I don’t usually write posts like this – but I wanted to share the products I’m loving these days…
First, on our way to Dubai in July, I was browsing through the Duty Free catalogue and came across this…
Tinted lip balms are my new thing. I don’t tend to wear make-up during the day, so these would be perfect for those days when you have to dress up a little. They came in a pack of three, which was perfect. And yes, the fact that they’re called ‘Chubby Sticks’ did make me giggle.
During the holiday, I went into Sephora - I love this store. I could buy millions of things in there, but manage to restrain myself. I went in with the intention of buying more Chubby Sticks.
I found them and bought two more. What I didn’t realise was that they were Chubby Sticks Intense.
This actually worked out well. This meant I could use them when I went out in the evening (and wearing more make up), as the colours were more… Well, intense!
They moisutrise well and are long-lasting.
I’m going to buy more next time I travel!
I usually use Palmer’s Cocoa Butter as a full-body moisturiser. I ran out months ago and have just been making do with random moisturisers – none of which did the trick.
I borrowed my sister’s Vitamin E Body Butter from The Body Shop while I was in Dubai and loved it. So much so that I bought my own before leaving.
It leaves my skin SO soft and smooth, it’s amazing. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that it’s in a tub. I’d much prefer it if it were in a squeezy tube or bottle.
When I went into The Body Shop to buy the Body Butter, I saw their Almond Hand & Nail Cream. I picked that up too.
The thing with me is that I buy products like this *remembers Benefit eye cream from two years ago* and then don’t use them regularly (or at all). I can honestly say (hand on heart) that I use this hand cream at least twice a day. It is brilliant! It keeps my hands soft and moisturised. I can’t tell you if it makes any difference to my nails as I’ve started biting them again (I know!).
So… If you’re going out shopping and want to treat yourself – buy any of the above products. You won’t regret it!
