New Years Resolutions

1. To stop apologising for not blogging and actually blog! My heart has not really been into blogging lately, I've barely been checking my reader (but I will!) and honestly I can think of nothing to blog about half the time. 2011 needs me to get back into it - I love reading back and seeing whats happened in the past, its why I started blogging and I don't want to stop now.

I have recently changed my skincare routine and thought I would share with you what I'm currently using, I don;t really seem to blog about skincare, it isn't something I give a lot of thought to at all, I'm pretty damn lazy truth be told. I'll think of a routine and eventually forget about it, I'm useless. But I've been using this for a few weeks now so I thought I'd blog about it - at least if I do get lazy when i read back on this post I'll pick it up again!

Mac Pro Eye Make Up Remover

I received a small sample of this in an online order I placed recently and have been using this up. I'm glad it's only a sample because I don't overly rate it - I wouldn't have wanted to part with £13. It doesn't remove all of my eye make up, it does remove the majority of it but I still have a hell of a lot left on after using it.

The Body Shop Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash

Back sometime last year I was sent so many different products, along with the ones I bought myself after reading many reviews, I didn't have chance to use certain ones. I've had a clear out of my things lately and found the Nutriganics range I was sent and have been using these. I love foaming facial washes and I really like this one. I love the smell and it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft, and I would definitely repurchase. You can find it here for £8.00.

The Body Shop Nutriganics Smoothing Serum

Again, this was sent to me by The Body Shop last year. I have to say that there are few Body Shop products I dislike, and this is no exception. I again love the smell of this and the non greasiness. For 30ml the price is £13 - usually i find when a bottle says you need one pump of product you actually need more but one pump of this is enough to cover your face and neck.


This sounds like it is turning into a Body Shop post! Lastly for the Nutriganics range I was sent the Smoothing Day Cream which I am using as a daily moisturiser. My favourite moisturiser is Garnier Pure Active (nothing beats the smell - I love it!!) but I do like this one and I like using it together with the other items in the range (I'm really fussy about mixing and matching different ranges!).

Lastly on a night I am applying The Body Shop Vitamin E SPF 15 Moisture Lotion. I have bought this frequently for the past two years and \although it is not a night cream I apply it last thing before I go to bed as I find it such a thick moisturiser, it really sinks in and leaves my skin feeling so soft. It's £10 for 50ml.

Temple Spa

I recently was invited to a Temple Spa party at my friends. I had actually never heard of Temple Spa before the party but now have a pretty major wish list!! I only purchased two things at the time but I can't wait to buy more when I get paid. I picked up the Breakfast Smoothie Naturally Normal Exfoliator. This. Smells. AMAZING. The key ingredients listed on the website are:

Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba, Honey, Pear & Apple Juice, Strawberry juice, Allantoin, OIive Oil, Oats, Papaya, Orange, Squalane

I love that this is mild enough to be able to use more than once a week - I try get three uses a week at least, usually every other day if I remember.

Has anyone else got any products from Temple Spa they love?
