my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tacky feel and i don't stick to my bed sheets. even though its winter, the current one I'm using is actually a summer scent! bourbon strawberry and vanilla! no other reason other than i just have a massive collection of them and just grab whatever i fancy using, and i fancied a summer scent! - why not?!

lip balm- i have soooo many lip balms, but the Cath kidston one is the one i have definitely reached for the most and its always in my bag! smells lovely and it does the job! so moisturising- and it tastes good too!

hand cream- my hands are in water alot with work, so its hard to keep up with moisturising my hands when they are in water again minutes later, but when I'm not working, i slather it on! best way for me is applying it once im in bed so it can really absorb into my hands. and it tends to work! - no dry hands here! the zoella wonder hand works a treat!

face cream- i use the clinique moisture surge, the consistency is almost gel like! and I'm the same with my face creams like i am with my body, i don't like the tacky, greasy feel so this one is perfect for me. It sinks in really quick and you can't feel it after so it doesn't make your face feel heavy but keeps it soft and moisturised.

Too faced sweet peach glow- now i couldn't do my staples without putting this in here! One thing about winter skin is that it can look a bit dull. but nothing what a shimmer blush and a highlight can't cure! we all want to look glowing in the winter and look revived so what better way to do it?! its smells like peaches which is just amazing, but it does what its meant to, gives your skin that glow!

what are your winter staples?

Zoella splash botanics range

I have been meaning to write this post ever since the splash botanics products launched! but i am FINALLY getting round to doing it!
 i absolutely love all of the ranges Zoella brings out, she never disappoints me with what she brings out! but this range seemed to of caught my attention a lot more, first of all can we just appreciate the packing?! It is just insanely beautiful and its right up my street as I'm obsessed with the palm and monstera leaf prints at the moment! Botanical is very much in right now for summer! and i feel like this range just seems really adult like should i say?! it definitely has more of a grown up feel to it!


 The new range you get:

the botanic eau' body mist -This is sooo different to what she has ever released before but it definitely has a 'summer vibes' scent to it. Its very fresh and floral! its a great price too at just £8! and i love the bottle!

so soft lip oil- I'm really into my lip oils at the moment! and this one smells of cher…

Sanctuary spa wet skin moisture miracle review

I really like sanctuary products and when i saw this i was really intrigued as to how it would work. here in the UK we are currently having a rather long heatwave! which I'm not complaining about but i don't know about you guys, i love moisturising after my bath but in this heat you don't want to feel any type of stickiness once you have cooled down from a nice bath or shower! so this is when i thought i would give this a go its the wet skin moisture miracle it says on the front  'super quick and hard working body lotion that locks in twice the moisture, up to twice as fast. The easiest and quickest and most effective way to moisturise your body.'
i have  mine in the classic scent but i know there are 2 other scents to choose from, i just really like the classic scent.


How it works -  You basically do all your normal stuff in the bath or shower, and once you get out. you apply it whilst your soaking wet! i must admit it did feel sooo weird doing this at first! the c…

My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!
 I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them!
there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash.

I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones tend to be …
