Today, we were challenged to review… Moisturiser!! So, I picked the simple kind to skin hydrating light moisturiser.

I have rated this product on packaging, price and the product itself. (Unfortunately, the top trumps card app is currently down so i will update with the card as soon as i can)

Packaging… 65

Price… 100 (£3)

Product… 95

Simple Says…

for natural healthy looking skin’

‘Our Hydrating Light Moisturiser is a perfect blend of multi-vitamins and skin-loving ingredients to keep our skin moisturised and pampered, and carries on working for 12 hours. Perfect even for sensitive skin’

What I love…

Straight away, you cannot go wrong with the price of this product. At just £3 for 125ml it is one of the cheapest moisturizers around that actually works! Because it is a light weight moisturiser, my skin doesn’t feel at all greasy and it soaks in within no time at all. I’m one of those people that hates my face to feel like there is too much product on, and this fits the bill perfectly! I love that they use all natural ingredients and no perfumes and this leaves my face feeling soft and nourished every time.

What I Don’t Love…

Although this is a cheap product, I’m not a big fan of the packaging. I prefer my beauty products to come in pretty bottles and a pump or squeezy tube makes life much easier when getting towards the bottom of the tube. Also, I have found that a few days after starting to use this product my skin breaks out a little. It clears up within a day or two though, and then my face feels better than ever!

#100happydays…

Lately, I’ve noticed #100happydays floating around on my Facebook and Instagram. Eventually, my curiosity got the better of me and I googled it. I came across a website www.100happydays.com. According the the site, 71% of people fail the challenge. Lack of time was quoted as the main reason. Are you to busy to be happy? That really made me think. I mean this whole challenge is simple. You take a picture of something that makes you happy, then, upload it onto Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the tag #100happydays. There is even an email address if your super private.

I find it really sad that people are claiming they are too busy to be happy. I know there’s something every day that makes me happy no matter how small!

Sooo I’m taking up the challenge! You can follow my progress here on Instagram, want to join me? Simply go to the website and hit sign up! Make sure you comment telling me where your posting so I can follow your progress! Plus, if you manage to do the entire 100 days there is supposed to be a book of all 100 pictures available. If not? I think it’s worth it to remember all the little things in life that make us happy.

I have so far done a week on the challenge, and actually found it really easy so far so I’m hoping that this is going to continue! Here’s my happy things so far…
