I have always refrained from calling myself a ‘Mum blogger’. What is the point really? I don’t want to just talk about being a Mum. Of course, I love my Little Man to bits, but there is more to me than that. I love writing about things that involve my little person but I love writing about me too. I am still here after all. Inside this mum bod and I think I still do answer to a name that isn’t ‘Mummy’. For a couple of hours a day at least. That’s why I was chuffed to bits when Just My Look got in touch and asked me if I would like some of their products to try out and share with you here on my blog.
Woohoo. Me-time! Getting to put some time aside to have a good look and try these products was great. They are things that I am genuinely interested in and would likely have bought, so this is always an added bonus. I’ll stop waffling on and get straight on with it. Hopefully, you might find something you like here too.
Decleor Aroma Cleanse 3 in 1 Hydra-Radiance Smoothing & Cleansing Mousse
What Just My Look say:
Decleor Aroma Cleanse 3-in-1 Hydra-Radiance Smoothing & Cleansing Mousse (100ml) is a cream cleanser with a unique triple action formula resulting in a perfect complexion.
Containing Neroli Essential Oil and Hyaluronic Acid, the cream combines with water to form a gentle action mousse. The skin is cleansed deeply, polished – dead skin cells being exfoliated – and hydrated, with fine lines and wrinkles plumped.
I’m going to be honest. I am pretty awful when it comes to skincare. A quick wipe before bed and that’s normally me done. I know I will regret this in a few years but you know what it’s like. I love to slap the makeup on in the morning but it’s such a bind taking it off at night! So, when this popped through my letterbox, I knew I was in for a treat, or at the very least, my skin was!
It really is a lovely product. It smells divine and my skin feels amazing after using it. It really is encouraging me to up my skincare game and make more of an effort. One of the reviews on the site says that after quite some time of using it, she is noticing fewer wrinkles! Whilst I don’t have many at the moment, I am aware that the old crows feet are making an appearance, so with a bit of luck, this will help reduce them in time! The only thing that would put me off buying this regularly is the price. Being Decleor, it’s higher end, obviously. But if it really did the job, then I would consider making it a staple.
OPI California Dreaming Collection
What Just My Look say:
Treat yourself to a gorgeous manicure using the OPI California Dreaming Collection 4 x 3.75ml Mini Pack. Inspired by California’s majestic sunsets & diverse landscapes, this collection encompasses a palette of vibrant and lively shades that will lift your spirits and brighten your day! Not only exquisite in colour, OPI continue to deliver rich pigmentations promising to cover nails in just a couple of coats. Chip resistant and long lasting, OPI deliver time and time again with their great selection of nail polishes. OPI Nail Lacquer & Polish contains no DBP, toluene, or formaldehyde and features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
If you’re a regular here on my blog, you will know by now that my nails are my pride and joy. I spend longer than I should do on them and I’d rather spend money on them in the nail bar than I would be shopping in the latest sale. I think your fingernails say a lot about you so when I knew I was getting some gorgeous Autumnal colours coming my way I was over the moon!
I haven’t had chance to use these on myself yet, but I have painted my Mum’s nails with them. My Mum has beautiful natural nails and as we were going to a family wedding, she asked me to do them for her. I willingly obliged and we used one from this gorgeous collection. The colour we went for was Santa Monica Beach Peach. It looks redder in the box, but it is definitely a pinky colour when it’s on, even though my pictures don’t really show this.
Mum is pretty hard wearing on her hands and always has them in water. The polish lasted well, as you would expect from OPI. Over a week later and she has only had to patch up a couple of chips so that’s not bad going in my opinion. I’m looking forward to trying more of the other colours as we move further into Autumn.
Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette
What Just My Look say:
Enjoy cleaner brushes with the Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette. Manufactured using performance-grade silicone, this light-weight & ergonomically designed palette fits comfortably in your hand allowing you to clean your brushes with ease. Has three multi-surfaced textures which are each designed to work between the bristles to banish makeup, oil & impurities from your bristles to give you uber clean makeup brushes!
Cleaning my makeup brushes is up there with putting clothes away as one of my least favourite jobs to do. It’s SO boring. And it always makes a mess of the bathroom sink. Let’s just say I was pretty excited to get my mitts on one of these beauties. Seriously, it cut the time in half using this! And I didn’t then have to scrub the bathroom sink relentlessly to get rid of the tinge of orange from the washed away foundation! I love Real Techniques brushes as well so to have this to use alongside them is a real treat. I would highly recommend it.
Have you ever tried any of these before? What kind of things do you like to get back to doing when you’re more than just a Mum? Let me know in the comments.
