REVIEW – Lush Cosmetics – Tea Tree Toner Water

“Keep skin clear and refreshed. Tea tree is antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial, so can help keep away the bacteria that can cause spots. Grapefruit is rich in vitamins and is also lightly astringent on the skin, whilst juniper berry is antiseptic and helps keep skin clean and clear. Use any time of day to keep skin refreshed, or to remove traces of makeup or cleanser.” – Lush Website

Reasons why New Girl is the best show to watch in the bath…

New Girl is a US comedy about a woman who moves into a loft apartment with three single guys after breaking up with her boyfriend. Zooey Deschanel who plays Jess Day, takes a modern look at friendships, and romance, taking a very light hearted approach to everyday life and allowing us to feel carefree and somewhat positive after every watch.

Now here’s my confession. I watch New Girl in the…

What’s the bloody point in creating a blog in the first place?

What’s the bloody point in creating a blog in the first place?

I’m sitting on my bed right now and thinking to myself – ‘Would anyone actually read this, and furthermore, would anyone actually care?’ I have been blogging for years (started out on Tumblr) and every now and then I sit back and think ‘What’s the point? No one reads my stuff anyway!’ I am also guilty of scrolling down the dashboard and not reading every single post from different bloggers.

Latitude Review: Circa Waves

Latitude Review: Circa Waves

Liverpool quartet and hotly tipped band Circa Waves released an energetic indie-pop feel with the similarities of The Strokes and The Libertines.

Their clever lyrics were wrapped around loud distorted guitar riffs, hard-hitting drum solos and lively vocals – reliving the sound from the early noughties indie scene.

Latitude Review: Screaming singing and passion make duo Slaves a success

Latitude Review: Screaming singing and passion make duo Slaves a success

The young two-piece garage punk band turned a few heads on the Lake Stage with their heavy rock and angry lyrics.

Slaves are Isaac Holman, 22, on drums and vocals and Laurie Vincent, 20, on guitar. Holman attracted the crowd with his screaming singing and cockney accent which received a positive and rebellious response from the audience.

Torn between the two: Skint Student or Savvy Saver?

Torn between the two: Skint Student or Savvy Saver?

In brief: Do I go to Harlow College to grab a journalism diploma but earn no money for three months? OR do I continue working my full time waitress job and part time newspaper job to save more money and head off to Australia sooner?

I have a huge desire to travel (as do many 20 somethings), yet I also have the desire to become a successful journalist along the way. Don’t ask me what I want to…

Fancy a pamper? Here’s a review on LUSH COSMETICS Buffy exfoliating Body Bar.

So I’m the kind of person who forgets to moisturise daily and finds it a bit of a chore – so this is the IDEAL product to get it all done in one!

The quote for this product is “Buffs your backside and slays dead skin, leaving you angel soft” – and they couldn’t have described it better! This is exfoliation and moisturisation all in a single product.

When using Buffy, I held the bar and ran it across parts of the body that needed it the most, focusing on the backside, legs, back of arms and top of back. I put the bar down and started to slowly massage it all in, enjoying the scent of cocoa butter, almond and lavender as I pampered. It was extremely blissful.

The exfoliation was comforting, not too intense, and enough to really feel the dead skin being scrubbed away. I felt instant moisture as the oils stayed on the skin leaving it incredibly soft. The subtle scent remains on your body as you pat yourself dry.

I couldn’t stop running my hands along my arms and legs, amazed at how soft I felt! This sensation didn’t look or feel greasy, but it does feel like a moisture overdose, which is exactly what I needed.

I suffer from slight dry patches and a little eczema, so a lot of exfoliating products can sting if they are too rough or if they include string citrusy ingredients. However, Buffy Body Bar did not leave any redness or stinging sensation during use as it only contains the softest essential oils and butters, including ground rice. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who already have baby soft skin, it would be a pointless purchase! 

This will definitely be a regular buy on my LUSH shopping list!
