Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche
Perhaps an odd choice given the season, I used the last few spritzes of this up last year. This is usually a Spring/Summer staple for me as it is incredibly fresh and zesty, but I had a new bottle waiting ready for the warmer months and a few sprays left in this bottle, so I was using this after a shower as a body spray. I have been using this on and off since it launched in 2007 and it remains a favourite of mine.
Lush Snow Fairy
As you can see from the packaging, this is the old style bottle from 2011! I like to stock up on Snow Fairy as it is limited edition and only released at Christmas. I used the last of my 2011 supply up at the beginning of December 2012 - just in time for Lush to start selling it again. There is something about this pink, glittery body wash that smells of pear drops that I can't get enough of!
Body Shop Satsuma Body Scrub
My love of the Body Shop's satsuma range knows no bounds - you can read more about that here. This is a lovely 'scrubby' scrub with nice rough textured particules that really feel like they are sloughing away at dead skin. Nice.
Smell divine too.
TIGI Bedhead Some Like It Hot Shampoo
My local TK Maxx has started selling these giant salon sized TIGI shampoo and conditioners, so I thought I would try them again. I used the range almost religiously in my teens - favouring the Dumb Blonde range at the time. I am pleased that TIGI have started making a lot of their shampoo free of SLS now - including this one. I used the majority of this up through the summer and also on holiday last year. It is a very strongly lemon scented shampoo that is nice but distinctly average. I wouldn't purchase this particular one again.
Soap & Glory Righteous Butter
Another Righteous Butter bites the dust! I love this stuff. It's inexpensive and a damn good moisturiser for the body. The scent is a bit like marmite, you either love it or hate it. I've already started a new tub of this, thank you Santa!
Liz Earle Orange Flower Body Wash
I've lost track of how many bottles of this I have gone through now, it's such a lovely body wash to use. Smells beautiful and feels moisturising. Definitely a bathroom staple.
Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser
Another staple for every make up bag. Simply the best and the ONLY tinted moisturiser I use. Amazing coverage and flawless skin. New one on the way to me!
Original Source Mint Chocolate Shower Gel
In this household, we go through many, many bottles of this stuff. My husband is a big fan so I decided to try it out and I really enjoyed using it. It smells AMAZING. In fact, it smells so good you would believe it is edible. I'm a bit addicted to anything mint chocolate flavoured or scented - I just wish the scent of this would linger round for a bit longer after a shower.
Dior Addict EDP
According to my mother, this is the scent she most associates with me, from when I still lived at home. It is possibly one of my most repurchased perfumes and I'm only loyal to a very select few perfumes. This is definitely one of them. To me - this is sexy, sultry and just divine. I love it. I received a nice big bottle of this from my parents for my birthday, to replace this.
Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen
This is Dior's equivalent to YSL Touche Eclat - except it is 100% better, in my humble opinion. This hides tired, dark circles and highlights cheekbones beautifully. Also contains enough pigment to be an effective concealer, too. A definite repurchase.
Body Shop Body Butters - Satsuma & Mango
These two bring it to a grand total of three body butters used up at the end of 2012 - can you tell my skin was suffering with the cold weather and central heating?
These two are always either in my bathroom or bedroom - love the scents and love how they moisturise my body. Already repurchased!
Nailtiques Formula 2+
This is my go-to nail strengthener and the only thing that works on my brittle, peeling, soft nails. This give incredible strength and make them grow faster than I have ever seen. I made a huge mistake of not repurchasing this straight away and trying other strengtheners - Essiw Grow Stronger/Faster and OPI Nail Envy actually made my nails a whole lot worse and they are back to being short, broken and in a terrible mess. Eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new bottle of Formula 2+ - I will NEVER stray from this again.
