Review: Batiste Floral Dry Shampoo

It is no secret that Batiste Dry Shampoo is an absolute staple product for me. I use it loads. Not every day, but nearly. It’s instant refresh means I can wash my fine wispy long hair less often, and means I don’t have to worry about helmet hair! This is the latest incarnation of my

Review: Simple Eye Make Up Corrector Pen

One of the side effects of having a very weak left eye is that I can get my eye makeup just right on one eye, but struggle to make the other one match. So most of the time I don’t bother – not even with mascara. Simple have this useful little pen that helps with

(It’s a Good Job) Beauty is Only Skin Deep

Back in January I made a very important New Year Resolution. I promised that I would be true to myself. I said that I would think about what I really wanted, and strive to get it. I said I would consider carefully who I was, and aim to be like that all the time. Most

Review: E45 Nourish and Restore Lotion (Bzz Review)

I am a Bzz Agent and this is a Bzz Review… Everyone has heard of E45 cream. I certainly had. I associate it with two kinds of people – those with skin complains that require a specific kind of product, and really old people. It is not something I had ever bought for myself –

Review: Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Toothpaste

This year I have promised I will be true to myself. Part of that is trying to look after myself better, to find things that help me feel happier about myself and the way I look. One thing that has always been an issue for me is my teeth… unfortunately a lack of enamel on

Review: Montagne Jeunesse Passion Peel Off Face Masque

LincsGeek and I don’t do Valentine’s Day. We like to think that our love is obvious and doesn’t require a throw-away card or bunch of very expensive flowers to confirm it. Cards and gifts are lovely, but personally I much prefer a surprise something rather than a “because my diary told me I had to”

Review: John Frieda Highlight Activating Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner

The other day a friend commented on my hair – she asked if I’d had it dyed, saying it looked lighter and brighter. I thanked her and explained that no, I haven’t had my hair done for a very long time, but I had started using a new shampoo and conditioner that is designed to

Visionary Soap (Again)

It’s nice to revisit companies here on Splodz Blogz and see what new things they’re up to. Visionary Soap sent me another selection of their products to try out.  As last time the first thing that struck me about these was the incredibly strong scent coming from the soap, body butter and bath melt. Wow. I’ve had

Lush Christmas Gifts

Lush have a massive range of products ideal to give as Christmas gifts. I was very lucky to receive a lovely box of products so I could let you know what I thought… Christmas Party is one of Lush’s ready made gift boxes, wrapped in bright paper and with gold ribbon it is a ready-to-give

Dove Colour Radiance (Bzz Review)

I am a BzzAgent and this is a Bzz Review…  As someone who colours her hair, I invited to take part in a new Bzz campaign for Dove Colour Radiance Shampoo and Conditioner. I was sent a bottle of each to try at home along with some samples and vouchers to share with friends. I

Batiste Paisley and Graffiti

Regular readers of Splodz Blogz will know that I am a fan of Batiste, and I don’t mind telling you again. The (lovely) dry shampoo company has recently released two new scents, and I was very pleased to receive a tin of each in the post to try out when I got back from my

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masques

Montagne Jaunesse have recently launched two new “ground-breaking” face masques. They sent me one of each to try out – I like reviews that force me to take some relax for a few minutes! The Dead Sea Mud Spa and Glacial Clay Spa masques are said to deliver a unique and enhanced cleansing experience. They

Denman Classic Styling Brush

A brush is something you use every single day. Well you’re supposed to, I have been known to go a day without using one but then I look like a complete mess. Anyway, it is an everyday well-used item, so you might as well have a good one. This is the Denman Classic Styling Brush,
