Festival Outfit Must-Haves

Festival Outfit Must-Haves

I am super envious of everyone heading off to Glastonbury this weekend. I wish I was going! With festivals on my mind I thought it would be a great idea to do a festival inspired outfit post showing my style essentials.

Marks & Spencer Summer Beauty Box Rodial Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Acid Tonic
With so many amazing items in the box, £10 seems like nothing! The main reason I love boxes like these are because you get decent sized samples that give you a real chance to try the products before committing to buying it full size. There are so many amazing skincare bits in here that I am so excited to try. One in particular that I am super happy to finally try out is the Rodial Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Acid Tonic. I feel like I have seen this on a few peoples blogs and it sounds amazing. I love facial mists that help with hydration, so I feel like this is a bit of a multi use product. 
Marks & Spencer Summer Beauty Box Philip Kingsley Citrus Swimcap
I am a huge fan of the Philip Kingsley Elasticiser, so when I saw this nifty little Sunshine Swimcap, I was intrigued. Said to protect your hair from sun damage and chlorine, I am saving this for my holiday as my hair gets so damaged from the heat and sun! It smells so citrusy so I know I am going to love leaving this in my hair.
Marks & Spencer Summer Beauty Box REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot
Another thing that I grabbed straight away was the REN Instant Firming Beauty Shot. After trying this out, it really reminded me of Nanoblur. It sort of smooths out any fine lines and leaves you face feeling a little tight - but in a nice way. Does that make any sense? I am really loving all my little samples of REN at the moment. Their skincare is great! 

What would be your favourite thing in the M&S Summer Beauty Box?

National Smile Month | Corsodyl Daily Toothpaste and Mouthwash

Corsodyl Daily Toothpaste and Mouthwash
As we come to the end of National Smile Month, I have a review of the Corsodyl Daily range* to share with you. After remembering the shocking but effective advert Corsodyl produced (remember the lady missing a tooth?), I wasn't quite sure if this range of dental care was for me. But the more I read about the range, the more I was willing to try it out.

Review | Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream with Deep Line Complex

Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream with Deep Line Complex
As I am only 22, I don't feel like I need to start worrying about deep lines (...yet). But looking after my skin is something I do think about and by starting a good skincare routine now, hopefully those deep lines can can hold off for a while longer.

I have recently introduced the Claudia Louch Botanical Face Cream with Deep Line Complex* into my night time routine. With its velvet soft texture and rich formula, it is the perfect combination to giving you a huge hydration hit. The best thing is that it soaks into your skin so quickly, so you don't have to worry about a greasy layer being left. This is something I have always found to be really good with Claudia Louch creams, making them great for people with combination skin that might be oily in areas but still need a moisture boost.

Containing a mix of aloe vera gel, jojoba, avocado oil, green tea, 4%African shea butter, vegetable glycerin and antioxidant vitamin E, this is a great face cream for those who might have sensitive skin because of its mildness. It is 94% natural, hypoallergenic, allergy-tested, non-comedogenic meaning that it won't block your pores.

I have been using this moisturiser for a while now and it is safe to say I am impressed. My skin feels so soft and even looks slightly more plump, giving it a healthy look. I have been using it alongside my Caudalíe Vinoperfect Radiance Serum and together they make the perfect skincare duo.

The only slightly negative comment I have to make about the moisturiser is about the scent. It has a bit of a old kind of smell to it. Like when a moisturiser is a little old. That is the only way I can think to describe it. The other Claudia Louch moisturisers I have tried have all smelled quite pleasant, so it was a shame this one isn't the same. BUT I do really like this moisturiser and the scent isn't so bad that it would put me off using it.

What is your favourite moisturiser at the moment?
