So guys, I have decided to do a month of beauty reviews and blogs and see how it goes. My fashion posts will remain, I am just giving you a more personal look at my beauty regime. Today's blog is all about what I have in my shower at the mo and couldn't live without. Have you tried any of these?
1. L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil
This almond shower oil is to DIE for!! I am obsessed with it for quiet a while. The oil transforms into a lavish, soft foam that leaves the skin feeling soft and satin like. This does not leave any kind of an oily residue, so do not be put of by the word oil. A huge plus for us gals is that it can also be used for shaving your legs, 2in1. My favourite thing of all is the smell.....it has a divine, soft smell that is subtle yet feminine. The shower oil comes in three sizes, a travel size, a 8.4 fl.oz with a flip lid, and a 16.9 fl.oz with a pump. You can also buy refill pouches which I think is amazing. Go try it!
Price- €21.88 (Medium Size)
2 Sanctuary 2-in-1 Moisturising Butter Scrub
This is my go to scrub.....exfoliates and moisturises......winner! It contains nourishing nut butters and sweet almond oil. I massage it on to wet skin in circular motions, sugar and olive stone granules provide a gentle but successful exfoliation. The combined nutbutters of illipe butter, cocoa butter and shea butter melt onto the sin to leave it feeling silky smooth and moisturised. It also contains the wonderful vitamin E.
3 Soap and Glory "The Righteous Butter"
This award winning body butter its a fab luxury after a shower. It is a tub full of softening shea butter and aloe vera. It has quite a strong scent, but I actually like it! I smooth a handful of this on my upper body, it is lie velvet.....bliss!
4 Coconut Oil
I love this......use it in shower for shaving, as a hair mask, or my fav is to use it as a leg moisturiser. My legs are super sensitive so I tend to keep away from scented lotions or potions on my legs. This is a super natural alternative. It helps prevent dryness and flaking of the skin. Great for anyone with eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and other skin conditions......best of all it is NATURAL!!!

So these are my beauty buys this month:
Garnier Tinted Eye Roll-on
This is one of my favourite beauty products ever. I have major dark circles and this is a miracle worker. It comes in four different shades, one for all skin colours. Concealing and cooling, what's not to love!
Cocoa Brown Tan:
This tan has become a huge sensation over the last few months. It has also become my go to tan. I will be doing an in depth review on this product soon.
Available in pharmacies and Pennys stores nationwide
Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
I have major issues with razor irritation when I shave, majorly annoying. I have struggled for years to find something to help ease the possibility of unsightly red bumps on my legs. This is an amazing razor!! It helps with the initial irritation with a moisturising barrier with every stroke. AMAZING!
Price- €15.29 (Special Offer @ €7.64)
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
I picked this up last week in Dundrum. I have been looking for something quick and hydrating for a while. This is a great buy. Pop it on clean skin before bed and wash excess off in the morning. This left my skin feeling plump, soft and hydrated. Oh and it smells amazinggggg!
