Stylpro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Cracker

This Christmas you can make the life of every Makeup Artist, Beauty Blogger and Make up Lover much easier, less of a chore and a bit more fun with the Stylpro Makeup Brush Cleanser and Cracker, something I didn't know I needed until I used it and my mind was blown!

Take the chore out of cleaning your makeup brushes with the StylPro Original Make Up Brush Cleaner and Dryer, a revolutionary brush cleaning device that cleans and dries your makeup brushes in 30 seconds.
What I love about this, is not just how amazingly well my brushes are cleaned, or how easy it is to use, but just how inexpensive it is!  
Stylpro Makeup Brush Cleaner and Cracker
If you have a alot of makeup brushes, let's face it, we all do and I am sure we are all guilty of just grabbing a new brush rather than clean one or perhaps even worse, just continuing to use one that is in need of a clean *shudders*.  At Boots right now, you can grab this StylPro Cracker (£8.99) which contains a 150ml bottle of the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleanser inside.
Stylpro Cracker
Described as being a unique and deep cleansing formula that will cut through stubborn cosmetics whilst at the same time nourish and gently condition your makeup brush bristles, it uses Wheatgerm, Grapeseed and Argan oils which leave them, once dry, feeling silky, smooth and protected.  I am quite a cynic when it comes to someone telling me that their product is better than any other you have ever tried, well with this I have had to eat my own words because it is incredible.  I have got foundation brushes with stained bristles and now, having used this cleanser with the StylPro Brush Cleaner, I now have two foundation brushes which look and feel like new.

So the Stylpro Brush Cleaner (£29.99) comes with everything you need in the set, there is no extras that you need to purchase to make it work. Inside the box, there are 8 Flexible Silicone Collars which are designed to fit all standard style natural/synthetic makeup brushes (whilst not being suitable for double ended or flat brushes). There is also the Tritan bowl which is not only unbreakable but is also dishwasher safe, the Stylpro Device and a few Makeup Brush Cleanser Sachets to get things started.

I remember my very first blog event and was told that we should be cleaning our makeup brushes once a week, a task I always dread because it took forever, I had to leave my brushes dangling over the sink to dry which could take a few hours to overnight and I was always worried my brushes were still not as clean as I wanted them to be. So the Stylpro Brush Cleaner, which is the invention from Apprentice winner Tom Pellereau, uses what is referred as a centrifugal spin technology so that brushes are literally ready to re-use immediately, it literally takes around 30 seconds to clean each brush and when I say clean, I mean wash it and dry it - a miracle for makeup brush cleaning.

Now I have the StylPro Makeup Brush Cleaner and a back up of brush cleansing liquid, makeup brush washing is no longer a chore and something I actually don't mind doing because it is just so quick!  A perfect gift for any lover of makeup and one which doesb't cost the earth too!

Nude Jewellery - Rose Quartz Gemstone Vanilla Link Pendant

I love buying pieces of jewellery as gifts, whether it is a charm for a bracelet, some earrings or even something more lavish like a watch that the mister has had his eye on. I love to receive jewellery as a gift because I think it is one of those items that someone has to have put some thought into purchasing for you, there must be a reason it caught their eye and made them think of you. New to my collection is this stunning Rose Quartz Vanilla Link Pendant from Nude Jewellery and it is just absolutely stunning, I haven't taken it off since it arrived.
Nude Jewellery Presentation Box

If you have never come across them before, Nude Jewellery is a UK based jewellers who handmake all of their pieces, something they are incredibly and should rightly be, proud of.  They launched in 2001 and the main aim of Nude Jewellery was to provide its customers with nothing but the best in independent design jewellery and to do that, the collections are designed by award-winning jewellery designer Nikki Galloway and her in-house jewellers, and many of the Nude Jewellery pieces are only available on their website and not anywhere else.  What I love about the website is that everything is so clearly laid out and there is just so much to see, as well as having the option to create your own bespoke design, which I really like the idea of.

I was very kindly sent the Nude Jewellery Rose Quartz Gemstone Vanilla Link Pendant (£95) and it is just absolutely stunning, definitely a wow moment when I opened the box that is for sure.

The Nude Jewellery Rose Quartz Gemstone Vanilla Link Pendant is a delicate handmade, hand textured hammered link hanging from a sleek silver snake chain embellished with a beautiful rough cut pale pink rose quartz gemstone which is roughly 25mm in length. The necklace chain is available in three different chain lengths; 16″, 18″ and 20" and my necklace sits on an 18" chain and is just the perfect length for how I like my necklaces to sit and it has a clasp closure which is easy to open and close.

I have put the Rose Quartz gemstone against the red berries of my Christmas decoration so that you can see just how beautifully pink the Rose Quartz gemstone is and I love that it is such a delicate colour.  I love reading about gemstones and it seems Rose Quartz is no ordinary gemstone if you believe or are interested in the healing powers of crystals, then you might be aware that the Rose Quartz is often referred to as 'The Love Stone' and this is because it sends off strong vibrations of love, happiness, warmth, and emotional health. It is also said to help with lowering stress and tension in the heart and that Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, and allows the healing of heart issues, to name just a few of the healing powers.

I absolutely love this pendant, it is just so beautiful and one I will get a lot of wear out of. It is the type of pendant that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. You can check out the rest of the unique Nude Jewellery designs here and I would love to know if anything catches your attention!

Being by Sanctuary Spa

Being by Sanctuary Spa is the little sister of the well known Sanctuary Spa range. It describes itself as follows: We are Being, we are ballsy beauty bottled! From punchy fragrance mists, washbags & shower gels to badass scrubs that even TLC can’t deny, we’re pure, perplexing deliciousness in every flavour you like. Our line-up of five scents will grab your attention, raise an eyebrow and leave your skin smelling and feeling fresh AF.  This Christmas, there is a whole host of fun gifts on offer and I am sharing some of my favourites.
Being by Sanctuary Spa Christmas Gift Sets
I absolutely love bath bombs in my bath, the joy of watching they fizz around the tub never gets old and these Salted Caramel & Macadamia Bon Bombs are just divine.  The packet contains 12 mini bath bombs and depending on your preference you can add more than one to your tub, the more you add the sweeter and stronger the scent and ultimately more fizzing. 
Being by Sanctuary Spa Salted Caramel & Macademia Bon Bombs
Once the bath bombs have finished fizzing, you can lie back and enjoy the sweet scent, which makes me hungry every single time I've used them.  These Bath Bombs are a lot of fun and are priced at just £12 (currently on offer for £9 in Boots) making them a great stocking filler.

Up next we have the Being by Sanctuary Spa Donut Disturb Cookie Jar Gift Set. This set contains a 50ml bottle of Bubble Bath 50ml, a Face Mask, a Body Puff and most fun of all an Inflatable Drinks Holder in the shape of a donut!

This set is priced around £15 and again, as soon as you remove the lid from what reminds me of a penny sweet jar, the scent of caramel is just so inviting.  The bubble bath creates copious amounts of salted caramel scented bubbles and the facemask, which I love, smells good enough to eat.

The final gift set within my little trio is called 'I Don't Give a Frappe' which made me chuckle when I saw it. Packaged inside a drink cup with accompanying straw you will find a Body Wash 50ml, Body Lotion 75ml, Body Mist 50ml and the Body Puff.
Being by Sanctuary Spa - I don't give a Frappe
The scent for these products is fierce Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean and again, the scent is just amazing, this is my favourite so far, it is sweet without being too sickly and it is a scent which lingers so well on the skin. Costs just £15 but is on offer at Boots for just £11.75.

You can find all three of these gift sets HERE at Boots and also now via FeelUnique HERE and there literally is something for every budget, maybe even a treat for yourself!
