I first heard of hyaluronic acid last year – and the more I read about it the more it made sense to me. It is a little bit of magic that locks moisture into your skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is found naturally in the body and acts as a moisture magnet trapping up to 1000 times its own weight – excellent for the odd wrinkle.
I am getting a little bit older, and I am becoming more conscious of aging. I am not looking to age backwards, but to simply be the best I can be. Looking after my skin is a priority and I don’t have a big budget to do that.
I was delighted when I saw that the Body Shop Vitamin E range now has the added bonus included hyaluronic acid.
This product range, which now has some new family members ticks all my boxes. My skin is quite dry and I find that the moisture is really locked in as promised.
I was lucky enough to have access to one of those magic wand things you see in the shops that measure the moisture in your skin. The science geeky side of me likes being able to back up my gut feeling on a product range – the difference before and after was significant.
The products I tried are the Aqua Boost Essence lotion which is not a cream but neither is it a liquid. It is deliciously cooling and leaves me feeling really refreshed especially during the hot weather. I follow this with the Moisture Protect Emulsion which is silky smooth.
All the products have a fresh fragrance (I am fussy about things like that), and I know that all the ingredients are natural and pure, which means quite a lot.
I have been using these products for a good few weeks and I am delighted with them.
I was given these products to test, but was not paid for this review. I reviewed it because it fits my ethos about our right to feel fabulous!
Thanks for reading.
Christmas can be so frenetic dashing from shop to shop, buying gifts and stocking up on food.
I don’t know about anyone else but by this time of year I am tired and in need of a bit of me time, especially after shopping.
So why not buy a gift for yourself. Something festive but indulgent like the new Frosted Plum range from the Body Shop.
The fragrance is quite enchanting with sweet (but not overly so) extracts plum that go so very well with a bit of Christmas music and maybe a mince pie.
A while ago I learnt the benefits of layering a scent. By using the same fragrance from bath time to that final spritz as you go out the door, you get a truly deep, but not overwhelming, aroma that lasts throughout the day.
Perfume is after all the ultimate accessory!
As my gift to myself, I treated myself to a wallow in a beautiful bath with some Frosted Plum bath fizzers – I really like these as they are like big square sugar cubes and you can choose how many to use at a time. The skin got a little scrub with the matching body scrub.
Now let the shimmer begin. Lashings of Frosted Plum shimmer lotion to lock some moisture in. And then onto the most exciting of all the goodies in this fab Body Shop range, the Shimmer mist –a sparkly perfume. I finished my bath feeling all sparkly and Christmassy and even though I only donned a snugly gown I know I will be using this for an added sparkle over the festive season.
A little note –although there is a shimmer it is subtle and doesn’t make me look like I have been having a creative discussion with glitter (something all crafters know about)!
As all readers of my blog will know I love walking and am determined to improve my fitness. A little bonus for me a Frosted Plum lip balm for my coat pocket”.
I hope this post inspires you to be good to yourself this Christmas.
