Num Noms Mystery Make Up Surprise – What’s in the Box?

Num Noms Mystery Make Up Surprise – What’s in the Box?

*We were gifted a selection of Num Noms products for the purpose of this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. 

 

Num Noms are fast becoming a favourite in this house. Our eldest daughter especially loves the colourful, sweet-smelling boxes of fun. Our latest Num Noms review products were the Mystery Make Up Surprise bottles. On unwrapping the bottle, inside you’ll find a mini make up product that aren’t just cute but smell amazing. Each bottle has its own mini lip gloss too.

Our girls have their own dressing tables and so products like this go down a storm. Once they realised that there was make up inside each bottle, they were very excited.  They keep them on their dressing tables and love to play dress up with their very own make up products. Our bottles included perfume, body lotion and nail polish – each one a massive hit!

Mystery Make Up Surprise –

For a while now our big girl has taken a huge amount of interest in my make up bag. She wants to know what I’m using, why I’m using it and if she can use it herself! Needless to say, I don’t send my child out with a face full of make up. I do however think that giving them their own, toned down make up products is a good way to introduce them to the world of beauty.

The perfume is a very subtle and sweet smell. It isn’t at all over powering, and so it’s perfect for the littles to wear when they’re getting themselves ready. It gives them the freedom to feel grown up and independent, without their childhood getting left by the wayside. They love the colourful little characters too!

The body lotion is very similar, in that it has a soft, fresh scent. As a parent I’m completely happy with our girls using these products, as they have found the perfect way to make the emphasis on beauty fun, without enforcing expectations on how we should look on the kids.

Again, the nail polish in this range is ideal for the ages it is aimed at. It is a very light pink, with a shimmer of glitter to add a bit of sparkle. The girls get to have fun applying polish to their nails and wearing it, but it doesn’t stand out too much. The ideal balance has been reached for both parent and child!

Num Noms make up surprise has been and will continue to be a huge hit over here. I want our girls to explore every aspect of their personality and these products allow them to do so. What I love most about them is how subtle the colours and scents are. This is a big positive and is the reason I will continue to buy Mystery Make Up Surprise for our girls. Anything that keeps both the kids and parents happy has to championed!

Poopsie Slime Surprise Review

Poopsie Slime Surprise Review

*We were provided with samples of Poopsie Slime Surprise for the purpose of this review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own.

 

If your children are like mine, then the title of this post is all they will need to hear to love it. As soon as I mention the world ‘slime’ in our house, both girls know there’ll be a gooey, sticky mess for them to enjoy. That’s why I just didn’t have it in me to turn down a review of the new Poopsie Slime Surprise, my littles would never have forgiven me. I must admit, I was a little curious too, unicorns and slime sounds like a very magical combination after all!

Poopsie Slime Surprise is available to buy at Smyths, The Entertainer and Argos and is priced at £9.99. It’s the ideal stocking filler, or birthday gift for the kids. At that price, it’s a go to present for when the kids deserve a little treat too. It comes with all of the ingredients you needs to make sweet-smelling, sparkly unicorn poop that’s sure to keep the kids happy and entertained for many slimy hours!

 

 

What do we think –

As my girls are still a little on the younger side, I decided to make the slime up myself. It comes with all of the slime ingredients attached to the outside of the packet, whilst the mixing and storing equipment is fastened inside. I found the instructions really easy to follow and had the mixture made up in no time. The girls’ could help with some of the shaking up too which they thoroughly enjoyed.

After leaving the slime to set, it was time to add the ‘unicorn magic’, which when kneaded into the mixture changes the colour and adds a little sparkle! The girls could help with this part of the slime creation too, they were soon elbow deep in green slime! The bit I liked most about the creation process is that you are provided with a little bottle of scent, which makes the slime smell really nice. This means your hands don’t get covered with the usual, odd smell that comes with slime making.

 

 

As soon as my two got stuck into the slime, they were absolutely mesmerised. This slime is really sticky and gooey, so they were able to squash it and stretch it until their little hearts were content. They had a lot of fun and were absolutely covered in it by the time they had finished, as was my dining room table!

You’ll be pleased to know though, that this slime cleans up really easily. It came right out of their clothes after a spin through the washer. It wiped off of my table with ease and it also washed off of the girls hands with very little effort. For that reason I give this product a big thumbs up. I’ve had to remove stuck on slime far too often in my parenting career and this was a refreshing clean up in comparison! This set also comes with a mini key ring that you can store the slime in, so when the kids have had enough it doesn’t just get left to dry out.

Overall, the girls and I have been super impressed with Poopsie Slime Surprised. They aren’t words that I’d ever thought would come out of my mouth, but it was easy, fun and the girls had a blast!
