Avon Skin So Soft!

Hey girlies,

Hope you're all having a tremendous Tuesday!

So the sun has got his hat on which means one of many things.......Bare legs!! Aaarrgh!

It's great to be able to get the summer dresses out once more but if you're like me and a little conscious about going out with bare legs then I may have just the solution for you!

I came across this beauty a while back (I had mentioned it in my Avon Haul post a little while back) and I have been using it over the last few days with shorts and dresses and I have to say I am very impressed!

It's basically a liquid foundation for legs but it's not thick and feels just like a moisturiser. Providing coverage for flawless looking legs and giving a more 'youthful and toned appearance' it ticks all my boxes so far!

Depending on your skin tone you can get Avon So Soft Flawless Legs in Fair/Medium and Medium/Dark.

Avon So Soft goes on like a moisturiser which you rub all over your legs until it's all blended in and voila! Your legs look flawless!

At a price of £5.00 it's definately a product I will stocking up on this summer so bring on the sun!

Anyone else tried this out? Leave me a comment and let me know!

60 Second Fix For Hands by Crabtree & Evelyn!

Hey ladies,

Hope you're all having a marvellous Monday!

I am very excited to tell you about a product that I was given as a gift and I absolutely love it!
You want to be 'seconds away from incredibly soft hands'? Yes please!!
I do sometimes suffer from dry hands a lot, either by bad weather, or my desperate desire for clean hands. I do use a lot of various hand creams and whilst they do the job temporarily I sometimes feel I'm back to square one later on in the day. So when I tried this product out my hands were in for a real treat!

In the 60 Second Fix Kit you get two tubes. One labelled Hand Recovery which you use first and then follow up with Hand Therapy to 'maintain the soft, smooth hands.' It even comes with a little instruction booklet of how to use!

The idea of 60 Second Fix is to transform hands to a super soft state in the time it takes to wash them! Simples!

The Hand Recovery is like an exfoliator, which you rub all over your hands as though you were washing them, for about 15-20 seconds, wash off, pat dry and ta-da! Beautifully soft hands!

You can then use the Hand Therapy which is a cream to continue to keep your hands smooth and soft and both these products smell divine!

I found this was by far the best product I have ever used and will continue to use this in the future!
Anyone else been amazed by 60 Second Fix? I love your comments so let me know below!

Nail Of The Day!

Hey lovelies,

Hope you're all having a fabulous Friday!

After the sun decided to pop on his hat and come out (albeit briefly!) it had put me in a really sunshiney mood! So to celebrate I thought I would paint my nails in Avon's Sunshine Yellow!

I was quite undecided about this colour as to whether I would suit it etc but after wearing it a couple of times I am really growing to love it and think it will look gorgeous with a summery white dress!

What do we girlies think? Love it or hate it? I love hearing from you so leave me a comment!

Love and Tickles

The Raspberry Kiss!

Hey my lovelies,I found this little gem whilst out shopping at Tesco's yesterday and I absolutely love it! It's Treacle Moon's Raspberry Kiss Body Scrub!

I had never heard of these products before and I must admit it was only due to the fact that the pretty packaging caught my eye. The little quotes on the bottles are so cute!

It's exfoliating beads make my skin super soft and the Raspberry scent leaves my skin smelling yummy!

They have various different ranges, these being The Raspberry Kiss, My Coconut Island, Those Lemonade Days, That Vanilla Moment and One Ginger Morning. I think I'll be stocking up on these!!

The Raspberry Kiss Body Scrub was £3 for 225ml which I think is fab!

Review of the 4 Pad Lean Machine!

Hey lovelies,
Finally this is my review for the 4 Pad Lean Machine that Natalie from The Beauty Works was kind enough to send me! I've been doing this 'workout' for around 2 weeks daily but what did I think?.....

Well I have to say I have noticed a difference! I may not be walking around with a visible 6 pack but I certainly can say that my stomach feels tighter and my muscles firmer and I'm sure will continue to do so the longer I use this product.

What I really loved about the 4 Pad Lean Machine was that it doesn't in any way hurt or feel uncomfortable whilst working its magic! I can happily sit in front of the t.v or blog away as the product isn't bulky or require a lot of space.

The set up is also super easy, it comes with an instruction booklet that clearly explains everything you need to make the 4 Pad Lean Machine work effectively as well as tips on how best to use it.

You can choose how high or how low you want the workout to be and I was up to setting 6 the more I got used to it.

So to round up, I absolutely love this product! It's compact, it does what it says and is perfect for my continuing quest to get a bikini body! I definately would recommend the 4 Pad Lean Machine and at a price of £34.99 I really do think this product is a bargain compared with a lot of other toning products out there.

Hope you enjoyed this review and if you can check out my introductory post on the 4 Pad Lean Machine below!

Thanks for reading!
