8 Products I've Been Loving Lately

If I am very honest, my skin has not been at its best, as a result of an incredibly amount of stress in my life (and the fact that I am a total stresshead) and the cold winter weather.
My skin gets quite dry at time and it takes a lot to moisturise it. Plus, I have had loads of breakouts on my face and that's driving me mad, because I eat well (most of the time) and I drink loads of water. I guess it's down to stress but I am gradually improving my skincare regimen because I want my skin to get back to its original state (smooth and clear.)

In the meantime, I have been using products for my body, all of which I have been very impressed with. For myself, I can't just use any product and every product for my skin, and I need to be able to use the right sort of products.

I have a bunch of products that I have been using so much over the past several months, and I just can't stop making repeat purchases:

1. Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant with Pure Cocoa Butter
I moisturise my skin thoroughly so I don't like to use thin creams and lotions. Body butters are the best creams for my body, they moisturise my body so well and the moisture lasts on my skin. I use cocoa butter and shea butter and the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant with Pure Cocoa Butter works so well on my skin and leaves it smelling sweet.

2. Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips
I am so prone to dry and cracked lips it's ridiculous. I have always had this problem and it gets worse during the colder seasons so I never ever leave the house without lip balm. A while ago I went shopping in Superdrug and because I bought certain products and spent over a certain amount, I received a free tin of Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips and I have been using it ever since (thanks Superdrug!) I usually avoid buying lip balms in tins so I don't take Rosy Lips out with me, but I like to use a lot of it in my lips before I go to bed (important beauty hack people!) It leaves my lips feeling soft and moisturised, and it has a pink tint in it too.

3. So... Body Mists
I love body fragrances and I never ever leave the house without a fresh scent on my skin. On special occasions I like to use perfume, but day to day I like simple but sweet-scented and floral fragrances. I'd been trying to move away from body sprays to body mists, and that's when I discovered So... Body Mists. They smell so nice, and they have a range of sweet and floral scents.

4. Superdrug's Body Butter Cocoa Butter and Vanilla
I have been using Superdrug's Body Butters for years and my favourite is the Cocoa Butter and Vanilla. It smells so nice and it moisturisers my body so well. In fact, body butters are the only types of moisturisers that work the best on my skin. This product is literally one of my favourites. But if your budget is a lot higher than mine then I would highly recommend purchasing body butters from The Body Shop.

5. Superdrug's Body Scrub Cocoa Butter and Vanilla
I don't know where I have been but I cannot believe how long it took for me to discover exfoliaters and body scrubs. Honestly, Superdrug's Body Scrub in Cocoa Butter and Vanilla is amazing! It leaves my skin and face feeling super-soft and smooth. I use this when I'm having a shower and then I apply Superdrug's Body Butter in Cocoa Butter and Vanilla for the best results.

6. New Look's Pure Nails Hand Cream
I bought this as part of a set with New Look's base coat nail polish. My hands are prone to getting quite dry, so I often use hand creams and I never go out with it. I use hand creams with aloe vera, cocoa butter, shea butter and vitamin E. New Look's Pure Nails Hand Cream is enriched with shea butter and vitamin E, and this cream leaves my hand feeling very soft and smooth. Plus, it smells nice too!

7. I Love... Chocolate Truffle Nourishing Body Butter
I bought this as a part of a set for my birthday a few months ago, and oh my goodness, it smells delicious! It smells so strongly of chocolate truffle and it makes my skin feel moisturised!


8. I Love... Raspberry & Blackberry Bubble Bath & Shower Cream
I bought this as a part of the I Love... set for my birthday (see previous point) and I love the smell. It's quite strong but I like it like that. I don't like to use soap bars when I'm showering (unless I use Dove's soap bars) so I like to use shower creams and shower gels instead, and I definitely recommend this one.
