christmas bundle

sunshine and teacups

I’m a bit of a sucker for a Christmas bundle as I just think they are so fun and you never quite know what you’re going to get. I’ve recently discovered the website who have created a few different beauty product bundles for Christmas. They kindly let me choose a bundle to send me so I had a choice between the women’s and kid’s bundles so I of course grabbed the women’s one (although I would not be opposed to a Peppa Pig bubble bath once in a while). It does show you suggestions of a few products you might get but it does say it might vary so I didn’t really know what I would actually be receiving which is intriguing. The bundle is £36.99 which I did think was quite a lot of money to spend on something like this but now seeing what I received it…

#FriendsMasking Challenge

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I was very ambitious in November and decided I would try to participate in 2 Instagram challenges. I enjoy taking part in these challenges and it gives me the motivation to use up my mask collection! I used a lot of the same masks in this challenge that I did in #MarvelousMaskChallenge. Read on for the themes for each day and if I had a mask that fit the theme. I did not have a mask for every day but I did most of them.

This challenge was based on the different kinds of friends that you might have.

1. The Bright One – Manefit Lily Whitening and Brightening. The serum in this was thick and sticky and I didn’t like how it felt on my face. It did lighten and brighten but felt super sticky doing it.

2. The Responsible One – Epielle 3-Step Complete Facial Kit Vitamin C…

100% Cruelty-Free – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Vanilla Body Butter

Mrs Strawberry Blonde

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 Christmas-themed body products – Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter.

These products were part of a small gift set which I bought last year. I spotted the exact same gift set at Superdrug just a few days ago. So I decided to give these products a try!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub smells like… Christmas cookies! The scrub itself is nice as well. It’s easy to spread, it’s not too harsh, but it’s effective!

Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter is lovely. The body butter is very rich, and the fragrance is the sweetest, warmest and cuddliest spicy vanilla. Fantastic stuff!

Sweet Snuggles Christmas Cookie Body Scrub & Sweet Snuggles Vanilla Body Butter are available as part of Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Bathing Set which I saw on sale for £3.50 the other day. The body scrub…

Ulta Haul

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

I don’t really need an excuse to spend my money at Ulta. But when they had both The Body Shop and Soap & Glory on sale I had to go. I love bath and body products as much as skincare and makeup. Of course, I did pick up some small makeup items. Read on to see what I picked up on my last visit.

Soap & Glory was having a Buy One Get One 1/2 off. So, I had to take advantage of that. I tried Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub and The Righteous Butter and loved them both. I wanted to try some new products.

Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub  –  features a super skin-smoothing blend of cupuacu scrubs, banana, almond, and honey extracts to gently polish, smooth, and moisturize the skin. This has the perfect scent for winter. It smells warm and cozy. I…

Empties November 2017

Makeup and Skin Care for Mature Skin

Wow. I used up a lot of stuff this month! It is hard to believe 1 person could use so much in a month. I am still trying to go through a stash of bath and body products and am thrilled when I finish more than 1. Read on to see if I finished more than 1 bath and body product this month. I am not including all the masks I used this month since I will talk about those in a Friday Instagram update post.
