The Cornerstone shaving subscription service is such a cool and amazing idea! You can select a unique combination of products (including a personalised razor!) and have a box delivered to your door, according to your own schedule so you will always have everything you need to keep your facial hair in shape. The best thing about this service is that you can pause your deliveries and change your product combination/ delivery date and you can cancel at any point. img_0311

Natural Yet Effective Skincare

The skincare industry is now a multi billion pound industry and there has recently been an important focus on the use of natural products/ingredients that still have effective results. I was so excited when I discovered SBC Gels! Founded in 1988, SBC create renowned ranges of powerfully active natural skincare and body care that really works. I received a few of their products (mainly the Vitamin ACE range) and have been using them for a while now and here’s what I think and what I’d rate the products based on their effectiveness.

This MiN New York Chapter 10 – Onsen fragrance makes such a beautiful gift. I instantly fell in love with the packaging and had to put it into a blog post! The fragrance is really summery and inspired by nature. With notes of Absinth, Bergamot, and Ambergris; this is a plant based fragrance and the pine needles are subtle yet strong enough to create a wonderful scent. You can find this fragrance at agencedeparfumerie.co.ukRead on to hear more about the beautiful packaging.

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.

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.

Paul Mitchell Construction Paste

I have thick, curly hair but have never wanted to apply heat when styling it, so I’m always on the lookout for new hair styling products that provide the right amount of hold and texture. I was so excited to try the Paul Mitchell Construction Paste that has an elastic hold so it provides enough strength to a hairstyle while still allowing for it to move and flow throughout the day!

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.

  4. Smooth the whipped cream over the custard, covering the whole dish.
