Mmm raspberry!

The Early-harvest Raspberry range from Body Shop smells ridiculously delicious! Coconut has always been my number 1 choice from the Body Shop and this raspberry range has come very close to that number 1 spot. The shower gel transforms into a … Continue reading

Products I’m really happy with

products 2

These are a few products I’ve been using and have been happy with the results.

Nivea Body Moisturiser Cocoa Butter
I love anything that smells like coconut and cocoa butter so I was thrilled when I found this. This cream is lovely and thick and has a divine smell which I find I can’t get enough of. It will be perfect in the colder months as it leaves my skin feeling soothed and doesn’t leave it feeling sticky.

Nivea Men Power Refresh Shower Gel
Now the you must be thinking “Hang on, there’s the word ‘men’ in that name?” Yip you are right, there is. This is a men’s shower gel that I couldn’t help but buy because of it’s awesome aqua colour that called out to me every time I walked past in the aisle. Even though it’s a men’s product it smells great on me and I love how it foams.

Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner for Dry Skin
The first time I saw this I was a little doubtful that it would work as well as applying moisturiser once you step out of the shower. Well I was pleasantly surprised at how well it does work. It’s perfect for those chilly days when you really don’t want to get out of the warm shower, which ends up leaving you with less time to get ready for work or an evening out. I chose the rich one for dry skin and love it’s thick texture. This will be ideal for the colder months.

Avon Moisture IQ Shampoo and Conditioner – for all hair types
I have really oily roots and dry tips from heat styling and colouring my hair. The Moisture IQ range is the perfect range for hair like mine because its moisture knows where it’s needed. After using it my hair feels soft, is shiny and doesn’t feel weighed down. It also doesn’t make my hair fluffy which other products like this tend to do.

Avon Advance Techniques 360 Nourishment Moroccan Argan Oil Heat Infusion Treatment – for all hair types
This heat infusing treatment is yet another product which is great for my dry tips. One box contains 6 of these little tubes which are little gems filled with an argan oil treatment. Pop one in a cup of boiling water for a minute, apply after you’ve shampooed, leave on for a few minutes and rinse. And voila, you’ve spoilt your hair to its very own treatment.

Solutions Make-Up Removing Eyepads
I never go to bed with make-up on! I would rather trudge to the bathroom half asleep and stand there, still half asleep, and wash my face until I’ve removed all of my make-up. These eye make-up remover pads already contain make-up removing solution and are great for removing waterproof eyeliner and mascara. So if you are too tired to wash your face then give these a go. They are also great to take with you to gym or for a weekend away.

Clean & Clear Fruit Essentials Facial Cleanser Energising Berry

I found this face wash in a small supermarket in Papua, Indonesia, and wish we got it in South Africa. It smells like strawberries when you use it,  contains small bursting beads filled with energy that pop on your skin and help flush out impurities, is oil free and won’t clog your pores. I have dry skin and it hasn’t irritated it or dried it out. Oh, and I can’t get enough of the yummy smell when using it!
