Micro Pedi & Nails Inc Bundle* | £39.99 | Exclusively at Boots!

If theres one thing I hate about the human body, its feet! I'm not sure what it is, but I really do have the strangest feeling about feet, I don't like to look at other peoples feet, and I certainly dont like anyone touching mine! Is this just me?

What I do like about feet is to make sure they look and feel healthy. This involves keeping them clean, moisturised, keeping my nails in shape and painting them with a bright, fresh colour every now and again. Despite all this care and attention, I've noticed my heels have become cracked and very dry recently (maybe due to wearing poor quality shoes and sandals) and this is where today's product review comes into play...

I've seen the TV ads for Micro-Pedi endless times, but who really trusts the ads? So eventually I decided it was about time to try it for myself and see what all the fuss was about. When I saw that Micro Pedi had teamed up with Nails Inc to offer this fantastic bundle I had to get my hands on it! This bundle includes the award winning Micro-Pedi electric foot file, a cleaning brush and 2 limited edition Nails Inc nail varnishes.

The Micro Pedi is battery powered, and requires 2 x AA Batteries(which aren't included), but then you're good to go! It uses a gritted roller which spins 360 degrees up to 30 times a second. You hold this against the damaged skin areas on your feet and it effortlessly and painlessly buffs away the dead, hard and jagged skin  to leave you with soft and smooth feet. It literally took me about 5 minutes to treat both feet, and you can see just how fantastic the results are in the image above(click the image to enlarge, if you don't mind looking at feet!). I still can't get over how smooth my heels are now! The thing I love most is that I can achieve these salon results in the comfort of my own home, without anyone going near my feet!

The Nails Inc polishes I received (I think the colours can vary in different bundles) were Brook Street - a gorgeous bright red-pink, and Porchester Place - a bright and fresh orange! I decided to try them both out, one on my hands and one on my feet, what a lovely contrast in colours! The polishes are both equal quality, they were easy to apply, dried relatively quickly, and to a glossy, streak-free finish.

The only negative point I might raise is that the roller on the Micro-Pedi will probably only last for a few uses depending on how bad your skin is and how often you use it as the grit wears down pretty quickly. However you can get different strengths/coarseness when you buy replacement Micro-Pedi rollers at a cost of £12.95 for a pack of 2 at Boots.

The overall value of this box comes to £59.99, however this is currently on introductory offer at Boots for just £39.99. So, you want beautifully soft and smooth feet again? You need the Micro-Pedi in your life! And now that you've read my review, and seen some genuine results and images, you can see that it really does work, you have my word!

Pink Parcel Subscription Box | £9.99 (Incl. P&P)

I know I know, we're all sick of beauty box reviews by now, and trust me I've had my fair share of them, including Glossybox and Birchbox. However, today I have something a little different for you. I was first introduced to Pink Parcel through a "recommended for you" post on my Facebook newsfeed and there was an introductory offer for new customers where you get your first box for £5.95(including P&P) so naturally I had to give it a go, I'm a sucker for a bargain! 

Pink Parcel is a montly subscription service, and it is based around your monthly menstruation cycle(I know I know, not really something you wanna be talking about on a beauty blog, but most, if not all of my readers will go through this, so we're all friends here, right!) When you sign up, you pick your preferred branding and absorbency of tampons, and when you would like to receive your box in time for the beginning of your period. The box will then be dispatched in time to provide you with what you need and a few little treats to cheer you up too :)

This was my first box, and I thought it was great value for money, as I say I took the introductory offer price of £5.95 and here's what I got in my box:

You get 25 tampons in your box as standard and you get to choose which brand and what flow type you need. If 25 isn't enough for your cycle you can let Pink Parcel know and they can make arrangements for you. The tampons also come with a cute black velvet pouch "for now - keep these in your bag"!
(I have also read on the FAQ section of Pink Parcel, that when they launch their new website in September they will also be offering sanitary towels as well as tampons, if this is more suited to you!)

I've always wanted to try the real Bio Oil, as I've always bought dupes/cheaper versions from Poundland, which seem to have done the trick but I can really tell the difference in using this one, mainly because this formula is light and not greasy. I use this on my inner thighs as I have some stretch marks which I've had since I was about 14, seriously crappy! But the Bio Oil claims to reduce the appearance and fight against scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing skin and dehydrated skin. 

I received a 50ml tube of this which is actually the full size product. This is an ideal product for this time of year, as it contains a very high SPF value of 50+ to protect your skin from sun damage. Enriched with a hydrating complex, not only does it protect but also moisturises to leave your skin feeling velvety soft and smooth. The formula isn't sticky and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, but does take a bit of massaging in. It is suitable for normal-combination skin, perfect for my skin type!

A lot of us forget that our lips also need protecting against the sun just as much as our skin does, so this handy little twist-up lip balm/lipstick which has SPF30 and moisturising waxes is ideal to just pop in your handbag. It can also be used on more sensitive and sunburn prone areas of your face for added protection. Multi-use products are always a winner in my book! 

A minty, light and refreshing tea to help relieve a dodgy stomach, perfect if you suffer from period cramps and pains, or if you're just generally feeling a little under the weather to help maintain a healthy digestive system!

Not a brand I've come across before, but I love it already, this hot pink shade is gorgeous, and perfectly bright and bold for summer :) The polish is super easy to apply, dries quickly and has a glossy, non streaky finish. 

Who doesn't love a bit of chocolate? Especially during that time of the month! This delicious chocolate is infused with sweet vanilla and contains maca to give you an extra boost!

Overall I thought this box was fabulous value for money and I have also just got the dispatch confirmation for my next box. I would definitely recommend you try this box, even if you do just have the first introductory one, as you can cancel anytime.

Haircare | Philip Kingsley Stimulating Scalp Mask Review

Philip Kingsley Stimulating Scalp Mask* | Look Fantastic | £16.00

I've done a fair few hair related posts just lately, but I'm always up for trying new products to improve the overall health and condition of my hair. This Stimulating Scalp Mask from Philip Kingsley claims to help your hair grow by encouraging blood circulation and maintaining a healthy scalp and improving hair texture and behaviour.

The product comes in a squeezy tube, with the standard Philip Kingsley professional looking white packaging and coloured font. The formula has a luxuriously thick & creamy consistency. It is advised that you should use the product once a week on damp hair. I apply by massaging into the roots of my hair and scalp, the product should be left to work on your hair for between 10-20 minutes - during this time you will probably feel a slight tingling/cooling sensation, before rinsing out. I personally like to rinse my hair with cool water, which will also soothe and refresh. 

Luckily I've never suffered with any scalp conditions, but I'm sure this product would really help anyone who does have an itchy or flaky scalp as it feels really refreshing, cool and soothing whilst the product is on your hair. Unfortunately this feeling didn't last much longer after rinsing the product out.

The product contains a range of vitamins and minerals for extra added goodness, to improve the texture of your hair. I have noticed a general overall improvement in the feel and appearance of my hair after using this product, but I think to notice a growth improvement this would take at least a few more months of trialing the product. The product comes in 75ml and is priced at £16 from Look Fantastic, which I estimate that you would get about 10-15 uses out of, which equals out at 10-15 weeks worth, so not a bad price considering! 

If you were interested, you can read a bit about the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer in my review here.
Have you tried this or any of the Philip Kingsley hair treatments?

Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara Review

Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara* | Look Fantastic | £15.20

I've never tried anything from Bare Minerals before, although I'm constantly seeing their products on QVC when I watch the beauty sessions, but I was recently sent the a mascara from their range to try out and review for you. The Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara claims to be a 10-in-1 volumizing mascara...What are the 10 benefits I hear you ask?

Volumizes, Lengthens, Thickens, Separates, Lifts, All-day wear, Mineral fortified, Smudge-resistant, Resists clumps, Fights Flakes.

The first and most noticeable thing about this product is the funky, bold packaging. The box is hot pink in colour with bold black fonts, and in a diamond shape. The mascara tube is also strangely shaped, and has indents in the top section for easier hold whilst applying. Which then brings me onto the wand... which has been given the name of a ProTwist180 - which spirals 180 degrees around the entire length of the wand. This is specifically designed to curve around each lash and coat from all different angles to ensure maximum coverage. I personally found the brush a little awkward and it was hard to reach shorter and corner lashes. Saying this, I think I've become to accustomed to my current mascara with a "spoon" shaped wand, so this is probably just my preference. 

The colour is "Intense black" which is a very deep pure black shade, perfect for a dark, smokey eye look. The formula is quite wet and thick, so I did leave the wand to dry out a little before applying to my lashes to stop them from clumping together too much. I applied 2 coats(as I usually would) of BM Lash Domination and although I didn't find it lengthened my lashes all that much, it certainly volumized and separated my lashes as you can see in the images above!

The mascara contains nourishing minerals and a protein complex to give your lashes a little TLC whilst wearing. Talking about wear, I applied this to my lashes for a normal day at the office, and I found that it does not smudge or flake, and didn't irritate my sensitive eyes at all. So great for everyday and all-day wear! 

Overall, this is a great all rounder mascara, and does actually meet all 10 of its claims for me! Although I think that people with particularly short lashes might struggle with the wand. The mascara comes in a little over my usual budget but still cheaper than the bloggers favourite - Benefit "They're Real", which this could be a very good match to! 

What is your favourite mascara and why?
