My Bedside Table Essentials

I don't know about anyone else, but for me, having a bedtime routine is so important in making sure you get a good nights sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. It's a time to revitalise, relax, and unwind! There's a few products that I keep beside my bed in order to achieve this.

As soon as I step into my bedroom at night, one of the first things that I like to do is spray some of the  Lush Twilight Body Spray over my pillows and bedding. Although it is a body spray, you can use it to ensure your bedding smells heavenly! I find that a couple of spritzes of the spray lasts me at least a couple of nights, so you don't have to use too much of it at all! The lavender scent is amazing for relaxing and ensuring you have a top quality sleep!

I also like to smother myself in the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion before I get into bed. This is the exact same scent as the Twilight body spray, as it is part of the same range of products from Lush. I love how moisturising this body lotion is, and the scent of this makes me feel so relaxed and, as the name suggests, sleepy! When I have used this, I wake up feeling so refreshes after having an amazing nights sleep, and my skin feels so incredibly soft and hydrated too! 

I like to keep a hand sanitizer beside my bed. In fact, I tend to keep them everywhere! One of my favourites, and the one which I currently have beside my bed is Carex Strawberry Laces. This smells amazing, just like the real thing! Carex have so many amazing scented hand soaps, it's so hard to pick a favourite!

Bedtime is a great time to make sure that I'm applying some hand lotion too! My all time favourite hand lotion is Soap & Glory Hand Food! Currently, I'm using the Sugar Crush scented Hand Food which Soap & Glory very kindly sent me as part of their #babesofglory campaign. I adore the scent of  Sugar Crush, and am very pleased to see it in the Hand Food format!

And then lastly, I like to make sure that my lips are hydrated before I head off to sleep. I like to use the Carmex Lip Balm on my lips, but in the tube format. I much prefer the tube to the tub! There isn't any other lip balm that I like to use more than Carmex, I love the sensation on my lips when I apply it, it leaves my lips feeling smooth, and, I like the scent/taste of it! It's an all round winner for me!

August 2018 Beauty Wishlist!

Hello August! The start of a new month always means one thing for my blog - a new beauty wishlist! As always, I'm going to give you the low-down on the products which I am loving the look of this month!

The first product on this months wishlist is the Sally Hansen Gel Rehab. I love having gel polish on my nails, but it really dries out, and damages my nails. This product looks as though it injects some goodness back into your nails after wearing gel polish. I think this is a product that I would really welcome into my nail care routine!

The next product on my wishlist is the Lush Sleepy Body Lotion. I bought a small tub of this towards the end of last year to try it out as there had been so much hype surrounding it. Having now used up all of the tub, I can see why there was so much build up around it! After every night that I had applied it before getting into bed, I had woken up feeling much more refreshed and had a good quality sleep the next morning. Normally when things are hyped, I always wonder if it's a gimmick, but this body lotion is the real deal! I highly recommend it, and definitely need to stock up!

I have also included the Garnier Moisture Bomb Eye Tissue Mask. I'm loving the look of eye masks recently, and to find a cheaper alternative on the market is great! These eye masks look really refreshing and great for the skin, so I'd be really interested to see what effect they have.

I have added the YSL Black Opium Click & Go to my wishlist in August. Black Opium is one of my all time favourite fragrances, so to find out that there is a more portable version of the perfume is great! It looks perfect to pop in a bag, and to top up the scent first put on the morning, throughout the day.

I've seen a lot of good reviews for the Embryolisse Lait Creme Concentré, so this is another product that I would love to try! It looks so hydrating on the skin, and that's one thing that's important in my skincare regime - hydration. This also looks like a good product for priming the skin before applying makeup.

Next is quite a fun product! It's the Imperial Leather Refreshers Shower Gel! Imperial Leather have quite a lot of unique scented shower gels on the market, and I just love that they've created a shower gel scented with a retro sweet! I can imagine that this will be a 'refreshing' shower gel to use and will leave you feeling extremely clean!

I've also been really into false lashes lately, nothing over the top, just something natural to enhance and elongate my actual eyelashes. I love the look of the Ardell Wispies Lashes. They look so natural, and seem to blend effortlessly into the lashline.

Lastly, on my wishlist is the Benefit Hello Happy Foundation. I'm going to admit, it's the packaging of this product which has sold me - it's adorable! I have no need for a new foundation at the moment, but maybe it's one to look at in the future?
