Beauty Sample Reviews for Hair & Body

I just wanted to write about a couple of samples I got in a women's health magazine this week.

The first was this l'oreal elvive extraordianry clay shampoo and conditioner

I had to write about it because my gosh it's amazing!! My hair hasn't felt soft in a long time and I didn't even have to put any argan oil on after if blow dried it.

Woke up this morning and it's really shiny and thick feeling I'm that impressed I'm going to buy the bottles from shop later. (UPDATE!! 1 year on nearly and I still use the clay shampoo its amazing!!!)

I also tried this garnier ultimate blends body lotion and although my skin feels deliciously soft and smells divine I'm really sticky and it claimed I could put on my clothes straight after where I am now 20 minutes later still thinking about pulling on my skinny jeans.... But lovely product it's kind of glowy which I like. But yeah I'm even sticky on my arms still.

Smoothie Bowl for Breakfast

I have been making smoothie bowls for a while now since I got my new blender at Christmas and replaced my winter porridge with a cold refreshing dish!!

Basically you can use what every you have in the fridge but a few of my faves are:

Almond Milk
Chia Seeds
Peanut Butter

Skyr Protein Yoghurt
Frozen blueberries an raspberries

I then top these with homemade granola and fresh fruit.

They are so filling so they put me on until lunchtime always. If I don't fancy it for breakfast I take it to work in the blender container and eat it for lunch as a yoghurt or it makes a good sweet dessert if your craving something after tea.

You can what ever you like there are so many variations.

I enjoy a few dates chucked in too or you can protein powder for consumption after a workout. 

I've also been eating an orange diced up for breakfast and feel like its helped my skin clear up much quicker too.

All my breakfast is washed down with a hot water and lemon juice -  a morning ritual I am addicted too.
