  1. Gosh…so many new things. I am coming back to old goodies I have and revisited Pump Haircare Thickening mask. Why oh why it is not available in stores? Need a lifetime supply! Stuff is magic !

  2. Thanks BH for a comprehensive range of Products really like the Hollywood Fashion Secrets Bra Band Extender what a great idea.
    Also the Apple Cider Vinegar Supplements. So many great products.

  3. I am always intrigued by the new releases and most interesting one here is the mask sanitiser. I'd love to buy the Lovekins children's book too since my lo loves to read books (rather look at the picutres)

  4. I think they've created it in part to help people who are suffering from "mask-ne". I know I've been tempted to buy it because I've been getting pimples from wearing masks, but (a) I just remember to wash my masks post-wear & (b) the first ingredient of that mask sanitiser is one I'm allergic to (alcohol denat), so I'd need to test first.

  5. Although I don't use this particular brand of body brush, I do use one from the Body Shop every morning before I shower. It does seem to help with circulation and makes my skin feel more 'alive'!
