The Konjac Sponge

I went on a shopping trip to Selfridges in Birmingham today and discovered this strange sponge in the beauty hall. This is marketed as an ‘enriching, powerful and effective answer to premium skin cleansing.’

You dampen┬áthe sponge and use it to remove makeup either with or without cleanser. This didn’t remove my mascara however it did remove my other makeup.

The jury’s still out on this one as I haven’t found it any more effective than my usual cleansing cloths, but my opinion may change the more I use this.

My new favourite scent

Jo Malone has been my favourite brand of perfume for a few years now ever since I purchased my first bottle!

I did a blog post a couple of months back about my Jo Malone consultation where they fragrance match you. This week I went to buy my mom a bottle for her birthday and decided to treat myself as well.

peony and blush suede

I picked up the Peony and Blush Suede fragrance for myself. This is a beautiful light floral with a sweet edge to it. It is simply divine.

This perfume lasts all day and is a handy size to pop in your handbag.

I would definitely recommend Jo Malone if you want a great shopping experience and a wonderful long-lasting perfume

Jo Malone consultation

Today me and my mom visited Jo Malone in Selfridges in Birmingham. We had a complimentary hand and arm massage which we received with christmas gifts. They are still giving out these complimentary vouchers when you make any purchase from a Jo Malone stand.

The consultation started with the assistant giving us testers of different scents to work out which one was our favourite. My favourite was Peony and Blush Suede. The assistant then mixed it with other fragrances to make my signature fragrance. She mixed the Peony and Blush Suede with English Pear and Freesia. This combination was deliciously sweet and floral. These perfumes are definitely going to be added to my wish list!

The lovely assistant then gave me an arm massage using the English Pear and Freesia body cream followed by spraying the Peony and Blush Suede cologne. This was brilliant as I had never considered mixing fragrances by layering body cream and cologne.

This was definitely an experience I would recommend as it has given me ideas for fragrance combinations I would never have thought of and that are unique!
