Green Angel Sunrise Body Smoother

I love a good body scrub. For me it has to do several things - exfoliate well, not feel to greasy on the skin, smell nice and look pretty. Yes, I am one of those girls who like things to look and smell pretty while doing a good job.

Bearing these in mind, let me introduce you to Green Angel Sunrise Body Smoother*. This isn't my first dance with this lovely, but I was recently reintroduced to it and I can't believe I had forgotten how lovely it is.

This body smoother features lots of good things for your skin including natural salts, seaweed extract and argan oil. This baby will not only exfoliate your skin but it will also nourish your skin. It's recommended for all skin types and is a go to for many people looking to remove fake tan remnants.The smell is a heavenly citrus base that is really uplifting. You can even smell it the day after using it.

It's on the dearer side for body exfoliators, retailing at €29.95 but for that price you are getting 500ml of product and the guarantee that there are no nasties hiding in the ingredients list. From having this previously, I would say you will get six months easily out of it. Possibly more. 

If you are in the market for a luxurious body exfoliator, you won't go far wrong with this. 

Green Angel also do a lovely facial and hand products. I've already picked up a few in work to give as Chritmas gifts. They can be found in selected pharmacies, a list can be found here

Have you ever tried Green Angel?

Easy Peasy Halloween Nails

I love a bit of nail art, unfortunately I can't really get a handle on it at all. So this Halloween, I decided to go the easy route and use some Impress Nails that were sent to me.

 I just love this design especially the spider. Little man thought they were pretty cool too with "Oh A Spider, Wow!"

Impress Nails are available year round with plain nails colours and designed nails from Penneys and selected pharmacies. They range in price from €7 to €10. I've been known to pick up some styles for occassions when I feel like rocking some nail art.

Cocoa Brown Chocolate Whip

The latest member to the Cocoa Brown family is Chocolate Whip. I knew when I first heard of this lovely, I really wanted it.

This lovely isn't just any body lotion, it's an oil free body lotion. Something that is really hard to come across but something that is really good for when you are sporting a tan. A normal body lotion will streak and fade your tan but this lovely will protect your tan and extends the life of your tan. Marissa also recommends using Chocolate Whip for when you are getting ready to tan.

Containing both Vitamin E and Panthenol, Chocolate Whip will help hydrate your skin therefore ensuring a gorgeous even tan.

It didn't take me long to open the pink envelope when it arrived last week and within minutes, I had applied it. The first thing you see is a gorgeous milk chocolate body lotion.

Then once you start applying Chocolate Whip, you get an instant hit of the familiar and addictive Tahitian Gardenia scent with a little hit of Cocoa. The cocoa isn't overpowering like other body lotions I can think of.  No word of a lie, I sniffed my arms all night and even the next day I could still smell the heavenly scent.

Chocolate Whip is going to retail at €7.99 and will be available in all Cocoa Brown stockists from November 11th. However, I may have seen it in one or two pharmacies already. This one is a definite to pick up and try along with the new tubes of Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff.
