Lee Stafford Coco Loco

Lee Stafford is one of my go to high street hair brands, I adore the Argan oil range and now I've fallen in love with the Coco Loco collection, found in Boots stores. Here are my chosen favourites..

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Shampoo & Conditioner - £5.99 each
The perfect duo for keeping hair clean and soft, these two products are enriched with lauric acid to keep locks looking luscious for longer. The consistency isn't heavy on the hair and rinses out with ease, the shampoo doesn't lather as much as I'd hope but needless to say I love the results.

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Blow & Go Genius Lotion - £6.99
On towel dry hair I like to apply this product through the ends before drying and heat styling. The key ingredient is Coconut oil which helps to nourish and maintain moisture, leaving it soft and smooth. Hair appears sleeker and shinier instantly, protected against frizz. 

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Dry Shampoo - £4.99
I use this in between washes to refresh the hair of oily roots. It is incredibly lightweight and doesn't leave unwanted powdery patches on the scalp. Best of all it has a pleasing coconut fragrance that lingers through the day.

Bee Good Skincare

Bee Good Honey & Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser
Bee Good Hydrate, Smooth & Prime Serum
Be Good Lift & Brighten Eye Cream
Bee Good Plump & Firm Moisturiser

Bee Good has fast become one of my favourite skincare brands! Whenever I've had a skin crisis, their products have always rescued and revived the condition and appearance of my complexion. They are the only premium skincare brand to use British beeswax, honey and propolis in their ranges, as well as natural, botanical ingredients. Each product purchased contributes to the sustainability of UK Bee farms to ensure our bees are happy in the care of educated keepers.

I'm extremely impressed with my daily Bee Good skin routine, it enables me to cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate my skin instantly and I've noticed an vast improvement in my skin tone. I'd recommend this brand to anyone, especially those with sensitive or blemish prone skin.

What I got for Christmas 2016

REN Skincare
REN is one of my go to's for skincare, so I was grateful to receive this trio of products which includes the Foaming Cleanser, Hot Cloth Cleanser and the Invisible Pores Detox mask. These are a great addition to my New Year beauty routine.

Zara handbag
An adorable little bag for my everyday essentials, great for wearing on the weekend and on evenings out. It has gold detailing with an adjustable chain strap and compliments any outfit with it's classic design.

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow
Even though this was on my Christmas list, I never expected to actually receive it, it was a treat indeed. This beautiful duo gives my skin natural warmth and a glow that lasts all day, it looks so elegant in my make up bag and I hope it lasts me right through the year.

Topshop faux leather jacket
I wore my last leather jacket to death and seriously needed a replacement. This one from Topshop is super comfortable, I chose the next size up to it was a little over sized for layering. I'm looking forward to styling with this in 2017.

Topshop bomber jacket
I've wanted a bomber jacket for a while now and at last I came across the perfect one! This Topshop gem is lined with a soft faux fur, giving extra warmth on the coldest of days. It is a gorgeous burgundy colour wearable from Autumn through to the Spring.

What was your favourite gift this Christmas?

The Body Shop Drops of Light Pure Resurfacing Liquid Peel

*PR sample

The Body Shop never disappoints with it's endless selection of of skincare, I especially love the Vitamin E, Camomile and Tea tree oil ranges. I was highly impressed with the introduction of 'Drops of Youth' so of course I was keen to see what 'Drops of Light' had to offer.

I was given the Drops of Light Pure Resurfacing Liquid Peel to trial, this product aims to brighten the skin to give a more healthy glow. On first use, I was amazed at how well it removed dry, dead skin in an instant - a life saver in the cold, winter months. Initially I loved how smooth it left my skin each time but unfortunately it has caused my skin to break out rather aggressively. I think this is the result of the peel lifting dirt and oils from every pore to the surface. 

The treatment has a light, creamy consistency that's easy to rinse away. It's recommended to use 2-3 times per week, however I would suggest to use as a weekly treatment to avoid drying out the skin. It will be available for purchase in the New Year!
