But i will show you the range of products I was sent and their prices and what they are for.

MY thoughts on exposed skin care


The company are based in the united states so I was abit worried about postage.
I was worrying that there would be high shipping fees etc due to customs etc,
Buy exposed skincare helped inform me that there would be no costs as they shipped via fedex.


Exposed skin care shipped the products swiftly and was very informative to any questions i asked about their products, they also told me which are good for what, although I didn't have acne they agreed to send me it anyway to show my readers what the products are.
But I will continue to use the products especially when i have breakouts.



My thoughts on exposed skin care products


They felt great on the skin, made my skin feel clean fresh and new.
Only thing I couldn't test how effective they were due to not having acne.
but I am happy with the products I received and think they are worth the price.


Overall Verdict


My Overall verdict on exposed  skin care and their products, is 50/50 im neutral on this one.
Purely because I can't test the product to full due to not having acne.
But they are decent products for the fact my skin felt better in general I am pleased.
Because my skin felt much cleaner without feeling clogged up with products I am slowly warming more and more to this brand.


However I do feel it would be great for them to have a wider range of products.
It would be amazing to see more products on the site in near future.


But regards to the company having shipped my product out quick,
The fact they do ship to the United Kingdom was really great as some overseas stores don't.
I was really impressed with the fact that the company answered any questions I had.

How A Facebook Post Made Me Emotional




Hey girls and guys I am back with a different kind of post.
Today's post is a little emotional so I apologize to anyone sensitive like myself.
So as a Facebook user who looks through my timeline, and also search in the selling groups.
I came across a post monday evening and something drew me in to read it as i began to read my hurt began to beat and it felt if my heart was being ripped into two.


A for sale post with brand new baby clothes with tags, £35 
for sale baby clothes new with tags due to our daughter passing away.

I couldn't believe what I was reading I felt heartbroken.
To make things worse people was commenting can you take less money.
It was really upsetting to read it all and my heart was hurting for this couple.



I posted a message asking if they had paypal because I wanted to send over some money.
Few people started to like my comment and one person commented saying the couple should try set a go fund page up when they are ready as it might help them get a memorial for their little sleeping angel.


Anyway the dad of skyla the sleeping angel messaged me saying it was kind to see my lovely message,But he didn't want any money as they wanted to sell the clothes to get some money towards a few things.

Due to having not been able to bury their baby due to family living miles away,
They had to have a cremation so they could take skyla's ashes with them when they moved.
They then moved back to london And wanted to sell the clothes to set up a memorial garden.

So anyway I said I really wanted to send money, he popped his paypal address over,
He then said I didn't have to send any money he didnt expect anything like this.



Anyway I logged into paypal and paid £10 over to him and his wife.
I know it wasnt alot of money but thought it would be a start a little something,
 towards some flowers or something for the memorial garden.

Aaron and his wife was so overwhelmed and called me a star 
They said its been a long time since they have seen someone so caring and thoughtful.




So anyway they have now set up a justgiving page to try raise money.
To have a real memorial garden with a little bench flowers etc,
so they can remember their little skyla who was born sleeping.



if you like to donate  and share that would be amazing 
if you can't donate please share the link every share helps also.
After all every little kind deed goes a long way.


Also if you know any gardeners or bench makers feel free to send them link to.
Im sure as a community of people if we can share this around it can help.
 There are a few lovely kind people out there who might be able to help in some way


Thank you for reading
love hugs kisses

Samsung DV80H8100HW Review




Smart Tumble Dryer Samsung DV80H8100HW
(Tumble dryer courtsy of ao.com for me to keep and review)

Hey boys and girls Hope you are well, today I wanted to show some of you the tumble dryer that I mentioned to a few of you who was asking about it and those of you who was wondering why it is £700 to buy new from places like ao.com, currys, etc.

From the moment I first saw this on the website I instantly fell in love with it.
I loved the look of it and everything it claimed to do it was eye catching.
Buying a tumble dryer is like a dating profile you have to see what you are buying into.


Well I was at pro-beauty when the tumble dryer was delivered to my home.
because I wasn't in to sign hubby signed for the delivery.
Then he put the tumble in the lounge in the corner due to no room in my kitchen.
He then began to tease me Texting me saying I get to play with the tumble dryer.
( lol told you he is a big kid)

Anyway when I arrived home from pro beauty I see my tumble sitting there in the corner.
So I am going to talk you through the tumble dryer from the features to the design hope you enjoy reading please feel free to ask any questions you may have and I try my 100% to answer them.


First Impression

copywrite ao.com
The warm feeling mixed with butterflies I fell in love with the tumble dryer in its beauty.
I was also excited to see what else was on offer what features it had what else could it do.
was so overwhelmed by the dryer I couldnt stop talking about it from the moment it was on the way to be delivered to me now and probably forever more.
It is the best appliance in my home.




Design


The tumble dryer is bulky as in big but it still looks sleek and modern.
It reminds me of a time machine or porthole with the nice design of the door.
The touch responsive buttons add that extra oomph you get the drift it just looks good.
Even though looks are not everything this tumble dryer as the full package.




Other features

Drying options
Sensor drying means the tumble dryer will stop when your clothes are dry meaning you won't be over drying your clothes, which means less eletric used and less shrunken clothes.

Mute button: if you don't want the buttons to play a tune you can turn off the sound.

Child lock means you can lock the control pad meaning if you have children that if they press the buttons it wont affect your dry cycle in anyway, the buttons also play a tune meaning if they do press the buttons they have fun.


Additional information
The smart tumble dryer is also quiet when running at only 65 decibels it is sure to impress.
I have mine in my living room drying my clothes whilst im watching television.

Overall Verdict



So anyway I have been using the dryer now for a few months!!
Overall I am impressed with the stylish design and  advanced features like the child lock, the lamp and all the different dry settings ie cupboard dry iron dry quick dry.
There is also a wrinkle prevent which is fab if you want less crinkled clothes every busy person dream is to cut down ironing time.

Although for me the drying times sometimes can be a bit long especially if you're in a mad rush to get out and go to meet friends or take your kids to the park etc.

But having said that I can understand why it takes so long to dry because of the big drum 8kg.
I can fit about 3 lots of wet washing in the tumble dryer because my washing machine is much smaller than this big stylish sleek tumble dryer.

The old tumble dryers that are not condensers they can cause condensation,
meaning you're more likely to get mould and damp inside your house.



But with this tumble dryer you will not have this problem because its a condenser meaning all the dampness aka water is collected in the draw which you can empty after each use.
I am really impressed with the dryer so far it has not let me down.




Thank you for reading my review! 


Is it worth £700 ?
I would say yes but at same time no because there is much cheaper ones on market.
But because this one as loads of features, nice design and built in smart check I am going to say it is worth the money if you have the money to splash out on it.

If you're on a very tight budget a cheaper one would be ideal as long as it is a condenser one like i mentioned because it helps prevent damp and condensation.




Thanks for reading
Love hugs and laundry
Caroline
