PRODUCT REVIEW - Bomb Cosmetics 'Pepperland' Body Polish

Hi Guys,

So this is a mini review of a product I am ABSOLUTELY loving right now. The Bomb Cosmetics 'Pepperland' Shower Body Polish.

The first Bomb Cosmetics product I ever got was sent to me by the lovely Tolagbe of Social Place in Lagos, this post, to review. I LOVED that body polish and decided I was going to get another. A few weeks ago whilst browsing in my fave beauty store in lagos, Casa Bella at The Palms Mall, I came across their selection of Bomb Cosmetics products and at Casa Bella they've got tester products so you are able to sniff them. I really won't recommend actually testing them on your skin. All the products need for you to dip your finger in and only LORD knows how many other people would've done that... NOT HYGIENIC. But a 'sniff-test' is safe.



This body polish smells divine, and we all know by now I cannot describe a scent to save my life, but I will say this product smells like a Spa! Honestly, when I use this my entire bathroom smells like Barazahi (my fave spa here in Lagos). It's got pure Lemon Grass and Clary Sage essential oils in it.



This body polish, unlike the other one I had, is oil-based so it will leave behind a thin layer of oil on your skin and it's nothing too heavy, doesn't annoy me at all. Ok, so I won't recommend moisturising your skin after using this, especially if you live in a humid climate like I do. Maybe a light moisturiser, if you must!


I believe those little black balls you can see in the picture above are little peppercorns (not sure), but these can get in the way a bit as they do not melt. Really don't know why they're in there. I don't know if I'm just paranoid because of the word 'Pepper' in the name, but this does tingle some when I use it. It's not uncomfortable at all, so don't be put off by this.




This product really does what it says on the tin. I use this the same way I use all my body exfoliants, first I rub it in using my hands, then I go over again using my exfoliating mitts. My exfoliation process is better described in this post I did a few months ago.



 After you have used this, your skin will feel noticeably softer and smoother. This is one product I do not regret buying. I use this once/twice a week depending on how much time I've got when I shower. It really is a great product and will last for a couple months so it's definitely money well spent.


For a brand that's been around a long time and I hadn't paid any attention to until earlier this year, Bomb Cosmetics really is ticking all the right boxes for me so far.

Beauty Experts recommend that we exfoliate our skin at least once a week, it's good to get rid of dead skin so that the new skin underneath can easily replace it. Exfoliating is so good for the skin, it gives it a healthy glow. And you don't necessarily need any of these fancy scrubs/polishes to exfoliate. A good pair of exfoliating mitts and your regular body wash/soap will also get the job done!

Do You Exfoliate? What products do you use?

NIGERIAN BLOG AWARDS - BEST BEAUTY BLOG!

HI EVERYONE!

I am guessing everyone should know this, but just incase you haven't got a twitter account, or a Facebook account, or an Instagram account, and you just might live under a rock (just kidding).

BEAUTY IN LAGOS WON AN AWARD!!

BEST BEAUTY BLOG IN THE NIGERIAN BLOG AWARDS: BEST BEAUTY BLOG

There was no red carpet event for this one. It was done via twitter and people voted this little ol' blog the BEST BEAUTY BLOG in Nigeria!

I know it's a little late as the winners were announced exactly a month ago, but I was waiting for the 'Winner's Badge' to come through first before I typed this up, but that's not happened yet. So decided to do this without it.



Just wanted to say a MAHOOOOSIVE 'THANK YOU!!!' to everyone who voted and everyone who reads this blog. It means a LOT to me! And I know that I do not post as regularly as some of you would LIKE, but this is a hobby for me and as much as I love and enjoy blogging, my real life takes priority most times. But there's still some of you that come back and read and I am extremely grateful.

Once again thanks to everyone who voted!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!

Lots of Love!
