Manuka Doctor- Api Clear

For the last few months my skin has been very hormonal and suffering from breakouts left, right and centre.
Whether your used to breakouts or not, when it keeps happening it can begin to get annoying and most of all upsetting. I find my make up doesn't look as good on my face as pre breakouts and when the spots and bumps are painful it can get rather tedious.

So I have been on the hunt for a range to try that wasn't too expensive, that would help to combat my new found problem. I have always wanted to try the Dermalogica MediBac range, but I simply don't want to jump on the expensive bandwagon at the moment, especially not with a new university course looming.

I received an email a while back from Superdrug asking me would I like skin like Millie Mackintosh? Of course I would I thought! Who wouldn't want skin like Millie and also her wardrobe, bank balance and gorgeous dog Herby? (You may think knowing her dogs name is slightly stalkerish, but have a peek on Instagram and then you will understand! haha) Well anyway, back to the point. Yes I would love wonderful skin and this range was claiming to do it! 

Silly, you may think? Of course every products claims they are THE wonder product. THEY are going to work and you will never look back. Well we shall see...

The range is Manuka Doctor and the Api Clear selection in the range.

They also have Api Nourish and Api Revive, so if you don't suffer from problem skin then perhaps one of the other selections might appeal to you a little more. 
I have been using the face wash, lotion and serum everyday, for a week. I must admit My skin is a little calmer so I am going to keep on with it. I of course am not expecting it to work over night. Although, the range has won the Beauty Insider award so I am not expecting it to be completely rubbish and a waste of money.

I will keep you posted on the results and show you a before and after photograph...if I dare!!!

I bought 3 products from Superdrug With Prices ranging from £11.33-£3.99 as they have a 1/3 off at the moment!!

Have a see what Millie Says...

I will keep you updated!

Lots of Love 

OOTD- Smart Casual leopard


The gaps between blogging just lately is ridiculous so I do apologise.

Here is an outfit I wore to work recently and I love it!

Smart but casual and comfy! 

Leggings Topshop
Converse JD Sports
Blazer Ebay
Black vest River Island
Leopard Print sheer blouse
Neon Pink necklace New Look
I often style my converse with smart outfits just to bring them down a little and also they are so comfy!

Not very professional pictures I know but you get the general idea! I don't have a fancy camera or studio, I just have the camera on my phone and no doubt this is the way it will always stay!

Love always

Body Shop- Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I honeslty don't think there will be one reader who is not aware of The Body Shop Body Butter and if there is... listen carefully. You must try some!

For many years now I have been a lover of Body shop and their Body Butters. The smells and quality are to die for, just one thing holding me back, the price.

Sometimes it is hard to justify £13 for a 200ml body moisturiser when there are lots of good competitors out their in the supermarkets for a cheaper price.

Yet the sheer luxury of The Body Shop Butters is unbeatable and truely luxurious.

Now I have to say my all time favourite is the strawberry body butter and along with the vineyard peach I did purchase the strawberry one too. But enough about that and on to Vineyard Peach.

It smells exactly as you would expect... Peach. Funny that.

I like to think it smells of a peach yoghurt, with that creamy smell to it also.

The butter does take a while to sink into the skin but leaves a subtle sheen to the skin for hours.




JASON Lips Bee Healthier

I received this in a recent glossy box and I have to say I am in love with this balm.

It is a plain lip balm, no colourings, no fancy shimmers or glitters, just natural.

I apply this every morning and it smells divine. The only thing that I can liken the smell to is the smell of all butter mints! I love this smell however so if you don't, this product is probably not for you.

The texture is smooth on the lips and lasts well, leaving a subtle sheen to the lips, nothing to over powering.

A perfect balm for Winter parched lips.

Contains Aloe and Beeswax.


Here's the interesting bit...

Prevent Parched lips with this rich, natural combination of moisture-trapping Beeswax,Vitamin E, and Green Tea Extract.

Organic Aloe Vera Gel helps heal, soothe and protect chapped lips while Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil moisturise. Leaves lips tingly and soft with peppermint Oil.

Have you tried this lovely lip balm?
