I’m always learning something new about my body and the types of products to use, I was recently contacted by Word of Mouth Communication to try one of their client’s new products. It’s a product that I have never thought to try until now after researching the brand and product.
The product I’m speaking about is Firm Skin Upper Arms from skin689®, an emulsion especially designed for the skin of the upper arms that catalyzes energy metabolism and breakdown of fatty acids.
I’ve been trying it for a couple of weeks now and thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to skin689® and their products. Before getting to my review of their Firm Skin Upper Arms, I thought I would speak about skin689®, a brand from Switzerland.

A few weeks ago, I shared with you my experience at The Body Shop VIP Evening at their Oxford store. If you haven’t already read that post, well what are you waiting for! Before reading the below you should definitely catch up with my thoughts on the very special event here. It’s the perfect introduction post for what I’m going to share with you today, that’s right I am talking about all the goodies I received from The Body Shop.
I won’t be going into too much detail here because with receiving so much I would be here forever. If you interested in any particular product below, I might just write a review just for that product! Even any that I really enjoyed and just have to share my thoughts with you. There are even a couple brand new products, I’ll probably introduce them further in their own post.
I think there’s a theme going on here, recently I visited Westgate in Oxford, a recently remodelled Shopping Centre. Now, it opened late last year, perfect timing for Christmas! For an exploration though, not good timing, I’m not a fan of busy and crowded places, I’ve said to Yasmine since I heard about it’s re-opening, we should go and visit. Finally, we had the opportunity to go visit!
I’m not going to go too much in depth about Westgate and my adventure there, as you’ll see from the title, this post isn’t about that. Some could say it’s about something so much better! That’s right I’m talking about LUSH, somewhere I’ve become addicted too since leaving Plymouth actually. We’re not lucky to have one in Aylesbury, our closest is either Oxford or Milton Keynes. Depending on what way you want to go!

It’s such a nice feeling when you enter a competition and you find out a few days later that you’ve won! I swear I go through stages of never winning, then I suddenly win everything I enter. Recently I came across With Love Yossy, a fashion, travel & lifestyle blog from Yossy. She shared her Affordable Oily & Acne Prone Care Routine, which featured Dead Sea Mud Mask from Ivy Beauty.
Not only was she gifted this Mud Mask but also hosted a competition in collaboration with Ivy Beauty. I know, you probably know where this going, I was the lucky competition winner and I was very happy to receive it! As well as trying this Mud Mask that Yossy spoke very highly of and mentioned it worked wonders for herself in tackling her oily and acne prone skin.

Can you believe the weather we’ve had recently!? Finally, Spring has come to the UK. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for it to warm up, it wasn’t that long ago that the UK was six feet under snow and we grounded to a halt. Now with this mini heatwave, everyone has been enjoying themselves out in the sun. Whilst it’s nice to be outdoors, enjoying the weather, it’s important to stay protected from the harmful UV rays which can cause skin cancer.
There are a lot of different sunscreens to chose from and this can make it confusing, to help you understand the best sunscreen for your skin, there are different guides out there. Especially as they aren’t all created equally and some have better protection than others. With having fair skin, I am always using sunscreen as I’m more sensitive to the sun and I’ve learnt the hard way in the past. Having sunburn can be really painful and increases the risk of skin cancer.

If you read my Monthly Favourites // May 2018, you’ll know that I went to The Body Shop for their Blogger VIP Event. As an avid Body Shop fan, I was pretty excited when I received an email in my inbox with the words ‘VIP Blogger Event’ in the title. I attended the private event at my local Body Shop in Oxford City Centre at their Westgate store.
Even though I live 45minutes down the road, this is only the second time I’ve been to Oxford! I love the design The Body Shop are now taking with all their stores, making them a lot fresher and exciting. Pretty much-bringing nature and what the company is all into their store. I was really excited to attend this event as it would officially be my first Blogger Event!
It’s that time of year where it starts getting warmer with Spring finally here, us girls start to wear skirts and dresses. Unfortunately, we’ve been a little lazy with something over the Winter, yes that’s correct I’m talking about Shaving! Shaving can be a pain, it takes forever to shave everywhere and sometimes it even hurts, there’s one company out there, that’s trying to make this better for us ladies.
You can get anything through your letterbox these days as subscription boxes, from beauty, food, stationery to gin, flowers and cake. There’s nothing that can’t be delivered straight to your house monthly, something that every women needs can also be delivered monthly through your door. Thanks to Friction Free Shaving, you can lead a less irritating life when it comes to Shaving.
I don’t know about you but I love trying new products! You can come across a variety of different products that help you to feel and look good. I love supporting smaller companies as well as those that are Vegan and 100% natural. When I came across Organic Shop, I fell in love and just had to try their products! Especially when there are combinations like Raspberry & Acai, Avocado & Honey and Pomegranate & Patchouli.
Now Organic Shop reminds me of Faith in Nature with their range of amazing products for your hair and body, I fell in love with their Watermelon Collection. Just like Faith in Nature, all the products from Organic Shop are bursting full of natural ingredients, they even use traditional beauty combinations and recipes. The products are available exclusively in Tesco and on their official website.
Before I get to more about Organic Shop and their products, I just wanted to thank them for sending me their Coconut & Shea range.
For the past couple of years, I have been struggling with my acne, I haven’t been able to find anything that really helps! I tried the Tea Tree Skin Care range from The Body Shop but unfortunately, when I moved to Aylesbury nearly a year ago, it flared up again. Since then I’ve been on the search for something to calm down my skin and I think I’ve found something that’s slowly fixing it.
Recently, I was given a couple of samples from The Ordinary, I was a little sceptical about these products as I didn’t know how they would fair with my sensitive skin. When it comes to a skincare range, I have to be really careful and check the ingredient list. Before I share with you the products I have tried from The Ordinary that seem to be doing a really good job, I thought I would introduce the brand.
During the Winter months, I find my lips are horrible, they become chapped and sore, it’s hard finding something that keeps this at bay. Especially with the change of weather recently, my lips have been chapped and I’ve needed something to fix them. I do find that the change between one season to another can cause problems with your health and appearance.
Of course, there are a lot of different products on the market that say they can save your chapped lips, but do these actually work! I’ve been eyeing up recently products from Dr.PAWPAW including their Original Balm. I was actually recently gifted their balm to combat my chapped lips. I’m sure if you read my March Favourites, you’ll know I’ve been raving about this product!
As well as speaking about it on my social media channels, of course, I wanted to speak about the Original Balm in a little bit of depth here today.
