Winter Beauty Essentials

Wednesday, 9 November 2016

It's coming up to that time of the year again where the days are shorter, duller and colder, everyone's ill and your skin starts drying out. But do not fear, it doesn't have to be all doom and gloom! With my winter beauty essentials, they're nearly guaranteed to brighten up any miserable day!

Everyone loves a cosy, winter candle, especially when it's made with 100% natural & ethical ingredients! I got the lemongrass and lavender candle, and it definitely smells more lemony rather than lavender, which is slightly disappointing but I still really like it. I'm not that keen on the artificial smelling candles that you can get in most shops, so this is a great natural alternative!


Even though your skin may be drying out, it's still really important to exfoliate your skin at least once a week. I particularly like using this one as it's very gentle and not too harsh on the skin. This also contains jojoba beads, which unlike micro-beads, are biodegradable and are a more sustainable option. It's also packaged in a glass jar, which can be re-used afterwards!


Christmas may be looming around the corner but it's never too early to start treating yourself! I'll be doing a full review on this gift set soon, and I can't wait to see how this works. I feel this will be the perfect product to include in a Sunday pamper evening!

I've noticed that my hands are starting to dry out and look absolutely horrible, so it's time to whip out the hand cream. Most drugstore hand creams probably feel great but they contain a whole variety of nasty ingredients that could do more harm than good. That's why I've opted for an organic and natural alternative.

This hand cream contains 99% natural ingredients and is actually no more expensive than say your usual hand cream from Boots and Superdrug. I put this on at night before I go to bed and let it sink in. By the morning my hands feel like new! 

You've probably already ditched the summery nail polish shades and replaced them with berry tones and darker colours. Unfortunately the majority of todays nail polishes contain a whole list of harmful chemicals. See the image below for more information. 
Luckily this nail polish is lanolin-free, sodium laureth sulfate-free, phtalate-free, no mineral oils or silicon, paraben-free, phenoxyethanol-free, toluene-free, formaline-free, formaldehyde resin-free, camphor-free, nickel-free, rosin-free, chrome-free, carmine-free, fragrance-free, preservative-free and contain no ingredients of animal origin. Oh and the deep red shade is absolutely stunning. What's not to love?!
