Winter Favourites

I'm truly feeling the cold now and these are my top picks for beating the winter weather:

Vaseline Queen Bee Honeylicious Lip Therapy - Back when I first started using Vaseline it was counted as exotic if you had the Aloe Vera version. Now there are so many scrummy ones to choose from, but this one is probably my most favourite yet. It's perfect for chapped winter lips and smells/tastes amazing!

Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint - This is something I discovered lurking in my drawer from last Christmas so it's only half full, but I'm obsessed again. It's a bright cherry red colour so makes me feel super festive and it stays on for hours without having to reapply.

The Body Shop Body Butter - I love all of The Body Shop body butters, but this is one of my favourite smells! The fruity scent reminds me of summer, but it's a very heavy duty moisturiser so is great for dry winter skin.

Burt's Bees Hand Salve - I'm totally in love with this hand salve. I love the smell and because it's a salve rather than a cream it's much easier to target specific areas that get extra dry in the cold weather like knuckles and in between my fingers.

Lush Imperialis Facial Moisturiser - I never usually spend this much on moisturiser (it cost me £13.50), but had heard good reviews about Lush moisturisers from friends. The money was well worth it. The staff in Lush were really helpful with finding the right moisturiser for my skin and a really tiny bit of this moisturiser goes a very long way so it will last ages.

Have you tried any of these products? If so what did you think? What are your favourites for winter?


  1. I have the Coconut Body Shop Body Butter and I love it! Makes my skin feel so soft and smells great!! Really like your blog!


    1. Aw thank you! I love all the body shop body butters but haven't tried the coconut one, might have to get that one next I bet it smells amazing!

    2. No problem! I love the Coconut one! I didn't see the Strawberry one at my local Ulta(I don't know if they have Ulta's in the UK, it's kinda like Sephora) I'd like to try Strawberry. They had Coconut, Shea, and I think Mango when I went. Any other Body Shop stuff you would recommend?


    3. Ooh the mango one smells good! I love loooooads of body shop stuff, my favourite is probably their hand cream especially the almond one. Their lip butters are really good too x

    4. Ohh, I'm probably going to Ulta today, I love trying new lip balms so I'll have to see if they have the lip butters! We don't have a Body Shop store in WV so fingers crossed! Thanks!


    5. Good luck hope you find them! X

  2. So, I went and they had the Mango one and you were so right! It smells so good, I ended up getting it and I'll probably ditch the Coconut one and use the Mango one from now on! Thanks for telling me about it! xx
