Current Cleansing Heroes

You've probably noticed that I've been a bit absent from the blog recently, but what can I say? Sometimes life just gets in the way and things are just too busy. Anyway, I'm back now with a fresh mind and a long list of blog post ides for the upcoming weeks so I thought I'd get stuck right in and talk about a couple of cleansers I've been using constantly and loving.

The first is from super clean skincare brand Nude and it's their Perfect Cleansing Oil for Face and Eyes, this one is my first stop in the evenings, particularly if I've been wearing makeup. I just massage a couple of pumps into dry skin, it completely breaks down all makeup, including mascara. I then splash my face with water and the rich oil turns into a milk and rinses away, taking the makeup with it. It contains lots of natural, skin nourishing ingredients and my skin always feels healthier after using it. 

The second in my rotation is Aurelia's Miracle Cleanser, another cleanser packed full of great ingredients from an all clean and natural brand. This one contains lots of essential oils like camomile, rosemary and bergamot which, as well as doing great things for the skin, smell absolutely amazing. This one is my go to first thing in the morning as well as in the evening as a second cleanse after the nude one. I just scoop a bit out, massage it all over my face, inhale the lovely scent, then remove it with a flannel. 

The two work in combination with each other brilliantly well and my face feels baby soft after I use them. I'm already onto my second pot of Aurelia and the Nude cleansing oil will also definitely be repurchased when it runs out!

Lee Stafford My Big Fat Tong

I've never really been one for hair curlers, I've always preferred to just use my straighteners to create a relaxed, wavy look. That is, until I tried these, the 'My Big Fat Tong' by Lee Stafford. It's amazingly ease to use, heats up quickly and is great for creating more of a retro curl look. 

After blowdrying my hair I just divided it into sections and curled it around the barrel, I set the look with a bit of hairspray and the curls lasted a good few days! It's definitely a look I'll go back to again and again when I want to feel a bit dressed up!

Bedside Beauty

I always like to have a few beauty bits on my bedside table and as I thought it was looking rather pretty at the moment I thought I'd do a post on it! The stand out product by far is the Diptyque Rosafolia Candle, which I received for Valentine's day after a few not-so-subtle hints. The jar is just so beautiful and it smells divine, a blend of rose, geranium and ivy. As you can see, I've yet to light it,  but the scent still manages to fill the room!

Soap & Glory Hand Food is probably my all time favourite hand cream, it smells amazing, is incredibly moisturising but still sinks in and doesn't leave a greasy residue. I have the larger size as it comes with a handy pump and I seem to go through it very quickly. 

Caudalie Divine Oil is another long term favourite, it's just such a great multi-tasker, I use it on cuticles, dry patches and the ends of my hair before bed and any dryness is solved come morning! 

Of course I have to have a lip balm on there and at the moment it's the Shea Lip Butter from The Body Shop, not my favourite as it does tend to leave lips with pale cast but it is very moisturising and I'm trying to use it up! 

What's on your bedside table?

Valentine's Day Gift Guide - For Her

Kate Spade - Cedar Lane Lacey Wallet

Both pretty and practical. 

Jo Malone - Oud & Bergamot Cologne Intense 

Fragrance always goes down well on valentine's day, wether it's an old favourite or something new and exciting. 

Diptyque - Rosafolia Candle

I know I've mentioned this candle before but I couldn't help mentioning it again! It smells amazing and comes in the prettiest jar that will be useful long after the wax has burnt away.

Rosie for Autograph - Beau Silk Lace Underwear Set

By far my favourite set from the collection.


Or any flower that she loves, tulips are a great option at this time of year. Stick to single flower bouquets for a more modern feel.(image from pintrest) 

Nars - Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette

If she's a makeup lover, I guarantee this is on her wish list! It contains a great range of versatile wet and dry eye shadows. 

Monica Vinader - Riva Rose Gold Plated Diamond Ring

A beautiful ring in a timeless design that will work well on it's own as well as layered with other jewellery.
