The Body Shop Skincare ðŸ§–🏼‍♀️

Something that I’ve wanted to address this year is my skincare.

I haven’t been very good at keeping on top of it, especially during the last half of 2019! But, I have finally got around to rectifying that.

I popped into The Body Shop as I have heard really good things about their skincare, I’m a big fan of the brand anyway, so I thought I would give them a try.

My skin has been quite dry recently so I was looking for something to add moisture, I was instantly drawn to their Vitamin E range.

With a bit of help (& thanks to a well timed 3 for 2 deal) I grabbed some bits from this and their Drops of Youth ranges.

Let’s take a look…

These are the two staples that I was looking for, a cream cleanser and a toner. Having these, at least, is a good shot at skincare (& your usual moisturiser of course)

As I said, I went for the Vitamin E range as this is great for adding moisture to your skin. Especially at this time of year, my skin is in much need of it.

I love that freshly cleansed feel with the added refreshment of a cold toner. It’s such a good feeling at the start of a new day and at the end of a long one!

& knowing you are adding moisture and comfort to your skin is great.

That’s why I also picked this up from that range…

This is their Vitamin E ‘Sink-in moisture sleeping mask’

This gives you an intense hydration boost to your skin, at night, which is when your skin needs that moisture and can take it in really well.

I must mention that this range is good for all skin types which is great 👍🏻

From their ‘Drops of youth’s’ range I picked up…

The ‘Youth liquid peel’ & ‘Youth Eye concentrate’.

The peel is very satisfying, as soon as you rub it onto your skin it starts to peel away the dead skin. It leaves your skin feeling super fresh.

The eye concentrate has a metal rollerball applicator which is so refreshing for under/around the eyes. It’s great if you wake up with puffy/sore eyes in the morning.

The final item that I got, as a little extra, since it was 3 for 2 (be rude not to) was their Himalayan charcoal purifying clay wash.

This is a lovely face wash that cleanses and purifies your skin. It also unclogs pores.

It leaves your skin feeling really clear, bright and much smoother.

This is a nice treat, to use every now and then, alongside the other products I picked up.

I am really enjoying using all of these products so far and I’m hoping my skin will thank me for it too… my skin is already feeling softer and my pores smoother.

Have you used any of these products?

What do you think?

Until next time,

April Beauty Favourites ðŸŒ¸

As its coming up to the end of April I thought that I would do an April favourites blog post as I havn’t done one of these in aaaaages! And these are some of my favourite blogs/vlogs to read and watch.

I’ve been trying out lots of different make up items this month so I thought it would be cool to make that the focus of my favourites.

So, let’s take a look at the beauty bits I’ve been enjoying throughout April 🌼

I’ve tried two new foundations this month, the Maybelline Super stay 24/7 full coverage foundation, in the shade porcelain and Rimmels match perfection foundation in the shade Ivory.

These are both really lovely foundations with great coverage and they are super affordable. The finish of these makes your skin look really flawless and they make a great base for your make up look.

Tanya Burr’s ‘Peony please’ illuminating powder.

This is just SO pretty. It is honestly one of my favourite make up items Ever.

It’s a great highlighter but also (and this is what I like to do) it is perfect for creating a pretty, fresh and glowy look. I apply this to the apples of my cheeks and along the top of my cheeks bones to give them a gorgeous glowy shimmer that makes your skin look amazing.

If you havn’t tried it I would 100% recommend giving it a go.

Benefit Ka-brow!

This is a fantastic brow product and its super long lasting. It’s creamy formula applies really easily and is great for creating a natural brow look in no time at all. The little angled brush makes it seamless when applying and creating shape and definition to your brow. This is often on offer in Boots so check it out if you are on the look out for a new brow product to try.

Some brushes that I have been loving are these two, as seen above. The large fluffy  brush is by Real Techniques, I love using this to apply the Tanya Burr Illuminator to my cheeks and face.

The face brush at the bottom is also by Real techniques and it is what I’ve been using to apply my concealor/foundation recently and I am loving the finish it gives.

And finally, onto lip products.

Forever a fave… Tanya Burrs ‘Pink Cocoa’ creme lipstick. It is the prettiest nude shade and is so versatile, from everyday make up, evenings out and parties it is such a pretty shade.

I’ve also been loving pinky toned lip colours such as the Nyx soft matte lip cremes, especially the shade ‘Istanbul’. The perfect spring pink.

They are definatly a make up bag staple if you are a lover of liquid lipsticks!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into my current faves.
Maybe give some a go if your looking for something new to add to your make up collection!

See you soon.

Until next time,

My daily skincare routine.

I thought I would share with you my usual morning skincare routine, including the products that I like to use.

I start off my skincare routine in the shower. I use normal shower creme but I am loving this lemon scented one from Aldi at the moment. 

It’s really lemony, zesty & fragrant. The smell & oils in this really hit you and wake you up! and you deal fresh and clean ready for the day ahead 🍋

I also like to use Zoellas Scrubbing me softly smoothing body scrub from her Tutti Fruitti range.

This smells really lovely and I absolutly LOVE the texture of it. It’s quite thick & smooth but when you rub it into your skin you can really feel the beads gently exfoliating your skin and it does leave it feeling so smooth.

The last thing I use in the shower is my LUSH ocean salt face & body scrub.

Lashings of fine sea salt to scrub and clean, organic limes to brighten and avocado butter to soften your skin.

This is so lovely & does exactly what it says on the tin 👌

I use this on the areas of my face where I get particularly dry skin or where my face breaks out the most, I’ve been doing this at the advice of the beautician who did my facial at Aqua springs during half term and it has defiantly helped me reduce the amount of spots I get on those problem areas. 

LUSH create lovely natural products which is good to know if you use their things regularly. I use this once or twice a week depending on how my skin is.

Once I’m out of the shower I cleanse and tone. 

(I’ve just run out of the cleanser so I couldn’t include a picture!!) 

Both my cleanser and toner are from Superdrug Vitamin E range. This is great for adding moisture to your skin and since my skin can be a little dry this is ideal for me. 

I put a little bit of the product onto a cotton pad and apply it all over my face and neck. Cleanser first, then toner.

I have a couple of different moisturisers & creams that I use on my face. I’ll start with my moisturiser by Olay.

I have been using this Olay day time beauty fluid for Normal/dry/combo skin since my teens and it has always left my skin feeling moisturised and refreshed. Now that I am mid twentys (ahh, that makes me feel old 🙈) I think my skin is in pretty good condition & I’m sure this moisturiser has played it’s part!

To add a bit more hydration to my skin I also use the Day cream from Superdrugs Vitamin E range. 24hr hydration 💧

This cream is rich in natural Vitamin E, high in anti oxidants and defends against environmental skin damage, it’s spf 15 too! 🌝 

This cream is a bit thicker than the Olay one so it’s nice to have a couple of different products that work for my skin. 

In the picture you’ll also see the Moisture boost facial serum from the Superdrug Vitamin E range; I use this every other day. This serum is more of a gel consistency and is great to apply before or after moisturiser.

And, the Nourishing eye cream; I use this probably every other day or when my eyes are feeling particularly tired and in need of a pick me up!

So that’s me! 👱 Using these products always leaves my skin feeling lovely & ready for the day (even without any make up) 

My sister recently did a blog post on some of her skincare faves, including the new Garnier Skin active moisture bomb range! 🙌  Check that out here.

Let me know what your skincare staples are! Any recommendations?!? 

Until next time,
