Lacura Thermal Spring Shower Gel*
Aldi certainly know how to do affordable skincare well! This Thermal Spa Range is nourishing, lightweight and purse friendly. The range includes an eye cream, moisturiser and shower gel and is infused with natural thermal water to soothe and moisturise the skin. I will be repurchasing this next time I am in Aldi & highly recommend checking out the eye cream too.
This is one of the most gentle cleansers I have used and Its easy to see what it is such a cult favourite with almost every beauty editor & beauty blogger. It removes makeup with ease without leaving your skin feeling dry and the hot cloth helps dislodge dead skin to keep it looking radiant. Its a ritual I look forward too in the evening and the distinctive botanical scent is also calming. This creamy cleanser contains these skin loving ingredients, Eucalyptus Essential Oil, Cocoa Butter, Rosemary Essential Oil/Extract and Chamomile Essential Oil/Extract so very gentle, soothing and antioxidant rich.
Yes, this is AS good as everyone says. Its has been developed by blogger Ruth Criley and it is the best dry shampoo I have used, I have tried so many brands. I have the Rio version which smells amazing, it has tropical notes of papaya, pineapple & a heart of cassis. It just does exactly what you need a dry shampoo to do, it absorbs oil without weighing hair down or leaving behind a powdery residue. It has helped me out of many a bad hair day situation and if you are able to get it when its on offer in Superdrug make sure you stock up! You won’t want to try any other dry shampoos after this one.
LUSH Rose Jam Shower Gel
I’m not sure how this LUSH offering evaded me for so long, this was my very first time trying this and I can say that I am now very much addicted to the scent of this, Rose Jam who knew it could smell so good?! Its quite a thick consistency and it feels incredible and luxurious on the skin, its hydrating and leaves your skin very soft. I need to stock up on this so I never ever run out.
I have had this pot for a couple of years and I have found myself reaching for it less and less. For me its more of a Winter product as its quite thick and feels heavy on this lips much like a lip treatment. It comes in a pot which over time does become quite grubby and with it being a couple of years old I though it was time to say goodbye to it. I wouldn’t repurchase this and if I had to recommend a good lip balm it would be the Dr Paw Paw Ointment – its is amazing if you suffer from dry lips.
I was introduced to this brand earlier in the year and have been really impressed with this range. I ran out of the shampoo before the conditioner because after a few uses I realised how hydrating this SuperFruit range was and if I used too much product it weighted my hair down. So I use the conditioner every other wash and that works really well for me. This range contains some really great ingredients including,
- Superfruit–a blend of red raspberry, ketones, goji, acai and guava extracts rich in anti-aging antioxidants
- Marula oil–contains natural plant peptides that help support hair’s elasticity
- Biotin–nourishes individual strands for thicker, stronger hair
- Shea butter–deeply moisturises while conditioning hair and scalp
It leaves my hair feeling glossy, less frizzy, hydrated and more manageable. The fact that it doesn’t lather up took little getting used to but my hair feels a lot healthier for using it and SheaMoisture is a brand I highly recommend checking out. Their haircare range is available in Boots and they have an extensive selection for most hair types.
I would repurchase all of the products in this post apart from the NUXE Lip Balm. Let me know if you have tried any of them and if you would repurchase them too.
