Have this post written ages but completely forget to press publish! Two sick babas these past few weeks has me all over the place.
1 – Babyliss curling wand
I love curly hair, however I have long thick (very thick!!) hair so curling products get a run for their money with me. I bought this after Christmas in the Debenhams sale for €28. It heats up to 210c which I really need for my thick hair! The barrel itself is quite wide so again ideal for long hair that gives a loose wave as opposed to the tight Irish dancing curl. The box is long thrown out but I found a picture of the box on line see opposite.
I found this really easy to use, and gives a long lasting loose curl. I finish with a small amount of John Freida smoothing serum and I get 2 days out of the curls. To date this is the only product that has managed to curl my mega thick mane so thumbs up for the Babyliss Curling Wand.
2 Soap & Glory Foot cream – Heel Genius
Its like a tradition now in our house my sister buys me the Soap & Glory set for Christmas! I do love my lotions and potions!! This foot cream actually works. Im sure like most people I really neglect my feet in the winter months. I use this a lot especially this time of year to ensure the feet are ready for summer. It is incredibly moisturising – I put it on going to bed and wear socks over it. It contains menthol which has a lovely cooling effect on your feet too. I have tried a good few of the years but tend to always come back to this one.
I got the current one im using in a gift set however from memory its around €8 in most Boots chemists.
3 MeMeMe Shimmer Stack
I love multi purpose products!! Less products to add to my already jam packed handbag (that’s jam packed with kids toys and snacks!). The MeMeMe Shimmer Stack contains 5 separate blocks of colour. This can be used as a bronzer, the individual blocks can also be used as eye shadows and the darker shades for brows. Products like this are ideal for on the go, rather than taking 3 products just take the one!! The colour intensity in this is really good. I bought the bronze but it does come in gold tones and in a rose tone.
I bought this in my local pharmacy for €15 having gone in for teething gel and come out with a make up blender, this shimmer stack and no teething gel!!! I had previously attended an event there where we were shown how to use these products and at the time had received a number of samples and based on the quality of the other products from the range I had tried I knew id like this one too (see September favourites here).
Let me know if you have tried any of the above would love to know you thoughts.
