Cetaphil Skincare Range Review

I was really happy to receive a box full of Cetaphil* skincare to try out recently.  Cetaphil is a range that I have heard about and seen in store, but I have never tried it.  The Cetaphil range of products is gentle, dermalogically tested and pH balanced. The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is fragrance and soap free and can be used with or without water.  It helps dry and sensitive skin retain moisture and is non-irritating.  I really liked using this product as my skin is much drier and a little sensitive now that the cold weather is here.  The cleanser costs £8.99 for 236 ml.
The Cetaphil Body Cream is a long lasting, intense moisturiser that really leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft all day.  It never leaves skin feeling greasy, just really nourished. Again, this is a product for dry and sensitive skin. It costs £10.09 for 100g.
The Cetaphil Moisturising Hand Cream is one of my favourite products from this range.  It's really thick and creamy and protects my hands from the c…

Epic Empties Post - Part 2

Sorry it's taken me a while to get to the 2nd part of my empties post or should I say Epic Empties post.  I don't know where time has gone, I can't believe it's December already.   Here's the rest of the products I've finished over the last few months.  You can read Part 1 here. Benefit Instant Comeback Facial Serum - while the serum is fine I really don't like the bottle it comes in as it is a hard bottle which you can't squeeze, you just have to tip the bottle to get the product out and I end up getting way too much out.  I think I got this in a GWP bag.  It's not one I would repurchase. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum - another product I got in a GWP goody bag.  Nothing wrong with this product but nothing that stands out either.  It's not a product I would go out of my way to purchase. Supergoop Setting Mist with Rosemary - this is a setting mist with SPF50 which is a great idea. Bare Minerals Skinlongevity - this is another nice enough serum…

Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil Capsules

I posted about Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil* earlier in the year and you can read about it here.  I was recently sent the Fish Oil Capsules* to try out from the same range. You just need to take one capsule a day with food.   I do like this product in a capsule form and prefer it over the liquid (although if you are not good with taking tablets this won't be for you as it is a large capsule).   Wiley's Finest Wild Alaskan Fish Oil Peak EPA Omega-3 Supplement is 4x stronger than regular strength fish oil capsules and contains both EPA and DHA.  The liquid form does have a higher amount of EPA and DHA Omega-3 per serving than the capsule form. 

I won't repeat what I already posted previously which you can read about using the link at the top of the page.  
There are 60 capsules in the jar which lasts 2 months and costs £33.99 (there are smaller sizes available) and can be bought directly from their website here

The product is said to support healthy heart, vision a…

Lush Butterball Perfume & Perfume Oil

One of my absolute favourite Lush products is the Butterball Bath Bomb (for Christmas it is the Limited Edition Butterbear - so cute!). Containing fair trade organic cocoa butter, ylang ylang oil and cocoa powder, it has a rich, creamy, chocolaty scent that is simply divine and perfect for bath times.  The cocoa butter means that it is moisturising and skin softening and the fragrance is very comforting and relaxing.  When I saw that Lush now sell Butterball in a perfume and perfume oil I had to buy them both.

The Butterball perfume is £19 for 30ml.  I didn't really expect it to smell exactly the same as the bath bomb, but it really does.  I sprayed it onto my wrists and gave them a whiff and I was instantly transported back to chilled out bath times.  I love it.  The perfume oil is exactly the same, but a little cheaper at £12.50 for 15ml.  If you like sweet, creamy scents then you should try the Butterball range from Lush. Both of these products are suitable for vegans.

St. Moriz Tanning Products Review

I have a love/hate relationship with self tanning products.  I like my skin to have a lovely glow, rather than looking pasty white, but sometimes the effort of applying self tanning products is just too much for this self-confessed lazy girl. Now as a person who doesn't tan well (even in the heatwave we had in the UK this summer and when I have been on a 2 week holiday in Orlando), fake tan is a product that I need if I want to have any chance of a decent tan.    I received some tanning products by St. Moriz* to try out, so I thought I would give them a go.  I was imagining a streaky, orange mess on my legs and stains on my clothes (from past experiences when I was younger and products were not as advanced as they are now), but I ended up being very happy with the results and especially with the ease of application. Lets start of with the St. Moriz Professional Gradual Golden Glow Tanning Moisturiser* (£4.99 for 200ml). Gradual tanning/moisturising products are easily my favourite …

Great Ways to Earn Some Spending Money/Vouchers - Surveys

I thought I would post about Survey Sites as it's that time of year when we could all do with some additional money.  I find survey sites are a good way of earning cash or gift vouchers, so you can treat yourself throughout the year. As well as cash or vouchers you sometimes receive free products to test and review as well.  I have been paid on all the survey sites below, so if you have any spare time and want to collect points for cash or vouchers its worth joining these sites:
Surveys Valued Opinions - This is a really good site and you can build up your points fairly quickly.  You need to have at least £10.50 saved up to get a £10 voucher (there is a 50p admin fee) and you can get Argos & Costa vouchers to name a few. Amazon is also included but you need £15.50 saved for a £15 voucher.  

MySurvey - You can earn points to receive vouchers from the likes of Amazon, M&S, iTunes or have money paid into Paypal.  This is a good site if you go on regularly and it's easy to bu…

Fresh Sugar Lemon Body Lotion Review

As the cold weather has now set in this is usually the time of year that my skin gets very dry.  This year though I have been usingFresh Sugar Lemon Body Lotionand I have to say that my skin has never felt softer.  I use it predominantly on my legs and honestly they are so smooth that it's become my favourite body lotion.   It is a lovely creamy consistency and it sinks into my skin quickly. The smell is divine as well, it's called Lemon Body Lotion and it smells lemony but not in a synthetic way.   You can purchase this product on the Fresh website here £21 for 300ml, so it is a product to treat yourself to for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey.  
You can read more about the brand here.  Although Fresh does not test on animals it does sell in China.
I have a few more products from this brand so I might do a brand review at some point.  Let me know if there are any products you recommend.
This is a short and sweet post today as I just wanted to let you know of this great pr…
