Winter Essentials 2016!

by - November 09, 2016

Hey everyone,

Since it's getting into winter, I thought I would share with you the things I couldn't love with out during the colder months. Enjoy! xxx

The best moisturiser I have ever tried is the Nivea Rich Regenerating Night Cream. This is absolutely perfect for getting rid of any dry and chapped winter skin. The good thing is, one of these £4.19 lasts me all winter and I use it every single day! Affordable and amazing quality, what more could you ask for?!?

Through out Winter I can't help but love a berry lip. The one I have been loving so far this year is MAC's Plumful. It's the perfect rose/berry shade and suits nearly every skin tone so it's perfect for nearly all of you reading this. Another bonus is that it lasts through eating and drinking so it's great for the festive season. All MAC lipsticks are £15.50 - some may think this is really over priced but the quality and longevity of these are incredible!

A bath product that I am using all the time so far this is Zoella's Sugar Dip bath salts. These are from the new(ish) Sweet Inspirations range which is most probably my favourite scent of all the collections so far. It has the scent of macaroons and toasted almonds. These bath salts are surprisingly really moisturising and the scent stays in the room for ages which is a bit of an added bonus. These were £6 and they have lasted really well so far - I have been using them for just over 2 months and they have hardly gone down at all!!!

Another product that I can't live without through is the Lush Christmas range. This year, has so many amazing new products, like Snowie (£4.25) and Ruby Red Slippers (£3.95). And there is also the return of so many long term products like Magic Wand (£5.95), Shoot for the Stars (£4.25) and So White (£3.75).  I always look forward to the release of Lush Christmas but this year I seem to have been even more excited for some reason.

Last but certainly not least, is the Superdrug exclusive Barry M nail varnish in the shade Twinkle Twinkle. This shade was released in the Autumn/Christmas collection and it is the perfect shade for Christmas. It is a coppery shade with fine silver glitter which adds a really nice. The Barry M nail varnishes last just over a week without chipping - only with a top coat of course. They are also really affordable - they retail at £3.99.

Thank you so much for reading, and I will see you very, very soon.

Love Lou
