New Skincare Additions from Embryolisse

After trying the cult favourite, Embryolisse's Lait Creme Concentrate, a few months ago (blog post here) I've been rather curious about what else this French Skincare brand has to offer. The lovely ladies at Sparkle PR were actually kind enough to send over two more Embryolisse products and I've been putting them thoroughly to the test over the past few months: so much so that I've almost used them both up completely! I was so excited when I saw Embryolisse's Micellar Lotion* arrive on my doorstep and after recently trying Garnier's Micellar Water I couldn't wait to compare the two and see if there really is a difference between drugstore and higher end Micellar Waters. The other product is the rather unusual Embryolisse Artist Secret Radiant Eye*, also known to the French as Secret de Maquilleurs, or the 'Make-up Artist's Secret',which is a Cooling Gel Stick that claims to make you look and feel wide awake instantly.

My Current Bath Time Pamper Routine

The bathtub is my happy place. No matter how low I'm feeling, there's nothing a bubble bath can't fix. Sunday evenings are usually the nights I dedicate to pampering but if I can I try to slip in an extra little pampering session mid-week! After running a hot bath, lighting a few candles and grabbing a book or magazine, I always rummage around my beauty cabinet and pick out a couple of my favourite beauty products to help me unwind.

The products I take with me into the bath usually change rather frequently but I've gathered a couple of favourites over the Christmas period and I've been sticking to the same routine for the past few weeks now. With the exception of the Lush Bath Bomb, which changes with every bath of course (I have a ridiculously huge pile from the Boxing Day sales to get through!), I've been really enjoying using the same combination of products to wash, scrub and moisturise all my worries away!

Clinique Bonus Time 2016 with Debenhams

Clinique Debenhams
There's nothing more satisfying than receiving free gifts with a purchase and Clinique's Bonus Time* Events are something I get excited about each and every year. Just in time for Valentine's Day (hint hint) Debenhams are currently hosting their Bonus Time Event in stores from February 4th - 21st 2016. So, if you were thinking about treating yourself or a loved one to some new Clinique goodies or you simply need to stock up on some essentials, Bonus Time is perfect time to do it - it really is the best way to sample some of the brand's most popular products. With Spring approaching, the aptly named 'Pops of Colour' event features the most adorable makeup bag containing 6 makeup and skincare miniatures. To qualify for the free Bonus Time gift at Debenhams you need to buy two or more products from the brand (one being skincare or a foundation). My personal favourites include the Cheek Pop Blushes, the Lip Pop Colour + Primers and Clinique's Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm.

Lush | Jason & The Argan Oil Solid Shampoo Bar

Lush Solid Shampoo Bar
Lush's Solid Shampoo Bars are pretty weird aren't they? I've walked past these little shampoo bars for years whenever I've been in a Lush store, always curious but never curious enough to go ahead and purchase one. But when I spotted Jason and the Argan Oil, which is graced with my all-time favourite Lush scent Rose Jam, I couldn't resist any longer. And at £5.75 each, with the promise of up to 80 washes per bar, it's not too pricy either.
