Summer is apparently on the way, which for me means way more time outdoors. My skin isn’t fabulous at the best of times, so the change of season brings a slight routine change. Repairing type moisturiser at bed time, my usual teenager-type face scrub in the morning shower, and I apply a thin layer of lotion to my face and neck with sunscreen in as I leave the house. I still get “sunface” but hey, at least I tried. Get your skin gorgeous for summer by winning yourself a Magnitone!
In the Julie’s Notebook household we’ve all been trying out the Rock face for men range. It was meant to be just my eldest son Dee trying out the range, but we have all been trying them out. Even Jen likes the body spray and shower gel. I will start by writing about products I have used myself, yes yes, I know I am not a man. One thing I will say first, is they all smell the same, which might seem a little dull, but it is actually brilliant – none of the products clash, they all match brilliantly. Think about of grooming products, some of the scents wouldn’t match so well like maybe white musk and chocolate or cucumber with coconut. Eeew!
A little while ago I was asked to review Pearl Drops instant white 4D whitening toothpaste. I was happy to give it a go as I hate my teeth, and am less than keen on dentists. The packet has one of those colour gauges and states you can change by two shades in just one week. I held the box to my teeth but decided none of these shades were my colour. Being an ex hairdresser I am used to recognising small changes in tone or colour depth.
Last night I read something and I just have to reply! GhostWriterMummy – Such Great Heights Susanne, aka GhostWriterMummy was part of Team Matilda Mae and skydived with me at the weekend. When she landed she spoke of a rainbow, a sign, something perfect in the sky. I hadn’t seen a rainbow, I felt Suz was really lucky, I wished I had seen a rainbow! But to me a rainbow is an arch, it wasn’t until I read her post about it that I realised we had seen the same. After my panic attack in “free fall” we were floating down in the parachute. Still just above the clouds, the clouds seemed like the floor at this point, a carpet of pure white cotton candy.
