& Other Stories Floral Memento Body Scrub and Souffle

I recently discovered & Other Stories products and have fallen in love with the Floral Memento bath and body range. The Floral Memento bath and body collection contain natural oils and waxes such as Meadowfoam Seed Oil which leaves your skin feeling super soft and moisturised. I love having one day a week which is fully dedicated to a full on pamper session and these two products fit perfectly into my pamper evenings. I have really been enjoying using the Floral Memento Body Scrub and the Floral Memento Body Souffle. These products smell amazing, they remind me of a summers day with soft flowery sweetness, they feature soft flowery notes of violets and peonies along with light musks and warm woods. Both of these products come in tub form and have a screw top lid which I really do prefer over a squeeze tube. If you like fresh summery scents you will absolutely love the Floral Memento collection.
Floral Memento Body Scrub £7 - This is a lovely sugar based scrub that polishes and scrubs away dead skin while leaving your skin feeling super silky smooth. I personally think this body scrub is much more exfoliating and much thicker than another other one I have used before. This has become my daily shower product I'm obsessed! I also really like to use the Floral Memento Body Scrub before tanning as I feel my tan applies so much more even after using this scrub. I love that it doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped, it's very gentle on the skin and leaves it super soft to touch. After I use the Floral Memento Body Scrub my skin and bathroom smells amazing! I then follow it with the Floral Memento Souffle.
Floral Memento Body Souffle £10 - This is a very light weight whipped body cream, it leaves my skin feeling super moisturised and so soft and silky to touch. I love using this now the weather is getting warmer, after sitting in the sun all day it's really important to moisturise your skin and the Floral Memento Body Souffle hydrates and gives your skin a smooth finish. I love that this cream sinks into my skin quite quickly and doesn't leave that greasy or sticky feeling.

I absolutely love the & Other Stories Floral Memento Body Scrub and Souffle and I can't wait to try more from this collection. I think they are amazing quality products for the price, they last a very long time and leave your skin feeling pampered and smelling divine.
Have you tried any other products from the Floral Memento collection?

Soap & Glory Glow All Out Luminizing Highlighting Powder

I've been a huge fan of Soap & Glory bath products for years now, I've tried a few of their skincare products but I would love to start trying out more from their makeup range. I recently purchased the Soap & Glory Glow All Out Luminizing Highlighting Powder (£11). I had been meaning to purchase a new highlighter for a while now and while shopping in Boots I spotted this and thought it was stunning, I swatched it on my hand and had to have it. Glow All Out is a radiance face powder that can be used to highlight areas of the face such as the cheekbones or it can even be used all over your face to give your skin a nice healthy glow. Like all Soap & Glory products the packaging is stunning, the compact it's self is made from plastic and is very sturdy, it has a cute little mirror inside which is perfect for touch ups on the go.
Glow All Out is such a gorgeous shell pink toned highlight, it has just the right amount of shimmer and looks stunning applied to the cheek bones. I love how natural looking this highlighter is, when I apply it to my face it gives my skin a natural subtle glow which is gorgeous. It's perfect for daytime wear as it's a very subtle natural highlighter. I apply it to my cheek bone and brow bone as I feel it really stands out and makes my eyes look bigger and more lifted. Glow All Out is very subtle but of course you can build the colour by layering it up, it also blends like a dream which is always great. I love how versatile this powder is and I would highly recommend the Soap & Glory Glow All Out Luminizing Powder to anyone that is looking for a natural highlighter.
What's your favourite Soap & Glory beauty product?

Summer Essentials

Summer, we've been waiting for you! Now that the weather is finally heating up out there with sunny skies and warm breezes, I've been changing out a few of my beauty products for a lighter coverage and more of a natural look. Here are a few of my summer essentials. Enjoy!
La Roche-Posay Serozinc: Serozinc is perfect for the summer time it feels amazing on the skin, once sprayed on my face it leaves my skin feeling very refreshed. This toner tightens my pores and it gives a nice cooling sensation while soothing the skin. I have actually done a blog post all about this so definitely go and check that out here.
Tangle Angel Cherub: Tangle teezers are my life saver. The Tangle Angel Cherub is designed to fit in your handbag which is perfect, I always find myself reaching for this throughout the day and it works amazingly at brushing away knots and tangles. I also love that this brush has anti static properties which prevents flyaway hairs which leaves my hair super smooth and silky.
Percy and Reed Volumizing No Oil Oil: This little gem is amazing, my hair is very long and lacks volume. This no oil oil is multi tasking it nourishes and repairs the hair while leaving it smooth and shiny while adding volume. This is perfect for summer as who doesn't want more volume.
Rayban Sunglasses: I'm in love with my Raybans and I don't wear any other sunglasses but these. I know Raybans are expensive but they're so worth it in my eyes. The quality of them is amazing, the tint really protects your eyes from the sun which is really important to me. I purchased these last year from the website Very and I can't seem to find them on any websites now so maybe they were a limited edition style I'm not too sure. I love the brown tint sunglasses and these are an everyday summer essential.
Barry M Sunset Nail Varnish (Peach For The Stars): I love love love the shade of this nail varnish I am obsessed with it. It's bright and colourful which is perfect for the summer. I love Barry M nail varnishes one coat is all you need and this will last for around 3 days.
Burt's Bees Pink Grapefruit Lip Balm: Lipbalms are an everyday essential, I love Burt's Bees lip balms they smell amazing and also contain vitamin C and E from the Pink Grapefruit oil. After a long day in the sun these lip balms really help to nourish, condition and soften my lips.
Soap and Glory Glow All Out Highlighter: The Soap and Glory Glow all Out highlighter is perfect for the summer it's peachy tint really stands out on my cheek bones and it looks super pretty and very natural.
Zoeva 105 Luxe Highlight Brush: I love Zoeva Brushes they're all super soft. I especially love the highlight brush it's the perfect size and shape for applying highlighter to your cheek bone. I love it!  
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation: Now that Summer is here I'm all for the light coverage natural look. Benefit hello flawless foundation is very lightweight but still gives enough coverage which out feeling super heavy on the skin which is exactly what I go for in these warmer months.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder: This is my go to favourite powder. I keep this in my handbag at all times so I can touch up my face throughout the day. I love that Rimmel stay matte powder doesn't cake on the face, it's perfect to fix that bit of shine throughout the day for a natural matte finish.
The DW Classy Sheffield Watch has become one of my most worn timepieces I absolutely love it, they're perfect for the daytime and evening wear. This is the perfect watch for the summer time with the classic look and the lightness of the Daniel Wellington watch, it is very simple to read and I like the fact that the face isn't so busy, it's simple yet chic and I feel it really completes an outfit and brings it all together.
