If you follow me on social media,you will know I was invited down to Dublin last week to check out the new Lidl Cien range. The sun was shining when boarding the train from Belfast to Dublin I felt as if I was heading on my holidays. When arriving at the gorgeous House bar and restaurant I was ushered into a beautiful sun house where the new tropical range was unveiled.


This new range of scrubs,tans, wipes and moisturisers are perfectly packaged in some summery floral branding (I’m all about packaging put a bow on it and Il buy it).Theses products are appealing to both the eyes and the senses as the tropical smells of coconut and zesty fruits just transport you to a faraway beach. But even with the prettiest packaging the question is do they work. So over the past week I’ve been testing out some of my favourites.

I have been using the sea salt scrub in the shower and following up with the firming oil and the coconut body butter. Honest opinon I LOVE the scrub it is super exfoliating and leaves my skin super smooth and the coconut body butter leaves my skin smelling good enough to eat.However my favourite product (which I will be picking up every week with my groceries) is definitely the firming oil. I adore it! I have dry skin but this sinks in and is a fabulous moisturiser for my legs and tummy area. I feel like it is firming up my wobbly bits but I have a lot of those.  Even if it didn’t firm I would continue using this product just for the smell it is gorgeous,it’s like a summer cocktail in the sun.


So if you want to get your paws on some of these fab products heres the release dates and prices:
