Bobbi Brown Skincare

I've recently fallen head over heels for Bobbi Brown skincare, and it's completely transformed my skin. I'm pretty dubious when it comes to trying out skincare from a brand that has always been known for making make up, as more times that not, they get it so wrong what they don't stick to what they know. Bobbi Brown, however have absolutely nailed the transition into skincare. Over the past few months, in the run up to the wedding I've been really trying to pin down my skincare routine to something that I'm really happy with and during the process I've been trying out so many bits from Bobbi Brown. 

I'll start with the products that I think have made the biggest difference to my skin. Firstly, I've been using the Soothing Cleansing Oil every evening and I've noticed such a difference in my skin. I've found that overall the texture is much more even and my skin just generally looks super hydrated. It contains a real mix of different oils, which I think it what makes my skin feel super soft and hydrated. The second product I'm really impressed with is the Skin Relief Calming Complex serum from the Remedies range. I started using this probably able 2 months ago and I cannot tell you the difference it has made to my skin. I used to have so many red and blotchy patches on my forehead and cheeks and this just completely eliminates them. I also use it on my neck and chest area if I get a bit of redness there, as that also works really well. I've used a few of the other serums from the Remedies range, and they're all really great but I'd say this is the stand out product for me. 

Next up is the Skin Salve Restoring Treatment, which is a hard sort of balm that works absolute wonders on dry patches of skin. I have a really strange, raised dry area of skin on my cheeks and this is slowly getting rid of it. It has a very balm like texture and sort of acts like a protect shield to any dry areas of skin. This is really good if like my you have random patches of super rough dry skin.

Other products I've used from the range are the Extra Repair Serum, which is good if you generally have dry skin. I find using this in combination with the Cleansing Oil really helps to restore moisture back into the skin. I've also tried the Hydrating Face Tonic, which I would say is my least favourite from the range, as I didn't find it made too much of a difference to my skin.

Overall I am really, really impressed with the skincare from Bobbi Brown and I think the fact that 3 things have worked their way into my almost daily routine speaks volumes. 

Have you tried any products from the range, and is there anything you think I need to try next?

Häagen-Dazs Strawberries and Cream

Summer is now officially in full swing and with that so is Wimbledon and the season of tennis. Being someone who absolutely loves anything quintessentially British I always truly look forward to Wimbledon and everything that comes with it from the strawberries and cream to the many jugs of Pimms. There’s nothing better than celebrating summer by watching the worlds very best tennis players play for the most prestigious title in the sport. I’ve never been lucky enough to attend Wimbledon, but it’s definitely on my list of things I would love to do at some point in my life. Most years I either watch the matches at home or head to the pub and watch with friends over pimms and fizz, which I guess isn’t too bad!

Now although I didn’t manage to secure tickets to the championship this year,  you may have seen on my Instagram that I recently attended the very glitzy and star-studded WTA pre-Wimbledon launch party at Kensington Roof Gardens with Häagen-Dazs to celebrate the launch of their new Strawberries and Cream limited edition ice cream bar. The event was held on the most perfect summer evening with full access to the roof gardens that allowed the players, celebs and tennis lovers to enjoy some sunshine whilst sipping champagne and eating as much ice cream as possible.

 As I mentioned I love anything truly British and I couldn’t think of anything more fitting than a strawberries and cream ice cream to bring a playful twist on the Wimbledon classic whilst paying tribute to the much adored flavour pairing of The Championships. The delicious treat is made with handpicked strawberries, the Häagen-Dazs signature luxury ice cream, and enveloped in a rich Belgian chocolate coating, if that doesn’t get you excited I’m not sure what will! Along with the limited edition flavour,Häagen-Dazs have also partnered with Bjӧrn Borg to create the limited edition packaging for the ice cream bar. The limited edition Bjӧrn Borg  designed box has the official championship logo on the front and tennis balls filled with swirls of strawberries and cream, which makes for the perfect Instagram picture!

As Häagen-Dazs are the official ice cream of the Wimbledon Championships and WTA this year, their limited edition strawberries and cream ice cream will be available at The Championships for everyone to enjoy. If like me you haven’t managed to get your hands on tickets, then fear not as the single serve ice cream is available to order on Amazon Prime Now. This offers customers in selected postcodes a choice of a two-hour, same day delivery slot to experience Wimbledon where ever you are. However, if like me you and you can’t stop at just one ice cream (I may or may have not had 3 or 4 at the party) then you can buy the multi-packs from Sainsbury’s to stock up your freezer until the end of July.

How have you been celebrating The Championships and have you tried the limited edition ice cream yet?
