Avon Planet Spa Pillow Mist

Hello everyone!

I know I tend to do a lot of beauty reviews on here, but the review I have for you today isn't really beauty related, but is something that has genuinely been helping me a lot lately.

This isn't a new product. In fact I picked this Avon one up on Amazon for around £2.99, but the idea of a pillow spray is something I'd never really thought of before recently. As those of you who read my blog know, I've been going through a few health problems over the last 6-9 months. Bad rheumatoid arthritis flare ups over the last month or so have ended up in me feeling very restless and anxious on a night. I guess it's mainly to do with the pain making a good nights sleep extremely difficult. It's not just the pain, but the fact that I stress myself out worrying and over thinking the pain and the fact that I wont be getting enough sleep. It's a vicious cycle. 

I looked into pillow sprays, and was skeptical, however for £2.99 I decided this one was worth a go. It is a mix of lavender and chamomile oils, and I have to admit it really is relaxing. A few sprays on my pillow before I go to sleep, and I don't seem to feel as anxious or tense. It helps me fall asleep a lot quicker, and stay in a deeper sleep for longer without waking up every half an hour. 

It might all be psychological, like a placebo effect, but regardless of the reason, I know I've been sleeping better and feeling calmer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who struggles with sleeping at night, or even to any of you out there who suffer from anxiety. It can't hurt to try can it?! 

Any way, that's all for today guys, hope you liked the post. Let me know if any of you have tried other versions of this and what you though. Thank you for popping by! 

Love to you all x

The Skin System Micellar Cleansing Water

Hello guys!

Now those who know me will know that I LOVE a bargain, and am constantly on the look out for well priced beauty products that actually work. Today I have a great little product for you - The Skin System is a brand designed for ASDA, and is one that I had never heard of before. I was casually browsing the moisturisers a couple of weeks ago when this micellar cleansing water caught my attention, and this 200ml bottle was just £1.50. I think it was on offer and is normally £2 but still!

This particular one caught my attention not only because of the bright pink packaging (which I love) but also because of the writing highlighting that it is for dry/sensitive skin, and with my eczema I am always looking for new products that will calm as well as cleanse my skin, and I'm happy to say that this works. It also has added chamomile extracts to avoid that tight feeling that you can sometimes get after cleansing. 

I have been using this nightly for around 2 weeks now and I genuinely notice a difference, not so much in the look of my skin, but more in the overall feel of it. It takes my makeup off beautifully, and leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh and soft. All for only £1.50! 

I will definitely be buying this again! 

Let me know any other bargain skin care products you have found lovelies, and thank you for popping by to check out my blog. 

Love to you all x
