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 🙂

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…

wpid-20140721_184618.jpg

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 ❤

Monthly Favourites

June Favourites ☼

Hi beauties. ☼

Oh wow, I can’t believe it’s already July! But that means it’s favourites timeeeeee, yaaay! 😀 I know I haven’t been consistent with my favourites, but I’m planning to do them every month now. Click ‘like’ if you’d like to see that 🙂

Anyway, on with my June favourites…

wpid-20140701_165833.jpg

1. Hollister Body Mist in Crescent Bay – I’ve had this spray since Christmas time (I think), although I use it almost everyday it’s still going strong! I absolutely love this scent, it sort of smells like a watermelon/strawberry hybrid, it’s the perfect, light body spray for summer.☼wpid-photogrid_1404230886131.jpg2. Sleek True Colour Matte Lipstick in Papaya Punch – Although this is a recent purchase, I think I actually bought it at the beginning of June, I’ve been loving it!! It’s such a beautiful orange colour, you guys know how much I looooovemy orange lippys 🙂

3.The Body Shop Body Butter in Strawberry – My best friend bought me this as part of my christmas present, there’s a story behind it though. (Beware it may seem quite weird to you, haha!) Anyway, she bought me this as it reminds us of the smell of Calpol (yes, the medicine). We both love that smell, so she was a little cutie & bought me this for that reason 🙂 I also love how moisturising this actually is on the skin, it makes you feel heavenly!!

4. Rimmel Matte BB Cream – I use this pretty much everyday, as it’s summer here in the UK I don’t like anything too heavy on the skin. This is perfect as it is very light weight & does exactly what I want it to, even my skin tone 🙂 Let me know if you’d like a review on this BB Cream!

5. Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Under Treasure – If you’ve read my post about winning an instagram giveaway (if not you can read it here) you’ll know I got this as part of my prize. It turns out, I’m completely in love! This is the most gorgeous metallic, bronze colour, that flatters my green eyes perfectly! Sadly, we can’t get Catrice in the UK!! *sobs*

6. Real Techniques Blush Brush – So you guys know I love Real Techniques brushes, they’re absolutely amazing, especially for their very affordable price tag! I’ve been loving this brush (in conjunction with Hoola) to bronze up my face & even to contour!

wpid-20140701_182237.jpg

7. Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me – After jumping on the band wagon with the Baby Lips, I have been pleasantly surprised! They’re such fab products, this one is the only one I own, but I love it! I have used it everyday on my lips just to add a little bit of colour for work 🙂

wpid-photogrid_1404230845104.jpg8. Benefit Hoola Bronzer – Last, but by no means least, it’s my very favourite bronzer (duuur you guys know that!!). I don’t think I need to say much, you beauties all know how amazing it is. But if you’d like to know more about Hoola then check out my review, click here.

That’s all for my June favourites! I hope you all like these type of posts (let me know if you do) 🙂
