St Ives | Timeless Skin Daily Microdermabrasion Face Scrub

I am a huge fan of the St. Ives face scrubs as they are perfect for my sensitive skin. The one in the photos above is the Timeless Skin Daily Microdermabrasion Face Scrub. Microdermabrasion treatment are known to improve the skins texture and also reduce the appearance of fine lines. This scrub contains micro-fine mineral crystals that gently exfoliate the skin for a younger looking re-surfaced complexion. This also helps to keep the skin glowing and looking radiant. This scrub also contains camomile, vitamin E and 100% natural extracts. It is formulated without parabens and phthalates. 

To use this scrub I moisten my face with water and then put some of the product on to my fingers and gently massage all over my face. I then rinse off and pat dry with a towel. I use this every other day. I find that using a scrub helps to get rid of any blemishes I have and blackheads. This scrub is gentle enough on my skin and does not cause any irritation.

Have you used any of the St. Ives face scrubs?

Simple Moisturising Facial Wash

I recently decided to switch back to Simple skincare products, I love trying out different brands but unfortunately there are a lot of products out there that my skin just doesn't like. I have always loved Simple, mainly because they have no artificial perfume or colour and contain vitamins. Simple basically has everything I look for in a product. 

Above in the photos is the Simple Moisturising Facial Wash. This is from their Kind To Skin Range. It is 100% soap free and has no perfume or colour and contains vitamins. This face wash is great for sensitive skin. I find that this  does not irritate my skin at all and leaves my it feeling soft and refreshed. Another reason why I love the Simple range that I forgot to mention, is that their products are inexpensive. Usually when you pop in to your local drug store such as Boots and Superdrug, or even your local supermarket, you will always find Simple skincare products on offer. Mainly on a 3 for 2 or sometimes their products only cost £1.99 which is such a bargain. If your looking for a different brand to try and your on a budget, I highly recommend checking out Simple. 

I usually use this face wash in the morning and again at night. For my night time routine I like to take off my eye make up and face make up first then use the face wash afterwards. This is just how I like to cleanse my skin at night. I just apply a small amount on my fingers and then apply to my face and massage gently in small circles. Then I rinse it off and gently pat dry with a towel. Since using this face wash along with the other products I use from the Simple skincare range, I have noticed a great improvement with my skin as I was having quite a few breakouts. Please let me know in the comment section below whether you have tried any of the Simple skincare products.

Homemade Guacamole | Dairy, Wheat and Gluten Free

I recently decided to make my own Guacamole and was so pleased with the outcome. It tastes delicious and is very quick and easy to make. 

Ingredients - 

Cherry Tomatoes,
You can also add peppers and  lime/ lemon juice to the guacamole. 

Told you its easy to make!

First of all I mashed the avocados up in a bowl, you can use however many you like depending on how much guacamole you want to make. I used two in the photo above. I then got the cherry tomatoes and chopped them up in to tiny pieces. Next I popped in some some fresh chopped coriander. You can also put in some chopped peppers and add some lime/lemon juice.
This is delicious and is dairy, wheat and gluten free.

Christmas At Lush

I was super excited when I found out that Lush was going to be bringing out their Christmas stock (Two things I love, Christmas and Lush.) So it was only fitting that I went to my local store to have a peek. As I walked in I was mesmerised with the gorgeous scent that was drifting towards me and the beautiful colours of the bath products. I have a huge love for Lush stores because every single member of staff are so nice and friendly and always there to help. I went straight over to right hand side where the majority of the Christmas stock was and was I blown away by how colourful everything was.    

I also got the chance to see a demonstration of the bath bomb Northern Lights, which let me tell you, it smells amazing. With scents of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang this is a very relaxing and calming bath bomb, bursting with colours. What I also love about this bath bomb, is that once in water and this beauty starts fizzing away, lots of little stars start swirling around your bath. How great is that. Not only do you the magnificent show of colours, you also get stars. I loved it so much I even bought a couple for my mum and myself. 
A few of my favourites were definitely The Christmas Penguin, The Christmas Hedgehog, Dashing Santa, Father Christmas, Butter Bear and Drummers Drumming.
