Relaxing Wishlist

Relaxing Wishlist



I’m currently in the middle of moving house and its taking its toll on me. I’m very tired and have aching muscles and in need of a huge pamper session but sadly all my products are in boxes so I thought I’d do a wish list full of relaxing products.

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray £16.00 – I have heard so many wonderful reviews of this and I have so many things on my mind at the moment that I am not sleeping very well so a few sprays of this would be very welcome.

Weleda Lavender Relaxing Bath Milk £12.95 – My new house has a really nice big bath and I’m very much looking forward to long soaks in the bath and this bath milk sounds very relaxing and the perfect thing to sooth my aches.

Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Room Candle £30.00 – I adore burning candles and this one sums me up so well. I am such a knackered cow at the moment. I will be treating myself to one of these once I’ve moved & unpacked everything.

LUSH Bunch of Carrots  £5.95 – How cute are these! I have to try them before they’re gone. I always miss the ltd edition collections at LUSH. They’re also a great calorie free Easter Treat! Ideal if you’re trying to be healthy.

Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts £37.00 – I have used these before and love them. They smell so good and make you feel all warm and relaxed. After you bath in these you will asleep within the hour. They completely knocked me out and I slept like a baby. I need to treat myself to a new tub. I have never tried anything like these before, they’re so calming.

Green & Spring Relaxing Body Lotion £22.00 – Packing and lifting boxes takes it out of you and isn’t great for your skin either so this body lotion sounds not only relaxing but it will keep me all hydrated and my skin very soft.

Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist £21.50 – I really like using face mists, they’re a great way to cool down, freshen up or just keep your skin hydrated and this Lavender one sounds relaxing and the perfect way to keep my skin looking fresh during the move.

Have you tried any of the products on my wish list? Or have any skincare / relaxing tips for moving house?

Weleda Citrus Deodorant

Weleda Citrus Deodorant

This was in my #LiveBloggers goody bag from the event back in September. I have been using it since the day I got it. I was excited to see it in our bags and I’ve used a few things from the Weleda Brand. The first thing I noticed was the weight of the product. It was really heavy, it’s a glass bottle which Weleda say is reusable – a great idea.  You do get 100ml of product and I’ve been using it for well over a month and hardly used any. It will last a good couple of months. I wanted to use this product for at least 6 weeks before reviewing it as I know that products can take a while to start working or for you to see any diference.

I was excited to really test this product out as I’d like to find a good natural deodorant  I know I worry about what chemicals I’m using on my underarms. With that area being particularly sensitive. This deodorant has a really lovely Citrus scent, it’s very fresh and pleasant  It is a scent that I really liked. Athough strong when you first put this on the Citrus doesn’t linger too long and it isn’t overpowering so wont interfere with your perfume.

I did notice that when I put this on after shaving it stung quite bad & I’m guessing this was due to the alcohol in it. So that was slightly unpleasant. I would say that I sweat an average amount. Nothing to crazy but I do like to feel like I can trust my deodorant and this Weleda one wasn’t great for me. I only apply it in the morning as it’s too heavy / bulky to take with you on the go to reapply. But by mid afternoon I would feel like I needed a top up and was self conscious that I didn’t have it with me to do that. I’ve been testing this in the colder months and so I tend not to get too hot and sweaty during Autumn/Winter and with this not really standing up during these months I wouldn’t feel comfortable using it in the summer for fear of being a sweaty betty.

As I work from home I will use it on the days I will be in the house as I want to use it up (hate to waste anything). I felt a little disappointed in this products as I wanted to like it & I do like the smell & think if you’re someone who doesn’t sweat very much then is for you. But I need a little more than this deodorant can give. For the price £8.50 it didn’t work well enough for me to repurchase.

Let me know if you have tried this Citrus deodorant from Weleda or any others from Weleda. You can purchase this from Weleda Online or Tesco
