My body lotion collection

Now that hopefully the cold and dry months are coming to an end, I decided to share all the products that have helped my dry body to survive. I have no idea how I accumulated this many body butters and lotions and cream, but I do like each one of them because of their different consistency. And I like to use them different times too and my body needs them.

I like to use a body butters when my skin feels really dry and I can feel it needing a lot of moisture. However I do not like the thick consistency that much I have to be honest. I usually use these on the weekend, or on days when I can stay in my pjs all day. Because trying to put on skinny jeans after putting on body butter is just the worst! I have The Body Shop Peach body butter, I do love the smell of it, it’s so good! I also have the Snowella Snow Smooth body butter, which has a lighter consistency and it makes my feel skin really smooth actually. I also have another body butter from Soap and Glory, their Daily Smooth body butter, which is not as thick as the Body Shop one, but again I really like the smell, and it sinks in a bit faster.

I much prefer lotions and creams, but my fave is probably a whipped body lotion. I enjoy using the Zoella Double Cream body lotion, mostly for the scent. Although it does a good job at moisturizing my skin. My two faves have to be the Zoella Body Pudding, which I like because it sinks in so fast, and it’s just so easy and moisturizing. The other favourite of mine is the Soap and Glory Smoothie Star body lotion. It is a not as light as the body pudding, but sinks is fairly quickly and just love love the smell of it too. Goes perfectly with my same scented shower cream.

 

So this is my body butter/cream/lotion collection. I hope you liked this blog post and please share your faves in the comments!

Until next time,

Mini Boots Haul

One of my fave places to go and have a wonder around is Boots and Superdrug. Last weekend I was out shopping, so naturally I popped into Boots and picked up a few things, and I thought it would be nice for you to see what I got. I really like reading haul posts and watching Youtube haul videos too. So let’s see what I got.

The actual reason I went into Boots (as I only planned on picking up one thing of course), was a lip liner I heard Kathleen Lights talk about. It was the NYX Slide on, Glide on Lip liner in the shade Nude Suede Shoes. I am very happy with that purchase, I mean I knew it would be good, but it is the the creamiest lip liner I have ever tried (hence the name I guess). I really like the colour of it, it is a pretty nude, not too brown, just maybe a shade darker that your lip. Been also wearing it non stop and I forgot to take a picture first so it’s already been sharpened on the photo. Definitely gonna pick up more shades of this lip liner.

Also here is an unedited photo of the swatch too so you can see the colour:

The next thing I have been wanting to try out for a while actually, was the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray. I have heard good things about it, and about its partner the Dewy Finish one. I wanted the matte one of course, as my face, especially my forehead, tends to get oily during the day. I used it only twice so far, (and I will do a separate blog post on it too) it does minimize the oil breakthrough on my face, but of course after hours of wearing make up, my skin does get a bit oily. I like this setting spray so far.

I didn’t actually need another parfume or body spray at all (I’m trying to use up the ones that I have so I can justify buying a new one haha), but I smelled this one one time before Christmas, and was so sad I didn’t get it then, so I couldn’t miss the opportunity now. Therefore I picked up the Blush Pink body spray by Ted Baker (only for £3). I am terrible at describing scents, to me it is kind of floral scent, which I really like for Spring. If you have a chance, give it a sniff cuz it is really nice.

And the last thing I picked up was a Soap & Glory Rich and Foamous body wash. I have the body lotion, The Daily Smooth, which smells the same and I really liked it, so I wanted to pick up the body wash too. Now I have to perfect combo to keep myself clean and hydrated.

That is all for my mini Boots haul! Which one was your fave? Also did you try any of the products mentioned above?

Hope you have a great Sunday! xx

Current Beauty Obssesions

I haven’t been doing monthly faves for a while so I decided to pick all my fave beauty products at the moment and share them with you!

Soap and Glory shower and body lotion products

First of all I’d like to write about some of the new shower and body products that I have been loving in the past month.  I have never tried any Soap and Glory products before since living here in the UK for three years but I have heard good things about them so I decided to give them a try and I was not disappointed at all. Both the Orangegasm and the Clean On Me shower gels are really good. I use the Orangegasm when I feel I need to be energized for the day. With the Clean on me shower gel I like the fact that it has built in  body lotion as well and it really leaves my skin feel soft and smooth after the shower.

The other two discoveries are actually almost the same product just in different forms. One is the Daily Smooth body butter and the other one is The Smoothie deep moisturizing milk. Both have the same scents to them but obviously the butter has a thicker texture than the milk. Even though I find the milk to be thicker that just a normal body lotion. I find them to do a great job at moisturizing my body all day and I’ve just been really enjoying using them in these past months.

Burberry Weekend perfume

I have had my eyes on this perfume for more then a year now and now I finally decided to treat myself and get it. I’m not really good at describing scents really so I’m just gonna put the information here that I fund on the Burberry website so you can get an idea what it smells like. I would highly recommend though to pop into boots and give it a little sniff if you can.

A sheer fragrance with top notes of tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant. Delicate floral heart notes of wild rose, peach blossom, iris and hyacinth, invigorated by a subtle splash of nectarine. The low notes of cedar wood and sandalwood add depth for a relaxed and fresh scent

YSL The Shock mascara

This is one of my newly found mascaras and I’m in love with it. It gives you sooo much volume and just basically feels like it doubles the sizes of your lashes. It has an hour shape kind of wand with medium bristles. It does smell pretty nice for a mascara too, almost like a hand cream. It can easily clamp up though so be careful not to apply too many coats. But overall it is a really good high end mascara and I feel like it’s definitely worth the money.

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

After using creamy foundations for years I wanted to try out a bit more watery consistency of a foundation. I rarely try new foundations as I like to stick with the ones I know I like and work great for my skin, but I’m lucky I did find try out this one. It comes in a lot of shades so it’s guaranteed that you’ll find a match for your skin colour. I am shade 102. I really like the feel of it on the skin, it is thinner on the skin and you can’t feel it on the skin either which is what I prefer with foundations. It lasts good on my all day does not cake up, overall it is a good drugstore foundation.

L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara blue and black

As I said I don’t really like to change up my foundation, however I’m always on the lookout for new mascaras and I really like trying out new ones. I have been really unlucky finding not so great mascaras in the past so I was sooo happy with this one as it did it’s job and gave me fab lashes. It is a more drier formula so probably easier to apply. It gives you really curly and lifted lashes. Doesn’t really clamp up thanks to its dry formula. A really good and affordable drugstore mascara and the best thing abut is that it comes in colours too. So naturally I had to purchase a blue mascara as well. They also sell purple and turquoise coloured ones as well. Can’t wait to try those ones out too.

Max Factor matte lipstick

With my mascara collection growing I don’t particularly mind if my lipstick collection grows with it too. They are my two fave make up items. I have been loving matte lippies as they are really on trend now , and every brand is releasing their own matte lipstick or liquid matte lipsticks lip paint, name it, a brand has already come up with it. I usually prefer a liquid form that dries down but I saw these lipstick in a Youtube video and I just had to get one of them when I was in Superdrug. I chose the shade Rose which is this really lovely pink shade that I also used in my spring summer make up look tutorial as well. It is a matte lipstick but it is not drying on the lips and actually it stays on for quite a while. I will definitely be purchasing more shades of this lipstick as it is slowly becoming my fave lipstick and the one I reach for the most.

I hope you liked reading this blog post! What are your current beauty obsessions?

Hope you’re having a lovely day/night! xx
