Lush Butterball Perfume & Perfume Oil

Image
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

Image
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

Image
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

Image
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…

Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies & Effervescent

Image
I am always looking for ways to improve the condition of my hair, skin and nails, so when I received the Bioglan Beauty Collagen Gummies and Effervescent* I was really keen to give them a go. The products harness the power of type 1 marine sourced collagen which is the most abundant form of collagen found in the body.  Clinical studies have shown that marine collagen helps to reduce wrinkle depth and increase moisture levels in all skin types. Each dose  of the Bioglan Beauty Collagen contains vitamin C, biotin and selenium. Considering collagen production begins to reduce by the age of 25, it definitely can't hurt to use supplements like these on a daily basis.  I found that the gummies were really easy to incorporate into my daily routine.  You need to take 2 daily and they taste like strawberry sweets, so there's no nasty medicinal taste with these.  It's almost like a little treat everyday with the added bonus that you are caring for your body at the same time.  Each ja…

Another Epic Empties Post - Part 1

Image
I haven't done an empties post since April so be prepared for this post as I have a lot to show you.  On the downside it does highlight how much plastic I'm using, which when you see how much damage its causing to the environment, especially the ocean, it is a wakeup call that I need to be more responsible going forward.  Having said that I have got a large stash to work through first of all, but hopefully I can change my habits for the better.  Anyway here goes with my empties for the last few months. I love love love Bath & Body Works and Watermelon Lemonade is my absolutely favourite scent from them which you can read more about here. I use loads of the foaming handsoaps and the PocketBac Anti Bacterial Hand Gelsas you can see.  Oops forgot about this one so had to take a separate photo.  In the Sun 24 Hr Moisture Ultra Shea Body Cream from Bath & Body Works is a perfect summer holiday beachy scent and is a really thick and creamy texture which leaves my skin feeling …
