A New Favourite Hand Cream From Lush

Handy Gurugu

Lush Handy Gurugu has been on my wishlist for a while now and I finally picked it up a couple of weeks ago. I have been using it every night before I go to bed and I love it.

I can get quite dry hands especially on the skin in between my knuckles and it can be really sore and tight sometimes. I'm always on the lookout for a decent hand cream that will stop my hands from being sore, so when I heard about Handy Gurugu I thought I would give it a go. It's a thick hand cream that sinks in really easily and quickly, which is a must for me as I hate to have greasy hands.

The cream is pale/mint green in colour and has a really smooth, creamy texture. It really nourishes my skin and makes my hands so soft. I like to apply a thick layer before I go to sleep and let it sink in overnight and when I wake up in the morning my hands are baby soft and don't feel dry or tight. I

A New Cleanser - Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel

I have seen so many bloggers rave about the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel but it was only last month that I finally took the plunge and purchased it. It was Rosie’s post that inspired me to click the checkout button and within 3 days it had arrived on my doorstep.

This is the first gel cleanser I have used and I first tried this in the evening to remove my make up. I use 2 pumps and smooth it all over my face, without water. It feels so luxurious on my skin and I love to stand for a couple of minutes and give my face a little massage to lift the dirt and make up. I then use a hot flannel to gently rub my face removing all the product. It has a lovely rose scent to it, which I find really relaxing and when I have more time I like to leave the hot flannel over my face (as Rosie instructed) and breath in the steam and floral aroma. You have to try it, it feels amazing! Now I know

A Weekend in Devon

On Saturday I popped into my local Lush store, as I wanted to pick up a few new skincare bits to try.

The first thing I was looking for was a night cream. I had bought the Full of Grace serum the week before and have been using it before bed, so I wanted a moisturiser to go with it. I asked the assistant for recommendations and she pointed me in the direction of Celestial. She offered me a generous sized sample so that I could try it on my face for a few days before buying the full size, which I thought was a really good idea. This is a light cream that can be used daily to smooth dry skin. It contains ingredients to protect the skin from damage while conditioning and soothing. I have tried this once so far and I like it a lot.

The next thing I was searching for was a decent hand cream that wouldn't leave my hands with a

An Introduction to Outlander

I love reading and have done since I was a child. You would always find me with a book in my hand and if I was reading a particularly good book I would rush home from school to carry on the adventure. These days I don’t get as much time to read as I would like so it takes me longer to get through a book, but I do like to try and go to bed a little earlier every night and read a few pages before I go to sleep. Sometimes I find a really brilliant book which I can’t put down and will read at every spare minute I get and very occasionally I get book hangovers.
