When it comes to beauty products, I’m a bit of a creature of habit. Once I find something I like, I will keep re-buying it until I find a new product which I love even more. It’s been a long time since I last wrote a beauty favourites post and so I thought it was high time I shared some of my favourite new editions to my beauty routine, as well as couple of old favourites which I’ve mentioned before.

Beauty Favourites February 2017 - Rituals - Lush - Miller HarrisAt the moment I’m a bit obsessed with Rituals skincare. I’ve been using their bath and shower products for ages, as I love all their beautiful fragrances. I’d never tried any of their facial skincare until recently. I have been into their new Kingston branch quite a few times this year and recently had a skincare consultation. I absolutely loved the products they showed me and decided to take a few home with me.

Rituals Cleanser and TonerFirst up I purchased the Mild Cleansing Milk and Ultra Calming Facial Toner. These lovely products are really light and soothing and make my face feel soft and clean without stripping any moisture or feeling too heavy. They are really gentle and you only need to use a tiny amount of product to get the job done.

Rituals MoisturiserTo complement my new cleanser and toner I picked up an Active Moisture Lotion. I’m completely in love with this lovely moisturiser, again it’s not too heavy on the skin and perfect for applying in the morning before make-up. This really adds a boost to  my skin and absorbs really quickly leaving no stickiness. For my body I’ve been using the Ritual of Sakura Magic Touch Body Cream, which has been my go-to body lotion for the last couple of years. It smells absolutely divine and makes my skin feel amazing. I slather this on before bed and wake up with lovely soft skin, every morning.

Lush Snow Fairy and Dark AngelsMy two favourite Lush products at the moment are Dark Angels, which I’ve bought many times before and Snow Fairy Body Conditioner which I picked up for the first time in the post-Christmas sales and absolutely love. Dark Angels is perfect for when you want a really good cleanse. It’s packed with lots of fab ingredients including essential oils for a thorough clean. Sadly the Snow Fairy body conditioner is only a seasonal product, but it is one of Lush’s nicest scents. This conditioner is used in the shower for supper soft, sweet-smelling skin.

Poirier d'un SoirLasty, I just got a new bottle of my all time favourite perfume, as a gift from my husband. Pourier d’ un Soir by Miller Harris, is a beautiful old-fashioned scent. People always ask me about my perfume when I wear it and I get loads of compliments on it. It’s a little pricey, but each bottle usually lasts me about a year, so I see it as an investment.

What are your favourite beauty products at the moment, I’d love to hear your recommendations.



Lush Bath Bomb Bags
It feels like forever since I last shared a Lush haul on here. In fact it feels like ages since I treated myself to some goodies at all. With a few recent trips into London I’ve found myself wondering into the new Oxford Street store a couple of times and it is amazing! I have a separate post all about the Oxford Street shop coming up and I can’t wait to share all my photos with you. Today I want to share the lovely products I bought for me, Rob and the girls. Sadly being on a budget it’s not the biggest haul, but there’s at least one amazing bath in store for each of us!

Mini Lush Haul
The Christmas items are just starting to come instore at the moment, and it was so much fun looking at them all and having a sniff at all the lovely scents. I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of festive items despite it being September at the time.

Lush Father Christmas
For Rob I chose a Father Christmas bath bomb, because who could resist that cheery face?! He smells super sweet and apparently he’s green inside, I’m looking forward to seeing him fizz and melt.

Lush Snow Fairy
Also from the Christmas range, I got a small bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel. This was actually a little gift from the staff in the shop, I’ll explain why when I write about my trip to Oxford Street in a few days. This delicious candy floss scented shower gel, is the perfect girlie pink treat to make every shower fun. It smells amazing and looks absolutely adorable.

Lush Yoga Bomb
I got myself a Yoga Bomb, which is a luxurious richly scented bomb, for a long relaxing soak. My bath has blue mood lighting in it and I often turn all the lights out and have a bath in the dark with just the blue lighting on. This is lovely and relaxing but not so good for a gorgeous multi coloured bath bomb. Apparently this keeps changing colour as it slowly fizzes but I missed it all! It did smell fab though!

Lush Butter Bears
I got the little ones a Butter Bear each, they are packed with fairly traded cocoa butter and are lovely and moisturising for both kids and adults skin. I love that these are slightly cheaper than some of the other bath bombs and they’re a nice product for small people to try.

Lush Oxford Street Haul
And that’s it for now. Although I cannot wait to go back and get some more. Look out for my Oxford Street store post coming soon.
