Boots - Marvellous must have minis box!

Monday, 21 December 2015

My fist impressions of this box were that it's absolutely beautiful. It really caught my attention. Inside there's a Zingy satsuma spray, a fruity strawberry body scrub, a luscious vanilla body wash and a luxurious coconut body butter, they're all minis and they all smell absolutely gorgeous. The coconut scent and strawberry are my absolute favourites!.  They all contain fair trade ingredients and at £8, I thought this would make a beautiful gift or stocking filler!.after  trying them out, I'd say That although I like the smell of these my skins a bit too sensitive for these products.However, this would make a great gift!.

My lip care routine

Wednesday, 16 December 2015

Lip care is something I tend to keep quite simple. It is definitely something I need to broaden. However, these are the products I tend to use daily. 

The best product I use for my lips is an oldie but a goodie - the Nivea essential care lip balm. In my opinion, this is great, It's very moisturising and it makes my lips lovely and soft. I use this every morning before applying lip products. It's great to just pop in your handbag.

I also use Vaseline lip therapy, These are brilliant, They're so hydrating. They come in lovely little tins and there are a couple different scented ones, I tend to use the rosy lips and original, The original is my favourite I've not long bought a new tin of this, whereas the rosy lips has a lovely tint and a beautiful smell to it. I'll use the original at night mainly and either the Nivea balm in the morning or every now and again I'll use the rosy lips Vaseline.

I do have quite dry lips and I really would like to try some new products so If anyone can recommend some for me in the comments that'd be fantastic.

Products I've been loving recently

Monday, 14 December 2015

Today, I wanted to share with you some of my holy grail products, those ones that get me through the days (that sounded slightly materialistic there). Let me know in the comments what your favourite products are?, What are you loving rn?.

The first product I'd like to share with you guys is The Dove essential nourishing lotion, for dry skin. this is AMAZING!, The product works wonders on my dry skin, there's  a lovely scent but it isn't strong enough to cause my skin to have a reaction. I've been using this for around 2 weeks and my skin feels so much healthier. I use this every day after I bath. Speaking of baths, My second product is also Dove, It is the Dove silk glow nourishing body wash, This gives me the softest skin after using both of these products together the silk glow has a lovely scent to it and gives my skin such a lovely healthy looking glow. I will definitely recommend these products, Dove is my absolute holy grail when it comes to skincare.

My next must have is the vaseline intense care hand cream, This has microdroplets of vaseline in. This product is perfect for me, I suffer from dry skin and this hydrates my skin so much, I also found that this strengthened my nails as well. I love the smell of this and it absorbs fast which is always a good thing especially if you're out and about or in a rush!.

Batiste dry shampoo, This is definitely one of those products I'd recommend to everyone. It is so useful, it instantly makes your hair look refreshed, It also gives lots of texture, This is very budget friendly. I think it's absolutely brilliant, I love the cherry scented one. This is something I find myself buying a lot it is amazing.

I mentioned in my last post that I'd been using the simple clean and clear products, I am absolutely loving these! they're really helping with my breakouts and the oil balancing moisturiser helps keep my skin hydrated. This is something that I'll definitely be rebuying and I'll definitely be buying more simple products in the future.
Makeup wise I am absolutely loving Nude eyeshadows at the moment I recently brought this new palette, It's called 'The nudes' from Maybelline new york, I love this palette, The shadows are lovely colours and they work lovely together. There're 13 looks in this palette which is amazing for the price. I still have a few combinations to try which I'm really looking forward to doing, The combinations I've tried so far are really nice. I'm also absolutely loving the collection lasting colour lipstick, My favourite shade is definitely taffeta bloom it is a gorgeous colour, It lasts a while and it has a good coverage. This is definitely something I'll be buying again!. The Rimmel Brow This Way styling gel is something I've been loving recently, This gives a natural look, I love the wand it's very easy to use. I'll definitely buy this again!.

Have you tried any of these products?, what did you think?

Simple Skin Care Review

Sunday, 13 December 2015

I generally have quite a combination of skin types, In some places, it's quite oily. However, In other places its relativity dry, as well as this I have sensitive skin so I have to be careful with what products I'm using on my skin. I have heard quite good things about the brand simple and I thought I'd give it a go.

I started by buying a hydrating light moisturiser from the 'kind to skin' range I found that this worked wonders on my skin, I used this every day and night for a few weeks and my skin started feeling a lot more hydrated and looking healthier. 

However, my oily skin still persisted, So I went and purchased an oil balancing moisturiser, oil balancing exfoliation wash and oil balancing cleansing wipes from the 'clear skin' range. The moisturiser is really helping to balance out my combination skin and the exfoliation wash helps to keep my breakouts down, the wipes I use for taking off my makeup.

My routine usually starts in the morning, I'll use my exfoliation wash around 3-4 times a week and I moisturise before applying makeup everyday. At night I'll remove all my make up with the wipes. As you can see I'm running quite low! but this is definitely something I'll stocking up on. 
I am very impressed with the Simple products, I have tried so far and I will be trying lots more,  I would highly recommend Simple.

Have you ever tried simple?, What did you think?.
