My productive morning routine

Has anyone else been having productive mornings since the start of lockdown? Now I have an extra two hours in the morning before work, rather than travelling to work, my mornings have been completely different. I know I could have a line in but I prefer to be productive in the mornings. Also, I’m still going to bed the same time, so why not a couple of hours to my self.

I hope I can keep this routine going after lockdown but it will be difficult Monday to Friday with travelling to work. I can see this continuing Saturday and Sunday though, we will have to see! I recently shared ways to keep busy during the lockdown, but I didn’t explain what my mornings are like. How is your quarantine going? Let me know in the comments!

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 theĀ 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!

Tea Tree Skin Care Range from The Body Shop

If you’ve been following An Ocean Glimmer for a little while, you’ll know that I use a couple of products from the Tea Tree skin care range from The Body Shop. I posted a review of their Tea Tree range over a year ago when I first started using their products. I thought I would update you as there have been some new introductions to my routine. Before we get into this review, I just wanted to give you a little background.

I suffer from blemished skin, I have always been trying to find a routine that works for me. It’s been tricky as nothing I purchased was working or did the opposite effect and made my skin worse. It got to the point where I was really suffering, meaning I had to go a little bit more upmarket to find a solution.

This is where my trip to The Body Shop came in, I’m not going to bore you too much with what you might have already read so let’s get started with my new routine!
