I want to start with saying that this weather is playing havoc with my skin, hair…well everything really. So I wanted to show you some of my favourite beauty essentials I reach for at this time of the year.
So I’ll jump right in!
The first buy this time of year for me is from VO5’s ‘Smoothly does it’ range This is the Tame and Shine spray and it also acts as a heat defense when you are styling your hair. The heat activated formula is great for your hair before you use your straighteners and it manages my frizzy bits after I’ve blow dried.
My second must have is Rimmel’s 60 Second Super Shine Nail Polish and my one is in the colour ‘Rose Libertine’. I love this colour as a transitional shade from Summer to Autumn. The dusky tone suits a lot of the clothes that I wear this time of year.
The third on my checklist is Pantene’s Argan Oil Hair Treatment. This stuff is like hair elixir, I swear! I don’t know about you but at this time of year my hair feels dull and dry, it really needs some life put back into it. I apply this liberally to wet hair, mostly mid length through to my ends. Once I have blow dried it, my hair feels so smooth it’s unreal. I also rub a bit through my ends when my hair is dry if they are looking a bit fried.
My fourth fancy is Lush’s Vanilla Dee Lite, now unfortunately this moisturiser has been discontinued 🙁 (Lush fans despair) This is the perfect blend of fragrance for me, I often find vanilla tones in body butters or mositurisers smell really fake. This is perfectly musky! Also as a bonus it doesn’t leave behind a yucky oily residue you might have experienced with moisturisers before. I do have a recommendation as you can’t get hold of this one anymore
and it’s Lush Body Lotion, Dream Cream. This has the same sort of texture and ingredients, so it soaks up on your lovely skin just the same. Give it a go, you won’t be sorry.
My fifth and final buy is my most loved Baylis and Harding Foot Cream. I love Baylis and Harding anything really so I’m not too precious on what scent I have. This sweet manderine and grapefruit scent is to die for. This time of year my feet really suffer, I think it’s my reluctance to give up sandals and flip flops 🙂 This cream is super moisturising and feels so luxurious. Best of all, it lasts flipping agessss because you only need a tiny bit on each footsie. Bargain!
Well there you go my lovelys, click on the product name links to whisk you away into internet land to buy these goodies if you like. I don’t think you would regret it. I’m fairly frugal so nothing on there is gonna make your recoil in horror at the price 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this post, leave me any comments about your best buys. I’m always on the lookout!
