Paul & Joe Body and Hair Mist £11.50

This mist is my new BFF at the moment! Paul and Joe Beaute, have yet again produced a product that I will not be able to  live without!

This spray has been constantly by my side since the first spray, ‘It was love at first spray!’

The aroma consists of orange flower water, roses and wild musk. But the smell of roses is the most prevalent. It’s such a wonderful floral scent, as if a bouquet of 100 roses were right in front of me! (That’s what I daydream about, anyway!)

Weleda, Skin Food Moisturiser £8.95

If it’s good enough for Adele , I want to try it! That’s what I thought after reading an article where Adele sings the praises of this cult Weleda product! She said, ” I wear a lot of make-up when I’m working, so I like to use Skin Food by Weleda because I really feel replenished when I do”.

Nip+Fab Pistachio Sundae Moisturiser £9.99

Wow, this bright green cream is one heavy duty moisturiser! I must say I was slightly taken back at the thought of a pistachio moisturiser, but when I opened it, the smell was so divine, I was a convert immediately! Applying this thick pistachio sundae is a real treat, it nourishes the skin, and almost instantly makes the skin feel softer! It can be used as an all over body moisturiser, or for specifically dry areas such as the knees and elbows.  It can also be used prior to a night out to leave a lovely sheen and fragrance across the skin!

Joint and Muscle Rub

Dr Rose's Apothecary, Joint and Muscle Rub – £4

I love this product! It’s an old fashioned balm, but proves that sometimes the old remedies, are the best! The soothing and aromatic rub comes in a small 20g tin, and my only problem with it, is that I only wish it were bigger!

Dr Rose says:

“This is an old-fashioned rubbing ointment traditionally used for everyday, aching joints and muscles… You can tell by the aroma that it’s doing some good!”

Wild Rose Beauty Balm by Neal's Yard Remedies £37.00

The Wild Rose Beauty Balm has become some-what of a cult favourite, and I can understand why! The moment I opened the cobalt blue jar containing 50g’s of pure rosy goodness, I was in love! The smell of roses is so delicious, it is reminiscent of a typical English garden, full of blossoming flowers. To me, this product is England, in a jar! It glides onto the skin with such ease, and nourishes, as you massage it into the skin. Only a small amount is needed, so the jar lasts a long time. It also comes with a free organic muslin cloth to enable you to try the various suggested uses. The balm is suitable for all skin types, and it has been dermatologically tested. It’s so versatile,  I’m loving finding new uses for it every day! The organic wild rosehip seed oil is one of the richest natural sources of vitamins, including A, B1 and B2. These are essential nutrients, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, which we need to maintain healthy skin.

Sudocrem, The Secret A List Beauty Buy!

Honestly, the very same cream that is used on the bottoms of babies’ around the country! Yes, and I will admit that I too use Sudocrem on a daily basis, and I LOVE it! I’m in good company too! Kimberly Walsh, from Girls Aloud, also admitted to being a fellow Sudocrem fan, she said: “Cheryl and I put Sudocrem on our spots before bed, so we’ve shared that beauty tip with the rest of the group.” Cheryl Cole later confirmed this by saying, ‘It really works!‘ Even in the US, the 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes said, ‘Using it is the best beauty tip ever. It’s amazing!’ There was even a whole scene on The Only Way Is Essex, where the advantages of Sudocrem were discussed at length, so to help ‘Diags’ ,a man from the show, who suffers from severe acne. Lauren Pope from the same show said, ‘It makes a great overnight mask!’

8 hour cream

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream… How Have I missed this Gem?

Whilst reading magazines, so many celebrities talk about their love of Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream, it has become something of a ‘Cult Classic Product’ . I always used to think I must try it. However, one day while watching a friend using it I saw the colour of the cream as it came out of the tube, (it’s a shade of apricot at first, then appears clear once applied), I was completely put off.

Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak – £34.50

THE most luxiourious bath product ever! I love this bath soak, the water is so soothing and relaxing, and the smell is amazing.  Unfortunately, I only get to use it on rare occasions because it is SO expensive, lets face it I can get good old Radox Muscle Soak  for £1, but its obviously never as good.

The Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak is great for aching muscles of course, and rheumatic aches and pains. It provides a deep-heat, aroma-therapeutic remedy, which is a powerful antidote to aching muscles. They have used birch, juniper, clove, alpine lavender, wild thyme and blue chamomile, combined with Mineral-rich Sea Salt to ease tired muscles and recharge the body.

Queen of… Ooh la la! Shaving Gel 150ml – £3.39

Literally, all I can say about this new product is that it’s the best shaving cream or gel I’ve ever used! It leaves my legs feeling ridculously soft and hydrated for days after use. It’s easy to use, feels lovelyon the hands when applying and even makes them feel soft afterwards too. I’ve only recently discovered this product but I know, without a doubt in my mind, I will be purchasing it on a regular basis. It is, slightly more expensive than other shaving gels but I see it as a moisturizer and shaving gel in one and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin or create those annoying little blotches or grazes that comes with the territory when shaving. I’m sold!

MÓA The Green Balm 50ml £9.99

Fabulous product! It’s an organic tea tree based balm which can be used for many purposes and all over the body. I use it for dry skin, itchy skin, use it after shaving my legs, a body moisturizer, for eczema, a facial cleansing balm, I use on split ends and rinse out, can be used on cold sores, bites and grazes to name just a few uses. There is always a pot of The Green Balm in my bag! It has a nice texture and soaks in well. It has a nice subtle smell of tea tree which isn’t as overpowering as the tea tree oil on it’s own. It usually costs about £4.99 for the 15ml handbag size or £9.99 for the 50ml larger pot. This company is firmly against animal testing, so another reason to buy this multipurpose wonder-balm! Here’s the website to get more information and you can also buy it off
