The Body Shop Vit E Duo

First of all before I get into why these two products are my holy grail of skincare, I need to apologize for being MIA. Dancing became my full time job in October and things became so hectic I just didn't have the time to post anything worthwhile; and then of course, the longer you leave it the harder it is to come back... (I'm not even sure if I know what I'm doing.)

If things do become a bit quiet on here again, you can follow what I'm upto by adding me below!

Anyway, now that that's out of the way I can get back to what this post is really about!



I started using the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil along with the Vitamin E Intensive Moisture Cream more than a year ago. My skin type is dry-normal but usually more on the dry side. When it is going through a rough patch it is literally that. Rough patches EVERYWHERE. 

So I began searching reviews online of affordable products targeted towards dry skin. When I saw that Skincare Queen +Caroline Hirons approved of the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil I knew I had to try it. 

The Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil is £15 and the Vitamin E Intensive Moisture Cream is £13; however, The Body Shop also sell these in a set for £20 which is much better value and the one I keep repurchasing.


According to +The Body Shop Ireland :
  • Skin feels recharged, replenished and softer
  • Non-greasy, fast absorbing formula
  • Skin looks fresher, rested and more radiant
I have to agree with their claims as the thing I love most about this oil is that it really absorbs into the skin. You can feel it working and doesn't sit on top leaving a greasy film behind like many other products I've tried over the years.

I apply a few drops of the oil at night, leave it to absorb for a few minutes and the apply the Vitamin E Intensive Moisture Cream on top.
If my skin is feeling quite dry before I put makeup on, I will apply a drop or two before I use my day time moisturiser.

If you have dry-normal skin and it feels a bit on the dry side or is looking quite lacklustre in general, definitely try this Vit E duo. You'll be as hooked as I am!

What I Got for Christmas 2014

I just want to start this post by saying that I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with all of their family and friends and got lots of lovely gifts! I have seen this type of post circulating on Bloglovin' and YouTube over the last few days and the nosey side of me loves seeing what other people received so I thought I'd join in on the action too. I absolutely love all of the presents I received and feel extremely lucky- my boyfriend and Santa know me well!



From my Boyfriend: Luke went OTT as usual and didn't stick to the budget! I was so chuffed to get a Canon camera so that I can have better quality photos for my blog and film the odd YouTube vid. He also got me Yankee Candles, Soap and Glory The Next Best Thing Set, a White to Brown Tanning Set, a Strawberry Gift Set and Lip Balms from the Body Shop, a Rimmel Gift Set and a bag containing all of my favourite sweets and chocolate.



 I got these Studio Makeup Bags from Santa and the No7, Tony&Guy and Cranberry gift sets are from my brother and sister.


From Santa: I have already worn these boots loads, and I love the fact that they are something different from my mountain of black boots! So comfy and they look great with black tights or rolled up jeans.



From Santa: I have yet to wear these Boots but I know I will get so much wear out of them. I am so easily won over by anything with an animal print!


From Santa (my lil sis who reads this blog thinks Mrs Claus picked these out): I got a bundle of clothes from Missguided comprised of Co Ords and dressy staples which I cannot wait to wear in the New Year.



From Santa: I am not a label snob and absolutely love this tan Michael Kors imitation bag. I have already used the black textured clutch which goes nicely with leather/pleather. The leopard print one will be the perfect accessory to dress up an otherwise plain outfit and both of those are from Penneys/Primark.


From Santa: These are just two items from my Stocking. I have used the Naked Palette loads already and can honestly say I would use every single colour in it (it's not often I can say that about eyeshadow palettes). I love the vintage vibe of this metallic gold mirror which is a perfect addition to my bedroom.


From Santa & Boyfriend: Last but not least Sweets! An essential part of Christmas is stuffing your face! This is only some of them andI don't know how I'm gonna get through all of them but I'll definitely make a good stab at it!
