Not sure if anyone has been visiting Jelly Pong Pong lately but they have Deluxe Gift Bags again! Ok, so this is probably nothing to get too excited about considering the last bags weren’t available for shipment outside the UK. Boo! But have no fear they ship worldwide now. Yay!
Jump ahead to read the deets!
Ok, so, deluxe bags. What are they, why do you need ’em. Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bags are basically filled with Jelly Pong Pong goodies and offered to us makeup junkies at a seriously discounted price. The first time these were offered Jelly Pong Pong was only shipping within the UK and only had one bag selection available. Since that time, things have changed. These are now available in three selections and are shipped worldwide, wahoo!
Bags are £10 each which converts to $16 USD plus shipping. I purchased all three bags for around $88 USD each which makes each bag around $29 USD each. I broke down each bag and added up what was inside and processed it as $111 USD of items. So buying all three I did save a little bit of money.
Few tips, if you do order they’ll charge you shipping but later send an invoice for the remaining shipping as it’s a standard flat rate of $6.95 but you’ll be charged more. Secondly, the price of $88 USD for all three bags shipped is for residents of the US. Anywhere else I do not know what they will charge for shipping so you can contact them prior to ordering for a shipping details.
Each bag contains two items each and you’ll have three choices for bags however you cannot choose the contents of bags. The bags are as follows:
Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bag One Includes:
Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun ($20 USD Regular Price)
Jelly Pong Pong Cherry Pie ($15 USD Regular Price)
All the items in the bag are full size products and very, very cute. I’ll be reviewing the items I got in my bags shortly in various posts. All in all I think these are really good deals and a great way to try out Jelly Pong Pong. All the items are brand new to the Jelly Pong Pong line and some are particularly fun for Summer.
Please tell me I’m not the only one addicted to the famous Soap & Glory scent? I just love taking big sniffs of this stuff, it’s like crack I tell you! I stock up on the shower gel like no one’s biz because it smells so incredible (I sometimes wash my hair with it too shhhh!).
My second go to item is the Soap & Glory Wash Your Hands Of It Hand Wash. Hey, the next best thing is having Soap & Glory scented hands loves it!
Does anyone even have a name for what this smells like? It’s kinda a bit muscular isn’t it? I can’t even describe it, just get to Target (or Boots) and sniff it!
Soap & Glory Wash Your Hands Of It is made with shea butter for a soothing hand wash hey it even has built in skin conditioners! It’s made with dry hands in mind as it’s meant to sooth, moisturize, and not dry out hands.
But it’s the smell that gets this Muse every time…oh that incredible smell…I wish I could describe it but words fail me, it’s hard to make this Muse speechless.
It could be considered on the expensive side as it is $9.99 USD for an 8.4oz size and I tell ya the way this Muse washes her hands that could last two days at most. But I think it’s a worth it indulgence. By the way the cute retro packaging doesn’t hurt either!
Go have a sniff at Target and come back and tell me if you don’t fall for it quick! Total Muse Approval for purchase.
Well slap me happy the Boots Original Beauty Formula is at Target! Back to basics is where it’s at with Boots Original Beauty Formula. The Muse heard about Boots Original Beauty Formula about a month ago when she popped across it on the Boots UK site but little did she know she’d find it at her local Target so quickly.
Well, whoa. Awesome Target! Well done.
I honestly didn’t expect to see this arrive at Target so quickly and it was shocking to see the display sitting there all happy like and awaiting me to haul from it. The Muse hearts you Target.
Jump ahead for the raves.
Back to basics is where it’s at with the Boots Original Beauty Formula. Think your grandmother’s skincare regime and you’ll pretty much get the idea. Heavy glass jars, rose scented products, and just a very basic concept. Loves it. The Muse happens to love the C.O. Bigelow Rose line so she of course is totally digging all over everything in the Boots Original Beauty Formula as many of the skincare items are rose scented.
I only indulged in the facial line but there is an entire body line available as well. Sadly, my Target was sold out of alot of the items available but I still managed to haul three prime pieces.
It deserves to be mentioned that these items are no way going to take over my normal skincare regime but regardless they are decently priced and fun for those days I’m just hurrying to do a quick clean up at the end of the night.
I hauled the following items:
Boots Original Beauty Formula Cold Cream ($9.99 USD)
Boots Original Beauty Formula Overnight Skin Cream ($12.99 USD)
Boots Original Beauty Formula Skin Tonic Damask Rose ($9.99 USD)
Before I get into my review I will mention that with the conversion rate as it is right now, the prices of the products are around the same as what you’d get in the UK minus $1-$4 at most. I picture little old English ladies running to their newest Boots to stock up on all these items.
As I mentioned this is very basic skincare, simplicity at it’s best in my humble opinion. The Boots Original Beauty Formula Cold Cream has a light rose scent that’s very pretty but could prove too much for those sensitive to smell. It comes housed in a heavy vintage glass style jar and is an extra thick, cold cream meant for removing makeup. Now it’s not going to get off waterproof mascara but it does a fine job of removing everything else and washing cleanly away while making your face feeling very moist and dewy. To use simply rub onto dry skin and remove with a wet wash cloth, rinse and done, simple!
Boots Original Formula Overnight Skin Cream is a bergamot scented night cream, sigh I sure did wish for rose but that’s ok it smells lovely none the less. It’s quick absorbing and leaves skin feeling very moisturized however it could possibly be a bit too much for oily or even normal skin types. It’s not thick mind you and has a gel-like feel but it’s just a tad heavy. almost but not quite greasy. I find it does an good job as an overnight cream and leaves my dry skin nice and moist but it does make my forehead a tiny shiny. Not bad though and I’m sure I’ll be thankful for it in the Winter. Again, it also comes housed in a heavy vintage style jar. I’m quite partial to the packaging of all of the line as it’s so retro and vanity worthy.
Lastly I hauled the Boots Original Beauty Formula Skin Tonic which is also rose scented. This contains a combination of rose oil and hydrating glycerin. I’m no stranger to these ingredients as I use them quite often in the Winter to get my face prepped and primed for moisturizer! I was in high debate with myself over the price however since it’s a 5oz size for $9.99 and I can get an 8oz of Burts Bees Rosewater & Glycerin Toner for $9-$12. I’ve since forgiven it for the price since it comes in such a cute glass bottle. It feels a tad more moisturizing compared to what I normally use and honestly rose oil and glycerin in any form is a gift from the gods the Muse thinks. It works amazing at removing flaky skin and prepping your skin so whether you try this one or just any glycerin toner, know that your skin will thank you every so kindly for the extra moisture.
I’m unsure whether I deem the items expensive. It seems like very large jars that will last a while so I lean towards saying they are quite nicely priced. I’m quite pleased that Target imported them so quickly as I really thought we’d possibly never see them or it would be months before they reached our shores. If you’re looking for a nice, simple skincare regime I recommend checking these out. I’m quite happy with all three and the entire line seems quite wonderful. Boots never really fails to make me smile. Well done Boots and Target the Muse Approves.
Everyone’s favorite youTuber, Panacea81, has launched her brand new makeup line!
Lauren’s one of those girl’s that you absolutely love because she’s just a down to earth, everyday type of person. I’m quite excited to try out her new makeup line which officially launched today.
Each of her brand new palettes are $32.50 USD each and include three shadows, primer, two lipsticks, one blush, and a liner all stashed away in a super slim, sexy palette with flower motif! Count me curious about these! I just ordered the My Luscious Green palette, believe me it was difficult to decide on just one. I was super tempted to order them all but refrain I did.
As you can see the palettes look quite lovely. I’m very eager to get mine. The total with shipping and tax came to $40 and some change. Not too bad at all! They offer free shipping with two or more palettes, I was tempted to order two.
As I said I’m def looking forward to trying these out! The palettes are limited edition and the site does ship worldwide so I guess you better get on board quick before they sell out.
