Archive, Arthritis, Health, Hips, Hypermobility, Hip replacement, SURGERY

While recovering from major surgeries it can be all too easy to let yourself go, in a way. As physio and pain management takes over every waking moment.

But I have some holey grails back in stock from aldi

First up is the highly loved by me Lacura Hot Cloth Cleanser. It’s a dupe for Liz Earle, I’ve tried both and they smell identical, even the feel is the same. Cloth is rougher in texture, but I don’t mind that. And at £3.99 it’s an absolute steal. My skin loves this cleanser. No wonder when it’s packed with cocoa butter, eucalyptus oil, extracts of chamomile, rosemary and white tea. It’s like a mini spa session.

Next is the Lacura Healthy Glow Tonic which I’ve not tried yet, not new to the wonderful properties of Glycolic acid, but I usually have this in an exfoliating pads either by Lacura (See below) or by Nip+ Fab. Said to brighten skin as well as improve skin texture with gentle exfoliating acid,leaving it smooth and soft. So I’m keen to see if this performs the same way, and is it better value than buying the 60pads. This also costs £3.99 and a good dupe for Pixi Glow Tonic.

My ultimate skin saviour has to be these Lacura Glycolic Daily Cleansing Pads exfoliate. These have been my lifesavers over the winter. A quick swipe with one of these at the end of the day, and I feel refreshed, clean and hydrates skin. Again they gently exfoliate and improve he skins appearance, making it feel smoother and brighter. These are a steal at £2.49 for 60pads.

My good friend popped into her Primark for me and picked up 2 Alex Steinherr sheet masks for me, and oh boy they are sheer heaven. The skin is positively radiant and so hydrated afterwards. I clearly need to find more of #AlexSteinherr products to try out.

The Supreme Sheet Mask was absolute heaven, pop this on, while your in a lovely bubble bath, and grab a drink (kraken rum for me) and relax!! Those muscles need it, and you deserve it!!

Look Fantastic Beauty Box #April

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

After cancelling #Glossybox as it was repeating too many times for me. I embarked on a 3 mths subscription of #LookFantastic as I’d seen #HollySurgeon blog about march’s box, you can visit it here

And I was blown away!! I too blogged about it, the quality and brands were outstanding. Now I obviously understand they can’t do that every month, so I knew this one would be more sparse.

However I was not disappointed at all. Exactly the opposite. I had an Elle magazine included that’s worth £4.40

Included in this box is #DrBotanicals Vegan Bergamot + Poppy Seed Exfoliating Bar that’s is 100g RRP £19.90 and honestly that is my box’s worth right here!! It smells divine, and I’m hoping it won’t be as messy as traditional scrubs.

#Nuxe Crémé Hydratante 48hr and for 15ml it’s £8.25 as it’s RRP £16.50 for 30ml I tried this out immediately and it’s absolutely amazing, soft, nourishing and delicately scented.

Super excited to spot a #Glamglow Supermud in here and yes it’s slightly disappointing that it’s only 15g but that’s still worth £12.60 as a 50g is RRP £42.00 saving this for a special pamper night.

Then the only make up product is a #Pur Super Charged Mascara which at 4ml the average price to buy seems to be around £6.00 and I actually need a new mascara so I’m keen to get trying it out.

#EmmaHardie Cleansing Balm 15ml I found this size on M&S site for £5.00. Recently I’ve really been loving these cleansing balms and I can’t afford Emma Hardie full sized, so it’s a lovely introduction to her products, and I must say it’s heavenly. So definitely saving for posher days.

Lastly but not least there’s #Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads, there’s only 10pads and that works out around £2.60 as it’s usually 60pads for £12.95. Again I used immediately and I loved that extra cleaned and toned face feeling. I’m definitely a convert, and I’ll have to see how to get them into my skincare routine.

The booklet gives you all the details of each product, and how to use them. Additionally they have articles on how to awaken your skincare routine, a guide to vitamins, a guide to Glamglow as a brand. And lastly some DIY masks you can make at home, and to Detox your make up brushes.

And right at the end, there’s a sneak peek of what’s to come next month and it’s #avant anti-ageing serum RTP £20 so that’s exciting!!
