My Makeup Routine

My makeup routine

Today, I’ll be discussing my current makeup routine… If you don’t care, and this isn’t your thing – just skip past!

Read my previous post here.

If the constant lockdowns have been good for anything, it’s strengthening my makeup game. Do you know how long I’ve spent practicing!?

Let’s get into my makeup routine…

I begin each application by cleansing and toning, for this I use Kiehl’s. This brand actually cured my teenage acne. It will forever hold a special, skincare-shaped space in my heart!

Serum and moisturiser? I use The Body Shop’s Vitamin C range. The serum doubles up as a primer, which I love. This range really wakes me up in the morning!

Eye-makeup? I used a mixture of Too Faced’s Natural Eyes pallet and Iconic London’s Nice To Naughty pallet. I started with the smoky black eyeshadow on my eyebrows, buffing it in with a spoolie – and then went on to create a ombré gold/pink glitter tone on my eyelid. For mascara, I used Benefit’s They’re Real. I applied the eyeshadows with the eyeshadow applicator.

Face? I started with Bourjois’ Healthy Mix concealer and set it all with Laura Mercier’s loose powder. I then went in with Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Contour Wand on the cheekbones, before applying the Cloud Paint by Glossier and Cover FX’s Custom Enhancer Drops to highlight. All of this was applied with a beauty blender, I don’t use brushes.

Here, I was closing my eyes because: God’s Grace is blinding

Lips? Christian Dior’s Diorific lipstick.

Finally, I finished the look off with MAC’s shimmery Prep & Prime spray ‘cause everything that glitters is gold!

[I mainly wrote this so I can drop the word ‘spoolie’ in there, I love it so much]

Before you *don’t* ask, nope this isn’t sponsored, I actually spent my life-savings on all products mentioned… I figured it’s cheaper to look a strong 7 out of 10 than it is to afford a mortgage in the current climate! Tell me I’m wrong?! Plus, all the products featured are long-lasting.

If you’ve successfully made it to the end of this post without falling asleep, congratulations you’ve won absolutely nothing! C’mon, guys – I’m not Ellen de Generes, I don’t have six figure $ cheques coming out my ears…

… or do I? 🤔😂

Anyway, thanks for reading. Bye! ✨

Lush Cosmetics: Bath Bomb Haul

Lush Cosmetics

In a change to the usual travel posts, I’ve decided to ‘explore’ some of Lush Cosmetics’ new Mother’s Day and Easter bath bombs, along with much older favourites!

Lush Cosmetics

Atom Heart Mother

Let’s start with a bath bomb from the Mother’s Day line, specifically the one that looks like the ‘Toy Story’ wallpaper… ‘Atom Heart Mother’.

As a lover of all things citrus, this one is right up my street! Filled with bergamot, neroli and Brazilian orange oils, this one smells delightful!

In terms of its appearance, I loved the intricate detailing of the clouds around the blue. I was surprised to see the water turn pink though, but I’m guessing that’s to make it look more rosey (as rose absolute is another ingredient).

Lush Cosmetics

Mother of Pearl

This is my favourite from this haul because it reminds me of my mum. If my mum could be a bathbomb, she’d be ‘Mother of Pearl’.

The scent of this one is pure jasmine / gardenia, both of which are my mum’s top two flowers. Surprisingly, no jasmine or gardenia was used in the making of this… Instead, it featured ylang ylang oil, vanilla absolute, illipe butter, and organic rose hip oil.

Off-white, covered in glitter and pearl-like in appearance, this bath-bomb made the water milky.

Lush Cosmetics

Flamingo Egg

Now for my Easter selection… ‘The Flamingo Egg’ is the one I was most excited about to begin with, then I became sceptical after reading the mixed reviews on the website (and as ever, I clicked ‘pay securely’ before checking!)

Described as “candy” scented, I can’t say it was. Although the fragrance was strong, I am struggling to describe it apart from using words like ‘chemical soap’. Maybe I had a bad batch?

In terms of the ingredients, this one was apparently filled with vetivert oil, coarse sea salt, and Sicilian lemon oil. I’m sure you’ll agree, this is by far the craziest combination… I feel like Lush scientists went mad while making this one in their soap laboratory.

The positives about Lush Cosmetics’ Flamingo Egg bath bomb are: the aesthetic – its geode effect, and the way it turned the water pastel bluey teal before gradually settled at a purple once the pink (top half) got dissolved.

I just really didn’t like the smell, nor the ingredients overall (apart from the Sicilian orange, ofc). Weirdly, I later found out that ‘vetivert’ is used in masculine fragrances?!I’ll never understand why Lush Cosmetics decided to include this into a bath-bomb with a predominately female demographic.

A lot of reviews mentioned that this bath bomb turned the reviewers’ light hair pink, I can’t comment on that as I’m brunette… Others said it left their skin looking pink, I didn’t notice this either.

Lush Cosmetics

The Owl and the Pussycat

This is a limited edition 3-in-1, inspired by the famous poemThe Owl and the Pussycat’. Say ‘hello’ to the cute blue cat, yellow owl and green boat… As far as Lush Cosmetics colour combinations go, this is one of the wildest.

Ingredients of this bath bomb include: gardenia extract, ‘wobble wobble’ (also known as: carrageenan extract) which made me laugh, agar agar and ‘floating on pea pods’. As made up as most of these ingredients sound, they’re actually real!

This one is super cute, it reminds me of ‘Love Boat’ – which is my all time favourite Valentine’s Day bath bomb, I’d say. Back to the bath bomb at hand, it turned my bath water mint green.

Lush Cosmetics

Dragon’s Egg

Speaking of Lush Cosmetics’ Easter range, this is the perfect time to reveal my favourite bath bomb of theirs that ever existed, ‘Dragon’s Egg’.

This one needs no introduction, it’s unarguably the best citrussy bath bomb out there! Ingredients include lemon oil, bergamot oil, jasmine absolute, and popping candy.

Bizarrely, I actually fell asleep in the bath – even though its scent is one of the most intense. I love the smooth & silkiness of my skin post-bath, from rubbing the multi-colour creamy leftover floaty bits into my skin.

Lush Cosmetics went all-out with this one, there’s even a yolk-y coloured centre, I just love it – it’s like a non-edible white chocolate Cadbury’s creme egg.

Lush Cosmetics

Deep Sleep

Deep Sleep’ is a bath bomb that I’ve reviewed on here before, prior to wiping all my old posts. I’m super gutted that it had to go, but as I’ve explained previously – I recently switched to an SEO plan, and most of my 64 posts weren’t SEO’d. The length of time it’d take to SEO them all?! Let’s just say it felt like I’d be there until I retire…

Ingredients of this bath bomb include lavender flowers, together with lavender and neroli oils. This is a basket staple of mine because I often get insomnia, so the soothing lavender chills me out before bed.

The lavender flowers are uniquely wrapped in the type of material which makes tote bags, and secured in place with a purple thick paper ribbon.

Before you ask, yes – Prince’s ‘Purple Rainwas playing on loop, as I lay in the purple water.

What’s next on my Lush Cosmetics list? ‘Melusine’, ‘The Sleeping Giant’, ‘Follow the Rabbit’ and ‘Rose Gold’.

Etsy – Local Businesses: FairyMoonCandlesUK

Following on from my newly written local businesses post, I’d like to re-post my favourite local business: FairyMoonCandlesUK.

(I have re-branded my blog, so I wanted to re-write my favourite posts to reflect that)

Pandora’s FairyMoonCandlesUK is a small Mancunian business which I discovered on Etsy.

Head Fairy, Pandora, makes beautiful handcrafted soy wax candles that are vegan and eco-friendly.

Before I delve deeper, I want to start by saying that FairyMoonCandlesUK combines everything I love in a candle: floral, healing crystals and fragrance.

ccc

GUARDIAN ANGEL CANDLE

The ‘Guardian Angel’ candle is a refreshing citrus-scented candle…

I love everything about it, from the fragrance, scattered rose petals and sequins to the citrine & clear Quartz centrepieces. Simply sublime!

If lemon isn’t your thing, there are other varieties that are just as stunning. All types can be found here.

In terms of packaging, the candle arrived very well wrapped in tissue paper, and tied together securely with a neat bow.

It’s fair to mention that I gifted this candle to my boyfriend’s mum last Christmas, he relayed her message: “she absolutely loves it! Super lemony, gorgeous too, thanks!

My mum also gifted a couple to her friends, this candle, to which their response was: “how unique! It’s very authentic.” / “it’s lovely, thank you! The stones in there are a great touch.” / “it goes perfectly with the decor [the recipient owns a beauty salon]”

‘ENCHANTED’ CANDLE

Moving onto ‘Enchanted’ (pictured at the top), this is one of FairyMoonCandlesUK’s bestsellers!

This candle is lavender scented, and features a rose Quartz centrepiece. For those of you who don’t know, rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional (and universal) love.

The lavender is very fragrant but soothing all the same. Its relaxing properties make it easy to see why it’s such a bestseller.

The presentation and packaging of ‘Enchanted’ was identical to that of ‘Guardian Angel’. It arrived in a metal pot with a see-through plastic lid showcasing the stunning candle in all its glory.

Similarly to ‘Guardian Angel’, the silver sequins, mini raw clear quartz pieces and dried rose petals were a standard – this time, paired with a light dusting of lavender and a rose quartz statement piece.

Next on my list is FairyMoonCandleUK’s Moonlight candle (including Moonstone), followed by Sweet Dreams (featuring Amethyst).

It would be a dream to partner with FairyMoonCandles on scents & crystal combination ideas of my own.

Pandora, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart for bringing joy to so many. Your candles and concepts are amazing!

Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation by Loren Ridinger

motives foundation

If you’re looking for a mineral foundation that’s liquid but dries matte, Motives Liquid Powder foundation by Loren Ridinger might just be the one for you!

I’m very picky with foundations, I buy a lot of them but hardly ever stick to any… 🙈

My favourite foundation for the longest time was Cargo Cosmetics’ HD Picture Perfect. However, now that I have Motives, I don’t look back…

motives foundation

Tell me more about the Motives Cosmetics brand

Motives Cosmetics was founded in 2008 by Loren Ridinger, a multi-faceted entrepreneur and influential figure for women empowerment.

Owned by parent company, Market America, Motives Cosmetics is a luxury cosmetics brand created with everyone, on any budget, in mind.

Loren’s purpose was to create high-quality, custom-formulated cosmetics that enhance true beauty while helping to nourish the skin.

If you want a comparison: Motives is sort of like Avon in a sense that you can become a brand representative. But, also Rodial (which has an affordable skincare and cosmetics sister company called ‘Nip + Fab’)

motives foundation

My favourite thing about the Motives foundation

There are a lot of things that I like about this foundation…

🌟 The fact that it’s made of minerals, is natural and doesn’t irritate my skin.

🌟 The way it sits (& feels) on my skin…

🌟 The look of it! It’s not cakey and doesn’t look like I’m wearing a mask.

🌟 I’m also obsessed with how although it dries matte, a natural glow still shines through.

🌟 The fact that it has SPF 15 in it… There’s literally no reason for to me to apply sunscreen separately!

motives foundation

The best way to wear the Motives foundation

I’d start by cleansing, moisturising and then rubbing a primer into your skin before applying this foundation.

When applying, I prefer using a brush, but you’re welcome to use a beauty-blender or hands. If you use a brush too, remember to clean it regularly!

In terms of primer, I’d recommend the Motives one. It’s nice and silicone-y, giving your foundation a smooth base – literally gliding on. Honestly, these two products go together like a match made in heaven!

My final step would be applying a setting spray, again I went with Motives’ one.

As an acne and blemishes sufferer, I prefer No More Shine. However, there’s also 10-Years Younger to choose from!

Setting spray is important at the best of times, but even more-so now, for avoiding the transfer of makeup to our masks… Although, having said that, makeup probably isn’t the best idea when we have to wear masks outside anyway!

Are you searching for tips on how to cure lockdown acne? I gotchu!

Shop Small: ‘Enchanted’ by FairyMoonCandlesUK

shop small

I’m back with another ‘shop small’ post, and again with FairyMoonCandlesUK. This time, it’s the turn of ‘Enchanted’ (a bestseller)!

Yep, I am obsessed – but also: it was a gift from the wonderful Pandora, (as a thank you for my previous review of ‘Guardian Angel’).

Tell me more about FairyMoonCandlesUK

FairyMoonCandlesUK is a small business operating from Manchester, England. It’s owned by Head-Fairy Pandora! 🧚

All products from this Etsy store are handmade by Pandora herself, organically sourced, vegan and eco-friendly.

What does FairyMoonCandlesUK sell?

The clue is in the name… FairyMoonCandlesUK produces and sells a variety of scented soy wax crystal candles. 💎🕯

With Valentine’s / Galentine’s / Self-Lovingtine’s Day around the corner, this would be the perfect gift! 🎁

Tell me more about the ‘Enchanted’ candle

‘Enchanted’ is a lavender scented rose-quartz candle. As I’ve mentioned previously, rose quartz is the stone of unconditional and universal love…

The aroma of lavender is nicely potent, but soothing. You can keep it open in your room as you sleep. 💤

shop small

What’s the packaging of ‘Enchanted’ like?

The ‘Enchanted’ candle came packed in the same way as ‘Guardian Angel’ (the citrine candle I bought las year).

It arrived wrapped in gift paper, tied securely with a cute bow. Also, the bubble wrap underneath (protecting the candle) is biodegradable – so that’s a plus. 🌎 ♻️

In terms of the candle itself, it was identical to ‘Guardian Angel’ in the way it’s presented, inside a metal pot with a transparent plastic lid, showing off the stunning candle.

Let’s talk about the aesthetic of ‘Enchanted’

Like ‘Guardian Angel’, the silver sequins, mini raw clear quartz pieces and dried rose petals are a standard – joined by a light dusting of lavender and a rose quartz statement piece. 🌹✨

I hugely regret lighting my ‘Guardian Angel’ candle last time! So, I’ve learned my lesson.

What’s next on my FairyMoonCandles list?

I’ll continue to shop small with FairyMoonCandlesUK (and other Etsy stores).

Next on my list is FairyMoonCandleUK’s Moonlight candle (including Moonstone), followed by Sweet Dreams (featuring Amethyst). I also plan on re-buying ‘Guardian Angel’ at some point too!

Pandora, thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Wishing you a successful & prosperous 2021! ✨

Lush: Limited Edition Bath-Bombs

bath-bombs

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so I’m starting the celebrations early by trying out Lush’s limited edition bath-bombs.

I bought four, one of which I’ve used loads of times before – because I just love it!

bath-bombs

Lush Love Boat

Love Boat’ is my all-time favourite, limited-edition Lush bath-bomb. Every year, I’d get one and set sail (in my own bathtub).

Regarding the aesthetic: its blue & pink hues, together with the hidden yellow are just perfect, blending together to make the softest, most dreamy purple.

Now, for the fragrance: it’s very citrusy thanks to the addition of sweet organic orange oil and Sicilian lemon oil. But, I particularly like the twist coming from the rose oil.

bath-bombs

Love Me Do

Love Me Do’ is one of the newer Lush limited-edition bath-bombs… Upon first impressions, it reminds me of Deep Sleep.

Like Deep Sleep, it includes lavender oil – but the difference is this one’s rose-heavy, as opposed to just lavender.

I love, ‘Love Me Do’ mainly for its backstory… Lush included only the finest of Pakistani roses – sourced from its regenerative buying project in Pakistan.

bath-bombs

Love Locket

Love Locket’ is yet another new limited-edition bath-bomb, but this one’s even more special because it’s a three-in-one!!!

Sort of like the concept of Russian Dolls, this is a giant heart locket – with mini hearts hidden under the lock (which – by the way – is a mini detachable bath-bomb). You can opt to use this all in one go, or spread it out across three baths.

It you’re a Lush aficionado, the best way to describe this is it’s identical to Yummy Mummy (a line of limited-edition products celebrating Mother’s Day). In other words, this bath-bomb’s top notes are strawberry and geranium.

bath-bombs

Heart Beat

Lastly but by no means least-ly, this limited-edition bath-bomb is ‘Heart Beat’.

Now, if you’re looking for a product to compare it to, think: Rose Jam. It’s pretty much the bath-bomb version! Yep, you guessed it – like most before it, this one also smells like roses!

Aesthetically, it’s beautiful… Bright pink with gold hearts… What’s not to love!?

Which is my favourite?

They’re all lovely… I cannot choose!

🌟 Roses are my favourite flowers (and there’s rose aplenty in each) 🌹

🌟 Citrus is my favourite fragrance, particularly in Lush products – hence why I’ve loved Love Boat for the longest time! 🍊 🍋

🌟 ‘Love Locket’ is so unique in its aesthetic. 🔒❤️

🌟 …and Heart Beat is perfect thanks to skin softening cocoa butter… I came out the bath with smooth, glistening skin!

Have you tried any – or thinking of trying them? Let me know in the comments section below!

The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

I’ve had the acne spots/scarring and skin blemishes of a pubescent-teen a lot longer than being a pubescent-teen actually lasts…

Way before Covid, I remember being in Selfridges about to throw major £££ at a high-end brand to treat them, when a lady stopped me to recommend I go to Deciem’s The Ordinary instead.

In that exact moment, I felt so many things… Awkward for myself being in that position, sorry for the salesperson, but also thankful to lady who recommended The Ordinary.

The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

You might be pleased to know that me and my purse left Selfridges (because I was too cringed out to stay in the building), heading to Oxford Street’s Top Shop (where The Ordinary had a stall). Honestly, that’s when my life (and face) changed, and my bank-balance breathed a sigh of relief! 😅

I’ve always heard of The Ordinary, but I didn’t realise it could work so well for me. The fact that its products are highly potent scared me a bit… All I could think about was “What if they cause my skin an adverse reaction!?” Well, thankfully they didn’t.

The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

What did I buy?

🌟 Salicylic Acid 2% Masque

Salicylic acid is gentle (and a must for those who suffer from skin blemishes). Even though it’s a charcoal mask, I’d still advise you to use it sparingly. My recommendation would be once or twice a week, as overusing can irritate the skin.

🌟 Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Niacinamide is a type of Vitamin B3 which combats acne, soothes inflammation and brightens the skin. With the addition of Zinc, this also helps regulate oil production, and getting rid of the excess.

🌟 Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%

This is a light, topical moisturiser which is packed with azelaic acid. In layman’s terms, azelaic acid is a kind of good bacteria that our bodies naturally produce. Its properties include: anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and even prevention of build-up in our pores.

🌟 Retinol 1% in Squalane

As a squalane cleanser, this product is gentle but effective when it comes to removing makeup, pollution, dirt, and impurities. It also leaves the skin looking clean, clear and smooth to the touch – perfect for getting rid of skin blemishes.

🌟 AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Probably my favourite product, this peel is a deep-exfoliant which helps fight off skin blemishes and improves radiance. What’s more, is it helps the appearance of our skin’s texture, gradually reducing the look of fine lines. Pretty much an all-rounder!

Putting it bluntly, The Ordinary’s AHA 30% is a strong solution. So, a little goes a long way. I’d recommend using it no more than once a week.

🌟 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil or 100% Plant Derived Squalane

As you’ll come to realise, your skin will start to dry out when practicing this regimen. I guarantee you’ll be reaching for the oils in no time. When you do, give The Ordinary’s soothing rosehip or nourishing squalane a try.

The thing I love about both of these is that they’re 100% organic… They’re raw and filled with nutrients. My preference? I’d say rosehip.

The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

My beauty routine for clearing skin blemishes:

Below is my morning regimen:

  • Cleanse (Squalane)
  • Salicylic Acid 2% Solution
  • Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
  • Suncream (I use Kheils)

Below is my evening regimen:

  • Cleanse (Squalane)
  • Retinoid serum (three times a week)
  • Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% (optional)
  • 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rosehip Oil or 100% Plant Derived Squalane
The Ordinary Cleared Up My Skin Blemishes

How this regimen improved my skin blemishes:

I don’t know what it is, but seeing %s and types of acids included on the label/packaging is always a major worry. Looking back, that was probably what put me off in the first place…

However, I was very pleasantly surprised by how gentle they were on the skin (when used carefully).

Honestly, they dried my skin out quite badly, but I suppose that’s what needs to happen for the acne to stop. I went from “OILS FOR DAYS!” to “dry skin AF”!

But, you get your skin under control, you’ll be able to move onto other product lines.

Pukka: Love Tea

pukka love

In the lead up to February 14, I intend to be spread the ‘love’ with posts like these…

I don’t want to tease you any longer, so let’s get straight into discussing ‘Love’ tea by Pukka!

It all started when I read that ‘Flower Power’ by Clipper (Cupper in Germany) was a great tea for clearing the liver, detoxifying the body and giving skin a radiant glow… After finding that out, I got hold of some!

pukka love

I loved it so much that I went in search of a tea that had the same benefits (to form a comparison post) and as if by magic, ‘Love’ by Pukka came into my life. I was very happy about this, because it fit my Valentine’s Day theme perfectly!

Although ‘Flower Power’ has hibiscus, chamomile, lime-flower and elderflower… ‘Love’ has chamomile, elderflower, lavender, licorice, limeflower and marigold. As you can see, the only ingredient missing from Love is ‘hibiscus’ – which I believe is easy to get hold of as a separate tea.

FYI: studies have proven that two herbal, vegan and organic teas a-day never hurt nobody… The worst that’s happened is they needed to empty their bladder a lot more than usual!

What are the said benefits of drinking ‘Love’ tea?

lavender

Lavender and chamomile are known to be relaxants. They calm the mind, and promote better sleep.

rose

Rose is associated with radiance, and leaves skin hydrated and moisturised – hence why it’s used in beauty products. It’s also supposed to be soothing.

elderflower and lime-flower

As you’ll notice, elderflower and lime-flower both featured in Clipper’s Flower Power – which claimed to detoxify the body and cleanse the liver, while also boosting the immune system.

marigold

Lastly [on the ingredients front], liquorice and marigold have great anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties.

My verdict on Love tea

Honestly, I’ve only drank it twice (in two days), so I’m in no position to give a full review of its effects on me personally, but – what I will say is this: I’ve felt less bloated (PMS) – and with each sip, I fell in ‘lovethat little bit more…

A tip that I’d give those who are wanting to try it, but have a sweet tooth: pop a teaspoonful of honey/sweetener in, as it can be bland on its own. I opted for a spoonful of lavender honey (to enhance the flavour), and it did the trick.

What are the differences between ‘Love’ and ‘Flower Power’?

Honestly, not much. They are both quite bland without honey (no offence), use similar ingredients, and have the same sort of said benefits…

They’re also both floral in taste. Obviously, the only clear difference is one includes hibiscus, and the other includes marigolds, liquorice and lavender – so the taste just slightly varies.

Which is my favourite?

I’d have to say I’m a lover not a florist… Although, I would Love to open a florist when I retire. 💐

Love wins.

‘Guardian Angel’ Candle – Etsy

guardian angel

I’d like to introduce you to Pandora’s FairyMoonCandlesUK, a small business on Etsy that do incredible scented, soy wax candles that are vegan and eco-friendly.

Those of you who know me, will know I love candles – even though I used to have an irrational fear of matches or flames! Emphasis on “used to”. 😂

guardian angel

Pandora at FairyMoonCandlesUK hand-makes the most beautiful scented candles, filled with sequins, dried rose petals and healing crystals (another passion of mine).

What is the ‘Guardian Angel’ candle?

The ‘Guardian Angel’ candle (pictured above) has a beautiful citrusy-lemon 🍋 meets ginger scent which I love! It’s very refreshing.

Also, it comes with pieces of clear quartz and citrine planted in the wax. Simply sublime… You’re welcome!

If lemon isn’t your thing, there are other varieties that are just as stunning. All types can be found here.

Oh, and – another thing that’s important is: customer service… Well the service I received, together with communication throughout shipment (and post-delivery) is second to none. Really, really fab.

Also, something unexpected arrived with my delivery – a free crystal gift as a little thank you for shopping with FairyMoonCandlesUK. That was an incredibly sweet touch.

Tell me more about the ‘Guardian Angel’ candle

Now for the packaging, very well wrapped. It came gift-wrapped in soft paper and securely fastened with a very neatly tied bow to match! The fairies pulled out all the magical stops… 🧚‍♀️

What others think of the ‘Guardian Angel’ candle

I gifted this candle to my boyfriend’s mum for Christmas, he passed on her message: “she absolutely loves it! Super lemony, gorgeous too, thanks!

My mum gifted a couple to her friends: “how unique! It’s very authentic.” / “it’s lovely, thank you! The stones in there are a great touch.” / “it goes perfectly with the decor [the recipient owns a beauty salon]”

I gave one to my mum too who lit it on the first day she received it, as she couldn’t wait another minute! 😭❤️

My next purchase will be for myself, one that I won’t light as it’s simply too stunning to light.

Thank you Pandora, your products are amazing.

I will be shopping with Pandora at FairyMoonCandlesUK throughout 2021, and I highly recommend her handmade pieces!
