Here’s what I’ve been using and loving lately…
Echolife Rose Facial Mist - If you know me and read my blog you will know that I’m obsessed with facial mists, this is no exception, I love it! It’s refreshing, relaxing and uplifting all in one, before makeup, after makeup, before bed, anytime I need a pick-me-up this is my go to :)
Echolife Bath Salt Crystals - this is hand harvested, macrobiotic sea salt from the Great Barrier Reef. Ahhh I live absolutely no where near the ocean but these bath salts bring the ocean to me, perfect for after a workout or after a long hot day.
Tom Ford perfume sample - This was sent to me from the lovely Su, I love it, it’s a scent that can be referred to as a head-kicker (stealing that term from you Dee) when I try (or buy) perfume I go for the loud smelly stuff, the ones that scream I’M WEARING PERFUME ALL BOW DOWN or pass out from my presence, which ever comes first. This is sex, cucumber and chocolate and perhaps cock, anyway moving right along this perfume makes me horny, it makes me feel sexy and powerful even when I’m not and to be honest I really need that in my life right now, hello post natal fug-a-rama/blues whatever you want to call it. The sample caused me to buy a bottle, HOORAH!!!
Bare Minerals original - I haven’t wore makeup since my skin problems, however I decided to give my Bare Minerals foundation a go (it’s been in my favourites before) and it was fab, it stayed on and didn’t irritate my skin. I love this foundation in warmer weather.
Body Crystal deodorant - I’m a leetle bit of a hippy and I also have paranoia towards particular deoderants, this is my go to, I’m not sure if it really works hence the next product in my line up…
LUSH Dirty body spray - It works to cover any foul BO I may be emitting haha oh and it smells amazingly minty and oceanic.
Invisible Zinc Junior - This was sent to me for consideration, I like it, I’ve long been a fan of the IZ ESP (which I purchased myself) but wanted something a bit lighter, this is great, it applies easier than the original ESP formula and is slightly runnier in consistency. It still has a bit of a white cast but it doesn’t really bother me, it stays on my face during exercise and is easy to remove at the end of the day with my cleanser and microfibre cloth.
Pure Fiji Coconut Milk shower gel in Mango - I received this in a Lust Have It box and I do adore, it smells lovely, somewhat mangoish and gives a nice creamy lather, it’s one of the pricier shower gels but I would definitely consider a full size if I felt the urge to treat myself.
Haus of Gloi Red Roan whipped soap - YUM, smells like porridge with strawberries, this is creamy and lovely, I tend to use this one for shaving my legs/pits etc.
MooGoo Anti-aging face cream and MSM Soothing cream - I’m a MooGoo fan girl, these will be repurchases over and over and over again. They keep my skin healthy and happy with fab ingredients such as MSM, Resveratrol, stabilised vit C, vit E and many more. It’s good simple skincare that does not irritate :)
Yes To Tomatoes deep cleansing facial pads - Slightly abrasive but non irritating, I don’t have any blemishes to mention but I like these simply because of the feeling it gives to my skin. A 98% natural product that’s designed for acne treatment, I don’t use these everyday but perhaps once a week if I’m feeling a bit icky.
Yes To Cucumbers facial towelettes - I’m a lazy mofo, oh man I am laaaaa-zzzzyyy, sometimes I am so lazy that I cannot be arsed to even bother washing my face, these are the perfect solution, blended with organic cucumber, aloe vera and dead sea minerals they clean my face and freshen me up, ta-da!
Quinoa - Last but not least (and not really a hot weather essential) I have nearly mastered the art of quinoa, it’s been quite the journey, even involved me almost losing my fingers (well not quite, but still blood was shed) The texture is awesome, kind of similar (but not really) to caviar or chia gel, I just like the feeling of the granules in my gob. Perfect with anything :)
*As mentioned everything I purchased myself except for the Tom Ford sample and Invisible Zinc Junior
