Boots & Superdrug Haul

Hi everyone,

I have recently been doing a little bit of shopping, as I've been on the hunt for a decent cleansing shampoo as the one that I really liked has now been discontinued.

Soap & Glory 'The Way She Smoothes' Body Lotion
I love the fragrance of the new range from Soap and Glory, as I has a gorgeous fresh fruity scent to it. I decided to get it the body lotion, as come the Spring months I don't think I'm going to have enough to last me through the season. I'm really looking forward to using this body lotion.

Soap & Glory 'No Woman, No Dry' Body Butter
I've also got the matching scent from the latest range, but also in a body butter; as I'm currently flying though the body butters that I currently own.

Soap & Glory Heel Genius
I have decided to purchase the 'Heel Genius' foot cream, as I've heard nothing but good reviews about it.

Superdrug Senstive Deodorants
I was in a pinch at the time, and I've never tried Superdrug's own branded deodorants. I decided to get the scents 'Bergamont, Freesia & Mimosa', and 'Peach, Violet & Rose', as these seemed like the nicest scents.

Nivea Urban Fresh Avocado & Lemongrass Deodorant
I've used deodorants from Nivea in the past, and I've really liked using them. The Urban Fresh is a new range from Nivea, so I thought that I would give it a go.

Herbal Essences White Strawberry & Sweet Mint Shampoo
This is where the hunt to find my replacement cleansing shampoo starts in this post, and this was the first that I noticed that I thought would be a good alternative. I've had good luck with Herbal Essences in the past, so I thought I would give this one a try.

Vichy Purete Thermale Toner
I'm currently using the matching cleanser from this range from Vichy, but I'ver never used the toner. I got this as I'm currently using my last toner in my morning skincare routine, and I was looking for something just a little more refreshing and hydrating for my skin.

Charles Worthing Grow Strong & Healthy Balance Shampoo's
I've never used anything from Charles Worthington before. I decided to get the Grow Strong shampoo to replace my L'Oreal Dream Lengths shampoo when that runs out; and the Healthy Balance is another option for me to try another clarifying shampoo.

Charles Worthington Everyday Gentle Weightless Conditioner
I decided to get the Everyday Gentle weightless conditioner, as it seems like a conditioner that my hair would like as its quite fine, but I have loads of it.

Maui Moisture Hibiscus Water Shampoo & Conditioner
I have been intrigued by the Maui haircare range ever since it launched, but I could never find anything that would fit my hair needs until now. The hibiscus water range is lightweight, but it also provides hydration for the hair; and it smells heavenly.

Review: Boots No.7 Hydra Luminous Water Concentrate

Hi everyone,

I have just recently started to use the No.7 Hydra Luminous Water Concentrate from Boots  as part of my morning skincare routine.

- Powered by pure hyaluronic acid and No.7 Hydra Drench Complexion, for an instant + skin hydration boost
- The fresh, water light texture instantly drenches the skin with liquid hydration, leaving skin feeling smooth and silky soft
- Supercharged hydration + Pollution Shield Technology for skin that looks visibly fresh and glowing

I'm really enjoying having the Water Concentrate as part of my morning skincare routine, as its fast absorbing into the skin while leaving behind no residue or sticky feeling. I've also found that you only need to use a drop of this as a little bit does the entire face. My current moisturiser and eye cream also layer beautifully over the top.

I really enjoy using products that contain hyaluronic acid in my skincare routine, as my loves the boost of hydration that is gives as well as leaving me with a more glowy complexion.

If your looking to introduce hyaluronic acid into your skincare, but you are on a budget this isn't a bad option to go for. It does what it says on the bottle, and it sinks into the skin straight away due to its light consistency.

Hi everyone,

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to 2020. 

I'm just letting you know that my blog will be back up and running on the 21st January 2020, with a post going live at 9am GMT

I've also ran into some teething trouble with some of photography. I'm just letting you know that I am trying to find a solution to this, but I'm not too sure how long it will take. Please be assured that I am working on it, and please bare with me on this as the problem  that I have run into is completely new too me.

Lots of Love

Lauren xx
