Hi Belles,

So another week of revision has passed and here's what was delivered to my postbox!

St. Ives Fresh Skin Invigorating Apricot Scrub

I love facial products especially natural products, so when I saw that this scrub included 100% natural exfoliants, no parabens etc; I knew it had to be good and it has not proven me wrong so far. I haven't finished the 7 day challenge , as I only just started it today and already I think this product will be a favourite of mine. The apricot scent is amazing , its so soothing and calming; the texture is very grainy which is perfect for a scrub and is sort of clay-like in colour .

As soon as I applied the formula on my face and began to massage it into my skin, I could feel that it was deep cleansing which was perfect for me after wearing full make-up all week. Once I rinsed the formula off, I could see the positive difference it made to my skin as it was more nourish , soft and instantly felt refreshed.

Overall I would rate this product 9/10
  • Retails on average about £3.99 which is the same price as my usual Simple Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub
  • 50% bigger in size compared to Simple Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub 75ml
  • Has a nice scent compared to Simple Kind to Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub 75ml
  • This sample came with a £1 off voucher on any St Ives Face Scrub (150ml tube)

Oral B Pro-Expert All-Around Protection

Although, I was sent a sample of this in February, for some reason I was sent another but I am not going to complain as I like freebies!

I have never tried Oral B before as I tend to stick to my usual toothpastes which are either AquaFresh or Colgate but I have to say I am impressed with this toothpaste, the taste, the colour, the texture, I just love it.

Now some people might not like the clean mint taste but I think it has a slight mixture of sweetness to it, I can't really explain it but its somewhere in the middle of spearmint mixed with a hint of juicy fruit flavoured gum. Oral B have stated that it provides 'All-around Protection'.

The best thing I found was the long lasting smooth clean finish on my teeth from the active clean crystals within the toothpaste. Overall I would give this product 8/10 and would in the future consider purchasing it, however , most likely when it is on offer because it retails on average for £3.49 (75ml size).

Note: Oral B Pro-Expert is available in the following other variants : Whitening & Enamel Shield.

Colgate Sensitive Pro Relief + Whitening

Although, I am yet to try this sample , I look forward to testing it out because I am already a big fan of Colgate.

This new toothpaste features Pro-Argin Technology which is clinically proven by dentists to block exposed channels to the nerve to prevent sensitivity when it is applied directly to each sensitive tooth for 1 minute.

Once I manage to complete the 5 day sensitivity challenge, I will be sure to post a review.

If you have tried any of these products, let me know what you think?!

Peace, Love & Besos
