Pixi Skintreats NEW Glow Collection*

Pixi Beauty are truly taking over the world, one step at a time and I absolutely LOVE this brand. Both the skincare and make-up products actually work and who can resist their iconic pastel green packaging?!

Recently I was sent a HUGE box full of new skincare products and this is an extension of the ever popular glow range. Who remembers when everyone started using and loving the glow tonic, well now there is a big range of products to use am/pm that you can incorporate into your skincare routine. I will be trialling all of the products in the coming weeks and I will definitely review and report back each one in detail.

This fantastic collection had been made to brighten and balance the skin, perfect if you have combination/oily skin types.

I was sent five new products: Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel £18*, PHenomenal Gel £24*, Glow Tonic (travel size) £10*, On The Glow Stick* £18 and lastly Glow Tonic Serum £26*

Most of the products have three essential ingredients: Glycolic Acid to exfoliate the skin, Ginseng to soften the skin and Aloe Vera to soothe the skin. Here'a a brief description of each of the products!

Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel:

With muscleman and a unique blend containing glycolic acid, horse chestnut extract, aloe & ginseng, it helps refine and brighten the complexion, leaving skin energized and smooth. Gently cleans & purifies with aloe Vera to soothe & hydrate and ginseng to improve circulation. Glycolic acid refines & brightens complexion.

Batiste NEW Wildflower Dry Shampoo* Review

Say hello to the latest addition to the Batiste dry shampoo family - Wildflower. Batiste is loved by many and it's so exciting to see when a new scent launches. I was more of a tropical kinda gal and I only used to reach out to that particular scent... until now. I absolutely love Wildflower, from the metallic green and floral design to the fruity and floral scent. I recently received this and it's been a bathroom favourite ever since. 

“Batiste is the # 1 dry shampoo from the UK. * And that's not for nothing! The use of Batiste ™ Dry Shampoo is the way to give your hair a fresh boost and does not even need water. With Batiste ™ it is very easy to create a fresh look, wherever and whenever you want. In addition to a wonderful scent, the dry shampoo gives volume and texture so that you no longer have to experience a bad hair day. Your hair is easier to style with extra volume. A must have in the bathroom and handbag! ”

The botanical design is so eye catching, you can see ladybugs, flowers and the green background will definitely grab your attention if you were to see this on a shop shelf. The packaging is very informative and explains in simple steps how to use the product. This 200ml can contains just the right amount of product and what's great is that you can even purchase travel size cans so you don't have to worry about leaving your favourite Batiste product behind.

The new Batiste dry shampoo has a feminine scent contains notes of lotus flower, apple blossom, hibiscus, musk, sandalwood and watermelon sorbet. A very fruity and floral mix that works together really well. These scents are new and innovative to the product and when applied on the hair, the scent stays all day long!

Spraying this onto the roots leaves no white residue, just be sure to spray around 30cm away from the hair (just like it's stated in the instructions) after spraying this into the hair, my roots instantly feel clean and has alot more volume for better styling. I love how this quickly absorbs the oil and adds a fragrance to my hair. Get that clean and fresh feeling in between washes and use this when you're running on less time. A hair hero.

Give your hair a new lease of life, whenever and wherever. I love using Batiste. Give it a go too and you'll be sure to find a scent that suits you!
