Shopping my Stash #91

Here's what I've been reaching for:

Fabulous new to me brand help me organics (I received their "help me it's way past my bedtime" Room Spray) in the brilliant Skin Organics Beauty Box see my thoughts on the August Self Care Box* HERE. The spray contains melissa, lavender, eucalyptus and ginger in a witch hazel base. It calms and destresses and is great to use before bed for a restful and peaceful night's sleep.

From John Masters Organics is something I always have in my stash - their fabulous Rose & Apricot Hair Milk which I reviewed HERE.

I recently tried some try me sizes from OKKO which I loved. I've been enjoying their delicious coconut & lime lip balm which is available at Love Lula.  The balm is super moisturising and smells delicious. My only bug-bear is that you have to be careful not to push the balm up too much (as it won't go back down again!) I do however love the recyclable packaging.

This new lipstick (South Pacific Coral) from Antipodes is absolutely gorgeous! The colour is a beautiful long lasting coral shade. It deeply nourishes the lips and the shade is perfect for summer and coming into autumn. I can't wait to pick up some more!

I love the range of perfumes from Balm Balm. Rose Geranium is a sweet rosey scent which can be worn alone or layered with a mixture of the others from the range.

I just adore calm-inducing Isla Apothecary Reset Ritual Pulse Point Therapy* (10ml - £12)** which helps to reset "thought patterns that no longer serve you, clear stagnant energy and introduce calm". 

It's a blend of Roman chamomile, eucalyptus and lavender and is great to use to de-stress and clear muddled thoughts. It's also great to bring relief to hayfever, itchy eyes, sneezing, congested sinuses, headaches and drowsiness. It helps me when I'm needing a helping hand with things like travelling or for a moment of calm.

What have you been reaching for lately?

  1. Loving seeing you shopping your stash, I tend to do that a lot too - and I love seeing what other people are loving, whether it's love from the first sight (try) or something re-discovered in your own drawers! Now I am off to read the review of that JMO Hair Milk, it is definitely something that is calling my name recently, and I want to know your thoughts on it. xo

    1. Thank you! It's really beautiful and I recommend it x

  2. Lovely post, all the products sound wonderful. I fancy trying the Balm Balm fragrances, over the past few months I have been using The Library of Fragrance Sunshine perfume which is also a singular scent and to my knowledge cruelty-free. I do love a bold lipstick, especially a pop of red in autumn, my go to is Celebrity Red by Borlind. I really need some sleep/relaxation products in my stash, I like the ones you featured! :-) xx
