Empties: Body Creams. Elemental Herbology, Ahava, CeraVe

I go through body creams like there’s no tomorrow, and here is my previous feature on the 3 body creams  I’ve used up. So here are 3 more, and expect more of these posts in the future.

Important note for new readers: I have very dry skin.

I really like Elemental Herbology but never tried anything for body from them so the Watermelon and Cucumber Body Moisturiser (£22  Look Fantastic and Amazon) sounded like a great thing to begin with.

This is an easy-absorbing light lotion which leaves the skin hydrated and silky. I also really loved the cucumber and watermelon combo, I  found it light and refreshing. Last but not least, I am also a fan of the bottle, minimalistic and chic.

I’d say it’s a lovely lotion for warmer months,

Shower Oil: A Winter Must Have?

I have very dry skin so I have to give it extra love in winter.  Here are some tips from my dermatologist on how to take care of winter skin which really helped me.

Although it was a while ago, I am still using the Weleda soaps, after the calendula,  I had a rose one and am using the  lavender one now.

But what about the shower oils? We all know the cult favourite  L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil (review) and I also wrote about the Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil  (review) which I love.

However, there are so many new options on the market these days.  Here are just  two of them, which I’ve picked up a while ago.

This is why when I’ve found out about their pillow spray, I had to get it right away [this was a few moths ago].  And, as you can tell by the photo, it’s almost gone now.

As you would expect,

Ouai Haircare Wave Spray Review

I really love the bed-hair done right hair  style. I do not like when my hair is too glossy and too perfect but, at the same time, I don’t want it to be too crispy and crunchy.  This is why Ouai Haircare Wave Spray is a perfect product for me.

It contains rice protein instead of the salt as in most similar sprays which is
