Friday Favourites!


Happy Friday! I haven't done a Friday Favourites in quite some time even though there have been lots of products that I have been really loving lately, so I thought I would share a few of them today.


I've been wanting to try out The Body Shop scrubs for the longest time now but they are particularly pricey (£13!) and I just haven't been able to justify spending the money. For my birthday last year though, my cousin gave me the mango gift set which included a body scrub along with a tub of mango body butter. This scrub has a pretty thick consistency (do they still sell them like this? Newer ones I have had are much runnier) and is full of lovely gritty, scrubby bits. I'm fussy when it comes to a scrub; I want it to stay gritty and not melt off into the water right away so I can really get a good scrub out of it and this one does just that. It has an almost artificial smell to me but it smells good none the less and although I really enjoyed using this but I still wouldn't fork out the full price. 


I can not believe I haven't already included this in a FF, I had to go back and check to make sure but it doesn't look like I have. I LOVE this stuff. I love how it smells, I love how it lathers and I love how it makes my hair feel. It's a bit pricey at £12.95 a tub but I just use it a couple times a week to really give my hair a deep clean and one tub lasts a decently long time. Does it make my hair 'big'? Eh, I don't really notice a big enough different to say that it does but as a general clarifying shampoo, it's amazing. The smell also transfers onto your hair really well and after I've used this, I just want to keep sniffing it! 


I've recently started using a few of the products from the Baylis & Harding Beauticology range, including this Marshmallow Frosting body butter. It smells to me like cherry yoghurts which I actually quite like but what impressed me the most about this body butter was it's drying time. It dries on your skin super quickly and doesn't leave it feeling greasy at all. Some of their products are also paraben free which has drawn me to the brand even more (although, check before you buy as it seems not all of their products are!)


Finally is Ultraviolet Bubblebar from Lush. I really like the colours of this one but the smell of this bubblebar is just amazing. The violet scent is really strong and I can't get enough of it. I've since bought a couple more of these because they are part of the Mother's Day collection so I know they won't be around for much longer! 

What products have you been enjoying recently?
I hope you all have a lovely Easter!

  1. Absolutely love the Lush Ultraviolet bubble bar. It's such a nice one. Wish I got another one because they won't be in stock. :(

    Also have really wanted to try some body shop body butters too!

  2. Ooo Marshmellow frosting sounds amazing! I didn't know Beauticology was by Baylis&Harding, I just thought it was a Philosophy dupe! I'm not too keen on the Body Shop scrubs, as you mentioned they can be quite pricey! S&G and Lush do my favs srubs :)!

    1. The Soap and Glory scrubs are some of the best I have ever used, I love them! The Beauticology stuff really does look like Philosophy right?! I didn't know it was Baylis and Harding either until I was reading the back of one of the products :)

  3. I'll have to try the Big shampoo from Lush. I use Rub Rub Rub from Lush and I love it as a clarifying shampoo.

    1. One of the people in Lush just recently told me that people like to use Rub Rub Rub as a shampoo because it's similar to Big.. I haven't tried it in my hair!

  4. Amazing post and photography! Would it be wrong if I told you I've never tried anything from lush? I'm certainly tempted now, that bubblebar looks amazing! Love, April xxx

  7. I'd not heard of that Lush shampoo before but I'm definitely intrigued now, so thanks for the recommendation! That body butter sounds divine, I think it's so important that drying time is fast with lotions - who wants their clothes sticking to them!?

  8. I love my Body Shop body scrubs - I think they're great, my favourite is the shea one; I understand they are expensive but I love the way they melt into an oil so it's like exfoliating and moisturising at the the same time. I prefer nutty things so not sure if the fruity ones work the same but I find them excellent value for money.
