A (Busy) Week in Beauty Products...


OK guys… so I haven’t put up a new blog post for almost 10 days **slaps self on wrist** but there is a good reason, I promise!

I’ve actually been moving house this week (well, technically we moved over the weekend, but it’s taken a whole week to get everything straightened out enough for normal programming to commence!) Anyways… I hope you’ll all forgive me?!

I’m back today to share a few beauty bits that I’ve been loving this week, during the stressful and grueling task of moving house, these products have really helped me through…
First of all and most essential, is a decent hand cream. I’ve never ‘properly’ moved house before (in-between uni and home etc doesn’t really count, as you’re not moving the whole house!) and I didn’t realise quite how badly all the dust and handling cardboard boxes dries your hands out! I’ve been using my gorgeous...


Mor Lychee Flower hand cream to fight off that horrible dryness and it’s been working a treat!
I’ve also noticed a turn for the worst in my skin on my face too. It’s probably a tiny bit due to stress, but I’m 100% convinced it’s mainly the dust that does it… uncovering untold havens of grime you never knew were there (hello, behind the tumble dryer!? YUK!) 
Anyway, to help get my skin back on track, I’ve been using a mixture of my new Ole Henriksen rose hip oil (which he calls Pure Youth Activating Oil but it’s pretty much just rose hip oil with a few added vitamins!) along with a couple of face-ful’s of Borghese Fango Delicate mud mask to keep those blackheads at bay (which, may I add, isn’t quite as good as the original, but I’ve run out, so it’ll have to do! And it’s ok for my whole face rather than just my T-zone which is a plus!)
Lastly, I’ve been using Weleda’s cult ‘Skin Food’ as my nighttime moisturiser to help cut through the dusty-dryness and I’ve fallen totally in love with it. 
It’s one of those products I’ve had a sample of for ages and never really been bothered about trying it… but it’s really wonderful if you have dry skin. You can use it anywhere on the body too, so it’s great for elbows and knees etc.
The final product I’ve found to be a total godsend this week is my This Works Stress Less Deep Sleep roll-on. It’s a blend of essential oils designed to help you sleep. Even though we’ve been going to bed at around 1am every night feeling utterly exhausted, I always find it hard to sleep in new places, and this has been really helping me to relax. I’m not normally a huge fan of these type of things, but I think feeling overly tired, mixed with the excitement of a new home calls for such measures! ;P I love it anyway.

Normal blogging will commence as of tomorrow. I just wanted to say hello and share a few bits and pieces with you. I hope you’re all having a lovely week!

  1. Sadly I've never heard of any of these products, but I'm really curious right now :D It probably has to do with the fact that not everything is available over here :(

    Great post!

  7. I hope the moving hasn't been too too stressful...at least you'll have a very organized home in no time.

    The This Works Stress Less Deep Sleep roll-on seems like such a unique product and perfect for this time.

    And the "skin food" .....best name for a product ever! How intriguing!

  15. I love the Weleda skin food! I just recently discovered and purchased it since it was on major discount at Target and my dry skin loved it.

  16. I have never heard of these products, but given I'm at Uni and sleeping is a luxury I can't afford now (exam preparation) I'd love to have that roll-on for those rare moments of free time which I could use for sleep. I don't have so much trouble with sleeping just with falling asleep.
    A suggestion for you - to do a post or a video about products that can help your sleep and relaxation when stressed out.

  20. Oh, I'm so curious about this Borghese mask ever since you first wrote about it! Getting it in at my place is really difficult and expensive and I'm trying so hard to be patient and wait until I get to the UK the next time to buy it there.
    You're making it rather hard for me! ;P

    Hope you'll get used to your new home as quick as possible so you'll be able to sleep safe and sound again =)

  37. I want to try the Mor hand cream just because of the package! I love really elegant black packaging, and that tube is perfect.

    I don't know how you can handle the scent of Skin Food! I'm not usually sensitive to scented products, but there was something about Skin Food that I just couldn't stomach. I ended up giving it to my dad so that he would have a good, more masculine-scented hand cream in the office.

    I'm a bit odd because I love moving house! There is something awesome about setting off on a new adventure and having a new place to decorate and enjoy. I also enjoy going through all my old clothes/products and donating everything that I don't need/use beforehand, so that I feel totally refreshed and renewed once I'm all settled in to the new place.

  38. I'm so going to use those products. My skin is really dry because of the constant changes of temperature! Thanks :)

  46. No need to apologize. I think most of us know how stressful it is to move house.

    Oh are the weleda products any good? I've been scared of trying them..with sensitive skin and all :/

  47. AAAAHH I love MOR, and the lychee flower products are my favourite. I have the lychee flower perfume oil (which has gorgeous packaging) and I recently bought my mum the sugar rose tiger lily soap bar, which smells so nice!
