Haul: Birthday Haul

So...my birthday was on the 5th of March which means that this post is very late. Normally I tell you how much things are and where I got them from, but because these were gifts I can't really tell you. But I thought it would be interesting nonetheless. I also thought that it would give you ideas for potential gifts.  


1. February Lust Have It box
I thought this was a really clever gift idea very outside the box (get it..."wink wink"). Hmmm...Hmmm...Anyway if you look up other February LHI boxes they will be slightly different. This one came with a few extra goodies. I'm not sure how my friend did it, but I think if you request it (possibly pay a little extra). I'm not too sure.

1. The Cosmetic Kitchen Pure Mineral Eyeshadow - Nutmeg

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…
