Cucumber and Eucalyptus

Cucumber mask

I did enjoy this Freeman Cucumber Peel-Off Mask, even though I don’t like peel-off masks! Freeman facial peel-off cucumber mask is a refreshing facial mask that gently peels away impurities, while cucumber, melon and ginseng extracts leave your skin silky smooth. It is made with natural, botanical ingredients to help you look and feel your best. Clarifies and Renews Skin. I must admit I wasn’t really looking forward to using it as I thought the smell of cucumber might be too much, but actually it was very subtle and fresh, which was great. The only problem I had is that I used half of it and then stored it away in a plastic bag to use the other half later, but I didn’t keep it upright and it’s very fluid, LOL! So yes, I lost the rest of the pack which was a shame, but I would probably buy the full product at some point. You can get it at Amazon for £3.13 for 150ml

DD Cream

I picked up this Superdrug DD Anti-Ageing Cream in Light a while back as I was curious as to what it was like – I’m a user of BB Creams and CC Creams, but this was my first DD cream. Superdrug Anti-Ageing SPF20 DD Cream provides sheer illuminating coverage, which immediately conceals discolouration and imperfections, while helping to neutralise and protect the skin from daily aggressions, preserving skin’s youthfulness. With UV protection to help defend against premature skin ageing. The 7-in-1 formula also provides all day moisturisation and helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier whilst Glycolic Acid gently dissolves surface skin cells helping to diminish the appearance of pores, hyperpigmentation and fine lines over time. Benefits: Promotes Skin Detoxification; Protects and Strengthens Skin; Effectively Conceals Imperfections; Resurfaces and Refines Skin and Pores; Diminishes Discoloration, Fine lines and Wrinkles; Provides All Day Moisturisation; SPF21. I wasn’t really that impressed with this one, I’m afraid – not enough coverage and no staying power. I used it up only when I knew I was staying in for the night, LOL! You can get this at Superdrug for £4.95 for 50ml – which is their half-price offer at the moment, but I’d advise spending your cash elsewhere …

Dentyl

I use Dentyl Active Plaque Fighter Smooth Mint Mouthwash every evening and I love it. It’s alcohol-free which is hugely important to me. Effective alcohol-free mouthwash with active ingredients to keep your mouth clean and healthy; unique formula that powerfully pulls bacteria and debris that can cause bad breath, plaque and gum disease; kills up to 99.9% of oral bacteria in lab tests; soes not sting, tastes great and gives you long-lasting fresh breath. You need to shake it up first to make sure the two parts of it blend properly before you use it, but that’s no problem. I’ve already restocked this one. You can get it for £3.85 for 500ml at Amazon.

Sanex

I love Sanex Dermo Sensitive Shower Cream. It’s brilliant for my sensitive skin on the back, neck and chest areas and I use it every day. There’s no scent and it makes my skin much better. I’m never without a bottle of this one! You can get it at Boots for £3.25 for 500ml and it’s a real bargain.

Squeeky Clean

I picked up this tube of Creightons Squeeky Clean Saint or Shimmer Lotion as part of a bargain at Poundland and it’s really nice. Get glam with a glorious glow with Squeeky Clean saint or shimmer lotion. Packed with skin friendlies, vitamin E, coconut oil and sweet almond oil, this divine shimmer lotion gives an instant all over healthy looking glow and leaves skin feeling irresistibly soft and smooth. This has got everything I love in a body lotion – Vitamin E, Coconut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil – hurrah! The scent is very comforting and it’s not too coconut-focused at all. It makes you feel far more glamorous and elegant than the price would have you believe! Yes, there’s a slight shimmer but it’s very subtle so nothing to get concerned about. Next time I’m in Poundland, I shall look for it again. It costs – you guessed it! – £1.00 for 100ml and I recommend it.

Vick

I’m nothing without my Vicks Vaporub! Contains: menthol and camphor to calm a cough; eucalyptus and menthol to relieve nose congestion; eucalyptus to relieve catarrh. I use it every morning on my neck before I go to work, and then every night on my neck, chest and back before I go to bed. I don’t do the steaming suggestion as I just find it too much – I’m very delicate, you know! It’s wonderful for my catarrh and helps keep everything under control. I’ve already got a back-up. You can pick this up at Boots for £4.36 for 100g, and it’s a little miracle.

Have a great weekend and welcome to April!
