NIVEA Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream

Hello everyone! Today I thought I'd write a quick post about this new NIVEA Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream that I've been using. I've mainly been using this as a hand cream because I usually have quite dry hands during winter, so I'm constantly feeling the need to apply moisturiser! I have to say after only using it for a few days, I really like it.

The scent is so lovely, I'm really not a huge fan of moisturising creams that have an overpowering smell, but luckily this product is the complete opposite. It doesn't have a strong fragrance at all, it has a gorgeous natural smell which leaves my skin feeling fresh. The product is quite thick, so you only need to apply a little amount to have wonderfully soft hands! As it says on the product, it is 'quickly absorbed', which the product itself proves to be correct. All of the product soaks in within around 2 minutes for me, which is great because I don't like creams that linger on the skin and take about an hour to soak in as it's not practical!

It's a perfect size for my school bag too, so I can use this during the day at school if my hands need that extra bit of moisture in the autumn and winter months! I don't really have anything bad to say about this product, because it does its job nicely and really prevents my hands from becoming really dry.

Have you tried out this product? Would you recommend any other NIVEA products? Leave me a comment below if you wish, I'd love to find out your opinions.

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sunlight

I've been using the Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sunlight for a while now and I love it so much! It is very matte with no glitter or shimmer which I love because it is lovely for creating a natural looking glow all year round as well as being great for contouring.

The product is a really gorgeous natural bronze shade and is very affordable as it is a drugstore product! There is so much product provided; I've been using it for ages and as you can see I have only just hit pan! You only need to use a little amount for a subtle glow. The only downside to this product is the lid, for some reason (I don't know whether it's just me, haha) but the lid never seems very securely shut, so in a makeup bag I'm worried the lid will come off and the product getting ruined!

I usually tend to apply the bronzer on my cheekbones for a natural look, and sometimes if I don't want to wear too much makeup I sweep the product across my face with a powder brush for a natural finish that keeps me looking healthy and a little tanned! I would recommend this bronzer if you are looking for a very natural matte colour that gives you a gorgeous finish. However, if you're looking for something for with a bit more glitter and shimmer, then this one isn't for you.

Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean 4-In-1 Wash-Off Deep Cleansing Milk

Firstly, the packaging of this product is absolutely gorgeous. I love how much effort goes into the Soap & Glory packaging, it is so unique and girly and makes all their products looks so much more eye-catching. The pump applicator also makes it so much easier to get the product out of the bottle. I use this product mostly in the evening before I go to bed to remove my face makeup, so my foundation, bronzer, blusher, etc. I apply around 2 pumps of this all over my face, especially on areas which I am most likely to break out, to make sure my face is completely clean and fresh. I then rinse my face with warm water and pat it dry with a towel. 

The product claims it 'melts away makeup', which for me it does because I don't tend to wear particularly full coverage face makeup, so the product does its job in one application. However, the product says you can repeat the process if you need to, so if you're wearing a lot of face makeup then I would highly recommend this.

This product contains so many lovely ingredients, including peach extract which shines through in the smell of the product, which is so delicious and refreshing. In my opinion it smells like fruity peach yoghurt, which I personally adore. The smell is not too strong which is good because I don't really like strongly scented products, but it does leave a light peach fragrance after application which is really refreshing. The product is really easy to blend onto the skin, and it also feels very moisturising which makes my skin feel super soft and fresh after rinsing it off.

I have seen a few noticeable changes in some areas of my skin where I tend to break out a little more, which is great! So, I think it is safe to say that this is a product that I will very much enjoy continuing to use and will certainly be a product I will purchase again.

Do you own this product? What are your opinions of it?
