GoBo Deodorising Fluid With Rosewater* Review

Hi lovelies, I hope you all are well!

I have been abit mia here but the holy month of Ramadhan is upon us so I have been super busy in that but I wanted to type my thoughts on this amazing deodorant sent by the lovely people at Lamonts and Co/Howling Moon PR. It was definitely worth talking about so let's read more about GoBo and how they are different compared to other leading skincare brands..

The next generation in natural deodorant.

GoBo is the perfect companion to detox your underarms from years of heavy deodorant use in order to switch to a natural aluminium free deodorant. Detoxing your underarms can help rid your body of product build up which can actually make smell worse and make deodorants less effective.
“Underarms are meant to sweat naturally but that doesn't mean you have to smell by the end of the day”

Glycolic acid detox deodorant for deep stubborn sweat and grime build up.
Create beautifully smooth and soft underarms that can sweat naturally without any odour.
Say good bye to pigmentation and ingrowing hairs forever and discover baby soft underarms that you never thought possible.
Glycolic acid kills bacteria deep in the epidermis and gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, removing dead skin cells.

Functional deodorant:
• No scent necessary to mask odour
• Aluminium free
• Paraben free
• Alcohol free
• Essential oil free
Added benefits include:
• Prevents in growing hairs and painful blocked sweat glands
• Fades dark pigmentation caused by shaving

Before I start my review I just found out that this deodorant has been voted #1 by Good Housekeeping! Now this isn't your average deo.. it is simply so much more!
Let's first understand the difference between Deodorant and Antiperspirants. Antiperspirants contain aluminium this helps to prevent you from sweating. Deodorants, on the other hand, work to mask or neutralise the smell of body odour.
The Rose* GoBo is my new go to and I opted to try this since it is one of my favourite scents. It's very gentle and the roll on passes just the right amount of product on your under arm area. It isn’t sticky or runny and it doesn’t leave your under arm feeling wet as it instantly dries into the skin. The deodorants contain glycolic acid to kill bacteria deep in the epidermis and gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, removing dead skin cells. It's like a daily pamper to your under arms, something traditional deodorants don't do.
There are four scent options to choose from Original (Unscented), Orange Blossom, Jasmin and Rose and they are priced at £9.99 each and available from Amazon.
In terms of scent this is very subtle, but it's a good thing as it won't overpower any perfume or fragrance that you might be wearing.
After application, it instantly makes me feel super fresh and I honestly do feel fresh throughout the day, I would say it lasts around the 8 -12 hour mark before having to reapply it again. I don't usually perspire alot but this definitely makes me feel different in a sense that I feel more fresher than when I use my usual spray on deodorant. The added goodness is that it also gently exfoliates the skin too, which means no more ingrown hairs and pigmentation will be gone too! This cruelty free product is definitely maybe the only deodorant you could ever need and I honestly don't think I will be going back to my spray on since this doesn't feel like you are piling on the product to simply mask any odour, it just feels like it tackles the perspiration from the root and sorting ingrown hairs, if any.

I definitely, without a doubt will recommend this natural deodorant to all! It seems to be working for me and I agree with the claims given to this product. Hats off to the creators of this deodorant, it's about time we had some "back to basics" skincare that actually works without the need for any chemicals and artificial nasties.

Shop Small Businesses | Tara Cosmetics

Hi lovelies, hope you all are well!

Today's post is about small business appreciation. The other day I was browsing local makeup businesses and this one really caught my eye. The pink aesthetic, the handmade lipglosses and the way Tara Cosmetics advertised her products. It wasn't even my intention to buy anything but then within the next minute, I added two lipglosses into my cart and I am so glad I did. 

Tara has really put so much effort into her packaging too! I love how everything matched so well, from the ever so cute pink paper bag, thank you stickers, the business card and the extras that came in my parcel too. It's so nice when businesses add a lil extra. I got two adorable stickers and a jolly rancher candy, how sweet?!

Now onto the actual lipglosses, I chose the strawberry shortcake (on the left £2.80) and floral (on the right £2.49) I really adore both of these, the strawberry shortcake is super moisturising and has the most yummiest scent ever, smells just like sweet strawberries and the scent isn't even overpowering. This has a slight light pink tint but it comes out slightly clear on the lips. The cute strawberry decals adds a nice touch and makes it a visually pretty product to look at. I love how you can choose which packaging you want the lipgloss to come in, I chose the candy tube.
Floral is such a stunning gloss, this rose scented gloss is so hydrating and I love how you can see the dried rose petals and gold leaf. When I checked the ingredients, I was amazed that it didn't even contain that many things, just good old fashioned natural/organic oils and flavourings.
The price is just right because you get quite alot of gloss for the price and for the effort that is put into making these. Tara Cosmetics also sells other aesthetically pretty lipglosses and body butters so it's a lovely range of face and body products to try out.

I would definitely recommend checking out Tara Cosmetics, there is something for everyone and you wouldn't be disappointed! I love my products so much and I keep my lipglosses in my purse at all times.

Until next time! Take care you lovely lot! xx

Boots Beauty Haul

Hi lovelies, hope you all are well!

Bringing it back to what I love to post, a haul! A while back I visited my Boots store to simply pick up a pack of face wipes but then I ended up browsing the make-up section and I came back with some new products *major face palm*

It ok though since there was on offer on many brands plus I needed a new eyebrow pencil. You honestly just cannot win. 

So here's a round up of what I bought!

Soap and Glory Archery Pencil in 'Brown'

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Birthday Suit'

Frank Body Original Lip Scrub

Soap and Glory Archery Pencil £6.66* was a third off!

I really love S&G but one product I didn't try was this. It was meant to be because only these were on offer and the shade matches the colour of my brows. On one side of the pencil you have the highlighter that is used to create the illusion of higher and tidier brows and the other, a brow shade to fill and define the brows. The formulation is very workable, creamy and a great product to use on the go.

Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in 'Birthday Suit' £2.49* was half price!

I have heard great things about Sleek's lip products and seeing as they were half price so why not. I opted for the shade Birthday Suit and it is such a me kinda shade. A warm nude rose pink that applies beautifully and is very pigmented! This is Sleek's no 1 best selling lip product and I can definitely see why! It feels super light and you don't even have to build up the colour. A great addition to my collection and I will, for sure check out the other colours.

Frank Body Original Lip Scrub £11.95

A lip scrub was on my to buy list, I have heard of Frank Body before but I have never tried anything from them. This lip scrub is so nice! Smells like coffee beans  and doesn't feel harsh when scrubbing. It's a good size and great for travelling with too! This Australian beauty company has such a cute pink aesthetic and this lip scrub is loved by many. It's even cruelty free! 

So that was my mini and very accidental beauty haul haha! Have you tried any of the products that I have bought? Comment below!
