Review: Aveda facial at Shine

I’ve only ever had one facial before so when I was asked if I’d like to review the new Dual Exfoliation Power Peel Treatment from Aveda at Shine I jumped at the chance, the salon is in the heart of the North Laines tucked away in a really great location a 5 minute walk from the train station. The general…

The latest addition to my bathroom is the Seascape Refresh hand soap and hand lotion set, which they very kindly sent me as an early Christmas Present!

Sleek Vintage Romance palette

  I bought this last week with my Superdrug points, as I don’t actually need any more palettes (I have all the Sleek Palettes apart from the neon one, and i’m sure it’s only 80’s themed hen parties that buy that one…) but I figured spending points isn’t real money!

No 7 Gel Cleanser vs Naturally Radiant hot cloth cleanser

Vs I bought the No7 Melting Gel Cleanser(£9.00) or £4 with a voucher)  with a £5 off boots voucher, as I was running out of my Superdrug Naturally Radiant hot cloth cleanser (£5.99 but half price at the moment) so thought I’d compare the two, although they are slightly different products they claim to do more or less the same…
