Shavata Totally Tropical Tweezer Collection

Shavata has created a collection of summer inspired slanted tweezers that will help brows stay "beach ready" between appointments.  

What's that I hear you say?  It's a bit late for summer!  What summer!  Well, I agree that it is a bit late for summer (what little sun we did have) but it's never to late to brighten up your day with a pair of pretty tweezers.  And pretty is what these tweezers most definitely are.

And not just pretty but they are very sturdy and work really well.  Slanted tweezers are definitely best for use on eyebrows.  Most professionals would agree with that I'm sure.  They are also great for poking out ingrowing hairs on other areas of your body (but that's a whole different story).

They have a wider grip area and are extremely comfortable to hold and work with.  They feel like great quality tweezers and won't break the bank.

They are available from QVC in the UK and come in a variety of different designs ranging from £9.95-£14.90.  The Kiwi Cocktail and Cupcakes ones that I have are only £9.95.

These were sent to me for review purposes.  I would purchase these myself although I won't need to in the near future as I have these ones.

Lanolips Lip Ointment Review

Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15 is a new lip treatment from Australia.

It contains over 60% Ultra-Pure Medical Grade Lanolin.  It's inspiration came from a humble sheep farm in South Australia where creator Kirsten Carriol spent her childhood. Lanolin is a substance taken from freshly shorn sheeps wool and is a great naturally occurring moisturiser.  Beware though as some people are allergic to Lanolin and if that's the case then don't even try this.  However, if you are not allergic to Lanolin then this is a totally amazing lip product.

It comes in a tube like a lip gloss.  It contains 12.5g and comes in 5 colours.  The colour that I have is Dark Honey which is described as a "natural sweet lip glow".

Here it is on my lips.  It does look very natural and gives a lovely shine.  Perfect for every day use.  Great in summer to protect your lips from the sun and also great in winter to keep them well moisturised.

The only complaint I have is the actual applicator (or lack of one).  I think this product would benefit from a slanted end so that it could be applied straight to the lips.  In it's present form it can be applied straight to the lips but I find it difficult to spread across my lips with it.  I find it much easier to squeeze some out onto my finger and apply to my lips that way.  Maybe it's just me!!

Lanolips Lip Ointment with Colour SPF 15 is available from Boots stores nationwide and also from Victoria Health

This item was sent to me for review but it is definitely something I would buy myself.  Especially as it's available in Boots.
