I'm not going to let a little thing like the Atlantic Ocean stop me from getting beauty items which are exclusively sold in our ally nation of USA! Thank you Jesus for ebay!

Ever since Essie Button had first spoke of these amazing Maybelline Baby Lips balms over a year ago, I have had my eye on them and waited patiently until us Brits would have a chance of purchasing them also. So far, I haven't come across any of them in our stores, so it was online I went. This is a true story; I purchased this single item one evening on ebay at around 5pm and didn't expect to see it for probably a week or so, however, it arrived at my house the NEXT DAY at about 3pm!?!? Someone please tell me how that even happened?

Anyways, apart from the utterly perfect service I got from my seller on ebay, I didn't pay too much for this either - I think with P+P I payed a total of around £6 (which is a bargain to me as I thought I wasn't ever going to get it!).

As for the product itself, well, this smells like cherries. Obviously! It's actually a nice sweet scent and isn't too overly sugary or sickly scented and to be honest...this is a great lip balm. It does give a great payoff for colour as well as being super moisturising. I don't have any other lip balms quite like this and everything about it is so quirky and cute! Even the cheap plastic packaging is adorable in my opinion! When you apply this it does sort of remind me of how your lips looked after you were to eat a red ice-lolly as a kid - sort of like a water wash of colour. (This product does taste nice also). I love this little thing and plan on ordering more from ebay asap.

RATING - 9/10

(This would've gotten a full 10 if it weren't for the fact it isn't available in UK)

I have been slightly M.I.A recently due to suffering an awful flu. I am finally recovered - although I look like a zombie and have lost like 10lbs - and have also happily gotten my sense of smell back! Ahhhh, Yankee! Oh how I have missed you!

I will be back to blogging asap!


P.s - Mandy! You will have mail very soon ;)

Ever since I first came across this haircare brand late last year, I have been constantly raving on about how good their Argan Oil treatment is. Recently, I was kindly sent* some new products to try at home and over the last few weeks, I have been working my way through each of them. There is a mixture of oil-like treatments and deep conditioning lotions, so I have paired them together and used them exactly how it was recommended by the manufacturer. For the last three weeks I have been using these 'duo' hair treatment sets, each for a week at a time (I also wash my hair once every 2/3 days).

This is my 100% honest review of each set. (I think it is important to my readers to be completely truthful about how I feel on each product and am never paid or sponsored to give positive reviews.*)

(The oil from this duo was the first product from this particular brand that I tried a few months back. You can read my original blog post about it here )

- The description on this sachet reads; "Hask Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment with Keratin, is a super strengthening, hydrating treatment that will restore and smooth dry, damaged, chemically treated or over processed hair. Argan Oil, unique to Morroco, is known for its high absorbing, penetrating and split end repairing qualities, while leaving even the most damaged hair soft and nourished for added moisture." Quite the claims, eh?
