NEOM DUPE! WESTLAB DETOXING SALT BODY SCRUB & BATH SOAK

Hello Beauties!
I haven't been on the blog in a little while and it's a mixture of being super busy at work and working on a new venture, which I really want to make work as it's such a feel good project. Daniel also had a knee operation recently, so I've been on hand to help him get around and making sure he's okay. Today, I wanted to talk about a new find from home bargains, which is a dupe for one of my most favourite products. Anyone that knows me or has read my blog for a while will know that Neom Organics are one of my favourite wellbeing brands. their products are incredible and the quality is about as high as you can get, but of course that means they can be a little pricey. Despite being worth it in my opinion, I have found a dupe that is a lot cheaper and a great way to add a little relaxation to your day without breaking the bank. 

I buy Westlab Salts a lot for the bath, but I didn't realise they did scrubs and a few other products too. during my recent trip to Home Bargains i stumbled across their Himalayan Salt Scrub with Lemongrass and Mint. I love anything to do with Himalayan Salt and one of my favourite things I own is my salt lamp, which makes my bedroom feel so calm and welcoming. I wasn't expecting to be as wowed by this scrub as I am, it has similarities to the Neom Great Day Scrub as it has a super uplifting scent and feels deeply moisturising from the second it touches your skin. The Neom scrub is sugar based, which is more gentle than the Westlab salt version. However, as long as your skin isn't too sensitive this scrub will make the perfect companion in the shower or as a wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating bath soak. 

Overall, I think the Neom Great Day Scrub will take a lot of beating, but I'm glad I've found such an amazing dupe, which can be found for under £5 in Home Bargains compared to the Neom version which is £34. I would love to know if you've tried this product or have another favourite you would recommend?

Lots of Love

Summer Skincare | By Heather Nixon | #BloggersRecommend

Hi, I'm Heather and today's guest post is all about the skincare I'm loving this spring and that I'll be using throughout the summer months too. My skin is typically very dry and sensitive but during the spring/summer months, it's more normal and a little oily so I need to switch up my skincare for each new season.

La Roche Posay Eau Thermale
La Roche Posay have a fantastic range of skincare that it ideal for those with sensitive skin, particularly eczema, which is what I sadly have. One of their products that I love especially at this time of the year is their thermale water spray which I use as a instant toner and as a refreshing facial spray during the hotter English spring days. We've had quite a few hot and humid days recently so I've been using this water spray almost everyday - it's so refreshing and cooling!

Caudalie Instant Detox Face Mask
I know that sheet masks are everywhere but I prefer using creamy wash off masks and one of my favourites over the past couple of years is the Caudalie Instant Detox mask which I use on my t-zone when my skin is feeling oily or congested. The mask is pink in colour, it's very effective and dries down on the skin revealing your pores which makes me feel as though it's working well.

Frenzyderm Active Block SPF 25
I'm not the most diligent when it comes to SPF as sometimes it can definitely irritate my skin and living in England, we don't think we need to use SPF as it's typically raining but using sun protection is definitely important. Thankfully I've found a quick, easy and fuss free SPF that doesn't irritate my skin, leave a white cast or have a greasy texture in the Frenzyderm Active Block. It's so easy to use, I love the pump dispenser and it helps to protect my skin from sun damage which is needed especially during the spring and summer months.

Neals Yard Deliciously Ella Rose, Lime & Cucumber Facial Moisturiser
Lastly, is not only summery in terms of it's packaging but the scent as well! I have been using this lovely moisturiser on and off (along with the equally as gorgeous cleanser) for a while and it always leaves my skin so smooth, moisturised and refreshed. The moisturiser is lightweight but it provides enough hydration for my dry skin without leaving my skin feeling heavy or greasy. It's part of the Neals Yard and Deliciously Ella collaboration and it has the most wonderful, floral and fresh scent so it's perfect for the spring and summer months. 
Thanks,
