March 2017 Favourites

I thought I would start doing a monthly favourites blog post as I love to read this type of post and watch Youtube videos on the same subject. 

I am planning on making them family orientated so they will include things that I have loved using on the kids, cleaning products etc.

This month I have been poorly so this first favourites post will be focused on two products which have kept me feeling human!

First up is the Soap And Glory Smoothie Star Body Buttercream 300ml*

Give me anything Soap and Glory related and I will love you forever, they are my absolute favourite. This was actually a Christmas present and I'm still only half way through. I do tend to save it though for when I have had a bath and my skin is feeling dehydrated. It smells of vanilla and reminds of a Yankee candle in the same scent. 

I do suffer with dry/sensitive skin and this always sorts it right out. I have also never had a reaction to it, which unfortunately can happen with other body butters. It's super thick and feels so much more expensive than it actually is. It contains 5 different oils so I think that must be what makes it so dreamy to use. Definitely check it out if your looking for a new body butter. 

Secondly is the Garnier Pure Active 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub, Mask 150ml*

Now let's get real, my skin has been horrendous! I am 30 this year and my skin was never this bad when I was a teenager. It is making me so self conscious and I have never had an issue before with leaving the house with no make up on. I seem to be getting break outs mainly on my forehead, around my hairline. Possibly hormonal? I'm not sure I need to do some research. 

I love the fact that this product does three things. I use it every day as a face wash and it does such a good job. Some face washes just don't leave your skin feeling clean but this really does. It can also be used as an exfoliating scrub which I love for times when my skin is feeling dry. The mask feature is my favourite though. I normally put it on one or twice a week before jumping in the bath and it only takes three minutes to dry and do it's magic.

I have combination skin so an oily t-zone but the rest of my face is dry. I have noticed that since I started using the face wash around a month ago, it has improved by t-zone and evened out my skin slightly. Now, I still have breakouts but I find that they now clear up a lot quicker than before. LOVE this product!

Both of these have made me feel more like me when I have been poorly this month and it's the little things like these that really help.

    1. Thank you Kim, feeling a lot better now xx

  2. Love Soap and Glory! Haven't tried this Body Butter, but I love the Righteous Butter from them. Also the Whipped Shower Cream. Fab face product 3-in-1, great for when busy. I have been making loads more time for pampering and have noticed such a difference in my skin, plus it is nice to have some 'me time' xxx
