Lets Talk about Moisture |Tesco Body Gel Aloe Review|#5

Recently I posted a mini haul (you can read it here) and in this haul I purchased two bottles of Tesco Aloe Vera body gel as I was suffering with terrible sunburn.

I was so impressed with this product that I decided that I really wanted to review it and share it with you.

I’m not usually one to stick to regularly moisturising my body, I really feel like I should do it more often but it really does feel like a chore to me! Plus I usually have to wait ages for the moisturiser to dry before I can touch any furniture or put my clothes on! I never really seemed worth it.

I guess after burning the hell out of my skin and seeing how great this product is, I don’t mind moisturising now!

I’ll start with the price. I purchased this for £3 as all the Aloe Vera after suns were quite expensive and this one looked like it would help with my burns just as good as the rest. I also felt like I was getting more for my money as the bottle is quite big.

After taking it home I had a freezing cold shower and applied it to my sunburn. It left a nice cooling effect, didn’t feel like it was irritating my skin and dried so quickly, like almost instant!! I started using it regularly and my skin had never been better! It helped take away the dry peeling skin and helped make my skin feel incredibly hydrated.

I was using it 4-5 times a day for a solid 3 to 4 days and haven’t even used a quarter of the bottle yet!

I definitely will continue to use this product as I’m still yet to find a fault with it and if I’m honest I don’t think I will. It’s cheap, you get a lot for your money, it smells great and dries really quickly! I’d definitely recommend it!

My, Those are some colourful balls!

No, not the balls you were probably thinking of (you dirty minded person! ;P) I mean the Avon CC Pearls!

I was a little bit doubtful when I purchased this product but seeing as I had tried a colour correcting concealer palette, I was really curious about trying it in pearl/powder form (also the fact that it was on sale for £6 probably played a part in it).

DSC_0399I can’t describe how amazing this product is! I honestly cant think of a negative thing about it. I’ll start off with the product itself.

It has 5 different coloured pearls, these are green, orange, purple and yellow. They’re all colour correcting (green for redness, orange for darkness). If I’m completely honest, I don’t actually know what all the colours are for. I know the green is for neutralizing redness, orange is for dark spots and  I think the gold is to highlight (3 out of 5 isn’t so bad!) They’re quite a nice texture too, though I will say i have often found myself crushing them between my fingers because it feels so satisfying! (please tell me I’m not the only person who does this!!!!)

On to the packaging. It’s pretty straightforward. It’s all black, which I like as it gives it a simplistic, sophisticated look, and all the writing is in white. It has a screw top lid and comes with a sponge inside to stop the balls from shaking about and becoming crushed. How thoughtful Avon!!!

Avon Haul

Hey guys! Here I have for you another mini haul. I brought a few bits from Avon recently as I love the, and their products. They do some good makeup for a decent price.

First up I decided to give their cream to powder foundation a go even though I don’t usually buy foundations I can’t try out before buying them. The one thing that really persuaded me was my sister had this foundation quite a while back and it look flawless on her face!

Next I got the Avon CC Pearls. I’ve used colour correcting concealer a before which work wonders on my face so I figured I’d give these a go and see what the outcome is.

Like foundations, if I’m unable to try a lipstick before I buy it, it’s very unlikely that I will actually buy it. I saw this lipstick was on offer so I decided to give it a go! I got it in their nude shade ‘Au Naturale’.

The last few bits I purchased were an eyeliner that came as a free gift, an angled double ended eyeliner brush and a duo sharpener.

Keep an eye out for reviews on these products :).
