My Top 3 Natural Face Treatment Products

I've only recently started using face masks and scrubs on a regular basis but by golly does my face love me for doing so! I look forward to my Sunday night's when work is finished, I'm cosy in my pj's, Netflix is on and I can raid my skincare box of goodies and have an evening of indulgence and pampering! So in this post I've put together my top 3 favourite products I've been using a lot of recently...

*1. For Richer For Porer by Laidbare
This mask is great for reducing the appearance of imperfections and pores and to do so, it uses a blend of different natural ingredients...
Kaolin Clay draws out impurities and toxins
Japanese Seaweed extract detoxifies and smooths skins
Shea Butter gives hydration and conditions skin
Liquorice helps minimise inflammation and also gives the mask a great smell!
Rose Water soothes irritation

 *2. Fruit Enzyme Face Scrub by MyChelle
This face scrub is packed with natural ingredients all free from parabens, chemicals and artificial colours *woohoo!* A combination of dual skin polishers and dissolving enzymes quickly exfoliate dead skin and unwanted debris in pores. Jojoba beads and bamboo stem powder polish the skin without irritating or tearing the surface and because of this your skin is left feeling super soft and clean. This scrub also has a wonderful zesty fruity fragrance....which is 100% natural!

*3. Intense Hydration Treatment Mask by Burt's Bees
This has to be my favourite face mask at the moment, you apply it thickly and then after 10 minutes you wipe the excess away with a cotton pad and rub the rest of the mask into your skin (which means no getting up to rinse your face over the sink....you can quite happily do this from the comfort of your bed!) I use this mask once a week, sometimes more if I feel my skin needs that extra bit of moisture, and each time I'm left with incredibly soft and hydrated skin!

What are some of your favourite at home facial treatments?

Back to Work!

top: H&M CONSCIOUS | skirt: HAND ME DOWN| shoes: GOLDEN PONIES | sunglasses: ALDO | jewellery: VINTAGE 

Helloooo there! How's your week been? I hope you've all managed to catch a glimpse of the lovely weather! I'm currently sat writing this up in a pair of shorts, my skin radiating the scent of coconut sun-lotion...ahhhh summer is here!
This outfit was taken the other day, I've started working full time now and so I have little time for blogging which means I will be snapping and typing and posting whenever I have the time, which may mean sporadic posting, which I apologise for! But work is only temporary, I'll finish in time for starting my final year of University in October, but for the time being, I need to get some dolla for rent and for my lifestyle in which I totally live beyond my means...but it's summer.....so regular cocktail lunches are obligatory.....right?

Thanks for reading!

The Perfect Summer Bag

One of my wardrobe essentials for summer is a versatile bag. One I can use for shopping, day trips to a beach or picnic and one that will fit everything I need! This little ray-of-sunshine-of-a-bag is from Seasalt Cornwall one of my favourite ethical fashion brands. It comes in four colours, but this mustard yellow was my favourite, it's really roomy, has an inner zip pocket for the important stuff and a drawstring fastening. . . but best of all is the price . . . £16! 

I've been using it for about a month now and it's still in perfect condition, it's been one of my most thriftiest and practical purchases this year and I can definitely recommend it!

What do you look for in your perfect summer bag and have you found it yet? Comment below or tweet me at @dimplesdiaries !

Summer Basics

SHOES & SUNNIES: Aldo JEANS & TEE: H&M Conscious  

When it comes to fashion I'm quite a girly girl, but don't get me wrong, I still love throwing on a pair of jeans and a plain t-shirt every once in a while, especially when the jeans are made from recycled denim and the t-shirt is 100% organic cotton! I picked up these items from H&M's eco line, and although there's only a disappointing one style of jeans to choose from, there's plenty of basic tee's and vests made of entirely 100% organic cotton up for grabs which I most definitely took advantage of!

When the suns out, comfort is always number one on my list and this combo is great for running errands in the morning . . . black shades on and latte in hand. 
It's the perfect get-up-and-go outfit!

What's your go-to outfit on a summers day?
