If you are as lucky as me in that you suffer from dry skin year-round, or not, I have no doubt that the mad temperature changes at the moment are wreaking havoc on your skin. Never fear, I have decided to share what has been given my stamp of approval and keeping scaly skin at bay!
Seriously, where would we be without Body Shop Butters? I've been using these for years and to be honest with the great deals online, I rarely don't have one of these on the go! My recent faves are this Duo where one side is a body butter and the other more of a lotion. I have this in Sweet Pea which is a floral scent that usually I don't like however this will be lovely and fresh for Spring. As typical sweet tooth me, the Gingerbread one that I got for Christmas is always amazing, good enough to eat and leaves super soft skin.
I honestly cannot sing the praises of this iRejuvinate Cream of Wonders by Forrest Skincare* enough. I see this as my miracle cream, as fun as the Body Shop butters are, I would swap 1000 of them for just one tube of this baby! The reason? I suffer from Eczema and when I use this, I can actually feel my skin drinking it up. It doesn't feel greasy on the skin and for this reason I keep the 'try me' size on my desk at work, then if I get any flare ups I can apply at my desk without worrying about my clothes. It contains Lupin Seed extracts and Chlorella peptides that actually promote skin elasticity, and it is Paraben Free, always a goodie in my book. Just what weather-battered skin needs!
Finally I bring you my oh my god, smells so good body soufflé. This is a teeny-tiny pot that I use sparingly as I picked it up in TK Maxx and I haven't seen them in since. As a huge lover of everything Philosophy (excepting Purity face wash, we have fallen out. Blog post to come.) because of their amazing scents, this is of course one of my favourites! As well as being moisturising, this gives a light sheen, a favourite for nights out and special occasions.
