Botanics Hydrating Day Cream | Review

I'm so happy that we got some snow yesterday, even if it was only for a little bit. I spent most of my morning looking at it out of the windows. It looks so beautiful when it settles. I was hoping we would get a little more, but after a while it turned to rain! It was definitely nice waking up to snow though. I hope you had a lovely weekend, mine was spent mainly making a nice stew and dumplings, watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix and catching up on blog posts. 

For todays post I want to share with you this moisturiser, in the photos above and below, that I am currently using and loving. This moisturiser previously featured in my My New Year Skincare Routine post. It is the Botanics Hydrating Day Cream, which you can find at Boots. It is 81% organic and contains rosehip. It smells amazing!

Doing More Of What I love

It's sometimes so easy to get caught up in so many different things in everyday life, that we automatically forget or simply don't have enough time to do the things we love the most. With our hectic schedules and endless amount of time doing things that we may not particularly enjoy, we start to miss out on the things that matter the most to us and what we do enojoy doing. You may have seen in a few of my previous posts, how I want to try and read more books, write more, take my photography more seriously and do more paintings. These are just a few of the things that I enjoy doing the most. I don't want to end up regretting one day, that I have missed out on doing all of the many things that I love. Sometimes even now it will get to the end of the day and I just think about how I would have loved to have took some photos, or do a brand new painting to put on my Etsy shop. 

That's why I am trying to make more time to do the things that I want to do, what I love to do. Even if it means just spending 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there. It's making sure I spend some time, doing those things. Just by taking those few minutes out each day, it definitely helps me to feel happier and more relaxed. I read in an article that when we do the things what we love, we are actually more likely to be successful, happier and healthier. And I honestly believe that. For example, since spending more time on my blog and also publishing regular posts 4 days a week, I have found a whole new love my blog, which I talked about in a previous post recently. I love and enjoy my blog and by spending more time on it, I have noticed a much greater improvement with my writing, my photos and also the growth of my blog.

Pixi Glow Tonic | Review

I hope you are having a lovely week so far. I can't believe that it's the weekend already. Where has this week gone?! I haven't really got any plans for the weekend at the moment, but I definitely want to get some more photos taken for upcoming posts. I have however been watching the brand new episode of The Good Place, one of my new favourite shows. In a previous post, I mentioned how I had binge watched the entire season 1 and most of season 2. Now I've got to wait another week for the next episode, but it's so worth the wait. If your looking for a new show to watch, highly recommend giving it a watch. There's also a major twist in it that you definitely wont expect!

As this week has mostly consisted of beauty products on ClemLoves, I want to continue with that and share with you another of my most favourite products that I have been using and really enjoying. Other than the Mario Badescu facial spray of course, the other product I am really loving is the Glow Tonic by Pixi. It's definitely a product that I highly recommend checking out. You can find this product online on sites such as, ASOS, Cult Beauty and Marks & Spencer. You can also get this in two different sizes.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray | Review

I remember quite a few years ago I decided to try a facial spray, but after using it for so long I just didn't really use it anymore or purchase another facial spray. It's a product I usually see other bloggers and YouTubers talking about in the skincare products they use, but it's only until recently I've found a whole new love for using a facial spray when doing my daily skincare routine. If you read Monday's post, you may have seen that I have recently been using the facial spray in the photos above and below in my morning and evening skincare routine. 

Having never tried a product by Mario Budescu before, I was really excited to try it, especially after hearing lots of great things about this brand. I remember watching one of Zoella's videos quite a while back and she was using a product by Mario Budescu. This product was one of the prizes I won from Hannah, from Hannah Heartss. Thank you so much Hannah 💕. I am absolutely loving this facial spray and it's become one of my most used products.

My New Year Skincare Routine

I love it when you find new skincare products that really work and do what they say they do. I also get really excited because I love finding new products to try and that I can continue using. Growing up I just could never find products that I wanted to stick with. Some either dried my skin out so much or brought me out in spots, or made my spots worse. During the colder months, my skin does have a tendency to get quite dry. But my skin does also get quite oily still. So it's kind of hard sometimes to find products, that help dry and oily skin but are sensitive at the same time! 

I've been using these products in the photos above and below for a little while now and I am absolutely loving them. I actually won some of them in a giveaway in December, from the lovely Hannah, from hannahheartss and they are literally my new favourite skincare products to use. I've already noticed a difference with my skin. Having never tried any products by Pixi and Mario Badescu before, I was really excited to use them, as I've heard lots of good things about both brands. I love products that are hydrating but don't cause my skin to be even more oily!
