Ralph Lauren - Ralph vs Chi Chi Watermelon Fragrance

Hello again lovely people I have another post coming your way and this ones a good one. If you're a fan of the Ralph fragrance by Ralph Lauren you know the one that we all had as a teen thats in the little blue bottle? well have I found something for you! Browsing the Chi Chi stand in Target as I do I decided to smell the entire range of fragrances that they have and then I cam across the Watermelon fragrance. It smells exactly the same as the Ralph scent! Now as someone who adores the Ralph scent but not the price tag I was so happy to discover this. If you ever get the chance to have a sniff of this one then definitely do and at only $19.95 its a total steal. I would say that the Ralph fragrance is stronger and has a longer lasting time on the skin but thats probably the only difference between the two!

Have you tried either of these fragrances?

DIY Brown Sugar and Coconut Body Scrub

I promised my body scrub recipe and I am delivering it to you! Now keep in mind this isn't some really fancy scrub that's going to stop your skin from ageing or help with any skin issues that you might have but it will keep your skin soft and smooth and that is good enough for me!

You Will Need...


Put it all in the jar and mix! That is literally all you need to do, then you can enjoy the amazing smelling scrub that you now have!

I tend to use this scrub if I'm shaving my legs as it just gets rid of all the dead skin leaving you with a nice smooth surface to then shave on top of.

Even my dog loves it...

If you try this out please let me know!!

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - A Not So Good Update

In my September Favourites I added the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes which I was using on and off for a few weeks in the month of September. Obviously because it was a favourites I said that I was loving them because of how easily they removed my makeup which is still very true. However when I bought a new pack of them they have really begun to irritate the hell out of my eyes.

I have sensitive eyes to begin with so I need have a good routine with my products so I don't end up with the whole watery eye situation that can happen. I have nothing against the way these remove makeup because they do an amazing job, I just wont be using them around my eyes anymore purely because of how much it stings and how sore the skin around my eyes has gotten.

Once this packet is finished I wont be re purchasing them, and these are probably the last thing that I'll try from the Neutrogena brand Every time I use one of their products I seem to have this problem so its not worth it for me anymore. If these work well for you please let me know, they just don't work well for me.

Garnier Beauty Oil & Scrub Review

Hello lovely people I have a review for you today on something that kind of got me a little excited when I first saw it, and that is the new Beauty Oil range from Garnier! Now I am a sucker for anything 'on trend' and oils are definitely on trend right now. With all the coconut oils and macadamia oils flying around its hard to know what actually works, and seeing as Garnier have just come out with their own I thought I'd share my thoughts on them!

Garnier Beauty Oil Body Scrub

The scrub is what I was most excited for purely because I have really weird skin on my legs that can be really dry at times so having a scrub with oil built in just felt like a real winner for me. Firstly I need to talk about the smell of these products because they both smell amazing and I mean like warm and sugary and just really nice I'm terrible with scents can you tell? *sarcasm* The scent isn't the reason that I wanted to try these well not the whole reason the scrub goes on the skin really nicely and isn't a really harsh exfoliator which is great for sensitive irritated skin. As far as the oil part of this product goes, I didn't really notice it if I'm completely honest. Well not as much as if I were too make my own body scrub, which reminds me! Would you guys like to see a super easy recipe for a body scrub that I make that smells yum and really nourishes your skin once exfoliated? Because I really want to show you how I make it, anyways back onto the product! Overall I wouldn't say this is incredible at hydrating your skin but it does work well as a gentle exfoliator.

Garnier Beauty Oil

Now if I'm completely honest I bought the Beauty Oil because there was a deal going if you bought it with the scrub, so I wasn't super keen on buying it purely because the thought of spraying oil on my body is not appealing. However I am pleasantly surprised, the spray nozzle is actually really nice and disperses the product really well on the skin which I then rub in. It is also non greasy for an oil and while it claims to dry instantly it does take a little bit of time to absorb, which I knew would happen because its an oil right? Not too sure how moisturising it actually is because I've been using the scrub more then oil because I keep forgetting to use it... It does leave your skin super smooth after use though which is always a plus AND it smells amazing!

Overall this range wasn't something to twist and shout about but it does work quite well, will I buy it again once finished? I'm not too sure, we'll see when and if that time comes.

P.S In the time that I wrote this post I decided that I will post my Cocount Body Scrub Recipe because its amazing and needs to be spread out into the world!

Things are changing...

Things are changing here on I.G.S.N, the first being that it is no longer going to be called Imma Go Shop Now. I've changed all my social media handles to Elizabeth Makeup Artist to make it easier for people to find me and also to slowly start building a brand well sort of...

So don't worry the same old girl behind the I.G.S.N name still exists she's just having a makeover!
