August Wishlist

in , , , by Kirsty Milward, 31.7.17

If you haven't already noticed, I've been really enjoying doing wishlists on my blog lately. So I thought I'd do a wishlist for August. I guess you could say that this is a collective wishlist because it's not just clothes this time. I've also got beauty products and a few homeware items because as you may have seen on my twitter/instagram that I'm in the midst of revamping my bedroom on a kind of budget. Some of these things I could go out and pick up right now because they are super cheap but I'm trying to be sensible and stop spending money on things I don't really need right now lol.

As I mentioned I'm currently revamping my bedroom and because I have a "brick" feature wall which is where my bed is, I'm trying to keep it simple and dress up my bed with pretty cushions rather than busy looking bedding and have a plain duvet cover instead. I really like the look of the Velvet cushion cover I've come across, it's really pretty and would blend in with my room nicely and it'd also look pretty with a cushion I picked up the other day. 

I'm really liking the whole tie-up top look all of a sudden, I've currently only got 2 tops with the tie-up at the front and I really like the printed one I've come across whilst browsing Primark's site. I'm going to be paying a visit to Chester sometime in the next week or so, so If I see it there, I will definitely pick it up.

First up of the beauty products I'm going to mentioning in my wishlist is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette, I know everyone is raving about the new Naked Heat palette but I'm really like the look of the Sweet Peach palette that I'm guessing everyone is already over now. I just can't justify paying £39 on an eyeshadow palette right now though.

4. Benefit Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer £17.50 / 5.  New Look Cactus Print Duvet Set £27.99 / 6. Boohoo Contrast Trim Stripe T-shirt £12

Benefit have just released (well re-released) some new Boi-ing products and I'm really intrigued and want to try the airbrush concealer. I'm not sure what it was called before, but I like the sound of it. I have tried the original Industrial Bo-ing and loved it but it is pretty pricey for a concealer really, isn't it? But we'll see if I give in and buy it.

I know I'm completely contradicting myself about not wanting a busy duvet cover but New Look have just started to sell bedding and I love the look of this cute cactus print duvet cover and I like that it's reversible too. If my room wasn't so busy with my brick feature wall and bold colours then I'll definitely pick up this duvet set.

I really like stripes right now, yes my wardrobe is already full of stripe prints and it literally makes my eyes go weird when I open my wardrobe doors but what's another striped t-shirt added to the collection?

7. H&M House Shelf £17.99 / 8. Espirit Polka Dot Jersey Dress £39  / 9. Boohoo Elephant Print Beach Bag £10

I'm debating on whether to put up some shelves in my room, I'm not sure if the house shelf from H&M would be a little overpowering but I thought I'd add it on here anyway. It's so cute and I think it's a great price.

As I mentioned on my previous wish list before this one, I'm on the lookout for some pretty but flattering dresses and I really like the look of the Polka Dot Jersey Dress above. It looks comfy and floaty and I think the sleeves are cute too. 

I'm obsessed with anything with elephants printed on again this Summer and I soon as I saw the Boohoo Elephant Print Beach Bag I was automatically drawn to it. I may have to buy it, like asap. It's gorgeous and eyecatching and a bargain for £10.

10.  New Look LED Dream Light £12.99  / 11. LUSH The Big Sleep Jelly Bath Bomb £4.95 / 12. H&M Canvas Cushion Cover £8.99

I really like warm-toned kind of lights in my room because it makes my room feel so relaxed and cosy at night. I love that cosy kind of feeling even in the Summer and I really like the look of the "dream" light from New Look, it's just really pretty and would look nice on top of my old 1940's fireplace in my room.

I haven't bought anything new from LUSH for a while, I always pick up things I know that I love. So when I saw that they have released some new products I had a nosey and quite a lot of the products caught my eye. This jelly bath bomb, in particular, it's called "The Big Sleep" and it sounds like it's the same scent as "Twilight" which is one of my favourites.

Again another homeware item the H&M Canvas Cushion Cover caught my eye and I like the abstract kind of vibe it gives off. I really want to layer my cushions on my bed (yes I'm one of those people) and I just like the look of this one.

13. Primark Wine Cord Pinafore £12 / 14. Boohoo Printed Off The Shoulder Dress £18 / 15. LUSH Just To Clarify Jelly Face Mask £6.95

I still haven't come across a pinafore dress which suits me and it sucks. This wine coloured pinafore dress is so pretty and if I see it in store I'm definitely going to try it (but I'm not getting my hopes up). I think it's more of an Autumn/Winter kind of looking dress but I'd definitely buy it. 

I really like the colours as well as the print of the Bardot dress from Boohoo and that it looks really comfortable. 

Another newbie from LUSH is a range of Jelly face masks which are self-preserving! I'm definitely going to pick one of these up to give it a try because I'm really intrigued. I think Just To Clarify is the mask which will suit my skin but I'm going to go in LUSH first and see what they smell like because there's nothing worse than buying a face mask and hating the smell of it. 

So there's my August Wishlist. 
What's on your wishlist for this month?

I've been trying out some of the newly released Charcoal & Bamboo Range from T-Zone for someone who has oily/combination skin, this range sounded perfect when I got an email asking if I would like to try out some of the range.

The range consists of 8 new products - Face Wipes, Cleanser, Self-Heating Face Mask, Peel Off Mask, Face Scrub, Nose Strips and No Shine Papers. All of the products are ideal for oily and spot-prone skin. The activated charcoal works as a magnet to draw out impurities from the pores. Whilst the bamboo extract should help to control oil and dirt and the grapefruit present helps to soothe the skin. All of the products are Mineral Oil-Free too. Here's what I thought about the products I received to review.

Ultra Purifying Face Wash £3.25*
First up is the Purifying Face Wash. It's a water-based gel cleanser and smells absolutely lovely. The Bamboo and Grapefruit scent definitely comes through more than the Charcoal scent. It foams up nicely and is easy to wash off. It freshens up my skin nicely and does a good job and my skin feels lovely and clean afterwards. If you're looking for a really affordable cleanser then I'd definitely recommended this. I've actually already featured the cleanser in a blog post last week which you can read here.

No Shine Papers £2.99*
With no shine papers or "blotting paper", as I call them, I feel like they are all the same really. Obviously, with me having oily skin, I do use no shine papers and always have a pack in my bag. These definitely do the job and as stated on the package, they don't smudge makeup and controls any shine and it's great to have in your bag, especially during the summer when my skin gets even more oily.  

Self Heating Masks* (Not sure on price)
Lastly, I received a pack of Self Heating Masks There is 4 in a pack which I think is really good. Because of them being in a sachet, they are great for travelling. The mask is very thick and reacts to water. It's a great quick fix kind of mask - you massage it in for about a minute and then leave it an extra minute and then remove. It doesn't harden like a normal kind of face mask. I did have some redness on my face after removing because I'm guessing it's because of it being a self-heating mask. The redness went away after about 20 minutes. The mask left my skin really soft and felt like it had a really deep cleanse. 

I've really enjoyed trying everything I was sent from the new T-Zone range, I'm definitely going to pick up some more from the range to try out soon, I think my favourite is probably the cleanser and I can't believe how well it works for my skin and how affordable it is.

I think if you have oily/combination/spot prone skin then this range is going to be a new favourite to you. It's so cheap and easy to get hold of as it's available in Superdrug. Also if you're someone who wants the benefits from Activated Charcoal but not keen on the smell of Charcoal then you'll like these products because I personally cannot smell Charcoal and can only smell the Grapefruit and Bamboo.

*PR samples,  all opinions are my own

I recently was contacted by Lou the owner of and was kindly asked if I would be interested in reviewing an health/beauty item from the site. I had never heard of Loulou-loves before and was surprised to find that there are lots of items available on the website from - skincare, health, jewellery, personalised items and more. Everything I came across in the health and beauty section was really affordable and there is also a lot of items on the website overall that would be great for gifts too.

I decided to try out the Dr Kimoto Warming Aromatherapy Eye Masks* RRP £12.99. I was really intrigued to try these out because I have seen these about and other brands sell these and seeing and hearing so many people rave about them. I do struggle to sleep most nights and find it hard to fall asleep even if I'm absolutely shattered, thanks to my anxiety. I also have been unfortunate and seemed to have got the "headache gene" from my dad, so as soon as I hit 21 a few years ago, certain foods and drinks trigger headaches depending more on what brand they are from (I know, it's pretty odd). It's very annoying, so as you can imagine I want to find something which I can rely on to help me when I'm having a really bad night of not being able to get to sleep and/or crippling headaches. 

The Dr Kimoto micro-steam aromatherapy eye masks are disposable and only to be used once. They are activated by air and heat up quickly to a nice 40 degrees and lasts for around 15-20 minutes.  In the pack there are 8 masks (making them out to be just over £1.60 per mask, bargain!) According to Dr Kimoto they can provide relief from dry eye symptons, mild tension headaches, eye fatigue, jet-leg, travelling, insomnia and stress.

The masks are individually wrapped in a foil-like packet and once you open the packet the the mask starts to heat up. I'll admit, because of the print, they do kind of look like you're wearing a sanitary pad on your face but eh never mind (lol). Each mask also has loops for your ears and fit comfortably.

I can honestly say these have been a complete life saver, well sleep saver anyway. I've used three of them so far and each time they worked so well for me. Obviously I can't use these every single night because it would end up costing a lot of money per month but on nights when I'm literally clock watching because my anxiety is getting the better of me or I just can't drop off to sleep even though I'm shattered, these are great. The scent of the chamomile and lavender is very subtle but is there and it definitely helps promote relaxation. One of the times I wore the eye mask I actually fell asleep because it made me feel so relaxed. I will definitely use these from now on and always have some in my house for when I'm struggling to sleep. I can't comment on if it helps headaches because I haven't had one for a few weeks (very unusual, but yay). Overall, I really recommend these eye warming masks and also recommend browsing too to find more interesting products (I've already added an sonic facial cleanser on my wishlist from the website, oops).

I've also been kindly given a promo code so you can get 15% OFF any purchase:

What's In My Bag? | Beauty Edition

in , , by Kirsty Milward, 28.7.17

I did a blog post earlier this year "What's In My Bag?" and it became one of my most viewed blog posts at the time very quickly. So because of that, I've decided to do an updated kind of "What's In My Bag?" blog post but focusing more on the beauty side of things I carry around with me day-to-day. Hope you enjoy reading it.

I love my cute, Baby Tangle Angel*, yes it may look like something you used on the hair of a doll when you were younger but it does the job and doesn't take over my bag, so it's really handy.

Oil Control Sheets
I think I got these in a subscription box and I've kind of forgot I even had them, so after finding them again, I've been using them and they do a world of difference to keep my oily skin less well, oily. These are a must have in my bag now.

I always have a lipbalm in my bag, right now I'm using a bubble gum lipbalm from Candescent and it's literally like a LUSH lipbalm for a fraction of the price. If you search "Candescent Shop" on Depop they have lots of different flavours available.

Hand Sanitizer
I always carry a hand sanitizer in my bag because obviously, I want to clean my hands of germs, also because my immune system is so bad, I do tend to pick up things easier so I just feel more prepared with a hand sanitizer in my bag, idk why. I've currently got the newly released Clip and Clean "All About Me" Hand Sanitizer* from Mad Beauty and it smells so lovely. They kind of remind me of the Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers but obviously, the Mad Beauty ones are easier to get hold of.

Hand Lotion
I like keeping my hands nice and smooth and after using hand sanitizer I like to pop on hand lotion, just to keep my hands feeling soft. I'm currently using either my Soap and Glory Hand Food which has been a firm favourite for a couple of years now I think and I'm also loving the Mad Beauty Coconut Hand Cream* which I received in the Ultimate Hand Set I was kindly sent. I always find myself using more Coconut scented lotions and potions during the Summer and I love the hand cream from the set.

I always have at least 2 lipsticks in my bag (usually thrown in at the last minute). Right now my lipbalm of choice is the Candescent Bubblegum Lip Balm and for lipstick, it's currently between Rimmel The Only One Lipstick in the shade "Naughty Nude" and The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in Crete Carnation. I also carry around powder sometimes too.

I always carry around a small perfume with me, right now I'm loving AVON Dreams and also Flowers from Next. Dreams is a more sweet but musky kind of scent and Flowers is well, floral obviously lol. I really like them both and I need to pick them both up again soon because they are both nearly empty!

My Summer Skincare Routine *

in , , , by Kirsty Milward, 26.7.17

I'm finally writing my blog post about my current "Skincare Saviours" and what's working for my skin during the Summer. We have been pretty lucky this Summer because we have had a fair few heat waves but the heat does not agree with my oily skin, so here's my skincare routine and what products have been working for me this Summer.

For cleansing my skin, I tend to use 2-3 cleansers in rotation depending on how my skin is acting. I'm currently using my trusty Tea Tree Cleanser from The Body Shop which is a gel-like cleanser with a pretty thick consistency. The other two products I currently have in rotation are the Sensilab Cerin Acne Cleansing Gel* which I tend to only use when my skin is breaking out because of hormones, it contains tea tree essential oil and it narrows the pores and helps to maintain the balance between fat and moisture in the skin with drying it out. Also a newbie I'm really liking is the newly released T-Zone Charcoal & Bamboo Purifying Face Wash* which is mineral-oil free and contains naturally purifying activated Charcoal. I find having a few cleansers in the rotation really works for my skin and my skin doesn't get immune to one product if that makes sense.

For toner I'm currently using the Garnier PureActive Sensitive Anti-Blemish Tonic, I did lose faith in this a little a while ago because it was like my favourite skincare product because it really helped to clear my skin. But then all of sudden it stopped working for me and I was gutted. But I've recently started using it again and it's working really well for me again (for now anyway), after using it for about 4 days in a row I saw a huge difference in my skin and I've continued to use it since. Because I'm currently using a Microdermabrasion device once a week which I will be reviewing soon, I can't use the Garnier PureActive Tonic afterwards because of the active ingredients present - so I use the Simple Soothing Facial Toner for the following 24 hours after using the Microdermabrasion device and I also used the Simple Soothing Facial Toner when I'm home and just want to refresh my face a little.

My current go-to moisturiser for Summer is The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream, I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of the scent but it does work really well for me. It's really light weight and it's not greasy at all, so it's perfect for my oily skin type. Also, I've been using it for the past couple of months and it still looks almost full because a little goes a long way with it.

I tend to use an exfoliator and also a face mask twice a week, depending on how my skin is and if it's acting up or not. For an exfoliator, I'm currently using either Newtons Labs Blackhead Fighting Facial Scrub which is more of a cream-like exfoliator which is a natural antibacterial scrub. Or I use the Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Facial Scrub which is grittier than the Newtons Labs exfoliator.

For face masks, I'm currently using the LUSH Don't Look At Me fresh face mask which contains lemon juice to tone complexion and rice syrup and grapefruit oil to give it a scrub-like texture. It's definitely a new favourite from LUSH. I also have been loving for the past couple of months The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash.Scrub.Mask which I picked up when I got my Tea Tree Cleansers. I only really use it as a face mask but when I wash away the mask, it works as an exfoliator too.

Also adding to my deep cleanse kind of days I really like the Superdrug Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel to even out my complexion. It really makes my face look radiant the following morning and it smells lovely - kind of like a floral but fruity scent.

So there are my current go-to skincare products.

This year I've been really getting into skincare more and finally trying to figure out what products work for me and don't and so on. I was excited when an an email landed in my inbox early last month asking if I would like to try out and review the SENSSEGo! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush* and obviously I said yes! I've been debating on buying a facial cleansing brush for a while but because I wasn't sure what would be best for me and my skin, I kind of talked myself out of it. 

Because Sensse are a brand that I've never heard of or tried products of before, I didn't really know what to expect if I'm being honest. The Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush arrived in such a pretty, well presented box - perfect if you were planning on buying someone one of these! I love the white simple box with the pretty Rose Gold writing.

Inside the box is an plastic covering to keep everything in place (which I've obviously removed for the photos) and then inside sits the cute little brush with the rose gold detailing around the power button. Also the brush has a cover to keep the bristles from getting damaged and another brush head for exfoliation. Underneath the brush in the box is the instruction manual and the USB charger.

You can use the brush to help remove makeup up (avoiding the eye area) or just to use to cleanse your face as normal. All you have to do is dampen your face and the brush head and apply your cleansing product to the desired area. The brush is really easy to use, press it once for low vibration and press twice for high vibration. You then just place the brush against your face, applying no pressure and gently move around in circular motions

The sensitive brush which can be used for daily cleansing is really soft and gentle on the skin and the exfoliator brush is a little more bristly as expected but still not too bristly. They both work really well for my skin and have been a dream to use over the past few weeks with the hot weather making me overheat and well, making my skin more of an oily nightmare. I'm pretty sure it's helped to keep any new breakouts at the minimum and it definitely makes my face feel like it's had a really good deep cleanse when I use either of the brushes included. Another great thing about it is that once it's been fully charged (which takes about 2 hours) you can then get 180 cleanses before you need to charge it again which is impressive too. 

Overall I would recommend picking one of these up if you are looking for a handy little cleansing brush which is travel friendly and easy to use. 

If you would be interested in trying out the SENSSEGo! Mini Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush then you're in luck! You can be in with a chance to win one yourself below...

*gifted item, all opinions are my own

I'm quite self-conscious about my teeth, as I've mentioned before on my blog. Because I'm so pale, I feel like my teeth look slightly yellow all the time. So I'm always trying out new products or safe ways to make my teeth look a little whiter so I don't feel as self-conscious. If you're like me and feel a little self conscious about your teeth then today's post I will be sharing easy ways you can get your teeth looking more whiter and healthier and gain back some more confidence.

This sounds pretty obvious I know, but using teeth whitening products helps hugely. I do use a variety of teeth whitening products. I really like the Beverly Hills Formula toothpastes, they are a little more pricier than your usual toothpaste at £4.99 but you can definitely see and feel the difference after using them. I've also noticed that Superdrug have brought out a "Charcoal" range recently so I'm going to pick that up soon too to try it out. I also was recently sent some products from the Janina range which you can read all about here. The Extra Fresh Whitening Foam from Janina has been working really well for me and I use it a couple times a week and have definitely seen improvements since using it. Also remember to floss your teeth regularly, I do mine every other day. It's another thing that people forget to do to stop plague building up in between your teeth.

I came across this Pinterest hack a while ago and I still use it now... Using the inside of an Banana peel and rubbing it on your teeth for around 2 minutes then brush away inside of the banana peel and brush your teeth as normal. I'll admit it feels kind of weird but definitely worth it. Because the Banana peel is jam packed with Potassium, Magnesium and Manganese they all work together to whiten your teeth. Pretty impressive, right?

I know dentists can be pretty scary but visiting your dentists when you should (instead of making excuses, we've all done it) is really important. You could be missing out on an appointment which could potentially save your teeth in the long run. Also your dentist can tell you if you need to floss more or give you tips on products to use for your teeth.

If you're really not happy with your teeth because of discolouration or any other problem like - gaps in teeth, worn and chipped teeth, Flurosis and more then maybe Porcelain Veneers may be something to consider? At Harley Street Smile Clinic they offer Porcelain Veneers and you can get a free E-Consultation via the website too. 

Their Porcelain Veneers are hand crafted and wafer thin and help to improve the appearance of your teeth. The procedure is pain-free and you will not feel more than a scratch and you can go back to work pretty much straight away. An average treatment is 4-10 veneers on the front teeth and then a whitening treatment on the rest of your teeth. After just 2 pain-free appointments (90 minutes each) you can be walking be around with a brand new smile to show off.

Wabi Skincare got in touch with me last month asking if I would like to review their natural coffee scrub and I was given the option of trying either their Mocha and Peppermint scrub or the Sweet Orange. Because I'm not a huge Orange scent fan, I decided on the Mocha and Peppermint* scrub, plus I love anything minty and it definitely wakens up your body first thing in the morning. 

Wabi specialise in natural, ethical, coffee skincare. Which I love. I'm a huge fan of coffee scrubs, I've recently become a little obsessed on the Scrub Love body scrubs but I do think they are expensive for the amount of the product you get and I do prefer a body scrub tub rather than a sachet packaging. Especially if I'm spending £10+.

They source all of their coffee beans from small speciality farms and London's top independent coffee roasters' and make use of an excess product which would otherwise go to waste. Their products do NOT contain any chemicals, parabens, microbeads or palm oil. Everything is natural with biodegradable exfoilators.

I usually give products at least 2 weeks before reviewing on my blog but I've literally used this twice and I'm completely sold. It exfoliates really well and leaves my skin glowing and sooo soft. I'd say if you're not a fan of a gritty body scrub then maybe this isn't for you but I personally love a body scrub when you can tell it's doing it job and this definitely does. Because of it containing coconut oil and olive oil, it leaves my skin feeling so smooth. Also because of it containing Peppermint, it kind of takes the strong coffee scent edge off and replaces it with a more well, minty scent. Think candy canes and coffee and that's exactly what I think this smells like.  

I also really like the glass packaging and simplicity and it just looks so much more expensive than it really is at £14. Overall, I'm really impressed and I know if I do (finally) do another "monthly favourites" blog post soon that this will be in it, that's for sure.

Also if you would like to try out the body scrubs then Wabi has kindly given me a 20% off discount code - "WABIBEAUTYBLOGGER"

*PR/gifted item, all opinions are my own

I thought because I've "accidentally" placed two orders on The Body Shop during the 40% OFF sale that I would do a haul kind of blog post. I haven't done a haul on my blog since either late last year or early this year, so it's about time I did another. I haven't gone crazy and spent a fortune, I think all together, thanks to the promotion and also I had a £5 Love Your Body voucher, everything came to just over £22 and for the amount of things I picked up, I think it's a bargain. Here's more about what I picked up...

Pinita Colada Body Sorbet 
After picking up the Pinita Colada Shower Gel and Body Butter last month, I really wanted to pick up another product in the range. So when I saw that this was in the sale I decided to give it a go. It's so refreshing to put on when the weather is hot and it smells amazing. So I've picked up two of them because they are only limited edition for the Summer. 

English Dawn Gardenia Shower Gel 
This isn't for me, it's to pop in my mums birthday bag along with some other bits, I always get her a few shower or bath products to go along side with her main presents. I'm not 100% sure if she's going to like the scent so I've literally bought a fail safe Dove shower gel as well just incase lol, she's so awkward. But I hope she does like it, I think it's really nice, it's floral but not too heavy if that makes sense.

Fuji Green Tea Body Sorbet

After picking up the Pinita Colada Body Sorbet and loving it, I decided to pick it up in the Fuji Green Tea scent too in my second order. Again, it's really refreshing and the scent lingers for hours. I've literally been asked what perfume I'm wearing whilst wearing the Body Sorbets. 

Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops
Because the majority of the foundations in my collection right now are not the perfect match for my skin, I've decided to pick up some lightening drops because I think it will save me money in the long run. The majority of the foundations are good but it's the shade (even though they usually are the lightest shade). So I've decided to go down the lightening drops route and hopefully they will work for me, I'll probably do a review kind of blog post soon.

Honeymania Lip Butter

I didn't need another lip balm/butter but I decided to get another one anyway. I'll be honest, this doesn't really smell of Honey that much but I think I got it for less than £2 so I'm not too fussed. It's a nice sized lip balm to pop in your bag when you're on the go and it is really moisturising.

Camomile Gentle Eye Make Up Remover
My ultimate favourite eye makeup remover is the Simple Dual Effect Eye Makeup Remover, it's amazing, it literally melts off your eye makeup in a matter of seconds. I did a review about here a while ago. But I have seen people say how good this eye makeup remover is from The Body Shop, so I thought I'd pick it up in the 60ml bottle to try it out. 

Matte Lip Liquid - Crete Carnation
I was kindly sent one of these Matte Lip Liquids and I love it, I received the shade Sydney Amaryllis (it's the lipstick I'm wearing in my current profile photo if anyone is wondering). They are very similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, which I love. So I decided to pick up the shade Crete Carnation, I really wanted to pick up another shade as well as this one (which I've forgotten the name of, oops) but it was out of stock. But I love this shade, it's a very pretty pink colour but not too vibrant, it's a nice everyday type of pink. I sometimes find "nude" pinks often look vibrant on me because of being so pale but this shade is perfect. If you're a pale girl like me and you're looking for a pretty petal kind of pink lip colour then I really recommend this one. I will be definitely picking up some more of the liquid lipsticks from The Body Shop soon.

Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask
After picking up some of the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop back in April after so many people recommended the range to me to help my oily/spot prone skin, I haven't looked back since. I still pick up the odd cleanser or two or get sent skin care products to review but I haven't come across anything that tops the Tea Tree range (yet). So I decided to pick up the Tea Tree Purifying Mask. I'll admit I probably wouldn't have bought this if it wasn't for the 40% off code because it's £11 when full price. But we'll see, I'll probably do a blog post review about this soon or feature it in my "New In Drawer" blog post with a little review.

I did also have a few other things in the orders I placed but unfortunately, they went out of stock after I'd placed the orders. But I'm still really happy with what I've got and I can't wait to try everything out properly.
