new beauty productsOrigins Warm Down Lava Scrub
I’ll admit that I think this is a little bit gimmicky, I don’t know if you really need a body scrub designed especially for post gym but I have been using this one for a few weeks and have been loving it. This is the first body warming body scrub I have ever used and the shower-activated Volcanic Ash which warms on contact with water is suppose to help ease muscle tension as well as purify. I’m not too sure if it really does that but it’s a beautifully gentle scrub which I find to be super luxurious and relaxing because of the warming sensation. It’s a little more than I usually spend on a scrub but it’s the perfect pamper product and I really look forward to using it.

Goldwell Kerasilk Repower Volume Blow Dry Spray
I have been loving salon designed hair products recently and my most recent discovery is the Goldwell Kerasilk Repower range. My favourite product is this Volume Blow Dry spray as it has heat protection but also adds volume to my hair without being sticky and difficult to work in.

SinfulColors X Kylie Jenner
If you’re a Kylie Jenner fan and want to buy something from her beauty empire but don’t fancy paying the custom charges for a lip kit than you’ll be happy hear that her collaboration with SinfulColors is available for just £3 from Superdrug. I went for the colour Miss Chief which is a dusty lavender/pink shade with tiny specs of silver shimmer which is luckily barely noticeable on the nail and is just a typical me colour.

Jo Malone London Carrot Blossom & Fennel
This might be a big statement but I think this might be my favourite Jo Malone scent ever and it’s really really grown on my since the first time I tried it. It’s light and summery with (as you’d imagine) hints of carrot and fennel as well as apricot and white musk. It’s a great travel friendly size which I think might make it my summer holiday scent.

Soft & Gentle 2 in 1 Shower and Shave mousse
Not the most glamorous product but essential and it’s been living in my shower for the last couple of weeks. It’s designed for intimate skin and pH balanced but have been using it even to shave my legs and found it to work really well without irritating my skin. If you ever have issues with irritation shaving the bikini line (although it’s probably worth switching to waxing if you do) then this is a great product to try as it’s the only shaving cream I’ve seen designed with this area in mind.

I was having a think about Cult Status Beauty products, this real beauty industry favourites and trying to work out what I have also personally fallen in love with. I have picked my favourite inexpensive products that are not only loved by me but also most of the beauty world.

Weleda Skin Food (Available here)
This isn’t a product I use daily but it is one I always have on hand if my skin is feeling particularly dry. It’s filled with organic sunflower seed oil and extracts of wild pansy, camomile and more. I particularly like this in the winter when my skin is fighting with the wind and cold.

L’Oreal True Match (Available here)
Dubbed as a dupe for Armani Luminous silk I would argue this is one of the best foundations you can buy for under £10. It’s a perfect medium coverage that can be both built up and sheered out, it’s the perfect everyday foundation.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish (Available here)
Although this isn’t a necessity product it sure makes life easier, remove your nail polish in a couple of second and no need to faff about with cotton wool. (They also do a toe version now)

Soap & Glory Smoothie Scrub (Available here)
My holy grail scrub, I am able to remove all of my fake tan without it leaving me red-raw. It leaves my skin looking silky smooth and feeling amazing, I’m currently all out and I feel like I have lost a leg- it’s really that good.

Batiste Dry Shampoo (Available here)
I’ve searched high and low for a product as good as this and although I think I have found a good rival (more on that another day) this is still number one. I would say I have been using this for about 8 years (gosh, that sounds crazy!) and even if I go find something I like just as much I can’t see this going anywhere. It’s great to keep greasy roots at bay, adding volume as well as texture or simply giving fine hair a bit more grip.

L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray (Available here)
This one goes without saying, it’s the best. Shame about the smell.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish (Available here)
I wasn’t sure if this could be included in my ‘budget’ favourites and it’s the only product that retails for over £10 but since you can get a 50ml Starter kit for just £9.25 and cleansers tend to be far more expensive I thought I could justify it here. The Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Cleanser has won 100 awards (congratulations Liz Earle!) which speaks for itself. If you’re looking to take your skincare back to basics, starting to get into cleansers or simply looking for a fabulous everyday cleanser then this is the product for you.

Vaseline Spray & Go (Available here)
This is a relatively new release which has everyone singing it’s praises, it’s light, quick and easy- every lazy girl’s (me!) dream.

Real Technique Brushes (Available here)
Good brushes were the one thing that I could never afford as a teenager and now I find myself automatically attracted and in-love with the Real Technique Brushes which are affordable yet high quality, I just wish these were around years ago.

Barry M Nail Polishes (Available here)
This is anther product that I have loved for years, for under £4 you can pick up a Nail Paint or Gelly Nail Effect polish which has a good colour selection and great formula/finish.

A little while ago I was send a few products from Canadian brand St Grape to try, the range is made up of natural skin care products which are hand made using ancient processes. St Grape brought luxury spa-like products to my bath room… but they’re still pretty affordable.

Exotic Soaking Salts £15– The exotic soaking salts are in a plastic bottle which although I don’t think looks as luxurious as a glass one does seem a little safer especially in a wet bath. The pink salt has a variety of oils making it smell amazing. I love a generous hand full of these in the bath but they are also great to use in a foot bowl or they also recommend placing in a muslin cloth bag and massaging over tired muscles. The pink salt are quite small and therefore dissolve quickly in the bath if you are looking to relax.

Aqua Bliss Bath Scrub £12– The Aqua Bliss Bath Scrub is the best selling product from St Grape and I can see why. Although it isn’t too abrasive it left my skin perfectly smooth and smelling great! I actually don’t exfoliate my body as much as I should but I have been reaching for this pre self tan as I find it helps with the application. It’s also free of nasties so perfect for those with sensitive skin.

Ancient Foot Scrub £25– The St Grape Foot Scrub comes in quite a large 500g plastic tub although I would say it still looks quite luxurious. It is filled with sea salt granules and natural essential oils such as coconut and lavender. This is a great treat for winter feet and the salt really helps to soften any dry skin on the feet.

Invisible Skin Massage Oil £25– Although the bottle seemed full when I received it, it left the box a little oily so I think a little escaped before I received it. I’m often a little scared of oils but this one sinks into the skin beautifully to hydrate the skin although I would still save this for a treat after a long bath. This has a real spa scent and is super relaxing, I also think it looks quite nice in the bath room.

Although it seems that the range may not have been fully developed yet the products are great, luxurious, well priced and multi-purpose.

They are also kindly offering 5 of my readers that chance to win one of their best selling Aqua Bliss Bath Scrub all you have to do is follow my blog and enter your details below. Open world wide. It’s the perfect Christmas treat!
