STEALING BEAUTY SLEEP AT NYR


The price reduction on Neal’s Yard Beauty Sleep Organic Spa Collection is a bit of a steal. From £47.50 to £33, the beauty sleep concentrate alone is usually about this figure. Saving over £10? Don’t mind if I do.

What it includes:

Aromatic Foaming Bath: a lovely Rose scented product that allows a very luxurious and relaxing bubble bath. This is pamper city.

Beauty Sleep Concentrate: which helps condition the skin over night and smells D-I-V-I-N-E. It moisturizes, replenishes and refreshes. I can see this one being a bit of a savior in the winter months.

Beauty Sleep Body Butter: turned out to be my favourite of the bunch. Again, this smells unreal and oh my gosh my skin felt amazing when I woke up.

Calming Organic Aromatherapy Candle: I actually already had the full size of this candle. I love to light it after work when I’m having a little down time, reading, watching tv etc, I find it quite restorative. In the spirit of the Spa Collection though, I lit this while I was bathing in the Aromatic Foaming Bath and together, the two are a bit of a relaxation power couple.

The Spa Collection provided me with oober relaxation, and I had a seriously good night sleep after trialling the products. I would definitely suggest treating yourself to this NYR Collection. While all the products are quality flying solo, I found that using all four together got me some real pampered beauty sleep.

Have you tried any of the Neal's Yard Spa Collections? I'd love to hear your thoughts...

COLLAGEN PAPER FACE MASK


I haven’t posted in a while, partly because of the beaut weather we’ve been having and partly because I’ve just discovered instagram (late to the party I know), but as I lay in the bath the other night, I popped on a collagen face mask for the first time and was so impressed I thought I’d share my finds…

If you’re into fast, effective and fuss free products, this is has got the lot. It looks a little Hannibal Lector but it’s worth the 15 minutes of creep. Just place the paper mask over a cleansed face, leave, then remove and rub in the residue.

Honed in Korea, this face mask is packed with active ingredients and collagen derived from carrots and it definitely left my skin plumped and perfected. It feels like something’s happening without being harsh.

Price: £10 for 5
Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Trehalose, Butyrospermum Parkii, Shea Butter, Polysorbate 60, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate, Crosspolymer, Xanthan gum, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Raffinose, Sorbitan Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Citrus Junos Fruit Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Camellia Sinesis Leaf, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Jojoba Seed Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Lavender Extract, Rosemary Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Peppermint Leaf Extract, Potassium Hydroxide, Hydrolysed Extensin, Sodium Hyaluronate

Quick, easy and effective, this mask will definitely be a regular on my shopping list. I’d go as far as to say this may be a mask favourite! Who doesn’t love a quickie…
