Carex Antibacterial Handwash - Bubblegum.

Just a quick one from me today, as it's approaching 4AM and I figure I should pop up a new post.


Anyone that's spent a considerable amount of time with me will know I go through handwash like nobodies business. Don't ask me how but I just do.

For the past few months I've been using the Carex Cola Bottles but I recently stocked up on this one and it's my new favourite. It has the perfect bubblegum scent without being overbearingly sickly. It almost smells good enough to eat but I'm guessing it wouldn't taste that great.

I feel like the Carex 'Fun' Scents are more aimed at kids but hey, who said there's an age limit on handwash?

Yankee Candle - Sweetest Valentine.

I know it's a little late but I thought I'd introduce you to my Valentine this year ...


Sweetest Valentine is a limited edition scent that comes out every year for (you guessed it!) Valentines day. It's one of very few swirl candles that Yankee do, meaning it only comes in the medium housewarmer jar.

Swirled together are the two scents sparkling cinnamon (red) and vanilla cupcake (white). I'm not big on pure cinnamon scented things but the vanilla cupcake gives it a delicious sweet edge.

It would seem it's sold out for this year, though you might be able to find it on eBay for a decent price. If you love candles with a really warm, comforting scent it's worth checking out when it's gets released again.

Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue.

It's been a little long while since I last sat down and wrote a post. I won't bore with you the details as to why but I think I'm ready to start writing again. I come armed with a ton of photos and new products to review for you.

Following on from my last post I thought I'd post about some new Baby Lips. The Dr Rescue collection, it claims to be more moisturising than the originals.


What www.maybelline.com says:
No more basic lip balm
Medicated care + 12 HR hydration
Soothes quickly with a hint of eucalyptus.
Cools sore lips with a touch of icy menthol
In 6 (4 in the UK) new natural tints to even out lip tone for healthier-looking lips.

Why you'll love it:
Medicated care soothes sore lips and combats dryness
In 6 new natural tints
In 1 minute, lips feel soothed
In 1 day, lips look more smooth
In 1 week, lips are renewed.

I was keen to see how these compared to the original line up. I love their ease of use (no fingers in pots here!) and their price point makes it perfect for keeping on me at work.

Too Cool is a colourless balm. Just Peachy has the most colour payoff and is a really pretty nude. Coral Crave is the one with the least colour, it has only the slightest tint. Pink Me Up has a slight bright pink tint. The colours are only very minimal, nothing too in your face. They all come with a fresh menthol scent.

I do find these a little thicker and have a little less slip than the originals. I do feel they are slightly more moisturising though I'm not sure I believe the claims in renewed lips. I adore the fresh scent and the very slight tingle.

I love the Baby Lips formula, it's very light for daytime wear and they're fairly cheap. I always pick them up when they're on 3 for 2. They're usually on some kind of offer so definitely check them out.
