New in Skincare

After my recent holiday to Sweden and Norway (more on that soon); my skin felt sooooo dry, especially around my cheeks and nose.
My normal moisturiser just wasn't cutting it, so I felt I needed to up the game and try out some much loved skincare.
After browsing Look Fantastic trying to find something for my dry dry skin, I was recommended the Embryolisse Lait-creme Concentre and I'm so glad I decided to get it. At only £20 plus a 10% discount voucher it didn't seem overpriced. It has a nice smell and the creme itself is lightweight but really moisturising. I love it!

Next was the Eve Lom Rescue Mask which is a bit of a cult beauty buy and one I'd heard about before. So I was keen to try it out, but at £35 for 50ml it ain't cheap!!
It was different than what I expected and felt more like a clay mask with exfoliating bits, but after leaving it on for 10 mins (and sparingly applying it - that's 70p a ml!!) my skin did feel amazing.
Lastly, was this Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water, as my Caudalie Beauty elixir had run out and I could't justify another. So this sounded a little similar and it's cheaper and you get 5x more! I haven't had the chance to try it out yet, but I'm sure it'll be good.

What new skincare items have you been trying lately? Any recommendations?

A bit different for Easter.. Chocolate bark

This Easter I decided I wanted to make something a bit different to the normal Easter egg (note- I've never made an Easter egg!). I'd seen these chocolate barks or slabs, or whatever they're called, a lot on Pinterest and they looked so pretty.

Sleepy Sundays & the S+ by ResMed

Waking up on a Sunday and having a lie-in is probably one of my favourite parts of the week! Today's lazy morning included eggs florentine and an obligatory browse through my Instagram and Twitter feeds on my phone.

I usually look forward to my Sunday 'lie-ins' so much as I often feel exhausted from the week! If you're anything like me and feel like you stare at a screen 24/7 & find it hard to 'switch off' then you'll know the tired, almost exhausted feeling most mornings. I constantly feel like I struggle to wake up!

So you can imagine how excited I was when I got the chance to try The S+ by ResMed*. Which is the world’s first non-contact, fully comprehensive sleep tracking system and it launches in the UK on Tuesday – available on the website: https://mysleep.resmed.com/GB/en/ , ResMed clinics, John Lewis & Amazon.

Trying new make up

Two weeks ago I fancied a bit of a clear out of some old make up that I wasn't really using any more - or had gone out of date. So that meant I could buy some new make up, right? Out with the old, in with the new.
