There are so many types of face masks on the market right now. I have previously tried the black mask by shills, you can read my full review here. Shills have just launched this snail essence mask too so I decided to give this a go.
You simply cleanse and tone as normal, then apply this sheet mask for 15-20 minutes and let it work its magic.
“SHILLS DR Snail Repair Total Effects Silky Nourishing Toner uses the latest in innovation – snail liquid, (Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates) known for its outstanding capabilities for regenerating from the inside out; skin looks smoother, clearer and youthful.
Perfect for a complexion boost before a party or to repair skin after dehydration. Popular sheet mask allows the formula to penetrate the skin. Snail Essence and Cucumber Extract enhances skin’s natural metabolism for skin renewal for healthy-looking skin.
Snail secretion increases the skin’s ability to take in and hold moisture and slows down cellular ageing; drastically improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. ” – justbeauty.co.uk
This product may not be for everyone due to the ingredients but I did notice a difference and my face was left soft and glowing.
One of my favourite scents so far that I have tried from Crabtree & Evelyn has got to be Rosewater & Pink Peppercorn.
Crabtree and Evelyn have always been my go to company for handcare. The whole range can be found here but I have been trying:
Hydrating hand therapy which comes in 25ml and 100ml
Hydrating hand recovery
I love that you can buy the hand cream in multiple sizes as the small one is handy for on the go and the larger one can be kept at home 🙂
The fragrance is described by the brand as Rose petal notes heightened with the sweet spice heat of Pink Peppercorn and Akigalawood, captured from Patchouli.
The soap is great as it leaves your hands not only clean, but smelling great. It is also very moisturising. Often soaps can dry out your hands but the shea butter hydrates your hands leaving them soft and clean.
The hand creams (hand therapy) are very moisture rich but are a non greasy formula and you can really feel them working on your hands.
The hand recovery is not something I had tried or heard of before. It is a gentle exfoliating wash to help remove any dead skin and dirt, prepping your hands for the hand therapy.
Using all of these together leaves your hands feeling amazing and smelling so good 🙂
Finding a body scrub you like can be hard. They can be too gritty, not gritty enough, too runny, too thick. Everyone has there personal preference as to what the “perfect” body scrub is. I have been trying a lot lately and this one is my new favourite.
Malee products are inspired by the rich landscapes, alluring scents and ancient wisdom of Africa, our luxurious fragrance and body care range balances 100% natural active ingredients and scientifically proven formulas to heal, protect and pamper your skin. – credit maleeonline.com
This conditioning body scrub is a salt and sugar scrub enriched with nourishing sunflower, avocado and sweet almond oils. It smells AMAZING and you can really feel it working.
After using it your skin feels renewed and soft. Not only is it removing dead skin cells but it is also moisturising at the same time.
It is £36 for 250ml which may sound a lot but it is so luxurious and is worth every penny!
I was very excited to try these shower gel and foam baths as they are all natural and so kind to your skin 🙂
I have quite sensitive skin so it is always nice to try natural products, especially in the bath. The scents are very subtle for the shower gel/foam bath which I think is great as sometimes when you are in the bath certain products can be far too over powering. The great thing about these particular bottles is that they can be used as a bubble bath or a body wash (or as both together!).
The shower gel/foam bath retails for £5/£6, so great value for money. The complete range can be found here.
These are quite big bottles at 400ml but you can also buy a massive 5L version if you fall in love with any of them.
I tried to following:
Aloe vera & ylang ylang
Grapefruit & orange
Seaweed & citrus
All of them are vegan which is great as I know I have a few vegan readers that often ask me if certain products I try are or aren’t.
I am obsessed with bath bombs. I usually stock up in the Boxing day sale at Lush, I had never even thought about making my own until I saw this kit from The Soap Kitchen.
I was so excited when this arrived and I couldn’t wait to give it a go!
Each kit contains enough base ingredients to make approximately 6 large bath bombs using the moulds supplied.
The Floral kit includes:
600g Sodium Bicarbonate
200g Citric Acid Granular (European)
2g UM Violet powder pigment
2g UM Pink powder pigment
