While you may not get to see much of your body in winter, it doesn’t mean you should neglect it!
Here are some fabulous treats I’ve been enjoying this winter and I’m pretty certain you will too…
Vaseline Intensive Care, CocoaGlow
This beautiful tub of all over body cream from Vaseline smells deeeee-licious and is a god send for dry skin this winter.
What makes it special is that the formula has been infused with mico-droplets of Vaseline Blueseal Petroleum Jelly. These help to unlock the natural glow of the skin, leaving it soft and beautiful!
I love cocoa butter anything, and I love how my skin soaks up this non-greasy formula!
Best part — it is super affordable at only R34,99 for a 350ml tub! Now that’s a bargain!
PS! Whilst were on the subject of Vaseline, don’t forget to enter my Vaseline Blueseal Hamper giveaway. Entries close at noon today, so don’t miss out.
SOiL Ylang-Ylang Soy Wax Melts and Sensual Hibiscus Bath Salts
SOiL is a homegrown, South African brand that’s beautifully packaged, organic and affordable too!
They recently launched their online store (so you can shop this gorgeous brand anytime) and I was spoiled with a voucher to purchase a few goodies.
My favourites that I bought were these Ylang-Ylang Soy Wax Melts (R45 for 8 melts) that you just pop into a burner and enjoy eight hours of olfactory bliss! The aroma will fill your home and create a spa-like ambiance.
The melts look good enough to eat – perhaps because they remind me a little of “buttons” – anyone remember those? They were awesome!
I also got the SOiL Sensual Hibiscus Bath Salts (R125 for 350mls) because I love anything that enhances my bath time ritual. And I’m already a lover of the SOiL Hibiscus range (remember this post). Smells like heaven!
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
Crisnail Happy Days Hand & Body Milkotion
First up, how cute is the packaging on the Crisnail Happy Days Hand and Body Milkotion? And the smell is pretty delicious too!
Its super light weight and leaves my skin feeling silky soft and smelling good! I’ve been using it mostly as a hand lotion, but come summer, this will be my best friend, as I don’t like overly rich creams in summer, and this one is just perfect!
Made in Spain, it is available from selected professional beauty and nail salons at R205 for 200mls. To find a stockist near you call Exclusive Beauty Solutions on 011-791-4027
Skin Republic Foot Active Treatment
Like a foot spa in a bag! I got to sample this foot treatment from Skin Republic way before it hits our shelves in November! I know, it’s a little while away, but I wanted to give it a mention before my space gets overcrowded with our upcoming summer launches, so bear with me on this one!
You don’t want to miss out on it!
It’s specifically targeted for all ya active peeps — so if you’re a runner, gym rat, yogi, cyclist or all round active girl (or guy) your feet are in for a treat!
It contains 22 plant extracts which help to revive and refresh those tired feet. Peppermint, Avocado and Tea Tree help soothe irritated and inflamed skin. Argan Oil, Collagen and Vitamin E deeply moisturise, softening rough, dry feet. Mint, Eucalyptus and Thyme promote circulation and deodorise.
I love the little booties, because they just make life so much easier!
Retail price will be R42.99 and available Edgars, Red Square, Dis-chem and Clicks.
