Fabulous face wash by JooMo


I requested a sample of face wash from a company called JooMo, and promised I would review it for them. I usually use Clinique skin care, but as this new product from JooMo was 100% natural, I thought I'd give it a go. 
I must admit, I'm pretty useless when it comes to keeping up with my skin care regime. Most of the time I take my makeup off with a remover wipe and fail to cleanse and moisturise afterwards...tut tut! I'm not sure whether this is pure laziness or whether the products I'm currently using bore me! Either way, something has to give because I'm not getting any younger and neither is my skin! 
On the day that my sample arrived, I decided to take a note of how I felt about the packaging of the product, as this is often what first attracts me to cosmetic items.
Here is the sample I was sent (I say sample but this looks pretty much full sized to me)

I noted that the design was quirky, original, eye catching, young and vibrant, without being tacky looking. The shape of the face wash was the usual shape that I would associate with a skin care product, and this helped to keep the product in the familiar. 
I then turned the product over to read the description and the ingredients, which ensured me that the wash was 100% natural. Thumbs up from me for that. 
Next, I opened the lid and discovered the most scrummy smell of cinnamon, honey and orange! It instantly reminded me of Christmas, cinnamon buns and spiced tea! Yum! After that I couldn't wait to try it! 
I squeezed a blob of the runny face wash into the palm of my hand, added a little luke warm water, and applied it to my face. It didn't foam up like a normal wash would, however it felt silky and smooth on my face, almost gentle you might say. I then rinsed my face clean and patted it dry.
And guess what...the gorgeous cinnamon scent kept cropping up all day! I kept getting a strong whiff of spice everywhere I went and it took me a while to realise it was my face!!! My skin felt soft and smooth all day too! 
I love this new natural face wash! It smells divine, it looks great, and it's gentle on sensitive skin..perfect!

Want longer lashes?

Hi guys!

I have tried, tested, and reviewed an amazing mascara, that is guaranteed to give you longer, fuller lashes! Yes..guaranteed!!! How? Well, providing you curl them first slightly, and apply a few layers of the mascara (wiggling the brush up from the lash root to ensure full coverage) your lashes will look wonderfully thick and long. 

Jelly Pong Pong fairy lashes mascara is the best by far! Check out the curved wand that fits the shape of your eyes perfectly! 

What struck me most about this mascara, was the texture of it. It appears normal, like any other standard mascara, but when it dries it forms more of a plastic like structure, which elongates the lashes effectively and prevents smudging under and above the lash lines. 

It is also really easy to remove and comes off the lashes looking like little plastic fake eyelashes..weird!

So, here are my natural no make up eyes:

And here are my eyes after an application of Jelly Pong Pong Mascara:

Amazing or what!!!!!!!! If I do say so myself, they look so good! 
To create this look I curled my eyelashes using my Elite curlers. I then applied a coat of the mascara to the top of my upper lashes, wiggling from the root, and then did the same on the underside of my upper lashes, fanning them out at the same time. I then applied a coat to the lower lashes, pushing the ones near the inner corner of my eye out towards my nose, and the ones near the outer corner of my eye towards my ear (this makes the lashes look fanned out and the eyes bigger). Next, I applied another coat to the upper lashes whilst they were still tacky to avoid clumping, and did the same again on the lower lashes. I finished the look with a slick of clear mascara. Ta da! 

You can buy this mascara from RRP £15.00 
I also found it available on the Asos website for £10!!! 
Well worth the money I'd say!

Hi everyone,

I've recently been nominated for the Liebster Award by the amazing Hanan over at and I'm very excited about it. The award is given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and helps them to promote their blog within the blogging great! 
To be in the running to receive the award, the nominees must adhere to the following rules:

So, I have linked this post back to my nominator Hanan (Don't you just love her name!!!) , and now to answer her 11 chosen questions! Here goes!

  • What is in your makeup bag right now? My make up bag is full of Rimmel products: A black kohl eye liner, Glam eyes mascara in black, 25 hour lasting foundation in 100 ivory and a concealer stick!  I love how inexpensive they are for the quality they produce. I also have 2 different blushes by bourjois, and some primer by No.7, oh and some Elite  eyelash curlers!
  • Favourite high end and budget make-up? My favourite high end make up is bobby brown and my favourite budget make up is MUA.

  • If you were put on an island what 3 things would you take with you? I would take some facial cleansing wipes, my tooth brush and a pack of hair bobbles!
  • Who is your favourite blogger / Youtuber? I love Hollie Wakeham on YouTube, she is really down to earth, her videos are detailed and the results are achievable. 
  • What has helped you on your Blogging journey? I followed many different blogs before I began writing so that I could get a feel for various writing styles, and then went with what I felt comfortable. This helped me to get into the swing of blogging.
  • What is your favourite sweet? I love a good old werther's original!!!
  • What is your favourite thing about yourself? My long eyelashes! 
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Who knows, but I'd like to think I will have a family! 
  • High heels or Flats? Heels all the way when I go out, I'm 5ft 1 so they are necessary! I do however opt for casual flats when I'm generally out and about during the day!
