Lanzarote excursions

We're recently home from a weeks holiday in Lanzarote (you can read our holiday diaries here and here) We had planned to go on quite a few trips whilst we were there but their recent heatwave meant we had to change our plans a bit as it was just too hot to be walking around too much.

Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion

When we were going on holiday I wanted to get a new moisturiser to take away with me as the sun always makes my skin feel really dry and tight. I have been loving Benefits make-up at the moment so decided to try something from their skincare range and chose the  Triple Performing facial emulsion. This is the first item I've tried from their skincare and I had high hopes for it.

Benefit state that the Triple Performing facial emulsion hydrates, protects and comforts and it has an SPF of 15 which was perfect for my holidays.
The bottle is 50.3mls.

I have to mention the packaging first as I loved it! The box is really bright and eye catching and looks great on my dressing table and the bottle in side is just gorgeous and so unusual, it reminds me of an old apothecary bottle. It has a pump dispenser which I always like as you can pump out just the right amount.

The cream itself has a slightly thin consistency but a little really goes a long way. It glides onto the skin silkily and feels amazing on. The emulsion soaks into the skin quickly, within 5-10 minutes, and doesn't leave any stickiness or greasiness.

Whilst I was on holiday I used this morning and night and it really helped to keep my skin moisturised after the sun. The SPF in it wasn't high enough for my skin in the temperatures we were in though so I did have to use sunscreen as well.

I have been using it daily, on a morning, since we've been home and I love how it makes my skin feel. It is definitely something I'll be buying again once it has run out.

Benefit Triple Performing facial emulsion is £23.50 and can be bought directly from Benefit or its usual stockists.

Afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie

Going for afternoon tea is something I've always wanted to do but just never seemed to get around to doing so when I recently saw an offer for one on Groupon that Ellie would be able to come along to as well I snapped it up. It was a voucher for afternoon tea for two at Patisserie Valerie.
