    Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo

    Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo | Essential Twenty

    I don’t feel like I spend a lot on hair care (apart from my hair cut – why does a wash, cut and blow cost me £37?

But after hearing Anna rave about the Bumble & Bumble Sunday Shampoo for year, I pushed the boat out and treated myself to some luxury hair care.

    Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Review

    Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato | Essential Twenty

    Back in the summer I treated myself to some of the Zoella Beauty Jelly & Gelato Range. I’m not usually one for jumping on the YouTube beauty bandwagon, but with an elderflower scent I could hardly pass it up. I’ve finally got around to trying all the bits and I can share what I think, just in time for Christmas (the people you need to buy for might be more into this scent than the Snow’Ella range, you never know).
