Boots Botanics Super Serum Triple Age Renewal

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing the day serum that I’ve been using for quite some time now. It’s called Boots Botanics Super Serum Triple Age Renewal. This serum claims to stimulate cell renewal, to visibly reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, and to improve skin firmness in 4 weeks. It contains hyaluronic acid, vitamins A, C and E, soy protein, moisturising sugars and plant antioxidants from purple orchids. Oh, and the serum is made in the UK!

So how’s the serum? I think it’s quite good! It’s quick and easy to apply, it’s absorbed almost instantly, and it feels moisturising. It also plays well with all sorts of different moisturisers. I don’t think that my skin feels firmer, and I can’t comment on whether this serum helps with deep lines and wrinkles because, fortunately, I don’t have any deep lines or wrinkles (yet). However, I do have…

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Buriti Fruit Body Smoothie

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Buriti Fruit Body Smoothie. I thought Montagne Jeunesse did face, hair and foot masks only. So I was quite surprised to find this body moisturiser at my local Poundworld.

Since it was £1 only, I picked it up staight away. Alright! So, this product claims to have a unique and fluffy texture that absorbs quickly and is 100% loveable! But is it really that good?

Yes, it is! First of all, this body smoothie smells fresh and cool – very much like lemons. And the formula is… unique! It’s definitely not a body butter, but it’s also not a mousse. I would describe the texture as fluffy and bouncy – and yes, I love it!

I can also confirm that this moisturiser absorbs quickly. It’s quite hydrating, but it’s not sticky at all – not even for a second. I think…

Suitable For Vegans – Original Source Shower Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea, Vanilla & Raspberry, Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing 3 shower gels which sound perfect for summer – Original Source Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea, Vanilla & Raspberry, and Skin Quench Cherry & Jojoba Oil. These shower gels are also suitable for vegans – they’re approved by the Vegan Society.

You can find Original Source shower gels in most supermarkets and drugstores where the 250ml bottles retail for £2 to £2.30. Or you can pick them up for £1 or less (bargain stores, special offers). Now onto the reviews!

Original Source Hibiscus & Pomegranate Tea is very nice. It smells of tea, red fruits and exotic flowers. Despite the ‘red’ fragrance this shower gel is actually refreshing. I think it’s one of the best limited editions Original Source ever did!

Original Source Vanilla & Raspberry sounds great – but it’s not. From the bottle it smells like raspberry ice cream, but as…

BanilaCo Clean it Zero Classic

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I do a Nighttime Double Cleanse Routine that starts with removing all my makeup. I have tried many products as the 1st step in my routine. I have tried Yes to Coconut Ulta Hydrating Melting Cleanser Review and e.l.f. Hydrating Gel Melting Cleanser. They were both perfectly fine. Just neither one was perfect. This cleansing balm gets good reviews in the beauty community so I wanted to give it a try.

This award-winning cleanser goes on as a solid balm and transforms into a silky oil on the skin. It’s sorbet-soft, lightweight texture effortlessly dissolves stubborn makeup without stripping your own natural oils. Papaya extract works to naturally exfoliate the skin and acerola extract is rich in vitamin C which helps to brighten.

INGREDIENTS:

Mineral Oil, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, PEG-10 Isostearate, Polyethylene, Butylene Glycol, Water, Rubus Suavissimus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf…

July Beauty Awards

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! It’s the last day of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites post. I’ve chosen my top 3 products from all the products I’ve reviewed this month, and I have a few honourable mentions as well. Let’s start with the top 3!

3rd place – Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm

This lip balm isn’t really meringue-flavoured, but I still love it. The random sweet flavour is pleasant, and I cannot enough of these cute meringue faces.

Runner-Up – Radox Revive & Radox Uplifting

Radox’s Revive and Uplifting shower gels share the silver medal. These shower gels are perfect for warm summer mornings. They’re awesome!

WINNER – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care All Over Body Cream

Superdrug’s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream is one of the best moisturisers I’ve ever had. 11 stars!

Now onto the honourable mentions! I liked quite a few masks this month!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Blueberry Blast Mud Masque

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today, and it’s about Montagne Jeunesse’s Blueberry Blast Mud Masque. This face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can buy it for 90p!

When I tried this mask, I realised that I’ve had this mask before. This mask is the reincarnation of Montagne Jeunesse’s Berrylicious Mud Masque. I’m certainly not complaining because the Berrylicious mask became an instant favourite. So I’m glad to see it was repackaged and not discontinued!

So what’s this mask like? This mask is a regular clay mask. You need to leave it on for about 15 minutes before you rinse it off with water. And once you’ve done that, you’re instantly being rewarded with clearer skin.

This mask really works – and it smells fantastic. I love this mask! My husband loves this mask! I’ve already gone back to Primark to…

Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Facial Mask

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Beauty Formulas Mud MaskHi there! Today’s post is about this £1Beauty Formulas Rejuvenating Glorious Mud Facial Mask that I found at Poundworld.

This face mask promises to remove dirt and excess oils from the skin’s surface and to absorb impurities. It also promises to unclog pores and to remove dead skin cells for a fresh skin glow.

Is this mask any good? Yes, absolutely! I think this is a reasonable face mask.

In the beginning the soapy fragrance threw me a little because I was expecting a chocolatey fragrance (yeah, my fault). However, the soapy fragrance is perfectly alright.

I’m also happy with what the mask does to my face because it makes my skin look and feel clearer.

My husband is equally pleased with this face mask. Whilst he thinks that the mask smells a little girly, he’s happy to use it once a week too. Awesome!

Have you tried this…
