I say YES to cucumbers !

Myself and my mum like to follow the advice from the lovely Caroline Hirons, that you don't need to break the bank on a moisturiser. Although I'm sure its lovely to use one that costs an arm and a leg I would prefer to use something more affordable. So I have kept this is mind from that day and am always looking for something that is affordable and does what it says on the tin.

I found this whilst browsing around my local Boots and spotted this new section of 'Yes to' products. They have a range for all skin types depending on whether you have sensitive skin, normal to dry, combination and acne-prone, fine lines and wrinkles and lastly uneven skin tone. 'Yes to' are 95% natural and are paraben, SLS and phthalates free. I chose to go with the sensitive skin moisturiser as my skin can be a little unpredictable when it comes to new products and I am just best going for it if it's available. 

After using this for a week now I can honestly say I look forward to applying it in the mornings. The consistency is thick however when smoothed onto the skin you can almost feel it sinking in and leaves it feeling fresh and smooth. The product has a slight cucumber smell which on its own smell fresh and is a nice smell to apply first thing in the morning. Straight after applying the moisturiser I start my make up and this just leaves such a lovely feel to the skin that tint/BB cream/foundation just glides on and it feels like a match made in heaven. Whilst having this I've have stopped using a make up primer because this gives such a great make up base.

Large pea sized amount

Smooth and melts into the skin

Yes to sensitive skin moisturiser retails in boots for £11.99 which I don't think is a bad price at all. It's quite a big size and will last w while as I only need to use a large pea sized amount. I will certainly be re-purchasing it and will recommend it to family or friends who are looking for something along this description.  

Do you have sensitive skin? I would love to hear what product you use and whether its working for you. Have you got this and love it? Or is it not working so well for you? Or have you tried anything else from the ranges that 'Yes to' have?  Please comment bellow as I would love to know :)

Thank you for reading, see you Wednesday!

  2. I only use natural/organic skincare, so much more gentle for sensitive skin :) I love the Yes To lip balms but haven't tried many of their other products. Intrigued to try this moisturiser now you've mentioned how it's such a good base for makeup! x

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
