Tangle Teezer Review ♥

I think I may have the worlds knottiest hair. It really is horrendous sometimes. Even my hairdresser says my hair is a nightmare! I was horrified recently when I looked at my hair brush, and literally the whole hair brush was embedded with my hair...gross, I know. I knew I had to do something about it. I always deep condition my hair, I always use heat defense spray, so I knew I really was doing everything I could to stop these knots. Everyone kept telling me to get a Tangle Teezer, but at £10.99, I just thought it was too expensive for a hair brush. I was so wrong...
 In the end I bought one because I just couldn't put up with the knots. I am so glad I did too, and £10.99 is worth every penny. This brush is just amazing. It has little teeth, which makes getting rid of knots super easy. My hair used to take a good ten minutes to fully brush when wet, but now I'm done within two minutes. When I used to brush my hair with a regular brush, I'd see strands of hair clung to my hair brush after use. I don't get this with the Tangle Teezer, and it really is pain-free. 
 I always thought that the Tangle Teezers looked really heavy too, but they're really light an compact. I have no difficulties popping it into my handbag at all. Tangle Teezer have bought out a more compact range for the handbag however, but I really don't have any problems with the regular size. The Tangle Teezer comes in lots of different designs, and I opted for a blue, sparkly one. 
I really am so happy with this product. If you have problems with knotty hair, then I definitely recommend the Tangle Teezer!
Boots currently are doing 3 for 2, and you can purchase the Tangle Teezer for £10.99.

L'oreal Superliner in Black Crystal Review ♥

I have been using the L'oreal Superliner for the last two years, and absolutely love it! I think it is the best eyeliner I have ever used, and I now only use this over any eyeliner. It has amazing staying power, and I mean amazing...it literally doesn't budge. It is so easy to apply and only takes one application to get a lovely, black line. 
 It definitely has a little hint of sparkle, which makes your eye colour "pop". It's still perfect for daytime wear however, as the sparkle is lovely and subtle. The product is applied by a thin, soft brush- I've never had steady hands, but I find the brush really easy to use. 
 I've even tried using the eyeliner on my waterline, and the product still lasts a good eight hours before I feel I need to touch it up. 
 The product retails for £5.99, which although seems really pricey, it is really good value for money. The last Super eyeliner I purchased lasted over four months and I used it everyday, so definitely good value!
Sorry the product looks dirty! It had a big security sticker stuck to it!

You can purchase this product from Boots stores, however they no longer seem to me selling it via their website!

Barry M Gel Nails ♥

The Barry M Gel Nails seem to be very popular in the bloggingsphere. I've always been a massive fan of Barry M nail products- their polishes dry quickly, having amazing staying power, and come in a wide range of colours. I also love having gel nails, so when I heard that Barry M were bringing out gel polishes, I practically ran to the shops!
Both Boots and Superdrug were offering great deal on the polishes, but I purchased mine from Superdrug, as there were only two colours left in Boots. I bought mine in the colours Watermelon and Pomegranate. I think these are both beautiful colours, and they look even better when applied to the nails. I can't rave about this product enough! Literally, one stroke of the varnish is enough to cover the nail with a good, strong colour. There definitely is no need for two applications. 
The other great thing about these is that they dry so quickly! I think my nails were pretty much dry within two minutes. My nails were chip free for a good three days, and even then the chips were very small and unnoticeable. It does have a gel-like finish to it- my nails looked super shiny and manicured. 
So many people asked me if I'd been to have my nails done, and were shocked that it was just a drugstore nail varnish. I absolutely love this range, and I know I'll be back for more colours.

I bought mine on offer from Superdrug, 2 for £6.00.
