Hi Stunning!
I hope you are having a wonderful month even though it is so cold in London! As a New Year’s resolution I decided to find some time every month for myself and relax. This month I have been loving the products from Champneys as not only are they beautifully packaged, they smell gorgeous and are perfect for a pamper evening!

Champneys Cloud Nice Indulgent Bubble Heaven 
I like to start my evening by lighting some candles, playing my favourite music and a hot bath. I pour this Indulgent Bubble Heaven into the bath and enjoy! It has a lovely, sweet smell, which fills the bathroom, creating a SPA atmosphere at home. I must say, I am loving the packaging, the design is gorgeous and makes the products look quite sophisticated, if you know what I mean ūüôā¬†
Champneys Cloud Nice Indulgent Bubble Heaven is available in Boots for £12. 

Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub 
You cannot have a relaxing evening without a proper scrub. This thick, creamy scrub is divine! It has medium grains, so it us not too harsh on the skin but it still exfoliates very well. I massage it on the wet skin in circular motion to get rid of any dead skin cells. The smell is quite sweet and fruity, so lovely to brighten the cold winter days and ideal for the summer. I used this scrub twice a week and it left my skin feeling smooth, soft and smelling beautifully. Remember not to use this scrub after shaving your legs as it is a salt scrub so it may irritate your skin.
Champneys Summer Dream Rewarding Salt Scrub is available in Boots for £10. 

Champneys As Good As New Heavenly Days Sleep Pillow Mist 
Lately I have been loving Pillow Mists and I tend to use them almost every evening as they make the cushions and bed linen smell divine and just make evenings more relaxing. What I found is that the more components you have the better your pampering session will be. This pillow mist is made with my favourite ingredients Рlavender, geranium and camomile, which have calming effect on body and mind. What I liked about it, is that the scent is quite long lasting so it stays with you until you fall asleep. I am a fan! 
Champneys As Good As New Heavenly Days Sleep Pillow Mist is available at Boots for £11

Hi Beautiful 

The January Libbie¬†Club is here with products that help you relax and prepare for the year ahead! For those of you who¬†don’t¬†know, Latest in Beauty has launched a Beauty Box for bloggers called the Libbie Club. The bloggers receive special offers especially for their readers, who can buy great quality beauty products for less. As always, the offers this month are great, my favourite are the Maddi Alexander Rose Soaking Salts! You can redeem all the offers at my page¬†here!

Maddi Alexander Rose Soaking Salts 
There is nothing better in winter than a nice, hot bath after a long day. This month, Libbie Club has sent me these gorgeous bath salts to try and I must say I do like them a lot! The smell is great, smelling like a bouquet of freshly cut roses, mixed with cardamon, pink pepper and Shea butter. 
The bath salts are infused with oils, nourishing your skin whilst you take a bath, so you don’t need to worry about dry skin after. The salts are filled with beautiful rose petals which look stunning in the bath. Love love love!¬†

DHC Cleansing Oil
If you have been keeping up to date with the beauty news, you would have heard about the importance of double cleansing. Double cleansing is cleaning your face first with an oily product such as cleansing oil or balm, and then following with a water based product such as micellar water. I think it is very important to use both as water based product will not remove all the makeup and dirt which can results in breakout as well as skin problems. 
This is an award winning cleansing oil and I understand why. It contains olive oil which is known for its antioxidant properties, and beneficial effect on the skin. The DHC cleansing oil melts away all the makeup leaving your skin soft and nourished. Best way to use it, massage it in, add water and rinse it off. The pump is very handy, preventing the product from spilling. A beauty lover must-have!

Eye Of Horus Sahara Nude Goddess Pencil 
This is the first time I tried a nude eye pencil and I love it! It makes my eyes look bigger, brighter and  awake even if I am exhausted! For best results, I applied it on the waterline, and since it is paraben free it is safe to use. It contains Beeswax, Carnauba and Candelia wax, as well as Moringa oil, which ensure that the pencil is soft and does not irritate the eye area. Lovely product, great for brightening the eyes!

SPECIAL OFFER! Free Scarab Sapphire Goddess Pencil And Sharpener with Sahara Nude Goddess Pencil, £15

With every purchase over £30 you can get £5 off, and if you sign up to newsletter you get 10% off as well! Enjoy!

Hello in 2016!
I am so happy I can wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope 2016 will be as wonderful as 2015. I  know it is two weeks late, but it has been so hectic that I had no time to post anything. The good news is that I am back! As always I have December favourites that I wanted to share with you, please let me know if you tried any of these and what you think about them!

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser
The Aurelia Cleanser is filled with probiotics and peptide technologies which help to protect the skin, revitalise it and prevent it from ageing. It is also 100% Bioorganic which is one of the reasons I fell for it. It contains Baobab which is rich in Omega 3, 6, and 9, firming Kigali Africana and antioxidant Hibiscus and of course the ingredient which are responsible for the scent so Chamomile, Rosemary, Eucalyptus and Bergamot.
I took this skiing with my friends and every single person wanted to try this, I am not joking, men included. It is such a relaxing treatment after a long day. The best way to use this is to apply it to your face, rub to melt away the makeup, then put a hot cloth on your face and breathe in the divine herbal/minty smell. You can repeat the hot cloth which I always do as it really helps me relax. A December must-have. (This Miracle Cleanser is available from Space NK, £34)
Clinique High Impact Mascara 
I got this sample with the Glamour December Issue and I absolutely love it! It adds volume and length to my lashes, making them look gorgeous. The brush is soft and makes sure you lashes are not only thick and long but also separated. I loved it during December as with all the coats, hats and scarves it still made my eyes stand out. Great mascara! (This mascara is available in Boots, £17.50)

34.4 Honey Balm 
I got this lovely balm from a lovely lady called Elke when I was visiting Slow Living and Food Market at Rosewood Hotel in London. Let me explain the meaning of the name first as you are probably all wondering. 34.4 relates to the ideal temperature that the bees need to thrive in the heart of the bee hive! The honey balm is perfect for healing and soothing the skin, and it is suitable for all skin types. It is natural, containing only 3 ingredients Рhoney, beeswax and kernel oil, so it is ideal for allergic or sensitive skin. I liked using this balm on my lips and cuticles to nourish them during the cold days in December! (Available from 34.4 website, £5) 
Dove Pure Care Oil Nourishing Treatment

I use hair oils daily, even before or after brushing my hair. It helps with smoothing the frizz and nourishing my hair, and is especially important during the winter and summer months. I really liked this hair oil, as it made my hair silky smooth without weighing them down. It comes in a glass bottle so it feels luxurious and the price is definitely a bargain! Made with African Macadamia it is a great choice for winter. (Available from Boots, £9.99)
Revlon Lipstick (Shade, Rose) 
When it is cold and rainy outside what makes you stand out from the crowd? A good lipstick! In December I discovered the lipstick from Revlon and I can say that I finally found a lipstick which does not dry out my lips and looks great throughout the day. The shade is beautiful and I wore it both during the day and evening as it is so universal. (Available from Boots, £7.99)

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter 
I would not survive winter months without a good, moisturising body butter. During December I have been loving The Body Shop Shea Body Butter. Whenever I go to the store I spend about 10 minutes smelling all the body butters, because there is always something new and I like the traditional ranges too. The Shea Body Butter is one of their classics, and I understand why after using up the whole tub during December. It is thicker than other body butters and super moisturising, so ideal for winter when my skin tends to get especially dry. I cannot say a bad thing about this product, and I am repurchasing it as soon as I go to the store! (Available from The Body Shop, £14)

Hello Gorgeous 
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and spent some quality time with your loved ones. I am sorry I haven’t been posting a lot but I have been very busy with the whole gift preparation, decorating house and of course spending time with my family and friends. This month I received a great subscription box called Dollibox. You can find out more information on Dollibox¬†website.¬†Enjoy!

About Dollibox
Dollibox is a new subscription box for UK based beauty lovers. Each month you will receive 5 personalised beauty samples tailored to your needs, featuring well- known brands, cult classics and niche brands. In addition it includes tutorials and in-box cards featuring products you will receive. You can choose to get a single box or a subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months. (£10 + £3.25 P&P)
Anubis Barcelona Polivitaminic Cleansing Mousse РFull Size RRP £12
What I love about subscription boxes, is that I can try all the new, and niche brands like Anubis. Filled with vitamin C which has anti ageing properties; orange stem cells which have antioxidant  and anti-ageing properties as well as hyaluronic acid which provides hydration to the different skin layers.   The Cleansing Mousse can be used daily, all you need to do is to wet your skin, massage in one or two pumps and enjoy. The cleansing mousse is a perfect product, especially for the winter season as it does not dry out the skin but leaves it hydrated, smooth and healthy. Plus it smells like oranges *-* 
Osmo Intensive Deep Repair Mask РTravel Size RRP £3
If you read my blog regularly you will know that I am addicted to hair products, and that my hair is sometimes impossible to manage as it gets quite dry and tangled. I tried Osmo products before and I was very satisfied with the results so I had quite high hopes for this one. Of course I was not disappointed. This mask is designed for dry and damaged hair, and it aims to ‘restore moisture and elasticity, leaving hair feeling silky, smooth and manageable’. Filled with wonderful ingredients such as Jojoba Oil, Patchouli and Ylang Ylang, it promises to moisturise, smooth, tame frizz and control excess sebum.¬†
You can use this mask as a short (3-5 mins) or long treatment (7-10 mins). I always go for the longer treatment as it works better. The mask is quite thick and creamy and it smells amazing, I found the scent a bit nutty, I cannot quite describe it. The mask made my hair smooth and hydrated as promised, lovely product!

Model Co Highlighting Trio РFull Size RRP £14
Who doesn’t love to add a little bit of glow to their face with a little bit of highlighter, bronzer, or blush? This product is a 3 in 1, allowing you to change your make-up as you fancy wherever you are. You can use the bronzer for conturing, the highlighter for brightening your complexion and blush to add some colour to your make-up. I preferred using them 1 at a time but you can also experiment with the shades and combine them together. It is up to you how you use it, I am sure it will look stunning whatever you do ūüôā¬†

Bare Naturals Pomegranate & Pink Grapefruit Soap РFull Size RRP £3.65
Another item in the box was a soap from Bare Naturals. It is 100 % natural, vegan, paraben & SLS free and it is handmade in the UK. It contains grapefruit essential oil which is known for its revitalising and cleansing properties, nourishing pomegranate and other oils such as coconut oil and olive oil. As you can imagine it smells sweet and fresh making it perfect for my everyday hand soap. 

Freeman Barefoot Lavender + Mint Foot Cream РTrial Size RRP £1.50
This foot cream could not arrive at a better time, after Christmas Eve and the busy December month my feet are in need of a treatment. It is filled with tea tree oil, lavender oil and peppermint which help in soothing and relaxing tired feet as well as reinvigorating muscles. 
What did I think?
I think this box is great as it contains products from all the beauty categories like haircare, skincare, makeup and body care so everyone can find something they will like. All the products included in the box were good quality and they worked perfectly with my skin. I would get it again!
The December box is available until 31st December so order soon if you would like to get those fantastic beauty items from Dollibox website!

Hi there!  

Hope you are all doing great, enjoying Xmas preparation. Since it is december, I have been doing some tiding up lately and I completely forgot to post about my empties so from now on I will be posting regularly to avoid these piles of stuff! I really like empties posts as I can honestly say which products worked well and which didn’t. Let me know what you think ūüôā ¬†

Mio Skincare The Activist Firming Body Oil 
I got this in one of the Libbie Club boxes and absolutely loved it. I really liked the consistency of this oil as it is quite runny so it absorbed easily into the skin and did not leave me feeling sticky. I felt that it was effective as my skin looked firmer within weeks of using. Great product, I will buy it again. (Available here, £29.50).

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion¬†
I think Cocoa is quite a tricky smell. It needs to be perfectly composed, as otherwise it will start irritating me after a week of using. Palmers managed to get it right and I really loved this body lotion as it was hydrating and really nourishing so ideal for the winter time. The only downside is the packaging which makes it difficult to get all the product out, but except that it is perfect. The price is another advantage as it only costs only £3.99 for a 250 ml bottle. I already bought a new one:) (Available here, £3.99). 

AVEDA Stress-Fix Body Creme 
This was one of my favourite products from this pile of empties. You can smell notes of the divine lavender which really help to unwind and relax. It is a perfect cream for when you are stressed out and need a little bit of aromatherapy. It is quite thick so it is great for nourishing the skin. I will be buying a full size pot as this is one of the best anti-stress products I ever tried. Well done AVEDA! (Available here, £36).
L’Occitane Neroli Orchidea

DIVINE Рthis word describes this perfume perfectly. You just need to go to the store to smell it to understand what I mean. The Orchidea and Neroli are so perfectly mixed together to create this amazing perfume. It is great for every time of the year and the smell is quite long lasting. Love Love Love! (Available here, £52).

Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Face Wipes
When these wipes were¬†introduced to the UK¬†market I received them to try. What I noticed was that ¬†they were different to the regular face wipes. These wipes are soaked in micellar water meaning that are a lot better for your skin, as they won’t have the drying effect. You are not supposed to use wipes everyday but they are a great beauty item to have in your handbag so whenever you want to clean your face on-the-go, you can. I found these wipes to be very good, as they removed the makeup effectively, and left the same feeling as micellar water. These wipes are scentless which is also better for the skin of course¬†(Available¬†here, ¬£3.99).¬†

Bioderma Micellar Wanter 
Every blogger loves this micellar water, I think its great, and I always come back to it. It removes makeup, doesn’t dry out the skin, and it is lightly scented. One downside is that it is a bit pricey compared to the drugstore micellar waters, and it is quite hard to find. Very good product, but cheaper alternatives are available.¬†
Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder (Shade Vanilla 52)
This powder does everything a powder needs to. It evens out and mattiifies the skin, provides light coverage, so it is perfect for everyday use. I will buy it again as it is genuinely a good product  and  it is affordable too (Available here, £8.99).

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer 
 At the moment, this is my one and only concealer. It privides great coverage, hides all the imperfections and looks great throughout the day. I use it daily and cannot imagine not using it, which is why I go through them like they are water! (Available here, £4.19)

Hello Beautiful 

I don’t know how about you, but I am loving this Christmas atmosphere in London. I love watching the stunning window shops, people buying gifts and the lovely offers that brands offer for the festive season. As you are all aware I am a fan of organic beauty, and lately I have been trying products from Evolve Organic Beauty, a brand that makes handmade, 100% organic products.¬†

Evolve Organic Beauty (link here) believes in making highest quality products, respecting the environment and of course it is against animal testing! I tried two products from their range a Radiant Glow Face Mask and a Tropical Body Polish, and I can honestly say that they are one of the best organic product I ever tried, not to mention the stunning packaging!


Evolve Organic Beauty Radiant Glow Mask 
Many people think that if a product is organic, it is not as effective. This is one of the biggest myths in the beauty industry. Organic products are not only better for your skin, but also for your health. This facemask is 100% organic, it is filled with raw cocoa powder, coconut oil, sugar, clay and organic Baobab seed oil. The clay purifies, the cocoa powder and sugar exfoliate and the oils nourish the skin. 

I used this mask on a cleansed face, preferably in the evenings as it has a delicious chocolate smell so combined with the rain outside and a hot cup of tea, it made the perfect evening. I left it on for 5-10 minutes and then washed it off with lukewarm water, massaging my face with circular motions to remove any dead skin cells. I am not sure when was the last time I felt so good after a face mask, my skin was perfectly smooth and glowing. This mask is a must-have, and I realise that I say it about quite a few products, so this mask is a MUST MUST have! (Available here, £18)

Evolve Organic Beauty Tropical Blossom Body Polish
There are two types of beauty lovers, ones who use scrub twice a week religiously, and the others who forget about exfoliating and when the summer comes they panic, use it twice and then forget about it for the next 8 months. Obviously I belong to the first group and I am always looking for a perfect body polish which will be thick, moisturising and harsh, as to be fair those are the most effective. The Body Polish from Evolve ticks all the boxes. It is filled with organic sugar which exfoliates, natural Tahitian coconut Monoi which is an anti-oxidant as well as almond oil *-* which leaves the skin smooth and hydrated. The body polish is fragranced with exotic Tahitian Blossoms of Gardenia. 


I used this product twice a week, even though I think one time would be enough as it is quite strong. I use it in the shower of course, ¬†after using shower gel and washing it off, I switch off the water and in circular motions apply the scrub exfoliate the skin. I wash it off with warm water and enjoy silky smooth skin! Remember to enjoy the divine smell of Tropical Blossom whilst using the scrub. The body polish is filled with oil leaving your skin hydrated, so you don’t need to apply moisturiser after. I would give this product a rating of 10/10! (Available¬†here, ¬£20)


Ania’s winter advice:

1. Hot cup of tea

2. Favourite movie

3. Facemask *-*

Hello Gorgeous 
I hope you all had a good month, and are already starting to feel the Christmas atmosphere. I did not even realise when London started to look so magical once again, the lights are everywhere, the ice skating rings are filled with ice skaters and the window displays look wonderful. This month I have been focusing on skincare and body care as with the colder months, I noticed that my skin is more vulnerable to damaging effects of temperature differences. 


Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask 
When I discovered this mask in Selfridges, I was amazed by the beautiful smell of the Manuka honey. It was the main reason for my compulsive purchase (guilty as always). Having tried and tested this tube of wonder, I can honestly say that this has become one of my favourite masks. It is moisturising, cleansing and has antibacterial properties, so it is great for all skin types.


I found this mask to be very hydrating, and also purifying, clearing out any spots and blemishes. I used it 2-3 times a week, layering a thick layer over face and neck, and leaving it on for 20 minutes, then washed it off with warm water. The ‘user’ experience is great as it is not messy, smells divine and is easy to remove, leaving your skin feeling smooth and glowing. (Available¬†here,¬†¬£22)¬†

Melvita L’Or Bio Extraordinary¬†Oil¬†
Recently, I was invited to a Melvita Press event and I received this Extraordinary Oil to try. As you all know, I am a fan of oils so this was a very exciting product for me to try. The Melvita Oil is 100% natural, made with 5 essential oils :

– Argan oil from Morocco (Skincare properties)
– Kendi oil from Indonesia & Inchi oil from Amazonia (Regenerating properties)
– Buriti oil from Brazil (Promotes healthy skin glow)
РPracaxi oil from Amazonia (Improves hair shine & strength) 

You can use Melvita Oil for face, body and hair as it has great properties for skin as well as for hair. This month I’ve been loving this product, especially with the new, gorgeous packaging! I used it daily as it is very nourishing, so it is perfect for the winter season. After a couple of uses my skin was silky, smooth, and glowing. The oil is not heavy, so it gets absorbed quickly into the skin, meaning you can get dressed and go. It smells divine, as it is a mix of bergamot, basil, jasmine, cedar and rose. Definitely a must- have product!¬†(Available¬†here,¬†¬£15)

This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up

Best. Primer. Ever. This is a must-try product for every beauty fan out there. I always thought that if you don’t wear liquid foundation, there is no need for a primer, until I tried this one. I don’t use a lot of make-up and I tend to stick to powder foundation as my skin is not problematic. I noticed that before I started using a primer, half way through the day my concealer and powder seemed to disappear and I had to reapply again.¬†
I started using this primer last summer when I got a sample, and since then I am obsessed with it, hence why I purchased a full size bottle. It is worth noting that it is a completely different primer to what you normally get, as it is a 3 in 1 product Рprimer, mask and moisturiser in one. It has a texture of a moisturiser, it is light and easy to apply. You only need a pea sized amount to cover your face, then let it sink in for few seconds and your skin is full prepped for makeup. When I applied my concealer, powder and bronzer, my skin looked perfect, and it seemed like I was actually wearing foundation. I described the effect as airbrush finish, as the primer gives your skin a boost, plumps it up and smooth out any imperfections. (Available here, £30)

L’Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream¬†
It has been a long time since I reviewed L’Occitane, but as a loyal fan, I always end up in their stores, trying products and purchasing new items. I tried this product last year, and got another sample this year. I always seem to try it during the autumn and winter months, and it just fits in with the cosy evenings, candles and winter weather.¬†
The texture of this cream is very light, so it sinks into the skin almost immediately, hydrating your skin. Like the whole Shea range it has a comforting smell, so it is a cherry on top during my pamper evenings (Available here, £26). You can use it as a day or night cream, but for night I would recommend the more hydrating version  Shea Ultra Rich Comforting cream. (Available here, £28). 




Aveda Dry Remedy

During the colder months, my hair becomes very dry so I need to use a lot of hair oil to ensure it stays smooth and shiny. This month I chose Aveda Dry Remedy, as it is filled with the amazing BBuriti oil, which ensures that the hair stays moisturised, supple and shiny.

What I liked about this oil that it controlled frizz so my hair looked smooth throughout the day. 2-4 drops is enough and you should use it daily for best results. The oil has a herbal scent which is very relaxing ¬†so I am sure you will want to use it in the mornings and evenings ūüėČ (Available¬†here, ¬£20.50)


Ania’s advice
1. Focus on skincare 
2. Use facemasks 1-2 a week 
3. Visit Winter Wonderland!

Products that help you sleep

Hi Sleepyhead

A lot of my friends have been telling me lately that they cannot sleep due to stress, work overload or for no particular reason. The fast paced environment is the cause of this increase in insomnia in the society. So what can we do? Isolate ourselves from all the stressful situations? Unfortunately that is not the option… but I have good news for you! This post is all about remedies which will help you sleep. I tried them during weeks when I was stressed and during regular days, and I am actually amazed at how well these work…. Goodnight ūüôā

Odyllique Lavender Cleansing Bar Sanctuary Spa Sleep Body Polish


Odyllique Lavender Cleansing Bar 

The Odylique Lavender Cleansing Bar is made with an organic lavender and extra virgin olive oil. The organic ¬†products are great for your skin as they don’t contain chemicals, parabens or any nasties. This bar is hydrating thanks to the olive oil, and of course it smells DIVINE. So before you do anything, run your shower, get in and use this bar of goodness to clean, hydrate and clear your mind. It lathers very well, moisturises the skin and leaves your skin smelling beautifully. If you are a soap addict you need this in your collection (Available¬†here, ¬£6).¬†
Sanctuary Spa Sleep Body Polish 
I got so addicted to this body polish that I use it almost everyday. The smell is just mind-blowing, it is composed of essential oils that clear your mind, reduce stress, tension and anxiety before going to sleep. It has a rich, creamy formula, so it feels very luxurious when using.

I love the packaging, as it is easy to use in the shower, and the deep purple fits in to the sleeping theme! Use this before going to sleep, massage in circular motion all over your body, close your eyes, and breathe in the divine mix of oils. (Available here, £8)




Clipper Sleep Easy Infusion 
After you take a shower, make yourself a cup of herbal infusion, my current favourite is the Sleep Easy Infusion from Clipper. It is made with a variety of herbs and spices such as cinnamon, chamomile, valerian, and other which are caffeine-free. They have calming and relaxing properties which will help you in getting your beauty sleep, and who does not love a hot cup of tea in bed? (Available here, £1.45)

Janjira Argan Massage Oil 
Whenever I cannot sleep, or I am stressed I reach out for a de-stressing massage oil. My current favourite is the massage oil from Janjira. It is made of Jan-Natural Complex, which is a natural extract that balances between Yin and Yang and it makes the oil smell so relaxing. It nourishes the skin, and helps in blood circulation. Another ingredient is one of my favourites- Sweet Almond Oil. It is well known for its beauty benefits, especially for nourishing the skin, it is not greasy and quickly absorbs into the skin which is another benefit. Last ingredient worth mentioning is the Marula Oil. It is rich in antioxidants, helping the skin recover, and leaves it feeling silky and smooth.

Many people think that massage oil is designed for massages only, but it can also be used as daily moisturiser instead of body lotions for instance. I actually prefer using oils as they contain better ingredients, are more effective in nourishing the skin and they help me unwind. Use Janjira oil after you step out of the shower and massage it in circular motion, breathing in the beautiful scent of Jan-Natural Complex. I guarantee you will love it and sleep throughout the night. (Available here, £26)
Maddi Alexander and This works Deep Sleep Dream Cream

This Works Sleep Dream Cream 
This cream is filled with a mix of essential oils, herbs which have stress relieving and relaxing properties. What is most important Рit is a natural product, which means there is no artificial fragrance. The scent is a mix of lavender, chamomile, and Vetivert. Massage this cream into your body to hydrate, nourish and relax your body. Remember to breathe in the scent and enjoy the aromatherapy. I am a fan of this cream as it quickly sinks into your skin, repairs damaged skin and has a firming effect. (Available here, £18)
Maddi Alexander Pillow Spray 
This Pillow Spray is the perfect mix of lavender, geranium and essential oils which when put together create this calming pillow spray. Spray it on your pillow before going to sleep, and feel the aromatherapy working. Great product for stressful days or for nights when you simply cannot fall asleep. (Available here, £14, Free P&P+ free bath oil)

Ania’s advice
1. Put your phone away 1 hour before going to sleep 
2. Use relaxing beauty products
3. Zzzzzz

I am always using hand creams so when this came in my Libbie Box I was very happy. It smells like apples and it definitely fits in with the Christmas season. It made my hands smooth, nourished and of course they did smell heavenly. I am loving that this month’s box is so inspirational when it comes to gifts ūüôā This cracker hand cream is the perfect stocking filler!


Hairy Jayne Floral Hair Perfume

Hair Perfume with Heat Protection freshens hair up between shampoos. If you find washing your hair a pain-in-the-neck, or just prefer not to do it too often, this is for you. It adds shine, calms frizz and fly-aways and protects hair from damaging heated styling ‚Äď all in one spritz.¬†The bright floral fragrance is made from essential oils (aroma compounds extracted directly from plants). The smell evokes a nostalgic feeling of sitting in a sunny English garden.

What I thought?
I think we all realise how bad your perfumes are for your hair, but Hairy Jayne has a solution – Hair Perfume. This product is designed especially for your hair, to make it smell nice without drying and damaging effects. It smells of fresh flowers, so I found myself spraying it throughout the day. It also works well as a hair booster, and it freshened up my hair whenever I applied it. Nice product ūüėČ
