*KELO-COTE Scar Treatment

Image
    *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I was recently sent *KELO-COTE Scar Treatment to try out.  KELO-COTE Scar Treatment helps soften and flatten scars, reduce redness and relieves itching.   This treatment can be used as soon as the wound is closed, stitches are removed or the scab has fallen off.  The affected areas needs to be clean and dry and then you apply a thin layer of the treatment onto the scar twice a day (you do not need to rub it in).  The treatment drys in 5 minutes to form a flexible, waterproof, transparent layer (although you can remove any excess product if it does not dry completely.  You can apply sunscreen and makeup once the treatment is dry. I have found that this product is  quick and easy to use.  It forms a thin barrier over any scar and drys as stated in 5 minutes so you don't need to worry about it being wiped off your skin.  I don't notice it on my skin at all as it doesn't tighten over the scar and you really can

Primark Reusable Cleansing Pads, Cutlery & Bags plus Instore Recycling Scheme

Image
Primark is one of those stores that is almost impossible to come out of without purchasing anything.  If any store is responsible for fast fashion then Primark is at the top of the list, so I have been trying to cut back on purchases and at least try to buy products that can be reused instead of thrown away.  Here are some of the reusable products that I have bought recently in Primark. I purchased Alex Steinherr makeup Remover Pads which cost £1.50 for 2 and are like a thick flannel material in a round shape which you can use with water to cleanse your face and remove makeup. The wood cutlery set cost £1.50 and comes with 4 knives, forks and spoons.  I purchased 10 reusable cleansing pads for £2 which are 73% bamboo and 27% cotton and are vegan.  These are a great alternative to face wipes and cotton wool pads and come in a bag that you can keep the used pads in and then throw them straight in the wash. Finally, I purchased a couple of reusable organic cotton shopping bags. The large

Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF30

Image
Being that we had a heatwave in the UK in June, SPF is a must right now (although I do wear SPF even when it's not sunny). I hate how greasy some sunscreens make my skin feel and it's hard to reapply without getting grease everywhere and staining my clothes. One of my favourite sunscreens is Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen as it's lightweight, completely invisible and does not make my skin look greasy.  It's easy to reapply throughout the day and it doesn't clog my pores. It even doubles as a primer before makeup, because it leaves a lovely smooth base.  It contains UVB high protection, it's SPF 30 and it's also water resistant and oil-free so this product is great for all skin types. It doesn't leave a white cast on my face and is fragrance free. It's not cheap at £30 for 50ml, but it's a product that I repurchase again and again. I like Unseen Sunscreen so much that I bought a couple of other products from the same range -  Supergoop! Glow Stick

*Happiness Habit Jar 30 Days of Inspiration By adbra

  *I received this product for free but the opinions are my own. I was recently sent a Happiness Habit Jar * 30 Days of Inspiration with Positive Affirmations.  It couldn't have come at a better time as l ast week was a stressful one at work, I knew it was going to be very busy even before 2 people called in sick.  I could just feel things getting on top of me and then a package arrived in the post with  the Happiness Habit Jar.  The jar was so colourful with all the different notes in that I couldn't resist opening it straight away (you might notice in the photo below that the string isn't as tightly wrapped as it should be because I couldn't wait to open it).  I'm one of those people that tends to just get on with things and probably lets things build up for a while before I break, this day was looking like it was going to be a bad one and my stress levels were rising. The first affirmation that I pulled out of the jar was 'I am resilient'.  This couldn

& Other Stories - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Dupe

Image
Sol de Janeiro's famous Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is one of my absolute favourite products ever, I just adore the scent (you can find my thoughts on the products from this brand here, here and here ). Unfortunately, as it is a rather pricey product at £44 for 240ml, it's a treat for me rather than a regular purchase, so I was intrigued to hear about a dupe for the scent sold by & Other Stories.  & Other Stories is one of my favourite stores and I have bought lots of jewellery from them as they sell really nice pieces at reasonable prices. They sell a range of products called Perle de Coco which I was informed smelled exactly like Brazilian Bum Bum cream (lets call it BBBC from now on) and it's much cheaper. Of course I had to go investigate at my nearest store and I picked up a couple of products to try out. First was the Perle de Coco Body Lotion which costs £8 for 350ml. As it's a body lotion rather than a cream, it is not as thick, rich and creamy as BBBC,

Life in lockdown Part 5 - The Never Ending Story

Image
I can't believe it's June already. Where has the time gone, it is just flying by so quickly which is strange as we haven't been able to do that much in lockdown.   I'm sure most of us would have holidays booked or have already been on holiday but hopefully we can get back to that soon  I definitely can't wait to go abroad again where my biggest worry is what to do that day.   Who knows what the future holds but hopefully with vaccinations now available there is light at the end of the tunnel.   I seem to have lost all my motivation over the last couple of months, I don't know if it was the rubbish weather in May or what but this last couple of weeks of brilliant sunshine it just seems easier to do things again.  I definitely enjoy these lighter nights as I feel like I can get much more done. Anyway I thought I would catch up on what I have been up to since my last post.  I must admit that when the lockdown eased a little I did go shopping and bought a fair few t
