A Few Recent Favourites



Lily Lolo Gloss in English Rose* | £7.99
I had forgotten how much I love Lily Lolo as a brand until I started seriously looking into cruelty free beauty products. English Rose is a beautiful muted pink colour that makes me look like I've put in a little more effort that I actually have, and the formula is smooth and comfortable to wear. I wish my skin weren't quite so dry so I could go back to their mineral foundation, but I've noticed that they've brought out a BB cream which I'm quite intrigued by so that might be something I'll have to try at some point soon.  

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub | £8
This tub of joy came in the Soap & Glory set I received as a Christmas gift and I'm fairly sure it's one of the nicest smells I've ever smelt. I don't really rate it much as a scrub because, well, it's not very scrubby, but honestly I love it for the scent alone and I will use every last little bit.

The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist | £7.50
I recently puppy-sat for my Mum and as a little thank you gift she gave this to me. Recently I've been all about simple perfumes and this is exactly that. Obviously not the most long-lasting scent in the world, but it does last for much longer than I was expecting! I bloomin' adore it and the coconut mist is one I'd like to get in time for summer.

You Are Not The One by Vestal McIntyre | £7.51
A collection of eight short stories, each as wonderfully written and smart as the next. They're full of charmingly real characters and I really connected with them. There's everything from a pet octopus to getting kidnapped whilst wearing a kangaroo outfit, but somehow they remain so relatable and funny.  

Is there anything that you have been particularly loving recently?

  2. Ooh the body shop mists are great aren't they! I was so surprised how well they last and they're so nice and light for summer! (The Indian Summer Jasmine one is gorgeous!) Is the Vanilla one super sweet or is it quite subtle? :)

    1. Ooh that sounds amazing! It's definitely not overwhelmingly sweet, it's a little much at first but it settles really nicely almost immediately! xo

  7. I absolutely love the Sugar Crush Scrub, I've used that stuff religiously for around two years, after hearing someone mention how divine it smells! I think I've must have gone through around ten or so tubs of the stuff! x

  8. I like so much the lily lolo's products.. I've got their palette of nude shades and it's very pretty. I read of many people which are complaining about the smell of their products but I never had this kind of problem.

  14. The Sugar Crush scrub was in my recent faves post - i love it too! I've also been loving Zara Oriental perfume and it's an absolute steal at only £9.99 for a 100ml bottle! They also do a fruity one if that's your kind of scent, it's equally as nice and still only £9.99!

  15. I absolutely love the smell of the Sugar Crush body scrub, it's almost good enough to eat! I find that S&G's Flake Away scrub is much better for exfoliation (and it still smells pretty good too) xx

    Anyway, I heard so many good things about the body mist!
    Is it too sweet?

  18. I adore the scent of Sugar Crush too, but it is a bit naff as scrubs go... I keep telling myself I'm going to pick up the body butter but haven't got round to it yet...
