HAUL: Boots Holiday Goodies


Well hello there! Looks like someone has been naughty in Boots yet again! I'm not even going to apologize, because obviously I really needed all of these things. To be honest I was feeling rather spendy prior to my holiday and wanted some new bits to take away with me so this is what I bought...

The Avene Thermal Spring Water I think is pretty self explanatory. I thought this would come rather in handy for cooling us down in Turkey where it is currently 33 degrees. I like these sprays because they also contain vitamins which are good for your skin and this is also suitable for sensitive skin, which is good for poor Lewis. Also as a holiday essential I picked up a miniature Tresemme Heat Protect Spray, which I tend to use a lot. It's very cheap in supermarkets and seems to work! There are other heat protectants which I am more fond of, but this one certainly does the job. Lastly, I bought some Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner in Dazzling Shine, which I believe is of a citrus fragrance. Not terribly exciting, but very necessary for clean, shiny hair! 

Now onto the more exciting part of the haul! Make up! I've been looking for a nice coral blusher for a while now and could not help but notice how cute and quirky these Clinique Cheek Pops are! I picked this one up in ginger pop, which is a gorgeous coral with a nice bit of gold shimmer. It's also handy that the packaging is pretty compact. Next up I went straight to Revlon and picked up some lipstick. No holiday is complete without an orange lippie so I settled for the Colourburst Matte Balm in Audacious, which is a bit of a bold choice for me, but if you can't have bright orange lips on holiday then when can you?! I decided that one lipstick was just not enough so I also slipped a Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick into my now expanding basket. This is a lovely barbie pink, but not as bold as my first choice as it has a more glossy finish...super excited to wear them though! 


Next, I went in hunt of a 'holiday' foundation. I normally completely forget to pick up a darker foundation for when my face gets tanned or I end up just buying my every day foundation a few shades darker, but I didn't want to spend loads on a foundation I was only going to use for a couple of weeks so when I saw the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation on offer I decided that it would do perfectly. I'm a little worried as I've never used this before, and I don't always like drugstore foundations, but hopefully my skin will look good enough with a tan anyway that I won't even need much foundation. After this I spotted the Collection Work the Colour Nail Varnish selection, which were also all on offer for just £1.50. I should have really picked up a few of these, but I got one in Baby Blue, which is exactly the colour it sounds. I've actually wore this already and despite the price it actually is good quality and hardly chips! Last but not least I picked up some Eyelure False Eyelashes in the hope that someday I will actually be able to apply false lashes. These ones are pre glued, which I actually didn't notice when I picked them up, but I've got some spare glue lying around anyways so I'll probably just use that as well. 

Definitely think I was perfectly restrained in Boots, and most of these things are coming on holiday with me so that's my excuse! 

Have you guys used any of these products? What do you think of my choices?

Samples #3: Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream*


Now this is what I call a good sized sample! This 25ml pot of Trilogy Rosapene Night Cream* was actually sent out to me a while ago as a PR sample, but me being me I actually completely forgot all about it and it was chucked into the dreaded 'samples drawer' only for me to discover it nearly two months later. I recently ran out of my go to night cream so decided to give this a little run and see whether I liked it or not. 

The cream aims to draw out toxins and impurities whilst you sleep in order to brighten the skin. On the website it states: 'wake up to a brighter revitalized complexion'. The ingredients contain rosehip oil, avocado oil and vitamin E which immediately tell me that this is a good quality skin care product as these are the types of ingredients which will normally encourage me to buy something. I have never tried anything by Trilogy before, but I really liked this.

When I first went to use this there was a really strong smell from the cream which was not unpleasant just a little strong for my nostrils, however, once you apply this cream it sinks straight into the skin and there is literally no lingering scent. While the texture of this is a little thicker and more rich than what I am used to I actually really enjoyed this, and I would go as far as saying that it is a marginally cheaper dupe for L'occitane's Cream Divine

When I woke up in the morning my skin looked fresher and brighter, and instead of my forehead looking dry and dehydrated it looked very radiant and fresh! This definitely did a good job of completely energizing my skin over night, and I've seen small but significant changes to my skin since I started using this. For example, about three days after I started using this i noticed how nice my make up was and people kept giving me compliments saying that my make up was lovely! 

Overall, I really enjoyed this and I think I might purchase myself a bigger jar come payday as although it is a little expensive sometimes you really do get what you pay for; and its nowhere near as expensive as L'occitane's offering. 

Have any of you tried this product or anything by Trilogy? What night cream do you use?

Flight Essentials


One of the best parts of going on holiday for me is the flight to your destination. It's always super exciting getting to the airport, checking in your luggage and having a good old wander round for some food, and duty free make up goodies. In fact, I like packing my hand luggage bag even more than I like packing my suitcase. However, there are certain things which are an absolute MUST in my flight bag, so lets see what they are shall we...

Beauty: When you are off on holiday the last thing you probably care about is looking after your skin ect, but flights can make yourself and your skin extremely dehydrated so its probably important to pack a good moisturizer for during the flight to keep you looking radiant, and healthy. I think I'll be taking my newest discovery and obsession, which is the Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet! I'm also taking a Chapstick for my lips as they too get very dry when flying. Now I don't really suffer from dry hands on flight but I always have a hand cream in my every day handbag anyways, so I'm going to take my old trusted favourite, which is the Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment

Refresh: For getting off the flight and onto my holiday destination or next part of the journey I always feel the need to freshen up a little. I always pack some wipes, and my face wipes of choice are always these ones by Simple. I'm also going to take my La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray which will give my skin a little moisture boost every now and then. Now I am extremely strange about public toilets so I'll definitely be bringing some hand sanitizer; the one in the picture is by Radox and smells amazing! I've also packed some eye gel from Anatomicals, so that instead of looking tired and sleepy I will look like I've just woken up from my beauty sleep (hopefully)! Lastly, I'll be taking a mini perfume from TBS, which is in their new Fijian Water Lotus Scent so I'll be smelling sweet!

Miscellaneous: I have to admit that I'm a huge book worm. It's one of the things I most looked forward to when I finished uni for the summer; being able to read a good book in my spare time! This one is called A Thousand Splendid Suns and although I haven't read it yet, it sounds like everything I love in a novel. It's supposedly dramatic, inspiring and a little bit sad. I can't wait to pass the time with this! Headphones are also a huge must especially if your ears pop on the plane. I normally listen to music on my phone to stop this from happening. 

Bit Weird: Does anyone else get cold feet on a flight? Just me? I always take a pair of socks as whenever I'm flying as my feet always get cold and numb in the air. My mum keeps telling me I should get flight socks but I think these frilly Topshop ones are way cuter! Oh and I just love food so much that there is no way in hell I'm going 4 hours without anything to snack on so I'll be sneaking a few snacks in my bag. Will probably buy a lot more through in customs though.

What are your flight essentials? Anything that is an absolute MUST?

Pre Holiday Pamper


There is nothing I love more than a good old fashioned pamper session! And what better excuse do I have now that I'm going on holiday in 6 days! Although holiday preparations can be a little stressful and time consuming, I actually quite enjoy a little pamper session before going on holiday. I've actually made a waxing appointment this year too so instead of all that time consuming de fuzzing stress I'll be concentrating on more enjoyable things, such as having a glass of wine and a bubble bath! 

I always give my skin a good old scrub with an exfoliator before I go away. Firstly, it prepares your body for tanning as it gets rid of all the yucky dead skin, and secondly, it leaves your skin fresh, glowing and is said to minimize cellulite! For a good old body scrub I will be using TBS Blueberry Body Scrub Gelee, which smells beaut as does anything from The Body Shop, and to exfoliate my feel I use another TBS product, which is the Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak! I also use a pumice stone to get rid of any hard skin on my feet, but I haven't pictured this as I didn't really think it was necessary, and I didn't want to gross anyone out! I will then be using this No7 Blissful Body Wash as its slightly more nourishing and moisturizing than another ordinary shower gel and smells just like the inside of a spa!! 

Moving onto hair (of body and of head) this is where I would normally shave my legs ect, but I don't have that to worry about due to being super organized and actually having made a waxing appointment! My hair gets really dry and straw like in the hot hot heat that is anywhere abroad, so I'm going to make sure I use a good treatment on it before I go. This one is Tresemme Platinum Strength, and it works to repair damage and nourish dry ends. 


After a bath (or shower if you prefer) is the perfect face mask opportunity as all your pores have opened up with the steam. My favourite face mask of all time is the Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed since it leaves my face super clean and radiant, and allows my moisturizer to sink in like a dream afterwards. Moisturizing your body should be quick and easy, but sadly its just not. I have three products here which I use regularly; the first one is TBS Brazil Nut Oil, which makes your skin ridiculously soft and leaves no residue so long as it is applied to damp skin. Another TBS body moisturizing product is my favourite Body Butter in Coconut, which is amazing if you have dry skin as it is so so nourishing and the smell is divine. Last but not least is actually my body Moisturizer of choice which is the Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion with Gradual Tanner. I always like to be a teeny tiny bit brown for the first day of my holiday to avoid looking like a milk bottle in a bikini so this should do the trick while also leaving my skin super soft and hydrated!

Moving onto the last product it is Avon Footworks Heel Softening Lotion, and I will be popping this on before bed avec cotton socks to ensure my feet and tootsies are perfectly moisturized, and soft in my summer sandals! Now, normally I'd move onto nails and toes, but the super organised in me had also managed to book a manicure and pedicure appointment before I go away so hurrah for being organised!! 

How do you prepare for going on holiday? What are your favourite pamper products?

Brow This Way



Not too long ago I popped into Boots for some 'essentials' spotted this newly launched brow product on a special offer and somehow it ended up in my basket at the checkout. I don't know who put it there or why, but I'm glad that they did. I have a huge eye brow obsession, and I am always trying new things when it comes to my eyebrows. Even when I go out make up free I have to at least pencil my eyebrows in! 

Brow This Way by Rimmel is the latest brow product to catch my eye, and of course every other beauty blogger out there. I'd seen lots of reviews pop up on Bloglovin' recently but I actually hadn't even realized what this was until I actually saw it in the shops. I was a bit disappointed when I saw that the brush is quite big as I was expected it to be like Gimme Brow by Benefit, which is one of my all time favourite brow products. Nope the brush on this is a little bit chunky but the product itself is very good. 

I picked this up without even realizing that it came in different colours and I've ended up with 'dark brown' which is probably a little too dark for me but bitch please I can make it work! This does take a while if you are going to apply it properly so if you are looking for a quick fix then this will not be your heroine of choice, but by god does it last all day! My eyebrows literally looked perfect from 8am when I left for work until 7pm when I got home! I would say that it can leave your brows on the crispy side if you apply too much product but its nowhere near as bad as other similar products! 

To summarize this little beauty I'd like to inform you that it is cheap, cheerful and a fairly good product. It is in no way perfect, but for the price you can hardly complain! I've also heard it comes in a clear gel so obviously THAT is going immediately on my wishlist. 

Have you guys tried this yet? What are your favourite brow products?

Safe Tanning Guide


If there's something I'm a bit of a weirdo with its SPF. When I was a teenager I used to sunbathe endlessly without any protection at all because I stupidly believed that wearing proper SPF protection would prevent me from getting a tan. When I was 19 I heard the news that someone a little older than me who lived on my street had been diagnosed with skin cancer. Since she was only 25 at the time I panicked and realized what I had been doing wrong all of these years thinking that I would never be affected by such a horrible disease as my skin was too young. Unfortunately, anyone can be affected, and its not just skin cancer we need to worry about. UV rays can be seriously damaging to young skin, promoting premature ageing and hyper pigmentation, none of which are reversible. Today I want to talk you through my little stash of sunscreens, and how I (safely) use them.


Face: Your face is probably the most important place to protect as unlike your body you can't cover it up when you start getting wrinkles and sun damage. I adore the L'oreal Active Anti-wrinkle and Brown Spot Matte Fluid Protection, because unlike most sun creams this has a matte texture and leaves virtually no residue on the skin. It protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and is perfect for wear underneath make up. If I am planning on going abroad I usually take something with a little more protection, and I recently bought this Avon Moisturizing Sun Cream for Face to take away with me next week. I haven't used it yet so I can't say what its like, but with a high SPF of 30 its perfect for the face. I also got Boots Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream as I quite often forget to keep my sunglasses on and I thought this would be handy to really protect my delicate under eye skin from the sun. 


Body: I used to assume that I didn't need to wear sun cream because in general my skin tans pretty easily. I never really burn, and I have tan lines pretty much all year round. I didn't know until recently that actually a tan can be just as damaging as sunburn if you don't take the proper precautions. For next week I'm going to be taking three sunscreens with me. Firstly, I'll be taking the Nivea Invisible Protection Spray in SPF 30, which I wanted for all those areas that are never usually exposed and therefore a little more vulnerable to the sun. It's good that this one is water resistant and non greasy as I hate feeling sticky and spend a lot of time in the pool on holiday. I'm also going to be using Garnier Ambre Solaire Golden Protect in SPF 20, which is a good moderate level of protection for someone who tans easily like me. I've also went for the Hawaiian Tropic Dry Oil Spray in SPF 15 for the last few days to boost my tan. Since this still has an okay level of SPF I don't feel bad about using this to tan. It also smells amazing! 



Hair and Scalp: I really seem to suffer from a dry itchy scalp when I go on holiday, not to mention my hair seems to completely frazzle and become so dry. I saw this Soltan Head and Hair Protector in Boots and decided to give it a go. It's supposed to protect your head and hair from the sun and stop your scalp from burning, so I actually think this is a great idea, and can't wait to try it!

How do you guys feel about SPF? Do you use it wisely or neglect it?

Samples #2 : Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash


This morning I was just about to pop into my usual daily shower when I realized my skin was looking a little flaky and dry. As it turns out I hadn't had a good old exfoliating session in too long, which is uncharacteristically naughty of me as I'm normally a complete geek when it comes to exfoliation. I like my skin to be as fresh, clean and soft as possible so I always make sure to exfoliate twice a week. I also suffer from oil and breakouts so its very important for me to make sure I get rid of all the impurities and reveal fresher, newer skin beneath.

Earlier on in the week I told you all about how I was going to do some mini reviews on my huge stash of samples to use them up so I took this as the perfect opportunity to raid through my stash and find something. Eventually I found this Microdelivery Exfoliating Facial Wash. Philosophy have always been one of my favourite brands for skincare and I rather enjoy the simple fuss free packaging. Since the brand is sometimes a little out of my reach in terms of price I decided to give this a go and see how it held up to some of the more high street brands. 

IWhen I squeezed this out of the packed it felt amazing and a little similar to the No7 Microdermabrasion Exfoliator, which is one of my HG products. The only difference seemed to be that the exfoliating beads in this one were even finer, and possibly that there were more of them. This was also a lot more gentle on my skin, which it probably has to be due to the fact this is intended for daily use. The No7 one on the other hand is more of a weekly treatment so I'd perhaps say that it is possibly more effective if a little harsh on the skin. 

Overall this did a great job of smoothing out and refining the texture of my skin. As soon as I got out the shower I could not help but notice how soft and radiant my skin looked and felt. The question as to whether I would actually go out and purchase this is tricky, however, as while I did enjoy this sample I have no idea as to how this could affect my skin long term, and though it would be interesting to see I just think this is a little to pricey for me to purchase after just one teeny tiny trial sample. 

Have any of you ever used this exfoliator? Is it any good long term ?

Newbies #5


It definitely seems like ages since I've done my usual newbies post. Maybe that's because I've been putting a little bit of a curb on my spending (or at least trying to) until I go on holiday. Speaking of going on holiday it's only a week tomorrow until I'm outta here! Sorry but I'm just super excited to be getting some sunshine after a couple of very dreary weeks here in Glasgow. I did manage to pick up a few new bits and pieces over the week which I'm pretty excited to try! 

Firstly, I went out and got the Boots Vitamin E Eye Cream to take on holiday with me. I don't usually bother with an SPF eye cream when I go away but I thought it would be a good idea seeing as you'll quite often find me lazing around the pool sans sunglasses (naughty). I've tried it a couple of times and it seems okay. It has a pearly/shimmery effect to help brighten the eye area and it's apparently suited to all skin types including those with sensitive skin. It was also incredibly cheap; correct me if I'm wrong but I actually think this may have been around the £2 mark. So, I suppose if I don't get on well with this it isn't really a waste. 

Secondly, I got two new eye products both of which are drug store brands. I'm sure you all have heard of Rimmel's new eye brow product Brow This Way which only launched a few weeks ago. I normally use Benefit's Gimme Brow, and this sounded quite similar so I thought I'd give it a try. I picked up the colour dark brown for a bit of drama, but I have a feeling it may be just a tad dark for me. Also, unlike Gimme Brow the brush on this is quite big and clunky so you really have to take your time when applying. The other thing I picked up is the Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner, which is a bit of a disappointing purchase already if I'm honest. I like my eyeliner jet black as possible but this is a little dry, and fades really quickly. It also smudges onto the top of my eyelid throughout the day which is really annoying. So overall I'm not particularly impressed with this. 

These are all the new bits I managed to pick up this week! Have any of you tried any of these?

Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet



Another day, another product from The Body Shop...are things getting a little repetitive around here? Hopefully not as I'm sure you all love TBS's wonderful products as much as I do. Anyways, I picked this up in a recent haul - link- and so far have been loving it so I thought I'd give it a little review.

Let me start by telling you that this is probably the best hydrating face cream I have ever used. After cleansing it was quite an experience to pop this on my face. I definitely wasn't expecting the cooling, soothing, and thirst quenching effect that it had on my skin. If I had to describe this I would say it is literally like a drink for your skin. Whats more is that it glides on like a dream and leaves absolutely no residue unlike most normal moisturizers. You can literally feel it sink under layers of skin straight away and the gel like texture means it does not in anyway interfere with the application of make up. In fact I would say it kind of enhances it as I have been using this under my make up without a primer for a few weeks, and it more or less does the same job that a hydrating primer would. 

I tend to apply make up pretty early on in the day as I'm normally a really busy person so my day is either packed full of work, blogging or something else just as time consuming. After a whole day I found this managed to keep my make up looking fresh which isn't always easy when you wear a heavy duty matte foundation. I found that where my T zone is normally a shiny mess halfway through the day it actually stayed pretty matte and shine free. 

This is one of those rare products that has completely blown me away! Keeps you looking matte, but yet still fresh, hydrates the skin but yet keeps oil at bay? This is definitely a winner. Huge thank you to The Body Shop for exceeding expectations yet again!

Purchase this online here.

What do you guys think of this product? Is it something you would buy?

Samples


If you have been blogging for a substantial amount of time or even if you are just a huge fan of cosmetics you may be familiar with this picture. Yup, this is what happens when you love make up and skin care: you end up with lots and lots of miniatures and free samples of products that you might quite like to try but just never seem to get round to it, and this isn't even half of my stash! I've decided that to get rid of these or at least put them to some good use I'm going to do a mini review on one product every week. Just so you know I saw someone else do this on their blog but I cannot remember for the life of me who it was so if you have an idea please let me know in the comments so I can credit them as I don't want anyone thinking I'm stealing their ideas! 

I know that some of the samples pictured don't really contain enough product for a full review, but a first impressions usually helps me decide whether or not I would actually go out and spend my own money on that product. I think it could also stop me going out and spending lots of money on things I don't really need before I go on holiday in two weeks haha! 

What do you guys think? Do you have a lot of samples lurking around? How do you put them to use?

Good Things Blemish Control Gel Mask


Way before I even started blogging I always had a rather unhealthy obsession with face masks. All I ever seemed to want to buy when I popped into Boots or Superdrug was whatever face masks were on offer, and I always secretly hoped that when I washed them off my skin I would see some sort of miraculous and instant transformation! Fast forward a few years and I am still buying them relentlessly hoping that I will someday find 'the one'. Sometimes this happens and sometimes it doesn't, but either way I don't think I will ever stop buying them.

I picked this one up from T K Maxx a couple of months ago, and until two weeks ago I had pretty much forgotten all about it and left it to fester among my huge face mask collection; which is currently taking up half of my bathroom (oops). I can't remember why I bought this but it aims to prevent breakouts so I can only assume I was feeling a little spotty on that particular day. It calls itself a 3 in 1 mask, but to be honest all the things it claims to do I would expect from a face mask product anyway; I certainly expect an anti blemish product to also be oil clearing, and the salicylic acid is what I assume does the oil clearing job, thus preventing breakouts. It can be a little off putting when brands hype their products up a little too much. 

Anyways, the product in itself I'm a little unsure about. I knew that this would not be a gentle or calming product in anyway when I read that it contained salicylic acid but as soon as I put this on it really did sting my face. The longer I left it on for the more red and sore my skin became, and to be honest it was really quite unpleasant. When I rinsed the mask off however, I was left with the most amazingly clean feeling and any spots I was suffering from had been dried out. So you see it does appear to work, but I have to wonder whether this is really doing my skin any harm as its a bit sore and altogether not at all pleasant to use. 

Overall, I don't think I would purchase this again as I already own products like this which clean my skin and prevent breakouts without leaving it red and sore. It's a shame as this was my first ever Good Things product and I really wanted to like it, but perhaps it just isn't for me and I think I would still be open to trying other products from the brand. 

You can purchase this here

Have any of you tried a product like this? Would you buy something like this?

Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Repairer Shampoo and Conditioner



In case you didn't already know I've been trying to get my hair back into good condition for some amount of time. I started dying my hair peroxide blonde when I was about 13, and although I loved it at the time it really was not a good look. The years went by and I dyed my hair every colour you can imagine without actually going down the whole rainbow child thing...not to say I didn't consider it. A year ago I even used a DIY dip dye kit to lighten my ends. 

When I stopped dying and using heat on my hair, and going for regular trims I saw a massive improvement in the condition of my hair. It was thicker, longer, and more manageable, and obviously a lot shinier. However, it wasn't quite as sleek as I wanted it to be and I still suffered from dry ends.

I started using paraben free shampoo to help it grow in faster and more healthily. I stopped when I noticed that it made my hair frizzy and dry, but that was only until I discovered the beauty of Ganier's Ultimate Blends Nourishing Repairer. I've used other shampoo and conditioner's in this range and unfortunately I just don't find they work all that well with my hair. This particular product is aimed at those of us with very dry/damaged hair, and contains avocado oil and shea butter! I noticed straight away after drying that my hair looked so smooth and sleek, and even my ends were less brittle. 

I'm so happy that I found this little duo just as I was giving up hope of ever finding the perfect paraben free shampoo!

Do any of you guys use paraben free shampoo? What are your tips for maintaining healthy locks?

July Favourites


I have been using so many lovely things this month that it has actually been quite difficult to narrow it down to just a few things for a favourites post, but I've managed to do so, and I really hope you all like the items that I have chosen!

Probably my most recent discovery has been the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! Please excuse the rather rude name as it is one of the best mascaras I've ever used for building volume and separating the individual lashes for a mega fluttery look! It's probably a little pricey as there are some great drug store mascaras on the market, but its definitely worth every penny! I have also been loving a new foundation in the form of Bourjois's 123 Perfect Foundation, which I have been wearing to absolute death in the warmer weather. I like to swap heavier bases for light coverage in the summer months and the colour correcting pigments in this one mean that I can do so while still feeling confident that all my nasty blemishes andskin imperfections are covered up. To apply this foundation I have been loving my Eco Tools Perfecting Finish Brush, which is extremely good quality and really does a great job of making my face look flawless, and fresh. 

I have two lip products in my favourites this month, and the first is The Body Shop Honeymania Lip Butter, which is super nourishing and tastes amazinggggg! (yup, I eat lip balm and what?!) I like to pop this on every night before I go to sleep and wake up in the morning with super soft and hydrated lips! I've also been absolutely loving a Mac Lipstick in Rebel which i got for my birthday! It's probably the prettiest purple/pink shade I own and everyone knows how long Mac lipsticks last! It's probably more of a going out colour, but that doesn't stop me wearing it every day haha! 

Onto body products I have been using The Body Shop Blueberry Body Butter which really smells incredible, and I don't think I need to explain to everyone how amazing and nourishing Body Shop Body Butters are! Although this one isn't on sale anymore so I'm sorry if you like the sound of this! Haha! I've also been trialing Bio Oil this month to see if it is as good as everyone says it is, and it has not disappointed! I've been using it mainly on my face to try and fade some red acne scars, but I also have a couple of stretch marks on my legs I am going to see if it works on! All in all this is an amazing product and definitely worth the hype as I can see such a difference in my scars already!

So there are all my favey products of the month? Have you used any of these?
