NEW Olverum The Body Oil

Was it last year I shared Olverum Bath Oil with you? It's lovely stuff, a high-end brand, with gorgeous packaging, and I just don't have a bathroom that befits it. But after major renovations over the last three months, the bathroom in our flat will just have to stay as it is for a wee while longer. But that doesn't mean I can't use the lovely stuff to brighten up the shabby showerroom, does it?! Olverum the brand hasn't launched a new … [Read more...]

Winter Body Care

If I have one beauty resolution for the New Year it's to take more care over my body care. I am fastidious with my application of facial skincare, and completely random and hit or miss with my body care. And in the winter, you can't be like that. Dropping temperatures and rising heating temperatures make our skin prone to drying out. So, time to get yourself a good body care product - and I am telling myself this too. One of my all-time … [Read more...]

Vegan Body Yoghurt from The Body Shop

The Body Shop launch a new range of body moisturisers this month - Body Yoghurts. And they're 100 per cent vegan. Let's be honest, body moisturising is a pain, agreed? According to research 35 per cent of women in the UK don't use a body moisturiser - because it takes too long to apply. So, these new fast-absorbing Body Yoghurts take just 15 seconds to absorb in to your skin. They also come in gorgeous tubs - who doesn't love scooping the … [Read more...]

Body Care Beauty

I'm very neglectful of my body care beauty routine it has to be said. I rarely moisturise, I use the same shower soap all the time, and I hide my dry limbs under thick tights in the winter, and ignore. I do have palmoplantar psoriasis, so, even in clear spells, I am wary of using anything on my hands (it affects the palms of my hands and soles of my feet) that night cause a flareup. But, that's my excuse - whats yours? Time to sort out your … [Read more...]

Beauty Bargain of the Week – Argan Oil Body range

We can all spend a fortune on beauty products, but we don’t need to. Every week, I’m going to bring you my ‘Beauty Bargain of the Week‘  – a product I’ve used, and would recommend, and that, on most occasions, costs less than a fiver! What’s not to like! Argan oil is something of a 'beauty buzzword' this year. It's a plant oil produced from the kernels of the Argan tree, which is endemic to Morocco and the oil is valued for nutritive and … [Read more...]

Darphin’s Satin Body Oil

I love body oils. I have dry skin, and body butters and moisturisers sometimes just don't cut it. But, I find a body oil, applied to damp skin before I get out of the shower always leaves my skin soft and smooth - at least until the next day. So, when I received the new Darphin Nourishing Satin Oil, I was happy to give it a go. It's a dry oil formula, so it doesn't have that 'oily' feel and it is jam-packed full of essential oils ready to … [Read more...]
