LUSH Birthday Haul

It has been ages since I made the trip to LUSH but today it is my Daughter’s 6th Birthday and as she is as huge a LUSH fan as her mummy I promised that I would treat her to some bath bombs and bubble bars.

Dermasalve Review

Dermasalve is a range of products specifically designed bring relief to dry, flakey and itchy skin and to treat troublesome skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis.

Latest In Beauty Build Your Own Box

I had resisted placing an order for quite some time but when I saw the latest Build Your Own Box products a number of them caught my eye so I decided to take the plunge. I opted for the £18 ‘Beauty Guru’ box which allows you to choose 9 items. This works out at only £2 per item, which considering there are a number of full sized products to select from means it’s great value.
