7 Products You Need From Origins

Origins

A few weeks ago I attended an event with Origins and Em Sheldon at the new Origins store in York and it was truly such an amazing evening.

We spent the evening chatting about Love Island and Naked Attraction and there was a whole host of yummy canapés, delicious cocktails and wonderful company. Em was such a delight to talk to and she really made an effort to talk to everyone. I had a facial using some of the incredible products and I spent the entire evening with a smile on my face; it was the best event I’ve ever been to.

Perfecting Problematic Skin With T-Zone*

T-Zone Charcoal and Bamboo Range

When T-Zone first got in contact with me about their new Charcoal and Bamboo Range, I was immensely excited as T-Zone is a brand that I’ve loved and used for many years to treat any teenage blemishes that popped up.

Skincare is my new beauty obsession and since trying out the new range that’s available from Superdrug, I’ve noticed a dramatic improvement in the state of my skin and it’s now looking better than ever.

Two Products To Try From The Ordinary

The Ordinary

It seems like everyone and their mum has been writing, talking and raving about the new budget skincare on the block: The Ordinary. The Ordinary is one of the many brands that falls under the Deciem umbrella, and with everyone in the Blogosphere talking about this coveted brand, I thought I’d give it a whirl.

I only picked up two products from The Ordinary at first, as I was a little apprehensive; could these products really be as good as everyone was claiming?!

I decided to pick up the Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution and the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA after reading many wonderful reviews about them. I love the simplicity of the packaging and the names of the products, as The Ordinary is truly intent on creating great products at affordable prices, without all the flamboyancy.

ghd IV Birthday Styler*

Last week, the biggest moment of my “blogging career” happened when I was very kindly sent out the limited edition ghd IV birthday styler* to try. I honestly couldn’t believe it and it’s safe to say I was more than excited to try it out!

I’ve been using it for almost two weeks now and I can already say that I’m in love. It’s so incredibly easy to use, and while I’ve been lucky enough to use a number of different models of ghd in the past, the birthday styler is definitely my favourite. The gorgeous purple colour is different to any other style of ghd and it’s just absolutely beautiful! The styler was packaged in a gorgeous purple box and it was presented so beautifully.

The birthday styler came with a heat protect spray which smells divine and has been amazing at protecting my hair when using the styler. I must admit – I’m not one for stylying my hair in the most adventurous ways but with the help of the birthday styler, I’ve definitely been persuaded to try more styles.

Rebalancing Your Body And Mind With The Body Shop

The Body Shop

Last week, the lovely Debra invited me along to The Body Shop Rebalance Your Body and Mind event in Leeds. It was honestly such a lovely night and I’m so grateful that Debra invited me along.

We met at Leeds train station and headed straight to the venue which was at The Body Shop store in Leeds. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of prosecco (which soon turned into three glasses, oops) and a whole host of delicious canapes. The event was hosted by the lovely girls at The Body Shop, including Sophie who hosted a wonderful talk, informing us all about the newest ‘Spa of the World’ products which by the way, are INCREDIBLE.

The Body Shop

After a number of talks from various members of staff, as well as the gorgeous Em Sheldon, we were given the chance to wander around the store and try the various products. There were also members of staff on hand offering hand and back massages, using the different products to show everyone how to use them to achieve the best results.

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then I’m sure you’ll know that as this post goes live I’m in Venice! To tie in with the holiday theme, (and trust me, there’s gonna be a lot of that over in this little corner of the Internet for the next few months!) I thought I’d put together a post of all the travel essentials that I’ve taken with me.

As we’ve only brought hand luggage with us, we had to make sure that all of our travel products were miniatures; and that’s where the Boots 3 for 2 offer came in! This post isn’t sponsored by Boots btw, I just love all their great deals when it comes to Summer time!
