Summer's here (kinda) and I'm back!

I’m back! Sorry for being M.I.A for a couple of weeks, my last post explains why. I hope you like the new layout! I got bored of my old one, which I only had for a few months but I felt it needed a change. I think this one looks a bit more professional and I made sure the quality is a lot better! Sounds cheesy to be like ‘I need a massive change!’ after a breakup, but I kinda felt like a layout change and getting back on track with blogging will help! Blogging was the last thing I wanted to do at first, but as my life has changed in the past couple of weeks and as they say, life moves on!

I’ve had this post in mind for a while now but since it’s June and (supposedly) the start of summer, I think its perfect timing. I always use more body products in the summer, I never really switch between different things in summer and winter, I just use more! I swear by these products, some are recent purchases but are something that I love already!

After taking forever to decide which sugar scrub I wanted next, I decided to go with this one purely based on the gorgeous smell! I feel like you could literally eat this (it isn’t actually edible obviously!) because it smells sooo good!

This is makeup rather than body care, but this is going to be a must for me in the summer! I started using this when it was really hot (in England!) a month or so ago. My skin is a lot better now than it was when I first bought this so I thought I’d give it a go. I hate wearing foundation in the summer, there’s nothing worse than it being a really hot day and your foundation basically melts off! This gives a nice light coverage and because it’s powder based, it doesn’t feel like I have any makeup on at all.

Bio Oil is one of those products that have such a big hype over, but you never get round to buying it. After pondering over whether to buy it for ages, I decided to give the cheaper 60ml a try. I’ve only been using it for just over a week and I use it on scars that I have, so I haven’t noticed any difference yet but I’m hoping I will! You have to use it twice a day (depending on what you’re using it for) for a minimum of three months, so I think it’ll be a while until I notice any difference.

I’ve used this since I was 17 and I love it! I’m way too nervous to try proper fake tan, knowing me I’ll end up looking like an actual orange! So this is the best thing for me! I make sure I use my body scrub before I put this on, so I don’t get any dodgy patches! It develops to a really nice colour for me and you’re supposed to apply it everyday until you get the colour you’re after, but once or twice it enough for me!

I haven’t been using this long enough yet to notice a massive difference, although I have noticed my skin on my thighs is really soft! It smells of peppermint which is really nice and I love how when you sit down it starts to warm up! My thighs are so wobbly so I hope this helps firm them up a bit! I have heard really good reviews about this so it’s definitely something I’m going to be using throughout the summer.
