Forever Living

Hello its me again

I know it’s been a long time since I last posted, but life has got in the way as usual, not only have I been on holiday but I’ve also been promoted!

I want this post to be about products that many of you may not be familiar with, which is why I have stepped up to the plate to deliver this ESSENTIAL information. Because once you go Forever, you never go back. I was kindly given some tester products from a Forever Ambassador, who also happens to be my lovely boss. These products included; a Marine Mask, Aloe Scrub, Aloe Moisturizer. In this post I’m going to review each one based on the week that I was given to test them.Aloe Scrubb.png

Aloe Scrub was the first product that I used as my face just needed a good old cleanse before anything! My skin is very sensitive so I often stay away from harsh scrubs that use plastic microbeads, as they just make my face look red and blotchy, which isn’t really my go to style. I was a bit apprehensive, but away I Aloe Scrub.pngwent. I was so pleasantly surprised when instead of making my face sore and sensitive, it felt unbelievably soft afterwards and my skin tone was fairly even, rather than being horribly red. This is because the scrub uses microspheres of jojoba which just roll over the skin to pick up the dead skin cells, meaning that it was gentle on my skin. If I had time in the mornings I would use it everyday!

I have previously used the cheap 99p face masks, from the wash off ones to the peel off one (which I  do NOT recommend), I have used them all! When I was given this product it was the one I was most excited to try, as I’m pretty much an expert. I was told that when you first put it on it will start to sting a little, which was so useful to know as typically if a face mask started to sting I would have washed it off very quickly. This shows just how important it is to speak to one of the fantastic representatives beforehand, because they know the ins and the outs of the products! After I had washed it off my skin, WOW was my only reaction, I mean so soft! The softness actually lasted for days with a little helping hand from some moisturiser. I would recommend this product to people with dry skin, and to use this product around two or three times a week. It costs around £18, which is an amazing price considering you only need a little bit, so will last months on end. Who puts a price on good skin anyway?

I have suffered from Eczema for as long as I can remember and different things tend to flare it up. So after I got back from my holiday in the sun, my skin was very dry and in places a little burnt. I have tried every product under the sun for my Eczema, yet nothing seems to do the trick. I started using Aloe Lotion before I got into bed and it instantly stopped the urge to itch, as well as reducing the redness. It works by creating a barrier on the skin which locks in moisture, which my skin was in desperate need of. I’m not saying my Eczema was suddenly cured, but I am saying that after using it regularly the moisture in my skin has significantly improved, which is a massive plus!Aloe lotion

Apart from these products that I was given to trial, I am also an avid user of the Forever Aloe Gel and the Aloe Propolis Crème. The Aloe Gel was honestly the first thing I reached for when I got home from holiday because my skin just needed a good moisturising, and this is my go to product! I literally smothered my body in it! Also when I was on holiday I took some small sachets of the Aloe Gel, which was instantly stolen by my family members who got sun burnt, as it is an excellent calming moisturiser, which can cool even the hottest of sun burn. I would also HIGHLY recommend the Aloe Gel as a makeup primer, as I often use it before my foundation to keep it firmly in place for the day, a much cheaper alternative as it does everything in one bottle.

The Aloe Propolis Crème is a product I use to help out the dry, Ezcema prone areas on my face. I also tend to now use it instead of a heavy foundation, because I found that my foundations were causing me to break out, so I decided not to use it for a while. Instead I have been using the Propolis Crème on my face to moisturise, as well as give me a beautifully even skin tone, and it has been working wonders.

So, as you can see I am very much a fan of the Forever Living Products. They produce a massive range of products from health and fitness to beauty regimes, so I suggest you get over to the link below right now, or even contact a local Forever Living representative as they are always eager and ready to introduce new people to their products. The passion they have makes the products that much better.

Be unique, be Forever Living.

Jack Wills-Spring Collection

Hello once again,

As you all know I work at Jack Wills, so I am constantly surrounded by their new spring collection, so I thought I’d take this perfect opportunity to showcase my fa10001212002vourite pieces. I’ve chosen five items from the new collection, and this will be both mens and womens, because why not!

The first item I’m going to speak about is the Castley Embroidered top in white. This top does also come in navy, but the white shows the flower embroidery on the neck line so clearly and is perfect for the spring sunshine. It is a light weight blouse that can be worn out for dinner with a skirt or black jeans, as it is definitely classy enough for date night.
But it would also look amazing with a pair of worn jeans, fit for a day of shopping with the girls. It’s on trend with the embroidery, that has taken retail by storm this season!

My next favourite is a staple item for every girls wardrobe, and a go to piece for day to day wearing. A classic pair of Fernham Highwaisted Skinny Jeans in pale blue. They do also come in mid blue, indigo, dark indigo and black, but pale blue always comes out in spring. These jeans are by far the softest jeans I have ever purchased! They are also very forgiving, so you can go for a meal out in these jeans and not feel like you have to unbutton after that last bite of dessert. They allow for a bit of stretch, but do not lose their shape at all, even after being washed numerous times. Also their colour never fades, which is a problem we have all occurred. I know that Jack Wills jeans aren’t often what people go to when they need a decent pair of jeans, but this will be the best investment yet. Give them a try, you won’t regret it!

If you’re looking for the key piece for your spring wardrobe, then look no further than the Cratfield Wax J10001213402acket in olive. This coat is the most beautiful creation! The colour of this jacket is traditionally British countryside, fitting with the brand’s reputation, so perfect for those late afternoon walks. However, it can also be teamed up with a blouse to create a going out look. There is also the option of a navy version, but khaki is so in this season that I would personally lean towards the olive. It’s perfect for the typical rainy weather expected in spring as it is shower proof, yet is fairly light weight so when the weather finally warms up it will be a go to piece. It is definitely worth the £99 investment as it is a timeless product that will never go out of fashion, so will be loved year to year.

I have purposefully chosen three items that would go perfectly together to make a foolproof spring outfit!

Now time for mens. The all time favourite from the Jack Wills men collections has t10001187304o go to the Marlow Cable Crew Neck Jumper in khaki. It does also come in a variety of other colours, such as camel and navy, but the khaki looks so beautiful! It is a slim fitting jumper that adds a little something special to any mans wardrobe. This is because it can easily be t
urned into a formal piece by teaming it with a shirt or even a blazer if they are feeling adventurous. Jack Wills have also worked tirelessly to ensure that the jumper can now be machine washable, meaning that it saves you being worried about shrinking the jumper, which is never ideal. This jumper, I can honestly say, fits all body types due to the durability of the material, so is a perfect gift if you are struggling for gift ideas.

My finally chosen piece from the mens collection is the Wadsworth Oxford Plai10001195103n Shirt in Sky Blue. A mans wardrobe is not complete without a decent shirt! I specifically chosen this colour as it will add a bit of spring to an outfit, but isn’t too overpoweringly bright and colourful, as it’s not summer yet guys (definitely not if the weather is anything to go by). This shirt is also a little thicker than your typical shirt, so can be worn on its own and still keep them warm. The website describes this shirt as having a ‘streamlined fit’, which in basic terms means its slim fitting, so can easily be deemed office worthy, as well as being an ideal colour for going out, smart/casual.

These items are ABSOLUTELY not the only key pieces that Jack Wills have to offer this season, so I would definitely recommend getting onto their website or into store to see what else they have. I may be a tad biased…but Jack Wills has more to offer than people have previously presumed. It has flourished into a diverse brand, and is ready and raring to be YOUR go to brand.

Happy shopping
