Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

March 6, 2014
Garnier Micellar Water

Micellar water has quickly become one of my absolute skincare staples, so when I spotted a new player in town I couldn’t resist giving it a go! For those not in the know, micellar waters are a sort of none-rinse make-up remover and cleanser in one. They can be used on the face, lips and eyes (and any other body part should you need it!) and are a dream for sensitive skin as they are soap, and usually fragrance, free.…

L’Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream

January 14, 2014
loccitane-featured

I was lucky enough to receive two of these 15ml sized L’Occitane Angelica Hydration Creams, one from a beauty box and the other as a freebie. Having recently finished one of these tubs, I kind of want to stand on top of the roof tops and crazily spread the word! I love discovering new moisturisers, especially ones that don’t irritate my skin, so I was over the moon when this turned out to be one of -the- best I have…

The Body Shop Olive Shower & Moisture Cube

January 5, 2014

  It’s no secret that I like The Body Shop probably more than I should and definitely to the dismay of my bank balance. Alas, before Christmas I picked up their Olive Shower & Moisture Cube having heard some good reviews from fellow “dry skin” sufferers. For a meager £4.00 you are graced with the following: Olive Shower Gel 60ml x 2 Mini Crinkle Lily – Green No body butter or scrub unfortunately, but that’s Okay. Despite this being Olive,…

Dec Most Wanted

November 28, 2013

I was hoping my Oct/Nov Most Wanted installment would be it until after Christmas. I was so wrong! Browsing the web and gift magazines has only made my love for all things … well erm … all things … even bigger! So my Nov/Dec most wanted, is going to be all the things I want, but definitely can not have until well into the New Year. Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette 20 Beautiful dark and glittery shades. God I need…

November 25, 2013
The Body Shop Chocomania Minis

Last week The Body Shop had two amazing special offers on, and of course I had to take full advantage of them both! I posted about the first here a few days ago, and now my second box of goodies has arrived! This offer was a special treat for fans of The Body Shop’s Facebook Page, offering free P&P and a mini Chocomania set with purchases over £5, unfortunately the offer is no longer running as they had such a…

Body Shop offer 1

  The Body Shop is one of those places where  I never seem to have to buy anything at full price because there is always a great offer on – at the moment you can get 35% off everything, free delivery and a free gift when you spend £5! This offer runs till Monday 25th Novemeber, so still plenty of time to get your hands on some shinies! My first package arrived this morning (I’m waiting on another from a…

November 18, 2013
Rituals Fortune Scrub Marie Claire

  Despite our recent falling out with some of Marie Claires ideals (which you can read about in Amie’s amazing post here) I couldn’t resist picking up this month’s offerings as you get a full sized Rituals body scrub worth £10! The Rituals Fortune Scrub freebie only comes in one scent – sweet orange and cedar – and it is delicious! A perfect early morning scrub that left my skin feeling amazingly smooth, well worth giving a try! Marie Claire…

Facemask Friday – Avon Planet Spa Thailand Lotus Flower

November 15, 2013

Well it’s Friday again, and after a rather rocky few weeks for Gem and I consisting of feeling under the weather and bogged down with reams of work as the festive season approaches it’s a chance to take a step back and relax. (Not for too long mind!) Today’s facemask is the Avon Planet Spa Thailand Lotus Flower deep pore cleansing facemask. (Bit of a mouthful there!) My favourite thing about this mask, is the way it drys, it turns…

CLINIQUE – Youth Surge SPF 15 moisturiser

November 13, 2013

I know I recently reviewed Clinique’s dramatically different moisturiser with a less than impressed view, but I figured I owed it to Clinique to offer some brownie points for this product. This is another moisturiser I have recently finished, and this youth surge SPF 15 is absolutely brilliant. I used it as both a day and night cream and although I wasn’t particularly taken with the smell, after continuous use I really saw the results. Although I didn’t notice myself…

Glossybox November 2013

November 12, 2013

After a pretty rubbish few weeks of Gem and I clawing through each day, surrounded by tissues and blankets, the arrival of this month’s Glossybox couldn’t have come sooner. Last month we were both a little disappointed at the contents of our boxes, so I was reasonably apprehensive about opening mine this morning just in case! This didn’t last long though as I peeled open the tab on the box and carefully removed the lid, revealing a treasure trove of…
