Over the past few years I have come to realise that my very basic beauty routine needs a bit of an over haul as youth is no longer on my side.
I’ve always been a soap and water girl but as I’ve got older I have noticed that my skin has become a lot drier and now needs a little more tlc.
One issue though as my lack of time and to be honest want to spend hours pampering myself.
Having such a large family means that I need to be in and out of the bathroom at breakneck speed and any products that save time are a winner in my book.
This was in fact the first thing that appealed to me when I was asked to try out the Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle.
The rich moisturising cream that is infused with apricot and avocado oil needs to be applied onto wet skin straight after your shower. Once applied you simply towel dry yourself and get ready as normal.
One of the things that has always put me off of body moisturisers is the sticky feeling you can get once its applied, I was pleasantly surprised that this moisturiser leaves not tacky residue and is absorbed into the skin really quickly. Due to the way the cream is applied it is in fact the best was to keep moisture locked into the skin.
The real selling point for me though was the familiar Sanctuary Spa fragrance that lingered on my skin all day and complimented their other products beautifully.
I would highly recommend this product to anyone that wants a deep moisturising product that is quick and easy to apply whilst still offering a good level of fragrance.
As some of you know blogging is a new thing to me. I have only been doing it for the past couple of months and I am falling I love with my blog and all the fantastic things that come with being a blogger more than I ever thought I would.
I have had a love for social media for many years and was always putting up posts of my family and everything we get up to. I was getting several emails a day from friends asking advice on days out and things to do with little ones; so with a push from my lovely sister my journey has begun and I’m loving every minute of it.
One of the most refreshing things I have found about blogging is the fantastic people you meet online. I have been chatting on Twitter to the lovely Buggiesandbikes.net about my larger than life family and her experiences as a shop owner and childminder for the past fourteen years. We can relate to the struggles of mealtimes and clearing up!!
Their fabulously different toy shop in East London offers a diverse range of toys, clothes and toiletries to name but a few. I am planning a trip there in next few weeks whilst visiting the Museum Of Childhood. I can then take everything in first hand and say a big thank you for the lovely handcream gift that popped through my front door the other day.
I was so happy when the little brown parcel hit the doormat. I felt like a little kid on their birthday! The joy of opening it was handed over to number four as he was tugging at my top pleading to open it. Once open the wonderful lavender smell hit me and once applied to my hands the fragrance lasted for hours.
We live nearby some beautiful lavender fields and when my daugher came in from school the scent caught her and she asked if I had been there that day!
I was so impressed with the handcream I had a look on soothe-me.com and found they had an extensive range of fabulous products that would be great for all the family. They have a section dedicated to eczema suffers; so with my husband and two youngest boys being suffers I will most certainly be purchasing some products to try out on them.
I’m at the start of this exciting journey and have already made some lovely online friends and tried some beautiful products. I’m looking forward to each day and what it brings.
