The brush was not too noisy and the brushes were not too hard on my teeth, I also really liked the pulse feature so I could clean the back of my teeth properly which at the end felt clean and my mouth refreshed. The charge was great, it lasted ages and I have to say I will be using the Foreo Issa 2 form now on.”

On The Rocks has a mix of different colours such as yellow, berry, light brown and more and using these were get as they were highly pigmented, in fact all of the three palettes eye shadows were highly pigmented.
Next up I tried the Delicious eye shadow palette which I have to say is my favourite as it has a lot of neutral colours in the palette which I found really good if I was just going for a subtle or casual look. Finally there was the Dusk Till Dawn eye shadow palette which had some purples, browns and even had a few eye shadows with glitter/shimmer in them which I loved because who doesn’t love a bit of glitter at Christmas? Overall I can say I would use all three of these palettes again, between the three it had every colour I needed to try lots of different looks and the eye shadow didn’t crease, stayed don all night and was highly pigmented, really great palettes!”

I tried this luxurious set and i have to say I was really surprised how well this set did. I first put some of the Deep sleep night oil onto my arms and some on my legs which didn’t feel greasy and I did begin to feel relaxed.
The scent was lavender but it was not overpowering and smelled lovely. I also tried the deep sleep pillow spray which I only sprayed a little which again didn’t feel like my pillow was wet and I could smell lavender throughout the whole night and again wasn’t overpowering. Between using both of these I have to say my sleeping pattern was so much better and I am using this again and again, loved it!”
