Winter Favourites

Time for another seasonal favourites. I know it's definitely not the end of winter (and probably won't be until like April, sob) but I feel like it's been wintry for long enough that I know my firm favourites of the season. Here goes:

Lush Helping Hands Hand Cream | I spoke about how good this is in my manicure routine post (here) and it just really is the best hand cream I've ever used. It's meant for people who wash their hands a lot like nurses, but if you've got dry hands in general or if you just like your hands to be smooth and nourished all the time this is your guy! Being Lush it smells great too of course!

Botanics Organic Facial Oil | I never used to use a facial oil because I can get quite oily skin (rookie error, apparently they're actually good for oily skin and all that jazz) but since I've started using this I've seen such an improvement in my complexion. Any redness or blotchiness has gone, it feels so nice to apply and although it smells good it's not too heavily scented so is perfect to apply before bed. 

Avon Magic Effects Nail Varnish in Copper | So this is a very Christmas/New Year themed nail varnish so I'm a bit late to the party, but who says you can't have sparkle in January? I adore the colour and the finish of this. It does chip fairly easily, but being textured you can just touch up without having to redo all your nails! 

Lush Yog Nog Bath Bomb | So I went into Lush to buy a bath bomb and I always find it so difficult to decide because they all smell so amazing, but once I smelt this I was definitely decided. Gonna throw it out there and say this is the best smelling bath bomb from Lush. It smells like toffee, but not sickly sweet, just the right amount of sweet. It made my bathroom smell amazing. Unfortunately I think it was a limited edition for Christmas which is gutting so if anyone wants to help me start a petition to have it all year round that would be great. 

Topshop Joni Jeans | I bought these jeans just before Christmas and was like 'why did nobody tell me about these jeans before?!' They're the comfiest jeans I have ever worn, it basically feels like wearing leggings but you look like you've made the slightest bit more effort. To begin with I was apprehensive that they would make my thighs look ginormous, but I guess it just makes them look the size that they are and if that offends anyone then I don't really care because I'm probably wearing comfier jeans than them. 

What have been your favourites through winter? Have you tried any of these?
