Review: Vitamin E Cool BB Cream (The Body Shop)

Hello, so today I am just going to post a little review on a new product that I stumbled across recently. It is The Body Shop's Vitamin E Cool BB Cream. Up until now I was a BB cream virgin so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. 

I applied this BB cream one morning before college and I was pretty impressed with it. Unfortunately it has little to no coverage (as expected from a BB cream), so I did not feel comfortable enough to wear it on its own. I wore it as a base for my other make up and it did make a real difference, it gave me a nice glow, evened out my skin tone and my face felt moisturised. I also felt like it made my make up last longer. 

I think this product would be great to take on holiday for when you don't really want to wear much make up and perhaps when you have a bit of a tan. The BB cream is £10 for 50ml which is a bargain if you ask me and also they promise to donate 50p to teenage cancer trust with every sale of the product.

Has anyone else ever tried this product? What did you think?

Beth, xx

new favourite candle ❤

Hello, so this is just a short review about one of my new favourites. It's a candle from Laura Ashley that I received as an Easter present. It's in the scent Citrus Blossom & Nectarine and it is just lovely. 

The scent is quite strong and you can smell it as soon as you walk through the door it also seems to be lasting pretty long. Silly me can't seem to find the box, I may have binned it (woooops) so aplologies for the lack of pictures.

I will definitely be trying more Laura Ashley candles in the near future.

Have any of you tried any nice candles lately? Let me know....

Hope you're all having a nice Monday.

Beth, xx
