SKINCARE | REN'S Ready Steady Glow Tonic

Since I ran out of my current moisturiser I thought I might as well give another product a go. I have been wanting to try REN's latest product for a while so it was the right time to start using just this in a one step simple skincare routine. I wanted to use it on its own to actually see what kind of results I got and if it really does make my skin glow.


The first thing that hit me was the refreshing citrus smell, I thought I would test it on my hand first off just to see if I would be sensitive to it and to my surprise the cotton pad was really quite filthy aha but it left my hand super soft.
I took the plunge to try it on my face and again....filthy cotton pad but super soft skin. It leaves the skin sort of tacky which gives it that glow, to me its a similar glow as to when you put oil on your face but less oily obviously :)

I let it air dry which only takes a few moments then I either put my makeup on, or leave as is. I use it every morning as it is a great way to wake you up and make you feel ready as well as giving an effortless glow, its so gentle on the skin. I did start using it before bed also, not religiously but I think it helps with tightening the skin and making pores less noticeable. Now that I have been using it I cant not imagine using it or to think what else I would replace it with.

Its suppose to encourage natural cell renewal and gently exfoliate the skin, forming a new layer of skin without being harsh in any way shape or form. I actually prefer using this to using a exfoliator with beads in, as not only is it more comfortable but it means I can do it daily and with only a few swipes! so for all us busy ladies it takes no time at all ;)
( make sure you are using some sunscreen as it makes your skin more sensitive to the sun)


If you haven't tried this I would say go try it, if its a bit pricey for you (£25) then I would maybe suggest pixi's glow tonic (£10-£18) which I believe is similar and another REN product which works well with this is the perfect canvas of which I have reviewed here 
let me know if you try it!

#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
