Kiss the Moon Luxury Rose & Frankincense Soya Wax Candle.

Hello Beauties & fellow candle lovers!

In the crazy days of the social media circus so many of us find it almost impossible to stop out minds from racing and being able to switch off so we can sleep, it is hard because when you turn your computer off and reach for the tv controls and the blue light from tv’s, computers, phones, this blue led light is a huge part of keeping us awake on top of the stresses of modern day life.

This is my second Kiss The Moon candle now and they are just fantastic for scenting my bedroom beautifully at bedtime and helping me to switch off. Made with 2 fragrances I absolutely love … Rose which is so soothing, it benefits the mind and the soul. It is mellowing on your mind cutting down stress and it is soothing too, a cup of rosey lee made with rose petals can help with stress, we use it in face oils, face mists and all aspects of Soothing our body and skin, it is also extremely beneficial on the mind too.

“Rose is sent to earth by the gardeners of paradise for empowering the mind, the eye and the spirit.”

Plus a real favourite of mine Frankincense which is renowned for helping to banish negative thoughts, helps balance out the mind clearing space to allow you to get a better nights sleep. It is also a superb healing oil on skin too and has been used for centuries to heal wounds it is very medicinal.

The combination of these 2 powerful natural essential oils in this candle are a real winning combination, the fragrance is addictive, so rich and enticing and truly is good for the soul in so many ways. I also have it in a room mist too haha! Oh and a bedtime hand cream so nourishing at bedtime and as we sleep with out hands close to our faces so as the cream warms the beautiful oils we inhale the wonderful scent again. It is enticingly romantic and beautiful!

So now I get to talk about the glass!! The glass is a stroke of real genius in my opinion because it looks like a very dark navy/black but when your candle is lit you can see the lovely warming, clean, healing yellow flame through the glass, it flickers and dances around the glass and the logo like a big old moon moon dancing in and out of the clouds in the night sky. It is mesmerizing and in my opinion this is what takes this candle to another level.

I find some bedtime candles too bright, I don’t know why, but they can hurt my eyes when I am tired. With this glass I get beautiful blues and purples and some pinks coming from this glass when I am watching it in bed from different angles.
It really is stunning and for that reason along with the heavenly fragrance makes this a real winning candle for me and a scent I will keep going back to because my body and mind love the fragrance too.

Kiss the Moon are an Eco Luxe brand that specialise in sleep products, they have used the best soya wax in this candle and high grade essential oils and it shows. The wax is beautifully creamy and you can see the quality of the oils within the wax.

I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love this candle, the packaging is also exquisite, you just know by look and feel that this is a very special candle!

NuBo White Diamond Ice Glow Mask is incredible!

Hello Beauties,

I hope you are all and not starting to freeze as the temperatures start to drop! The dark winter days have begun and it is dark so early now! I have the vitamin D dug out and making sure I take it every day.

NuBo Skincare is advanced skincare technology that is lightweight, fast, super effective, free from all chemicals and nasties and still manages to really take your skin to another level.

It is a fast world we live in and we want skincare that gives us an immediate beneficial effect on our skin. We need to be uplifted, refreshed and ready to go in a very short space of time. We want everything now and we want to see it has worked!

This is the mask you need!

It contains Micro-Encapsulated Oxygen to calm and regenerate the skin, Golden Root to energize cells by upping their intake of oxygen, Micronised Diamonds for a beautiful Luminosity and Fresh Cut Rose to boost your mood .. it is incredibly clever skincare that leaves you radiant and glowing.

I have just had a lovely bath and used my NuBo Ice Glow Mask .. oh boy! This has to be the most powerful face mask I have ever used. It is a wake-up call for face, body, and mind .. it is incredible!

You start off by taking a hot clean cloth and gently steam your face to open your pores and get your skin ready to get the best results out of this mask. I think I may say now it is not for very sensitive skin.

Once you have opened your pores you apply a thin layer of this mask and immediately you feel the icy blast from this mask starting to work. You feel like the Ice Queen and like singing a few lines of ‘Let It Go!’ lol. Or you have just stepped through a time warp and opened a door to the Antartic!

You leave it on for 10/15 minutes and the results are instant. My skin feels like glass, it still has an icy tingle. My skin looks brighter, skin tone and firmness are vastly improved. I have a lovely youthful glow and I not only feel I look younger but my brother even remarked on how good my skin was looking! (shocker).

It actually helps to release the tense muscles we get from stress, leaving skin smoother and looking a lot more youthful . How many skincare brands can make that claim from a mask .. not many!

What I really love is it erases tiredness, tiredness is the bain of my life. We all seem to be tired these days through one reason or another, so a total pick me up and ai mean a real ‘pick me up’ that takes tired skin and frazzled mind and completely resets it!

Please note this is not a mask you would use and then go to bed. This is a mask you would use before a big night out to look your very best. Or if you are in a hurry, tired and need a super wake up for yourself and your skin before a party or a big meeting where you want to dazzle and impress!

A mask that does all this is indeed a considered purchase but it honestly does so much it just blows me away. I can see why it is in the Times top 100 Beauty Products as it completely overhauls tired skin and leaves you feeling like you have had a beautician working on your face for over an hour and them some.

NuBo skincare is sold in Harrods or you can buy directly from the Nubo Website.  At £100 for a 50ml pot, you should get around 25 masks (some get more). That makes it a lot more affordable when you break it down.

Add all this together and add in the fact it is paraben free, SLS free and free of all other nasties I feel this is super intelligent skincare that really works. I thought so much about how I would describe this mask and how  the price point would affect that .. but every time I use it I find something new about it and how good it is!

Have you heard of Nubo Skincare? It is pushing the boundaries in the skincare world with extremely clever cosmeceutical  products that give an immediate boost to your skin, putting together the latest technologies to bring you products that work in a flash!

That is it, for now, folks

Take care

Elemis Quiet Mind Relaxing Bath Elixir

Hi everyone :-),

When i need my head clearing, my fibro pains are bad, or i just  need to regroup, chill and relax, this is the scent i love to relax in!

The heady scents of Eucalyptus, rich and spicy Lavender ,  patchouli, ho wood and shea butter make it an addictive combination that i keep coming back to time and time again, for me its like a treatment for body and mind as it can really help both so much.

I associate this scent with pure relaxation. it really does soothe an achy body and ease a stressed mind, this is one of my products i will not be without, when i finish a bottle….i am always making sure i have another lined up, for me it is pure decadent luxury and it is highly addictive 🙂

Once  capful of this hits the hot water and the aromatic oils  fill not only my bathroom but the whole flat with that wonderful scent , i know it really is going to ease my pains and my mind and hopefully let me get some sort of nights sleep,  the scent just sends me to a happier place …Eucalyptus is really known for clearing the mind and easing it, high grade Lavender oil really has the most wonderful spice kick to it to relax and aid sleep

I have the Temple Balm too which i use on my temples and wrists so i can keep getting a whiff of the scent all night long, it is a pretty powerful head clearer, great to use on a stuffy head, blocked sinuses or a cold even, it a real head clearer!

I olso have the pillow(lol) spray too but i don’t think i can get the pillow spray anymore for some reason *sob*,  which is a shame because as you can tell its a scent i am pretty much hooked on lol, makes your bed linen smell amazing!

Well those are my thoughts for today! What clears your head, relaxes you and helps you to get some sleep over a period of stress ?

Bye for now
