#BEAUTY | Skincare haul with Chemist.co.uk

My continued love for all things skincare has lovingly been fulfilled by chemist.co.uk, I have teamed up with them to bring you some products that I have used before and recommend and some others I haven't and are pleasantly surprised by.

I hadn't shopped at chemist.co.uk before, so my guess was they sold the kind of items you would find in a chemist. On the website there are various medicines you can buy and also skincare and toiletry items that you would usually find in a chemist but for a fraction of the price.
I never normally shop in actual chemists for skincare items as they tend to be a lot more dearer than say Superdrug or a superstore but this online chemist is similar to the Superdrug prices.

I guess I'm going to talk you through the bits I got now :)

Derma V10 body butter (coconut)
I don't usually tend to reach for body butters as I sometimes find them a little bit greasy, but it  was only right that I gave this one a try. I used it a couple of times and focused it on my legs and arms rather than anywhere else on my body. I liked it on my legs as it is very thick and creamy and makes you feel very nourished. I'm not about having thick creams all  over my body though, so using it in moderation is fine for me :) the smell gives me holiday beach vibes!


Neutrogena Visual Clear Treatment gel
Luckily for me I had some spots on my face so I could try this out haha not really luck but hey ho ^_^ I am a bit sceptical of spot treatments as I'm rather old fashioned about them, I either leave them to it or dab on a bit of toothpaste. I don't like to put a load of different chemicals on my skin when it has broken out, but saying that I am glad I tried this product out as I think it is actually works. It turns into a gel (pretty self explanatory from the name aha) and kind of acts as a barrier for the spot. Of course it didn't make my spots disappear but they did look less visible and not so prominent . Perfect if you are on your way to an important event and you break out!


MUDD original mask deep cleansing clay formula
As a mask lover I was not so fanatic about this one, its a clay formula. Clay formulas are such a pain to wash off. Or maybe I'm just so lazy, I like to put my mask and then be able to peel it off. I find if I scrub myself after a clay mask it makes my skin sore and red from the pressure of the scrubbing. I didn't feel this mask personally made my skin any different :( the good  thing was it was easy to apply! Also the way a mask works depends on the skin type that you are.


The last 2 items I got was the blueberry lip balm by Nivea and a Melrose stick. The lip balm I love, its super hydrating on the lips and has a tint of pink/lilac shade, it also smells delicious! The Melrose stick is as equally as good for dry areas of my skin, and so easy to apply as it is a stick form!

 

I'm so glad I have come across this site to be fair, not only does it stock a large variety of items but the price is also super low on items that are high in price in the actual brick and mortar chemists!

#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
