Now it’s no surprise that I’ve not really been into skincare as such since surgery, as standing at the mirror and sink, is harder than you think.

I have however been using quick and easy holy grails, such as the #NipFab Dragons blood cleansing pads (these are a godsend)

Quick easy and fuss free pads, make my skin feel refreshed, super clean and nurtured too.

I use one of these two after the #NipFab depending on time of day, so daytime I opt for the #Ren Evercalm Day cream, a thicker creamy moisturizer, feels spa like and with essential oils.

Then in the evening #Inkey Hyaluronic Acid Serum for that super hydrating feel that can sit on the skin all night. This is my favourite of all time!!

A while back I would this cream on a competition held by a fellow beauty blogger. And this balm is an absolute lifesaver. I’ve used on my husband’s burnt fingers and I’m currently using on my scar! It’s thick like vaseline, it creates a protective barrier that’s waterproof, while healing the scar too. It’s a dream.

For lips and dry patches on heels, and it’s lovely. Usually lip balms for me make you use them continuously after the first go. But this one, you can use once, and your lips don’t go super dry afterwards. It’s solid version of #Palmers Cocoa Butter.

For my legs, the compression stockings cause such reptile skin, constantly dry and flaky skin. I use #Ameliorate Exfoliating Cream, I once got it in a subscription box, and then because I loved it so, my husband bought me a larger one for my birthday in July. I’ve deliberately saved it until now to use. And it’s perfect for this post surgery recovery. A touch of pampering when you feel so dull and drained.

Style Awards #LatestInBeauty Box

As soon as I saw it I knew I had to buy it, you got to choose 6 products from 60 items chosen. And boy oh boy there are some cracking products to choose as well.

As I was sharing the box with my youngest daughter her blog is here we both chose 3 items each. And all for £25.00 plus postage + packaging. Bargain!!

Choosing was hard I’ll be honest, and I was sad I’d missed the Charlotte Tilbury items. But not to worry too much we did bag ourselves a #Mac lipstick #cloudsinmycoffee

Obviously we both like this, but it’s predominantly my daughter’s top pick. RRP 18.00

I however chose this as my top pick and it’s #DrSebagh serum repair and after two uses I love it, but it’s RRP is £69.00 so no matter how much I love it, I can’t be spending that on it.

Next for my daughter was another joint love product, The Body Shops Matcha Tea Mask RRP £17.00

I hope she will let me try it soon!!

For me my next one was boring but necessary to try. As my leg skin is rough, Extremely dry and could do with love after its many many surgeries. So I chose #Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion RRP £26.00

My daughter loves Tanning, so her last item was perfect for her to try #Sienna 1hr tanning mousse RRP £25.00

My last item is a new found love of mine, a cleansing balm. I’ve tried a few now, such as #BeautyKitchen and #EmmaHardie and this one is #Evelom and for this size it’s RRP at £20.00 but you usually buy it twice this size and at £42.00. another item I won’t be buying as the price bracket is too high for a daily use product.

All in all we got around £175.00 worth of products, so it was too good to miss. You can still find some good products left here. I’m totally impressed, and though they won’t be repurchase products as they are too expensive for me personally, I think others will really love them. It’s a perfect way to try out brands and products you thought were beyond your means and budget.
