Hello My Loves!
Sometimes a single product comes along that manages to be exactly what your skin needs and before you know it your reaching for it every morning. That is precisely what Ermana’s Skincare Comfort Balm has become for me.
Described as a rich blend of natural butters rich in vitamins and anti oxidants which hydrate, condition, soften and protect the skin.
It is a versatile product that can be used on any area’s that need a boost in hydration. I particularly love it for my lips first thing in the morning, the blend of natural butters and essential oils really help nourish my lips which make it the perfect base for those drying matte liquid lipsticks.
My other top use for it is for prepping those drier areas such as elbows and knees before applying fake tan. Just warm little product in your fingertips and wait for the balm to melt then apply. I always use this the day before I have a spray tan and in my opinion it really helps prevent the tan sticking to those areas.
All Ermana product’s are 100% natural and free from sulphates, parabens, artificial colours and fragrances.

Hello my Loves!
Now like most of us I’m a huge candle addict, if I go into a shop that sells candles and I can’t help but have a wee sniff. My friends constantly make fun of me for being unable to leave Primark without coming out with a packet of tea lights, who can blame me, they’re a total bargain.
However as much as they mock me for it, whenever they give me gift’s for whatever reason you can guarantee that there is at least one candle in the mix, so really they’re only aiding the addiction.
Which leads me to receiving the lovely Cherry Bakewell from Bomb Cosmetics. Normally I can be a bit fussy with cherry scents as I often find they can be a tad synthetic and overly sweet for my taste so I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this scent. Cherry Bakewell’s were a huge part of my childhood, my birthday parties weren’t complete without them being part of the menu which is why my friend Becky chose it for me. The sweet scent of the cherry and marzipan really create an uplifting scent that left me feeling nostalgic.
I felt the scent really managed to fill the room well and I could still smell it in the air the next morning which is always a nice bonus.
I will definitely be checking out some of the other scents that bomb cosmetics has to offer.

Hello my loves!
Now most of you know that I’m a huge Body Shop fan, they always have really good offers and promotions(perfect for gift buying) and I was lucky enough to be sent a few items from their new Polynesian Range.
I received the Shower Gel, Body Mist and Eau de Toilette. I believe that there may also be a body butter in the range. The colour scheme is a nice bright yellow with a flower pattern, perfect for the summer.
I would describe the scent as very tropical, it really reminded me of being on a nice Sunny Beach when on Holiday, it’s a nice mix of vanilla and coconut.
The shower gel creates a really nice lather from not much product so a little really does go a long way especially if you use a shower puff. The scent does last a while for a shower gel which is a nice bonus.
I love Body Shops Body Mists to carry in my bag for a quick spritz throughout the day. The packaging is really nice and strong since it is a glass bottle so you know there’s not going to be any accidental leaks when your not looking. This scent it perfect for a quick refreshing pick me up when I’m stuck in the office. Again the scent is quite long lasting so you don’t need to go overboard with the spraying.
Last but by no means least is the Eau de Toilette. I think this is perfect for day wear rather than night time as I prefer a heavier scent (I love their Red Musk) I received so many compliments at work about what perfume I was wearing and so many were surprised it was from the Body Shop, most thought it would be something more expensive (I believe it will retail at £18) I did need a top up at lunchtime for the scent to stay prominent but you could still tell it was there it was just more subtle. I think this would be the perfect perfume to take away with you on a sunny holiday or just to get you in the mood for Summer at home.
What is your favourite scent from The Body Shop?
Hello my Loves
Lush seasonal collections have to be my favourite time of the year to pick up some bath goodies. They’re always fun and colourful and vibrant collections with plenty of amazing products I can’t wait to get my hands on and I was most excited for the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb. Now at £6.95 he is a pricey fellow but it should be used for 3 bath’s so I think it balances out (plus with the price of chocolate eggs these days I think its pretty reasonable) The egg “shell” should crack down the middle leaving you 2 halves and contain a mini fried egg inside that can be used for your third bath. I will admit that I found cracking the egg open a bit of a struggle and had to use a knife to get it to split which felt slightly cruel to Humpty.
Humpty has a really nice citrus scent – Brazilian Orange Oil and Bergamot Oil – which creates a lovely uplifting bath-time experience. The bath-bomb turns your water a beautiful vibrant blue and yellow that really creates the prettiest bath.
I loved this bath bomb I promise Humty Dumpty wont leave you hanging. 😉
Have you tried any of Lush’s Easter range?
Hello my Loves!
With the weather in Scotland being absolutely miserable recently my skin hasn’t been the happiest.
I try not to wear as much foundation in the winter months to give my skin a chance to breath so the light coverage and hydration of this bb cream has been a saviour.
I often struggle to find bb creams to suit my skin tone as most tend to be far to dark for me and I’m left looking a touch orange so I was happy to see that the body shop’s bb cream had a light shades available.
I buff it in with a real techniques expert face brush and I think it blends really evenly and does give you a lovely hint of colour and pretty good coverage for a bb cream. For stubborn blemishes you will need a little concealer for them. But I just loved the dewy glow it gives my skin! Not one for those who like matte skin however, but i personally love the dewy look! Plus you can always pop a little powder on top.
Do you like bb creams?
If so, which one’s would you recommend.
