ELEMIS EXFOLIATING FACE WASH

This exfoliating face wash comes in bright magenta tube packaging, which is nice, nothing special, but it doesn't need to be!

It's an exfoliator and a face wash in one. The face wash contains "cherry powder and jojoba beads to gently polish and help refine skin texture. Enriched with mandarin and aniseed to soften and condition." - Elemis.

The Freshskin range is free from parabens, mineral oils, artificial colours and silicones (and other nasties) which makes me even more attracted to their products.

The scrub is actually very gentle compared to other face scrubs which can kind of hurt and scratch a little. My face feels amazing after using this product, really fresh, even toned and bright. The scent is lovely, really fruity and makes me feel AWAKE!

I just love this product so much, I really do. I use it almost every day and the product goes a long way, no need for me to squeeze out loads!
You should try this product, I highly recommend it. It's a great product for someone with dull or tired skin.

For a luxury brand I think this product is quite affordable. It costs £12.00 for 100ml. And is currently on sale at FeelUnique for £9.00 HERE! which is amazing!

(Elemis are not paying me or haven't even provided me with this product. All my own opinions :)

MARK HILL BLONDE BOMBSHELL SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

So after Christmas I went to Boots to see if there was anything left in the sale. One product I ended up buying the Mark Hill Glam Blonde gift set as it was down to £5 from £10. 
I have blonde highlights throughout my hair so i thought i would give the shampoo and conditioner which were included in the set a go. 

I am going to review the 'Blonde Bombshell Shine Enhancing Shampoo' and 'Blonde Bombshell Highlight Reflecting Conditioner'.


It can be difficult to review products which work together like these two products, as you don't know exactly which one has done the best work (who made my hair look more blonde?)
I feel these products REALLY brought out the blonde highlights in my hair. My Mum told me my hair looked a lot lighter after using these products and I thought the same. 

The shampoo is just right, i washed my hair on 31st December and it is now 2nd January (wash hair day, don't worry) and my hair is not greasy yet! Usually my hair will start to get a bit greasy at this point. 

The conditioner made my hair lovely and soft. It still smells nice and looks in good condition.

I would highly recommend these products although i cannot find them anywhere else online other than here in the gift set http://www.boots.com/en/Mark-Hill-Glam-Blonde-Mini-Gift-Set_1383755/

I'll add any links back here if i find them!

The set also included Anti-Humidity Shine Spray and hairspray.
