If you’d said 10 years ago that I’d be interested in hand creams and body lotions, I would have probably laughed in your face. I mean, I did the occasional leg moisturising before a big date, but that was about it.
I used to get hand creams in my Christmas stockings and they were ungratefully shoved in a drawer until well past their use by dates and, once found years later, unceremoniously dumped in the bin.
I have incredibly sensitive skin (and rosacea) so I’m always on the look out for products that won’t irritate my face, but will still cleanse and moisturise well without causing my skin to go red and blotchy.
I’ve tried to cut down my make-up stash recently so I’ve gone through my products and tried them out to see if I still love them as much as I did when I bought them. As it turns out there are a few products that I’m no longer fond of and a few forgotten products that I’m re-loving, so I thought I’d share 4 of each, can you guess which ones are in which category??
I love a good old pamper session, so I was delighted to be invited to the Uniquely Organic Eco Spa in Hove (at 40 Church Road), along with a few other bloggers to check out what they do and to sample one of the treatments for ourselves!
It’s no secret that my eyebrows are a bit shit. I thought it was because I over-plucked them when thin brows were all the rage in the 1990s. It turns out it’s actually mostly genetics as all the women on my mum’s side of the family have barely-there brows!
I’ve known about Crownbrush for a couple of years now, having followed them on Twitter for ages and even been to an event they were also at but, if I’m being completely honest, I thought they only sold make-up brushes and eyeshadow palettes. Turns out I was wrong; very, very wrong!!
I absolutely love getting to hang out with some of my favourite Brighton people and Amy and Mickaela from Salon Success, so I was thrilled to get an invite to another dinner event; this time at Six in Hove! I’ve heard loads of good things about the restaurant, so I was excited I’d be trying it out for myself and getting to see the new products from Salon Success 😀
You know when a super exciting email drops into your inbox and you do a little dance of joy? That’s how I felt when I found out that Kathleen Natural was releasing a brand new range of products; the Luxurious Body Care Range!! There are three different moods to choose from; Citrus Cheer, Tranquil Fields and Sensual Rose.
*Disclaimer* this post has no actual photos of feet!
I have to be honest, one of the things I hate most about the UK suddenly getting a few hot days is that everyone shoves on a pair sandals or flip-flops, despite having spent winter neglecting their feet 😬😬😬
I mean, I’m not saying my feet are by any means perfect; my toes are slightly bent, which sometimes causes them to rub on my shoes 🤢🤢 But I do try to keep them looking as fab as I possibly can!
Sometimes I absolutely can’t help myself. I’m a bit of a lucky giveaway winner, I seem to win a lot and I don’t know why. I’m also quite lucky at raffles too, just ask Áine 😂😂 So I’ve put myself on a bit of a ban entering giveaways, especially as I own so many products that I barely use already.
