Since I first laid eyes on Desert Essence I've definitely become a fan, with this natural American brand being both affordable and their products always seeming to have a high quality feel to them. For some reason I get a longing to return to the brand in winter, probably due to the indulgent scents, and so recently stocked up on their Vanilla Chai Body Wash, Coconut & Lime Body Lotion, and Ginger & Green Apple Shampoo.
A few months back I was sent the Extra Hydrating Toning Gel* by Living Nature. I've liked my previous tries from this brand, so was excited to give this a go, especially with 'extra hydrating' in the title.
This winter hasn't been too kind to my skin so far, and as per usual I've taken this time of the year to stock up on all things balms, butters and oils. I've been returning to a few of my favourite products, as well as trying out several brands for the first time and some of their highly recommended items, leaving me with a now tried and tested assortment of essentials which have seen me through these last couple of months.
Way back in May, Ria from Naturia Beauty held an amazing giveaway to celebrate one year of blogging, and I was stunned to find out that I'd won a prize of Angela Langford goodies! I'd never tried the brand before, but having heard lots of good things I was so excited to get to sample a few things from the range.
The Earth Works Cosmetics is a brand I've wanted to try for quite some time after seeing so many positive reviews and after browsing their range of indulgent and tempting looking products. A little while ago I finally caved in and bought three items to help see my skin through the winter months.
