I would like to thank Laura for nominating me! *we even have the same name xD*

A few days later I then had a tweet from Freya another blogger nominating me for the same award! I'd like to thank her too!

That's a hard one! I do like to read! But as I have bed eyesight I can't read before I sleep because I'll end up sleeping with my glasses on... Ouch. I did enjoy reading Heaven Is For Real!

8. Why do you enjoy blogging?
I love talking to all of you guys! It's great knowing there's someone communicating with you and enjoying what you enjoy creating. I actually started properly when I had to take a year out of school due to illness. It always keeps me going and it's my happy place, I love doing it and the blogging community inspires me so much. My love of photography also helps me... I love to be creative and blogging is how I express my creativeness.

I do, but I'm not always organised! I write everything down and use reminders on my phone.

REVIEW ¦ Lush's Breath Of Fresh Air Toner Water

I'm just going to get straight into this review because I have a lot to say. I have a few secrets and tips for this product that are now not going to be secrets because you will know... But shhh! Only we will know!

This mighty fine bottle contains a magical liquid. It has honestly really improved my skin. I used to have a small 100g bottle which cost £3.95 but then after the product running out I bought a big bottle which was 250g at £7.50.

This has honestly created my love for foundation! I can not, I repeat, can not use foundation without the little life saver. I spray it on before I've applied a moisturiser and primer then I spray a little on my beauty blender or spray it directly onto my face and then dab it with a beauty blender after my foundation and concealer. It creates a lovely dewy glow! If you put on too much foundation or blusher you can dab the toner on with a beauty blender and vola! You have a natural glowing look! I just love this thing... I want to marry it... Joking... But really, it's truly amazing!

I would recommend this toner to anyone with dry skin. It really does moisturise and soften the skin. I really enjoy using this product, it has really benefited my skin and also my makeup application. To be honest I just love all of Lush's products! I've never had a bad experience with them.

Tell me...
What are you favourite Lush products?
What would you like to try?

Thanks for reading my post!
Type to you soon :D

L'Occitane Haul

Hi there! So I have a haul post for you! I was is L'Occitane ages ago but I've only been able to post now. I've been really ill and in and out of hospital so I haven't had a chance to post anything. Sorry about that.

This is probably the first time I've had a proper look in L'Occitane, I went to the Solihull branch. I have never had such good customer service, ever! I was served by the manager of the shop, she was really informative and helped me pick out the products that suited my skin type. I now absolutely love this company! I'll be defiantly buying more!

I went into L'Occitane because I wanted to find a hand cream that is really moisturising. I have really dry hands and they are covered in eczema.  I've tried medicated creams given to me by my GP and Dermatologist but nothing soothes them more then the L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream (http://uk.loccitane.com/l'occitane-shea-butter-hand-cream,83,1,29776,271739.htm) I bought the big size which was 150ml priced at £19, you can also buy a smaller version, 30ml, at £8. I love this cream! As I have severe eczema sometimes it can be bleeding and cracked, this soothes it and it doesn't even sting when applied!

For all my lotions and potions I was sucked in by a little key called the Magic Key- Tube Squeezer (http://uk.loccitane.com/magic-key-tube-squeezer,83,1,29776,269984.htm). It helps get the last bit out of your product out of its tube! You just slide it on and twist it. It comes in a protective case to keep it safe and free from scratches! The key was priced at £5 which I thought was a great price!

The next thing that caught my eye as I was paying was perfume! It's a roll on! It's called Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette Roll-on (http://uk.loccitane.com/pivoine-flora-eau-de-toilette-roll-on,83,1,29879,272222.htm), it was priced at £14.50 for 10ml. It smells like you're going through a field of roses... I'm dreaming there, but really, it smells amazing!

As I bought all of that the lady that served me gave me a heap tonne of samples! Then as I got to the till I was given a Ultra Rich Shower Cream (http://uk.loccitane.com/ultra-rich-shower-cream,83,1,30009,270336.htm) for free! It was supposed to be £13! This shower gel smells amazing! It contains 5% shea which is good for my dry eczema prone skin!

I am now a TRUE fan of L'Occitane! Things can be a bit pricey and it's not like I'm a millionaire! The things I got were really worth it, especially the hand cream! I put loads on at night time with some gloves, looking all cool and trendy, joke, I look hilarious but I take those gloves off, everything has been absorbed and my hands are soft and the eczema calms down! I love it!

I hope you enjoyed this post! As I said, really sorry I haven't posted for a while. I also want to say a HUGE hello to all my new and old followers! I get so excited when you follow, comment and follow me on Twitter (@DemandBeauty). Thank you!

See you soon m'lovlies!

Have you lovely lot tried some products from L'Occitane, if you haven't, would you like to? What would you like to try?
