Longleat Festival of Lights 2015.

I adore winter, always have. Something about the winter months I find romantic, perhaps beacuse i met J 6 years ago during winter. Last year my Grandparents (In Laws) gave J and I both Longleat passes. We were thrilled. The first thing we did was attend the festival of Lights as a family.

The festival of Lights is a Chinese celebration so of course the whole theme is Chinese myths/Beliefs etc.

Today J and I decided to head to it alone.. yet again I was so happy with it!

Autum and Winter Skin Saviour.

I know it’s only September but I’ve started to get my skin ready for the colder months ahead !

Every winter I feel bad about my skins awful/dry condition. This year I’m doing something about it.

Body Butters are something I swear by. I love Shea or Coca Butter (body Shop) as it is the best for my very dry skin, but as I don’t have any for now I’ve been using Honeymania butter (which was free! ). I didn’t think I’d like this …. but the smell is ok, not powerful and it really does hydrate my skin. It’s ace.

I also have the honeymania lip balm which was also feee. Perfect to fit in handbags. It keeps my lips soft and kissable. Pucker up …! It’s a very sweet smell which isn’t my favourite but I can over look that as it works wonders.

I’ve been loving avon products for my hands and feet. I use their Planet Spa Blissfully Nourishing Hand and Foot Scrub. It’s a creamy scrub with Shea butter in it and works well at getting all the dry, dead skin off hands and feet as well as keeping them smooth and moisturised. I like the smell of this, reminds me of popcorn. I Use it twice a week. At a bargain price if £3.16 (on offer) I’ve stocked up.

To keep feet extra soft after exfoliating I use Avons foot works beautiful overnight cream with moisture socks. This cream is lovely to use and mildly scented. I use this twice a week to keep my feet soft, smooth and hydrated.

For my hands I use Avons Coca Butter hand cream. It smells like chocolate (no suprise there) and is the best hand cream I have used, and I’ve tried a lot ! The scent is fairly strong but doesn’t lingire. I use this with moisture gloves at night twice a week for extra moisture while I sleep… as well as every morning before I leave the house.

Any winter skin saviours you swear by? Let me know. Thanks for reading xo
