The Body Shop – Drops of Youth

Hiiiii So I’ll cut straight to the chase, lately, I’ve been concerned about the fine lines around my eyes, crows feet, or whatever you want to call them. I woke up one morning, looked in the mirror and I was like “where the ffff did those things come from?” It wasn’t a great day. Since then, […]

Hiiiiiiiii guys. So if you follow us on Instagram you would have seen a couple of posts about my winter skin essentials because I feel like as soon as my skin feels like winter is almost here it falls apart. I’ve tried many things over the years to get my skin to be a bit happier […]

Vaseline Spray Moisturiser

Making moisturising easier with Vaseline

Listen, let’s just cut to the chase here. I’m pretty lazy when it comes to moisturising, I will do ANYTHING rather than moisturising. It just seems like such a mission, and I have to keep on doing it every day? MISSION. And it just takes such a long time and I always feel like I’ve lost […]

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Hiiiiiiii guys. So today I’m talking about cleansing and make-up removing (for those who know me, yes I am often guilty of going to bed without taking off my make-up, I admit it). I’ve experimented with face washes, gel cleansers, masks, different make-up removers, and all of that, but to be honest I normally find […]
