Belvita Breakfast Biscuits

Being a busy mum on the go, with 2 little ones to feed, It's rare i get 5 minutes to sit down and eat breakfast, so when asked if I would like to review Belvita breakfast biscuits I, obviously, said yes.

I was sent the new Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch.
A new variant that has just been launched, consisting of two crunchy Breakfast Biscuits sandwiched together by a creamy live yogurt filling.  It provides a source of calcium and is the only biscuit in the UK to contain live yogurt cultures. The Belvita Breakfast Yogurt Crunch is made with five wholegrains, is rich in cereals, provides a source of fibre and calcium and contains a selection of vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, calcium, magnesium and iron.

It is important to eat Belvita as part of a balanced breakfast and is recommended that it is eaten along with a portion of fruit, a plain yogurt and a hot drink (tea or coffee), or juice.

I like to enjoy my Belvita with a glass of cold apple juice, and a variety of fruits, including apple, orange, or grapes. If eating with orange or grapes i prepare the night before once my little lovely's are in bed and store in the fridge in a sealed container, ready to eat in the morning rush.

Well it wasn't just a big hit with me, but also Jack who would eat his own breakfast and them come over for a Belvita too. Now we walk down the biscuit isle and he spots them and gets excited trying to reach out for them out of the trolley. For those who aren't aware Jack is 18 months.

The biscuit is delicious, and I would liken it to a digestive, but nicer and the yogurt filling was really creamy and really compliments the biscuit.

This is a breakfast that now features regulary on my shopping list, as it's tasty, quick, and something I can even eat on the school run, or on our way to toddlers.

It retails for around £2.50 or less for 8 biscuits and is available from morrisons, sainsburys, asda and tesco.

Try them, you will be pleasantly surprised, Loren x

Have a very merry Schwartz christmas

If you're looking for some last minute, delicious recipes then here are a few from Schwartz. Our personal favourites are the tree biscuits, although only a few make it onto the tree as they are so delicious. We've also given them as gifts to Eva's class friends, and My best friend.

·         450g (1lb) plain flour

·         2 tsp baking powder

·         4 tsp Schwartz Ginger Ground

·         2 tsp Schwartz Cinnamon Ground

·         Schwartz Sea Salt Mill

·         200g (7oz) caster sugar

·         250g (9oz) unsalted butter, diced

·         4 tbs golden syrup

·         1 large egg, beaten

Hang these tasty Ginger and Cinnamon flavoured biscuits from the Christmas tree.

How to:

1.       Sift the flour, baking powder, Schwartz Ginger and Cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Season with a little Schwartz Sea Salt.

2.       Add the sugar and butter and rub in with your fingers until the butter is absorbed and the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

3.       Mix the golden syrup and egg together and then stir into the mixture with a wooden spoon. Bring together with your hands and knead very gently to form a smooth, stiff dough. Shape into a ball and cover in clingfilm. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to firm up.

4.       Pre-heat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, Gas Mark 4.

5.       Remove the dough from the refrigerator and cut into quarters, allowing you to work with each quarter at a time. Keep the remaining dough in the refrigerator until you are ready to roll it.

6.       Roll out the dough to a thickness of approx. 3mm and cut into festive shapes.

7.       Place the biscuits onto baking sheets lined with greaseproof paper.

8.       Bake the biscuits for 12-14 minutes until golden brown, remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.

9.       Using a wooden skewer, make a small hole in each biscuit whilst they are still warm.

10.   Once completely cooled, decorate as desired, tie a ribbon through the hole and hang on the tree.

Cook's Notes
These biscuits can be kept in an airtight container for up to 1 week. This recipe makes approx. 75-80 biscuits, which may seem a lot but there will be plenty to hang on the tree, for the children to nibble on, and even more to wrap up in lovely Christmas film and give to friends and family.

We have made this a couple of times using half the quantities of the ingredients, and there has still been plenty to go around. Definitely worth a try as a truly yummy treat.

·         Oranges, lemons or limes
·         Masking tape
·         Toothpicks or wooden skewers
·         1 jar Schwartz Whole Cloves (will cover approx. 2-3 pieces of fruit)
·         2 Schwartz Cinnamon Sticks
·         2 Schwartz Star Anise Whole
·         2 Schwartz Nutmeg Whole
·         Ribbon
Pomanders make excellent fragrant festive decorations and are great for Christmas gifts.
How to:
1.       Use masking tape to mark out where you want to tie the ribbon on the fruit - oranges look great with a criss-cross formation, lemons and limes work well with ribbon tied around the middle of the fruit.
2.       Then, using the toothpick or wooden skewer, pierce evenly spaced holes into the surface of the fruit around the masking tape and insert the Schwartz Cloves. Leave a small gap between each one as the fruit will shrink when dried.
3.       When the surface of the fruit is covered with Schwartz Cloves, remove the masking tape and place onto a wire rack.
4.       Put Schwartz Cinnamon Sticks, Star Anise and Whole Nutmeg onto a baking tray and place the wire rack on top. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 130°C, 275°F, Gas Mark 1 for about 4-5 hours, or until the fruit has darkened and dried out.
5.       Alternatively, place the fruit in a paper bag and pop in a warm airing cupboard for 3-4 weeks to dry out.
6.       Allow the pomander to cool, then wrap the ribbon around the gap left by the masking tape. Tie in a bow or loop for hanging.
Cook's Notes
Your pomanders will look great in a coloured bowl, decorated with the Schwartz Cinnamon Sticks, Whole Nutmeg and Star Anise. Why not try brushing them with some gold dust for a beautiful sparkle.
This is a fun activity to do with little ones that will leave your house smelling beautiful and festive. Also make great handmade gifts for family and friends.

·         100g (4oz) self-raising flour

·         50g (2oz) fresh white breadcrumbs

·         50g (2oz) ground almonds

·         275g (10oz) soft dark brown sugar

·         75g (3oz) suet

·         225g (8oz) raisins

·         225g (8oz) currants

·         225g (8oz) sultanas


·         50g (2oz) flaked almonds

·         1 tsp Schwartz Cinnamon Ground

·         ½ tsp Schwartz Nutmeg Ground

·         ½ tsp Schwartz Coriander Ground

·         ½ tsp Schwartz Allspice Ground

·         ½ tsp salt

·         3 medium eggs

·         3 tbs brandy

·         150ml (¼ pint) brown ale

·         3 x 0.5 litre pudding bowls

This deliciously spiced, moist and fruity, home-made Christmas pudding is really simple to make. The recipe is enough for 3 puddings and, if you can resist eating them all over the festive season, they do freeze really well.

How to:

1.       To prepare the pudding basins, grease them really well and line the bottom of each one with a small square of greased greaseproof paper.

2.       Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the brandy and brown ale.

3.       Combine the fruit mixture with the egg mixture and stir well. Spoon equally into the prepared basins and cover each with a circle of greaseproof paper. Top each basin with a large square of pleated greaseproof paper and secure well with string. Make a handle with a double length piece of string and tie securely through both ends.

4.       Place each pudding in a separate steamer or large saucepan with an upturned saucer inside, and pour in enough boiling water to come half-way up the sides of the basins.

5.       Steam for 2-2½ hours, topping up with more boiling water when necessary. Remove and set aside to cool. Replace the greaseproof paper with fresh, ready for re-steaming, and store in a cool dry place.

6.       On the day of serving, re-steam the pudding, as above, for 1-2 hours. Alternatively, pierce the greaseproof paper and re-heat in the microwave on full power for 2-2½ minutes, or until piping hot throughout.

7.       Remove the greaseproof paper, place a plate on top of the basin and turn upside down. Shake the pudding gently to release onto the plate.

8.       To flame, simply heat 2 tbs brandy in a small saucepan and light before pouring over the pudding immediately.
Cook's Notes
You can make your pudding anywhere up to 6 months in advance of Christmas. This recipe makes 3 puddings, each serving 4-6 people - that's one for Christmas Day, one to wrap up as a gift and one for unexpected visitors over the Christmas season, or you can keep it for Easter if you can resist it that long!

·         75cl bottle red wine

·         200ml (7fl oz) orange juice

·         3 tbs brown sugar

·         150ml (¼ pint) brandy(optional)

·         1 orange, sliced

1.       Place the wine, orange juice, sugar and Schwartz Mulled Wine Spice sachets in a large saucepan.

2.       Heat to just below boiling point and hold this temperature for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3.       Remove sachets.  Stir in brandy and orange slices then serve.

I will be making this Christmas eve to truly get into the Christmas spirit, but must remember not to drink too much so that I don't spend Christmas day hungover.

Have a very merry Christmas, from all at Schwartz x

Tefal Sensorielle Range

I was sent the fantastic new Tefal Sensorielle non-stick frying pan to review, and must say I am so impressed. I've had various non stick pans before, and well, none have lived up to my expectations.
The Senorielle range boasts of a new patented non-scratch coating, a new anti-warp base, copper particles that distribute heat evenly across the pan, and Tefals Ultimium non-stick coating allowing oil free cooking.

Upon opening the pan, at first glances i was impressed, but from looking I couldn't tell what it was going to be like when it came to cooking. On the packaging it says to wash in warm soapy water and give it a light coating of oil before the first use. So after doing this i decided i'd cook a cheese omlette. Whenever I cook and omlette, no matter how much oil i use, i am always left with some of it stuck to the pan, so with only using this thin coating of oil I was dubious, and was expecting it to stick.
Well i am still shocked at the fact that nothing I cook has yet stuck to the pan, even when not washed straight away, food that i would usually have to scrub to get off, just came off with a gentle rub.
I know need to purchase all of the pans in the sensorielle range, as i am that impressed.

The Sensorielle range is the first cookware to use Tefal’snew Intensium coating. Intensium is an extra hard mineral base layer which is fused to the other layers, including a visibleholographic layer. Intensium provides the ultimate scratch-resistant surface, designed to withstand the most rigorous use and even resistant when using metal utensils.
The range also features Tefal’s high quality,lifetime guaranteed (for the lifetime of the pan) Ultimium non-stick coating, which enables you to cook without oil – perfect for a low-fat kitchen. The range isdishwasher safe, easy to clean and compatible with electric and gas hobs.

I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of any new pans, the rrp starts from £19, and increases with pan size, but this is a product that I really think will last and will be well worth the money.
They can be bought from a range of online retailers including

A huge 5/5 from us :-D

Here in the Lorens Little Lovelys household we are HUGE fans of the fantastic range of Schwartz cooking products.We use their simple to use packet mixes, that make a scrumptious meal everytime, aswel as their jars or various herbs and spices.
To name just a few of the products we have used recently are:

-Garlic granules-fantastic for any recipe that requires garlic. 1/4 of a teaspoon is the equivalent to 1 clove of garlic, which is so simple to measure out, far less messy then chopping or pressing fresh garlic, plus Schwartz garlic granules don't start sprouting.

-Medium curry powder-We love curry in our family, once every week or every 2 weeks we have my parents over, and I do a homemade curry, with Schwartz medium curry powder I simply add my chicken, 2 tins of tomatoes, half a teaspoon of garlic granules, a chopped onion, and of course 1 tablespoon of Schwartz medium curry powder and leave to cook. Done in the slow cooker the chicken, beef or lamb becomes so tender, it simply crumbles in your mouth, but if you don't have a slow cooker fear not, it can also be done in a large pan on the hob.

-The fantastic perfect shake range- i've been using garlic italian to make delicious homemade pasta sauce, classic bbq to flavour steak and extra spicy cajun is particulary yummy when doing my spicy chicken pitta breads.

-Flavourful lamb casserole is- just divine, and again I do this in the slow cooker, meaning I can use cheaper cuts of meat, but the end result being fantastic taste and texture.

-Chilli con carne packet mix- Again this is something me or my mom cook every week or every 2 weeks, and is another easy to make yummy, and very filling meal. Chilli is also Eva's favourite food. I often do chilli in the slow cooker aswel(how did i ever live without it), but before i used to cook in a large pan. Simply fry off mince meat, add the meat, an onion, a tin of kidney beans(we add 2 as we love them), 2 tins of tomatoes, a little bit of water and cook. Yummy served with rice and garlic bread.

-Schwartz slow cooker range- which consists of Beef and tomato casserole, Chicken curry, Chicken in red wine and Sausage and bean casserole, all of which are truly delicious, nothing better then walking in from the school run or work to the smell of your tea all ready to be dished up.

-Schwartz mills-We find the Black peppercorns and Sea salt are perfect for flavouring food to taste, both in cooking and at the table.

The Schwartz ranges are so vast that there is something for everyone, from the inexperienced to the professional cook.
Morrisons currently have Schwartz packet mixes on offer, buy 2 for £1.50, so why not head down and get cooking something delicious today.

Kent & Fraser Gluten Free Cookies, Biscuits and Shortbread

I was sent Kent & Frasers Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lemon Butter Shortbread, and Spicy Ginger Crunch Biscuits to review.

I was eager to try these out, as I have a friend who has to eat a Gluten Free Diet, and also I have a few friends with children who have allergies and are on gluten free, dairy free and egg free diets.
These Kent & Fraser biscuits are available in waitroses "free-from" isle.

Kent & Fraser are setting new and higher standards in the world of ‘free-from’ baked goods in their mission to ensure that everyone from foodies to those with food allergies will be able to enjoy their delicious biscuits, cookies and shortbread.

I will be honest, and even after having read the info on these bicuits i was a bit dubious as to how they would taste, as having tasted myself, and heard from others some free from foods don't live up to the expectations of my taste buds.

Firstly i tried the chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate Chip Cookies − a delicious mix of butter, muscovado sugar and a very generous smattering of rich, delicious chocolate chips. Contains no eggs, wheat or gluten.
These didn't taste like any other biscuits i've tried before, but they were really really yummy. They were buttery, and sweet, but not overly sweet, and the chocolate chips really complemented the biscuit.

Next i tried the lemon butter shortbread.
Lemon Butter Shortbread − this melt-in-your-mouth crumbly shortbread is a flavour sensation of rich sweetness and sharp lemon. Free from eggs, soya, wheat or gluten.
I am a huge fan of shortbread, and this was no exception. The shortbread was buttery and as advertised literally melts in your mouth. The lemon flavouring is perfect, not too sharp as to take away from the buttery sweet shortbread, but just enough to get your taste buds tingling.

Lastly i tried the spicy ginger crunch biscuits.
Spicy Ginger Crunch – a crunchy combination of sugar and spice and made with real stem ginger. Sweetest of all, these biscuits have no eggs, dairy, soya, wheat or gluten.
These were delicious, very crunchy, and you can really taste the ginger and the spice, and is just sweet enough, Kent & Fraser have definately got the balance of the ginger, sugar and spice just right. This is definately going to be a favourite biscuit this winter, perfect for an after school snack on the cold darks afternoons, or as a yummy pudding.

Kent & Fraser’s founder John Selby, says:
“Traditionally gluten-free food has been focused more on functionality than flavour which is a real trade off. Our aim is to develop deliciously clever gluten-free and wheat free cookies, biscuits and shortbread that are perfect in texture, made from 100% natural produce and most importantly taste fantastic."

These biscuits are available from Waitrose, and retail at around £2.29. Yes it is expensive, but unfortunately free from foods do cost more, as more goes into making them. Are they worth the money...Yes. Especially if you or a family member do have food allergies/intollerances. Perfect for an any time treat, for little ones, for parents and even for the grandparents.

To see the full range, or for more information visit

We give these biscuits a big 5/5, and will be buying them again.

Schwartz slow cooker mixes-Chicken in Red Wine(suitable for all the family)-review

With winter coming, Schwartz have developed a range of slow cooker mixes, so we can enjoy yummy winter warmer teas, without slaving away at the cooker all day. How about coming in from work, or the school run, and smelling the delicious aromas of your tea, all ready to be dished up.

The Schwartz slow cooker range consists of Beef and Tomato Casserole, Chicken Curry, Chicken in Red Wine, and Sausage and Bean Casserole.

We were lucky enough to sample these, and i can say, they are simply delicious, and make a yummy tea for all the family.
All you have to do it put all the ingredients into the your slow cooker in the morning(i prepare any veg the night before), turn it on, and leave it to work its magic.

All the sachets have a list of ingredients on the back, but i love the fact that you can add or change anything you don't like, or just fancy adding.

For the Chicken in Red Wine:

10 shallots, peeled
125g (5oz) button mushrooms
8 skinless chicken thighs or drumsticks, trimmed of fat
250g (9oz) bacon, sliced and cooked  
1 sachet Schwartz Slow Cookers Chicken in Red Wine Recipe Mix
300ml (½ pint) water
2 tbs tomato purée 

1. Place the shallots, mushrooms, chicken and bacon into your slow cooker pot.

2. Blend the sachet contents with the water and tomato purée, and add to the slow cooker pot. Stir through. 

3. Cover and cook for 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW, or until the meat is tender and cooked through.  (Keep covered during cooking.  Cooking times vary between slow cooker models.)

4. Remove the lid, stir through and stand for 5 minutes before serving. 

5. Delicious served with roast potatoes and fresh vegetables. 

I used chicken breast to make this, and as I don't like bacon or cooked mushrooms, I just cooked with shallots, and served with roast potatoes, broccoli and green beans.

Come tea time, all i had to do was pop some roast potatoes into the oven(i used frozen ones) and put the vegetables onto boil, leaving free the valuable after school time, to spend with Eva catching up on what she's done at school, and trying to keep her awake as shes always so tired in the evenings, as opposed to in the kitchen cooking.
A really easy tea, that was really flavoursome, and a hit with all the family. I am now wondering how i ever managed without a slow cooker until now. You could even serve with chips/ jacket potatoe/ new potatoes or anything that takes your fancy.

It is definately worth a try, you never know, it might become a firm family favourite.

Morphy Richards 3.5L Stainless Steel Slow Cooker-Review

My Mom's got a slow cooker, but her, along with many other people, don't know what to cook in them. My mom does a beef stew, sometimes substituting the beef for chicken, but that really is as far as it goes.
Schwartz research found that while 45 per cent of homes across the UK have a slow cooker*, only 14 per cent of use them**

*Based on Schwartz survey conducted by Ipsos Omnibus Online in January 2011.
**Schwartz research was conducted by 72 Point Research and surveyed 2,000 mums and 1,000 dads across the UK.

Morphy Richards is partnering with Schwartz, who have developed a range of slow cooker recipe mixes, and when i was asked to take part in a challenge to try out a Morphy Richards Slow Cooker along with the Schwartz recipe mixes I just had to say yes. I wanted to find out what other yummy food could be made other then stew, to be able to provide, healthy, tasty tea's, without having to be slaving away in the kitchen all day to acheive them. I wanted to prove we could have delicious dinners, at the same time as me spending the precious few hours after school with Eva(and Jack) finding out about her day at school, and playing, as opposed to cooking.

We have had the Slow cooker for nearly 2 weeks and already i have cooked Beef and Tomato Casserole, Chicken in Red Wine, Chicken Curry, and Chilli con carne. We will be trying out Sausage and Bean Casserole this week, aswel as finding more delicious slow cooker recipes.

I still can't get over how easy it is to use. I simply add all my raw ingrediants to the slow cooker in the morning, switch on, and leave until it's time to serve. Some slow cookers only have High and Low settings, but The Morphy Richards 3.5L Stainless steel Slow Cooker also has a medium setting too. Most dishes say the cooking times are 4 hours on high, 8 on low, so medium would take around 6 hours. I have used all 3 settings, and each time the same outstanding results are produced, succulent and tender meat, with really tasty sauce.
What surprised me most is the fact, that even after cooking for 8 hours, without stirring, the food is not burning or sticking to the bottom of the cooking pot. The ceramic cooking pot is also removable, and is dishwasher safe, along with the clear glass lid, which has a cool touch handle. I wash mine by hand(as unfortunately i don't yet have a dishwasher) and it is really easy to wash, even if i have left it until the next morning to wash, what would usually be stubborn dried on food, comes off easily.

The Morphy Richards 3.5L Stainless Steel Slow Cooker can be purchased here for £29.99, and in my opinion is a fantastic buy, that will get used time and time again, especially with the help of Schwartz Slow Cooker Mixes, and me, finding recipes and putting them up here, so you don't have to search for them.

Schwartz slow cooker mixes-Beef and Tomato Casserole-review

With winter coming, Schwartz have developed a range of slow cooker mixes, so we can enjoy yummy winter warmer teas, without slaving away at the cooker all day. How about coming in from work, or the school run, and smelling the delicious aromas of your tea, all ready to be dished up.

The Schwartz slow cooker range consists of Beef and Tomato Casserole, Chicken Curry, Chicken in Red Wine, and Sausage and Bean Casserole.

We were lucky enough to sample these, and i can say, they are simply delicious, and make a yummy tea for all the family.
All you have to do it put all the ingredients into the your slow cooker in the morning(i prepare any veg the night before), turn it on, and leave it to work its magic.

All the sachets have a list of ingredients on the back, but i love the fact that you can add or change anything you don't like, or just fancy adding.

First we tried the Beef and Tomato Casserole.

1 onion, cut into chunks
2 red peppers, cut into chunks
450g (1lb) lean beef, diced 
1 sachet Schwartz Slow Cookers Beef & Tomato Casserole Recipe Mix 
400g tin chopped tomatoes
2 tbs tomato purée

1. Place the onion, peppers and beef into your slow cooker pot.

2. Blend the sachet contents with the chopped tomatoes and tomato purée, and add to the slow cooker pot. Stir through.

Ready to be turned on. I added leeks and cherry tomotoes as they needed using up.
3. Cover and cook for 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW, or until the meat is tender and cooked through.  (Keep covered during cooking.  Cooking times vary between slow cooker models.)

4. Remove the lid, stir through and stand for 5 minutes before serving.

I served this with jacket potatoes, and it was truly delicious, something that not only me and Daz polished off, but that the little ones really enjoyed too.

Not only is it ideal for warming up in the cold winter months, it doesn't cost the earth to cook either.
This is based on what i pay for my ingredients from my local Morrison's.
I usually buy 3 onions for around £1, so about 35p for the onion,
Peppers again i think are around 3 for £1.50, so £1.00 for 2 peppers
Schwartz slow cookers mixes retail at around £1.00,
I use the basic range of chopped tomatoes which are 22p for a 400g tin,
Tomato puree i always have in the fridge, but if you don't it comes in at under £1 for a tube that will last ages.
I bought my beef on offer, as there was a selection of meats that were 3 for £10, so my beef cost around £3.50.
So for the beef casserole for 4 people (would feed 4 adults, as we had some left over from 2 adults and 2 children) it cost between £6 and £7. Add on another £1 for 4 large baking potatoes and that's a total of £2 per person. I think £2 each for a healthy, filling meal is a bit of a bargain.

Slow cookers are ideal for cooking tougher/less expensive cuts of meat, as the way it is cooked makes even the toughest of meats come out tender. If you don't own a slow cooker, they don't cost the earth these days, and i would say are a really good investment, especially as the weather is taking a turn for the worse, and it's getting really cold. I will be experimenting and trying plenty of slow cooker recipes in the next few weeks, so you won't be short on idea's. I have a Morphy Richards 3.5L Slow Cooker which can be bought here for £29.99.

So would i recommend the Beef and Tomato Casserole Slow Cooker Mix? I think you already know the answer to that is going to be a big yes. Why not try it.

How do you hold your's?

 BIC® Soleil® Shavers help you get a grip on who you are

According to BIC® Soleil® Shavers and body language expert Dr Jane McCartney, the way you hold your shaver can reveal more about you than you think.

BIC® Soleil® identified four different shaver grips which can be directly related to a woman’s individual characteristics, according to Dr McCartney: “Hands can signal inner secrets about ourselves more than any part of the body excluding the face, and studying the way we hold an object such as a shaver says a lot about who we are and our individual personalities.”

Below are the four most common types of grip BIC® Soleil® identified matched with personality traits described by Dr McCartney - which one are you?

‘Talk to the Palm Queen’ – you hold your shaver with four fingers on top and it acts as an extension of the hand with the tip of the shaver resting in the palm of your hand. This grip allows you to shave quickly and efficiently and reflects your direct, driven and pragmatic approach. You like to be on the go and enjoy being active and juggling lots of things at once. You don’t have time for high maintenance beauty regime but you always look well dressed and prepared for whatever life throws at you whether at work or at play.
Perfect BIC® Soleil® shaver: Bella

’The Pincer Princess’ – you normally hold your shaver between the top index finger, just like you would your tweezers and favour taking time over your beauty regime and being very precise reflecting your perfectionist approach to everything you do. You love nothing better than girlie nights in pampering you and your friends, whilst having a good gossip. You are known for your feminine style and your friends consider you as a great mate. 
Perfect BIC® Soleil® shaver: Miss Soleil

The Feather-Light Lady  – you tend to hold the shaver at the end of the handle with your fingertips, a bit like a make-up brush and use a sweeping, smooth action.  Your shaving stoke mimics your soft and gentle nature. You are happy to remain behind the scenes and are imaginative. You are a trustworthy and loyal friend and partner and have an air of sophistication.  You like to spend time on your beauty routine and you look like you take care in your appearance.
Perfect BIC® Soleil® shaver: Lady

The Pencil Painter – You hold your shaver with the thumb and middle finger and guide it with the index finger from the top, much like a pencil or paint brush.  You are independent, free-thinking and known for your creativity. Sensual and intuitive, you instinctively know what goes together and looks good – be it colour, texture or shape. Your sense of style is distinctive and unique, and you enjoy always looking your best.
Perfect BIC® Soleil® shaver: Scent

For more information about BIC® Soleil® and a range of great competitions please visit

When i was sent through this information i had to go and pick up my razor to see how i held my Bic Soleil Shaver.
I'm a The Pencil Painter.

Why not see what you are :-)
Feel free to comment and let me know.
