Miracle product: Body Shop Body Butter!

Body Shop Body Butter is officially the best moisturiser I have ever used! Its been around for a while but this is the first time I’ve owned any. I remember a friend in school who used to apply it religiously and she had the softest skin. Now I own some for myself, I feel like I’m finally in on the secret.

I put it on last night after my bath, and this morning my skin feels like it did 5 minutes after applying it! My skin still smells like coconut, its ridiculously soft, and my feet still have that gooey post-pedicure feeling. My hands are softer than they’ve been in months, and I apply hand cream regularly. Normally 5 minutes after moisturising, all traces of moisturiser are gone. But 12 hours after using this product and my skin still has that luxury goddess feeling you get after a hot bath and good moisturiser.

There are so many flavours (scents) that there is bound to be the perfect one for you amongst their vast range. In this house we are coconut heads. We have coconut shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap…and in the kitchen cupboard theres coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream. But if coconut isn’t your jam theres shea butter, cocoa butter, mango, satsuma, strawberry, hemp (!?), olive, honey, pink grapefruit and many more.

If this is already your staple moisturiser, well done. If not, don’t waste any more time! This really is a miracle moisturiser.


Miracle Product of the Month: May

I know it’s a bit late but it’s still may so without any more delays, here is my miracle product of the month:


My mum got this as a present for her birthday earlier this month from (shoutout) Sophie Stephenson. It is the nicest smelling hand cream you will ever come across, fact! I first started using it all the time because I loved the smell, and then I realised that my usually dry, painful hands were no longer dry and painful. Even the dry bits between my fingers were gone. 

I consider myself a bit of a hand cream connoisseur, because when I was nursing I had the worlds driest hands due to washing them every 5 minutes and using alcohol gel every 2 minutes. I’ve tried a lot of different hand creams since then and this is my favourite. So get yourself to Neal’s Yard and try it. I came for the smell, I stayed for the softness.
