Palmer’s Cocoa Butter – Firming Butter
I am now 25 weeks into my pregnancy and although my bump has been late in coming it has finally arrived! I have enough stretch marks from my previous pregnancies so I’m not daft and I know that I will more than likely get them again. However this cream has been amazing in keeping my tummy moisturised and I can report that I have no new warrior stripes. Plus the smell is absolutely yummy!!
L’oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Long Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
Oh my life this shampoo and conditioner!! I can safely say that it has saved my hair this pregnancy! My hair has took a right battering what with my severe sickness (Life Update here). This shampoo and conditioner has given it some decent life though! It’s made me feel so much better about myself. I have quite long hair and it being quite dry and brittle really got me down but now after using this it’s made it smooth and silky again!
The Body Shop Matte Clay Skin Clarifying Foundation
I’ve never tried a Body Shop Foundation before and I have been trying to make more of a conscious effort to use more Cruelty Free products. I’d heard such amazing things about this product from some of my favourite Youtubers so I decided to try it for myself and it’s safe to say I was not disappointed. It really does give amazing coverage and lasts all day. I don’t end up shiny and with my skin being so dry and angry at the moment this is actually a tonic!
St Tropez Gradual Tan Tinted Everyday Body Lotion
I’m always quite wary of tans. I hate that streaky, orange look that smells like digestives. But then I find that some gradual tans don’t really make much of a difference they are more like an illuminizer than a tanner and your daily shower cancels out any effects anyway! So when I got this as a sample in a magazine I was skeptical but trying to be open minded when I gave it a try. Safe to say I was pleasantly surprised. This gave me an even, natural glow and didn’t have a horrible smell or go streaky. It looked gorgeous in the recent sunshine we had too! So I went out and bought the full size of this and have love, love, loved it!!
Superdrug Vitamin C Invigorating Skin Booster
I love using this on my skin on top of my moisturiser. It gives my dull skin a nice, little pick me up and, as you’ve gathered I’m big on scent, the citrus smell is not over powering but so puts me in the mood for summer. I prefer to pat this in so I don’t put too much on and this gives a silky finish so it isn’t sticky and heavy on the face.
The Defiant Ones – Netflix
I love a good documentary and this one about how Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine came together and began Interscope Records and then went on to develop Beats with Apple. It features many different artists and big music industry players including P Diddy, Eminem, Gwen Stefani and Stevie Nicks to name only a few legends! I found this really interesting as it talked about the influences both had growing up, and how their careers went through highs and lows to get where they are today. I suggest anyone who loves music give this a watch. I binge watched this in an afternoon because I couldn’t wait for the next one!
These are some of the things I’ve been loving this month! Please leave a comment with some of the things you’ve been loving, including some new Netflix programmes for me to watch while I’m resting up with my bump!!
