Body Lotions


Heyo,
I am going to do a little body lotion review. This is only going to be a short one as I am only reviewing 3 lotions.
I am going to start off with
Yes To Carrots body butter. This is 'C Through The Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter'
I used to be OBSESSED with Yes To products, they are awesome because all the ingredients are natural, this is blended with carrot seed oil, has carrot juice, pumpkin, sweet potato and dead sea mud all crammed into one pot, which is bloody fantastic! This is really great for anyone suffering with dry skin, it keeps your skin moisturized for ages. The smell of it may not be everyone's cup of tea but I think it just smells really creamy and slightly sweet, it's a natural non chemically smell.





Secondly I have these two gems from a brand called Ginger & Co. I think they are quite a unknown brand but I thought I'd give them a go!
First I have this body lotion, it's called 'Soft On You Daily Lotion' it does make my skin really soft. The smell of this reminds me of Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash. It contains mallow, lemon balm and rose. The product packaging is in a 1950's style which I think adds a nice touch. I like how it feels on my skin as it's not too oily and takes seconds to absorb, it also leaves my skin smelling delicious!




I then got their hand cream called 'Hand It To Me Dreamy HandCream' it again has the same scent as the body lotion. This really keeps my hands soft and hydrated all day long. I feel it is very important to regularly moisturize hands as you are constantly using your hands all day, everyday and they can get dry,sore and damaged so pampering them from time to time is wonderful as they will definitely thank you for it!
Side note: The one thing I loved that is written on the tube is this 'every boy in the town will want to hold your hand' I just thought this was really sweet!




Let me know if you have ever tried these, and what your thoughts are in them!

My Nightly Routine


Hey everyone,
Today I am going to go through my nightly face routine for all that may be interested in what I clean my face with. Side note, I also do this every morning. 


To start off I like to cleanse my face. I like to use Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm. I slightly wet my skin beforehand then I apply the cleanser to my face and neck in a circular motion. I then use cotton wool balls soaked in water to rince off.
Anyone who has never heard of Elemis it is a British spa and skincare brand. If you're interested click the link below to check out their site.

I then either pat dry my skin or leave it to dry naturally. Once dry I will quickly take a cotton ball and use Darphin Micellar water on my face and neck. This stuff is really good as it not only neutralizes the bad effects of tap water but also remove a any dirt that may still be lying on the skin in a gentle matter.



After this step is done I will tone my face and neck again with cotton balls. I like to switch my toners now and again so I like to either use Darphin Purifying Toner or Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner.















Lastly I apply moisturizer, I use Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
This leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and looking radiant.




And that sums it up for my daily face routine,
Hope you enjoyed, if so don't be afraid to leave a comment
