My skincare routine has been something that I always want to improve. I definitely once thought that in order to purchase great skin products, it would cost me a lot of money as only the more luxurious products seem to show results. I’ve felt in the past that I’ve never found a drugstore skincare product that I have actually really loved and had seen proper results with, until now. That's why I have to tell you all about this new and exciting product that I found! This isn't a sponsored post or a paid collaboration, I just found something great and I wanted to share it with you all.

The L’Oreal Paris Hydra Genius Moisturiser contains aloe water & hyaluronic acid. This winning combination releases continuous hydration and locks in moisture for 72 hours. It’s liquid formula is lightweight and easy to apply. Massaging in circular motions, one pump of the product is enough to cover both the face and neck. Therefore, in a large size bottle with a high quality pump dispenser, I have high hopes that this will last me a good while, despite using it twice daily. Hydra Genius provides a hydrated and healthy glow, without any grease, glaze, or stickiness. The formula is also quickly absorbed and leaves your skin feeling instantly refreshed. 

I personally bought this product on a whim whilst searching for a new and affordable daily moisturiser, but after just a week or two of use every morning and evening, I am obsessed! It’s innovative properties really have made a difference to my skin, and I’m so glad that I have found a moisturiser that is light and non-sticky! Hydra Genius is also available for various skin types, so you can pick the most suitable for you. I use the version designed for sensitive skin, as I have had reactions to products in the past causing redness and stinging sensations and I am also prone to dryness. I can noticeably recognise an improvement in regards to dry skin, and with the liquid being so comforting on my skin, I have not experienced any problems with it so far at all! Rating 10/10.

The lovely people at have set me a task this month. They've asked me to style 7 different outfits for 7 days, centring the looks around styling two key pieces from their 'Game Changers' campaign. Showing versatility in selected items, this campaign allows a wardrobe revamp on a budget! Shop the campaign here.

The Game Changers: Eva Plunge Black Top & Charlotte Denim Popper Dress

Day 1

I love this look, as it is perfect for a day at college, university, or perhaps even work! The key themes in this outfit are layers, oversized accessories, and a statement print.

Day 3

Suitable for a dinner date or after-work drinks out, this look provides an evening look that is perfect for this season. The very on-trend check print is complimented by the dark crop top, as the plunge necklace draws the eye and is the perfect accessory!

Day 4

As Springtime approaches, I'm bringing back the denim dress. This popper front dress is so versatile, and perfect for anyone who loves denim as much as I do. Adding a belt to the waistline really accentuates the waist and gives the dress more of a shape.

Day 5

In regards to creating new looks and styling garments in an alternative way, experimenting with layers in my outfits recently has been so beneficial. I have partnered this dress with over-the-knee high boots and a dainty nude/pink handbag for a more feminine take on this Charlotte popper dress.

Day 6

Again, styling layers, I have partnered together my two game changer items to create a casual yet cool day look. This would be perfect for a lunch date with friends or a day at college.

Day 7 

Lastly, for a warmer look, I have added my Teddy Fur Coat. I adore this coat as it's so cosy, yet super stylish. It provides texture, and is the perfect outer layer.

Over the last week, I've been trying out a new protein. As I've previously discussed on my blog and on my social media, I regularly drink protein shakes after my gym sessions. Protein shakes aid recovery and muscle growth. They also allow an extra source of protein into your diet, in addition to your meals. I never ever use the shakes as meal replacement, and I wouldn't suggest it either. Being someone that experiments often with various flavours, I was intrigued to try out a whole new brand of protein. The range is called Some Body, and the products are available at Superdrug.

I've been trying out the Vanilla Whey Protein Powder product this week, and here's how I rated it based on the main things that I look out for when I'm buying and drinking protein.


Rating: 7/10
I enjoyed the vanilla flavour of the protein. However, I felt that if I mixed too much or too little water with the powder by mistake, it would have a big impact on the taste of the product. So it's best to be accurate with the recommended serving size! As far as vanilla flavours go, this was pleasant. However, next time I think I would try something a little more exotic and fruity!

Serving Size

Rating: 7/10
As I mentioned above, the protein taste did depend on getting the water:protein ratio accurate. You can also have the protein with milk, instead of water, but I prefer not to as I am not a fan of cold milk! However, in terms of the powder itself, the serving size was two large scoops. The tub comes with the scoop, so there's no need to worry about that. I am used to adding one scoop of protein normally, when using other brands. Although, it did still fit into my protein shaker compartment, so it wasn't a problem. The protein powder consistency was quite a fine powder, and this really helped when mixing the shake, as lumps were less likely to form and the drink was smooth.


Rating: 9/10
Here, I'm mainly referring to the packaging of the product. For me, I find screw top tubs so much more convinient and better for storage than bag style containers. I HATE having numerous bags in the cupboard and I love the fact that this protein is easily contained. The overall look of the design is clean and contemporary, and includes all the nutritional and serving information typed on the reverse side of the tub.

Affordability & Convenience

Rating 8/10
Right, so it doesn't take a genius to tell you that this isn't the cheapest protein on the market. Although, it does seem to be on offer for half price at the moment (BARGAIN) so it is likely that it will be again! Regardless, what it does have is a unique selling point. Convenience! If you're someone that doesn't like to order online, is never home to catch your delivery man, or you would just rather go to the shop to purchase the physical product there and then, this product/range would be great for you! Alternatively, if, like me, you often forget to order your protein in advance before you run out, then this is another fantastic option. Rather than missing you, you can just pop over to your local Superdrug, and voila!

Overall Rating

Rating 8.5/10
I think this is a great product for someone trying out protein products for the first time and not knowing what it's like or understanding all the information that certain fitness supplement brands can shout at you. It's a lot to take in, I know!Instead of going through web pages, you can pick it up in store, probably ask a staff member about it face-to-face, and not have to go through the delivery process. I'd definitely consider purchasing this protein again if I was in need and didn't have the time to make an order, as it is pleasant, does the job, and it is highly convenient. If you'd like to purchase the protein or try it out yourself, and you do have time to order then click the link below. Hurry while it's still half price!
