Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato Collection

I wouldn't normally be excited by a new bath and body range from Zoella Beauty but the new Jelly and Gelato Collection got me so excited as soon as I took a look at the pretty pastel packaging. I mean, who on earth could possibly resist that? I definitely couldn't. As soon as the collection hit Superdrug stores in Mid July I decided to take a look around and see if anything took my fancy. Luckily a few things did and I happily departed with three products in tow.

Trying Palmer's Cocoa Butter Face Care

You may have heard of the brand Palmer's because of their notorious Cocoa Butter body care range. I absolutely loved it, the body lotion has served me well for years. Little did I know that they had a new and improved Cocoa Butter face care range, until recently. The range consists of seven products, the Ultra Gentle Cleansing Oil, Cleanser & Makeup Remover, Perfecting Facial Oil, Moisturising Day Cream, Night Cream, Exfoliating Facial Scrub and Enzyme Mask. They've pretty much covered every skincare product you'd possibly need in a skincare routine.

July Beauty Favourites

So, we are now in August. How crazy is that? So much has happened in the last couple of months, as you can imagine, as I'm now a mum of two beautiful boys. In case you're wondering, Harrison is doing so well(find out more in his one month update here). Even though I have been so busy I have surprisingly always found the time to do my makeup. There is nothing better than beating my face in the morning after a rough four hours of sleep with a nearly two month old baby. It makes me look so awake, even when I'm not feeling 100% myself and it instantly boosts my confidence. I think you'd be surprised just how much it lifts my spirits. When I was pregnant with Harrison I was just so lazy and rarely put on my makeup which in turn just made me feel really urgh, but ever since he's been born I've been wearing it pretty much everytime I've gone out.

The Garnier Pure Active Sensitive Skincare Range

A few months ago I was introduced to the new Pure Active Sensitive Skincare Range from Garnier. The range consists of a full skincare routine, the Anti-Blemish Soap-Free Gel Wash, Anti-Blemish Clarifying Tonic and the Anti-Blemish Moisturiser. I was unable to make use of the range at the time I received it as I was pregnant. I only avoided using the range up until after I had given birth as one of the ingredients within the products is salicylic acid and that's something that I wanted to avoid using during those nine months. Although it's considered safe to use in small amounts I wanted to avoid using anything that's considered harmful or harsh on my skin.

Of course in typical Lauren fashion I took like a fish to water when I arrived home from the hospital with Harrison and I got myself back into a skincare routine again. Those couple of days I spent in hospital did nothing for my skin. I stupidly forgot to pack my skincare so I didn't use anything but water. Not particularly great when you have acne-prone skin like me.
