Winter Skin

My Winter Beauty Picks

The cold, wet and windy weather is playing havoc with my skin. Dry, chapped and lacking that healthy boost it has in the summer months. There are so many products out there to fix every beauty problem, but if you’re anything like me you haven’t got the cash to be splurging on expensive creams, lotions and potions.

There are a few key beauty products that I use that seem to be doing the trick. They don’t cost a
fortune either.

Keep your hands moisturised and hydrated with Nivea hand cream with Macadamia Nut Oil

It’s a constant battle trying to keep my lips hydrated. eos lip balm is currently answering my prayers.

This isn’t technically a winter essential. For me it’s an all year round essential! I have searched and searched and I am pleased to announce this mascara actually does what it says. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Volumising Mascara

If your skin is feeling dry give this Organic Rose Hip Oil a try. It’s the bee’s knees.

I always find picking a foundation tricky. I am yet to find the perfect one but Maybelline hydrate + smooth foundation is working out pretty well at the moment. Mix with a drop of moisturiser in the day for a fresher look.

This is my splurge product but it’s totally worth it. Lancome Hydra Intense hydrating gel mask. Apply a thick layer, chill for five minutes then remove with a tissue or dry flannel. This mask feeds your skin leaving it super smooth and hydrated. It’s my winter wonder product.

Last up is Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance. It’s a lightweight conditioning spray for weak and distressed hair. It’s perfect if your hair gets in a tangle easily. I have been using this for a few weeks and I don’t know how my hair coped without it.


Travel Essentials

It may be Monday but I know you’re all thinking about the weekend already. If you’re heading away this coming weekend here is my selection of essential things you need to pack. These products are perfect if you are restricted by airlines liquid rules or packing everything into your car.

Travel Essential


1. Eos lip balm in pomegranate Raspberry. The best balm in town, it’s hydrating and perfect for hot summer days.

2. Venus Snap with embrace razor. This is my star product, it may be small but it’s pretty mighty and is a must pack item for any trip away. It has 5 curve-hugging blades and ensures you have stubble free legs, so in my eyes its pretty essential.

3. Hawaiian Tropic silk hydration face lotion. The best sun cream for your pretty face. It’s non-greasy, ensures you don’t get frazzled in the sun and it’s super smooth.

4. Batiste dry shampoo. This needs no explanation, pack it, use it, have great hair!

5. Aveeno positively nourishing calming body lotion. I have tested this out recently and it’s fantastic. Super hydrating and it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.

6. L’oreal magic skin beautifier BB cream. Light enough to cover blemishes and ideal for the summer.

7. Sephora nail buffer block. My nails always seem to need attention when I am away. Pack this puppy and you can file, buff and smooth all in one go.

8. Maybelline lash sensational black pearl mascara. I must have tested a few hundred mascaras in my time (slight exaggeration) and this one is a favourite. It does what it says on the tube giving you fluttery beautiful lashes.

9. Paul Smith roses eau de parfum. This is my favourite scent. It always gets comments and it’s super refreshing and sweet.
