my winter homies

Saturday, 3 January 2015

 As the nights draw in, the cold weather can play havoc with your skin. Freezing temperatures, fierce winds and central heating combine in a nasty cocktail that results in dry, flaky skin, a dull complexion. but these products made me go through the dry dull skin and more! 

part 1

Dirty Springwash

Shower Gel

Now it's cold I need some new products that can help me to get out of the cosy bed when I'm hiding from the cold and just loving being lazy. as this shower gel from lush wakes me up and makes me ready for the day I love this shower gel it makes me feel so fresh and clean, it gives me that energy for the rest of the day.
This shower gel is what gives me that kick to have a shower even in an early morning it's so minty and fresh and it can be a bubble bath gel or even a shampoo.
as lush describe the product saying..

A shower gel to leave you feeling minty fresh and alert. Dirty Springwash leaves skin feeling invigorated - perfect after a workout at the gym. Spearmint and menthol create a tingling effect on the skin, and stimulates the mind. Thyme adds a herby note to the fresh scent.

Origins Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser

Speaking of feeling all freshy this origins scrub cleanser got to be in my morning skin routine. My skin feels soft and alot smother. In this origins scrub cleanser they replacing harsh chemicals with natural ingredients keeps the skin in shape and helps to look good and feel great, inside as well as out. For a truly skin-friendly morning routine, I turn to Origins. Their new Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser is completely natural, containing an essential oil blend of grapefruit, lemon and spearmint witch gives me that fresh feeling in the morning, and Panax ginseng and caffeine energise the complexion, removing dead skin cells and boosting cell turnover for more vibrant skin to get rid of that dull skin look.
I think of this scrub as a wake-up call for my skin, it exfoliate and refine the skin's texture. When I use it in my morning routine it make my skin fresh smooth and glowing.

Laura Mercier
Almond Coconut Milk Scrub

This almond- and coconut-scented body exfoliator scrub gently sloughs away dead skin cells, leaving smooth, radiant, polished skin.This scrub is fantastic! Not only does it smell amazing, but it also leaves the skin so smooth! The texture is very creamy with little scruby things witch scrub the your fleaky skin away and the fragrance that softly lingers all day.

Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator

The weather is colder and the skin get drier, i turn to this  cream-gel plumps skin with 24-hour hydration.
its makes my skin moisturised nearly all day without that oily feeling it gives me an Instantly rehydrate. and it helps repair skin's moisture. It's got to be a winter homie.

Skin Drink


If I had to choose one moisturiser for my skin it's got to be this skin drink from lush.When I tried it I couldn't stand the smell of it I didn't like the smell but when you put it on your skin the smell start to smell better and the more I use it the more I like the smell of it, that could be just me because I have seen some reviews on it saying they like the smell of it. 

Now it's nothing about the smell I like this moisturiser because it really is a skin drink when I put it on my skin it just.. drinks it, giving my skin so much moisture and glow, and unlike any other moisturiser it leaves that tiny glow of tan on my skin witch I love. did I mention that will be no flaky dry skin with this skin drink it makes dry, flaky skin incredibly soft and hydrated.contains sesame oil, which is rich in mono-saturated fatty acids.

Lip Balm SPF 15

I just like to keep moisturising my lips and cuticles with this Lip Balm SPF 15 it smells really nice and Makes lips beautifully soft. I really like the sleek and portable polished silver tin.

Soap & Glory Hand Food Hand Cream

I really like this hand food moistener from soap and glory its best to have the mini one i like to just put it in my bag and take it everywhere with me and to have it next to my bed and just keep on moisturise my hands with it, and it keeps my hands really moisturised without feeling greasy or oily, and it smells really nice and lovely.

No Drought
 dry shampoo 

This is my favourite dry shampoo the zesty, citrus fragrance makes my hair smell fresh and clean.It is very silky, but does give a slight matte grip to the hair, adding a small amount of volume it really gets rid of that greasy feeling with fresh smell and if you have a dark hair don't worry about it just give it a good shake and you wont notice it.

L'Oréal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss

This is one of my Favourite lip colours for winter it's a lip balm that gives me the colour I like while moisturising my lips.
