Soap & Glory Bright + Beautiful Party Recovery Radiance Boosting Mask Review

Soap & Glory Bright + Beautiful Party Recovery Radiance Boosting Mask Review

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Even though I have not been feeling my best lately, I thought it was time to write a little review about a sheet mask that  I have tried out. As nothing can feel as relaxing  as a sheet mask when you are not feeling or looking your best.

I found this mask when I was over in England in Boots in October. When I found this one I could not resist buying this. Unfortunately I cannot remember how much the price was, but I believe there was a discount on it. All though I must say I would have bought this one without the discount, as my love for Soap and Glory goes far and beyond.  Their marketing is always on point!

If at that time I would have brought a bigger suitcase, I would have come back with a lot more goodies but that is another story. Curious about my thoughts and opinions, continue reading!


Thumbs up for 

Moisturizing feeling, a lot of liquid was in the mask ( And there was still liquid in the packaging when taking out the mask)

Face felt refreshed and indeed more radiant after use. Maybe that is why it would be suited after a night out in town!

Smell  I cannot recollect how it smelled. But it smelled good. Very fresh yet sort floral.

Packaging as always, unique and with a retro feel.

Thumbs down for 

Sticky feeling after applications.

Flimsy mask, it felt very breakable when applying therefor making application hard.

Overall thoughts and opinions

I really liked this mask. And to be honest, I cannot remember a mask I have not really liked except for the Dr Hoogebrand one.  This mask was very enjoyable to wear on  the face only I would say the application was a bit of a pain. I do believe this has been the most expensive mask in the drugstore category that I have tried  to use.  So maybe in that area it might not be everyone’s cup off tea. But I would say that a Soap and Glory fan will try this and I would say it is a worth a shot.

Until next post friends!

Thumbs 2015 unfavorites

Thumbs 2015 unfavorites

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Welcome back to Thumelinaslifestyle! About 3 weeks ago, I published my Thumbs 2016 favorites. As we all know, life does not consist out of just favorite things  so here are my unfaves for 2016.  Products/things I would not even recommend to my worst enemies. So lets get started.


Make up

  • Soap and Glory Pucker up lipgloss. I have not written about this before but I don’t like the sensation  of putting a vibrator to my lips. Very uncomfortable. I just don’t like the sensation on my lips.
  • Catrice Absolute Matte palete.  Unpigmented  shadows with quick fading effect.
  • Etos Mascara all in one  and Etos Mascara in Mega Volume. These are really the worst mascara’s for 2015. Etos has a lot of nice products but these are not one of them. These mascara’s are very flaky.


  • Nivea in shower moisturiser. Mentioned in my unfavorites before. Do I need to mention this again. Vile chemical smell.


  • Herome nail polish click here to read about that disaster

Eventhough this post has a negative ring to it , I hoped you enjoyed it. For my 2015 favorites click here. Please share any thoughts on your unfaves for 2015 and if you want to be informed when I post something new, follow me via or Until next post folks!



Thumbs Review: Soap and Glory Righteous Body butter

Thumbs Review: Soap and Glory Righteous Body butter

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Today I am back with another review on a product, that I have a feeling that it will land in my 2016 favorites.  It is all about Soap and Glory’s Righteous Body Butter.  Yes I know it is early, but personally I think it is better than the Bodyshops Body Butters. Which I still love.


This body butter is so much more creamier and /buttery  than the Body shop one. It leaves my skin so soft and does not cause an allergic reaction to my skin.  Also the smell, it smells so fresh and clean . It is so hard to describe the smell of this  body butter. It smells very similar as the  Clean on me Shower gel from Soap and Glory, just more intense! Also when I use this body butter, I don’t feel the need to use a perfume because you can smell this body butter all day long. Soo good!  I can imagine that this would work well with the Live perfume from Jenifer Lopez.

I would definitely repurchase this Body Butter once I am back in the UK.

For all you lovely UK residents, Soap and Glorry is having a competition to win the following:


Check out soap and GLORY”s website for more details.

Maybe a quick notice! This competition closes on the 11th of February  at 1700 hours!. Guess what I would be doing if I was a UK resident and I could enter.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, and as always feel free to leave a comment.



Soap and Glory Big She Bang Limited Edition Kit

Soap and Glory Big She Bang Limited Edition Kit

Hello dear readers and loyal subbies,

Yeeh I am back with a new Blog Post and I could not  be more excited to write about this kit. When I saw this kit in Boots, I could not resist it. I just love Soap and Glory and I fell in love  with the cosmetic bag and the design of it. Also I could not believe that this kit cost 30 pounds instead off 60 pounds. Such great value! and looking at the products most of them are full size.

So let me share with you the content.

This kit contains 7 body products and 2 make up products. Also  you get this fun/ kitch cosmetic case.

  • SOAP & GLORY  CLEAN ON ME  Moisture Shower Gel
  • SOAP & GLORY  HAND FOOD Hand Cream
  • SOAP & GLORY THICK & FAST  High-Definition Collagen-Coat Mascara
  • SOAP & GLORY  PEACHES & CLEAN  4-in-1 Wash Off Deep Cleansing Milk
  • SOAP & GLORY THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER  Instant Sunkissed Tint Body Lotion
  • SOAP & GLORY  SEXY MOTHER PUCKER  Lip Gloss in pink shade Rose & Shine.

I think this kit is great to try new things out from Soap and Glory. The only item I used from this kit is the  Soap & Glory Clean on me. Which I love! Also I have never tried any make up from Soap and Glory so I am very curious . If you can afford this it is a great gift for Christmas or for yourself.

Do you have any Soap and Glory recommendations to try out? What are your faves? If you like to read more posts like these, please subscribe via BlogLovin or WordPress. Until next time and hope to see you back soon to







Thumbs September Empties!

Thumbs September Empties!

Hello dear readers and loyal subbies,

It is October and this month, I have some empties from September! Somehow I managed to collect some empties. Still I am very surprised that it is that little as it is. In my weird little mind, I used a lot! So lets get through my bag off empties!


  • Clinique Repair wear laser focus eye cream. This is a wrinkle correcting eye cream. I am very sad this is, in my empties. I thought it really worked and now I am like, hey am I getting more wrinkles? Which would be such a big no no! Must repurchase!
  •  Etos Night Cream . This cream I used to really like. Now I am sort  of re-querying it. I think because I am getting older my skin demand has changed. So it is not doing miracles for my skin. Which is ok, but it means I need to find something else.


  • Vaseline Moisture locking cream. Errg I love Vaseline, but this one did not really work for me. It was hard rubbing it in the skin, and I did not like poking my fingers in the cream. Which is strange because I love my Body Shop Butter, and I do poke my fingers in there.
  • Soap and Glory  Clean on me shower gel. A must to repurchase. This smells so clean and it has a built in body lotion. Which is nice . Again another must repurchase.
  • Etos Tooth paste cool mint.



  •  Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara . Still my fave mascara however going back to Maybeline the Rocket as I do have some good memory of this mascara
  •  Garnier  BB cream in fair.  This is my fave BB cream. The only thing  with this  BB Cream is, that its not really suitable for Light skin because I still think it is quite dark for my skin, but somehow I made it work. But I will repurchase mostly likely in spring/ summer.


  • Etos Nail polish remover . Good remover and yeesh repurchase as my current remover is crap.


  •  Cotton pads
  • Tea trea oil

April Empties + mini reviews

April Empties + mini reviews

My dear dear readers,

Welcome back to Thumbelinaslifestyle it is May and another month has gone and passed. I am soooo excited for this month, a lot of exciting of things are going to happen but for now let ‘s go through my little brown bag full of goodies. Somehow I have a lot of items to share with you all.



  • Sebastian Thickefy Foam. For people with fine thin hair (like me) this product is great. The product thickened my hair enormously after I washed and blow dried my hair.
  • Cameleo permanent hair color cream in dark brown. Love this hair colouring and for the price its super. Especially for girls on a budget. We all want to look good but don’t want to be scraping the barrel at the end of the month.



  • Mac Fix Plus. I only have good things to say about this product. I love the feeling when I spritz this on my face so refreshing. Also it does make your make up last longer.
  • Max Factor Clump defy mascara in black. Some people claim that this mascara is a dupe for the Cover Girl clump crusher. Even though I have never tried the Cover girl mascara, I have to write, I don’t like this mascara. I thought I liked this mascara but every day I came home I had residue or flaking underneath my eyes.
  • Catrice Glamour Doll Curl &Volume Mascara. Urgg the rant continues. Could not believe I had this mascara in my beauty case. Needed to get rid of it plus it dried out completely.
  • Lobello Pearly shine lip balm. This lip balm was ok however this balm did not work for me when I had chapped lips. The shine doubles the effect of chapped lips.
  • Max Factor False lash effect mascara in black. Need I write more, I have been loving this mascara for a while now. Thank god I have a back -up mascara.Please Max Factor don’t discontinue this mascara.
  • Super Drug Nourishing Nail remover pads.My thoughts are still the  same good item for purse. This in case of emergencies.
  • Catrice Made to stay Inside Eye highlighter pen. This product seemed to work for the first view weeks but afterwards it seemed to dry up and the product did not function anymore.



  • Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. I love this revitalizing body wash. Such a shame that no drugstore in Holland stocks it. I might have found a similar and cheaper body wash. But still  I wouldn’t mind a store that sells it.
  • Soap & Glory  Smoothie Breakfast Scrub. Love the smell and the effect it has on my body. Read all about this in my  lazy day blog.  Love love  this scrub
  • Van der Hoog Yummy Yogurt face mask. This was the first time I used this face mask and boy was this nice. The smell is sooo fresh and it does make my face feel so soft. Since I loved this mask I restocked this mask. Hmm might have a little mask time this Sunday.
  • Oral B floss. It was just floss only pity I could not finish the product as I could not get the floss out in the end.
  • Super Drug blended tea oil. Aaha the love affair continues. This product is amazeballs and helps against spots or other little skin issues

For last months blog click here. I hope you all liked my empties and hope to see you soon in my next blog . At the moment I am  busy with writing a review
