I am still in complete holiday mood since I won't be starting work again till next year (yay!). I've been spending the past few days reading, crafting (blogging about this soon), eating lots of comfort food and spending time with my baby brother who's visiting from London. I've also been trying out quite a few new beauty products, many of which were gifted to me at Christmas. Speaking of which, my boyfriend earned some major brownie points for his creativity and thoughtfulness with my present ;)
Before Christmas I had been sniffing around under our tree, trying to find out what's inside this big box wrapped in cute Christmas wrapping paper. Turns out my boyfriend really did his research! He got me this awesome organic beauty read - "The Green Beauty Bible," which has everything organic beauty junkies need to know about from skin to hair, head to toe. It's an easy and interesting read that's perfect to flip through before bed.
He then took an extra step to round up some of the top rated products from the book into my Christmas box. It literally felt like a Birchbox on steroids! Being a huge organic product junkie it felt like Christmas going through everything. Oh wait, it is Christmas!
I've been a long time fan of the Korres Lip Butter in Guava, so I was very excited to see their body butter in the same scent. I've been using it every day since I got this and absolutely love it! The lotion sinks in so quickly and doesn't leave my skin greasy for long. The scent lingers only for a while, unlike Body Shop body butters. This is a plus because I get to enjoy the sweet guava scent fresh out of the shower in the morning, but it fades away just soon enough for me to spritz on my daily perfume before heading out the door.
REN Clean Skincare is completely new to me. Their Morrocan Rose body wash won InStyle's "best body wash" 9 years running, and the bath oil sounds too good to pass up. Can't wait to try these soon!
P.S. Starting to think of my 2013 New Years Resolutions... ideas anyone?
