Lush lip scrub tip & Vitamin E Shimmer Body Lotion

Whilst in the shower last night I decided to use my new Lush bubblegum lip scrub (god I LOVE the smell and taste of this little product!) My face was feeling particularly dry and I had ran out of exfoliator... I looked on the ingredients of the lip scrub, it was pretty much all natural stuff so I thought "why not try it on my face?"... I took the tiniest amount and rubbed it all over my face (minus the eye area of course), then I rinsed off and patted dry. My face was really smooth! I was waiting for some sort of redness or itching to kick in but nothing. I moisturised and went to bed. This morning my face was lovely and soft, all the dry bits around my nose and T-zone were gone. So Lush's lip scrub isn't just for the lips, its handy for the face too :-) another good reason for me to re-purchase when I run out! If you give it a try, let me know!


Bubblegum lip scrub is available here for £4.95 (for 25 grams)

Superdrugs' Vitamin E Shimmer Body Lotion-

I posted about Superdrugs' Vitamin E Shimmer Lotion for the face awhile ago (see post here) and as I loved it so much I decided to purchase the one for the body too. 

I absolutely LOVE this body lotion. It has such a lovely golden shimmer to it and makes your skin glow. It smells amazing too, like The Body Shops' Shea Butter.
It looks gorgeous applied on the collarbones and chest.
I love the fact it sinks into the skin well without leaving a sticky or greasy feeling afterwards, and my skin feels lovely and soft.
For £2.99 this is a bargain and I shall definitely repurchase when I run out.

Vitamin E Shimmer Body lotion is available here for £2.99 ( for 150ml)

  9. Hey, thanks for your comment. This lush scrub is one of my favoruites too. I use it every other day.

    And about what you said about your weak nails.. I have a tip if you bite them.. every time you feel the urge.. take some hand cream or nail oil and start massaging your cuticles.. Might sound out but it got me to stop.. its good for your nails.. and it distracts u.. xx
