Australian Bodycare Any Time Balm* Review

I thought I had tried all of the multi-use skincare products that were available but I was SO wrong, meet my new favourite game changer! The any time balm by Australian Bodycare!
This is my first ever product from the brand AB and I am glad it's stocked up in places like look fantastic and QVC. Read on to see how I used this product and why it worked for me.

Product description:
A rich creamy emollient balm for all skin types but especially good for blemished and dry flaking skin 
Containing several key active ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil, Bisabolol, Soya and macadamia making the formula unique and effective.
Can be used “any time” and for almost all skin conditions 
Vegan & Vegetarian friendly

There is quite a generous amount of product to use and the pot is just the 'right' size so it's easy to travel with and use on the go.
There are many uses for this product and I mainly use it for three purposes. One of the uses is that I apply and massage my cuticles and I have noticed quite a difference now, they aren't as dry and I feel that it has given my nails and hands a much more healthier appearance. The second use is for my lips, when I feel my lips are feeling oh so chapped and dry, I then apply this. Generously. It not only soothes my lips but it also brings my lips back to normal. The added tea tree oil is an antiseptic so it would kill off any bacteria which was causing my lips to be so uncomfortable.. I blame the cold harsh winds. Finally the third use is to apply onto any larger drier areas such as my elbows or anywhere I feel needs a huge moisture boost. The texture of this balm is amazing. It is somewhat in a solid form but once you scoop some into your fingers, it instantly melts and becomes an amazing consistency to work with. In terms of scent, I can only detect the tea tree oil scent, it's not particularly one of my favourite scents but it doesn't bother me whilst using this. A product that really works and is worth having in your skincare collection.

Lush Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb Review

Meet the cutest bath bomb EVER! This was the last Lush bath bomb from my stash and I knew I had to review this, how could I not? this cute lil chap is a bath bomb designed for children and it's such a lovely idea. Bath treats aimed at smaller people too but that being said, even though it's aimed at children, adults can use it too. Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is designed to help you relax before bedtime and with one of the main ingredients being lavender, it is bound to calm and relax you just before bedtime.

About this bath bomb...
A gentle lavender bath bomb to relax children before bedtime. This is a bath bomb designed to look after young children’s delicate skin, and is so gentle it’s suitable for babies over six months. Its aromatherapy oils also work to soothe irritable cherubs before bedtime. Lavender is a calming aromatherapy oil, used in traditional medicine to treat skin irritations, sunburn and insect bites.

This fizzed away quickly leaving a brilliant trail of blue. My bath water did not appear to be a bright blue though, just a tint of blue which is exactly what you would need to relax and unwind since a brighter colour would defeat the purpose. The lavender scent was definitely there but it wasn't too overpowering. The added chamomile blue oil is a great ingredient in this bath product too since this soothed the skin, having said that this would be a great option for us adults after shaving if you have sensitive skin. I enjoyed this mini bath bomb and I think I will continue to use it as a midweek treat to unwind and let my skin soak up all that comforting goodness. A rather cheap and cheerful treat that does the job.
