Guest Post: Skincare – Winter to Spring!

Guest Post by Caitlin Miller

Our skin changes with the change of seasons. Therefore, we also need to change our skincare routine! We cannot maintain the same skincare methods every season. We need to follow a simple but effective routine to keep our skin perfect!

Winter is the season when days are short and nights are long. We feel cold, and our skin becomes dry and itchy. On the other hand, Spring is entirely different! Our skin will be exposed to more sunlight and environmental factors and naturally more hydrated. So, we need to change our skincare routine. For example, the moisturiser we use in the Winter months will not suit our skin in the Spring!

Here are my top tips for changing skin care while switching from Winter to Spring:

CLEANSING the skin

Cleansing helps us to remove dead skin cells, oil, and dirt from the skin. When Spring comes, using a good cleanser for your skin type will ensure you can show off your skin without having to use makeup and products to mask any blemishes, pigmentation and uneven areas. Cleansing day and night will also ensure that pores are minimised and limit breakouts!

 

Start exfoliating

In Winter, our skin dries out more quickly and leaves dead skin cells. So, Spring is the time to help skin recover! We all want smooth soft skin and we all know that smooth skin is the key element to helping us look beautiful. Scrubbing helps to clean our skin of old cells and clogged pores. It also helps us to increase the glow of our skin giving a more clear and radiant result! Many exfoliators also contain anti-ageing ingredients, an added bonus! However, you shouldn’t exfoliate more than twice a week as this can stress the skin.

Moisturising the skin

Moisturiser seems a simple thing to use, but it helps us in many ways. A lightweight moisturiser in the Spring will keep the skin looking hydrated and fresh and allows it to breathe without adding to any oil production. It can also be mixed with foundation to create a tinted moisturiser, avoiding the need for heavy foundation!

Apply (and re-apply) sunscreen

With the weather changes, our skin may suffer from peeling and redness as it adapts. Sunscreen can help protect us from this as well as prevent sunburn as the weather hots up! Sunscreen will also protect us from the risk of various types of skin cancer. Luckily, many face and makeup products already contain sun protection so if you haven’t already checked this it’s worth doing so and investing in a few key items if needed! An SPF factor of 50 is ideal – don’t forget to protect your lips as well!

Nature has a lovely relationship with our skin. In Winter we feel uncomfortable as our skin becomes dry. On the other hand, at the time of Spring, we can feel the extra oil in our skin. So, we need to ensure that we balance our skin needs which will result in glowing, naturally youthful skin!

Guest Post: Put Your Best Face Forward: Vegan, Halal & Organic Skincare

  Guest Post by Joanna Cheng – Check out her Bio below!

“I’m Joanna, a travel enthusiast that’s always been obsessed with beauty. I grew up playing with eyeshadows and lipsticks. Now that I’m an adult, I spend my time exploring the world. I bring my makeup bag with me everywhere I go—from Puerto Rico to Japan. In addition to exploring the food and sights of new places, I love learning about their ways of beauty, too.”

Read Joanna’s advice on different skincare options:

Skincare is essential to growing old gracefully and keeping a youthful appearance no matter what your age. There are many skincare products on the market today. Finding the perfect ones for you is the first step to a successful routine. Unlike years past when women would use any products in the marketplace, there is a new shift worldwide for healthier and more natural products. Not only is beauty from within a growing trend among women, so are products that are applied to our skin. Smart consumers want to know what they are applying to their bodies and these are three niche markets that are meeting this trend:

Halal

Halal means acceptable in Islam culture where Muslim women have distinct beliefs about not combining their faith with their beauty. These women cannot use cosmetics and skincare products that contain alcohol, “pig-derived” collagen, fat or gelatin. These products are “haram” or not acceptable in their belief system.

Halal products are also cruelty-free. Because the Islam faith respects all earth’s creatures, no animals should be harmed. Halal products and cosmetics are permitted by Islamic law because they are made without the forbidden ingredients.

Halal products are made from all natural sources including plants, raw and unprocessed materials. No animals are harmed in any way to create these cosmetics and skin care products. So many women, especially the Millennials and those who live a holistic lifestyle and care about the way products are manufactured, are embracing Halal.  So that being said, many women in all walks of life, not just Muslims, are seeking natural products that will give them peace of mind and beautiful, healthy skin.

Here are four reasons Halal skincare is trending worldwide:

  • Halal products are holistic
  • They are cruelty-free
  • Halal products are made from natural resources
  • They are trending worldwide

Vegan

Vegan skincare is products that are manufactured without any animal or animal byproducts. Like a vegan diet where no meat or products from an animal is eaten, vegan-friendly skincare does not include any animal byproducts. It is made from plants, minerals, and safe synthetic ingredients. This differs from a vegetarian diet that includes eggs, cheese, and milk.

Vegan skincare products should not be confused with cruelty-free like Halal products. Vegan products are all about the ingredients rather than the manufacturing process. Consumers are becoming more and more educated and interested in the products they are applying to their skin. Because of the way our world’s animals and environment are affected by their production, vegan skincare is increasing in popularity. And that goes for dermatologists and health care providers, too.

Vegan skincare is natural and uses minimal ingredients that nourish the skin, unlike other skincare that is full of chemicals, fragrances, and irritating ingredients. Vegan skincare contains more good for the body ingredients like vitamins, minerals, and hydrating antioxidants.

Here is why vegan skincare is good for the skin:

  • Vegan products contain no animal or animal byproducts
  • The products use minimal ingredients
  • Vegan products nourish the skin with vitamins & minerals
  • They are endorsed by dermatologists

Organic Skincare

Organic skincare products are created from superior, high quality, organically farmed ingredients without pesticides, chemicals, herbicides, antibiotics and other harmful chemicals.  They are part of the growing worldwide trend that consumers want to know what they are applying to their bodies.

The benefit of organic skincare is the movement towards being kinder to yourself, your environment and the planet. Numerous research indicates that there is a connection between chemicals and illnesses. The synthetics in many skincare products and chemicals that are ingested into our bodies. Using organics offers a balance that delivers nutritional benefits and beautiful results. The bottom line is they work better than other products and are better for your beautiful skin!

Guest post: A Complete Guide to Autumn Skin Care

GUEST POST: Brigitte EvansHigh Style Life

skin care-autumn

Summer is nearly over, and autumn is knocking on our doors. This means that many things are about to change, and that doesn’t include only taking a break from our summer wardrobe. New season requires a whole new approach to skin care because with the weather getting colder, your skin will become drier and more prone to cracks and damage. But let’s not stress about it; here are all the things you need to do to keep your skin healthy and radiant this autumn.

Stop using soaps

Soaps and other products that contain fragrances sure smell wonderful, and they can make you feel refreshed after a long day at the beach. However, using them during autumn can leave your skin dry. Instead, you should try soap-free cleansers and other fragrance-free products.

Use oil-based exfoliators

Exfoliation is important for removing dead skin cells and helping your skin absorb all the creams and lotions you are using for that perfect complexion. There is one thing to keep in mind during this season, though ‒ oil-based scrubs are better because they exfoliate and hydrate at the same time.

Opt for thick moisturisers

Your hydrating lotion might have been working quite fine during summer, but now, when the weather is becoming harsher, you will need to upgrade your protection to thicker moisturisers that are capable of keeping your skin hydrated even during the cold autumn months.

Don’t forget your hands

Your hands are the perfect target for chilly weather, and to prevent them from becoming cracked and dry, you should invest in a quality hand cream.

Protect your lips

In summer, you need to protect your lips from the harsh sun; in autumn, you have to shield them from cold winds – it’s the natural life cycle. Just like your hands, your lips can also crack and dry out because of the weather. Prevent that by using a petroleum-based lip balm.

Grab a youth serum

Oh, you haven’t heard about it yet? There is an ingredient that can reduce the appearance of brown spots caused by the long hours spent on the beach, smooth the texture of the skin and delay skin ageing. It is called retinol (vitamin A). Now it probably sounds more familiar. You can find it in serums or ask for a prescription retinoid.

Get your body in shape

Let’s face it, no one works very hard during summer, which means that you have probably put on a pound or two on your vacation. This is something you will most likely notice when you try to fit into your favourite pair of jeans. There is a quick and healthy solution to it, a non-invasive procedure called body sculpting, which will ensure that you are free of all those persistent pockets of fat without hurting your skin.

Don’t ditch your sunscreen

You’re not going to the beach, so you don’t need sunscreen anymore. That sentence makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? Well, not exactly. The sun isn’t going anywhere, even though it seems to be losing its power. It can still affect your skin and cause it to age faster. That is why it is important to apply sunscreen every time you go outside.

Sleep on silk

Sleeping on silk may sound overly posh for your taste, but there is a logic behind this. Silk pillowcases are known to help prevent skin redness, dryness and acne breakouts. Since it is a natural product, silk is also hypoallergenic. Therefore, it is a win-win situation ‒ sleep like a diva and wake up looking like one.

What have we learned, girls? Autumn can be cruel to your skin, so don’t forget to protect your gorgeous skin from the harsh winds and cold days!

Azenti Organics – My Review

Hello, beauty fans!

Its been a couple of weeks since my last post for which I am sorry. My day job is pretty exhausting at the moment! I’ve also been writing for other sites where I can – keep an eye on my social media feeds for links to those posts!

Now that I finally have some time to write for my own blog, I wanted to share a new brand I have discovered with you! This brand was unknown to me until my mother brought it to my attention because she knows the creator!

Who is Azenti Organics?

Azenti Organics is an organic skincare provider. They create skincare products formulated by a skincare and aromatherapy professional. The products are made from the highest quality, organic, plant based ingredients and designed to target specific skin types. The founder of Azenti Organics is professionally accredited and qualified as a Skincare Products Practitioner, an Aromatherapist and a professionally qualified Holistic Facial Therapist.

Azenti is:

  • against animal testing
  • supports ethically sourced ingredients
  • uses recyclable packaging and
  • promotes wellness

It is based in the West Midlands but operates nationally. The products range from face oils, body care and remedies to home fragrances and spa treatments. They also offer a wellness subscription, which operates like a beauty box subscription!

What did I test?

I was given the opportunity to test two of the products, a face oil for oily/combination skin and a tropical body oil. I received full-size versions of both, allowing me to test them properly for the last few weeks.

The Face Oil

This oil is gorgeous!  It contains Omega 3 and 6 and is a dry oil. It is designed to help clear congested skin, refines pores, regulates sebum, increases cell turnover and boosts collagen. It contains Organic Fruit and Seed Oils with Plant oils, giving it a pleasant scent on the skin.

When I started using it, I found it lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin. My skin did not feel greasy after use nor did it leave any residue. I used it every morning and some evenings too and I noted that my skin felt soft, brighter, dewy and most importantly there were no breakouts! It’s a truly lovely oil and I would certainly consider buying it in the future!

The Body Oil

I LOVE this oil! From the beautiful packaging to the scent, which is truly tropical, its a delight. I love that I can see the ingredients through the bottle! The oil contains the organic scents of tropical coconut and pineapple, along with nourishing organic sunflower oil that absorbs easily into the skin. It also includes:

  • vitamins A, D and E
  • organic thistle oil packed full of skin friendly omega 6 which helps to clear congested skin
  • organic apricot kernel oil which protects and rejuvenates and
  • organic rosehip oil which has been clinically tested to minimise the appearance of wrinkles promotes collagen and elastin levels and helps to delay the effects of ageing

So, all in all, it’s very good for you!

When I started using it all over my body, I noted that it was very much like a dry oil, absorbing quickly into my skin and leaving a lovely sheen without feeling oily. My skin remained soft and nourished for hours and I could still smell the tropical scents for a little while after use. It also worked well on particularly dry areas like the knees and elbows and calmed some areas of eczema I had developed!  I have been using it every day and so far there have been no downsides – it will definitely go onto my skincare favourites list!

final thoughts

Overall, Azenti Organics produces some lovely products, all good quality and all beneficial to the skin. The ethos of the company is admirable and they ensure that all aspects of the business are ‘world’ friendly as well as creating affordable and varied ranges. If you like using organic products and want to support a brand that values the world this is the company to try. You can see all their products here.

Arbonne Skincare – My Mini Review

Hi there, beauty fans!

I hope you are all well, this post has been a little delayed as I have been really busy with other projects – check out my last post here to find out what I have been up to in the last few weeks!

So, in this post I want to promote the brand Arbonne! On my journey through the blogger world I met a lovely lady called Danielle Clark who is an Arbonne Consultant and she very kindly offered me the skincare samples below to test. I came across Arbonne a few years ago too and at that time I tested a makeup primer, which was gorgeous, a body oil which I still use now and facial exfoliating pads which had a great effect on my skin! When Danielle offered me the chance to test the skincare range I was really keen to, so I could see if the brand was as good as I remembered!

Arbonne Samples

All these samples are from the RE9 range which is their leading anti-ageing range.

The collection contains:

  • A facial cleanser
  • A regenerating toner
  • An intensive serum
  • A corrective eye cream
  • A restorative day cream
  • An extra moisture restorative day cream
  • A night repair cream

Given the sizes of the samples I used everything up within a few days, however this was enough time to gain a flavour for the quality and effect on my skin! My initial thoughts for each product are:

  • The Cleanser

I used this every morning for a few days. The cleanser is a gel like consistency and felt lovely on the skin, leaving it feeling soft and clean afterwards with no tightness.

  • The Toner

As with most toners this was a clear liquid which I used after the cleanser on a cotton pad. I did not need a lot to sweep over my entire face and my skin remained soft and hydrated afterwards which was great as many toners can be too astringent and leave the skin too dry and tight.

  • The Serum

I love using serums on my skin and definitely think they are important as you age to keep the skin supple and nourished. This serum was lovely and light but left my skin feeling hydrated and smooth. I also didn’t need too much to cover my face fully.

  • The Eye Cream

The eye cream was one of favourite products from the samples! It was rich and thick and soaked into the delicate eye skin really well. My eye area felt deeply moisturised afterwards and I could see the area brighten after use! A definite must try!

  • The Everyday Day Cream

This cream was quite thick but absorbed into the skin well and there was no leftover residue or film after use, which for me is important as my skin type is oily combination. My skin felt plump and soft afterwards and looked fresh and smooth and whilst I did not have enough product to fully test if it had longer term anti – ageing effects I would be very surprised if it didn’t!

  • The Extra Moisture Day Cream

I used this only on days where the weather was colder as I think this cream would be best used in the colder months. It was very thick and rich and very moisturising! As with the everyday cream, it did not leave my skin feeling greasy but I could tell I had used a richer cream from the way my skin felt. I would certainly consider using this in the Winter when my skin can be very dry and rough.

  • The Night Cream

Looking after my skin at night is very important to me and is also a lovely night-time treat! I have used lots of night time skin care products and I really liked this cream – it was quite buttery to the touch but absorbed well and my skin felt great the following morning too!

All in all, I was very impressed with the Arbonne RE9 range. Everything was good quality, had a pleasant fragrance and did not make my skin react or breakout in any way. With continued use I can believe the products would have a positive effect on the skin and keep it healthy, smooth and soft. I cannot comment on whether it would also tackle any fine lines and wrinkles simply because I would need to trial everything for much longer but based on my experience I don’t see why it would not improve them in the long-term. I would definitely think about buying the full size products once I have run out of my existing skincare products! If you would like to know more about Arbonne you can check out Danielle’s link here.

I hope you enjoyed reading this review and will consider trying Arbonne in the future! As always, would love to read your comments and do share and follow my blog if you don’t already!

See you again soon,

The Body Shop Beauty & Skin Care – My Review

Hi, beauty fans!

I can’t believe it is already May 2017! This year is flying by but so far it has been a positive one! I have already been presented with some very exciting opportunities and I have met some lovely people – long may it continue!

The Body Shop

One such opportunity I was given was to review a selection of skin care products and makeup from The Body Shop! One of my old school friends is now a Body Shop Consultant and thought I would be interested to try some of the recent ranges so she kindly sent me some samples. In return, I offered to do a review of the products and now after a few weeks of testing everything I am finally able to write this post!

I have loved The Body Shop for years, mainly for their body care and the lovely Christmas ranges they always create each year! I had never really tested the skin care or the makeup so this was a real eye-opener, for me! This is what I received:

On the left are the following products:

  • Lip and Cheek Stain in Vineyard Peach
  • A Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask sachet
  • An Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil sachet
  • A Drops of Youth Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask sachet
  • Drops of Youth (Facial) Concentrate

On the right are samples of the following:

  • Amazonian Acai Mask
  • Instablur
  • Ethiopian Honey Mask
  • Chinese Ginseng and Rice Mask
  • All in One BB Cream
  • Drops of Light Day Cream
  • Vitamin C Liquid Peel
  • Drops of Youth Youth Cream
  • Oils of Life Revitalising Cream
  • Drops of Youth Liquid Peel
  • British Rose Mask

You can imagine how much fun I have had trying all these lovely samples! I managed to use everything a few times each to get a real feel for the products and how they affected my skin, and my review of each is below:

  • Lip and Cheek Stain

This product comes in 9 shades – I tested Vineyard Peach, which was fortunate for me as I love peach makeup! The actual stain is a creamy texture and very easy to blend into the skin. The colour is quite pigmented in the bottle but once on the skin, it provides a wash of colour rather than a super intense look. It can be built up to achieve a deeper more noticeable blush but I actually liked that it gave a more subtle natural glow. It has the same effect on the lips and doesn’t dry them out, but I preferred it as a blusher simply because I like my lip colour to be more obvious.

More Info: Lip and Cheek Stain

  • Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

I was very excited to try this mask as I have heard so many good things about it and about Charcoal in general. It’s unlike any other mask I have ever tried! It contains bamboo charcoal, tea tree oil and green tea leaves and the texture was a slightly loose, grainy but non-abrasive paste. The fragrance was pleasant and it doesn’t completely dry once applied but won’t easily move or drip either. I applied it for up to 5-10 minutes and then washed off and my skin looked and felt gorgeous! It was smooth, plump and soft and brighter than before. I got 3 uses from the sachet and the result each time was very good – I am sure if I was to use it as part of my regular skincare routine it would have long-lasting positive effects!

More Info: Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask

  • Oils of Life Revitalising Facial Oil

This range is designed to provide radiance to the skin. Everything contains 3 seed oils – Black Cumin seed oil, Camellia seed oil and Rosehip seed oil, as well as essential oils and olive oil. It has a strong, slightly spiced scent and feels lovely on the skin. It absorbs easily and the skin feels soft and nourished afterwards. I am a big fan of facial oils and this one is a definite must try. As you don’t need more than a couple of drops at a time, I was able to use this oil a few times morning and night and I definitely noticed how great my skin felt and looked.

More Info: Oils of Life Revitalising Facial Oil

  • Drops of Youth Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

When I saw this amongst the samples I was so happy, as I love trying products that work overnight! This mask is designed to fight the first signs of ageing and provide plump fresh skin. The mask is a milky colour in a gel-cream formula and it smooths over the skin beautifully. You don’t feel like you’re wearing a mask at all! It isn’t sticky or wet once applied so my face didn’t stick to my pillows or bed linen and when I woke up my skin felt gorgeous! Even after I washed my face my skin remained soft and full. This was one of my favourite products out of the samples and I highly recommend trying it!

More Info: Drops of Youth Youth Bouncy Sleeping Mask

  • Drops of Youth Concentrate

Another great product from the Drops of Youth range! This Concentrate is like a facial serum, in a milky loose gel formula and you only a need a pea-sized amount to cover your whole face. It absorbs quickly and gives the skin a slightly blurred effect! This is great if you want to reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines! As the sample I was sent was a good size, I am still using this and I love it!

More Info: Drops of Youth Concentrate

  • Amazonian Acai Mask

   

I love face masks! Trying all the sample masks was skincare heaven for me! This mask almost feels like a scrub as it is slightly grainy! It smells really fruity and smooths onto the skin as a gel. I left it on for 5 minutes in each use and afterwards my skin felt fresh and soft and almost dewy! Its designed to invigorate the skin and it certainly did that!

More Info: Amazonian Acai Face Mask

  • Instablur

This product does exactly what the name implies! It is a soft clear putty which once applied blurs lines, pores and skin blemishes, leaving the skin very smooth and soft, ready for foundation. You can also wear it without makeup and it has the same effects. I normally use Benefit Porefessional to hide my pores etc. but I would consider switching to this now I have tested it!

More Info: All in One Instablur

  • Ethiopian Honey Mask

This mask smells and feels heavenly! It looks like it could be actual honey and has a definite honey scent, warm and comforting. It glides onto the skin as a thick gel, remains moist and after leaving on the skin for 5 minutes it washes off to leave radiant moisturised skin. If you suffer from dry skin it would be a great mask to replenish the moisture in the skin.

More Info: Ethiopian Honey Mask

  • Chinese Ginseng and Rice Mask

This was by far my favourite mask! It looks more like a scrub than a normal face mask but it is designed to exfoliate the skin as a mask. It has a creamy consistency with very fine rice grains and when I tried it I massaged it into the skin before letting it set, just to get some extra exfoliation from it! As with the other masks, I let it sit for 5 minutes and then washed it off and my skin felt simply amazing! So smooth and soft, more so than any of the other masks I tried and the texture of my skin looked and felt like it did when I was a child! This mask is definitely going on my wishlist!

More Info: Chinese Ginseng and Rice Mask

  • All in One BB Cream

This was probably my least favourite product. I don’t wear BB creams generally as I prefer foundations, so this product was already fighting an uphill battle! To be fair to the product, it does do what it is supposed to in that it adapted to my skin tone well and I did not need a huge amount to evenly cover my face. My skin did look more even after application as well. However I like my base to provide medium to full coverage which this did not do, not surprisingly as a BB cream, and I also did not like the smell of the cream, which was almost medicinal.

More Info: All in One BB Cream

  • Drops of Light Day Cream

The Drops of Light range is designed to brighten the skin and diminish dark spots. The effects become more apparent after a few weeks of use so I would need to keep using this product to determine if it does brighten the skin. However, after using it a few times I did find that it moisturised my skin well and left my skin dewy and smelling great! You can tell from the appearance of the cream itself that it has brightening qualities so I would expect that in time it would have the effect it states but I would have to keep testing it to be sure!

More Info: Drops of Light Day Cream

  • Vitamin C Liquid Peel

Peels are another skin care product I really love to use! After testing Cure Natural Aqua Gel, I realised how amazing a face peel can be so I was excited to try the Peels in the samples. This Vitamin C Peel was my favourite of the two I tested and my second favourite product from all the samples. It has a fresh citrus smell and turns from a gel into a liquid when applied to the skin. According to the description, you can let this product sit on the skin and then peel it off however I found it worked far better if you gently rubbed the liquid over the skin – you could see the dead skin flaking away! After rinsing the skin, it felt soft, fresh and smooth and looked brighter and less textured. This is another item I will be adding to my wishlist!

More Info: Vitamin C Liquid Peel

  • Drops of Youth Youth Cream

This cream is luxurious, thick and rich. It’s super moisturising, has a lovely comforting scent and leaves the skin feeling deeply hydrated and plump. As it is so rich, you don’t need much so I still have some of the sample left and will use it when my skin needs an extra dose of moisture.

More Info: Drops of Youth Youth Cream

  • Oils of Life Revitalising Cream

This is another thick nourishing day cream. As with the other Oils of Life sample, it has a lovely slightly spicy fragrance and whilst it feels oily on your fingers once applied to the face it absorbs well and there is no oily residue. The skin feels soft and supple after use and after continued use, you should see a reduction in the visible signs of ageing. I cannot vouch for that yet but just from my limited use, I would definitely consider buying it in the future.

More Info: Oils of Life Revitalising Cream

  • Drops of Youth Liquid Peel

This was the second peel I sampled, from the Drops of Youth range, however, I did not find this one nearly as effective as the Vitamin C Liquid Peel. To start I did not like the smell of the product which was very strong and almost astringent. I also found that whilst it did remove dead skin the result was not as noticeable as with the Vitamin C peel and I found that some of the peel was difficult to remove, especially where I had tiny facial hairs. If I had to choose which to buy the Vitamin C Peel would win hands down.

More Info: Drops of Youth Liquid Peel

  • British Rose Mask

This was the final mask I tested. As the name states, it’s all about the rose and should give you dewy plumped skin after use. It smells gorgeous and has visible rose extracts in the gel. After leaving it on my skin for 5 minutes and rinsing, my skin did feel fresh and soft but I have to say it was no more noticeable than any of the other masks. What I liked about this mask was the scent, which lingered on the skin even after removing it. If you love the rose scent then you’ll love this!

More Info: British Rose Mask

And that is the end of my Body Shop samples review! I have loved trying so many lovely products and luckily my skin has reacted well to everything given how many different things I have tried! It has also been great learning more about The Body Shop ranges and I have to say I would happily buy skincare from there now!

I know this is a particularly long post, but I wanted to make sure I covered every single product in enough detail to help all of you decide whether to spend your hard-earned money on them! Hopefully, I have done that and you’ve enjoyed reading this – if you have, I’d love for you to like and share the post and if you have any questions about the products feel free to leave them in the comments!

See you back here soon!
