Winter Essentials: Other

Today's post is the counter part to Friday's post which touched upon make-up winter essentials. Today we will talk about my "others" essentials which entails everything from body care to nail care!



La Roche-Posay Lipkar Baume AP
This balm has been my saviour and I imagine it to be a must have A* product for anyone with dry skin. As I don'y have dry skin I have been applying this onto elbows, knees, any very dry areas and it has been working wonders. However what makes this a stand out product for me was when my nose was in flake-city last week, just a few applications of this throughout the day healed it completely. The next day my nose was brand new and smooth! So if you have irritated, flaky skin anywhere on your body, please do try this!

Phyto 7 Hair Cream
The moisturiser for your hair. A very easy hair product where you can't over do it like oils and end up looking greasy! If you suffer from dry hair, especially in windy, cold conditions then you know as much as I do that the hair needs to be nourished, especially the ends! Depending on your hair type you can pick up Phyto 7 or Phyto 9 (for drier hair) and keep it in your hand bag or dressing table and pop it on dry hair whenever it needs some hydration!

Dove Intensive Repair Daily Super Conditioner
I have recently come to discover my favourite hair care routine (post coming soon) and in the super haircare team is this amaaazing conditioner! As you know I am an oily lady, I get oily hair quickly so prefer a shampoo on the more clarifying side however as my hair is long, the lengths and especially the ends of my hair need something to tame and soften them. I hate having tangled, unmanageable hair and love my hair to feel light and have movement. This is exactly what this conditioner provides, it provides my hair with all the nourishment it needs without weighing it down or making it feel heavy. It is the best conditioner I have tried and at an extremely reasonable price! A definite for those who like me, needs to feed their hair with hydration but wants a lightweight feel to it!

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Fruit & Seed Oil
This oil has been accepted with open arms into my skincare routine. I do love a good oil! This oil is perfect as it would be suitable for all skin types! Not only does it feel incredibly soothing on skin which has battled with the days long, harsh winds but it really nourishes your skin. Plus rosehip oil is great for healing scars and pigmentation so is great for pre and post break out! A superb choice for all skin types who want their skin to drink up some goodness and look smooth, plump and hydrated the next morning.

Nuxe Reve de Miel
This is my absolute favourite lip balm. I haven't dabbled in the shockingly expensive Dior Creme de Rose or By Terry Baume de Rose but don't feel that I need or want to! This lip balm is, for me, strictly a night time balm as it really does coat the lips and throughout the night sinks into them. When you wake up you will still feel a light coating of it on the lips but they will feel soothed and hydrated! I find with many lip balms, they work to sooth them but somehow make them feel sorer than before! However this lip balm with be a forever favourite of mine and everybody I know shall be receiving this at Christmas! 

Dior Creme Abricot Nail Cream
A new acquirement in my stash! And a definite luxury one. I have always been a fan of nail oils, rubbing them into my cuticles but recently oils just haven't been cutting it. So before bed, post hand cream application I rub this super thick and emollient cream around my cuticles and it has been making a difference, even my actual nails drink this up! A splurge but if you are suffering from dry nails and cuticles I would suggest this as not much is needed and you get A LOT of it so it will last years.

    1. I seriously encourage you to buy it! There aren't many (if any) products I can wholeheartedly say I 100% recommend and you will also be 100% happy you bought. A game changing product if I ever saw one! x
