Simple Kind to Skin Moisturisers

I haven't posted much for about a month (argh!). I know not many people read this anyway but I've had a lot of homework and revision to do.

Something I really wanted to do in 2015 was to take better care of myself in general, including my hair and skin. This meant not using heat as much and going easy on the make up. Usually, I use the Liz Earle products (Cleanse and Polish followed by the toner and moisturiser) and although I love these very much, they can be quite pricey and sometimes I just fancy a change. In Sainsbury's recently, the Simple products have been on offer and so I decided to try their moisturisers.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting too much. I sometimes don't particularly like Simple products, I have sensitive skin yet I find some of them irritate my skin more than ordinary products do and others are so gentle that they don't do much. However, my faith has been restored.

 Here I have the Simple Kind to Skin Vital Vitamin Night Cream  and the Simple Kind to Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. 

First of all, the night cream. I actually first used this when my Liz Earle moisturiser had run out and it's all gone now. The first thing to note is that this cream looks and feels almost like jelly, as bizarre as that sounds. At first I was extremely skeptical as to if it would make my skin feel tight, which I've experienced with a few creams. However, I used this and really enjoyed it, as it is a night cream it doesn't absorb really rapidly but I don't look for that in a night cream particularly.
The morning after using this, my skin would feel lovely and soft and look bright and healthy, making my make up go on  easily and reducing the amount of foundation etc. I used.
The cream itself claims to include "multi-vitamins and skin loving ingredients" and to be fair, I think it lives up to its claims. The only problem I do have with this is that there isn't much in a pot, its only really 2/3 full and so it doesn't last ages. However, a little goes a long way and at £5.99 , its a great deal.

The light moisturiser, however, is my favourite of the two, mainly for its convenience. It claims to be the UK's No.1 and for value for money, I 100% agree. I picked this up on offer for £2 (I think reduced from £4.50) and WOW!
I never really moisturise before putting my make up on because it takes too long to soak in I'm always in a hurry in the morning! However, this soaks in really quickly and makes my skin feel extremely hydrated, whilst making my make up go on smoothly.

After this experience with Simple, I will definitely be re - purchasing and continue to use these wonderful products!

Thanks for reading :)

Sixth Form Tips

Hi everyone!

If you're in the UK you might be preparing for GCSE results day (good luck) and there's a good chance you'll be planning on starting sixth form in September - you may have already had an induction day or week.

A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking for tips about how to approach Sixth Form so I figured it was a concern for a reasonable amount of readers. Beginning P16 can be quite daunting and I wasn't really sure what to expect so I've put together this post to give you some tips that I've discovered over my time studying A Levels.

First up, a little bit of (school) background on me just in case you're new here: I'm a 17 nearly 18 year old about to start Y13 in September at a Sixth Form in a school in North East Derbyshire (although for arguments sake we'll just say near Sheffield). I have been at the school since Y7 however the Sixth Form is quite separate from the rest of the school and so nobody walks in to A Levels knowi…

The Books That Made Me

I'm a bookworm and proud. Before I made my YouTube channel private, I made a video defending the Twilight books (or rather all books) using the collection to argue my case that if a book gets someone to read, don't shame them for reading it. I stick by that absolutely. Any reading is beneficial to a person's development, especially when that person is a child.

I've been putting off writing this post for a while because quite frankly choosing my favourite books through the years is like choosing a favourite child and it's far too difficult. Therefore, please note that not all of my favourite books will be in here.

So maybe you're looking for some holiday reading material, inspiration for books to read to younger children or just fancy reading a nice, wholesome blog post. Here is my life through books.

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

This trip seems like a lifetime ago ye…
