Does anybody else see skincare products in green packaging and instantly think of really refreshing things or is it just Me?
I’ve really been trying to help my skin recently and rather than spending my money on make up I’m buying skin care products. I’ve been wearing make up less and often preferring only eye make up. Recently when I’ve been wearing make up I find myself wanting to wash my face in the middle of the day randomly. It all feels really heavy on my skin and I’m just loving this fresh sort of feeling right now.
So in the hope of finding a product that’ll improve my skin and become a new fav of mine I’ve brought more bits to test out.
Now I’ve never tried one of these and we all know I love my Lush face masks. Soo if I’m honest I wasn’t expecting to like this much but I was curious and wanted to try a tissue mask.
First thoughts, what the hell this is the scariest thing I’ve ever seen. Not only did it give me a fright it was also a nightmare to put on! I honestly found this so difficult to keep on the my face and half of it wasn’t even touching my face where the shape was so off. Now I don’t know if I have a weird shaped face or this mask does. But my mouth nose and eyes were all slightly off and it just wasn’t working for me.
At first it felt refreshing but after 2 minutes I just waned to take it off and let my face breathe. It was a relief after the 15 minutes was up. I did actually really like the product that was on the mask and found myself squeezing the product out of the mask and then applying it to my face, felt so much more refreshing!
I always always always use the Simple face wipes I think they’re some of the best face wipes. But in the hope to find something more inexpensive I tried the Johnson’s face wipes and I’m actually really liking them.
They’re only face wipes so there’s not much to say. The quality still isn’t as good as the Simple ones, but they’re still gentle get my make up off and smell great!
I love a face scrub. And my current one I’ve been using for years so I picked up this one to try out. And so far it’s not too bad smells fresh but I’m yet to see results from this. My skin feels soft after use but no real results just yet but I’m going to give it time and keep using it.
Just wanted to apologise for the lack of posts I’ve been super busy with work, driving lessons and commissions. Hopefully it will all calm down soon and pay off. I’m spending today (my only day off) writing a load of posts so I have something to post even if I am super busy!

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!
