Bath time

For someone who loves baths I have possibly the most boring bath routine. I work weird hours and a lot of the time bath time means get clean and get out. Rather than relax have me time.

No matter what I’ll always be sat on my phone in the bath. Often I write my blog posts whilst in the bath. And I always bring my IPad to listen to music I just cannot sit in silence. If I’m having a relaxing bath sometimes even Netflix. I’ve learnt to take advantage of these luxuries whenever possible.

I hate sitting around in a face mask, I think I’ve mentioned it in a previous post. So I usually apply one before I get in the bath, I’m currently trying out the Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask. I’ve fell head over heals in love with their products and they’re currently on offer in Boots if you’re interested. If I’m not trying out a new face mask I’ll be using a trusty Lush face mask.

Boring as it is I shave and this is what I use. I have a love hate relationship with these blades, I just hate hate hate using them when you open a new one.

I never ever in my life have been fussy about body washes/shower gel’s I’ve always used whatever. But about a year ago I picked up a Body Shop one and I’ve been stuck on them ever since. Every now and then I’ll pick up one from else where in the hope it will replace the more expensive Body Shop ones but I’m too fond of them and I’m always drawn back to them. They are amazing though! 
Hair wise you guys all know I use the Head & Shoulders Scalp Relief shampoo I won’t wash my hair without this. Although I’m not a fan of the smell it really does help! On top of that I will use another shampoo and then a conditioner recently I’ve been using the Garneir Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner but I tend to change it up a lot. The majority of the time I’m drawn to shampoo and conditioners with coconut scents but I have tried a few apple scented shampoos that’s left my hair smelling gorgeous. I like switching up the scents every now and then so I notice the smells. 
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again there is absolutely no point in using a bath bomb daily. I see this as a luxury for a relaxation day. It gets pricey when you use bath bombs regularly and a lot of them leave colour around the edge of the bath leave petals or glitter residue that then has to be washed away. 
For example:I just don’t have time to be doing this daily. I keep to the basics, maybe I’m just super boring.

Once I get out of the bath the one thing that is compulsory moisture! I’m always using the Body Shop products but there’s so many different products you could choose! I love how strong the scents are of these and I can really feel the moisture in my skin.

Haulin’

Before I start apologies for the lack of posts things have been mega crazy recently. 

First is a Seventeen eyeshadow brush. I brought this like 2 months ago and completely forgot about it in the bottom of my bag. Yet to try it, and I’m not expecting amazing things just saw it and picked it. I believe it was £2.99 from Boots (I could be wrong). I could be pleasantly surprised by it, I’ll keep you guys updated.

Almost a repurchase I keep buying the Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo and conditioner’s, but I was yet to try this one so I picked it up. It smells gorgeous, can’t wait to use these on my hair.

A monthly purchase I won’t say much about it as I’ve got posts on it already. I. It this monthly I can’t wash my hair without it, really helps.

If you follow my blog you may have seen a post on sample testing and this was one of them. I went out and brought the full size product as I loved it so much. Although the weather hasn’t been amazing I thought I’d prepare for my holiday coming up!

More repurchases I ran out of both of these and these are my go to daily products. Again won’t say much as I’ve posted before. However, I did buy the Infallible Total Cover Foundation in 09 Light Sand rather than 10 Porcelain in the hope it will be lighter and match my skin tone better. I shall let you guys know how I get on with this shade.

This product has changed my skin literally overnight and I’m already in love. This is around £15 which made me a little more reluctant to purchase, but it’s so worth the money! 

A tub of pads to use on your face before you jump into bed. So easy to use and feels like it’s really doing something! Let me know if you want a full post on this! 

Boring! I know. I needed deodorant and picked this one up. Shocked myself as I only ever use Dove deodorants but so far I don’t mind this one at all.

A present from the parents for looking after the house whilst they were on holiday but I wanted to show you guys! I love the quirkiness of Moschino and just look at this! 

Is this not one of the coolest perfume bottles you’ve ever seen?! And to top it off it smells great!

Small Haul

 So many things I wanted to share with you guys the past month but with work and birthday celebrations I found it almost impossible. So why not show you a few things I brought recently? 

Firstly the Head and Shoulders scalp relief shampoo this is a repurchase and featured in my February favourites I love this and had to run out and pick this up as soon as I finished my other bottle! Highly recommended for dandruff or prehaps people who often wear their hair tight. 

I then brought the Garnier ultimate blends shampoo in rice cream and oat meal this smells lush! I brought this because I actually use the conditioner and I like to use another shampoo along side the Head and Shoulders one as it doesn’t smell the best. So I just brought this to go with my conditioner and it was on offer for £2 in boots, bonus! 

I then brought the Eylure accents 005 eyelashes and I brought these because as you can see I also brought the Fleur De Force ones. It was my birthday last weekend and the Fleur De Force ones are my favourite I really the 3/4 ones but I wanted something a little bit more dramatic for my birthday so I picked these ones up and I loved them.

I then picked up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr Gel-cream eyeshadow to in 93 Crème de Nude. I had heard amazing things about these so I eventually got round to picking this one and since have picked up a few more and I’m half tempted to do a review on them. I really had no reason for buying this I just fancied trying something different.

I then got the Revolution loose banana powder obviously banana powders been a massive thing over the past year and I had never tried it. So again I got this to try something new, I think I’ve been getting really bored of the products I use and just want to try new bits.

The Rimmel Stay Matte powder was the next thing I got again a repurchase and a pretty boring one everyone and their mum has this. But it is a great affordable powder and I just so happened to run out of mine. 

And lastly some Primark nails because why not? I do have clothes to show but I didn’t want to include them in this I wanted a separate clothes haul. Still thinking about how I’d display items but keep an eye out for that! Primark nails aren’t amazing however if you need nails quickly for an event they’re great and these ones were reduced down to 50p! And although you’ll very rarely see blue appear on here I do love the colour!

February Fav’s

Here’s a photo of my products I have absolutely loved throughout January some old and some new that I thought I’d share.

First was the Schwarzkopf got2b dry oil mist. I’ve had this product for a while now but I’ve appreciated it much more through December/January purely because the cold weather made my hair look dull and dry. This product however gave a little boost of life to my hair and allowed me to wear my hair down without looking crazy. This also has an amazing scent and because it’s a dry oil and is in a spray can it’s hard to make your hair look oily using this! 
Zara Juicy Notes perfume this is a lushious scent I can’t get enough of it and go can probably tell from the photo the bottle has lived in my bad and been my go to perfume. Zara perfumes are super cute and super cheap and I’m yet to find a Zara perfume that I don’t like. Would highly recommend for an everyday perfume so affordable! 
Head & Shoulders persistent dandruff shampoo. Unfortunately in the winter time my scalp tends to get dry and I suffer with dandruff which I detest. After years of trying to find an affordable anti-dandruff product I finally found this. This says it’s a 7-day relief however I wouldn’t say it’s quite 7-days but I did see great improvements. Although I dislike the smell of the product it works and using my normal shampoo alongside it gets rid of the smell. This has been a life saver this winter!
Coco Pure charcoal teeth whitening powder. I don’t want to talk to much on this as my last blog post was a review on it so if you’d like to know more head to that post. However I had to include it as it has been a new favourite I discovered this month and it really does work.
The Body Shop strawberry shower gel. This is a Body Shop classic and in the Christmas sales I decided to pick up the larger size and I have been loving it. I always use Body Shop shower gels and I rate them highly. Smells great feels great! 
Victoria’s Secret pure seduction dry oil fragrance. I absolutely love these dry oil fragrances and I managed to pick a few up in the sales. Personally I don’t think they’re quite worth the full price but I do really like them . Just a spritz lasts a long time and the smell is orgasmic.
Radial super acids x-treme acid rush peel. This is absolutely amazing I can’t even explain how much I rate this product. This has completely changed my skin it has literally been flawless, I feel so much more confident bare faced. You don’t need much of this product and the results last. The price however is a massive downfall although for the quality I’m hardly surprised. I will definitely be reviewing this very soon.
Nu Skin AP24 whitening fluoride toothpaste. This is my daily toothpaste and I have seen gradual changes since using this. I don’t have much to say about this product but I really wanted to include it because I struggle to find toothpastes I like. Quite often I dislike the taste of toothpaste, however this one leaves a very subtle taste in my mouth. Very pleased with the product.
And last but not least The Body Shop tea tree skin clearing mattifying toner. I hate the smell of tea tree so it’s a little odd that I even purchased this let alone included it in my January favourites. I really do like this product and I feel does really clear my skin when it’s not looking great. After washing my face I love using this it gets off any dirt that might have been missed and feels really refreshing on the face. I’ll be repurchasing as soon as I’m out! 
Hope this helped you out and you’re able to try some of these out, let me know some of your favourites!
