Live in The Lightđź’•*

If you're an avid reader of my blog, you'll probably know by now that I am a big lover of trying new brands. Whether they're small, independent brands or large-scaled, well-known brands, I'm all for it. I'd never heard of Live in The Light until their PR got in touch with me. After having a nosy through their website, it was clear to me that they had a large selection of products with varying scents too! I settled for trying three of their items; a body butter, sugar scrub and facial mist. But their stock doesn't stop there; they also have vegan handbags, haircare, makeup and much more!!

Whipped Body Butter - Mango and Peach* || £9.95 || First things first, this genuinely smells like a yogurt. As the name would suggest - mango and peach - it's super fruity and sweet, but I personally love that. It's a fair-trade African and cocoa butter, blended with organic Moroccan argan oil to help nourish and hydrate your skin. It's a hydrating body butter for extremely dry skin, including eczema, psoriasis and sun-damaged skin, but also dry hair and thin nails! As much as I love the scent, the formula is quite messy. When you look at it, it looks like your typical body butter, however when you begin moisturising it into your skin, it melts in a way and becomes quite greasy, which I did NOT expect at all. It took a few minutes to dry into my skin, which I can deal with, but the results are totally worth it; it leaves my skin feeling so soft and thoroughly moisturised. I decided to lather my legs in it one day after shaving and boy, I can totally recommend doing it! The only thing is that the tub is smaller than I expected, but not to worry!

Sugar Scrub - Wild Cherry* || £14.50 || Although there were a few sugar scrubs, I instantly decided to try this one because of the cherry scent - and it's absolutely gorgeous! Unfortunately, same can't be said for the products itself in my opinion. I had a bit of a disaster with it. I've had a hit and miss with sugar scrubs in the past but did have high expectations for this one. First things first, I found it way too waxy and greasy. It left my bath a bit slippy which I was not a fan of at all. And, when it came to washing off my skin, it just wouldn't? I had to scrub my skin with soap to wash it off. I am rather annoyed that I didn't like this product more, but hey ho, it is what it is! Despite saying that, after drying my skin, it left my skin soft, but it was a bit too messy for my liking.

Victorian Facial Mist - Lavender and Rose* || £15 || I had one of the Superdrug Vitamin E Hydrating Facial Mists years ago, and I love how it left my skin, so I was intrigued to see how this one lived up! Although it's a facial mist, it has 3 purposes; traditional toner, refreshing mist or hydrator. Personally, I've only tried it as a refreshing mist cause I felt my skin was a bit dried out from all the warm weather we've been experiencing, and it just helps my skin feel refreshed and hydrated. I haven't used this much, but I will be publishing a separate blog post all about it, putting it to the test to discover how well it performs all 3 purposes!!

I've really enjoyed trying out these products! Although I wasn't a big fan of the body scrub, doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it either! I recommend giving the brand a check because their products smell good enough to eat.
