I always approach new body scrubs with a bit of trepidation, because so many of them are disappointingly weak and un-scrubby. There was no need to fear in the case of this Nip + Fab Circulation Fix Body Scrub*, though, because it is actually a good scrubby scrub!
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
I recently picked up this travel-sized tube of This Works Daily Boost Body Scrub with RED magazine. This Works is a brand I’ve wanted to try for a long time, and I’ll admit, it’s largely due to the lovely minimalist packaging and the descriptions of the scents, which all sound very luxurious. This scrub says it contains grapefruit and rosemary to stimulate, and tourmaline (the precious stone) to improve blood flow. All very fancy. On using this, I found that there’s one big pro and one big con, so: Continue reading
A tiny face-off today! I’ll be comparing two facial exfoliators from Lush that I’ve been trialling recently. I should point out that I have very easygoing skin and prefer a harsh scrub (gentle ones do nothing for me) so my opinions of these products may not be the same as yours if you have more sensitive skin… So let the battle begin!

Over the next 10 weeks, I’m going to be taking part in a really awesome blog series, The Starting Off/SO Project, run by Stephanie over at Steph’s Inside Voice.
The aim of this project is to give advice to people who are new to the world of make-up and beauty. I’m one of 120 bloggers who’ll be taking part, and Stephanie’s made a fantastic schedule of topics, so expect a new post at 6pm each Tuesday. On her blog, there’s a veerrrrrry long list of people taking part, so you should definitely check out their posts too!
This week’s theme is Skincare, which is perfect for a first post, given that looking after your skin is the first building block of beauty. Continue reading
Just a couple of little additions to my hoard! I helped a very lovely friend rearrange her room a bit over the weekend, and had a really fun time doing so. Unexpectedly, this led to my favourite kind of thank you – Lush things! Continue reading
St Ives Apricot Scrub is one of my absolute favourite beauty products. Want to know why?
Yes, you read that right, an exfoliating body butter.
This is another one of Lush’s in-shower/bath moisturisers, although it’s not quite the same as the Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner, since it comes in a solid bar format, rather than a tub.
BEWARE: Aqua Mirabilis is very melty – you’d probably be best to cut off a little bit to use for each bath or shower, rather than take the whole thing in with you. I used one sixth of mine, which was enough to exfoliate my entire body: arms, legs, feet, back, the lot. This really does go a long way, but it won’t if you get the whole thing wet!
