This stamping plate is from the third Bundle Monster set, from 2012. It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp. This is useful, without it it is easy to slice open your fingers and palms which I have been known to do accidentally in the past with other stamping plates.
Four of these are full nail images and two are single images. All stamped well, I like the ribbon image, it is great for awareness nail art designs. You can see all of the designs I have used this plate in here, and some of those are below.

I hadn't tried any of the hand washes from The Body Shop before this one, I actually was working my way through the chocolate orange one from Carex (which smells exactly like Terry's chocolate orange).
The packaging of this works well, it is a plastic bottle with a pump. One pump of the hand wash is enough to wash my hands with, and does leave them feeling clean.
It is creamy and leaves my hands feeling nice, not dried out the way other hand washes can do if you happen to wash your hands too many times. In the same vein I didn't find it left any sort of sticky or oily residue on my hands either.
The scent of this is to me of marzipan, or almonds however you look at it. It reminded me of Smitten hand lotion I used to really like from Lush before it was discontinued. Another Lush product, Snow Cake soap smells quite similar, along with the limited edition perfume.
Overall this is a nice hand wash for those who like almond / marzipan scents as well as wanting a more moisturising hand wash. It is a bit expensive for hand wash at £5 for 250ml however The Body Shop often have 50% off deals.

This liquid lipstick is a muted pink, nude colour, similar to the marsala panetone colour for 2015, possibly a dupe for Lime Crime Riot. This only needed one coat to achieve full opacity. It did need setting though, I dabbed some translucent powder over the top to help with that. Without using the powder I found it didn't fully dry and was very tacky and would stick to itself as I put my lips together. With the powder it is fine and does last for hours.
The applicator is a traditional straight doe foot type.
