Wicked Wednesday ; Unicorn Make-up your beauty ESSENTIAL??!

Wicked Wednesday Went Wild : WITH…Unicorn glitter, just because you can.

Rating ; Flippant Flirty Fun & absolutely Frivolous. Don’t read on if you’re easily DAZZLED and WARNING you definitely do NOT need this product.  But – sometimes especially on a grey wet Wednesday just say ‘whatever’ and grab some.   Festival season isn’t over yet so go on its wild Wednesday. 

Inside scoop ; Unicorn Glitter bring it ON.  Ok it’s Wednesday, you’re probably in a serious meeting, or bored, or grumpy, or just wishing for the weekend 🙂 to hurry on up, then along came UNICORN GLITTER.  Wrong, OTT, sparkling magic dust ;  just for the sheer heck of it : Unicorn glitter. YES!

Can’t say you need it, nor will you wear it everyday, but whilst Festival Season is still just about in swing then I say rock on, glitter up and work it.

Chocolate Tuesday; so good I covered myself in it

NOT as bizarre as it sounds I love chocolate, I love skincare, it was only a matter of time before I mixed my passions…

Rating ; Chokky-wooky-oh-LaLa, a mid week treat for your skin and yourself!  Following nicely on from Coco Loco Monday Manic Monday? Don’t go Mad : go CoCo!! comes Choccie Tuesday.  Ok you got me I AM partial to more than a cube of chocolate (ALWAYS from fridge for me) but recently I’ve begun to cover myself in it too!!!   MASSIVE anti-ageing benefits for older skin, or any skin really.

Inside scoop ; Chocolate skincare isn’t as weird as it sounds and like it’s edible companion it’ll soon be my next addiction.  Why because it’s packed full of antioxidants and makes your skin feel great.  True reason why, it just kind of feels a little bit secretly dirty, indulgent and YUMMY.

Top of my Willy wonka skin list is a beauty brand fav of mine Lush with their chocolate mask .  Straight out of the choc factory this smells rich dark and indulgent and just glides on for a yummy mid week masking treat. 

My other recent mask post, also reflecting, oddly contains a food ingredient too! Honey ; Behind the MASK ; to Mask or not to Mask? Hmm note to self must not obsess ONLY about food.

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny ; Squeaky-Cleany

Rating ; You’d be balm-y not to try this, and no apologies this won’t be my only or last balm-rave, nor cleansing post. Butter, balm, melt in your palm, this dinky pot packs a cleansing punch & will have you squeaky clean faster than a jet powered rubber duck.

Inside scoop;  Butter, melty, softy-gently oh-so-effective I switched to cleansing balms/butters some time ago and am mildly obsessed.  Especially kind to sensitive and/or more mature skin they whip off make-up in a flash without the rash! Super-soft melting buttery balm this Body Shop Cleansing Butter was recommended by a friend to me and I’ve never looked book.  I wear alot of make-up, ok really alot, so if it whips off mine, trust me it works.

I confess I’m balmy about beauty balms I launched one of the first ‘rescue balm’s’ nearly 10 years ago  & now there’s a billion balms for all occasions.  Be warned some as you’d think can be a little over greasy, more like vaseline than balm and definitely don’t always do what they say on the tin. However Cleansing is a balm-match made in heaven as it gets in deep, lifts off make-up and impurities, but you can still freshen after with a toner. They call it sumptuous, I call this one plain effective and no-nonsense.
