As you all know it was my birthday a few weeks ago and I only just recently received a lovely belated birthday present. It’s a Nivea Gift bag and I absolutely love it so I thought I’d open it up and show you whats inside!
The bag itself is a lovely pale peach colour with a teal/baby blue colour inside, it a really nice and summery colour combination. All the products come a cute pale peach drawstring bag which is handy for using to store my current skincare products when when I travel!
And here is the bit I’m excited to share with you, the 6 full size products that are included!!
Included is a Shower gel, Hand cream, Moisturising cream, a deodorant stick, day cream and a bottle of micellar water. I’ve only tried one of these products which is the micellar water so I’m excited about seeing what the rest is like 🙂
Recently I posted a mini haul (you can read it here) and in this haul I purchased two bottles of Tesco Aloe Vera body gel as I was suffering with terrible sunburn.
I was so impressed with this product that I decided that I really wanted to review it and share it with you.
I’m not usually one to stick to regularly moisturising my body, I really feel like I should do it more often but it really does feel like a chore to me! Plus I usually have to wait ages for the moisturiser to dry before I can touch any furniture or put my clothes on! I never really seemed worth it.
I guess after burning the hell out of my skin and seeing how great this product is, I don’t mind moisturising now!
I’ll start with the price. I purchased this for £3 as all the Aloe Vera after suns were quite expensive and this one looked like it would help with my burns just as good as the rest. I also felt like I was getting more for my money as the bottle is quite big.
After taking it home I had a freezing cold shower and applied it to my sunburn. It left a nice cooling effect, didn’t feel like it was irritating my skin and dried so quickly, like almost instant!! I started using it regularly and my skin had never been better! It helped take away the dry peeling skin and helped make my skin feel incredibly hydrated.
I was using it 4-5 times a day for a solid 3 to 4 days and haven’t even used a quarter of the bottle yet!
I definitely will continue to use this product as I’m still yet to find a fault with it and if I’m honest I don’t think I will. It’s cheap, you get a lot for your money, it smells great and dries really quickly! I’d definitely recommend it!

If you don’t already know, I’m a sucker for a good foundation and I will just keep buying and buying until I feel I’ve found the right one. I guess I could say I’m obsessed with having a flawless face (even though this never happens for me, but hey! A girl can dream, right?)
This foundation was one of my first purchases from The Body Shop, along with a couple of other products and I don’t understand why I had never brought from them before! I guess it was because I always thought that they were overpriced, but at £13.99 for a foundation, who can complain, that’s actually quite good!!
The product is aimed at those with dry skin (which I have plenty of) and gives medium to heavy coverage. It comes in lots of different shades and if they don’t have the exact shade for you, you can buy these drops that either lighten or darken the product. It comes in a nice clear plastic foundation bottle so you can see the product, the colour of it and how much you have left. It also has a silver lid and a silver bottom.
Needless to say, I certainly was not disappointed after giving this product a go. It made my skin look and feel so dewy and hydrated, which is something I don’t think I’ve ever experienced. It’s also super blendable and the coverage is indeed medium/heavy, it depends on how much you build it up.I absolutely love this product and if you were to come to me and ask for a recommendation on a foundation, I’d definitely recommend this one!
