Lush Pumpkin Bath Bomb

Ah Autumn, how I've missed you! I've always known Autumn was my favourite season, but I hadn't realised just quite how much I had indeed missed its beauty until the start of October fell upon us. All of a sudden it seems the leaves are changing, the hedgehogs are roaming, the nights are near darkening and I craved nothing more than a lovely warm bath as the rain tapped against the windows all afternoon. Whilst I do have other bath products ready and waiting, I simply craved a fun, colourful Lush bath, and so popped down to the Oxford Street store to take a cheeky look at the recently released Halloween and Christmas collections. My oh my! The colours, the rich, warming scents, the glitter! I think I could have spent quite a bit in there but I decided it wise to stick with two things to stop me from going completely loose: Snow Fairy shower gel (1 litre thank you!) and a new product for this years Autumn/Winter range: the Pumpkin Bath Bomb...

Five Boomerang Products

Hey everyone! I am back, and I'm back for good. Lots has been going on... doctors/hospital appointments, ill family members, dissertations... you get the gist. Anyhoo, today I thought I'd take it simple as I work my way getting back into things again, and so I thought I'd share with you five of my 'boomerang products' - aka a fancy name for those products I always seem to turn back to and those that are surely missed each time I swap my skincare routine around.

1. Nivea Q10 Plus Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream (link) < *AHHH it's only £5.99 at Boots right now!! *stocks up* - This is the first moisturiser I ever used back when my interest for skincare first sparked. Over half a decade later and I still always find myself turning to this bad boy. On those days where I want to know my skin will stay nourished but not turn greasy, or on days where I'm going for the best make-up possible - this is the product I always rely on. It's just so easy to smooth into the skin, contains SPF15 (which is an absolute must for me!), and sits under make-up perfectly. I've used this on acne-ridden, oily and then incredible dry skin over the years and it seemed to help a great deal with meeting the unique needs and demands of all those skin types. If you're first getting into beauty, or you're even a skincare pro, I'd 100% recommend picking up and trying out this moisturiser if you haven't already. Don't be put off by its low price! I've found this to be a lot more effective than a lot of high-end moisturisers! 

2. Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief Moisturiser* (link) - I'm actually going to be uploading a review focused solely on this product soon so I won't go on too much beyond that I honestly love this moisturiser on days where I don't plan on leaving the house (it doesn't contain SPF). Back in the heights of summer, my skin turned so incredibly dry which left some stubborn patches on my cheeks. Using this daily morning and night proved wonders, so I can't wait to see how it holds up during the winter months too!

The Beauty Expert Collection - The Rose Edition

Beauty Expert is one of my favourite places to online shop all things skincare and beauty. Not only do they stock an amazing range of brands and products, but they often host quite frequent discount offers which I've found to prove a lot more enticing than it's competitors. What is even more exciting however is that Beauty Expert have now launched their own collection series, 'The Beauty Expert Collection', whereby each collection that's released will contain selected products that tie in with a particular theme. For the collections launch, Beauty Expert decided to go with a rose theme, meaning all the products contained within will have some relation to rose, which personally I think is a perfect choice for these summer months as rose is one of those skincare saviours perfect for soothing irritated, perhaps sensitive skin that can sometimes arise at this time of year from sun exposure.

As you can see, the collection comes in a lovely little vanity case which feels of superb quality, making this particular collection a nice change from a usual cardboard box. I really feel that this simple touch makes the whole experience of uncovering the secrets within all that more exciting, and it really does help to add that luxury feel to the experience...
