As a busy Mum it can be hard to find the time to think and look after ourselves. Times when I know I am not going to be going out I can be found at home with a make up free face and straightened hair. When I go out I straighten my hair, pop on some foundation, eyeliner and mascara and off out I go.
From time to time I do like to make more of an effort. However I can't afford to get things done at the salon or have the time. I tend to get my eyebrows threaded when they need doing and a hair cut every 3- 6 months (don't judge me). But the rest of the time I like to do any pampering when I have a free moment at home.
Overtime I have found some great products that I love using to make me feel more better about myself and so I thought I'd share with you some of them.
When it comes to shaving small areas of my body such as my underarms I've started using Speed Shave. Speed Shave is a waterless travel razor that is travel safe for hand luggage and is unisex. Ideal for travelling and staying hair free and well-groomed on the go. The razor contains 10ml Speed Shave natural waterless shave lotion in the handle, that contains enough for 10 shaves (based on face or underarms). It combines a razor, Vegan shave lotion, body moisturiser in one.
I love being able to relax in a bath and I use loads of different brands of bath related products however recently I've loved using the Malki Dead Sea bath salts as they smell amazing. This a delightful aromatherapy treat without needing to go to a spa. Just scoop some bath salts into your running bath water and then lay down and relax enjoying the scent and pure relaxation.
The hottest hair and beauty trimming tool is ideal for us in between salon visits,to instantly transform your look with accuracy and gentleness without the fear of cuts.

When looking for new skincare products I came across the B. range in superdrug. The range comes in four phases with Phase one being the collection I use which is suitable for your late 20's/early 30's. So far I only have the moisture gel and night serum. However there is also a day cream and blemish gel. There is also a range which is for all skin types and I have been using the exfoliating cleanser which I love. In that range there are many other products such as make up removers,cleansing wipes, eye cream etc.
I've noticed my skin has been quite dry recently and I've also been getting spots more often. Carol's skin re-balancing serum is designed to restore bacterial balance quickly and gently.
It contains a smart patented natural anti-bacterial ingredient called MicroSilver ™ that only attacks bad skin bacteria, leaving good skin flora to flourish. This helps your skin to re-populate with the good stuff and keep the bad stuff at the castle gates.
