Seven months gone…. it will be Christmas soon.
Here are some of my favourites from the past month.
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Clarifying Lotion – I always like a lotion to my skincare routine and this lotion is good for oily, blemish prone skin as it helps to eliminate remaining excess oil, unblock pores and visibly reduce their size. Skin feels smoother and balances the breakouts . It really does make the skin feel squeaky clean!
Mavala Revitalizing Emulsion For Tired Legs – This is a lightweight lotion which smells like a mens aftershave balm. It is a fantastic product as it really works in helping the legs feel fresh and relive aching on your lower legs. The lotion absorbs into the legs easily and leaves them feeling cool and smooth.
Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – This dry shampoo elevates greasy roots and has a gentle formula and has no heavy scent to it unlike others. It also adds volume and texture to the hair after a day of not washing your hair. It really is good to try all the different dry shampoos on the market and this company has been making them since 1971 so they know what they are doing! A really excellent product.
Moroccanoil Treatment – I have never tried anything from this range. I do find that my ends are dry as I use a hairdryer so I like to add a few drops of oil to the ends to help them. It is a lightweight formula with a very slight scent to it. It really has helped my dry ends and doesn’t make them feel greasy.
Grounded Coffee Scrub with Chocolate Orange – Packaging is like a product of ground coffee but be careful when using it in the shower as it goes everywhere! This is not like a normal scrub, it is a dry formula scrub so you put some into your hands and rub it in. Your skin becomes black, just like coffee. I like the roughness when you rub it in so you know it is a good exfoliator. You can use it on your face but I do not recommend this as it will be to abrasive for your face, especially if you have sensitive skin or prone to redness. My body afterwards smelt of coffee and chocolate orange and it felt quite uplifting. I really like it.
Clarins Eau Des Jardins Smoothing Body Cream – This is a lightweight cream with a beautiful, citrus scent which is really uplifting. It absorbs easily into the body and is non-greasy and is so smoothing on the body. It’s perfect for summer and keeping the body moisturized.
Benefit ‘Gimme Brow’ – It has been out for a while but for me it’s new! The tiny tapered brush has microfibres which allows to fill your brows, fill in the gaps and create a thicker, fuller look and keeps the brows in place. It is a fantastic product and I will have to purchase the bigger size!
