Clinique Super City Block Face Protector SPF 40

Clinique Super City Block Face Protector SPF 40 - £17.00 
Something a little different today, and it may seem a little out of place, judging by the current weather here in the UK(!) ..but yes, today I am reviewing sun protection.
After having recently becoming somewhat addicted to chemical exfoliation (within reason), I realised that I really needed to up the levels of SPF I put on my face daily, despite the lack of sunshine. Moisturisers and foundations with added SPFs are always a bonus, but ideally, I needed something stronger.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm

Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm - £34
After hearing so many good reviews about the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, I thought it was about time that I gave it a go for myself. My skin was on the mend after a particularly nasty breakout, and I felt like I needed a change in the cleansing department... something a little luxurious to give my skin a bit of treat. And then, it was in the sale. I snapped it up right away on Feel Unique for £28, a much more justifiable price than the original £34!
A few days after I purchased it, Fleur De Force did a review on various cleansing balms, with Emma Hardie coming out on top, not only leaving me breathing a sigh of relief, but also glad that I bought it before it sold out!

Brand Focus #2 - Burt's Bees

Hello everyone! I know this post is a tiny bit late, but here's the second part to my 'Brand Focus' series, dedicated to Burt's Bees. This wonderful natural cosmetics company was founded in 1984 by Roxanne Quimby, and has grown from strength to strength since then. In 1994, Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm was created, and remains as the company's #1 bestseller today.. (and one of my firm favourites!)

Outfit Post #1 - Bees and Boots

Dress - Zara, Denim Jacket - Topshop, Boots - Topshop, Bag - Zara, Watch - Daniel Wellington, Necklace - Accessorize
I thought it was about time I featured clothes on my blog, so here we go! This is probably one of my favourite outfits at the moment.
Sadly most of these items are now out of stock, which is a shame as I had planned to link them in this post. I'm sure most of them pop up on eBay quite regularly, so check on there if you're interested in any of these pieces! :)
