It’s not a pretty subject or one I thought I would write about but going through some hair loss after giving birth and seeing how many women suffer with it, I thought why not. I’ve been losing chunks of hair … Continue reading
They say the essentials to happiness are to have something to do, something to love and something to hope for. Now I have all of these things, sometimes too much to do, too many to love and lots that I … Continue reading
Today I wanted to share with you a 2-in-1 product that I have been LOVING at the moment and it’s a bargain around £4.00. What more could you want?
The Neutrogena Visibly Clear is a 2-in-1 daily wash and weekly face mask> Here it is ready for my bath, along with my jammies and Liberty of London print scrunchie 🙂
The consistency is quite thick as you would expect a face mask to be but as soon as you give it a rub under the water, it turns lovely and foamy. It feels really luxurious which I wasn’t expecting when I first started using it.
It starts tightening straight away, ‘scuse the trout pout! haha. I thought I’d better take a photo mid application. Again, it feels so luxurious and goes on nice and thick. It has a cooling effect which feels great, it states to leave it on for 5 minutes but I left mine on while I was in the bath. The mask is designed for a deep clean and to tighten pores, which I totally think it does.
The lighting isn’t great but my skin was left feeling super clean, my pores reduced and this morning my skin had the healthiest glow. I would say this mask is best for combination to oily skin, which mine is, especially if i’m hormonal.
What beauty post would be complete without a Lush product, this is Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. Just take it into the shower or bath with you, apply over your wet skin and wash off just like a hair conditioner for your skin.
Seriously, thank me later! 🙂
Well, I hope you enjoyed this post my lovely. If you have a face wash or mask you swear by let me know, I would love to hear from you.

I want to start with saying that this weather is playing havoc with my skin, hair…well everything really. So I wanted to show you some of my favourite beauty essentials I reach for at this time of the year.
So I’ll jump right in!
The first buy this time of year for me is from VO5’s ‘Smoothly does it’ range This is the Tame and Shine spray and it also acts as a heat defense when you are styling your hair. The heat activated formula is great for your hair before you use your straighteners and it manages my frizzy bits after I’ve blow dried.
My second must have is Rimmel’s 60 Second Super Shine Nail Polish and my one is in the colour ‘Rose Libertine’. I love this colour as a transitional shade from Summer to Autumn. The dusky tone suits a lot of the clothes that I wear this time of year.
The third on my checklist is Pantene’s Argan Oil Hair Treatment. This stuff is like hair elixir, I swear! I don’t know about you but at this time of year my hair feels dull and dry, it really needs some life put back into it. I apply this liberally to wet hair, mostly mid length through to my ends. Once I have blow dried it, my hair feels so smooth it’s unreal. I also rub a bit through my ends when my hair is dry if they are looking a bit fried.
My fourth fancy is Lush’s Vanilla Dee Lite, now unfortunately this moisturiser has been discontinued 🙁 (Lush fans despair) This is the perfect blend of fragrance for me, I often find vanilla tones in body butters or mositurisers smell really fake. This is perfectly musky! Also as a bonus it doesn’t leave behind a yucky oily residue you might have experienced with moisturisers before. I do have a recommendation as you can’t get hold of this one anymore
and it’s Lush Body Lotion, Dream Cream. This has the same sort of texture and ingredients, so it soaks up on your lovely skin just the same. Give it a go, you won’t be sorry.
My fifth and final buy is my most loved Baylis and Harding Foot Cream. I love Baylis and Harding anything really so I’m not too precious on what scent I have. This sweet manderine and grapefruit scent is to die for. This time of year my feet really suffer, I think it’s my reluctance to give up sandals and flip flops 🙂 This cream is super moisturising and feels so luxurious. Best of all, it lasts flipping agessss because you only need a tiny bit on each footsie. Bargain!
Well there you go my lovelys, click on the product name links to whisk you away into internet land to buy these goodies if you like. I don’t think you would regret it. I’m fairly frugal so nothing on there is gonna make your recoil in horror at the price 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this post, leave me any comments about your best buys. I’m always on the lookout!
