A Merry Diva Christmas!

A Merry Diva Christmas!

Hi Divas!
It is the most wonderful time of the year indeed. I love Christmas and all the good vibes and festive cheer it brings. This year my family and I are very prepared for the upcoming day. We have done all our Christmas cleaning, hung up new golden curtains, finished all our crazy Christmas shopping and decorated the house. The only thing left to do is cook up a storm on Christmas Eve. In this blog post I decided to do a post on my top 5 favourite things for Christmas this year. And if you are wondering whether I was naughty or nice in 2016, then keeping on reading below.... ;-)

1. Favourite Christmas Decorations

To start off, my favourite Christmas decoration for 2016 it would have to be Christmas cards. Thanks to technology, no one ever really gives a written card any more. We are usually too lazy to write or take a trip to the post office and end up sending emails and social messages instead. Christmas cards are always so personal and heartwarming. You take your time choosing the perfect one and write a heartfelt message inside. I love that about Christmas time because we go back to being sincere and thoughtful. Most Christmas cards are so adorable and beautiful. They really brighten up a room. When you look at it, you are reminded of the lovely person who took the time to give it to you.

2. Favourite Christmas Beauty Products

 I love getting all glammed up on Christmas day! I usually start with a gorgeous smelling body wash and lotion so the scent lingers on. I love the Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar range. It smells like Christmas indeed. For my face I love to wear my absolute favourite makeup to make me feel special. This year I will wear my number one foundation right now which is Too Faced Born This Way. For the eyes I will use the pretty Too Faced Bon Bons palette for some sparkle and shimmer. On my cheeks I will be warming them up with my Too Faced Sweethearts Peach Beach blush. I love wearing bright red lipsticks on Christmas day. My most loved is the Etude House Etoinette red lipstick. To top it off I will be spritzing the sultry Victoria's Secret Angel Gold fragrance all over my neck and decollete.

3. Favourite Christmas Gift Collections
Every year The Body Shop always steals my heart when it comes to Christmas collections. I usually end up getting everything in every scent. This year was no exception. Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Spiced Apple all come in body washes, body butters, hand creams, candles and more. My favourite scent for 2016 is Spiced Apple. This smells just like Christmas too. It is so divine and heart warming. The Body Shop rocks!!!

4. Favourite Christmas Treats
 My favourite treats for 2016 would have to be chocolates! From the gorgeous and cute packaging to the different mouth watering flavours and caramel or nougat centres. They make excellent Christmas gifts for loved ones, great for Secret Santa games and just pure indulgence to eat on your own. Big Yessss! ;-)

5. Favourite Christmas Music
 Christmas music always reminds me of my late grandfather because he had a Nat King Cole carols tape (back in the day when we still had cassette tapes) that he would play and sing along with. That memory will always be a favourite of mine. Like her father, my mom adores Christmas carols too. We play an array of different Christmas songs in our house. We love rocking to Elvis, feel playful with Bing Crosby, get all cozy with Buble and feel sentimental and blessed with Il Divo. My most loved Christmas song is O holy Night.

6. Was I NAUGHTY Or Nice This Year?
 I was plain blank NAUGHTY! LOL ;-D

I want to wish you all a blessed and wonderful Christmas and Festive Season. Thank you so much for supporting me and being true Divas this year! I love you lots. Let me know below what some of your favourite Christmas things are and if you were Naughty or Nice this year? ;-)

Schwarzkopf Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil Hair Care Range Review

Schwarzkopf Oil Miracle Barbary Fig Oil
Hair Care Range Review

Hi Divas

Welcome back to my blog. I know I have not blogged in what feels like YEARS!!! Unfortunately LIFE has been a little crazy lately. I have really missed blogging because it is a fun hobby and a great stress reliever for me. I am excited to get back on the bloggersphere again with a new post. This week I shall be reviewing some new hair products I received recently. I am a big fan of the Schwarzkopf hair care range. This brand has never disappointed me when it comes to affordable salon products. I bought the Barbary Fig Oil range from the Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Hairtherapy collection. There was a great value bundle available on Retail Box which came with three products and a cosmetics bag. I initially only wanted to buy the hair oil but when I saw the great value bundle, I jumped at the chance to purchase it. What is so special about Barbary Fig Oil, you may ask? Well, it is a plant based oil that is filled with antioxidants and vitamins which nourish the hair and gives super hydration. This range also boosts the strength of the hair with micro keratin that repairs the hair shaft. You are left with soft, shiny and healthy strong hair.

Schwarzkopf Barbary Fig Oil & Keratin Restorative Shampoo
The shampoo is packaged in a 200ml purple tube with gold lettering on it. I love that the shampoo comes in a squeeze tube because it makes it much easier to get the last drop of shampoo out. This shampoo has a lovely sweet scented smell. I would not say it smells exactly like figs but it does have a hint of the fruit. The texture of the product is a purple gel that lathers really well on the hair. It gives the hair a good cleanse without stripping it of moisture. My hair feels clean and soft after using it. It makes your hair smell really good too, which I adore. I think this is a great everyday shampoo. I prefer to use this on days I need to wash my hair after exercising. It is not a deeply nourishing treatment shampoo like the Kerastase shampoos. Therefore I feel if you want a good shampoo that cleanses well and leaves the hair feeling soft then definitely get this one. If you are looking for a more luxurious treatment shampoo then give this one a skip.

Schwarzkopf Barbary Fig Oil & Keratin Restorative Mask
The mask is packaged in a 150ml purple tub with a gold screw on lid. The texture of the mask is what surprised me the most. Firstly the mask is a pretty lavender colour. I have never seen hair products with such unusual shades. The actual mask is really thick. If you take off the lid and turn the tub upside down the mask does not run down at all. It is stiff like whipped cream. The consistency is very thick and a little product goes a long way. This mask will last you quite a long time because you don't need to use much. I like to scoop it out with my two fingers and spread it all over my hair. The mask soaks pretty quickly into your hair, despite it being so thick. I actually like this mask as it gives me a smooth finish and does not weigh my hair down or make it greasy. The mask is aimed for very dry brittle hair but it is not that intense. I feel that someone with fine hair could easily use this and get smooth frizz free tresses. This mask has a similar scent to the shampoo but has a little more punch. I think it is a good everyday mask and is great value for money.

 Schwarzkopf Barbary Fig Oil & Keratin Restorative Treatment
 This is the product that I wanted to purchase the most. I have used other BC Bonacure Hairtherapy finishing treatment oils and I loved them. This one comes in a 100ml bottle. The one I had before lasted me for almost a year and a half. These oils are such great value for money. They last a long time and they are so versatile. You can use it on wet or dry hair, as a smoothing serum before blow drying and has a finishing serum for after styling. The oils protects the hair from humidity and prevents frizz. It nourishes and detangles the hair too. The texture of the oil is not sticky or heavy. It's light weight and can be used on the roots and the ends. It makes my hair soft and shiny without it being overbearing or looking like a grease ball. This oil is great for fine and thick hair. The treatment oil has a lovely smell too and will leave your hair feeling and smelling lovely. This one is definitely my favourite product from the range.

Have you used any of these products? Do let me know below. 
Thank you so much for reading.
Lots of love.

Juicy Couture: Viva La Juicy Gold Couture Perfume Review

Juicy Couture:
Viva La Juicy Gold Couture
Perfume Review

Hi Divas!

I know that I have been missing in action on the blog lately. With all the travelling I have been doing and the end of year almost drawing to a close, things have been a little hectic lately. I like to take my time in writing a blog post and bring quality content to you. I don't want to blog just for the sake of pushing posts out and they are rubbish. I know blogs like that and they are the worst! Quality above quantity will always be the motto of the day. Any way in this post I want to do a review on a lovely product I received in Qatar. My Qatari boss gifted me this beautiful Juicy Couture Gold Couture perfume to say thank you for all the hard work I did in his country there. How generous and sweet is he? If only all bosses were this generous and kind. I was so shocked by the surprising kind gesture that I think I thanked him like a 1000 times. I have always wanted to own the original Juicy Couture perfume. Everything about the brand scream 'Diva!'. To finally own a perfume from the Viva La Juicy collection is an absolute dream come true.

The Gold Couture perfume is packaged in a gold box with an intricate black rim pattern and the Viva La Juicy words embossed in bright pink. The box got a little beaten up while travelling in a suitcase by the way. If you know anything about me you will understand why I am dying for this gorgeous packaging. I mean did you see the bottle? The perfume is packaged in a gold bottle with a clear top cut like a diamond. The base has a cute black polka dot ribbon around it. The gold and pink couture motif on the bottle is the masterpiece of the whole look. Again the packaging just defines Diva Desle right there. It is glamorous, charming, fun and bold. The pink and gold colours are captivating and such a pleasure to look at. I cannot wait to display this on my desk next to my other cosmetics. I own the 50ml bottle and it feels quite heavy in my hands. The actual gold glass bottle is very sturdy and feels quite regal.

On to the scent! This one smells similar to the original Juicy Couture perfume but it is a lot warmer. The main notes are Wild Berries, Caramel and Vanilla. The base notes consist of Honeysuckle, Amber and Jasmine Sambac. On the first spritz the perfume has a deep warm scent with the amber and jasmine notes shooting through. After a few seconds the sweet caramel, vanilla and fruity wild berries start warming up on the skin. It has a mixture of a sweet, woody scent with a hint of citrus. It is very inviting and sultry. I think this perfume is perfect for a night out on the town. It's deep and sexy therefore it might be a little too overwhelming for day time. It's not a seasonal scent though, so you can wear it on hot summer nights or stormy winter nights. It lasts a fairly long time before fading after 5 hours. I like that this scent is not overbearing. It has just enough punch and charm to be captivating but not sickening. If you liked the original Juicy Couture scent you would definitely love this one.

I think this edition to Juicy Couture is super fun and flirty. Although it is sweet, it has a mature quality to it. It does not smell like a teenagers room spray, LOL. A 20 something and 40 something woman can rock this fragrance with confidence. Even the bottle packaging although fun and glam can transcend any age. It would look good on any vanity table whether a young or mature lady. I absolutely adore this packaging. It is so stunning. I definitely recommend this perfume if you like sweet and fruity scents. I love that this perfume will always have a strong and pleasant connotation for me. When I see or think of this perfume, I will remember the beauty of Qatar and the kindness and generosity of the Middle East. ;-)

Thank you so much for reading.

Halloween 2016: Valak Costume, The Conjuring 2 Movie

Halloween 2016: Valak Costume,
The Conjuring 2 Movie

Hi Divas!

I have been super busy these past few weeks and therefore it has been so quiet on the blog. As you are reading this I am currently in the Middle East doing a theatre show there. Since October is known for the month of Halloween, I wanted to do something fun on the blog regarding the day. I decided to do a makeup and costume look based on the character Valak which is a demon from the movie The Conjuring 2. The film was released earlier this year in South Africa and I went to go watch it with my mom. I watched The Conjuring 1 a while back when it first came out. It scared the heck out of me and I was excited to watch the sequel. Both movies are based on true life events which makes the premises of the films even scarier. I must say that I have never laughed so much in a horror movie, the way I did in The Conjuring 2. I was sitting in the cinema and laughing with tears rolling down my face. Not because the movie was funny (it was scary actually) but because there were two 12 year old boys who had sneaked into the cinema and watched the movie next to me. Their reactions were priceless!!! Their heads were constantly in the popcorn box, or their eyes were scanning the floor because they couldn't handle the horror. They were scared out of their minds and their reactions made me crack up laughing. I have never seen anybody watch a movie with their head literally in the popcorn box like they were. Priceless stuff!! Moral of the story is: Children please obey the age restrictions. You will sleep better at night! ;-) Hahahaha, LOL

Valak Tutorial:

White Face:
Since I don't have a white face base makeup, I decided to use my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk Lait and drew it all over my face. I then used a beauty sponge and my fingers to blend it out and create a white canvas. It takes a while to blend and get the right coverage but it works if you have limited products. I then set my white face with my Essence All Matte Fixing Powder.

Black Eyes and Lips:
For the eyes and lips I painted them black with the Maybelline Eye Studio Black Gel Liner. You don't have to be neat and precise in this step because you will be blending it out. I then took an eyeshadow brush and applied the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette black eyeshadow in Crave all over the eyes and lips. After that I shaded the areas on the outside of the eye rings and lips to create depth.

Contour the Nose:
The nose is the most difficult step of the whole look. You have to try to contour the nose to look more witch like, as Valak's nose. To do this I used a fine small makeup brush and out lined my nose with the Maybelline Studio Gel Liner. Next, I used the eyeshadow Crave again to blend and shade. Take your time with this step. I messed up a lot of times but went over it with the white jumbo pencil to correct it. I still don't think it's perfect but it will do. 

Contour the Face:
For the face I added cracks using the gel liner and eyeshadow again with the same thin brush. I also contoured my cheek bones, jawline and smile lines with the same products using the same technique. You can add and blend as much as you want in this step to create the look you want.

The DIY Nun Costume:
This step was pretty easy too. I placed a white spaghetti top and pinned it around my head. I set another white top and wrapped it around my chest area. I then took a white cardboard sheet, cut it in a rectangular shape and layed it across my forehead with the sides tucked in underneath the white spaghetti top. You can use any black cloth to drape over your head and around your body to complete the nun look.

Completed Valak Look

This is actually a really easy makeup look you only need about four products. So what do you think of the completed look? It sure is convincing and will scare the pants off anyone. I hope my church pastor does not see this demon tutorial. He would probably want to pray over me. Hahahaha! You can add yellow colour contacts to your eyes to really make the look believable. I unfortunately do not own contacts, so I had to do without it. If you want to know more about the demon Valak then go watch the movie. I am not giving you any clues to WHO or WHAT, SHE/ HE/ IT is. LOL for days!!!;-)

Thanks so much for reading.

Favourite Diva Smoothie Recipes

Favourite Diva Smoothie Recipes

Hi Divas

Welcome back to my blog! This week I have something very different from all my beauty reviews. I am bringing to you recipes packed with healthy benefits. I am seriously known as the smoothie queen. I make smoothies all day everyday as they are a great way to get your 5 fruits into your system. I have been especially on a smoothie craze in the last four weeks as I have been very busy. I hardly have the time to sit down at a table and eat a healthy breakfast. Smoothies are a wonderful option as a healthy on the go meal. The best thing about creating your own smoothies at home is that you can control the ingredients and make it according to your taste. There are seriously no rules. Buying smoothies at a cafe are very over priced. You can make your own at home for a fraction of the cost. I have rounded up three of my favourite smoothies which I have been enjoying. Here are the recipes:

Banana And Date Smoothie
Ingredients: Two Bananas, 4 to 6 Pitted Dates, Cup of Oats, Two Cups of Water/Milk/Almond Milk, Cinnamon, Pinch of Nutmeg. Blend everything in a blender.

This is my favourite smoothie of life! Not only are bananas high in potassium but one date is filled with twice as much. Dates are a great source of fibre too. Oats and cinnamon will make your blood pressure remain stable throughout the day. This is one drink that will keep you full and your blood stabilised until lunch time. You can add water or almond milk instead of cow's milk if you are lactose intolerant. The pinch of nutmeg gives a lovely woody spicy flavour to the smoothie. This recipe makes two servings and clocks in around 250 calories per serving. Yummy!!!

Banana And Peanut Butter Smoothie
Ingredients: Two bananas, a Tablespoon Peanut butter, a Cup of Oats, a Teaspoon of Honey/ Golden Syrup, Milk/ Almond milk, Cinnamon. Blend everything in a blender.

This is one power packed smoothie. If you are looking for a high energy drink that is packed with nutrients to help your muscles work at its optimum, then this is an excellent option. The bananas give an awesome source of potassium, oats are amazing for fibre and glucose while the peanut butter serves as your protein option which contains magnesium, antioxidants and good fats. People love to drink this smoothie before or after a high intensity workout. I love this in the mornings when I have to perform on stage and need lots of high energy. Plus, did I mention this smoothie tastes just like a milkshake? It's so darn good!!!

Oranges And Oats Smoothie
Ingredients: Two Oranges, 4 Strawberries, A cup of oats, One Banana or Apple(optional), Honey or 4 Dates, Milk/ Almond Milk, a Half Teaspoon Turmeric, a Pinch of Cayenne Pepper, Cinnamon. Blend everything in a blender.

This smoothie is a bit of a weird one and has an acquired taste. I kind of made it up myself because I was suffering from very bad sinusitis and needed some extra nutrients. I was performing last week and I needed my congestion to clear quickly so that I could sing my lungs out on stage. Oranges and strawberries are of cause great citrus fruits which are packed with Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamins B1 and are high in antioxidants. Mixing the citrus fruits with milk and oats creates a lovely creamy paste that tastes so lovely. The added turmeric and cayenne pepper are of cause optional. If you have no problems eating Cape Malay samoosas and Indian Butter chicken curry then you won't have a problem with these spices. Turmeric is known as a super spice because it contains high antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties. It helps clear congestion in a jiffy. Cayenne pepper is famous for relieving allergies, cold and flu fevers and sore throats. I swear this smoothie helped me pack in all these power punching nutrients to give me a speedy recovery. It works!!!

Hope you enjoyed my recipes. Let me know any of your favourite smoothie recipes below.

My 10 Beauty Mistakes: Lived And Learned!

My 10 Beauty Mistakes: 
Lived And Learned!

Hi Divas!

Since I started my blog back in 2012 I have learned so much about beauty. I feel that I have come a long way regarding cosmetics. I have learned by trial and error what works for me and what does not. Just because a makeup trend looks amazing on a model in Cosmopolitan magazine, does not mean it would look great on me. Beauty products are not only meant to enhance your natural beauty, but they are also a fun way to express your personality and your creativity. Looking back at some old photos I have made a lot of mistakes along the way. Let me share some with you.
P.s. Don't judge me! Hahaha

 1. Wearing Toasty Foundations: Back in high school I was not too concerned about foundations and BB creams did not hit the western market yet. There were no Youtube tutorials to show me what to do or give advice on choosing the right base for my face. If I saw a foundation shade that looked brown enough for me to wear to an event, I would buy it. Whether it was too toasty brown for my skin tone, too oily or too dry I didn't care because I had no clue. I just wanted to slap some stuff on my face because that's what you were suppose to do when you wear makeup. Of cause today teenage girls everywhere have tutorials and how to magazine spreads for days on choosing the right foundation for your skin tone and skin type in 2016. We have come a long way, people ;-)

2.  Matching My Eyeshadow, To My Lipstick, To My Top: So the logical explanation to this makeup monstrosity is the age old rule that everything must match. I blame my mom for matching everything when I was three from my dress to my bag to my shoes! Only joking, love you mom! ;-). Back in the day if I was wearing a mauve pink top, I obviously had to wear mauve pink eyeshadow and a mauve pink lipstick to match and make everything flow into one big pink horror story. I thought I was cool and looked amazing but in reality I looked like a hot mess. Never again! LOL.

3. Wearing A Thick White Pencil Line Across My Top Eyelids: Why was this trend a thing back in the early 2000's? I remember my aunt coming to visit us at our house for the holidays and she was wearing a crisp white pencil line across the top of her eyes where you would place your black winged liner. She recommended the white pencil to me and I of cause went out and got a white and silver pencil too. I would wear this look to church sometimes. God was probably smiling down on me saying '' No Desle, No!''

4. Not Cleaning Up My Eyebrows: For a long time I never gave a second thought to my eyebrows. I always had thick eyebrows so I never thought about filling them in or touching them up. My mom plucked my eyebrows for the first time when I was 17 for my high school matric dance. I nearly cried my eyes out from pain and vowed to never do that again. Well, I'm still sticking to that promise. Any way, I look back at photos now and I could have at least brushed my eyebrows and made them a little neater when I would go out. Thank goodness, that I discovered eyebrow gel, because those suckers keep your brows neat and tidy all day.
5. Not blending my eyeshadows: By now everyone knows that the secret to great eyeshadow looks are all in the blending. Blend till you can't blend no more. Since I didn't invest in makeup brushes back in the day I would use my fingers and those retro eyeshadow sponge applicators to apply all my eyeshadows. The result were harsh eyeshadow lines and angles that would not look flattering on any body. Hell No!

6. Not Wearing Concealer: Why didn't I know that concealer is the magic wand in your makeup bag? I swear my under eye bags and dark circles were crying out for cover.

7. Not Using A Night Cream: Night creams are important! At night your skin rejuvenates itself. You are not in the sun, so your skin can absorb all the nutrients from your nightly skincare routine. You will wake up with a more moisturised and youthful face if you use a good night cream. This would have helped me a lot back at university when I was out late at night partying. Uhmm... for the record mom I was in the library all night studying. Hehe ;-)

8. Licking My Lips: I used to lick my lips a lot when I was younger. It would cause rings around my mouth. It would look really sore and red. I'm talking to you LL Cool J, licking lips is bad for you! Invest in a good moisturising lip balm. You can use a sugar scrub or toothbrush to exfoliate your lips too and get rid of crusty skin.

9. Leave The Hair Gel Alone: Do you guys remember when hair gels and using normal conditioners as leave in conditioners were a thing? Well all that created was product build up and dandruff galore. A big fat NO! I learned to thoroughly wash and rinse out product build up not only on my hair, but brushes too. You scalp will thank you for it.

10. Lastly Don't Forget To Love Yourself: Beauty products are meant to enhance your natural beauty. Not change who you are and make you super insecure about yourself. It's important to take pride in the way you look and look after yourself but not to the extent of trying to erase who you really are. Accept your little imperfections and don't beat yourself down about them. Those things make us unique. 

Hope you enjoyed this post.
Let me know any beauty mistakes you might have committed back in the day. 
We can laugh together ;-)

The Body Shop Reed Diffuser: Vanilla & Tonka Bean And Jasmine & White Frangipani Review

The Body Shop Reed Diffuser:
 Vanilla & Tonka Bean
Jasmine & White Frangipani

Hi Divas!

This is possibly the longest blog post name I have ever had in all my life, Lol! I never blog about decor or items for the home except on the odd candle review. This week I have something very different and out of my comfort zone. I will be attempting to review some lovely decor and fragrance products for the home. I received two lovely reed diffusers by The Body Shop quite a long time ago. I personally love home fragrance diffusers as they keep your rooms smelling fresh and beautiful throughout the day. I love a good smelling home, so I always have scented candles and room sprays on hand to keep the house fragrant. The great thing about reed diffusers are that they give a subtle scent that lingers throughout the house. They last a really long time and you don't have to worry about sprays that may possibly damage fabrics. Reed Diffusers are a great way to set a gorgeous ambiance in your home depending on the fragrance you choose. The Body Shop offers up to 7 different fragrances in their reed diffuser range. I shall be reviewing two of them on the blog today. 

Each diffuser is packaged in a tall rectangular box with a pretty water painting representing the scent it holds. There are 10 reed sticks in each pack along with a vase filled with the fragrance which is held tightly closed by a rubber top. The fragrances are filled with essential oils and Community Fair Trade organically grown soya oil. This is a low maintenance diffuser that is meant to give off an ultra fine fragrance in the room. For best results, remove the rubber stopper from the vase, place all 10 reeds in the essential oils and let it soak. I like to turn the reeds around and place the dry side into the oils, so that the wet side of the reeds can work its magic in the air. The reeds then disperse a soft and beautiful scent. What I like most about The Body Shop diffusers are that the fragrances are not overpowering at all. Some household scents are too strong and can cause headaches or nausea while eating. This one is so light it's comforting and alluring at the same time.

Vanilla & Tonka Bean Reed Diffuser
 The star note in this diffuser is of cause the exotic tonka bean. Tonka Bean is well known for its aromatic fragrances. It smells similar to vanilla but with a hint of spice. This scent is very oriental and leans towards a cinnamon and amber scent with sweet vanilla. In this particular diffuser the mixing of vanilla with the spicy tonka bean gives a gorgeous sweet vanilla with a hint of spice fragrance. It's very unique and so inviting. It is a warm and welcoming scent. This would work great for a living room and bedroom. If you love vanilla scents like I do, then you will definitely love this one. I love it so much that I sometimes pick up the diffuser just to get a good whiff of the reeds. I swear it puts me in a trance. ;-)

Jasmine & White Frangipani Reed Diffuser
Jasmine is one of the most well known scents in aromatherapy and perfumery. It comes all the way from Asia and is a bright and happy fragrance. White Frangipani is a sweet and fruity scent almost tropical like. Mixing these two notes together you get a sweet, fun and feminine fragrance. To me the diffuser smells like an island and reminds me of summer. It is very lady like and might not work for a guy's bachelor flat. It would be perfect in your room or living room during hot summer days. It's stronger than the vanilla and tonka bean diffuser. It definitely gives a lot more punch. 


In conclusion...
The Body Shop Reed Diffusers are a great investment for your home. They are sold at a great price and last for almost half a year. One the box it says that the fragrance lasts only for 8 weeks but my diffusers definitely lasted up to 6 months. They are a great way to keep the home smelling good and they have a classic stylish look that would look good in any decorated room. The best thing about these diffusers are that they are totally recyclable. You could fill your vase up with a new essential oil fragrance or use the vase to display flowers or anything you like. I recommend these to anyone who is looking for a budget friendly diffuser. Have you tried any of these? Let me know below!

Hope you found this review helpful.
Divalicious kisses.
