I love Boots,they sell pretty much everything a girl could want in her handbag! when i found that they sell their own range of make up I was so excited. It sells everything a normal make up brand would sell but for half the price! They sell mascara, nail varnish, foundation, concealer, powders, eye shadows, eye liners you name it. The natural collection eye liners are cheap and they have all the colours you could possibly want. However I found that when apply the eye liner I would have to apply some pressure to get it to show up. I'm not expecting much from the products because it's so cheap. Unfortunately it wasn't waterproof , however it was quite difficult for me to remove! It look lovely when it's on and lasts around 2-3 hours, so not incredibly long, but long enough for a party or a coffee outing! They are £1.50 in boots and the pencil itself lasts a few months. I recommend these if you are on a budget and in need of some good quality makeup! x
Nail varnishes are one of my favorite make up items. I just find that it completes the look! I always look for a cheap nail varnish that will do for the moment - not for the week if you no what i mean. Boots Natural Collection Nail Varnishes are one of my favorites. COLORS There are a wide range of colors that look great for every look theres: Crystal Clear - this is a clear varnish that can be used as a base/top coat Topaz - this is a light brown color that looks great if you are creating a natural look Pink Manicure - looks great if you just want to have a casual look Black Night - matte black color great for any look Purple - again a lovely matte color There are many different colors to choose from - these are just a few of my favorites. The colors are matte and give a great finish. However they tend to chip so by using the clear varnish as a base or top coat , it would prevent this from happening. PRICE The price ranges from £1.79 to £1.99. For some odd reason you pay £1.79 for pinks and white and generally light colors and you pay more for the darker colors such as black and purple. PACKAGING It is very simple and plain and perhaps not the most eye catching of them all but I get drawn in by the price, not the packaging. QUALITY I found that it can chip but as I said before using the clear nail varnish can prevent this. It doesn't have a horrible smell like some nail varnishes do and the look is matte and bold. It dries quickly and leaves a great finish. OVERALL OPINION Cheap and cheerful - great colors, would recommend to anyone that is on a budget!
I used to love going onto Toluna and taking their surveys and polls. The rewards were awesome, and the prizes you could get were relatively good. The layout was quite confusing at first but after a while i got the hang of it. It's great for socializing and seeing what other people think. Over the past few months the website has been getting more and more slow. This is probably due to more and more people signing up to it. But I get about 9 emails a day, offering to do surveys which is great but whenever I do them i get about half an hour into them and they tell me i don't qualify and that i won't be getting any points. This is both frustrating and time wasting. I also did about 12 surveys over a couple of days and managed to get about 30,000 points which they said would be in my account the next day. It never happened. I emailed them and they said that give it a week as they were experiencing some problems. So i sat, i waited....no points came. After about 3 weeks of waiting i emailed again, only for them to tell me that they had no record of me taking those surveys, even though it clearly stated on my profile that i had taken them. They didn't believe me. So it's 6 weeks on, i'm still owed te 30,000 points. I also recently noticed that the amount of points you needed to get the rewards had almost doubled, so it's now super hard to get the points. I gave up with them and i now use ValuedOpinions survey site where i actually get paid decent points and money. I have earned myself about 30 pounds from doing about 20 surveys, each of about 20 mins long. Now that is decent. Overall i think this website is good for people that have a lot of patience and don't mind sitting around for hours on end doing surveys for points. I on the other hand would rather earn money or gifts for doing surveys, because at the end of the day no one should work hard to take surveys and not be rewarded, thats just unfair if your doing it for nothing, i mean if you are fine with not getting anything out of it then fair enough. But in most companies they pay a lot of money for peoples opinions so i'm not going to sit back and be fobbed off with some ridiculously small reward. Thanks
I am a huge shopping fan so when I go out shopping for clothes I look for three things, quality, design and price. Quality matters to me, so if i pay a lot i expect the quality to be high, if I don't pay a lot i expect the quality to be quite plain and simple. The design matters to me too because i like unique and fashionable items of clothing. And the price plays a huge part in buying clothing as i don't have a lot of money! Topshop offers a range of clothing that ticks all the boxes for fashionable clothing and great quality. However the prices are quite high compared to some other high street clothing shops like Primark and New Look. QUALITY OF CLOTHES Topshop's clothes are amazing quality I have to give them that! In the summer if you are looking for quite thin but long lasting material clothing, they have it. And in the winter if you need a warm, woolly jumper to keep you nice and toasty, they have it! PRICE OF CLOTHES Some of the prices for the clothes are relatively reasonable, however some are not. Coats and jumpers priced at £50 and above make it impossible for me to be drawn to as my budget is about £40 a month! I'd end up spending my pocket money on one item of clothing! The postage for the online shopping starts from £3.95 which is average. They give you the choice between normal postage and next day delivery which is a little bit more from £4.95 , which isn't bad when you think about it right? THE LOOK/USE OF THE WEBSITE The look of the website is very eye catching and it is so easy to use. Its broken down into sections which makes it a lot easier to find things. OVERALL I would say that topshop is a good brand if you can afford it but places like Primark have just as many nice things at much affordable prices!
I for one am a hugeeeee cupcake lover! I love the look, taste and smell of them! You can be so creative with them! But for now I will tell you how to make a simple, vanilla cupcake! INGREDIENTS For the Cake : 250g unsalted butter 250g caster sugar 4 eggs 1tsp vanilla extract 185g self raising flower 60g plain flower 185 ml Milk For the icing : 125g unsalted butter 250g icing sugar 2 tsp of milk 1 tsp of vanilla extract If you want , you can get creative and make it a different colour! To do so just add a couple of drops of food colouring ! TO MAKE 1. Preheat the oven to 180C / Gas 4. Grease a 12 hole non stick muffin tray 2. Put the sugar and the butter in a bowl and beat it together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs, then the vanilla and beat until fluffy. Sift the flour into the bowl and again mix together until the mixture is creamy. While doing so add the milk then stir until creamy. 3. Next, divide your mixture between the 12 muffin holes, then bake for 20 minutes. Then take them out , to check that they are completely cooked, take a tooth pick and poke it into the cupcake and if it comes out wet then they are not done - so then place them back into the oven for another 5 minutes. 4. Once done, take them out of the oven and leave them on a cooling rack for 30 minutes 5. While waiting for them to cool make the icing TO MAKE THE ICING 1. put the unsalted butter and icing sugar into a bowl and beat until fluffy , then add the milk and vanilla extract - if you want to add food colouring just add a couple of drops to the mixture and beat until all the ingredients are mixed together. 2. Then spread the icing over the cupcakes evenly 3. Now , for the finishing touches, sprinkle some grated chocolate over the cupcakes and TADA! Hope you enjoy your cupcakes! I know I will !!
Now , for my family, the Christmas dinner is never complete without a good old trifle! Here's my recipe! INGREDIENTS 300g tinned raspberries, or fresh, whichever you prefer 425g custard 300ml whipped cream 60g trifle sponges Grated dark and white chocolate HOW TO MAKE 1. Put the raspberries in the bottom of a nice big trifle dish 2. Take the trifle sponges and arrange them around the bowl in any way you like. I like to place them in circles around the bowl 3. Next, Pour your custard into the dish, just over halfway of the bowl - make sure it is nice and even , you don't want a wonky trifle! 4. Get your whipped cream - now you can either use squirty cream or make your own, for quickness i use whipped cream - spread this evenly over the custard and fill the rest of the bowl 5. Take your grated chocolate and sprinkle on top for a decorative look. Sometimes sprinkle some vanilla on top of the whipped cream as it gives it that extra sweet taste! 6. Place in the Fridge for around 30 mins and serve This serves around 4 people so if you need to serve to more just double the ingredients and double the size of the bowl! In total this takes me around 45 mins but if you want it to be perfect then it can take around an hour. BE CREATIVE! If you want , you can use chocolate whipped cream instead of vanilla! This looks really good and tastes amazing!!! You can place mixed fruit at the bottom instead of just raspberries if you are feeling extra healthy! Overall this is a nice and easy dish that is yummy and perfect for Christmas!
In the winter, I love nothing more than bringing out all my scented candles and firing them up after a long day at college and work, and walking into a cosy, warm home. A BIT ABOUT YANKEE CANDLES Yankee candle has been around since 1975 and has continued to amaze their customers for years. Their prices range from £1.00 to a staggering £20 for a candle. Although they can be expensive , the quality and the range of their candles is amazing! They range in size from the size of a tea light, right up to a size of a jam jar. There's something for everyone. You can use them as a decoration or as a regular candle - whatever you choose they look lovely and smell gorgeous. WHERE I PURCHASED MY CANDLE/SERVICE I purchased my Yankee candle from amazon. There are many people that sell Yankee Candles on there and the service is very quick. The seller provided lots of info about the candle such as size, smell, weight and how long it lasts. PRICE For this Yankee Candle I paid a total of £6.98 , the candle was £3.99 and the postage price was £2.99. Seems pretty high for such a small candle but it was worth it! I paid a bit too much for it but again...it was worth it! It doesn't come with a holder or base so be careful - do not let it stand freely as it is not safe. I put mine in a little dish which helps a lot because the wax drips down the candle sometimes! THE SMELL The smell of this candle is Vanilla Cupcake. Not sure where the cupcake smell comes into it - it smells of vanilla and honey in my opinion. It smells lovely , don't get me wrong but I think they should of named it something like Vanilla Honey as opposed to cupcake. It is very sweet smelling so if you aren't too keen of your house smelling like a sweet shop then don't buy this haha. I love the smell, and so does my dad because we both have a sweet tooth and this just fits us perfectly, however my mum doesn't like it because it's too sweet for her....she's more of a lavender person! HOW LONG IT LASTS I haven't finished the candle yet. I am about halfway through. The burning lasts for a few hours. You don't need to burn it for long as it took about 20 minutes to make my living room smell sweet. The candle itself would probably last a few months if not years depending on how long you burn it for and how often you use it. I would say if you used it once a week, for an hour it would last about a month or two. It's quite good! The only thing I will say is that I had to light it then blow it out a few times for the smell to get going. I think the bigger candles have a stronger smell than these little one's do. These are designed for decoration I think as opposed to smelling the entire house. I have a bigger one in lavender and it smells lovely - I burn that for an hour and it makes our whole house smell lovely. The wick is quite long so I had to cut it a bit to be able to light it safely. OVERALL I would definitely recommend these kind of Yankee candles. They are great for a gift or even as a treat for yourself. They are pricey I have to admit but I love them so much that I can't resist! You can purchase them from Amazon, Ebay and many more online stores. The price varies A LOT so make sure you look around for them first before purchasing. There are so many different smells that you would eventually find one you like - I suggest buying the vanilla cupcake one if you love sweet smelling things. The one I have is excellent quality and smells lovely!
INTRO I have been using e.l.f products for over a year now and I am constantly being impressed by them. Their low price products are unbelievably good quality and I have to say that I prefer this brand over brands like Maybelline and L'oreal. E.l.f is known to do very big sales so if you want to try their products but don't want to pay full price (which isn't a lot!) then go visit them on one of their sales. They keep you up to date by emailing you once a week with their latest offers and give you exclusive promo codes to get an even bigger discount! I wanted to put that in this review as not many people know about their big sales haha! PACKAGING The E.l.f eye widener pencil comes in a thin cardboard box which protects the pencil from harm during delivery. The pencils come with a lid to prevent the pencil from getting dirty and squished alongside your other cosmetics! PRICE This pencil is one of E.l.f's cheaper products , at £1.50 QUALITY I have to say that the quality is really good. I have had the pencil for about 6 months now and I've only had to sharpen it once. It is a thin pencil but gives great results! APPLICATION To apply you simply apply on your waterlines gently which will then give the illusion of bigger and brighter eyes. You can apply on your lash line too. If you want you can put some in the corners of your eyes and underneath your brows to make them look brighter too. Sometimes i put a little bit on the top of my lip - on the bow- and this gives them a nice shine. PERFORMANCE The eye widener performs very well - it does what it is supposed to do and gives great results. It really does make your eyes look brighter, wider and gorgeous! COVERAGE The pencil goes on really well , I found that I had to re apply every 3-4 hours on my waterline. It isn't waterproof so this will wash off if you are in the rain. INGREDIENTS Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Ceresin Wax, Cera, Carnauba (Carnauba) Wax, Synthetic Beeswax, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax Rhus Succedanea Cera(Rhus Succedanea Fruit Wax, Microcrystalline Wax (Cera Microcristallina), Cetyl Alcohol Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Propylparaben, Methylparaben, BHT E.l.f try to use mainly natural ingredients in their products. They are 100% free from animal testing OVERALL Overall this is a lovely pencil which really does make your eyes pop and look brighter. If you have quite tired and dark looking eyes this is perfect because it adds that 'shine' to your eyes to make them look awake and bright. It is cheap and very good quality - go try it =)
I am a huge animal lover so when it comes to keeping them happy, I will buy, make and do as much as i can that will make them happy. Our two cats came into our family 2 years ago. Harry and Phoebe. They were little bundles of playful fun and at the time every cat toy we bought for them was destroyed within minutes! So , I put my creative hat on and started making some bits and bobs for them! You don't need to go out to get these things because I can guarantee you they are sitting in your home right now! TOY NUMBER 1 - THE TIN FOIL BALL !!! Materials : Tin foil How To make : Simply rip off some tin foil from a roll and scrunch it into a ball...Simple huh? You can vary the size from small to big. The cats will love it! You can do this with paper, fabric, anything you want, just as long as it is in the shape of a ball ! My cat had hours of fun playing with such a simple toy. She'd carry it around in her mouth, flick it with her paw, and snuggle it when she was tired ....awww! TOY NUMBER 2 - THE BOTTLE BALL!!! Materials : A plastic bottle - preferably big Sticky Tape Paper or tin foil String Rice (optional) How To make : Okay so first make the ball. You can use the tips from the last toy or you can use a different method of choice. Next get a plastic bottle , make sure it is empty and if you want you can fill it with rice or just leave it empty - but the rice is going to weight it down so it doesn't tip over. So next get a piece of string and make it about half the size of the bottle. Attach one end securely to the top of the bottle and then attach the ball to the other end. This will make a 'bopping ball' toy for the cats! The bigger the bottle the more fun it'll be for the cat! TOY NUMBER 3 - RECYCLED TOYS!!! Materials : An old teddy of some sort How To make : Not much effort is needed for this toy. Simply dig out one of your old soft toys and give it to your cat. The cat will find it very amusing ! TOY NUMBER 4 - HOME MADE SCRATCHING POST!!! Materials : An old piece of carpet OR A 'welcome' mat Staple Gun OR Velcro strips How To make : Okay so I found that with my cats when they were young they would always scratch anything rough! So , I came up with this - What I did was I got an old piece of carpet that was left over from when we had ours laid and I attached some Velcro strips to the carpet and to the back of a door. This was a very successful diy toy because they'd scratch against the carpet or old welcome mat (i used carpet for one door and a welcome mat for another!) instead of the furniture! EASY! I hope this is helpful - I found these very successful and simple! Happy Playing! Hannahisme 2011
If you are looking for a mobile phone that is both small and funky, then look no further. However if you are looking for a smart type of phone....don't bother looking at this phone. I bought this phone on a 3 monthly contract. I payed 15 pounds a month for 500 minutes and 600 texts. Now this sounds pretty good but the price to use the internet was ridiculous. The design of this phone is both funky and simple. The slim design makes it easy to handle and the weight makes it easy to carry around. It is an attractive phone that would perhaps suit a younger generation, rather than an adult. The keys of the phone are easy to use and to find but they are a bit small for people that have big fingers. The K660i's simple design makes it so straightforward to use. The layout on the menu is also simple to use too. The keypad keys light up as you press them, which is useful if you are in the dark or in a dark area. You can't fault the screen with its 240 x 320 pixels, 262 thousand colours, 2 diagonal inches of display area. It is clear to read and very crisp. The weight of the phone is 95g and its height is 104mm , 47mm of width and 15m of thickness. Its so slim it could fit into every pocket! The colours that you can get are Silver and Black, Wine and Black, Black and Blue or Lime and Green. I own the Wine and Black phone and it is both stylish and funky! However it does attract dust very easily so it may need a clean every now and then! I would say that the black and silver phone looks smart and is more suited for a man. However the silver would chip and scratch more easy. The black and blue is hard to get but if you can get it, i would say it looks good. The lime and green phone in my opinion looks quite cheap and tacky looking. Also the white would show more dirt! I have dropped my phone a few times and there are some scratches on it, so its not completely scratch proof. I have got it wet and it did freeze for a while but didn't break. I have also dropped it in snow which made it freeze for ages so it's not ideal for cold, wet weather In the box you get : the phone, a charger, instructions, a USB cable, a hands free kit, a CD setup guide to make uploading videos and photos much easier. Heres some of the pro's and cons i found with this phone: PROS Slim design makes it easy to hold Its light video time is up to 4 hours! fast internet good connection holds lots of music the size of the screen makes everything easy to see CONS camera quality not the best - 2.0 MP buttons are small If you are someone that is looking for a Candy bar kind of phone then this is perfect.
I for one am a huge Sharpie lover. I swear i own more Sharpie pens than Staples! They are a reliable brand that never disappoint. The highlighter collection that Sharpie sells is exceptionally good. They are easy to use, bright, bold, colorful, smudge resistant and they don't bleed through paper which is one of the main problems with most highlighters. The price to buy them is very reasonable i would say. You can buy a pack of 6 for about 4 dollars in Walmart or Target. I live in the UK so I find it hard to buy them, but i go on holiday to America each year and stock up on them! I've found that you can buy them off of Ebay for quite a reasonable price, so if you live in the UK and won't be travelling to America any time soon, then Ebay would be the ideal place. Here are some of many of the Sharpie Highlighter collections : Sharpie Accent Highlighter Pocket Sharpie Accent Highlighter Mini Sharpie Accent Highlighter Mini Fashion Wrap (The Newest) Sharpie Accent Highlighter Pocket Pink Ribbon (A Special Edition To Support City Of Hope Cancer Research Center) Sharpie Accent Highlighter Tank Sharpie Accent Highlighter Retractable Sharpie Accent Highlighter Generation Sharpie Accent Highlighter Liquid Pen Sharpie Accent Highlighter Jumbo I am a year 11 student and in many of my lessons, such as English , i have to use highlighters to, well, highlight important things. The most annoying thing i find with highlighter pens is that they tend to smudge writing and bleed through paper. I was so pleased when I discovered the Sharpie highlighters because they really brighten up my books! The Sharpie Accent highlighters were named this because they have a wide range of vibrant colors. This is a well known brand of disposable highlighters and pens in the US, and now beginning to hit other stores in different countries around the world. The design isn't 'unique' and it doesn't stand out. But the performance of these highlighters is amazing. The smell of them isn't strong like you would find with the Sharpie Marker pens, they have an odor free smell! The usage of these pens is great. I used mine for about a year at least twice a week for essays and highlighting books and they didn't run out until the end of my school year which i found brilliant. Here's some pros and cons i found: PROS Many vibrant colours to choose from sturdy material, doesn't break if you drop it plenty of ink smell free light, easy grip ink dry's quickly smudge/smear free doesn't bleed through paper good value for money CONS permanent, so if you get it on clothes it won't come off - if this happens apparently if you use a one dollar bill, it comes off!! can't buy them in the UK - you can only seem to buy the mini one's and yellow one's They are around £14.99 for a pack of 8 and for single one's they are around £0.95 - prices vary per shop
I find that all foundation is lonely without a good old powder to set it! Pressed powder for me is a must after applying my foundation as it sets it and gives a lovely fresh finish. Boots natural collection pressed powder is a great product and i would recommend it to anyone. COLORS Warm - this would be good for with relatively dark skin Cool - this is good for people with medium to fair skin Neutral - this is great for people with fair, pale skin as it gives them a lovely glow PRICE The price for this powder foundation is just £1.99. For what you get i think that the price is reasonable and is great for anyone on a budget. THE LOOK It gives you a lovely warm glow and it finishes off your make up nicely. You can wear it as a finishing coat for your foundation or you could even wear it on it's own if you are in a rush or just want to look fresh. It is very easy to remove and lasts a long time if you use a primer before. If you do not use a primer before using the powder it lasts about 1-4 hours i would say. PACKAGING The packaging is very simple and light. It is a screw top lid so not too fussy. However i found that the screw top lid can sometimes be quite annoying if you are in a rush and just want to slam the lid on and go. The lid is clear so you can see what color it is. OVERALL This is a great product that leaves you looking fresh. It is cheap and good quality that i would recommend you go buy.
I wrote this review a while ago on my CIAO so I thought I would share it here on DooYoo. A year ago my family and I got a puppy. He was/is adorable! BUT The mess he made was NOT! He wee'd about a million times a day and pooped more than a baby! My parents had a lot of experience in puppies/dogs, but a friend recommended we used these puppy pads. THE PERFORMANCE These handy sized puppy pads are great for plopping down on the floor and letting the puppy do it's business on them. They don't smell (until the puppy's done its business on them of course) and they are soft. They are about the size of a tea towel but are't as absorbent! HOWEVER These puppy pads that you pay about 5 pounds for 10 pads, are just like putting some newspaper down on the floor. If you save up on newspapers it's a lot easier than spending about 20 pounds for not many pads when you can spend about a pound for a newspaper with 50 odd sheets in! AND they're biodegradable which some of the puppy pads aren't as they have a plastic lining. THE PACKAGING the packaging is just like baby nappies except it is for puppies. It's very easy to spot in the supermarket. Overall they are good if you don't mind paying 5 pounds per 10 pads. If you do use these don't assume that the wee/poo won't go on the floor because it does. Make sure you use disinfectant on the floor after the puppies been.
INTRO I don't usually use Burt's Bees products, I am more of a Tresseme kind of person when it comes to hair products! I won the Burt's Bees Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo in a competition i entered a few months back so I was pleased that I could finally test some of their products like i had been meaning to! BURTS BEES Burt's Bees is a company that makes lip,face,hair and body products that are made from almost 100% natural materials. Their aim is to use as little chemicals in their products as possible. They are well known for their bee's wax lip balms! PACKAGING The shampoo comes in a 354ml bottle which is yellow. The cap is very secure - it is a flip cap which is where you press down hard on one side of the cap and a small hole opens up on the other side to allow the shampoo to be released. The bottle isn't the most appealing however it stands out from other well known brands because of the pictures of the Grapefruit and Sugar beet on the front to show people that it is made from natural ingredients. The label is very clear as to what it is and what is in it which I like because most products tend to put their ingredients and 'about me's' in the smallest writing EVER ! PRICE For a 354ml bottle it is £9.99 from the Burt's Bees website. However on Amazon it is £8.50. You can purchase this in some supermarkets but not all. I have seen it appear and disappear in Tesco and Morrisons but It comes and goes a lot! SMELL The smell was a little strange at first because I am used to perfume-y smelling shampoos. It smelt sweet and a bit like rubber gloves at first but I can definitely smell the grapefruit in it! I can still smell it now after I have washed my hair with it! It is a very different kind of smell and it stays with you! APPLICATION Simply squirt some of the shampoo into the palm of your hand and rub into your hair as you usually would. You can apply two lots but I just do one because I like to keep some sort of grease in my hair to keep it healthy. PERFORMANCE It hasn't left my hair super shiny however it has left it looking a lot healthier which is really good because my hair has been exposed to heat, chemicals and all kinds of bad things! It's not as frizzy either which is good too. Every time I flick my hair or my hair moves it releases the grapefruit smell which is lovely! It's like an air freshener at your own movement! It has also left my hair feeling soft and looking fresh. OVERALL Overall this is a nice gift for someone but I wouldn't pay 10 pounds each time for it! It's not a very big bottle so it won't last long! The smell is lovely but it doesn't leave my hair looking shiny - but it does look a lot healthier. I like the fact it is used of 98.8% natural ingredients ! This is good for people with frizzy and damaged hair. Hannahaisme 2011
INTRO I love my biscuits! Every week when we go shopping we get a packet of Jacobs Club Chocolate Biscuit bars. I have bought these for a few years now and I really cannot fault them. They are just one of those biscuits that has a flavor for everyone! FLAVORS The biscuits come in 4 different flavors Chocolate Mint Orange Fruit Chocolate - the chocolate biscuit is lovely and creamy and so soft - your teeth sink into the delicious chocolatey top and then through the biscuity crunchy base. Mint - the mint biscuit is refreshing and tastey. You first bite through a thin layer of chocolate, then a lovely minty base then the mouthwatering crunchy base. Orange - the orange biscuit is tangy and delicious. the chocolate base comes first once again, then the lovely layer of orange comes next, followed by the crunchy base. Fruit - the fruit biscuit is chewy and sweet. Again there is a chocolate base then a fruity layer , followed by the crunchy base. My personal favorite is the plain chocolate. I love nothing more than dunking it into my cup of tea and licking the soft chocolate off of the biscuit. It is creamy and delicious and will make you want more! My least favorite is the fruit one. It's not that I hate fruit, I just don't like raisins and dried fruit in general. I think it just ruins the point of having a sneaky chocolate biccy! SMELL Each biscuit smells different because of the different flavors. The plain chocolate smells creamy and chocolatey. The orange one smells of orange. The mint one smells minty. And the fruit one smells mainly of chocolate but you do get a fruity whiff to it. PACKAGING You can purchase the biscuits in packs of 8. The 8 biscuits are packed in a thick plastic wrapping. Each biscuit is individually wrapped in a paper wrapping followed by a tin foil wrapper which keeps each biscuit lovely and fresh! The colors of the wrappers match the flavors.
