I’ve never been a lover of soap, even fancy or expensive handmade ones. I’ve usually either thought they were poorly made or had a bad reaction to them, plus I’ve never liked the feeling of my skin after using them, it’d feel extra tight and dry. So when Soapy Skin Ltd contacted me about doing a review, I was a bit nervous, but after reading all about their award winning Honey Oats Goats Milk Soap (it won the Janey Loves Platinum Award last year and quite recently it won a Silver Award in the Problem Skin Category from Free From Skincare), I was intrigued. I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything made from goat’s milk so I was curious as to how my sensitive skin would handle it.
I’d never even heard of Latest In Beauty until I saw a random unboxing on YouTube, so I checked it out and there was such an amazing choice of products, I couldn’t not try it out.
If you haven’t tried it it yet, basically how it works is you choose 3, 6 or 9 of your favourite products to try each month, all with free delivery, so you know exactly which and how many products you receive. Your first month’s subscription will come in a gorgeous limited edition make up bag which is chic and reduces unnecessary packaging – win-win!
I was so happy when mine arrived, I mean look at that cute pink packaging and you get a free card print with it, and being a huge Disney / fairy tale fan I really loved the one I was sent, I’m gonna frame it and put it in my office.
The travel bag that all my products were in is amazing quality and the perfect size for all the necessities I “need” to bring when travelling.
So what products did I choose?
One type of product that I’ve never really used is a specific night cream, more often than not I’ll just use my regular moisturiser or a good skin oil. But now that I’m in my 30s, I’ve been really trying to take care of my skin, so I thought it was about time that I found a great night cream. I was lucky to have some large samples to try out, I’d hate to fork out lots of money on something and then end up hating it.
After testing out a few different night creams, I found my ultimate night cream and y’all know that once I find something I LOVE, I’m hooked. I thought I’d give you some mini reviews on the night creams that I tried and then tell you all about the greatest night cream EVER.
If you don’t know already, Love Me Beauty is a credit based subscription service, you receive 60 credits per month and you pick the products, products range from 5-20 credits each.
There’s been some amazing brands featured on it, like Kat Von D, OPI, NUXE, Laura Mercier, Benefit, MakeUp Forever, Omorovicza and many more.
Sometimes items run over from one month to the next, so if you didn’t manage to get something one month, or you absolutely loved something you might be able to get your hands on it the next month.
I’ve gotten stuff from Love Me Beauty a few times and have always been pretty impressed with the choice of products.
This month I had some extra credits to use and was able to pick a couple of extra products so what did I get?
There are hundreds of men’s fragrances out there, but in our opinion, there’s very few that really WOW us gals.
I can’t speak for Sarah, but I know my guy isn’t at all fussy, he generally likes every scent I buy for him, he probably wouldn’t go out of his way to buy any for himself; he’s ace at picking out perfumes for me though.
We thought we’d share some of our top scents for men with you, as between the two of us we’ve bought quite a few for our other halves over the years and tested many a sample on them too, they’re really the best guinea pigs. These might give you some ideas if you’re looking to treat your guy to some new scents.
