Radiant Moments | Elemis Skin Care

I have always been a massive skin care freak, I could spend all day trying new products. I just love it. When I recently went away for my weekend away, I just had to have a facial and try out some of the elemis products. Elemis is always a brand that I read lots about and hear so many people loving it but never tried until now. 

When I was away I had the Elemis Tri-enzime resurfacing facial and loved it! All the produces just smell amazing, on the way out i decided to pick up a skin care set. I picked ups the Radiant Moments Normal/Combination. 

In this kit you get a cleanser, day cream, night cream and also a mask. I think those four are perfect if you traveling and need a little kit to take with you. Or even for a christmas gift. 

The four products in this kit are designed to work with each other to create the best outcome for you skin. Starting with the cleanser; New White Brightening Even Tone Cleanser 'this brightening,foaming cleanser gently removes impurities, reduces the apperaicne of excess oil to reveal super-clean and mattered completion'This is a gorgeous cleanser and I will most like get the full size when I've used up all the sample in this kit. 

Hydra-balance Day Cream ' This is an ultra-light, antioxidant rich day cream which helps provides hydration and help balance norm lot combination skin. Hyaluronic acid locks in moisture, while Meadowsweet extracts regulates oil production' I must say this day moistuirse is a lot heavier then I am used to and i was slightly worried it may course my make up to slip throughout the day. I can assure you it didn't - bonus!! 

Hydra-Nourish Night Cream 'This antioxidant rich night cream helps prevent moisture loss and works to nourish and de-stress tried skin. Hyaluronic Acid provide regular hydration and by moving skin is left feeling replenished' Again I can't not fault this product at all. Gorgeous and silky to apply and smells gorgeous. 

Lastly Herbal Lavender Repair Mask 'This skin balancing and calming mask is ideal for sensitive, blemish prone skin. The mask deeply cleanses, rebalanced and nourishes' With this mask I have found that you do get a slight tingling which they do warn you out on the packaging. For a mask I'm not too sure if it does wonders. 

Overall I do love this little kit. I think its perfect for someone who is always on the go, loves their skin care or even for a little treat for yourself!

November Favorites

The countdown for Christmas has started and I can honestly say I am just so so excited! To get it all started I have a favourites for you, there are only a few ned things that I have been loving this month, as most of my core favourites are very much the same. 

The Body Shop Instablur Primer. Over the last 6 months I must have got through about 2 tubes of this stuff. I love it, its very much become a staple in my core foundation base routine and I don't think I could live without it! I have just finished my last tube so if you have any primers that you love let me know as I'm always looking for new ones! 

Anther item from The Body Shop is their advent calendar, I have been posting this on my social media as I'm just so excited to have my hands on one this year after missing out last year. I love the excited of getting a new sample product each day!! 

For me, my skin care doesn't really change. I rarely try out new products and brands. However after stumbling over Elemis that has very truly changed. I love been loving there products over the month of November. Their products smell gorgeous, they apply nicely to the skin. I may do a full run down on what products I have and how I use them on a future post. 

Last favourite of the month is a hand cream, I always seem to have a hand cream on me whether I'm in the car, on the go or at my desk. Over the last part of this month I have been getting really dry almost cracked skin over my knuckles, Im not sure what could be the cause of this. After talking to mum about it she recommend the E45 range, so I hoped into boots and picked up the intense recovery for very dry skin. It has no smell to it and so far its looking good!

Just a few favourites this months, but sure I will have a fully packed favourites next month! Im trying to be more regular with my posting, so a new post will be going up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until Christmas.

Reindeers and Fairy lights

If you follow me on any social media that you will know that I have been away for the weekend. We decided to have a little family break before all the manic of Christmas begins. Honestly I didn't take that many photos during the trip, as you could have seen them in last years post. However on the last morning just before we were about to head off, we did some shopping and visited the village square. For the first time that trip I couldn't put my camera down, so to get us in the Christmas sprit, I'm going to share with you some of the gorgeous christmassy photos from that morning.

The Autumn Detox

I've been on a bit of a mind and body cleanse over the last part of November. I think most of it is just trying to get organised for the madness of Christmas, which is literally around the corner. I have been doing a few things to just help me ease into all the madness a little easier. 

Starting with the mind, I always feels like my mind is racing whether is with blog idea, christmas idea, anything, you name it I'm properly thinking it. To help with this I've been trying to write as much of this down as I possibly can, so notebooks have been a massive part of my life. I used to just have one or a few for everything, however I found that this just wasn't working for me so now I have blog note book, a work one and also one for personal life as well. This has really helped me declutter all those random thoughts.

Another thing I've been doing to really help to just chill, is taking some time of out for myself. I literally mean turning all electrical items off and do something that doesn't involve looking at a screen. For me I've been either reading or using the adult colouring books, I find that both of these really to help you to shut off even if it is just for 5-15 minutes. 

Moving more onto body, upping my water intake has been a must for me. I barely touch liquids throughout the day ( I know its bad) and I really do suffer. To help with this I will now carry around the little 1lr bottles in my bag. Once I get through it I will re-fill and try and drink another, honestly I properly get through 1lr and a half a day and this is very much a work on progress! 

Something very different for me to have tried are these detox tea. You see them posted everywhere from social media, to adverts, they just seem to be everywhere. I have always been very curious to know a few things: do they actually work? how will they affect me? can i lose the bloated feeling? A few weeks ago I took the plunge and got myself some of the Bootea 14 days detox tea. A little run down of this brand, you get a day time tea and a night time tea which you drink very other day. The night time tea is a laxative, so its basically designed to help flush out toxins. I got on pretty well with it, I did get the few stomach aches but that was mostly because I needed to go to the bathroom. After finishing the 14 days, I do feel less bloated and have lost about half a stone but it didn't give me more energy and my skin also didn't clear up. I would 100% recommend it and would use it again. 

I've really found the few things in this post really helpful in allowing me to just chill and relax. 

Do you have anything you like to do?

Aussie Hair

I've always loved Aussie. The way it leaves my hair feeling and smelling is beyond gorgeous. 

Of course when I noticed Boots had a offer on, I knew I had to stock up. I also picked a few new bits up as well. 

Unfortunately, i'm not a natural blonde. My poor hair has to go through highlighting and a lot of heat. I need products that are going to protect my hair, nourish and just make it easier to get a comb through! 

The shampoo and conditioner is a re-purchase. I love love love this combo, they work perfectly. They really do nourish and hydrate, perfect if you do colour your hair or use a lot of heat. I normally get the smaller bottles, as the bigger bottles don't fit in my shower, however boots were doing 2 for £9 on the 500ml so of course I had to get them. 

Moving onto styling and finishing products. As my hairs getting longer, I've found it can get very tangled throughout the day. I noticed Aussie has a product which seems perfect. Miracle Recharge Luscious Long Conditioning Spray, so fingers crossed this will work. 

For a finishing product, I picked up their hairspray, mostly because it smells gorgeous!! 

Both of these products were on 2 for £6. Overall a bargain for such gorgeous products! 

Much Love
