Body Fantasies // Perfume Body Sprays

  Body Fantasies Perfume Body Sprays Review, Pink Vanilla, Twilight Mist, Pink Grapefruit Fantasy, Japanese Cherry Blossom
Today I want to share with you the launch of America's No.1 Perfume Body Spray*, Body Fantasies, which arrives in-store and online at Superdrug this month.
The Body Fantasies perfume body sprays use a higher concentration of long-lasting fragrance oils and each 94ml non-aerosol pump dispenses over 500 sprays.
Unlike other body sprays of this type, the Body Fantasies feature a super fine mist that does not soak the skin or clothing. This means you can apply anywhere and at any time, on bare skin or on top of clothing - ideal!
  Body Fantasies Perfume Body Sprays Review, Pink Vanilla, Twilight Mist, Pink Grapefruit Fantasy, Japanese Cherry Blossom
There's currently four sprays in the collection but I'm pretty sure they'll be adding more in the near future.

Pink Vanilla* // Available exclusively at Superdrug, Pink Grapefruit Fantasy is a fruity blend of refreshing, pink grapefruit and jewelled pomegranate that moves through to heart notes of soft florals, before revealing a warm base of white musk and vanilla.

Twilight Mist* // Mesmerizing notes of pure mandarin, magnolia, and sandalwood blend together to create the hypnotic, dreamy fragrance of Twilight Mist.

Pink Grapefruit Fantasy* // Pucker up for Pink Vanilla Kiss Fantasy! Delectable juicy peach and berries open the fragrance, while soft florals round out the middle. The base, comprised of woods and musk, is beautifully crafted to create a feminine fruity, fragrance.

Japanese Cherry Blossom* // Swirling petals from the Japanese Cherry Blossom tree inspire a fragrance full of romance, desire, and charm. A long-lasting blend of warm oriental notes transform into an incredibly feminine aroma of fresh cherry blossom, succulent rose, and seductive amber.

For body sprays these are amazing and affordable too.  These remind me of the Victoria's Secret sprays but of course for a fraction of the price!
I feel like we don't really have anything like this in the UK drugstores, apart from actual aerosols, so I'm happy to see these in Superdrug stores!

Body Fantasies Perfume Body Sprays, priced £3.99, will be available in Superdrug online and in-store now!

Which fragrance takes your fancy?

Simplee Aloe // Refreshing Aloe Vera Fruit Juice Drink

Simplee Aloe Refreshing Aloe Vera Fruit Juice Drink
Today I will be reviewing something a little bit different on the blog. I will be talking about the Simplee Aloe Vera Fruit Juice drinks.
Simplee Aloe very kindly sent me some of their cartons of juice to try out. I received two of each flavour but as you can see from the photo, there's only three. Because the ever so impatient me couldn't wait to try one!

A little bit about Aloe Vera - Since Ancient Egyptian times, Aloe Vera has been used for its powerful health benefits, in particular skincare. Simplee Aloe has now packed all of this goodness into a great tasting and refreshing juice drink made from all natural ingredients with absolutely no artificial flavourings or preservatives and is never from concentrate – just simply delicious. Even Egypt’s own Cleopatra swore by Aloe Vera to keep her looking and feeling youthful, so if it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for us!

Each carton of Simplee Aloe contains 35% of pure aloe vera and just one bottle contains vitamins A, B1,B2,B6, B12, C and E, as well as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron and potassium. I would say Aloe Vera is quite an acquired taste on it's own, so Simplee Aloe have add a blend of fruit juices. They are either mixed with apple and mango or grape and lemon! Their drinks are also 100% natural with absolutely no preservatives or additives, which is even better!
I enjoyed both of these drink and think they would taste amazing in the Summer time as they are so refreshing and would be enjoyable with ice!

They are available to purchase in two sizes; 1 litre for the whole family and 330ml which is the perfect size for on the go. You can buy them from Asda, Ocado, Sainsburys, Waitrose and Whole Foods. To see all stockists click here.

Have you tried Aloe Vera fruit juice before?

Lush Haul // February 2016

Lush Haul, Think Pink, Ladybird, Twilight, Unicorn Horn, Milky Bath
I haven't stepped foot in Lush for a while and after seeing posts on their latest Valentines and Mother's day collections, I thought it was about time I went and picked some products up!

Think Pink - £2.65 // I always pick one of these up as they are my favourite bath bombs. They smell amazing and have little pink confetti hearts that float out of it.

Ladybird - £3.95 // This one is part of their new Mother's Day range. It's a cute little ladybird bubble bar. I can't wait to use it and see what colours the bath water turns!

Twilight - £3.50 // I haven't tried this one before but it smells amazing. It's also quite a big bath bomb, so I reckon you could get two uses out of it.

Unicorn Horn - £4.25 // This is part of the Valentines range but hopefully they'll keep it as part of their permanent range. It's such a fun and brightly coloured bubble bar!

Milky Bath - £3.75 // Apparently this fills your bath with bubbles and makes the water lovely and soft. This would be ideal to use when your skin needs some extra moisture.

What are your favourite Lush products?

Review // Chloe Love Story Perfume

Chloe Love Story Perfume And Body Lotion Review
Ever since I sprayed this perfume last year, I fell in love with it. I saw it in a gift set around Christmas time for about £63 which included a 50ml EDP and a 100ml body lotion, I really didn't want to pay that much for it so I waited for the January sales.The sales came round but it was still a bit more than I wanted to spend at £45.33, so I ended walking away from it.
When I was out shopping yesterday, I thought I would take a look in Debenhams, to see if they had reduced it any more and to my delight they had! It was now priced up at £34 and I thought to myself I am just going to have to buy it! When I took it to the till and handed my Debenhams beauty card over, the cashier told me I had £5 worth of vouchers to spend. So of course i did just that. I ended up paying just a mere £29 for this gift set and I couldn't be happier.
Chloe Love Story Perfume And Body Lotion Review
Love Story is the marriage of luminous and sensual orange blossom with stephanotis jasmine, the flower of happiness. A sexy, clean floral fragrance. Love Story is a memorable fragrance with true personality.

Fragrance Notes:
- Top notes: Orange blossom
- Heart notes: Stephanotis Jasmine
- Base notes: Cedar wood

Chloe Love Story Perfume And Body Lotion Review
First off, how gorgeous are both of these bottles. They will look ever so lovely sitting on my dressing table. The bottles were inspired by the love padlocks on the bridge of Pont des Arts.
I normally go for sweet and fruity fragrances, so I was pleasantly surprised when I liked this one as it'd definitely more of a floral scent. It lasts a long time on the skin and I would say it's strong enough to wear as a night time scent but at the same time, can be worn in the daytime. I think it would be lovely for the Spring months.
As for the body lotion, it smells exactly the same (of course) and I like to use it to help layer the scent, It's actually really nice and moisturising too.

Have you bought any bargains lately or own this perfume?

Drugstore Makeup Haul // Batiste, Maybelline, Seventeen, Collection & Rimmel

Drugstore Makeup Haul
I haven't been makeup shopping in what feels like forever! So I decided to pop along to my local boots today and pick up a few new bits. They had many offers across the makeup counters and I could of gone spending crazy but I did limit myself to just a few products.
I needed some more Batiste Dry Shampoo (£2.99) as this is my life! It was on buy 1 get 1 half price. I picked up my favourite scent, Tropical along with Oriental too. I'm also loving the new bottle designs.

Next I picked up a few products from Rimmel. I got the Stay Matte Primer (£3.99) as I was in need of a new one and this was pretty cheap. If you have any recommendations for a decent primer please leave them below. I also picked up the Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£5.99) as I have heard many good things about it, and again I was in need of a new powder.

Rose Quartz (£3.89) eyeshadow by Seventeen popped up in the blogging world a good couple of months ago and bloggers were going crazy over it, so crazy it was always out of stock when I wanted to buy it. I finally got my hands on the eyeshadow and it's a beautiful rose gold shade that will look amazing as an all over shade or as a transition colour.

The ever so famous Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) made it's way into my basket too. I have been using this concealer for ages now and it's one of my go to concealers. It's such a great concealer to have in your makeup collection. In case anyone's wondering, I picked up the shade warm medium.

Lastly I picked up Maybelline's new mascara, The Falsies Push Up Drama (£5.99). I really like mascaras with a plastic wand, which this one has. I have seen mixed reviews about this product but I can't wait to try it out for myself.

If you would like a review on any of the products above, please let me know by tweeting me or leaving me a comment below!

Superdrug's B. Makeup Brush Cleanser

Brush cleaning is one of those jobs all beauty bloggers hate doing but it just has to be done.
When it comes to cleaning my brushes, I'd like to give them a good deep clean every week or so, but sometimes that just doesn't happen!
I was on the hunt for a product I could use to give my brushes a quick spot clean on a daily basis.
I have used the MAC Brush Cleanser before but was on the hunt for something from the drugstore.

When in my local Superdrug I spotted the B. Makeup Brush Cleanser.
B. are a brand I have heard of before but have never actually tried, so when I saw they had a brush cleaner I knew I had to pick it up.
A conditioning brush cleanser that disinfects and cleans cosmetic brushes. Gentle formula - Suitable for use on both synthetic and natural bristles, and gentle enough for everyday use. Antibacterial - Scientifically proven to remove bacteria. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Made in the U.K.
It has an easy to use spray pump, so you can determine how much you use at once.

If you're not familiar with spot brush cleansing, it's essentially a quick way to remove the bulk of make up from brushes and a daily way to refresh and prevent germs from breeding. It's a great way to keep your brushes clean before you have the time (or effort) to give them a deep clean. May I add that spot cleansing should never replace actually washing your brushes regularly.
To spot clean, simply mist the brush cleanser on the bristles, swirl the brush on the muslin cloth (continue to do so until the bristles are clean) and leave to dry naturally.

B.Makeup Brush Cleanser - £4.99 (100ml) or £6 (250ml) with muslin cloth.

How regularly do you clean your makeup brushes?

January Favourites

January Monthly Favourites, Givenchy Live Irresistible Perfume, B. Makeup Brush Cleanser, Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion Body Lotion, Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer
Givenchy Live Irresistible Perfume // I bought this at duty free when I went to Florida last year and it was my go to holiday scent. Everytime I wear it, it just reminds me of holiday. It's a lovely sweet scent that can go from day-to-night. As you can see from the amount left in the bottle, it's well loved!

B. Makeup Brush Cleanser // I have been on the hunt for a drugstore brush cleanser and came across this one in Superdrug. It's such an easy product to use when you want to give your brushes a quick clean, if you don't have enough time to deep cleanse them. I have a full review of this here!

Victoria's Secret Coconut Passion Body Lotion // Another holiday purchase from last year. Although  I would describe this as a summery scent, I can't get enough of it. The VS body lotions are amazingly hydrating and just leave your skin feeling silky smooth. I need more!!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation // I tend to wear higher coverage foundations in the winter and this has been my go to. The colour shade is perfect for my skin tone in the winter and the coverage is just amazing.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer // If you had read my recent review of this here, you would know that this definitely would be in my January favourites! It's such an amazing concealer for the under eye area and is a staple in my makeup bag.

What were your favourites for January?

Urban Decay // Naked Skin Concealer

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer In Light Warm Review
This is one of those products which I have seen hyped about for so long, so I decided that it's about time I finally picked it up. The product I'm talking about is the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. I have been using it for around a couple of months now, and it's definitely my go to concealer for under my eyes. I picked up the shade light (warm) and found it's the ideal shade for my under eyes circles and conceals them well.
Although I will say, definitely go and get colour matched if you can as the shade range isn't that great.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer In Light Warm Review
As you can see from the pictures, the wand is very different to any concealer I have tried before. It's a doe foot applicator but it has two flat sides. One side for one eye and the other, well for the other eye! It has the right amount of product on either side which is great as it means you don't have to double dip.
The formula is light but the consistency is ever so creamy. I thought that the coverage wouldn't be great but I was pleasantly surprised. I would describe it as a medium-to-full coverage and as it's light, it isn't cakey at all. Once blended you wouldn't be able to tell it's there.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer In Light Warm Review
As for creasing, it does crease ever so slightly but I always use a powder to set my under eye concealer anyway, so it didn't bother me. It made my under eyes a lot brighter and my skin look lovely. I have also tried it on any redness I may have, for example around my nose, also on any blemishes too. Its great for that also!
After trying this concealer it's made me want to try the foundation. Have any of you tried it?

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - £17.50

Lylia Rose | Dreams Are A Wish Your Heart Makes Bracelet

Lylia Rose is an independent online store run by the ever so lovely, Victoria. Her shop has an array of beautiful jewellery, fashion pieces and gift and home accessories.
She kindly got in contact and asked if I would like to choose something from her website and review it on EmilyGrace. I spent a good 10 minutes scrolling through all the lovely items she has for sale but as soon as I saw this bracelet, I knew I'd have to choose it!
The 'Dreams Are A Wish Your Heart Makes' bracelet* is a beautiful rose gold bracelet with black engraved detailed. It has a lovely little four leaf clover charm too. The bracelet is light weight and is perfect for stacking.
The reason I chose this was because the saying is very much Disney and as you all know I am a hugeee lover of anything Disney related.
I wish I got a picture of how it arrived as it was beautifully packed in tissue paper and came in a little mesh bag.  This would make the perfect gift for someone or even if you fancied treating yourself.
Check out Lylia Rose here.

Enter EMGRACE at the checkout and receive 20% of your order!
