Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday 🖤

Hi my lovelies,

Who agrees, Sunday’s are for self care & relaxation? 🙌 I’m making sure that each Sunday evening I give myself a little pamper ready for the week ahead. Just doing these little steps makes me feel so much better about myself!

No pamper session would be complete without a good face mask. This one is actually a face mask duo from Superdrug, you get a clay mask to detoxify & cleanse the t-zone & a moisture mask to hydrate & smooth the rest of the face, I concentrated this on the cheeks & neck. Yes guys & gals, make sure you’re giving your neck the same pamper. It’s one of the earliest giveaway signs of us aging so we want to look after our skin on the neck!🙂

Can I just tell you, for £1.79 this mask duo made my skin feel A-MA-ZING!!!! Even before moisturising, my face felt so hydrated yet not oily & deep cleansed in the centre!! I’ll definitely be repurchasing this baby 😍

Whilst in the shower I did use my Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean cleanser that I’ve been loving for the longest time.

I then toned with Lush Eau Roma Water (rose water basically) which I love as it has helped my dry skin become less dry, if you’ve read my blog a while you’ll know I used to have oily skin, it then went dry whilst pregnant and now I would say it’s a bit of a combination.

To finish of the skincare on my face I uses my Avant Face & Eye Night Cream (got this in glossy box a few months ago) it’s the bomb! It makes my face feel REBORN! But it is very expensive, although if I had the money to repurchase the full size I definitely would, so I highly recommend it if you have a high budget and are looking for an amazing night cream🙂

I’m usually super lazy with exfoliating my body, but tonight I did just that & I can confirm my skin feels fricking brilliant. Why don’t I do this more?😂 **where are my lazy body exfoliators? give me a 🖤 in the comments**

Both my body wash & exfoliator are The Body Shop frosted berries scent, it smells divine. Not sure if it’s was just a Christmas special though!

To moisturise my new baby skin I used the Soaper Duper Body butter. I got this in a glossybox, before that I’d never heard of this brand but it’s lovely. Super fresh smelling & has no nasties in the formula, what more could we want 😍

I then painted my toe nails with this gorgeous colour, it’s the shade ‘status ready’🙂 I’m not going to post a picture of my toes, I have a weird thing about feet!😂

I’m going to be doing more of these every Sunday but different topics of course. Everything to do with self care & self love 🖤

Have you tried any of these products? what were your thoughts 🙂

Hi beauties 🌞

Last week I decided to nip into town since I needed a few skincare items. Obviously I didn’t just buy what I needed, haha. So today I’m  sharing with you what I picked up from Boots and Superdrug!:)

L’Oréal had a 3 for 2 offer, naturally I took it upon myself to buy 3 items. I’ve been wanting to repurchase the True Match foundation for agesssss now, so decided to pick it up. I got shade W1 as N1, the shade I got before, was a bit ghostly.
Click here for an in depth review.

The second L’Oréal product I picked up was the Brow Plumper;  my twin beautifulbreakable adores and highly recommends. Definitely look forward to a review!

Thirdly, I got L’Oréals Lumi Magique Concealer. I’ve not tried this so I’ll keep you all posted 🙂

image

I was running low on my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, so repurchased it. LOVEEEE this. Definitely my go to concealer!! 🙂

image

I recently discovered how much I love this Soap and Glory Sugar Crush scent so had to pick up the body wash. If you haven’t smelt it. YOU NEED TO!!

image

I was in need of a new face cleanser so decided to give this Soap and Glory Peaches and Cream Deep Cleansing Milk a try. I’ll keep you posted on it!:)

image

I’ve already done a ‘First Impression’ on this Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed. Click here to find out more about it!

I’ve always been curious about Micellar Water so I decided to try this Garnier one. A review will be on its way! 🙂

First Impression Friday

First Impression Friday (on saturday!) ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

I was meant to get this up yesterday but was soooo busy.. so here it is today, my First Impressions on the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed!:)

What Soap & Glory claim

• 1-MINUTE HOT PORECLEAR™ TECHNOLOGY – a fast-acting, smoothing and polishing blend of micropumice, salicylic acid and hot clay, which activates with water contact
• GLYCERIN – to help skin feel soft and supple
• unique COLOUR-CHANGING TECHNOLOGY – (blue indicates when it’s activated)
• PLUS surface-polishing micro beads
• use weekly on areas susceptible to blackhead build-up
• strategically formulated for oily/combination skin

image

What I thought

In Boots it retails for £11.50 and for that price you can’t really say no to trying it.
I first heard about this product from The Makeup Chair on YouTube (definitely check out her channel!!). I always go by her recommendations as she always trials products thoroughly before! 🙂

Although this is only a first impression I really loved the results. My skin felt lovely & soft. Also, I have some blackheads on my nose, they seemed to be reduced.

When you first apply this its a creamy coloured product, with a cream like texture and micro beads for exfoliation. Once you start rubbing it into the face it turns a blue colour. This means the hot poreclear technology has been activated. To be honest you can tell it’s working as your face feels warmer. It does feel strange for a minute or so.

image

You leave it on for about 3 minutes, it makes your face a bit stiff but is tacky to tough. After the time was up I just washed it off using a muslin cloth & patted my face dry with a towel.

Overall I really loved this product after just one use, I’ll definitely keep you updated on how I get on with it.

Have you tried this product? 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha

Summer Soft Skin: Top 5 Body Butters!♥

Hi Beauties. ☼

Sorry I haven’t posted this weekend, but it’s been a busy one. Although I’ve been off work, its been lovely weather so I’ve been making to most of it & soaking up the sun 🙂

As it’s summer now, I tend to get dry skin (well my body anyway), so I like to moisturise it every other day or so! I’m going to share with you my top 5 body butter picks from my least favourite to my absolute favourite…

5. Vaseline – Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Lotion. This is a very intense moisturiser, as the name would suggest. It retails at £4.99, which in my eyes is pretty cheap as this is a huge 400ml bottle. I tend to just use this when my legs are feeling particularly dry as it instantly makes them soft & smooth again, especially as it’s unfragranced I know it won’t irritate!! 🙂

I would give this moisturiser a 4/5, it does what it says on the bottle! I definitely recommend it for those with dry, sensitive skin or anyone who needs a good intense moisturiser! It’s only my least fave as it doesn’t have a scent & is pretty boring! (haha).

4. Avon Naturals – Cherry Blossom Moisturising Body Whip.I actually really enjoy this body moisturiser, it does moisturise well & smells absolutely gorgeous. It is a nice silky consistency & almost leaves your skin with a little glow. I don’t know how much this was as it was a present, but I doubt it’d be over £5.

I give this body whip a 4/5, just because it does the job but it’s not the best I’ve tried.

3. Garnier – Summerbody Moisturising Lotion Sun-kissed Look. I really like this moisturiser, it has a hint of tanning agent in it so after it develops & has sunk in fully it leaves a lovely glow to the skin. It really does moisturise the skin, I used this the other night & when I woke my skin felt as soft as a babies & had a lovely glow. To see a full review click here.

I’d give this moisturiser a 4.5/5. It is a great moisturiser/gradual tanner, it just leaves a bit of a tanning smell (albeit not half as bad as others!)

2. Soap & Glory – Sugar Crush.OH MY GOSH. I just can’t get over this smell, it smells amazing, mouthwateringly amazing (literally!!), if you haven’t smelt it, you NEEDto!! Anyway, this is actually a great moisturiser, it ticks all the boxes in that it moisturises the body, absorbs fast & smells heavenly. This is only a little sized one but you can get the big tub for £10.50.

I give this a 5/5 it’s everything I want in a moisturiser. You can’t go wrong with it 🙂

AND THE WINNER IS…

1. The Body Shop – Strawberry Body Butter. If you read my other post I mentioned this in, you’d know I LOOOOVE the smell of it. It reminds me of Calpol, yes the medicine, haha! It’s lush 🙂 As well as smelling fab, it does an amazing job at moisturising, it leaves my skin feeling gorgeous. It’s just a shame it’s £13 a tub, which is quite expensive for a moisturiser to me!

I definitely recommend this body butter & give it a 5/5, just go try it & see for yourself 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Let me know what your fave body moisturisers are, I’m always wanting to try more 🙂 xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
