Lou's Reviews :: Liz Earle Superskin Body Cream

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Recently, I was sent Liz Earle's Superskin Body Cream to try, test and review.

As you may know, if you are a regular reader of Sprinkle of Glitter (which I do hope you are), I regularly review Liz Earle products and absolutely love them. I find they suit my skin beautifully, do the job they say they will and look great on my dressing table too.

So when the Superskin Body Cream popped through my letterbox, I was pretty excited.

Liz Earle says:

"This divinely aromatic, ultra-rich body cream is formulated with 25% plant oils – making it our most intensive body moisturiser ever. With East African shea butter, organic rosehip oil, antioxidant cranberry seed oil and pomegranate extract, natural source vitamin E, plus the divine scent of neroli, this luxurious cream helps mature or very dry skin look and feel visibly plump and smooth."

Weeeeellll I don't have mature skin (at least I hope I don't, being a spritely 20something!) or very dry skin. I would say I lean more towards dry on the moisture scale, but not very dry. I think this is why this product, is sadly not for me.

As always with Liz Earle products, the packaging is sophisticated and luxurious- how may other body creams come in a fancy double carded box? Although, for £28.10 for the 200ml tube, you'd want a bit of zazz, non?

The problem I had with this, didn't lie in the beautiful packaging though, it was the actual product- the cream.

I found the scent to be extremely strong and reminded me quite a lot of an older lady. As you will know, I'm fussy about smells but Matt agreed that this was perhaps a bit much. I suppose if you liked the smell and didn't want to wear any perfume then this might suit, but for me, it was a no no.

Onto the actual cream. I didn't like it. Yes, IT DID MOISTURISE. I can't fault it in the doing-your-job-department, but it was incredibly oily. When dispensed from the squeezy tube (more on this in a mo), there was a little puddle of oil surrounding the cream. This does rub in and is only because of the 25% plant oils but for me, I didn't like it. It wasn't aesthetically pleasing.

I think this item would have been better suited to a pump dispenser or perhaps a finer nozzle because it very quickly became all messy and gunky, which a) looks bleaugh and b) encourages bacteria and other nasties.

I must say, I feel awful to give a Liz Earle product a bad review and I did think about this for a loonnng time before I wrote it. In the end I decided that Sprinkle of Glitter's loyalty must always lie with it's Bloggerinos. I will always tell you the truth about my thoughts on a product, even if it means I might not get sent any more from that particular brand.

In summary, the Superskin Body Cream wasn't suited for me. That isn't to say the product is bad, it does moisturise and I had no negative skin reactions, it just wasn't my cuppa tea.

I do however have a review of the Sheer Skin Tint coming up and that is a woweeamazingiloveitsomuch kinda item, so I won't feel too bad for the thumbs down today!

Have you tried this product? Do you like oily creams?

Lou's Reviews :: OPI Mini Stems Pack

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Since we all love a good review here and there, I uploaded one to my YouTube Channel and thought I would share it on here as well. I really love this kit and can't wait til I can start my giveaway with my extra packs! Yay!

As you will see from the video, this is a buurrrrilliant little kit and I thoroughly recommend it!

Plant pot packaging floats my boat!

Who can resist pinks and sparkles? I know I can't!

Did you enjoy my YouTube review? Is this a set you can see sneaking into your collection?

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I'm having a HUGE houseclearout. Before I take things to charity shops and eBay, I wanted to give you first dibs on everything because I know you are bargain hunters and love a good blog sale!

So, first up are some dresses. I won't go into the details because I have blogged about them before but just to let you know, I have DRAMATICALLY LOWERED the prices. I would like to just have them out of my house really.

I will be selling them for £25 each, inc P&P. Considering I bought these for £80 each, this is super snazzy and you'd be picking up a total gem. I have UK sizes 8, 12 and 16.

You can see them here----> SUPER LOVELY DRESSES!!!

I think these'll be snapped up fairly quick, so please comment on this post with your paypal email. It will be first come, first serve.

Happy Shopping!




I'm going to be using my pennies on buying Baby Glitter some sleepsuits (the kids grows at an alarming rate!), a highchair, a new carseat (her newborn one will soon be too small) and one of those things babies sit in and can walk around with the aid of wheels- like a zimmaframe but sitting down and for babies haha. She is growing quicker than I anticipated!! Eeeekk!!

(I couldn't resist a cuteypie snap for you all)

Lou's Reviews :: HD Brow Kit- Foxy

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I was sent this High Definition Brow Kit a few weeks back and since I feel I have now thoroughly tested it, I thought I would share my thoughts with you all.

The HD Brow Kit comes in 3 different versions- Bombshell for blondes, Foxy for brunettes and Vamp for those of us with very dark hair. I have been given Foxy because I have brown hair and might I just say- it is the PERFECT match!

Each kit contains 4 anti-smudge pressed powders which can actually be used as eyeshadows or eyeliners as well, depending on what kind of brush you use. You could even use the very light hue as a subtle highlighter for uner the brow bone.

I have been using the little brush provided and the light chocolate brown for my brows and a little certainly does go a long way. I have also used the 2 lighter shades on my chum Charlotte's brows and even though she is blonde and the kit is designed for brunettes, it worked perfectly, so there is a lot of scope for flexibility with this product.

I think the packaging of this product is rather swish. It arrives in a sleek black box and the palette, as you can see, matches the black theme. I really like black packaged products, I think they feel demure or grownup somehow. I also like the that eyebrow brush is actually quite good at it's job (usually the provided applicators are pretty poor) and that there is a reasonable sized mirror, so you could take this product out and about with you and apply on the go. I will definitely be taking this on my upcoming travels!

So here you have a bit of a barefaced snap, with my eyebrows in their au naturel state.

And here we have it once I have used the Foxy HD Brow Palette. I actually prefer this to my MAC Eyebrow Pencils in Fling and Dirty Blonde- something I thought would never ever happen!!

It has great staying power- as in, is there when I take my makeup off at night, and I love how it makes my eyebrows just look lovely and defined and natural and not 'drawn on', like some products do.

Above is the eyebrow in question (ooof sounds like it's done something wrong, naughty little eyebrow) but with the rest of my makeup applied. I think alone it looked a little severe so I wanted to show you that it looks lovely (even if I do say so myself) when everything else is set.

The HD Brow Kit retails for £19.99 and you can find more info about it HERE or call 0845 644 3994 (ext 32). I think for such a versatile product with 4 shades, decent brush, mirror and good packaging, this is a great price and I would happily repurchase!
What do you think? Do perfect brows float your boat?



When All Around You Falls Apart....

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I saw this whilst actually looking for something else and loved it so much I had to share!


I have quite a few Lou's Reviews coming up and a chitchat lifey catch up post too!

Hope you're all well and enjoying summer!

The September Issue

I had the incredible honor of being featured in the September issue of Vogue as a Vogue Influencer. It was the experience of a lifetime and I cannot thank everyone involved- including Vogue and CoverGirl- enough.

Congratulations to the incredible ladies Beth, Karen & Tess who I shared the honor with.
