Pout Of Approval: Phoenix Jayy

  I’ve always been attracted to anything that sparkles, but even if you’re not a ‘magpie’ like me, let’s face it, we all need a bit of ‘razzle dazzle’ in our lives at times.

IF Cleopatra was around today, she wouldn’t be bathing in milk, but in this amazing Abahna bath oil.   Fit for a goddess, this product quite frankly has transformed my bathing routine, turning it from something very ordinary into the sublime. Like most ladies, I love a good soak in the tub and have in the past opted for any kind of bubble bath or bath oil that’s been lying
