2019, Bath, beauty

Blogtober was….

Going so well until yesterday. Yesterday was my first ever late shift in my new job so I had no excuses really as I was at home for a massive chunk of the day, although I did run some errands and wash my hair and time just slipped by. I’d meant to post on my break and ended up reading.

My reading has been so so and actually having proper breaks means I get some in which is good. There’s probably a number of half started posts I could have finished but needed something light as I have a banging headache and should be sleeping now….

So…

This is the Body Shops coffee face mask and oh my I probably needed this in my system today. It’s very similar to that of Lush’s cup of coffee which has been a favourite for a while.

So what can I say about this. If you don’t like coffee steer clear as it’s a very strong and distinctive smell of caffeine. Which works for me. It also makes my face feel soft and hydrated.

Now here’s for one of those awful pics of me.

Ok so there’s two terrifying pics of me. Excuse the state but this stuff is fab. It’s worth every penny.

I’m sorry yesterday there was no post I’m eager to add different content to the blog and I would love to spend one day of my week answering questions here on Hayley Reviews so hit me..

From books to beauty….

So today I decided to be bold and to try something new. Don’t fret I will never get rid of my books. I know I have been slack of late but all will be resumed – there will be more actual book reviews back here but today I turn to beauty.

Now I won’t ever call myself a beauty blogger. I’m far too lazy for that title and I don’t have many routines. What I will say is that if this post works there could be more of these…so watch this space. 

Anyone who knows me knows I love Lush I’m addicted to their gorgeousness, which means anyone who knows me knows I truly love Snow Fairy – a Lush product that always comes in time for Christmas. 

Because of that I try and stock up as much as I can and this year I will be attending the Boxing Day sale – as the past few years the online sale has been rather disappointing.

Last Sunday I met up with a very good friend who also shares the love of all things Lush. We met on Oxford Street where they have their concept store – to our delight when we entered there was wall to wall Christmas. It’s not even October….and SNOW FAIRY is back in so many new forms I was like 😳. I knew that I would definitely leave with SNOW FAIRY but what??? Seeing as there was so much choice.

I left with two Snow Fairy bath bombs as I knew my niece would want one and a Snow Fairy naked shower gel which is one of the other new forms. I was distracted by all the Snow Fairy goodness so it took me a while to decide and I have only tried the bath bomb which was just as good as I expected. The gel inside it made the bath slippery and smooth it’s made my skin feel clear and silky smooth. As the days get colder I really could do with having loads of this to keep my skin hydrated and smooth like in the months when the sun is shining. 

You can find the Christmas goodies Here there’s a number of Pumpkin based products that I’m itching to try. 

Today was my well needed day off I have had a beautifully chilled day, which has been productive as my ankle feels loads better. I have managed to catch up on some TV and have a Lush bath….whilst listening to a book….I finally sampled my Snow Fairy bath bomb – my niece used hers the other night and she truly loved the smell the look it created in the bath and how it made her skin feel and I have to agree with her on those points. 





As you can see I was trying to get differing pictures of Snow Fairy in action so during this bath I didn’t totally get the fizzing feeling as I wasn’t in the bath but I cannot wait to get more of these for those cold winter nights….

Now I would love to know what you think of my Lush based post and whether you would like to see product reviews like this from me again….
