Best of 2013 || Skincare || Body and Face

Hey Beauties...
So I'm back with another 'Best of 2013' post for you today. This post is going to be all bout the skincare products I have been loving over the past year, body and face. You can read my 'Best of 2013 Haircare' post HERE.

 This was very hard for me to narrow down to 5 especially with body as I change up my Shower gels and body butters/moisturisers all the time especially from winter to summer, but I decided to chose the ones I've used up the most.

So lets start with the Body products.

Nip+Fab Dry Leg Fix || Soap&Glory Hand Food || Lush Snow Fairy || Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter || Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Scrub

-Nip+Fab Dry Leg Fix:
This is an absolute god send! I cant get enough of this stuff!! I mostly use it in the summer as that's when I have my legs on show. I was introduced to this through a free sample in Cosmopolitan Magazine and then went out and bought the full size. You can read my review HERE

-Soap&Glory Hand Food:
 Admittedly this is a product I have only started using a lot towards the end of the year. Purely because I haven't needed to but in the winter my hands get extremely dry cracked and sore from the cold weather and constantly having my hands in water, cleaning products or washing them alot! This has really helped my hands this winter and deserves to be included in this post!

-Lush Snow Fairy
I have said this quite a few times but this has been an absolute favourite in our house. Even my 3 year old Tia loves to use this! This is actually our second bottle and we do have another one backed up haha!

-Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Body Butter
The Ginger sparkle collection is definitely my 'go to' collection in the winter months I love love love it! I even have a hand lotion in the bath room all year round! it smells divine!! I love all the body shop body butters I have about 4 or 5 different ones but sadly couldn't include all of them in this post! If you haven't tried Body Shops Body Butters I suggest you get down their and try them! They are by far the best moisturisers I have ever used!

-Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Scrub
OMG! the texture of this is amazing! It is really gritty which I love as I feel like it really gets the dead skin cells off my body and leaves me feeling baby smooth! and the smell is to die for! I have the shower gel and body butters in this scent aswell and together they are just heaven in a shower! Highly recommend these scrubs!

Now onto Facial Skincare:

Garnier Moisture Match Dull Skin and Oily Skin || B. Pure Micellar Water || Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion || Simple Cleansing Wipes

-Garnier Moisture Match Dull Skin and Oily Skin
I love this range! Its so nice to actually have a selection of moisturisers to suit your needs! I use the Oily Skin Moisturiser for the summer months and the Dull Skin one for the Winter months when my skin needs that little extra boost! These have definitely been my all time favourite for 2013

-B. Pure Micellar Water:
This product I find is very gentle on the skin and great at taking off your face make-up! I love using a cotton pad and just going over my face with this once I have taken off my eye make-up, just to make sure I have removed everything and my face is clean. This is probably the best cleanser I have used to date!

-Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion:
This is my weekly or fortnightly pamper treat! I think its brilliant! It really gets deep into the pours and cleans the skin nicely! There are tiny tiny little beads in this which exfoliate the skin perfectly without feeling scratchy at all! My skin always look brighter and more awake after every use of this! it also feels super soft and has got rid of the annoying little pimples I used to have on my chin! Hightly recommend this if you haven't tried it before.

-Simple Cleansing wipes:
I have tried many many wipes in my time, but I always find myself going back to these! I use these every single night to take my make-up off! They are really gentle on the skin and remove pretty much all of my make-up, as I said I do go over my face with the Micellar Water to make sure everything is removed. But I cannot express enough my love for these! I don't think I will ever find anything that will take their place!

So that's it for my 'Best of 2013' Skincare. As I mentioned in my previous pose (here) I will be doing four posts in this little mini series so keep an eye out for the next two posts to come!

I hope you liked this post. I would love to know what skincare products you have been loving throughout 2013 so please leave a comment below with your links and I will be sure to give them a little read!

    Just to let you know me and a friend are hosting a Valentine's Day Beauty Swap and if you would like to partake that would be amazing. I have attached a link and hope you check it out :)

    1. The dry leg fix is the only thing I have tried from nip+fab but if the rest of their products are like that then I'm dying to try them out haha!

      oh its great because it doesn't feel like your scrubbing your face but then after you've used it its like a new layer of skin :)
