Out With The Old, In With The New - In Collaboration With CB12

staying fresh for summer

One of my favourite things to do at this time of year is have a good clean out, in particular beauty, make-up and hygiene products. I love making space for new products! Out with the old, in with the new, as they say!

Updating your beauty and skincare products ensures that you stay as fresh as possible. However, as well clearing room for the new things in your life, it’s important to get rid of old beauty and lifestyle products that may be well past its shelf life.

Don’t continue using a product that you’ve had for a long time because if it has gone bad, it will do damage to your skin and general health. I am collaborating with CB12 on this blog post to inspire you all to have a good ol’ Spring clean! So with that in mind, I’d like to show you 5 new products that have been helping me stay fresh for the new season!


CB12 Great Breath For 12 Hours
CB12 Mouthwash is a part of my daily routine. I use it twice daily to effectively keep my breath fresh and minty throughout the entire day. The long-lasting effect is down to CB12’s unique formula of zinc acetate and chlorhexidine to neutralise the formation of the substances that cause unpleasant breath. A quick 1-minute rinse and gargle in the morning will help you kick-start the day and give you a boost of confident. It works so much better than all of the other mouthwashes I’ve ever used before.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
This is my favourite cleanser of all time and I go through these really quickly so I’m repurchasing every 3-4 months. It’s really important to make sure you’re not using skincare products that are past its sell-by date otherwise it will have an adverse effect. A nicely cleansed face helps you look fresher and brighter, and makes a great canvas for all of your Summer make-up!

Dr. Jackson Face Oil
I swear by facial oils, I use them throughout the year and they do wonders to my skin! It gives my skin a radiant, dewy glow which is perfect for the warmer months! The only problem is that most facial oils only have a shelf life of 6 months, so I find myself replacing them quite often even when they bottles are still half full. Don’t be tempted to keep the oil after the date even if there’s quite a bit left in the bottle. I learnt this the hard way and ended up with very scaly skin! 

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue
Need something to make you look fabulous and radiant during Spring/Summer? If your complexion is looking a bit dull, then check out bareMinerals Complexion Rescue, one of this Summer's beauty must-haves! I personally like to switch to a lighter base at this time of year, as I find it too uncomfortable to wear full coverage foundations when it's hot. The Complexion Rescue is a light and hydrating tinted gel cream that takes the best of a BB cream, CC cream and tinted moisturiser.

Laura Mercier Sugar Scrub
A body scrub is definitely pretty high on my beauty essentials for Spring/Summer to get myself prepped for Summer dresses, swimwear and bare legs! After finally finishing a tub of body scrub that I bought last year, I can tuck in to my tub of luxurious Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Sugar Scrub. Using a small amount in the shower will get rid of dead skin cells, help your skin feel smooth and make you smell totally delicious for the whole day!
