by company for reviews but that has no effects on my honest opinions.

Have a Pink Day :-D

NOWTEES 50% Clearance Sale!!

Hey Ladies! How are you? Im good and im excited :-D WHY? Because Nowtees is having their summer sale and its so awesome. So many colors and designs and its 50% off for a selection of Mens t shirts! So its time to do some shopping for our men for half the price. :-D Who doesnt love deals right.

For those who know about Nowtees clothing.. you will know exactly what im talking about but if you dont. Please do check out their website by clicking HERE and they have a 50% off on a few selected items as their website says so. 

They have a nice collection of womens stuff too! (though we women dont get a 50% off our clothing i guess) Tshirts, Kurtas, Dupattas etc. So maybe you can get something nice for you too.


I had many of their t shirts when i was in Islamabad and i always enjoy the different colors and the silly stuff that says on their tshirts :P its very cute and girly. This one here is one of my favs and i have been using it for 2 yrs now! hehe.. and its still good and looks wearable to me.

It needs a bit of ironing i guess. 

Anyways i used to wear this all the time until i got pregnant and it doesnt fit anymore :( its so comfortable.. the short sleeves and the high neck.. its a pretty top isnt it :-D 

This is what it says ------>

Hehe! i think its real cute! Nothing too fancy.. a simple cute top and you can wear it at home.. when you're out with friends for a bit of shopping.. or even when you sleep. 

They got different sizes so you dont have to worry about whether it would fit you or not.. and this size i got here is S (small).

So is this your thing? If it is, go have a look at their collection and let me know what you think! AND YEA THEY SHIP WORLDWIDE :-D

Have a Pink Day :-D

The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter

Hey Ladies! Todays review will be on a body butter that i like.. its just about to finish so i thought of doing my reviews before on it i totally finish it up.

For Normal to Dry Skin:

 An intensive creamy all-over body moisturiser. It absorbs into the skin easily, helping to condition, soften and smooth the skin and prevent dryness, leaving your skin moisturised for up to twenty four hours.

There is something you should know about me before you read my reviews. :-D I hardly finish stuff, most of my products are just half used and lying around because i get bored pretty soon and look for new stuff.. me finishing a product is rare.. so if i do use up something.. you should know something is up :P

So this is a purple coloured tub. We all know The Body Shop Body Butter comes in a tub which is a little inconvenient to use but since their body butters are so good we just have to ignore this little disadvantage.

What i think about this product:

Passion Fruit sounds so fruity and fresh.. you would expect the product to smell really good BUT no.. it really doesnt have a pleasant smell. :-(  When i first opened the tub there was a slight fruity smell of passion fruits but as days passed by i think that smell just disappeared and is replaced by this really artificial weird smell but its not terrible so you can just ignore it.

How good is the product?

I started using this when i was pregnant. My skin was getting itchy and dry.. and thats when i laid hands on this. Its SUPER moisturizing! Makes skin smooth and soft and it really helped calm down the itchiness. :-D I apply it 2 times a day and i was relieved of all dryness and there was no itching and no stretch marks. BUT i dont think this body butter prevents stretch marks because it was during the 1st trimester that i used this so i cant be that sure but i think it helps keep skin really moisturized so that helps prevent stretch marks from appearing. Anyway i wont recommend it for stretch marks because there are other better products made especially for preventing them so you should use something especially formulated for preventing stretch marks in order to prevent them. ( i will do a post on this soon)

See how much i have used up ----------->

Will i recommend?

Yes and No

Yes - keeps skin soft and smooth
No- i hate the smell

Have you used this product?

Benefit Bad gal Lash Mascara

Hey Ladies! Today im going to review a mascara! :-D I know.. i review alot of mascaras yea? I love mascaras and its always fun to keep trying new stuff to find out whats the best of them all. So lets get started!

Benefit Bad gal Lash Mascara

Looks really pretty --->

If you look close.. you will notice this mascara tube is quite big! Its big and very pretty looking. And the mascara wand is also quite big.

What i think about this mascara:

The first impression you get from looking at the packaging and the huge pretty tube is that it has alot of product inside.. well it does and it does last long too!

Reasons to love this product:

  • Has alot of product so you can use it for a long time
  • No Clumping
  • Gives length so its good for people who have really short lashes
  • Gives a slight curl.. VERY slight though

Reasons to NOT love this product:

  • Doesn't add much volume to lashes.. i know it sounds strange but it doesn't and makes lashes stick out
  • It has a big wand which some may feel is an advantage but for me its actually difficult to apply mascara using it and i always feel a little scared that i might poke my eyes with it :P 
  • NOT waterproof! im not a great fan of stubborn waterproof mascara but this product just melts down when the weather is really hot which gives you raccoon eyes
  • Doesn't stay up long.. you need to keep reapplying the product every few hours
  • A bit pricey

So overall i dont like this product and wouldnt recommend it. 

Will i repurchase?

Have you used this product?
What are your reviews?

Liz Earle Botanical Essence™ No.1 Perfume

Hey Ladies! How are you? Today im going to review a product that was sent to me for review by Liz Earle Naturally Active Skincare few days back :-D Well i guess everyone would know about them yea? In case you dont know about them.. here are some lovely things that you SHOULD know. 
  • All their products are made using natural ingredients! I know! isnt that really awesome! So its definitely safe to try them out. My eyes always pop when i see the word 'natural' :-D
  • They have a wide range of skincare products that work for all skin types 
  • They are an award winning skincare company! Check out all the awards they have received by Clicking HERE
  • They have a wonderful customer care service! Trust me they are so friendly and ever ready to help you with all your inquiries, problems, questions or you simply want to talk to them.. they are there. :-D And they reply to your mail so fast.
  • They ship worldwide so doesnt matter where you live.. im sure they can reach you unless ofcourse you're in a strange land where you dont have mail services! 
So those are some of the lovely things i know about Liz Earle. If you are interested to find out more details. Please check their website by Clicking HERE

Now we can move onto the review :-D

Liz Earle Botanical Essence™ No.1 Perfume

After looking at the image of this perfume on their website.. honestly i didnt know what to expect. And i was wondering what a perfume which has over 98% natural ingredients would smell like! Finally my perfume arrived and here you go! This is what it looked like:

It came in a super cute hardcover box! And i was so impressed! hehe.. i know you must be wondering who gets excited by looking at perfume packaging.. but see the pictures below and you would know what i mean :P

You can open the box by pulling this blue tag and opens up like a drawer :-D so you dont have to worry about tearing or breaking the box and you can keep the box to store the perfume safely.

And there you are:

Its safely packed in this box which makes carrying this perfume more safer and those who love to keep their perfumes in its package would find this very impressive.

What i think about the fragrance:

A very beautiful classy bottle just like its smell :-D and has a really tight lid which secures the bottle and helps keep the fragrance locked inside. Its easy to carry around in your handbag with its box or even without it. Its a strong bottle and you dont have to worry about keeping it into your handbag when travelling.

50ml spray
This is what the company says:

For our first ever fragrance we’ve used the finest natural botanical ingredients from around the world and the expert skills of a distinguished perfumer from Grasse, France. We gave him the time to indulge in the age-old art of perfumery, skilfully hand-crafting this complex scent with true passion to create this vibrant, sparkling fragrance translating into warmth and sensuality.

Fragrance notes: 

Top Notes: Fresh citrus notes from orange, bergamot, cardamom, mandarin and lemon

Middle Notes: Softer floral notes which develop from rose absolute, lavender, coriander, nutmeg and geranium

Base Notes: Warm woody base notes from tonka bean absolute, cedarwood, vetivert and patchouli.

Now if we come to its fragrance! Its a burst of freshness! And when i first spray it on me im totally enveloped by the smell of oranges and mandarins! Its a super cool fragrance.. a light fragrance for the summer.. nothing too strong . The idea is to spray some right after coming out of the shower and you feel so fresh and cool all day long. 

The fragrance is long lasting but you would know the citrus notes fade after awhile and the other notes start working away. This isnt a perfume that would turn heads when you walk into a room but something that mixes and blends in with you and makes you smell fresh and feel fresh.

A perfect summer fragrance that doesnt make you feel heavy and sweaty.. a super summer treat :-D Just add this in with your other summer essentials and start your day! 

Will i recommend it?

Yes :-D This is added to my summer besties!

Hope you liked my review! Have you tried this fragrance? What are your reviews?

Product was sent by company for reviews but that has no effects on my honest opinions.

Have a Pink Day :-D

The Babes Passion Berry Oriflame for Women

Hey Ladies! Been very busy and a little tired so couldnt blog much past few days but im back now :-D Today my review will be on a cute perfume!

The Babes Passion Berry Oriflame for Women:

Passion Berry is the babe that is not used to be one of many - she is in charge of the team! The fragrance explodes with juicy red fruits and freesia. Confidence comes from the heart due to rose, jasmine and lily of the valley, while patchouli and musk leave an irresistible trail.

Available as 25 ml EDT.

This perfume comes from the Babes range which has 3 perfumes -->

cute :-D

After looking hard at all 3 i decided to get the pink head because she was the leader of the group and had lovely pink hair!

But after buying it i realised.. the head doesnt come painted pink :( we have to paint it pink ourselves! Which was such a disappointment!! 

This is what it looked like:

and it came with these: (the perfume bottle)

and 3 sheets of stickers to decorate your doll:

So basically the idea is to decorate the doll ourselves using the stickers the way we want.. well its a cute idea and its loads of fun really BUT i really would have loved it more if it came painted and ready to get started with!

So after an hour of decorating my doll.. she looked like this:

hehe.. yea you guessed right! im soooooooo lazy i didnt have the patience to paint her hair so i left it white! 

and i decorated the perfume bottle using a few of the stickers that remained!

This doll is just a cover for the perfume bottle as you can see here:

So now going onto how much i liked/disliked this fragrance!

It has a very mild fruity smell.. a smell of fruits and flowers! A very girly fragrance.. reminds you of the days when you were in school and all you wanted to smell of was fruits and fruits! Yes.. its a little girl's fragrance :-)
It has a nice smell yes.. but i dont think it suits us ladies.. maybe our little girls or our nieces and little cousins :P So its a perfect gift to girls who have just started using perfumes.

I was a little disappointed with the smell.. i think i expected something completely different but then again.. its a perfume that comes with a doll so i think its shouldnt really be a surprise.

The fragrance lasts few hours.. it has a decent lasting power.

Reasons to love this:

  • Looks cute
  • If you love decorating then its super fun
  • Something different
  • Its a happy fragrance

Reasons to stay away:

  • Its a little expensive 
  • We have all passed our 'school girl' days
  • Painting the head pink is a pain
  • Repurchasing the perfume would mean you would end up with 2 dolls.. there isnt an option of simply purchasing the perfume without its cover

So overall i would say.. its a cute perfume but its simply not my thing! I use it during the day time sometimes when i go out for a few hours.. its a day perfume and works well for the summer.. makes you feel like a little girl with cute little piggytails :P

Me going off now.. so you tell me.. have you tried this fragrance? What are your reviews?

Have a Pink Day! :-D
