Health, Fitness & Skincare Journey

One of my new year resolutions was to take my fitness and general health very seriously. Last year, I saw the consequences of not being fit, and I never want to experience any of that again. The body pains and the extra weight were not my cup of tea, so I rather be fit and healthy!

One of the issues with working from home is that it is so easy to be on your laptop, on the sofa all day, which is horrible for the body as you can imagine.

These days, I have been going on daily walks/runs; I easily go pass the 10,000 recommended daily step and I am loving it. I feel better, I look better and I am happier. I guess being fit has a way of doing that to you, plus the amazing scenery at the moment is priceless.

 

 

 

Apart from having a balanced diet, I have also been taking vitamins supplements, and trying to get as much beauty sleep as possible. I am currently taking Vitabiotics WellWoman Vitamins Supplement and Natures Aid Chewable Vitamin C, and I think they are both doing the job, I just need to remember to take them everyday.

 

 

So health and fitness aside, being in my 30s also means I need to step up my skincare routine, and start experimenting with various anti-aging skincare products, which is what I am doing at the moment. I have a few anti-aging products I am testing out and I will be reviewing soon, so keep your eyes open.

The way I see it, health, fitness and skincare are always going to be a journey, and not a destination, because they never end.

How is your health, fitness and skincare routine? Any major changes this year? Do sound off in the comments section below, and please remember to share. Thank you.

Product Review: Original Source Shower Gels & Boots Botanics Eye Roll

I bring to you some products I have been using lately. I have been using these Original Source Shower Gels & Boots Botanics Eye Roll for weeks, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them, especially the shower gels.

I have used all the Original Source Shower Gels, and I do love every one of them, but these three right here are my favourites – Lavender & Tea Tree, Vanilla & Raspberry and Lemon. I am also very fond of the Mango Shower Gel, but didn’t get to photograph it.

Here is the product description –

Original Source is made with natural plant extracts and authentic fragrances found from all aspects of nature.

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. 100% natural fragrance.
  2. Tested on humans, and not animals.
  3. Very affordable at £1 each.
  4. Easily accessible at Boots, Asda, Superdrug, Morrisons, and many other stores.
  5. They all smell amazingly good, and lather quickly.
  6. I love the simple packaging.
  7. Feels great on my skin, and leaves it feeling clean and soft.

CONS

None.

I can’t fault this Original Source Shower Gels. They are the real deal, and there is a flavour for everyone, I think there are about 13 flavours available. I will be buying these again for sure.

 

The Boots Botanics Refreshing Eye Roll is another product I have been using recently. Here is the product description:

 

This lightweight gel is quickly absorbed to help reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

The fragile under eye area feels immediately cooled and refreshed, while hyaluronic acid provides much needed hydration to dull, delicate skin.

Hibiscus is nature’s brightness booster and a wonderful hue of pink.

Natural AHA’s from the flower act as mild exfoliators to help leave skin smoother and brighter.

 

Here are my thoughts –

PROS

  1. It feels great on my skin. It calms the eye area.
  2. It is nicely packaged, and easy to carry around.
  3. It is quite affordable at £4.37 for a 15ml tube.
  4. It is tested on humans, and not animals.

CONS

  1. I am unsure about this product. I have not noticed any major difference in my eye are.

It does relax my eye area, so I may buy it again but I am still unsure about it.

Product Review: Garnier Ultimate Blends Nourishing Oil

I love my oils, especially in the colder months. It feels amazing using a nourishing oil after a warm shower. Apart from it feeling so good, my skin also thanks me for it.

In my pursuit of a nourishing oil, after running out of my Bio Oil, I came across this New Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil in my local Boots Store, and decided to give it a go.

  1. Beautiful compact packaging.
  2. It is a non sticky oil.
  3. It is very affordable at £3.99 for a 150ml bottle.
  4. You can get this nourishing oil in most stores – Boots, Superdrug eBay, Amazon, Asda, and so on.

  6. I love the fragrance, it is very light and fresh.
  7. The oil is absorbed into my skin very quickly.

Overall, I would recommend this Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Nourishing Oil to anyone in need of a nourishing oil, especially if you have a very dry skin, but I don’t see myself buying this particular oil again because of the inconvenience of not being able to use it on my face.
