SVR Topialyse Baume Intensif

Hi beauties,

I have another Laboratoire SVR product today, Topialyse Baume Intensif.

This is an intensive body lotion for severely dry skin so I knew this one for me. Topialyse is a surprisingly light texture that sinks in easily, contains Omega 3,6,9 and Niacinamide. It soothes your skin quickly stops the god awful itching that you can get with extreme dry skin conditions. Topialyse contains no mineral oil or fragrance so if you are having a sensitive time this would be a great option.

My sister has also been using this, she has got very dry itchy skin after surgery and she has found relief with this. I am thrilled that it helped her as well as it has helped me. Personally this is my budget holy grail lotion, I bought a 400ml bottle months ago and such a little goes a long way. I buy mine from http://www.easyparapharmacie.co.uk for £12.44 for the largest 400ml bottle. A fantastic find that I know will look after my skin all year round, I don’t have to look for an alternative option.

Till next time,

Skin Republic Foot Peel Foot Mask

Hi beauties,

I have a confession to make: I have seriously scabby feet. I mean so scabby I would be totally ashamed to post a picture of them. Think yellow heels….I’ll leave that lovely thought with you.

So I thought I have to do something about them. I struggle using my electric pedi thing, I find to make any difference I have to use it constantly and my back just won’t let me. I had heard of all these foot peels and I wanted to see if they would make a difference to my horrendous trotters.

I chose Skin Republic’s Foot Peel and used it for the hour and a half that was prescribed. It was only near the end of treatment that my feet started to tingle a bit but other than that it was completely painless.

It was after 7 days that I started to notice some peeling, only on the upper side of my foot which is baby soft. This product made no difference on my heels and stubborn skin under my big toe at all. So a complete waste of time.

Luckily I didn’t pay full price for this, it was one of my choices for my Latest in Beauty Box. I certainly wouldn’t be shelling out a tenner to peel the tops of my feet which are perfectly fine. Very disappointed, and I know I have to bite the bullet and go to the salon.

Senspa Relaxing Body Wash

Hi beauties,

Today I have a body wash from Senspa, in their relaxing scent.

I was really impressed with the Body Butter from this range, the fragrance is absolutely divine, it contains essential oils of Lavender, Bergamot, Patchouli and Geranium.

This body wash contains no SLS, so very gentle on your skin. This is what I look for in every product as it’s something that irritates me both in skin and personally lol. You don’t need to use a lot of this either so it’s great value for money. It’s £6.99 for a 200ml tube, I find one tube lasts me a good 3-4 months.

Relaxing Body wash is a definite repurchase, I adore the scent and it makes my skin feel lovely and soft afterwards and it’s brilliant value. Available at Waitrose and directly from Senspa.

Laboratoire SVR Topialyse Baume Lavant

Hi beauties,

A brand I have found some brilliant products from is Laboratoire SVR, Topialyse Baume Lavant.

The Topialyse range is for very dry skins, like the Topialyse Huile Lavante Micellaire I reviewed earlier. The Baume Lavant is a much richer texture and thicker than the oil, I have used this for cleansing my face and body.

Baume Lavant contains Niacinamide and Omegas 3,6,9. It’s a beautiful product to use, it’s fragrance free so great for sensitive skin. It’s been brilliant for helping to clean my skin without stripping and keeping my skin hydrated. Perfect for when I’m having an eczema flare up it’s very soothing and calming.

Baume Lavant is suitable for the whole family, it helps to relieve the itching associated dry skin conditions and keeps your skin hydrated for up to 24 hours.

This will be a repeat purchase for me, I absolutely love it. I bought this 400ml from Feel Unique for £15.00, it is available at discount pharmacy http://www.easyparapharmacie.co.uk for £11.59.

Feather and Down Melting Shower Cream

Hi beauties,

Having trouble relaxing in the evening? Then I have just the product for you. Feather and Down are a brand that concentrates on creating products that improve on our ability to sleep.

Sweet Dreams Melting Shower Cream is beautiful! Like the Pillow Spray, the fragrance is lavender and chamomile, which for me work perfectly together. The texture of the shower Cream is very luxurious, soft and unctuous. You don’t need to use a lot of it to appreciate the scent, the size of a 10p piece on a body puff and you will also get the most amazing lather.

What I really love about this not only does it help you feel more relaxed while using it, it makes your skin feel gorgeous too. No SLS in this, the base is sunflower seed oil so gently cleanses as well as making your skin feel wonderfully soft. Available at Boots, it’s massive 250ml is £8.00, it’s often on offer and available on the 3 for 2 promotion. Try it, I’m sure you will love it!

Feather and Down Sleep Butter

Hello beauties,

I adore the Feather and Down Sleep Pillow Spray, it is absolutely gorgeous. As soon as I smelled the fragrance I rushed to Boots online to place an order for practically the whole range.

Sleep Butter is so beautiful, it’s a gorgeous texture that melts into your skin. I use it all over and it’s been great for my dry skin. This also makes a fabulous hand treatment with the body oil layered underneath. The smell is divine and really helps me relax. It has a soufflé type of feel to it, and I find it easier to use with a spatula. A little goes a long way too so you don’t need to use half a tub!

Sleep Butter doesn’t contain any mineral oils, it’s Shea Butter based with Cocoa Butter and Sweet Almond Oil and fragranced with Lavender and Chamomile. It’s also good value for money, £8.00 for 300ml. This is a definite repurchase, in fact the whole range is, Sleep I find difficult at the best of times so I’m interested in anything that helps me relax. Available from http://www.featheranddownsleep.com and http://www.boots.com.

Lotta Skincare Botanical Beauty Balm

Hi beauty lovers,

I have a multi purpose product today by an independent brand, Lotta Skincare. Lotta is made by Charlotte who when starting her degree realised she could no longer afford the high end products she previously bought. As Charlotte studied Chemistry at university, she discovered what kind of chemicals were in conventional skincare, this led to three years making and testing her own products using natural ingredients that were beneficial for skin. Botanical Beauty Balm is one of her products.

Botanical Beauty Balm is multi use, you can use it as a cleanser as well as a moisturising balm for dry skin. I’ve used it as an overnight treatment on body, face and hands and I have to confess I love it!

The balm is Macadamia Seed Oil based with Sweet Almond, Coconut, Sunflower Seed Oils and beeswax. There are essential oils of Clove, Lavendin, Tea Tree and Geranium. It has a gorgeous texture, it is thick so you do have to warm it up by massaging into the skin. Perfect for as an overnight mask, Cuticle Treatment, Lip Balm, foot cream, any dry skin it Botanical Beauty Balm calms and hydrates your skin.

I love it, you only need a small amount as it is concentrated. I think the most surprising thing to me was the price, for 50g is £5.95 (plus shipping) it is SO affordable. You all know how much I love to find fantastic value for money, Lotta Skincare definitely offers that. Charlotte’s Night Owl Facial Oil is an extremely reasonable £15.95 for 45g. Check out her shop on etsy.com.
