BodyShop Summer Favourites


As you all have probably noticed, I get extremely dry skin, so a body exfoliator is an essential and there are 2 I am loving at the moment. The smell of coconut is my favourite Summer scent and Bodyshop create it perfectly. These 2 products are amazing to use together! Exfoliate while you are in the shower or bath and then apply the body moisturiser after, it leaves your skin feeling amazing for a good few days.


Coconut Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub –  The 50ml pot is only £6!! How amazing, you can have smooth skin on a budget.

Coconut Nourishing Body ButterAgain, you can buy a 50ml pot for £6 and it lasts long enough. The pot in the photo is 200ml but you can also buy a 400ml pot if you really like the product.

This photo is edited on an app called R4VE which I found. You can apply funky backgrounds and make photo collages of your photos.

Say goodbye to dry skin & hair this time of year


Recently I have been suffering with extremely dry legs. I have always had this problem ever since I was younger. One time when I was around 9/10 I did a gymnastics competition and I was so embarrassed about how dry my legs were that I went into the toilets and covered them in soap. I can not describe to you how much they stung, I sat in the audience crying my eyes out before I had to perform my routine.

I have always been a fan of garnier products as they have always worked wonders, so I thought I would give the lotion a try.

As soon as I applied this oil onto my legs, my dry skin disappeared, it was like magic. I couldn’t believe it haha, I have finally found a product that gets rid of my extra dry skin just like that. My skin has not gone anywhere near back to how bad it was before. I seriously recommend this product, especially as the sun is finally coming out.


My whole life I have never thought that it was important to look after my hair as I am extremely lucky to have healthy hair without any treatment. This is mainly because I have never been one to use straighteners, curlers or any hot products on my hair. For Christmas my boyfriends Mum gave this product to me and I have only recently started using it. It is only now that I have started to realise the difference in the quality of my hair.

Moroccan oil is often known as argan oil and is a very popular hair treatment for certainly dry hair, which has been my main problem, especially at the ends. It has been created to prevent split ends, control frizzy hair, gets rid of shiny hair, repairs damaged hair and can also be used to style hair.

I always try and apply this product after I have had a shower to not wet, but slightly damp hair. I feel like this is when it is the most effective as if I applied it when it was try it would automatically make my hair greasy.


Why do you get blackheads?

Blackheads form when a clog develops in the opening of hair follicles in your skin which produces oil. This oil is called sebum and helps keep your skin soft. Dead skin cells and oils collect in the opening to the skin follicle, producing a bump called a comedo.

So recently I have been suffering from a lot of blackheads all over my nose and my chin. I did a bit of research about it as I have never really had a blackhead problem before. Blackheads are formed by blocked/clogged up pores which is really strange as I am normally extremely good at cleaning underneath my skin. I came across these two products in Tescos which were at an affordable price, especially for a student, so instead of getting stressed about why I had them, I thought I would give them a go.


The Visibly Clear blackhead eliminator is the cheapest out of the two products. I have only used one of this companies products before at that was a face exfoliator and I loved it, so I new I would love this product as well. So I have now been using this blackhead eliminator for two weeks and it has worked a charm. My blackheads have definitely decreased as the scrub goes straight into your pores.


This product is even better. It is a slightly thinker scrub so you know it is really cleaning out your skin. It has tiny, blue bits in the scrub which you can feel whilst rubbing it into your skin. Instead of just using this blackhead clearer on my nose and chin, I have been using it all across my face as it has left it feeling so fresh.

I have been using my Vanity Planet electric brush to get the  scrub deep into my skin as it gives your face more pressure than just using your hand. This is a product in which I will never regret buying, it has worked wonders on my skin and I can rely on it to clean underneath my pours.

Let me know of any products you have used to reduce your blackheads.


“Aveda skin care has kept my skin feeling hydrated and healthy”

Recently I have come across this incredible brand called Aveda. They range from products for your skin, shampoos, treatments masks and they even have a mens range. This is a skin care kit in which I got in a pack of 3. A gel cleanser, toning mist and intense hydrating soft creme. So I thought it would be a good idea to talk you through how I use these products as a Spring skin care routine.

FIRSTLY: Firstly I wet my skin with water in the sink with my hands. I try not to use flannels as I don’t want to put too much pressure on my skin whilst I am trying to cleanse my skin, especially as you are going into your pores. I then wash my hands and squirt a teaspoon of the gel cleanser onto my fingers. Rub it all over your face until you feel like it has been absorbed by your pores. Sometimes I use my …… This will also exfoliate your skin and make it feel the best it can. I recommend one of these, they always come in handy.

SECONDALY: I try and use a facemark around 3 times a week, especially when i have been busy. This is my perfect way to relax as it makes you feel completely refreshed afterwards. In this Spring skincare routing I am using the …. which is one of my favourites at the moment. It is a green tea flavour and re hydrates your skin, especially when you have had a long weekend boozing with friends or at University.

THIRDLY: After leaving the face mask on for 10-15 minutes I remove it and leave my face to dry. I then use the intense hydrating soft creme to moisturise my skin and close up my pours before I spray the toning mist all over my face.

This is my skin care routine which I am loving at the moment. Clearing my skin and getting it back to normal through my time off University has been a struggle and these are the products which have majorly helped. Also eating clean play a massive factor and drinking lots of water.

4 instant confident boosters this Valentines Day

Primark Bralette // Kylie Jenner Lip Kit – Mary Jo // Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula – Natural Bronze // Gucci Bamboo Perfume

Everybody wants to feel their best this Valentines Day. Whether you are alone or with your loved one, these 4 instant confidence boosters are the top tips to make you feel ready.


Nice underwear on valentines day is ALWAYS a must. Again whether you are with you boyfriend or you are alone, wearing pretty, matching underwear will always make you feel 100 times more confident. When I am wearing matching underwear in the morning, I feel like I am ready to face the day.

These perfect Valentines Day undies are from Primark. Very cheap, very comfortable yet they always look amazing. Red is the best colour to wear as this colour instantly makes you feel sexy.


Wearing red lipstick will instantly make you feel powerful. My Kylie Jenner Lip Kit is my favourite red lipstick as it is one I do not wear often, but when I do it makes a statement.

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.


Being tanned in the Summer is the most amazing feeling. Your skin is glowing and you look naturally gorgeous so obviously this is a massive confidence booster. Obviously in England at the moment you will not be getting a tan. So I use a natural bronze body lotion.

Palmers: Cocoa Butter Formula – Natural Bronze Body Lotion


For Christmas my boyfriend bought me a new amazing perfume. It is Gucci Bamboo. Smelling amazing is a huge part of feeling confident because as you must all notice, when you forget to put you deodorant on in the morning, or forget to spray your favourite perfume, you feel an instant insecurity. So remember, overload yourself with perfume and re – do your shower routine and you will feel ready for valentines day!

Have a happy Valentines Day! What do you do to make yourself feel confident?

How to drink your skin healthy…


Try and drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Water is the best cleanser for the insides of your body and skin toxins. Increasing your water intake will give your skin that extra glow that not many products can give you. If your skin is not getting enough water, you hydration with end with dry and tight skin, which can also lead to early wrinkles in the future.


In the morning it is best to stick to either black coffee or tea. I normally go for coffee as it wakes me up in the morning. Having a cappuccino or latte is also OK but try and stick to just one a day! A smoothie is also a good thing to drink in the morning as it means you will start the day with fruit in your system. Especially when you are at Uni, it is the perfect drink before an early start if you are not too hungry.


In the afternoon it is best to drink green tea rather than filling yourself up on coffee. Green tea has an anti – ageing benefit that can delay any signs of ageing however old you are. It can stop sun damage, sagging skin, spots, dine lines and even wrinkles


In the evening try and drink a glass of cranberry with your dinner. (Read about why cranberry is good for you –


Before bed have a glass of detox water. This is cold water and ice, infused with cucumber, mint and lemon. This will detox your body before you go to bed, helping you relax and water and lemon are both very good for you.


Throughout this cold season your skin becomes a lot harder to look after. Being out in the cold for long hours can give you extremely dry and flakey skin so I have found these 3 different products that have helped me a lot. These products are cheap and easy to use, I have tried to apply them to my face every other day and it has kept the dry skin away. I also like to do a full routine the day after being on a night out, alcohol really dry’s out my skin and gives me spots. The scrub has worked the best for this.

  • Garnier Skin Active: 3 in 1 Clay – This product I have completely fallen in love with, I have never found a product that works as well as this one. It is a thick clay with tidy rocks in it that exfoliates your skin. You use a tiny bit, rub it all over your face and leave it to dry just like a face mask. I love to use this one while I am sat in the bath. After 5 – 10 minutes wash it off with a warm flannel and it leaves your skin feeling flawless.
  • Loreal Pure Clay: Glow Mask – I have been using this face mask for a while as I was hearing them being raved about through the whole of University as it is perfect for a chilled Sunday. You can get different types of this face mask and they all do different things. I decided on the Glow Mask as personally my skin is not that bad, I only get the odd spot. This is one of the best face masks I have ever used. I usually apply this after the Garner Skin Clay to cleanse my pours more due to the cold weather.
  • NSpa: Hot Cloth Polish – This product is the icing on top of the cake. It is the last product I apply to my face straight after I have washed off my face mask. I apply it onto a wet face and use my hands to rub it all over. I then use a boiling hot flannel to completely wash it all off. I have used this product for a while, but have only just started using it frequently again and I recommend it the most.

I hope your all having a good December. It is almost Christmas, whos excited?
