Hi all,

Over the last couple of months I’ve had a little Body Shop binge due to their incredible offers (40% on top of the sale!). My order arrived yesterday and I feel that it’s only right for me to share with you some reviews of the products I’ve bought.  The first product I will review is:

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Review: Youth Concentrate review

Hey guys,

Hope you’re all doing well. I’ve been away in York for a week with my boyfriend so I haven’t had the time to blog a lot. However, I have just been interviewed by Abigail Rose and you can check the interview out by clicking here:Interview.

Today I would like to share my review of the product drops of youth by body shop. This product targets the first signs of ageing and delivers hydration to skin.

Yes I know this product is initially for anti-aging and I am young but the sales assistant assured me that due to the stem cell technology it had hydrating powers. Since I have dry skin I thought I’d give it a try. I’ve been trying this product for about a week now so I am ready to review.

My summer essentials

 

Shimmer waves  Bronzer

I got this when it was on sale and it is fantastic, especially in the summer as it makes you looked tanned and sparkly. I not only use it on my cheeks to highlight and entire face for a nice shimmery bronzing effect.  As it’s powdery it is not heavy on your skin, which is perfect for the summer when you sweat as it doesn’t come off easily.

A fridge

I know some of you will laugh at this but I honestly think that a fridge is essential for the summer as if you put your make up in it, it will feel so much better to put on your face. Plus it preserves your make up longer especially in the summer heat.

SPF moisturiser

You don’t need me to tell you how important protecting your skin against the sun and environmental damage is – and it’s something we should all be incorporating into our skincare regardless of where we are.  So why not use a moisturer which will not only hydrate your skin in the summer heat but also protect your skin.  Nivea – Daily Essentials Rich Day hydrating cream SPF 15 is my current go-to product because it deeply hydrates my skin and protects it at the same time.

Body butters

During the summer months my skin gets quite dry and one way to avoid this is to use body butter. My favourite one is the peach body butter from the body shop that smells so delicious and hydrates skin well. For extreme hydration I recommend the coconut body butter.

Sunglasses

I purchased these cute shades from a New look. They were only £10 and they’re so cute! Summer is sunny and bright; I can’t go anywhere without sunglasses here- so I’d say they’re essentials for me. Make sure to check the ray protection before buying.

A good body spray

I love perfume but I feel that in the summer that this can be a bit too heavy on my skin. Instead I love to use a good body spray that makes me smell delicious and freshens me up in the summer heat. My current favourite is Passion fruit flower body spray by the French brand- Adopt By Réserve Naturelle. It was given to me as a gift by my friend in Paris so I am not sure if you can get it worldwide.

Lots of love,

Temporary hair dying the easy way- and Body shop review

 

Are you looking for a temporary hair dye that washes off easily?  Look no further than to hair chalks!

I know that this may initially sound slightly weird since hair and chalks are words that are not usually seen together, but you must trust me on this one.

However, I must note a few tips before you begin colouring your hair:

TOP TIPS:

  1. DO NOT use any old chalk.  You must purchase HAIR chalk. You can purchase these on amazon and if you add not sure of the one colour that you prefer I would recommend that you buy a multi coloured pack.
  2. It’s gunna get messy, thus either use gloves to keep your hands clean and definitely don’t wear your favourite top as it will get ruined (you can put a towel around your shoulders).  Don’t worry too much though as the hair chalks wash out pretty easily

 

Review of body shop hair chalks

Product rating: 3/5

I love hair chalks and when I saw the body shop were selling some I got super excited. I picked a pink hair chalk and was eager to see how it worked. Currently body shop only provides two colours which are pink and blue and cost £5 each. As I am blonde I choose the pink colour as it shows up better on light hair. If you have darker hair I would recommend that you use the blue one.

My first impressions of the product were positive as I found it pretty easy to use as you only need to glide the product onto hair streaks. The colour also stayed for about 2 days and it was easily washed out with shampoo so if you’re not happy with what you see then there are no permanent mistakes.

However, the negative side to this product is that you only get to choose one colour for your hair and I definitely think that having a good choice of colours is essential when experimenting to be able to see which colour suits you the best. Also, the chalk was finished after about two uses which sucks when you pay 5 pounds for the product!

Here’s a picture of me using the hair chalks:
