Rihanna RiRi Crush

I love a Rihanna fragrance. There are loads of celeb scents out there but personally I find that Rihanna does perfumes really well!

Crush by Rihanna is the second fragrance in her namesake RiRi collection and her eighth fragrance over all, so this girl knows what shes doing!

Designed by Rihanna herself and inspired by the original RiRi bottle, the bottle is chic and luxurious yet also playful and modern. The soft, sweeping curves of the bottle contrast the hard, dappled effect of the gold lid.

It’s the perfect combination of feminine lines and modern, high fashion. A bit like the lady herself!

As for the scent itself, I personally really like it!

It is unmistakably feminine and would be best described as ‘floriental’.

Opening notes of bergamot, juicy mandarin and pink peppercorn create a sweet yet soft experience while mid tones of pink rose, ylang ylang and red berries compliment them perfectly.

Base notes of creamy musk, cedarwood and patchouli round off the scent with soft, musky and seductive tones that together create a beautifully soft and feminine fragrance.

It is the perfect blend of sweet, fruity and floral, which each aspect getting a look in but neither overpowering the other.

It is a really fun, gorgeous scent and one of my favourite Rihanna perfumes.

Rihanna RiRi Crush is available now and costs £36 for 100ml.

Neom Organics Energy Burst Eau de Parfum

Neom Organics are getting set to launch their debut fragrance in the form of Energy Burst Eau de Parfum.

This unique scent has been created to support both body and mind thanks to its powerful and complex blend of 100% natural essential oils.

This crisp and invigorating scent has been created by blending grapefruit with sparkling lemon and a hint of rosemary, delivering a potent and refreshing burst of energy to help revive your body and power your day.

I’ve been lucky enough to have a little whiff of this fragrance and I can confirm that it is gorgeous!

You can really smell the zesty lemon and refreshing grapefruit and it truly does awaken your senses.

After some time the initial citrus hit does die down leaving a softer and slightly creamier scent which I find really addictive.

It’s a very special perfume that is not only designed to smell beautiful but to awaken and invigorate your body and mind and I can confirm that it certainly does this!

Neom Organics Energy Burst Eau de Parfum is available from February 1st and will cost £49 for 49ml.

Phil Smith Be Gorgeous Total Treat Transforming Argain Oil

I’m always on the hunt for decent hair serums.

The ones that leave your hair feeling silky smooth and shinier than you ever thought possible and I’ve just found one!

This product, while being described as an oil is actually closer to being a lightweight serum in my opinion.

It is enriched with Moroccan argan oil which as we all know is brilliant at nourishing both skin and hair, making this product perfect for dry, coloured and damaged hair.

The oil has a really pleasant, soft and fresh smelling scent and is wonderfully light, perfect for hair like mine that lacks volume as it means it doesn’t weigh it down.

Apply just a pea sized amount to the ends of towel dried hair then blow dry and style as usual.

I only used a tiny amount the first time I used it as I’m paranoid about overloading my hair with products and even using just a tiny amount made a big difference.

My hair felt amazingly soft, even at the ends which are often dry and course.

My hair looked shiner and felt healthier. Winner.

Best still? It currently costs a BARGAINOUS £2.50 at Sainsburys (usual RRP £4).
