The weather is finally perking up in the UK so I wanted to share my fave body lotions to get moisturised, smooth and supple skin. These are what I would describe as "special occasion" body lotions if you are heading out for the day or night, as they either contain some kind of sparkle, glow or rich scent: ☉@bathandbodyworks At the Beach 24 hour moisture body cream. This is a beautifully scented lotion that is rich yet quickly absorbed. The scent is very powerful and smells almost exactly like Seychelles from @thewhitecompany. Fruity, coconut cream, pina coladas and sun cream. Basically the scent of a tropical holiday. I want everything from this range!! Thanks to @ninasolanki for kindly gifting this to me
☉@thebodyshop Honey Bronze oil which contains shimmer and a subtle bronze glow on the skin. I love this oil especially the fresh honey scent it imparts. But why is it in this packaging which makes it almost impossible to dispense??
☉@bootsuk No.7 Body Shimmer Aftersun. This is described as an after sun conditioning cream for the skin but it is essentially just a beautiful moisturiser. It contains fine gold shimmer to give a subtle sparkle in sunlight. It is such a lovely formula as it sinks in but doesn't disappear into nothingness. Instead you get great moisturisation for a decent length of time. The packaging is perfect as it has a pump and feels quite expensive.
☆☆What do you use to get your summer glow on??☆☆
I so so want to start collecting books about beauty. Is it hard for you to believe this is the only one I own? Well for some reason it is! On my list is of course Face Paint by the beautiful @lisaeldridgemakeup, Making Faces by #kevinaucoin and Pretty Honest by @salihughesbeauty, perhaps also a @bobbibrown book or two.
If anyone wants inspiration for my birthday or Christmas list look no further
EDIT: It's my baby girl Ellie's 1st birthday today! I can't believe this time last year they were wheeling me into theatre. My husband and I were so relaxed this time around. An easy birth and a beautiful relaxed baby! It was a wonderful experience it's so sad though that she is growing so quickly. Please stay my baby a little longer Ellie
