Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot

Hi there! Today’s post is about these Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot. These bath salts promise to “restore calm and serenity amidst modern life”. You’re supposed to use 2-3 handfuls of these salts for a nice, relaxing bath.

I think these bath salts are good, but they’re not my favourites. I like the mix of epsom and Himalayan salts, and I’m happy that these bath salts have their own scent. However, the scent is quite strong, and it will linger in the bathroom for hours. I’m fine with the scent, but not everyone loves incense and bergamot. I also found these bath salts to be a bit drying.

In order to be able to enjoy these bath salts more, I’ll now mix these (half and half) with my regular Westlab Himalayan Salts which make my skin feel amazing. If you’re interested, Westlab Mindful Epsom & Himalayan Salts With Frankincense & Bergamot are available as 1kg for about £6. I paid £2.99 (half price offer at Boots).

HAUL! New Products From Boots, No 7, Sanctuary Spa, Marks & Spencer, Fragonard, Olay, Westlab, Radox, Dead Sea & More

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since the post-Christmas sale started. I’m saying most of the stuff because I always forget a lot… OK, let’s take a look at the goodies!

Boots Skincare Treats The Discovery Collection – this was £10 on Boxing Day. I bought 3 of these. The 2 moisturisers are worth £25 alone! The set would have been great value for full price = £20, but it was the most amazing bargain for half price on Boxing Day!

I bought more face masks – but what else is new? Some half price Disney masks, some £1 masks from B&M Bargains.

The Sanctuary Spa Celebration Hamper – this was £20 on Boxing Day and it had the following goodies:

These look amazing!

I also bought fragrances from M&S. The first 2 were £9.50, the third was £12.50. All of them are repurchases.

I bought a number of different Westlab bath salts, the one above was £2.99 at Boots.

I also bought more Radox bath salts. The one above was £2.25 at Sainsburys.

2 more Radox shower gels – these were about £1.30 (or so) each at Superdrug.

Fragonard Belle De Nuit fragrance – £20 at M&S, the Olay Face Wash was £2.09 at Boots, the the Botanics Face Scrub was 33p (£2.33 plus 200 Advantage points for buying a Botanics product).

I also rescued 2 Dead Sea Natural Mineral Soaps from the clearance bin.

And this is it! Quite a bit, eh? Well, what can I say. I’ll always be a bargain hunter! Thanks for stopping by today! 😊
