Bella & Bear 'The Pluckers' Tweezer Set Review*

So if you remember back in July I got a Bella & Bear Make up bag to try as part of a deal they were offering. I will link that post HERE.Well I am back again with another Bella & Bear related review, this time on their tweezer set. Now before I begin I wanna state that Bella & Bear were nice enough to send this product to me. However this review is completely and 100% honest and in my own words. The best thing is these guys arrived a day early and right when my eyebrows started to need some attention.

So let's start with the packaging. If you have ever brought anything from this brand then you already know that there packaging is super cute. It is a vintage rose design which is just super cute!! Now it all came in a little box with a window so you can see what is inside. Inside as well as three pairs of tweezers is a cute carry case, this makes it perfect to put inside your handbag or your make up bag. Now it comes with 3 pairs of tweezers straight, slanted and pointed. The straight ones are perfect for hair removal on larger areas. The slanted are for precision work and great for shaping and grooming. While the pointed hectare for really fine, small or ingrown hairs. Now don't worry if you don't remember this because it is all written on the back of the box that the tweezers come in.

So as I mentioned earlier these arrived just when my brows were needing my full attention so obviously these got put straight to work. I have to say that these are amazing not once did I have to try and grab a hair again (which I was doing with my old tweezers). These have a great grip and were perfect for all aspects of doing my brows. For tidying them up, those tiny hairs and giving my brows some shape.

So if your are looking for some really great tweezers you need to check these out! Oh and if Bella and Bear weren't already amazing they have kindly given me a discount code to share with you guys! This code will give you 20%  off when buying on Amazon and it doesn't stop until 31st December 2015. All you have to do is use the code Emma1066. How awesome is that? Imagine how many great at product you can get.

Let me know in the comments what you think of these Tweezers and what other Bella & Bear products you think I should try.

Until Next Time

The Love/Hate Tag

I was recently tagged by the oh so amazing Emma  of Peace Love Vintage to complete the Love/ Hate Tag. After reading her post I knew I had to do this for you guys. Oh and if you haven't seen her blog then you really need to check that out. It is amazing and you won't regret checking it out!

The Rules

Simply list 10 things which you love and 10 things which you hate- Nominate 10 blogger friends to complete the tag next!

Ten Things I Love ( In no Particular Order)

1. My Amazing Friends. The people who keep me sane and don't mind when I act a little bit crazy!
2. Audrey Hepburn. An amazing actress and a beautiful person inside and out. She was an actress, worked for UNICEF and did all this with a child hood that was very much different to what I knew.
3. Christmas. The Season of giving. A season about being with loved ones with awesome movies and food. Need I say more.
4. Reading. I love getting lost in a book and escaping my own world for a little bit. I love the way an Author can make you feel what the character is feeling.
5.Travelling. I have been to a few places in Europe but I would love the explore the rest of the world and see the different cultures.
6. Nail Polish. I love all the different colours, effects and obviously all that nail art! Nails can change a look.
7.Baking. I love to bake sweet treats for my family and friends. I love trying new recipes.  I love turning flour, sugar, butter and eggs into a cake, that is so much more yummy!
8. Vintage. I love the vintage styled hair, makeup, clothes and the way things were. A time when everyone was looking for love.
9. Baths. What other way is there to spend a relaxing evening in a Bath. Especially with candles, music and a few bath bombs.
10. My Movie Collection. I love all the movies I own. From Disney to Superhero. Harry Potter to Twilight. Cartoon to Musical. Its a world where anything is possible. Where Magic is around the Corner and Superhero's save the day.

Ten Things I Hate (In no particular order)

1.Bullies. It is simple in my mind. If you don't like someone, then don't go near them. There is no excuse for tearing someone down. At the end of the day it doesn't solve anything.
2. Animal Cruelty. I see absolutely no purpose in harming poor defenceless creatures. All pets and animals want to do is live their lives. When it comes to pets, they want to be loved and taken care of just like everyone else.
3. Cruelty to Children. It turns my stomach that someone could hurt an innocent child.
4. Saying Goodbye. Whether its at the end of life or someone is going away. Goodbye is always hard because no one wants to let someone go.
5.Football. I Just don't like it.]
6. Feeling invisible. It's not a great feeling, especially if you put effort in with people.
7. Fruit. I only eat raisins because they are the only thing that doesn't make me feel ill.
8. Vegetables. Potatoes is it for me. The rest even the smell makes me feel sick.
9. Societies view on Beauty. Magazines full of size 8 and under. Making everyone above a size 16 feel like they need to lose weight to be accepted or loved. Or to feel beautiful.
10. Negativity. Ironic I know. But there is no need for it.

So the bloggers I nominate are:

3. Tegan
7. Lisa

Oh and I nominate all you my lovely readers. Let me know what things you love and hate in the comments. Don't forget to let me know if you do this tag so I can read what you wrote.

Glossybox July 2015

So for the past couple of months I have been subscribed to Glossybox. I never know whether to do a post about them as I don't if you are guys are interested. But this month is a collectors edition Viva La France and as soon as my box arrived I knew I wanted to put it up on this blog for you guys. 
 The packaging of the box is simply gorgeous and has Madmosielle Glossy as well as other France land marks on the box. In keeping with the theme all on the packaging on the inside of the box is blue white and red. Super cute!

 Now the first thing you see once you have opened all the packaging and removed the information cards. (am I the only one who likes to read this after I have looked inside?) There is a see through travel pouch with none other than Mademoiselle Glossy blowing you a kiss! 
Now the first thing I pulled out of the pouch is this Teoxane Cosmeceuticals perfect skin refiner. Now I don't know about you guys but this sounds kind of fancy. According to the info card this product helps resurface the skin and reduce irritation using the calming ingredients. 

The next thing I pulled out was a cute little pink box. So obviously I kind of liked it already. I liked this one even more when I realised it was a perfume sample. Now I don't know about you guys but I LOVE perfume samples. This sample is Yves Rocher Comme Unr Evidence. I have to say that the card describes the scent as 'French musky floral scent which is light feminine and airy.' Perfect way to describe this scent and smells amazing. What I think made it even more special is that the packaging is simple and it is a glass bottle!

The next thing I pull out of the pouch is Noxidoxi enhancing serum base. I don't know about you guys but just the word serum makes me think something is fancy but that is likely to just be me. Anyway according to the information card this serum 'hydrates the skins surface as well as the deeper layers, while a cocktail on anti oxidants and anti inflammatories protect the skin'. This sounds like an amazing product and I can't wait to test it out! 

So the final product I pulled out of the pouch is a Lollipops lip balm Delicieuse. If that last word mean delicious than they are kind of right this product has a gorgeous vanilla smell, it has pink packaging with little lollipops and cupcakes over it. According to the information card this lip balm is loaded with antioxidants, vitamin E and it will protect your lips from UV damage. Yay multi product. 

So that's my Glossybox, if you would like a review on any of these products let me know in the comments. Between us I know really want to go and visit France and find some more French products.

Let me know in the comments if you liked this unboxing. Also let me know what else you want to see on this blog.

Until Next Time

Skincare Haul + a few extras

Hey Guys,

So recently I realised I needed some new face products and after a little thinking I realised that I wanted to try out more of the B. skincare range at Superdrugs. You see I have used a whole container of the Micellar water and had loved every second of using it. So this obviously meant a trip to Superdrugs especially when I learnt that selected products from the range were half price. Though if you read my last Superdrug haul you will know that I am one of those girls who can't go into this shop without coming out with products I hadn't been planning to buy. Let me tell you that this time was no exception!

So as you can see from the above picture there isn't just skin care. The first extra I picked up was some shaving gel. Now I am currently using a Dove body wash when I shave however this lovely one from Gillette was half price. It was even cheaper than Superdrugs own brand. I had a some bottle of this one before and did really like it. So obviously seeing the full size product at a good price. There really is no question about why that this particular product ended up in my basket.

So the first piece of Skincare I picked up was the B. Revealed Glycolic Cleansing Peel. Now I will admit that cleansing peel makes me wary of this product but at closer look at the directions I see that it is similar to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, which I am currently using a sample size of. Now I haven't managed to try this product out yet so I can only say it sounds like the Liz Earle simply by how you use the product. The product states that it has a gentle and effective exfoliating action, that makes the skin look and feel softer and smoother from the first use. Let's face it who doesn't want soft and smooth skin.

The next skincare product I purchased was actually a repurchase as it was the Micellar water that I fell in love with. I can honestly say that when I use this my skin really feels clean after wards, plus it removes any lingering make up. The product says that its is a quick and easy 3 in 1 cleanser that dissolves impurities in a single sweep, with no water required. Now I'll admit that this is my number one lazy product. I love using this on a lazy day as it will cleanse my skin and I can just put on my moisturiser on afterwards.

Another multi purpose product is the cleansing wipes, I haven't tried these but love to use wipes at night before moisturising and jumping into bed. Now these wipes cleanse, tone, hydrate and condition the skin, which is brilliant and one of those lazy products. Something I love already love about this product is that it has a very nice plastic top. Which means there is no fiddling with that little thin piece of plastic to make sure your wipes don't dry out. This and those four things means this product already gets a thumbs up before I even have the chance to try them!

Something you guys don't know is that I am a fan of eye creams. I love them as I always see it as something indulgent to use. So I feel like I'm pampering myself when I do use them. So naturally I wanted to try out the one offered up in this range.  This eye cream helps to refresh tired looking eyes by firming and smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lets face it, its never too early to try and fight those signs of aging. Plus anything that makes me look more awake is a bonus in my book.

Now I picked up this cream as I am a big fan of BB creams but have never tried any CC creams, so when I saw that this range had a CC Cream that was in this offer. It went straight into my basket.  The best bit about this is that it has built in SPF. Now if anyone from England is reading this they probably think I am crazy right now because in England and down here in Southampton sunshine is few and far between. We tend to go a bit crazy when it does turn up and yes we are the typical moan about not having any sunshine and then as soon as we get it, we moan about it being too hot. Anyway back to this haul. The reason I like having the SPF in this is that it means that I know my face is covered if and when the sun decides to show its face.

Now I am a big fan of cleansers even though I wouldn't call them a lazy product. I love a cleanser as I use them at the end of my shower routine and they always make my skin feel well clean. This one from B is called the melting gel cleanser, which I must admit made me curious more than anything. Reading the back of this product makes me even more curious as it looks like this has three phases. The first phase is a gel that melts to into an effective deep cleansing oil. Now this oil is gentle enough to remove eye makeup. The oil then washes off as a milky toner leaving skin soft and supple. YAY a multi use product as the end of this sounds a lot like cleansing oil that I currently use to take my make up off.

Now I am a big fan of extra moisturising night creams as I have some very dry patches on my face so I like to use a very moisturising product before bed so it can work will I sleep.  Now this B range have a B nourished night serum, so obviously this already sounds like a product I need in my life. Come to think of it, that could be why it ended up in my basket. The description just cements what I need out of this product. The description on the front says ' Wake up to soft replenished complexion with the ultimate beauty sleep for your skin'.

Now like the last time I went to Superdrugs, this trip was no exception even when I steer clear of the make up I always walk out with at least one product in my bag. This time I ended up with three. All of them were from the brand Make Up Academy or MUA for short. Now I do know this brand, they are pretty cheap but still good products. The first two things I picked up was two of their new Sweet Sheen Lip balms. I assume these are new anyway, I haven't seen them before so they are new to me anyway. I got two colours one is the 'Peach Dream' which is an peach type colour and I have been loving Peach coloured lip products this summer. So obviously had to have this one. The second one I got is called 'Pink Lilly' isn't that just a cute name. Now this one is baby pink in colour and just adorable. The best part was that these were only £2 each!

Now the final MUA lip product that found its way into my basket is a lip gloss from the MUA Luxe range. The lip gloss is part of a range called Whipped Velvet that just sounded kind of luxurious to me. I got the colour 'Rococo' that kind of reminds me of a TV program that I used to love called Rocco's Modern Life. Anyway back to the lip gloss it is a very cute kind of bright baby pink colour. I did notice that when I swatched it on my hand next to the balm it was more intense in colour. The best part of this lip gloss is the price of only £3.

Left to Right: Pink Lilly, Peach Dream & Rococo.

Now it wasn't until I was writing this that I realised that all the B skincare products had the little bunny on them to show that they were made Cruelty free. Which I kind of love. Now the most I paid for one of these B skincare Products was just over £5. So I would suggest that buy a few at a time. I mean that's what I did, I'm planning to go back and get a day time moisturiser and see if they have anything for spots.

Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you thought of them. Better yet let me know in the comments what brand beauty you are currently using.
Until Next Time

Bella & Bear Make Up bag Review

Hey Guys,

Welcome back. Today I have a make up bag I wanted to review. I have never done this type of review before so please bare with me. So I'm going to start at the very beginning, well kind of. So this is all to do with the company Bella & Bear. I will put the link to there blog here if you want to find out more.

This all started when I got an email from the company Bella & Bear. I had recently signed up for their newsletter so I assume this was how they got my email.  Now I got this email after work when it was sent about 8 am that morning. I had no Wi-Fi connection until then, which is why it took about eight hours for it to come through. Now this email was stating that Bella & Bear were launching a brand new make up bag and the first 10 or 15 people who replied to the email would get a code where all they had to do was pay for packaging. Now I replied but didn't get my hopes up because as I already mentioned there had been 8 hours since this email had even been sent so what were the chances that there was even going to be some left. I don't know if I got lucky or if Bella & Bear is a big secret to most people but oh well.

Shipping really didn't take long. I think it was less than a week! So that was brilliant. The best thing was it arrived in time for me to use it. I recently stayed at my Dad's house for a week so it was the perfect time to try this baby out. It was packaged in a gorgeous box which has the signature blue and rose vintage theme covering it. The bag is coloured the same way!

As you can see from the above pictures the bag opens up to show two sides, with a handy hook so you can hang it up. Though what you cant see in the pictures is the super cute Heart shaped zip. Which I love! Anyway back to the bag. Now the picture may look like the bag is small and I will admit that when I first saw this bag I did think great another bag where I'm going to need multiple bags for my toiletries which is no fun. Though I was delightfully surprised when this bag fit all my toiletries in it for the week.  So just to give you an idea of how much this bag fit in I'm going to list what I put in there with a little room to spare:

Shampoo & Conditioner
Shower Gel
Flannel/ Muslin Cloth
Cleansing Oil
Face Cleanser
2x eye cream
Lip balm
Face Wipes
Body Lotion
Tube of Face Mask
Tea Tree Oil
Body Scrub

So from that list I think is safe to say this bag fits a lot of products! It is really one of those don't judge a book by it's cover type of product! So I completely recommend going out and getting this bag which can be found on Amazon! It's safe to say this will absolutely be the first thing that gets packed in my future.

Let me know if you have heard of Bella and Bear and what you think about their products in the comments below. Also let me know if there is any products that you think I should try out!
Until Next Time.

Superdrugs Haul

Hey Guys,
So welcome back, so in typical female spirit I took a trip to Superdrugs the other day to pick up some I love products. If you read my Getting ready for summer post then you will know that I am absolutely in LOVE with the raspberry and blackberry products, if not check it out here. So obviously when I saw that they were half price I had to take advantage of this awesome offer! So in typical me fashion I went in for three products and came out with eight! So I decided to make a Haul post out of this little miracle. So let's get started!

So the first thing I picked up was one of the items I wanted to get is the I love Raspberry and Blackberry bubble bath and shower crème. Now I wanted this because I was already in love with the scent and was using my body scrub like crazy. I figured as I already have the body butter if I got this I could really layer that smell. Which is obviously a genius idea as this is completely a summer scent for me.

The next thing I picked up was another one I wanted to get. It was a brand new bottle of the body scrub as I was getting through my current one quite quickly. I love using this scrub before I shave or before using my body wash as it really makes my skin smooth. Also as it kind of foams up a little bit so you can totally use it by itself! BONUS!

I then picked up another of the body spritzer's as I'm already half done with my current one and I am slightly obsessed with it.  This was the third product that I actually wanted to get and with the offer on ALL of these products ended up being less than £2 each! Which is steal because they are awesome.

So this is where my impulse buying started! I didn't even realise this product was available but apparently the I love range has hand cream as well. I immediately thought that it was now possibly for me to moisturise my hands will still layering my scent. Well that and I kind of love hand cream and having soft hands!

So I don't know how it is possible to go into Superdrugs or any place they sell make up with out me having a look if not purchasing something. This time I had a look at a brand I haven't used at all. But I knew I wanted some kind of cream blush to use during the summer. Though we don't get much of one in England. Anyway I came across the brand NYC. I found this lovely blush in the colour 'Soho Pink'.  It is just this really cute colour which gives this very natural looking flush on your cheeks. So perfect!

So I kind of have a thing for lip products. I love trying new colours and seeing which colours suit me. So when I came across some in the NYC brand for £2 or less. My eyes must have brightened. Plus I'm always on the search for the perfect nude and the perfect nude pink colour. I ended up picking up three colours, again they were a bargain. The first one is 'Creamy Mauve' and to be honest I picked this up because I liked the name though it is a very pinkie colour. The next one I picked up is called 'Snowcone' which is this super cute baby pink colour! The last one I picked up is called 'Modern Love' which is a cute brighter pink colour.

Left to Right: Soho Pink, Creamy Mauve, Snowcone and Modern Love.

Let me know if you have tried any products from the NYC brand and what you think? Have you found any I love scents that are perfect for summer? Have you ever gone into Superdrugs and came out with more than you wanted? Let me know in the comments along with anything you want to see on this blog!

Review- Jurassic World

Hey Guys,

Welcome back. So I haven't done a review in a while and decided since I had planned to see Jurassic World that has only recently come out in the UK. I thought it's a sign this film just has to be reviewed. Now I'm hoping that all of you reading this have seen the Jurassic Park Trilogy. If not why are you reading this blog when you could be watching those films?
In all seriousness I did love the first three films, even if they scared me when I was a kid. I soon grew to love them even if I did end up having a dinosaur related dreams that night. Anyway I was super excited when I found out they were making a Fourth. So obviously I had to see it! Lets start with some facts, this movie was directed by Colin Trevorrow. Now obviously it was a big task to take on when two of the previous trilogy where directed by none other than Steven Spielberg, though Mr Spielberg was one of the producers for this film. The film has a running time 2 hours and 4 minute, yeah I know kind of a random length but oh well.

Now lets talk cast. The cast line up includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Judy Greer, Irrfan Khan, Vincent D'Onofrio, Nick Robinson, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and BD Wong. Now I will admit that I haven't heard of some these. I know one of them was in New Girl, one of them was in the original Jurassic Park and another was a in Guardians of the Galaxy. I'll let you guys figure out who was in what.

Now the plot of this film is as follows 'Twenty Two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park. Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfil a corporate mandate, a new attraction is called to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly.' Now from this and the trailers that have been seen we can all guess what is going to happen in the movie. I  must be honest and truthful and say at some points like the other Jurassic Movies it does get to a point where you think 'I know what is going to happen'. However as we have found from the last movies Jurassic seems to surprise us at the end. At least this one surprised me. I really did enjoy this film and noticed that in the cinema there were lots of guys and girls going to see this. Parents I will let you figure out if you want your kids to see this movie. At the end of the day it is rated PG, even if there is big old Dinosaurs killing things all the way through. I'll also let you guys into a little secret, this movie made me jump a few times, but no Dinosaur related for this blogger.. yet. 

Ok so if you have followed my blog and seen my previous film reviews you have probably seen that I like to put in something especially for my female readers. The film hunk of the week and this review will not be any different. We can all probably guess who will win this. But drum roll please the winner is......... CHRIST PRATT. Big shocker there I know but lets face it, he is a hunk. I thought he was gorgeous in Guardians of the galaxy but chuck him in a dinosaur movie and somehow he gets hotter! This gun wielding man was amazing in this role.

Now before I leave you to the rest of your day I just want to share a little bit of information that I found out recently. It is said that our film hunk Chris Pratt has signed on to do the Jurassic World sequel. Now I don't know how true this is. The film like the other three ended in a way that meant it could be the end or there could be another one. So I will leave you with that thought.

Until Next Time

Getting Ready For Summer

Hey guys,
Since the season has suddenly turned into summer I thought I would share how I get my body ready for summer. Now before I begin I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with summer. I love the season but hate the preparation and all the shaving that seems to go along with the season.  Let's be real now girls, in summer you have to shave those legs because they are out on show! Anyone enough about this lets get going on the actual blog! 

1. Exfoliating!
Not only does exfoliating get rid of dead skin but it also reduces the chances of ingrown hairs, bonus! I have also found that exfoliating helps give me a closer shave, which is brilliant! Let's face it a closer shave means the hair will take longer to grow back which again is a huge bonus! 
Now don't go thinking you have to go out and buy some body scrub to complete this step or even make one. No a body puff with normal shower gel also works for this step. When I really want to pamper my body I will use both but just one will usually do the trick! 

So these are the products that I love to use when exfoliating! The scrub is from Superdrug's and I am completely in love with the scent. It isn't a harsh scrub which is brilliant but it works wonders when you use it on your body. Especially since if you add some water you can also get a little lather going. This makes it so much easier when applying it to your skin. The brand has actually called this scrub a shower smoothie but I still love it! If you are interested in this product the link is here.
The body puff can be brought anywhere really. I got this one in a Dove gift set in the Christmas Sales. These can be brought at any drug store really. I will pop a link to the Superdrug's website where you can purchase on of these here.

2. Shaving!
So this next part is probably very obvious to you guys but it is essential in the summer and that's shaving. I'm not talking down there, get your minds out the gutter.  I'm talking about the legs and the underarms. I'm not ashamed to say that I get hairy legs and underarms. Shocker there! Anyway with summer comes shorts and sleeveless tops! Which means the areas that are normally hidden won't be.

Now I'm going to put my hand up and say that I find shaving an absolute chore. I hate it but its a necessity. I will point out right now that in the winter when my legs are hidden by trousers and jeans, I will put off shaving for as long as I can. But like I have already said summer I lose that excuse so what I like to do is shave once a week, which I can usually get away with. So on a Sunday Pamper night I will do my shaving and pray that my leg hair doesn't grow back quickly!

I have two razors that I like to use at the moment. The first one is the Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk, which is pictured above. I actually got this razor in my February Glossy box. I have loved the shape of the razor as it seems to sit perfectly in my hand when I use it.  I also have noticed that the band around the 5 blades does mean I don't get any irritation, which is brilliant. Now obviously I will use shaving gel when I use this razor cause no one wants a shaving rash. Let's face it you only make that mistake once. Now I'm not really picky when it comes to my shaving gel but the one I have recently emptied is the Olay and Venus. If you are interested in this razor you can get it here. Alternatively if you are interested in the Shaving gel you can get it here. I love using these product during my Sunday Pamper Shower.

Now the second razor I like to use is the one I use when I am feeling lazy and my leg hair decides to grow quicker than I wish it would. The above pictured razor is the Gillette Venus & Olay razor. This is the perfect razor for when a girl is feeling particularly lazy. The reason this razor is perfect for that is because this razor comes with Olay's moisture bars both above and below the blades. For those who don't know what this means, it basically means that these bars make shaving gel redundant. The bars will not only moisturise your skin after you have shaved but before as well. The blades make this the perfect razor for travelling and a quick mid week touch up. Not using shaving gel means, it will shave a little time off when shaving those legs. This razor does leave my legs and underarms feeling really smooth. If you are interested in this product you can get it here.

3. Moisturise
Now the next step is something every girl is probably familiar with but it is still essential. Not only does moisturising make your body feel nice and soft it also helps to restore moisture in the skin. Plus I don't know about you guys but I always feel amazing after I have moisturised and have silky smooth skin. Now I don't tend to stick to the same moisturiser as I do like to mix things up a bit. Though I do love a moisturiser that says it has long lasting affects and yes this is going back to me being lazy. It also comes down to the fact that I don't have time every morning to moisturise my body before I head off to work. So a long lasting one works really well especially since it means if I don't have time to moisturise one day I know I am covered. Kind of anyway.

Lately I have been using this moisturiser from Nivea. It is there irresistibly smooth body lotion and I do like it. It says it is long lasting and I do believe it is telling the truth. I have lathered this on before bed and my skin is still feeling smooth in the morning and when I finish work. Which is brilliant. I love putting body lotion on straight after a shower. I always feel like it works better, I don't know if this is true but I like to think it works better. Plus I don't know if it is just me but I love running my hand over smooth skin and smooth legs in the summer is essential. Especially if you get out in the sun that's going to de hydrate you. So the best way I think to combat this is body lotion. If you are interested in this moisturiser you can get it here.

4. Foot Care
Now you can completely ignore this step if you have super smooth feet and don't suffer from dry heels, you can also be safe in the knowledge that I am jealous of you right now. I happen to be one of the people who suffer with dry, cracked heels and let's face it they don't exactly look attractive in a cute pair of flip flops! They don't look attractive in any shoes except trainers cause they are all hidden. So I like to make sure to get my feet ready for summer where they will probably spend most of the season in flip flops or sandals. There has been one product which I have fallen in love with.

From the above picture above you can probably guess that the product I am in love with is the Soap & Glory Heel Genius. Now if you suffer from dry heels or dry feet I seriously recommend you get this product. Now this is literally like a miracle product. All you have to do is massage this into your feet before bed and I like to put on moisturising socks on. Then you get some beauty sleep and let the cream do it's thing. I saw a difference after one night. My feet looked less dry and more summer ready. The best bit about this cream is that you don't even have to remember to put this on every night, you can just put it on when you remember. I try for every other night but usually fail. I do like to make sure that I put it on twice a week! If you are interested in this product you can get it here.

5. Hydrate!
Now my final step when it comes to getting ready for summer is keeping hydrated. We don't get much sunshine in Southampton but I still like to try and up my intake of water. Personally I have seen that when I drink more water I have less dry skin. I don't know if upping your water intake actually helps you with dry skin, but I have found it helps me with mine. Now I prefer cold water , to room temperature water and this really is a personal preference so I will also drink a bottle of water fill it up with tap water and then place it in the fridge for a couple of hours until it is nice and cold again. I find this helps with upping my intake! Now I do tend to use plastic bottles but if you feel like a sports bottle works better for you then do that.

Ok so that just about finishes this blog post! Let me know how you get ready for summer. Don't forget that if you want to see anything here to let me know in the comments or on social media.
Until Next Time.
