When getting a tattoo, it isn’t something you do and then forget about. It is important you take care of it during the healing process and then for as long as you have it. When exposing your skin to the sun, you should always wear sun cream and it just as important, if not more, that you protect your tattoos.

Eco cosmetics have created a sun cream specifically for this. It is important you use a high factor to prevent your tattoos fading. I only have three small tattoos (one on my finger and one on each of my feet) but I want them to look dark and sharp for as long as they can. We all know they fade over time but if you can help prolong them by taking care in the sun then why wouldn’t you? I have also had my eyebrows micro bladed so it is important I protect these from premature fading by using a good sun cream.

This sun cream is 100% natural which is a big plus for me as I suffer heat rash/sun allergy/sun cream reactions. I have the worst rash when exposed to high heats so I am very fussy about what sun creams and products I use on my skin whilst on holiday or in the hot summer heat in the UK.

I used this sun cream a couple of times over the last month when we were having hot spells and I wanted to sit in the garden. It doesn’t have the usual sun cream smell, it applies easy and is kind to your skin whilst protecting it from the sun. What more could you want?!

Do you put sun protection on your tattoos?

I got my hands on a couple of products from Nia and wanted to share my thoughts with you. I hadn’t heard of this brand before but spotted them on Amazon. They two products I have been trying are:

Wash & Glow

This is a cleansing foam that will remove all signs of make up and impurities from your face. You only need 1 or 2 pumps and can use it once or twice a day, however often you wish. I have been using it in the evenings to remove the days make up/dirt. What I like most about it is that it doesn’t leave your face feeling tight as most face washes seem to. You feel really clean but without that tightness. I have been getting on really well using this.

Fake Awake

This eye gel is great to use if you have tired eyes. It soothes the area around your eyes and can be used at night if you have had a long day or in the morning to brighten your eyes. It feels quite cooling and soothing as you apply it and you feel a little more awake. It is great if you have a late night and wake up with tired eyes as it can de-puff the area and brighten underneath your eyes.

Have you heard of this brand?

I recently got a pair or new trousers to wear in the nice weather from Hippie pants. You can also wear them as a jumpsuit which I think is great!

I love how comfortable they are and the great thing is that they are stretchy and they are one size so will fit most people. They also do a plus size version which I think is great so they cater to a more variety of sizes.

The standard ones:

Size: One size fits most

Waist: 24 to 41 inches (61 to 106 cm)

Length: 41 inches (104 cm)
Plus size:
Size: One size fits all
Waist: 41 to 56 inches (104 to 142 cm)
Length: 40 inches (102 cm)

The ones I got can be found here. I really love the colours and the pattern. They are such good quality and really cooling to wear.

Would you ever wear something like this that can be worn in different ways? Reminds me a bit of those tube scarfs you can wear about ten different ways!

I love subscription boxes, for beauty products or for food. The best ones are where you don’t have to commit to 12 months and where you know you are going to get things that you will love.

The Vegan Kind already offer a food/lifestyle box but now they have recently introduced a beauty box.

In the last few months you will know I have adapted to a vegan diet and I am also trying to introduce more vegan/cruelty free make up and beauty products into my life. A box like this was ideal for me to try.

The beauty box is a mix of skincare, cosmetics and beauty products delivered every two months and it is from £12.75 per box plus £3.15 UK p&p. If you join their newsletter you can get £5 off this (a pop up box will appear on their website offering you this!)

The August box contained:

Miss Patisserie Watermelon Bath Slab (RRP £5.50)

Sukin Paw Paw Ointment 25ml (RRP £6.99)

Harpers Candles Sweet Pea Soy Wax Candle (RRP £5.00)

Rawganic The Pure Hydrating 3-in-1 Facial Wipe (RRP £3.00)

GlitterEyes Goddess Glow ‘GlowUp’ Highlighter (RRP £7.99)

BONUS ITEM: Utan and Tone Tan Gummies (RRP £18.00)

My favourite product in this box has to be the bath slab as I love bath products (massive Lush fan!). I love the colours of it and you don’t need much to create an amazing bath. It fizzes like a bath bomb and creates magical unicorn mermaid water 😉 Plus it smells delicious.

I haven’t burnt the candle yet but I took the lid off and had it next to the bed as it smells so good!

I have used a paw paw before, I like to use this kind of thing on my lips as well as a multi purpose balm to use on my hair and nails when on the go.It is great to tame fly aways and also good to use on your hands/cuticles.

The pressed pigment is super cute as you get the holder and you add it in to the holder yourself. It looks like a great colour and I look forward to trying it.

I am loving the wipes as I quite often like to use one in the evening to refresh my face if I haven’t been wearing make up and don’t want to do my full cleanse/tone regime. They are really delicate on your face too.

I must admit, I am intrigued by the tan gummies and not too sure what to expect from them?!

You can read more about this specific box here. I really love discovering new things!

I am so in love with my new bath oil from Olverum. You only need to add half a capful to your bath and it makes it smell so good and leaves you really soft. The oil is absorbed by your skin as you bathe and it leaves your skin feeling great.
This oil was the winner of the Tatler Beauty Awards 2018 – Best Bath Oil and I can see why.
The oil has been carefully created to help you have a relaxing bath and to ease stress, whilst being kind to your skin. The fact it has lavender in it drew me to it initially as I love anything lavender.
You can buy it in various sizes direct from their website:
The 125ml size is £32.00 and will be enough for 25 baths, the 250ml size is £58 and enough for 50 baths. The travel set is £22 and enough for 9 baths.
The oil is also vegan 🙂
