Soap and Glory Firminator, Archery and One Heck Of A Blot // Review

Like nearly every female I know (and a good few males), I am a huge lover of Soap and Glory items. I've always loved their body mists, scrubs and bubble bath in particular but when I had a chance to sample and review some of their make up, I couldn't wait. I previously looked at their gorgeous Pom Pom lipstick which you can read about here, but today I am looking at another two make up items, as well as a skin firming moisturiser.

*Archery Brow Tint and Precision Pencil in Brownie Points- £10*

Archery Brow Tint and Precision Pencil

I've only very recently started filling my brows in. For the main bulk of them I just use a brown eye shadow and used to just leave it at that, but since receiving this, I now love using the precision pencil first to fill in the hard to get to ends, and after that use the tint to smooth out the edges and define the ends. I highly recommend this as I do love it and find it useful having both ends on one stick, but for the price of £10 it's a little out of my budget. Buuuut I think I may have to make an exception and repurchase this one!

*One Heck Of A Blot translucent powder - £12*

One Heck Of A Blot Translucent Powder

There's not really that much to say about this powder. I don't find it particularly special, but it most certainly does the job. As I have normal/oily skin, a bit of powder makes my face feel so much more finished as I personally am not a fan of the shiny look. The staying power is pretty good too. I put it on in the morning and then have a little top up half way through that day and that suits me fine. Again, it's a little pricey at £12 so if you have the money then I do recommend it, but I won't my buying this again as I simply can't afford to spend that on just a powder!

*The Firminator special bikini body firming formula - £12*

Now away from the make up and onto this, The Firminator. I'm never overly convinced by these things unfortunately as the things they claim to do I personally believe can only come about by exercise and diet. But nevertheless I wanted to give it a go. But as I expected, I noticed very little. It's said to 'help visibly firm, tone and reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin'. By orange-peel skin I'm guessing they mean cellulite, which I am oh so fortunate to have (wooptoop), but sadly did not see any change after using this. Don't get me wrong though, if you're looking simply for a moisturiser then I'd definitely give this a go as it made my skin feel lovely after. As for smell, it doesn't have the usual 'Soap and Glory smell', but it still smells lovely. A sort of floral, soapy mint smell, which I really love.

Have you ever tried any of these? Which did you love or not love so much? Also, if you've used The Firminator, I'd love to hear how you got on with it and if you noticed any changes!


  1. i really want to try the brow pencil, i'm hoping another brand will bring out a cheaper version! x

  2. The brow tint looks great! x

  3. Ooo lovely! That brow pencil looks good! X

  4. Your brows look amazing :O so going to have to try that pencil!! X

  5. I agree with you, especially about skin firming creams....it's too good to be true! Like with weight loss pills as well - that kind of stuff can only be changed by diet and exercise!


  6. I really want to try One Heck Of A Blot but it seems to be sold out everywhere by me! :( Your make up looks absolutely flawless!
