Winter Beauty Essentials


Considering the current weather conditions here in the UK, I couldn't think of a better post to share with you than my Winter Beauty Essentials. All of the products I am going to share are one I couldn't live without during the winter months.

I absolutely adore Soap and Glory products and these are two of my favourites. Every night when I have a bath or shower, these are essential and on those days when I'm in a rush I mix them together on my body buffer as they work perfectly together and leave your skin feeling silky smooth and refreshed. The body wash "Clean Girls" is in S&G's "Mist You Madly" scent and contains natural vanilla fruit and orchid extracts and what's even better is it has has a built-in moisturising system meaning I can skip on the moistursing on those days I'm feeling lazy or when I'm in a hurry. The body scrub "The Scrub of Your Life" is in the "Original Pink" scent and definitely lives up to its name! This scrub is perfect for my skin which easily gets dry especially during winter time and leaves it feeling instantly smooth. One of the best thing about S&G products is the scents last on your skin for at least a good few hours. 

Usually, I hate body lotions because I hate that sticky texture you get which makes you feel dirty and clammy     which isn't nice after you've just had a refreshing shower. However, this is completely different, although it is quite thick in texture ( a little goes along way!) it dries in quite quickly and leaves you feeling and smelling absolutely beautiful - even after one use, you can say goodbye to dry elbows and knees. 

Soap and Glory's Hand Food is my absolute favourite hand cream! Having only recently purchased it, I could now no longer live without it. Unlike other hand creams, this absorbs almost instantly and doesn't leave behind any sticky residue. Although I'm not a lover of the scent, I would never go back as it is just to perfect and leaves my hands feeling baby soft. 

Liz Earle Eyebright - £10.25 150ml

I am a huge lover of Liz Earle products especially their Cleanse & Polish and their skin tonic. Although I use this product all year round, I would say it work particularly well during the winter months when your eyes are feeling dry due to the cold air. Every night I soak a cotton pad with small amount as it is a runny liquid texture - almost like water - and just swipe it over my eyes. However, when I have a headache or painful eye area I soak two pads and lie with them on my eyes for a good 10-15 minutes instantly cooling and soothing them. After using this product for a few days, you can definitely notice less blackness around your eye area.

Lip care is essential during the winter months and this Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush is a must have and tastes amazing! The scrub is made from castor sugar and because it's from Lush there's no need to worry about any harsh chemicals. All you need to remember is too not scrub too hard because you don't want to end up with chapped, scratched lips. The Nivea Lip Butters are also great, every night before bed, I apply this so I wake up with smooth lips which are perfect for applying lipstick the next day. 

VO5 Smoothly Does It - £3.89 100ml

Within the first signs of humidity and dampness, my hair turns into a huge frizz ball. I received this VO5 product when it was first launched in a copy of Cosmopolitan magazine and fell instantly in love. This cream is non-sticky and is great and protecting from heat; all you need to do is apply a tiny amount to the palm of your hands and glide through the ends of wet hair so when you dry it, there are no signs of frizz and you are left with sleek, smooth hair whilst protecting from any damage - it's a win win situation.

What are your winter beauty essentials?
