The lotion retails for £10 which is for a 500ml pump actioned bottle, it is available from Soap & Glory direct and also from Boots which is where I tend to buy mine from. The range is frequently on offer, whether that be 3 for 2 or a free gift, I tend to pick up the gift sets in the Christmas sales (which normally start on Christmas Eve) and then stash them away throughout the year. This is where I believe I got this one from.
The lotion is currently available in a pump action bottle however the one I had was in a cream tube which is topped with a pink flip top lid. The tube is cream in colour with a pink theme pattern and decoration, much like the rest of the Soap & Glory range.
Upon opening the cap, the fragrance is quite floral and not as sweet as I would have liked however this does settle down shortly after applying and some fruit notes start to come through. According to Soap & Glory, this product has a similar scent to Clean Girls body wash & Mist you Madly body spritz, I like that it tell you this as should I have really liked the fragrance, I would have been able to layer it up.
Unfortunately though, this is probably one of the worst Soap & Glory products I have used in terms of moisturising, it didn’t absorb easily into my skin and took quite a bit of rubbing for it to do so (which wasn’t great considering a had a bit of sunburn), once it had rubbed in as such, my skin did feel quite tacky for about 15minutes afterwards to I didn’t dare get dressed for fear of marking my clothes. Having said that, my skin did look hydrated and felt lovely when it finally did absorb and stayed that way until the following morning.
I must admit, I definitely prefer the pump action or pots of cream rather than having it in a tube, because the cream is so thick, I find it really hard to dispense the product, especially when I was half way through applying an my hands were greasy. When I got down the end of the tube, it was impossible to get the product out so I ended up cutting the top off the end and scooping it out with my fingers.
I like the product, but it’s not my favourite and there are better moisturisers available from Soap & Glory so for that reason, this only gets 3 out of 5 stars from me.
Your excitement for the product will quickly shattered. I saw issues about fit but naturally assumed I would be immune from this gripe. Not so. The headphones are just too heavy, they pull out of the ear no matter what eartip I use. The included foam eartip was the best fit, but still not wonderful. Having had a pair of in-ears previously, I know this is not a normal thing for me. Then the kicker: I specifically bought these to work with my iPhone 4. The controls worked beautifully, but when I tried to place a call I heard a terribly loud background buzz/hum that originally just sounded like I was driving in a car on speakerphone. During the call, however, the sound was so loud on my end, I could barely focus on the call. Additionally, the caller on the other end could hear the noise. It was far too loud to tolerate having a phone conversation. Today I am returning them and buying the Klipsch image s4i just like I should have to begin with. If you're reading these reviews, please take my word for it and don't think you're "immune" to these problems as I did. These headphones LOOK like they're an excellent quality from the outside; they're heavy, the packaging is impressive, they look pretty. BUT they seem to have some pretty big issues with internal quality, and for the price it's not worth the hassle. I would certainly beware buying these, maybe try them out in the store before you actually order them.
If these Beats Studio is advertised for studio use, then it's a joke. It leaks lots of sound that will be bleed into microphones, its sound is not detailed enough for professional mixing, and it's bass is too muddy and exaggerated making these a bad reference.
However, I have to say these are very stylish looking headphone that the teenagers and trendy people like. I do admire Beats for making headphones a desired headphone, a fashion statement and accessory. They are advertised extremely well, with strong endorsements and products placement everywhere. However, being a headphone, it's primary function should be it's audio performance.
Sound quality wise, they are certainly better than the stock Apple white earbuds. However you are comparing to a £1 headphone. Not really a fair comparison. When you are comparing to professional studio headphones in this price range of the Beats Studio, it's a losing battle. The Beats Studio is by no mean an awful headphones, however professional headphones such as the Denon D2000, Audio Technica M50, Beyerdynamic DT 770, AKG K550 etc, these Beats just don't match up acoustically. A studio musician would never use a headphone with active noise cancelling built in, because this lowers the resolution and colours the sound. These are all substantially higher resolution and detailed compared to the Beats, with better instrument separation, soundstage and neutrality. A trendy alternative for the Beats Studio is the Denon D400 headphones, which has a built in amp and arguably more fashionable and attention grabbing. The D1100 headphone which can be know bought for less than £70 is another superior headphone in term of sound quality, with a better bass response, bigger soundstage richer mids and clearer highs.
The noise cancelling feature is no more than marketing gimmick, as its one of the worst ANC I've heard. If you truly active noise cancelling for quite travel, then get the Bose QC3 or QC15. If you want great sound quality, then get a studio grade headphone instead. For this amount of money spent, people deserve better sound quality. The Beats Studio packs more features than substance and performance. Great packaging, shiny plastic, vibrant colours and sleep design makes these fashionable. However, if audio quality is what you want, these will not be the best option for you.
i went through much search before settling-in for purchasing these earphones. So here i break-up my feedback under two themes.
- They allow the player to pump-up the volume
- The cable is sturdy and very chic.
- The cable never tangles as it is a flat ribbon like construction.
- The sound is brilliant. The ear pieces do not extra colour/frequency and hence the aural senses do not get any exaggerated tonal values.
- The earbuds do require a break-in period i.e. they get to sound better with use and thereon remain superb
- Very attractive piece of audio technology.
- The buds unlike the cable feels a tad delicate but that makes you wanna be a litle careful.
I purchased the Monster Beats by Dr. Dre along with a set of Monster Li Jamz and I conclude that the former really demonstrate great piece of audio engineering - My favourite now. The Lil Jamz are now kept standby and for alternate use.
Conclusion: Monster products give true value and oomph for the money spent. It is important that you too do your search before zeroing-in on any particular model. It helps appreciate technology better. And finally if you prefer, like me, you too could purchase twin-sets of the same earphones to ensure that you don't have to search for a replacement.

You simply plug them into the machine and all, in my case, I used the long-suffering Samsung i550, a pity that there was no handy device company with a sound quality thinner, at maximum volume can not listen to mush, and she and the other model in this regard, I highly disliked. Operates radio, thanks to a special cable, you can listen on medium settings. I do not know, of course, who can and want to brighten up your leisure time at work or at home in such a solution, but I think that some of the devices the company and then play better and cleaner than these speakers.I mean really quite right for a budget machine such supplement and "rolled", but the owners of expensive phones and smartphones, I would modestly not advised. Pleased and white plastic, it looks like a toy, I think that it will quickly traces in a bag, pocket or somewhere else, by the way, no money for a comfortable carry is not provided in the kit and suggests at least some kind of bag.
I am a huge fan of any items from the Body Shop. For me I tend to always find that Body Shop products are of great quality. However, they are generally a little out of my regular price bracket to make it into my regular buying pattern. As a result I tend to rely on getting Body Shop items when either on special offer, or, getting them as presents for Christmas of my Birthday.
I think that I got my tub of this Chocomania Body Shop Body Butter as part of a set of Body Butters. Looking online now at The Body Shop website (http://www.thebodyshop.co.uk) this product is discontinued. This is a Deluxe addition product and unfortunately not for sale all year round. For me this is a shame but, it is still for sale on Amazon so all is not lost.
The standard Body Butters from The Body Shop are £14 for 200ml. On amazon this Chocomania Body Butter in a 200ml is for sale at £11.49, so it might be worth shopping around a little.
Opening my tub of Chocomania Body Butter this shells hits me. It is gorgeous! It is super sweet and certainly chocolatey with an extra hint of vanilla. I love the smell of sweet thing so this is for me! For anyone that doesn’t like sweet smells then you may find this a little sickly and overpowering. This Body Butter literally smells so chocolatey that the first line on the label on the back is informing the consumer not to eat it!
I find that after applying this body butter that my skin smells really good and the scent lasts all day. I like that the smell really lingers, however, this doe mean you need to match your perfume with your body butter a little.
My tub of this Body Butter is a small 50ml tub. This tub looks small and it really doesn’t go very far. Because the body butter is so lovely and thick it is not possible to get just a little but out, any you wouldn’t really want just a little bit. I have used nearly this whole tub after just 4 or 5 applications. Yes I am generous with this when applying it but not excessively so.
My skin is super dry at times and I need a moisturiser or body butter that is going to really add moisture and boost my skin. On application this product really does improve my skin. For me this body butter is actually second to none at stopping my skin feeling dry and flaky. It is really nourishing and makes my skin happy and healthy again.
Generally this product keeps my skin feeling good and well moisturised for between 12-24 hours. Sometimes I do have to reapply this product after work after initially applying it in the morning. It really takes the roughness out of any dry patches I have and have never caused me any irritation. Because of the thickness of this cream though I would recommend leaving it a couple of minutes after applying it to dress as it doesn’t absorb instantly, although that being said, it doesn’t take long.
Overall I am certainly a fan of this product. It makes my skin soft and very well moisturised and it smells like chocolate!

A quick start guide
As someone who is obsessed with finding the best make-up products out there I have tried a range of eyeshadow palettes in the past.I can honestly say that I've never been so impressed with an eyeshadow palette in my life.
I recieved the 'Au Naturel' Sleek i-Divine palette as a gift from my aunt who is also very fond of searching for the best, newest make-up products on the market. Eyeshadow was probably one of the make-up items I used the least out of everythingbut after having a go with the beautiful browns and shimmery pearl colours of the 'Au Naturel' palette I couldn't put it down. It became an essential part of my daily make-up routine. The colours are a beautiful mixture of matte browns/blacks/whites and all variations inbetween then a couple of more shimmery colours which I adore.
I find that the easiest and most effective way to apply the eyeshadow is to use a fluffy eye blending brush and pat the product on to the eyelid rather than sweeping to ensure that all of the product sticks onto the lid beautifully. I often use the browner shades with an angled brush to fill out my eyebrows which is very handy, meaning I don't have to carry two separate compacts around with me.
All in all I'd highliy recommend this eyeshadow palette to anyone who's looking for highly pigmented and varying eye colour. Since I loved this one so much I went and bought the same palette in 'Vintage Romance' which has a gorgeous variety of golds, purples and browns.
I have always used hand cream and will always have a few on the go at any one time and I would say that I probably apply hand cream about three times a day on average, and more so if the weather is particularly cold. I had this Sanctuary hand cream as part of a birthday gift but I think you can get it for around £3 to £4. The one I have is different from the one shown and it comes in a white and oragne tube.
This comes in a 50ml tube with a flip top and the opening is wide enough to squeeze a decent amount of cream with one squeeze. The cream itself is white and is quite thick but feels smooth and not greasy at all. It has no smell as it is unperfumed and it is suitable for everyone. A great thing about this hand cream is that it has an SPF of 15 which is great as it is easy to forget to apply sun cream onto the backs of your hands.
To use I will squeeze a blob onto the back of my hand around the size of a five pence piece and find that this is plenty to rub into my hands. I will make sure that I rub it in between my fingers as this is sometimes where I get cracks in the cold weather. It absorbs quickly without too much rubbing and my hands feel soft and hydrated. I have never had any residue left on my hands or felt that I can't touch anything afterwards without leaving behind any remnants of cream. If I put my gloves on soon after using the cream I find there is no feeling of moisture or wetness in the glove as the cream is totally absorbed into my skin.
I do feel that I am giving my hands a good base of protection and I do think that it keeps my hands soft and supple especially during the winter months. The effects last a long time and I highly recommend it for anyone who has dry hands but also for everyone who likes to look after their hands, keep them in good condition and give them a bit of protection against the elements.
My mum bought this for me for Christmas years ago and I loved it.
I don't know if it's me growing up or what not but it seems to me that the smell is not as nice as it use to be.
> The Bottle <
Starting off with the bottle I cannot deny that the bottle is positively beautiful. A smooth rounded bottom with a precious butterfly lid, I haven't been able to find any perfumes shaped like this.
> The Packaging <
You can get this in a lovely gift box (which is what I got) with the lotion included which helps the parfum smell last longer on the skin. The box is silver with the Mariah Carey M label on the front. It's also big enough to be reused as a storage box. Not only do you get a perfume but you also get a small storage box, what a plus!
If you decide to go for the perfume on it's own the box is just as nice, small and compact with the Mariah Carey M symbol on the front.
> The smell <
The smell of Mariah Carey M Eau de Parfum consists of:
"Sea Breeze" accord
It is definitely a sweet, uplifting smell. Something more for the evening time wear than a morning. Would make a great present for someone who likes sweet smells.
The only downfall I have with M is that it doesn't last as long as I would like. I put it on just before 7:00am and it's now 11:56am and the smell has almost disappeared.
Being a parfum as well this is shocking as parfums are meant to be stronger than toilettes.
Maybe it's just me but the smell doesn't seem as nice as it once was, it seemed to last longer when I was younger and the smell was not as sickly as it is now. Like I said maybe that is just be growing up.
> Value <
I sometimes find it difficult to pick this up in stores, occasionally I will see it on the shelves. If you do end up find it you can pick up the 100ml bottle for normally around £20 (so I have seen). Amazon are selling for £17 (100ml).
You can get 30ml or 50ml bottles but if you like the scent wait around for the 100ml because if you think like me you will spray M more than a few times to try and make it last longer.
> Conclusion <
I adored M when I was younger but now I think I have gone off it. It is still a lovely smelling parfum and would be loved by women who enjoy a sweet smell, but not for me anymore unfortunately.
These chunky milk chocolate bars have been a favourite of mine for many years. I find them extremely satisfying for my sweet tooth and very filling as you get quite a lot of chocolate in one individual bar.
The Yorkie has been marketed in the past as a chocolate bar for men but I think that it's silly to think women don't love this creamy, rich chocolate too. Manufactured by Nestle you get 46g of milk chocolate in each single bar. The bar's wrapper is blue with bold, bright yellow lettering. On the side of the wrapper there is a nutritional value chart with full ingredients and brand information on the back of the wrapper. The chocolate is free from colours, flavours and preservatives. I can't find a 'suitable for vegetarians' logo anywhere but this product appears on Nestle's list of foods suitable for vegetarians which can be found on their website.
The chocolate contains 249 calories per bar and 14g of fat per bar which is actually quite a lot compared to other sweets. You may want to keep this information in mind and limit these to a special treat.
The chocolate is fashioned into large, deep chunks which require a bit of chewing. I find each chunk so filling that I often don't eat a whole bar and leave some for later. The quality of the chocolate is very good. It has a different taste and texture to any of it's market competitors and it's a chocolate I feel is very high quality and very tasty. It also smells very good, a slightly earthy, sugary aroma which is mouth watering.
I would recommend the Yorkie bar to adults as I think it's a bit of a mouthful for children. I will definitely be purchasing it again in the future. Prices of the bars vary. My latest purchase cost 75p for the 46g bar.
I did a lot of research before I bought my 2004 Nissan X-trail, because while I needed something to do a bit of light trailer towing, I also do a fair bit of general mileage as well.
I have found the X-trail, which I bought two years ago, comfortable, not bad for the towing, but a bit thirsty for all the general running about.
That said as an all rounder for people who need something a bit more substantial,the X-trail is certainly worth looking at. With the seats down, I can fit a few bags of animal feed in the boot, while if I need to take a group of us out for a weekend day out, the X-trail cleans up a treat, with a lovely interior and plenty of room.
The sixth gear comes in really handy and this is something I miss when I drive other vehicles now and with a 2.2 diesel engine, there is plenty of power there.
I was a little disappointed by the car's performance when faced with a sloping, slightly muddy field, but as a novice at driving 4x4 vehicles in these conditions I am prepared to put this partly down to driver inexperience too. It has seen me through some pretty grotty weather conditions.
For someone who doesn't do a lot of short journeys, the X-trail would probably work out ok, but as I am always nipping around through work and leisure, the X-trail has cost me on fuel, despite people telling me before I bought it that it wouldn't add up to a whole lot more than driving my previous medium size Renault.
For taking out the dogs and seeing to my horse, the X-trail works a treat and also provides room for passengers, particular those who need a bit more leg room,but as a true economical Jack of all trades - I don't think that car yet exists.
Let me tell you what I like about the Sony KDL40W705C:
I think the X-Reality Pro improve his performance everything from dazzling 1080p Blu-ray Disc movies all the way to very low-resolution. His system also reduce noise and he reproduce a nice colour and sharpness this is why when it comes to clarity its really good to watch anything like 3d graphic video game, movie, YouTube and more…..
Personally I got a nice soundbars system that I bought for using with it and I’m really happy, believe me having a good soundbars enhance your TVs sound quality and give that extra audio punch to all your film, games and TV programmes, by the way it’s More affordable and easy to set up than a full size speaker system and you should try it with the Sony HT-CT80 is really perfect for this 40-inch Sony KDL40W705C.
About is versatile features:
I like the BBC iPlayer and Sony Entertainment smart portal, Netflix and YouTube are all here, Amazon instant video sitting alongside pre-installed weather, news and several gaming apps available, pretty good right!!!!!!!!!!!! Lol
The Sony KDL-40W605B also own music and video streaming service as is its Football Mode, which brings up popular YouTube football videos and activates the Sport picture mode.
This baby is a Smart TV with a visual quality. Watch what you want, when you want across the slim 40-inch screen. With X-Reality PRO and Motion flow smoothing out images, this Smart television is certainly one to add in your arsenal.
My verdict going to be a 10/10!!!!
