After Dinner . . . Setlers Mintees


Ever been out for dinner, over-indulged and then uttered the words ''OMG . .I can't move'', or ''I'm carrying a food baby'', or ''I feel so bloated/so full?'' We've all said it at some point in our lives, and to be honest, it really is not a nice feeling to have at the end of a fab night. However . . the established brand Setlers have created an innovative product that aims to combat that horrid feeling.

Setlers Mintees is a mint that is blended with powerful peppermint oil and spearmint, with a soft crumbly centre. This blend of flavours and textures creates a unique taste which not only freshens breath, cleanses the palate, but also avoids the discomfort feeling at the end of a meal.


I have been trialling this product for the past few weeks and I have to say it is pretty good. When I am feeling full, I quickly suck one of these mints and within 30 minutes or so that horrid 'full' feeling soon disappears. However they are quite hard so you wouldn't want to go 'full throttle' and bite on these immediately! My breath feels fresh and I have found it has deterred me away from eating more food.

The mints themselves come in a packet in a box, which great for 2 things; 1) keeps the mints fresh, and 2) the mints are not rolling out of your handbag, which is annoying. The packet contains approximately 10-15 mints which is a decent amount.

Setlers Mintees RRP £1.29/£1.99 (25g/51g pack), and is available from Pharmacies and Supermarkets nationwide.

Did you know:
Almost half (43%) of the UK adult population regularly experience the effects of over-indulgence.

Acne treatment . . .at Sk:n

Source

Helloooooo fellow blog friends

How are we all? Yes, it has been sometime since I last blogged; one has been rather busy with life, college work and etc. Things are starting to settle down (a bit), so I thought I would take the opportunity to do a few blog posts in the meantime. 

If you've been following my blog and I from the very beginning you may know that I have always whinged, moaned about acne. Yep, I am not ashamed to say I do suffer with it, and I'll be honest it does get me down a bit but as I mature . . .I have noticed my skin isn't as bad as it once was (my teenage years were horrendous). I have tried numerous products, all of which have worked for a short period of time until they give up on me and the acne army attacks with a vengeance! At my witts end as to what else to try, I have looked at clinics that specifically have treatments aimed at targeting the acne, once and for all. Somewhat curious I decided to take a look at what Sk:n had to offer as I always heard positive reviews about the company in general. 

Sk:n are currently the UK's largest skin clinic. With treatments ranging from laser hair removal to the minor skin operations, sk:n offer treatments using the latest technology to combat whatever the consumer wishes to have treated. Of course wanting to find out more about the acne treatment, I was impressed to see that 95% of clients have rated the treatment as a 5 star.

 The technology used to combat the acne is Isolaz® which is a high tech laser treatment that is combined with a pore purifying technology; skin is purified from the inside out, giving your complexion a clearer look for longer. https://www.sknclinics.co.uk/isolaz-acne-treatment The procedure is safe, pain free and carried out by a skincare specialist who will ensure your skin is looked after during the procedure. 

The treatments available:
  • Advanced Salicylic Skin Peel | from £105
  • Advanced Pyruvic Skin Peel | from £121
  • Isolaz® treatment | from £130
  • Isolaz® treatment and peel | from £600
It is advisable to book a skin consultation first before commencing treatment. This is so the skin specialist is able to examine your skin before treatment, and plan how many treatments will be needed to treat the acne.


Sk:n specialists have been treating acne for over 20 years. They pride themselves as being the one's who have reinstated the confidence of many of its clients and giving them the happiness they have always wanted in terms of being happy with their skin.

It has been a while . .

Hello all,

WOW . . it sure has been a little while since I blogged. Anyway I thought I would write a quick blog post to say that I am still around (yes, if you follow me on twitter, you may have seen the odd tweet from me here and there). I realise that my blogging seems to have taken somewhat of a backseat lately . . I have become incredibly busy with life . . college, work, few personal issues and just generally chilling out! I am however not completely abandoning my blog altogether, just that for the time being it may be a little quiet over here . .for how long? That I do not know. I will still be reading/commenting on blog posts, tweeting, gawping at youtube videos and etc, just that blog posts from me may be quiet, or somewhat sporadic for a little short while, which I hope you all don't mind. 

Although short, brief but to the point, I'm outta here (as the Americans say). But keep at it, and I shall see ya'll very very soon. :)
