Review: Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser*

I was recently sent a sample of the Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser to try, and oh, is it heading straight for Holy Grail status. You know how much I love honey scents and products, and this is a great addition to my skincare routine. Goodbye, Boots Botanics, I’m in love with the bees! Continue reading

My Spring Skincare Routine!

Well, despite the occasion drop (flood) of rain, we’re well and truly out of winter, and it’s time to switch up my skincare routine a bit! My skin tends to be better the warmer the weather gets, plus I’ve discovered some fantastic new products that have made their way into the regular crowd on the bathroom shelf…

In the morning, I tend to favour slightly lighter products, while I keep a heftier moisturisation up in the evening, but still lighten things up a little. Continue reading

Review: Origins Never A Dull Moment Brightening Face Cleanser

P1050185

 

 

I recently wandered into Debenhams and found myself accidentally having a mini facial at Origins… I had no intention of going for one, but I’m so glad I did. I’ve been wanting to investigate Origins a bit further since I fell in love with the Drink Up Intensive Mask, and I’ve not been disappointed! Continue reading

Review: Boots Botanics All Bright Skincare Range

P1050049

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I really rate the Boots Botanics range of skincare, and the All Bright range is my personal favourite for my skin. I’ve previously reviewed the cleanser, but I’ve been slowly accumulating the rest of the range, and have been enjoying it! I thought it would be nice to showcase several products in one review, and show you how it all fits together. I now have the Gentle Cleansing Cream, the Cleansing Toner, the Purifying Face Scrub, the Cleansing Foam Wash, and the Hydrating Day Cream. All the products are under £5, and can be found on the Boots website here.

The whole range is formulated with plant extracts which are supposed to provide brighter skin. It has no parabens, is ‘people-tested’, and the packaging is made with at least 25% recycled material. The packaging itself is basic, but neat-looking – white plastic with a striking pink and green hibiscus flower on. Overall, the range gives off a simple and clean vibe, perfect for the budget skincare market.

Let’s take these in the order I’d normally use them! Continue reading

My Winter Skincare Routine

P1040298

Wow, it’s cold at the moment! Definitely a multiple-pairs-of-socks time of year… And since there’s no way to wear multiple pairs of socks on your face (well, not while maintaining a normal social life), it’s also the time of year that I beef up my skincare routine a little bit to make sure my skin is protected from the cold. Continue reading

Review: Lush Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser

Remember my love for St Ives Apricot Scrub, and how no scrub could ever top that for me?

Well, hold on there just a minute.

I might have fallen in love with Let the Good Times Roll cleanser from Lush.  Continue reading
