Month 4; Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle cream

Hello Everyone!

This being the third month of my 12 products 12 months of reviews, I've done this one earlier rather than later as I haven't made a blog post in over 2 weeks. I've not been busy or anything interesting, to be honest I just haven't had anything worth talking about up until now.. 

I purchased Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle cream last month and I use a lot more than I thought I would!

The packaging is quite basic, a metal tin and a lid you just pull on and off.

It has the strongest lemon smell out of any product I've ever used. It's quite fresh.

I like to use this when I have no nail polish on, on and around my nails. Then also once I have nail polish on just around my cuticles. It's very moisturizing and not oily at all (that was a concern of mine). I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you have hands that tend to be dry. I also like the fact that it is cruelty free and 100% natural. I'm not usually the type of person who looks for 100% natural ingredients but it's nice to see that every now and again. 

I've been a huge Burt's Bees fan ever since I purchased their lip balm. I was super excited about this purchase and it didn't disappoint! If you're thinking about getting the cuticle cream I say go for it, a little bit goes a long way and you get a lot of product for a reasonable price! 

AUS: $14.95
UK: £5.99
USA: $6 

There isn't much else to say really. I can feel a difference in nails after only a month and I'm so pleased! If you have any opinions on this product let me know in the comments below.
Thank you so much for reading my blog!

Month 3 - Maybelline Color Tattoo

Hello Everyone! 

It's month 3 and I finally purchased Maybelline's Color Tattoo - I could not be more excited to tell you about it!

I decided on Bold Gold as there wasn't much of a selection to choose from and I actually really love gold at the moment, it was a bit of a win-win situation.

My camera decided to not focus on the lid at all - ever. I'm sorry 

I was a little dissappointed with the packaging. It has a similar style to a MAC paintpot but not as good quality. The lid actually broke while it was still in its original plastic. I was so sad when I opened it up and a piece of the lid fell to the floor. 

 Obviously though, this didn't affect the product itself. I was so glad the top didn't break also or it would have dried out and I would have cried. 

It is a very glittery gold and I find myself having to wash my face a few extra times after wearing it just to make sure my face is glitter free. 

As I used my finger it applied quite thick and looks rather scary at first... 

but it blends out so well none of that even matters!

Overall my only complaints are the lid and if not used frequently it seems to be a little on the dry side. Then again that may be due to my broken lid. I have no real issues with it and it is a beautiful product that can be used for a dramatic look or a simple everyday look. Well done Maybelline!
