A Soaper Glorious Obsession.

Happy Sunday Lovelies!

So today I thought that I would share my Soap & Glory collection with you. Having not really discovered the brand until late last year, I didn't quite realise how big my obsession has become... 

Products include:

Mist You Madly Body Spray
Glad Hair Day Shampoo & Conditioner
Peaches and Clean Deep Purifying Cleanser
The Scrub of Your Life Body Buffer
Sexy Mother Pucker XL in Pink Out Loud
The Daily Soothe Bath Float
Sugar Crush Body Scrub
Smoothie Breakfast Scrub Body Scrub
Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara
Sugar Crush Body Wash
Hand Food Mini Hand Cream
The Righteous Butter Body Butter
Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion
Hand Maid Mini Antibacterial Hand Wash
Hand Food Hand Cream
Heel Genius Foot Cream

So they are the products that I have but it doesn't stop there... I also started on the bathing accessories, which add to the perfect bath I have to say! At some point I want to try out some more of their makeup as well! 

Shower Puff
Jonathan Sauders Vanity Bag
Eyes Cool Cooling Gel Eye Mask
A Brush With Greatness Face Brush
Exfoliating Scrub Gloves
Hair Turban
Face Massage Mini Mit (Forgot to put it in the photo...)
Bath Pillow

So having only discovered it recently I have to say it has kind of maybe spiralled into an obsession, but its all just so lovely and leaves me smelling amazing! So how exactly do you expect me to resist it? Especially when Boots keep having 3for2 offers on all the time, you can't exactly say no can you? I really hope there are more of you out there struggling to not buy any more Soap & Glory products, I can't be the only one surely! ;)

What are you favourite products? Do you recommend any?

New Year, New Skincare.

Good evening lovelies! 

Its a bit late but Happy New Year to all you beautiful people!

So for christmas my boyfriends wonderful Mum & Sister gave me Debenhams giftcards, so that I could treat myself to some new makeup or whatever. One of them was limited edition, that entitled me to a 10% discount off my purchases and a free personal shopper - so heres what I picked up!

I wasn't sure what I was looking for as I didn't want anymore makeup and already bought some perfume, but I went ahead and booked my appointment anyway. When I got there I sat and had a chat with the lovely woman and explained that I had no idea at all what I wanted, but knew that I was looking at cosmetics. Then she made a suggestion about maybe looking into skincare? Why had I never thought of this before... so she sorted me out with a Clarins skin evaluation.

During this appointment I was able to try out all the products that the woman thought best for me and my skin, which can be quite troublesome (especially at the moment!). So far I have been using all sorts of different products including Lush cosmetics. but have found that after a while they no longer really clean my skin. Here are the 3 main products I chose to get me started:

One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser - £20.00
Water Purify One-Step Cleanser - £19.50
Daily Energizer Cream - £21.00

(Only came to £54.45 as I had a 10% discount!)

As you can see I've been using these products for a few days now, and only the tiniest amount is necessary to make my skin feel really clean and healthy! It is pricey for skincare but I have heard so many good things about Clarins that I couldn't help but see what it's all about. Although it has only been a short amount of time, I am already seeing improvements in my complexion and can't wait to see what long term use will do!

But to make things better... Debenhams had an offer on, buy 2 or more full sized products and receive 3 travel sized products completely free! Brilliant!

Heres what I chose:

Gentle refiner Exfoliating Cream
Water Purify One-Step Cleanser (I loved it so much I wanted a travel size!)
and HydraQuench Cream-Mask

...and to top it off, the lovely consultant gave me a handful of samples to keep me going! My favourite is by far the Eye Contour Gel to help remove the dark circles under my eyes, it's so cooling and works wonders!

So thats what I got! Have any of you ever used any Clarins products? What would you recommend/are your favourites?
