Rituals & Pixi Haul

Hi everyone,

I recently done a little bit of shopping in our new Rituals store in Manchester, as I'm really enjoying exploring the brand. Rituals is known for being luxurious and also affordable, which is something that is appealing to myself. I also just had to pick up a product from the Pixi Beauty range.

Pixi Rose Tonic
I have decided to purchase the Rose Tonic from Pixi to replace my evening when it runs out, as the one which I'm currently using I'm going through it really quickly; which is very unusual for me. This has a lovely rose fragrance, and I'm looking forward to seeing what this is like in my evening skincare routine.

Rituals 'The Ritual of Nameste' First Essence for Radiance
I've been wanting to add an essence into my skincare routine for a while, but I've never quite 'bitten the bullet', as they can be quite pricey depending on which brand you choose to purchase from. I decided to go for the Rituals one as its not as expensive as some of the other essences I've come across. This went straight into my evening skincare routine, and I'm enjoying using so far.

Rituals 'The Ritual of Nameste' Cleansing Balm
Because I'm interested in exploring the Rituals skincare line I have decided to pick up the cleansing balm to see how it compares to the cleansing oil I purchased last month, and to see which one I prefer as part of my evening skincare routine. Also the cleansing balm comes with a flannel, which I didn't realise at the time of buying.

Rituals 'The Ritual of Karma' Candle
The 'Ritual of Karma' is one of favourite ranges that Rituals offer, so I have decided to purchase a candle of that scent. The scent is holy lotus and white tea, and their candles are made using sunflower oil. I'm really looking forward to burning this candle as I think it will be quite relaxing.

Rituals 'The Ritual of Hammam' Body Scrub (GWP)
Because I spent over so much, as was allowed to choose a body scrub of my choice as a free gift. I decided to with the body scrub from the 'Ritual of Hammam' range as its ginger and eucalyptus; which sounds delicious. 

I'm really looking to using all of the products that I have purchased this month, and seeing if they will suit my skincare needs.

Review: Boots No.7 Radiant Results Revitalising Toner

Hi everyone,

I have been using the Boots No.7 Radiant Results Revitalising Toner as part of my evening skincare routine for a good few months, and I would like to share my thoughts on this product with you.

- Radiant and healthier looking energised skin
- Tri-Vit complex that contains Vitamins C, E and B5 and also Red Ginseng

A multi tasking toning water to help prepare the skin after cleansing. Helps to reduce the appearance of pores, for a clear and more even looking complexion. Leaves skin looking renewed, and feeling toned, soft and revitalised.

Each No.7 toning water is formulated to help protect your skin's natural, healthy balance.

I'm really enjoying using this toning water from No.7 as it leaves my skin feeling soft and more hydrated than the previous toner that I was using. I have oily/combination skin and it gets rid of all of excess oil that my skin produces really well, while also leaving it feeling soft. Also, with the toner being from the No.7 brand it also makes it ideal if your on a budget for your skincare routine.

Bath & Body Haul 2019

Hi everyone,

I have recently had a little stock up of bath and body products, as I was currently running low on a few items.

Dove Invigorating Ritual Body Lotion
I've always fancied trying the body lotions from Dove, especially from the newish Invigorating Rituals range. The body lotion that is formulated with avocado smells divine, also you seem to get quite a lot of product despite the budget price tag; so its going to last me a good while once I start using it.

Soap & Glory Bubble in Paradise Body Wash
This is the latest range that has been released by Soap & Glory, and the 'Bubble in Paradise' body wash smells amazingly fruity; especially the mango scent which is something that I'm not usually a fan of in body wash.

Faith in Nature Watermelon Body Wash
I've always fancied trying the body wash range from 'Faith in Nature', but I could never find a scent that I appealed to me until I stumbled across the Watermelon scent in TK Maxx. This Watermelon scent is more of a natural watermelon scent, rather than the sweet shop variety.

Rituals 'The Ritual of Karma' Shower Oil
The 'Ritual of Karma' range from Rituals is one of favourite ranges that Rituals offer, as it has a floral freshness that I really like. I can't use the shower foams as I'm allergic to an ingredient that is in them, but they do offer a shower oil. The shower oil has a really nice lather and it foams up beautifully. It's also offers a little moisture to the skin. 

Body Shop Shower Gels in Cactus Blossom, Wild Argan Oil & Olive
I love the shower gels from the Body Shop, and I have been using them for years. I have decided to repurchase the scents Cactus Blossom and Wild Argan Oil, as Wild Argan Oil is one of favourite scents that the Body Shop offers, and Cactus Blossom is the Limited Edition scent for the summer that I really like. The Olive shower gel is completely new to me, but it has a lovely floral freshness too it that I really like.

Neal's Yard Aromatic Shower Gel
I've had Neal's Yard products in the past, but they were more skincare based. The Aromatic shower has a lovely, relaxing lavender fragrance that I'm really looking forward to using; it was also the range that appealed to me the most.

Neal's Yard Soothing Aromatic Collection
The Neal's Yard Soothing Aromatic collection has a travel size body butter and foaming bath in the Aromatic fragrance. I was tempted to buy a full size body butter, until I saw this little gift set. I'm looking forward to using the Aromatic range from Neal's Yard.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash & Body Lotion
The Sugar Crush range from Soap & Glory is one of favourite ranges, as I really love the fresh citrus fragrance that this range has. I haven't used this range from Soap & Glory in years, but it still smells as delightful as when I had first used it. I have decided to repurchase the body wash, as I really enjoyed it using it all those years ago. But I also decided to pick up the body lotion from this range, as I fancied using something a little lighter to moisturise my skin after I have had a shower. The body lotion contains AHAs, which I didn't realise until after I had picked it up.

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
This is another product from the Sugar Crush range from Soap & Glory that I really enjoyed using all those years ago. The Sugar Crush body buttercream has a lovely thick consistency that sinks into the skin straight away. It's also hydrating to the skin, plus the scent also lingers on the skin for quite a while once it has been applied.

Safe to say that I'm now stocked up on body butters, body lotions and shower gels for the next six months or so. I went just a little bit bonkers without even realising that I had a purchased so many of each item.

Erin Condren Haul

Hi everyone,

I have recently placed another with Erin Condren, as I'm really loving the new Kaleidoscope design. The paper quality that Erin Condren uses is also fantastic as its really thick.

Kaleidoscope Petit Journal

I decided to purchase two of the lined Kaleidoscope petit journals, as I thought they would be brilliant to throw in my handbag. The petit journals are around the size of an A5 notepad. They also have the same paper quality as the Erin Condren Life Planners and Deluxe Monthly Planners.

Kaleidoscope Pen

I decided to get the pen in the colourful Kaleidoscope design, as its another item from the Kaleidoscope collection. The pen is quite weighty, and it comes with black ink and it is refillable.

'Painted Petals' Snap In Metallic Book Marks

I had know idea that you could get the snap in bookmarks in the 'Painted Petals' design. I really like the colour way of these book marks, and I don't think that you can have too many of these.

Kaleidoscope Sticker Sheet

I've got the Kaleidoscope sticker sheet as I have an idea on how to use it in my Deluxe Monthly. The only let down when this arrived was that it wasn't really protected, so it came a little crinkled at one end.

Metallic 'Starry Night' Notebook in Rose Gold/ Gold

I have decided get another notebook from Erin Condren, as I was really impressed with the last one. I chose to get with the 'Starry Night' metallic cover in the rose gold/ gold colour way. I also had no idea that got a sheet of stickers in the back of the notebooks.

Kaleidoscope Sticky Notes

I also decided to get another pack of the Kaleidoscope sticky notes, as I don't think you can have too many sticky notes especially if your using them to pre plan. I wasn't expecting the paper quality to be as thick as they are.

I have really enjoyed shopping with Erin Condren over the past couple of months, and I am beyond thrilled with everything that I have got from them; apart from the sticker sheet arriving a bit circled at one end.
