The Dermexa Range from Aveeno

My skin is mostly in good condition because I try and take good care of it. However, sometimes due to my medical conditions and the medications I take, my skin tends to go very dry and/or is inflamed. It usually lasts from a few days to a week before returning to normal. The main problems I face during such times are dry and itchy skin with rashes on my face and neck. At these times I need a really gentle yet effective skincare product to help combat the dryness without causing any further irritation to my skin. And so, I always seek out products that help alleviate the discomfort.

Scünci Hair Brushes

Scünci Hair Brushes
Scünci are a popular and innovative hair accessory brand whose products I am sure you must have seen in Boots, Superdrug or other stores. Their 'No Slip Grip' jaw clips are very popular mainly for their non-slip grip technology that provides comfort and all day hold. But did you know that Scünci also have a range of affordable hair brushes? I wasn't aware until recently and then Scünci sent me two products from their hair brush range to try.

Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment

In recent times, you would have probably seen a number of videos or posts about glossy charcoal masks. While charcoal is a good detoxifier, these peel-off masks can cause a lot more problems than you would imagine. And that is why I steered clear of them. However, I have not been missing out on the detoxifying benefits of Charcoal. I have been using Exuviance's Detox Mud Treatment which is a deep purifying mask and makes use of Japanese Binchotan Charcoal.

Formulated to instantly clarify and refine pores, Exuviance Detox Mud Treatment contains 23% active charcoal, French clay and a patented NeoGlucosamine blend among other ingredients and helps to remove debris and excess oil from the skin.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Body Range

Who doesn't love well-hydrated skin? Hydrated skin looks supple and healthy. In addition, well-hydrated skin is also less prone to irritations and other skin discomforts. And if you use makeup, then it goes better on hydrated skin as compared to dull, dry skin. The problem with though is that it is very easy for our skin to lose moisture. It could be due to a number of reasons - lifestyle & eating habits, health conditions or climatic conditions & pollution. So it is very important to take care of our skin to ensure it stays radiant and healthy all year long.

I am sure most of you would have heard of Neutrogena. They deliver skincare products that have been developed with help of dermatologists and address a number of skin care needs. The brand has more than 650 products worldwide in categories ranging from face & body care to sun protection and from anti-ageing products to cosmetics. Recently Neutrogena launched a new range called Hydro Boost Body. The star ingredient of the range is Hyaluronic Acid, a super hydrator.

Summer Scents : Aqua Manda & Aqua Citra

Summer is almost here. And along with changes in the wardrobe, it is also time to try out some new scents for the warm season. When I think of summer scents what comes to my mind is the balmy sea breeze, sweet tropical fruits, an exotic bouquet of flowers and refreshing, zesty fragrances. Featured in today's post are two such fragrances that will delight your senses and are sure to be your go-to scents throughout summer.

I have been trying out two summer-y fragrances over the last few weeks - Aqua Manda and Aqua Citra - and love them. Both the scents were popular in the 60s and 70s and were relaunched a few years back with a modern appeal.

The New Stay Cool Cookware Range from Stellar

Having tried a few Stellar products earlier (the Stellar Rocktanium range being one of my favourites), I can vouch for their amazing quality and long life. So, when Stellar released a new cookware range called 'Stay Cool' I knew this would be another good collection from them and it is. I was sent the Stellar Stay Cool 20cm Draining Saucepan to try and it has proved to be a very useful addition to my kitchen over the past few weeks.

Prestige Flowers in support of Cancer Research UK

Sending someone you know flowers when they are sick is a thoughtful gesture. Whether they are recovering from an illness or a procedure and whether they are at home or the hospital, receiving flowers is sure to make their day a little bit brighter. This gesture indicating that you are thinking of them, will surely make them feel better and stronger. Also according to psychologists, the scents and the explosions of colour in a flower bouquet reduce stress levels. So, it is a very good idea.

Prestige Flowers now offer a high quality flower delivery service in support of Cancer Research UK. They have a wide range of bouquets and when you choose to send loved ones a bouquet from their website you are also helping their cause to beat cancer as 25% of all orders are donated to different causes to help prevent and fight cancer.

Hydro Flask Review

Hydro Flasks are vacuum insulated stainless steel bottles. They come in 7 different sizes, with 2 different lid types and a range of colours and you can even mix and match and make your own custom Hydro Flask. We put one of the 21 oz (621ml) Hydro Flask to test and here is what we thought.

This was the first time we were using a Hydro Flask. I had seen some photographs of the flask earlier but had not actually used one. So, when I received the flask and held it in my hands, I was pleasantly surprised by its build quality - it felt sturdy but not heavy. The flask has been designed very nicely. It is made with 18/8 Pro Grade Stainless Steel and is BPA and Phthalate free. The flask outer has a sweat-free powder coat finish which I liked a lot. The flask came with a standard mouth insulated flex cap. You can opt for a Sport cap if you prefer that.

Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix Moisturiser

This is my first try from the brand Oxygenetix and I love it. Oxygenetix have a range of ground-breaking products that have been primarily designed to cover blemishes, support healing and help minimise or eliminate post-procedure scars. One of their key products is the Oxygenating Foundation which has the patented Ceravitae™ Complex, aloe and seven layer silica gel technology that forms a breathable matrix and helps supports new skin cell production and the healing process following aesthetic procedures or skin problems. In addition to the Oxygenating Complex, the brand also has a number of other products that help cover and improve a wide variety of skin problems. I tried out the Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix which contains a similar breathable, second-skin formula as Oxygenating Foundation and is said to oxygenate and promote growth of collagen, new skin cells and connective tissue in aging or compromised skin.

Bioglan Active Curcumin - High Strength Turmeric Supplement

Living with long-term inflammatory conditions can be very tough at times. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis a few years back. I have been on medication since then to manage joint inflammation and pain. In addition to the prescribed medication, I also resort to other things like physiotherapy, massage treatments and other alternative treatments for managing my symptoms. I had been reading a number of articles that detailed convincing evidence on the use of turmeric supplements in managing inflammation and joint pain.

I am a massive fan of face masks. Whether it is clay based ones, sheet masks or creamy face masks, I enjoy using them all. Two of my recent face mask finds have been from the brand Tropic Skincare.

So how did this second set of products fare? Read on.

I tried two masks from Tropic Skincare - the Deep Hydration Mask and the Face Lift mask. Let me start with the latter.

Slenderella Leaf Print Flannel Hooded Wrap

I have been waxing lyrical about the Slenderella Hooded Wrap to friends and family and not without reason. It is one of the softest and most comfy pieces of housecoat (or dressing gown as some like to call it) that I have ever used.

Susino XL Compact Navy and White FibreAuto Golf Umbrella

On the blog today I share our views about a hardy golf umbrella from Susino. Now I know, many of you might not find a review of an umbrella an enticing read but trust me with the abysmal weather we mostly face, this robust and good quality umbrella is a great one to have to cope with the British weather especially when out in the countryside.

Sailor Jerry limited-edition Spiced Rum

Sailor Jerry limited-edition Spiced Rum
Sailor Jerry recently launched a new limited-edition bottle design to celebrate the legacy of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins.

Norman Collins, a prominent American tattoo artist was popular for his bold and colourful tattoo designs especially for sailors; thus earning him the nickname "Sailor Jerry". Inspired by Jerry’s colourful tattoo designs, the limited-edition bottle features a gloss-black wrap and two pieces from Jerry’s iconic flash artwork - the eagle and the rose. The eagle speaks of strength and freedom while the rose of love. This is a reminder of Jerry’s early tattooing days inking fellow soldiers and sailors at his popular tattoo parlour in World War II-era Hawaii.
