Review | April empties / favourites

It's a nice coincidence that my April Empties were also my April Favourites!

The Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails spray retails for £3.05 at Superdrug. In direct contrast to what I'm about to say it seems the one person who has reviewed it on the Superdrug website didn't like it at all! I however, love it! It's simple to use - just spray it on your nails after letting them air dry for 60 seconds or so. Yes, it does leave your cuticles and fingers a little greasy but you just have to wash your hands, which, if you use cold water, helps to set the polish even more. I used to use Avon setting spray which just didn't work at all. This does. Would I buy it again? I already have!

NIPANDFAB NIP+FAB ELEGANT TOUCH RAPID DRY NO7 LIPSTICK CARAMEL KISS

This No7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick in Caramel Kiss gives lips a sheer hint of colour, but it can be built up easily by blotting and reapplying. It melts onto the lips like a balm and makes them feel really soothed. I love this entire range and can't wait to invest in some more colours. This lipstick only lasted 8 weeks or so because I wore it so much! I've got lipsticks hanging around from when I still lived with my parents (I moved out in 2005...) which shows how much use this got. It costs £9.25 from Boots. Would I buy it again? Absolutely!

I reviewed the Nip + Fab Energy Boost Body Wash earlier in the week and here is another product from them that I really loved in April. It's the Nip + Fab Glycolic Scrub Fix which contains 3% glycolic acid and salicylic acids to refine, brighten and renew. The gritty particles (which I hear is a new technical term, hehe!) are quite large and plentiful so I really feel like it's cleansing deep down and removing gunk (yum!) from my pores. It supposedly has a grapefruit scent but I think my tube didn't get that memo! It's £9.95 but I stocked up recently when Sainsbury's had 1/3 off the entire range. Would I buy it again? Yup, I already have!

    1. I really rate their Viper Venom Eye Fix - the rollerball is really cooling and especially nice to use in the morning! :)

  3. Wow, love that your favorites are also your empties but it makes compete sense! I do like nail dry spays but I've never tried the elegant touch one before. Nip & Fab is a brand I really want to try more of and getting through a lipstick in 8 weeks is impressive!

    1. I've just bought another can of it because I paint my nails about 4 or 5 times a week so I go through it like there's no tomorrow!
