The Fight Of The Yummies


One thing you should know about me, is that I'm a massive addict as far as sweet scents are concerned. Either it is vanilla, chocolate or plain old sickly sugary ones, I'm all in!! If it reminds me of anything edible, then it gets even better for me.
That been said, I have two shower - lotion combos to present, compare and contrast. So, let's get to it!!

PRIORITIES Sugar Babes Creamy Praline Foam Bath and Body Cream:
This comes from the Sugar Babes line of Priorities and can be easily found at Sephora. The scent is definitely sweet though not excactly praline-like. The body cream is very moisturising and has the consistency of a gel rather than a body butter, while the foam bath leaves the skin clean with a slight sugary scent to it (though it takes a good amount of product to create a nice foam).

BODYFARM Sweetline Cocoa Cookies Shower Gel and Body Milk:
The favourite of the two combos, this is a greek product I found by chance while strolling around at a local beauty store. It has a strong scent of cookies with hints of vanilla, cocoa and cinnamon. The shower gel needs only a tiny amount to create all the foam you need and the body milk leaves the skin moisturised and soft. Using both of them will leave the scent lingering on you for quite a while.

The Nude Nail





So lately I've been a fan of the "au naturel" nail as seen in the catwalks and I was on the hunt for the perfect nude. After trying a lot of shades - from pinky ones to grey and back again - I stumbled upon this gem from Sixteen Cosmetics. It's really pigmented and you only need one-ish swipe to have a full coverage, while it dries really quickly (as the name suggests). Also it's the perfect shade for my skintone.

As for base and topcoat, I used my trusty and well-loved Avon Nail Experts base and a fairly new Essense Gel-Look topcoat (see the review here).
