#BEAUTY | Banish dry skin and lips with natural products - CRUELTY FREE

Who would have thought having soft hands and skin was a luxury, dry hands are a lot more common than originally thought. I mean being a women who does everything herself, DIY, washing, cleaning ,more washing, painting, washing with chemicals, dying hair....you get the drift. All that adulting takes their toll on our hands, so its important we look after them. All products are natural and cruelty free!

 Here are some goodies I got sent from Avernaco, there are 2 hand creams and a lip butter.


Hand and Skin Shield - Liquid Gloves

The packaging at first is quite striking. Not fancy or over done, a packaging that says "I do the job, I'm not just here to be pretty" a product I would instantly go for off the shelf to solve my dry skin problem. The fragrance is refreshing and earthy with hints of aloe vera & jojoba, after putting on a little dab of cream my hands were instantly soft ...no kidding, its like a liquid glove. I cant help but rub my fingers over each other to keep the softness alive. It doesn't transfer any oils or feel greasy to touch things straight after. I give this a 10/10!


Intensive Skin Therapy - 

The packaging on this one is a lot more fun and descriptive as in you see the photo of the ingredients , it is similar in feel to the other cream just a tad bit lightweight and absorbs in the skin very quickly. The fragrance is a bit more sweeter and fruitier and you can really smell the paw paw. It feels soft but with has a slightly more tacky feel. My score is 8/10, on fragrance preference .


Paw Paw Lip Butter

This was probably my favourite of the 3! It is super hydrating, and lasts really well. I do love me some Vaseline, so I'm comparing it to that. The lip butter absorbs so much better and made my lips feel hydrated not just as if the product was sitting on my lips. It has a lovely sheen of a finish, which gives the 'make up no makeup look' effortless kind of stuff I always ship! The paw paw smell isn't as over powering with this due to the honey and vanilla. Honey is a big skincare love of mine, its a natural ingredient which is proven to help with skin issues. This is a 10/10!

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
