Rituals Cosmetics!

Hey!

A couple of weeks ago, guest blogger Maria from Universo Larita wrote about Rituals Cosmetics and a couple of days later I received a little present from my mum.. a Rituals Cosmetics box set!

I’m so glad I got to try these products for myself. They smell amazing and I love setting aside an evening to pamper myself!

The box set included the Good Luck Scrub, Fortune Oil, Touch of Happiness body cream and Happy Buddha foaming shower gel.

I really recommend trying them out for yourself! They’re an affordable treat, and a great gift for a friend! 

Rituals Cosmetics – Universo Larita!

Today’s post comes from Maria, founder of Universo Larita! Be sure to check out her bilingual Spanish/English blog!
Mae post heddiw yn dod gan Maria o Universo Larita! Ewch draw i gael golwg  ar ei blog dwyieithog Sbaeneg/Saesneg!

A few weeks ago I could get a free gift set from a famous Spanish magazine called Glamour. A couple of products from the body care brand Rituals Cosmetics. This body range is called Laughing Buddah, which it is made of citric ingredients. I am a lover of all related with citric fruits so I decided to choose this range instead of Sakura range (made of cherry and rice milk), which was also available.

The two products I could try were the two shown at the picture, the body cream Touch of Happiness and a body scrub called Fortune Scrub. I really love the names as they just make you feel positive by just repeating the names to oneself, hehe.

Touch of Hapiness is a body cream which its main ingredients are sweet orange and cedar wood. This last one is the main reason it gives the product its special scent, in my opinion. Despite this, the cream works properly and I don’t find anything special if you compare any other cheap body cream you can find in a drugstore. I don’t think I’d get it again. Since I am only interested in the scent, I’d probabbly get a perfume bottle, available on their website. Anyway, If you are interested in getting the body cream, I gotta say you can only get it if you purchase the gift set, as it is not sold separately, quite weird.

Fortune Scrub is a body scrub to use in the shower. I really really loved this product. It reminds me so much to Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy body scrub, but this one from Rituals leaves your skin with an awesome body scent. Among its ingredients you can find organic mandarin and Yuzu (a citric fruit grown in Japan).

The truth is, I have never used any product of this brand before and now I am eager to try out more of them. They even have a home range with scented candles or air fresheners.

Is there any other Rituals Cosmetics product would you recommend? Just leave a message below and let me know, thanks! xxx

La revista española Glamour, en su número de Abril, regalaba dos productos de la fantástica marca de cuidado corporal de Rituals Cosmetics. En algunos números los dos productos que regalaban correspondía al rango Sakura (con ingredientes como cereza y leche de arroz) o Laughing Buddah, la que yo escogí, con ingredientes cítricos entre sus componentes.

Los dos productos del rango que he podido probar son la crema corporal Touch of Happiness y el exfoliante corporal Fortune Scrub. Si no pudiste hacerte con ellos, o simplemente estás pensando en comprarlos, aquí te dejo mi opinión!

Touch of Happiness es una crema corporal cuyos componentes principales son naranja dulce y madera de cedro, que creo que es lo que le da ese aroma tan penetrante. Si bien esta crema corporal te deja la piel muy suave, lo que le hace “especial” es su perfume, ya que sus propiedades hidratantes no son especialmente mejores a cualquier otra crema barata que haya probado. Por lo que creo que compraría directamente el perfume antes de la crema. Aunque observando la web, me llama la atención que la crema corporal únicamente la venden dentro del set de regalo completo, y no por separado.

Fortune Scrub una exfoliante corporal, y esta si que me encanta! Me recuerda muchísimo a la exfoliante de Garnier Pure Active Fruit Energy, sólo que esta de The Rituals Cosmetics deja la piel mucho más perfumada. Entre sus ingrediente se encuentran la mandarina y el Yuzu, un cítrico que crece en Japón parecido a la mandarina.

La verdad es que nunca había utilizado ningún producto de esta marca, y tras probarlos tengo mucha curiosidad, ya que incluso tienen productos para casa, como velas aromáticas o ambientadores naturales.

Hay algún otro producto de Ritual Cosmetics que me recomendéis? Podéis dejarlos en los comentarios! Besitos!

speedy mani!

The gorgeous colours of Barry M’s Speedy Quick Dry collection caught my eye straight away! And it realy does dry in ‘lightning speed’!

With ‘Eat My Dust’, I got a perfect spring shade mani without the burden of having to sit for aaaages for the paint to dry. It also has a flat brush, which I haven’t seen in Barry M before. It makes application super easy and fast!

Now, to collect the other shades.. How about ‘Lap of Honour’…

Cefais fy nenu gan y lliwiau deniadol casgliad Speedy Quick Dry Barry M yn syth!

Gyda ‘Eat My Dust’, cefais y mani perffaith heb orfod eistedd am oria yn disgwl i’r paent sychu. Mae ganddo brwsh fflat hefyd, rhywbeth nad ydw i wedi gweld  gyda Barry M o’r blaen. Mae hyn yn gwneud paentio yn lot fwy rhwydd!

Rwan, rhaid casglu’r lliwiau eraill.. Beth am ‘Lap of Honour’…

Healthy is the new Skinny!

image

Healthy is the new Skinny is a small organisation that has made a big impact.  

I’m guilty of wanting to be like a model in a magazine, wanting amazing abs and flawless skin. To be totally honest, I wanted it so much that I started hating what I saw in the mirror and spent hours picking out my faults. And I know I’m not alone.

When on Facebook one day, someone shared a post from Healthy is the new Skinny’s Facebook page and, being the curious me, I had a look at what this page was about. From that point, my perception of my body image changed. Instead of picking my faults and putting myself down when I ate, I started picking out and working on my strengths. Instead of wanting the make-believe-bodies, I started liking my own body.

They also sell a range of clothing, from jackets to snapbacks! So, how could I ever resist buying a hoodie? It’s only just arrived, and it’s super comfy!

Check out their online shop by clicking HERE 🙂

Sefydliad bach ydi Healthy is the new Skinny, ond mae nhw wedi cael effaith mawr arnai.

Dwi’n euog o eisiau bod fel modelau mewn cylchgronnau, eisiau abs anhygoel a’r croen perffaith. I fod yn hollol onest, roeddwn i eisiau edrych fel y modelau gymaint, wnes i ddechrau casau beth oeddwn i’n gweld yn y drych. A dwi’n gwybod nad ydw i ar ben fy hun.

Pan oeddwn ar Facebook un diwrnod, roedd rhywun wedi rhannu post gan Healthy is the new Skinny a mentrais i edrych beth oedd y tudalen yma. O’r pwynt yma, newidiodd fy ngolwg. Yn lle pigo ar y namau a casau fy hun wrth fyta, dechreuais pigo fy nghryfderau a gweithio arnynt. 

Mae nhw hefyd yn gwerthu dillad ar eu gwefan, o siacedi i hetiau! Felly sut allai beidio prynnu hoodie?

Rimmel Mani!

Rimmel nail polish. Need I say more?

I’ve been looking for a grey shade for a while, but couldn’t find any ANYWHERE. I know, it’s not too spring-like, but something told me I needed to find one and try it out!

And then I found ‘Moon’, a polish from the Salon Pro collection by Kate Moss. With a lovely glossy finish, it serves to be a very sophisticated look and I’m so glad that I went on the hunt for it!

Paent gweinedd Rimmel. Oes rhaid i mi ddweud mwy?

‘Dwi wedi bod yn edrych am baent gewinedd llwyd ers oes, ond methu dod o hyd i ddim yn lan byd. Dwi’n gwybod, tydi llwyd ddim yn liw gwanwynnaidd iawn, ond roedd rhywbeth yn dweud wrthai bod RHAID i mi ddod o hyd i un!

Yna, wnes i ddod ar draws ‘Moon’ o gasgliad Salon Pro gan Kate Moss. Mae’n sgleiniog iawn ar ol iddo sychu, ac mae’n rhoi edrychiad soffistigedig iawn, felly dwi’n falch iawn fy mod i wedi bod yn chwilio amdano!

spring nails – Models Own’s DOVE

image

Spring has very nearly arrived, and what better way to get spring-trend-ready than with a quick mani?

Models Own is my absolute favourite nail varnish brand, and their Speckled Eggs collection throws a little spin on the traditional spring shades. I only own one from this collection (so far), and it’s called ‘Dove’. The pretty pastel colour is perfect to entice you out of your winter sweats!

Mae’r gwanwyn bron a chyrraedd, a pa ffordd gwell i ddathlu ‘na gyda mani?

Fy hoff frand paent gewinedd i yw Models Own, a mae eu casgliad Speckled Eggs yn rhoi tro unigryw ar lliwiau traddodiadol y gwanwyn. Dim ond un o’r casgliad yma sydd gen i (hyd yn hyd!) a’i enw yw ‘Dove’. Mae’r lliw pastel prydferth yn siwr o godi unrhyw calon ar ol y gaeaf!

Benefit – Roller Lash

How could I not buy Elle Magazine last month when they were giving away a free mini Benefit mascara? And then how could I not buy the real thing after it graced my lashes with pure awesomeness?

Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara was released in February, and I rushed to buy it! Being my first Benefit product, I looked forward to discover what I’ve been missing out on.

Roller Lash is no less than amazing. It makes my eyes look twice as big and gives them am instant glow. Even on days where I’m a tad peaky, Roller Lash brightens up my whole complexion!

Sut allawn beidio prynnu cylchgrawn Elle mis dywthaf pan oedd y cylchgrawn yn cynnig mascara Benefit am ddim? A wedyn, sut allawn i beidio prynnu’r mascara go iawn ar ol i’r sampl roi 

Wedi ei ryddhau ym mis Chwefror, nes i ruthro i’r siop i’w brynnu! Hwn oedd y cynnyrch cyntaf Benefit i mi brynnu, felly roeddwn i’n edrych ymlaen yn arw i’w drio!

Mae Roller Lash yn dim llai na anhygoel. Mae’n wneud i fy llygaid edrych dwywaith eu maint ac yn eu gwneud yn fwy gloyw. Hyd yn oed ar y dyddiau ble dwi’n edrych braidd yn welw, mae Roller Lash yn bywiogi fy ngwedd yn syth!
