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?

Revolution pro foundation drops review!

Testing Testing 123!
 I have heard a lot of good things about the revolution pro foundations so obviously i had to try them out!

They are a drug store brand which are available in Superdrug and are extremely affordable!
i have tried quite a few revolution products and they haven't disappointed! makeup revolution seems to impress me more and more everyday! and the brand seems to be extending and adding more additions to the brand like the revolution pro range. So its only fair that i try the new range right?!

well they must be popular because in my superdrug they didn't have much stock in the pro full coverage camouflage foundation which is the one I'm desperate to try! (next time!)
so instead i went for the foundation drops in F5 which i should of probably gone for F4 but i can still work with F5 its just a teeny bit darker but i can still work with it so its fine!
I didn't actually realise but on the website it has details of the numbers and what skin tone it is fo…

why professional over highstreet? (hair care)

As a hairdresser i get asked a lot about the best shampoo's you can buy in a high street store! and my answer to that? NONE.
I always advise my clients to go for professional shampoo. Most of the time the response we get is " but high street brands are a lot cheaper" and yes there is a reason for that...they are full of crap! i wont go into the science part but they have a lot of  harsh chemicals in them that do nothing good for your locks!. You are basically pouring plastic on your hair, alot of the cheaper brands have a lot of silicone's in them, which might lead you to think that its making your hair lovely and soft, but your just coating it and not actually, cleansing your hair ...so then it gets greasy and itchy quick?... i wonder why!

 We do not recommend professional products to gain the money, we actually care about your hair!
they don't have the harsh chemicals in them that the cheaper brands have in. If you colour your hair they don't strip it out! …

my favourite products for a pamper evening

I love a good old pamper evening! from having a nice relaxing bubble bath with all my favourite bath products to a good face mask! you name it, if you call it a pamper evening you go all out! right? bath, hair, face, nails, blisssss! although i will be honest with you, i don't actually enjoy painting my nails but i do like it once they are done and are looking pretty!

So first thing is first BATH! literally my favourite thing ever. so we choose a nice bubble bath or a
bath bomb! but we are going for my bath and body works, a thousand wishes bubble bath and ohh myyy it smells insane and guess what?! the bubbles are insane too!
next up, a nice shower gel and yes! again a bath and body works one....I'm addicted to them they smell incredible and are so soft on the skin! if you live in the uk like i do and aren't lucky enough to have a bath and body works here i have a post about how to get hold of them right here in the uk yay! (if you want to check that out too)
