YouTube Limelight: Blendtec

Each month I feature one of my favourite YouTube channels, sharing the little things I like about them & of course the video I like best. This month is Blendtec.

Blendtec became popular with the phrase will it blend?, using the blender to attempt to blend anything from Marbles to iPhones to pool noodles. The very first video was uploaded to the channel 10 years ago, posing the question Will it Blend – Marbles.

Since the success of the Will it Blend series, they have also uploaded a number of recipes, the Cookie Butter looks delicious!

The Parcel: Autumn 2017

Apologies, I have been so slack with this edition. I forgot to take a photo of the outside packaging before I disposed of it. I took way too long to try everything. Then I took even longer to sit down to write about it.

FACE

Burt's Bees - Lip Crayon

Burt’s Bees – Lip Crayon 100% Natural

I do quite like the few Burts Bees products I have tried & this is no exception. The colour is a good match for me, it looks quite natural. The only let down is it smell quite waxy, like a crayon.

Biore - Baking Soda Scrub

Biore – Baking Soda Scrub

This looks interesting & fun to use. The packaging is fun & easy to use. It smells quite zingy but leaves a bit of a film on your hands & face for a moment. Have you ever hand washed something & your hands feel slimy afterward? It feels like that but it goes away quickly.

Elizabeth Arden - Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet

Elizabeth Arden – Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet

I think there is way too much liquid to n these caplets. Even after slathering it over my neck & décolletage

La Roche-Posey - Micellar Water Ultra For Reactive Skin

La Roche-Posey – Micellar Water Ultra For Reactive Skin

Another micellar water. I’m still using the Nivea one from the winter parcel! I did give this one a try. It seems to work just as good as the other brands I’ve tried. Although I don’t like the wide opening for the top, too much product comes out.

Bioderma - Sebum Pore Refiner

Bioderma – Sebum Pore Refiner

I love how smooth this makes my face feel. If airbrushed had a * this would be it. My face is generally smoother, especially across the larger surface area of my cheeks.

Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Moisture Rich Night Cream

Palmer’s – Cocoa Butter Moisture Rich Night Cream
I’ve sampled this product before & quite like it. It’s a thick, rich cream that smells the same as the other Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products. I think it’s a great cream for intense overnight repair of dry skin.

HAIR

John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Shampoo & Conditioner

John Frieda – Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Shampoo & Conditioner

This product surprised me because from what I can tell, everyone gets the same products in their Parcel. But not everyone that receives the Parcel is not blonde, let alone bottle blonde.

BODY

Jergens- Hydrating Coconut Lotion

Jergens- Hydrating Coconut Lotion

I’ve appreciated each Jergens product that I’ve tried& this one is no different. Later in the day, after applying it in the morning, I got the occasional waft of tropical that takes me a while to place. After a few days, I realized that it was this moisturizer.

Estée Lauder - Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent

Estée Lauder – Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent

Normally when I get perfume in samples boxes I pass them on to my mum as most don’t appeal to me. If I were to describe this to someone I’d say it’s summer, tropical & slightly floral.

YouTube Limelight: Simply Nailogical

Each month I feature one of my favourite YouTube channels, sharing the little things I like about them & of course the video I like best. This month is Simply Nailogical.

I originally came across Cristine’s channel when the “100 layers” videos were doing the rounds. You wouldn’t think 100 layers of nail polish could look so creepy!

I have had success using the water marble technique on my nails, although as you can see from the video it gets pretty messy. I think they got the best results with the shoes. I wonder if how long it would last or if it would peel off once its dry.
