E45 Endless Moisture Derma Restore

Hi Ladies,

As I've mentioned on my blog before, I suffer with eczema and extremely dry skin. I have used E45's products since I was a child, so I was really excited when I was given the opportunity to try out their new product endless moisture derma restore to review for you.

Endless Moisture Derma Restore has actually been designed for mature skin. Although I wouldn't class myself as having mature skin quite yet, when reading up on the product I was really interested to read that it is enriched with specially selected ingredients to nourish the skin and leave it looking noticably softer, more supple and with a healthy glow in just three weeks! My skin is constantly rough and does not have the faintest hint of a ''glow'' so I definitely thought it was worth a try!

So what do I think?

After using this product for some time I am really happy with the way my skin looks and feels right now. It has definitely given more confidence to bare my legs for summer. I have tried apply this most nights before I go to bed, usually after showering. The formula is not sticky or greasy but I did find that it takes quite a while to feel like it has completely sunk in. My skin is also very sensitive but has not been irritated by this product.

As a fan of E45 products, I have not been disappointed by this moisturiser. But as it is formulated for mature skin, I think I will let my mum try out the rest of this (I'll let you know her thoughts!) and will continue to use my trusty E45 moisturising lotion. :)

You can find out more about E45's products at their website. Endless moisture derma restore retails at £4.59 for 200ml

Hope you're having a great week!

**This product was sent to me for review purposes, I have not been compensated for this review and as always it is my 100% honest opinion** :)

Primark Haul :)

Hi Ladies,

I went shopping earlier this week so I thought I would show you a few of the bits and bobs I picked up in Primark.

I love this oversized tan and navy blue T shirt, its really flattering and looks lovely with jeans and flip flops, It cost £8.00. I picked up this floral print dress for my summer holiday (which is AGES away, come around sooner please!) Its quite sheer, but great for popping over a bikini on your way to the pool or the beach.

I also picked up two pairs of shoes, although I normally live in my havaianas on holiday I couldn't resist these cute pink and navy flip flops as they were only £2.50! My mum actually spotted the 2nd pair, of tan peeptoes which were £8.00.

The last thing I picked up was this bun doughnut for £1.00 did anyone else use these in the hair for dance classes when they were younger? They are really easy to use and give you a perfect sleek bun, If you would like me to do a post showing you how I use them just let me know :)

and thats everything! Have a lovely weekend! I'm going to make myself a cup of tea (Tetleys Earl Grey with vanilla - lovely!) and watch some Wimbledon :)

I'm Back! (A rambly update)

Well Hello Everyone! :)

I am finally back after my month long break, thankyou so much for sticking around and hello to any new readers who found my little blog in the past few weeks!

After being super bogged down in exams and work, I am finally able to relax and recuperate! My very lovely boyfriend took me to Alton Towers this weekend to celebrate the end of my exams (I had nine, four on consecutive days - I was shattered by the end of them!) We stayed in the Alton Towers hotel which was lovely and had two days in the park and water park to go on all the rides. I had a fab time, I think my favourite rides were Air and Thirteen, I always get massively nervous before going on rides then love it once I'm on them and practically skip to the end of that 2 hour queue to do it all over again haha! - Does anyone else do this?!

In other news, I hadn't been feeling very well for the past few months, and after some tests and various other things I have been diagnosed with coeliac diease. This means I have to eat a gluten free diet (bye pizza, pasta, cakes and biscuits!) Although I found this quite difficult to start with, I am getting used to it now and I'm feeling absolutely loads better and a lot happier. The main problem I'm having is with finding things I can eat out in restaurants and getting used to checking the labels on everything! I am going to start trying to bake myself some gluten free cakes and various other baked goods so I'll let you know how I get on with those! If anyone is a coeliac/gluten intolerant and has any yummy recipe's or can suggest any fab gluten free brands I would love to know! :)

I have lots of exciting posts coming up :) I think I might start doing some nice summery outfit of the day's again out in the garden, and I will be popping up a favourites posts very soon. Let me know if there is anything in particular you would like me to do a post on! :)

So here's a big thumbs up to being back blogging, wahey! (excuse the cringe picture!)

Hope you are all well, and thankyou very very much again for sticking with me! and sorry for this post being a bit of a ramble :)
