New In Beauty.





These are a few beauty products I've inherited the last few weeks or so, I thought I would do a 'mini' haul to showcase me newbies.

First up is Cetaphil Restoraderm Body Wash and Body Moisturiser, I wasn't expecting these lovely products to arrive though my door as I signed up on the Cetaphil website (I think) to receive some samples to try. Then suddenly these full-sized bottles turned up with a little letter telling me these were samples. Certainly the best size 'try-out' products I've ever found. I've only got round to trying the moisturiser so far, but it's perfect for my back acne with helping sooth the itchy, dry areas.

I actually picked up the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser before I received the samples, then when I got the samples I was so excited because I love this cleanser so much. As most of you will know I've been an avid fan of Superdrug's hot cloth cleansers for some time, but they started making my dry skin sting a little when I used them. After a little research I went and purchased a bottle of the Cetaphil cleanser from Boots. When I read it was good enough for Caroline Hirons, I knew it was more than good enough for me. I will get a full review up when I've finished my first bottle.

Two shower products now, I am loving oil-based washes at the moment. I've not had the money to invest in the L'Occitane almond one but I have tried out a Santuary one which I loved. So when I spotted the new range from Nivea, I really needed to give it a whirl. I picked up the Nivea Waterlily & Oil Shower Gel, which smells divine and leaves a lovely soft feeling after washing. I've also been hunting for a new gentle shampoo for my itchy scalp, I'd never seen the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Shampoo before, I actually found it in the Afro hair section in Superdrug. It's really soothing, and gentle to my hair and scalp and smells gorgeous too.

The last two things are a bit more random, I was sent the Aloe Propolis Creme from another blogger who had raved about it being great for your skin. I was sent it to try on my face and back and see how I get on with it, hopefully it's be fab for my scarring. It's full of yummy ingredients like Vitamin E and Aloe (obviously) so I will get back to you after I've given it a good go.Lastly, I have FINALLY jumped on the Real Techniques band wagon and picked up the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, which I have to say, I am in love with. This is just the perfect brush for foundation and leaves amazing coverage - perfect.

  1. I used Cetaphil while I was on accutane and it really did save my skin.

    They're great products, very simple and no frills, but still great and do the job.

    Like the sound of the Aloe Propolis Creme, hope it works for you!
