Ted Baker Bargain

John Lewis recently had a big clearance sale on and as I like to often do I just had a little peak in the handbag section to see if there was anything worth having a proper look at and this Ted Baker shopper bag caught my eye once again. I say once again as I have previously looked and looked at this bag but always resisted the temptation for the following reasons -

1- I don't need anymore bags.
2- I have no where to store it.
3- Would I use if for £150?

However the price was reduced to a more purse friendly (for me anyway) price of £89.50 and instantly in my head I was like 'Bargain, Bargain, Bargain' so I whipped out my card and ran to the till and I have to say I am so glad I did. Plus it comes with a mini clutch bag attached so essentially it's 2 bags for the price of 1 right?!

Palmer's Daily Calming Facial Lotion

Palmer's products have always been a bit hit and miss with me - I like their lip balms, the price and the quality of them are really unbeatable but I'm not a fan of their hand cream all that much. I also had to give away one of their body lotions because the smell of the coca butter was too overpowering for me and I just couldn't use it.

However I have found one of their products that I use on a daily basis and cannot rave enough about - Daily Calming Facial Lotion. Simply it's a moisturizer. The thing about this moisturizer is that it actually for once does what it says on the packaging -

 'Reduces redness and irritation
   Calms stressed skin'

And it really does do all that. I know when I have wake up with redness that this will help with that. It absorbs into the skin quickly so is great when you are in a rush or if you are planning on putting your make up straight after applying. It's lightweight so it can be used in summer as well as winter as it's not heavy on the skin and it generally makes my skin on my face feel a lot fresher - I can feel and see the difference when I've used a different cream on my face. 

I will say as much as I really do like this moisturizer, it one thing missing - it has no SPF in it. Which means for me I either have to double up on a moisturizer or go without as I don't wear anything but primer and powder on top and neither of those contain an SPF. That is for me my only moan about an otherwise really great product and the coca butter smell doesn't for some reason smell as strong in this like the other products which is a bonus as well.

If you want to try it out for yourself then it's available from Superdrug is currently on offer for £3.95 normal price £5.99.
