Haul: After Christmas Sales

Sorry about the back to back haul but there are a few good deals going on that I wanted to mention. I NEVER usually spend this much money within a month but I received a fair bit of Christmas money and I wanted to spoil myself.

This Mary-Lou Manizer kit was a great deal that I couldn't pass off. It originally retails for $49.95, valued at $81.95 which is an amazing deal already but I bought it on special for $34.95 which is the cost of Mary-Lou Manizer alone.

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Image: Essence Quick Dry Top Coat

Claims: "Extremely fast drying top coat. Protects your nail polish against chipping"

How long would you expect a "quick dry" top coat to dry, 60 seconds maybe 2 minutes? Well don't expect too much from this top coat. Every time I've used this top coat I've had problems with my nail polish smudging or sheet lines when I wake up. 

The top coat does dry fairly quickly however the nail polish remains soft and smudges if your not careful. I tried it a few times but the last time I tried it I left it for an hour and a half to fully set and without doing anything that would ruin the polish before going to sleep but when I woke up my nail polish had sheet marks. All I can say is disappointing. 

Yes it is a cheap product but from essence I expected a lot better. I've used a few essence products but this was the WORST. 

In terms of protection from chipping I don't believe it makes much of a different. My test for this was rimm…
