Jus Roll Bake It Fresh Apple Danish and Cinnamon Rolls

Jus Rol Bake It Fresh Apple Danish & Cinnamon Swirls* (£1.50 each)

I'm all for easy cooking especially when it comes to making things which are normally time consuming to make. Recently I tried out some Jus Rol Bake It Fresh products, which were the Apple Danish and Cinnamon Swirls. Each box contains the pastry already prepared for the oven and any additional ingredients needed. All you need to do is arrange or cut the pastry to form the desserts, pop them on to a baking sheet and into the oven they go. With the Apple Danish pastries all I had to do was fold over the pastries and add the filling to the desserts. With the Cinnamon Swirls I simply had to cut the roll of pastry and drizzle some icing over them when they were baked. The desserts took around fifteen minutes each to cook and they were done. The packaging wasn't the easiest to open as it was a somewhat not so simple twisty cardboard tube. They weren't as tasty as they could of been if made from scratch in my opinion but they weren't bad for something which took so little time.

What desserts do you like to make?

Dr Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask

Dr Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask Review

The perfect pamper session for me involves lots of chocolate, Netflix and a face mask. I've flittered between the Neutrogena Visibly 2in1 Face Wash Mask and the Montagne Jeunesse sachet masks but one face mask I've been loving recently is the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask (£7.49). It's been a staple in my bathroom cabinet for quite some time now, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on it. It's a clay based mask which contains kaolin clay, manuka honey and a bunch of other natural based ingredients. I like to apply a layer of this using an old foundation brush, leave it on for five to ten minutes until it hardens and then I gently remove it with a damp face cloth. After removing it my skin looks glowy and feels a lot smoother with no redness like I've experienced with other face masks. Holland and Barrett are having their penny sale at the moment meaning if you buy one full priced item you can get the second for a penny, making this face mask even more of a bargain.

What's your favourite face mask?

The Wet Brush Paddle Brush

Wet Brush Paddle Brush Review

I've spoken before about my undying love for my Tangle Teezer. Well I may have just found a replacement, cue The Wet Brush Paddle Brush* (£13.99). I admit before using this and just looking at it, I had visions of it barely getting through my very knotty hair but I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to brush my hair with minimal pain. The brushes bristles are very flexible but at the same time strong. The flexible bristles are what makes the brush pain free to use. I use it on wet and dry hair and it doesn't pull my hair and cause any unnecessary damage to my hair. Between The Wet Brush and Tangle Teezer, I have to say that The Wet Brush comes up on top for me due the handle it has and ease of use compared to the latter. I  My only complaint is that it can be a little tricky to clean the brush, especially if you have long hair like mine. I have however discovered that there is a brush cleaner available from Wet Brush which costs around £5 on Amazon. I've yet to try that but it does look like a nifty tool which would effectively remove most of the hair and fluff from the brush. 

What's your favourite type of hair brush?
