My love affair with Leonor Greyl

Almost a year ago I made the wise decision to stop using products with silicone on my hair and I literally threw away over £200 worth of hair products and then realized I had nothing to wash/condition and style my hair with and had 2 days to find something, before my hair turned into a messy grease ball.

Why you should be putting oils on yo' face

In this day and age I find it really hard to believe that there's brands out that tell people not to put oil on their faces, particularly if they have oily skin! I mean c'mon people!!!

In order to be healthy all skin types, including oily, need a balance of water and oil and the right oil can be especially beneficial oily skin as it balances the oil production. You fight fire with fire, if you give your skin the oils it needs, it won't need to produce as much sebum. Most people think they have oily skin but what they have is unbalanced skin that is dehydrated and so it produces more oil to try and balance itself.

Best body lotion for dry skin

This is definitely on my top 3 body lotions ever! The other two being the Rituals Honey Touch Rich and Nourish Body Cream ¦ HERE which at £17 I use very sparingly on very special occasions and the Eucerin Intensive Lotion ¦ HERE, with 10% urea, I tend to use it once a week after a long bath and then comes the Garnier Ultimate Blends Restoring Body Lotion which is my fail-safe, go-to, ride-or-die body lotion. I always have 2 on the go plus backups.

REVIEW Bare Minerals Mineralixirs Facial Cleansing Oil

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this beauty as soon as it launched but my cleansing oil stash was so big I only started using it a few weeks ago. 

The Mineralixirs is a range formulated with 5 different oils (Grape; Sunflower; Apricot; Rose and Camellia) and is designed to moisturize and repair dry flaky skin, which makes it perfect for Winter dehydrated skin like mine.
