A little treat from the NEXT beauty range!




A little treat from the NEXT beauty range 🙂


Hello beautifuls, 
I hope you’ve all had a good week after bank holiday, it’s nearly weekend again. Woohoo that when fast! 
So today i thought i would do a little post on the little beauties you can find in Next. It’s a place that you would normally head for to pick up clothes and gorgeous homewear…but OH NO they do some really good cosmetics and perfumes aswell for both males and females. Which are so afforable (bonus!)
You do see these pop up more at Christmas time and mothers days etc but if you keep your eyes open there will be a little section.

I recently recieved a little gift from my boyfriend (aww) its was the shower gel above and a bottle of perfume. He also got me the ‘just pink’ candle but obviously this isn’t cosmetics but it is still gorgeous and smells divine.

Firstly the perfume is 75ml and a flat heart design so doesnt feel bulky at all if you want to put it in your handbag etc. Of course it’s a heart shape so unbelievably cute and something any girl would love on their dressing table. It’s a really sweet fragrance but not to sickly more on the powdery side. It would be perfect for a fresh daytime scent, which is suitable for any age. Well done Next!
Secondly, the HUGE bath/shower gel bottle at a very generous 500ml. This bottle of gorgeousness is going to last you a fair while. I have been waiting for a few weeks to finish the radox one i was currently using and finally at the weekend it was time i could start a new bottle of bubbles for the shower (i love feeling of having a new shower gel, is this just me ha?) Anyhow i love this one already it lathers up so much which is something i really look for. Obviously it’s the same scent as the perfume just on a less concentrated level. However do not fear it still smells divine and with the heat of the shower it just leaves your bathroom smelling like heaven for a good while afterwards, hooray! 
So yes a big thumbs up from me for this. Yes it’s not a exfoliator which some of you like, but we have other products for that, right? It’s the perfect body cleanser and lingers on your skin once dry; leaving you feeling amazing. Also, remember it’s a huge bottle so it’s going to last you ages! Yay! Of course if you also decided to use this in your bath as bubbles you could light the matching candle i mentioned earlier and lay there in a blissful smelling room whilst you relax. Perfect!
Have you used any products from the Next ‘cosmetics range? 
Tell me your faves 🙂
Love and Smiles,

LUSH-cious Lips ;-) …. my saviour product

LUSH  Lip Scrub ~~ Bubblegum

Hi beautifuls, 
firstly welcome to my blog it’s Hannah here from ‘Locked In A Bow’ I will be writing a welcome blog over the next few days so keep your eyes peeled for that. 🙂 However i just wanted to get something up for you to have a read of and this is one of my ultimate essentials. 
Well what can i say about this product utterly amazing, GO BUY IT NOW! 
These Lush scrubs are renowned in their own right now, but coming from a company with such a great reputation this isn’t a suprise. For those who don’t know or who have not yet ventured into the wonderland of Lush they are a company who hand make all of their products using natural and vegetarian ingredients. They also pride themselves on using little or no preservatives and wherever possible being ‘green’ and environmentally friendly with their packaging. 
The packaging displays when products were made and the ingredients used, so you can be assured of ‘freshness’ making it all the better for your skin, you gorgeous people. 🙂
So its all about the flavour and taste with these….ISN’T IT? You’re supposed to eat it, right?
Ok so you cant really help it a little bit always gets on your tongue whilst your rubbing it in and then if you’re a licker you definately get to try it…for me personally im fussy with flavours but this bubblegum one is a really sweet treat….i’m a fruity girl when it comes to flavours 🙂
Saying this, also available in the UK at the moment are the 
Popcorn flavour, which tastes like salted caramel. – containing Coconut and jojoba oils, sugar, sea salt and polenta
Mint Julips flavour tasting of mint choc chip. – containing peppermint, vanilla and tagetes oil.
~~ They claim to clear dead skin and flakiness, leaving your lips smooth and moisturised. I FOR SURE AGREE !!
Preservative Free, yay!
These lip scrubs retail between £5.25 – £5.50 and come in a 25g jar which may not sound a lot but be assured this will last a long time i use mine every day and has lasted me 6months+.  I have just purchased my second jar.  ~~ You can buy this or any other Lush products from various stores around the country and also online at the lush website (<<< just click the link to the left)


How i use it…
After moisturising my face and using primer if i’m having a makeup kinda’ day i will apply the scrub to both lips, leave for about thirty seconds then rub with my fingers (make sure they are clean) till the excess sugar crystals have been removed. I then wipe the excess and apply a lipbalm…any will do as long as its super moistursing i couldn’t possible choose a fave i have so balms that are all amazing 🙂 and thats it by the time i’ve applied makeup or got dressed my lips are perfectly primed ready for THE GREAT BRITISH WEATHER whatever that my bring….i just re-apply lipbalm throughout the day.

If you a dry and cracked lip sufferer like myself please PLEASE P L E A SE give this lip scrub a go it has definately helped me…..but remember keep hydrated and drinking often will help so much aswell. 

So there we have it, i hope you have enjoyed this little post, thankyou so much for reading if you have got this far down..
