I cannot believe it’s November tomorrow! How crazy is that? It’s still pretty warm I think, not winter like at all yet which I can see changing soon.
I’ve had a few little bits and pieces sent to me this month that I wanted to tell you all about, and I thought a roundup post would be a fab way of showing them off.
First up was an amazing pack sent from Rachels organics showing of their new amazing divine pot range. I received two chocolate pots and two vanilla, both were honestly amazing! I’ve bought the chocolate ones since, a clear winner for me. I love how the pots are actually glass, so easy for me to recycle or reuse at home as candle holders. I was also send some amazing treats to enjoy a “divine moment” including bath bombs, bed socks, some candles, a hand stamped personalised spoon and this amazing bottle of prosecco. You can buy the divine range in Sainsburys, Waitrose and Ocardo down the yogurt aisle for around £2 for a pack of two.
The next product I want to mention is go ahead, low fat snack range. I was kindly gifted a selection of yummy products to try.
I received chocolate thins, a thin chocolate biscuit filled with sultanas and orange fruitiness. These are so good, not what I expected for a low fat treat! Each slice contains just 72kcl, perfect for a guilt free treat. RRP £1.99
Next up were yogurt breaks in strawberry flavour. A crispy biscuit filled with a strawberry filling and then topped with a yogurt coating.
These weren’t for me at all, I only like yogurt wet in a pot and a spoon! My husband and toddler loved them though. These were 73kcal a slice, so a bit more than the chocolate ones. RRP £1.99
The fruit bakes range are golden baked bars, filled with fruity filling. I received apple and I loved them. I actually hid the pack from the other so I didn’t have to share them lol! Each bar contains a portion of fruit and contains 133kcal. RRP £1.99
Last but not least were the crispy slices. A fruity filling in a biscuit so light you can take it anywhere. I received the raspberry ones, they’re really nice. You get three biscuits in a pack, and like the rest of the range are packaged perfectly to be able to pack in a lunch for work or school. These are only 57kcal each and also retail for £1.99.
Those clever people over at Aveeno have brought out a book aimed at children to help explain dry skin conditions.
The book is about a girl called Ellie and her pet gecko Eddie. It shows different ways that skin can become dry and uncomfortable and I think, helps to normalise it. My brother suffered with eczema horribly when younger and didn’t really understand why he had to have special bath oils, creams and lotions. A book like this would have helped explain in a fun way, it gets a big tick from me. It’s bright and easy to read, Aveeno teamed up with acclaimed children’s author Penelope Harper to create a series of books that follow the adventures of Ellie and Eddie. The books are aimed at helping parents ad children alike manage and address the difficulties of having dry, eczema-prone skin.
We are a family of dry skin sufferers, mine is mainly my face, Tia all over if bathed too often and Michael really suffers with dry skin down his legs. The Aveeno range is the best I’ve ever found for easing and soothing dry skin. You can buy Aveeno in pharmacies, it’s also available on prescription if recommended by the doctor.
That’s the end of my round up for this month, I can’t believe that when my next one goes live it will be a few weeks before Christmas! Man I’m so excited, are you?
