LUSH Blooming Beautiful

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.

Caring for my feet with Flexitol

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.

Surviving change of season with Flexitol hand care range

This year has been a mixture of different weather conditions, from our Winter and the Beast from the East and our Summer hotter than Spain. Across the United Kingdom, we have all experienced this weather for some we’re able to cope but for others, it has been horrible weather conditions. Our skin is one of the most important things we have to look after especially our hands and feet.

We sometimes forget to look after our skin, it’s something we need to start doing more.

Brighter Skin in 4 Weeks With Fade Out

There are so many products on the market to include in your morning / evening routine, that it’s hard to understand which product to use. With so many different companies all telling you that their product will reduce problems we women love to hate. For as long as I can remember, I have always had problems with my skin, leading to me going on the search for the best skincare products.

In mid-June, I signed up for the 4 Week Challenge with Fade Out, the journey towards skin confidence. I was a little unsure at first about the Challenge as with sensitive skin, I have to be very careful about the type of products I use. I’m glad I was able to choose the correct products for my skin type and no sooner than signing up, I had received my products.

Now here I am one month later and the 4 Week Challenge is complete! I thought I would share my thoughts and feelings with you about these products. Has my skin become brighter? Do I agree with what they’re promising? Please keep reading!

Altruist Dermatologist Sunscreen

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.
