The importance of SPF in skincare

SPF is short for Sun Protection Factor and is found in many cosmetic products. Whether the sun is out or not, UV rays still hit our skin and can cause short/ long-term damage. In all honesty I didn’t realise how influential SPF is, especially its importance from a young age, in order to protect our skin and reduce the damage it receives. I did some deep research into SPF and UV damage and summarised it into this blog post for you all.

Slendertoxtea Superfoods Review

I previously reviewed the GREAT Slendertoxtea Day and Night Detox Teas (click here to read the review) so was really excited to review their new Superfoods range. These 100% Organic, Vegan and Gluten Free superfoods are a great addition to any diet to promote a healthier lifestyle. I opted for the Chia Seeds, Wheatgrass Powder and Acai Berry Powder. It is safe to say I LOVED trying these and will definitely be purchasing the others in the Superfood range.

Environ AVST Skincare Review

I’m back! After a long break due to uni exams I needed to get back to blogging. I was so excited to receive the Environ AVST1 moisturiser and the Environ AVST Hydrating Exfoliant Masque, at the recent Essential Health launch. I can’t believe I haven’t already been introduced to this amazing skincare line! You can’t buy Environ products online, however stockists like Essential Health do stock them.

Heavenly Dessert Recipe

This recipe I quickly threw together because an urgent dessert was needed when we had some guests over. It turned out a massive hit with everyone and is now my signature dessert,  so I thought I’d share the “recipe” with you all!

Ingredients:

  • Cake of your choice
  • 1 tin of Ambrosia Devon Custard
  • 1 tin of Sainsbury’s own brand custard
  • 284ml tub of Elmlea double cream
  • Icing Sugar (to taste)
  • Madagascan Vanilla (to taste)
  • Biscuits of your choice (I used digestives)
  • Fruit to decorate

Method:

  1. Cut the cake into thin slices and line the bottom of your serving dish.
  2. Pour both tins of custard over the cake.
  3. Add icing sugar and Madagascan Vanilla to the double cream and whip until a thick consistency.
  4. Smooth the whipped cream over the custard, covering the whole dish.
  5. Crush 4/5 biscuits and sprinkle over the cream, creating a layer of biscuit.
  6. Finally decorate with a variety of fruit and ENJOY!

I hope you all enjoy this quick and easy recipe and would love to see your interpretations!
