Seascape Body Wash & Body Lotion Review

Hey guys! Today I am going to be reviewing the Seascape Uplift Body Wash* and the Les Petits Body Lotion*, I have been using them both for a couple of weeks now and I have been really enjoying using them. The body wash is in the Uplift range which contains natural essential oils of jersey Eucalyptus, Lime to energise and Lavender to refresh the senses. I can really smell the lavender in this, I don't love the scent but if you like lavender then you will like it. It lathers up nicely and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry like some shower gels can do. The les petits Body Lotion is gentle and suitable for sensitive skin and is free from paraben, silicon, petroleum and sulphates, it contains natural essential oils of lavender and Chamomile to sooth and calm, Shea butter and olive oil to moisturise and jersey beeswax to lock in the moisture. What i have been liking about this body lotion is that it is very light but also moisturising, it sinks into the skin quickly so you don't have that greasy sticky feeling, it has made my skin really soft, I also love the packaging and that fact that it comes with a pump as it makes it really quick to use. 

Over all I like both of these products, the only thing I don't love is the scent but that's personal preference, if you love lavender scents then I think these are definitely worth a look at. the body wash is really nice as its not harsh and leaves your skin feeling soft and the body lotion really moisturises the skin but sinks in quickly.

Boots Haul! ft Bourjois, L'Oreal, Avene, Hydraluron

So I went shopping yesterday and of course made a b-line straight for Boots, as you do! I didn't have anything in mind that I 'needed' to get but as I'm sure most of you beauty lovers know... Boots baskets can quite easily fill up even when you just pop in for 'essentials' which I did do. I picked up a few essentials like cotton buds, nail polish remover, etc... but then I also picked up some beauty products I didn't necessarily need, but you know how it is!
L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution - £4.99
As I was browsing the aisles of boots, I saw the L'Oreal 3 in 1 purifying micellar solution, I had seen this on a few blogs and ogled at it before, but never actually made a purchase. If you have ever tried Bioderma before or similar products, which I'm sure you have! This is the same type of thing - a water based, oil solution that removes make-up, but it is lot more easily acessible in the UK and cheaper too at just £4.99 for 200ml! I love Bioderma for removing my make-up before I do a deep cleanse, so I'm hoping I will love this too! It is currently on offer in Boots for £3.33.

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon 'Orange Punch', 'Peach On The Beach' - £7.99
A little heads up - Bourjois are on 3 for 2 at the moment in Boots. I picked up two of their Colour Boost Lip Crayons, Orange Punch which is a true orange, and Peach On The Beach which is a peachy pink. These felt really nice when swatched on my hand, they have a decent colour pay off and seemed very moisturising. They are also supposed to be 10 hour wear and have SPF 15. I'm looking forward to trying these out!

Bourjois Bronzing Primer - £9.99
I'm really looking forward to trying this out as well, I swatched it on my hand and it feels very smooth and blended in easily. It is a cream bronzer that you are supposed to apply underneath your foundation. I have the Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronze Universal, which is another cream bronzer but obviously a lot more expensive so I'm looking forward to seeing how the Bourjois one compares. 

Hydraluron Moisture Booster - £24.99
I have been waiting to try this for ages, it's not cheap but it was on offer at Boots for £16.66 (offer is still on!) so I added it to my basket! I won't go to much into it but it is a serum that you apply underneath your moisturiser, it contains hyralunic acid which helps to boost moisture levels in the skin. I have dehydrated skin so I can't wait to try this!

L'oreal Ever Riche No Sulphates Shampoo and Conditioner - £5.99 each
As you may know if you have read my haircare routine post (link) I like sulphate free shampoos and conditoners, so when I saw these new ones from L'oreal I thought I would try them out. I got the ones for dry fine hair, I'm not in love with the smell but it's ok. I haven't tried them yet but i'll let you know what I think. These shampoos and conditioners are currently on offer for 2 for £9.

Avene Thermal Spring Water 
I picked this up as I am going to florida soon, I thought I would take it with me to spray to cool me down, it's just water in a can basically. 

So thats everything I got, let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think? I will be reviewing them when I have tried them out so keep an eye out for that!

July Favourites!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a good July! July was a good month for me as it was my birthday! And not to mention the amazing weather we have been having in England for once! I can't believe it's August already, I'm not excited about summer coming to an end! But I am off to Florida this month so I'm really looking forward to that! As July has been and gone though I thought i would do a monthly favourites, so here is what I've been loving this month.july beauty favourites
Mac harmony blush
Mac Painterly Paint Pot
Revlon super lustrous lipgloss kiss me coral

Revlon Super lustrous lipgloss
Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish 'Hip Hop' - I have been loving this nail polish by Rimmel, the colour is gorgeous and perfect for summer. The formula is amazing and so long- lasting, such great quality and so affordable! I have already blogged about this shade along with 'Summer Orange' so I will link that here if you want to see swatches.

Josie Maran Argan Oil - This stuff is amazing! It is just pure organic argon oil, no other ingredients. You can use it on your body, hair, skin, cuticles, you name it! I love it mainly for skincare purposes though, I apply at night at the end of my skincare routine and in the morning my face is unbelievably soft and hydrated! love love love! Unfortunately you cannot purchase Josie Maran in the UK as far as I'm aware, this is just the small bottle that I picked up in New York, but I will be purchasing the full size when I go back to the States.

Mac 'Harmony' Blush - I have blogged about this recently so I wont go into much detail, you can read the post here. But i have been loving it this month and it deserves a place in my favourites! Great mid-tone brown shade with a pinky undertone that is perfect for contouring.

Victoria Secret 'Pure Seduction' body lotion - I love the scent of this, it is 'red plum and fresia' just amazing fruity scent, very strong smelling which I like, but if your not a fan of strong scented body lotion this isn't for you. i love it though, it also absorbs nicely and doesn't leave me feeling greasy which is something I can't stand when it comes to body moisturisers. It's not the most moisturising but does a good enough job, but i mainly love it for the scent!

Mac 'Painterly' Paint Pot - I love Mac paint pots in general, this one is a skin-toned shade with a pink undertone, so it doesn't provide any colour to my lids, but it makes a great base for any eye shadow look or even applied on it's own just to even out the lids and brighten things up, and stop creasing which is how I've been wearing it.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss 'Kiss Me Coral' - This shade is a gorgeous coral, I've been loving it! The formula is also really good and not sticky.

Clarins liquid Bronze Self Tanning - Another product I have already blogged about so I'll link here if you want to read more, but it's amazing! I apply at night time after my skincare routine and it gives a lovely tanned glow in the morning, it is gradual so the first application it's quite subtle but can be built up.

So there a few product's I've been loving this month, let me know if you have tried any of these and what you think?
