Win a SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush worth £90

SENSSE Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush and Exfoliator is a rechargeable cleansing and anti ageing device that looks rather stunning in its pretty pink shade and soft silicone shell so I was excited to give it a try.  Once charged is will last for up to 180 times based on a one minute usage which is pretty good going.

Inside the box you get the device, USB charging cable and what I have to say must be one of the cutest storage bags that I’ve ever seen come with a device like this.  With its rose pink sequins, copper coloured zip and fluffy pom-pom, it’s the perfect place to keep your SENSSE product clean and dry when not in use.

Now onto the product itself, this has been a revelation in the cleansing brush market for me.  Not only does it look small and sleek, the smooth silicone outer is silky soft and a joy to hold, fitting perfectly into your hand. The main side features a silicone cleansing brush featuring three different types of textures.  Simply add a few drops of your own cleansing lotion and move in circular motions across your face ensuring your skin is dampened beforehand.  When you switch it on it delivers thousands of pulsations per minute to gently remove dirt oil, makeup residue, and dry dead skin leaving your face feeling clean and rejuvenated.

The back of the SENSSE brush can be used to massage the face after moisturising especially around wrinkles and fine lines.

I found the device exceptionally user-friendly, it’s desirable to look at, it works efficiently being fully waterproof up to 1 metre, it’s a joy to hold fitting so easily and comfortably in your hand and above all gives a really good and pleasurable cleanse and massage to the face.

Some key features include:

  • Built-in Timer – The pulsation pauses every 15 seconds to remind you to move onto a new area.
  • Six different intensity levels to suit all skin types.
  • Long Battery Life – Get 180 uses per charge from internal battery that’s easily charged with included USB cable.
  • Auto Shut-Off – The device will switch off after 3 minutes of inactivity to save your battery.
  • Waterproof – You can use in the bath or shower without damaging the device.

I’ve really enjoyed using this product for a number of reasons including its ease to hold, the feel on your face is ultra soft and effective.  It’s so much gentler than other facial brushes yet just as effective.  The whole unit is ultra compact and comes with multiple speeds, more than other brushes I’ve tried and looks great sat out on your bathroom shelf.  It’s pretty, small and leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and supple.  The massaging tool really does uplift your facial skin pushing the moisturiser deeply in to the pores to really boost healthy, supple and youthful looking skin.

Don’t just take my word for it, why not try one for yourself!

Enjoying musicals with #NewYearNewYou

If ever I get of me time I like to sit down and chill out, either with a favourite tv programme or a good film.  As much as I enjoy a good musical I don’t tend to sit and watch them at home but this year I’m challenging myself to try something different and in this case I’m going to spend the next few weeks watching the following musical DVD’s.  It may mean chucking the husband out – but he works more weekends than not anyway so I intend on getting the kids to bed early and having an evening to myself, or maybe with one or two female friends round to enjoy a proper classical musical film with a feel good factor that we can enjoy and sing along to!

With a great range of musicals to enjoy I can’t wait to sit and watch the following:

  • Jersey Boys
  • Singing in the Rain
  • Rock of Ages
  • Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
  • High Society

All the above DVD’s are available to purchase from Amazon HERE.

I’m going to plan one evening a week were I can have the front room to myself or with friends and totally enjoy one of these dvd’s.  It’ll be nice for a bit of adult time to watch a dvd of my choice (it’s normally kids ones!) and really give myself some of that time back I had before children.  I think just making a little effort each week to enjoy myself and relax will be great and getting into musical mode will surely get me planning a trip to the theatre later this year! Well why not? #NewYearNewYou

Have you got any challenges for the new years?  What do you plan to do differently?

If you love and enjoy musicals then I have an opportunity for you to win all of the above DVD’s.  Just follow me on twitter and RT my pinned tweet below.  You have until midnight on Sunday 22nd January to enter upon which time a winner will be selected at random.  Good luck!

Giveaway terms & conditions:

Ends midnight 22/01/17
One RT per person

UK only
Prize consists of all dvd’s pictured above and will be sent out by pr company upon receipt of winners address details within 28 days.

WILF Books Subscription – Review & Win

WILF Books are a monthly subscription service which sends children a box of books (minimum of three) to enjoy, love and encourage their reading skills with.  The box can be tailored to your child’s age and tastes, so if there are any themes they don’t like you can excluded them.  The books can be fiction or non-fiction and are uniquely chosen for each child.

wp_20161124_12_36_42_pro The books come well presented and individually wrapped up with a cute note and sticker.  This all adds to the excitement when the child opens it up and they are eager to see what books are inside.  Also included is a freepost envelope where you can return any books that have been read or any from your child’s own collection that they no longer want.  As long as they are in good condition they will be recycled in other boxes so that more children can get enjoyment from them. The more you do this, the more likely that extra books will be included in your future boxes.

We received three books all well suited to my 8yr old Miss M:

  • Atticus Claw Goes Ashore – Jennifer Gray
  • Darcy Burdock – Laura Dockrill
  • Gilbert the Great – Jane Clarke & Charles Fuge

Miss M was happy with all of her books and soon got down to reading them at bedtime.  They are all books she could enjoy and read at her leisure and she really enjoyed receiving the bundle of books. The idea of a subscription is a great idea for a gift for a child and something they can look forward to each month.

The box is great quality, the perfect place to store your watch.  The lid is magnetic and there is a pull out drawer at the bottom.

The men’s watch itself is amazing.  As I said the pictures just don’t do it justice and in real life it is really beautiful.  Made with ebony wood and copper ring inside the face, this is fresh, modern, stylish and a timepiece that people will admire.  What I also love is that the back is glass so you can see through to the mechanism inside.

jord-3Jord watches are of premium quality and really look and feel amazing.  There are various models to choose from in a range of colours of wood in both male, female and unisex styles.
