AmbiPur Smelly to Smiley

AmbiPur On Wednesday I received a refreshing package from Atmosphere it was the AmbiPur #SmellyToSmiley pack with amazing products that fight odour not only in your bathroom and toilet but throughout the house.

A survey was conducted by Columinate on behalf of Ambi Pur South Africa to find out how do South African women really feel about smells and the one that shocked me the most was the 57% that have avoided visiting someone’s home because of a bad of our/smell.

Here are some other results from the survey:

74% feel that all their homes have some degree of bad smells
95% think it’s very important to have a good smelling home (I agree)
62% of women say that garbage smells are the worst household of odours.
Very interesting results indeed with the bathroom taking the number one spot when it comes to worst smells found in the homes with 70%, the area where an air freshener is used most is the toilet but did you know you can also use in the lounge and bedroom (I didn’t know I only used my air freshener in the toilet).
I must say how our homes smells plays a big part of who visits or not.
I enjoyed using the Ambi Pur Freshelle in these two scents lavender and comfort and ocean and wind. My favorite is the lavender and comfort and my home smells pleasant. My car had this petrol smell when you open it, now thanks to the AmbiPur Car in flowers and spring my car smells like the garden.

Thank you Atmosphere and AmbiPur for the #SmellytoSmiley experience

Review: Ideal Luminous Antique Rose Blush

Blush

I have been trying makeup lately and I slowly enjoy using and wearing it. My first ever blush is the Avon Ideal Luminous Antique Rose Blush, I love the name of the colour antique rose sounds interesting. I love the packaging, especially the design on top of the compact classy and elegant.

Blush Swatch
The blush is quite soft on the skin easy to apply and blend in, I wish that it lasted a little bit longer. I must say after my first try I know understand the purpose of applying blush to your cheeks it really makes a difference.

I will be buying the product again but in a different colour, maybe a little subtle, although I like this color its too bright for me or maybe I will get used to it. Regular Price is R129.95 from any Avon Representatives.It is also available in these following colours Soft Plum, Peach and Russet.

Do you apply blush and which colours do you use or like?

After rinsing it out my hair feels moisturized and soft. The product is yolk yellow in color. Directions are after washing your hair apply it and leave it for a maximum five minutes and rinse off.
My first impression of this product is good and out of a five I will give it three and a half , it is still early days .

KIEHL’S Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream Review

BB Cream
When I got news from Beauty Bulletin that I will be receiving KIEHL’S
Actively Correcting and Beautifying BB Cream to review, I was over the moon because I have heard only good things about the KIEHL’S products.

The BB cream contains SPF50 which is really good for protecting your skin from sun damage and vitamin c.This BB cream is really different to other creams I have used it has a thick texture formula a which makes it feel more like a foundation.It easily blends into my skin when I apply it and instantly covers my dark spots and evens out my skin and making my pores less noticeable.

swatches

It leaves my skin feeling moisturized which makes it good when you have dry or combination skin as it won’t dry out your skin,

Out of 5 I will give it a 4 because I think its a bit pricey to pay R525.00 for a 30ml bottle other than that it is a high end BB cream and it delivers what it promises.

Avon Nature Green Tea and Verbena Spritz Review

Avon Spritz

It seems like I take time to try products just like the Spritz sprays from Avon, I cannot get enough. I find the bottle cute and easy to handle also fits into my handbag perfectly. It comes in a 100ml bottle and affordable too at a normal price of R40.90 from any Avon Representatives.

I bought the Green Tea and Verben scented spritz smells so divine, it is so gentle on the skin and the scent lasts surprisingly longer than I expected. Its natural and gives instant freshness. I am spraying everything my clothes and my linen. I will be buying more of these spritz since I am not a fan of perfume I find them too strong.

If perfume give to you a headache like me then I totally recommend that you give these energising scented spritz.
