Birthday at the #GoodShipBenefit

To celebrate my birthday I decided to go with two of my best girlfriends to Benefit's #GoodShipBenefit at the R.S. Hispaniola, on the River Thames. We enjoyed the most delicious cocktails with a spectacular view of the London Eye at sunset. Served and greeted by such a lovely crew, we had the perfect evening of giggles, girl power tunes and the best Espresso Martinis ever! Even better, we each received a sample of the Roller Lash mascara which is amazing for length and definition!

Have you been on board the #GoodShipBenefit?

REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist

REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist - £24.00

When I returned from holiday, it wasn't long before my skin started to take a turn for the worst due to the city pollution that I am exposed to everyday. REN is one of my favourite skincare brands and when I saw this new launch I thought it was worth the investment especially with my skin going through a post holiday crisis.

The Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist has been developed to protect the skin from the ageing effects caused by environmental damage. Oxidative stress to the skin causes premature ageing due to harmful free radicals in the atmosphere. This mist helps to increase the skin's natural defence, protecting it from further irritation. It's light consistency means it is wearable with moisturiser and even on top of your make up. I have been using this everyday in the mornings before work and although I couldn't say there has been a dramatic change in the appearance of my skin, I'd like to think it is acting as a shield and doing my skin more good than further harm. Natural, antioxidant ingredients such as Zinc and Sophora Japonica Flower work together to boost the skin to keep it guarded all day long.

Grounded Coffee Body and Face Scrub

Grounded Coconut Body Scrub - £15.00
Grounded Coconut & Lime Face Scrub - £8.95

If you've read my blog for a while, you'll know I swear by coffee scrubs! I have always made my own, read here to find out how. The only nuisance is, is that home made scrubs are prone to getting mouldy when kept in the bathroom and most of it goes to waste.

I had first discovered Grounded when I saw the brand's pitch on BBC's Dragons Den and I'll be honest, as much as I liked the product I thought I was better off making my own but with the trouble of maintaining my self made scrubs curiosity got the better of me. I'd noticed Grounded making an appearance in Boots stores and I was intrigued by the variety of the range. After some thought I decided to treat myself and place and order for one body scrub and a facial scrub - both coconut obviously!

Since my purchase, I have absolutely loved these products and it's reassuring to know that they will stay fresh over time. The face scrub has been a dream, I use this twice a week as an exfoliant mask and I have noticed my skin has become baby soft and breakouts have cleared faster than usual. I like to use the body scrub on the back of my legs to tackle cellulite and to buff my body all over to prepare my skin before tanning. The fragrance of the scrubs isn't over powering and I admire how much natural ingredients goes into them. These do make a little bit of a mess in the bath and shower, so be prepared - but it's so worth it!

Will you #GetGrounded?
