Nivea | is it worth it?

lucys blog

With these products I did receive these at Christmas as a present. Some of them I have become obsessed and included into my routine and others I have re-gifted to other people that I hope would love to use.

Now when I did a google search I have found out that sadly Nivea are not cruelty free or even vegan, as I love a good cruelty free product. But some of these products I have repurchased again and I have re-gifted some of these products to friends and they have become obsessed with the products as well.

This product came at perfect timing at Christmas as I was running out of makeup remover. Although this does say for sensitive skin I have noticed that this really helps hydrates my skin at the points that I do need my skin to hydrate.

What does it smell like?

I have not noticed…

My Favorite Drugstore Makeup

Creating pretty Things

IMG_3499 2Hello everyone!

I just wanted to share a few of my favorite drugstore products that I use everyday. These products are affordable and work just as good as the high end makeup!

I usually purchase high end eyeshadow palettes and keep the rest of my makeup from the drugstore.

  • Concealer: Maybelline Instant age rewind in Medium
  • Face powder: Maybelline Fit Me Matte #310

Review: Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Creamy Body Wash

Thoughtful Pigeon


The Soap and Glory Righteous Butter Creamy Body Washwas one of those products that you get and sits in the back of a cupboard for ages, for me anyway.
