Beauty Basics | My Essentials

Here are some of the products that I use on a daily basis on my face and body. Some are quite new that I've only just started using recently and some I have been using for quite a while and I'll definitely continue to use.

Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash Gel

I bought this product from Superdrug for £2 (however I think it has gone back up to full price at £3.19). I'd seen it on quite a few blogs in the past so I though I'd try it out. I've been using it for about a month now and my skin does feel smoother after I use it. It's 100% soap free with vitamin goodness :) I definitely think this is a product I will continue to buy. I have seen a change in my skin; it's a lot clearer and a lot softer.

Planet Spa Dead Sea Minerals Exfoliating Body Scrub

This body scrub is from Avon, it retails at £5 however, there was a deal going on 2 for £6 (in case you haven't noticed I am a bit of a bargin hunter haha!) I LOVE this product. I've been using it for a very long time and I've gone through a number of bottles. It does an excellent job. My legs get really dry sometimes and when I use this, it exfoliates all the dead skin and leaves my skin really smooth. I use it a lot during the summer as I have a lot more skin on show, and even during winter. I use it all over my body and it's just amazing! :)

Boots Traditional Glycerin and Rosewater

This product is from Boots and costs £2.32. I use this as a toner before I cream my face. I've only just started using this, but after I use I can feel that my skin is a lot soft. I just put it on a cotton ball and apply it in circular motion on my face and neck. Plus, it has a really lovely smell!

Cocoa Butter

I have been using Cocoa Butter all my life and I swear by it! I use Palmer's Cocoa Butter (£3.73 from Superdrug) on my upper body; my face, arms, torso etc. And I use the Hollywood Beauty brand on my lower body as it is a lot thicker and works much better on my legs. I'm not sure of the price but my mum buys it from Afro-Caribbean hair shops. They both smell AMAZING and they work wonders for my skin. As I said, I have been using them for a long time and I know I will continue to use them.
