REVIEW | LUSH Each peach ( and two's a pair) Massage Bar

 Each Peach (and twos a pair) Massage Bar - LUSH  - £5.50 *

'With this massage bar, we have combined cocoa butter, shea butter, avocado butter and mango kernal butter. Which means this is not just very emollient and moisturising for the skin, but will give a good slip when it is being worked over the body.' - Lush Cosmetics 

I used this massage bar in the bath the other day and It left my skin feeling very moisturised. The Lime oil, orange oil and mandarin oil that is in this bar leaves your skin smelling gorgeous ! 

The cocoa butter and shea butter leave your skin feeling full of moisture and very soft and the oils within the bar make the bar melt into your skin and allow you to massage the oils into your skin. 

I did feel a bit greasy after my bath and had to shower off the oils afterwards but I felt very relaxed in my bath and the oils smelt amazing, it was definitely very therapeutic! 

Have you tried any of the Lush massage bars ?

REVIEW | Nuxe Paris Gelee Exfoliante Douce

Nuxe Paris Gelee Exfoliante Douce - £16*

This is a gentle exfoliating gel by Nuxe. You apply it to dry skin and then rinse with warm water. Using once or twice a week to exfoliate the dead skin cells away. I use a cream cleanser first or a Micellar solution to remove my make up and then dry my face and follow with this to remove the dirt that you just cleansed from your skin.

     'This Gentle Exfoliating Gel exfoliates, eliminates dead cells and refines the skin texture with its     combination of 100% botanical exfoliants (Extracts of Lychee Seed, Nutshell Powder). Complexion is clarified and purified (Rosemary Water). Skin is soothed and softened (Damascena Rose Petal Floral Water, Allantoin).'  - Nuxe

I really like this exfoliator, its really gentle and is even suitable for sensitive skin and for frequent use. The beads work into the skin making it feel really clean. I always think my skin feels cleaner after using something like an exfoliator for a deeper clean. 

I'm loving this product, it definitely makes my skin feel cleaner, brighter and smoother. 

Have you used any products from Nuxe?  Im loving this and would love you to recommend some products ..

Summer Wishlist

 White Camisole - french connection
Bag - french connection
Shorts- Topshop 
Sandals - Office 

I'm loving these little camisoles at the moment, I think they go with everything and make an outfit look so cute and yet so simple. This one from French Connection is also available in lavender and navy. 
I love these shorts and think they would be perfect on my holiday and I love this bag from French Connection, I think it's so unique and would go with any outfit ! 

Have you seen any of these cute camisoles ? 

My latest charity shop find

 Urban Decay Naked Palette RRP- £36 

I picked this up in my local charity shop for £8 thats right ! Thats a massive saving of £28 !

I'm not going to go on and on because I will be reviewing the palette in more depth when I have used it more. The palette contains 12 amazing neutrals! Its the perfect kit to create bronze looks and smokey eyes. I love it already!

Like I said I got this in my local charity shop- It was unused and in the original packaging and still had the Debenhams label on it. The only thing wrong with it was the Karma brush was missing but I probably would have used it anyway.

I love going into charity shops and would really recommend having a look next time your out and about because theres bargains to be found and your doing your little bit for charity at the same time!

The Neon Cami

II've spotted so many bloggers wearing this neon yellow cami from River Island and I wanted it so bad! Unfortunately online and in my local stores its sold out :( 
Now topshop and new look have their own versions. I like the topshop one its very see - through and £18 is so expensive even with student discount its £16.20 but this new look one is abit less greeny but it's still neon- the website doesn't do it any justice! Its definitely a good alternative. its a nice cami, it's not too see through and for £9.99 its a bargain!  

Primark Holiday Buys !

 Bikini top £6 Bottoms £4
 Flip Flops - £1.50 
 Shorts - £4 

 Sandals - £12

Bikini - The Bikini is such a lovely pattern and quality and for £10 I think it looks alot more expensive than primark. I think with a bit of a tan it's going to look so nice! I love that primark do some bigger sizes in their bikinis now. This is the only new bikini i've bought this year and I love it and will be getting loads of wear out of it!

The flip flops - I wanted some plain flip flops for my holiday! I already have a floral cath kidston pair so wanted some that were more versatile. The plain white ones were £1 but these were £1.50 and I think the flower makes them look really nice and more expensive and will make an outfit look more summery and nice.

Shorts- The shorts are gorgeous at £4 I should have bought more but i'm trying not to buy too much. I mentioned some of these shorts in my wishlist the other day they are a lovely silky material and great quality. They would look nice day or night and I would even consider wearing them with tights and a jumper!

Sandals - These are the latest blogger must have! These sandals are an absolute bargain at £12 they are an amazing quality very nice material and they are really comfy! llymlrs has them already and has been wearing them on her holiday ! I know I will be wearing these ALOT on my holiday!
