WUNDER2

Today, I took a girl called Cara to Sunday Mass… #Mascara!

Who’s ready for another lashtastic and punderful mascara review? If you’re not, you need to click the “x” in the top left corner of the screen.

This time it’s the turn of the WUNDERFUL WUNDER2!

WUNDEREXTENSIONS Lash Extension & Volumizing Mascara combines two formulas in the same tube that blend together seamlessly on application to create a false lash effect. The ‘blue’ formula nourishes and hydrates the lash, making it thicker and ready for the next formula. The ‘black’ formula attaches mini 3D lash extensions to the lash creating length and even more volume. This Dual-Formula Technology enables our WUNDEREXTENSIONS Mascara to provide you with multiple lash benefits with just one stroke of the brush.

Whooooo! I really wore the hell out of this mascara, guys! 😉

I’ve been wearing it for a few days and I can categorically tell you that it’s the best mascara since “the best mascara“.

Yes, I know – every time I discover a mascara, it’s the new “best” one. Honestly though, this one actually is.

Do you want me to tell you why..?

Okay.

Firstly: it doesn’t flake like a Cadbury’s… I have a real issue with my previous mascaras, even if I didn’t mention it… They flake off and start leaving bits of dried formula all over my under-eye area.

Contrary to what you may believe, I don’t spend a lot of time looking into mirrors! Therefore, you can bet that I’ve been known to sit through meetings looking like an eczema ridden panda/raccoon. Yeah, not remotely nice or attractive, but there you go… This is a problem no more thanks to WUNDER2.

Secondly, it is the first mascara to exist (that I’ve discovered) which washes off without leaving marks or stains!

WOW. Can I get several “OMG! THAT’S SO FETCH!”s, please? Thanks.

Like, seriously… It’s BOOMTOWN! I can declare that I washed my face just once and didn’t have to follow up with a wet-wipe. Girls/guys who wear makeup, you know how hard it is to take mascara off, don’t you? It’s a mission!

Thirdly, the formula is the bees knees (not my own because… DON’T EVEN MENTION MY KNEES!) it’s got fibres that lengthen the lashes, fan them out and make them look like falsies. Don’t worry though, ’cause they’re left looking like the most natural looking falsies… Falsies that look like realsies. Yes, that’s more like it!

Fourthly (‘how long is this going to go on for..?’ Your guess is as good as mine!), I enjoy the richness in the colour of this mascara’s tint. All black errtaaaaaaaang! The darker the hair, the cooler the flair… #Raven.

Fifthly, and by ‘fifthly‘ I mean the number FIVE-LY not FILTHY – you FILTHY ANIMAL/S!

Anyway, fifthly,  it’s just the be all and end all of the society of lashville… So, if you’ve got lashes (or lash extensions), wrap your them around this wand…You’re going to want to!

Sixthly (this may take a while), let’s mention the wand… WANDS AND DAT!

Bae. It’s the BAE ALL AND BAEND ALL OF WANDS! You’re BAEsically going to WANT this WAND. It’s thin, but gets in all the right places, covering all lashes at all angles, top and bottom.

Seventhly (oh, just pull up a chair!), there’s no excess of formula on the wand. The right amount of formula is always on the wand – ready to be applied. Also, that leads me onto eighthly and ninthly smoothly (wait, that could also be tenthly).

Eighthly: a little goes a long way. Kinda like Mo Farah but not. Look, I’ve never met him, so how should I know?!

Ninthly, it doesn’t clump. Like at all. Each lash is fanned out and looking naturally tinted, curled and lengthened (probably up to SEVENteenthly now).

What makes up my ‘tenthly’, you ask? This mascara is smooth like a cigar… I don’t smoke and don’t condone smoking at all, but I’m guessing cigars are smooth.

Veet

Are you ready for the Holy Grail of waxing? Wax on. Wax off. Ruby Wax. Wax lyrical. Don’t fax, wax. Wax. Bloomin’ wax! Not ‘shine’ wax – hair removal wax… Did I mention: “wax”? Pay tax. Wax. Alright, enough! I won’t be mentioning the word ‘wax’ again.

Veet. Easy *** strips are just the be-all-and-end-all of a soft, smooth and hairless life… Listen, I’m not going to beat around bushes (probably ’cause I don’t have any after using these strips) but I love them.

They’re cheap, can be bought from anywhere (within reason); I mean, a WINE merchant might not stock them, but Boots and/or Superdrug will.

Aside from the fact that they’re cheap and easily accessible, they’re also very easy to use and relatively painless [if you don’t have much hair]. I mean, if I were to let my hairs overgrow, this’d be a completely different review! I’d probably be slating it for being too painful… 😝

If I had to give constructive criticism, I’d say the results are REALLY sticky. Smooth, good results at a price of sticky. Look, I know what you’re thinking: “it’s hair-removing ***!” [you thought I’d forgotten about the word ban, didn’t you? 😉] I get it, I do, it’s just the wax shouldn’t stick to your face after you’ve ripped it off – should it? Also, should your PJs be sticking to you even after you’ve showered? No, didn’t think so.

I’m not a *word that rhymes with Basement Jaxx* connoisseur but I just didn’t expect it to be that sticky. Having said that, it’s probably* down to the fact that didn’t apply anything prior to waxing. All I did was wash my legs and tapped them dry beforehand.

*definitely

After finding out more, I now realise that talcum powder works better underneath, ’cause it makes it less sticky.

That’s it.

I don’t have much to say except from the fact that they have ones for the face as well as body… Although I don’t use the face ones, I am sure they exist. The ones (pictured) are the type that I own and are suitable for use on those with a sensitive skin-type.

Disclaimer: after using these strips, you’ll feel as though you’re the star of one of their adverts. Trust me! The results are that good.

Tip: don’t overuse them. Wax in general can damage the skin.

femfresh

Ladies, I want to discuss something with you that might cringe you the heck out. However, it’s something that needs to be discussed: feminine hygiene.

I have been using femfresh for so long and I can honestly say it’s the best female cleansing product on the market. I’ve got everything – the wipes, spray and wash/cleanser.

We know that most girls have hundreds of lotions and potions to care for the different areas of their bodies, but what about their intimate skin?

Often this very special skin gets overlooked, using either an everyday body wash, which can in fact strip the very sensitive skin of it’s natural defences, or water which is great, but some of us girls prefer to feel a little extra love when it comes to the most intimate skin.

femfresh has been specially designed to care for the unique pH of your intimate skin, because it’s different to the rest of your body. All of our products are also gynaecologically and dermatologically tested so they’re safe and gentle on this sensitive skin.

If you’d like to join the millions of women who care for down there, look no further.

Do you know how important it is to stay sanitary and hygienic – especially “down there”? The lack of hygiene/sanitariness will without a doubt lead to infection (if not careful). So, one piece of advice: ‘keep clean and look after your nethers’.

Also, don’t be one of those who only does it because they have a boyfriend/partner/husband; do it for yourself! 

Honestly, you’d be surprised the amount of times I’ve heard people say they go that extra mile in cleanliness and hygiene just ’cause they’ve got someone. What? Stay clean – whether you’re single or not – focusing mostly on the areas that matter most.

If you’ve visited femfresh’s website or looked them up,  you’d know that femfresh’s products are “specially formulated to care for intimate skin”. Their products are specifically designed to give it that extra clean and/or “pampering” feeling.

Look, I’m going to be honest, unlike the lady in the video,  I don’t see Femfresh as being a pampering product – it’s just something that I clean with. I’m not crazy enough to treat it to masks. As far as I’m concerned, just stay hygienic. Don’t start buying masks, moisturisers/toners etc. That’s just weird!

Look, cleaning with water is fine, but does it get rid of the bacteria? No. Yes, there are shower gels and stuff but they’re too harsh on sensitive/intimate areas. Also, if you read up on it, you’ll notice that shower gels/washes (that are not formulated for those areas) have been proven to be too strong – with some even leaving a burning sensation… Femfresh isn’t like that, it’s cooling and cleanses really well. The scent isn’t anything spectacular, it just smells fresh and/or clean, like it should.

This Works, In Transit, Camera Close-Up

I had written a post about this for BFrow… It was a long and good one (much like this is going to be), but it sadly got lost.

I’m sure I didn’t publish it right, so I’m absolutely to blame. Don’t worry though, I’ll get the hang of it. It’s all good!

While we’re on the subject, BFrow is a platform that I’d recommend to all bloggers…

The website allows us to showcase our blogs, create new posts and have them read by 100k users. Linking to our blog posts helps boost SEO and will promote growth in followers, readers and interactions too! If you’d like to create an account or find out more – click here.

Enough faffing about, let’s get back to the main purpose of the post… This Works’ ‘In Transit Camera Close-Up’. This (Works) and is the best cream, primer and mask that I have ever worn… To be fair, it’s also the only three-in-one moisturiser I’ve ever worn. 😆

I absolutely love it. I love its scent: roses. I love its consistency: lightweight. I love its finish: soaks in quickly and dries matte. I love the packaging: unique. Everything about this screams “BUY ME with ALL of your £30something (inc. postage)!”

If you’ve read my Glossybox April post, you’ll know that this was the first time I’d tried it (although I’d had designs on it for years beforehand).

Look, as I’m writing this very review, I currently have one tiny whitehead on my forehead – in-between by brows. I’m a hormonal one strand monobrow-sporting chick at the mo. Alas, it’s all in the name of oestrogen (as well as an unexpected probable extension/belatedness of puberty. I mean, what the hell?! Which 25 year old do you know that still gets some pubescent-esque breakouts?! Oh, and before you ask, I don’t count!

What else do I love about This Works’ Camera Close Up? I love that it leaves my complexion flawless (with the added exception of my temporarily suffering pores). It also has an SPF of 30. In London, that’s perfect ’cause the sun has not only “its hat on“, but the biggest “hat” on; this explains why England’s summer doesn’t last (the hat blocks those rays). Putting the BAN in #RayBans.

Pros: 

  1. Flawless skin before/after makeup in just one use
  2. Smells floral and fragrant
  3. Soothes skin, keeps skin clear and controls the release of our skin’s natural oils
  4. Reduces fine-lines and decreases the visibility of nasalobial creases (that’s the price you pay for spending 25 years+ laughing and smiling at my own jokes, I like laughing at another’s too)
  5. It’s a 3-in-1: this reduces not only the amount of time spent getting ready but the amount of product applied onto our faces too
  6. Victoria Beckham aka ‘Posh Spice’ allegedly uses it
  7. It’s manufactured by a well-respected, highly-rated brand that isn’t overrated nor overpriced considering the results that it gives

Cons:

  1. Conor Maynard
  2. Condoleezza Rice
  3. Matthew Mcconaughey
  4. Coney Island
  5. Ice cream cone
  6. Traffic cone
