February Favourites………………I’m Loving My Body!
It’s that time again! The majority of makeup i have been wearing this month has been spoken about in other favourite posts, so i thought i would concentrate on what i use on my body this month.
I take skin care routine of my body as seriously as i do my face. My skin is becoming drier with age and i get the odd rough spot around my ankles and elbows; therefore. i like to use good exfoliants and moisturizers. Of course, what you put into the body is equally as important as on it, so i try and drink plenty of water daily to cleanse the skin from within.
1. Body Shop Body Brush.
I brush my skin at least once a week. This helps with circulation and stops any more cellulite forming. The bain of my life!! It aids muscle tone and keeps skin clear so toxins can be released effectively, easing stress on internal organs. Strengthens the immune system and also prevents premature ageing. Yes! All that from a £8 brush and 5 minutes of your time.
Every woman should have one no matter what their age is. Of course, exercise and drinking and eating healthy goes a long way to, although i never could resist the odd bar of chocolate!
2. Body Shop Drench Sponge.
I have been buying these for years. Great soft and gentle body wash sponges. I don’t like those scrunchy things. Sorry! Not sure what they are called. A good gentle sponge does the trick for me and it suds up very quickly too.
3. Clinique Sparkle Body Exfoliating Cream.
Lovely menthol smell to it and it is quite gentle and very effective. I use this once a fortnight and it leaves my skin super soft and removes those rough spots. It is also very refreshing in the shower. Great product, a little goes a very long way.
I was very lucky and managed to get a pack of three of these very cheap over Christmas. I got the Blood Orange and White Pepper, Lemon and Sage and Grapefruit & Aloe for the price of one of them alone. I really like them all because they have a refreshing incredibly natural aroma and actually moisturize the body really well without being heavy or sticky, which is the reason i don’t really use other body butters in general. Bliss just get it right. A little goes a long way with this product too.
5. Roger & Gallet Ginger Soap.
The Packaging is stunning and they make a gorgeous present. These French beauties last a long time and keep the same intensity of fragrance from start to end. Worth every penny and get them every year for Christmas.
My only disappointment is that L’Oreal have discontinued so many of the fragrances and Blue Lotus was my all time favourite. Shame on you L’Oreal! I thought i would try out Ginger this year and so glad i did. A lovely warming scent and not harsh like you would expect.
6. Body Shop Honey Bronze Lip Balm.
Love Body Shop lip balms. This cute balm has a lovely honey scent and keeps my lips smooth and soft during the winter months. It also has shimmer, so can be worn over a matte lipstick. Loving the packaging too.
There you have it, some of my favourite body products for the cold winter month of February. What is your skin care routine for keeping a healthy looking body?
Have fun and i will see you all soon. 😉
