Loves And Likes For May

I haven't done a loves and likes post for a while, so here is a round up of my favorite things in May. 

Mornflake Chocolatey Orange Squares

The kids love testing out new cereal especially anything to do with chocolate. The kids have had a similar chocolate square cereal before and it's been a firm favorite. Mornflake have revamped there chocolate squares with adding orange in to there filling with real chocolate. As soon as I opened the box the orange scent is quite strong, it reminded me of the smell of Terry chocolate orange. They are pretty tasty and even though the smell is quite strong inside the pack the orange flavour isn't overpowering like I thought it would be. The kids have enjoyed them and you can eat them with or without milk. Fortified with 8 added vitamins and iron, Mornflake Chocolatey Orange Squares are a good source of important vitamins and minerals as well as being a cereal all ages will love.

Phytaoil From Phytacolhas

I wish I could be a person that could really be confident about my stretch marks, but I really can't. I'm very proud of my body to be able to carry and produce two beautiful children and I know I'm very lucky to be able to of do this. I do find them getting me down quite a lot and I've used every oil and lotion I can find to try and reduce them.  A UK range of products, based on rosehip oil, now hopes to show that you don’t need the purse strings of a celebrity to benefit from the fruits powerful properties and that there is much more to it than simply acting as a skin moisturiser

Rosehip oil acts as more than just a moisturiser and can also help with the recovery of scars and stretch marks. The oil is found to be particularly rich in essential fatty acids, the building blocks for healthy skin cells and one of the foundations of the protective layers the skin forms. Rosehips are also crammed with substances called bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are found in certain plants and known to be powerful anti-oxidants that have been shown to protect the body and skin against harmful substances called oxygen free radicals. Rosehips also contain a natural vitamin derivative, which, when tested byscientists in the US, has been found to help reduce wrinkles and smooth skin tones. 
Available in two different blends, Phytaoil and Phytalotion, the range allows you to choose the treatment type you prefer and both come with a convenient spray dispenser allowing you to precisely apply the right amount, reducing waste. I had the Phytaoil to test out share my thoughts, the oil itself is very greasy so I would use it after a bath on the night, the oil sort of sits on your skin and doesn't absorb to well. The scent is pretty mild which I find better with an oil especially when it's a little greasy. My tummy after using the oil already feels quite smoother and I really haven't been using it that long, which I'm surprised about. I've used a lot of different oils and I've not had the smoothness like this before. I know previous a lot of the oils are quick absorbing, maybe as Phytaoil sits on your skin it works better getting to the problem direct. 

The exciting range from Phytacolhas been designed specifically to capture the power of rosehips and moisturises and tones the skin, and improves the appearance of scars and stretch marks.

RRP- £10.99 per 60ml 

Superdrug Detangling Spray Pear 

I have to use a Detangling spray everyday for Lexie's hair it's a little and wild after sleeping. I picked this up in Superdrug the other day and so far it's my favourite one I've ever used. I use the spray on dry hair in the morning so I can brush and tie her hair up with ease before school. I was a bit weary online after reading a few reviews that said it leaves hair sticky which I have found the opposite. After the first brush, the brush just glides though making it quick in the mornings. The scent is really nice and I normally avoid pear scented products as the smell can be quite strong but this is lovely to use. 

RRP- £1.29 

Witch Naturally Clear Cleansing And Toning Wipes

I recently won the whole range from Witch on an Instagram competition and I've only just sorted though it all and had a look. I have a bit of a lazy beauty routine on the evenings where I just like to use a wipe and be done with it. By the time the kids are in bed and I've tidied up from the 3rd time I want to be in bed myself. 

Witch cleansing and toning wipes are easy to use and are perfect to pop in to a bag for when you are on the go. With extract of natural witch hazel, the soft wipes provide convenient cleansing leaving your skin feeling refreshed and clean wherever, whenever! I liked the scent they have off a real clean refreshed feeling after use. Cleans skin and helps tighten pores. Quickly removes make up and dirt.

RRP- £3.39
