Feather & Down Sweet Dreams

If like me you’re struggling to sleep in this oppressive heat then fear not as I’ve discovered a brilliant new brand and range of products that will help lull you into a peaceful sleep in no time.

This relaxing range of products have been infused with a luxurious blend of essential oils to help restore your body and calm your mind in preparation for a good night’s sleep.

This comprehensive range comprises of a Bath Essence (£7), Sleeping Salts (£8), Melting Shower Cream (£6), Body Oil (£8), Sleep Balm (£7), Sleep Butter (£8), Pillow Spray (£7), Calming Candle (£18) and Reed Diffuser (£18). 

So yeah, they’ve pretty much covered everything!

Firstly let me draw your attention to their prices. Brilliantly priced they are affordable and offer a touch of luxury without the price tag.

Lets start with the Shower Cream. This rich yet light cream is delicately fragranced with lavender and chamomile oil to calm, purify and help to improve your quality of sleep. 

This soft and aromatic scent is carried throughout the entire line.

The cream is gentle on your skin, non foaming and leaves you feeling like your using a moisturiser in the shower!

The Soothing Body Oil is a wonderfully light oil that is quickly absorbed and leaves your skin feeling silky soft and smelling beautifully fragrant.

The All Purpose Sleep Balm is my favourite product from the line and is a rich balm which is designed to be massaged into your pulse points before you go to bed to help you relax.

It gently melts into your skin and leaves a lovely relaxing aroma which certainly helps me to relax!

Finally there is the brilliant pillow spray. Spritz liberally over your pillow before you go to sleep and enjoy the delicate waves of scent envelop you and send you off into a blissful slumber.

I love this collection for so many reasons but mainly because it does actually work.

Even if you only used one product I’m convinced you’d notice a difference but use several combined and you will most definitely notice yourself feeling more relaxed and drifting off more easily.

Feather & Down Sweet Dreams range of products are available now from Boots.

Glamouriser Premium Hair System Ultra Styler

In the market for a new hair straightener? Take a look at Glamouriser’s Premium Hair Systems Ultra Styler.

This chic, sleek styler is crafted from titanium to deliver instant shine and smoothness to your hair without causing snagging or breakages.

This clever little lovely actually measures the plate’s temperature ten times per second to ensure that your hair is not exposed to as much heat and this in turn helps to preserve your hair’s natural moisture, leading to more healthier looking locks.

It possesses an advanced micro-processor which allows you to tailor your styling experience to your hair type.

 It features a touch panel which allows you to control the temperature of the styler, ranging from 110°C to 235°C and it heats up in just 15 seconds.

Pretty clever eh?

The styler itself is actually really lovely and light to hold, compact in size and easy to use and manipulate.

I just love that you have the ability to choose the desired level of heat on the styler with 5 different temperature settings, putting you in charge of how much heat you wish to expose your hair to.

It super easy to use, simply plug in then touch the temperature on the panel that you’d like to use and within 15 seconds its ready to use.

The plates glide through your hair gently and immediately leave your hair looking and feeling sleek, soft, silky and super shiny!

That’s a whole lot of ‘S’s!

A word of warning, like most stylers this one does take a while to cool down so make sure you leave it on the heat proof mat (which is included with the styler along with a heat resistant bag and pouch) when you’ve finished. 

For the safety conscious out there it also features an automatic safety shut off after 1 hour.

I haven’t a bad word to say about this straightener. If you love sleek, glossy locks then this is the styler for you.

The Glamouriser Premium Hair System Ultra Styler usually costs £119.99 but you can grab it for an incredible price of just £39.99 from Argos for a limited amount of time now!

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is the latest beauty product to take Instagram by storm!

This fabulously named body cream (actually pronounced as ‘boom boom’ in Brazil) harnesses the power of Amazonia ingredients to create a deliciously rich cream that helps to firm and tone your skin. And bum. Obviously.

Enhanced with South American Guarana (a caffeine rich plant which is 5 times stronger than coffee) this cream gives your skin the ultimate boost, stimulating circulation and tightening to leave your skin smooth, soft and helping to minimise cellulite.

Furthermore, a blend of cupuaçu butter, açaí and coconut oil provide superior hydration and moisturising properties without leaving your skin feeling heavy and greasy.

I was so excited to try this bad boy. Who wouldn’t want to try a cream called Bum Bum and who wouldn’t want a tight, toned butt!

The cream itself is beautifully rich yet light and silky in texture. A little goes a long way and it is absorbed really quickly without leaving your skin feeling oily.

It has one of the most gorgeous scents of any body cream I’ve ever used. It’s a soft, sweet, nutty- caramel-esq aroma and to my delight, its scent lasts for AGES after application, meaning I too smell yummy!

The cream itself is actually ever so slightly shimmery but I’m talking about in the most subtle way. It possesses the kind of shimmer which you can barely see but when it catches the light it makes your skin glow with radiance.

I’ve been using this cream daily for a week and applying it in clockwise, circular motions to help stimulate circulation and its safe to say that I’m addicted.

I’m addicted to its delectable aroma, its delicious richness and the way it makes me skin feel toned and gorgeous. 

I also think that its ever-so-slight iridescentness helps to reduce the appearance of my cellulite. Result!

Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is available now from Cult Beauty and costs £44 for 240ml.
