One Lush Line Up

onelittlevice beauty blog: Lush product collection

As much as I enjoy trying Lush's vast array of products, I am often put off by their price tag. I don't know what it is, I'm willing to part with an unseemly amount of case for certain brands but with Lush I'm always a little bit reluctant. That being said, most of the time, when I try Lush products I'm always suitably impressed - and sometimes I'm even surprised that things aren't more expensive. I think that on the whole their bath and body products are pretty overpriced, whilst some of their skincare represents great value for money. I could rave about Lush's face masks and cleansers until the cows came home, but you're not really here to read about that. Today I'm going to walk you through the Lush products that I'm currently housing in my bathroom, and I'll let you know which ones are hits and which ones are misses.

The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette Review

one little vice beauty blog: Diptyque Philosykos dupe

I received The Body Shop's Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette (£18.00) for Christmas and it really did exceed all of my expectations. I've seen this fragrance on a number of beauty blogs, and being a lover of fig fragrances (Roger & Gallet got me hooked) I thought that I'd give it a go. It's always a bit risky purchasing fragrances online without smelling them first, but this gamble really paid off.

My Chelle Skincare for Dry Skin

one little vice beauty blog: Tropical Skin Smoother, Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum and Cactus Mask

Back in December I was very kindly sent some of MyChelle's skincare range for dry skin and not only have I really enjoyed trying it out for myself but I've been incredibly impressed with the results. I was sent three products - MyChelle's Tropical Skin Smoother* (£28.00), MyChelle's Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum* (£29.00) and MyChelle's Hydrating Cactus Mask* (£23.00) - and today I'm going to talk you through my experience using them. All of MyChelle's skincare is cruelty free, a lot of it is vegan and many of them contain organic ingredients.

The Best Body Oils & When I Like Use Them

one little vice beauty blog

Body oils are one of those products that I couldn't go without. I moisturise my body every day but I very rarely reach for anything other than body oils. I love how quick and convenient it is to apply a quick-absorbing oil after my morning or evening shower, and they never fail to leave my skin feeling and looking so much better than before. If you're interested in trying a body oil but don't know where to start - or maybe you just want some inspiration on what to try next - then today's line-up might be of interest. I've shared all the body oils that I've got stashed in my bathroom (most of which I've repurchased at least once, because they really are the best I've come across) and I've broken them down into different categories based on when I use them. I hope you enjoy today's post and do let me know in the comments if you're also a fan of body oils!

Grown Alchemist is an Australian beauty brand that offer skincare and body care products made from organic botanical ingredients (ACO - Australian Certified Organic - Certified). I first spotted Grown Alchemist on Instagram where I was immediately struck by their product packaging, and the brand's distinctive monochrome theme.

Elemis Skincare at John Lewis Kingston

John Lewis Kingston stock some really fabulous beauty brands (all housed in their gorgeous newly renovated beauty floor), and in November they very kindly sent me a package of Elemis products to trial. I haven't used very much from Elemis before so I was really excited to try more from the brand, and I have to admit that I've been pretty impressed!
