Bath Time Ritual

Is there any better way to unwind and pamper yourself than having a luxuriously indulgent bath? For me, nothing else quite compares. That moment when the bath oils, salts or bubbles hit the hot water and fills the house with heavenly aromatic scents; just describing this makes my shoulders relax and breathe deeper. My love for baths and all the delicious products that accompany a true bath time ritual started at an early age. It was the perfect time to escape the world and allowed for uninterrupted thoughts. These days however I focus on true relaxation and mindfulness, oh and a good old body scrub! Most recently I've become accustomed to a full body 'dry brushing' routine before hopping

Plie' up on the skin

Plié Treatment cleanser by Jordan Samuel. I was gifted this cleanser by a good friend in America, thank you @.......... It's something that I was desperate to get my hands on after reading such positive and raving reviews. Now, I have to be honest, when I initially felt the texture I was a little apprehensive (actually terrified). It's skin reacts terribly to balms!! They either bring me out in sore spots and more often than not contribute to my contact dermatitis, especially on my eye lids. I know I should do my ingredient homework to get to the bottom of this issue but I'm a lazy girl, so would rather avoid them instead!! Eventually I took the plunge and gave the cleanser

A drink for the skin :)

BABOR SKINOVAGE Intense Balancing Cream The light fragrance of this intensely hydrating gel-cream transports me to the warmer climates of my Italian getaways. To me it's summer in a jar; it has the most unique fresh scent and a texture which is ideal for quenching a thirsty skin after a day in the sun. I have not as yet booked a holiday but on the off chance I do, I will most certainly be taking this little gem with me to combat against any dehydration. As per usual I was apprehensive about trying this cream as its generally a little denser/ bouncier in consistency than I'd prefer. I really feel I'll never escape this irrational fear of heavy creams and serums!! I'm now wondering if ther

Nighty Night New You...

Bella Aura Night Cellular Renewal. It's becoming an almost impossible task to favour one product in this unique range. I've yet to personally find a skincare collection that quite compares. Serums, oils and essences are not a necessary companion for these lightweight serum-creams. They work efficiently on their own; offering potent, naturally sourced botanical ingredients that feed and nourish the skin. Yep it's official, I'm loving this range and its ability to transform my stressed and environmentally challenged skin within one application. It's an ahhh in a bottle and what a bottle! The Night Cellular Renewal emulsion is housed in a classic glass black bottle; so not only does it's c

Bella Aura Skincare Range

The Bella Aura skincare range is something that's intrigued me for quite some time; with its potent natural ingredients that promise to deliver a radiant glow. We all want a glowing youthful complexion and personally this is my main skin goal. I want my skin to look energised, healthy and alive. I received the Essential Energy Boosting Kit which consists of their 5 skincare products; quality not quantity! I was initially concerned that the 10ml tubes wouldn't last long enough for me to do thorough and fair review; that was until I opened them. The very smallest amount is needed. The scent is exquisite...... Neroli; a firm favourite of mine. My most treasured product out of the collectio
