It feels like it’s been a while since I last posted, it’s
probably not been all that long but I think I needed to step back and life sort
of took over. I’ll do more of a post about it soon but blogging was getting
stressful, which is not what I ever want it to be, and this break means I’m
actually looking forward to posting and have all these ideas. Anyway, onto the
I recently decided that I wasn’t really going to do many
hauls, but as I’m going away to Fuerteventura in April I had so many things I wanted
to get ready for that or that were on my list to buy after the no-buy February
and my general decluttering that I felt like I wanted to share with you guys
what I was getting. This is all from Boots and most of it is actually Soap and
Glory but I am so ready for these summer products that I got a bit excited and
may have bought almost everything in their new scent that they released in February.
It did help that almost everything that I bought was in a mix and match three
for two at the time so I got a few of these things free.
I’ve always meant to do empties posts, I just tend to find
that I go for ages without having any and then within a week everything I use
regularly is finished. I love reading or watching them when other people do
them as it shows what you actually use and like rather than a review of
something you’ve been using for a few weeks or days.
As I’ve been organising my wardrobe, I’m only part way at
the moment, I’ve ended up getting all the random stuff that got thrown into
this basket I got for empties so now it can finally be used as I wanted it to
be. I didn’t plan on it being overflowing before I did my first post though! I’ll
try to keep them shorter, maybe after every ten empties, I didn’t realise how
much was in there until I emptied it earlier! As there are so many I’ll try to
keep them short and I’ll link to any I’ve done reviews on so you can see more about

With the weather changing here in the UK I’m starting to change my skin care routine to a more autumnal or winter one as my skin tends to need more moisturising products in the winter time. One that I have used in the past, years ago now, and I thought I’d try again is the Soap and Glory Face, Soap and Clarity Vitamin C Facial Wash. As I got this one in a set it isn’t a full sized product and this one has 50ml of the face wash. A full sized version holds 350ml and costs £8 and can be found on the Boots website. It’s one of the products that I’ve seen in every Boots store I’ve been into though so I’d think they’d have it near you if you can get to a Boots.
According to the website this is suitable for all skin types and is a 3-in-1 face wash that smoothes, cleans and purifies, which sounds like most face washes to me. One thing that makes this one different to a lot of other slightly scrubby products is that, although it does have scrubby beads in it these are jojoba beads, not plastic microbeads. This does mean they’re softer and it’s not a scrub so it doesn’t give you the exfoliation of a scrub or exfoliator but if you have sensitive skin, like mine, then you don’t want something that has the harsh scrub effect anyway. They are also a cruelty free company but I don’t think this is a vegan or vegetarian friendly product, it would be best for you to check out the ingredients as a lot are the scientific names and chemicals so I don’t know where they come from.
