As someone who has suffered from cystic acne from the age of 13, I’ve tried out loads of skin products over the years. I’ve always hoped to find that holy grail product and had some luck with various acids. However, when it comes to cleansers, toners and moisturisers, I’ve finally come to realise that nothing is probably going to help that much. Over the last few months, I’ve been trying out some Skintifique products without using anything else to see what happened. With scientific backing, claims to keep out pollution and metals and the promise to be kind to sensitive skin, these products were something different for me to try.
It’s the same story for my hands every winter. They get dry, crack, bleed and sting every time I wash them or use hand cream. This has only got worse since becoming a mother! Now, a new survey has shown that dry skin on hands ages them by an average of 9 years. Some hands were even ‘perceived to be 47 years older than their true age’. Meanwhile, healthy hands were ‘perceived to be younger than their actual age 56% of the time’. View Post
December is now in full swing and Christmas is almost close enough to touch! There’s always a lot to be thought about, from making the home festive to finding the perfect Christmas party outfit! Luckily, JD Williams have you covered for any eventuality, from gifts to decorations to sparkly dresses!
I have been getting so excited about Christmas over the last week or so. Festive scents fill the air, the decorations are down from the loft and there are even mini Christmas trees in the garden! View Post
I love shopping for clothes for Autumn and there are some lovely things around this autumn. I equally love finding festive outfits for her to wear for Christmas and Halloween. They’re only little once, so I feel I’ve got to make the most of it!
While I was window shopping, I thought as we’re now only a few weeks away from Halloween why not share my top pick of this year’s costumes for babies and toddlers in supermarkets and the high street! View Post
If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I only review products of brands that I’m genuinely interested in. Part of the beauty of what I do is that I get to work with amazing people and as well as working with brands I already know and love, I get introduced to new brands I can be passionate about too! Malée was not a brand that I’d heard of prior to the opportunity arising to review some of their products. However, they are definitely worth getting to know!
As I get older, I find myself increasingly worried about what products I’m using. Especially since becoming a mum, I find that I worry about what they contain. After all, I can’t stop Autumn from pressing her little face against mine or touching my skin. I also find myself being more concerned about whether products are cruelty free or not and their impact on the environment. View Post
