Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is very important for me.
This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .
And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I stillRead More
Last week I have published a sweet mini wish list, and I have actually already bought several products during the weekend.
I really wanted a shower oil because regular showers gels just dry our my skin in this cold weather. I’ve bought Yves Rocher Oriantal Shower Oil, and so far I really like the delicate but nice scent and that my skin is definitely not so dry afterwards. By the way, I was highly recommended Ella Bache shower oil. I’ve never heard of the brand, to tell the truth, but I will find it on-line.

I have already posted about the bath and body oils that I love so now I want to show you the face oils that I like.
I love using the oils in the evening before the cream, massaging it in. These days a lot of brands make oil with high quality ingredients that don’t break you out but moisturise and nourish your skin.
Estelle & Thild Rose Otto Facial Oil Dry, Mature Skin (£45)
This is an organic skincare from Sweden which a loving mother created for her daughters ( hence the name). It smells nice, moisturises and nourishes the skin without leaving it oily or greasy. This brand actually just launched at Zuneta so you can check it out there.
I also have two Angela Langford oils (£22.55 each).
Repair & Renew – Q10 & Vitamin E Face Oil
This is the one that I use myself, I massage two-three drops in the evening on my cleansed face and I can definitely see the difference in the next morning. It makes the skin smooth and radiant, without clogging pores or leaving an oily residue.

A lot of people have asked me for some body creams reviews as I have very dry skin. So this is why I will be writting about some body creams/balms/lotions that I love in the following few weeks.
We will start with Elemis Pro-Collagen Body Cream.
It is one of the most expensive creams (£49.00/$90 for 200 ml at Timetospa) I have used so I was expecting a lot from it. And it does stand up to what is promised!
So what is promised?
