🌸 Hello first day of Spring! 🌸
A pamper evening isn’t a relaxing one without a bubble bath and a face mask. I am coming late to the face mask party, it’s only recently that I’ve fallen in love. My last trip to Wilko was successful, I managed to grab a small selection of 7th Heaven Easy Peel Masks at just £1 each. I also have the Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from the Autumnal Box Swap with Samantha. J.
Today I thought I would share with you my face mask collection and what I’ve been loving recently. These are all a must addiction to make a perfect pamper evening. I’m amazed at the prices of these masks! It’s perfect for your pamper evening, you can get a lot for your money at £1 each. The Deep Cleansing Bubble Mask Blueberry from Primark is even less at 80p. I have heard good things about 7th Heaven, I’m very excited to try them all.

Who can say no to new products? I am always on the lookout for products to try, you never know what you might come across. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Generation Skincare introducing their New Facial Serum; they call it ‘Beauty in a Bottle‘, with a request to review on An Ocean Glimmer. When they mentioned the lovely Sweet Orange scent, I couldn’t resist!
‘Generation A’ Facial Serum is a lightweight, all-natural serum that contains Vitamin B, C and E, Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid. Vitamin C helps to prevent signs of ageing before they even begin, to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Alongside the Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid works to retain water and to keep the skin super hydrated.
Here we are, another post sharing my love for bath bombs, who could say no!? I take any opportunity to purchase bath bombs, at the moment, our collection is very full. You might just remember that I recently shared my thoughts on the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics, leading to us having a grand total of 24 bath bombs. We’re not even halfway through all of these!
When I purchased the Advent Calendar, I actually received a free gift, the Hawaiian Flower Gift Pack. I was amazed to see it added to my basket, who doesn’t love a good freebie? This also meant I was getting more for my money than the 12 bath bombs in the Advent Calendar. This is one of the reasons I adore Bomb Cosmetics, their collections are impressive and you receive free goodies.
If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer since a year ago, you’ll hopefully remember that I did a blog post for Friction Free Shaving, a razor delivery service designed exclusively for women that arrives on your doorstep every month. I fell in love with my Shaviour, I thought now would be the perfect time to give you an update, also a little background on Friction Free Shaving.
Am I still using my Shaviour, Rose? What are my thoughts?

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,
a bath bomb which filled me with glee!
I know Christmas was over a month now but I couldn’t exactly speak about this beforehand. I adore a good bath bomb, who doesn’t!? They turn a normal bath into a bubble, relaxing hour. I have shared just a couple of bath bombs here on An Ocean Glimmer, showcasing my love for them! They are pretty addicting.
Today, I have got just a small haul of bath bombs and that’s because I received the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Bomb Cosmetics. As the name suggests, there are 12 different bath bombs inside the advent calendar. I was soo excited when I got my hands on this! I even returned the favour and brought Yasmine one.
I’m always interested in trying new products, as long as it features my favourite scents, I will give it a go. An email recently dropped in my inbox from Kathleen Natural introducing their Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel with a request to review a collection of my choice. There are three different moods to choose from; Citrus Cheer, Tranquil Fields and Sensual Rose.
Kathleen has released mini size versions of their luxurious, nourishing, delicate body care collection including Roll-on Fragrance Oil and Mini Bubble Bath and Shower Gel. Each collection is scented with three blended, pure essential oils – a top note, heart note and base note – to cover every mood. Of course, a travel size is perfect for on the move.
I chose Tranquil Fields because not only do I love Lavender and Vanilla scents, I wanted something to lift my mood and prepare me for the cold and horrible weather this Winter.
Happy Halloween! 🎃
I hope you’re all having a great day, eating a lot of sweets and getting ready for the trick or treaters. There’s nothing better than getting into the festive spirit than purchasing Autumnal scents. I have my Bath Bombs from Bomb Cosmetics, now the return of the Vanilla Pumpkin range from The Body Shop. I fell in love with this range last year and I’m so glad they’ve brought it back!
I am a massive fan of themed ranges from The Body Shop, this scent is great and they’re also killing it with their Christmas ranges. Definitely going to get my hands on one of those, unlike last year I knew I wanted to grab this range, there wasn’t nothing stopping me. Yasmine actually kindly brought me both the Shower Gel and Hand Cream when she visited Exeter, she knows me so well!
This time next week, you’ll have the carved pumpkins outside, a bowl full of sweets and trick or treaters knocking on the door, that’s right I’m talking about Halloween! This is one of my favourite holidays of the year and it just screams Autumn. I’m always intrigued by what brands bring out this time of year, there’s nothing better than getting into the spirit a little early.
Today I am sharing with you the Halloween range from Bomb Cosmetics, as you know I am a massive fan of Bath Bombs. I love how Bomb Cosmetics have brought out a selection of Halloween products, they’re really creative and valve for money, the perfect way to get you in the Halloween spirit. If you love Bath Bombs then this is definitely the post for you!
I am pretty addicted to purchasing bath products, bath time for me needs to be relaxing and there’s nothing better than dropping in a bath bomb. There are a lot of bath bombs to choose from and one of my favourite places to shop from is LUSH. Since trying my first bath bomb last December, I have surely become addicted and now I like picking up a small collection to treat myself.
In my Monthly Favourites // August, I shared with you my trip to Nottingham and the art trail Hoodwinked 2018 while wandering around I came across that oh so familiar scent of LUSH. I had to pop inside and see if there was anything new and exciting, I came across the Blooming Beautiful giftset that screamed Spring and relaxation. Nothing else took my fancy so Blooming Beautiful it was.
Your feet are the most important part of your body, your feet touch the ground whenever you’re standing, walking or running, and they are extensions of the legs. They are the foundation of your body, which means keeping your feet healthy can help keep you healthy. I’ve never really looked after my feet, even when I had a job in retail where I’m on my feet most of the day.
Although your feet are out of sight, you should treat them as though they were still on display. Winter is now only around the corner, during the Winter feet can dry out, leading to cracked heels and peeling skin. I have always struggled with dry and cracked skin with my heels definitely going through the worst. For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been trying some products from Flextitol and I want to share my thoughts with you.
In total, I received four different products from Flexitol, Hand Balm, Cuticle & Nail Cream, Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream. I recently shared my thoughts on Hand Balm and Cuticle & Nail Cream, they’ve been good to keep my hands feeling refresh during all these different weather conditions. Today I am sharing my thoughts with you on the Heel Balm and Moisturising Foot Cream.
