Smooth Lines

Summer is harsh on my skin and a good moisturiser is a must. I have tried many over the years from classics such as Dove and Nivea to popular ones like Soap and Glory, however none of them really improve my skins appearance and often leave that horrible sticky feeling on my skin... gross!

Now i'm not a huge fan of body oil products usually, due to them also leaving a sticky feeling on my skin. However when on a recent little shopping trip to Boots, decided to pick this Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil up as part of the 3 for 2 offer. 

I was a little apprehensive at first as I thought it would be just the same as all of the other body oil products I have tried in the past. However I was pleasantly surprised; it soaks straight into the skin and smells amazing! I also claims to be a skin perfecter; however I am dubious about these qualities!  However at  only £7.99 from Boots I think I will be repurchasing when I run out!

Have you tried Garnier Ultimate Beauty Oil?

Cooler Than Me

I Don't know about you, but I for one have been enjoying the latest little heatwave we have been having. Which unfortunately looks like it has come to a sudden end judging by today's weather! 

However as a typical Brit, at the first sight of sun I was out there basking in it fully aware of the damage it can do to my skin and stupidly managed to get sunburn! 

I normally use some kind of Aloe Vera based product to cool my fiery skin down when I have the dreaded sunburn, even though I hate the smell! However this time I decided to spritz some Eau Thermale Avene- Thermal Spring Water on my very sore arms and neck and instantly felt the benefit. After a few more spritzes the warmth and pain had all but vanished and I can now honestly say that this is something I will be using in the future for sunburn. 

Now I know that the can only contains water, just H2O... but somehow it has the ability to completely calm down and sooth the awful burning feeling that comes with of sunburn! It's like magic and I am completely in love with the stuff! However it is fairly expensive for the amount you get really, but I will continue to buy it anyway!

I bought this little can from Boots for around £3 for 50ml

I am thinking about trying some of the other products in the range now.
Would you recommend any other Eau Thermale Products?
