REVIEW: Burts Bees Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream.

Hey! Today I've got a review for you all, enjoy!

Recently, I've been having really sensitive skin and since then I've decided to be much more careful about the products I use and I'm trying to only use natural products. Burts Bee's is a brand i've always liked but I've never really tried their skin care products and I took this as an opportunity to do so! So, I picked up a gift set full of all sorts of different mini items and the one I'm going to be reviewing is the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream.


Firstly, the scent of this cleanser is really lovely. It's not too over powering but at the same time it is very pleasant. It's a cream cleanser so you can use this to remove make up by applying it to face and wiping it off with a warm, wet cloth. Of course you can also use it alone if you wish which I have also done. 

The texture of the product is quite thick and of course creamy. It's quite heavy but it spreads well around the face and you don't actually need too much to cover your whole face - even with eye makeup included. It also gives your face that tingly feeling - the one you usually get with products that have mint in them or with those plumping lip gloss products. It's not an uncomfortable feeling though and it's actually quite refreshing - perfect for those early mornings!

The thing I like most about this product is the fact that it doesn't annoy my skin in anyway. I've had no breakouts and it's very whilst still making me feel like it's actually doing something at the same time. My skin does feel softer and more hydrated after use and overall, I really like this cleanser. I like it so much intact, my full size version is on it's way in the post.

You can get Burts Bees from several online shops such as FeelUnique or Amazon as well as shops like Boots and Holland and Barrett. The full size product retails at around £10-11.

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you found it interesting and helpful. Have you tried this products or any others from Burts Bees? What are your thoughts - any you would reccommend?

Bonjour! I'm back again with another outfit of the day for you, enjoy...


So, today I wore this long-sleeved, oversized baseball style top. As it was oversized, I wore it with some black leggings. I actually think you could get away with this top as a dress because of it's length - something I might have to try one day!

On top of these two, I wore a denim jacket and finished the look with some black ankle boots and a tan coloured bag.

And that's it! I hope you liked this post, thanks for reading.

Hello all! It's been a busy past few weeks which is why I haven't posted much. However, I'm back today and I've got an outfit post for you all - enjoy!

So, today I wore this oversized polka dot blouse which I tucked into a high waisted skirt.


I accessorised the skirt with the addition of a tan belt. I wore black tights, a knitted navy cardigan and some cute Chelsea boots to complete the look.

It was a tad on the cold side this morning so I just wore this light weight parka over the top of everything!

And that was my outfit for you today, thank you for reading this post and I hope you liked it!

ASOS Haul!

Hello all :) I have a mini haul for you today from Asos - enjoy!

So let's jump straight in with two little beauty products I got. I don't have a lot of premium beauty products, simply because I like my money to go further than into just one product. However, I do believe that certain products are worth the money and Benefit is one of my favourite premium brands. So I picked up the much raved about Hoola bronzing powder - a little bit of this goes a super long way and I don't overly bronze anyway. Therefore I think I can justify the price tag of this product - which was £23.50.



The last Benefit product I got was their Erase Paste concealer. I'd been on the look out for a high quality concealer and this one is super creamy and the tiniest bit goes a long way. When it comes to elements like concealer and foundation, I'll always be happy to spend a little bit more because it's the most important part of my make up to me. Plus, considering products like this and foundation go all over the face, I really want to make sure the product is of a high quality. This concealer was £19.50 and I got it in the lightest shade which was '01 Fair'. 



Moving on from beauty, I picked up this really pretty bun garland. Wearing a bun has been one of my most favourite hair styles as of late and I really wanted something to dress up the style a bit so I think this will work nicely.



And lastly, I got this daisy print backpack. I've never really had a backpack style bag before but after seeing this one I couldn't say no. I'm more a should bag kind of girl really, but they can be quite a pain sometimes, especially when you have quite a bit to carry.


That's everything I got from Asos! I hope you enjoyed this haul post, thanks for reading!

REVIEW: The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum Oil.

So, as you can see from the title, today I have another review for you all. This time it's a skincare product from The Body Shop!

I love products with Vitamin E in so I had to give this a go - especially considering I'd heard quite a few good things about it. This products costs £12 and you can purchase yours from your local Body Shop or alternatively on their site!


This oil is really nice and lightweight - don't be afraid of it if your skin tends to get oily because this product does not cause break out and like I said, feels lighter than most oil products. As well as this, it sinks nicely into the skin, replenishing it overnight. This means that it doesn't just sit on top of your skin doing nothing, it actually works through the night leaving you with really soft, healthy looking skin in the morning.

It's ideal for combination-oily skin, I'd probably stay away from this product if your skin is very oily but if it's sort of in between, definitely try it out! As it's an oil serum, a little bit goes a very long way so this is definitely worth it's price tag.

This is another one of my favourites from Vitamin E line that The Body Shop has and i'd definitely recommend that you give it a go!

Have you tried this product? What did you think? Let me know!
