Nivea Pearly Shine review

Friday, May 11, 2012

I am always obsessed with having lip balm on me. I get really dry lips, which is probably because I don't drink enough water and constantly have central heating on because I hate being even the slightest bit cold! Now that I have Alice, I have even less time to spend on make-up, so this lip balm is perfect for a quick fix! The balm moisturises your lips as well as leave a pink shine, which hasn't shown up very well in the picture, but is very light pink. Almost like a lip gloss. The only problem is that it doesn't last as long as the plain, original one and you have to re-apply it quite regularly to keep the effect. However, this is little time I do actually have as it's not like I have to stop and look in a mirror to apply it!

Time consuming beauty and fashion tips are quickly becoming an obsession of mine as Alice is beginning to be awake a lot longer in the day and far more demanding. I am of course very excited that she is more aware of things and a lot more fun to play with, but it does leave me with less and less time. And when I am on my own with her in the day, I really do have to be clever with how I spend what little time I do get to myself! Any tips from other mums would be useful!


PS. It would be lovely to be nominated for best newcomer blog in the cosmo blog awards! CLICK HERE to nominate me! Thank you! 


  1. Does Alice have a playmat? I just pop Aiden on his and he entertains himself while I get ready. And of course, you can still interact with her as she plays. :) x

    1. Yeah Alice is getting much better at entertaining herself for a bit now which makes life easier! The other day I couldn't work out why she was crying and then I realised she wanted to be put down to play! X


I love hearing your thoughts... (And don't forget to follow me too!)
