Bessie designer skull bag £29.99 (originally £70.00) TKMaxx

I thought I would do a review of this fabulous bag I bought from TKMaxx. The design includes a diamante skull on the front. The rest of the bag is a mixture of blue faux suede and blue faux leather.

The bag is very practical is you are at university or college and have a lot of books etc. I tend to use it when I have a lot of slightly bigger things to carry.

Attached to the bag is a small purse and inside there is a vanity bag with a zip included. These can be used to store money, makeup etc.

I was attracted to the bag instantly when I popped into TKMaxx. Despite this I ended up leaving it but I saw it again on another day and thought what the hey and bought it.

I absolutely love the detailing including the zips and diamante. It has that designer feel about it. I’ve never heard of Bessies as a designer but feel the need to have a look out for similar items when I’m next in TKMaxx. 

I believe at £29.99 it’s a fairly reasonable price and at the original price of £70.00 it’s such a bargain.

Champneys Distant Shores Products

Distant Shores Body Butter

The distant shores fragrance is a mixture of passion fruit, mango extracts and citrus oils. The fragrance is absolutely beautiful and because of this I had high hopes for this range of products.

I found the body butter left a distinctive and sweet scent on this skin which I loved. The overall appearance of the packaging was lovely and luxurious looking.

Despite these key factors I wasn’t overall impressed because the texture was slightly odd. It felt slightly clumpy and uneven. Applying the body butter to the skin was more difficult and left me feeling disappointed in the product.

Distant Shores Body Scrub

My impression of the product was extremely positive and I felt the quality was very high. I was over the moon with this body scrub.  As previously stated I adore the scent of the range.

The grains were very fine, making the scrub easy to apply. Despite this, the scrub left my skin feeling super smooth and silky. 

Distant Shores Shower Mousse

This was the first shower mousse I have used with a pumping dispenser so I didn’t really know what to expect. I found that the pump wasn’t that powerful and didn’t lather up as much I thought it would. 

I wasn’t too sure what benefit the mouse would have but I discovered it to be more moisturising than a general shower gel.

Distant Shores Bubble Heaven

This was probably my favourite product from the range alongside the body scrub. There’s not a great deal to say about bubble bath but I found the aroma divine.

Lots of bubbles were created in the bath and a small amount went along way. It’s a very luxurious product and I would most defiantly repurchase this item on its own.

Baylis Gingerbread Bath Products

Gingerbread body wash

I enjoyed using the body washes over the Christmas period because of their seasonal fragrance. They most definitely had a gingerbread aroma and was very sweet smelling. The two bottles included in the set were identical despite being different colours.

Caramel fudge soap

I don’t use soap very often I much prefer shower gel. I had a whiff but didn’t feel it smelt much of the fudge caramel stated. The fragrance was kind of odd and off-putting and I didn’t like at all. In all honesty it was a bit of a dud. The shower gels included were much nicer.
